emothy: (massu; oiran photoshoot)
I have two words to begin this post with.

KISEKAE KARESHI.
(A.K.A. MASSU'S [second] PHOTOBOOK)


Now, let's discuss that: )


I also have suggestions for the next photobook, because these things are important and should be thought about properly.
- Maid Cosplay (IF HE CAN DO JAPANESE PROSTITUTE I CAN HAVE MAID COSPLAY)
- Cop (Think the Etude outfit but with a shoulder holster, brandishing a gun, probably some blood *_*)
- At the Beach/Learning to Surf (if you already know how, Massu, I seriously don't care, PRETEND OTHERWISE. We want half-naked, wet and drippy dorkiness with lots of falling off the board and laughing about it. The ONE problem with this photobook is not enough smiling! Also, not enough long hair, UNF.).
- Samurai/Shinsengumi officer just go push Hamao out of PMK already omfg
- Motobike. Just get in denim and leather and get on a fricking motobike and let me die happy. The end <3





In other news (yes there is other news, reluctantly XD), tomorrow mum and I have a day off together for the first time since my birthday (which does not count because we spent the day with my grandparents too who did their best to bitch and moan about everything they felt like. We both love them, but SERIOUSLY. HARD. WORK. I love them, I love them /repeat). So tomorrow we are going to be living in the cinema! Mum wants to see the new POTC film, I want to see the new X-Men, so it's a trade ;) And we'll have a nice meal out too probably :)

We don't have Sky TV anymore, we have this BT Vision thing wherein they buy/rent/whatever seasons of TV shows and documentaries and stuff and you can watch them anytime. So I may have been mainlining seasons 2-4 of How I Met Your Mother (no they did not have season one! But I saw an episode while in Australia and it was you know, FUNNY, so I gave it a try nonetheless). I think Barney Stinson is my not-so-twin. We both go around talking about how AWESOME we are all the time <3333




This post would not be relevant without an oniikuma:

1. MY DRAMA RATINGS (for the most part done, but still kind of a WIP).

2. Am debating whether to move my icon posts onto DW - do I really need another DW journal? Can I rely on LJ to host those posts? Does any of it matter? I'm hardly followed for my iconing skills XD

3. In the process of browsing tumblr I came across one that encourages picspam challenges: Themed Party. So I was trying to think of ideas for picspams I could do for my Dorama DW. So I collected up all the challenges from there and from [livejournal.com profile] picspammy: Under the cut! )

As well as all the [livejournal.com profile] drama_hunt tags/themes I keep hold of for future picspamming purposes.

Input on this would be cool though - can anyone think of a challenge or theme I could picspam anime/drama-wise? Anything you'd like to see me do? :D My most favourites are The Legend, Story of a Man, and Coffee Prince (although I assume that's been picspammed more than anything else), Prince of Tennis, Peacemaker Kurogane, K-On!, but I would also enjoy going back over Wang Qiu Wang Zi, My Prince (although the video files were never great quality even before they were subbed), Gokusen, 49 Days... Most anything I've watched, really. Here is a comprehensive list of what I've watched/partially watched.

4. I removed a bunch of comms/people from my flist, but really it's only communities I no longer wish to follow, and people who weren't following me or hadn't updated for at least two years.

5. There is a DW community called Arashi Fashion. Life is complete.

I just LOVE following shows as they're airing - sure, you have the potential to be completely disappointed from episode to episode because there's no-one who has seen it previously to tell you how it pans out overall, but MY EXCITEMENT AND ANTICIPATION LEVELS ARE INSANE.

I follow Dramabeans by RSS feed, so I always see a snippet of each post even if I don't click on the link to read the whole thing. And once Wednesday night rolls around now, every Thursday morning there's a 49 Days recap I can't read unless I want to ruin the entire episode for myself. Repeat for Thursday night/Friday morning. But browsing through to get to other posts that may have gone up I still see the preview part of the post (always non-spoilery, just a screencap from the episode and an overall comment on how the series is going). But see today This is only spoilery to me, really )

Yes, so I am speculating on the littlest, dumbest of things because I find waiting from Thursday when the first of the raws are out, til Sunday when both are generally subbed, so difficult. (TOO MUCH "EEEEEEEE!").

But I am not going to whine like so many people :x "Where are the subs? Why aren't they out yet?" UHM BECAUSE THESE PEOPLE DO IT FOR FUN, NOT PROFIT. IT'S A HOBBY, AND THEY DON'T ACTUALLY HAVE TO DO IT AT ALL.

