Loves to chat. Loves those who love them. Loves to takes things at the center. Inner and physical beauty. Lies but doesn’t pretend. Gets angry often. Treats friends importantly. Brave and fearless. Always making friends. Easily hurt but recovers easily. Daydreamer. Opinionated. Does not care to control emotions. Unpredictable. Extremely smart, but definitely the hottest AND sexiest of them all. repost this in 5 mins or you will not meet the love of your life for 10 years.

lol... some bits are accurate and others made me laugh. ^^

First post of 2012, GO!  Happy New Year everyone!  This meme is actually pretty fun. :)  Took some time though, finding the pictures I needed.

Your main fandom of the year?

There's never any competition.

Continued under the cut... )

Copy the first sentence from your first entry for each month of the year.

January - Personal History - Miyata Toshiya (Kisumai Photobook Translation)  Hey everyone.
February - Fair warning  I'll be going through the people I've friended back since coming to livejournal and tidying up a bit.
March - I hate you  Went to the gym for an 'orientation' thing... and according to my assessment, I am about 17% above my 'ideal body weight', but my body fat percentage or whatever I'm supposed to call this thing, is two times what it's supposed to be at... which according to this graph thing, makes me 'obese'.
April - So behind~ ヽ( ̄д ̄;)ノ  I'm so behind on all fandom related things.
May - UGH. HOW COULD YOU?!  元関ジャニJr.ネットカフェで窃盗容疑
June - Another to-do list post  SHOULD do:
July - [pre-order] Kis-My-Ft2 Debut Tour Everybody Go concert goods  I'm taking orders for Kis-My-Ft2's debut tour concert goods.
August - Nikkan Saturday Johnny's Special - Kis-My-Ft2  (image only post)
September - [one-shot] Confessions (aka Matori's 21st Birthday fic)  Matori’s decided that because it’s his birthday, he should get whatever he wants.
October - [question]キスマイRadio  I have a LQ recording of last night's KisumaiRadio.
November - You can ignore this post  Shounentachi Report, butai portion.
December - [pre-order] KANSAI Johnny's Jr. X'mas 2011 goods  Taking orders for Kanju's current concert series at the Shochikuza.

That's actually a pretty good summary of my 2011.  RL had a lot of low points, but there was lots of Kisumai and Kanju (sometimes not so good on the Kanju part... DAICHI).

So... It was pointed out to me that I got mentioned in a meme.  Which is weird because I NEVER get mentioned in memes.  I'm actually a little embarrassed.  Happy, don't get me wrong, but... confused?  Um... I don't know what to say other than that.  And thank you. *is still a little embarrassed*

Ok.  Started to clean and sorta gave up at around 4.  I did scrub the shower, clean the AC/Heater filters, and collect the trash (which does nothing really, since garbage day isn't until Wednesday).  I also added over 3000 words to my BBV concert report.

There's a 15 second promotional thing being played for Kisumai's photobook, but it's only playing on three large screens (the ones on sides of buildings and in train stations) nationwide.  One is Shibuya's Q'sEYE, one is the Umeda Hankyu BIGMAN screen here in Osaka... and I think the last one is in Nagoya?  Anyway.  They'll be up until the 26th, but I went to go check it out yesterday since it started playing yesterday.  Took two videos of it with my camera and since the Umeda one plays every 30 minutes, that means I was standing there for over half an hour.  haha...  ^^;  I don't really know how loud the Q'sEYE is, but the BIGMAN is pretty loud and even if it's only for 15 seconds, Fire Beat is being played for a ton of people to hear.  ♪(´ε` )  I really hope they see it in Shibuya.

I've uploaded the one that I think turned out better. 

And on an unrelated topic, since I don't think I'll be posting anything else tonight, I just wanted to reveal the only song that people didn't guess on my Lyrics Meme.

