I'm not good at coming up with titles.

Why I'm excited for the NEWS album:
- I tend to like album tracks that aren't singles more than the singles. Koi Yake and IZANAIZUKI are two of my favorite NEWS songs.
- A continuation of Chirarizumu/Murarisuto? :D?
- Studio version of share asdklsajaskdla :D I like my N.E.W.S. DVD rip of SNOW EXPRESS better than the one on color, but I want a clear version of share.
- GReeeeN x NEWS collab! I love GReeeeN and weeeek was what introduced me to NEWS :) (though I'd much rather have another weeeek-like hit be a single. even if I can't afford it if it's a double release like pacific & weeeek)
- First NEWS album being released while I'm actively in fandom. idk, it's just exciting.
- I can probably get it as a "farewell eldest daughter, we will miss you ;__;" present from my parents because they're already acting like that.

Why I'm excited for Younha's album:
- omfg her first album since her debut Japanese album in 2005. Her compilation "Teen Songs" or whatever doesn't count.
- I'm hoping that it will have some new songs too, not just all her singles since Touch... but I really wouldn't mind either way :P
- I get irrationally excited about things related to Younha. I was all sad when it was announced that she had swine flu, whereas when I heard that Yamapi and Ryo had it (before Younha did) I was all "meh, they won't die."
- saklfjalkfjjejfal :D

I have enough money from tutoring to buy both... but still, that's so fucking expensive T_T
Buying the Younha one is more about ~supporting the artist~ and I know that I can buy the NEWS one later (je_sales, yahoo auctions, etc), but... I want it.

Unnecessary stuff I want to buy with money I don't have:
- Nishino Kana's second album. Because I have her first one and I do not have enough money to buy all her singles. Girl released singles like crazy after Kimi ni Aitaku Naru Kara!
- Pi's One In a Million LE-B. For the photo. Stupid Pi, why do you have to be so pretty.
- I had a lot more of jpop things I wanted to buy, but really, there's no way I can afford more than 3 albums. I'm okay with waiting for both Kana & Pi because I know I can buy the RE of Kana's later & there'll be copies of Pi's on je_sales months from now too :P

Since this post is focused on music... go listen to this Pokemon + sexual innuendos song if you haven't heard it before. I haven't heard it yet (my parents are home, all my headphones are broken), but I saw the lyrics and damn whoever wrote that is skilled.

I broke my MLIA addiction 3 or 4 months ago, but I still read a few pages when I'm bored. A lot of the posts were about cleverbot.com. I had fun trying to talk to it about JE.

it said that my life was a waste for being a NEWS fan T__T )

Also, my photobucket died D: My beautiful Pin post, ruined! Ah well, I'm just gonna wait for my limit to reset on August 18th. I don't care enough to reupload everything.

NEWS meme time! Because there's nothing better to distract you from homework when your computer's sound isn't working.

15 things about your fandom )

NEWS song meme )

Things I should've done instead of this:
- Hamlet essay
- ~20 Statistics homework assignments
- Clean my room
- Actually learn Physics shit

Before I get off the computer and work on the above, I want to advertise [livejournal.com profile] aroma_teaparty! It's for people into Jpop and Kpop (arama + omona) to get along and fangirl together.

It's been a while... I was away at camp (which was super fun and will have an epik post later tonight) and then sick a week later while trying to make up all the school shit I missed. Fun stuff. I was going to have a huge rant on everything from fandom to real life and whine my ass off, BUT NEWS MADE EVERYTHING ALL BETTER (plus Tylenol is finally working against my cold and I stopped pmsing). NEW SINGLE. TEGOMASU TOUR. SHIGE LEAD IN A DRAMA. HOLY CRAP, "nothing" for 11 months and now SO MUCH STUFF ♥ I'll stop using capslock now.

