So he either does not know how capslock works(which would not surprise me), or he is pissed off.


Oh well, a lot of already dislike him anyway.

So when are they going to pay him to do an official anime theme song, already? 'Cus this is clearly where this is headed. Rolling Eyes

Red: I think he's just excited to see the reference.

If any rock star doesn't know how caps lock works, it's David Draiman Very Happy

Pretty sure Simmons is happy that the spread of his fame has crossed well into Japan. Like the article mentioned, he also made a cameo in a live-action Detroit City Metal.

i'm still seeing people say "still a better love story then twilight"

OR it's expressing excitement/accentuation of interest. If he doesn't know "how capslock works", you can say that to the rest of the internet. I'm sure if you've ever been one of the oh so many fortunate people to have dove into the pits of tumblr, you can tell that 99.77% of the userbase on there who use capslocks, are not just using them because they are exclusively pissed off.

Well, sure, then i'll say it to the rest of the internet. A lot of idiots don't know how to use capslock.

Happy now?



But to me, that looked that an angry post, which is how I will interpret it. If by chance I got it wrong, then he's just an idiot and I still have no reason to care.

CNN just recently did a half-hour piece on KISS. Yeah, while his other KISS partner leans more on the artistry, Gene is all about business. Part of his mansion is dedicated to all kinds of KISS merchandise. He estimates the KISS brand worth to be somewhere between $1-5 billion. Behind all that mask, he's a pretty smart businessman.

It would seem his excursions into Japanese culture via anima and manga, even ones not directly involving him, are proving more successful than his attempt to publicise himself in Britain by participating in awfully scripted music-based reality shows involving public schools...

I remember when Johnny Carson used to do Tonight Show sketches where he would hold public funerals for Dolly Parton jokes, and cops-in-donut-shop jokes...
So, when are we going to have the big public funeral in Akihabara for the "Recommend hentai/gore/yaoi to newbies" joke? It's been seventeen years, the corpse is beginning to smell a bit ripe.
