capncosmo: Masumi being exploded (Masumi Explodes)
...but I am serious about my SP.

Soon, tonight's SP special will appear on the internet. DO NOT WATCH IT IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE FIRST MOVIE AND DON'T WANT TO BE SPOILED. It completely spoils the whole thing, and we're only 30 minutes in.

Hi, V6 friends! I bet a lot of you wonder why you keep me on your friends lists. Maybe this could be part of the reason? I'm working on all of "READY?," but first I have to handle the singles, so. (Except "way of life"? I don't have that single, so.)

I also watched Mulan in Mandarin in this weekend, and dudes! I could understand very short sentences!! I guess I am not completely hopeless in Chinese after all :Db

I also WILL at SOME POINT type up all the V6 lyrics translations I've been doing in preparation for READY?. So, you know, hold me to that.

In other news, have been thinking about moving to DW... we'll see.

EDIT: [livejournal.com profile] megthelegend wrote me a really awesome and hilarious Carranger fic! Go read it!!

I've been meaning to say his for a while, but, does anyone have any thoughts on Toei's apparent obsession with the name "Kaoru"? Off the top of my head I can think of three Kaorus (Kuuga, Agito, Shinken) and one kind-of Kaoru (Magi) which is kind of... a strange pattern, don't you think?

In one of my classes I have two Kaorus, one girl and one boy, and the boy wants to be a detective.

And, I'm bored, so have a meme. Which I'm sure you'll all give me a fandom for.

Name a fandom, and I'll give you the scoop on at least three of my unpopular opinions related to that fandom.

So, this weekend was exciting! We went Hina-meguri-ing, because as it turns out, the town I live in has a whole thing where basically all the stores put out hina ningyo and you can just wander in and see them. There were some SUPER old ones! And also ones shaped like giant strawberries :Db It was also good for finding out what was actually around there, because I didn't really know.

Then, we went to karaoke, which was awesome because A) we are awesome, but B) I had made Lisa watch the Kyuushuu summer special from GeI (I MISS YOU, GeI!!!) because I had just recently seen it myself and it's seriously one of the funniest episodes I've ever seen. Maybe even beating out Nagano's license. I have not seen V6's debut concert (although I have heard tell), but at one point in the episode they reference it. Apparently, Sakamoto just randomly yelled "MAAAAAAAAADE IIIIIIIIIIN JAPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN" at some point in "Made in Japan," so Ken, Nagano and Inocchi start yelling "MAAAAAAAAADE IIIIIIIIIIN JAPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN" to mock him when they play the song on this trip.

So Lisa and I sang "Made in Japan", and, having not seen CONCERT FOR THE PEOPLE, yelled "MAAAAAAAAADE IIIIIIIIIIN JAPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN" at every opportunity since we didn't know where in the song he did it.

IT WAS REALLY GREAT.

MAAAAAAAAADE IIIIIIIIIIN JAPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN

I think it may have to become one of our karaoke standbys. Even as we were looking over our shoulders to make sure the people weren't going to come and tell us we were bothering the other customers.



Speaking of, thank you to everyone who answered my poll about what to do for the KHK Kouhaku (EXCEPT ALL OF YOU WHO WANT ME TO DIE. I SEE HOW IT IS.) I was really leaning towards "Step and Go," especially after I found out that there were some teachers willing to back me up in dancing, but in actually going to karaoke and singing this weekend... I think I finally figured out how to make the best performance, which is by performing (don't laugh at me, I'm slow :/), and I think I can *perform* best to "Dakishimete TONIGHT," so that's what I'm going to go with. Now I just have to choreograph a dance I can actually do. And, I suppose, try and become flexible so I can kick up to my chin D:

I also went to Nagano this weekend, which means ONE PREFECTURE LEFT. I'm excited. Especially because I will get to LOOK UP AND SEE MOUNT FUJI.

And ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Oh, yeah, I bought the Shinken photobook/Double Character book because I am WEAK. (More because I want Hero/Heroine Vision and I can never find it so I buy other things to pull me out of my depression). Does anyone know if they've been translated? Because man, there are some short interviews at the back that would take me ten second and would bring the lolz. (Although, Shogo's handwriting is kind of illegible maybe I should reconsider that)


Yay Asexual fandom!


And Hello, New V6 friends! I would make cheesy V6 jokes since I just went to Nagano, but I kind of used them all while I was up there (^^;)

ATTN: It's getting to be the time of year where I have to buy New Year's Cards, which means I need to know how many I need, which means I need the addresses of those of you who have moved this year. To be safe, I'd rather have all your addresses, but I know I have certain people's written down, um.... somewhere. とにかく! Speak up if you want a card and you don't think I have your address.

So, for all of you who listened to my last voice post, you know I was whining about a DS, eventually deciding against buying one.

AHAHAHAHAHA. )

I have also been SO BORED as to actually watch Japanese TV.

SmaxSma, Buzzer Beat, AnS )

And in closing, I've heard the hidden track of the new Arashi album (waiting on 5x10 'til I actually get the thing), but I have to say, unfortunately nothing will ever beat the sheer awesome of the one on V6's VOYAGER album. ...Unless Arashi did one in that style.

Off to getting kicked out of the net cafe and in search of a CD player!


P.S. Pokemon playing friends, what Pokemon are you playing?
capncosmo: Clueless (Default)
And I remember how to type. THE CROWD GOES WILD.

Happy August Birthdays! And also July... Sorry, July.

In Kyoto. Or, as my mother says, Kyoooooto. Got kind of rained out, but the ting is, my parents don't actually care. I don't know if we're going to get to Nara, though... And Nara wa shika de yuumei desu!

(Actually, speaking of flashbacks to Japanese 300, my mother LOVES Asahi Super Dry.)

