Activity Updates & Such [JPOP UPDATES AT THE END!!!]
Ohayou gozaimasu! Migan desu! biggrin
Wow, it's been a while since I've posted anything. Since like... *goes and checks* ... O_o OMG it's been since May!! (2011.05) orz at the fail.
Well I guess I should update this with a little bit about what's happened since the last time we talked, ne?
Ok, so, here we go...
There was the District Convention in Columbia, SC that I went to with some family members. Some interesting things that I remember happening were: We stayed at Country Inn & Suites; We ate at Myabi's Steakhouse & Japanese Restaurant; My cousin B rode back to Sav with my grandparents and I; On the way back to Sav, we stopped at the Cracker Barrel and ate dinner (I got a large blueberry muffin, a granola, berry, & nut breakfast parfait, and a nice glass of mocha coffee. ^_^ ) <-amazed that I remembered this. While we were there, B got a hat that said: "Grandma likes me BEST" (I lol-ed so much on that one.) XD
For the first two weeks, I helped my neighbor, M, pack her stuff before she moved to Ellabelle, Ga. The last two weeks, I too was packing up my stuff and moving to Guyton, Ga for reasons pertaining mainly to my lil sis.
Went up to Social Circle, Ga and visited my Aunt TG while going to my cousin D's baptism. smile (So proud of him ^_^ ) This is also the month that I started babysitting 2 of my uncle's girlfriend's kids. (I don't babysit the other one because he goes to school during the day)
Went up to Social Circle, Ga again and visited with family for my cousin S's wedding. ^_^ I hope they are all doing well, I havent talked to any of them recently.... (Although I'm not really all that worried about them not talking to me because to be honest, I hadn't heard anything from them since I was 4 up until these last 2 yrs.)
I was told at the beginning of October that the kids that I babysat were going to be going to their dad's for 3 weeks, so essentially, I would have no money/job for 3 weeks. >_< Well, as it turns out, the kids dad calls at 4 am on the morning of the day that they are supposed to meet at the already determined meeting site, saying that he can't come get the kids because his truck is broken down. So, needless to say, the kids didn't go to their dad's and I got to babysit those 3 weeks anyway. lol. **(In my personal opinion, he obviously didn't want very much or anything to do with his kids and didn't want to see them because if he had, then he would have found an alternative mode of transportation to get to his kids. For example, he could have asked a friend to drive him to the designated meeting place or borrowed someone's car-no, I don't mean to steal someone's car, I literally mean ask a friend if it is possible for him to borrow their car for a while. Since he didn't put forth an effort to do either of those, I would say that he "just didn't want to be bothered.")
I started taking my neighbor/friend, J, to work every Friday. In return, she gives me gas money. ^_^ Also, I house sat for my grandparents and for my Aunt DK while they were out of town for various reasons.
December (so far):
My neighbor/friend, J, mentioned earlier, have decided on a new weekly tradition-going to Tomo Restaurant in Rincon and eating sushi ^_^ (Yay~~!!) We will alternate on who pays and what we get and also on who the guest of the week is. wink (J doesn't know about this part yet. lol. heeheehee secret secret, ok? sssshhhhhh!!! lol.) Also, just this past weekend I house/dog-sat for my grandparents while they went to Disney World with my other family members. (neither I nor anyone else in my family were invited. I didn't know about it until the day after they left, and to be honest, I didn't care. Mainly because I didn't have the financial resources to have been able to go to Disney World.) Let's see...I guess now I could tell you about upcoming plans, ne? lol. Hmmm... well, this week, I am going to be watching all 3 of my uncle's girlfriend's kids because school is out for the Christmas holidays, and ...hmmm.... Ah! This Friday, J and I plan on going to Build-A-Bear workshop where we will both make teddy bears based on our favorite people. ^_^ (I'm kinda excited, but I'm also nervous. I don't know who I want to make. I'm stuck between making Fujigaya Taisuke [Kis-My-Ft2], Senga Kento [Kis-My-Ft2], Yamada Ryosuke [Hey! Say! JUMP! & NYC], Ohno Satoshi [Arashi], or Sakurai Sho [Arashi]....hmmmm....Seriously leaning toward either Fujigaya or Senga at the moment, but we shall see who it is that I ultimately picked on Friday. Gambarimasu guys in trying to pursuade me to create you! >_< ) Also to come, this upcoming weekend, I will be house/dog-sitting for my Aunt DK while she goes to Florida for Christmas. Also, supposedly on Christmas, I will be driving to go get my brother A from his dad up in Dexter, Ga.

