Aussie fan here. Thought it was time I joined up (had tried a coupla times previously but the little security thing would bomb out on me - dunno why it worked this time).

Not much to tell. I'm into Scandal. My favourite way to enjoy their stuff is to smash a few drinks, fire up the projector & stezza (stereo) and let the neighbours know I'm back in town.

I've somehow managed to turn a few of my mates into fans this way, which is kinda funny since we're usually into much more "macho" alternative or classic rock and punk kinda music. That and we're probably a little older than your average Scandal fans.

Big thanks for those responsible for this site and for the facebook group - its how I keep abreast of Scandal happenings. Sadly, none of them are happening in my neck of the woods. I might have to bring the party to them someday.

Any questions? No? Fair enough.

Thanks for your hospitality!

G'Day Mate !

I am a Pommie and definitely older than your average SCANDAL fan so welcome to SH Happy

Nice to know there are some people into Japanese music in Oz, not many here in the UK but we have been lucky enough to get a visit from the girls twice now.

Hope you have fun here.

Hey Haruna's Ears. 

Nice username you've got there. 
I love seeing people that are more aged getting into SCANDAL, I don't really know why but I just like that. And you are, as you described, probably older than average SCANDAL fans so I'm happy that you're here. 

Finally, welcome and have fun.

Hello Haruna'sEars.

First off, great name-- and yes, her jutting ears are what helps to make her so adorable.

Personally I have no problem mixing Scandal in with AC/DC and Rose Tattoo, and they also pair well with one of my favorite childhood metal bands from Oz, Heaven.  We're probably in good company.

Don't worry about the age.  I'm on the higher end, too; and since I'm more than old enough, I toast a KB Lager to you from crazy Hollywood.  Welcome.

Welcome! The best site in the world for SCANDAL fans is always open for new members. Glad your "sign-up" finally took! 

This place makes me wish I was retired so I could hang out here even more! It's the next best thing to listening to THEM!

Welcome to Scandal Heaven, uh, Haruna's Ears? [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] They said it already but I'll say it again, nice username! Kinda jealous didn't think of it myself. Haha.

That's a good recruitment strategy you got there. I also do that albeit in a much lower volume only for the benefit of the people of the house. I hope your neighbors won't get you in trouble one of these days tho.

Also, I saw your post about the Koisuru Universe MV lighting thing. 

Again, welcome pal!

Well, you folk sure do know how to make a bloke feel welcome! I'd thank you all individually but I'm far too lazy. Rest assured, your salutations are very graciously accepted.

The nickname: I had such a time trying to register (took 3 browsers) that my name was a purely spur of the moment thing, since I was doubtful it would even work. Very happy to be in the kind of company that appreciates the reference. The first time I noticed Haruna's ears, I yelled out "She looks like f**king Alex Kidd!":

Spoiler:

I love em!

Anyway, thanks again. I'm very happy to be keeping your fine company and look forward to sharing Scandal-related hot goss and playfully squabbling over semantics from here on.

Cheers!

Some of your words are definitely new to my ears, uh, Haruna's ears but I like to hear (read?) the way you you use 'em. Haha.

My English is Filipino English (see: American English) but I am always fond of listening to and reading different Englishes. Thus, I actually enjoy reading your posts. Just sayin'. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Ha ha. Cheers LK.

I'm just having fun with the written word since I can think faster than I can type. I think slower than I speak, however, so in person I'm more... monosybillic.

Um, yeah...

Cheers, cobber! Have you ever made the trek to see Scandal? It's not that far!  [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] 

In other news, I had a "quiet" one last night so I had me a bit of a Scandal fest:

Hah more like a trek to the airport to catch a plane. Nah mate, still waiting on them to come to Sydney. Its taking them a bloody long time. 

As for that massive projection of Haruna, I hope that wasn't a office presentation of SCANDAL. LOL

Probably not a good idea, I played AKB48 over the speakers of the Bus depot where I was a Supervisor and my Boss was not amused Happy

Ha. A coupla years or so ago I borrowed the boss's car while mine was getting serviced and unintentionally left a Scandal CD in there with the stereo at full volume.

He still reminds me of the near-heart attack it gave him to this day.

Wasn't sure where to put this throwaway anecdote so I figured I best just stick it in my own thread. Maybe some poor soul will stumble in here, lost, and discover it years from now. And be amazed...

Anyway, I remember a couple of years after first getting into Scandal and I was kicking back and watching their videos (again), in particular the one for Koi Mayou. Anyway, suddenly something in the background caught my eye. It was one of a few records that had been mounted on a wall. This one:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I couldn't believe it. Even though I could barely make it out, this was surely an album I used to listen to when I was 6 years old. Over and over again. What was it? Click below to find out!

Spoiler:

Ha ha. That's right. It's like a Halloween record for kids, apparently made in 70s. It used the scare the pants off of me. And I'd never encountered another person who had heard it, let alone owned it. How utterly strange it should show up in my life again, decades later, via a Scandal music video...

Anyway, that's my story. Thanks for listening. And if you wanna check out "Ghostly Sounds", look no further:

Spoiler:

Party on.

I did not know that! It wasn't too hard to pick her out, despite having her face covered. Made sure to take a peek at the behind the scenes video afterwards, too.

Cheers!
