[Talk] AAA 2008

4 Farted
In my quest to reclaim my love for Arashi, I re-watched some things. The thing in this case would be AAA 2008 at the Kokuritsu Stadium.
PhotobucketPhotobucket
I've given it some thought. Arashi members are like different types of kids you have in high school. There's the gay diva, the jock, the freaky one, the geek and the class clown (who is pretty and everyone wants to violate him. I am pretty sure I am not speaking for myself alone.) Now, if you throw in a wannabe goth, then they each represent one of the categories of kids in school.
PhotobucketPhotobucket
Someone tell Nino he moves funny. He was wearing a bling-ed bangle. That just makes him gayer than ever. And he has the unmatched talent of making every dance step, every move seem gay. You know the way he stands during Mannequin Five? One day, I'll take a screencap of all the ways he stood. It'll be fun. xDDD The guy's a total geek too, and how a geek got to be in a boyband sure beats me.
PhotobucketPhotobucket
They should tell Sho that announcing to the entire crowd that he wants to make love from Monday to Sunday is not a good idea. And parents in Japan allow their kids to listen to their songs? Arashi sneak in obscenities about their orgy sex life in their songs. He looks yummy during the tour. That hair suits him. Sho, one word, manbangs. Get it, always, cos they make you look so good.
PhotobucketPhotobucket
I don't like the Maou hair. It makes him look old. He looks like a walking corpse during the Maou era. I remembered that Ohno used to be more entertaining. Remember G no Arashi? Damn it was their best show. Wait, or was it D no Arashi? Those were good times. Everyone was immature. Immaturity makes a good show.
PhotobucketPhotobucket
Aiba... damn he knows how to shake his ass. And he gives such an adorable vibe, I suspect he farts rainbows and shits mint ice cream with chocolate sprinkles. You'll never know. And his solo song is... XDDDDDDDDDDD cute. Never thought there would be a day where I describe a grown man as cute, but that is exactly what Aiba Masaki is. He's so endearing, I cannot even diss him about his voice. And we all know that voice is far from perfect, but it makes Aiba, Aiba.
PhotobucketPhotobucket
I hate to say it, but it hit me. None of them can sing. Gasp, how dare I insult Ohno, the best singer in Johnny's Junior at that time? Well, no, seriously, they can sing. You see why recently, they sang all the verses in pairs or as a trio? The chorus, of course, is a group effort. That's cos THEY CAN'T SING. Do I sound like I am irritated? I am slightly constipated right now. Too much details? It is fine, you don't know me anyway. xD
PhotobucketPhotobucket
I think I have arrived at MatsuJun, haven't I? Despite him making me super turned on by his brains in that NEP League quiz show, I can't help getting annoyed cos he has that "Look, I am so cool, I am so smart, I have to ask for something cool, like a wine cellar as a prize on TFP2 cos I am cool and sophisticated. I don't not interact with you mere mortals." vibe. That's a hell of a long name for a vibe eh.
PhotobucketPhotobucket
Let it be known that I only watch the solo performances of Aiba, Nino and I used to watch Ohno's until very recently. I can't stand watching Jun do his solo because they are usually overdone, very uncool (though he clearly thinks otherwise) and his fake rocker thing is not working. Boyband femmies don't do rock well, dear.
PhotobucketPhotobucket
Sho's are rather boring. Not that I ever gave it a chance. It took me just five seconds to decide if I were to waste time watching the performance. Nino's are always very nice, but I didn't like the "Himitsu" performance during the AAA 2006 tour. Apart from that, it was cool. "Kako" and "Niji" were more than good, they were brilliant. Gay geek can work the soulful singing thing, though his voice was anything but impressive, we can let that one go. Aiba's are adorable. Always adorable. He pulls off freaky fluffy pastel gay fashion with surprising manliness. Despite the horribly gay outfits, all I can see is a man who wrestles big felines.
PhotobucketPhotobucket
I watched Ohno's solo this time. The midget can move y'all. That outfit is not flattering though. I have developed hate for all outfits glossy. You'll never catch me in one. Ever. If in the future, many, many decades from now, someone decides to bury me in one, I'll rise from the dead and drag em with me. You watch. I have an idea of why they had to raise the part of the stage where Ohno was doing the chair dance, but I hate to make fun of midgets. Although I already did by calling him a... uh...
PhotobucketPhotobucket
It always amazes me, how Nino could move his fingers on the piano keys fast enough to keep up with the pace of songs. I mean, he has small hands. You know what they say about men with small hands? What? They don't look very graceful while playing the piano. That's what I was thinking. Totally. Nothing else. Like, what? People would think that I was implying about his thingie being the size of his hands, but I so totally wasn't. O_O
PhotobucketPhotobucket
OMG Jun just graduated from being the worst singer of the group. Gave the title to Sho. Some, of course, might argue that it is Aiba, but as I said before, I like that nasally, squeaky voice of his. Basically, for today, Aiba can do no wrong. Disagree and I'll throw a shoe at you.

