omg I so suck at this livejournal thing now.

It's really quite strange how my fandom life has really shifted from posting all the time on LJ to trying to keep up with a YouTube channel and a million other things that I'm doing.

I've got quite an interesting weekend booked this week -- I'm suuuuper excited!!

bell On Friday (tomorrow.. or.. today..?) I'm going to meet up with [ profile] katzichan and [ profile] mynamelessname for bubble tea tiemz and just chatting and fun timmmeeeess!!

After that I have plans with [ profile] mystical_mayhem and the other girls for another drama night. I AM EXCIIIITE.

lightbulb On Saturday I'm meeting up with my Japanese language partners and taking them to the capital building here and I need to figure out what I'm gonna do later with them but they have like the whole day off to hang out with me (which makes me feel really happy that they actually wanna hang out with me!) I'm thinking of bringing them to dinner to a Japanese restaurant because Lotion wanted to go out and eat there. They supposedly have okonomiyaki and a bunch of other stuff. But yeah!! I'm really excited for that!

beerchan THEN! Lotion and I may or may not be going to the circus on Sunday...

pencil I've been working on that Seventeen translation. I got Aiba's done, but not Nino's yet.. unless people desperately want the translation now I'll post Aiba's and then Nino's and Ohno's later, but.. I think I'm gonna wait until I finish Nino's

wallet I pre-ordered Hatenai Sora... I seem to have this urge to get every single CD that Arashi comes out with lol... although honestly? So far this fandom is not as expensive as being obsessed with video games. I feel like I'm spending 1/2 as much on actual fandom stuff, and then using the other money for stuff that I never bought before.. (like.. clothes LOL)

melody2 I listened to Time Capsule. It was a shitty radio rip.. which I'm really sad for because I didn't think it was bad.. I usually only listen to radio rips if they are HQ >_<;;; but I wanted to say that.. the song is completely different than what I had imagined and... I kind of like it a lot so far :x here's hoping the whole thing is great!!

tv Yep I'm posting this again. lol

eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - 僕の見ている風景)
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 [ 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 - Group crazies)
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

hamburger I feel like I'm forgetting something so don't be surprised if you see an EDIT: in this entry.

And now off I go to continue translating Himitsu no Arashi-chan...
eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - Sho 青)
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


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 [ 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 [ 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

rice SPEAKING OF AWESOME, [ profile] hinats yoinked napkins from Keikarou and was so awesomely kind to give us each one!! HOW NERDY IS THIS SERIOUSLY I AM NOW THE PROUD OWNER OF A NAPKIN *rubs it on her face*

HAPPY BIRTHDAY [ profile] woelvs !!!! 8DD
eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - Sho 青)
I've gotten so many wonderful birthday wishes today, I can't even begin to thank everyone  Starting right from this morning when my phone started going off like crazy sending me messages from Facebook wall posts -- I couldn't sleep after that  I even got some birthday wishes from people I don't even know!! How crazy is that?

And [ profile] mystical_mayhem told me to have a day as fabulous as Matsujun, but I told her if I did I would be blind by now

I got a bunch of different birthday pictures from people~ They're so cute!

Check them out~ I love them! )

Also my mom gave me some really pretty flowers, so I took some pictures of it...

A few more... )

Lotion also took me out to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner. Mmmmm so yummy~

 Thank you so much for everything!!
eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - Jun is faaabulous)
Okay, so [ profile] mystical_mayhem and Bethany (I still don't know her LJ I think ) got back from Japan last week, and I had asked if she could pick me up a few things... and if she was going to the Johnny's shop for some Troublemaker shop photos

Well, we had planned to get together on Friday and hang out and stuff... what I was expecting to get was the Pikanchi photobook and some Troublemaker shop photos.

Here's what happened instead:

 Biggest fucking haul ever, seriously.

