It's been a week so I ported my latest fics over from RNA... and while editing the masterpost I decided to count and see how many of each pairing I've written. Yama wins hands down lol! And to think that i still claim that my OTP is Ohmiya hahahaha! I still have a one pairing that I'm completely missing - Aimiya. Even in RNA too, Octavia hasn't written any Aimiya either! And then of course, there are several pairings that I've only written as side pairings, so that's one thing I'd like to correct. That's a total of 53 completed fics, well 54 if you count Spy Arashi? Which is NOT finished though. But it's not too bad I reckon.

Towards the end of last week I got busy in the lab again. It's kinda like an all or nothing for me? Either I'm really really busy, or not at all? Well I'm supposed to be doing some lit searches today too. And I JUST got an email with more lab work to do... well not really. Because there's not enough samples to fill a qPCR plate, so I was told to wait for more samples. So I guess that makes me sort of free today? :P I did happily spend the morning translating that news article after all. Oh! And the photos! Finally posted them last night! Well it was last night! But there was an error with marsedit/LJ, and while the photos uploaded while I was asleep, the post itself didn't get posted till I woke up this morning and tried again. Hopefully the holiday photos will follow soon. I need to post the holiday photos soon really. To instagram, LJ, FB.... then I can delete them from my phone, because both my phone and iCloud is running out of space. It's like, almost 3 GB of photos. Over 1.5k of them maybe? Yeah. LOADS of photos. Right. That's it for now. For this post at least.

Lastly... my post holiday to-do list...

1) Watch kouhaku - done
2) Watch kouhaku related promotion shows, other shows from last year - in progress
3) Watch Arashi/Tokio shows from 1st Jan -  done
4) Watch Arashi 3rd Jan shows -  done
5) Send postcards and gifts to my friends - more or less done
6) Edit/write fanfics, post them - because I've neglected rna for so long!
7) Update RNA master posts
8) Correct the post formatting of octavia's fics
9) Read octavia's fics
10) Promote octavia's fics
11) Post photos of my 3rd jan outing
12) post about my holiday. Loads of photos... probably gonna be 1 entry for each day?
13) find something to translate - text
14) translate that something, and post to lj, because this lj has been neglected for so long
15) translate some arashi video, because dna has been neglected for months
16) membership applications - done!
17) Read Times Techland - done!
18) Catch up on LJ (my friend feed), I'm currently 36 PAGES behind. Ya know the url thing? At the back where it's like skip=? Yup, it's 360 now. 360 entries in my feed while I've been away. Grant I'm not interested in reading all of them, and some a repeats (because I friended them, and they posted in a comm etc), but still... that's a freaking hell lot of pages to go through!
19) clear my LJ inbox. Cleared about 50 earlier so it's down to 497 now... ya know when i came back from holidays, i have over 100 emails to clean up! ><

So basically, I'm only left with 1) Posting my holiday photos. 2) Translating something for dna, and 3) catching up wit my LJ feed... which has grown even longer since then because I have not been reading my friend feed. Sigh.

At least I'm only left with last week's Shiyagare, and Nino's drama to watch! Managed to watch Nino-san and Aiba Manabu last night while doing my mixlr broadcast. Hehehehe XD

No seriously... I've got another fic idea floating in my head... But well I shall stash it for later... and get subbing. It's been two weeks hahaha! Since our last release...

I just download Kiseki by Greeeen the day before, cos I love Nino's cover so much. The original is really nice too! And well yesterday, I was watching the AnS with Sato Takeru on it... the one where they went to the batting center and Ohno was poking Jun's butt.... that was one hell of a funny episode... from Nino and his air con remote controls... and we finally getting to see skinny Neen's arms... he rarely wears sleeveless! Cos he's too skinny hahahaha!

But anyway... lo and behold! Kiseki was playing when Sato was batting! I was like 'OMG THAT's THE SONG I'VE BEEN LISTENING TO ALL DAY!' Well not all day literally. I listened to 'my songs knows what you did in the dark' for two whole days - just that one song on replay, but yesterday I changed it to a list of 7 songs on replay, including both Kisekis. And right now the original is playing XD

Ah I just love this song! Another ones of my new addiction! Shounen by Keitaku is really nice too. Love the original as well as Neen's rendition. So many new unofficial songs that I've discovered cos I was doing the mixlr broadcasts! Like Hoshi ni Naru Made and Doko ni Itemo from Sho Beat... love em loads too!

