coolohoh: Biohazard (Default)
Cos the morning/noon rush is finally over.

Woke up rather late this morning... 10:30am, or almost 11? So I stumbled out of bed and went right to my computer... For some reason I didn't start playing games and stuff on my phone in bed... Maybe cos it was late enough already and I'd laid in bed for long enough.

And the first thing I saw? A link to some news about Are You Happy DVD in Japanese... There was something about Japonism Arena too and I was like, what? They released both at the same time? Crap I don't have enough $$$ left???

Turns out that Japonism came with the LE of AYH DVD. So I ordered the LE in blu-ray... and since I'm broke I'll have to wait for my pay to come before I can order the RE in DVD - since the bonus content is the same in DVD for both versions...

So yeah... Then I scrambled to put together my Nihongo Manabu post. My second post in two days thanks to Arashi news... Haven't done a review for that site in like three weeks >< 

Then after putting a basic post together... It was time to pimp the links on FB and stuff... After that I opted to have some lunch before continuing to add information to the post... Then I made the news post to [community profile] storm_freaks ... Together with the jweb updates... And finally I processed some membership applications for SF - both on LJ and DW. And now... I'm done. Kinda. Still have to add more pre-order links to the NM post. But yeah... What a crazy, hectic morning.

The DVD. It's crazy. The sort of bonus it comes with. The LE is basically like... Buy one concert, get one concert free. Only that it's definitely NOT free because the LE is way more expensive than the RE. And the RE? Comes with documentary of the AYH concert... From the time when they were still conceptualizing the concert right till the very end. I heard they filmed rehearsals and all too. GOSH. Rehearsals! Precious precious footage. Must have it... Yes... Need to wait for my pay to come cos I'm broke. Gosh.... I'm totally forced to buy both versions this time... It'll be the first time I'm buying both editions....

Sigh. Second and last week left of my vacation... 

That's all for now I guess...

Series Title: The Chronicles
Author: Biohazard Geeky Nutcracker [ profile] coolohoh
Rating: G
Pairing: OT5
Summary: The land of Vihar has been thrown into chaos. Is there anyone with the bravery and skills to save the world?

More about the fic: An epic fantasy, with magic, swords, and archery. The Chronicles tells tales of friendship and adventure as our heroes work to save Vihar!

Disclaimer and notice to all readers: This is a really long fic, over 60 chapters and I'm still maybe... halfway through the story. I'm determined to finish this series though! Each chapter is really short, typically under 500 words... So I'll try and post a chapter daily to make up for the short chapters. Don't ask me why I make each chapter so short. It just is. That's how it ends up and that'll be how I post it. It's more like a drabble series? Only that each chapter is generally slightly longer than even the looser definitions of a drabble...

I've mentioned many JE characters in my story, but I don't actually follow any JE group besides Arashi. Please do not take offense if your favourite JE idol was OOC, unfairly represented or anything... I'm merely using their names because it makes it easier for me to write when I have a face to refer to, rather than completely making up a new character. (Not that there aren't made up characters too but... nevermind.)

Comments are most welcomed. Anything beside complain about the short chapters (see above). I hope you'll enjoy the story!

A new chapter will be posted daily. Check back everyday or join [ profile] nutty_arashi to receive updates!

Title: Handrails
Length: One Shot (Around 1k words in total - English and Japanese)
Rating: G
Pairing: OT5
Summary: Sho was scared, and Arashi decided to make Jun the scapegoat.

A/N: This started off with me trying to write the Arashi dialogues in Japanese (which is admittedly something that I've wanted to do before, but have never actually carried out.) Then I decided to might as well try and write the whole thing in Japanese instead. So I did, and later on added in the English version. It's not a direct translation, and the English version has parts that's not written in Japanese and vice versa. I hardly have any Japanese writing experience/practice, and attempting to write a fic in Japanese is a first, so pardon all and any mistakes.

Background to the story:

Basically, this person tweeted that during the miles away song on the 7th Jan 2017 Fukouka concert, Sho's lifter, and Sho's only, had a problem and the handrails did not come up. I've not been to the concert but... Based on past experience, Arashi's concert lifters go really really high up. I would be terrified for sure, standing on that little platform with no handrails. Even with the handrails it doesn't help that much... Those handrails look so thin and frail... Poor Sho!

Now finally on to the story:

It's your fault! No it's YOUR fault! )

Crossposting the following from [ profile] storm_freaks.

Just what... two more weeks or so till the year ends (and I can start using my Are You Happy? planner.)

The end of the year is a pretty great time to do a little reflection excersise.... And since I'm going on holiday from Sunday, and I've yet to pack anything... Thought I'd try to get my online posts all done today so yeah. Pardon my two posts in a row thing.

So... I'll pose a question in bold, then answer it for myself... Then you can answer the questions in bold in your comments as well. How does that sound? Questions will include both personal and Arashi related questions. I'm taking my questions and modifying them from this post, in case you're interested. (If you're a iOS/mac user, Day One is a superb journelling app, love it tons. Do give it a look!)

