Note: not to be taken seriously =w=

After Clear released his album, people around him seemed to be extra aggressive in winning his hand in marriage getting close to him/getting his attention :3.

• Dasoku
- After Dasoku's mini photoshoot with Clear's poster (taken by Gero), he seems to not care about Clear's album release and all that.
- But actually, as Clear said in his namahousou, he is actually playing FFXIV with Clear (and Asamaru). Clear said that he cannot play FF without Asamaru as a guide and if Asamaru is online, then most probably Dasoku is and he'll be happy then :3.
- Of course there is also that questionable Dearest CM where Dasoku spouts off suspicious nonsense like, "If I held on to your hand that time, will our future change?"
- Clear's reaction to Dasoku's CM was, "Dasoku-san is really interesting, isn't he? Now on sale LOLOL."
- After that, [personal profile] crimsonfire3 said that Dasoku kind of admitted something during his zombie game marathon with Valshe (namahousou), which didn't have timeshift and was very annoying XD.

Valshe: Who do like more, me or Moka?
Dasoku: (missed answer)
Valshe: Do you like Clear?
Dasoku: Yes.
Valshe: /spazz?!?!?!
Dasoku: ...as a friend.


PS: Of course, Dasoku had to add more to the fire by posting a photo of him wearing shirt with a questionable design :D

• Vivienne
- Apparently, Vivienne's mom is a huge Clear fan even if she is not aware of it. She shared a conversation with her mom with Clear this afternoon. Clear wondered if the image of him stuck in Vivi's mom's head is his voice in Cendrillon.

Vivienne: Clear-kun released his album, you know!
Mom: Clear?
Vivienne: The prince! Prince!
Mom: Oh! Really? I want to listen to the album. Maybe I should buy it later when I go out!


And Vivienne's mom bought the CD, even texting Vivienne asking for the title of Clear's CD XD;. How domestic.


• Jack
- How random, since they never talk at all, but apparently they exchange kisses in twitter XD.


• Wotamin
- Wotamin and Clear rarely talk nowadays aside from Twitter and sometimes in Clear's namahousou where she has a backstage pass, but one fine day, this package arrived at Minmin's doorstep. She tweeted about how happy she is that it came and we would have all gone back to our boring lives if Clear hadn't replied with, "I am so glad it arrived safely!" And Wotamin replied with, "Thank you so much! I'm listening to them right now!" /COUGH. I see someone tried hard to make someone listen to his CDs :3.
- Of course there's also their random Twitter flirtings (which people cut into, I'm looking at you, Nem /shot) and one point where Wotamin forbade people from replying to her with "ggrks" and clear replied with the link to their ggrks cover.


• Nero
- Nero is an enigma to me, seriously. It's probably because his namahousou voice and face look very serious that...IDK. Anyway, he's also in the Dearest CM where he had a very RL-like comment which includes stuff about them being neighbors, reminiscing their past ("the sight, smell, sound of my heart at that time~") and of course the now infamous "Kono album, peropero shitai yo!" (This album, I want to lick it).
- Clear's reaction to Nero's CM were, "Nero's speaking voice here makes me feel weird LOL" and "Why are you speaking this way?" and "You don't lick it, oi". (He even imitated Nero's peropero thingy.) And he ended with, "Too bad he's an ikemen, right?"
- And then this afternoon, Nero uploaded a rather wonderful version of Shinpakusuu 0822 which Clear RT'd with "I've liked you since junior high, please marr(ry...) to which fans replied with tons of things like, "Please recite this in Nicoraji" and "I have fixed the wedding hall!" and "Did you get his second button when you graduated?!"
- After a bit, Nero replied to the tweet with "We shall start by peropero-ing" to which Clear said, "Don't get carried away!" /cough
- A bit of update in Clear's nama at the moment, was his reaction to his own tweet about asking Nero to get married, "Eh, I won't marry...because I can't right? I want to marry a girl." <-- ;_____;

PS: Clear also posted a locked entry in his ameblo, which is just an embed of Nero's Shinpakusuu and the comment, "This singing voice, I want to lick it" ^^;

On a more serious note, Clear is thinking of new stuff to include with is CD/releases aside from the super cute button stickers which were released with "Colors". He was considering phone straps, "clear" files and eyeglass wipers, calendars, etc. I would not say no to a life-size cardboard statue, to be honest.