No, but, uh, still love Kyoto. They said "Ookini" to us at the restaurants today and I was ridiculously happy.

I am also seriously digging the new Kamisen mini album. It's (only?) 6 songs, but each one is COMPLETELY different and it's really awesome. I wasn't going to buy it because, you know, Kamisen, but I'm glad I did.

Oh, right. Meme.

Ask me my fannish Top Five [whatevers]. Any top fives. Doesn't matter what, really! And I will answer them all in a new post.

I said I would try to post more, and look! Here I am!

capncosmo: Clueless (Default)
So! I should put a post together since I imagine I am going to be running around like a chicken with my head cut off tomorrow and Friday.

OKAY. ANYBODY WHO WANTS A POSTCARD FROM JAPAN, SPEAK NOW. And by "speak" I mean "send me a PM," but. Because it's not like I won't be able to send you one later, but. I should do it before I forget. Plus, while I'm sure they have touristy postcards in Tokyo, I am not sure about Tochigi? Well, probably if I go to Nikkou. (I AM GOING TO NIKKOU ONE DAY, BTW. THERE AND THE DENEN.)


I will maybe write about dramas/Toku one day, but not today, as I am SO BUSY. I can say: I love Shiken 4 ♥, I love Ryousuke's dad (Voice), I'm sad about Mameshiba, I LOVE Love Shuffle because I thought it was going to degenerate AND IT DIDN'T, and everyone should watch Dousoukai because it is nominally about a horrible, messed up love triangle (detailed explanation), but is actually about rain scenes, shower scenes, and a gay man named "Arashi".


In other news, I was following the other comments on a post that was talking about something else entirely, somehow the conversation got turned into Go-Onger. The person was saying they didn't think Go-Onger was really interesting other than for mocking, and they pointed out how unfortunate Sousuke's jacket might be. Specifically:



And I thought, "That sounds like a challenge." So. Who's up for a King Uke* Sousuke commentfic challenge? You know you want to.

*I don't mean this in the traditional sense

To Wit: 1) Participants shall write a comment fic that 2) involves Sousuke and some other character from wherever and 3) him getting owned by them due to how he apparently thinks the entire world are his girlfriends and they realize how stupid he is. Or, you know, whatever. I'm flexible.

I thought I would start by writing whomever is least popular to pair with Sousuke (as that seems to be my niche), until I realized, I did not know who was least popular to pair with Sousuke. So. You should give me some guidance there too :P

Haha, never posted yesterday, huh? I WAS TOO BUSY WRITING AN EPIC.

So tomorrow is Lent! I am sure we are all very excited. I think I am going to do a ++ version of what I did last year. Although, I'm not sure how it's going to go with my move.... But I am going to try my best! So, what exactly am I doing? I've kind of come to conclusion that denying myself something isn't really the character building exercise its meant to be (aside from the actual fasts themselves, but even they're not *that* bad). I dunno if that's just me, but instead, for the past few years I have tried to take the direct approach to self improvement by forcing myself to do self improving things (denying myself laziness?). To wit: 1) exercise at least 6 days a week, ideally 7 (to allow for moving); 2) floss at least once a day; 3) prayer before meals; 4) At least 3 pgs of articles or 45 min of TV translation a week

...Anyone have anything they want translated?


And, um, I didn't think I had to say this, but: I am open to any and all discussion, both from people who agree with me and people who don't. But if you're going to try and invalidate someone's feelings/hurts/experiences/anything else personal like that, keep it to yourself. I can't *stand* people telling other people how they are allowed to feel about something.

So, you know how sometimes it feels like your life is plodding along like you decided to get on 495 at 5PM and then suddenly EVERYTHING KICKS INTO HIGH GEAR AND YOU ARE FLYING 80MPH DOWN THE HIGHWAY.

That's what my life is like.

I hope there are no cops on my tail... )

Switching gears, Asami reads my LJ? HI ASAMI (^^)/~ I was kind of surprised because on a scale from 1 to impossible to understand, I think this journal is a 99, between the gibberish and the netspeak and the fangirling and the general difficulty of understanding the words that are coming out of my mouth. But she says she can read it *shrugs*

Went shopping this weekend, seriously. Circuit City, the H, and Kohls. At Kohls I bought a necklace to go with my sweater. It's one of those long circle-y ones, and it makes a JINGLY NOISE. Kate would have told me "no," but she wasn't there :P At the H we predictably bought food. This week's menu: Kani Chahan and Miso soup. The chahan is a package mix, but the soup is from scratch, and it will feature this week's special ingredient: King Oyster Mushrooms. We also bought YanYan b/c [livejournal.com profile] verusmayaii was talking about it, and because my brother had never eaten it before. And then at Circuit City I got my webcam and many DVDs. Predictably, my favorite thing to do with the webcam is turn on face follow and then move around suddenly. >P

Somebody linked a clip of this British comedy show in one of the Arashi comms, and while the Arashi link is a 10 second discussion of KwP, they did at least get one hilarious thing right:

Host: They're called "V6" because there's six of them, and the "V" stands for "violence". Or possibly "vegetables". Or "very" as in "very good".

Hahahahaha no one knows what that "V" stands for. NO ONE.

And while I am talking about V6, this video made me want to die laughing oh my gosh.

And then, Hurri 23-28 )

In conclusion: I burned my mouth on my burrito D:
capncosmo: Clueless (Default)
ALDKNFLDJFNKDJFNK. So here I was, at the VSA page in Wikipedia trying to figure out what number episode was this week's, and I see a link to Itou-san's page. Now, as much as I adore Itou-san, I don't actually know much about him, so I went to go look at his page. AND THEN I SAW THIS. (Or, in English, this.) I know it's supposed to be a really bad movie, but Itou-san is in it. Itou-san is in a movie. I just. Wow. Wow. Itou-san.