Yeah. No amount of hearts and sparkles can express how amazing it was. So it turns out that her and Bethany planned a mini surprise birthday party for me. THIS IS SO SWEET. People don't do things like this for me, I really don't deserve it! T_T  They had decorated and got a cake with a picture of Arashi on it and rainbow colors and, and had hats and balloons and everything and aaajl;gh;ahdk. And Nino even decided to stop by for a bit!!! haha... [ profile] mystical_mayhem printed out a picture of Nino's face and pasted it on to a cardboard cut out of Taylor Lautner ;; They pick the least muscular one of Arashi and put it on a muscular man -- that was kind of frightening! Too bad Nino was feeling under the weather so his throat hurt and he couldn't talk much, and he didn't move cuz he was "sore from working out" as I was told by [ profile] mystical_mayhem.

Anyway, click here if you want more details!! )

This is AMAZING. SO SWEET. I am so sad that I didn't bring my camera! But [ profile] mystical_mayhem came to the rescue and took some pictures for me/us  We had ice cream cake, and played some games, talked, chilled... ahh it was great after my long "Spring Break" (aka sitting and working on dreaded Senior Project for 5 days straight )

Ahhh... after that, there was an impromptu fan meeting with us girls. Unfortunately [ profile] mystical_mayhem and Bethany couldn't make it to that but I scooted myself over to the dinner spot where me and [ profile] katzichan, [ profile] lyricalidol, [ profile] unlostwanderer, Barb, [ profile] hidekodahlia, and [ profile] zelflame promptly screamed/laughed/had tons of fun and probably scared all the other patrons at that restaurant.

Then we popped over to get some spontaneous ice cream while we walked around in a square and talked/hummed songs/made random Arashi "in-jokes". I love those.

And then off we went to Karaoke  I managed to yoink one of the 失敗 Nino heads and it had tape on it, so I thought Nino shouldn't miss this party and I stuck the Nino head in the middle of the Karaoke screen which proved to be quite lulzy when his head was perfectly aligned with an antelope's body, or some hula dancers, or tiny baby shirtless children ETC. ETC. ETC.

Oh... it's nights like those that you wish would never end.

On the plus side -- 5x10 DVD party in 2 DAYS! I just need to somehow survive work tomorrow without going apeshit crazy from anticipation. I have been trying oh so hard to not spoil myself with those pretty teasers people are posting up on [ profile] arashi_on.
eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - Group crazies)

Yesterday was the most amazing, Arashi-filled, insanity crazy cake eating karaoke screaming present opening fantastical day ever.

I will elaborate, but I just don't have time right now I'm sorry.

But can I just say this:

THANK YOU SO MUCH [ profile] mystical_mayhem and Bethany for everything!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU T____T

AND [ profile] katzichan, [ profile] unlostwanderer, Barb, [ profile] hidekodahlia, [ profile] lyricalidol, and [ profile] zelflame SUCH WONDERFUL PEOPLE I CAN'T EVEN BEGIN TO SAY EVERYTHING I WANT TO SAY.

I love you all. Arashi fandom is amazing.
eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - Ohmiya *squish*)

I was re-watching the 2004 24-hour TV segments of each of the members. Ohno's always seems to get me the most. To refresh your memory if you don't remember, it's the one where a group of 11 deaf high schoolers wanted to dance. So Ohno took on the task of helping them out, teaching them the dance steps, and just getting to know them.

Near the end, they were still kind of fumbling up and having a hard time remembering the dance moves, so Ohno ended up extending them 11 tickets for their upcoming concert in Osaka. While there, he ended up giving them their group "sign" to try to reach them and let them know that he's thinking of them.

Afterwards, I guess they all ended up sending him mail to his phone, and one of the girls said this:

"I always blamed all my problems on my hearing loss until I started to hate myself and lost my enjoyment for living. But when I watched Arashi's concert, even though I couldn't hear it, I enjoyed music for the first time."

This really touched me. Although I'm not deaf, and haven't experienced anything close to that, I feel that with Arashi's music it was kind of the first time that I was able to really enjoy it. And then seeing their concerts was a whole different story.

