Happy to see Flow back! I felt bad for missing them last year. Is Musicfest still going to be on the same day or will it split up into two different days like last year?

Yay!  I wasn't able to attend their performance last year cause I was stuck taking my middle school orchestra on a music festival trip to Anaheim.  I'm super excited that I finally get to watch FLOW live!

...I still got a killer autograph from them last year!

*deep breaths*

I am very glad FLOW is coming back again. They were awesome last year, and this year I will actually be there for more than one day, so I should be able to attend the Q&A as well.

Since they are still my favourite active band (and second favourite band of all time.)

I am just hoping the Equipment is set up properly this year.
Last year they sounded terrible because of improperly setup Equipment.

In their "Hello we'll be coming back to Fanime 2011" video, they only said that it'd be available digitally starting May 10th...[?], I would assume via iTunes, but still no news as to if they'll be selling hard copies. I don't think they have an overseas rep. (Marumusic, Japfiles??) to manufacture the albums at a price that ISN'T the Japanese standard of $45+/album...

Though I'd love to pick up a copy...xD

I find it a bit odd that this isn't pinned while the Yuya Matsushita thread is.

Anyway, having not being able to see them perform last year (was only able to attend on Saturday, I believe MusicFest was on Thursday or Friday), I am very excited to see that they are returning again and that I should be able to see them this time as I'm attending for the full weekend this year (Hopefully it's not on Day Zero, though...).

... (Hopefully it's not on Day Zero, though...).

I think it's bc this thread's new (up yesterday), so mods haven't had a chance to sticky it yet.
Also~ In the Yuya thread, MF staffers already said that MF festivities will only be on Saturday, so it won't conflict with the Masquerade... :)

Thank you for putting it on Saturday....I wasn't able to see them last year because of the fact that I was doing swap meet.....

Post by: .::midnight.maiden::. on April 25, 2011, 04:35:15 PM
I am thrilled that FLOW is coming to visit us again! They're like family to us now ^w^
And they are also going to increase their rep by going to Anime Central. I hope they get as much love in the Midwest as they do here!

Hopefully we won't have any technical difficulties...

Considering that Yuya's show will be around 8pm...FLOW's show will be earlier I suppose. Within the afternoon.

Post by: PinkBlossom89 on April 25, 2011, 08:46:33 PM
First off, how excited and beyond happy Music Fest invited *Flow* to return for 2011 ;D ;D ;D(WIN)...Last year‘s performance was amazing and I left happy. This year which will be no different, yet here’s what I’m a bit confused about the concert times? I know there’s going to be attendee’s who are going to attend Yuya’s concert while other’s will attend Flow’s or want to attend both? Now here’s my question how’s the concert’s going to work? I mean personally this is Yuya’s first time to Fanime & his debut in the states his concert should start first & wrap up the evening with Flow?! Yet it’s up to the staff to make the decisions , however is it going to be attendee ‘s who want to see Yuya’s concert line up & go in while those who want to see Flow’s concert wait until their concert starts ? Cause it wouldn’t be fair >:( >:( if those who waited for one concert then after it ends the next Music Fest act starts right after? ??? ??? ???

Post by: Xanreo on April 26, 2011, 02:04:04 AM
Are the schedules confirmed yet?
I haven't read anything about Yuya Matsushita and FLOW performing on the same night.
Title: Re: FLOW at FanimeCon 2011 - MusicFest Guest of Honor
Post by: PinkBlossom89 on April 26, 2011, 07:11:53 AM
Yes Both Yuya & Flow are performing on the same day, due to conflicts of last year so i the end all Music Fest Concerts will be taking place on a Sat. To me personally, it's a pain  >:( however things change over a year period :-\
Title: Re: FLOW at FanimeCon 2011 - MusicFest Guest of Honor
Post by: Acid_Android on April 26, 2011, 08:33:10 AM
...Please don't jump to conclusions without official word from staff =/

(Where did people read that Yuya's concert will start at 8pm...???)

In any case...

