Official Announcement [27 Aug 2007|08:32am]

Hello guys. I know you've all been patiently waiting for JRC and getting info on it. JRC will be pushed back till 2008.

Reasoning being that a lot has happened in this past year, and JRC got caught up in doing a bunch of things for this year, that everything has to be replanned out again to adjust to the new ideas and plans for the next year.

All who have registered previously will still be registered with the convention with a special bonus.

Also, for those still interested in Karma Shenjing's cd and dvd, we still have those as well. Don't worry, you will see them again at many other places. ^^ We are helping get them out there so let us know if you want to see them at a con near you!

[ mood | happy ]


I want to thank each and everyone one of you from the bottom of my heart! It makes me really happy that many of you that had attend last year had come back again and still want to come back for next year!!

As the convention gets older, we will try to make it even greater by taking in all your ideas and suggestions to making it even better in 2007! We'd like to have more events, more excitement, and more crazy wild JRock fans like all of you! The staff works extra hard for all of you! So thank them please, especially our translators, if it wasn't for them, we'd be lost~!

Your excitement at our two concerts was fabulous! I will not forget how active and wild all of you are! All those that screamed, headbanged, jumped, danced, whatever, you are what makes these bands and us happy! Don't forget to thank those 6 fantstic bands for all their hardwork to get out here and rock out! Karma Shenjing, ArtBeat, Mars, Serafilia, lo:lita, and {mid:night} thanks for everything!

I want next year to be even better so make sure to send me your comments alright? Post them up especially on the forum! I always go there to look to see what you guys have in mind!

Bring more friends, more family, and everyone for next year! We need your help to make it the best. So let's keep at it! Remember you don't want to get JCON'D!!!

I send you all my love and thanks! Please take care of yourselves till we meet again! We will be promoting at a con near you!

You can also e-mail me at: yamiko@gmail.com if you have ANY questions.

Which reminds me... Did all of you get your Karma Shenjing CDs and DVDs? If not, you can buy one from us! Karma has allowed us to sell their CDs and DVDs to all their fans that didn't get to come!

CDs are $10 + $5 for shipping and DVDs are $20 + $5 for shipping. Please let me know if you want one! I know they will be happy that they can sell out of these cds!

And once again I love you all and I hope to see you next year!!!

Till then, don't get JCON'D!

Bassist in the Los Angeles Area? [08 Nov 2006|02:08pm]

My band, L2D is currently looking to relieve our vocalist of his current role as bassist so he can focus more on singing and I can have a bassist that I can talk to during the shows :) We're a really great group of guys in that we all get along really well, are extremely dedicated to J-Rock and capturing the J-Rock sound and audience. I have a lockout in West Los Angeles and we practice 2-3 times a week. I have great contacts for booking gigs at prime spots in Hollywood. We've got a gig coming up at the MINT in January and if we find a suitable bassist we'll start booking more right away. If you or someone you know has always wanted to be a J-Rock bassist in a band that loves cos-play then you need to talk to me. Check out our website and mine when you can and see if you want to audition. I am also a very respected bassist for J-Rock in Los Angeles and I have many years of experience. I am also more than willing to help someone learn L'arc songs, Gackt, whatever floats your boat given that you have the time, patience, and decent gear. This is a great opportunity for someone who wants to do something with their talents.

See you at the CON!

Howdy~ Sorry if this sounds kinda stupid. Okay, I'm here on the behalf of a friend who would like to do karaoke at the con. But we've heard that last year it was controlled by ipods and the sort.

How is this year's karaoke going to be operated? Does she need to bring a cd or what? Will lyrics be provided?

Art Contest? [11 Sep 2006|02:35pm]

[ mood | aggravated ]

what is taking sooooooo long to update the art contest?????

I come on the computer once a week for the past month and still nobody has claimed the first prize yet. BTW on the site it say's (or it has been on there since Aug.19...)"Prizes will be announced later this week. (We're still debating what fantastic prize we can give for all the hard work. ^^)"

I don't know about the other's who have submitted and have been waiting, IM GETTING VERY IMPATIENT! Who's picking the winner's anyway? anybody know? Sorry if I'm being a brat, but seriously. This is taking way too long.

Pre-Reg List Is Up. [09 Sep 2006|11:51am]

[ mood | annoyed w/ neighbor ]

Well if you go to the website, and go to events then click registration, then go to participants, you'll see a list of all those that have paid!

That was a tough thing to do XP Trust me!!! Now if there is a problem, such as not seeing your name it could be one of three reasons:
1. You didn't pay for your registration yet.
2. You didn't register with on the site.
3. You put a different name when you registered on the site from what you have on your pre-registration form so your name couldn't be found.

You can e-mail me for any questions and issues at: yamiko@gmail.com

This is a report of Karma-Shenjing's first and final oneman before a pause in activity. I thought some people on this community might be interested in reading it, but I'm snipping it so people on my FL don't get it twice.

The band have updated their website with the US live as the only upcoming event, so people who can make it there are very lucky!

Camino [21 Aug 2006|07:57pm]

[ mood | curious ]

Hey, awhile back I saw a post on here about Camino being one of the musical guests at the con. I wanted to know if they're still going to be there or not, because I'd like to know before I decide to go since they'd be the main reason I'd attend. Thanks.
