    The tweet translated is : DVD version of my parents' videotape collection

    so I would imagine.. no idea, I see Madame.Tarantula asked them for further details, so maybe we'll know more :)

    Edit :

    Also, just found this pic of Pre-Velvet Eden Dada :) a couple of years late : https://twitter.com/doruriro/status/873107939933863936?s=20

    Could someone translate what's written ?

    heutre mentioned a song that reminded them of BH's 'Enita' in the other thread, so I thought I would share this track, which gives me similar vibes to some of the instrumentals from Sad Mask. I wouldn't be surprised if Dada and/or Kalm were interested in Hans Bellmer's work.

    I continued talking to them for quite a bit through direct message, the video clip they posted is from a television performance recorded from a VHS tape. It is the only clip they had of VELVET EDEN (besides official releases, they provided me with a list).

    And that photo of DADA is amazing! I must have missed that at some point. Thank you again, @heutre! :)

    Also, while I'm in this thread (and I can't seem to recall if I ever asked here), if anyone happens to have the Japanese lyrics for VELVET EDEN's live only song, 'In the Well', please let me know, as I've been searching for quite a while so I can translate them. They were posted by DADA (either on VE's MySpace or his personal Mixi, I can't remember which) back when VE reunited in 2010 (it's an Aci era song), but it's one of the lyrics that somehow escaped me saving them. I've already asked DADA personally and he can't seem to recall what they were. XD Thank you in advance!

    I get what you mean ! It's a nice coincidence actually, considering Hans Bellmer made distorted broken dolls, and the Ultra song you posted has a distorted and filtered toy organ sound. Apparently the Vinyl only had a limited pressing of 326 units, so it's quite unlikely, but who knows :). It's a nice artistic parallel. (The song is nice too, thanks for the recommendation !)

    Cool, thanks for inquiring further ! Kind of them to provide you a list as well ! I don't know about In The Well unfortunately, but good luck finding it out :)

    Could you please post the list here?

    EDIT: also, if he did post the lyrics I should have them on my harddrive because I saved everything he posted on the Myspace page. However I'm pretty sure I don't have the lyrics to that song because if I remember correctly he never posted lyrics to songs which were only played live :/

    Sure! This is the list they sent to me:

    Film Noir
    Behind the tale
    Requiem
    SAD MASK
    SUTE-NEKO at TV show

    The last one obviously being the clip they had posted. The others are just the official released VELVET EDEN DVDs/PVs, which I'm sure most of us already own or have seen.

    Thank you, @Madmoiselle_Silk! I would appreciate it! This definitely could be true about the live only songs; however, I was sent the lyrics to 'Daydream of Specimen' (another live only song played usually during the same set as 'In the Well') by someone who had the Japanese lyrics DADA had posted at one point (I think some of them were only posted on his Mixi back then, which could be why they weren't found). They said unfortunately they had lost the Japanese lyrics to 'In the Well,' and only had a Russian translation of the lyrics they had done. I could possibly attempt a translation into Japanese if I had their translation, but I don't speak Russian, so I'm not sure how well that would play out. XD

    Thanks.
    I wonder what they mean with requiem? What DVD is that?

    I checked my harddrive and nope, no lyrics to in the well. If it was posted to mixi then that's he answer, I never had mixi as I never had a japanese phonenumber :/

    No problem!
    I'm assuming he's referring to the DVD that was included with their final release, the 'REQUIEM' EP, that had about three PVs on it.

    Ah, thank you for checking! There was somewhat of a loophole, at least years ago, with being able to get a mixi without a Japanese phone number. For some reason, as long as you had an e-mail address that was connected to a college/university server (as in, you were enrolled there and had access to it), it would allow you to create a mixi. So I used mine, but by the time I made one, DADA had pretty much foregone using his for Facebook though, so it didn't prove all that useful.

    I forgot Requiem came with a dvd X,D bad fan (have to be honest, I'm not so into the comeback stuff :roll:)

    aha, didnt know. I was dying to get a mixi account in 2009-2010 because Dada posted there, and someone even invited me but I couldn't activate the account without a phonenumber.

    I know this is a somewhat old post but I was left troubled with the idea of VE fans having kids lmao, not to be shady to the whole fandom but we have... quite a few characters to say the least (I'm not excluding myself) so I'm a bit troubled by the idea of that being a thing lmaooooo

    I feel like Toxic Queen is unappreciated, they really gave us the club hit nobody wanted (or was expecting) but that actually slaps...



    Also the irony of the title lmao, he really jumpstarted cancel culture and I love him for that. His outbursts were a performance piece that nobody was ready for. (let's pretend)

    Also that album art served. Were the shoulders matching the hips ? No. But did he made it work and did he serve it to us on a whole platter ?

    I mean, let me ask the audience...

    Yes.

    Like the customer we ate the whole entire plate...

    Forget 2016, I've been cancelling Russia since the very beginning here XD
    Even now I get a wicked grin every time some spammer tries to sign up from Russia and I get to nuke another /15 block of Russian IP addresses :twisted:

    I probably could just look up every block of IP addresses assigned to Russian telecoms and ban them all at once, but it's more fun this way.

    omg I was kidding ahahahaha

    Wait I'm curious what's the backstory behind all of this ? What have they done o_o ? I work in IT and I thought most cyberattacks came from China

    Note :

    Also attacking scapeforums is like the equivalent of going on war against like... West Virginia's knitting community...like what is there to gain, we don't have any leverage...

    Where does the attack that broke the main page and erased all the images come from?
