Random Thoughts & Such

For those of you that may not know, "Sashiburi" roughly translates to "it's been a while" and is usually used as a greeting when meeting someone again after a long time.
And once again, I seem to have let a few months go by before I updated this thing. Sorry guys.
To be honest, I've been really busy lately updating things.
I've been updating 2 Facebook pages (which I have noticed that I am starting to slack off again) and I've been updating 2 Facebook groups. One of which is a secret group (it's secret because of the videos and stuff that I post on there. Most of them, if I put them on YouTube, would be deleted in about a week because of possible copyright issues; I also post download links to music albums, music videos, dvd tours, etc.) and is called Kis-My-KAT-TUN, which I developed for Kis-My-Ft2 & KAT-TUN fans. The other is a group that's supposed to help you learn Japanese (but I've been oober slack in this area and haven't updated it in a while....not that it matters since the only other member is my friend, and she's hardly ever on....)
Let's see, here's a list (along with links) of all the stuff I'm supposed to be updating:
-Senga Kento (PAGE) http://www.facebook.com/senchan2011
-Kis-My-KAT-TUN (PAGE) http://www.facebook.com/KisMyKATTUN
-Kis-My-KAT-TUN (GROUP) http://www.facebook.com/groups/kismy.kattun/
-Kis-My-KAT-TUN LJ COMM http://kismy-kattun.livejournal.com
-Kis-My-KAT-TUN PAGE http://tumber.com/kismykattun
-Kis-My-KAT-TUN COMM http://kismy-kattun.dreamwidth.org
And that's not including my personal stuff~~ DX
But honestly, I've been thinking about just deleting all of the extra Kis-My-KAT-TUN stuff. Mainly because there's no point in posting all of these download links if no one is going to comment and say "thanks" every once in a while. I mean seriously, it took me a really long time for me to upload all of that stuff, and I still get no appreciation for spending 24+ hours working my butt off to upload this stuff on a slow internet with no sleep...
well enough of my ranting for now. I guess I'll start with the updates:

Arashi has a new song, and it will be the theme song of Aiba's new drama, which starts April 4th (I think. I'm not sure what the name of the drama is either though)
KAT-TUN's newest album, CHAIN, was released on 2012.02.22. Here's the tracklist:
-05 FINALE [Taguchi Junnosuke's new solo]
-06 STEP BY STEP [Nakamaru Yuichi's new solo]
-08 Ano hi no Youni
-09 Zutto [Kamenashi Kazuya's new solo]
-11 Hakanai Yubisaki
-12 ~again [Ueda Tatsuya's new solo]
-14 DANGEROUS CAT ~MAKE ME WET~ [Tanaka Koki's new solo; it's the last of his "Make You Wet" series]
-15 Hodokyou
-17 SOLDIER [this song is 8 mins long - hidden track called "CHAIN OF LOVE" is in here]

Taguchi Junnosuke is going to be in a drama starting this April too: "Legal High" is the name of the drama. I don't know much more than that at the moment. I'll have to check into it, if anyone would ever post any info about it....
Kamenashi Kazuya threw the opening ceremonial pitch on 2012.03.23 for the first preseason game of the year. It was the Oakland Athletics (U.S. team) vs. GIANTS (Japanese team) and I don't know who won or lost that game because no one ever posted about the outcome.... I've read tons of updates on what Weeks (the batter for Oakland Athletics that Kamenashi Kazuya pitched against) said/did, and they all seem to be roughly the same: Weeks was told by reporters that Kame was the Japanese version of Justin Timberlake, Weeks said he figured he was a celebrity or something because he'd never been asked to swing and miss before. lol. KAT-TUN had a concert at the dome the following day and Weeks went there looking for Kame. Weeks told Kame "you moved your shoulders too fast, that's why your pitch was outside" and even said that he would buy Kame & MLB tickets to the US. Kame remarked that he liked Weeks and was glad that he met him. I uploaded the video of Kame's ceremonial opening pitch to the Kis-My-KAT-TUN group. If you would like to join the group, comment below about it, or message me on FB and I'll add you to it. smile
Yaotome Hikaru of Hey! Say! JUMP is going to be in a drama that will begin this April as well. I am not sure of the name, but I know that it is sort of like an old Samurai tale or something similar.
Tamamori Yuta will also be in another drama this April, but I know absolutely nothing about it, other than that he is in one.
Kis-My-Ft2 released their single, "SHE! HER! HER!" on 2012.03.21 and then released their first album the following week on 2012.03.28 titled "Kis-My-First" here's the tracklist for both:

