I think we all know the procedure by now, right? :|
Behind the cut, you'll find the RE CD, scans of the RE booklet, and the Making of/Special Interview DVD in .avi. 8D Everything's kind of...big. I don't know why. It just happened that way. ;A;
I didn't include scans of the LE booklet because I believe someone else scanned them already. The RE isn't all that different, but it's got a few cute shots not in the LE. The CD is zipped together with the RE cover if you're like me and would like the artwork to pop up on your MP3 player. :D;;; Anyway, feel free to do with these what you want, just do not claim these rips to be yours, etc, etc.
( you'll get sick of me one day, i'm sure 8| )
please understand that this is not a reflection of you, and do know that at the time of cutting, i did and still do know every single person on my flist. but i'm at a position where i can't and don't want to have an flist with people i never talk to, or never talk to me, or something along the lines of that. anyone i waffled over i kept. no matter what happens, i wish all of you the best, and who knows? maybe somewhere down the line we'll both be in better places to work it all out.
also, if you've been feeling like defriending me for whatever reason, now would be the time. (: i know i'm a relatively difficult person to get along with, or i have things about me that rub many people the wrong way, so no explanations needed, go for it.
thank you for your time. (:
tegomasu no ai
download links for the full concert, encore + documentary.
Just a note: I won't be scanning the booklet at all, because the DVD is actually in the form of a book, so to scan it I'd have to xacto the entire thing apart, and there's no way that I'm doing that. :3 Hopefully, someone will have the guts to, because the images inside are just...so stunning and so beautiful. ♥
Disc 1 is roughly 2GB, while the documentary and the encore + special footage is about 1.5 GB, so you're looking at around 3.5 GB of video. Resolution is 720 x 416 I think? Screencaps and whatnot are under the cut.
Same rules as always: comments aren't necessary but appreciated, kindly let me know if you're going to be subbing it, etc, etc. All I ask is you do not put it up on jpopsuki or claim that this is your handiwork.
NOTE: All MU and MF links are now up! If there's any issues or problems, please let me know! :D
( screencaps for quality, download links! )
what is this fabulous pre-tegomasu dvd excitement? shinee-induced. SHINEE. SHINEE. I HATE SM, OKAY, BUT I CAN'T HELP BUT THROW IN THE TOWEL AND JUST LOVE. SHINEE. (also, this post is only relevant to tegomasu because once the screen cut to an arena-wide shot in the video above, i tilted my head to the side and went, "huh, looks like yoyogi!" and lo and behold, i was right. please imagine the number of times i've watched the first tegomasu dvd to have the arena imprinted on my mind and i've never even been there. >.>)
...so of course i went on jpopsuki and torrented the shit out of the con that japan aired. 8D i know there are some shawols on my flist, and people from the tlist wanted it, too, so i've split and uploaded it. I'M SO EXCITED lol i haven't even watched the jin dvd yet but clearly, i have my priorities in the right place. >.>
however, for those of you uncomfortable with how mind-bendingly amazing taemin is, please wait and download this after july 18th, for bb is turning 18 then AND PEDO-NOONAS AROUND THE WORLD WILL FINALLY THROW OFF THEIR SHACKLES FOR GOOD. >8D
MU: 01 / 02 / 03 / 04 / 05 / 06
IN CLOSING: GUYS, ONEW IS SO FUCKING CUTE. ;_________;
(also, i'm starting to think he's the best singer. jonghyun's technique is mmmm, bangin', but onew's tone is to die for. ♥)
this is just your usual entry saying that i've done a friends cut. they were mostly journals of people who either haven't updated in a year (or years!), people who i honestly have no idea where i met them, or people i don't interact with much, we never really clicked, etc, etc. it's all pretty standard flist cut fare, i guess. at any rate, i wish all of you the best, and do truly hope that happiness finds you wherever you end up! ♥
Who are they? Where do they come from? Why should you care about yet another Korean boyband? What makes them different from the others?
Why should you like them?
Hopefully, in the course of this pimp post, you'll find that answer out for yourself. I can't tell you to love them, I can't order you to learn their names, their nicknames, their ages, but I am definitely up for the challenge to opening the door to them for you. I'm up for giving you guys a friendly nudge in their direction.