Well so. I've been listening to the Taipei Chinese Version of Kansha Kangeki Ame Arashi a lot lately, thanks to the mixlr radio broadcasts. So Ei Chen posted the lyrics on FB today, and I've decided to translate it into English! Well I did a google search later and realised that (obviously) other people have translated it already, but this is mine version, and while some parts are really similar, I think I did a better job with the back part of the lyrics. Oh wells. Enough of self praise, here we go!

Kansha Kangeki Ame Arashi, Chinese Version
Warning: I am translating it from the Chinese lyrics that someone posted on LJ. I do not know if the Chinese lyrics are 'accurate', because Arashi themselves did not erm... pronounce every thing properly. I can't make out entire sentences of their singing so... but hey, they tried their best ne? ;)

Also, I'm translating line by line only, so between lines the sentence might not flow. If you find the meaning of some lines weird, that’s just the way it is in Chinese. Either the Chinese lyrics are wrong or the song writer wrote it erm.. strangely. (Venting your frustrations on yourself anyone? That was strange to me haha! The rest seems ok though.)

Overall, there are some parts that are quite similar to the Japanese lyrics, but there are some changes. :)

Title: Sticky Summers
Rating: R-rated
Pairing: Sakumoto
Word count: ~3.4k words, one shot
Summary: The weather is hot. Jun finds a way to help Sho cope with the heat.
A/N: Written specially for [ profile] octavialao! Happy belated birthday! :p Hey, you should be glad though, Nino's 'bday' fic is still in the making hahaha! :P Well the idea started when we were talking about random stuff on mixlr chat, and me and Kate both wrote a fic to the requested 'ice cream' and 'chocolate syrup' prompt. You can read Kate's version here, you'll need to join the community to read it though! Hmm... the ending... well I hope its alright... but this was the best smut I've written as of yet, so, I hope you'll enjoy it! Ja, dozo!


The weather outside was a ridiculous 40 degrees, and needless to say, the citizens of Toyko were dying in the heat. Swimming pools and water theme parks were overcrowded, and any business that had something related to cooling off were doing extremely well.

Sakurai Sho, zero caster, had just finished a field report for the news program, and he was literally drenched in sweat. He pitied the person who'd have to dry clean his stinky, sticky suit later. At times like this he couldn't be more glad for the fact that all his clothing are provided by the TV station. He'd already had more than twice his usual amount of laundry to do because of all the additional cold water showers he'd been taking. Sho gladly changed into his casual wear in the van. Normally he'd only change back in the greenroom, but the weather has been getting way too hot lately. Sho vaguely wondered what 'summer program' Jun had waiting for him back home.

Jun had 'booked' Sho out for the whole Saturday afternoon. From whatever time Sho finished his zero field report till the end of the day, Jun was glad to fill it in for Sho. And boy what a great plan he had. Jun smirked as he turned the key to Sho's apartment, arms laden with groceries for use later. He sort out the groceries in the kitchen, putting whatever that needs refrigeration in the fridge. Then, he proceeded to prepare Sho's bedroom. Jun's heart raced as he prepared the bedding. Just thinking about what would happen later was enough to make him hard. Barely able to hold himself together, Jun hurriedly finished his preparations before heading out to the kitchen to prepare the ingredients for dinner.

Jun had just finished stir frying the vegetables for the pasta - with Jun, dinner was almost always pasta, when he heard the key turning.

"Tadaima...," an exhausted Sho said.

"Okaeri!" Jun chirped happily.

"Couldn't you have at least turned on the air conditioning?," Sho complained as he flopped down in front of the standing fan.

"Aw, I didn't want to waste so much electricity, but the air-con in your bed room is on..." Jun replied, causing Sho to perk up immediately.

"Go on, I'll join you in a moment". Sho didn't need to be told twice, he gulped down the last bit of water in his bottle before happily retreating to the comfort of the air conditioned room.

It only took Jun a little more than 10 minutes to clean up in the kitchen, but when he entered the bedroom, Sho was already fast asleep.

"Wakey wakey..." Jun said as he poked Sho. When he got no response however, Jun decided to try something more... interesting. Moving gently so as not to wake his lover up, he slowly tugged Sho's shirt up to reveal the white, smooth skin underneath. Even though Sho had not been working out in a while, his abs were still well defined. Jun took his time marveling at the well scrupled body of the rapper as he carefully scooped out a nice, round ball of chocolate ice cream. With a delightful whoop, the ball of ice cream landed on Sho's stomach with a resounding plop. With the ice cream scoop, Jun started pushing the ice cream ball around, leaving dark brown smears all over the white skin. It took a while before Sho woke up to find the cold brown mess all over his stomach.

