solesakuma: (Pride & Prejudice)
So, you see, the other day I missed a bus and got stuck for one hour.

I had completely forgot that I had spent the whole time casting Johnnys as Austen characters, but bubbly made me remember!

Matsukame = P&P )

So ... Persuasion = angsty Sakumoto (OMG YOU WERE TOO YOUNG AND NOW I'M OLD :().

And Emma should be Tegoshi with a really old senpai.

S&S. Hm. No idea there.

And Northanger Abbey = dorama parody!
solesakuma: Nino with an amusing expression (Nino is amused)


- OMG TAIGA. OMG TAIGA. OMG TAIGA. He's so cute and adorkable and I want to hug him.

- As I told Jackie, I'm back to the OMG I LOVE YOU phase of every Arashi fan's relationship with Jun. 'Meh' will soon follow... until I realize he's hot again.

- And he was so pretty. AND HE COOOOOOOOOOOKED.

Spoilers! )


Oh, fandom

... Why do I read JE secrets? WHY?

So, basically, a lot of old Arashi fans don't like Arashi's new image - which I don't think is that much different, really, they're just older and come on, people, they can't be dorky teenagers anymore and they're still a little too young to be dorky old guys like TOKIO who don't give a damn about anything.

And yes, Sakurai goes overboard with the faily!act but then, at the beginning, he went overboard with the tought!act and hey, at least he's not being a poser now. And I like Jun a lot better now, actually so. And I don't see that big of a change in the rest of them.

But, to cut the rambling, sometimes you move on. Most fans go from one fandom to another. It happens.

CLAMP was my first fandom but to be honest, I should have left long before I did. I started hating them and you know what I did? I mocked them with ABBA and then just dropped them.
I survived, so if you dislike ARashi now... go to K-pop! Or to the BBC Sherlock! Just... stop talking about realness when they're idols. If we believe their interviews, they have way more control now than they did then. Maybe this is what they want.

So I never thought I'd become one of the people that said STOP HARSHING MY SQUEE, but I am now. Girls, if they bore you now, leave. To use the old fannish metaphor, Arashi now is your high school boyfriend who is now in his late 20's. He's not as fun anymore, he's trying too hard to be an adult and your parents may love them, but you've changed. So have they! It happens.

Move on before they're the boyfriend that stole your notebook and forgot to pay rent and became unrecognizable - hello there, CLAMP.

Move on. It's better for the one of us that are still into them.

DISCLAIMER: I never move on from fandoms, not really, so I never quite understand most fans. XD

+ Well, no, not really. It's also a terrible desire to run away just this moment. I feel like I'm living a flashback, like I'm supposed to be out of here but I'm stuck.

Oh, Wanderlust, sometimes you suck.

+ today I went to 'study' to my Japanese teacher's home. Daaamn, so much food! SO MUCH FOOD.

+ Sadly, it reminded me I lost the chance to apply for this year's scholarship because I was in the US.

+ Classes begin on Monday! Argentine and Latin American Literature - which means 20th Century, which means I know nothing about it! Also Critical Theory.

+ I'm going to Brazil for a week. I don't know why I complain sometimes.

+ I've almost kept up with [ profile] je_justfriends! I already got my fic. I quite loved it, really. It's very understated and nothing really happens, but I loved it!

[ profile] je_ficgames! I haven't voted because there's too much fic. TOO MUCH FIC.

Some recs justfriends - from what I could read :( -:

i. The Great Johnny's Relay (How Hina Got His Tupperware Back): you know that silly dengoban conversation about a Tupperware? Well, this fic is about that. Everybody shows up, ICly enough. Should reread it.
ii. La La La Boomerang Show: Arashi and TOKIO work at Nakai's paper company. Pranks ensue. As silly as it sounds.

Any rec, people who are keeping up with them?

Which means that now there's Arashi/Kame gang-bang fic. I guess my evil strategy of going kinkier work.

+ And that's it.

+ Also: I'm apparently slated to play Dick Grayson at Mansión. RPGs, I hates you.
solesakuma: (Default)
+ Remix is over! Reveals have been posted and I should start actually commenting on the fics - worst mod ever.

My remix was a little fluffy gen piece featuring Arashi and TOKIO.

I also got a fucking awesome remix by [ profile] katmillia! It's a remix of a Kameda story, featuring paparazzo!Ueda and moviestar!Kame.

+ I was going to happily scream NO MORE DEADLINES... but I signed up for Rainbow Bridge.

