Folks, I'll make this quick:

I'm working 10 hour shifts, and nothing to do.

I've watched the whole series of "My boss, my hero." and "Tokyo Dogs" over two days, and now the DramaSearcher in me is tired.

I need a drama recommondation. badly.

I found My boss, my hero hilarious, absolutely loved it because of Nagase, and I'd love to see something as funny as that or yeah...you get it :)

Anything..Anyone...? ...Please? This is beyond boring.

Lots a love
Michelle <3

Have you ever found yourself enjoying something you had previously scorned as a cliché? What was it?
Well.

I used to love boybands. When I was like 9 years old... The I discovered Queen, Bowie, Neil Young, Beatles etc etc etc, the list continues into the endless...endlessness. And boyband were long since history in my mind.

But.

One day I discovered an idol group from Japan called Arashi. In the west they're considered as a boyband. And I've fallen completely for them. They're such lovely lads <3 I guess kind of what I like about them is that they in some way or another reminds me of The Beatles. Without getting all too deep and philosophic, I think The Beatles had a very positive vibe - They were (and still are in my opinion) the most famous pop group in the world and yet they were not stuck up nor arrogant (mostly :) ) and they knew they were people like everyone else.

I get some of that typical Beatle-vibe from Arashi also, and I guess that's why I like them. They're idols alright, but they seem so down-to-earth compared to a lot of others in the entertainment business. They do so many silly, cool and lovable things and you will notice when they're having fun and when they're not. Real people, I like that.

So.

These guys are my new love, but that doesn't mean I've let the other ones go. I still listen to Beatles, Neil Young, Queen and lots of those other old rockers; I'd never forget them because..to be frank, they've made a good person of me :)  Therefore I find it really amusing that a person like me would even consider listening to and liking Arashi.  But that's as far as it goes though. It's just them. I don't get that same vibe from KAT-TUN og News or HSJ etc. Only Arashi :D But I Love it! And I want to go to one of their concerts so bad! And I don't think I'm mistaken if I dare say Arashi is by far one of the most successful groups from Johnny's Entertainment. I congratulate them on their 10 year anniversary (1999-2009) and hope they'll continue to sing, dance, act and just be lovely dorks for many years to come!

yo.

(sorry for spamming your flists..! xD)

I like them, the lazy days. Even though I've been at work, it's still a lazy day.

I've been trying to learn myself some of the "magic" tricks with LJ, which are, after all, not so magic. It's only that I'm completely noobelicious on the subject..

Anyway, over to more happy stuffz!

May 27th! Release of Arashi's new single "Crazy Moon - Kimi wa Muteki - / Ashita no Kioku" ! After what I just heard the sales have gone "through the roof" on the releaseday, with a good 214.000 something sales..! Go Arashi!

I know most arashians have seen it, but hey, can we ever get enough of these gorgeous guys?

Crazy Moon - Kimi wa Muteki!


*sigh*

Wishes everyone a nice day, morning, evening, night...Depending where on this lovely planet you're residing <3

Do you ever have recurring dreams? If so, are they good dreams or nightmares?


"When I wake up early in the morning,
lift my head, I'm still yawning.
When I'm inthe middle of a dream,
stay in bed, float up stream. (Float up stream)

Please don't wake me, no, don't shake me,
leave me where I am - I'm only sleeping."

(Of course that song snuck in.. <3 )


I can't exactly call it a recurring dream, because the people and location is different in every dream. What's repeated is that I dream of people I have seen a few times in my life, whom I don't know personally, and they are always "portrayed" in my dreams as important or well-known people. I've dreamed of the british guy in his 30s I spoke to in only two minutes many years ago (he sold me tickets to a Queen musical), and of other people I've passed on the street, or seen on the train or the bus, or people stopping by at the shop I work at in the weekends.

All these people who doesn't really mean much to me, and I don't have any real connection with.. somehow my subconcious likes these people. And chose to remember them and portray them as significant and famous people, in my dreams.

It's really strange.

Like last night, I dreamt of a lady who lives in a house 100 meters away from mine. I guess she's in her 50's, maybe early 60's, and she still looks really good despite her age.

In the dream I had last night, this woman was Norway's most famous Opera singer. (Which is strange itself, because Norway isn't the typical place for opera..)
In the dream I was in the National Theatre and she preformed the aria "O Mio Babbino Caro". The atmosphere was sort of ... not present time. I got the feeling it was the 1930's or around that time.
She looked completely stunning, with her dark Marilyn Monroe-like hair and a pearl necklace and diamong earrings and in a white fur coat. She looked like a real diva. The "scene" in the dream that I liked the most was after the opera had finished and she came out and journalists and photographers and fans swarmed around her. I was only somebody poor who had snuck in to see her performance, and I had cried when she sang.