"What on earth!" Sho exclaimed.

"What's this mess! My shirrrttttt!" Sho whined as he noticed some stains on his clean white shirt.

"Aw, come on, you just need to wash it. It'll come off!," Jun dead panned.

"Serves you right for falling asleep so fast!"

"Mou... couldn't you have at least let me take off my clothes first?" Sho complained once more.

"Why, that's such a great idea, why don't you do that now?" Jun laughed as he watch Sho struggle to get his shirt off, while trying not to let the ice cream drip onto his boxers and the bed sheets.

"Ah its cold!" Sho complained as he sneezed, causing the ball of ice cream to row over his boxers and the bed sheet.

"Ahhhhhhhhhh!" Sho let out a cry of agony as the melting ice cream smeared a brown line over the pristine white bed sheets.

"Oh no the mattress!" Sho groaned as he tried to yank the bed sheets up.

"Wait, what's this below...? Jun-kun mou... will you please stop laughing?" Sho groaned.

"You're so... funny... when your flustered like this Sho-chan...!" Jun said between laughs.

"I've already lined a plastic sheet over your mattress... and this is my bedsheets so shut up and just enjoy!" Jun chided. Sho's mouth formed into a 'O' shape.

"Oh... no wonder it felt kind of... crinkly when I slept just now.."

"You baka!" Jun replied as he smacked Sho in the head. Sho couldn't have been more glad that Jun does not wear rings while cooking, else he might have gotten a concussion already. Before Sho could react though, Jun was tugging roughly at his half taken off shirt.

"Now get this off before I rip into two for you!" Sho grunted as he took off the shirt obediently, he couldn't help but groan though, when he saw the brown mess all over his boxes.

"Mou! I swear this is NOT going to come off! Now I can't wear this out anymore!" Sho lamented.

"Why not?" Jun mocked, as he proceeded to slowly remove his own clothing. Purposely twisting his hips and putting on a show for his beloved.

"People will think that I've shitted in my pants!" Sho exclaimed.

"Well... you'll just have to color it with different flavors of ice cream don't we?" replied Jun with a wink.

Ignoring the sad, sticky remains of what used to be chocolate ice cream, Jun, now all in his naked glory, picked up the ice cream scoop from where it lay abandoned on the bed. Bending down to present Sho with a full view of his sexy butt, Jun picked up another tub of ice cream from the cooler box.

"Strawberry maybe?" he asked with a wink. Purposely flexing his muscles as he scooped up a nice round ice cream ball, Jun smirked as he pushed the ball of cold goodness towards the general direction of Sho's mouth. As Sho took a big bite into the ice cream, the said ball of ice cream left a big smudge of pink all around Sho's mouth as the ball missed its target.

"Look you're such a messy eater!" Jun smirked as he leaned in to lick the ice cream off for Sho. As Jun finished licking off the last of the ice cream, Sho moved in for a kiss. Parting his mouth to let Jun taste the cool ice cream, they savored in the sweet strawberry, tongues darting around and wrestling for control, before they finally broke apart to catch their breath.

"Opps..." Jun said as the remaining strawberry ice cream fell off the scoop onto Sho's chest.
"Uwah this is cold!" Sho exclaimed.

"Then let me warm it up for you" Jun replied as he pressed his chest against Sho's. Rubbing their bodies together, Jun tried to manipulate Sho to a sitting position.

*Splat* Sho looked down as he sat on something cold on the bed.

"Gosh... now people will seriously think I crapped in my pants!" Sho giggled as he looked down on the remains of the chocolate ice cream that he sat down on.

"Well... then let's give them all the reason to think that way then!" Jun declared as he pushed Sho till he is down on all fours on the bed, with his chocolate stained bottom proudly pointing up in the air.

"Give me a moment baby" Jun whispered, as he tied a shirt around Sho's eyes as a blindfold. Sho shivered in both excitement and the cold, as he wonder what other surprises Jun had installed for him.

"Do you know what goes well with ice cream?" Jun asked. Sho merely shook his head.

