[personal profile] dictionarysays

I'm mostly posting this because I really need my journal to be made up of more than just icon posts, ahaha. Annnnd, I have a certain tendency to take my bro's suggestions quite literally.

Long story short? He shouldn't have gotten fed up with me listening/singing to Sotto Kyutto (the acoustic guitar ver.) on heavy rotation for the last two weeks and suggest that I just record the stupid thing already. Because I did and this is what came of it. /HA

NGL. A big part of me wanted to hear how badly I could butcher the Japanese language anyway.

So that' that. And I may have overused the annotation function on YT.  |D;;


But More Importantly.

WHAT IS THIS I READ ABOUT NAKAI APPARENTLY WRITING A MURDER MYSTERY?!

I am seriously and wholeheartedly praying to the gods of everything that is fantabulous that this rumour is REAL. Oh, and JSYK, to make the rumour even Cooler Than It Already Is, apparently Nakai wants Nino yeah, that's right, THAT NINO to play the lead (because there seems to be interest in a drama adaptation). 

I think there could be some legitimacy here. Nakai loves to read, despite how surprising that may seem to some, and he's talked about wanting to direct stuff and having ideas and whatnot AND I JUST REALLY WANT THIS TO BE REAL, KAY? ;A;

That's all I've got. Admittedly, I didn't want this post to only be about my recording and I needed to flail this shit out anyway, so yeah.

/goes back to listening to Sweet Thing on repeat

P.S. If anyone has any recs for TOKIO music, I would totally appreciate it. Besides the usual Sorafune, that is. I have YET to immerse myself into their stuff, really, and I love the doods, but I've just never known where to start in terms of their discography and I think it's really sad that the only song of theirs I have is their acapella cover of lion heart. /brick'd repeatedly


WOAHWOAHWOAH

/shit, this is the one occasion where "sounds better than original" is not that much of a praise. although i didn't even know an accoustic version existed.

BUT SERIOUSLY. I WOULD LIKE TO SMACK YOUR HEAD FOR ALL THE ANNOTATIONS BECAUSE THEY WERE DISTRACTING ME FROM YOUR BEAUTIFUL SINGING. THE FIRST TIME. SO I LISTENED TO IT A COUPLE MORE TIMES.

you have such a pretty voice! do you do something with it? I mean, sing somewhere or something? 'cause you're great. ♥ ♥ ♥


and LOL WHAT IS THIS RUMOUR? kind of sounds too good to be true but damn if I don't want it to be true. but why Nino, of all the people? ahahaha, omg, I WANT.

p.s. the only TOKIO song I know apart from Sorafune is Love You Only, but I love it with all my heart.

/INSERT MASSIVE SPAZZING HERE

BOOKWORM!NAKAI = AWESOME. I didn't know that, and this really makes Nakai > Kimura in my head (I'm a proud bookworm, and I love my kind). AND HE WANTS NINO TO PLAY IT? GOOD GOD I WANT THIS TO BE TRUE SO BAD IDE ;A;/

For TOKIO, I started with their shortest album "sugar". Then I'd go for their compilation album. OH and I also suggest you try out their cover album "TOK10", just to listen to their acapella cover of "Lion Heart". <3333

ahaha oh man i HOPE this is rumor is true. i may have 'shopped nino as hercule poirot once or twice so this fits right in. there needs to be more murder mysteries on the whole, but a nakai-penned one? YES YES YES.

also, you're in luck! (if you didn't already get recs?) i have a whole tokio rec mix for when people inquire about them!

Honestly - YOU'RE AWSOME!!!!!!!!
I mean...I always thought you were awsome, but now you're A.W.S.O.M.E..

O_______O I mean...woooooohaaa - you're going straight into my itunes-list ^^

Honestyl I never was a huge fan of Sotto Kyutto (ok, since watching Ninkyo Helper I could appreciate it a lot more, but still no favourite of mine ^_-), but you made me realize how WONDERFUL this song really can be. *_*

NAKAI WRITING A MURDER MYSTERY??????
HOW COME I DIDN'T HEAR ABOUT THIS????????????
*gonna dieeeeeeeeeee*
T____T I'm a bad fan.... (#_____#)


About TOKIO - my favourite CD of them is "Harvest" - I could listen to this one all day long - Ashita wo mezashite & Image (=both written by Nagase) are two of my all-time-fav-TOKIO-songs ^^ Btw, nearly all songs on that album have been written by TOKIO themselves ♥ (and this only makes me love the album more ♥ )

But I also ♥ do!do!do!, amegasa, Transistor G Girl, Yesterday's, hikari no machi, Seisyun, NaNaNa, Plus, Everlasting, Cry for the Moon, Boku no renaikoto to...( I can't remember the whole title -_- But it's by Leader and I loooooove the PV) and many more songs, but I shouldn't spam too much XD

I can't say about TOKIO's songs coz honestly I don't know. But you know that I adore them, right? esp Nakai guesting in 5LDSK.
BUTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT....let me say something about that Japanese Slayer~ I don't know if you truly have some powers, but I just downloaded the OST last night & when I woke up this morning...I heard the beautiful song from whoelse? *YOU* Your bro was right and I think he had faith in you doing some justice to it. Aside from your beautiful voice, you did well with pronunciation just one part I noted, more on phrasing the syllables--the one just b4 the chorus but the rest was all sweet. You even made it more dramatic with some slurs & I love you for that. Annnd, the annotations, I honestly wouldn't believe it's you singing if it weren't for the video itself. Ahahaha, I was distracted in a funny way...but I still had to focus in listening to the music. The clearing your throat part...LOL...you were so right, kinda lost some air too, right? Oh~ I would like to thank you for posting this. A better sound quality copy should be in the works or even another one to sing with you so there'll be voicing. now who can sing with you?

The Nakai Leader novel...I hope it isn't just a rumor...with a mind like he has...trying his hands on writing is a must!

Ahaha, this became long, but all I really wanna say is you ain't no butcher!

TOKIO! \:D/ Um, I like the songs on the album "sugar" a lot, especially Hikari no Machi. If you want to look through some of their singles, I've subbed PVs over at [livejournal.com profile] o_e_subs. :Db

ummm i listened to tokio's entire disco once, and i came away with a list of songs that i like. XD; so i don't really have like... an album to rec to start with or anything. but some of my favorite songs are: ashita wo mezashite, indicator, yoru wo fukitobase, southend (nagase's acoustic version from scp omg omg omg omg omg), vale-tudo, mr. traveling man, doitsumo koitsumo (lol this)
