Hey lj! I've been wanting for a while to get back in the swing of posting something and I think the mail truck is going to beat out other potential posts... my Popcorn CD arrived! :D This may be a little late but my Popcorn boom was delayed a bit by a) waiting for my copy of the CD to listen and b) Hurricane Sandy, which struck almost exactly when my CD shipped, causing it to be redirected to Alaska while I woefully waited without power for four days. XD BUT I think that experience made it enjoy my first listen all the more soooo I'm going to count this one as a waiting success! :D

I have unleashed my excitement in two ways: thoughts about the album that got way too long and wallpapers that have way too many versions! Please feel free to skip either if you are interested in one. :)

Thoughts on the album... )

15 wallpapers + alternates )

And a quick life update, I'm going to visit my dear Val in Indiana tomorrow!! It's all very exciting, my visit to her kept getting pushed off and pushed off so I'm very gleeful the day is finally here. ♥ I expect my life to get a 1000% increase in Arashi and drama irl fangirling soon~

More wallpapers! On my last Gantz wallpaper post I said that if people wanted to see some other H 2011.03 images as wallpapers, I'd give it a shot. I got some takers so you get some more wallpapers!

I have been on such a Nino/Gantz/Gantz-related PR kick recently. Nino on the airwaves 24/7? Nino on a movie screen? OMG SIGN ME UP, MORE NINO YES, BRING IT! So yeah, I personally needed a desktop switch for the season of Nino and I thought I'd share. :) Happy Gantz Release Day, everyone!

I feel like my journal is currently doing a grave injustice to my interests and it's all because I've been waiting to post this post. What have you been missing? Why just how obsessed I am with Eito's latest project, Prologue of Patch and the upcoming ∞UPPERS. I already posted about the last single but the release of LIFE has only ramped up the excitement. UM, GUYS, THEY ARE SOME SORT OF VIGILANTE GROUP, MATCHING CRIME WITH CRIME. I maaaay have watched the 'trailer' for the movie about a million times already. I was honestly surprised and thrilled by how dark and gritty this project is... and by just now much money they spent on them. THIS LEGIT LOOKS AWESOME. The camera work! The typography! Allllll of the music associated so far. Just, I am making starryeyes all the time now when I think of this project. I'm totally getting the fanciest boxset, though I'm not quite crazy enough to get all three. Even though I want to. :D

As a small expression of my feelings, I decided to make character wallpapers. All caps come from somewhere in the footage we've been given and did my best to make an associated symbol central to the design for everyone, though I didn't always wind up going with the most common one. Some of these I like better than others and I wish they'd give us a few more pixels on the DVDs but overall I'm happy! This project was so much fun. :D


Rule #1 of 8: No betraying friends! )

Happy 6th National Debut Anniversary, guys! And a happy birthday to the ossan too! :D

More Arashi icons! I've been voraciously following the coverage of the 5x10 concerts. It's almost like I'm there which is good because I really can't be there! I think the occasion calls for a batch of icons. Um, spoilers if you don't want to know about the concerts?

With bonus Arashi meme!

Okay well, I'm actually not so much closeted as I've just had nothing substantial to post! But the last month or so I've been plunged into the world of sparkles and rainbows that is Arashi.

Now, I tried to resist this love at first. Because companies forming a boyband and marketing them to the masses = uber creepy, right? I mean, I'm not new to loving a "boyband" as I'm am a card-carrying twelve year Hanson fan, but I always had the justification of them forming by themselves and y'know, being actually a band with instruments.

AND YET there is nothing about Arashi I don't love now! There was no way I could fight this whirlpool of affection! You see in Japan, celebrity figures are not just lobbed softball interviews and chased by hellish paparazzi. In Japan, you are given your own TV show where you fail miserably in ridiculous and fun games, get peer-pressured into eating a sparrow (Dead! Cooked! It's okay!), and have your worst sartorial missteps (SWEATPANTS PRINTED TO LOOK LIKE JEANS) trotted out in front of a national audience. Basically, this is just a group of five COMPLETE DORKS who have known each other for over ten years and are pretty much family. Annndd I'm completely charmed.

SO FLIST, expect a few posts on Arashi in the future! Though I'm not exactly a prodigious poster so you will not be inundated or anything. And now, naturally ICONS.

Okay, I came across [livejournal.com profile] redbrunja's post about colorbars and inspiration struck. ...But not really in the text department, so if you have any other ideas feel free to leave them in the comments. If you need them resized, I could do that too.

Also, these are going to break my LJ layout but I don't felt like fixing that at the moment. XD
