(Future Sticky post!)

Welcome to my journal. I seldom write personal entries, when I do it’s usually somewhat humorous anecdotes, three times a year I do the emo thing. Most of my posts are translations. I’m teaching myself Japanese, and therefore my translations may not be 100% accurate, I make horrendous typos (for example, typing “like" instead of “look”) and I suck at proofreading. Please feel free to correct me or point and laugh in private.

Also, this journal is not friends-only. I tend to lock any posts that contains personal information. Add me and I will add you back when I notice or comment here. Un-friend (?) me and I will probably un-friend you when/if I notice. I’ll probably only lock translations that I have serious doubts about, if this statement hasn’t erased any faith you might have had in my translating skills then yoroshiku ne.
It would be nice if you commented once in a while and I would prefer it you didn't repost anything.


Some stats:

Age: 26
Location: Edinburgh, Scotland.
Origin: GUYANA (Carribean / South America)
Fandoms: Mostly D-boys (the "D"  is for dumb), but, I dip my feet into a lot of things that invariably my mom considers to be gay.

 

(There's a bunch of people going "Those aren't D-boys!" But, it was from this pretty batch and I just had to take one.)


And now....
(This post is still being edited. To my f-list, is this a scary welcome post? I thought Yasu in pink might put random visitors at ease. I'll probably make a D-boys one at some point.)
none_neither: (luv me)
Someone requested a translation of a Taemin as I searched for it, I ended up downloading the entire magazine, and what do I find on the opposite page? D-date!! So I ended up getting like 6.
Bell said she hadn't seen this around and I have no idea.
There's a running section where you basically imagine what it would be like to date ideal versions of D-Date.
You know, highly photoshopped, scarf-wearing guys who think that as you go on a shopping date, it will feel like the two persons' sense are becoming one. <- ok that last part is just Seto. Whereas, Igarashi would like to go to a department store and play around in/ with women's clothes. Although nothing can top the movie date IMHO.
I'm missing one, if you have it, please add it. (looking at vichi)

Since I was away I didn't know (or forgot) that lizstarsky was translating Yanagi's entries.

I haven't read them as yet, but I'm sure they're hilarious.

Ah, yes I posted Taemin's section in Junon, here.



Actually I woke up 4 am this morning I was tempted to do Onew's. I'll probably do Minho's next for [livejournal.com profile] kenkatz
I would have finished all already, but I've been watching Pysch, Community and Franklin and Bash
And even told [livejournal.com profile] setolove and [livejournal.com profile] angelalia that I'd watch Ouran I haven't.

But before that, I posted this in the Shirota comm
I WTFed for a while at Shirota Jun's own from a few days back, but, I swear it's like a pigg costume.

Ah speaking of pigg, this is my pigg room currently, I don't know if i should go back to the horror room for Halloween.
You can't see Onew, my white tiger, he's camera shy I guess, pigg tells me he's a "lone wolf".



Oh wait, hate.



I'm not in NY, I didn't yet to see Shinee yesterday nor today. *whine whine whine*
To deal with thinking about it, someone posted some scans of SHINee articles yesterday and so I ended up doing transcribing and doing  translations.
I don't even know how. OH, I remember it's because it was all really easy. [ 1 2 3 4 5 6 <- last one I LOVE)

But, if you think this hate was towards everyone with a ticket to Madison Square Garden, then you'd be very wrong.
It's all towards Araki. This was from the batch that [livejournal.com profile] andweewoo had sent me.

When I got home, I watched a movie that Yuuyan (Endo Yuuya) recommended.

A group of best friends are living on the street, but it's each man for himself.
Of course, for each the "happy life" [2] that they're aiming for is different.
But, even though what each is facing is different, friends are still friends.

The acceptance shown as well, together (they're) the best.
"Best friends" are good ne. ♪

You can't decide who your best friend will be.
Everyone is a love friend ☆ [3]

The title "Piece of Peace" has a lot of meanings attached.
From here on, let's bring it out lots ☆

[2] "happy life" in English
[3] Errr.

みんなlove friendだ☆

Seriously, WTF is that? Everyone is love friend? Araki. T_T WAE??

Even the weird ass Yanagi entries that I did for Stefy this morning were not as hard and it involved intentional misspellings!! (I should also mention they were about pimples and lightbulbs).

Edit: Speaking of lone wolves, did anyone see Hoodwinked too? It's not as clever as Hoodwinked, but funny enough. I sort of want to speak in an evil German accent now.