02 Girl Is Mine
04 タビダチノウタ (Tabadachi no Uta)

Hey! Say! JUMP had another JUMPPARTY this year. I wanna say it's on dramacrazy.net, but I'm not sure since I haven't watched it yet.
Hey! Say! JUMP's SUMMARY 2011 was released in Feb. It's 2 discs long and if you wanna download it, message me and I'll send you to where you can get it. [It's not mine, so I can't send you straight to the download links.]
Senga Kento, Miyata Toshiya, Yokoo Wataru, and Nikaido Takashi have been given the opportunity to perform their own crew plays [Crea plays] this year. For more info on that, leave a comment and I'll send you the link where you can read about it. smile
ummm....really there have been so many updates and such that I don't know what else to post....
Arashi's single "Wild At Heart" was released in either Jan or Feb. and they have a new single coming out next month.
Akanishi Jin's US Album, JAPONICANA was also released around the same time. Tracklist for JAPONICANA will be posted below the rest of Jin's updates. Jin got married to actress Kumura Meisa, they are expecting a baby, Jin's US tour has mainly been him singing his JAPONICANA songs, however the encore has been his latest Japanese single: Seasons. smile There haven't been too many fan reports, but in both NY & SF, he had bras thrown at him during the song "California Rock" by some of his fans. The bra's said "TAKE OFF YOUR BRA" in permanent marker and the words were referring to Jin's sunglasses, which are huge enough to cover half of his face. Other comments on the bras were "We love you; We wanna see your eyes" etc.
01 Sun Burns Down
02 California Rock (ft. Prophet)
03 That's What She Said (ft. Uffie)
04 Like You
05 Set Love Free
06 Aphrodisiac (ft. Static Revenger)
07 Oowah
08 Test Drive (7th Heaven Mix)(ft. Jason Derulo)
09 Tell Me Where

That's really all I can think of right now..... hopefully I'll be able to get back on over the next week and I'll be able to give other updates or links smile

Here's my opinion of the CDs:
KAT-TUN: I love these songs, the boys did a wonderful job choosing which ones to put on the album, and I seriously love Ueda, Junno, & Kame's solo songs, as well as Hodoukyou & Ano hi no Youni.

Kis-My-Ft2: When I first heard these songs, because they are so catchy, I listened to them over and over. Taipi, you sure know how to write your songs because I love your new solo: "Love Meee" and as a matter of fact, it ranked number one mp3 download. The other songs all seem to play off of each other in a good way and I love how the album is arranged. The boys did an excellent job on their first album, and I'm proud of them. ^_^

Akanishi Jin: I will admit, when I first heard it, I was a little disappointed. I thought, "Oh great, another American CD of nothing but songs about sex and drugs..." but after a while, I guess I started to like some of the songs. I still disagree with the message of the song, but the music in the background is just too catchy to not listen to. Since it was Jin, I figured it would be something a little more "his style" and not American adopted, but I guess I was wrong about that. Anyway, in an interview, he said that "it was explicit because he was trying to just get it out there and sort of let the music speak for itself" Well, even though I could have argued til I was blue in the face that he could have done it a bit differently, there's no way I would have gotten through to him. He's done pretty good so far, and I hope this continues to work out for him. I personally would just like to see more of the "real" Jin. and I want him to stop wearing the big flashy sunglasses all the time~ lol XD

That's pretty much it....
