Show Notes:

▪ Japanese programming on American television, ooh la la. *_*

JE NEWS (4:46)

  ■ New single, Beautiful Days: onetwothreefourfive.
  ▪ Lol, everyone has trouble saying Wasurerarenai.
  ▪ Peyton loves this single, but Kami, not so much. Yay, balance?
  ▪ Has Aiba done nothing this year???

  ■ Beautiful Days PV: onetwothree.
  ▪ OMG I want those pretty lights for my room; who cares about practicality!!
  ▪ MatsuJun's hair looks horrible; he looks like a girl-- a girl with a terrible bowl cut.

  ■ Nino on Channel Rock: onetwo.
  ▪ Nino doesn't cook, does too much magic, values bonds of friendship over romance, etc.

  ■ Hey!Hey!Hey! appearance: onetwothree.
  ▪ HIDEOUS AIBA PANTS. What does wearing this potato sack have anything to do with feelings of nostalgia???
  ▪ Aiba splits open his pants! Nino helps rip the hole bigger!
  ▪ Arashi proves they don't suck at their own game.
  ▪ No one tells Aiba their secrets! Even though he's supposedly a good secret keeper.

  ■ Utaban appearance: onetwo.
  ▪ Arashi are the teacher's pet on Utaban; they get the longer interviews.
  ▪ Arashi performs in Korean and Mandarin, with various levels of success...
  ▪ Aiba goes "hm hm hm hm." Might as well have been going "watermelon watermelon."
  ▪ Sho sets his ringtones to Arashi songs and then is embarrassed for it, lol.
  ▪ Toda Erika has nothing to say to Nakai, because, according to Ohno, she "doesn't like Nakai." Cue fight.
  ▪ Recounting of ~The Hakone Trip~ that Arashi's talked to death by now.

  ■ Music Station appearance: onetwo.
  ▪ Ohno is the Japanese Harry Potter!
  ▪ Perf is boring, but, uhh, pretty sets?
  ▪ MatsuJun likes to molest Ohno's knee.

  ■ Aiba and Hina (KANJANI8) have butais: onetwothree.
  ▪ Peyton is dying.

  ■ Massu and Nakamaru to star in drama together: onetwothreefourfivesix.
  ▪ Rescue rangers? Power Rangers? It's morphin time?
  ▪ Massu's charatcer's name, likey, is not Shigeru, and thus, won't be called Shige, okay?
  ▪ Firemen version of Code Blue?
  ▪ Massu eating nikuman. (This is an official invitation to cynicalism to skin Peyton. \:D/)
  ▪ OMG, promos with Maru and Massu! *_*
  ▪ Speculation on who'll be doing the theme song...

Kansai Juniors
  ■ Concert schedule: one.
  ▪ Yamazaki Kunta-- I have nothing to say. Peyton takes it to the gutter.

DRAMA TALK (41:19)
  ■ Tiger & Dragon SP.
  ▪ Five minutes with Peyton-sensei: summarizing T&D, explaining rakugo, elaborating on casting, fangirling over Itoh Misaki, etc.
  ▪ The clever method of story telling employed by this drama is very impressive.
  ▪ Tora's (Nagase) image: the yakuza with a big dick.
  ▪ OMAE NO KAACHAN!!!!! (your mom)
  ▪ Capsule hotel! It looks so cool. *_*
  ▪ Nagase's too good at playing this Yakuza-type character. Feels like Toraji was written specifically for him.
  ▪ Peyton talks some more about Itoh Misaki...as expected.
  ▪ next time: Tiger & Dragon, episodes 1-4!

  ■ this week's question: What would you like to see the JE boys dress up as for Halloween?

I feel terrible I haven't been able to listen lately, but I do keep an eye for new posts. <3


My impression of Tesshi. At first he was the cutie I kept getting confused with Shige cause at the time I got into NEWS, they both hand longish hair so it was easy for me to get them confused. Now he's this adorable god like cutie whose smile always makes me happy, even if Notti's my favorite.

I look forward to listening to this tomorrow and learning what this is about...
11 10 08 (UTC)

11 10 08 (UTC)
Dies. That fic...Which will never see the light of day!

11 10 08 (UTC)
oops, my bad. thanks for catching that one. have fixed with the proper link now. :D

Another great episode girls!

It makes me sad that our digital cable makes us pay if we want Japanese tv ;o;

Ahh Tegoshi. My impression of Tegoshi is he knows he's adorable and he using the whole bring the youngest thing to his advantage (sorry Shige...). Because he is an idol I can look past his fault of being harmlessly selfish but if I knew someone like that in person I don't know if I would put up with it. I'm kinda sad he has grown to be kinda slutty when he was such a cute, innocent kid that dressed badly. I wish he keep his hair shorter too >.>;;;

My first impression was that, OMG, WHY IS HE SO PRETTY! HE'S PRETTIER THAN ME AND ANYONE IN MY SCHOOL!! It's such a sin. ;_; (I first saw him in the Weeeek PV and back then, his hairstyle made him look so girly) His vocals are amazing to me that it sends chills down my spine when I hear him hit high notes o.O I respect him a lot for many reasons; He debut as NEWS after just 8 months in JE, he's innocently self-centered, he laughs as hard as he wants without being aware of who's around him, whatever brave challenges he takes on on ItteQ, yadayada. xDDD Although he has grown to be so-called Tegoslut, I still love him for his dorkiness~

There's nothing that I dislike about him, really. Oh wait, maybe he should stop changing his hairstyle so often *__*

11 11 08 (UTC) - Re: your suggestion
your bias. It totally doesn't show. lol If we'd done something like that, we would've started THIS season with Ryuusei no Kizuna, yo.