For those of you who remember how MusicFest used to be 2004-2005 where it was ONE CONTINUOUS concert, it'll be like that this year. You won't be forced to leave the Civic at the end of one set to line up again for the next set...that just doesn't make sense. o_O
Title: Re: FLOW at FanimeCon 2011 - MusicFest Guest of Honor
Post by: PinkBlossom89 on April 26, 2011, 12:56:58 PM
wait a minute..you mean to tell me, in order to see one performance we have to sit through until that act comes on? That doesn't seem a bit fair if some of us are traveling out a distance to Fanime?! >:( >:( >:( To be honest I don't know Yuya's work to well, that's why I personally thought it's two acts performing at different times which means people who are big fans of Yuya can line up & see the guy perform & etc..etc ..because I know how the line is going to be ..so I guess that's how the cookie crumbles in this case  :( :( :( I really wish it the schedule from last year cause there were two acts on two different days it was a bit easy to understand, now it's all confusing  ??? ??? ???

Post by: chifunii on April 26, 2011, 02:42:51 PM
Nthe doors stay open, so just wander in whenever you wander in...?
While Musicfest is the reason why I'm so excited for fanime every year, the events are pretty much planned for Fanime as a whole...which means coordinating time-wise for big events. Every year is trial-and-error (ohoho An Cafe...), so we'll just see how it all works out hm?

Last year the doors did stay open for the entire duration--sOme people just walked it bc they thought it was worth checking out xD
I don't mind either way...I like both artists performing this year, so I can't really represent or stand behind any dissatisfaction anybody else may have...

I see.
Other than the monster line that will form, it'll be great to be able to attend Friday night's events since I can knock out Musicfest all in one night.

Post by: Acid_Android on April 26, 2011, 07:26:04 PM
Can't please everybody, but we have to work with what we're given.

And who knows, you may end up liking Yuya's music, too? That's the whole point of MusicFest...to bring established fan-favorites like FLOW, but to also introduce new artists/bands coming into the scene who may have some really decent connections to anime and/or may appeal to the general audience that comes to FanimeCon.

But the general way to get into MusicFest is pretty simple: you line up, you grab a seat, and just let yourself enjoy the show.

If you were to see FLOW in Japan, you'd probably have to sit through several bands before reaching FLOW's set since they tend to do shows with up to 3-4 other bands.  Recently, a lot of their one-man lives are limited and/or only for fanclub members.

SWEET! Thanks for giving everyone a second chance to see them! (I seem to remember reading more than one broken-hearted post last year from those who couldn't make it...)

I went last year, not really knowing much about them, and had an absolute blast. Everyone who went with me had an awesome time too, and now we can actually repeat that experience!

Think of it as one LONG concert. Yuya will most likely come out and perform first, and then FLOW will follow almost immediately after his performance is over. Boom, all of Musicfest at once. :)

I was absolutely shocked when they started playing 1/3 junjou na kanjou!! I've loved that song for years, it's such an iconic song in the anime industry, even though I found it through Pop Japan TV and not anime. :P And RYUUSEI! That's my FAVORITE FLOW song! That and Life is Beautiful, but I didn't expect either songs, so I was ecstatic when they played Ryuusei!

Does anyone have the playset for Yuya Matsushita?? I wish I listened to him more before Fanime, he was SO sexy live. @__@ There's one song where he kept repeating this word over and over, very sexy dance song, I want that song so badly! Anyone have any idea what I'm talking about?? XD

I think you might be talking about "I'm Sexy" or "Secret Love". I actually kept track of the songs he performed, but it's written down somewhere on a piece of paper in my luggage. I'll post it if anyone really wants it.

^When did all this Yuya love pop up? xD Not that I mind it, though it'd probably be smart to direct this conversation to to the Yuya thread. I'm curious about the setlist as well, for memory's sake.

I'm still trying to gather my thoughts...But...

--I felt that FLOW's live was a lot more fun to attend than Yuya's, it all depends on what you're looking for in a concert, though.

--Global warming brought in some rain while I was waiting in line. Compared to last year when I was practically baking, it was a nice change (but i didn't have an umbrella heh).

--Nice people in line: Around noon or so I met a really nice mom who was holding her daughter's place in line while her daughter went to Yuya's Q&A. To this mother-daughter duo from Sacramento: It was great to meet you! :) Somebody mistook you for my mom! xD

--A packed house! Really happy to see so many people waiting to see Yuya and FLOW (or in my case, both). In comparison to last year, this was very impressive!!! /happy

--The person (Chris? I think was his name...) who was watching the first row to make sure they didn't pass the while line was really nice about it. He'd give us a little 'back up!' motion to get us back behind the line rather than yell at us. It's a little difficult to calculate where you'll land after being shoved around mid-jump, and anyone who attended knew we did a lot of jumping. So kudos and cookies to the nice staff guy :))!!


