On my daily runs of intlwota today, I run into the news that Arihara Kanna is out of commision. At first as I read it, I thought Kanna had some horrible scandal that just broke her membership in a day. She was in a scandal-ish kind thing in the summer, if we all remember. But as I read on it was about bunions. I vaguely knew what this was about but for times like these, Wikipedia is your friend ^_^. For a normal person, just stopping and “treating” it would be fine. But considering this is an idol we are talking about, I have no problem believing that they get next to no sleep/rest from their busy schedules. Did you know that some of the girls do radio shows? It sure didn’t occur to me what kind of schedule they had until watching Mechaike’s field trip special with Momusu way back when.

Well, I woke up extremely early because of a nosebleed so I figured I had the time to write today. Lol… I wonder what caused the nosebleed, I’ve been around on H!O’s picboard recently. Actually found some nice pictures, that I decided to grab. Eyecandy!
One of the few pictures of Koharu that I like. Her hair is nice.
Maybe I had a nosebleed subconsciously because of Airi. She’s on my wallpaper too… XD
I was going to do a review of Buono!’s new album since I have been listening to it for the past couple of days. But I’ll hold off on that. There are many reviews I’d like to write honestly. But staying up for 27 hours straight really does something to you ^_^;

Well, I accidentally fell asleep and left my torrent on so my internet is going to get banned for a couple days. But that’s perfect, I suppose, considering I have exams and stuff to study for. This week, I thought long (roughly 10 minutes) and hard (I kept repeating the track before it would stop) about this week’s song. To celebrate the release of Buono! 2 this song of the week will be a song from there. To tell you the truth, I’m being really lazy and getting rid of my review for one of the tracks XD. This week’s song is Kiss! Kiss! Kiss! by Buono. Read the rest of this entry »

Over the past 2 weeks in addition to school and the such, I was watching J-drama and neglecting my blog. Well… not that I already neglect my blog to begin with. So I randomly got ahold of 14sai no Haha and noticed that one of the supporting characters was Kitamura Kazuki. If anyone around is a fan of J-drama, Kitamura was the evil villian in the Densha Otoko DX special as well as the ongoingly awesome antagonist in akihabara@deep. I enjoyed those two dramas very much and decided I would watch 14sai for the hell of it to see what he would be like in it.
This is just a quick review, and there are spoilers if you read on. For the spoiler-less version just don’t click “read more”.
The story is about an average 14 year old who winds up pregnant and how she deals with the consequences of such. That’s the story in one sentence basically. There’s drama to be had with the whole “father” and actually “having” the baby. Obviously, for the sake of drama it’s not an 11 episode drama about abortion. It’s not really a spoiler about her decision to keep the baby, more like a sensible one. But how she makes her decisions and how she deals with it is the drama.
I enjoyed it. And I do have some nitpicks but it was enjoyable. It didn’t make me flood my room with tears like 1Litre did but it was really heartfelt. I liked most of the actor/resses and the music was excellent. I’m quite satisfied with watching the drama and felt the time I wasted instead of doing homework was well spent ^_^; If you haven’t watched it already and are interested in J-dramas about sad/controversial topics, then give this one a try. It really was quite good!

Alas, I write a post! I am alive. To tell you the truth, I wanted to write but just didn’t for most of today. Well, I should say yesterday, since it is now Monday. I have a class in a little less than 7 hours. But I’m staying up listening to a live audio feed of COT4 since my roommate is there and he’s STILL in the running, so I feel like being a good roommate and listening and cheering him on. I know that has nothing to do with the song of this week. So without further adieu, this song is a song I’ve just been listening to a lot lately.
Buono’s “Hoshi no Hitsuji Tachi” has been playing on repeat on Winamp a lot, over the past couple days.
