aide: (Oh no I'm bored)
My F-list has been boring the last few days and this is quite a disappointment.  Not the people on it becuase real life gets in the way but I find that interesting anyway but nothing severely interesting has been posted to my comms lately.  It's sad.  Maybe I just woke up hungry and on the wrong side of the futon this morning.  That's a possiblity. 

I got the One Love single(s) yesterday so I'm giving things a thorough listen.  I remember not being super sold on 冬を抱きしめて when I heard it for the first time but it  grew on me (I don't think it's possible for an Arashi song not to grow on you).  How to Fly has a nice Latin twist to it.  Interesting.  I was just saying to [profile] everystarrfall last night that I wish they were more experimental with their music: I love the techno/raver song Yes? No?, the jazz influence of COOL & SOUL or the hard rock ones like Pik*nchi and 五里霧中.  I love the cookie cutter J-pop, don't get me wrong, but I would like so see them branch out.  But I guess JE isn't about experimenting and growth, it's about packaging what sells in mountains of glitter, shiny and fur.  Oh well. 

Thank god that I have two free periods first thing.  Jun cancelled his classes today for self-study before the tests.  Imai-sensei won't, but I know she'll actually use me.  Kaneko-sensei's lessons yesterday (3 of them T_T) were the longest periods of my life.  They were just doing a review sheet and I went around marking and helping... but it was fucking hot and stuffy so I was uncomfortable as hell.  Makes 50 mins stretch that much farther.

Today is the day I'll go submit a ballot for tickets.  The 2nd show is on the same day as the Sports Festival... so I think I will just ballot for a pair for the Friday.  I really don't fancy running straight downtown after sweating all day without a break (the show is at 5:30pm... are we 12?  Actually... that's a very dumb question) and then maybe missing it or being late.  Not worth the hassle.  I'll ballot for a pair and see if I can't trick a certain closeted fanboy into coming with me.  Or sell it to some lonely fan at the gates.  Maybe I'll have met some other LJ fan friend to go with me by then.  Who knows.

Immigration tomorrow.  I'm extremely not excited.

Keitai mail from Arashi for their One Love release today~  I translated it at work... there are some parts (like.. most of it) that I'm not sure I did accurately but... meh.  I should actually go through all the Dream Alive ones I did because I'm sure I made mistakes and I finally know how what 過ぎ means.  It was a funny mail... Sho is such a freak.


櫻井:いよいよ本日発売します!嵐のニューシングル「One Love」。イメージカラーは白ですね。ウエディングドレスというか、つくしちゃんのイメージで!
S: Today it's released!  Arashi's new single "One Love".  The image colour is white, ne.  Something like a wedding dress, Tsukushi-chan's image!

松本:映画観たんすか?
M: Have you seen the movie?

櫻井:いや、まだです。でもファイナルですから。つくしちゃんを想いながら歌いました
S: No, not yet.  But it's the Final. I sang while thinking of Tsukushi-chan!

二宮:あなた、全然関係ないのに?
N: Does it have anything to do with you?

櫻井:全然関係ないですね(笑)。
S: Absolutely nothing at all. LOL

二宮:大野さんは?
N: What about Ohno-san?

大野:…なんだろなぁ。
O: I wonder…

相葉:僕は薄い黄色っぽいイメージで!
A: For me, it's a light yellowish image!

二宮:僕はピンクですかね。
N: For me it's pink.

松本:僕は虹色。色っていうより、虹。
M: For me it's rainbow.  Of all the colours, it's rainbow.

櫻井:虹そのものってことですね。聴き方としては、やっぱ映画を思い返しながら聴いてもらいたいですね。
S: It is kind of rainbowy, right?  As for the way you should listen to it, you'll be thinking back on the movie when you listen to it.

松本:あなた、出てないですよね?いや、そう言ってもらえるのはありがたいっすけど(笑)。
M: You weren't in it, right?  No, but when you say it like that, it's appreciated. LOL

二宮:そう想って歌ったってことなんだよね。翔ちゃんは。
N: Sho-chan even thought of it that when we sang.