"Um, whipped cream?" Sho meekly ventured an answer. Being blindfolded always makes him meek, and Jun loved it when he was in control.

"Nice try, you love whip cream don't you?", Jun asked. Sho nodded as he heard the sound of whipped cream being squeezed out from the metal can.

"Ah... open up!", Jun cooed. Sho complied, and as he opened his mouth, a familiar member was pushed in. The only difference was that it was now coated in a thick foamy layer of whipped cream. Jun groaned in pleasure as Sho ran his tongue up and down the length of his member, savoring the cream while exploring each vein and each ridge. With each lick Jun could feel his manhood swelling up in anticipation. Fearing that he could no longer hold it in, Jun hurriedly withdrew, leaving Sho to bemoan the loss of his oversized pacifier.

"That... was a very good guess... but I very much prefer chocolate syrup to go with strawberry ice cream..." Jun said, still panting.

"Want to try it?" Jun asked. Sho could only moan in approval. With that, Jun dug out the bottle of chocolate syrup - Hershey's special dark chocolate, that he had specially packed in the ice to ensure it would be kept cold. Pulling Sho's boxers off with his left hand while scooping up more strawberry ice cream with the other, Jun freed Sho's eager member from its trappings.

"My my, excited aren't we?" Jun said, as he noted the pre-cum that was dripping from Sho's hardening member. Ignoring the dripping penis and the muffled cries from Sho, Jun turned his attention to the firm ass and the pink rose bud in the center. Dropping the scoop of ice cream onto Sho's ass, Jun rubbed the sticky mess all over the two butt cheeks. He let his fingers circle around the butt hole for sometime before finally slipping them in. One finger, two fingers, three fingers. Sho moaned in pleasure as Jun moved his fingers about in the tight hole. Finally, he removed the fingers. However, instead of the large member that Sho was expecting, something small and hard was slipped in instead.

"Eh nani...?" before Sho could ask any further however, Jun gave the bottle a hard squeeze. Thick, ice cold chocolate invaded Sho's insides. It was completely unexpected for Sho, and he gave a cry of surprise as the cold liquid started flowing up his anus.

"Hmm how are you enjoying it? There's strawberry ice cream all over your butt and there's chocolate up your ass, you're so delicious baby I could just ate you," Jun whispered by Sho's ear, teasing him as he squeezed in more chocolate.

"How do you like it? A chocolate enema..." Jun asked. Sho didn't reply, but merely took in large, deep breaths. Jun pulled out the bottle to let the air in before re-inserting it again.

"Ah you know what baby? I got a super huge bottle of syrup, specially for you. 1 litres ya know. And baby you'll going to be a good boy and take it all in for me!" Jun smirked.

"Unnnnnnn!" Sho cried as more of the cold, thick, sticky liquid invaded his rear. It was the third, or maybe the forth time Jun had re-inserted the bottle and he was starting to get really full. To make it worst, the cold chocolate was giving him bad cramps.

"Stop stop... it hurts!" Sho whimpered.

"Just a little more..." Jun replied, refusing to stop. When he was finally satisfied that he had almost squeezed out all of the chocolate syrup, Jun took out the nozzle of the squeeze bottle.

"Please I need to go!" Sho whined.
"Relax, the cramps will pass", June cooed again, while pouring the remaining bits of chocolate syrup onto his hands and using that to massage Sho's stomach. The cold chocolate inside, together with all the ice cream earlier had made Sho's belly very cool to the touch, and Sho shuddered a little as the relatively warm hands of Jun caressed his stomach.

"Jun..." Sho moaned again as another wave of cramps swept over his tummy. This time however, he could no longer hold it, and some of the chocolate syrup dripped onto the mattress.
"What did I tell you about holding it it?", Jun barked, as he gave Sho's butt cheeks a quick spanking. Sho winced as he tried to clench his ass tighter together.

"Oh goddd!", Sho yelled as Jun pried his butt cheeks open. More chocolate leaked out as Jun stuffed his engorged member into Sho's tight ass.

"Arghhh!" Sho yelled as the breach was made. That he had been clenching his ass really tightly to prevent leakage made the insertion particularly painful. On top of that, his insides had been all clenched up because of the cold contents.

"Argh so tight baby, urgnn so tight!" Jun exclaimed as he inserted the full length in. Sho was moaning similarly about the fullness of the additional load inside of him.