She walked down the red velvet stairs and people were everywhere, and I pushed through to get to see this magnificent woman more closely. And then I pushed some journalists close to her aside, and she stopped. For only a few seconds she looked at me with an expressionless face, and then she gave me a warm, loving smile and a slight nod, before continuing down into the chaos of people.

I felt such joy.

In real life this, I don't know anything about this woman, except from the fact that she lives nearby and with her daughter and granddaughter. I walk to my workplace everyday, since it's only 15 minutes from my home, and sometimes she goes for a walk and our paths cross. And always when we go by eachother I look at her and she smiles this wonderful smile.

Now I kind of quietly wish that she's a retired opera singer, but i guess that's too much to hope for. The first thing I thought about when I woke up today, is that I want to write her a letter sometime. I will write her a letter right before I move, and tell her about this dream.

Who knows what she thinks of me when we walk by one another? For all I know I might be nothing more to her than "one of those young people with music on their ears", as I walk by her with my huge earphones and in my red, worn out coat, slumping with the shoulders and lazy eyes.

She, on the other hand, will from this day on, be none other to me than the great opera singer with the warm smile.


Here is the song she sung. i was first introduced to it a few years ago when my best friend sang this aria in a contest. It's beautiful. And I'm not even particulary interested in opera either. The piece was composed by Puccini for the opera 'Gianni Schicchi'.

O Mio Babbino Caro, here preformed by Maria Callas:




Dedicated to the woman in the house nearby, who is yet to know that she once preformed this and brought tears to my eyes.

Francoise Hardy...

When I was young, at the age of 5 or somewhere around that, I remember my dad played her cd's and I loved them...
Even though I didn't speak French, i loved them, and when I listen to them now, they give me a wonderful feeling...
Like remembering things from my childhood, but without really remembering what I did, but more the feeling I often had as a kid, when i listened to music... It's a wonderful feeling:)

In my opinion she was best in the sixties, but there are many good songs from all the years throughout her career. She's getting older these days, but in my eyes she's still one of the most stylish women on this planet... She and David Bowie would make a kick-assed pair :D





I don't know where the sudden urge to show this to someone came from, but if anyone happen to see it, I really hope you like it :)

She has (she still sings...at the age of 60 or 70 something) a wonderful voice...and she's oh so pretty, I must say :)

Thanks to whoever uploaded the song,

Here's "Mon amie la rose" ("My friend the rose", I think, my French is not all that good..:)




Bon soir :)

Rakki-rakki-rakki man desu! *imitating Nino from his Ninocam video*


Not the whole song i guess, but the "yobarete tobidate jya jya jya jyan de!!"-part just won't leave my head alone.. :D

I first found this song, Lucky Man by Arashi, rather silly.. But now I can't get rid of it. Not that i mind now :)

What's the best April Fool's joke you've seen today?
It not the best I guess, but my bestfriend lives in Japan, and he emailed me telling about his first day at work and bla bla bla and that his day really sucked and that he was tired, and on his way home he stopped in Sakae and he told me Arashi had held a miniconsert and was signing cds.... And he told me he had gotten me one, if I wanted it.
I was like EEEEEEEHHHHHH!? You're joking right?! Seriously...and then...ah geez i felt so stupid...

Man, i went straight into his stupid trap, the bastard... How could I possibly be so stupid... Really, i embarrass myself..
Guess it's much easier to be fooled when it's about something you really care about.. :D

Ah, need to find a way to get back at my evil, yet lovely bestmate...*grumles*
(-_-')*sigh*

Putting legal definitions aside, at what age do you think someone can really be considered an adult?
I think age is irrelevant. I don't one can say now you're 25, that means you're an adult.
It's the thing about mental age, isn't it? Like a 15 year old can behave, talk and seem like a 25 year old and a 30 year old person can behave like a fourteen year old..
For me, I think it's all in the mind, as George Harrison would have said it :)

If you could jump in a time machine and travel back to any point in history, where would you go?
Hmm, that's a hard choice.. Even so, I think I would want to travel back in time to experience the three days of Woodstock in 1969. That would have been awesome.

When you're stuck in a boring class or meeting, what's your favorite way to keep yourself entertained (or at least from falling asleep)?
Make up bizarre or funny scenarios, making the meeting end in a chaotic matter, most preferably resulting in me getting kidnapped by a handsome, mysterious and sexy japanese man ( see: Gackt, Oguri Shun, Matsumoto Jun, Ninomiya Kazunari, Matsuda Shota *swoon*)

I've figured out I find LJ really..uhm.. hard to understand... So if anyone's got a LiveJournal for Dummies, I really need to borrow it.. :)

Well, I'll probably get into it after a while, but right now there's so many things I don't get... For example, at the moment I'm haha uhm, trying to find a good Arashi community where I can share fanfics...But ah, mendo kusai.. Too difficult for a lazy, though still overworked girl.. :)

Help is very much appreciated though.. :)
