Well, technically it's the 68th because apparently I deleted #5 and #26 some time ago... probably because they were ugly. But my file is numbered 70 so let's just assume it's 70 too. 8D
I decided to compile them in a single image...( Read more... )
I hope I'm not gonna burn out soon like I did last year (regarding wallpaper designs, that is)... but for now, I'm still kinda on a roll! 8D
Am also trying something new: smartphone lockscreen wallpapers. But first! Let's get the regular desktop wallpapers out of the way...
Contents: Kanjani8, K8 combi (Tacchon, Ryo, Yasu), Yokoyama You, Nishikido Ryo, Shibutani Subaru, V6, Okada Junichi
( Ooh, lockscreen wallpapers... )
Lockscreen (for iPhone)
So I adapted some of my wallpaper designs to an iPhone lockscreen format. I don't know whether there's a real "demand" for this or not. If there is, I may start creating separate designs for this format (because it's vertical and narrower, or even square - based on how the iPhone places the clock and slider on the lock screen).... or make an extra version of my regular wallpapers (if I feel the design fits the format). So, tell me what you think?
Beneath the cut, you will find lockscreen designs for: Arashi, K8, Maru, Tacchon, Ryo, Yoko, V6, Miyake Ken, Tonisen, Kamisen, Mabo, Ikuta Toma
Contents: Kanjani8, K8 combis, Yokoyama You, Ohkura Tadayoshi, Arashi, Matsumoto Jun, Sakurai Sho, Okada Junichi, Nagano Hiroshi, Takizawa Hideaki
( It's really been a while! )
HSJ segment now, but YokoHina were rambling on about names just now. Yoko thinks that his is... not so great? haha Mentions of the "Knock brothers" joke somewhere in there. "Murakami", on the other hand, seems to be a surname that pops up a lot more in geinoujin circles these days. Yoko thinks "Kimura" is a cool one, and they generally agree that SMAP-san have nice names - "Nakai. Inagaki." "Nishikido" isn't too bad either. "Shibutani" could be troublesome, what with the Shibuya connection and all that. XD
Bah, LJ lost my last update. Here it is:
Yoko still remembers his first time in Tokyo - age 15, on the shinkansen and all... and V6 performing at Yokohama Arena? 8Da
Thoughts (that are spoiler-ish):
- I feel faintly alarmed and kind of stunned that I managed to comprehend a lot of the dialogue without subs. Without English subs, anyway. There were Mandarin and Japanese subs. I think the Jap subs did help here and there. I feel like I could almost... sub this. With a spot translator. 8D
( spoilers... )
Hm, YokoHina were discussing the Ranger colours? Baru chose first - pretty much just up and declared he wanted red. 8D Yoko and Ryo were indifferent.
Yoko mentions that Arashi have individual colours too right - the ones that were on Tokyo Tower and all...
Ugh, that caller had such a... cartoony voice. I hope that was the result of voice-changing software and that that wasn't her actual voice.
Tokio the Ride - Taichi calls a listener
Girl: Who's this?
Taichi: Who do you think it is?
Girl: Eh? ... Jii-chan? *
Taichi gets girl to pass the phone to her little brother and he demands to know if he sounds like their grandfather.
Boy: Not at all.
Hmm... So, I think that comes up to roughly saying (and enshinge and nagoya_mewmew, feel free to correct me - learning process, after all!):
In the year 2035, Japan's economy has declined, and public order (security?) has deteriorated, gone to pieces*. In an abandoned town, seven men abandoned by everyone**, decide to protect the people. Can they become true heroes?
* I suppose 荒廃していた would be more like "destroyed" but I just liked the sound of "gone to pieces." haha
** I'm taking real liberties compressing those two lines into one... 8D
I always have trouble trying to figure out the tenses. And am not yet familiar with how they might break sentences up for dramatic effect so I kind of sat there for a while wondering exactly where a phrase/line really ended. It's tough... but I'm trying ^^;;
RANGER MOVIE. YESSSSSS.
With new and improved uniforms too! I approve! (And Ryo's streaked hair amuses me incredibly.)
Ok, my concentration is shot today. haha
( Character descriptions... )
The thing about me listening to Recomen is that I can't keep up my concentration. My concentration wavers depending on how much of the talk I understand. If I don't get the topic at the start, my attention wanders really quickly. And with each segment in between - HSJ's, SMAP's, Taichi's, and Tsubasa's - my concentration levels drop. No, actually it drops the most after HSJ's and SMAP's because I really don't care about those segments and I'm only giving about 1% of attention to it (just enough to know when the segment ends, haha). So when those segments end, I have to quickly pull myself back to focus on what Yoko and Hina are saying, and it usually takes a while for me to regain a decent level of concentration after that... which means I lose out on more stuff and end up understanding less and less as the show goes on. -_-""
So just now my mind was wandering all over the place again and then suddenly I heard Maru's voice. Realised they were playing a clip from last week's Recomen. Presumably the part where he was talking about himself and Hina.
Yoko was totally pushing the HinaMaru thing. (I don't ship anyone, but it was really funny to listen to anyway XD ) I attempted to take notes but... er... only managed several lines. Too busy alternately puzzling over phrases and cracking up at other times. enshinge is the pro at this, not me - let's hope she gets around to listening to this Recomen soon? 8)b
Have some random lines from throughout the last half hour or so, colour-coded just because I felt like it. haha (Some are potentially incorrect, and I apologise beforehand. ^^; )
"I LIKE WOMEN, OK?!"

Previously sort-of-translated here.
The guest likes snakes, so of course they're gonna have snakes in the studio. Yoko, Baru, Hina, Ryo and Tacchon do not like this. XD Maru and Yasu enjoy themselves though.

And this brings the awesome week to a close~ Three sub releases and a wallpaper post in the same week! Phew...
TOKIO celebrate their tenth anniversary by taking a trip to Kyoto all by themselves
Spot translator: basil_ovelby
The video comes in 3 parts, and I apologise for not doing all the on-screen captions... timing them all was just too tiring. ^^; Have a highlight summary along with the links:

Shiwake∞ 2011.09.10 - josoushita danshi cut
Starring Shibutani Subaru, Yokoyama You and Nishikido Ryo. With Murakami Shingo, Maruyama Ryuhei, Ohkura Tadayoshi and Yasuda Shota, of course.
It's a two-for-one day today, so there's also a very short clip from Hey Hey Hey 11.11.07 where Yoko, Hina and Maru show up in a VTR during Arashi's appearance on said show. :)
( subs subs subs )
So, be on the lookout - provided my internet doesn't go bonkers all of a sudden, there'll be wallpapers and subs (K8, TOKIO... maybe V6?
Maybe a couple of sort-of-translations too? (there are several Shiwake bits I think should be shared with the world~~ 8} )
Tacchon and Baru look the most upset about the prospect of snakes in the studio.
