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….

A catch up..

Haha am i psychic?
The weekly oricon ranking for Aragaki Yui’s “piece” issssssssss…number seven!
I’ve been so busy that i haven’t had chance to check any of the daily rankings, so i had no idea how well or bad it’s done. But for some strange reason it popped up in my dream, where it got a number seven of all numbers! Haha & when i was awake i was trying to convince myself that she would have obviously done better than that…but apparently not 😦
But then again does she actually do promotion? I never see her on all the other music programs the artists appear on? Who knows..

In other news, Morning Musume reached number 3 in the weekly charts last week for “Naichau Kamo!” I was hoping for a number 2, and they were sooo close behind (around 2000 copies between them and Acid Black Cherry who were at number 2) But at least this shows us that Morning Musume are still going pretty strong and they aren’t going anywhere! (hopefully) 🙂
They have another single scheduled already too. YAY!

Arihara Kanna from C-ute has been announced on the Hello!Project site to have hallux valgus and is on hiatus to spend time with her johnnys boyfriend recover. This means she won’t be taking part in their upcoming tour in April or their new single, “bye bye”
Ah i have a bad feeling about this? It’s really sad..get better soon! (Don’t worry i won’t make any bye bye puns…)

About the Tohoshinki VS KAT-TUN oricon ‘battle’………ahhhh all i can say is if you really love Tohoshinki, then buy their single ‘survivor’ as it’s possibly the only way that they will win! Even if it’s the only single you ever buy from them..i would love for them to beat KAT-TUN it would be amazing…
I have been thinking…are the fans of KAT-TUN also fans of Tohoshinki? Like is this a bit of a behind the scenes handshake, so that fans of KAT-TUN will think, “ah Tohoshinki? I may as well buy this too…” at the same time they’re buying KAT-TUN’s single, so that Tohoshinki’s sales will rise to the amounts johnny’s do?
But then again….i can imagine KAT-TUN/Johnny fans being proper loyal and not wanting to betray their beloved. Once again, who knows?
I still think that the Japanese music industry is really corrupted, but that’s another debate for another time…

BOA on Domoto Kyoudai

February 16, 2009

After watching an old appearance of BOA on “Domoto Kyoudai” i reaaaaaaally can’t wait until Tohoshinki’s appearance airs. They are so funny anyway and of course Tohoshinki are really funny too, so the result is going to be great 😀 I can’t find out when the appearance will air? Does anyone know? o.O

On this appearance, BOA is so cute! This is the first time i’ve seen her in an interview and i didn’t realise until now how shyly cute she is!

Part one:

Part two:

Haha her description of her perfect man sounded a lot like Jaejoong!

Part three:

There’s been so many bands/artists on Domoto Kyoudai. For example even Ishikawa Rika has appeared on there! I remember them reenacting the wota dance hahaha.

But yeah….i wonder why Johnny is suddenly embracing Tohoshinki with open arms? What does he have up his sleeve? Is he going to try buy them off Avex? Or maybe get close enough to them that he can invite them round to his place and………hahaha..well it’s his fault for having so many bad rumours about him!

Whenever i hear the start to DBSK’s song “O Jun Ban Hap” i always end up laughing at myself. This is because every single time i hear the start of it where Yoochun says “Yo Yunho let’s try some noisy beat..” seriously, every single time i hear it, instead of what Yoochun is really saying, i get Masuda Takahisa’s voice coming into my head, replacing the lyrics with: “Yo Yunho, what’s fo’ dinner tonight?”
Yes i am being serious.
I believe it is because they use the exact same tone of voice….and well…..haha i don’t think i can really justify this!

Just listen to it!
In case you’re wondering, this is Masuda Takahisa’s (NEWS) performance of “Pumpkin” during the “Never Ending Wonderful Story” concert.

