The new addiction

I am by no means giving up Arashi as my main source of sanity, I only added another one. It’s not like I’m the only one, I mean, a lot of people are doing facebook these days, i found most of my high school classmates in it. But I guess it’s only strange for me because I do facebook because of the games. 😀
Hey, petville, and restaurant city, and cafe world, and all those other nice games are very entertaining… anyway if you play them too leave your name, I’ll find you :DDDDD

I need a new job…

The moment it struck 12 on new year’s eve I thought, I need a new job, which is weird because my dad had been badgering me to get a new job for about two years. I guess the reality has finally caught up with me. There is no progress in my current job and I need more.

So I thought, hey, since we’re going wild let’s look for a job abroad! Away from everything we’ve been living with! And luckily there was this banner near my workplace about some Language Center looking for Factory Workers in Korea. Hmmm… Korea, I luv Korea! It’s not Japan but I can live in Korea. ‘Course I thought it was strange that a Language Center would be recruiting workers but what the hey!

The day before the Orientation for the Korea job, I decided to look into the POEA website and check the Language Center for its license… it had none. It was only licensed by TESDA to teach Korean but no recruiting. There also isn’t any Factory Worker jobs listed in the POEA database. Crap! There goes my plan. Edit: also apparently, you need to be able to SPEAK korean in order to get a job in Korea, hence the language school’s chutzpah to hold an orientation for future korean workers.

I guess I need to try that Call Center job my aunts and well, practically everyone, has been telling me to apply to. The only problem is that I can’t speak English. I can write well, but speaking is something else.


Anyways… Akimashite Omedetou Gozaimasu mina!

Uh… hi…

I’m a horrible blogger… My last post was a 2008 recap of Arashi’s activities and then I disappeared completely off the face of wordpress.. haiz

Sorry, I was having a personal crisis, battling with my own insanity. I’m not completely back yet. Maybe next year, I still need to fix the parts of me that I can still salvage.

Anyway, I just wanted to put another post here so that I’d at least have ONE post for 2009 before it ends…

Arashi in 2008: a Recap

Gomenasai, these are the only ones I remember… I started fangirling on March and I don’t exactly hang out in the Arashi fandom that much especially since I’m still catching up with all the years of Arashi-goodness that I’ve missed (10 years since their debut!!), hope you forgive if I miss something or dated something wrong…


Ohno Satoshi had his “Freestyle” art exhibition on February 21-29, 2008 at Omotesando Hills, exhibiting his 100 clay art figures and several other artworks he had accumulated in the span of 10 years. (I planned to post a link to someone who uploaded the scans but I forgot who it was and I couldn’t find it anymore. I’d probably upload my copies sometime but…)


Ohno Satoshi’s butai Amatsukaze took place in Aoyama Theater in Tokyo from March, 21st to April, 7th and in NHK Osaka Hall in Osaka from April 24 to 28.


Himitsu no Arashi-chan premiered on April 14, 2008 in TBS

Dream-A-Live Concert in Tokyo Dome on June 15, 2008

June 28, 2008 was the premiere of the movie “Hana Yori Dango” Final starring Matsumoto Jun and Inoue Mao


Maou premiered on July 08, 2008 with Ohno Satoshi as Naruse __ in his first ever lead role in a dorama along with Ikuta Toma. Ohno plays a brilliant “Angel Lawyer” who wants total revenge to the person who killed his brother.

The Ohno & Kimika pictures were published in Friday.

Fandom was shaken when pictures of Ohno Satoshi surfaced and was published in a magazine called Shuukan Gendai on July 28, 2008 where it was statedthat Ohno had allegedly not only done a threesome and took pictures of the prelude but also smoked marijuana. No other proof was given to the alleged marijuana smoking and threesome aside from the pictures (which did does not show him actually smoking marijuana). Story may also be found in Uwasa-ko’s lj site.