"Argggnnnhhhnnn," Sho cried as Jun started moving. Jun had purposely angled his thrusts such that he was hitting hard on Sho's prostate, and that was sending Sho both waves of pleasure and agony. Stars would fly and create waves of sexual arousal for Sho, but each time it would inevitably be followed by waves of cramps as pressing on the prostate increased his urge to urinate and defecate. That changed however, as Jun starting stroking ice cream and chocolate syrup over his eager member, in time with each thrust into his ass. Sho’s breathing got heavier as the sensations of pleasure hit him. He was soon seeing stars, and enjoying what was probably the best orgasm he had in months. They both ejaculated at the same time, collapsing on the bed in a sticky mess, both sweaty and panting from the adventure. Finally it was Sho who made the first move. Removing his blindfold, he pushed Jun off as he groaned and made a beeline for the toilet, clenching with butt checks together with his hands. Sho heaved a sigh of relief as he expelled into the toilet. His relief didn’t last long however, when the toilet door opened and the DoS stepped in. Sho’s cheeks flushed red as he realized his band mate was getting aroused from watching him defecate.

“Hmm… what a nice chocolate smell…” Jun commented as he sniffed the air.

“Little pumpkin,” Jun said, while raising an eyebrow.

“Since when did I allow you to take the blindfold off?” Jun asked.

“Oh its just as well, I still have some plain ol’, good vanilla ice cream left…. you love vanilla don’t you?” Jun teased, causing Sho’s face to flush even redder.

Everything we’ve done so far is anything but vanilla though…’, Sho thought, but he wisely kept his thoughts to himself.

“Aw, you’re so cute when you’re embarrassed!” Jun smirked. With that, Jun left the toilet to fetch the last tub of ice cream.
Sho was still shitting chocolate when Jun returned with the ice cream and a spoon - no more huge ice cream scoop, as Sho noted in relief, - in hand.

“Ahhhh open up!” Jun commanded as he scooped up a spoonful of vanilla ice cream and feeding it into the waiting mouth.

“You like it?” Jun asked.

“Unn… its delicious…” Sho replied hesitantly, unsure of what to expect. Jun scooped up another huge mouthful and fed it to Sho.

“You know, I think vanilla would go well with chocolate,” Jun stated matter-of-factly as he presented his once again erect soldier to Sho’s mouth, together with yet another spoonful of ice cream.

“Unnn tis shooo choldd…” Sho mumbled as more ice cream was stuffed into his mouth.

“Then maybe this will warm you up,” Jun smirked as Sho started sucking on the chocolate coated penis.

“Ahhhhhhh its cold ne?” Jun moaned as Sho ‘ate’ the whole length of the chocolate ‘lolli’. Moans of pleasure could be heard as Sho did his work. It was quite unlike the blow job Sho had given earlier. For one, his entire mouth was numb from all the vanilla ice cream than Jun had force fed him. Due to the numbness, his tongue could not make out the veins and ridges and trace him like he usually do. Instead, Sho found a particular spot that created a pleasant sensation as his tongue ran over it, and focus on rubbing that spot over and over again. Either way, Jun must have liked it though, because he soon released another load of seeds into Sho’s mouth.

“Gosh baby, that felt soon good, you did great!” Jun exclaimed as he bent down to give the newscaster a kiss. They were soon engaged in a battle of tongues though, and Jun could taste his vanilla chocolate favoured seed still in Sho’s mouth. They finally ran out of breath and stopped.

“Are you done with the toilet yet?” Jun asked.

“I… hope… soon maybe?” Sho stammered as he suddenly remembered that he was still sitting on the toilet bowl. He looked down only to see a dark brown mess.

“Ne, I’ll go clear up the mess then we can have a bath together okay?” Jun replied as he turned on the tap in the bathtub.

Picking up a towel he’d brought earlier, Jun wiped away the chocolate and ice cream stains on himself slowly, allowing Sho to enjoy the display.

“Ja ok… it’ll just… put the ice cream in the fridge and change your bed sheets ok? You can take a shower and get in the tub first while waiting,” Jun said as he slipped out into the bedroom.

The bath was a nice, relaxing affair. Sho just leaned back into the sturdy arms of Jun and let Jun caress and massage him. It was a long time since the duo had gotten into the bath together, and they just leaned onto each other and stay in the bath till the water started getting cold. Sho was getting sleepy but then as well, so Jun made the call to get out of the bath. Sho stretched a yawn as he pulled on his clothes.

