My parents came to visit today!
Dad: Where the fuck is Costco?! Why are we in the middle of nowhere! I hate this place.
Me: ...........which is why you forced me to come here...?
Didn't get a response to that haha. It was still nice seeing them though, I can't believe that it's only been a week since I got here!

- I preordered a pamphlet. Yes I know that it is a complete waste of money ($35 actual pamphlet, don't even want to think about shipping -_-), but... the previews were cute.
- I've been a very happy NEWS fangirl lately despite the [ profile] newshfan drama (it's not freaking Oct 1st yet! liar T_T YOU ARE LIEEEEEEEEEEE~♪, NEWS songs can be applied to anything)and will just link to everything instead of squee-ing at every line haha:
- Pi = Jin + In the name of the moon, Tego will punish you!
- Ryo licked Massu's cheek
- Massu initiated some RyoMassu fanservice
- Male ShigeMassu fans!!♥ ... &Ryo says the f word
- [ profile] daelite's fanreports: 001, 002, 003, & a timeline of the (gross) costumes XD

+ NEWS LIVEx3 Pamphlet translation
Seriously, NEWS' costumes are the ugliest JE costumes I've ever seen, and idgaf & am so so excited to see performaces of Aki no Sora, Endless Summer, Umareshi Kimi e, & Iitai Dake. And the NEWS air gondolas, lol, what a name... they're like blimps, not gondolas~ ;P

Look, I will be a good kid and go to sleep on time tonight to wake up for my 9:00 lecture :)

ETA: you got my love, you are my sexy girl LMFAO FAHRENHEIT, I LOVE YOU. hardest I've laughed at an MV for a while. Last time I laughed so hard was... for Super Hot XD
sumo_mona: (NEWS - member ai)
→ Hotaru no Hikari ep 10
cut for super cuteee but spoiler-y gifs )
cute 「大人のホタルさん」 :D

→ Autumn's Concerto
I haven't watched a tdrama for about 2 years now (lol JE took over), but with W's constant pushing, I (finally) started watching this. It's really cute though a bit too dramatic for me... but it's so cute that I don't care. And there's a lot of pretty people (Vanness, Ady An, Tiffany Xu!♥). That always helps haha... They mentioned ProDai!

→ Jin!
Someone made Jin UTB gifs and while it doesn't have Jin saying that Hey Girl is a stupid song with awful lyrics, they're funny. Also #jinakanishi was a success! No thanks to me. Josh said that he called Jin & that Jin was looking at them. Plus Jin might have a twitter... :)

2NE1's comeback stage
a;lskdjakldjaslkja; I hated the songs from their MVs (except for Go Away) though I liked their MVs but eeeee I like Clap Your Hands so much after watching the perf! I've downloaded the album, but I haven't listened to it yet haha. I'm still looping Breathe (ISSA x SoulJa), JYJ's mini album, & Aki no Sora haha...

I don't want to put any spoilers here, so I'll just say this: 'twas cute. I liked it more than the book :) Maki's English was really cute! I have no complaints other than it being too soft and quiet. Tegoshi's English made my weeeek. "Now I'm pissed" sounded like "now I'm paste" in a failed seductive voice. He also called someone a dick. You should watch this even if it's just for that.

→ NEWS' LIVE album & unplugged DVD
As always, I can't wait until I get my album to listen to the songs. The DVD is just sla;dkajsfa;s;lak and I will wait for an HQ download so I can spazz with caps and gifs. As glad as I was that they used SNOW EXPRESS & SUMMER TIME to make it haru-natsu-aki-fuyu, I wish they would do the whole LIVE album haha. /greedy NEWS fan. The album is aslkdj;lasjkad so much better than I thought it would be from the previews. I've been fangirly-happy all day XD
sumo_mona: (Uchi - forever eight)
1) I stalked Yamashita Rina's blog yesterday and wanted to save the links somewhere:
I am a creep )

2) I bought a bunch of shirts from Threadless: Water Balloons, Such a Great Height, & Lost in my Dreams. Reach for the Stars (Hoshi wo Mezashite XD) was sold out :(

3) My toes are bright yellow with a neon pink gradient + pink sparkles. RyoUchi toes! I'd take a picture, but toes are ugly so idwt :P

Happy birthday, Uchi! ♥
Sometimes I wish I didn't like you or Kusano because I know that you two won't come back and there's no point being hopeful, but ...there's also no point knowing NEWS without you two ;P

1) I found a place to download Hindi songs!!! ldasjkasf;ajlfkajklghaklghal :DDD Ahaha... It's easy to find English, Japanese, Korean, Chinese, AND Spanish songs... but it took me 4 years to find a good place to download Hindi songs -__- I had fun downloading songs from 1970s-2010 yesterday xD I was also creeped out how there's a movie with the same title as my mom's name from the 60s and another with the same name as a market/area in the small city she grew up in from the 30s...

