Yes, well...

So I did want to write about what I've been doing lately, I really have.. ; I just never found the time to actually write what I wanted to.. hrmmm.

Well anyway, I actually DO want to update with stuff, so... without further ado! (In as chronological order as I can get it)

apple 2 weeks ago on Tuesday, I went with [livejournal.com profile] mystical_mayhem to see Hanson!

...more on Hanson! )

I seem to like all the groups that still play their debut song 10 years later, don't I? catface

apple Up NEXT, we have Scott Pilgrim VS the World! I saw the movie opening night, and it was really great! I highly enjoyed it, although I hear it deviates from the comic after the first 1/2, but that those who read the comic still highly enjoyed the movie.. good sign in my opinion bird It's good.

apple OBON FESTIVAL! Every year, there is an Obon festival at our local zoo here.. I wasn't able to go last year because well.. I was IN Japan, but I went again this year and we had a mini Arashi fan meet hehehehe I even managed to put my yukata on by myself... and tye the damn obi by myself as well! I'm glad I know that I can do it all by myself now. Good to know thumbsup


I was seriously surprised that I could get the obi tied by myself -- it was only the 2nd time I've done it! And that fan on the back kept popping up when I moved around, but it was for the 夏祭り in Okazaki last year -- I love it I think it's so cute! Btw my shoes totally do not match my yukata! I really don't have anything better yet! ._.;;


Of course I had to bring my Ohno uchiwa as well hehehehe Actually, we had probably 4 or 5 girls walk up to our group and ask us where we got our uchiwas... tons of other Arashi fangirls!! Compared to 3 years ago when we went and one girl working at the place thought [livejournal.com profile] katzichan's Sho uchiwa was Jun... and that's it!! I was so surprised. Seriously, Arashi is taking over the world.

I also managed to scare a bunch of Japanese girl scouts... *sigh*.. )

Anyway, it was quite fun and I'm glad that we got to go.. also, by some sort of crazy miracle bestowed upon her, [livejournal.com profile] lyricalidol found an original copy of the Kaibutsu-kun manga!! How insane is that!? And I'm almost thinking it'd be really fun to translate it haha.

apple I didn't get Tokyo dome tickets. it really really sucks... but I'm not giving up yet. I/We can't afford to buy those $700 tickets from the auctions, but I'm doing things my own way and hoping that I can get us some tickets in my own methods.

Wish me luck bomb

appleA VLOG: (It's super late this week, sryyy I forgot to post it haha)



apple And I think that mostly brings us up to date! I hope you have enjoyed this compact version of the life of egg sparkles

What is this picture of you might ask?


....a picture that I illegally took with my phone. From my seat.

Holy. Fuck.

Of course, it was taken before it rained a typhoon on us, but that's another story. Okay, UMMMMM first of all, this never happens to me. I seriously... SERIOUSLY got lucky (thanks of course to Michelle~!! such a sweetie <33). But now that I've had a taste... I must go back for more. This was seriously one of the best experiences in my life, even while in a typhoon. wtf, only Arashi. Wow. You can't see it in this picture, but the main stage was just to the left of us, so we weren't dead on, but we could see it from the front enough.

On to the con report and my incoherent flailing )

In conclusion: I was soaked to the bone, my fingers were prunes, a lot of my things got destroyed by the rain, and my shoes and socks were squishing water out of them.

IT. WAS. AMAZING.

Ugh.

By the way, if they do make a DVD of this concert (THEY BETTER), it would be really hilarious if they used this one. Because well.. you know.. Arashi.. conjuring up an arashi.. during their concert..?? XD But they were all soaked, so I doubt it. But who knows. It would be awesome if they did haha.

Anyway, I also have some bad news, but I'm going to have to write about it later, because I need to go to sleep.. like nowwwww.

But I wanted to post this up because I've spent like 5 hours writing it up and trying to scour my brain for memories of this.

In even more conclusion:

Arashi is even more amazing, and I'm not quite sure how they did it but they made me fall even more in love with them, while I was in a typhoon.

Also if any of you have questions about the con or how they look in real life etc, go ahead and ask and I'll try to the best of my ability to answer.

*death*

Alright, here goes..

My first con report ever :O (I guess my Hollywood Bowl post was kind of a con report?)

Before the concert.. )

The con begins... )

Afterward, we all filed out and as we walked out the staff gave us little cards that said that you could go online with your cell phone and get a Thank You message from DBSK, but.. alas, I can't do that lol oh well. The giant crowd of us walked to the station. I was hoping that everyone would be going back into Nagoya (I'm in the opposite direction), so the train wouldn't be so packed. I was right!! The train to Nagoya was so full, from the other side of the station I watched as people were shoved into the train so that the doors could shut. People were pressed up against the glass, like in cartoons XDD where they get smashed against a window or a piece of glass. It was pretty funny, and I am so glad I wasn't on that train. XD

The ride home was alright. At first there were no seats, so I stood and almost fell asleep ala salary man style, holding onto the hand rails...rings, whatever they're called. By the end of the night, I was so tired and hungry, when I got home I made my leftovers and pretty much passed out. XD

But wow. 3 1/2 hours of DBSK.. my first concert.. and in Japan.. first time on the train. It's definitely something I will never forget.

But I really wish it wasn't prohibited to take pictures at things like this -_-

But in the end... seeing DBSK again was quite the experience, and I truly feel so lucky that I was able to go.
