omffggggg how did the album get leaked already, you guys!?? But -- I'M NOT COMPLAINING 8DDDsparkles

At the same time, they picked a really inopportune time for the album to get leaked Today TJ and I planned a small date for our 6 year anniversary. We did a picnic and then went to check out the horse races at the local race track. We made these cold sandwiches that were really quite good with lots of basil and garlic and olive oil and baguettes and tomatoes and just yummm melody

Our adventure which might be a long story~ )

OKAY SO TO TALK ABOUT THE ALBUM.

I LOVE ALMOST EVERY SINGLE TRACK EVEN THOUGH MATSUJUN'S VOICE IS AUTO-TUNED AND I THINK MADA UE WO IS LIKE GOING TO BE ON REPEAT FOREVERRRRR arrowuparrowuparrowup

As for the SOLOs, I love Nino's, Sho's, and Jun's, and I've only listened to Aiba's once but it's not what I was expecting sadly :( I'm going to give it some more listens before I make any judgment... BUT I will say that Ohno's solo seriously sounds like every single other solo he's done and... I am just not impressed ._.;;

BUT OTHER THAN THAT HOLY CRAP THIS IS A GREEEEEAAATTTT ALBUM sparklessparklessparkles

So many of their songs remind me of their old songs -- the ones that were like all 60's-70's inspired. And I keep imagining them in CONCERT FORMAT which is like the COOLEST thing ever and it is making me even more excited and nervous about the ballot results

In other news, I saw these posted up on AnJ and so I wanted to translate them catface I've been wanting to translate a magazine article lately but I think these j-webs are a good quick length that I can get my translation itches out into. So, without further ado here we go! leftarrow2

birthday First of all I want to thank all of you for your kind words and comments on my last entry. Some of you who are reading this can't read it if you're not on my f-list, I'm sorry.. it was quite personal though and so I felt the need to lock it. I feel much better and you guys are so sweet and each and every one of your comments made me feel really happy to have such great people around me in fandom-life.. and real life.

plane Our plane tickets to Japan have been bought, so this trip is pretty much official. They are non-refundable so.. we're going. Lotion and I decided to go JAL last night because it was either American Airlines or JAL... they were the same price but the plane is nicer on JAL, so we went with that. As I said on my twitter, I don't know if it's fate or a sign from the Arashi gods, but literally this morning I wake up to news of JAL using Movin' On as their BGM for their CMs. That's kind of insane, and now I am praying that this transfers over to our ticket ballots. tegoshidesu PLEEAAASSSEEE

lovely It's Lotion and my 6 year anniversary tomorrow. Oh my

arrowup Lastly, I have a vlog for you guys yummyface

Wow guys. This is such a late entry. I've been meaning to post this for the past couple days but it never happened *O*

Aaaanyway... this calls for a BULLET STYLE UPDATE YO

cd MY COPY OF TO BE FREE CAME IN THE MAIL ON MONDAY!! thumbsup



I already did a video of it on YT, so some of you have already seen, but I took pics before I opened it toooo~ I really like the cover and back in all its super plain glory hearts

shirt More clothes get? *O* Yeah well I went shopping with [livejournal.com profile] sujaeya yesterday before she flew away from me (waaahh teardrop) but we did some bargain shopping so I'm really happy with what I got and I didn't spend too much!!arrowup

melody GAIZ I AM SOOOO EXCITED FOR THIS NEW ALBUM YOU HAVE NO IDEA. I think I am gonna poo myself when I get it in the mail

plane Lotion and I have been carefully planning our trip to Nippon-land... we've been really planning every little detail and possibility for things going wrong, so if something DOES go wrong, I'mma be mad and cut a bitch. I'm so on pins and needles about the ballot results though.. shocku Now that Kokuritsu results are out, I just got super duper uneasy and nervous. THIS WAITING GAME IS JUST SO DAMN HARDDDD

heartyeyes YESTERDAY WAS KIND OF THE BEST THING EVER. Hung out with a ton of Arashi fan girls, ate dinner, then went to a ridiculously insane session of karaoke which ended in 2 1/2 hours of singing nothing but Arashi songs with bongos, maracas, blow-up air guitars, chimes, and many other miscellaneous instruments. Seriously, I think that the people at the karaoke place thought we were drunk, and then when we came out completely sober their faces were like, 'wtf mate'. THEN WE DECIDED WE WANTED SPARKLERS so we drove all around town trying to find them but we COULDN'T, so we settled on s'mores which are EQUALLY AS GOOD and then found sparklers miraculously at [livejournal.com profile] hinats place, and then proceeded to make a fire and run around a gigantic empty field with sparklers screaming and singing.