But both [ profile] je_justfriends and [ profile] je_ficgames fics are done! So that buys me some time to write some fic just for the heck of it. So much Matsukame lingering on my computer...

+ College and friends still suck, though.

Yes, those boobs are natural!

Now that I've caught your attention...

+ Arashi's new album! BEST THING EVER.

I totally love it. It has a way more current sound than their usual albums, even if it's less pop and more eurobeat. More danceable, also.
Now, the singles A-Sides are nothing like the album. Even the B-sides are more coherent.

Song by song review:

solesakuma: (Default)
Well, Arashi's really.

Yes, the boys are working hard. They're working a lot. Their singles rate is getting kinda ridiculous.

But GANTZ isn't slated for release next year and Ooku will premiere in October. That means, that the two singles are months away. They have their album release and yes, the Natsuniji song so...

So this year we have had Troublemaker, Monster, To be free, Natsuniji and probably the Ooku song. That's five singles. Which is not that far away from their normal singles schedule. And yes, one album. They release one of those - or a compilation - every year around this time.

They're not idiots. They know this popularity will either end or turn them into SMAP. If they want to take their chances and earn as much money as they can while it lasts, let them- They're adults. They're not teenagers any more.

And come on! IDOLS ARE NOT ARTISTS, not by design at least. Stop bringing music or artistic integrity to this fandom. They are marketing. One hundred percent gimmick. Do I think Nino is a talented actor? Yes. I also realize that's not his focus. Do I believe he could be a kickass songwriter? Yep. But, again, JOHNNY'S. That's not the point. They sell dream versions of themselves and the music is just an excuse. Live with it or go to the Pink Floyd fandom.

Will they manage to live together? Will they discover why did the garage burn down? And who is the mysterious neighbour who shows up at unexpected hours, anyway?

You know you want to see the Cast chart and the episode list )

  • Watched the first 3 episodes of Doctor Who new season this weekend. I'm loving it. It's childlike and silly. Eleven is not emo. I'm liking Amy more and more. I like her recklessness and her quick thinking. And she does things and she gets the Doctor. And her hair is great.
  • Fuck. I'm going to hate next episode, aren't I?
  • Watched Disc 2 of 5x10 as well. FUCKING AWESOME. FUCKING AWESOME. OMG. RAIN. AND HUGS. AND HAPPINESS. And if they actually gave Jun that jacket, they deserve to die.
  • Watched the SMAP vs KAT-TSUN special. It was unbelievably TUNN-ish.
  • SMAP's awesomeness is obvious, but yet: OMG SO AWESOME.
  • There's no way in Hell Arashi could make that kind of special and have no reality subtext.
  • Kame was so ... serious and actually competing during the thing. Come on, it's Nakai. How the fuck do you take Nakai seriously, Kamenishi? That said, KT needs more senpai bullying.
  • J-music con still going smoothly. We have too many ideas but yet. Rumours about us abound so we've decided our identities will remain a secret. (Note: I know every geek in my city. In fact, our main "enemies" are ... kouhais in mine. Or were. So really, our hiding of identities amounts to wearing cowboy hats during the convention.)
  • Avoided studying.
  • Remix Redux assignments are here and I like mine. Yay!
  • Any good doramas this season?

- 'Social justice' amuses me when not used by peronists.

- Today, in the bus back home, the most annoying, infuriating thing happened. Apparently, some lady hadn't paid a full ticket, so the driver stopped the bus and made us wait until she got off. Which was infuriating but you know what's the kicker? I'm not even sure she still was on the bus. And then, since he was running late, he decided to skip a few stops including mine.
Asshole. And all for 80 cents.

- I HAVE AN USA VISA NOW. The America is Awesome commercial they kept looping annoyed me, though.
So, the Empire awaits!

- A reply for an old meme:

Arashi in gifs, songs, suns, Argentina and Yukari! )ys rained.

1. Comment to this post with "I surrender!" and I'll assign you the basis of some TV show idea. (Science fiction show, medical drama, criminal procedure, etc...)
2. Create a cast of characters, including the actors who'd play them
3. Add in any actor photos, character bios and show synopsis that you want.
4. Post to your own journal.

Notes: so much fun doing this. The cast part was awesome, mostly because I got to play the part of WTH Casting Agency. Luis Luque as a sleek book thief, that's all I say.
And then I imagined the fandom.

In an alternate world, books are the most essential commodity. Why is this so, and who are the brave (or not so brave) folks in the book trade? (Original idea by [info]morganize)

26 episodes-long science fiction series. Argentina and Japan co-production. Has actual production values, in a rare move for both countries. Locations include Tokyo, London, Buenos Aires and Paris..