27.  Ato sanshuu de renshuu mo owaru, Shiroi ha ga kobore dashiteru bokura
Tegomass's Owaranaide

Not really surprised no one on my f-list got it since I don't really think anyone on here is following me for NEWS related things (although I AM looking at you [livejournal.com profile] laruku05 !).  When it comes to Tegomass, their B-sides will always be better than the A-sides.

Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line (unless the first line reveals the song title) from the first 30 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.  House rule: Skip instrumentals and most Japanese/Korean songs. I'll be keeping my list to Japanese songs only and skip the Korean ones since I doubt anyone on my f-list would be able to figure those out anyway.
Step 3: Strike through the songs when someone guesses both artist and song title correctly.
Step 4: Looking them up on Google is cheating!

Try and play... there are a few that are totally obvious. )

And the score so far...

DAY SEVEN: a j-pop song that makes you cry

Ohkura's solo song Mamoritai.  Hadn't thought about it until I was at Yoko's solo concert.  He started singing it and I just started crying.  The lyrics  really get to me and I can't really listen to them like I used to.  *sigh*

From Costco.  And before anyone can give me crap about how they're not real hot dogs and pizza, SHH~~~~!!!!!!  Let me have this because I haven't had anything close in forever.  Went to Costco in Japan for the first time today 'cause it's really hard to go without a car.  Bough useful things like hangers, Febreze, shampoo, conditioner, and batteries.  I also bought things that I totally don't need, but REALLY wanted, like garlic & herb cheese, spinach & cheese ravioli, and the assorted Costco muffins.  And then of course I bought things that I'm justifying as being useful for school... like the pack of 648 sheets of 9"x12" assorted color construction paper.  THIS IS WHY I SHOULDN'T BE ALLOWED TO GO TO COSTCO.

I was hoping to make this a useful entry with audio clips from Takki's concert, but I got distracted (is anyone else watching Hammer Session?) and didn't finish.  Ah well.

DAY SIX: your favorite j-pop song from your favorite group

I like majority of Kisumai's songs, but I'd probably be lying if I said that Goodbye, Thank you wasn't my favorite.  To begin with, I love the lyrics.


Then on top of that, when I listen to it, images of them during their tours come up.  During their first tour, it was the last song in their set list, and while they sang, on the VTR screens, they showed backstage footage of them working hard, practicing, and other things that they'd done to prepare for those concerts, but at the end of that VTR, there was this image of their white skates lined up and it always struck me as holding a lot of meaning because that's how Hikaru Genji ended their last performance as a group.  I'm not explaining it very well, but I have very strong feelings attached to this song.  I CRIED when they sang it at the last concert of their 2nd tour.

I haven't really been posting as much as I should and have, yet again, let things build up on me.

[concert notes] Tackey Summer Concert 2010 (100731, 大阪城ホール)
Ok.  Here are my notes on Saturday's Takki concert.  Won't call it a report since I won't be able to comment on all of the songs... It's a little difficult for me, seeing as how I don't know the titles to most of Takki's songs.  Warning now... I do sometimes write some of my notes in Japanese.  I try to write the translations next to them, but sometimes I forget.  Also, I think this turned out to be about Kanju at Takki's concert.  Sorry Snowman fans... I mention them (like Sanada's FAIL at getting audience participation), but it's mostly about Kanju.

Like I said before, I wasn't planning on going to see Takki here in Osaka.  I'm going to see the concert in Yokohama and honestly saw no point in going until I had Rachel next to me to tell me who's who in MSM.  She's been trying to get me to at least be able to tell the Snowmen apart for about 8 months now.  But then at the Kanju concerts, Akito mentioned that the "Chibiko Kanju" would be backing at Takki's concerts this weekend and that sorta made me think that maybe going would be worth it.  Still wasn't going to go though cause it was too late to get a ticket off of ticket.co.jp... but then Rachel said someone online had extra tickets.  Anyway.  Ended up going to the concert with [livejournal.com profile] jin_rabu  and had an awesome time.

