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~!

Haven't done these sort-of-translations for a while... 8Da Let's hope I got this one mostly right. hahah

This was from Janiben on 7 August 2013. (I was downloading a few random episodes trying to locate some amusing instances I saw on Tumblr... but none I downloaded were the right ones. Grrrr. Whyyyy can't people get into the habit of just inserting the episode date when they post stuff on Tumblr? It's so annoying and frustrating when I can't locate it. )

choices
The question is... something like "When travelling abroad, which of the following do you factor into your budget?" Something like that?
Options are:
A. Better hotel
B. Flight class - economy/business class
C. Stretch the length of the trip as much as you can
D. Yummy food!

("D" is the easiest to understand and translate XD )
And you can see who chose what from the screencap above.

The choices are supposed to reflect their approaches to marriage...

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

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

Ooh, lockscreen wallpapers... )

elenniel: (photoshop)
Yikes. I started making wallpapers again and then realised that I have SUCH a backlog of unposted wallpapers and I didn't even realise it. @_@ So here's a mixture of stuff that ought to have been posted last year and some newer ones that I just made.

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! )

In this episode of Janiben the guest, Nanao, has a passion for snakes (and reptiles in general). Naturally, the staff aren't going to miss a chance to make the Johnny's idols squirm... so they bring in two snakes and a lizard.

Tacchon and Baru look the most upset about the prospect of snakes in the studio.

Eito were just hilarious in the countdown con, weren't they?

(Clicking pics will take you to the full 1280x720 images - I don't like breaking my LJ theme with oversized images. ^^;)

Look at those gorgeous white suits. *v*

Oh, just loads of screencaps (more than 40?). Just a little bit from #21 and the rest is all #26 - well, not the whole ep, but just the most hilarious parts. Some Shiwake episodes or clips really need to be subbed, but my translating powers are just not there yet so this is the best I can do for now to share some K8 fun. ^_^
(I think these sort-of-translations are good practice for me. They force me to look up kanji I don't know.)

In Shiwake #21, Kanjani∞ have to figure out which parent-child pairs are not really parent-and-child. Tacchon goes third after Yoko and Ryo who both succeed in guessing that the parents and children in pairs #4 and #5 are not truly related to each other.

21-1
Tacchon decides to focus on pairs #1 and #8.

It's been a bit of a bad day, so to cheer myself up by feeling like I'm actually of some use, I'm sharing wallpapers. ^^ (I'm reminded of what Yoko said in his greeting at the 8UPPERS con: "I'm not really talented, but one thing I can do is make you happy.")[Poll #1802461]

Ok, wallpapers!
Here we go~ )
elenniel: (sukiyanen)
I just have to LOL over this episode of Shiwake. So this is a partial recap/summary/translation post. 8D (I'm surprised no one has subbed this or any Shiwake ep yet. Or at least there's no sub that I'm aware of.)

Be ye warned: lots of screencaps (and spoilers?).

It's K8 vs a team of geinin-san and they have to take turns to guess which 4 of the 8 women are actually guys. Yoko goes second for K8 and he decides to focus on #1 and #2. He asks them to demonstrate their expressions when mad at a guy, and then after the guy apologises. They do as he asks (and it's really rather obvious from their expressions, I think. haha) but before he makes his decision, he decides to request that #7 do so as well.

shiwakeSP_01

The whole lot of them have found #7 very amusing because she looks completely bored by the proceedings. And for some reason Baru seems to find her charming. Uh, ok, Baru...

(I feel like I'm this nitpicky fashion commentator when it comes to JE. XD )

So K8 designed their own Fight jerseys. Just for the record, I really really enjoyed watching that particular behind-the-scenes video. Someone needs to sub it. hahah

elenniel's comments )


And just a heads-up: look out for more wallpapers soon? :)
.
elenniel: (kanjani8)
Let me show you my thought process regarding the outfits whilst watching the making of K8's Tsubusa ni koi PV.


