When you read this you're tagged. Take a picture of you in your current state, no changing your clothes or quickly putting on make-up. NO PHOTOSHOP. Show your F-List the real you! - got this from [livejournal.com profile] giddytron


Yep, there I am.. in all my glory(!?)


So today I went to meet 2 Japanese partners I had been paired up with through a student exchange program and we went to have lunch. It was really great, I got to speak Japanese, English, and talk with the girls about different things

One of the girls added me on Facebook before we even met, and she mentioned while we chatted that she saw I liked Arashi on my Facebook... well... there are also lots of Japanese students there who were walking around the cafe while we talked... and every time a group of them would walk by Haruna, one of the girls, would point out to me, "There are more Japanese students" lol anyway, about 1/2 way through our meeting, 2 girls that she had introduced to me earlier walked past us... Haruna waved at them, and then they ran up to her and started talking to her in Japanese... this is what went down (translated into English lol):

Girl: Did you say that that girl likes Arashi??
Haruna: Yeah she does
Girl: Have you seen her videos on YouTube? The videos? About Arashi? She does videos!
Me: o______o.....
Haruna: Oh really?
Girl: Yeah I'm pretty sure that's her!
Me: You've seen it!? O_____O;
Girl: Yeah! I thought it was you! Okay I have to go to class now, bye!
Me: o_______________o;;;; *slightly embarrassed but also extremely flattered and ecstatic that someone actually recognized me*

Yeah... so.. that was kind of fucking AWESOME. lmao

Speaking of my vlogs, here's this weeks:

eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - Nino)
I know I haven't really posted much lately, but I've been really looking forward to this week. There's so many events that somehow ended up 重ねるing on the same week... but hey I'm not complaining.

Aside from work on Monday and Wednesday (boo), I'm looking forward to an e-mail from the CultureLink program to give me a Japanese partner on Monday, I'm going to a Hanson concert with [livejournal.com profile] mystical_mayhem on Tuesday, possibly a Scott Pilgrim party on Thurs, International Day with [livejournal.com profile] hidekodahlia and meeting up with [livejournal.com profile] katzichan , [livejournal.com profile] zelflame , and [livejournal.com profile] zonbiushi to flail around Japan camp and scream Arashi things and dance and and and etc etc etc on Friday, and then Obon festival + Arashi fanmeet + seeing tons of old friends + FINALLY HAVING ANOTHER EXCUSE TO WEAR MY YUKATA and take my Ohno uchiwa and just ahjkdgha;gd!! on Sunday SO MUCH STUFF AAAAHHHH

(ALSO I HEAR THAT THE BALLOT RESULTS FOR TOKYO DOME ARE COMING OUT SUNDAY JAPAN TIME SO LIKE SATURDAY AFTERNOON/EVENING WHAT IS THIS MY LIFE)

erm... yeah. So that's that. Now I'm going to translate some more stuff thumbsup (aside from the fact that I am literally jumping around on the walls, there also happen to be some shitty stuff going on in my life right now but I've chosen to not even try to think about it for now--but I will probably be mentioning it at some point because augh things need to come out sooner or later redarrow2 yeah, try to read THAT)

Okay for real now. Right before I go to sleep... it's j-web tiemz~ catface

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

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!



P.S. I really like Aiba's outfit in the To Be Free PV

ARASHI. 4 DAYS @ KOKURITSU. WINTER TOUR.

I. WANT. TO GO. ;_____;


(but I can't...)
eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - Aiba)
Heart bullet tiem~! 8D

 Had my last classes on Friday!!! LAST CLASSES. OMG. I AM DONE. WTF?????? What is going on I don't even.

 Last day also included:
  • Free pizza for lunch

  • Free food for dinner

  • Portfolio Day in which professionals came to look at artwork!

  • Snack carts with... you guessed it.. free food!