Okay, I will end this before I include more people into the list like Asamaru and Marasy and other people LOL.

Another utaite-related post, so non-fans, you can be relieved now :).

This is in relation to my post in ofurotaimu regarding Kettaro, a girl and a radio show scandal. I cannot include this translation in the community post because it's very sensitive and impolite to Kettaro. It might cause a stir in the comm, too, so I'm keeping this here.

I didn't write this because I think it's fun and interesting. I wrote this because I'm thoroughly disturbed by the issue and I need an outlet to let my opinions out. Since I don't want to keep explaining what happened, why disturbed, etc., I've included notes taken from the namahousou in question. To be honest, I am more disturbed with the way the issue was handled than the issue itself. I have my own opinions, which I will post after my summary. This post is locked, but not filtered and I trust that everyone will keep this within the confines of my DW/LJ. I personally think the issue was a breach of Kettaro's privacy and I do not wish to entertain public discussions about it. This post is just to let things off my chest as I've been really bothered by this this morning.

WARNINGS: The script under the cut is very TMI and graphic. I toned down the language because I can't take writing them but still, the thought is there. I think I want to strangle this girl after listening to the interview for Kettaro's sake, but anyway...If you are a Kettaro fan and you do not want to meddle in his private affairs, please skip this.

...I should include a do not read under 18 warning or something, I think..............

Kettaro-Mucchi incident, more detailed version )

HAH. I've said all. I will forget about this then and continue with my life. I'm very, very sorry to anyone who I might have offended with this post. I was facepalming all the time I was writing this although I admit I laughed a little at the pink lighting (sorry ;_;. it's just that. PINK FFFF). I hope this post would be of help to people wanting to know about the issue in detail, though. It's not very pleasant to read it but it'll give you a lesson in life: do not pick up weird obsessive girls from mixi Be careful when meeting people from the Internet for the first time, no matter how close you are.

I only listened to 1/2 of the show, but there were a lot of interesting stuff in it already that I managed to write enough for an entry XD;. This live has a lot of revelations, from clewota's weird relationship, to clear's family background, to how clear reacts when he sees himself in a poster, to the big "what do dasoku and clear do inside the soundproofed room?" question.

The last part was a joke, but you know that already :D.

A small note to everyone in OPENID: I was a bit confused with circle/f-list management here in DW so it took me a while to give access to some people, especially those with openid ^^;.

This is a repost from my LJ, basically stalking a chronology of what happened during Asamakku's first meetup on March 22, 2010 as well as quotes from Choucho's live on the same day. Please do not repost any of the translations or the entirety of the post, thanks!

for LJ friends, the original post is here

epic under the cut )

Anyway, enough of my heartbreak about Asamakku's live XD;. I watched Choucho's live last night, one of the rare lives she has (or was it the first?). She's so cute! I screencapped the live but I forgot the pictures at home ahahahah. I'll post them when I do my Nicosinger faces post.

I am also not the only one trolling listening in to Choucho, though. There's Tourai, Anima, etc. Then there's this gem...


Choucho: *reading comments* "Choucho, ILU - tou" ...Are you Tourai-san?
Choucho: Are you the real Tourai-san? If you are, please sing :|*
Tourai (in comments): Are you the real Choucho?
Choucho: You should be able to guess from my voice!

* This is in reference to that time Asamaru (or Choucho or someone from Asamakku) met Tourai for the first time and asked him to sing to prove that he's Tourai XD;.

And then, Choucho said she had planned to record an acoustic version of four songs but she'll only upload one. She asked people which it would be and doriko's Yuuhizaka won /o/ . I voted for it hahaha XD;. After a while, she asked what she should sing next.


Choucho: Now, what should I try singing next?
Tourai (comments): SING RIP=RELEASE! I WANT RIP=RELEASE!
Choucho: Ehhh why so forceful?




Okay, report done XD;. It was a really tiring day, especially since I have to go back and forth listening to lives, listening to utattemita ranking and writing posts ^^;. I'm tired and sleepy now but all is well~~.

This is a partial translation of the recent public Nicoraji (August 20, 2010) with Clear, Dasoku, Pokota, Kettaro, Miichan, Saiya, Rapbeat, Noaru, Ayumi, etc. These are just quotes translated from the show. Also, I haven't translated Miichan's, Kettaro's, etc. part because I am biased lazy like that. ^^;

GAH WHAT ELSE. I'm too braindead with the live sooooo ♥ ♥ ♥. I can't wait to see them sing in the concert! FFFFF I hope Dasoclear sings "magnet" ufufufuf /shot.