Perros de presa (Hunting dogs, I guess)

An alternate Earth. Technology advanced at a much higher rate than on our world and, therefore, e-books were adopted way earlier, dooming books to an early death. However, an unexplained disaster has created a post-apocalyptic world which is just barely recovering itself. Among the consequences, knowledge stored in electronic devices has been lost and the few paper copies left are among the most prized objects, second only to fuel.
There are two distinct book trades, with different contexts and aims.
One works for the rich and wealthy with access to technology. They're e-book archaeologists, trying to figure out such arcane stuff as 'format' and 'Oh My God, that em dash killed the work of seven years'. Most of them are scientists and like to be called Tinkers.
The other trade is more underground and is linked with the remnants of governments, the last organized religions and with the omnipresent revolutionary groups. They deal with the famed paper copies and their trade is way more dangerous. They call themselves Libreros, but most people call them Chantas. Most of them come from cultural backwaters where technology wasn't as developed.
The series chronicles the exploits of several of these as their paths cross.
Violeta is a young, promising Librera. Sumire is an agent working for an e-book trade ring. Together, they fight crime. Or, rather, unveil old conspiracies!
Arashi, ARgentinian people and pretty! )

Hello, people! I'm finally updating this thing after coming back from my holidays.

And therefore, bullet points!
  • First and out of a cut: some of you might know I'm a tag wrangler for the Archive of Our Own. Some of you might not even what the Archive is (a fanfiction archive with some very cool features! Like freeform tags and tag drones wranglers that make it so that Matsukame = Matsujun/Kame = Matsumoto Jun/Kamenashi Kazuya = Kamenashi Kazuya/Matsumoto Jun), easy importing and more!). Since I'm the JE resident wrangler and I've prepopulated the whole fandom - meaning that many tags are already in the Archive -, I'd love you to check it out! And then break it and my tags. :P
  • I cut my hair! And also, Spanish entries are now filtered to people I know speak Spanish.
  • Also, for the USA people, what's one to do in San Francisco and Los Angeles? I'm going in March and wanted some natives' opinion.
  • Holidays! )
  • MY JE LIFE )
  • real life )

Oh, no, I forgot laurus_nobilis's meme!

Leave a comment saying, "READ HARD" and I will give you five things I associate with you. Then post about what they mean to you, along with this, at your journal.

Arashi, ABBA, literature, feminism and Parakiss )

- My friends came over to my house yesterday. I had such a great time! We spent some time at the pool, had heart-to-heart conversations, we watched the Countdown and silly Arashi stuff. Before we went to sleep, we ended up discussing Akanishi and his bad pick-up lines for like an hour. Roo even dreamt of the Jimusho.

- I watched the Countdown! It was great. Shiny yet not so shiny costumes, fanservice between people that hardly ever speak, a great amount of drunks, Johnny's from the past - my favourite part of the Countdown, since I actually like those Johnny's -. One of my favourite Countdowns.

- I also watched the Doctor Who finale. HM. HM. Can't wait to the 2010 season, though.

- JE_Hols reveals! I wrote Hello, you fool, I love you, a Kameda AU fic. Ueda is a paparazzi and Kame is a movie star and together they fight crime. Yes, really. Random appearances of most of the Jimusho, but mostly V6, KAT-TUN, Arashi and K8. Here at LJ, at DW and at the AO3.
I also uploaded my Yuletide fics to my DW/LJ fic journals.

- I'm a tag wrangler for the Archive of Our Own now! I'm really excited about it.

- The JE remix has more than 30 sign ups. I'm excited! Sign up before the 10th!

The Gokusen movie better end with an epic Shin/Yankumi kiss, damn it. If Oguri Shun and the rest of the first season gang have all returned, apparently, I'll still hope for Matsujun, you know? hope is the last thing you lose, after all.
That said: he, they're running. Can't have Gokusen without the running. And Kame looks mighty fine. Like he's been eating and all.

In other news: aaaaaagh, now I have to go read up on KAT-TUN and I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHERE TO START.
Fuck you, OTP from Hell, fuck you.

Hoy vi los dos nuevos PVs de Arashi y. Y.





Today I saw the latest two Arashi PVs.

Blame [ profile] fivesomeaday. Also check this entry.

So the challenge was to cast Arashi in some other fandom.
I chose Mamma Mia! And I made a poster.

New ... chapter of the Matsukame thing.
I swear it grew on its own.
IT'S ALSO 3000 WORDS! I haven't written that much in ages.