( so let's begin! )
That's all I'm putting in this, since if I get into TV shows and acting and stuff this would never, ever end, but if anyone's interested in their documentary series (MTV B2ST and B2ST ALMIGHTY), then let me know and I can dig up dl links for you, maybe in a separate post or through PM or something. This was just to introduce you, after all! :D Hopefully, I did my job okay and BEAST has wormed their way into your good graces! ♥
Entry is unlocked, so feel free to pimp, etc, etc!
Yayyy! I somehow lucked out and got my DVD today, so I've spent the entire night ripping it and uploading it for y'all. But oh god, this concert. Is. Fantastic. I've felt pretty much every single emotion watching this thing and it is really just...such a wonderful show. This DVD has singlehandedly made me not as embarrassed to admit that Pi was the reason why I even knew about JE in the first place. This DVD has also elicited a lot of really embarrassing noises out of me, most of it being of, ";OWHFO HNNNNNNNNGH," nature. And "Iitai Dake"? Needs to be released. Now. Honestly, even if you're not a NEWS fan but just like being entertained, download this. It's so, so friggin' worth it. ♥
Rules and junk: comments = not necessary, though nice. Don't hand out the links willy-nilly, just link them to the post instead! I also will send my minions to see if this ends up on jpopsuki because I would rather not have someone else sharing my rip and getting all the karma points for it (or whatever the hell their system is) which is what happened with the Tegomasu DVD. Feel free to use to take screencaps to use for graphics, yada yada, etc, etc.
EDITED TO ADD: If you want to use the actual video for subs or to splice into individual song cuts, that is fine, just please let me know first. So far everyone's been really nice about it (and as a heads up, someone WILL be subbing the con!) but I'm naturally curious and nosy, so knowing how/where the video is ending up is important to me. Thank you. (:
Resolution is decent; quality is high -- as in, each disc is over 1GB. Under the cut are screencaps for you to judge and download links.
NOTE: All links should be up and running! If you run into any problems, please let me know and I'll fix 'em as soon as I can! :D
( iiiiiiitai dake~! )
Basically, it all boils down to this one idea.
AU only JE fic exchange. Yay or nay?
I was thinking the other day about how most of the fics I've written for these past few cycles of fic exchanges have all been AU fics, or that a lot of them being posted in the exchanges themselves have been AU fics, and they've all been awesome, to boot. I know that there's at least a small percentage of people who rather enjoy writing AU fics than anything else (myself included) and just figured, hey! There's a lot of great ideas out there, ones that everyone think they should just write themselves -- but wouldn't it be awesome to see what another person did with it, how it would turn out, if it would be similar to your vision or completely different? Or maybe you want to see this awesome scifi AU idea you have come to life, but you know you have no ability to write scifi at all! Or maybe you just want to write an AU and have no clue where to start! This is where this exchange would come in.
I was drafting a timetable up earlier today, and it would look something like this:
Sign ups: the end of February/beginning of March
Assignments out: end of March.
Fics due: end of May/beginning of June
Posting starts: second week of June (depending on when the deadline is, plus pinch hits, etc)
Reveals: week after posting ends.
I've checked all the current exchanges (or at least the ones I know about and the ones listed in Katy's exchange masterlist, and this spreadsheet based on the most recent time tables, made by the lovely nanyakanya!) and the only one that would coincide exactly with it would be je_devilorangel. Another one that almost exactly coincides is k8_exchange, but their due date is further down the line.
I also have ideas for what criteria to use to pair people up, etc, etc, but figured that this should suffice first, as if this does happen, that would all be self-explanatory once sign ups start.
So, anyone interested? :D?
As this is a feeler post, this is going to remain public, so feel free to send it out and link it to various places so I can get more of a general idea.
i drove back from canada today and, well. between getting a grand total of 6 hours of sleep in the past three days and having to drive for hours on end on top of that, my mind -- ain't right.
i implore you to listen to this while you read.
( i wasn't going to cut this, but i actually really like some of you so i'll save you the length. )
Yeah. See this badass mofo here? Carrying his own wood and shit, risking getting high via spraypaint fumes. He's a true man. Who might enjoy Cookie Monster cupcakes. (I do. What? Moving on.)
God. I don't even know where to begin. I've been looking forward to this day for the past week and now that it's here, my mind is blank. What do I even say? Are words even sufficient enough describe in apt detail just how much this man -- this six foot Adonis with a side of pun -- makes me look forward to every day? I really doubt it. But here, I'm willing to give it a go.