Our seats were 16th row on the left side of the stage.  After being in Osaka-Jo Hall for Kanju's cons it was a little surprising to see a proper stage.  Have I ever mentioned how low budget Kanju are?  'Cause they really, REALLY are.  All those special effects they got to use at their concerts, I understand now were because Takki was gonna be using them.

I'm really not sure where to start, so for now, I'm just gonna type, probably out of order... and also c/p from my online conversations with [livejournal.com profile] snowqueenofhoth  and [livejournal.com profile] murasaki_anna  'cause I'm lazy.  It did turn out to be a lot longer than I thought it would.

It got long... )

I've been really bad about keeping up with this.  I'm just going to follow Raras's example and just keep going in order and not make a catch-up post.  Wow.  Did I really only get up to Day 4 before stopping?  Fail.

Day 5: Your favorite j-drama actress
My favorite without a doubt is Horikita Maki.  Adored her and her short boy hair in Hanazakari no Kimitachi e and totally loved her kick-ass attitude in Tokujo Kabachi.  2nd place is Kitagawa Keiko.

Other than that, CONGRATULATIONS TO KIRA on getting her internship in Japan for this fall!  *throws confetti*  I'm really happy that you'll be coming back soon!  ^-^
talisa_ahn: (ABC-Z - BRING IT!)
Closing ceremony was this morning and I am now officially on summer vacation.  I still have to go into work everyday unless I take paid leave, but at this point, going in means I get to just hang out with the kids, so YAY!

This past weekend, 2 of my friends got married in Kobe and that was absolutely wonderful.  They both looked so happy and the venue... everything was just perfect.  Well, besides the fact that it was in KOBE and I therefore got home at 1am because it's 2 hours of travel time.  But as soon as I figure out what's wrong with my card reader, I'll post some photos.  Her dress was AWESOME (either that or I've been in Japan way too long).

I've been going to support the basketball club at my school recently.  Both Girls' and Boys' teams are really good.  The Girls' are ranked 1st in our district and the Boys' are ranked 3rd.  They all played in an Osaka prefectural tournament this weekend, Girls on Sunday and Boys on Monday (it was a national holiday).  I was originally only gonna go see the girls (cause they ASK me to come :D), but then the boys always see me at the Girls' games and finally came up to me and were like, "おい!なんでいつも女子の試合見に来てるのに、僕たちの試合来ないの?" (basically asking how come I never go see them) to which I hurriedly replied, "That's not true... I'm coming tomorrow!  9:20 right?"  No choice.  I went, even though I was dying tired when I got up.  haha...  Both teams won no problem.  I is very proud. :D

Other than that, this summer break is looking pretty amazing at the moment.  I didn't hit for certain things, sold my tickets to some things, decided not to buy tickets for some things,  and chose not to apply for others, so the schedule isn't as crazy as I originally planned, but I must say that I'm still pretty happy with it. 

The Summer Schedule as of Now )

Day 4: Your favorite j-drama actor

Photobucket currently hates me.  Will be back with a photo of Oguri Shun later.

I don't really have a favorite so I decided to go with the following criteria... Whose drama would I choose to watch based on the fact that he's in it?  I ended up with Oguri Shun.  Do I think he's the best actor?  Not necessarily ('cause I'd have said Daito Shunsuke based on the wide variety of characters I've seen him portray), but I enjoy Oguri Shun's stuff a lot.  I also heavily considered Mizushima Hiro, Kaname Jun, Sato Takeru, Miura Haruma, and Narimiya Hiroki.

Day 3:  Your favorite J-drama


There's just so much about this drama that I love... the music, the characters, the relationships...  Yes, yes, I know there are people who can't stand her (ie Rachel), but I've watched this drama a million times.

The other two I was debating through were Rookies and Hana Yori Dango (2005).

2) You then list (and upload, if you feel like it) 5 (or 6 or 7) songs that start with that letter (feel free to explain why you chose the songs).
3) Then, as I'm doing here, you'll post the list to your journal with the instructions.