God, it's been three days and I'm still on a high. WTF.

I was supposed to capture the recent Nicoraji with clear kissing Pokota, etc. but I got sidetracked by Asamakku's namahousou (they were playing Starry Sky in winter, with Meeko, Asamaru, Jack and Tourai providing the voice overs, LOL Tourai as Tsubasa /shot) so I wasn't able to do it. I was supposed to upload something for [community profile] ofurotaimu too but orz. Tomorrow, I promise ^^;.

Anyway, here are some namahousou I listened to sometime around September-October 2009. I posted the translations in plurk but not in my LJ/journals so I'm putting them here in case people are interested. Note that there will be no dl links (IDK how to capture streams then) and the quotes are sporadic, basically what just caught my interest. Also, a little Tolear (Tourai x Clear) bias ^^. (Not warning you about clear bias since it's a given already).

Okay the end for now. LOL. I can't believe I'm digging up namahousou this far ffffff. I'll be off to eat Japanese stuff the whole day tomorrow so I'll see you guys in the evening! XD. I promise to at least say something about Nicoraji ASAP, especially since all the guests showed their faces ♥. People should've seen me flail at work when they did XD, especially clear. It makes me very happy to finally put a face on a voice I like XD. Well, rumors of him not being an ikemen might be true or something, but he gives off a "nice, cheerful person" aura eeeee so lovashalhasf stop flailing, nikki ♥ ♥. I still blame him for my lack of productivity that day, though. And he should've just kissed Dasoku, not Pokota fffff.

I have the worst listening skills in the world, but okay. I'm trying to restart translations of radio shows from the past (like...a year ago lol). I realize I have a lot (clewota radio, kurikku radio, dasoclewotabaru radio, and more ;_;). I don't know where to start LOL. I wonder if I should make a poll. Anyway, I'll start with editing those I already posted in the old LJ before and try to make them as complete as possible. Jack and Clear's shows are probably the most interesting because of the BL serifu /shotttt

Speaking of clear, it's very easy to translate his radio shows LOL. They go in the same path, like this:

- first fifteen minutes: "Can you hear me? Can you hear the music? Ah! Ah! Ah! /mic test Can you hear me now? Eh? No? I wonder what's wrong..." (insert lol-ing a lot)
- next five minutes: "Hey guys, I bought a new mic! And new speakers! And and and I can't find my camera /overturns room in search of the camera" ... "Oh...I can't install it ;_;."
- next five minutes: "I looove (food name). I'm eating (food name). A while ago, I bought (food name). Then I cooked this (food).
- next four minutes: "I don't have a girl friend. No, Dasoku and I aren't chuchu-ing. Eh? Wotamin is in the comments? LOL. Maybe if I have a girlfriend I can (insert random fantasy here). Oh yeah this is my life story, you know one time my younger sister and my mom..../rambles
- final minute: Oh yeah I have an album and I forgot to promote it so I will do it nauu~ /stream gets cut off.

Uh-huh, basically it's like that. Very predictable XD;.

I watched the Expendables a few days ago and it was ~*~amazing~*~. Not, "wonderful story amazing", but more of "no story but still amazing". Normally I "meh" at films that do not have concrete storyline but in this film, you're too busy staring at the action to mind the story. It's like your typical 90's action film: simple story without much explanation with tons of ass-kicking. The action sequences are so fast and there are tons of explosions. So much loveeee. I love Jet Li ;_;. I'm so glad he had a martial arts sequence because I'm so not used to seeing him holding big guns LOL. And to be fair, I understood the movie because Stallone spoke more audibly now XDD /shot.

I want to watch it agaaaaain.

Speaking of watching, I tried out watching from Nico Nico channels. T-chan and I watched Kuroshitsuji II episode 1. It was 50x funnier because of the people's comments. The opinions on Alois are severely bipolar. Some loves his shota character so much while some hate him enough they wish him dead (btw, I love him and his boots XD). I think I/we spent a long time reading the comments instead of watching. LOL-ing at the emoticons.

So great :D. Too bad the rest aren't free. But oh well XD. I should watch Sengoku Basara II there next~.