Hear it? “Yo what’s fo’ dinner tonight?” Ah Massu…….
Anyway, here’s DBSK’s “O”

Please say i’m not crazy!!!! If you’re struggling to imagine it..here i even made a (quick) recording of what i hear:

Ahhhhhhh forget Yoosu, it’s all about Massyoo! ^______^

Heyyy they even look a bit alike too? 😉

Haha, i also sometimes listen to songs over and over and then it suddenly clicks that they are singing english words! This happened to me yesterday, when i was listening to the song by NEWS “Mafuyu no Nagareboshi” where the last paragraph in the song is sung in English. I wasn’t really paying much attention to this song as i was busy doing something else, but for some reason i suddenly thought, “hey that’s English!”
Listening back to it makes me feel really stupid as it’s so obvious, but sometimes i just can’t be bothered to try translate what they’re saying in my head, so it all just merges together! I think it’s the “I can be your heart, I wish to see…..” part. Here’s a clip of a shortened version of the song being performed at their Pacific tour.

Ah I really do wonder why these pesky Asians always insist on adding random English to their songs. Is it really that cool to do so? Will more people buy your records if you add the odd English phrase?
To be honest, i really don’t think so. But who knows? I’m not Japanese! I asked my Japanese penpal (yes i have one..don’t laugh!) and he didn’t seem to think there was any relevance in it. Obviously that doesn’t speak for all Japanese people. But isn’t it random? Doesn’t it annoy them that they’ve got some random lyrics in their head which they don’t understand? (Then again..that always happens to me….)

Ah the English language is such a strange thing. I’m always thinking, ehhh why do we do that? For example, we miss out so many words in our sentences, just because we can and they still make sense!
To be honest, i’m so glad that that doesn’t happen in German (as far as i’m aware) as it’d just leave me so much more confused!
I often find myself wondering whether i should be happy that English is my first language and i don’t have to learn it which gives me the option of learning any language i want to, instead of just – ‘okay learn English, then learn the language you want to’
Is that ignorant to think like that? My German friend who’s over here for three months told us she was under the impression that English people believed they didn’t need to learn any languages because everybody learns theirs.
Obviously me being a language geek is an exception to that, but it’s awfully true! In my German class there’s only three of us. Out of a college of hundreds, only seven people (when including the first year) want to carry on learning German from school. Why is that? Are they intimidated by the amount of hard work? Is it just laziness or is it arrogance?

Okay…happy chinese new year! :-D

January 26, 2009

I’ve just made the banner which is at the top of this page. I am a bit dissapointed with it actually.
Basically when i was younger, like when i was 13/14 kind of age, i used to do that kind of thing all the time. I used to love it! I always used Paint Shop Pro 8, so when i changed over to my laptop, i couldn’t be bothered to put it on here..lol. It was also because the mouse was hard to use for doing precise work, so i just left it!
Now i finally just re-installed PSP on this laptop so that i could make the banner! Haha what dedication!
Anyway, i was surprised at how much i remembered. I had to spend ages finding brushes for it…but yeah. Anyway.
Oh yeah, a big happy birthday for Jaejoongie! Even though his birthday’s already gone…ah he’s old! Booooooooo.
Sorry, haha..i think anything past 20 is old!
I just think i never ever want to grow up. I guess it’s because in life i seem to get away with things by giving a sweet smile, and joking around the subject. I don’t expect that to work for me when i get older, so i’m panicking for when that happens!
Oh yeah, here’s the link to my Jaejoong fanfic, please read it!!! I will get round to finishing it soon…..(it’s on my to-do list…)

Hmm, today i didn’t go to college…me and my friends were supposed to go to the Chinese to celebrate the new year..but..erm…we didn’t, as they were booked so we were going to have Indian..but i don’t know where that idea went lol.
I really want to watch romance of the heart. It’s my favourite Korean film & i have such big cravings to watch it! Hmmm..i may go do that now!!
& also, here’s what i hope to write about in the next few days:
a) Morning Musume ~ my current view on them.
b) My favourite dramas ~ because i can now innit?
c) My newfound love for Big Bang ~
d) Hopefully will have finished translating that MM clip..

Ah…you may have already caught on that i am a bit obsessed with writing lists..ah..OCD!

I think i’ll just leave you with a lovely picture of Jaejoong on his birthday. I love his smile here, it’s so genuine! ❤
