I don’t have anything to talk about right now…so onto the post.
Continuing with the ‘Intoxication’ thing…
My account of staying up late as hell to watch Junsu’s first performance of Intoxication. (with me also spazzing over pictures of his performance at Music Fair and the Girl’s Awards. (Feels a little weird…reading about my ex BF, I liked him so much (it was border line love tbh)…if only I knew at the time what he was doing behind my back…)
So~ I stayed up until 4 AM to watch Music Fair.
Yes I did.
Initially I wasn’t even planning on watching it….I was gonna wait until it got uploaded, I was just gonna chill with the boyfriend. But then Thao,who was supposed to be going somewhere until Sunday (i don’t know where) ended up deciding not to go and asked me if I planned on staying up to watch Junsu because she was.
And of course I said yes.
So we started doing minor spazzing and my boyfriend was looking very amused, because he’s knows all about Junsu, all about him. He knows all about JaeJoong too. Mainly because I have this picture:
in a big ass picture frame that sits on my desk (I don’t have it there anymore. When I left the fandom – with the exception of their CDs – I put away all THSK things in my closet. Never to be looked at again D:) . I am not kidding you. I just love this picture for some reason so I felt the need to print it out on some really good paper and keep it…I don’t know why. (Plus, I have a confession to make….about a year ago, JaeJoong was my ultimate bias for like 6 months….It just happened out of the blue one day o.O It was very weird. I used to joke with my boyfriend and tell him JJ was my secret lover haha. But I actually loved having JaeJoong as my bias~ and yet somehow Junsu ended pulling me back to him lol …*sigh* oh Junsu)
Anyway~ He decided he was gonna stay up with us, and i was like, ok~ …if that’s what you want.
But I really wanted to kick him in his fucking shin.
So all of this happened around 11 and Thao all of sudden wanted to get candy (o.O) so the BF took us to walmart…where we acted like 8 year olds (I’ve got this huge ass bruise on my thigh because I bumped into the end of a metal shelf!) and when we got back it didn’t end. The three of us were just acting like fools. Seriously. (and I was trying to get him to leave!)
We were like 5 minutes away from it starting when, fortunately, my boyfriend ended up having to go and pick up his drunk friends from this bar called Jack Daniels so he thankfully left!! (YES!).
And then the show started.
I can honestly tell you, I barely remember anything that happened…every time his face was shown I squealed and jumped around. I don’t remember if he sang well or if he danced well…All I know was that I was screaming like fucking crazy (it’s a good thing our walls are thick). and Thao kept saying, ” he is so~ gorgeous! He sounds so~ good” (She’s the type of person that just sits there in a daze and mumbles shit.) And I was just like, “I know!! I know!! I love him so~ much!!” while jumping on the bed and squeezing the shit out of her arm. (I miss Thao…)
(But now watching it. It was a really good performance. Some people thought he sounded tired or something like he didn’t give his all? But I, personally, loved his vocal. It was excellent (imo). the only thing that irritated me were those damn lights and how every time he did his body roll they would zoom in on his face! (dammit I know what his face looks like! I wanna see his body!) and OMG 2:00 – 2:02,he made that little “ugh” sound!!! Sexy~~! Also…I realize at the end he says, “You lose your breath baby” …urrr..I totally thought he was singing in Japanese right there >_<; . But either way. It was a really good first performance. I enjoyed it. (obviously) )
Well, after it was over we decided to watch the Intoxication PV like 6 times…spazzing and singing and dancing. And then we ended up playing Balloons and My Girlfriend over and over after that (we are so weird) We didn’t go to bed until around 7:30, we didn’t even make it in the room! we slept on the couch! I could have slept all day but Dani woke me up when she opened the door and all that damn light got in my face! (idk where the hell that girl was last night…) So I woke up at around 10 (woke Thao up too) and went to, of course, Ihop (!) (Still love me some Ihop…mmhhm.) and got these awesome ass pancakes with cream cheese in the middle (I love pancakes..best food ever!… ) and then…you know what happened (Some shit in the fandom happened that pissed me off.). and I went work out and that was that.
So…Junsu. Music Japan pics. Leather shirt. ‘Nuff said.
Girl’s Award….Ho Shit. He performed fucking Xiahtic.
Seriously. Chick looked like she killed it up there!…She is such a lucky fucking bitch. Grinding all up on Junsu…I’m so jealous! (Feels so weird seeing these pictures again after so long…)
…More of this next post..
It has been announced. SNSD will be releasing their first Japanese album on June 1st. Called…Girls’ Generation (Don’t they have a Korean album called Girls’ Generation though?).
Here is the cover.
This is a really gorgeous cover. Honestly, the best one they’ve ever had. Let’s hope the new songs reflect this image.
There is going to be seven new songs along with all of the remakes they’ve released, including Japanese version of ‘Hoot’.
