Airi + Yo-Yo’s = <3

22 04 2009

I was bored and didn’t want to study so…

My friend showed me a picture of Reon Kadena (go look her up) which coincidentally looked a lot like a yo-yo picture I was looking at.

So I got this GREAT idea!

Airicandy in itself was already like an evolution of eyecandy (Lv 25)

Now this… Airicandy relating to yo-yo eyecandy… it’s like a fusion of 2 of my favorite things! For those who don’t know, I’m a fan of yo-yoing and also like to (even though it puts a great dent in my wallet) collect rare and pretty yo-yos. The pictures ahead are of my own personal collection. Don’t know how many other yo-yoing enthusiasts there are out there… but believe me they are pretty!

So without further ado, picspam!

 S7301009 Speeder-1

YoYoJam Speeder
I don’t have caps on it and it has some battlescars, but it used to be one of my mains.

Airi Speeder
To be honest, the hotpants combined with the top are what really make her co.no.mi.chi outfit resemble my Speeder. But I like these pics ^_^

 

Agent Orange Fade Project-1 S7301067

OneDrop YoYo’s Agent Orange Fade Project
This is a very rare yo-yo. Though I no longer have it, I still have some pictures. It was hard if not impossible to find pictures that would match this.
So a little imagination and appreciation is needed.

I included the Buono 2 pics because I LOVE her hair.
Who cares if it doesn’t match the pic. Airicandy is good in any flavor ^o^.

She’s 3x cuter than a regular C-ute member (points if anyone gets the reference)
It was hard to find her in something that matched the magenta of my Meteor…

Thinking of Ayumi

12 04 2009

Hamasaki Ayumi. The J-pop queen of the world.

I am at heart a big fan of Ayumi Hamasaki. In fact, I regard listening to Ayu as the biggest turning point in my musical preferences. But there’s that saying, all good things must come to an end.

Admittedly, I’m not into her more recent releases. This is particularly the case with the last 2 albums, Next Level and Guilty. I don’t know. Maybe I’ve grown out of it? Or her evolution (haha) has reached the point where it is beyond my musical tastes.

I am mostly a fan of pop music. By pop, I don’t mean popular (though in a way I do listen to most of the really popular acts, Ayu of course being the one in scrutiny here). I mean pop music. I don’t really know how to classify it but I’ve found that it’s just usually feel good music, ballads, and in general music that doesn’t OBVIOUSLY fit into other genres. For example, rock music is clearly rock, but Lite rock you could say verges into pop music. Rap is obviously rap, but it can have some pop overtones that make it blend in with a sound that you’d expect from pop music. Metal … yea, well that’s always metal unless it’s 2 separate songs fused into one. You get the point.

That being said, I was mainly attracted to listening to Ayu’s pop (and in a way pop-rock) music during her I am… era. Her music was uplifting and in a way listening to her music didn’t feel the same with other songs. I felt like listening to her music sparked something in me.

So what happened? I got into other artists and I’ve taken a broader taste of music. I now enjoy listening to K-pop, J-rap, and some J-rock. I’m a fan of the huge idol factory, Hello! Project. I listen to Perfume with their electropop gimmick. And so on. Her newer releases… I could say it started around the time of My Story. It got more of a rock edge that didn’t excite me as much.

I want to convince myself that I still love Ayu. I just love an Ayu that is at this point older and releasing different things. Yea… that’s it.

I just had to get that off my chest. I have tried my best to avoid listening to Next Level, until I’m ready. I still think of Ayu as my love and my favorite singer. The only problem is that the time period I loved her is long gone. So it’s like… dwelling on the past.

*sigh* why did I write this again?





An Observation about The Legend of Zelda

10 04 2009

I’m a video gamer. My allegiance is mainly to Nintendo, it’s mainly the console I play and also mainly the company that I look forward to. That being said some thoughts occurred to me recently pertaining The Legend of Zelda.

Spirit Tracks, or whatever it’s called
Really?? Let’s exclude the possibility that this game will be awesome. A train??? How did that happen? I wasn’t quite fully aware that Hyrule or wherever Link is (maybe he’s in medieval Britain looking for Sonic with his sword) was in the industrial age. While I guess there have been rail tracks for trolleys in other games, I’ve never seen any indication for such a technology in Zelda. Maybe, I’m not thinking hard enough…

Also, has anyone noticed (correct me if I’m wrong) that apparently Link can understand English. If every version of Ocarina of Time uses the original voices, it’s very clear that Navi uses English words. She says, “Listen”, “Look!”, “Watch out!”. Assuming Link understands this, this must mean that Link can understand English or Engrish.

That’s a real breakthrough in my understanding of LOZ…
