Argh, ye landlubbers!! ^o^  
We were trying to look cool, next to this standup of some actor in one of NHK's dramas this season. I don't know who it is, but my friend said that he was in Densha Otoko too, as Hermes's brother. The picture looked much better before I cut my friend out, we make a very good fake-cool team! But she didn't want to be in a picture on my journal for some reason. Why? o.o I guess some people are just more private than me. I don't really mind, as long as it's not a really really embarrassing picture or anything.

Lately it's been cold and rainy every day! Go figure, Tokyo weather is even stranger than Arizona weather. It doesn't change as fast most of the time, but it's so random. What happened to the heat? I would like to be able to wear my tank tops again, please? ^^;;;

Yesterday, we went to see Pirates of the Carribbean 2... finally!!!!! It's FINALLY out here!! (Speaking of delayed movies, *ahem* STILL waiting for X-men 2.........) I get upset that I can't see the big Hollywood movies here the same time as everyone else in the world a lot of the time, but I guess it evens out because I get to see a lot of cool japanese movies that never make it to America, or make it really late.. (like Tenipuri, Death Note and more coming up....) So... well, it's disappointing but alright. In any case, I REALLY liked PotC 2!! I'd heard that a lot of people didn't like it, but come on.. it's a SEQUEL! For a sequel, it was pretty good, and funny and corny. I loved the twist ending and can't wait for the next one!! And the witchdoctor..? COOL!!! Oh yes, much in love with her!!! ^__^

You know, lately I've been feeling like I'm mellowing-out. Or, maybe that's not the right word for it. I'm happy and hyper as always, and happier than ever probably.. but, maybe, I feel.... nicer? Well, I mean, I would say that I'm nice usually, but... mm, I'm not sure how to put it. Like I feel the capacity for romance? Not directed at anyone, but I feel like I would like to be able to be close to someone special and direct a lot of caring feelings toward them. I usually feel too independent, but it's weird.. because on top of this tender feeling, I feel more independent, more sure of myself than ever... Hmmm....

A special note. Yuri-hime magazine is having a manga contest, and the top price is.... 3,000,000 yen. Oh yes.... $30,000 roughly. I looked at the ad a million times, before practically dropping my dinner spoon from my mouth. I do sure feel the urge to enter......!!

I think my only problem with POTC2 was that it was too damn LONG! I've sat through four hour movies and never blinked. I was fine with Gettysburg, all the Godfather movies, Schindler's List, Braveheart...no problem. But this one just felt long. Otherwise it was a great movie.

Just to verify chibi_nasu, that mocomichi (or rather mokomichi I guess) hayami
He stared in dramas such as Gokusen 2, Densha Otoko (as you know), Rondo and the latest one, which is his first leading role, "Regatta"

Haha, didn't XMen 2 come out before PotC 2, too? So are the US movies that come out in Japan, are those like subbed? or are the voices dubbed over? (just wondering ^^;;)

You should definitely enter! Your artwork is just awesome! And 30,000 is a lot of money to win~

Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 24th, 2006 03:11 pm (UTC)
Sometimes the movies come out here at the same time as in America, and other times they come out later here. They're always subbed in japanese, or sometimes dubbed over if they're children's movies. But usually if it's a dub, you can choose to see the english version with japanese subtitles in another theater or on another screen. The first time that I saw an english movie here in the theater (Star Wars 3), it was really annoying because I kept wanting to glance down at the subtitles, even though I didn't need them (and for that movie, the subs weren't very good, lol).

I always do that too when I watch tv, and have the captions on.

I just love to read you news!!! I miss being in Tokyo so much I feel a bit better when someone reports about all the cool happenings there. I'm sorry to hear it's raining now. I was there from 11th until 17th before going to Nagoya and it was really hot all the time. One of those days it hit 38C and it was on the news and everything.. It sounds strange it got so silly after that suddenly.

Do you like Ghibli? The new movie premiers 29th July, and I would pay so much to see it right away.

Definitely enter the manga contest. 3 million yen would not hurt that bad :)
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 25th, 2006 01:58 am (UTC)
I do like Ghibli. ^-^ Not a big fan, I guess I should say, but I'm fond of watching their animation. ^^

Oi. Here in Phoenix it's been hot and humid with some clouds. -_-'''
Trade you our heat for your cold! *nods*

Thanks for no spoilers. I still haven't gotten to see it yet. ^_^;

You're entering that contest, right? =3
wasabixlemonswasabixlemons on July 25th, 2006 02:55 am (UTC)
You have to enter...your art is so good. XD Pirates of The Carribean 2? I've seen the first one but perhaps I'll drag one of my friends along to see the second one....if they haven't seen it yet...;;
Katstar_in_my_soup on July 25th, 2006 06:56 am (UTC)
Cold and rainy? Well, back here in unpredictable AZ, we're having the usual hot monsoon thunderstorms! XD Hopefully, we'll both be getting some nicer weather soon, yes?

Yay for PotC 2! I went to see a midnight showing of it, the very first day it came out, and I personally loved it. I thought it was so much fun to watch, not a dull moment. And the witch doctor lady was very cool. I loved those scenes... That set was really interesting to look at, too. And the twist ending~! ♥ I really need to see it again.

Well, if you have the time and the energy, I would say about the contest... GO FOR IT!!! You never know what will happen, but I think you've got what it takes to win, in my personal opinion. :)