“Sleepyhead!” Jun teased.

“That was tiring okay!” Sho protested, but Jun merely laughed.

“Okay, why don’t you take a nap while I go make dinner!” Jun suggested. Sho was only all too happy to flop onto his bed, breathing in the familiar scent of his washing powder as he marveled at how through Jun had been with his preparations. From the ice box to the plastic sheet below the bed sheets, Jun had thought of it all.

As expected of the planner in Arashi ne?’, Sho thought, as he drifted off to sleep.

Jun was engrossed in his cooking. The lobster bisque had taken him longer than expected, and he had to admit that he was tired. Both from his earlier exertions, and from the hot weather. Being in the kitchen didn’t help either. Sweat was dripping down his neck, and Jun was taking extra care to make sure nothing drips into his perfect soup. He was putting the finishing touches to his soup when a pair of strong arms hugged him from behind.

“Jun-kun, have I ever told you that you’re so sexy when you’re sweaty?” Sho asked.

“Only for the millionth time baby,” Jun smiled.

“Now why don’t you get the table set so that we can have dinner?” Jun continued, as he nudged his lover off so that he could bring the soup out to the dining room.

“Uwah! Umai!” Sho exclaimed as he tucked into the pasta and soup Jun cooked.

“I’m glad you liked it! Mou… the bisque took me so long to make today! Normally I only take half the time!” Jun lamented.

Sho chuckled as he replied, “Maybe it’s cos we had too much fun earlier? I’m really tired now you know?”

Jun shrugged. “Maybe…?”

“Wanna crash here for the night? We can watch some movies till we fall asleep, and go for the magazine interview together tomorrow!” Sho suggested.

“Sure! That would be great," Jun replied with a grin.

Perhaps it was their age catching up with them, Sho was fast asleep before they even reached the halfway mark of the first movie, and Jun himself was falling asleep too. He got up to switch off the TV before climbing back to bed.

“Hmm Jun-pon….” a half asleep Sho muttered as he flipped over and threw his arms over Jun, hugging him like a bolster.

Jun sighed a happy sigh has he returned the hug. He couldn’t be more glad to be in Arashi, to know people like his lover right next to him. Jun fell asleep with a happy smile on his face.

Wow! So many new subbing communities on LJ now, sugoi! So happy that the subbing community is becoming alive again! There are so many arashi shows right now waiting to be subbed :P

I just... signed up as a subber for Been wanting to try subbing for a while... cos yeah in truth, i do 'sub' like 70-80% of a show in my reviews... so yup.. finally signed up for a job. Actually been asking octavialao about it for a while, but she ignored me last time :( haha. Maybe she just didnt see my message :P

So so... i've been broadcasting quite a lot ever since i paid that 5 bucks of premium subscription on mixlr. Turns out that if I'd joined a month earlier i could have gotten a year's free trial of pro membership! Darn, darn, just darn it! So yeah... I figure. If i paid my 5 USD (it was USD i think? :X ), I'd better make good use of it and broadcast more? Well I'm kinda addicted to broadcasting now... its so fun talking to people on random topics. And I'm proud to say that i've definitely improved. I'm not so nervous anymore and i actually TALK about random things instead of just introducing the songs and nothing else. Still, loads of room for improvement as always.... :)

And ne ne... i got rejected from the new subbing group cos i clicked join, then happily went about my business at mixlr and then when my mixlr broadcast ended i got rejected cos i didn’t make an intro post :( pfffft! Well i hope they'll accept me this time haha. Actually it was because i saw their comm and request for translators that I decided to ask octavia if she needed translators again. Cos if she doesn’t, I'd just join the new comm haha. Since I do feel a little to free these days :P.
Edit: request approve, yay! I really need to make a list of all the subbing comms... so that next time if anyone ask I can just direct them to my list haha XD

Been wondering if i'll still have time to do my reviews... or is there still... idk... value in doing the reviews since there'll be subs and all but... hmm... idk. Doing a transcript and a review at the same time? Maybe i'll try that...? We'll see... but reviews are fun in the sense that i get to talk about all sorts of crap in the reviews... like laugh at Sho failing epicly in VSA for eg. Or maybe its time for me to review Nino-san or Aiba manabu... shows that don't really have subs yet. Yes... maybe i'll do that... since i watch those anyway... and they're shorter too haha.

Watch last week's episode of yowakutemo and I'm just loving it so much! bratty Nino ahhhhhhh! Love it love it love it!

