フィッシュマンズ・サトウの像を世田谷、日本、東京にBuild a Statue of Fishmans’ Shinji Sato in Setagaya, Tokyo, Japan

佐藤慎二は、最高のバンドではないにしても、最高の日本バンド、フィッシュマンズのリードシンガーだった。バンドは、ダブ、夢のポップ、宇宙の岩を組み合わせた画期的でユニークなサウンドを持っていました。佐藤のユニークで男女似の歌声も、フィッシュマンに人々を引き寄せました。彼らの最後のライブショーは、1998年12月28日にザ・ブリッツで録音され、翌年にリリースされ、以来ずっと最高のライブ・アルバムの一つとして知られています。 1999年3月15日、悲しげに佐藤さんは亡くなりました。佐藤さんと残りのフィッシュマンの音楽は、解散と佐藤の間もなく死に至るまで人気のピークに達していませんでした。彼らの音楽は、近年でさえ、常に価値があると評価され、世界中のミュージシャンに大きな影響を与えてきました。この嘆願では、現代音楽への彼の人生と貢献を称えるために、東京・世田谷の発祥の地に佐藤慎二の像を建てることを提案しています。 Shinji Sato was the lead singer of one of the best, if not the best, Japanese bands of all time, Fishmans. The band had a revolutionary and unique sound combining dub, dream pop, and space rock. Sato’s unique, androgynous vocal style also attracted people to Fishmans. Their last live show, at The Blitz on December 28, 1998, was recorded and then released the next year and has since then been heralded as one of the greatest live albums of all time. Tragically, on March 15, 1999, Sato died of heart problems that had plagued him his whole life. Sato and the rest of the Fishmans’ music did not reach its peak of popularity until after their disbandment and Sato’s untimely death. Their music has only in recent years received the acclaim it has always deserved, and has been a big influence on musicians all over the world. In this petition I am proposing that a statue of Shinji Sato should be built in his birthplace of Setagaya, Tokyo, Japan, to honor his life and contributions to modern music.

Release "Monster feat. HYDE" + HYDE's Music Across All Overseas Digital Platforms

HYDE, legendary musician from Japan and vocalist of the bands VAMPS and L’Arc~en~Ciel, has re-started his solo career. This year, HYDE released the following singles, “WHO’S GONNA SAVE US” and “AFTER LIGHT.” In addition, he recently collaborated with the American rock band, Starset, on a re-vamped version of their song, “Monster.” At this time, neither “WHO’S GONNA SAVE US” nor “AFTER LIGHT” are available for purchase on overseas digital platforms such as iTunes, Amazon Music, etc. NOTE: the singles are available on SOME overseas iTunes stores, but not all. The Starset/HYDE collaboration on the song “Monster feat. HYDE,” is completely unavailable for streaming or purchasing on ANY overseas digital platform. In addition, fans outside of Japan are barred from watching the official music video for the song “Monster feat. HYDE.”  The goal and purpose of this petition is to respectfully request UNIVERSAL MUSIC JAPAN to make the aforementioned content available to overseas fans. This discriminatory behavior is detrimental to not only HYDE’s success overseas, which is HYDE’s goal as an artist, but to Starset's success as well. We would like to support HYDE’s & Starset's careers in a legitimate and legal manner, but cannot do so unless we are given access to the digital content. ——————————- HYDE, artista legendario de Japón y vocalista de las bandas L'Arc-en-Ciel y VAMPS, ha vuelto s su carrera solista. Este año, HYDE ha lanzados dos sencillos "Who's Gonna Save Us" y "After Light". En adición ha tenido una colaboración recientemente con la banda Starset en una nueva versión de su canción "Monster". Hasta el momento, ninguna de las canciones mencionadadas están disponibles en plataformas internacionales de ITunes, Amazon Music, etc, tomando en nota que si lo está en algunos países pero no todos en general. La colaboración con Starset sólo está disponible en Japón y el video del mismo fue bloqueado para no ser visto fuera de Japón tampoco. El propósito de esta petición es para pedir de manera respetuosa a Universal Music Japan que haga disponible las canciones mencionadas para los fanáticos internacionales. Este comportamiento tipo discriminatorio afecta de gran manera el éxito de HYDE y Starset internacionalmente, siendo este una meta del artista. Deseamos apoyar la carrera HYDE y Starset de manera legítima y legal, pero no podremos si no tenemos acceso a dicho contenido digital.

Make an Artist/Preformer Exception for under 21 artists and performers in 21+ events.

It comes without saying, that its hard for underage music artists, performers, vendors, visual artists, to preform or present their work at any 21+ events. Unless you are a diplomat, a big record label or production company, clubs don't have any underage performers who are up-and-coming, and it leaves you hopeless most of the time if you are an independent singer, visual artist presenting your work, a DJ, EDM artist, escape artist, vendor, etc. who is under 21 years old. I have an idea for a special legal exception application that you can submit and apply for and send to your state that will give any artist, performer, DJ, singer, visual artist, or vendor (As long as they aren’t selling alcohol or tobacco.) under the age 21 the privilege to remain in any place that’s 21+, but they can only be active in any of those places for 12 hours per 3 months as long as they present their work of any sort at the place for at least 10 minutes or longer. If you are under 18, you have to have your parents sign the form. If your parents have any criminal history of failing to pay child support or tax evasion, they would not be able to apply for their kid. It’s basically would just be a legal license that you can get from the state that will basically make you eligible as someone’s who’s under 21 to enter any 21+ over place but only if they have some kind of art, or something to offer. Such as if they are a performer who’s doing a performance within the establishment, music artist like a pop singer, DJ, piano player, etc. Or a visual artist who is currently presenting their work there at a gallery thats normally 21+. You would get it at the DMV you would normally get your drivers license at but you would be able to get it there as well as your normal drivers license. You obviously still can’t drink if you have this exception and you still have to be careful about your conduct too because if you get caught underage drinking in or outside of the establishment, or committing any kind of crimes wether they are related to alcohol or tobacco while underage or not, your Artist/Performer Tab may be suspended or revoked depending on the cases. The paper work you would get the same day, and it would just be basic paperwork with a scannable barcode saying that your an artist or performer and that you can be in the areas as long as you are presenting your work. You can’t apply for it if you have any kind of criminal history of underage drinking for more than 1 time, DUIs, drug possession, smuggling, illegal immigration, assault, battery, graffiti, vandalism, terrorism, failed to pay child support, bomb threats, or you would also not be eligible to apply for one if your current under 21 drivers license or your current Artist And Performer application is suspended or revoked. Your application will not apply to you when you turn 21 years old. Types of Artists:* Music artists* Music composers* Disc Jockeys* Piano Players* Guitar Players* Harmonica Players* Harp players* Drum players* Singers* Pop singers* Singers accompanying a 21 and up performer.* Rock Bands* Jazz Bands* Visual artists displaying their work* Visual artists doing live panting or drawing* Comedians* Stand up comedians* Storytellers* Rappers* Scat singers* Acapella groups* Vendors selling anything but alcohol or tobacco. (Unless they’re over 18. Then they can otherwise sell Tobacco but not alcohol.) * Escape Artists * Magicians