Nino bites.
PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket
You think I am kidding. Did you see how he barked at Sho about the soyokaze thing? If Sho persisted, Nino would lunge at Sho and bite his ears off. That's one evil gay midget.
PhotobucketPhotobucket
That video they played before "Re(mark)able". Do you think Jun put that middle finger into his mouth cos he thinks its cool, or he's implying that he loves (giving) blowjobs? That's dirrrty, what he did. Rings have lots of bacteria on them. Yeesh. His hips are amazing though. xD
PhotobucketPhotobucket
Nino was the only one who didn't slide around towards the end when the rain was pretty heavy. Wet blanket. Probably thought it was filthy. Nino's such a girl. xD
PhotobucketPhotobucket
And that is a conclusion I got from watching AAA 2008. Aiba can do no wrong, Jun's dirty, Nino's the gayest midget that ever gayed, Sho likes sex, a lot and Ohno looks like a squid barbecued whole.
PhotobucketPhotobucket
And I spent so much time watching this, I think I am going to be late tomorrow. See if I care. Uh... if anyone is reading this, I am not her. =D

[Talk] Gackt Might Be The Devil Himself

1 Farted
Photobucket

Not only is he immortal, having lived centuries. (Don't remind me that he recently admitted his age, that's like telling kids that Santa's actually their dad in a fatsuit... or... their fat dad. Whatever. Not good.) he eats people now. That's savvy.

Ah I miss watching Gackt talk about his crotch and sex life. Dude's probably got a thingie that has the same diameter as my arm, since he's got the confidence to flash it around.

Photobucket

Damn I am freaked out by him. If you stare long enough, you'll get goosebumps. I sure did. Dude's a freak.

I need to know what products he uses. Cos I once aspired to be so fair, it hurts to look at me when I am under the sun. Gackt's exactly that.

He used to be my Arashi when I was... 16? 17? Thereabouts. I'd watch Moonchild three times a day. You think I am kidding, don't you? I sure did. I could recite the lines before the devil himself uttered them. Good times, good times.

Why can't I like cool people? Like... I don't know... Jay-Z or something. See, my all things Japanese started with Gackt, a wannabe vampire whom I suspect to be Satan himself, then there's Queen (OMG Freddie Mercury and his wifebeater. I wanted to dig my eyes out. Uh... bless his soul. God knows I love the band)... there's that orgy called Arashi which I have dedicated too many hours of my life to.

My friend recently got in to Johnny's Jimusho. I warned her and she got in anyway. Told her it is like falling from the top of Taipei 101, then a hole opened up and hell swallowed you up. You can't get out.

Oh yeah, this is my 'review' of Mr. Brain, which disappointed me. I wanted to punch Kamenashi in there. I seriously wanted to punch him and throw him to Gackt and have him eaten. Kame looks like an alligator. Have I said that before? Well I haven't said it enough times.

There's my 'review' some Gackt reminiscing, some ranting and dissing.

[Drama] Jin

Fall 2009

Starring: Osawa Takao, Nakatani Miki, Ayase Haruka, Koide Keisuke, Takeda Tetsuya, Kohinata Fumiyo, Uchino Masaaki, Kiritani Kenta...
Photobucket
Minakata Jin, a doctor (neuro surgeon perhaps?) who has lost confidence in himself after he failed to safely remove a tumor from his fiancee's brain, found himself living in a state of despair since. His fiancee, Tomonaga Miki has been in a vegetative state since the surgery and Jin has avoided surgeries with the slightest bit of risk ever since.
PhotobucketPhotobucket
One day, a patient who has been attacked on the face and is currently unrecognizable has been sent to the hospital. Jin performed a surgery on the man and removed what seemed like a fetus from the man's head.
PhotobucketPhotobucket
When the mysterious man woke up, he attempted to escape (to an unknown place) with the fetus which was drenched in formalin, and some medical equipments. As the man attempted to jump from the building to return to a different world (his words, not mine) Jin, tried to stop the heavily injured man but fell from the stairs instead.
PhotobucketPhotobucket
The next time Jin woke up, he found himself lying in a deserted forest with his medical equipments. Suddenly, a few men, clad in samurai outfit were fighting with their katanas. He thought it was a filming of some period drama until a man was cut in the head. The injured man is Tachibana Kyotaro.
PhotobucketPhotobucket
It dawned on Jin that he traveled back in time to ancient Edo (modern day Tokyo). He eventually saved the life of Kyotaro and many others. While doing that, he was taken in by the Tachibana family, earned the trust of Kyotaro's mother Sakae and also the affection of Kyotaro's sister, Saki.
PhotobucketPhotobucket
Jin then helped the country overcome the attack of the Cholera disease and was offered a teaching position at the Western Medicine Office. As Jin began to adapt to life in the Edo period, Sakamoto Ryoma, whom he got acquainted earlier on, brought him to Yoshiwara, which was THE red-light district to go to in Edo.
PhotobucketPhotobucket
In Yoshiwara, Jin laid his eyes on Nokaze, a high ranking courtesan who looks like a carbon copy of Miki. Struggling with the doubts of the people of that period about his medical methods and his wish to return to modern day Tokyo, Jin attempts to make his way day by day... or something like that.

