Sick day today so what better time than to work on some translations |D

Won't go too into details but I've got Aiba and Nino's parts of the interview here for your reading pleasure Nino is so full of himself in this interview lmao

Will do Ohno's lata!

So Arashi is coming out with another single, Dear Snow. face26

I pre-ordered it because I am a loser... LOLLERFACE.

Sooo yeah. I feel really bad for not uploading LJ stuff recently ; I want to update more, but it's difficult when I have soooo much that I want/need to do..

Plus I have 2 translation things that are taking me FOREVER for AnM and I feel like poo for not getting those done faster. But I also want to do magazine translations...

AAARGH! LMAO Why is this so frustrating to meeeee

I've basically been working a lot. Monday was almost an 11 hour work day, and that was painful.

On Tuesday I met up with some of the girls for a movie night which turned into "Nino Tuesday" because we watched Ao no Honoo and Sukoshi wa, Ongaeshi Dekitakana. Both movies were DEPRESSING, I'll tell you that much. Thanks for ruining my Tuesday, [ profile] mystical_mayhem!! lol

But I will say that Sukoshi wa, Ongaeshi Dekitakana was actually pretty darn good for a made for TV movie. I really enjoyed Door to Door, so I was hoping this would be good. Nino also did an awesome job as usual... there were of course a few slightly awkward/cheesy moments, but it's hard to avoid those with TV movies lol

Hokay I should probably post up this week's vlog before I forget, shouldn't I? penguin

Why am I re-installing WoW?? horse
eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - Ohno)
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!!)

"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)

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...


Today is Kisarazu day with Nicole! 8DDDD I want to do something for Nino's bday, too... we'll see what we can do ;;
eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - Nino Cheeks)
I know this is kind of early but I had an urge to draw a realistic picture on my computer and I was trying to figure out who to draw and I realized that it's kind of close to Nino's birthday and so I did a picture of Nino

It's been an extremely long time since I've looked off a picture to draw something, and doing a realistic picture on the computer is actually a first for me Which is why I had so much trouble while making it -- I had some trouble spots and also his eyes bothered me a lot. I couldn't get them like they were in the picture because he is looking into the camera in the original and in mine he looks like he is looking slightly down But as many times as I tried I couldn't fix it. But I am pretty satisfied with the way it came out

Anyway, I used a photo of him from the Strangers on a Train pamphlet, and it was actually really fun! I like the original picture a lot.

And I recorded my process, which is also a first for me and I uploaded it to YouTube


...and click here to see the final image! 8D Please view it at full size! )

Yaaaaaaay! 8D

So I'm finishing up the February issue of Popolo  I had some extra time on my hands and wanted to translate, so here I am!

T/N!!: The word 約束 (yakusoku) means 'promise', but in Japanese can also mean something similar to plans made with your friends/family. For example, if someone asks you if you want to go out to eat but you already have plans, you could reply something to the extent of "ごめんね、約束があるよ" (Gomen ne, yakusoku ga aru yo "I'm sorry, I already have plans") So please keep this in mind while reading this as the interview spans many different ways to interpret the word "promise" in Japanese.

Not having to make promises is the best... )

sun Aiba's Interview
sun Sho's Interview

Also. I managed to watch the first half of the debut in Hawaii video, and just finished the part where Jun is on drugs and wakes everyone up. I've seen this video countless times, but I seem to always forget about this part:

HOW ADORBS IS THIS?? I demand more Arashi sleeping together videos!!

Oh yeah, and:

It's okay, Ohno. We understand.

I think this video is in some serious need of [ profile] spazzcrack-ifying.

Why the fucking fuck is this so funny!!!!! *crawls back into her chair*
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: [ 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.
eggchan: (J-Drama//Stand Up!!)
I'm not really sure how something this subtle and small could have touched me so much, but I had to rewind the DVD while I was watching it. I seem to be moved by very small occurrences lately, but I suppose that's not a bad thing.

At first, I didn't notice Sho had walked up behind Nino and slinked his arms around him, but after the fireworks shot off, I noticed it, which prompted me to rewind. And then watch it 50 times.

I was.... actually really touched by this really small movement. Sho moved slowly behind Nino, then touched him lightly on the sides to alert him that he was there before he wrapped his arms around his waist. It seemed like a moment that has happened a million times before--something that I feel is an extremely important part of a friendship. It just appeared to be such a familiar gesture to Nino, the moment he felt Sho behind him he gently lifted his arms without flinching or looking behind him, and reached around to touch him ever so slightly. And then right before the fireworks go off, Sho pulls the hug into Nino's chest.