That was a gigantic pile of word vomit but kind of exactly how I feel at the moment and I didn't get home until 3 am but it was so worth it. hearts

It's a random-y sketch thing but I enjoyed coloring it. As you've maybe noticed I've started updating my DeviantArt account more often.. but yeah. I'm working on it

Mmm... sort of random post, but I wanted to do a quick little translation of something.. and I know that people have translated these already, but... not to sound mean or anything, but the translations that I found were very... wrong sweat

So.. I bring you Sho's now infamous 'Pervert Pianist' entry, and the J-web entries from the other members for 'To Be Free'! hehehehe

I hope that even though there are already translations of these, it is a little easier to understand, and much more natural sounding. pencil (よーしガンバリマス!!)

DO NOT claim these as your own. I spend a lot of time translating these, please be respectful.

So I got my Charlotte Russe order in today! I didn't realize that everything I ordered was WHITE until I opened it.. ;; but in my defense, I was going to buy something dark grey, and I really wanted it, but as soon as I checked out, they were out of stock sadface.

But hey, at least I got an awesome deal on these shirts cake

SO. I thought that I'd ask for help I guess.. what do you think of the shirtsssss and do you guys think that I should take any of them back? These pictures are dark cuz it's late, and I'm exhausted so... augh why am I sharing these pictures again? Oh yeah, for the sake of fashion!

Halp!? )


So, what do you think ladies??

I'd also like to say that I have fallen absolutely, head over heels in love with this song:



I. Can't. Stop. Listening to it. If you do take a gander, I urge you to listen to it with headphones on, and listen at least to the chorus part *_* I'm not a HUGE Dear Cloud fan, but I do enjoy some of their music, but this one is just like.. GAH compared to all the other ones. I think because the lead vocal's voice just fits SO WELL to the feel of the entire piece.

Lastly, this week's Arashi vlog



I am sleeping early today, seriously my body is just in retaliation mode now I think ; as soon as I post the Project 5x10 thing I'm outta herrreeeee

Look at how clean my art table is! Holy crap!!


I enjoy creating things. I mean, I graduated from an art school, so I better enjoy it.

Anyway, I basically spent the entire day cleaning today. I spent a good chunk of that going through my art table and cleaning things up. I literally was dusting every single nook and cranny of the damn thing... so I'm pretty proud of what I have now. I went through everything that I had out and put away all my school artwork unless I wanted to keep it out here.

I came across my intro to photography notebook and I was going through it, and ended up finding a lot of my black and white developed photos.. I always enjoyed that part of photography. Even though my black and white ones didn't turn out as nice as the color ones, I felt so much more of a connection with all my b&w ones because I had put my sweat and time into actually developing it by hand. I never learned how to develop color film, so all my black and white photographs are very special to me.

I found two photos that really struck me, still. I'm not sure why, but I felt a sense of pride when I looked at them and wanted to frame them and put them on my wall immediately.. but suddenly I thought, "These are the originals! What if I fuck up something in the process of framing it...?" so.. I ended up scanning them. Hopefully I won't just leave it sitting around on my HDD, and actually print out copies and put them on my wall.

Two pictures under the jump )


I don't know why these two struck me, but they did. They're not fantastic or masterpieces.. in fact the berry one is super under exposed... but I actually kind of like that about it. It's really texture-y and has a lot of weight to it. Honestly the berry one is the one that I like the most, but there was also something about the other one that struck me as well. I remember when I took these photos, and I never really imagined that they would come out like this.

Anyway enough about artsy-fartsy stuff. I hope to have these babies printed out and framed, and on my wall soon

On to what I was really going to post about. I... on a whim decided to continue the Arashi dream saga. This was actually requested by [livejournal.com profile] soothing_sight, so I thought I might as well since I've never really gotten a request before

"Would I really be satisfied with hoping this is going to end soon when we're making something great?
What are you saying? Those kinds of thoughts just won't do.
We're making something. Something amazing.

