Gotta explain somethin'

I need to be completely honest.

Rock J
apan Elec-tric is a work of fiction.

I am not in a VK band. I can barely play guitar. My Japanese is beyond awful.

The content I've been writing for the last few years have been com
posites of other peoples' experiences, photo manipulation, educated guesses, and lots of hoping and praying no one would call me out on it.

Lots of it was just latching onto obscu
re-enough bands and just making stuff up as I went, but I think the way the story is progressing, it was going to be more and more difficult to keep things uncheckable.

To all the people who actually d
id go to Japan and agreed to pretend to have gone to see Laverite or met up with me, thanks so much for keeping the secret for so long!


If you
feel betrayed, I'm sorry. This was a "what if?" scenario, and also an anthropological experiment.

Thanks
so much for reading up until now.

I was completely confused by this until I realized it is April 1 in Japan. Suddenly it all makes sense . . .

Marius said...

And you even got people like me and La Carmina to help you manufacture pictures of you performing on stage in full costume with other "band members." Now THAT'S commitment to a deception.

Well played, sir.

I didn't know the time lag brings Japan the April's fool so much quicker.

inertia said...

Glad you finally confessed. I have to say that it was getting tiring pretending to have seen you in Laverite. It must feel great to have all this off your chest!

La Carmina said...

I happen to be very good at Photoshop... you should see me and Elec in real life. ;)

I think you're still not in the clear. I have mountains of evidence proving that you and Go are in fact the same blogger.

Nice April fools. It took me a while to actually realise what date it was. You had me for like 1 second.

Haha I haven't checked up on your blog in a while, so I was reading up on what I missed. I noticed that all the bolded letters spell April Fool. Clever me ;)

But before I noticed, this little joke actually got me for a second. A second, and no longer.