Well, that's pretty much all for me. ^_^ hey, I just thought of something that I could do, this way I will be on here at least once or twice a week!
Does anyone know of or is anyone a fan of Arashi, KAT-TUN, Kis-My-Ft2, or Akanishi Jin?? Maybe even Hey! Say! JUMP or NYC???
Well, how about I tell you some updates about them once a week?? biggrin
I'm open to suggestions on more groups to update about if you would like for me to do updates about other groups, etc.
However, I will warn you now:
I will never do an update on Justin Beiber or whoever if I don't listen to their songs/watch their dramas/movies, etc. So basically, it's gotta be related to Jpop & Johnny's Entertainment. Sorry, but there are just way too many people already posting things about Justin Beiber and Selena Gomez, etc and I don't want to post about stuff that everyone else is posting about.
Plus, these guys are amazing!! There's no reason why they shouldn't get shown love. smile
So, first up is:
-Released new single about a month or 2 ago, "Meikyuu Love Song" (aka "Labyrinth Love Song")
-Sakurai Sho drama: "Nazotoki wa Dinner no Ato de" ("Mystery-Solving is After Dinner") Sho plays a sharp-tongued butler and the drama focuses on his relationship with his Ojou-sama. ("milady" or "mistress") 9 episodes out right now, the 9th episode should be subbed in English by Thursday, then next week, the finale, episode 10.
-Matsumoto Jun drama: "Lucky 7" this will start in January.
-Aiba Masaki was in Taiwan recently (not exactly sure why he was there, just saw a glimpse of a pic of him at an airport surrounded by security guards and screaming fangirls.... orz gomen ne for not knowing more.)
-Arashi to have a special tv show on Fuji TV called "Fuku Arashi" that will start on 2011.12.27 and end on 2012.01.03 However there will be no show on 2011.12.31 because:
-Arashi is hosting the Johnny's 2011-2012 Countdown this year! biggrin I believe this is their 3rd consecutive year that they have hosted the Kouhaku <-(not sure how to spell that, please correct me if I'm wrong)-
-Oricon Yearly charts: Arashi placed 1st in both "yearly album sales" & "music dvd" for their album "Beautiful World" which was released in 2011.07 They also placed 2nd in "Total Artist Sales" falling just short of 1st place. (first place was claimed by AKB48)
-Also, apparently there is supposed to be a cameo appearance of Sho as his character Kageyama from "Nazotoki wa Dinner no Ato de" and Jun as his character in "Lucky 7" in a drama in which Ohno Satoshi will star. Not sure if this is 100% true or not, but I will be looking into this and will be able to tell you a definite answer on whether or not this is true later on.
-Another maybe: Jun guesting in "Nazotoki wa Dinner no Ato de" (I must say that unless he's in the last episode, I haven't seen him because I have seen all 9 episodes so far and to tell the truth, the suspense left by the cliff hanger ending of the 9th episode is driving me crazy!! >_< )
-Oh yeah, 2011.12.19 Jun released the CM for his new drama, and the theme song, which btw, is Arashi's new single for 2012. Don't know the name of the song yet, but I'm on the lookout for that as well smile
ok, so, moving on to.....
-Kamenashi Kazuya drama: "Yokai Ningen Bem" there are 9 episodes out, all 9 episodes have been subbed
-Ueda Tatsuya drama: "Runaway~Aisuru Kimi no Tame ni" there are 8 episodes out, however only the first 4 have been subbed. (again I am dying of suspense!! >_< )
-new tv show: "KAT-TUN no Zettai Manetakunaru" (I'm assuming it's like a variety show type thing, I've seen bits and pieces of it here and there, but I can tell you that there are 9 episodes and that there are people subbing them)
-released new single "Birth" around a month ago. 2 pvs were shown. "Birth" & "Star Rider" the other 2 songs on the album were: "Act on Emotion" and "Baby B Mine"
moving on.... next is:
-released their new single "We Never Give Up" (aka "WNGU" I know I am not the only to say this, and I will not be the last, but I was kinda disappointed with the pv. Don't get me wrong, it was great, the message in the song is amazing and all, and I love the way they sing it, but Kis-My-Ft2 is a seven member group, not a 3 member group with 4 back dancers. I seriously disagree with that. It's no wonder that the other members aren't as well known when they are always dancing back up and only singing the chorus parts. I hope that in the future, they will work on equality among the members and not try to use Kitayama, Fujigaya, & Tamamori's popularity to get more ratings or whatever. Even though I am a huge fan of Fujigaya's, it hurt to see the other members portrayed at back up dancers. Hence why I am the admin of the Senga Kento page on fb-because I'm trying to get others to realize that the other members are amazing too! It's not just those 3 that are amazing, the whole group is made up of 7 wonderful, talented people! I rest my case and will now move on. Sorry about the rant, minna orz )
-Oricon yearly charts: Kis-My-Ft2 got 1st place for "New Artist of the Year" and their single "Everybody Go" ranked 10th in the world. (Omedetou to the boys on such a big accomplishment! Gambatte ne next year!)
-Kis-My-Ft2 will be guests on Hey Hey Hey's Christmas special (Will get more info on this, i.e. channel, time, etc.)
-Fujigaya Taisuke drama: "Risou no Musuko" this will air starting on January 14th and will be on every saturday at 9:00 pm?? (Will double check that and get back to you on that info) The main character of the drama is Yamada Ryosuke from Hey! Say! JUMP & NYC where he plays a mama's boy that trys his best in school and to get rid of all his mother's boyfriends. His mother begins working in a cafeteria at a school that has the worst reputation. So Yamada quits his prestigious prep school and applies to go to said bad school without telling his mother who is very mad when she finds out. Nakajima Yuto plays Yamada's best friend while Fujigaya Taisuke plays a delinquent that attends the bad school. (so it's kinda gonna be like Misaki Number One! except I heard that Taipi doesn't have a mom in this drama...I wonder what kind of character relationship this will have an effect on the drama....)
and now, we move on to......
Akanishi Jin:
-released his American debut song titled "Test Drive" ft. Jason Derulo, on 2011.11.08 the pv came out shortly afterward and the song was soon at the top of the itunes list for most downloaded song
-recently released his second single, called "Seasons" (it is mainly in Japanese except for the chorus, however, I loved the song and could so totally feel the papa-love that Jin was expressing towards that little girl in the pv :3 )
-Was spotted at a Tackey & Tsubasa concert in Japan on 2011.12.10. Apparently he had just finished a photo shoot with a magazine and had decided to go to the concert. It's rumored that he also has other magazine photo shoots to do throughout the follow two weeks or so.

**If you would like, I can post the pvs, just leave a comment requesting one or more or all. However, I DO NOT have the pv for "Test Drive" If you would like audios, I would suggest that you try itunes, amazon, cdjapan, etc. IF you do not have the financial resources available, pm me and I can see about sending you the mp3 of the song or songs of your choice. However, please use me as a last resort. I don't want to be giving out free songs and downloads and such-it doesn't help support the boys who work hard to do what they do and that, to put it in Arashi's terms, "to give YOU dreams."

Also, another random update that I will throw in before I have to leave:
NYC's new single, "Wonderful Cupid," the pv will be released 2012.01.04 Look on youtube for the pv preview. I will post a link later, if the video is still available...
Also, Johnny's has decided to give Mizushima Hiro a fanbase for his fans. I'm assuming that would be like newsletter-emails and such. look in Tokyo Hive for that info, or I will update it later....

Jaa ne~ Off to work
[after getting no sleep because I was busy typing this up for the 4th time since the first 3 didn't work!!! >_< ]

(AAAHHHH~~~!!! It's so long!! sweatdrop