My school really tries to spoil us in the last couple weeks. Anyway, the portfolio day went alright. I had a few people who genuinely seemed interested in using my work, and they said they would contact me. So that's exciting. I also had a few people who complimented my work, which was awesome as well. However I feel like since I've been through art school, I don't know how to take a compliment on my work anymore. I'm so used to people picking at every little thing to suggest ways to make it better I can't even take a compliment.. argh.. frustrating. Art school really chews you up and spits you out. It makes you think that you are never going to be good enough, and that you will never make it alive in the real world.

Oh well.. 頑張る? ^^;

Went to a going away party for a friend on Saturday. He's going to Yamasa in a few weeks because I suggested it to him and he immediately signed up I hope he has a great time. I am quite jealous as I have been missing Japan like woah lately

 I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day. I spent most of my day with my parents. Went over in the afternoon and then we ate lunch. My mom also wanted to make some manjuu, and so we experimented and made red bean filled manjuu. It turned out pretty tasty if I do say so myself After that we ended up watching Arashi shows. Yeah, you heard me. Arashi shows. We watched part of the Himitsu no Arashi-chan that I translated, and then an episode of G no Arashi with the Sugoroku game. It was all kinds of epic.

After that we hung around for a bit and then went to dinner, and that was that. It's been a while since I spent almost a whole day with my parents.. so it was nice.

Monday I worked and man... it was a long day.

Today was interesting 8D I did my vlog like usual, and then Nicole and Bethany came over so we could go over stuff for the Arashi fan-meet that is going on in two weeks YAAYY~! So excited! After we got burnt out from brainstorming, we just hung out for a long time, went to dinner, and then chatted. Relaxing day yay~ But I feel like there's so much I need to be doing I did get a chance to clean a bit today and that made me breathe a bit of a sigh of relief. Too much clutter around here these days

As mentioned before I've been getting extremely emotional about Japan lately. The littlest things remind me of Japan and I get so sad thinking about it and I just want to go back. I was just thinking about what it felt like when I was sitting in my room drinking lovely Japanese drinks with my window open and the TV on to some random news channel. It was.. relaxing. And.. just.. blah. Life seemed so much more simpler over there. It probably wasn't, but that's how it felt. Or maybe it was.

There are certain smells and things that I see that trigger these flashbacks and then I just get really sad. I am trying to avoid watching videos on YouTube of videos in Japan because just watching those makes me remember things! And the fact that my friend is leaving for Japan, I went back on to google maps to send him my map I made of important places and I found out that they did streetview on one of the larger streets of Okazaki and I basically walked down that road again virtually. It was..... just I don't know. I should stop talking about this because I'm going to get depressed again.

But this shouldn't be happening. I shouldn't be getting so sad about this that I get depressed over it!! So frustrated.

I really am going to be working on updating my Japan blog though. Hopefully will start that soon

Anyway, here's the vlog for this week:

eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - Sakuraiba 5x10 9.30 ♥♥)

ahjkdhadg'ahgdhad;gda!!!!


OMG!! When I got home from work today I saw a package on the kitchen table and I started grinning like a maniac.. and then I ran down to my room and proceeded to prance around like a ninny!

Ahh~~ I'm so happy!!

My first actual con DVD.

Finally ;

In other news, MONSTER you guys! Big thanks to [livejournal.com profile] emiyc for directing me to a really nice quality rip of it Every time I hear it I'm reminded of [livejournal.com profile] daone_shh... only because she was our 桃モンスター while we were out in Japan. Gosh I miss チュウハイ SO BAD. I miss many of the drinks, actually. I'm always so disappointed in the selection of drinks we have here in the states. Does EVERYTHING have to be carbonated and/or soda? I could really go for some Qoo right about now

Okay I'm gonna stop thinking about Japan before I get depressed ;;

In other OTHER news, I inked for about 4 hours last night, and I guess I really fucked up my shoulder/arm area. I've been having muscle problems for the past 2 or 3 years now, and I've been seeing a chiropractor as many times as possible but I really did myself in this time. The whole day my left arm has been hurting, and the muscle near my shoulder/shoulder blade area twitches constantly. THE most annoying thing ever.