To me, Junno is like the brush of spring's first breeze, floating calmly by, sending leftover autumn leaves twirling around. He's the sole sunflower in a field of dandelions; the deep breath of satisfaction and contentment when you see the ocean on your first beach trip of the year; your favorite blanket, freshly laundered and smelling of detergent and dryer sheets and warm, not having cooled from the dryer at all; the giggle that escapes your lips when the next song on your iPod is the song you were just thinking about. He's the dive into a fresh pint of ice cream; the bonfire on a frigid night, keeping you warm; the laughter bubbling up when you've heard an inside joke for the first time in ages; the confidence of a new pair of shoes; the feeling of knowing a friend got you something for no reason except the fact that it screamed you. He's the satisfied groan when you roll over, check your clock and realize it's the weekend and you can sleep in; the simple joy in noticing a letter you've always written messily actually looks nice today; how you feel when you get compliments on your hair and all you've done is just brush it -- maybe. He's the amusement every time you glance at your box of ridiculous band-aids; the tinkling of the ice cream truck coming around the corner; the smooth, slick glide of a fresh, new pen.
He's not just an idol, and the depths of my admiration and, above all else, respect for him is just...impossible to try to describe. It's been four years since I fell completely and utterly, head over heels for this guy, this fucking guy, and I haven't looked back. On a new ranking system designed by Katy and me, Junno is perched on his throne in Mt. Olympus, and everyone else is scrambling to get there, but no one's even in Greece (sorry Massu). He's Zeus, y'all. He is motherfucking Zeus.
AS I WAS SAYING, HE IS MOTHERFUCKING ZEUS. (ravyn_ashling omg omg omg best frannnnn forever ilu so much ♥)
Okay I have nothing left to add this post, which makes me feel sad because I don't think it's longer than the one I wrote for Massu, but if I keep going I'm just going to start crying about how wonderful he is and how I hate everyone who recently jumped on the bandwagon and how shallow fandom is for not thinking he was wonderful until he started "getting hot" and putting out dope ass club tracks, okay, forget you guys.
So happy birthday, TJ. I love you. No one will ever compare to you, so I guess I should look forward to being ~forever alone~ for the rest of my life (already am!).
(this post is dedicated to the rest of my Tagu-tachi, because I love you guys too and Junno stans are the fucking best. Thanks for making my life so much happier and punnier. ;___; ♥)
AND AS IF THIS POST WASN'T LONG ENOUGH (and ridiculous) I'm just going to leave this series of quotes from my bb ravyn_ashling from twitter, after the epic unveiling of Zeus!Junno:
I JUST. IDEK YOU GUYS WTAF HOW DOES HE MANAGE TO MAKE ME DO SHIT LIKE THIS ALL THE TIME? I AM LOOKING AT THIS MONSTER RIGHT NOW AND I AM THINKING HOSHIT WOT I WOULD ACTUALLY STILL BANG THAT. I WOULD BANG THAT, FUCK THAT IN THE SHOWER AFTER TAKING IT OUT TO DINNER, AND THEN ONCE AGAIN IN THE MORNING, AND STILL CALL IT FOR A SECOND, THIRD, 8732486328462th DATE. THEN I WOULD GIVE IT, PUT A RING ON IT AND SAY I DO A MILLION TIMES. FUCK. THAT'S HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS BASTARD. I JUST. I CAN'T EVEN. TEARS IN MY EYES. ;;;;; ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
Unf. Junno stans. Unffffff.
AND THE POST CONTINUES, because. Well. Just because.
The Most Beautiful Junno/Ueda fanvid I Have Ever Seen. ;_________; brb crying over how perfect they are ;oawhfeeoiewhof thank you pipsqueaks for pointing this to me omg.
this has been a long time coming, honestly. i'm just -- when i first created this journal, i said that i wouldn't let it get too crazy, and 130+ was...too crazy. most of it were dead/empty journals, anyhow, but others were just...i never commented, or i skimmed, and i think that is much worse than just biting the bullet and going our ways. that being said, i'm sorry. ):
also, this is the time for you to remove me from your lists, also, if you feel the same about me -- i completely understand. (: i won't send my legion of ninjas after you, so you have nothing to fear! ♥ take care!