...I've got to get up early tomorrow though..


Sometimes Nino says things that just make me think. And then remind me that he is human too.

ily Nino, even though your To Be Free hair is awful (although it looked good in the making of... but not in the actual PV)

Okay so I was relaying the dream that I had last night to [livejournal.com profile] sujaeya over Skype the other night and she asked me something brilliant that my measly little brain hadn't even thought about.

"Have you ever thought about making a comic strip based on your dreams?"

Wow. This needed to be done. ; especially if my dreams continue to be so damn confusing and random.

So. Without further ado I bring you the first (of hopefully more to come) of my Arashi Dream comic collection which I would like to call -- Arashi! Arashi! For Dream!

This took me way longer than I thought it would... and yet it makes absolutely no sense..

1, to post about this dream I had (I know, another dream post?? Come on, post something else for once.. I suck. But I also want to have a record of all my Arashi dreams haha)

Yes. I met Arashi. Again. NOT FOR REALZ THO.. )

But me wanting to meet Aiba resulted in me waking up at 1:00 today ;; ARGHx2000

2, vlog!!



Lookit my shiny new icon!! *points* I it.

NEW SHIRT I got it on sale at Charlotte Russe for $10. Yay!


I've actually had a bunch of stuff written in this LJ box for a while but it was all random and small things so there really was no point to me posting them. But now that I have 3 things to post, I shall do it!

So first was the shirt! Next, I had another amusing Arashi dream the other night

I got to meet Arashi. )

yeah that's it. Why is Matsujun always such a dick to me in my dreams? ;;

And lastly, something that I've been thinking about posting but never really got around to it. Nicole had a birthday recently.. (2 weeks ago-ish), and so I decided to draw her a picture of Aiba. It eventually went on a t-shirt, but yeah. This picture was a bunch of pictures combined, and then my own imagination on the rest of it.. it didn't turn out as I was imagining it, unfortunately ._.; but oh well! It's Aiba. And a little messier than my last drawing. I think I'm gonna end up drawing the whole group eventually. I'd like to!

I didn't record it this time... well, I recorded 1/2 of it, then found out that it was messed up and decided not to try to salvage it. I kind of wish that I had.. oh well

If any of you have pictures of Arashi that would be good turned into a CG painting like this, let me know

I should be sleeping because I'm so exhausted.

But I couldn't sleep without saying this:

Blagh.

So my YouTube account got suspended. For something that I really didn't think would affect me at all. But I guess it did.

I've decided I'm not going to let this get me down, though. And I'm going to be extremely careful in the future of what I post up on my account.

Anyway, I made a new account. It's amaieggchan so if you want, please subscribe.

And here's this week's vlog. Enjoy!

The comments on Random Balls has finally begun to subside... but it's amazing to me how many people responded to it, it really is... it's already gotten over 250+ downloads! *is happy*

I wanted to post up this week's vlog and I realized that I FORGOT TO MENTION RANDOM BALLS IN IT. I feel like such a dunce, since I told everyone that I would let them know as soon as I posted it up ;;;

Aaanyway, I'll make a separate video for it I guess... for now, here's the vlog!


The screen shot selections were seriously ALL extremely unflattering.. *sigh*


And of course, I can't forget...

お誕生日おめでとうニノ!!

Well, here it is folks. After 4 long months of grueling work, hunching over a drawing table, crying in front of a computer with a tablet, and getting little to no sleep, it's finally here. (a month late, but.. who's counting? Oh.. maybe those people who have been waiting for me to post this up here for a month ;;) er.. yeah

My Senior Project... a 16 page comic made entirely by myself.. also known as... "RANDOM BALLS: The Fan Comic". I hope you are enjoy

Anyway, without further ado... venture in... IF YOU DARE.



