Nick, over at Anomalous Material, did his list of 13 Iconic Movie Images (for him). I thought I would share mine here since things have been a little on the weak side lately.

I dunno exactly why 13, but… it suits me fine. It gave me room to include things I wouldn’t have included in the first place. I’m surprised I cut so many from my Top10 Fave Films, but I did manage to squeeze half of them in. LOL I also set myself two rules… no black and whites, or animated films. ;O

So here we go~~~

Moarrrr Yu Aoi Short takes

September 2, 2011 — 1 Comment

Seriously, it’s like Yu conspires to release info day by day for a whole week, and then she decides to close the news running for a whole year.

Starting September 5, Calbee Potato Chips [1] will be running new Yu Aoi CMs with non-scripted Yu!

The CM shows off her natural charms, as she laughs loudly, takes pictures, and strikes up fun conversations — all of which makes one feel as if they were on a vacation with her as well.

Furthermore, the producers did not provide a script for the actress, so she just went with the flow to deliver as much of her natural behavior as possible. Apparently, her acting was so good in this CM that the filming went smoother than expected.

In other news, I just found out what High School Yu-chan attended with Koike Teppei [1]. LOL, you know… I never thought of finding out, I just ran into the information while looking for something. It listed Teppei as a student there, and I thought… wait a minute! Didn’t Yu… and yes – yes, she was.

Horikoshi High School is a pretty unusual high school in Tokyo, in that… it’s common for idols to attend this school for its flexible schedules for hard-working idols. And it seems to be pretty expensive too~ Other notable students of this school are Ayumi Hamasaki, Aya Ueto, Matsumoto Jun, Kyoko Fukada, Masami Nagasawa, Asami Mizukawa, Anne Suzuki, and Ikuta Toma.

Yup, that’s it.

Stuff for the next Wiki update? xD

Did you ever noticed that “as seen in” feature some YouTube video uploads have?

I always wondered how to get a YAM Magazine one [which eventually did happen], so I’m wondering how this works. I suppose that YouTube picks up a pingback because it’s Google… and everything is interconnected now.

Anyway, you can subscribe to this blog’s YouTube thingy thing!

Are you feeling the new theme?

It has been a long time since I last did anything important to my blog… maybe a little over two years. I really didn’t know what to do while the WordPress coding has changed over the years. It seemed I needed a new theme with new capabilities… though I do think WordPress has begun acting a little too much like Tumblr~~~

There had been some very beautiful new WP themes (some you need to pay for), when I saw Matala I immediately thought “this is the one.” But I needed to change the graphics, as much as the original theme looked nice… I didn’t want to look like all the other blogs that might be using this theme.

So I was playing around Photoshop… without knowing exactly what I wanted, and ended up with this Dogville, Dancer in the Dark, and Memories of Matsuko mash-up — I call it “Suffering Heroines of Cinema” o “Heroinas Sufridas del Cine” in Spanish~ I almost added Amelie in it instead of Matsuko, but felt she was too off against these two Von Trier characters. LOL

I’m not completely feeling this theme, though. How about you?

I am pretty (99,9%) sure that this used to be called Haru Natsu Aki Fuyu Kakigoori (春夏秋冬かき氷), which I translated as Kakigoori for All Seasons or Shaved-Ice for All Seasons. But now it’s called Kyou mo Kakigoori (今日もかき氷). I don’t know when that happened. But look!

We know how much Yu lovessssssssssss shaved ice, she’s like… super passionate about it. Some people love animals from shelters, melt for abandoned puppies and other assorted pets — Yu-chan loves herself some Kakigoori. She loves Taiwan for it, and my Mandarin teacher who’s from Taiwan tells me shaved-ice in Taiwan is off the hook out of this world.

I have no illuminating knowledge about shaved ice, because apparently Peruvian raspadilla has NOTHING on Taiwanese shaved ice. But there you go! Now you know how to say shaved ice in Peruvian Spanish~ I’ll put it in katakana: ラスパディーヤ // RASUPADI~YA. LOL The root of the word comes from “raspar” which means “shave” – and while in English, there’s also what we call “snow cones,” raspadillas aren’t really served in a cone.

Another common name for shaved ice in Spanish is granizado, in katakana: グラニザード // GURANIZA~DO, which comes from the word “granizo” as in “hail” ~~~ and also the term nieve raspada (shaved snow) or in katakana: ニエーベ ラスパーダ // NIE~BE RASUPA~DA, which in itself is a wonk term because you can’t shave snow… can you?

Are you bored by now with my Kakigoori knowledge? Well, in any case Yu is willing to travel the world for the perfect Kakigoori… I guess she’s going to need to know how to call it in different names. But if my teacher is telling me the truth, then Taiwan is all Yu needs.

Here are some more photos!
