I hate revision!

June 4, 2009

        WPZL-30120

Due to exams i still won’t be blogging for a couple of weeks. Once they’re over though…PARTYYYYYYYYYYY!

Anyway, there are some much needed things I would like to comment on:

1) Happy birthday Yoochun! ❤

2) Congratulations Morning Musume on your number one single!!!!!!!!!!!

3) Why can’t I go to see Morning Musume in LA? It’s so unfair! Why did they have to choose to play in the only two weeks in the year I can’t go?! Haha.

4) Aragaki Yui’s new album “Hug” has been announced, finally! I’ve already pre-ordered, have you? Do so here! Ah so exciting! Her latest single, “Utsushi E” i found to be disappointing though. Was a tad boring….I liked the idea for the video though! =D

5) I’m so happy that LinLin will be in the new Mini Moni! I hope there’s something new for JunJun soon too. But those two doing something……….not together? =O

6) Lastly, why are Arashi  pretty much the biggest artist in Japan right now? They’re releasing singles like a machine gun, but they all sound the same to me? Or just…….gay. I like Arashi, just not enough to think they deserve to sell so much. Not that i’m biased towards DBSK or anything. 🙂

Anyway, take care everyone!

Buono! – My Boy (Oricon Daily Ranking)

April 29, 2009

On a lighter note from my previous post, Buono! placed 3rd on the oricon daily chart with 8573 units (is it still units or exact singles sold now?) and were less than a 100 away from 2nd place.

 I love this song 😀 it’s a bit strange in places though….but i won’t extend further, let’s just leave it as: it’s awesome!

Well done!

 

 

(And of course NEWS got number 1…..*coughwelldonecough*) ❤

Stockholm Japan Expo Cancelled..

April 29, 2009

People found this out ages ago……but still……ah i’ve lost all interest in blogging recently!

Yeah…………well…..i am highly superstitious and believe everything happens for a reason……….so the fact that I kept postponing buying my tickets for it, even though i didn’t know what was holding me back, has more meaning than i imagined?

I’d like to think so at least! Haha.

It’s such a shame. 😦

I am sad beyond belief that i can’t go to see Morning Musume in LA either…i would spend all my money and travel out there so i can sing in front of Tsunku(!!!!!!!!) but unfortunately (though i am looking forward to it) i am on holiday in Turkey at that time. Such bad luck!

I will sing in front of Tsunku one day though…i do intend to apply to as many record companies as possible when i finally move over to Japan. It is my dream to be a singer there 🙂 Yoroshiku onegaishimasu!

And anyone else who’s affected by the Buono! cancellation, my sympathy goes out to you! Also good luck if you do get to sing in front of Tsunku……….he isn’t looking for new recruits is he? (Why do i have to miss out on this chance when it’s probably the best chance i’ll have >_<)

I’m sure all those people who do still go out to Sweden will have an awesome time! Good on ya!

April Fools

April 1, 2009

 dscf2783

I have never ever performed a proper april fools on somebody……maybe one day i will remember and think of something. Yeah…by the time i realised it was the 1st of April (seriously march just zoomed by ne?) it was about 12 and as traditions go, i can’t do one after noon…so i missed my chance!

Hello!Online managed to completely fool me though. I don’t know why but i think it’s because i always have the upmost trust in that site….and i can be quite gullible at times….

Anyway, next episode of ‘Love Shuffle’ is out so i’m off to watch it =D

Oh yeah……..about the picture of the duck……..uh……yeah….. >_> he’s my friend! ^.^

Give them a blog!

March 23, 2009

This is in answer to a couple of search terms which have led people to my blog and I felt incredibly compelled to answer, because obviously i have no life:

Doesn’t takahashi ai have a blog? No, because Tsunku would have a fit. (I don’t really know the real reason……..maybe they don’t want you to realise how much they work..)

What songs are in akai ito drama? HY – 366 Nichi

Ah i love that drama…and the song… ❤ and the ending! ^_^

“Hate kat-tun?”
No, i don’t. 🙂

Ah! Their new album has been announced today on cdjapan/yesasia to be released on the 29th April! How exciting! 🙂 except on cdjapan the limited edition has sold out already. Ehhhhhhh?

Hmm..also…just as i was about to have a hissy fit that NEWS have disappeared completely, they have a single release, “Koi no ASBO”….i mean…”Koi no ABO” but i honestly say ASBO each time i read it….whoops. Anyway it looks like it actually comes with some exciting goodies!

Limited Edition: 12 page booklet
1) Koi no ABO
2) Labyrinth
3) Koi no ABO (Original Karaoke)
– A DVD of “NEWS WINTER PARTY DIAMOND in TOKYO DOME 2008.12.31”
1) Happy Birthday
2) weeeek
3) Gangan Ganbatte
4) Hadashi no Cinderella Boy
5) SUMMER TIME
6) MC

Regular:
1) Koi no ABO
2) Labyrinth
3) Open Your Eyes
4) Share – Live at Tokyo Dome

And on the subject of blogs, the only ex-Morning Musume members i’m aware of which have blogs (Nono, Aibon, Yuko, Marippe, Makoto, Yasuda Kei, Gocchin had one for a bit too…) you can find most of them translated around the net.
But hey do you see a pattern here? No current members? Why not Tsunku? Surely it would make them more popular? I would like it if they had a shared blog, where they take turns writing in it 🙂  ah that would be amaaazing..yesh. Maybe even JunJun and LinLin, reporting on their life in Japan. I know whenever DBSK goes on a TV show they seem to find it amazing that they’re Korean and are speaking Japanese…but we don’t get that for Jun&Lin. Shouldn’t they be reporting on their life as ‘transfer’ members? Shouldn’t they actually be doing something?

YouTube…Kiss The Baby Sky!

March 11, 2009

“YouTube has blocked all music videos to UK users following a dispute over royalties.”

Sucks to live in the UK eh?

Oh wait…….i live in the UK! >:-(

Maybe it’s now i should be thankful that i listen to more Korean and Japanese videos which aren’t affected by this. (Yet?)

Like this song i guess….