Matsumoto Jun stars as a “young man who learns he has a rare illness known as CIDP, which affects the nervous system. He begins to lose the functioning of his limbs, but he is determined to fight the illness with the support of his wife and his 2-year-old daughter, Myu-chan” in a drama special “Myu no Anyo, Papa ni Ageru” which wasbroadcasted as part of NTV’s charity programme “24 Hour Television.

Note to Japan producers: GIVE AIBA A DORAMA!!

Uta no Oniisan CM

Again… so late for this news

Uta no Oniisan CM Preview is out: Dozo!!

uploaded by JaEmArThA of YouTube

*DoS mode switch ON!* This dorama is going to be great! Ohno bullied by a lot of children… Can you sense the fun already?

Oh, on a side note… wanna know how many 5 year old kids you can beat up until you pass out? Try this survey on oneplusyou.com: How many five year olds could you take in a fight?

The scenario is this:

  • You are in an enclosed area roughly the size of a basketball court
  • There are no weapons or foreign objects
  • Everyone is wearing a cup (so no kicks to the groin)
  • The children are merciless and will show no fear
  • If a child is knocked unconscious, he is “out.” The same goes for you.

-quoted directly from site, btw…

I got… 16 for me…
I’m a jelly doughnut, I know…

Oh… if you take the test and when you click “Ok, I’m finished, what’s my score?” and it takes you to a dating page, just click the “Take me to my score” link at the bottom.

So… if all those kids in Ohno’s CM were running towards him with the hopes of murdering him? Do you think he’ll be able to beat them up? How many would be Ohno’s score?

Post your own  scores in the test, if you can 🙂

Riida’s New Dorama!!

How late am I with this news, seriously?

Ohno lands his 2nd lead role in TV Asahi’s comedy series “Uta no Oniisan”… yes, after the seriousness of his role in Maou, Ohno’s doing a comedy!

After starring in the TBS drama series “Maou” last season, Arashi’s Satoshi Ohno is back with his second starring TV role. This time, he will lead the TV Asahi comedy series “Uta no Oniisan,” which will air on Friday nights at 11:15pm this winter. This is said to be his first comedy role, including his performances in film and theater.

The story revolves around an unconventional children’s show called “Minna de Utao!” Ohno plays Kenta, a young musician whose band breaks up and who gets dumped by his girlfriend. To top it off, his own family labels him as useless. Unexpectedly, he becomes an “uta no oniisan,” a singing character on the children’s show.

The show begins filming on the 18th of this month and premieres on January 16.

According to the Press Release for Uta no Oniisan, it is:

The story is a comedy of a man who, by some strange chance, becomes an uta no onii-san on a children’s program, his struggles and growth.

Along with his acting power, Ohno’s personality supported his being chosen for the role. His characteristic pokerface with little emotion. It’s a joke amongst the member’s of Arashi to call him “old man” and he is known for his gentle personality. Being the high tension image singing guy from start to finish is quite far cry from the guy who, after all, has said, “I don’t like kids that much.”

Producer Kawanishi said, “From the start, it’s a story who’s protagonist is a helpless singing guy struggling. It’s shocking to see the character feeling forced and made to do something.”

Ah! Ohno’s finally getting his own dorama’s and this one will probably be a bit easier for him to play than Maou’s Naruse, especially since it’s mainly a comedy though I get a feeling it’ll probably a tearjerker too.

Hmmm, wonder if those producers would ever think of giving Aiba a dorama too… he’s getting kind of left out, isn’t he?

Minna! Please support Ohno-san’s new dorama!!

January 16 @ 11:15PM, remember that date!!


Um, anou… I just saw the screen caps for the promotion for this dorama (check out lj’s gholl88’s post) and… i just have to say one thing: Ohno looks effing creepy to me!!

For some reason he looks like a clown… it’s creepy! I hate clowns!

Eh~?! How am I going to watch this now? He’ll give me nightmares!