2) This is a really pretty picture of Younha:

& Hello!Younha is back! :D

3) W is finally back from visiting England & Canada! I'm going to go hang out with her for the rest of the day~ :D

4) I listed my LJ interests yesterday & had fun making sure that nothing was a hyperlink besides NEWS xD I wonder if anyone besides me can understand them all... See how many you guys get! Comment trying to decipher these xD

5) Harry Potter meme!
this is long )

I'm still working on that paranoia meme... It's hard D:
sumo_mona: (Jin - wanna die?!)
So I'm sure that everyone's noticed the little facebook & twitter boxes at the bottom of comments & when you're posting a new entry... And I really didn't think much of it until I read that this means that people can repost their comments on your locked entries and link your journal that way to their facebook/twitter.

I don't know about you guys, but I do not want my LJ and FB to ever be connected. I have 2 RL friends on LJ (& one more friend knows about my account), but I trust them to not tell all 500+ of my real life contacts on facebook that I read slash fanfiction about members of Asian boybands.

I'm not saying that I don't trust you guys, but it is really easy to accidentally click on of those little boxes.

You can find out more about this cross-posting issue here. Please spread the word & vote "NOOO I HATE YOU LJ STOP" on these polls: one & two.

Thank you ♥

I'm back from India!

I'm sick, on my period, dehydrated, and exhausted from the stupid plane journey. I hate motion sickness. And jet lag. I know I should have tried harder to sleep last night, but after spending 2 hours wide awake on my bed, I gave up and reread Harry Potter 6 & parts of 7 and went to sleep at 7 in the morning.

Ever since I was little, I tried to keep a diary of what I did on vacations. Notice the use of the word "try" ...I never managed to. I noted what I did for like the first three days and then got bored of it. But not this time! Whoo, first time ever keeping a full log. First time ever being that bored on vacation :P Not that I didn't enjoy my trip; it was very relaxing being away from my father. Anyway, I have plenty to spam you all about when I'm feeling a little better (and after I'm done researching college stuff / orientation).

I have to leave the house in about 10 minutes for my yearly physical (wait, is this my last one? I'm covered by my parents insurance for sure until I'm 22.... actually, I think until I'm 26... ahh, idk)

Uhhm, anyone want to tell me what happened in fandom this past month? :D? Has NEWS done anything? haha...

To make your job simple if you actually do want to catch me up, I care about NEWS, KAT-TUN, Arashi, V6, and anything that affects JE as a whole. Catching up with the rest of jpop is fairly easy, just look up new releases on [ profile] jpop_uploads and read through [ profile] aramatheydidnt. I stopped paying attention to kpop and really do not care unless DBSK gets back together or there's a YG concert in San Francisco, 2 equally unlikely events.

abrupt ending to this post because I'm late and tired, byebye.
sumo_mona: (Default)
I'm staying up watching Azumanga Daioh with Spanish subs and my brain cannot process Spanish and Japanese at the same time...

I'm done with finals, graduation's on Thursday, and a lot of stuff is going on. I'll update on real life some time soon; I needed to make other people watch this :Dv

Crystal Kay's FLASH PV HD Download!

PS: Welcome [ profile] hageshii_ame! 8D
sumo_mona: (NEWS - member ai)
6 years since NEWS' official debut today~ :D

This song is so lame. The costumes in the PV are painful to look at. The "off shoot" parts of the PV show NEWS wasn't filled with member-ai and whatnot from the start.

...and I still love this song.
~*~NEWS power~*~

So in life today, I had school from 9 to 11. Only art class! I dropped stats. I called my college and they said that my admission wouldn't be affected and I would probably be able to skip statistics with my AP score result (*crosses fingers*). My mom wanted me to drop it since the first week of school. I didn't want to because it's like... giving up. It is giving up-- but I also didn't wanna work my ass off for a C. My schedule is so nice now, pretty much no stress at school :D

but I also feel like an idiot since I could have dropped it 5 months ago at the beginning of the semester with the same benefits and no W on my transcript -__-

You know you love my amazing transitions. Here, a funny PiKame gif
sumo_mona: (Younha)
and if you follow me on twitter, you would know that I'm not really doing well with the whole ~no fandom / studying~ thing ...

