SMAP's last SmapxSmap performance.



There are so MANY tributes pouring in for SMAP and softbank released one hell of a CM. Legit, crying. Thank you.













I haven't the heart to watch any morning news coverage because legit, all there is, is crying.
Finally finished all the singles! Sorry it took so long, I got distracted with some actual translation work :P I also finally finished up the albums with Mr.S as well!

Welp, now what. Anything I've missed? The Smile Senshi Otoranger single is of course on my list, but I'd be happy to take suggestions for any other SMAP-related songs! :D

nakai masahiro no black variety

Does anyone know if any smap communities have subbed any videos of nakai masahiro no black variety? I've seen when domoto tsuyoshi guest appeared as well as when morning musume have appeared. It's a really interesting show and am keen to see more!

Cheers to anyone who can direct me/tell me where to find it!

song translations - smap singles cont'd

21-40 done!

Also, probably old news by now, but a 50-song best album is going to be released December 21st, for which we can vote what songs we want to have on it. Looks like only one vote per person, though :P The voting site is at smap25years(dot)com (or google smap 25, it should come up), and voting is open until October 4th, 23:59 Japan time. Vote away! :D

Also also, a new Clip! SMAP! PV Collection will be released December 28th. Ancient PVs in Blueray!

Personally, I'm pretty sure I'm going to vote for BEST FRIEND, but I'm also partial to Orange and Arigatou... I kind of want Smile Senshi Otoranger on there though

song translations - smap singles

While it's not the anniversary I might have hoped for, I still gotta celebrate for what they mean to me :)

Starting with finally translating the singles!

So far, 1-20 are complete, plus most of the A sides. More to come soon!

Sono toki, Heart wa nusumareta

Hello , did subtitles for Sono toki, Heart wa nusumareta exist?
if not maybe softh subs in another laguage or something?


Two new essays!
In which Tsuyoshi celebrates finishing Yama no anata, gets a brain scan to make sure he hasn't messed up one too many backflips, and attempts to improve his singing through (drunken) karaoke.
( I Did Actual Work This Year, Too )
( Maybe I've Gotten Old  Going to Shrines is Relaxing )


Two new essays!
Featuring the continued adventures of Tsuyoshi learning how to use a computer, waxing poetic about music and old SMAP albums, and his trip to meet Ronaldinho in Barcelona.
( Music is Amazing  Even Now, I'm Still Inexperienced )
( Spain Fits Me So Perfectly I'd End Up Completely Useless )


Two new essays! In which Tsuyoshi doesn't fall in love with any Denmark ladies because they're taller than Shingo, and learns some new massage techniques that he won't be using on his fellow bandmates.
( In Which I Talk All About My Trip to Denmark )
( With My Hair Cropped Short, I'm Working On a Movie! )

Happy Birthday Tsuyopon!

Here's to Tsuyopon's 42nd birthday! Because 42 is a good age to be<3

In celebration, here are the first five essays from Okiraku2, Tsuyoshi's ode to everything made of denim essay collection featuring his thoughts on life, the universe, and everything. But especially jeans. And Shingo.

Koi to Ongaku Final

It's been a week since I went for Koi to Ongaku 3 or Final as they called it. Thought I should write a proper report for this for my own keepsake. My memory is really so bad now that I can't really remember much of the previous 2 musicals I went in 2012 and 2014. So I better penned this down before I forgot all about it again in another few years haha. This is gonna be very very loooooooong though. I'm serious about noting down what I need to remember. XD

Koi to Ongaku Final 25-27 FebCollapse )

an update

It's felt like the longest couple of weeks in my life, but the most recent word from the sports papers (unfortunately our only sources of 'news' in this whole mess) is that Matchy arranged a dinner on the night of the 21st with SMAP, TOKIO, Arashi, Julie, and possibly others (and possibly Iijima as well? the articles I found didn't agree on that part). Mary and Johnny were apparently not there, and in general it seems to have been a "welcome-back" party with a lot of reminiscing about the past. The message, at least according to the papers, is that we can hope for more SMAP+kouhai appearances and a celebration of SMAP's 25th debut year. There's a lot still unanswered, and so far no word that I know of from SMAP themselves, but here's hoping the papers are utterly, absolutely right for once!

In the meantime, since Monday there have also been quite a few remarks of support from various celebrities, and well as change.org petitions in support of SMAP and calling for Mary's dismissal.

From my own impression watching tonight's SmaSTATION, Shingo looked tired but not upset, not energetic but not forcing a smile either. Hopefully we'll hear something from him on his j-web soon...

The end?

SMAP's chief manager, Iijima Michi (58), resigned from Johnny's board of directors Jan 12, leaving the company next month.

SMAP breaking up. Kimura Takuya to stay in Johnny's, the rest to leave and go independent.

a small sales post

I will be moving on August 6th, and am getting rid of some magazines and books-- take a look if you're interested! I have a few things I'm selling for the price I got them for ($1-$5) + shipping, as well as several magazines I'm willing to send pages from for only the cost of shipping.

Please let me know by August 4th at the latest if you're interested in anything!