I was explaining to a co-worker that I didn't feel as though I had goals, she was working and finishing her degree.
She thought it was ridiculous (that I wanted goals). Next year, I'll turn 30. I've never cared much about age, I can remember clearly when I was going for my postgrad there was a Chinese girl from Canada. She refused to tell me her age when I asked, I didn't. So I pretended once that forgot that I had asked and asked her again. As you can guess she didn't like that. Why must I be so irritating? lol
But your age is never something you should be ashamed of, regardless of what you're doing. (And you don't need me to tell you that unless you're an over 30 guy trying to pick up teen girls on Omegle.[1]  Shame on you! )
I've been very blessed in life so far, although perhaps my life is not particularly special in any way.

And then recently with Shirota's collab with a BSB (BTW full version here)
It was really his dream. This is definitely the highlight of his career so far.

This being the ..er.. lowlight


That's stolen from tumblr.
got too long )
Then he backed down from that, did I imagine this? Sigh. Reading old entries I really miss Debbie and kureno_rooster T_T

[1] The other night I could sleep and went on omegle, it was filled with people wanting naked pictures of you and one Canadian girl who said if she would kill anyone and get away with it, she would kill Justin Bieber for shaming Canadians. Hmm. Ok. But then she went into details of how she would slice his toes off and skin him, etc, etc. )

Oh yeah and after all this, I still have NO goals. Thanks YamaP for nothing.
none_neither: (you should see the legs to go with this!)
Since Stefy ( [info]pharrezychica ) said she missed Yanagi. I thought I'd post some more of the old ones that [info]andweewoo had sent me.
They're priceless really.

☆Yanagi's Fortune-telling…(Skinship)☆
(Yanagi's imagination edition)

Rating: R15 years (and older)

You enter the room. and I, Yanagi, touch your body and tell your fortune.
Each fortune will cost 8000 yen each.

Warning: Do not raise your voice/ yell. I'll get angry.

That's all a lie, but,
I've always wanted to try something like that.

Ah hahaha ?

(From the manager:
That's forbidden.
You absolutely must not do this)

That true. (laugh)

[3] He's talking about an event like a hand shake event and as though it was real.

While Yanagi offering to molest you for money was strange (but expected), I found this creepy.
I was joking that I knew what their apartment building looked like, but, I didn't expect to see it ever again (it was is two TV shoes). :/

〜コラボレーションに至った経緯〜
HOWIE Dのソロデビュー・アルバムが日本でリリースされることについて、
「スペシャルなコラボレーションをしたい」というアイデアをHOWIE本人、レーベルスタッフとともに話し合っていた中、生まれたアイデアが
「BACKSTREET
BOYSと同じく国際的なアイデンティティを持ち、世界にも通用する日本人アーティストとのコラボレーション」というものだった。
そこで、スタッフがそれに該当する日本人アーティストを探していたとき、候補に上がったのが『U』こと城田優だった。
城田優といえば、日本人の父とスペイン人の母を持つダブルで、日本語、スペイン語に加え英語も駆使するトリリンガルというパーソナリティを持ち、
俳優としての活躍はもちろん、2011年5月に城田優ではなく世界を目指すアーティスト『U』としてエイベックスからデビューし、新人とは思えない歌唱力と音楽性の高さを見せつけ話題となった。
もともとファンということもあり、カラオケなどではBACKSTREET BOYSの楽曲を歌っていたという。
実はHOWIE自身もアメリカ国籍ながら、スペイン語が話せるバイリンガル。
両者の音楽性の高さと「スペイン」という国際的な共通項を見い出して「コラボレーションの相手は彼以外には考えられない!」と思ったスタッフは早速、
HOWIEにUとのコラボレーションを提案。HOWIEはUの歌声と音楽性を「GOOD!」と評し、それを受けてU側にラヴコールを送り、晴れてコラボ
レーションが成立することになった。
そして同時にレコーディングを行い出来上がった楽曲が「If I Sayfeat. U」だ。

Translation:
Backstory of the Collaboration

As Howie D (was preparing) for the release of his Japanese CD, Howie personally said "I want to do a special collaboration".
Working with the staff from the label (Avex), in keeping with the idea that Backstreet Boys had an international identity, they decided that they should use a Japanese artist who had an international identity as well.
As the staff corresponded while searching for a Japanese artist, Shirota('s name) popped as a candidate.
Shirota who has a Japanese father and a Spanish mother, is trilingual, speaking Japanese, Spanish and can communicate in English.
While he acts of course, he made his debut on May 5th, 2011, releasing music under the stage name "U", an Avex artist who was still (relatively unknown) and possessing high musical skills.
Howie himself while American, is bilingual, speaking Spanish as well.
Since both possess such high skills and with discovering this common "Spanish" background. The staff thinking "Having anyone other partner for this collaboration is unimaginable". So they suggested U to Howie.
On commenting on U's singing, Howie said "Good" [1]
So sending out a "Love Call" to you, the collaboration was born in public. [2]
The resulting song, (written and recorded simultaneously) is  「If I Sayfeat. U」

Notes: I did this in like 5 mins or less. It's just the gist.
[1] He might have said other stuff but it was in English so this is all you need to know, it's totally not that we didn't understand it.
[2] Does Shirota still have his radio show?

none_neither: (Default)
As is the current trend all of this was on my twitter.