Breaking my fail hiatus just to post this on Younha's birthday.

Happy 22nd~!

So sad that this is probably the closest I'll ever be to my first kpop love. Please do manage to have international concerts someday!! :D

& also... KUSANO & REIO, WHAT.



I'm gonna fail my exams if I catch up on my f-list tonight. Just one week until AP tests are done. Ganbatte, self.
sumo_mona: (Kame - shy)
Though they're really the only interesting parts of YamaNade 8.

one step and two step to the left, to the left )

Yes, that's all.

I'm just excited about gifs, okay.
sumo_mona: (NEWS - member ai)
I've been kind of down recently, so I've been avoiding fandom a bit. A bit, I still read my communities f-list on my other account and watched NEWS on Music Station xD My reaction: sjkladalslada
1) cute dance that reminds me of Cherish somehow
2) verses (& maybe chorus though I doubt it) were live
3) I think Yamapi really is a C cup.
4) Their clothes! I was expecting ...idk, bright pink JE-like costumes xD It looked like stuff they would all wear in private (though hopefully not for Yamapi's case).
5) Too cute.

No school today! And school starts at noon the next two days (for seniors) because the sophomores have to take the CAHSEE (high school exit exam). So I still haven't done any of my homework...
Yesterday was fun, W&V came over and we walked over 4 miles. I have a blister from it -___- We went to Red Mango for frozen yogurt, Asian pencil store, Radioshack, Target, Whole Foods... We just walked to the biggest intersection near my house and wandered around to see what was there.

Also this weekend, I LEARNED HOW TO MAKE GIFS. Yes, that is capslock worthy. It's the single thing I've wanted to learn since joining fandom. Besides Japanese. Next things to learn are how to sub videos and use photoshop~

cute kids, Toma(pi/shun), and Ho Summer! )

Unrelated to everything, but SNSD is pretty:

I hate W, I know who they all are now. After resisting for 3 whole years, I think I like SNSD.

Yosh~ off to play with my dog and then watch YamaNade, Code Blue 2, and Soukon instead of doing physics homework :Dv
sumo_mona: (Default)
Since it's not showing up on my f-list, I'll link it here: epic Countdown capspam :D?

Some Utada single I didn't know about. I guess it's just more proof that choosing to not get tickets for her concert an hour away in SF was the right thing to do. I'll be packing for being a camp counselor the week of that Sunday anyways! :D (plus the Ryo fangirl I met at my Japanese class this summer is a HUGE Utada fan and will spazz about it for me)

I really want to join in at the hate meme... but screw it, shower/dinner/find my school stuff time.
sumo_mona: (Kusano is cute)
Year-end music shows I have downloaded: FNS Kayousai, Best Hits, Best Artist, Music Station Super Live, Johnny's Countdown, an episode of Music Japan, SBS Gayo Daejun, CDTV (will download). holy crap, over 25 gigs.

What I've watched so far: ...Countdown. LOL SO MUCH FOR CARING ABOUT MUSIC.

I took 261 screencaps, uploaded 244, don't know how many I used. Screencaps resized to something reasonable by LJ so I hopefully won't kill internets (see full 1280x720 quality by opening them in new tabs).

Damn that was hard. I wanted to do this for NWPD DVD, but I still haven't watched the concert properly yet. ...this took forever since I don't really know how to use LJ-scrapbook and I'm not allowed on the computer unless it's for school when my parents are around (they went shopping today haha). Also I took up a third of my total space with all this so um... yeah, I don't think I'll be epic capspamming any time soon with school starting again tomorrow D:
sumo_mona: (Default)

Changmin sitting on Yunho is from their talk segment on CDTV, poster is from SBS Gayo Daejun. Sorry they're kinda big.

I thought that the DBSK disbanding drama was total bs when I found out about it this August. It slowly became more and more real, and I would just say to myself "I'm glad I was never in fandom properly." Besides Epik High and Younha, DBSK were my first Koreans. The first idols I've ever seen. I didn't even know what video downloads were, I just watched about every video about them on youtube. I gradually found Fahrenheit and tdramas and later jdramas and NEWS, so I stopped paying attention to what they did. Even though I don't want to, I still do care. On that CDTV talk, Jaejoong said that he'd like to continue to work hard this year , just like last year. I don't see that happening, as DBSK anyways. I think it would be easier to just give up now and be set for them to hurry up and disband. I'll actually buy their best album and that's it for DBSK, forever.

