Big Music Update  

I present One or Eight, the extension of my Do As Infinity fanlisting for amassment's Fanlisting → Shrine Marathon. There's a new layout and oodles of new content. I'm really happy that this got done. DAI was my first fanlisting and it's been gathering virtual cobwebs with a tiny-text iframe layout for years. I'm glad that I can give it the attention and dedication my first fanlisting deserves. Plus, I've been wanting to make a non-anime/game shrine for a while and it was an interesting experience. With an anime/game shrine, the story is already there, and you have to pick it apart for the details. With a musician, you have all the details, and from that you must create the story yourself. It's fascinating, from a very nerdy perspective.

I've also opened another fanlisting for Park Bom of kpop group 2NE1. I've also started a Livejournal community called girlgroup for sharing news and graphics of kpop, jpop, cpop, etc girl groups and bands. There are big general jpop/kpop comms, and there are specfic group comms. Both are great for their purpose, but I felt like the Asian pop fandom should have something in between the two ends as well. The name is a clear one that will hopefully be self-sustainable later on.

Also, some music icons to share!

I love your new site! It's obvious that you are quite a fan. I don't know too much about Do As Infinity, although I'm glad to hear that they got reunited again. :) I think their song "TAO", which was their break-up song was the opening of Tales of Legendia?

Thanks! Yes, you're right, that's the song~! I gave Tales of Legendia a little shoutout on the shrine for that as well. Theme songs are great because they can introduce fans of the show/game to new music, but they can also introduce the music artist's fans to a new show/game. ^^

I think that's an interesting perspective, actually. XD I love your DAI shrine Ava! I haven't gotten to read all of it yet, but what I've checked out so far I've really enjoyed. ♥ Like I said at amassment, I was happy to see shrines to musicians pop up! I feel like they're such a rare breed. It's inspiring me to work on my own, but I've got so many shrines I want to do that none of them will ever get done. /__\ Your Park Bom fanlisting is lovely as well! ♥

Thanks, Aku! They definitely are a rare breed. It took me ages to find other music shrines to link to. I'm going to change that, one shrine at a time!

How did I miss this comment?! D: I'm sorry for the delay in responding.

I'll add Taeyang for Bommie (though I'm adopting her out, the next owner will keep the same affiliates). Since Big Bang works the Japanese market too, would you like to also affiliate him with SECRET and Do As Infinity?
