               ▪ STAR RIDER'S AWESOME! But Birth might be better? lol
               ▪ The lyrics to star rider makes no sense, sort of.
               ▪ Birth is a blend of jazz and rock, lyrically & muscially fits Yokai Ningen Bem perfectly.
               ▪ Baby b Mine, Act on Emotion are average KAT-TUN songs. Kinda unforgettable.
               ▪ The Star Rider PV is kind of fitting for the song? But they could have spent more money.
               ▪ KAT-TUN are really sexy in the Star Rider PV.
               ▪ The Birth PV is kinda nonsensical, too. What's with the buildings? Kame is sleeping? WHY?

               ▪ Watching Yokai NIngen Bem would help make sense of the PV even more.

               ▪ M & R kinda love this. Fujigaya & Tamamori are like, really good looking.
               ▪ The focus on the front three is really disappointing/annoying.

               ▪ Sho's pants were really bothersome.
               ▪ Arashi's energy was good~ felt like a real concert.
               ▪ The more they perform Meikyu Love Song, the better it sounds.
               ▪ Taguchi starting Keep The Faith was awful. Augh. Birth was so much better.
               ▪ KAT-TUN look like bees/lady bugs.
               ▪ SUZUKI FUKU!!!!!!!!!! KAT-TUN & Sho dancing Maru Maru Mori Mori with Fuku-kun~
               ▪ Kaibutsu-kun & Ohno are two different people, definitely.
               ▪ Kanjani8's perf was more of the same stuff. Ryo's lack of happyface bothers Peyton.
               ▪ HSJ wants to make mother complex more popular again..?

also omg look at my inability to fix my typos
12 10 11 (UTC)
I saw on facebook that Hey say jump and kat-tun's percentages on Best artist might of been switched.
12 12 11 (UTC)
That would make sense, considering KAT-TUN's was 50% female ages 10-19...
12 12 11 (UTC) - Thoughts! I has them!
I was one of the ones who thought the KAT-TUN PV for "Birth" was boring but it didn't click until Rhey (I think) said it - the music didn't match the visuals. There was a weird disconnect between the upbeat tempo of the song and the slo~ooow narrative pacing. But I like "Birth" as a song a lot.

Interesting conversation on the relative merits of different artist's PV Makings-Of. I actually prefer the ones that are more about the actual mechanics of making a PV because I find that stuff interesting. How many takes do they need to do of choreography? How hard is it to lip-sync to a certain part of a song? How boring does it get just waiting around? I like being a fly on the wall for all of that. I would even love it if JE took a look at what Bollywood is doing for their song makings-of and get interviews with the choreographers and song-writers, too.

Ohno/Kaibutsu-kun: First of all, I love how Ohno says his own name. Second of all, I guess it just shows us how much the "public" personas of idols are developed in relation to the idols around them. Ohno might have ended up having a different "face" so to speak if he had joined a different group. Still, I'm loving the Ohno promos! Although he must not have had much time to learn the Meikyu choreography.

Lastly, nobody mentioned Sho's epic reaction shots on Best Artist. I was LOLing so hard every time they cut away to him and he would be giggling or scratching his nose.

ALSO! Kisumai 3/4... I hope Peyton is right and we'll see a flattening out because I want all the group.
