Short Posts

Have not been in a genki/cheerful mood for the past few days. I will be fine in a few days time. I will still post entries, but just the main info that I get. Sorry for the really short posts and 1-liners.

3 within about a year's span. Everything I did felt so familiar and it is so totally wrong to feel this way. It's not like I want to feel this way. I do not have a choice. Everyone around me were so surprised. Usually, someone around my age range would not be familiar with such things. I know this is inevitable. But I hope it doesn't happen, at least not in the near future.

NHK StudioPark (050322)

(editted @ 3AM)

Takki appeared on NHK StudioPark on Tuesday (050322). I only got a short part of it (02:22). But it's the essence I think. They showed Takki's appearance on NHK StudioPark when he was 15 years old, doing a dance!!!! So cute!!!!!

When the hosts first tell Takki that they are going to show Takki's appearance on NHK StudioPark when he was only a 15yr old boy, Takki's expression went from shocked to embarrassed to anxious. (& anticipative?) I think he was worried also, didn't really know what to expect.

The VTR is from 1997.5.5 NHK StudioPark.

15-yr old Takki enters through a side-door when the hosts of StudioPark introduces him. He looks soooo excited and raises both hands in the air repeatedly as the live audience cheers and screams loudly. Takki was so excited that he forgot to close the door after that!!! Then the female host says, "Kawaii desu ne~~~" (Of course yo! It's Takizawa!!! ) Then the scene cuts to Takki standing at a side of the couch and the 2 hosts watching him. Music starts and Takki starts moving to the beat of the music as if in preparation before the start of a dance. (In the inset, we can see 22yr-Takki laughing hysterically at 15yr-Takki. ) And then Takki starts dancing to the music!! Takki was so embarrassed that he said, "Yamete kore~~!!!"

TAKIZAWA, YOU ERO ERO JIJI-SAN!!! (at 15 yrs old!!!)

After the VTR ended, Takki was so embarassed. But all the hosts and other guests were like, "Sugoi desu ne~~~~" And of course Takki couldn't stop grinning!!!!!!!!!! Ahh.... Takki's grin!!! Kawaii~~~~~ Takki was so hot from the embarrassment that he had to use his hands to fan himself!! Takki was like, "Hazukashii~~~" and "Bikkurishita~~~"

01:29. They showed a spilt second of the live audience. The ones lucky enough to sit on chairs inside the studio were mainly middle-aged women. And the majority of the fans were watching from outside the glass window. Btw, I saw 2 handdrawn potraits of Yoshitsune which fans held to the glass window.

I wonder if anything else interesting happened after that? The clip I have ends shortly after the VTR. Hmm.... I do have StudioPark on my cable. But the schedule for the airing of StudioPark is totally unearthly!!!! If I am still a student, I would still be able to watch it because I sleep at insane times. But as a OL now, I can't afford to. StudioPark airs @ about 4+ PM and 4+ AM on my cable. Hmm.... I have to move my butt and seriously schedule some timer recordings!!! I have to utilise my NHK channel more yo!!!

第158章 - 滝連合

第158章 - 滝連合 (050321)

そこから曲を決めて、ある程度の流れを作るのよ!! !!




Ostukarechan!! Phew, such a longgggg Takiren!!!!! Please excuse my extremely limited knowledge of the Japanese language. Nere will definitely have a much better translation. (erm, actually, mine is not even a translation. It's more of a summary. ) Ok, bascially, Takki mentions about how he found out about the concert. Johnny-san told (more of commanded actually) him, " YOU are doing a concert na yo!!" (Eh?? Mata? Has Johnny now decided to spring a surprise on his artistes about their concerts?? Or is it just Takki & Tsuba? ) He also says that the concert schedule this time is difficult. Therefore, the preparations for this concert are taihen. Various preparations, among others, is to think about the venue, general outline composition of the concert etc. He is thinking a lot about one's image and mentioned the example of using fire (I think he is referring to his image last year, where Takki had a fire at his "T" and Tsubasa had a wing at his "T"). He also mentioned about using stage props to match one's image. This time, there is little time to decide and prepare the design of the costumes.

