I did get the Katamari reference.

Hey Peyton,
Can you friend me back and can i follow you on twitter?

If I had the money/if he wasn't coming to NY during school I'd so go. But alas....D:

Onto the question: Yume Monogatari is actually the song that got me into T&T. :) Granted, I'm not the biggest fan, but they're at least represented in my playlist.

This PV seems a little bit on the basic side to me, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. I like how they made it look like they're performing, and I really want to know the reaction when the ad for extras went up for this PV. I also like that the chorus dance is simple enough to pick up quickly. It makes for a good time when you're home alone and there's nothing else to do. :) However I don't like how the PV spazzes at the beginning. It was a little too flashy and it made me a wee bit dizzy. I also don't like their pimp jackets (but I do like Tsubasa in the white shirt and black tie).

Also, at :06-:07, is that girl waving around a pair of panties? If so that's a bit...awkward.

wahhh~ I sound funny lol. I guess recording an audio message at 3 in the morning isn't the best idea? if i record another one I'll have to do it in the daytime so i'm not half asleep. will hopefully be back with an answer for this weeks letter seg.

This is one of my favorite Tackey & Tsubasa songs, the PV is a little basic and I am not a fan of the big jackets either but the other outfits were very good. This is one of their earlier PV's so perhaps that is why its a little basic. However it is a very fun PV and definitely a song you need to listen to if you like Tackey & Tsubasa even just a little bit.

I would also like to draw your attention to this video, it is known as the infamous Tackey & Tsubasa video, its from an early performance of Yume Monogatari on Music Station. I assume this episode happened sometime during August of 2003 or after because I believe that is when the song was released. I don't know exactly what episode this is from because I have not been able to track down the original episode.



Basically what ends up happening here is at the end of the video Tackey takes off his shirt (aka he strips). Tsubasa was supposed to strip along with Tackey but he betrayed Tackey for some reason. I am pretty sure the audience is shouting "take it off" during the song (or the japanese version of that phrase). I don't know everything but that is what I was told they were shouting. Needless to say when I think of Yume Monogatari, the only thing I can think of is this video.
