This manuscript is based on a story written by hide who got his inspiration from an Egyptian myth. It is beautiful and erotic but also violent and disturbing. I recommend you too see it. It’s quite special. If you don’t find a version with subtitles, I recommend you to read the plot first – otherwise you won’t understand much (if you’re not speaking japans).

The plot

In the sphere of Athum there once lived two beautiful angels by the names of Seth and Holth. Seth was gentle, kind, and anxious one; Holth was strong, determined, and bold. They lived in peace in the sphere of Athum for eternity, since there is no time, nor age, nor decay in this world. The waters flow uphill and time is irrelevant. Athum takes all and creates everything, for eternity. The angels Seth and Holth lived there undisturbed forever. They made love by their eyes, tasting their tears, they spoke to each other by their blood. They slept in Athum’s womb not knowing of any evil, plight or fear. No worry, no pain ever harmed them… and they could have gone on like this forever, if not one day bold Holth had started to ask questions… questions about other worlds, other beings, questions about life and death.

He tried to force Athum to tell him but instead for an answer the angels Seth and Holth were banished to planet Earth, thrown into the harshness of light, noise and madness. They woke up from their eternal dream to find themselves reborn to a world full of questions, hectic and evil. Not knowing what to do, only trying to get home again, home to Athum, home to peace.

Hunted down by humans who did not understand, nor ever loved, Seth and Holth were sacrificed and murdered. Seeing their plight in the human world Athum pitied them and allowed them to return home, but home was not the same anymore. They had seen too much, heard too much, felt too much in the human world. They lost their innocence and their faith, they could ignore the questions no longer.

If you just want a peek, I recommend this fan-movie. The song has nothing to do with the video, you understand that right? But it’s a great and well done fanvid:

Japanese eye-licking sex

I sure got surprised when a friend of mine (thanks Linnea!) sent me this link to a Swedish very well-known evening newspaper which had an article about Japanese eye-licking sex and posted a link to the Japanese visual kei band “BORN”.

That’s funny!

BORN

BORN

Well, the eye-licking sex thing sounds a bit weird and I can’t say I want to try it, but it wasn’t really news to me. I’m sure all you other hide-fans who have watched Seth Et Holth knows what I’m talking about. *ha ha*

Seth Et Holth is by the way a masterpiece that I recommend everyone to see. hide rest in peace! <3

Well, according to this article, a certain BORN-video (see below) has inspired young people to lick each others eyeballs as a sexual act, which – who could have guessed ^_- – isn’t very healthy for the eyes. Apparently there’s a growing amount of cases where youths comes to school with eye-patches and students suffering from eye infections. According to teachers and authorities it’s just another trend that hopefully will go away soon (Business Insider).

I doubt this video has anything to do with the trend though. The song was released in February 2012… It’s a great song by the way!

Eyepatch

Eyepatch

A news blog called “Shanghaiist” put some attention to this trend after a teacher caught two students licking each other eyes and described it as a form of petting. When teachers did some research among the school kids, a third of them claimed that they either had licked eye or got their eye licked.

This kind of fetish is called “oculolinctus”.  According to Shangaiist, this trend might have started with BORN’s video to the song “Spiral Lie” in which the singer gets his eye licked (see 3.35). But I think oculolinctus has been a topic among visual kei fans since hide’s days, even if the kids haven’t really performed it… ^^

OK, so remember: eye-licking can cause eye infections and that’s very contagious. It’s nothing I recommend. ^_-

 

And if you’re curious: here’s also Seth Et Holth. The eye-scene is found at 02.32.

In memory of hide #30

After the violation of hide’s grave, I’ve decided to dedicate this week to him; to honor his memory in times when others don’t. This is for all of you who loves hide.

Seth et Holth is a movie released September 29th 1993, starring hide and Tusk (Zi:Kill).

Hide played the role of Seth and Tusk played the role of Holth.

According to me, this movie is a masterpiece and I’ve watched it several times. At first, I got confused and didn’t know what to think, but I noticed the days after that I kept thinking about it. I just couldn’t get it out of my head. So I watched it again and again – and it grew and became something very special to me.

Most people describe this movie as weird. It’s an art-movie, and even though I’ve watched it so many times and read about it – I still don’t understand it fully.

It’s a short movie, only 45 minutes long. It can be purchased as a VHS-tape on places like JapanDiscoveries and Ebay. I haven’t found it on DVD or in good quality streaming/donwloading on the net. I you have any tips concerning this, please tell me by replying to this post or send me a mail.

Seth et Holth – the movie – has been removed from YouTube many times, but I’ve found a link that is still working, so if you’re ready for it – please watch it in the end of this post.

hide’s writing – the plot

The plot is based on a text by hide. This might give you some understanding about the movie’s arrative:

Tusk & hide as Holth and Seth

Tusk & hide as Holth and Seth

“In the sphere of Athum there once lived two beautiful angels by the names of Seth and Holth.
Seth was the gentle one of the two, the kind one, the anxious one, the precious jewel, Holth was the strong one of them, the determined, the bold one.

They lived in peace in the sphere of Athum for eternity, since there is no time, nor age, nor decay in this world.
The waters flow uphill, time is irrelevant.
Athum taketh all and creates everything, for eternity.
The angels Seth and Holth lived there undisturbed forever.