First off, if you're not in [livejournal.com profile] yuu_shirota - Shirota and a Backstreet Boy.
This is a big deal since Shirota lovesssssssssss BSB.
To quote [livejournal.com profile] tampabayrocky : "I bet shirota's got his panties on a twist and screamIng like a demented fangirl! Happy for him!"

This is actually more exciting than when I saw Shirota's naked ass.

I'm going to translate how it came about and post it later, but basically Howie said he wanted to do a special collab, and the Avex staff searched far and wide... but not so far that they found an non-Avex singer. >_>

Ahh, recently since [livejournal.com profile] vanilla_ichigo brought up Full House, I'd been follow Bob Saget and John Stamos for a while when they wished Dave Coulier Happy Birthday so I decided to follow him and got this DM:

Ok yeah I'm sure that probably got sent to a lot of people.

Since you're still reading this, you probably don't follow my twitter (and you have too much free time). But I had posted this a while back.
John Stamos' guide to cuddling!!
You must check out the behind the scenes as well!

Hmm... other twitter things... Oh David Copperfield (who I loved as a kid) replied to one of my tweets and this led to some people thinking I was ... Criss Angel >_>
And Ricky Kim is so hot allegedly now knows where Guyana is. I love "Fantalks"

This week I got her to marble my nails.

HecklerSpray this morning made me laugh.
"Rolling Stone, that bastion of cocking arsewipes has decided that not
only do they have the self-congratulated intelligence to judge what is
good, and what is bad, but they’ve even decided to tell everyone what
their opinion is."

It's funny and ironic since this is exactly what HecklerSpray does. However, it's mostly funny because it's true.

Funny People )

Oh Oh! I was looking at an olddd Seto pimp post I had done, I wasn't into K-pop then and even when I looked at Full House I didn't remember that I had translated that. So even though D-Date was supposed to have a collab with Choshinsei, and even though he's probably done drugs with G-Dragon, I'm just going to pretend he's a SHINee fan.
none_neither: (Default)
Yesterday, I was considering making a journal for k-pop related things since I wanted to make more k-pop friends, or at least friends that like bananas. But after talking to [livejournal.com profile] kekemy and [livejournal.com profile] vanilla_ichigo I feel like I should just stick here since it feels like my home... So blame them for this post.
This is my third post in three days, first JE then D-boys hmmm... I wonder what's left to talk about?

Anyway today is the free K-pop concert and I'm angry I cant go.
I hate the world.
Too much hate?
Fine I'll just hate everyone in NY.
Still too much hate?
Fine I'll just hate whoever picked October instead of August when I could have gone.

And now this awesomely stolen from tumblr picture which makes my hate grow:



And to make it even worse there's the SM town concert in a little bit and I doubt that they'll go back to Korea then come back to NY.

I never got to see Shirota in D-stage and DBSK as a group, or even NEWS with YamaP and Ryo lol (ok that's not funny)
But maybe one day I'll go see SHINee before Jjong leaves. Maybe.

I did this post on March 17th! But didn't post it because I was worried
that I'd misconvey it. But, what good is it sitting in a private post?




W→Water
A→Air 
E→Entertainment

WAE is made up the initials of the three essential components that make up the project.
WAE can be said to be the circle that connects the victims (of the earthquake to the company).
The name comes from the thoughts/feelings of the employees and talent attached to the company.


The three ways that WAE will be showing their support:
1. Company-wide charity auction
2. Donations collected by the agency
3. Fund-raising by the artists.

We're currently collecting donations and items to auction.
Ideas can be sent to: info@watanabe-ent.com



Endo Yuuya

We want to send cheers to bring smiles to the face of the affected. For now that's all we can do.
To be honest, we can't laugh
It hurts our (hearts), it feels like we'll burst open.
But, I think a little at a time we can bring heartfelt smiles.





Yanagi Koutarou

It's small but, let's make it a day where you can smile soon.







Wada Masato

We have... what this sort of earthquake can't make shake, we have a strong faith.
We won't forget... as this quietly finishes, to bring heartfelt smiles.
A lot of aid... a lot of goods...
Together with those, we will join our hands to yours and deliver dreams and hope.
Ganbare, Japan!!

(Note. This far more eloquent in Japanese. Sorry Wada!)


Suzuki Hiroki

SMILE!SMILE!!SMILE!!!


