aide: (Oh no I'm bored)
[personal profile] aide
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.

I think both Sho and Ohno solos are better because they move away from the pop genre. In my opinion.

I want them to go back to Typhoon Generation or hell even A-ra-shi just for the cuteness.

GOOD LUCK IN GETTING THE TICKETS! They should just do it like the US sells tickets.

They should, but we have realized that Japan is a weird (but not always so wonderful) place.

Conbini run before work.

Perhaps Arashi's image is too established now - the formulation is perfect.

YesAsia has informed me that my single has been shipped! Too bad that it'll be mailed to my family home since I thought that I might move :X

No A/C? I was always amazed by how students could study throughout the summer with fans (if they were lucky), coupled with the smell of the-toilets-that-cannot-be-flushed in the heat ...

Good luck with the tickets! I'm so jealous - the 上海 show is the day before my birthday D:

Shanghai! Ah... I should make a list, a serious list, of places to visit before I leave Japan. China is definitely near the top.

Yea.. our school is lucky that it catches a lot of breezes but that day was just not happening.

Sorry your flist has been boring lately. D: But I'm done with my fic and I'm gonna post it soon? As soon as I decide which version I'm posting, 'cause I wrote it in past and present tense, and while I normally prefer past, I'm on the fence with this one. Either way, I'm not sure I like it too much, but at least it's something to read? -shrug-

Good luck hitting for tickets! ^_^