But who cares~ I've got my 5x10 DVD~~~ LALALALLALALLALALAA

EDIT: I FORGOT TO MENTION~ My new phone wallpaper that I made earlier today 8D It was actually kind of a coincidence that all their faces happened to be pointing in a circle I am artistic on an accident-basis only 8D どうぞ~

eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - Jun @ Kokuritsu 9.30 ♥)

I have not properly fangirled about the 5x10 DVD on my LJ yet.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I had some of the local girls come over and had a little viewing party. It was marvelous. And we even had some awesome decorated cupcakes and cookies

But. Can I just say...


 Arashi was so...


  So...


 SO...


...Happy.

It makes me happy, too.


And this just--ahjkldgha;dg


I started making a few gifs to get a head start for [livejournal.com profile] spazzcrack and have a few to share on here but I ended up making way, way too many  I am not even posting half of them here augh... but there will be more to come, I promise you that!!

Everything about the DVD made me remember so much. It was a miracle I didn't start crying--although I was close. Plus, their speeches before 5x10 were so sweet... especially Nino's and Jun's.


Every time I re-watch this part it makes me feel really proud and idk just ahjdkghd;;


The beginning, I clearly remember the opening music and as soon as I heard it in the DVD I got these chills. And then when they started flying over the audience while singing 感謝カンゲキ雨嵐, every time I closed my eyes all I could see was the view from where I was standing.When they started singing We Can Make It, that's when they came around near me and as soon as the song started all I saw in my head was the image I saw when I finally, finally saw Arashi up close. After 4 long years of waiting ... and never thinking I would have the opportunity.

While I was in Japan, I learned that my dreams can come true too. I am not some insignificant soul who can only aim as low as possible so that I won't disappoint myself. I just... need to work hard

Anyway... the whole DVD was just fantastic. And the 9.30 digest they put in there of course brought back more memories. I don't remember that much rain. I remember thinking, "Holy crap it's raining a lot", but I just didn't care in the end. They cut out a lot of stuff I thought they would include, though! Which brings me to this point:

3 things that I was sad they didn't include!

1) There are no behind the scenes clips. I suppose with the sheer quantity of stuff on the DVD, though they couldn't fit any more in, but they could not have NOT filmed anything. I want behind the scenes!!

2) Why oh why did they put the part where the members told Jun they wanted him to wear his present during the encore, but not put the part where he WORE IT IN THE ENCORE?? They even put part of the encore in there! *points up at icon* See? SEE?! He is wearing it! At the encore! That made me sad.

3) They also some how very sneakily edited out the part where seconds before they covered the cake back up, J un shoved his hand into the cake and took a gigantic bite of it. And then they gave him his present and he had to wash his hands, so he ran down the stage to a puddle and washed them there  -- BUT the part where Jun kissed the camera is still in there, and if you watch it there are still bits of cake all over his mouth

I can't wait for my copy to show up!!

Also I totally forgot to post my last Vlog up, so here you go:

AHJKDH:AHEghd;gHD YOU GUYS

SO I GOT REALLY HAPPY ABOUT THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE 5x10 DVD, BUT THEN GOT KIND OF DEPRESSED THAT IT WAS THE 8/29 CON.

BUT THEN I GOT AN E-MAIL FROM CD JAPAN:

Arashi/ARASHI Anniversary Tour 5 X 10  DVD
5524 yen US$61/90  Release Date:2010/04/07
Description:DVD release from Arashi featuring footage from their "ARASHI Anniversary Tour 5 x 10" concert performance at Kokuritsu Kasumigaoka Kyogijo on August 29, 2009. Includes their all singles from "ARASHI" to "Everything" and more. Also contains digest footage from August 30, 2009 performance at the same place and footage from five major domes tour.

