Ye-ah. My wallpaper muse wandered away again. Or rather, I ran out of inspiring and usable scans. :( Someone point me to a good source!
Anyway I decided to throw out whatever I've done today - since it's MatsuJun's birthday and I have a few Jun pieces :D

Most are 1440x900, with a few versions in 1280x1024. Lockscreen wallpapers (optimised for iPhone ^^) are at the end.

This post contains pieces featuring: Matsumoto Jun, Kanjani8, Nishikido Ryo, Ohkura Tadayoshi, Ohno Satoshi, Sakamoto Masayuki and Yokoyama You. A happy birthday to MatsuJun~!

Attempting to distract myself from a sudden bout of emo-ness.



The pronounciation is all over the place, but no surprise there. XD 
I'm quite fond of the harmony - and the fact that the whole thing sounds so doowop-ish. ♥ I do wish that Sakamoto was more prominent in it because as far as I can tell he's just holding down the bass line. Then again, he does have the steadiest voice of the lot...

C'mon, Johnny-san, get these guys a proper album of their own already! They're probably the best (vocal) sound in your agency. haha

I like Heikeha. Or rather, the six remaining members of Heikeha. XD

It helps that my favourite member of TOKIO is in there.


And Tonisen too. ♥

But first, a small rant:
I was skimming through an article in a journal on some Russian historical film written by one of my lecturers. When I came to this, my jaw dropped:
...while also suggesting that [the characters] have been worn out by various competing histories and fantasies (such as Disney's "Anastasia").

What?! Anastasia wasn't by Disney!! It's a Don Bluth work from 20th Century Fox! *staaaaareee* Evidently she and the editors of the Film Quarterly are also not very privy to the animation scene.

Gah.

Ok. Back to GeI.
When the description of this vid said that Sakamoto takes this 10-year-old boy to Spain to see Real Madrid, I downloaded it immediately. XD

Fun stuff in there...

musicmind may not have blown me away as Vibes did or amuse me as much as Love & Life or have as many songs that I liked as Voyager, but... there were definitely parts that I liked.

I liked how there was a sort of jazzy feel to the whole concert, mostly because they had a brass section in addition to the usual band... and because the musicians weren't hidden away somewhere - they were in plain sight on either side of the stage and whenever any of V6 wandered near enough, the tracking spotlight would also end up illuminating whichever musician was nearest XD I think there was a sequence where they got the brass section (or was it the guitars?) to kind of join in the song. I thought that was really quite nice :)

Their Christmas medley - Silver Bells/Lonely Holy Night/2nd Bell - was a huge favourite of mine. I was kind of glad that they didn't include Miracle Starter since I don't like it quite as much as those other three songs :P
There was a simple little candle sequence during Lonely Holy Night that I thought was a nice touch. Nothing fancy, but the simplicity suited the atmosphere.

And it's just amazing how Okada Junichi - barely visible in the half-light - can make an action as plain as blowing out a candle look... stunning.


Read on for V6 and Eito~ )

(whoa, I haven't posted for about 5 days! Longest gap in a while... Why on earth did I post so much in March? o_O )
So I rewatched the episode of GeI where the HanaDan cast were the guests and they had a HanaDan quiz for several chosen fans to compete in, the prize being a small spot in one of the HYD2 episodes.

The bit at the start was soooooo funny.


"It's the RED TAG!"

I've been going through my video folders lately... and I keep coming across random vids that I wish were subbed or that I wish I could sub. The list just keeps growing! @_@ hahaha

One would be part of the 2002 Johnny's Sports Day, namely the part where the representatives of J-White and J-Red have a little contest in order to pick their "cheer teams" (or whatever you call it) from the B-Rap school (GeI, yay!). I like this part because J-Red was represented by Taichi, MatsuJun and Okada. With that combination, it's a 100% elenniel bias. :P
The "cheers" that resulted from the nanshiki Globe duo (Red) and the Anko the KANCREW trio (White) were hilarious too, making fun of the various JE guys. The KANCREW one especially. XD They managed to poke fun at KinKi Kids, Jun, Okada and Nagase among others. lol~


This afternoon I downloaded one ep of VVV6 - because there was Will Smith and Okada. How could I resist that combination?? I watched it and cracked up. Especially when Will decided that he had to give Okada something in return for the wonderful ootoro (or was it sushi? I forgot) that Okada just gave him... and he picked up a pillow from the hotel sofa and handed it to a slightly puzzled Okada, saying that in America, they give these for special days. "You can open it later." LOL ( I should screencap that part one day...)


Then just now, I found a 2003 GeI episode lurking in my Arashi folder. And I soooooo want to sub this or see this subbed. Why?

This is why:

Let's end my birthday month with another V6 sub~

Nagano and Go help the Narita High cheerleading team recruit more guys by making a PV... and then Sakamoto and Nagano investigate the existence of a Shinshuu version of GeI (with hilarious results XD )

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Nagano-mama would make a good newscaster - he's so calm when reading the cues~

I love the little wiggle of excitement Sakamoto does when he's on air for the Shinshuu GeI. And that dorky grin and nod too. XD The contrast between that excitement and the poor fellow's panic and alarm later is just hilarious. ahahahah (Also... V6's leader looks darned good in that brown shirt. *v* )

And I couldn't resist inserting the few technical notes in the cheerleading segment. (I mean, I couldn't very well have people thinking that the pictures were comic strips drawn for GeI when they're actually storyboards... 8D )

Nagano sounds like he's straining a little


Jun and Junichi... )


I don't want to leave K8 out of today's flail post (which might be the last flail post of the year for me? Depends on how busy I am the next few days), so here's me flipping out over the January Potato scans from Vendy. =D
Pink and purple... )

Oh! Oh! I just watched this old clip of V6 on Music Station - when they performed Mejirushi no Kioku... and Okada played the piano! ♥ ♥ Every time I watch him play the piano I just melt... :3

Ok I'm done. ^^ Flu symptoms forcing me to bed now.

I happened to stumble upon the VCD of this Gakibara All-Stars episode in a music store and it was going for a really cheap price. I had next to no idea what was in it besides that some of the JE guys were in it (Takki and Arashi were on the cover) but I bought it anyway...

...And had so much fun watching the Kansai Juniors' segment that I just had to sub it. :D So I ripped it from the VCD and it became the second video ever that I subbed but I decided not to post it immediately and kept it as my Christmas present for the V6 and Eito comms. =D
It's a little 'basic' because at the time I hadn't yet learnt certain tricks of subbing (like having multiple colours for one line). I could re-do it, but I've no patience to re-encode and reupload everything again so this'll have to do. ^^

Kansai Jrs vs 20th Century

The Kansai Juniors' representatives - Yoko, Baru, Hina and (an almost unrecognisable) tiny Ryo - were given the challenge of telling their seniors, 20th Century, to retire.

For the benefit of Eito fans who might not be so familiar with V6, 20th Century is the older half of V6 and consists of Sakamoto Masayuki (V6's leader), Nagano Hiroshi and Inohara Yoshihiko.
To give you an idea of exactly why this might be so terrifying... The age gap is quite large - Sakamoto is ten years older than Yoko and Baru, and Nagano and Inocchi aren't too far behind. And to top it all off, Sakamoto is reputed to be quite a scary person. They say even Johnny-san is somewhat afraid of him. XD So you can imagine the then-Kansai Juniors' apprehension at having to tell them to retire. :P

There were some utterly priceless lines in here. XD My favourites were...
Nagano to Kansai Jrs, while pointing at Sakamoto: Look carefully! In ten years you'll all become like that too!

Hina to Yoko: Stop talking. The more you talk, the higher the chance of you getting snapped at!