They made love by their eyes, tasting their tears, they spoke to each other by their blood.

hide & tusk as Seth & Holth

They slept in Athum’s womb not knowing of any evil, plight or fear. No worry, no pain ever harmed them… and they could have gone on like thus forever, if not one day bold Holth had started to ask questions… questions about other worlds, other beings, questions about life and death.
He tried to force Athum to tell him but instead for an answer the angels Seth and Holth were banished to planet earth, thrown into the harshness of light, noise and madness.
They woke up from their eternal dream to find themselves reborn to a world full of questions, hectic and evil.

Not knowing what to do, only trying to get home again, home to Athum, the womb, the mother of it all, home to peace, where the waters are flowing uphill and where time has no meaning.
Despair and madness.
Rage and sadness.

Tell me, gentle Seth… tell me the meaning of it all, tell me the meaning of human life and strain…
“Somewhere in this void there must be the key to all our questions. We have been thrown deep… so deep into this place… Let time and everything like it disappear into nothingness.
A maze full of transity and no one to console us. People who don’t believe in anything anymore and go more crazy by the hour. Give us the solutions! Give us Eternity!
While time is flying by we can only utilize this world’s strongest weapon… love…
But cruelty has come to our lives, the lights from this world will die… now!”

Hunted down by them humans who did not understand, nor ever loved, Seth and Holth were sacrificed and murdered.
Seeing their plight in the human world Athum pitied them and allowed them to return home… but home was not the same anymore, they had seen too much, heard too much, felt too much in the human world.
They lost their innocence, their faith, they could not ignore the questions no longer…
Why? Tell me why?

But Athum could not answer and so Athum, the womb that creates everything and taketh everything, turned back to nothingness…

for eternity
for life
forever….”

if you are a sensitive person, I have to warn you, ‘cause even though it’s an old movie with poorly done effects, there’s scenes that are pretty uncomfortable.
But here it is, only in Youtube-quality unfortunately.

As I’ve mentioned earlier, hide studied cosmetology and fashion in his youth and eventually obtained a beautician license. Hence it’s not a surprise there’s so many beautiful pictures of him. His overflowing creativity and aesthetic talent is so inspiring in so many ways.

Here I will share some copies from some old Shoxx magazines.

Yoshiki claimed that hide never showed his bare chest. Ever. The only video I can think about is “Electric cucumber”. Many asks what might be the reason behind this.

Here comes a fan-video of Seth et Holth that I like. (In other words – you get a sneak peak of the movie already). The choice of music might seem a little bit misplaced, but I believe it’s very well done. Enjoy!

hide – the best gift ever

Yesterday, me and some friends went to Mango, a nice restaurant in Skövde, to celebrate my and Benny’s birthday (we were both born May the 12th). Not the same year though. ^^

I got really nice presents. For instance, I got my second piece of artwork! Am I a lucky girl or what? Daniel had painted this beautiful picture of hide as the angel Seth in the movie “Seth et Holth”. He know that I adore that movie (since I’ve been babbling about it like a maniac). ^^ So now I have both hide, Uruha and Ruki on the wall next to my bed. :) Can’t remember last time I got such special gifts.

The best gift ever. Daniel Ribera had made a portrait of hide for me.

Seth et Holth – can’t get you out of my mind

Can’t really shake Seth et Holth off my mind. Have been pondering about it a lot, unconsciously. It’s strange how your brain keep processing information without your permission, making decisions and taking stands in silence. Like you had nothing to say about it (the brain is a harassing bastard, isn’t it?).

It’s not that rare (to me anyway) that I first dislike something and then I fall in love. What I adore from the very beginning tends to bore me quite quickly. At Friday night, I thought: “This is weird… but interesting.” and today I think: “This is weird… and a masterpiece!” All these small details, the outstanding performance, just a small movement in the eye or around the mouth at the very right moment. The details made it all – so perfect. And the music… perfect. Seven of Nine would be proud. It didn’t even bother me that the post production technology in movie making was lousy back then. hide and Tusk made it work anyway. Now I believe in angels. They are beautiful, love with their eyes and speak through their blood…. literally speaking. ^_-

I’ve just been strolling around in the woods in the dark. The forest truly is full of life when night falls. The snakes wounds in the reed, the birds is chirruping in the trees. There was so much noise I could hardly hear my foot steps. After a while I got company by animals like pink spiders, frozen bugs and electric cucumbers… oh, wait… the last one is a vegetable, right?

Seth et Holth

Yesterday, I decided to watch “Seth et Holth”, since I hadn’t seen it before.

Seth et Holth is a short movie from 1993 by hide and Tusk. (Do not mix up this hide with “my Hide”. ^^ hide, without capital letter is the former guitarist of X-Japan while Hide – with capital letter – is my dear Japanese friend who is very much alive. OK? ^^)

This manuscript is based on a story written by hide who got his inspiration from an Egyptian myth. While watching the movie, I got both amazed and disgusted. It was beautiful and erotic but also violent and disturbing. I didn’t think that it would affect me that much, but I’ve actually been thinking about it quite a lot today. I think I should watch it again, soon.

I recommend you too see it. It’s quite special. If you don’t find a version with subtitles, I recommend you to read the plot first – otherwise you won’t understand much (if you’re not speaking japans).
