LOL ~ you totally spelled my name wrong in the show notes XD.

i just had to say that before i go and listen to the episode and decide if i really do need to rally the cuticle cult to skewer you.
04 17 10 (UTC)
Okay, yes, I do really think I need to sick the Cuticle Cult on you.

Ummm, Peyton? How does, “you know, its Aiba.” automatically equal, fail on such a level that you feel sorry for some one?

There are many things that Aiba is. Awesome, funny, cute, hardworking, amazing, handsome, caring, kind, and a plethora of other wonderful descriptive words that can never quite seem to capture the true essence of Aiba perfectly, for he is above mere human language, but cringe-worthy fail? THAT’S NOT ONE OF THEM.

Aiba’s English is sometimes fail, but it’s the cute kind, the ~omg I want to hug him~ kind, not the shuddering ~omg that was horrible kind~. The kind that makes you love him even more ~if such a thing is possible~, the kind that makes you say “I wish he was the one representing my own language”.

That is the truth of the matter. Not that I’d expect you to understand for you are not of the Great Cuticle Cult of Our Lord Aiba, but what can you do for the non-believers?

May you one day see the error of your ways, and upon that day come to us for forgiveness, and receive it. For as I already stated, Our Lord Aiba is a kind god. NOT CRINGE-WORTHY FAIL.

XD lol JK JK, I’m not gonna crucify you….. this time any way.

I have more to say but I think I’ll separate it out into separate comments so that you’re not assaulted with a wall of text.

sooooo anyways, about the actual episode, can i just say that one I'm not even gonna feel guilty for being happy that Tohoshinki was contending extremely well against NEWS. 'Cause My love for Tohoshinki is second or about equal to my love for Arashi, my Favourite, JE group.

and I loved the way Rhey read out my comment, it was hilarious~ was i really that harsh Kami? (omg lol i'm just let you know that is my little sister's nickname too,except with a C, so every time i say or write your name i think of her, sorry, it's been in my mind for forever i finally had to let it out... XD)

like I said, I suffer from no shortage of massu love, and tegoshi was my original favourite of NEWS before Massu, pushed him out of first, and then koyama snuck into second, and Shige claimed third. so still is at fourth, for me, more that Yamapi and Ryo any way, lol.

what else..... oh yeah, Ueda~ You may not know this but my love for ueda very nearly rivals my love for Aiba, and Ueda is definitely my second favourite in JE. i'm just not as vocal because my real life best friend is a huge KAT-TUN fan and so she gets to hear the majority of Ueda flail. but she deosn't like arashi soooo....you get Aiba. lol

So i think that this news is soooooooo cute. I'm just wondering if we get any more news that if you think there will an official announcement or something like that from the jimusho? what age do the boys generally get to be officially or publicly dating people? i'm not all that sure really, for all my two years in fandom XD. I just wanted to know your thoughts on the matter. What do you think will happen, on the assumption that they are actually dating, which it sure seems to be that they are?

Letter seg question next XD

So like i like this song A LOT but, i've never actuslly seen the pv so yeah, acutally i've not seen a lot pv's except for arashi, news, kj8 and KAT-TUN. so here goes.

Before I start anything, im gonna state i don't actually know anyone beyond Nsgase so....yeah. actually i'm writing this as i watch so you're getting my running commentary on the video.

Guy with the long hair, kinda reddish? He doesn't match, like his hair with his face, I like his hair but it seems off. that's my stuck in the head thought for this pv. who is he By the way?

OMG i''m getting a Vampire vibe with Pv, witht he set? it seems kinda Victorian English doesn't it? I really like it, although i'm not sure how well it matches the song...

well, after looking up the lyrics i can say that i like it, it seems fitting almost like they're waiting out that storm in that house unable to go any where until it clears up or they are able to make themselves face it. Very nice. fitting.

Nagase looks really hot lounging back in that chair and playing his guitar. i think that he needs a glass of red wine or something to really pull that vampire look together.

OMG n did nagase just put lipstick on the mannequin? thats so WEIRD

but a thought just occurred to me, not only are they stuck in the house but im getting the vibe like they've been there for a long time, unable to leave, and that if or when they do they'll step out to find it's hundreds of years after they first came there. ironic considering the title is "mr.Traveling man" but hey, i like that idea. irony is delicious.

The swaying of the camera is really interesting thing. in certain shots like when they are are focusing on them playing instruments, it sway like its on a boat. and sometimes that camera motion blurs as well. all in all that makes me a little bit dizzy. all that camera movement also makes me think of traveling now that i think of it, with the constant movement, traveling from one moment to the next. interesting.

I'm also finding the dark shadowed lighting of the pv very interesting, fitting in a way with the lyrics, and my original idea of them being trapped there. that way that the outside, the windows are much brighter factors in as well. like all they have to do is leave and things will keep getting better. once again kinda connecting to the lyrics.

oh oh! there sure are a lot of dolls/mannequins in this pv. I think that they really are important to the idea of the song. Kinda the opposite of what is trying to be portrayed in the song in a way. human-like but not human, unmoving, unchanging, never going anywhere, or making any progress, and the only things that happen to them are those things that are people or beings do to them. they're never in control of their own lives.

and the candle, it's kinda representing a beacon of hope a light to move towards as well. you see it re occurring through out the pv. and i kinda thought of it that way.

I like the shot of nagase? i think any way, when the leaves are floating up instead of falling down. are you traveling backwards mister traveling man? that's not gonna get you anywhere. not only are you going backwards but nothing you did previously was important because you're just sitting there doing nothing as time is rewound.

also there are a lot of clocks in this pv, more time imagery for you!

finally at the end we makes some progress with the leaves falling down the right way. maybe they'll finally start moving on and stop living in the past, right?

maybe i'm just read Waaaaaaaaayyyyy~ to much into the pv. I totally analyzed like a preliminary draft for a school essay, lol.

nice, i rather liked this pv. and nagase's hair. it was niiiiiiiiice.

okay i think im done. did i write enough?