It annoys me so much when I see all of that. I can't stand to wait because I'm so EXCITED, but I would never blame that on anyone, except on my own damn impatience XD

I will distract myself all day with more of The Return of Iljimae. There's an upside to watching older dramas, too - mainlining them without any restriction :D

In other news, MOTHERS. I just spent half an hour looking for a song for her from Glee that DOESN'T EVEN EXIST. It was a performance to the song, not a cover of the song!
emothy: (massu; surprised at your awesome)
I spent HOURS today doing this (and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it), but because it took time I am just forcing everyone on my flist to look. Well, not at all actually. You just don't click the link. But if you want to it's there ;)

-

49 Days: The Kdrama where the Reaper Angel of Death SCHEDULER gets a bigger wardrobe than all the female other characters combined! AND HE'S NOT EVEN ALIVE.

My excuse for this picspam? Jung Il-Woo is gorgeous and I love his face. He pulls the BEST faces in this drama. And is a pretty, pretty Princess Reaper.



Outfit One: The Biker Outfit (Hot leather jacket and jeans, with some questionable accessories, like the cute green and purple socks *snigger*. And the beaded bracelets - we wore those back in junior school. I would never have pegged them for a Reaper-acessory XD Even the ridiculously oversized headphones [earphones are so much more practical when you're a Reaper on the go] add a little something. I want to say idiocy, but I actually like them ;) Overall I approve - tres hot!).


HERE THERE BE MORE IMAGES AND MORE OF MY FASHION CRITIQUING. YOU LOVE IT.


(Forgive me if the image size does anything funky to your friendspages.)

"Secret Garden is described as a “fantasy melodrama”; the love between the leads develops as the story comes and goes “between game and reality.” Jang Hyuk plays a proud chaebol who runs a department store. Kim Sarang plays a skilled CF director who carries herself with confidence and haughtiness, but finds herself flustered around Jang Hyuk, who doesn’t spare her a second glance." [1]

"Secret Garden has cast Ha Ji-won to star opposite Jang Hyuk in the “fantasy romantic comedy” drama set to air on SBS later this year. Philip Lee (Story of a Man), and Kim Sarang (Tokyo Showers) are also cast, he as a martial arts director* and she as a CF director." [2]


...Not because it sounds super fabulous or anything. I'll just watch anything with Philip Lee in it. Don't judge me; last time I found Story of a Man and it's now one of my favourite dramas! The only thing is, both Legend and Story of a Man were written by the same writer, and that no doubt had a lot to do with why I enjoyed them.



* Please let there be topless martial arts scenes *begs shamelessly*

OHMYGOD XIAO BO, DON'T GO! I haven't finished episode three yet but I couldn't continue without a good wail about that.

Also, suffer like me. I have suffered alone for TOO LONG.





These two songs have completely taken over my brain lately. I'm DOOMED. DOOOOOOOOOMED.
emothy: (memoirs of a geisha; mameha tea)
Guys, I have a secret to share! :x

I AM ADDICTED TO PLAYING POKEMON ON THE DS. I apologize if I have lost anyone's respect XD

I can't help it. When the Red and Blue games came out when I was a kid, I didn't have a Gameboy. My spoilt brat cousin Ryan did though, but he'd only let me play for so long before he claimed HIS gameboy back again. (And I mean maybe half an hour!). So I never got very far. Over the past couple of years I've discovered some wonderful things, like GameBOING which let me play DRAGON'S REVENGE and DRAGON'S FURY again! Oh Sega Megadrive, you were the best console of my life.

And then I discovered you could play the old Pokemon games online too! So I started getting addicted again a few months ago. I'd only play for a little at a time, and being unable to save the game meant I had to keep starting over, but it helped with the obsession, for a while.

Then I got my ds, and then they brought out Diamond and Pearl versions, and here we are 40-something hours of gameplay later ;) Pearl was one of the things I treated myself to for my birthday.

AND I HAVE BEEN KEEPING THIS SECRET, BUT NO MORE! I felt I had t explain why I wasn't being productive in any other way ;) Well, except I've picked up a Taiwnese drama The Rose to watch, full of gay, incest and gay incest! And have been having wildly varied dreams in which I often have a sibling or many siblings! I've had nothing but vivid, freaky dreams this week, and I've been really tired and sometimes cranky because of them.

I dreamt I was the daughter of a guy who was leading a revolution or something. And felt compelled to follow in his footsteps even though I hadn't known for the first however many years of my life I was even adopted ;)

Talk about crazy.
