GPKISM Street Teams

Since all my desires (to make this fanlisting official and all) are over and done with, it's time to start my job as a fan and help promote GPKISM! I'll be starting off by collecting Official GPKISM Street Teams's links, official MySpace profiles, websites and other sort of links.

If you know of one and/or you own one, at that point, that hasn't been listed in this site, please leave a message in this very post.

Thank you so much for you help!

GPKISM Official Fanlisting

About a few minutes earlier, I tried sending GPK a message asking if I could call Lunatic Symphony as it's official fanlisting. And guess what? He said, okay! So from this moment on, this site is now the official GPKISM fanlisting, and with GPK's approval, of course. (^_^)/

*gasp* I just realized that in AU time, it's about past 2 am. Why is he still awake at this time? It'll ruin his skin. O_o

Lunatic Symphony: A GPKISM Fanlisting

I have made a fanlisting for GPKISM! And I named it Lunatic Symphony! If you're a fan of GPKISM, please consider joining! (^_^)/

I wanted this to become the official fanlisting at some point, but of course, I'll have to ask GPK for permission. Well, anyway, here's the site's layout:


Yes, yes, it has this Gothic elegance aura, doesn't it? I am very happy with how it turned out, honestly. I'm so happy with it that it makes me want to cry in self amazement. When I got this done, I actually told myself vainly, "Damn, sometimes, I amaze myself." *lol*

It took me a few minutes to crop out each and every image and about 2 hours rearranging the beads here and there to arrive at the point where I could be satisfied with how it looks. And the rest of the day, as well as the rest of another half day, was spent thinking of a name that would fit GPKISM at some point.

When I was making this, I have this desire of wanting it to look something dark and elegant at the same time, simple and clean looking. I spent a few hours cracking my mind on what to do, but then, I couldn't think of a way to show it. I came to a point where I wanted to just draw GPK to let off my frustration, but I was so damn frustrated that I couldn't even draw him properly anymore. I was constantly bugging Jeoffrey that I couldn't draw GPK and ended up working because I couldn't do anything, anyway. Then by around late afternoon that day, the idea of "what about GPKISM as a point of view of a fan?" suddenly hit me. Since I am a fan, it'll be quite easy to make. And then, I made it like that with GPK and Kiwamu's pictures over their CD and of course, my selfish love for Venetian Masks and roses (the rose is dead because I love dead things). The rosary beads, however, was added later on to portray my devotion.

Gackt in Hollywood

Gackt will be acting in an action film entitled "Bunraku" directed by Guy Moshe. He will be acting with Josh Hartnett and Demi Moore as his co-stars. And this will be his very first Hollywood movie! This news reminded me of Moon Child. His acting skills might not be that great, but he could be considered good. And this is not only an opinion of an obsessed fan too, you know.

Anyway, for this time's update, I just changed a member to pending since she'll be moving blogs. With regards to the pending members, I'm sorry about this taking too long but please wait a little longer. I'm really busy with work and I do not have the time. Really, really sorry. m(-_-)m

About GPKISM


GPKISM

GPKISM a Visual Kei, rock band whose music revolves around the mix of Baroque, gothic and industrial sounds.

Members

Gothique Prince Ken or GPK for short, is the group's vocals, composer and lyricist. He's not a Japanese, rather, an Australian (well, he told me so, and yes, I had the nerve to ask and bug him constantly too). His a multi-talented artist. Yes, aside from his musical talent, GPK also does modeling and fashion designing. In fact, he has 2 fashion labels - Neo-Zero and Jardin de Seraphique. Neo-Zero's designs are mostly on the cyber goth genre while Jardin de Seraphique's designs could most probably fall under EGA fashion line. This is, of course, is only my presumption based on the designs I saw. Anyway, GPK was a part of a band called Flood of Rain too, before his GPKISM project started late 2007.

Kiwamu is GPKISM's guitarist (and possible the programmer as well, but I'm not too sure about it). GPKISM is one of his other projects aside from his main band, BLOOD. Well, he is most known as the "Kiwamu of BLOOD" anyway. In BLOOD, Kiwamu plays guitar, does the VJing and also programs. Aside from being the the leader of band, he also does the art direction and publication designs for BLOOD, yes, this includes the CDs, booklets, flyers, websites, etc. As you can see, like GPK, Kiwamu is also a multi-talented artists. In fact, he's like a artist in full package.

Ryonai is GPKISM's live keyboardist. Oroginally, he is from a gothic electro industrial band called BLAM HONEY. BLAM HONEY is not only a group that produces beautiful music, you'll fall in love with their album covers, flyers, posters and other graphics too. Ryonai is not only an musicial but a designer as well. He co-owns the brand SUPPURATE SYSTEM which produces different types of accessories and clothing with gothic, lolita, cyber, industrial, festish, and steam punk as theme. SUPPURATE SYSTEM, as a fashion brand, has gain populrity amongst the visual kei movement. Popular visual kei artist such as Mana, Kozi, Kaoru (Dir en Grey) and Kaya wears them, for example.
