hi!! i just finished listening to this podcast and would to share my thoughts on KAT-TUN's EXPOSE single (which i sometimes call the SOLIO single, it having 4 out 6 songs used for SOLIO commercials)..i agree with most of your opinion on the PV's..don't like EXPOSE PV, like Connect & Go more.. i like the EXPOSE the song but you're right on the b-sides..love all the b-sides on this..

you mentioned about ueda making a cameo on nakamaru's Snowflake PV..its part of the on going KAT-TUN project of them having solo+PV..nakamaru made a cameo on koki's BLACK OR WHITE PV..now ueda on nakamaru's PV means ueda's the next one to do a song/PV to be released on their next single..

congratulations on your 250th podcast!!!

oooooh! Thanks for the explanation re: ueda appearing in the PV. I was still wondering why the heck he was suddenly in there and why we hadn't seen any other members. but that's cool! I love when they do something like that--connecting their solo projects together!