It really did give me slight misty eyes. I am so thankful that they are able to make not just myself, but other people -- even deaf people enjoy music, because just listening to the music isn't the only part of it, you know? There's so much more to it, and thoroughly enjoying it is the most important and best part.

And then seeing Ohno crying like a little baby at the end, so proud of them that he's completely speechless, didn't help matters.

I love that Arashi and their fans can move me so much :)

So, [ profile] sujaeya came back from Japan recently, and I had (obviously) shoved money in her hand to get me goodies I got them tonight~ *cheeeeeeerrrs*

First off, is something I didn't think she would be able to find -- a used Arashi CD! lol

Swag! )

Anddd~~ She got me this book about Arashi It's so freaking awesome. I'm sorry but I'm not lj-cutting this because it is too hilar.

The cover of the book...

It has a comic in it where it depicts their concerts... with their debut outfits...

...their sparkly-ness...

...their vegetable dance...


She also got me this adorable onigiri maker where you can make shapes of a bear head, a heart, and a star. yaaaayyy

I'm also going to wave at [ profile] yuji cuz I wasn't even aware she still read LJ *waves* HIIII~

Last but not least, I have been thinking about doing this for a while, but I decided to sport a Matsupuff today.

eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - Ohno beauty)

This photoshoot is freaking awesommmeee just look at how inflexible Mr. Failboat is there haha

What an interesting year it was.

I did and saw way more than I ever thought I would.

Biggest accomplishment for me - exploring and experiencing Japan. Loving it. Hating it. Making wonderful friends. I experienced things that I'd never experienced or thought I would experience before in my life.

+ Lived through 3 earthquakes
+ Saw a solar eclipse
+ Wore a yukata
+ Rode the shinkansen (so freaking awesome )
+ Saw Tohoshinki
+ Went to a matsuri
+ Explored Nagoya
+ Ate crepes
+ Went to Tokyo Disney & Sea
+ Went to Tokyo!
+ Visited Johnny's Shop 6 times
+ Addiction to Book Off
+ Addiction to Kiatenzushi (curse you discount sushi!!)
+ Traveled and saw Ise Shrines, the ocean, Nara, many many many many other places
+ Climbed mountains, saw 1,500 year old trees and temples
+ Saw Mount Fuji
+ Went to Odaiba -- SAW VS ARASHI TENT AND VS ARASHI COIN TOWER PUCKS (I have pics I never shared them sorry ) and saw giant gundam
+ Stayed at a ryokan

....etc. etc. etc. etc. I don't think this list will ever end.

2009 was a rollercoaster, to say the least. I'm looking forward to 2010 although it's through some pretty terrified eyes. There's going to be a big change in my life, whether I like it or not.

I've also accepted a translators position at [ profile] ao_no_michi. I'll still be posting up small little projects here possibly, and most definitely will be continuing to post magazine articles here, so if you have any requests please let me know

With all that aside... I'd like to share something amusing.

My friend [ profile] daone_shh I met in Japan sent me a holiday card and I received it a few days ago. But, when I looked at where it was addressed to, I suddenly burst into laughter.

Why, you may ask? )

Tsemin, hun.. I couldn't tell if you did that on purpose or if it was a mistake. Either way, it made me laugh and sorry for making fun of you on my blog

Well -- HERE'S TO A WONDERFUL 2010 GUYS *clinks glasses*
eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - Group)
Thanks for all the encouragement and lovely comments/messages you all gave me. ♥♥

You guys are the best!! ^^

Also waking up to this helps:

It's so awesome I want them I GOT them 8D woo haha actually all of their new AU CMs are hilarious and adorable. I like how there's a giant bath tub at the end they hop into.. director-san has been paying attention to their Fukuoka MCs? XD
eggchan: (K-Pop//SHINee (is Shiny))
♥ Hung out with [ profile] katzichan, [ profile] lyricalidol, [ profile] unlostwanderer, and (new LJ friend!) [ profile] hidekodahlia yesterday for karaoke and flailing at a restaurant (haha). Oh lord, I don't remember the last time I've had that much fun with a group of friends. We sang tons of Arashi songs, some DBSK stuff, and a few other random songs. <3

