Do you know how long it's been since I've posted?! MONTHS! :O Here's to hoping I don't mess it up somehow.

(Also, on a personal note, I'd really like to thank all of you who have commented and emailed saying that you've missed me what with all the episodes I've not be there for. You have no idea how much it means to me and I appreciate the support as I've had some medical issues lately. I've missed jepcast more than I can articulate and promise to do my utmost to be here more often from now on. -- jennie)

once again with your guys obsession with picking people I know absolutely nothing about. umm.... Tsubasa,Tsubasa,Tsubasa.... what do I know about Tsubasa? He's one half of Tackey and Tsubasa, that's for sure. other than that...okay hold on, I looked him up (Kinda). SO, I tried listening to his solos and just couldn't seem to make it past the first 30 seconds no matter how many I tried, and when I saw a picture of him the first thought that went through my head was that for some reason he looked like a mix of Tegoshi and Toma. I looked at several pictures, and it still seemed that way. So now Whenever I think of Tsubasa I'm gonna think "That TomaTego Guy." which makes me feel bad. Cause I DO actually know his name. so yeah, my thoughts on Tsubasa.

Other comments:
you guys have a knack for making me feel Guiltily embarrassed. Peyton, I DO sing in bed...at night...with the lights off.. and sometimes in the afternoon when I'm just laying there ( although in my defence, never when I've just woken up) but yeah.

and when you were discussing the song puzzle and you talked about how Ryo really liked this one singer dude, Peyton I think it was said that Ryo FanGIRLed him. was that that on purpose? nobody else mentioned anything, but I'm almost positive that's what you said ( okay yeah, I went back and checked, it was DEFINITELY Fangirled) . Now unless, Ryo suddenly had a sex change I didn't know about, or I've been VERY oblivious in my fangirlism, I'm pretty sure Ryo is a Guy, right? so it should be FanBOYed right? I laughed so hard when I heard that,done on purpose or not.
Shit, this was freaking long. My apologies!

*butts in* 'fanboyed' isn't used much in the fandom, so I think out of habit, 'fangirl' is used. Using 'fangirled' also gives off a slightly different image I think. One of a guy acting like a crazed, happy fangirl, which could be the image she wanted to invoke. It doesn't have much to do with the 'sex' of the actual person.

oh okay. I was wondering why it was used and nobody reacted to it. that would make sense.
04 20 09 (UTC)
Yay all four girls are together! :D

I agree with Rhey! The Hanamaru Cafe jingle was always, 'it's just morning and I'm half asleep~" feeling! ♥

Kami, MatsuJun's sucking air threw his teeth bugs me too. I always notice it...

Okay, despite my dislike of K8 (and Subaru's voice) I'll give Puzzle a listen, okay? :D?

I don't care about Takki & Tsubasa much, but I always feel bad for Tsubasa. He seems to be the unloved one of the two. Takki is much more popular. I think Tsubasa is better looking though. Yeah, I could be totally wrong though.
04 21 09 (UTC)
Haha, um yeah. The mystery voicemailer is me...yeah...I was planning on saying who I was, but...I just forgot...xD

My impression of Tsubasa? I find Tackey much more...appealing. But, I still say that he is a great dancer and singer. But, seriously, I always feel as though Tackey gets more facetime. I know Tsubasa's just as talented, but it's like, he's sometimes more pushed back than Tackey. I feel bad for him about that...<333

Remember when you guys asked about tsuyoshi kusanagi and I said I literally have NO idea who he is? Well, what I remember about him now is that he went naked to a park, drunk, and was arrested for indecent exposure. ^_^ Yep, that'll do it (i.e. - making him memorable).