Anyway, I've been feeling unwell again. Seriously, this seems to be an unlucky year for me with respect to my health and emotions ^^;. I've been feeling dizzy since this morning. Not pregnant, unless someone somehow managed to impregnate me with their voice. I think it's because I've been sleeping for only a few hours these past few days. There'll be a holiday soon so I hope I can take a break then :3.

Dropping by to say I'm alive and kicking, even if my journals are gathering dust. I assure you I'm just busy and I haven't packed up and ran away from the Interwebs, although if you're in twitter or [community profile] ofurotaimu, I don't need to assure you 8D.

I've been terribly busy with work (too much writing = death) and it's the flu season here, too. June-July is really not for me. And then the SP Vocaloid rankings were released to I'm spending my time going through all the lists there (I listen to all the songs...at least in the Kagamine, GUMI, KAITO and Luka rankings). So uh...until I finish with the last one there, I won't be free :(. Don't worry, I'll do it tonight LOLOL.

Uh...things to update about, I'm going to list them here:
- Nero x Limone-sensei nicoraji report
- Kogeinu's world domination plan
- Clear's live (very little though)
- Summer anime (would you believe I haven't watched a single one?! GOD)
- more I forgot

Mmmm...what else? Brain empty at the moment, although I know I had a long to-do list. Anyway, I mostly update [community profile] ofurotaimu now of manly utattemita/vocaloid updates so just head over there if you need me ^^;.

the rest here )



I initially thought of Ever After and Finding Nemo as my favorite movie, but then I decided to choose this one. Ashley Judd and Tommy Lee Jones star in this film. Ashley Judd is one of my favorite actresses, too.

The story goes this way (AFAIR): Ashley Judd's character is happy with her famous husband and little son. However one night on a yacht, she woke up to find her husband gone and her dress and the cabin was bloody. Because of lack of evidence as well as lack of reports on what happened to her husband, she was imprisoned for murder. In prison, her only contact outside was their "secretary" who takes care of her son for her. On one scene, she called up her son and discovered that her husband is still alive and in hiding. She figured out that he just wanted her out of the way as he goes into a relationship with the secretary and taking the son with them.

She almost lost hope, but someone in prison told her of "double jeopardy", meaning you cannot be tried for the same trial twice. Since she had been sentenced for her husband's murder, she cannot be imprisoned again if she does the same thing. Hence, she decided to prepare herself so that when she gets out of prison, she will take her son and exact revenge on her husband and kill him.

Tommy Lee Jones here is the parole office responsible of keeping Ashley in check and he kept chasing her around as she searches for her husband. He acted like a villain at first, but upon knowing Ashley's intentions, he decided to help her exact revenge (in a way).

I am very fond of Cinderella stories, something I got from my mom. I like stories of people who were oppressed and in the end found redemption. But I like films which tell stories of how these oppressed people get back to their oppressors more. I don't believe in absolute forgiveness, and watching villains (real villains, not misunderstood ones) get away unscathed annoys me. This movie makes me remember that life is not always a movie with a happy ending wherein everyone was happy and forgiven. There's always someone who needs to pay. Aside from that, Ashley Judd's character here is very resourceful and brave, but in reality simply portrays what all mothers can do for the sake of their children. (All she wanted was to get her son back) It's a rare film with a female, albeit a supposedly normal mom, in the main role instead of a sexy sidekick.



Day 2 done aaaaah! Thank you, by the way, to everyone who commented in the anon meme @ LJ. I really appreciate each word you have sent me ♥. Japanese classes tomorrow. I think I will die of fright. Konnichiwa. Okane ga nai. Toire wa doko desu ka. /shot

01. YOUR FAVORITE SONG
the rest here )



It's very hard to choose a favorite song, you know :(. Favorite in what terms? for forever or for just this moment? Anyway, I went with what first came to mind when I thought of it LOL.

Ishidatami no Akeki Akuma by Sound Horizon, from the album "Seisen no Iberia" is ONE of my favorite songs. It's what I chose because it is less known and needs to be pimped and it is also one of those songs I never skip in my player. It is also one of those songs I make sure I sing when I go to karaoke :D.

The song revolves around a story about the holy war in Iberia. Layla is of mixed race, so she cannot choose a side to ally with during the war. She accidentally gets injured and escapes into a dungeon where the demon Shaytan was imprisoned. She frees him and in exchange for her aid, Shaytan pledges loyalty to her, to do as she bids, and grants her immortality so they will be with each other forever. He asks her to make a wish. She wishes for the war to end, and to help her, Shaytan acted as the bad guy so the warring sides will join forces to defeat him.