櫻井:そうです!
S: That's right!

大野:俺は、まず聴いて、次どんな風に聴きたいかを考えてほしい。
O: For me, first listen to it, and then I want you to think in what kind of way do you want to listen to it.

櫻井:まず、聴いてから!
S: At first, listen to it!

大野:聴いてから、2回目聴く時に、自分はどういう風に聴きたいかというのを。
O: Listen to it first, and when you hear it for the 2nd time, it's something like, "In what kind of way do I want to listen to it"?

二宮:自分で。
N: By yourself.

大野:考えてほしい。
O: I want you to think about it.

相葉:ああ~なるほど!!
A: Aa~ I see!!

大野:聞き方はあなた次第!!
O: The way of listening is up to you!!

相葉:僕はなんか、どんな時でも合うと思いますよ!失恋している人が聴いても前向きになれるし、幸せ~って満たされている人が聴いても、力になるなっと思って。
A: For me, its like, anytime fits!  Even if a brokenhearted person listens, they can become positive, or if a person filled with happiness listens, they can get power from it, I think.

松本&二宮&大野&櫻井:おお~!
M&N&O&S: OO~!

松本:嵐の曲として捉えると、すごく新鮮だと思うんですよね。こんなに、愛について歌っている曲って…。超ベタだと思うからこそ。そんなことない?
M: It's a really catchy as an Arashi song, and I think it's really fresh.  It's a song singing about love… It's super-beta, I think, for sure.  Isn't it?

相葉:そんなことある。
A: It does seem like that.

二宮:もう一歩踏み込んだ感じはあるよね。
N: It feels like another step breaking through, ne.

松本:「花より男子2」主題歌の「Love so sweet」より深まった感じ。"so so sweet"だね。
M: It feels deeper than the theme for Hana Yori Dango 2, "Love so sweet".  It's "so so sweet".

相葉:SO!SO!そーだね!
A: SO! SO! Yeaaaaah!

櫻井:「One Love」は"Love so sweet FINAL"や!
S: "One Love" is "Love so sweet FINAL" ya!

松本:なんで関西弁だったんだろう、今(笑)。そういえば初回限定盤に入るよね?
M: What's with the Kansai accent, just now? LOL  Which reminds me, what's on the Limited Edition?

二宮:リミックスね!「FINAL Remix feat.WISH,Love so sweet&One Love」。
N: Remix!  "FINAL Remix feat. WISH, Love so sweet & One Love".

櫻井:花男メドレー!
S: HanaDan medley!

松本:あれ、オレ好きだな。
M: I like that.

櫻井:1回でね、「花より男子」の歴史をおさらいできるっていう曲に。
S: You can see the history of Hana Yori Dango all in one go in that song.

二宮:なんともお得な。
N: It's quite economical.

松本:でも"FINAL Remix"って…。今までリミックスしたことねぇのに(笑)。
M: But a "Final Remix"… Until now we've never done a remix. LOL

二宮:このリミックスは最初だけどファイナルだよーって。
N: This remix is the first but also the final.

櫻井:今までないっちゃあ、なかったからね(笑)。CDになるっていうのは。
S: There's never been one because we haven't done one, til now. LOL  At least that's been put out on a CD.

松本:ね。オレは好きです。"花男"好きな人は是非とも初回盤買っていただきたい。でも、嵐好きな方には通常盤の「How to fly」も聴いてもらいたい。
M: Right? I like it.  People who love HanaDan will definitely buy the LE.  But people who love Arashi will want to hear the RE's "Learn to fly". 

相葉&大野:あぁ~!!
A&O: Aa~!!

櫻井:迷うな。
S: Don't hesitate.

二宮:どっちか迷うなぁ。
N: Don't hesitate for which?

櫻井:じゃー2つ買っちゃう?
S: Well, buy both?

相葉:そうしようか。
A: Shall we do that?

大野:買うしかないね。
O: Won't you buy them?

櫻井:買わざるを得ないよな。
S: You can't help but buy them.

二宮:うん!!
N: Yup!!

松本:是非(笑)!!
M: Buy them!! LOL