Yoko - hmm, pretty good (considering I don't usually like that sort of dull mustard-ish yellow). Hina - I don't think that slightly desaturated red flatters him, but overall the look is ok. Maru - flourescent orange; automatic "argh, NO". Ryo - I like that green and I kinda sorta like the purple, but that green + that purple + orange just reads "The Joker" to me. Yasu - flourescent pink; also automatic "argh, NO." (And as for that hair... no, Yasu, NO.)

*is in the process of subbing a Janiben ep - which might take a while*

Yoko, on how models always talk about eating a lot: I can't see how it's possible with a body like that!
Tacchon, in agreement: Nope.

Me to Tacchon: LOOK WHO'S TALKING. >_>

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~ )

Can I declare today "Make Elenniel Happy Day?" haha
In celebrating the anniversary of their collaboration, ohmiya_sg and enshinge seem to have inadvertently delivered an early 誕生日プレセント to me with that slew of new subbed vids... Even including a Gakkou e Ikou episode and Kisarazu Cat's Eye clip! whee~~

Okay. On to the real stuff. My turn to churn out a few small subs!

TSD SP [2008.12.27] - Aiba and the Dolphin Stunt
Iruka! )


Also... (very) short Eito radio clips~!
Kikujani - 22 November 2008 & 20 December 2008
(I hope I noted down the dates correctly... 8D )

Kikujani Eito~~~ )


NO UPLOADING TO STREAMING VIDEO WEBSITES.
Or I shall be very displeased.


Comments appreciated as usual... and all that. XD Go pay tribute to enshinge too~!

And I shall go sleep now. Will post this to the Arashi/K8 comms later I guess. So, f-list, you get to see all these first XD F-list and the others who watch my LJ, that is. ^^
elenniel: (matsujun3)
Music Station Super Live, V6 & Arashi - Comments typed as I watched them on Friday... Bracketed comments I'm adding now.

okada <3 <3 <3
Nagano!

[Why not Chou? :( ]
but thankfully no frills and fringes
[on the clothes]
Okada-Sakamoto harmony <3
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.

elenniel: (okada2)
I am happy today. :D (Well, apart from a little mishap in the afternoon that left me with a bruise on my left knee and a bruise/sore spot on the back of my right thigh. -__-" )

SO! The latest Hey! Hey! Hey! shows us that apparently Okada-san is back to his handsome clean-shaven self. =D


♥ ~

But before I go on about the episode, let me first squeeze out two other small flails.
When I saw that [livejournal.com profile] usagil00lchan had new scans of Eito up, my mind totally lit up with the word "SCANS!!" in bright shiny dancing letters. )It probably helped that as a preview pic she used a real pretty one of Tacchon. :P )
This is the pretty preview pic that caught my eye:

Isn't he gorgeous? *dreamy sigh*

Yokocho looked fairly good in the Popolo shoot too. =D (But not so good in the Myojo shoot)



Okay! Back to V6-sama!

That massage must have really hurt... )
elenniel: (taichi)
Good thing I have a whole bunch of screencaps to laugh about. Takes my mind off upsetting and annoying things.

So on today's menu, we have K8's Janiben and TOKIO's DASH. :D

Janiben with Kanemura Yoshiaki
Or, The One Where Tacchon Loses His Mind

They had a little quiz thingy where the ones who got the correct answers would get to eat some really nice food, recommended by Kanemura-san (apparently an ex-baseball player).

In short: Yoko was the smartest and/or the luckiest, as he managed to answer all three questions correctly and so got to try all the good food. Tacchon and Maru were the unfortunate ones who got it wrong every time. Hina had it easy; since as the main host he didn't have to take part, he got to try it all without having to exert himself to answer questions.

Lots of caps! )


Eeeeek. It's 3.30! I took 2 hours to write this post... @_@ Time to sleep, time to sleep.
elenniel: (ohkura)
LOL. Eco Week...

Tacchon (on bike, via live video feed to the Touch Eco 'base'):
Ato na... My manager tells me my phone keeps ringing.* Ryo-chan, I can't answer the phone right now so please stop calling me!

x)


* I only caught one or two words of this sentence, but I'm hazarding a guess that that's what he said, given the context.
