someone posted this worthwhile article on japan nite at sxsw in austin this year and a mangling, scathing criticism of emily on the last entry. it's really bad. who is still subsidizing this minimally talented nobody girl to play indie japanese rock star for so long so badly? she must be only surrounded by men she's blown to be in the sort of bubble where you're apparently this terrible but nobody bothers to tell you.

http://rockoutjapan.com/2011/03/japan-nite-2011-sxsws-annual-japanese-showcase-leaves-austin-screaming-banzai/

on another note, i'll do my best to keep this journal here and play with some ideas to make it at least a little more interesting when i have the time, at least until nobody is reading. i made a twitter but i'm not very good at it, but i thought it'd be a better compromise for those who mentioned reading about my personal things when i'm reluctant to do that on the journal. my lj info has the link if you want to saunter over. it might be fun to try but don't be shocked if i delete it!

i really appreciate the comments and everything too. thank you everyone for taking the time to share your thoughts about this nothing space.

Wow that review is pretty bad... I had to laugh at the part about Emily making bedroom eyes on stage...that just so figures.

The rest of the review is so positive (almost disgustingly so) that I had a great laugh at the section about oh sunshine. She must really be absolutely terrible live - at least that answers the question as to why she doesn't put up any live videos.

Someone uploaded this to youtube. She's not awful, but it's still pretty subpar.

I don't know if someone has posted this before but this video is hilarious:

I always laugh at emiry's clown feet, it's also funny to see that she towers her midget boyfriend.

Been away a while now, good to see an update though. I went to one of the Japan Nite shows with a lot of the bands that appeared at SXSW and I have to say that the person's reviews of those bands are completely spot on, each one blew me away. Every single band gave their all and had so much energy, even if their music wasn't your particular thing, you couldn't help but feel a bit amped up for the show.

The review for oh sunshine, however, is hilariously unsurprising and seems rather honest. Emily just has one of those personalities, she absolutely exudes unwarranted self-importance to the point it's irritating to everyone else in the room with her. (With the apparent exception of whoever she's banging at the moment I guess...) It's pretty hilarious that she's making it out to be... or is making it obvious how she got in the band to begin with.

I wonder how much longer this train wreck will keep on keeping on...

I guess it's true, it really isn't who you know but who you blow. I hope Mikio gets himself tested just to be safe, I'm sure he's not Emily's first rodeo.

I think it's also particularly interesting how little footage there is of oh sunshine performing at and yet it looks like people have uploaded a shit ton of footage of all the other bands.

Yeah. It's really just a human interest story about the quake though... the media has been interviewing a lot of random Americans living in Japan ever since it happened, english teachers, students, business men, etc, to talk about Japan and the disaster.

At this point we shouldn't be surprised. I mean as someone mentioned earlier some user is trashing people on Youtube (I had to block him) using Mikio's name in the handle. We all had a feeling but debated if she was jumping his bones apparently the video footage confirms something is up between them. It wouldn't shock me if it was Mikio himself getting his panties in a bunch and attacking anyone with honest reviews or paying people to make positive ones.

saying she was conversing with a Japanese chef/cook at age 12? I think this information is just a -bit- exaggerated. i really wish she'd stop posing with guitars.. she knows maybe 3 chords, I'm sure.

Yeah that sounds made-up. When did she actually start studying? I always thought it was around 14-15? That makes it sound even worse, so she's been studying for 9 years then? She really should be better. =/(fuck off - DNW anyone saying I shouldn't be judging it)

Actually, that article says she moved to Japan at 17 but on her website she claims 17 was when she made her first video, which is more realistic to me.

And it says 45,000 friends on Facebook when she actually has 4952 because Facebook has a 5000 friend limit. So there is actually no way to get over 5000 friends unless she has a fanpage. c.cedille has 1000+ and oh sunshine has almost 300. Derp.

So that article is just bullshit. It didn't even take me long to find those things, so now I'm really sure it's lying about everything. Especially because Emily doesn't seem to like Japan much? Well in her blogs she seems annoyed constantly at things. She says it's interesting but "I'm tall and you have to accommodate for me!!!" I get it because it's the same way I complain about my city lol.

And given her music, I'd say three chords sounds about right. Just rearrange them in a different way each time and viola, an album.

There was once she said she learned Japanese through nothing but music and she actually stuck to that story for a while, I guess she changed her mind?

I wonder what was going on when this was written. Why can Emily and family never seem to stick to just one story? It's pretty bad especially when you have her in videos and blogs saying one thing and then they/she go off and say another.

Shame lol.

Apparently they are actually big enough to get their own website but it isn't set up yet. All it says when you try to go to it is future home of oh sunshine.

I don't even know what to say at this point. Her entire persona is a lie, because that's all she is. She is a made up character. Unless you write down all the details if you live like that there's no way to get it right. She just tries to make herself look good. I swear she's like the energizer bunny, she keeps going and going and going... I thought she'd have been done by now.

Surprised no one has commented on her new video yet. I don't really get why she made it. What's the point in quitting youtube and gathering twitter subscribers? All she usually does is post concert dates which the majority of her followers wouldn't be able to attend anyway...

Emily put up another vid on her youtube (and it's about as exciting as pulling a splinter out of your finger) Amazingly, she seems to think that people like her shirts so much they want to give her money for her shirt.

Sounds like she's mad that people haven't conveniently forgotten that it ever happened. The more she runs from it the more it will follow her and eventually affect her current incarnation/career in a bad way. Why can't she just address the issue and be honest? Is it really that hard for her?

It's really come to a point where she should (but she won't) just be honest about the donation money. People are now seeing that she is not studying at university but is doing music instead. Honestly, my respect would improve a lot if she just gave back everyones money and admitted it. Maybe it's just the kind of person I am, but I really couldn't live with myself if I had done this. I still feel horrible for getting a separate hotel room on my last night in Japan, making my parents pay and promising I'd pay them back when I got back to Australia (I had only 8000 yen and money took a few days to come over to my travel card) and they told me not to worry when I came back, but it's still on my mind and I am still going to pay them back when I feel more financially secure. (After I break from uni for a few months and don't have to buy expensive uni stuff and transport every week). So IDK how Emily lives with herself. I really don't. Doesn't this sort of thing play on her mind?

I really think if Emily would stop fucking lying, no one would ever have a problem with her. She would just be another white girl like that becky girl doing weeaboo things in japan tbh. And that'd be it. People would go "lol weeaboos" but it wouldn't be anything serious.

Her entire drama, is built around the fact that she keeps. on. lying. and doesn't ever stop.

She seemed a little confused up there on stage. When she was supposed to take start singing. Maybe they didn't rehearse enough or something, at least it seemed that way.

the only drug use of hers I can attest to is weed and heavy alcohol consumption. stimulants are the most prominent narcotic in Japan and I imagine she would be appealed by the loss of appetite, but relating any of it to her is (probably unfair) speculation. plus I have no place speculating on anyone's drug use or even criticizing it. that's an old video isnt it?

I'm on my phone so excuse any errors!