Big Bang's turn. If I knew about these awards, I would have rooted for SCANDAL♥♥♥. I think that "Japanese netizens" is just stupid, I thought no one pays attention to 2ch. I do agree with the Japanese people though, Big Bang's Japanese success is a huge surprise to me. I don't know what their sales are like so I guess I can't really say 'success,' but they were in major year end shows like MSSL. I don't think they ~deserve~ it since they obviously don't give a shit about Japan and didn't prepare at all like BoA and DBSK, but whatever, I like Big Bang so I don't care.

NOOO YOUNHA GOT SWINE FLU. <-- that was my initial reaction. Even though when I heard that Ryo and Yamapi got it, I was just like "whatever, they're not gonna die." That's so weird.
Swine flu map!:
talked about Tego being sick in 24hrtv promo but never reported swine flu + Ryo + Yamapi + Audrey comedian guy --> Kanjani8 members --> ss501 leader guy --> f(x) --> I don't remember anyone --> Younha.
Obviously, this is all Tegoshi's fault.

This is related: I'm hungry. Someone on facebook linked homemade California Rolls that look really really good.

And now I shall dump screencaps of me playing around on my new ipod. Major props to anyone who knows what my background and what I was listening to are:

LOL my ipod thinks that Shige is M and that P is a woman )

gahh all my caps from Countdown are way too big T__T
sumo_mona: (Default)
My dad blocked youtube on the computer we all use last January just when I was losing interest in Fahrenheit/Taiwan and gaining interest in NEWS. Youtube is like the only place I knew to find Taiwanese videos, so I think my dad blocking youtube helped me get into JE more/faster lol. ...yay my ipod can go on youtube :)

I don't think anyone on my f-list is into Taiwanese stars... but I wanted to put my screencaps somewhere xP

Will Pan on Yue Le Bai Fen Bai!

Quick intro: YLBFB is an entertainment show hosted by Xiao Zhu (Show Luo, actor/host/singer/idol/dork) and Xiao Gui (host/idol?actor/dork). Xiao Zhu parodies his own song while he's on a toilet and Xiao Gui is into BDSM. The hosts are really two spazzes who make out with each other on screen (they've actually kissed too). They both also know about Yamapi: watch Xiao Zhu imitate him during Taiyou no Namida here at news_jpop. Will Pan is a rapper/singer. He was lead of the last tdrama I enjoyed called Miss No Good in summer 08 that he sang the theme song for (Xia Ri Feng (Summer Craze)).

Honestly you don't have to know anything more than that. The screencaps are just them being stupid.

XIA LING ...jiu OH OH / everyone wants to be KimuTaku )

I just finished watching countdown (&taking caps!) and I have notes lmao so I will have a flaily post after I spam your f-list some more with an entry on JE/kpop & random pics.
sumo_mona: (Ryo - LOSER)
I'm trying to clean up my computer and I found a bunch of notepads filled with translation-like-things from when I was watching something & spazzing to V&W. And I want to delete them, but I don't at the same time so I'll just dump them here where no one else will see them. idk when they're from, I watched these raw so probably just a few days after each one was on news_jpop etc for downloading. It is January 17, 2010 today though. Not that it matters.

Spoilers for everything, duh.

12 Days of Christmas, Indian version

We don't celebrate Christmas at my house-- we're not Christian. We used to put up lights and decorate a fake tree and everything, but I don't know why we haven't for the past five years.
Anyways, merry Christmas to everyone who celebrates it~

Classes at the nearby community college are all full so I can't take Japanese 3 or Psychology for the next quarter :(

I really don't have anything to say so I'll just throw links at you.

I haven't watched it yet because I can't see youtube embeds (I know enough html to code one though :P), but Taeyang and Aoyama Thelma?!! So weird.

transition here


Code Blue cast on VS Arashi makes me happy too. I hope it's for more than 10 minutes like last time, but I'll take whatever I can get :P

another transition here

I have 8 tabs open and 6 of them are icons. I've always wanted to be able to make icons... but yeah, I suck. Just keeping whatever I've made here as a log.

close to 40~ )

Yay pancakes~ :D
