For my own sake (who cannot navigate archives for the life of me) I've decided to put up a post that lists every fic of mine that is linkable anywhere, especially in my old journal that I've abandoned. Makes it easy for visitors too, IMO. So everything's under the cut!

I like to be organizedCollapse )

[Movie Review] Thor: The Dark World

The latest installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Thor: The Dark World is likely to run parallel to Iron Man 3. Which is to say, it picks up where The Avengers left off but this time we follow Thor. And Loki. Warning: Minor spoilers.

[Album Review] Arashi - Love

The time of year has come around again to review Arashi’s new studio album! This year the theme is ‘LOVE’. While I’m not good at analyzing lyrics, I’m okay with love songs so yeah? Everything’s cool!



A week before the album was due some song leaks can be found floating on the vast ocean of the Internet, apart from the little teaser bits of P.A.R.A.D.O.X. PV. Of course I watched the PV and thought it was very K-Pop-ish, but it’s not a bad song. As for the leaks, I graciously refrained until I can get my hands on the album.

Was it worth the wait? Let’s check it out.

Can you feel the love?Collapse )

[CM] Ohno Stoshi - Naive

Our adorable ojiisan returns with another Naive CM. I remember he used to endorse face wash, but I suppose it's better to go with younger ambassadors for that now, right? Maybe in 10 years he'll be doing anti-aging products, haha.

Keeping with the kids theme of his previous Naive CM, this one has Ohno playing ball with a bunch of kids. Read more...Collapse )

[CM] Arashi - Kirin (Peace)

I have to say I love all of Arashi's Kirin CMs so far. What did we... We had the hide-and-seek, ice slide, the bicycle, and now the 'peace' theme.

The setting is the same as others in the series - a cheerful bright open space, but some new props this time - SHEEP.

Read more...Collapse )

The choice this time is good - Aiba is surely Arashi's designated Nature Boy and Ohno and animals are always aww-inducing. While you can point out that Nino's bit can be done by MatsuJun and Sho... really, those two? Sheep? Um... no.

[Album Review] Arashi - Popcorn

I haven't reviewed an album in years. Considering the last buy was Maroon 5's [It Won't Be Soon Before Long] - a fantastic album by the way - it suddenly feels strange that I'm reviewing one now, isn't it?

But since I bought it, let's dissect it track by track. Before that however, a little background. The members have already said in many magazine interviews that the album's concept is 'Pop'. I don't quite get what they mean by that, other than the songs are fun to listen to? Light, perhaps? What I'm afraid of is if it comes off as insubstantial as its food namesake. Or puffed up, full of air. Or just something to be enjoyed with some other activity, but not on its own.

I don't know. I certainly hope it's [Popcorn] for good, not for worse.

Onto the goodies!

Until the popcorn pops!Collapse )

What Makes Me Happy

If Arashi continues to do this every two months, I'll be broke. Two months ago Popcorn was released for pre-order, and now THIS:

ARAFES!
