Yesterday was crazy ridiculous guys ;

So I planned to meet up with [ profile] hidekodahlia, [ profile] mynamelessname, and [ profile] katzichan for yummy Chinese food yesterday for lunch.. and I ended up bringing my 2 Japanese partners today. I guess maybe by now I could just call them my friends. ^^

Anyway, we ate and had a good time, and then we were gonna stop by and do some Karaoke at a really nearby karaoke box place... but they ended up not being open until 7pm (WTF? Their hours were definitely different before ).. anyway.. on a whim we decided to go over to the one near my house, which was about 1/2 an hour away.. lol so off we went.. we did Karaoke and had a really good time singing lots of different songs. I sang L'Arc's 'HONEY' with Akiko and KAT-TUN's 'REAL FACE' and Shuuji and Akira's 'Seishun Amigo' with Haruna... and then lots of other miscellaneous songs with the girls (and of course Arashi).

After that, I had told Haruna I would take her to the mall to return some goodies she bought and so we stopped over there quickly.. the only problem is that it was RIDICULOUSLY packed, and so I had to cut it short because I had plans in the evening and so we (attempted) to drive back. Although it took like 1 hour instead of 30 minutes to get back.

People here somehow feel that it's a good idea to close off every major highway except for one, forcing EVERYONE to go to the same damn highway which made it ABSOLUTELY PACKED WTF and then our left turn light seriously didn't turn green for 10 minutes ; so we ended up going really far south when we needed to go north, and then east to get to somewhere that would take us north and... just yea it was crazy.

When I dropped off Akiko and Haruna, Akiko suddenly pulls out this very Japanese book store looking bag and says to me, "お母さんからです!" (This is from my mom!)

... Akiko's mother apparently sent her the November issue of Myojo to give to me oh my. People really like giving me magazines it seems lmao

It was a crazy crazy drive, but in the end we made it back! Thank you [ profile] mynamelessname for driving all the way out to hang with us~! Then I got to my SECOND plans for the day, working on making our uchiwas (that we may or may not even USE lmao) with [ profile] mystical_mayhem! We stopped by the DOLLAR store and picked out some supplies and worked on those until pretty late in the evening.

We only got 1 side of them done, but we'll hopefully be able to get together and work on them some more.

We had to basically make the entire thing from scratch so we used cardboard for the fan part.. and we need to figure out what to use for the handle.. Any ideas??

I want to also mention something about my VLOGS. I hope everyone reads this...

I get some comments from people on my f-list who say stuff like, "I'm a bad friend I haven't been watching your vlogs lately" or "I'm sorry I can't watch your vlogs lately :(" etc...

Just because I post the vlogs up on my journal does not mean that I feel you are obligated to watch them. I don't want you guys to feel bad for not watching them.. it's really not that big of a deal to me ^^; the only reason I post them up on my journal is that I know there are some people who watch the vlogs primarily from LJ, and so I figured that I would continue to post them here.

So please... PLEASE don't feel bad if you don't watch/haven't been watching/don't have time to watch them.

With that said, here is a v. late vlog:

eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - Dirty Nino)
I've translated the round table discussion for "Dear Snow"... as always, these are adorable and awesome and hilarious Please enjoy~sparkles

Please don't take this out of my journal without my permission.
DO NOT claim these as your own. I spend a lot of time translating these, please be respectful.
Original Japanese text courtesy of ANJ

Ninomiya: Today our new single "Dear Snow" goes on sale! So we're going to do a round-table discussion about what you can look forward to with it!

Sakurai: The first time I heard this song, I knew it was a good one. Recently we've had a lot of bright, fast tempo songs, so I think this song is one that will really stick with you.

Aiba: For sure! The lyrics also really flow!

Matsumoto: It is a little different than all the songs that we've sung up until now, huh. And, we really don't have many winter songs.

Ninomiya: And this time the word "snow" is even in it

Matsumoto: I do like having a new outlook on the world that just screams "winter"! And the song is the theme song to "Ohoku" (in theaters now) so I was really curious as to when they would use it. And there's a section of the lyrics that seem self-sacrificial...

Sakurai: Is it a movie about sacrifice?

Ninomiya: No! It is not! (laugh)

Matsumoto: A love story, then?

Ninomiya: Well, if you were to say that, I guess it's not incorrect. It's just something that you can look forward to in the gender reversal world of "Ohoku"! I watched the movie in it's entirety, and when Arashi's song started coming on it was great because it really pulled on my heart strings!

Aiba: And I like the CD cover picture! Leader's outfit is cool!

Ninomiya: What's it like?

Sakurai: A stylish tatami room child!

Arashi: lawl

Ohno: So it was fresh?

Aiba: Yea! You were really a stylish leader. I'd love it if people paid attention to even those details.

Matsumoto: And in the first press limited edition, aside from the music video there's also a making photo version too!

Aiba: That's a first for us, isn't it. Like while the song is playing, the pictures are floating around there too.