Are we ready?

Let's go!

A/N: Sorry this isn't the tako fic many of you have been waiting for... I kinda wrote myself into a corner for that one. But this...

My name is Sakurai Sho. )

It's been a long time since I actually talked about Arashi in my blog... I think? But wells...

Say in a typical middle/high school class of maybe 30 - 40 students... Of course, my answer will be based on what I've experienced in SG and what little I know about the education system in Japan.

Assuming that all 5 of them gets into the small class as I am, and none of us knew each other, even among the 5 Arashi members... How would they segregate into?

Ohno would probably be the weird freak in class who's always slouching in the corner drawing manga on his textbooks. Always scoring really low in tests and mocked by all the teachers and bullies... Unless it's art class of course. He's the art freak after all. He'd probably be one of the loners in class.

Sho would be the hardworking top student. Prefect. Class monitor. Whatever. Loads of leadership positions. He'll try his best to get into every advanced subject program he can. And he'll probably make it for most of them. And did I mention that he's a nice guy too? If you ask him nicely, he'll actually explain how to do your homework for you. Too perfect.

Jun. The guy who's erm. Constantly wooing girls, whether intended or not. He's the other Mr. Perfect in the class, in terms of looks and trying to be cool. Often times he ends up trying too hard that it's hilarious. But if you actually get to work with him, you'll discover that he's actually pretty smart too. And nice. Quite the gentlemen.

Aiba, the sports guy. He's into every sport, always acing the PE classes. He's not very book smart, but who cares, that dude is way on track to getting an athletic scholarship, some even say he'll represent Japan next time. And it's not that he doesn't study, it's just that studying through books doesn't work for him.

Nino. Another loner. The gamer geek who hangs out with other geeks in the school, and sadly none of the geeks are in the same class. You'll find him huddled in a corner of the rooftop and playing on this DS, either alone or with other fellow geeks.

Hmm... I'll stop here for now. I think I should develop this into a mini fic. Fantastic classmates and where to find them or something. :P

Edit: The Fantastic Classmates and Where to Find Them fic is finished!

Summary: A long time ago, there lived a dragon called Shabu Shabu...

A/N: For the particular person who finds the sound of the words "shabu shabu" fascinating.

It’s a terrifying monster that shoots lightning out from it’s eyes! )



The 'Shabu Shabu' rock in Kek Lok Si Temple in Penang. No, it's not about the Legend of Shabu Shabu. Yes, it's in Chinese. No, I'm too lazy to squint my eyes to try and make out what it's talking about.

Special thanks to unsup and family for bringing me around and providing the prompt for this story.

Shabu shabu, in case you didn't know, is a Japanese hotpot dish of thinly sliced meat and vegetables.

So... I was supposed to be doing confocal this morning... But thanks to the news of Japonism concert DVD release... I ended up doing *some* lab, then spending my time pre-ordering my LE DVD, and of course, making my NM post.

So click here for more information (and pre-order links)!

I was a little late to order I guess... The CDJapan server was already laggy... And I had to refresh a lot... Loads of errors, timeouts and what not.... I didn't even manage to see my order confirmation page lol! But yeah I got the confirmation email (thank goodness that is not delayed!) and later on it showed up properly on my account info so that's good. Forgot to use up my CDJapan points though. Oh wells... :X

Sad that there's no extra footage and stuff. Nope, of course there's no arena footage either. Way too early for that. JE will probably come out with a separate DVD for arena and rip us of our $$$ next year. *shrugs* Can't wait to finally see the Japonism concert though! Ohno's solo and his umbrella magic... Now that'll be interesting.

Okays. I should head down to the lab for some confocal now. Ciao!

It's been a long week...

JLPT tmr and I have no doubt about how I'm going to fail N1. Cos I was too greedy and decided to skip N2... And cos real life has been taking too much of a toll on me and I've not been able to find the enegy to study.

I actually had some time on my hands this week since I took sick leave from work on Thurs and Fri... But well... I was sick. And just unable to concentrate on getting those Japanese grammar into my thick head. So yeah... All the time wasted. Still not really well now... But better... At least I'm able to function... I just felt like curling up in bed all day on thurs and fri... It's amazing how some food poisoning related contipation and bloatedness can make you feel so bad... I couldn't even sleep at night... Hence the reason why I raised the white flag and went to the doctor....


Power of the Paradise!

Nope, I didn't watch the whole Music Day show... But I did see Arashi's Power of the Paradise performance and boy do I love that song!

So cheerful, upbeat, hopefull... And unlike Akashi, this one is fast paced. I love fast paced songs. Is it... club or something? Music genres... *shrugs*

I've updated nihongo manabu with a post about the new single. Upcoming new single at least. Please check out the post! XD

As I was researching for the post... Arashi just... Amazes me. It's the 5th bloodly hell time Sho would be covering for the olmypics... And it's the 6th time Arashi is providing the NTV Olympics theme song. Just... blows your mind doesn't it?


That's all from me for now!