(i didn't remove anyone i just added in the past month or so, though, so no worries there. a month is hardly enough time to gauge a person, especially when i post pretty infrequently anyway.)
the first 5 people who leave me prompts (A MAXIMUM OF 5. I'M LOOKING AT YOU, KATY) will get them written, probably within the next few days. i'm thinking short. ...i hope. i don't know, i've been known to suddenly write really huge, long monsters based off prompts in the past, so i mean, whatever happens!
fandoms, of course, include the following: KAT-TUN, NEWS, Kanjani8, Arashi, Merlin, Psych, House, Empire Records, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Final Fantasy 8, bandom. (and an, if you do this, i'm totes willing to write our plethora of original characters. so.)
of course, i have a bunch of other shit that i probably SHOULD be writing, but you know what, i am a natural procrastinator. (also, i just forgot what i had written for je_hols at the office and i have no way of retrieving it. fail, self. fail.)
i'll talk about my jin weekend sometime this week, also. promises.
WARNING: LOTS OF VIDEOS AND FIC AHEAD. idk why this is a warning, but...
( a sampling of awesome junno times, fictional and non-fictional! )
WARNING: THIS HAS BECOME THE DEFINITION OF IMAGE HEAVY.
( because you'll want him to iriguchi and deguchi you all night~ ;D )
( download links under hereeeeee. )
tegomass no uta
download links for the full concert, encore + documentary, & pamphlet scans.
videos are in 720 x 400 format ; pamphlet scanned at 300 dpi.
previews are resized.
in general? i thought this concert was fantastic. it might not be as glamorous and glitzy as some of the other concerts we're used to (arashi and kat-tun, i'm looking at you!) but tegomass isn't about the glitz and the glam anyway, and that feeling comes across so well in this concert. it's basically an opportunity for them to really shine and bask in their talents, with a dash of adorable overload on the side. even the mc's -- which, admittedly, were a little awkward because neither are good at that sort of thing -- brought across their respective charms really well! all in all, i loved this. i think you will too!
( DOWNLOAD LINKS AND A SPECIAL NOTE! )
THAT BEING ALL SAID AND DONE, I AM NOW GOING TO TRY AND READ 8 CHAPTERS OF PRIDE AND PREJUDICE BEFORE I PASS OUT. goodnight kiddies. ♥ i'll hopefully have time to update about life within the next few days!
because i'd take cute and giggly over dead fish eyes anyday.
( what's for dinner tonight? i want a pumpkin! )
( BONUS! my favorite news mv's! )
with that -- I HOPE YOU'VE ALL LEARNED SOMETHING. idk what it is, but um, you know. i uploaded 160 pictures to photobucket, i was clearly dedicated to the cause. D:
VOICE 〜命なき者の声〜 OST
Audio Highs / 吉川慶 / GReeeeN
( tracklist // download links )
please comment if you take; thank you! :D [eta:] the second part for mf should be working now! ^^;; thanks for pointing that out to me!
on a less angry note, this ost really is good. i hope i didn't turn anyone away from it with my wild caps of rage. i am slowly becoming capslock!harry. i don't think this is a good thing.
i will update about my very short vacay a little later tonight, after i sit through another hellish class and go get my car checked out because the brakes sounds like there's a dying cat living in them. awesome.
I just HAD to use this picture. :D;;
Again, I ripped this for Lori, and didn't want the links to go to waste so I'm posting them up here. :)
The file is roughly 1.7 GB when joined and resolution is 512 x 384. I tried making it as big as possible without killing my computer, so I hope it works! It's at least big enough to fully appreciate Jun's ridiculous ass-shaking during "Te Agero". I LOL every time I see it. :D;; Also, Ohno singing the word 'sexy' is sexy in itself. And Sho! lasfes Sho works pleather like it ain't no thang. And he plays piano and for some odd reason I find that really gorgeous.
Uploaded onto MU; I may/may not upload them to other servers, just not SendSpace. It never wants to work for me. If MF links are needed, I'll resplit and upload them gradually throughout the day. :)
( TOUCH ME NOWWWWWW )
Please let me know if you're taking it so I can bombard you with "omg Arashi in COLORED AFROS!" comments. :D
EDIT: added MF link!
