Never really gone for good

No, not me: Ashin’s suspenders:

dodgy demin dangling

He’s got them sorta hidden under that long jacket/vest thing, but there they are: dangling denim suspenders. That’s three years now that he’s been sporting this look. Three very long years.

Mayday was out performing in Taiyuan, Shanxi this weekend. Holding a concert in Shanxi has to be pretty much the ultimate test of Mandopop superstardom for an act from Taiwan: when you’ve spread that far out from the standard Shanghai/Beijing/Guangzhou, you know you’ve made it. In the picture on the linked page, I think Stone looks a little like A-fu at first glance, though.

    You’re not gonna want to hear this, but I think I prefer the suspenders to that vest/cape/smock/dinner jacket thing he’s wearing. I mean, if you didn’t know better, you might think the hanging suspenders were just sloppy, or that he’s, you know, ready to rock. ‘Cause they’re clearly suspenders, just not being used. But that … outerwear … looks like a reject from the back of a garment factory.

    Ashin’s taste in fashion is tragic really.

    But WOW are they still touring? Shanxi’s pretty impressive.

    THAT is one ugly vest… makes him look about twelve inches tall [-__-]*
    or was that the intention?

    The suspenders were disturbing when they swing about, because they draw attention to his not-quite-tight *ahem* but otherwise they didn’t really bother me.

    I thought they had stopped touring for 2010? Hmm… Impressed at their stamina.

    When are they going to start preparing for a new album?
    All this touring has nothing to do with me.
    I want new songs!

    Well, it’s a little late to be replying, but what I think this concert was is that rare show that just couldn’t be scheduled in with the others during the active tour. So this was a part of the DNA tour, not a new active tour, just a remnant show.

    The album news won’t come until after New Year’s, and even then I wouldn’t expect it right away. They have not so much as been hinting about the studio anywhere I’ve read, and everything I’ve read has centered on the need for fans to be patient.