Isn't having an acapella version weird for JE group though? Not that I would know, since the only group I really follow is NEWS. They've had Yume no Kazu Dake & Sono Egao (& HwM from that one MS perf xD). Honestly, I don't think that NEWS can sing, but I still like their voices. I think that Tegoshi's voice is really nice though he tends to oversing. I really like how well Massu can manipulate and control his voice. I like Ryo's only sometimes, depending on my mood lmao. I like Yamapi's when it's been through the studio treatment. I like Shige's in Kakao. I like Koyama's voice for the same reason I like Aiba's-- it's cute. And though it doesn't matter what KusaUchi's voices are like, dammit they still count ;__; I like Uchi's when it isn't too high and Kusano's voice is just pretty all the time to me.

yeah. I had a point, but idk what happened.

:D now I'm done with NEWS obsessing.

In other fandom news, DBSK will be singing some ballad as the theme for a jmovie I was excited about since the cast is Junpei & DAIGO. So DBSK can't disband now! Unless they release that song early, break up and die, and the movie chooses something else as their theme song.

Speaking of pretty people, after seeing this fan manip by [livejournal.com profile] elitejean, Aiba needs brown hair and hazel eyes.

I decided to not pimp out graphics/fanart when I started using my journal properly because uhmmm I go through almost every icon journal/community on livejournal, but Aiba looks really pretty there.
There's also an amazing Massu fanart here that I thought was a black and white photo until I looked closer.

I've been watching a lot of jdramas while I was home sick since my brain wasn't working well enough for studying anyways. So now I'm caught up with Code Blue 2, YamaNade, and Massugu na Otoko. I watched 1LoT and am finally finishing Zettai Kareshi. I'm planning on watching the current Nakanai to Kimeta Hi and Tokujo Kabachi later. I think I'll copypaste my email obsessing over Code Blue here just to have it saved haha. Even Toma has fantasies about Code Blue Pi. Ah, how I love fanservice♥
I just want to link this: Yuki-Tego's underwear with sex positions.


...I am a genius with my transitions. Whatever, here's a list of idol birthdays I missed:
Sho (01/24; 28), Hina (01/26; 28), Jaejoong (01/26 or 02/04; 24), Yunho (02/06; 24)
Meh, I like them all, but no spam since I'm lazy.

Being the lazy senior that I am, I did my nails instead of cleaning my room like I was supposed to. Oh well. I want to take a picture, but... I'm lazy xD Also, the fact that Ryo likes pretty nails makes me happy. I'm not sure why :P

This picture is unrelated to everything, but very cute. So I will end with this:


*off to happily read f-list*


EDITS: I got in to CalPoly Pomona, San Jose State, UC Riverside, and UC Irvine so far. Yay...? ¯\(°_o)/¯ Why are you telling me so early and making me paranoid about other schools??? ;___;
sumo_mona: (NEWS - member ai)
There was a post on news_jpop about how their number of pages in some magazine are decreasing and the entire post was ~omg why so inactive~ etc. I just... don't want the OP to attack me there so I'll talk about NEWS however I like on my own journal.

Am I the only person that likes NEWS for how they can have all separate activities? Okay sure, so I'm mostly a Yamapi fan which is why I love all his solo stuff, but I really do like the rest of NEWS just as much, I'm not like those "pipi-chan so kawaii ne" fans.

Seriously, isn't it a benefit to NEWS that they can be a group where all of their members can have separate activities? I understand that there is a popularity gap like Yamapi, Ryo | KoyaShigeTegoMasu, but you're going to have that in every group. Unless Johnny-san made a group with Yamapi, Jin, Kame, Toma, Ryo, and Matsujun. Actually, there probably still would be a popularity gap-- it would develop eventually. Not to mention that that would be a very strange group.

Anyways, maybe I'm too positive, but whenever fans worry about NEWS breaking up, I just laugh at them. Are you fucking serious? I know that they haven't done much this year. That doesn't mean they're breaking up. They had a single that charted at 11th on the yearly charts even though there wasn't that much promotion, why the hell would Johnny disband them now. If he really hated NEWS like people say, then NEWS wouldn't have come back during that 2006-2007 Countdown. Johnny-san doesn't like one group more than another, he's there for the money. Of course there's people in the agency he likes more, but really, I think he uses his marketing skills, not favoritism. Arashi is just selling crazy well, why would he not use this opportunity to the fullest?