And to all the great people I met in all the lines (SOOO many lines!), hello!! Feel free to FB me (just search up ' Chifunii ' and you should be able to find me. :D

*Back to FLOW*

Does anyone happen to know which songs were performed and in what order they were performed during the FLOW concert?

@chifunii: yeah totally agree FLOW was a lot more energetic, but it's probably from the kind of songs that they sing (yuya's more like mellow-ish lol). compared to last year though it was freaking PACKED inside.

the staff was hella nice though, even though we weren't supposed to be in the aisles in the front they just let it go haha.

my only complaint was there was a guy during the FLOW concert that kept pushing people around in the front row, but yeah ;)

I was absolutely shocked when they started playing 1/3 no junjou na kanjou!! I've loved that song for years, it's such an iconic song in the anime industry, even though I found it through Pop Japan TV and not anime. :P And RYUUSEI! That's my FAVORITE FLOW song! That and Life is Beautiful, but I didn't expect either songs, so I was ecstatic when they played Ryuusei!

Does anyone have the playset for Yuya Matsushita?? I wish I listened to him more before Fanime, he was SO sexy live. @__@ There's one song where he kept repeating this word over and over, very sexy dance song, I want that song so badly! Anyone have any idea what I'm talking about?? XD

I'm so glad there was someone else who felt the same way! The anime that got me into this whole crazy adventure 8 years ago was Rurouni Kenshin, and 1/3 Junjou na Kanjou(one of the ending songs from it) was the first Japanese song I learned how to sing, so when I heard them playing it, I promptly freaked out and got up and started singing along, haha xD I could tell hardly anyone knew what it was (understandably so, the song is at least from 1996 or earlier, from a not well known artist), but it was actually one of the most memorable moments of the convention for me.

They definitely put on a great show. : )

Okay, so I'm going to ask if anyone knows where I can still get the FLOW "On the Line" t-shirt. Unfortunately, I had decided to buy the t-shirt the next day, but by the end of the day I planned this, it was sold out.

Actually it was mainly 3 guys behind him pushing him. They were unfortunately non-musicfest staff that were dealt with after the concert. There is only so much we can do and we were trying our best to let people have as much fun without being too strict. The one time someone got too rowdy by putting his friend on his shoulders, I walked through and angrily made them get down. (Which is the only time during the concert I made an unhappy face)

I will admit you guys respected the line very well (we supremely appreciate this). Part of running Musicfest is not only making sure the bands are taken care of/soundcheck etc, but also that the concert runs well and that the fans are having a great time and it can be difficult to find a happy medium.

Most likely not unless someone puts it on ebay. They don't ship their merch to the US through their online store so unless you know someone in Japan. Sorry!
The shirts and cds pretty much sold out instantly after the concert/beginning of next day due to 1) the incredible concert 2) people wanting things to be signed at the autograph session.

Mm, it was pretty rowdy right behind my friend, she told her fair share of stories about the guys being a little obnoxious and crushing her, etc. But she had a great time regardless (my very first FLOW convert--I gotta say, I'm a little proud), since we both knew that stuff was bound to happen one way or another. Glad nothing big came of it though. I remember that unhappy face to be a little like >:|

What I found to be very helpful to having fun/minimizing harsh feelings: Introducing myself to the people I stood next to. From both ends, it's hard to be mean when you know each other. Plus, you're both there for the same people, make friends. True story!

@midnight maiden
You can also try lurking around LJ communities, it might take a little time for people to want to sell their shirt, but it just might turn up. I've made it a point (after my XL LM.C shirt last year...it's like a sack...) to get my goods as early as I can.

@cottoncandymuffin
Whhhaatt, far left or far right? Can't believe I was close to you without knowing it--I probably should've introduced myself on the forum a little sooner. The more the merrier! I basically went through every day of Fanime with people I met one year ago (on the last day of Fanime) and hadn't seen since. Next year, for sure. FB is good. :) And it's short people like us that have to stick together 8D hahahah :}

It wasn't really a gift, but I did make a shirt that said "We are fighting dreamers" on it and went to the autograph session with it on. They took a picture of it and put in on their official website (http://www.flow.mu/09/blog/index1.php). Iwasaki-san wrote "I'm glad" underneath the picture.  :)

Who gave them the donuts?