This song has been covered a lot of times in the utattemita category. But the best cover for me so far is Jack and Choucho's feat. Jigiru.

Speaking of utattemita, sexy being Clear's "childhood friend" nero covered one of my favorite GUMI songs ever: Just a Game. Hnnnghhh. Not to mention Dasoku covered it, too...kind of. PFFFTTT. DYING.

...I want to talk more about more covers, like vip-tenchou's brain breaking "Eh? Aa, Sou" cover but gah. Later.

[personal profile] sabriel linked me to an interesting post about it here. Relinking here because even though I am not an Avatar fan, my sister is a huge supporter and we often had dinner discussions about the upcoming movies casting.

My sister cannot accept the fact that the cast was changed in terms of race/color. She even complains that Dev Patel was cast in the wrong role because Zuko does not appear to be of Indian descent (TBH, he looks more Chinese to me than anything). I don't watch the show, but I believe that if you want to make a movie out of a story (be it a book, TV series, etc.), then you should get your details right. Why make a big movie about a show involving Asian culture if you do not want to cast Asians themselves? It should be common sense, right, but we all know how the industry works. I also think it's a nod of respect to the original show if the movie managed to get the whole thing right. Otherwise, isn't that just some kind of slap to the face?

It might not be a big deal to some, but I have quite a history of complaining about casting in movies (I complain a lot LOL, Percy Jackson for instance -- let's not go there.). Getting characters right is one of the things I look for films. I think the reason why books have all these overly long descriptions of people and their outfits, the reason why TV shows (animated especially) has these detailed shots of characters showing various facial expressions and reactions, and the reason why there are illustrations in books and detailed artwork in manga/game guides is because the makers want the audience to "visualize" the characters properly and accurately so they can follow the flow of the story well. If the people cast to play the characters aren't even near the descriptions of the original ones, no matter how much makeup they put on, then it would be pointless.



...I want to say something about new The Karate Kid, too and why the martial arts in the movie is Kung-fu, not karate. But I'll save that another day (someone told me they're related arts anyway, so what's the big deal :x). /bothered

My Twitter has recently been a good learning source for me. Since most of the people I stalk follow do not speak English, I am forced to find out ways to reply to them in less idiotic Japanese. The Japanese producers and utaite are really polite and nice even if you tell them that you don't speak the language well. The usual Japanese twitter users, though, are more difficult to converse with since they are very tl;dr and they reply to ~everything~ you reply to them until you give up, hence why I like talking to them more XD;. I don't think I have practiced Japanese this much in the past months and they said the best way to practice is to hold conversations in the language. I think I've learned about particles more in these recent months than those times I've read through books XD;.

That said, here are some shortened terms and stuff I picked up in Twitter. Some of these have been used in chatrooms and 2ch for ages, but this is the first time I've actually used them (and understood...mostly). There is only a few right now, since I forgot some but I'll add to it. And no, there won't be any of Nem's "Nem_P enis" and other x-rated stuff pffffft.

むくり - mukuri (var., mkr, むくっ)
- means: awake, sit up
- origin: I think I've seen this term before as a sfx note in manga?
- answer: you should answer with a 'good morning'.

帰宅 - kitaku (var., きたく, ktk)
- means: coming home, has come home, can be used as replacement for 'tadaima'
- origin: it's a legit term although I don't usually see it used outside twitter
- answer: "okaeri nasai" or "welcome home"

oha, oyasu, oka
- means: good morning, good night and welcome home, respectively
- origin: short forms of "ohayou", "oyasumi" and "okaeri nasai"
- how it is used: this is usually to shorten the message when you send thanks to people who bid you good morning/night or welcome home.
(example: おやすありがとう! - Oyasu arigatou! - Thanks for the 'good night'!)

あり - ari (var., ありです/でした - aridesu/deshita)
- means: thank you
- origin: short for "arigatou"
- how it is used: usually it is used to thank people who greet you and mostly in combination with the previous words.
(example: おかありです! - Oka ari desu! - Thanks for the 'okaeri'!)
- answer: none, since it's a reply to a greeting already.