Maybe it's because I became a NEWS fan this year that I can't actually see their inactivity. I think that's probably it. But I like NEWS this way. Of course I want the members to actually see each other and interact with each other, but I do know that Yamapi and Ryo are still in a separate league from "the rest of them." I believe that they're all friends now, but that doesn't change the fact that Japanese people (hell, superficial LJ-ers like me too) like Yamapi and Ryo more.

"Ryo won't be with NEWS for Countdown, of course NEWS is breaking up!" ... At first I didn't get why people were saying that Ryo wouldn't be at Countdown because all I do for Kanjani8 is watch eitokickass. After finding out that Ryo won't be at Countdown with NEWS because Kanjani8 is having a concert tour, I thought "aww no Kanjani8 at Countdown this year" instead of "no Ryo in NEWS." Maybe that seems more rational to me because I'm a brat and I think that I'm always right.

It's 11:11 and I wish for NEWS fans to stop whining and just get along.

I refuse to put this under a cut, so for those of you who read this, you get a prize!

scans of some random NEWS book full of papa pics from Kinokuniya~

preview:




MF zip - 51 pictures
my scanning skills are nonexistent, but really, who cares.

I'd share it at news_jpop so more than 10 people get to see it, but idk how official it is / I don't want a bunch of annoying people commenting about paparazzi pictures.

Feel free to share the link / reupload / whatever.

I think I'll go for a midnight run to nowhere, everything's closed. If my dad gets away from the TV and goes to bed any time soon.

I should be sleeping... but this was fun to answer :)


• Leave me a comment with the name of your favorite song.
• I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can get to know you better.
• Update your journal with the answers to the questions.
• Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.


questions from [livejournal.com profile] crystallekil:

1. who do you think is bigger, yamapi or jin?
LOL nice way to start this off xD
Yamapi (no matter what you're talking about, top or bottom). Because I have some proof. See, Pi doesn't have to reach as far as Jin. yes, I know it doesn't work. no, I don't just wanna link those pictures. Plus Nino agrees with me:

video )

Though I don't mind being proven wrong, I mean, if Jin's is called eggplant and all...

2. what do you want to go to college for, or do you want to go at all?
haha I see that you've noticed my incessant whining about apps xD
I've complained when asked this question as an essay question from certain schools because I couldn't exactly write an essay going: "college --> money :D" Though that's basically it.
Honestly it's more like I have to go. I don't not want to go, but my parents did really well in school since they immigrated here to California from India and all. The atmosphere of where I live affects me too. At my school not going to college is unheard of. A lot of the seniors I know from last year are rooming with each other at UCs haha.
I want to go to college for something related to biology. It's always been my favorite subject... so yeah :)
My dream job when I was a kid was to be a doctor, but now that seems way too hard/long lol question #1 and I'm happy with just studying bio.

3. what's your favorite kat-tun song?
I have this love/hate relationship with KAT-TUN and don't really know much of their music outside of their singles. ummm Will Be All Right! With Lips, Don't U Ever Stop, Real Face, She Said, Hell No, & Sadistic Love ranked up there too. I'm indecisive.

4. what foreign food do you like the best?
...this question is the hardest one to answer -__-
well, I had Chicken Biriyani for dinner.
and I go for Pearl Milk Tea almost every day after school if that counts as foreign food.

5. do you want news to be 8 again or just acknowledge the other two?
just acknowledge the other two. I know that 8nin NEWS is not going to happen. I'll be happy if it does, but I'm not expecting it at all. While I like older clips with NEWS as 8, I still think that they're fine as 6. I saw them first as 6 in weeeek and Never Ending Wonderful Story and I thought that what I saw then was real. Even though I think that NEWS still talks to Uchi and Kusano, I don't think that NEWS (& their new fans) would be able to adjust (back) to 8nin NEWS.
I just miss Uchi and Kusano, even though I found out about NEWS wayyy after they left.