Hmm... I wonder if i should do a mixlr broadcast tmr. Having too much fun with it already hahaha!
coolohoh: Biohazard (Default)
oh gosh. I'm totally hooked on super fresh now. it starts auto playing in my head the moment i wake up! now just how cool is that?

So i did something very erm... evil? yesterday. I decided to listen to some songs, and thought, ok, might as well put it on mixlr. so i did. and then i hit the broadcast button. and then i set up a huge playlist of songs and went about doing my things - bathed, watched nino-san and aiba manabu... and all was well because there wasn’t even a single guest listening in. Then as I was about to end - i originally wanted to end at 11+pm. I saw arashi_ohno appeared! and then zahirah appeared! and somehow just more and more users flooded in! I was like... OMG ok, imma gonna have to broadcast till 12 midnight. And it did! It was so fun chatting with everyone! And i didn’t feel that nervous talking into the mic anymore (and the mic didn’t crackle today), though i still kept forgetting what i originally intended to say.

anyway --> that's the link to yesterday's broadcast if you want to erm... listen in. thank you everyone who listened in! i promise i'll give some advanced warning before i broadcast next time... or at least you know... post on fb and let the world know that I'm broadcasting... hahaha. But i really didn’t expect people to actually come! i just thought it'll be nice to make some more content on my show reel haha. And thank you to all my followers! I have over 20 followers now! yay! *throws confetti*

Haha talking about this makes me feel much better than i was just now. woke up super early at like 6:30am, with a badass stomachache, and then realised i forgot to charge my phone last night and the battery was now 45%. Well at least now i know that turning on those sleep apps thru the night only drains like... half my phone's battery... and it wont actually go flat... oh well maybe it will if i abuse my phone longer haha.

Super excited about OS X Yosemite and iOS 8 changes... but I'm running short on time now so... more on those later/next time!

So, no as many people listened in yesterday... but that's to be expected since I didn't have anyone to erm... 'steal' listeners from ><

I'm glad there was still a turn out though! Initially it was just two people hahaha.

Some I had a problem with the mic yesterday. It was constantly crackling when recording... very distracting... maybe I needa buy a proper mic instead of using the apple earphones... :X

And also discovered a problem as I was on air. M4a, or apple lossless files, can't be played. And since I have very random songs in m4a format, that's gonna be a huge problem. I'll need to organise my music files so that its easier for me to find my songs too... arghs a big headache :X oh wells... that's something i'll have to look into...

Just read news about Apple's WWDC. I'm very excited about iOS 8 and Yosemite. Oh the integration between both systems... finally its getting together... oh and iOS getting system wide third party keyboard support... FINALLY! been waiting for it for ages! Now we're finally getting what andriod had from the get go. I can't wait. When will fall be coming? :P

What else? Third party TouchID support, icloud drive... continuity... heath and heath kit... apple getting into the home automation game.. I'm still most looking forward to the predictive keyboard as well as third party keyboards. And then the link between iphone and mac - being able to message and take calls from the computer, and continuing off the documents and mails... though i won't use those as much as the keyboard i guess.

hmm almost lunchtime. been slacking off all morning. planned to start experiments only after lunch today haha. only 2 qpcr plates for today. easing off the pace a little haha. well tmr... not sure if i'll do two or three plates... we'll see.

alright... I'm feeling so distracted right now haha... till next time then!

I just had my first mixlr broadcast today! A test broadcast, before the 'actual' one tomorrow. I have uploaded the recording of the broadcast to my showreel, and you can listen to my broadcast here! Also do follow me on mixlr, I'll like that very much thank you! I actually only decided to start doing broadcasts this morning, and only paid five bucks for premium membership this morning as well. Haha I was kind of sneaky actually! I asked everyone who could and wanted to stay to come over and listen in to my test broadcast after Mio matsumoto's show :P Sneaky me! 'Stealing' her audience like this hahaha.