リプ - rip
- means: reply
- origin: short form of リプライ (reply)
- how it is used: usually in combination with the previous two and to thank people who replied to your greetings.
(example: おはリプありでした! - Oha rip ari deshita! - Thank you for the morning greetings!)
- answer: none, since it's a reply to a greeting already.

あざあす - Azaasu
- means: thank you very much
- origin: short form of Arigatou goZAimASU.
- how it is used: standalone, used in replacement of "arigatou gozaimasu" or used in combination with the previous terms.
(example: おはリプあざあす! - Oha rip azaasu! - Thank you very much for the good morning replies!)
- answer: none or "you're welcome" if you are overly talkative xD.

4) Thanks [personal profile] lluvia for Smiley*2 crotch shots. I enjoyed them immensely, especially clear's with the water bottle antics :D /was kind of stuck staring at the screen for a long time hello ASK.

5) Because I can't seem to finish listening to namahousou AND transcribing "important" parts, I'll just quote D: Because the clear/nero namahousou was too precious. Seriously, clear, talking to yourself? -- okay maybe not but it's amusing to think of XD. Apparently, nero doesn't have a mic in his room so he has to go pillage stay in clear's when doing housou. Uhuhuhu. Have you ever noticed they update twitter at the same time? Okay okay, enough jokes.


(very freely-translated)
Clear: /rambles about reading Dragon Ball (his favorite shounen manga ever), One Piece, etc.
Nero: IDK any of those. I did watch a little of One Piece
Clear: How could you? D:
Nero: Well...
Clear: Now, shoujo manga...did I even read shoujo manga? I don't remember at all. No, I've never read one, I think. My sister though...
Nero: Even Kaikan Phrase?
Clear: OH! KAIKAN PHRASE! How nostalgic! <-- hahaha busted
Nero: Yeah XD;. Our classmates used to have them.
Clear: But isn't that an ero manga already? LOLOL. When I was reading it, I was like "oh, she's doing it with this guy" and after a few pages "oh! she's doing it with another guy!" LOL!
Nero: Hahaha.


I see. Never read shoujo, eh XD? I love how Nero just casually mentioned one thing to bust Clear. Also...I don't remember Kaikan Phrase's story, but did the heroine sleep around that much? O_O;

6) Speaking of friends, it seems that Tourai and Jack met up this Saturday. Jack has the most awesome date spots ever. First, they went to karaoke, then they ate, then they went back to karaoke, sang magnet and called up someone so he can listen in, then played Bomber Man and finally home. Sounds familiar? Yeah, that's exactly what Asamaru and Jack did in their "date", too LOL. When Asamakku sang magnet they called sleeping Tourai up and when Torakku sang it, they called Asamaru up. The only difference is that Asamaru and Jack also sang Ura Omote Lovers, Tourai and Jack sang Cendrillon LOL.

7) Speaking of dates, clear and Dasoku had a date of their own, right? But it was cafe jumping. First they went to a Gundam cafe and then to a maid cafe :D. (and clear was texting nero at that time)

8) [personal profile] southerncross pinged me last Saturday about Erusi's twitter. She apparently watched the recent Tenimyu and was all spazzy-fangirly about it. TENIMYU OMG Fandom crossing D:. So I added her and fangirled lmfao. Apparently, her favorite is Nakagauchi Masataka (Niou from Rikkai for newbs XD). I don't like Rikkai or Masa but ANYWAY she saw Kenn and I was insanely jealous and I told her so. Probably a lot of people were also jealous, so she decided to hold a namahousou with 30 minutes of her screaming and flailing and singing Tenimyu songs and being awed with Masa and Yanagi Koutarou :D. It was so awesome.

9) Because of number 8, I just dug up all my Tenimyu :|. This is bad. Aiba Hiroki all over again, who wants?

10) I want to go home and do Skype karaoke or sing or fiddle with Audacity. IDK why my recordings have different volumes when I convert them to .mp3s. I don't change the settings from recording to mixing to encoding :(. BTW, Skype people, no more Justin Bieber songs please lmfao. I got killed XD. Oh, and apologies to those I killed with my magnet last post OTL. It is a fail!bribe, really.



... I said it was just a short update. Oh well.


PS: How come I always sound high in my posts? :/

I'm so busy, I can't see my table at work anymore. It's like...a big mass of drafts and illustrations and notes and folders :|. I'll be like this until Friday, so I hope I still have time to do utaite and producer day despite the deadline OTL. This is a random update while I take a break from typing articles. Great, I type entries to take a break from typing.

