Nakayoshi TV

I have a new favourite TV program!! It is Nakayoshi TV, the one where recently Matsuko was on for the heated kpop vs jpop discussion. Well, the show existed a bit before that but now it's moved to golden time slot.

Most of the past episodes I've seen were about Japan vs China vs Korea, on topics like movies, entertainment industry, pop music, food, and colleges. Of course a lot of the discussions were not very deep but still interesting and entertaining :)

And there will be a Japan vs China vs US episode soon! Their song was 'I want you NiChuuKan, I need you NiChuuKan' (for J/C/K) but for the US episode it became 'I want you NiChuuMei, GDP 1 2 3' HAHAHAHA
And there will be a Japan vs China vs India one soon too!

I am such a nostalgic person! I'm re-downloading all the old shounen clubs, cuz I actually like a bunch of the old johnnys songs they covered now! also to me kt was at their best and iconic then

Anyways, I saw this at kamichan's lj and it's pretty cool, British TV presenters Ant and Dec singing Kinki Kid's Glass no Shounen back in the 90s


history of Johnny's~~

So.... in my randomly clicking through youtube clips I found out that Yamapi was on some show with Katori Shingo that quizzed them about Johnnys. Seeing as I LOVED this kind of show.... I had to find the long clip and watch it all..... and I did. It was a SmaStation from earlier this year

It's crazy to see the history.... there really weren't that many Johnny's bands in the beginning (they also used to sing/ dance really really well O_o) Anyways, once they started covering the 90s bands..... it was all too familiar territory..... and when they showed KT debut Yamapi had a huge smile.... so did Shingo.... wonder what that's about lol

I wonder if this has been translated? I haven't heard about it AT ALL.....then again recently I've been pretty secluded in my JE fandom.....

In other JE news.... I sang Sexy Zone at karaoke.... kinda embarassed tho haha..... and I really like kmf2's we'll never give up! My friend said she could totally foresee me becoming those 50 yr old women who still love Johnnys lol

hp slash on conan?

OMFG I can't believe I missed this gem!

I'm laughing til I can't breathe!!! And western media is so AWESOME for being so direct and confronting the issue xD

And also he and his brother are awesome too xDDDD

Oh my goodness oh my goodness oh my goodness!!

I *might* be able to be selected for a popular Chinese tv show! It'll be like my own taste of.....Ummmm

Anyways I don't think my looks are enough at all but maybe my quirks/ background will win them over XD it is like reality tv after all!

But maybe I shouldn't be this happy about random....stuff that will just satisfy my own vanity.... Well I'm still excited tho :3


dare ga..... tasukete~~~

omg I know at my 'advanced age' I shouldn't be saying this anymore.... but I srsly have troubles getting along with my mom. 3 fights in the past 3 days I've been home!! And most recently it's because a lady friend of hers thinks my fashion sense is bad. Just cuz I wore a jacket and fitted jeans. She thinks I shouldn't 'follow trends' and find my own style more. That's fine except I don't really incorporate many trends into my clothing..... and by 'my style' i feel like she means '40 year old females style'......

Oh yeah and this stranger said my legs were too fat to follow the skinny jeans trend and i should only wear loose pants..... O_O


This is such a sad predicament I'm in..... my mom keeps thinking the reason why I don't have a bf yet is cuz 'my image is not good' especially how I dress..... it doesn't attract guys or something. Which *may* be true.... but if I followed her advice I'd be attracting the wrong type of guys..... sigh

Soooo.... yes i'm desperate for a guy to get my mom off my back..... but I don't know how low my standards can drop for that.....

In other news I really really want to go to Hawaii! Like really bad!! But it's so expensive and also I sort of want to see kat-tun perform there. If they are going to still..... I dunno.... everything seems postponed since that big earthquake. But all my friends are going in July.....should I go with them or should I wait? I don't even know how much I'd like kat-tun's concerts live..... but it'd still be nice to go and support them in the USA..... and everything. We'll see.....

First off..... I'd like to say that Dero is an AWESOME show!!!

cuz yeah! Random facts? logic puzzles?? hella yeah! Plus sometimes there are johnnys in it. On of my fav episodes is the Chinen/Yamada one..... because they're in it xD And omg Chinen is such a little genius <3333

Most of the k8 guests are hilarious.....