Sakurai: There was also that rare Ohno-san and Ninomiya-san confrontation scene too! (laugh)

Ninomiya: That's only in the picture version!

Ohno: Ohh! That thing we did in the middle...

Matsumoto: That was the best part of it, that picture (laugh)

Ohno: Look forward to it! ...or something (laugh) But, the filming for the music video was... hot.

Matsumoto: It's because we were in a winter setting during summer (laugh)

Aiba: But the finished product is right on the mark! The difference between the traditional Japanese style and the stylishness is really interesting.

Ninomiya: It's really ritzy (laugh)

Matsumoto: Of course the thing to listen for is Nino's singing voice!

Sakurai: That's right. And it makes me wonder what kind of movie "Ohoku" is.

Aiba: I have to go watch the movie, and quick!

Sakurai: Truly, from my standpoint, I'd really like you to enjoy the movie along with our song!

Arashi: Huh?

Ninomiya: "My standpoint"...?

Sakurai: I mean the exact same standpoint as Nino (laugh)

Ninomiya: Thank you! Well~ it's good to be seasonal, though. I feel like you can really carefully listen to it.

Ohno: It's like autumn!

Matsumoto: Er--autumn? It's a winter song...

Ohno: There's some kind of a feeling of stability to it

Aiba: Well then~ It's a collection of autumn and winter. (laugh) It's truly a song that will leave a lasting impression on you, so we'd like you to really listen to it!

And, so that I don't clutter up my friends f-lists, I'll be posting this week's Arashi vlog. Also, I'm kind of ridonkulously hyper in this video:

eggchan: (J-Drama//Ikuta Toma)
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 - Aiba the genius)
computer I finally got a Friday off from work yesterday and it was wonderful to not have to do anything. I spent the day just lazing around, and I watched last week's episode of Himitsu no Arashi-chan... with the adorable little puppies!! SO EFFING CUTE ;____;

soccer (I know this is a soccer ball but pretend it's a bowling ball) I went bowling with a few friends on Thursday because a friend of mine is in a bowling league and he had like 75 free games that he needed to use up by the end of September lol... we used up 3 games each. I did okay, but [ profile] sujaeya totally wiped us all loll somehow she kept getting strike after strike ;

This is super late, but the moment I saw this in Natsuniji, all I could think was, "OMG IT'S BABY JUN!!" Doesn't it look like baby!Jun back from the past? Usually I don't really see a lot of young Jun in him anymore, but this face is just... I think maybe it's also the way his hair is.. he hardly has his hair like that nowadays.

tv Totally forgot to post this a while ago..

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-Drama//Mizushima Hiro - snapshot)
I've somehow gotten into this habit with my body where I'll wake up 5 minutes before my alarm goes off (sometimes an hour before as well, but then go back to sleep), with this horrible feeling that I've slept through my alarm and it is now 1pm or something.

But that's 98% of the time not the case ;;

I am totally gif'ing the crap out of the Love Rainbow making of when I get the chance heartyeyes (i.e. as soon as possible)

I had a wonderful weekend/labor day vacation. I had basically a week off from work *GASP!* and Lotion and I had planned a lot of fun stuff (and I ate way too much)

Fun weekend in bullet form! In which I took absolutely no pictures 8D )

shirt And here where are with clothes! I got 5 shirts for $30... Which... I think is a really good deal

Pictures of the haul! :D )

pencil Up next! I decided to randomly do some more J-web translations... these ones are the Nino UraArashi, and Jun's birthday J-web message. I'll get right to it, so here you go!

Please DO NOT take this out of my journal without my permission
My notes are in italic
Original Japanese: anj

Nino UraArashi Kokuritsu 8/22 )

Matsujun's 27th Birthday Message )

tv With that out of the way, here's a vlog!

cup QUESTION TO YOU ALL: I was sitting around thinking about this recently... when Anime finally started getting more and more popular, and Anime conventions were starting to get more popular, they invited people who were prominent in the industry or contributed things that were a big influence on the industry itself to be guests and talk about things etc.

I was wondering if there was a Johnny's convention (which would be awesome if there was lol) who do you guys think would be invited? I was just curious and was thinking about it the other day... ;; I think that Becky from [ profile] taijiprojectsub would definitely be invited, but.. I dunno who else What do you guys think?

heart1 Okay that's it for the long ass entry. I think I will give internet cookies to anyone who actually read the entire thing

Hello bbs

eggchan: (K-Pop//SHINee - AMIGO~//gif)
Hello there bbs rice

I've been trying to sign up for this LJ messenger thing for 4 days and every time I try it just e-mails me and tells me there was an error ._.;; Frustrating. Any of you getting it to work? (Or maybe I'm the only one who has tried)

Not a whole lot has been going on with my life lately, mostly just working.. doing translating (slowly), exercising, spending time with Lotion, and... playing a little WoW here and there. thumbsup

It's been... peaceful here, I suppose :D

Anyway, I wanted to ask those of you who are interested in beauty/skin cosmetics some advice lightbulb

I take pretty good care of my skin, and usually have no issues... not a whole lot of pimples/zits or redness, but I think my last semester of school kind of killed my face and the residual effects are still there. I've got greasy LOOKING bumps on my nose/near my nose, from what I understand that's normally where that kind of thing occurs... but I've been trying to get rid of it for the past 3 months with no avail. I usually use the Clearasil Daily Face Cleansing Wash and after a while and seeing no results in my problem area I went out and tried a Clean & Clear morning scrub (with no acne treatment stuff in it, just supposed to make your skin smooth).