ENJOY!!! )


And for those of you who are interested in having this on your COMPUTER (that would be awesome if you did..) I uploaded a zip file for your viewing pleasure

Finally, here are some pictures from my graduation ceremony/gallery show. I painted the text on the wall by hand and yes, it was as much of a bitch as it looks like it is. Hammering the glass and measuring the wall and paper was 10 times easier than painting those damn letters. Parent's faces, and name are blurred out because I don't feel like sharing, sorry



Graduation! )


...and... that's it!!
eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - Sho WHEEE)
So I was at work, and just about to do something there when I suddenly hear from someone that Arashi is going to be coming by because they are filming part of Saigo no Yakusoku in my work building (???) ;; I dunno.. but anyway, I got SUPER excited and couldn't do anything else for the rest of the day... I kept thinking to myself, "Why would they be way over here just to film Saigo no Yakusoku?!" but it really didn't matter in the end...

Finally they showed up, and they started filming stuff outside of my door. I was like.. ridiculously excited and couldn't wait, because apparently they were going to be filming stuff inside my workplace too.

Finally they came in.

And I met Arashi.

;_____________; when I found out this was a dream I was really kind of sad lol...

While some of the other members were filming I had the pleasure of meeting Nino. Who promptly decided it was time to give me a quiz to see if I like them just for their money (wtf?? lol) This whole thing was entirely in Japanese, but he basically was like...

"Raise your hand if you like me because I have money"

..nothing..

"Raise your hand if you like me because I'm famous"

..nothing..

"Raise your hand if you like me when I am acting in plays and movies"

Up goes my hand

...up goes his hand

It was kind of touching

After that, I hung around with the other members.. we ate food, and they asked me questions and I asked them questions. Then, the very last thing was they were all counting up for some reason. I really don't remember why, but it was for the end of the filming day or something. Anyway, I was sitting next to Ohno and he was counting.. and then suddenly I laughed really hard. He looked at me and was like, "What??"

I turned around to him and said, "大野くんが数えられると思わなかった"

....."I didn't know that you could count"

WTF ME?!!? LOL

He just laughed at me and smiled. After they left, I suddenly got really upset for not getting their contact info. Because there was so much more that I wanted to tell them, and ask them. But then I heard that they were coming back in a few days to finish filming But I woke up right before I met them again. Noooo!!!

Oh my dreams. It's been a while since I've had them all in my dream though.
eggchan: (K-Pop//DBSK - Jaejoong /facepalm)

Haha.. [livejournal.com profile] yay_box introduced this little gem on her LJ earlier today. It's so fun! cherry


BEFORE I START I JUST WANT TO SAY.. my thoughts on the whole thing where people are complaining about Arashi not getting enough rest, or that they are hogging the spotlight etc. How do I feel about this...? Honestly I think that they deserve the spotlight. They have worked very hard to be where they are today, and I don't think that other groups are being 'ignored' because of Arashi. Yes, I think that other groups are being ignored, but not because of Arashi. That's just stupid.

On the other topic, yes Arashi is working hard... they have lots of shows and movies and singles and albums and concert tours that they are doing... but I honestly believe that Johnny knows how to take care of his.. property as we can so lightly put it. Does Arashi seem tired sometimes? Yes. Does Arashi seem unhappy? No. I do not feel that Johnny is making them work so hard as to affect their wellbeing, their mental health, and their life. Hell, if that was happening.. we would be having the issues that are extremely prevalent in the K-pop world right now.. *coughSuperJuniorDBSKcough* If Johnny was treating his talent so painfully badly, don't you think that someone would have sued him for that already? J&A was created 33 years prior to SME.

Okay so.. that out of the way.. life lately has been... just ridonkulous. That's about the only way that I can describe it. Between going to work, and all the different gatherings that I have been going to, between birthday parties and going away parties..

It's just nutso *insert emoticon of nuts that I don't have*

I also feel kind of overwhelmed with the translation projects that I have... granted, I picked them.. ;; I shouldn't have picked so many. Oh well, at least I'm almost done with the one that's been giving me the biggest trouble.. *shakes fist at 世界一受けたい授業*

So... what have I been up to this week..?

Let's find out! Bullet style~! )

And now we're here. And I'm exhausted. But I have translating to do, so I'm gonna do that ;

As another note -- I'm on pins and needles about the whole balloting thing. IS IT GOING TO WORK OUT OR NOT......???