Okay, I’ve never been a fan of SNSD. Not because I have something against them or anything, it’s just that I can’t get myself to like their songs with the exception of the ones they promote. So I’m really hoping that I can like these songs on this album.
It’s going to be very interesting to see how well their album does. Especially considering how much KARA’s Girl’s Talk has sold…has to be over 500,000 by now. I really hope their album does well though, because watching their performance of MR. TAXI yesterday, you can tell that they’ve been working on that Japanese (and because I can only imagine what STANDS and KARA stans would say if it didn’t sell more or around the amount that KARA’s did in the first week.)
Speaking of the MR. TAXI Music Station performance…I must say I was impressed, because they were actually synchronized (I’m sorry, but those people saying SNSD are always synchronized are delusional). The only downside were those horrible outfits and the fact that the backtrack was extremely loud. You could barely hear them singing.(Not that we would hear them anyway, because with the exception of a couple, they all sing incredibly low or in those “cute” voices that majority of them like to use).
Here’s the performance for people who haven’t seen it.
I really want to become a fan of SNSD…maybe I’ll give their music another try…watch some shows with them on it…
I can not believe I haven’t talked about her POWER OF MUSIC tour!! (For people who don’t know, she scrapped HOTEL Love Songs and decided to do a completely new tour after the earthquake happened .)
No glamorous make-up. No costume changes. No interludes. No Props. Just Ayu and the troupe from start to finish.
It’s getting mixed feelings at AHS. Some people love the idea, others not so much (I think mainly because people really wanted her to perform the music from ‘Love Songs’…and most can’t imagine an Ayu concert without all of the things above.)
People who have gone have been saying majority of the songs sound really different (something that has mixed reviews from the Japanese fans). Also many are saying her voice sounds AMAZING. (She’s been getting vocal training.)
I personally love it. Ayu is someone with great stage presence. I’ve always felt she could do a tour like this and have it be successful. I just never thought it would happen!
And OMG the setlist!!!
mini MC w/ a cappella songs
03. BLUE BIRD
06. A Song for XX
08. NEVER EVER
09. walking proud
10. part of Me
13. Far away
15. Bold & Delicious
16. Mirrorcle World
19. Born To Be…
20. A Song is born
Flawless setlist. Truly flawless. Majority of these songs I thought she would never perform again. And she’s perfoming a lot of my favorites:
A Song is Born, Monochrome, NEVER EVER (said to be sung in the original register. Thanks Jesus!!), Walking Proud, Part of Me, M, and FORGIVENESS!!!
I am a very happy fangirl. (Though I’m in the minority that is a little sad that she left out BOYS & GIRLS.)
Kat-tun finally released the PV for WHITE.
I love it. Both the PV and the song (Just wish it was shot after Junno cut his hair…). The PV is one of the simplest PVs they’ve ever done. And the song is nice for summer.
I’m a little peeved with some of the HYPHENS (KAT-TUN fans) going on and on about how much it sounds like an Arashi filler song and they therefore hate it.
…Uhm. You all loved PERFECT when they performed it on Mu-sta and it sounds like an “Arashi song”. So how is this one any different? Plus it’s not like they haven’t done songs like this before.
Either way, I love this song.
Also, the songs that will be released on the singles have been leaked and the one I love the most is, Yuuki no Hana:
Touched my heart. Beautiful song. Absolutely beautiful.
…and a little extra. Here is their first performance of WHITE.
Junno. Get in me now. UNF.
SONGS OF THE MOMENT
BUCK-TICK – Long Distance Call (Oh…Atsushi…People who don’t know BUCK-TICK are missing out. Gorgeous songs sung by a gorgeous man with a gorgeous voice.)
L’arc en Ciel – SEVENTH HEAVEN (Will forever love this video…and HYDE’s dancing lol. I think I love it more than GACKT’s dancing. And I can’t believe I didn’t like this song when it was first released. I love it now. Everytime it comes on my iPod I get excited.)
GACKT – Ash (I completely forgot this song existed until last night when I was making a playlist. uh..I really don’t know how this happened because this is one of my favorite songs off of Diabolos…)
GACKT – Fragrance (This song…I love it so much. I have no words to describe how much I love it. The funny thing is it wasn’t a song I loved from the first listen…but it’s now one of my favorite of his.)
Ayumi Hamasaki – Monochrome (There’s never a day where I don’t listen to Ayu…but I haven’t listened to her early albums in a while. And when I saw the POWER OF MUSIC set list I went back and listened to them and fell back in love with this song.)
SPEED – BODY&SOUL (SPEED’s debut song. Idk why I love this so much…but I do. Love me some 90s Jpop.)
OMG. Miyavi and Jin. When I saw Jin @ Miyavi I thought I was going to have a heart attack. LOL. The conversation was just too much for me. So much lulz.
I’m so glad I follow them.
ALSO! Congrats to Arashi for their fanclub reaching 1 MILLION members. Damn. Sorry Cassies…Your record has been beat.
Title of this post is a song by my new skank queen, HYNA.