On second thought, no. This isn't a hug. It's like a sense of security having your best buds around, there for you to hold on to or lean back on whenever the need arises. To be close to one another and just have someone nearby that you love and loves you back that isn't your mother, or your father, your siblings, or your boyfriend.

These kind of things used to happen around me and my friends and I kind of wish I didn't take it for granted. Friendship this close is something that doesn't come by that often. I'm just glad that it happened to come around these five people because they really have something special and we all get to watch it unfold into some kind of beautiful mess.

I think I am falling very far from this, and I'm really in need of getting it back. I was able to have it once again for a few fleeting months in Japan, and I will never forget it.


I think only I could come up with something this far-fetched from a gif of two guys spooning. -_-;
eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - Aiba the genius)
So, today I sat around on my ass. Seriously ;; but sometimes it's good to just have a day to laze around. I watched some G no Arashi, did some translation work (I'm doing episode 77 of Himitsu no Arashi-chan *cheers~* my first full length show, guys! But I don't think I'll ever have time to do it again ;;) and I worked on my internship. I also cleaned (少しだけw) and had some dinner with Lotion.

But you guys. Totally in love with the new Myojo shoot!! Outdoor photo shoot, how much more could I ask for?! Actually I kind of badly want a new photo book to come out. I am really really loving the one with Nino on the electric keyboard guys

I~'m sensing a new layout is in order!!

More picture spamming 8D )

I apparently have nothing to say about Ohno's pictures ; I'M SORRY OH-CHAN. YOU FORGIVE ME DON'T YOU

OH, does anyone have any good LJ posting clients that they use and recommend? I used to have Semagic, but I'd like some recommendations. I feel like I'm in the caveman era posting from the LJ client.

I feel like I have to re-do my ipod entirely, but that would take a day and a half. Oh well.

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

XDDDDDDDDDDDDD You do that body roll, Nino

I hope you all have a great holiday!
eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - Ohno)
First of all, thank you to [ profile] koibito_moon for the lovely virtual snowflake cookie gift! ^^

Right now I'm not sure how I feel about snowflakes though, because we are supposed to get a record 16 inches of snow overnight. STOOOOOOOOOP.. pleeeaseee

Anyway, guess what day it is? It's CHRISTMAS AIBA'S BIRTHDAY 8D. And to celebrate, I bring you... Nino? ;;

err yeah. well... I saw this clip this morning while at work, and thought it was so cute that I had to sub it! Nino is such a freaking stinker, I swear. I tried putting a watermark in this one, but it really didn't like me and so I gave up in the end

Everyone have a great holiday, and stay safe!! Unlike me who has to brave the storm tomorrow for Christmas festivities

Once again Nino speaks with such eloquence. This one was fun to translate, and I'm learning a lot of new kanji *cheers*

Please keep in mind that this interview was taken at the end of October. Nino references to a lot of things that have already happened, don't get confused lol

Our 10th anniversary is already perfect! )

It was so cold today. 2 degrees, seriously wtf. It was like -15 with the windchill. Save me T_T 助けてくださ~い
eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - Sho has balls)
Hey everyone. I felt that it's been a while since my last translation, so I thought I'd work on a little more and get.. un-rusty. if that's possible haha

Today I bring two members, Aiba and Nino from the December issue of Myojo. They talk about the past year and once again Nino goes off on a really philosophical rant about teacups (seriously this boy is whack and a genius at the same time, although aren't they always?)

Please don't take this out of my journal without my permission.

Up next is Ohno and possibly Sho paired with it

I’m really happy that our concert venues are getting bigger, our CDs are selling, and more and more people are watching and listening to Arashi’s songs. )

I don’t really have any special thoughts about us being able to do a 10th year concert. )

Part 2: Ohno and Sho interviews
Part 3: Jun Interview
eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - Nino eated all the cooki)

Lookie lookie lookie!! 8DDDDDD

And if you look reeeeeally closely, you can see the reflection of my Ohno 5x10 Tour poster, Jun's creepy smile + the rest of my poster plastered walls Ahhh I'm happy I got it~ although, it's the RE, and I am sad that it doesn't come with the giant photoshoot like in the LE oh well, huh.