(Just like that in English <3 )





Igarashi Shunji

Right now, as the (news) announcement increase, so does the number of victims.
I think as with me, everyone's experiencing varous emotions; pain, sorrow, anger.
But, at a time like this, we must co-operate, we must not stop, I want (you) to move forward with (your) heads up.
Of course, I must must also do the same.
The future can be (molded) by our own hands as much as we can.
Happiness can be grasped with our own hands. For this reason, for now, we will aim for your smiles.


Araki Hirofumi

For this project, what is it that *I* can do?
I think for myself as an actor, I can use what is necessary for me to survive, like water or air, that's entertainment.

(Note: I think I made him sound flaky but the gist is that this what keeps him going so he's going to use what he can )

I know no one reads my lj anymore but, it's nice most of the people to whom I'm friended have not deleted me.
I miss lj more and more, I miss fandom and the old days.

This morning I saw the article about Ryo and the other one leaving News but, I had to .. work :(

Recently I started looking at Zenkai girl, it's so-so, but, it's the first jdrama I've looked at in a while.
I don't go on 2ch anymore, but no doubt that's where all the hate is, on twitter all the tweets in Japanese are of "shokku" and bikkuri and quite a few wondered who the heck the rest of the members were. Poor 4nin.

I don't know why but, a lot of people feel betrayed by YamaP,
Ok I take that back, I do know why.
Apparently he said he would never leave.

But, even if he did say that, it's quite possible that he felt that way at the time, maybe he didn't want you to hate him and not buy his solo CD so he told himself that he would really never leave. Lying to ourselves is something everyone does, yes even idols.
Of course he could just have been lying to "you" because even though he wanted to leave he didn't want you to cry about it.
Awww. Isn't he nice? So let's not be angry with him.

We would rather be ruined than changed;
We would rather die in our dread
Than climb the cross of the moment
And let our illusions die.

- W.H. Auden

So think about would you have rather he stayed and been miserable just so you could have things the way you wanted it?
As he slowly started to feel trapped and hate the other members. Just so you could pretend everyone was happy with the way things were?
Oh! I know, let's just all blame Kitagawa. -_-

Actually if I'm quite honest about it, I'm am truly pleased that Ryo and Yamashita left together.
Huge difference from when Shirota left D-boys and everything else in my life was going wrong.

But, most importantly it's Yuichi's bday.
I was tempted to do something dramatic like tweet "Happy Birthday Yuichi, you're gone but we won't forget you" to d-date or Miki
Then I remembered my age and that it was truly not funny.

Some tweets from Shirota :

: Good morning. Is everyone ok? It was scary until morning. I'm sorry I couldn't do anything. The world knows about the state of Japan & are trying to help. Hang there in a bit more.

: Yesterday I meant well and RTed a lot of information without checking. I heard some of them were false. I'm sorry.

: The situation continues to get worse. Filming has also stopped. Even if it's a small thing, let's do whatever we can. Let's believe in our strength.
Now is the time, to become one. If we join forces, we can overcome.

: First, there's conservation of energy. Refrain from using electricity unless you need it.
Each person's little desire/thought can be one person's big wish and someone's loved one can definitely be saved. Definitely.

: You don't have to become a hero, you don't have to say "Let's do good". Just imagine a time when someone your loved was hurting, or a time when they cried, what would you do?
Let's start from now.

: My mother left my sick 11 year old sister at home and soon after she left the earthquake occurred.
Hurrying back, she found my little sister crying and frantically clinging to our parrot and two dogs.
Adults must reliably protect (their) children so they no longer suffer from anxiety like this.

Summary:
Shirota Yuu X Music = U, however, Shirota x Twitter = Head + Desk.. Shirota doesn't know what he's going to tweet about, acts like 12 and I've forgotten all of the tiny amount of Japanese I knew. Anything I left in Japanese, it's because he already wrote the equivalent in English in the tweet, sorry that there's too many comments and the format's a little hard to read, I think next time I'll color code it or just leave out the links.

Then today for most of the day Heechul from Suju was trending at #1. Because he was drawing on his iPhone. He's still at number 2 right now. (Edit: My sister just pointed out he's back at one! lol)



The tweet before my tweet to my sister was the one from arama about what male celebs gay wouldn't sleep with. Now most of those are JE.
What happens with these polls are someone will top the hated poll and the loved poll, like Erika-sama. It's that or they were not polling gay men. Isn't the whole jyanni-kei thing start with gay roots. Too lazy to google.

Since I saw Araki already on pigg, I was more focused on the fresh meat Yamada Yusuke.


Our room rehearsed going tiny at the same time, so when they got there we all mini-ed and Yamada was surprised and said we were cute.
Then he and Araki took turns at going mini.
Araki did back-flips and Yamada cried b/c he couldn't do them.
Everyone kept congratulating him on Kamen Rider OOO.
I don't remember much else.
For you that don't know much about D-boys, this Yamada is actually hot in real life.
I really need to stop talking like Joori from Star King.
