I'm a pest, I know.
Buut.
Does anyone have a nice version of THE LIST we made in 2008? 55 reasons we love Takui? I mean the picture version, it's no longer available on LJ (it's been a long time after all..) and it would be lovely if someone could share it with me (my computers went through many difficult moments and I've lost it.)

Guys, I'm disappointed! Where are reviews? I need to read your reviews of Takui's new album to soothe my pain!
I can't afford it on my own right now, but since I'll *maybe/hopefully* get it for Christmas I want to read your thoughts! Awesome? Good? Bad? Awful? I've heard previews and it seemed really rock-ish and fun.

Takui's 2nd MV from his new album is out!

GET THE FXXK OUT! MV

It's a song in his harder rock style.  It reminds me of Up to Date both in sound and that it's a motivational song to change yourself into who you want to be.  At first, I thought the lyrics were kind of sarcastic ("Destruction becomes an addiction, do it right in every dimension...Get the FXXK out!", like a go ahead, sabotage yourself thing), buuuuut....I think that was just my super-cynical side picking out certain phrases ^_^;;;

On a side note, it's funny to hear the hosts introduce the song title so neutrally :P

I don't know if you've already seen it, but if not then I bring new video from UF licks in which there is a new MV from Takui, I think? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=89pnHKrhVmQ&feature=youtu.be starts around 3:03. There is translation, and well, lyrics are something else, I wonder whether Takui was frustrated while writing it or was it something else ;)

Hey everyone!

I've been out of the Takui fandom for about 5-6 years.  A few weeks ago, my iTunes shuffle pulled up 'Punk', and I was reminded of how fun and, well, good his music is.  I've always liked the acoustic/plugless versions of his songs (usually more than the original!) so I thought it was pretty fortuitous that his latest albums are acoustic <3

Anyway, all this to say that in my search to catch up on the latest Takui news, I found the UF LICKS channel which I'm guessing is a weekly music show featuring Up Front artists.  You guys probably already know about it, but I didn't see it posted in the community so I thought I'd share just in case!  Each show is conveniently time-cut for each song, so you just have to click on the "show more" link and look for 中島卓偉.

Some of my favorites! (in link form because I don't know how to embed with specific start times ;_;)
Calling You
To You
Television

Sometimes he does backing guitar and vocals for the other artists...it looks like a lot of fun XD
Tasaki Asahi's Rolling Days

I have to say that among all the feels Takui brings out in me, one is the curmudgeonly old lady who is happy that he's finally cut his hair in the more recent vids :'D

Anyone living in Japan and planning to go? I'm definitely going to the Osaka show but I really want to see the Punk side to so I might go to Nagoya as well. Anyone live in Nagoya and might want to meet up?

Does anybody know where I might find a list of magazines Takui has appeared in in the past? I'm particularly interested in Fool's Mate and Shoxx shoots but a list or any help would be great.

So, I was wondering, does anyone have any Takui pvs or know where I might be able to find? I've never been able to find any of his videos for download so any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

I got so excited I almost left our group, 'cause I missed right button. xD For everyone who is as slow as I am, here: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/takui24 Takui has another 24h live right now!

Good news, everyone! Takui will release two new things on the same day (02.11.2011), "Crap the Clip 4" and new single "3号線" (CDJapan tells me it's "3 Goki", dunno if I should believer them ;D.)

Also, I get the feeling that Takui is trying to slowly get rid of his eyebrows. He plucks them more and more *snickers.* Just go to his site, and check out new profile photo!
