Busy. And new single rumors? Yes, please.

I was just reading through some Massu-centric stuff until I hit this gem of a line on massu89 's post, which promptly led me to yamapi85 's post.

Well this is the supposed tracklist for the "rumored" single:

1. 時ノカケラ~夢~ Toki no kakera - yume- [fragments of the past - dreams-]
2. kizuna [bonds]
3. 日々の中で… hibi no naka de [in each day]
4.瞳色-ヒトミイロ-(初回限定版のみ) hitomi iro (Limited Edition) [pupils color]
4. NEWSニッポン 2009ver.(通常版のみ) NEWS Nippon 2009 version (Regular Edition)

The rumored single is going to be released on April 10.

GUYS, AS OFTEN REMINDED, THIS IS JUST A RUMOR.

But seriously man, NEWS Nippon 2009 version? THAT I'M INTERESTED TO HEAR. Though it slightly breaks my heart that Uchi and Kusano won't be there to sing it with them--unless, of course, some miracle happens.

Oh well, I'm still on busy mode. Blame school.

Unconquered.

Some of our freshmen friends were roaming around, selling their brownies, which they baked for their THE subject. Jeanne bought me one, and then our kouhai started handing us slips of paper. Kind of like how a fortune cookie is like, although the slip isn't inside. XD Mine read:

"It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul."

I remembered reading that excerpt from a poem in our English class when I was still a junior. William Ernest Henley's Invictus. I think it's somehow accurate--especially during recent times, now that I'm often left to make choices for myself. Reminds me of college. Until now I'm still wondering how everything would turn out by the end of this school year.

Just only stars, blinking always breathe in us...

I haven't really updated my journal in a long, long time since I made "the move". Anyway, I'm pretty excited for tonight's Shounen Club because Uchi--eh, that should be pretty obvious. I mean, Koyamama and Uchi together! That should be enough reason for a fangirl to flail, right? And if what I heard about Yamapi and Takki guesting together with him is true, I can probably melt into a puddle of goo. I wonder what kind of interaction I'm going to get. And the songs--I hope they'd be memorable enough. D:

Another thing I'm excited for is RESCUE--OMG, with all the plugging and pimping and promotion, I'm wishing with all my gut feeling that it'd be a blockbuster, butt-kicking drama with the two most adorable people (not to mention squish-worthy BFFs) known for their almost never-changing hairstyles, LOL.


Wouldn't you just like to squish them for being so BFF-y? Massu alone makes this drama all worth it, LOL. YES I AM BIASED NOW SHUT UP. (Credits to newsholic for the scan)
 
Now what else, ah, yeah, that's right--TEGOSHI IN GLASSES SUCKS THE LIFE OUT OF ME. I mean, he looks so manly it's so wrong! D: Someone should give him a long wig and a dress and make him parade around set--that's the only way I'm going to look at him the way I did before. And don't get me started on the Maki-Tego twin thing... The man is a lot prettier, heh. (Credits to newlife18 for the photos)
 



 
Speaking of Tegoshi, I was with my family at The Fort on the 30th last year, looking around at sports shops due to my dad's insistence--and saw this:
 


Which then my fangirl mind decided to use to remind me of:



It doesn't even look remotely the same but the reds and blues (and the identical UNICEF logo asdfghjkl) made me fangirl nonetheless and made me do this:


I should be ashamed of myself, really. =____=
  
And the last thing I'm going to fangirl about is... NEWS' new song, share」. This song is just made up of awesome, like total awesome. It was composed entirely by NEWS, both music and lyrics (music mostly attributed to Ryo and Shige, title suggested by Ryo), especially for the Tokyo Dome concerts. Each member wrote the part he sang and just asdfghjkl, the song made me almost cry hearing it the first time. The intro is just so moving, and the lyrics, although some of them are dedicated to the fans, most are about NEWS growing up together, facing hardships, crying and laughing together, and looking at the same star. Apparently, Koyashige were surprised and touched at seeing fanvideos fans have made (after googling the members), thus, inspiring the song.

Kanji and Romaji lyrics for share」.
Kanji and English translation for share」.

Not lj-cutting, sorry, f-list. :P

First fic for the journal. I haven’t written fic in ages so I’m rusty.

There are lights. Lots of lights. Camera flashes, flickering and fading. They almost blind him.  )

Disappointed and overjoyed. At the same time.

Well, I guess I expected too much from this year's Shounen Club Christmas Special. I fell asleep last night waiting for it, only to be informed it was moved at 6:30 pm today when I had suffered an hour and a half watching random crap shows I would never really bother with.

As for real life, I've been dead on LJ for a pretty good reason. I'm in a chorale, competing in various choir competitions. Such as EDSA Central's "Merry Makers" (December 20) where we won Champion after battling it out against much older choirs (which are, by the way, co-ed, leaving us the only all-female group) and Market! Market's "Holiday Hymns" (December 21) where we won 1st place, just under University of Makati.

Now that rant's over, would someone give props to this man for being a genius? Mind you, he sang all the voices you might be hearing right now.