I don't know about the donuts...but I don't think it was a gift...Probably just some food? ><; Kohshi's being upset at Japan's rainy weather right now (I went back to check the blog when you mentioned your shirt)...little does he know that it's raining here too. xD

For the color choice...it was totally a coincidence, but when I looked at the shirt and their CD cover, I realized I matched it XD. I was shocked when I saw it up on their blog. They also commented on the Madoka pins on my purse that you can see in the picture and asked me if I watched the show. They aren't kidding when they say they like anime...it was a great moment.

At least the weather was somewhat nice when they visited.

I'm also happy that they did the concert on Saturday this year. Last year, even though I easily got one of the front rows, it was a shame to see empty seats just because it was Friday. I'm glad they got to see just how crazy big their fan base is this year.

Your shirt was destined to be that color!! :P
I barely made it last year...I rushed over right when class ended. They were probably a little disheartened to see so few people there last year--I'm glad as well, that they got to see the real bulk of their fanbase. Combining it with Yuya's concert wasn't a bad idea either (though I heard there was a line outside to get in?!). I hope everyone who wanted to see them got the chance to...

Unfortunately we had to turn some people away since we were at max capacity in the Civic Center. Majority of the people in line were waiting for Flow since there were Yuya things going on at the time people had already lined up. (I made a couple rounds to chat w/ people waiting in line).

I came to see FLOW but went in line when musicfest started so Yuya was a bonus performance for me really.

@meowdesu: I saw your shirt while we were waiting in line! I thought it was awesome! Its so cool that iwasaki posted it on their main page u most feel awesome!

Is there anyway of knowing if they got their gifts or not? perhaps someone knows someone they can ask to answer this! We would greatly appreciate it! :D

Overall, I really enjoyed FLOW's concert :D They showed the same energy and enthusiasm as last year! <3 I hardly knew any of their songs (was trying to make a tracklist) so I'll try to be prepared if they ever come again ^^

The only thing that disappointed me were the fans during Yuya's concert. Before his encore started, people were shouting "FLOW FLOW FLOW!!" Excuse me but it was still Yuya's turn and I thought it was extremely rude ;___; There were a few "YUYA YUYA!"'s but I could barely hear them.

Gah....yeah, I felt really bad about that. I was cheering for FLOW and didn't realize he would do the encore, then felt like a jerk when he came back out on stage. I hope he didn't take it personally to hear that. He was a fantastic act all on his own. My friend, who was not there to watch him, actually turned out liking his performance a lot. My other friends who knew nothing of his work, said he was like a mix of Michael Jackson and Usher, which I think is a great compliment.

^Were you up front too? I kept getting shoved and pushed around by a reallllly tall sweaty guy. Being 5' tall, it's not so fun. But what can you do, things like that are bound to happen at concerts...Yay for staffffffffff~

I was stuck right behind that guy for most of the concert, and stuck next to his friend who kept pushing people, and his other friend who kept bumping into people, and was hitting people in the face when she started swinging her shirt around on NUTS BANG!!!. And they nearly knocked me over when they put their friend on the second guy's shoulders.

But that was the only bad part, otherwise the concert was amazing (par for FLOW). LOVED that they played Ryusei and Around the World (my sister's favourite song), and was happily surprised they did LUNA (though I had a feeling they were going to) and Sono Saki ni wa... I pretty much expect they won't do my favourite at Fanime (Fuyu no Amaoto) but hope in years to come they will do some of my other favourites (Garden, SOUL RED, Bring it On).

And I was really hoping they would do 1/3. Being a die-hard SIAM SHADE fan I went crazy when the single was first announced (especially after a string of bad covers this winter) and when Takeshi mentioned on the blog that Daita (ex-SIAM SHADE guitarist) was going to help arrange and guest on the single I had double faith it would be amazing. And they didn't disappoint. It is the only good cover of 1/3. (imho) And when it started I went absolutely crazy, screaming my heart out with excitement. And had one of the people near look at me like: 'What is your problem?' I was singing along at the top of my lungs. (Okay, granted, I was doing that with all of the other songs too... XD)

And was so excited to get the sneak preview of their new single HEY! It sounds absolutely amazing. Can't wait for August for it to come out. *heads over to Amazon.jp to see if it's on pre-order yet*

So it was an amzing concert, just like last year, and I certainly hope they come back again next year! Now my next goal is to get back over to Japan to see them live there.