Yay @ my new Nino + cookie icon!! I'm sure it was originally a gameboy but for some reason since it was drawn over with a cookie, it makes it look like he's holding something really.. dirty (cuz.. it's hard to tell what's going on down there honestly!!) Also, I couldn't believe that [ profile] ghostygloom made icons out of my sims!Arashi caps hahaha

I also read the interview that was with Nino in BRUTUS. Seriously, how does that boy speak with such elegance? I dunno, but every time I read an interview with him, his words always seem to carry some sort of hidden meaning behind all of them. It's always interesting to hear him talk about his take on acting.

“Considering the feelings of the people watching the movie, I would act in such a way so as to not awaken them from their illusion.” -- How does he do it? Honestly, it must just be something so natural to him, because most people would have a hard time with all those points to remember floating around in their head. I also read in another interview that he always acts and talks perfectly normal 3 seconds before the camera starts rolling, and he feels bad about it because it confuses the other actors and he says makes it harder on them.. and then there's the lines and the emotions that are supposed to be carried with those lines. What to do, where to do it, how to do it... when and where to look at what time.

Well he's obviously just a natural talent. And a freaking snarky bitch.

Also, I discovered this photo manip today and I think I just about died laughing.

sobbbbssssss i wish i could create gold like this
eggchan: (K-Drama//Kim Bum)
So my dad called me about 1/2 an hour ago. The first thing he says is, "So how's Arashi?"

I was like "...... what..?" lmao wtf dad rofl ajklha;gd

Also, I found an old Dick Blick gift card while cleaning with Lotion today. I decided to just check how much was left on the card... $100.00. WTF?? I don't remember getting a gift card for Dick Blick and never using it ;;

ummm... anyways...

I also downloaded the new "The Television" scans from [ profile] arashi_yuuki. I was looking through it, and they had pictures from old photoshoots, and then I noticed...

I was at Shinokubo Station a lot ;;

I know I keep freaking out about these things, but it's still so hard for me to believe that I was there, you know?? BUT THAT WAS THE STATION THAT LOTION AND I USED FREQUENTLY WHEN WE WENT TO SHINJUKU. ajkhldgdalala?? It looks exactly the same wtf. And in the article it says something about when they were shooting for Pikanchi, and that this shoot was done around "Korea Street" WHICH IS WHERE WE WALKED every time we went to the station and where I got some of my DBSK stuff does anyone have this photoshoot??? 見たいな~

It also motivated me to look at Pikanchi again when they go to Tokyo and there were quite a few other places that I recognize. It was like, "omg, I was THERE! And THERE! WTF! "

...I need to calm down ;;

I also then watched Pikanchi Double. What a fucked up movie, seriously ;;

And now I'm downloading The Sims 3. ; I want to play that game. And guess what kind of family I am going to make *glee* But there's still about 6 hours left to the download rofl.

On that note, I will end with this: wait, I'll end it on Nino's snark/fail:

eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - Nino - >:3.)

It's really weird being in Japan for this. Also I don't really have my pictures/etc to make a graphic, so sorry for being cheap Nino :P

And I'm watching a show with Masami-chan and a bunch of Japanese comedians in old lady outfits and scary makeup and jewelery picking out items in a 100 yen shop (???) Well, at least Masami-chan is cute
eggchan: (K-Pop//Suju - Leeteuk is falling~//gif)
So I'm banning myself from LJ. So... hiatus I guess?? lol.. I always think to myself.. "I'll just quick check my f-list" or "I'll just update really quick" and then 2 hours are missing. :x

Now that I've made my last [ profile] spazzcrack post, I think now is a good time. So if you guys don't see me commenting etc, that's why. I need to work on getting ready LOL. Also if there's any huge news/scandals/things I need to know or whatever you are welcome to drag me back. (Like when I was gone for 4-5 days right when Ohno's scandal came out. Thx to [ profile] xumiie for informing me D:)

I'll probably make a post right before I go to the airport, and then when I arrive in Japan... then you guys are gonna get spammed with me screaming :)

My lifelong dream is finally coming true. It got lost somewhere in the middle, but it's back.. and I am ready (I think). Time is moving at a snails pace and at light speed at the same time.

So with that....

See y'all on the flip side ♥♥♥

I honestly did not do anything to this gif to make it glow at the end. It's like showcasing the power of the Nino!salute. O lawdy