But I'm glad that I did a test broadcast! Because it let me uncover some technical problems and other errors on my part. Like for example, the first time I spoke, I forgot to lower the background sound volume and as a result my voice became very soft. And then I was hearing echos -->  only later did I realise it was because I was hearing the sound monitoring from the mixlr app, as well as the sound streaming from the webpage! The mixlr app needs to have the live chat built in to it ne...? And of course... it crashed a grand total of three time! Maybe because my computer ram is only 4gb, so every time I tried to use the search function in the add song window the app crashed. It took me a few crashes to figure out that out ><. But once I stopped search and instead navigate to my songs file by file, the broadcast went fine. Well except for the fact that I had to search through iTunes to locate which file my song is in... because I have been using iTunes all along (iPhone and mac user here), so I have always left to organisation of my songs to iTunes... and you know, iTunes organizes it by Artist, followed by album... and I did not sort out all my album names properly so I have like... three 'iza now' folders - 'Iza now', 'Iza now Tour' and 'Iza, now'. Yes, even the comma makes a difference... and some although i've changed ohno's solo song artist from Ohno Satoshi to Arashi, the song still remains in the Ohno Satoshi folder!!!!! Pffftttttttt! Gah, iTunes organization fail ne? That was why i tried to use the search... while I could search alright and add the song alright during my test broadcast (as in, non-live), but the app just crashed and died when I was airing live. Pffffftt! But at least that's avoidable, I'll just have to put in more effort by searching for the song in iTunes and usign the get info panel (cmd+I) to see where the file is stored. I'm really glad that at least I managed 1 hr and 45 minutes without crashing haha. Hope things will go smoothly tomorrow!

And me speaking... I heard a little of my voice while reviewing my show reel earlier... and my voice sounds so low! And of course, I was so nervous! Towards the end I wasn't as nervous, but still I keep forgetting all that I wanted to say... hmm guess I'll have to work on that. It’s a great thing too. I've not had much chance to do presentations ever since I finished secondary school. I'm very shy, and very bad at public speaking by nature, and though all that training in secondary school shaped me up, my presentation skills have all gone down the drain after that since I barely have a chance to present. Of course speaking to my computer, and to a bunch of Arashi fans over the Internet is nothing like say... presenting in front of a huge live audience... but some practice is always better than nothing right? I'd like to be able to speak more naturally and no be so nervous too. Yeah... apart from the fact that its so fun live chatting with all these other Arashi fans, that was one of the great reasons that convinced me to go ahead and pay the 5 bucks. Its not like I have anything better to do after work besides study for next month's jlpt, watch arashi shows, and play iphone games anyway. And recently all I've been doing after dinner is lie on my bed playing my phone. Not very erm... productive ne? Might as well try doing some broadcasts ne? Kekeke.

Hmm speaking of self improvement... one thing that certainly comes to mind is me and my blog entries. Right now I've all but given up on all my other blogs in bloggger. LJ is the only place I post to now... and I'd started blogging, and forcing myself to try and post regularly, because I want to improve my writing skills. Same with me writing fanfics... Not so much for reviews though, but through reviews I definitely improved my Japanese. But yes fanfics! Thank you so much to all my new found fans. There were so many people in the live chats who were interested in reading my fics, or who read my fics and loved it... thank you so much! I honestly never knew I was erm... that well know as a writer in LJ. My stories and far and few between after all, and had always only been one shots. Hmm I guess Computers 101 Yama 101 really helped. A lot of people loved it and I was very pleased it won first place in the fic (speaking of which, I have yet to choose the photo to print on the cushion). Of course once the voting started I was really hoping that I would win, and I was so delighted to see so many votes for my fic... but really before posting I did not expect to win! I was thinking, maybe if there were not a lot of entries I might get lucky and squeeze in a third or something... but to win was really unexpected. And from the comments it turned out to be more 'crackish' than I intended it to be. Gosh maybe I'm not that bad at writing crack after all? Idk.

Well and now. I've finally posted my first multichap! I'm worried about that... but at least I've got 10 properly edited and ready for posting chapters. What I'm more worried about is the donation fic request. That's waaaaaaaaaaay overdue, but unfortunately when I tried to work on it I have no idea how to continue at all! Gomen! I think... form now on... I won't write donation fics anymore... at least contests if I can't make the dateline, I'll drop out and it'll only affect me... whereas donation fics someone donated and is waiting for the fic... >< ahhhhhh gomen! But I have no idea how to continue that fic... ahhhh what to do? ><

Oh wells. Its already past midnight now... time flies! Ok, I really need to get some sleep now! I needa wake up by 7am tmr, got physiotherapy appointment in the morning, and then gotta head off to work, and I'll have to do DNA extraction tmr... a good whole afternoon till evening's work in the lab. And then I'm broadcasting at night! Yes. I need my sleep... good night minna!
