Part III of my favorite songs of 2011.
There are two songs that I am obsessed with right now. One is Kyary’s new song, ‘Tsukema Tsukeru’ and the other, which I just heard a couple of days ago, is Orange Caramel’s ‘Funny Hunny’.
”Tsukema Tsukeru’ is her first true single, because as far I know (correct me if I’m wrong), ‘PONPONPON’ was just a digital/promotional single for her mini-album and as such, is not counted as her actual first single.
Anyway, this song, much like ‘PONPONPON’, is very catchy and the PV is just as odd as her other PV. My only problem with this song is it almost feels like a Perfume reject song…I guess that’s understandable being that they use the same producer. Even still, I hope they have her get a more distinct sound, she already stands out by how she looks and by her PVs, but not everyone’s going to find out about her through her videos… Okay. I’m just rambling now lol.
And now Orange Caramel.
Orange Caramel. I love them. love love love. Kpop fans act like it’s wrong to like them because they’re “too cute” but so the fuck what? What’s wrong with some cuteness every now and then? I’d prefer natural cuteness over that try-hard sexiness that most of them are doing. If I’m being completely honest, I’d listen to Orange Caramel over After School any day.
The MV is a cartoon which I don’t like because I would rather a video with them actually in it, whatever. The song is super cute and all I keep singing in my head is – MY FUNNY HUNNY~~ Gawd this song is so cute.
Can’t believe I forgot to talk about Kuu! Well, I’m sure everyone knows already anyway…but just in case you don’t, Kuu is getting married to KENJI03 – vocalist of BACK-ON – and she is also eight weeks pregnant. Her upcoming album (which looks like it will be fucking amazing) JAPONESQUE, was scheduled for a late February release but has been pushed up to late January…obviously because she’s preggers. She will be on hiatus after the release of her album until November 13th of next year.
I’m extremely happy for her, but gawd that’s almost an entire year of inactivity and Kuu pushes those singles and albums out like Ayu…I’m creying tbh. Who is gonna give me the sluttiness that Kuu can give? Will be a huge void in my fandom life next year.
Was planning on doing like three posts within the last week and a half but 1) work and 2) I’ve been really lazy. So please forgive me and read about/listen to these songs that I love at the moment.
Also before we get to the songs, I’ve decided that I’ll post links to download the songs that I list on my SOTM posts because I figure, if it were me and I’d heard a song on a blog that I really liked that I would want them to post a link so I could put said song on my iPod. So that’s what I’m going to do from now on.
Since the last actual post, I have moved from Louisiana. Yes. I am finally in Texas and I am loving it. I’d forgotten just how much I missed living on my own and not with my parents.
I could do without all of the traffic though. I already hate driving and the traffic is making me hate it even more. I’m from a small city, so the traffic there isn’t anything like here. I’m also tired of seeing my roommate’s boyfriend at the apartment every day. He’s so fucking annoying. It would be fine if he just didn’t talk to me but he does and he knows I can’t stand him.
I don’t miss anything from home…other than my dogs that is.
But enough of that. Onto the post.
So after much thought, I’ve decided to make a new twitter account. Here is the link: HERE if you want to follow me. I also put a link in the side bar. I will of course follow everyone back. I haven’t tweeted anything yet, I’ll begin tweeting when I get a few followers…
Decided to use my other twitter account that I’ve been tweeting on for quite a few days. So here is that one: HERE if you want to follow me.
Like I said before, I’ll follow everyone who follows back.
Anyway, here is the post. It’s pretty straight to the point. Not much rambling. I’m just too tired and stressed, trying to get all of this shit together before I move.
Went shopping today, and I bought this cream colored top. My boobs look a-mazing in it (TMI I know, but I was so excited when I realized it). The funny thing is, that’s the only article of clothing I bought when I went shopping. Everything else I bought from Sephora.
I need to stop wasting money on make-up. But I wear it all the time, so I run out of things quickly D:
ANYWAY, onto the post
Wow, how long has it been since I did a legit post?
So, what’s been going on with me? Besides the whole situation with my dad, next week I’ll be making that big move to Houston!
Excited but sad…and a bit anxious. Also, since the last time I’ve did a full post, I’ve gotten my priorities straight and really decided to change some things that I realized I didn’t like (to myself, the people in my life, my situation, my “internet life” etc). It was time.
Anyway, enough of that.
Only two topics. Going through all of the news and shizz there wasn’t much I was really interested in talking about.
Onto the post.
Back home in Louisiana. Glad to see my babies(my dogs), but I’m missing Florida already.
For people who live in the U.S., I hope everyone had a great 4th of July. I feel so bad because I did a post on the 4th and forgot to wish Jin and especially GACKT a happy birthday. 27 and 38….wow. (and Canadians too! Canada’s independence day was like a week before right?)
Bought a shit ton of stuff while I was there…I’m so broke right now. Gonna have to wait until next week to order Ayu’s mini-album.
This post ended up being a little longer than I wanted it to be, because I ended up rambling on the Namie section. Blegh. Sorry.

Every time I listen to this song I think about my graduation. This is so embarrassing to talk about, but the day of my graduation everyone was getting ready at the house (my parent, siblings etc) and I was totally cool with everything, I was just chillin’ listening to my iPod…then this song came on and I just started SOBBING. I had to go lock myself in the bathroom so I could cry in peace (of course everyone could tell since my eyes were all red and puffy and I didn’t hear the end of it). That song really spoke to me during that moment. It played in my head that entire day.
have to post the 10th anniversary version because I couldn’t find the original anywhere…
This is totally random but, I was a huge bandwagon bitch.
Yes. Yes I was.
I got into Japanese music when I was 13 and I said all that usual weeaboo/Koreaboo shit about how American music sucks and all they talk about is this, this, and that and Japanese music was the best thing in the entire world. I said it mainly because, where I was going for news and music, people were saying similar things, so I jumped onto what they were saying.
I stopped that shit quick once my brother (who got me into Japanese music btw) told me about myself lol
…And I am ashamed to admit this, but I also hated Ayu (yes, you read that right) because I was a Namie and Utada fan first and we all know their fans hate Ayu and I jumped on that bandwagon of hating her…but I saw the light. THANK GOD. Forgive me Goddess Ayu.
Why did I say all of this?
Because I see it with Asian pop fans all of the time, a lot more than usual.
It makes me wonder if they’ll ever grow out of that (hating every other country’s music if it isn’t Jpop, Kpop, Cpop etc etc) like I did, or if they’ll just keep thinking that way? I know everytime I think about my weeaboo stage, I cringe.
Anyway, it’s 6:20 in the morning and I haven’t been to bed yet, so let me get this post out really quick