AND THEN I PROCEEDED TO KIND OF FREAK OUT, RUN UPSTAIRS AND TELL LOTION, AND THEN GRIN LIKE A MANIAC AND SORT OF CRY.

Lotion kept telling me to pre-order it so I went back to my computer and then he came down and said it's going to be my birthday present.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GAHHHHHHHHHHHHH

I have such a headache right now. Fangirling takes too much out of me sometimes D:
eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - Jun)


Ignore Jun and his flaming cowboy/gangster hat for just a second.. Fuck you, Nino for making me like you by just singing along to a part that isn't yours, and looking so proud of your group and of Matsujun.

I am being a really big dork and memorizing the furi for 'One Love'. I've got the intro and the chorus part down. That's mostly all that there is to the furi XD;; but they have a few dance moves in between where they spin around... and some other stuff during the solos which I can't tell what it is because the camera is never zoomed out far enough!!

And.. TROUBLEMAKER PV!! I have not officially spazzed about this on my LJ yet... I LOVE the PV! I really do. It makes me smile every time I watch it.

EDIT: [livejournal.com profile] carrotsandroses made me remember this:



The moment I saw this clip, I couldn't stop thinking about it. I don't even really know why!! But I really really like it... and then when I watched the Making Of and found out that it was Jun's idea to wear the glasses and do that with them (OF COURSE, that bastard)

Anyway.. you all know that I really like seeing how things are made, backstage footage, and just the people who I admire lazing around and being human... I really like that.

The Making Of let me see that a lot, but I was a little disappointed with it. I think it was the fact that they all had to shoot at different times (probably because of schedule conflicts), so there weren't a whole lot of interaction between all of the members. That being said... there was about 5 or 6 minutes where they were interacting with each other, and that has to be my favorite part of the video. I think I was a little spoiled by the My Girl making of, because that one was fanTASTIC.

Okay, last thing -- もう一歩! Can I say that I freaking love this song?? The first time I heard it I actually thought, "Wow... this is not what I was expecting... and I kind of hate it..." A few hours later I decided to give it another go... wow guys. I really love it, I really do.

More bullet updating! What should I do it with today? a sakura blossom? sakura a lightning bolt? how about... CAKE! :D cake

Okay, cake it is.

Worked today from 11-7. Wheewwww.. Glad I'm done with that content

Watched Yatterman with Lotion over the weekend. Omg what a perverted movie.. there were some parts in there that just make you go, "WTF THIS IS SO WRONG", but at the end you're really satisfied for some reason??

The most frustrating thing ever.. I subbed Saturday's episode of TSD (only Aiba's parts), because it was super adorable, but for some reason the only video file I can find of it doesn't let me cut it. It's something to do with the original uploader's codec I think I JUST WANT TO SHARE IT WITH EVERYONE IS THAT SO WRONG I'm just trying to share the love *sigggh* any ideas? suggestions? places I can d/l a different version? You guys will see it sooner if I get a working video file

I WANT TO HUG WHOEVER TOOK THESE PHOTOS AND WHOEVER DRESSED HIM BECAUSE THIS PHOTOSHOOT IS BEAUTIFUL.



I think this is now one of my favorite pictures of Aiba, and it may become my new layout (I desperately need one >_>)

So since my HDD failed on me, I know I have my PVs hiding somewhere, but I just don't know where. I'm afraid that I lost my Believe animated PV video, and it's practically impossible to find :\ there was one copy of it on [livejournal.com profile] arashi_on, in a locked community, and with subs, which I hate having on my PVs... anyone wanna kindly help me? plzz...?

Wow.. SHINee's new song, Get Down. What exactly is going on in this mess of a song?? I mean, I really like the other songs in the mini-album. WHAT HAPPENED TO THIS ONE seriously

Anyway.. lots and lots of updates about the Japan trip and such, but I don't have time now! T-T will definitely be updating about it later though!!
