We’ve arrived! The top floor of the new Marui One Shinjuku is your one-stop shop for Goth/Punk/rock clothing and goods. The old Kera Arena was a tad grungy and cluttered, but I liked it; the anarchic atmosphere matched the plaid and spikes strewn about. The renovated version is cleaner and better organized…

The citizens of Kera Arena haven’t changed. Qutie Frash delivers Wa (Japanese)-inspired clothes next to Zealink, Super Lovers, Sex Pot Revenge, Hellcatpunks, Listen Flavor and other casual brands.

As always, Blablahospital’s bloody and patched accessories stand out from the mix.

Love the stripes and color contrast. You can check out this post for photos of Blablahospital and ZoeStyles’ in-store event at Kera Arena.

Also on the top floor of Marui: a Visual Kei and J-rock-oriented music store!

A rotation of band outfits are displayed inside. Don’t forget to stop by the rack of free Visual Kei posters on the way out; it’s an easy way to decorate your bedroom walls like mine.

A photographer just took photos of Basil Farrow and me for a newspaper article… Fake purple eyelashes, dark blue lips, Gothic Lolita wallpaper background, and Scottish Fold kitty in arms! Can’t wait to share them with you.

Now it’s time to play with my new obsession: FL Studio (Fruity Loops), an electronic music program. Has anyone tried this software? For practice, I’ve been creating an Italo Disco track a day. Yesterday, I replicated…

    Aw mad! I love the wa outfits and the corset-style clothes. I think I'll like this floor more than the sweet lolita floors below!

    I have Cool Edit Pro (now called Adobe Audition I think) and it's crazy fun to play around with. I'd love to play around with FL or Cubase as well =)

    Hmm concerning Fruity Loops, my friends and I used to play around with it. It's pretty cool, but I have difficulty composing by a repeating beat mentality. I use Sibelius myself but it's kind of a grandpa program for people who like to compose the classical way XD I heard GPK uses Fruity Loops to arrange his songs, actually! It's been a while since I've used it so maybe I'll try it out again…thanks for reminding me!

    • Nice, thanks for the info! I’ve been looking at Logic, Reason, Ableton… then I got FL Studio and am liking it. It’s great for electronic music; I can see how classical sounds might not turn out as well on FL. Hahah I did years of music harmony, so it’s funny to dabble once more in fugues and cadences, albeit electronic ones…

      • Yeah I’m trying out Logic right now actually. It’s jam packed with features and a decent sound library but it seems to be made for people much more hip than I am…the notation feature is crippled in my opinion. Works great for “blocks” composing though. I’ll probably end up using it more for the production side of things since I need my notation for composition to be quite seamless. I have used Reason in the past and it is an EXTREMELY versatile program I think and also has drum sequencing capabilities similar to FL. I really like Reason’s set of sounds too. What types of things have you been working on in FL besides the aforementioned remake? Also, what did you think about Ableton? It totally made war with my brain and I speedily gave up on it.