And guess what? Takki wants us to buy the concert tee and wear it at the concert. So, there will DEFINITELY be a concert tee again this year. Hai Takki, iyo, we will buy and wear it yo!!! But you have to have SMALLER SIZES!!!! Most of your fans are females!!! The sizes were humongous last year!! We were all literally swimming in the tee!!!! I really wana wear the tee to go out but it's so huge!!! So till date, I have only worn it about 3 times?

And he asks if everyone in Fukouka safe because there was quite a strong earthquake there yesterday. (Near to 7 on the Richter Scale) And he mentioned about the previous Niigata earthquake and tells everyone to ganbarre. Hmm.... mata charity and Takki as charity-ambassador?? Like an angel sent to them from heaven. Ii ne~~~~~ You are going to make many school children in Fukouka very very happy. Lucky school children again. Sigh.

KAMEN!!! (ToBase 050317)

I LOVE KAMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OMG!!! It's really very very good!!!! (Besides the fact that it's going to be used as the theme song for Mask 2 ) But the song sounds GREAT and to me, that is all that matters!!!!!

Tsubasa played Takitsuba's upcoming new single's song Kamen on tonight's ToBase. He played the whole song!!! It's really very good! I liked it the first time I heard it already. Love at First Hearing!!! And this time, you can really hear it so much more clearly on ToBase and feel the vibes of the song! And I can hear Takki singing!!! This is a UNIT song!!! Unit songs should be sung by BOTH of them!! I mean, the live version from the baseball game was only Tsubasa singing and there was alot of background sounds from the audience screaming as well. So, tonight is really the first time I heard Kamen so clearly!!! Like what Jenn said, I too feel that the first time the fans hear a new unit song, it should be properly sung by BOTH of them! This way, fans would be able to get the right impressions and feelings for the song.

Kamen is 5.02 mins long. The chorus is the best!!!! Upbeat and dance song!! Yata!!! PV dase!!!! Hayaku!!!!! I want AND need to know the dance movements!!!! Hmmmm..... so this single includes 2 theme songs ne? Kamen for Mask 2 and Mirai Koukai for One Piece. Actually, both songs do sound right for a movie/anime. I wonder what props are Takitsuba going to use for Kamen. Really interested to find out after listening to the song!! It's really upbeat!!! And I am sure they have to use a prop that is somehow in relation to the movie desho? Like how they used shawls and bit the shawls at the end of singing One Day, One Dream because ODOD was used for Inuyasha, to depict a dog biting something. Erm, for Kamen.... masks??? But how are the fans going to deal with masks? If we are going to cover our faces with masks, we wouldn't be able to keep our eyes glued on Takitsuba yo!!!!

皆さん!!! Have you pre-ordered your THREE versions of Kamen + Mirai Koukai single yet?? Kamen really sounds good!!! Plus after hearing it, my head just automatically imagines scenes from the PV. Sorry I cant concentrate on listening to the rest of ToBase to hear properly what Tsubasa said, much less translate it. Too engrossed with Kamen now.

Takki Rengo No. 157 (050312)

想像以上に深いよー♪ 今週は義経撮影も大変だけど頑張るぞ!!

P.S. ちゃんとカレンダー見た?
Speaking of haru (spring), there are still many cold days ne.
The cold is also spreading around.
Everyone, please take of yourselves before the concert ne.
Erm, and he says that the preparations for the previous concerts are easier but this time is difficult yo. (Sorry I can't do an accurate translation here.)
This time, everyone wants to sing and dance along too yo ne?
I will do my best.
Next time, should I wait till the concert is possible before I say something!?
Things will be seen from a different view then.
Imagination is so deep yo
This week is Yoshitsune shooting so it's taihen but ganbaruzo!!
PS: You have seen the calendar?
Takki is the best salesman to boost sales for anything T&T related!!! He always ask if we have heard the new song, seen Yoshitsune, seen dvd, seen calendar etc..... Ahh, I can't really do a direct translation for some of it. Please excuse my poor Japanese language.