I'm sure anyone would make a mistake like that. A lot more people became his fan after the concert! The line for his second autograph was huge compared to his first session. :O Haha I'm glad your friend enjoyed his concert!

@MeowDesu: I've heard people say that alot about him, that's he's like a mix of MJ and Usher owo

@chifunii: haha well there was a helluva lot of people in the front (I couldn't see anything beyond the 2 people right next to me)...and plus you probably didn't know what I looked like so yeah...

hahaha I did that too I was jumping around screaming so much I was tired after their 2nd song xD
personally my favorite song by them is calling but all of their songs are superduperawesome :D
as soon as HEY! goes on pre-order forget everything I'm going on cdjapan and buying it haha.

I was at stage zero one morning and the host (rob miles I think) was saying how he got to talk to flow and last year when they came before they left they had begged to come back this year, so I hope they come back again ;)

I completely enjoyed the concerts! I'm amazed by how much FLOW cares for their fans and were so kind no matter where they ran into their fans. They were so outgoing and happy, such great guys!

The concert was fun! I was standing right behind those three guys going crazy. -_-'
That rover, Chris (I think his name was?) Was so much fun! I couldn't stop laughing when I saw him waving his arms like crazy, right along with everyone else!

@cottencandymuffin You were right next to Chifunii and me?? How did we miss you?? Next year I guess, we can get everyone together. Funny how we joined forces for LM.C and have continued on since them.

I can't wait for next year. Thanks MusicFest!! This was just amazing!!
I think the only problem I really had was the overlap. It was crazy!! We had our friends hold our place in line so we could go to Yuya's autograph session on saturday, but when we returned the Rovers claimed we weren't there, and that created some problems. Then on Sunday, everything overlapped! You couldn't go to yuya's things and FLOW's. You had to miss some for the other. Going to Yuya's autograph I missed Yuya's Q/A and FLOW's Q/A. Going to FLOW's autograph I missed Yuya's raffle and pictures with him. It was one big overlapping crazyness.Going by yourself for some of these, especially when you come from another state, you can't really go to everything and it's harder to find people to group up with and help eachother out.

Thanks to Chifunii and the others! I'm so glad we were able to meet up and have fun this weekend

Glad to see that you got home safely! :) Hopefully you've caught up on your sleep--I'm still getting projects done. Hopefully we'll be able to meet up again sometime! :D You'll always be welcome in the Bay Area. xD

--
As I've said, the more the merrier! Whoopwhoop. I might be the only one sharing this sentiment with my friend Amy, but "waiting in line is fun". :)) A little tiring, but fun.

Oh the overlaps. xD Gave us all headaches on Sunday--my friend and I actually had to strategize on Sunday for which ones we'd go to and which lines we'd wait in. We actually made it to everything, save for the Yuya photo which we got there just a bit too late for (made it to the raffle)--It's okay, though, I have my FLOW photo. 8]

@Cottoncandymuffin I saw you in line for the photo though! At least, I think I did. Dunno why I could've missed you in the live line... You look a whole lot like a girl from my volunteering group in Fremont, so maybe that's why I kind of remember seeing you. I do remember thinking "She's young!" lol OTL when I 'saw' you in line.

Really, me and my girlfriend flipped out when we heard it xD I didn't expect to hear them play that song, especially since it's so old, it reminded me of watching Rurouni Kenshin back in the day. I had such a blast getting to experience this concert! Both FLOW and Yuya gave amazing performances :)

The concert was so FANTASTIC! It was really nostalgic hearing some of the songs, especially 1/3 Junjou na Kanjou. Really, me and my girlfriend flipped out when we heard it xD I didn't expect to hear them play that song, especially since it's so old, it reminded me of watching Rurouni Kenshin back in the day. I had such a blast getting to experience this concert! Both FLOW and Yuya gave amazing performances :)

The reason they played it is because they just recently released their own cover version of it:

@amo-chan: I think I saw you and chifunii in line a few times for autograph sessions and the FLOW pictures. I was going to say hi but I thought it might be kinda creepy if I just ran up to you hahaha xP but next year we're definitely getting together

yeah I literally planned out my schedule for the day the night before to make sure I hit everything. I skipped the Q&A's too for the autographs...but maybe they had other plans so they had to cram it in (I think that's what happened last year with LM.C/FLOW?)