*****

I cannot stop watching this drama. It is present tense because I am still watching it. It is so good, I sat and watched 6 episodes of it without stopping except to pee and to drink. (I am on a diet... the thighs... the thighs are unsightly.) Anyway, this is the best I've seen in a while.

Firstly, I love period dramas. I love the costumes, I love how much green you get to see in them, I love the way they speak, I love everything about period dramas. Next, I love the cast. There's that annoying guy from "Sekai no Chushin, Ai wo Sakebu" movie! And coincidentally, Ayase Haruka was Aki from the drama version. And they're both in this! There's Takeda Tetsuya! He's that detective dude in "Byakuyakou". He also starred in that legendary drama "101st Marriage Proposal", not to forget, he's Kinpachi-sensei! There's Koide Keisuke! Nakatani Miki too... you get my drift...

I love movies, dramas centralized around the idea of time traveling. Love. This is because you will never know what happens until the end is revealed. This is because of the butterfly effect which was also mentioned in this drama. What happens now might cause repercussions in the future. You'll never know. Say, if I called the ambulance upon seeing a pregnant woman about to deliver, I might be saving... the ancestor of... uh... Darth Vader?

I love the idea that there's a possibility of traveling through time and be there to witness it when big things happened in the past. When Shih Huang Ti unified China, when Marie Antoinette was beheaded by the guillotine, when the Nanking massacre happened. Moments in history which, centuries later, will still be quoted as they are now. In this drama, it was the Bakumatsu. What Tokugawa Ieyasu started was put to an end. And Jin was there to see it. Cool eh?

Why the hell did they show the fetus during the 'opening' of each episode? Seriously, the fetus is scary. The freak factor in dramas and I have a love-hate relationship. Suspense and I, too, have a love-hate relationship. Mostly one-sided, but still...

I have to go finish it before I yakk. And Sakamoto Ryoma in this drama is total love. Hilarious, honorable, loyal. Makes me want to watch Ryomaden. But I really dislike Fukuyama Masaharu. It is something about the mouth. The character Ogata-sensei makes me T_______T. OMG so great and noble. I would have bawled in that scene where Jin was visiting him after finding out how much he did for him. I would have, had I not been thinking about how I have to work tomorrow. Sigh. OMG the end of Episode 07 was a tear jerking moment. OMG why?

It's a drama about humanity, love and sacrifice. You know, all that stuff you've heard before.

Now, there's that ending which I am so unhappy about...

I followed the drama for about 11 hours, take or give. I deserve a definite, clear ending, don't I? What is with that vague shit that they gave me? Seriously, what's with the trend nowadays? I want clear endings, who ends up with whom, who gets rich, how will they die, something definite. This ending is crap. What the fuck? And it isn't even good vague, it is bad vague. So the guy travels back to the future and there's Miki? What about Saki? Huh? I was rooting for her like crazy! Shit. I am unhappy. Screw this, was going to give it a 4.9. I'm giving it a big fat pile of shit now. Damn. Okay, I am cool, it is cool. Cool. Isn't it clear that there's a gap between the previous paragraph and this ending comment? I just finished watching and am so not pleased right now. So unfair, really. What about Saki? I tend to get too involved with dramas. You think? =D

So, like, what is up with the freaky fetus and the man who was injured? Like, seriously, a good drama will explain on those stuff. Or did I miss it? I tend to space off sometimes. So... no explanations? Sigh, the ending, the ending needs some editing. What a crappy ending for such a nice drama.
Photobucket
Reitings: 4.5/5 (Really crappy ending ruined it. No explanations on what seemed earlier on to be the key points to the drama. What will there be a second season? I hate second seasons.)