• I finally watched Macross Frontier Galaxy Tour Final Live in Budokan. The costumes made me go WTF especially Nakajima Megumi's, but both May'n and Megu were amazing! To think they haven't sung before such a large crowd before (well, at least for Megu). I'm kind of proud Nakajima Megumi is a half-Filipina :3. And she's GUMI. My bias is showing again. I think my favorite performance would be the Nyan Nyan Service Medley and Megu's Nyan Nyan CM because Nakamura Yuuichi, Miyake Kenta and Kamiya Hiroshi appeared for a while in that segment. Then they did the Nyan Nyan dance. PRICELESS.

• Speaking of GUMI, my 12Stars CD is here in Manila! The only problem is that the EMS people wasn't able to give it to me since I was absent from work yesterday and I had them deliver it here OTL. I hope I won't have to go there to retrieve it, but yaaaay! I've been searching for the CD high and low and was glad to find someone auctioning it off /SOB. The unfortunate fate of people who do not live in Japan.

• I have this huge backlog on namahousou reports. I listen to all of them but there's just too much to say I end up not typing anything up. The only thing I remember is my :| face at Dasoku when he hosted Smiley*2 countdown housou while he's drunk. Poor Kogeinu ;_;. Remind me not to listen to anything Dasoku hosts while he's drunk.

• Usa uploaded this short clip in the Usa Colony community where Tourai whistled a part of magnet. The title is, "Tourai-sensei's Hidden Talent is..." or something like that. It's a video, but the only things you can see are Tourai's lower body (I mean his legs) and his large hands.

• Speaking of Nico Nico Utaite, I'm playing Pokemon Soul Silver~! This is related, I promise. Anyway, I named my main character (girl) Choucho. And her rival (boy) Jack. And Choucho's main pokemon is Keisen (Chikorita). Now I'm thinking of names for all of my pokemon :x. Tourai can be Pidgey -- IDK how that relates to Tourai being a duck but it works, ok? I named Hoothoot Soraru, I don't know why. Then I remembered there's Magnemite and Magneton for Tourai :x. Oh well, I'll just name them Minato XD. Now I'm going through work while thinking of names for pokemon. Great job, Nikki.



Okay, lunch break is over. More work. Later <3.

I wouldn't act all-knowing and pretend that I know a lot about Philippine politics. I don't. I seldom read the newspapers and I rarely catch the news on television. I'm your average Filipino who took a while to understand what PCOS stands for, who doesn't know all the details about the Manny Villar issues, whose knowledge about the 2010 elections is very, very crude. I'm someone voting for someone because I feel like he's the one deserving, not because I read up on all the candidates and tallied their qualifications.

This writeup is not, in any way, for swaying people's decisions. I don't even think this is that convincing. This is only so I can write out my thoughts on the candidate I've chosen, so that I can read it again in the future and see if I still think the same way about him. This post might contain comparisons of my presidential choice to other candidates, so if you love your candidate so much, please don't read my post ^^;. I don't want to enter debates, especially since I know I will lose in terms of knowledge and experience in this field.

I am voting for Gilbert Teodoro Jr. )


I do not need debates, since I won't change my mind on my vote anyway. I also do not want a war of "how much you know about Philippine politics". If you do not like anything from this entry, I'm sorry, but as I said in the warning, this is just for my own reference :). Thanks for reading!

Canna Cinq~ある姫君と人形師の話~ is a drama CD released by amateur group RITORNO. They released it during M3, I think. The cast includes Hanatan as Ellisia, Soraru as Ars, ASK as Lark and Gero as Stray Dog LOLOL. I knew about the CD since last year, but it's the first time I've explored the site and found the sample drama tracks. (lower part of this page)

MY GOD. IT SOUNDS SO AMAZING. It's like listening to Sound Horizon CDs, only with more people. The songs that burst in the middle of conversations aslkhasdhl. Can you tell I'm used to listening to straight dialogue drama CDs? XD Soraru sounds so good as the main guy! ASK as the narrator (plus random singing at the last sample) FFFFFF ♥. Gero sounds good, too!

SOB. I hope there's a way to get the CD even if I'm outside Japan ;;. /wants it so badly.




Ok, end fangirling as I work on my sites. /o/