FLOW was great!
I missed them last year since I was not able to attend FanimeCon but I'm glad I was able to see them this year.

I was sitting second floor and was a bit concerned about the chick in front row to the left who was head banging away. I hope the people around her were OK? I've experienced head banging here at lives in Japan and um, it's scary... I've nearly been hit before so ya.

It's perfectly fine to express your support however you feel, but just please make sure it doesn't bother those around you.

Hi! I actually only heard of FLOW because of Code Geass but didn't take the time to listen to much of them after that but after this show I am very impressed! I was wondering if anyone know their setlist for the concert? I really like some of the songs they performed and would like to hear more of it^Q^

Post by: cottoncandymuffin on June 03, 2011, 02:57:27 AM
I can't say I know the exact set list, but here's some of the songs they played, to name a few:

Union, Calling, GO!!!, Colors, Re:member, 1/3 no junjou na kanjou, Word of the Voice

there's plenty more out there, their website has their entire discography (www.flow.mu) ;)

I am Chris.
I am not a rover ._.
I'm Musicfest 2nd.
I was mainly in charge of Flow for a majority of the con last year and this year.

I also MC'd the Q&A for Flow if you came to that and didn't put two and two together!

You were awesome! I think you really made people go crazy too with your energy. Thanks for taking care of FLOW for the last two years!

@Cottoncandymuffin You should have said hi! So many people kept running up to me and saying hi. I wore my LM.C punky heart hat. I even got jump for it by some girl...until I told her it wasn't the same hat. Crazy girls...
Well, hopefully next year. I'll try to fly back. Guess it depends on the bands, but I really want to see everyone one last time.

You are probably impossible to point out without your hat on, though it's pretty crazy they still remember (and want) your hat~ I'm sitting in class rn--last day of school! Maybe next year I'll be able to be off from school so I can enjoy all four days of fanime... Hope to see you back though--unless I go over to Florida~~

Aside from their songs used as OP/ED for various anime series, a great majority of their songs from last Saturday are from their latest non-compilation album, MICROCOSM. Singing along to LUNA is really fun xD They really mixed up the setlist from last year (MICROCOSM was released after Fanime 2010).

And, if you find any more live reports do tell us! They're nice to read, considering it's difficult to remember everything. Good luck on your finals~

Who was it originally sung by?

If anyone can be on the lookout for anyone selling the FLOW "On The Line" t-shirt in a S size, I will greatly appreciate it. Thanks!
I'm going to be looking out for it on eBay and garagesalejapan. If you know any other websites or LJ communities where i could possibly find people selling, please let me know. Thanks!

I'm a little late in commenting about Fanime this year, but wanted to say that FLOW's concert this year was amazing. I didn't honestly think they could top last year but they did.
I also wanted to sent a shout out and super thank you to Christopher Lee! Being able to get front row again, it was a real pleasure to see the amazing energy that Christopher had in trying to hype the crowd the WHOLE concert. The following day he MC'd the Q&A and kept a fun banter up with the crowd, even amusingly bringing up my almost whacking someone in the head with my lanyard during 'nuts bang' before FLOW arrived. We also ran into him after the concert and he was relaxed with the band and had a great disposition about him when interacting with them and all the fans. So I just wanted to say a thank you to Chris (not that he will probably even see this) for putting so much effort to make the experience great for us the fans, and when escorting/interviewing FLOW.  ;D ;D

Thanks a lot, awesome interview!!

A question that a lot of fans are wondering (maybe you can ask them next time) is if any of them are married. Everyone wonders about that and would be really interesting to know. Thanks again, great job!  :)

Thanks for the interview! I remember reading your interview with FLOW last year!

@felexis: I doubt it, but yeah we should ask them next time. Funny that no one asked that during Q&A either year :O

I think the group pic was up on their website after Fanime. It's been awhile but let me see if I can dig it up ;)

can't seem to find it...I know for sure though Yuya put up a group pic.

At any rate, I found another FLOW interview: http://www.ani.me/zine/home/article/1070/

I SAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAVED it to my laptop last year...
But it's not a group picture with them, it's just a picture that they took with their camera and put on their blog.
My dial-up is slow in Taiwan, but if you haven't already seen it/remember what I'm talking about I can upload it. xD