♥ When we were sitting at the restaurant and talking about random stuff (i.e. screaming and annoying the other customers), we started talking about STORMY and their member cut recently. I mentioned that I somehow managed to make the cut and I had no idea how. [ profile] hidekodahlia said that it was maybe to do with the fact that I'm co-creator of one of the more well known LJ communities and [ profile] katzichan seemed to agree. But I'm kind of just in shock. Of course I'm happy to hear that.. I don't think [ profile] xumiie and I would ever have thought that [ profile] spazzcrack would have become what it is today.. but I mean.. I never even really considered [ profile] spazzcrack to be one of the bigger well known ones.. I always kind of thought we were just a little community. idk?? am I way off on this one?? lmao.

♥ I've been doing my workout stuff. And I found the most amazing thing. My cooldown time is about 5 minutes, and Kitto Daijoubu just happened to come up on my ipod right when the cooldown time started, and the beat to that song goes EXACTLY to the speed of how fast I'm supposed to walk, and it's pretty much 10 seconds shy of 5 minutes. Long story short, dancing on the treadmill is fun.

♥ SHINee's new song. SHINEE'S NEW SONG. HOLY FUCK SHINee HOW MUCH MORE AMAZING CAN YOU GET. Ughhhh I love it so hardcore. ajk;ah *REPEAT FOREVER*

♥ I got my new issue of Potato recently!! The cover is hideous! But you know what that means.. Working Arashi! And a thing that tells me random things about Nino that I really didn't need to know.. like that his nose is 3.1 cm long (AND POSTERS/GLOSSIES) (and random walk News wtflolz)

The colors on the cover make me wanna puke *note my face )

♥ I'm still on the fence about 2ne1's new song. There are parts that I really like and some parts that I don't. Idkkkk I should stop being so wary and just like it. Also, I refuse to believe that Minzy is 15. That girl is fierce.

♥ I got a Dreamwidth account thanks to [ profile] lyricalidol's kind donation of a code. I'm Nino. lollzzzzzz uggh idek.. I was on the fence about what to name myself for so long.

eggchan: (Misc//Cute Shit - Chii//gif)

I give you.. two grown men on a child's toy

→ I finally, finally got around to making a contact post because I just added like 6 new people and I figured it's high time. Those of you who are already on my f-list, if you have time to fill it out, it would be much appreciated! 8D GO GO GO

→ I was commissioned to make SS501 buttons, so I'm working on those. Hee... drawing sunbae xD I can't believe one member is named "Kim Hyung Joon" and another named "Kim Hyun Joong". That would confuse the shit out of me. Probably. Seeing as I still can't remember all the names of Suju :'( I've got Eunhyuk, Shin Dong, Heechul, Eeteuk, Siwon, and Kibum.

→ Watched episode 2 of ZA QUIZ SHOOOOOOW, but I'm still waiting oh so patiently for Smile episode 3 /cries

eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - XD)
First, a big hello to [ profile] no1_antielitist, from my own friending meme, cuz I'm a dork like that xD

I forgot to post this yesterday because I was too busy leaping around with joy.


Yes. I hardly ever use sparkly text, but I figured it was an occasion worth using it for. I made way more friends than I ever thought I would at my stay at MCAD... of course it has to be at my 2nd to last semester, but oh well :D

Also, to make myself look even more like a dork, we had a summer send off party on campus with a BBQ and such. They also had spin art. You know, SPIN ART. I took one look at the colors they had available, and what do I think of?

Yes. You can laugh now, [ profile] rinielenika :3 (P.S. my kanji is terrible because I wrote it fast and I just suck like that)

They had all their colors except for Jun, but that's okay (lol I'm horrible). Besides, the red and blue overlapped each other and made purple, so there you go.

And on a weird side note, [ profile] xumiie and I have created something, but I'm not sure if I should reveal what it is yet :x.. the suspense is killing me! (we are dorks)
eggchan: (C-Pop//Ariel Beauty)