I used it as directed, but saw no results, so I went out and got an exfoliant.. St. Ive's Apricot Scrub, and used that as directed, gently. This one had some acne treatment in it, which I've never used before.

Well, it only seemed to make my problem areas worse and give me MORE pimples and redness... ugh. So I started using the Clean & Clear again instead, and that seemed to make it worse again. Now I'm back to just the Clearasil daily face wash, but still no changes!!

What do you guys think I should do?? I can't seem to get rid of this stupid stuff, and I just want it to go away teardrop I don't use foundation or make up or anything in the area that is having issues.. if I wear any make up it's just a little eye make up.

littlediamond Secondly I realize that I haven't really been posting my Japanese journals here as much as I used to and I'd like to remedy that flower

Japanese Journal about making fun of Arashi lol )

tv And this week's vlog! hehehehe

Oh, exciting news, though... I was invited to the YouTube Partnership program!! hehehehepeacenosign *THIS IS SO COOL~*

eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - Ohno Eyepatch (Pirate Te)

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 - Sakuraiba makes me ♥)
Oopsies I forgot and I don't feel like updating LJ atm, soooo.. this is all you get. YEAY. btw my fun week has been going down the shitter. I love when I get excited for things because they always fall apart. thumbsup

eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - Ohno is special)
So, here I am again with more translations. I enjoy these quick ones

Please DO NOT take this out of my journal without my permission
My notes are in italic
Original Japanese: anj

First up is Matsujun )

Group Chat about the album )

And just to save space and the hassle of posting again, here is this week's vlog ^^

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 - Jun 縞)
It's a VLOG!

tegoshidesu Yeah, sorry that's all I've got for todaysweat
eggchan: (K-Drama//Gong Yoo)
art 1) I've got art

Full size here~

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

pencil 2) I've got translations! Of Jun's little twitter-like thing. I saw the original Japanese and thought I'd have a go.. so enjoy if you'd like!

The inside of the forest is extremely quiet )

tv 3) This week's vlog, yo!

eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - Jun Jacket)
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
eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - Aimiya ♥)
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.
eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - Jun)

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
eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - Nino プリクラ・ポーズ)
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//Otsuka Ai - *gasp*)
Sorry, I just wanted to post this week's vlog.

enjoy 8D

the damn preview picture refuses to change arrgghh
eggchan: (J-Pop//Arashi - Together as one)
Arrrrgghh.. So I was going to make a post to [ profile] spazzcrack with some gifs to the Saigo no Yakusoku extras.. it was going awesome and I had all the videos ready to go and gif... I made like 20 gifs, and then...

they were all messed up >_<;; nothing I can do to fix them... *sigh* (that isn't nearly as bad as the mistake I made on my proj 5x10 translations.. I feel like such a dumbass, seriously ARUGHHHH today was just egg-fucks-up day I think)

So for now, you guys can deal with 2 of my messed up gifs. They were 2 of the most 印象に残っているシーン to me... the whole thing was just chock full of Ohmiya.. seriously. The chin grabbing.. wtf?! Too cute. It was really great to see them behind the scenes again..

Seriously why does Arashi sneezing on each other amuse me so much??

Just look at those lines on the gifs!! Augh pisses me off so much..

Okay seriously did you look at the water boy's face. He looks like he wants to kill himself. He's the guy who's job is to hold the water bottle of Matsujun's, and open the bottle when he wants to drink, stand there while he drinks, and then take the bottle back and close it up again like a good little boy

Jun is such a mega-diva in that clip. It really made me think that.. sorry to Jun fans. But I do think that he probably does have a bit of a diva complex. I mean -- you would too if you were told that you are an "elite" person from the tender age of 12.

then I watched the Arashi commentary part... and.. Ohno kept shifting around in his chair, and scooting his butt around. It was really distracting and then suddenly I saw this:

What, you don't see it..? Well let me help you out here.

...but don't say I didn't warn you )

opps the other reason I was going to post this was to put up this week's vlog, too...

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

I have not posted a proper entry in... who knows how long ;; life has thrown a million things lately, and I really do want to write an entry with some actual substance to it, but... yeah. Things have kind of exploded... and I don't even have time to do one now I'm mostly posting so I can put up this week's vlog.

Anywhoodles... I hope to have a proper entry SOON. And! My copy of Monster came in the mail on Monday. Yaaaayy~ 8DDD

Lookie~ I look like kind of a creeper in this pic... oh well

...and now for the vlog~