That akb girl.... the one with big eyes and forehead and had a single out.... is quite smart too.

And omg Junno impressed me so much with his knowledge too! But Nakamaru-kun, Mr "who proposed the theory of relativity....uhhh... Newton??" Noooo Sir.... Have you not taken high school physics? Then again these kind of knowledge is useless for them.... O_o

Anyways, I'm so excited I sorta got my brother hooked too, will be watching more!

Hello World! (Again)

So.... I've un-deleted this journal. Mostly because I realized even though I cut lj from my life, JE still follows me everywhere LOL, (is it cuz I'm a nostalgic person that I can't get rid of them entirely?? heck I've even been rewatching old kt concerts!). AND I still have things to say.... So I don't know if anyone is following this journal anymore but it's ok even if I end up talking to myself xD.

So yes, off to a new start :)

of movies and dreams

watched inception with friends
it was actually a lot better than i expected.  Cuz I'm not really into movies....  And I'm sort of angry that I missed a 'tokyo skyscape scene' in the beginning cuz I started calling my mom.  To be fair I was kinda bored by the beginning and Mr. Watanabe.  lol.....  well i'll just re-watch that part when it comes out.

I really loved everything the movie incorporated, cuz it def had my attention for the rest of it.  Like all the crazy faux intellectual ideas and the action sequences/ visual stimulation.  I've actually been thinking about dreams recently.  Like why in my dreams other people can speak fluent Japanese/French while I'm struggling to understand 20% of what they're saying, and reply back in broken whatever.  Lol...... if my subconscious conjures the fluent Japanese up in my dream, why can't i do it in real life ):

Also, I wonder if it's scientifically proven that dreams seem longer because so much of your brain is trying to create the rest of that world...... it definitely seems so to me.  There are dreams where I swear I've been in for like 1 hr but only 5 or 15 minutes passed in real life.  It's sorta freaky.

Like just before going out today, it happened again, and sometimes I can dream up sensations so real, I felt paralyzed like something was holding my arms/most of my body down.  I freaked a little.  Also I wonder if my obsession with Johnny's is too much.  I dreamt about yamapi and kame and jin...... in my 5 minute dream.  It was a really happy dream......I guess if ever I were Johnny and had a harem I'd choose those three.  Tho maybe I could do without yamapi.  LOL  my subconscious is greedy indeed.  and suddenly I understand how ppl could love more than one person at the same time or why chinese emperors/ rich guys way back when had multiple wives......  I think Jin would be my 1st wife, kame would be the flirty consort I picked up along the way and uhhhh yamapi who I want for his perfect body.  In my dreams right?  xP  Actually..... that may not be a bad idea...... I think this may deserve a full entry later on while i sketch out the idea more xDDDD

And in the car, my friend was telling us about how way back, when her dad was in college in China and they lived in single-sex bunk beds with 8 ppl to a room, there was this one guy from a different room, that would come over and share a bed with his friend all the time, at night......  And apparently guys had simple minds back then and didn't think it was strange at all.......  O_o

And now those two friends both live in SF but at least one is married, but they still meet up every weekend to do......stuff.......

Hmmmm......  what do you think?  (cuz i know i'm a horrible judge after reading soooo many of those sappy fics where the two main characters cuddle in bed all the time....... also when I think "Life as we know it" sounds like a good film and sort of fangirling over the plot and the character settings..... but it's just too "substitutable", I couldn't resist xD)

Writer's Block: Star struck

Do you think celebrities deserve as much recognition, attention, and money as we, as a society, give them? What do you think it says about our cultural values?

it pisses me off so much when i see the time 100's most influential and IT'S ALL PPL FROM THE ENTERTAINMENT industry.

OK, so I guess i can't say that they aren't influential.......cuz they ARE, and pop culture is.  Sure acting and singing and partying all day and supporting a crazy lifestyle/personality may be hard work.  I just wish people that are actually making progress (doing stuff that not everyone can do), and working so hard on it, can get recognized.  I wish that it wasn't so much about personality and being better than everybody else, but more their long-term impacts on humans, on the world.

I just think society is very frivolous (including myself) and everyone wants attention for themselves.
