I was looking for a decent quality image of Alexander Walker’s Joan Crawford: The Ultimate Star book cover, but I couldn’t find any :/ so I decided to scan my own. Take it as a service to the online community. I was going to watermark it, but decided not to. A link back or a shout out would be nice, tho :)
Archives For scans
My gosh! Look what I found on Weibo~
At the time, Yu was only 1.50m xD
By the way, she’s turning 26 in two days. Yu is now closer to her 30s than her 20s. O_O
Read the latest interview from Rolling Stone magazine?
Those are the scans… 5 pages, but if you’re too lazy to read~~~ This is what Lainey had to say~~~
Anyway, a lot of people thought the journalist was offside. Inappropriate questions, tried to make the actors uncomfortable, ended up getting meangirled at the end of the day as a result.
I loved it.
Because his behaviour shaped the story. And his behaviour made it so much less safe and boring. His behaviour brought out a much more authentic side of the stars, ALL OF THEM. Lea Michele is a narcissistic humourless bitch, Cory Monteith is a con artist and a skilled dodger (which totally makes up for his bad pants) with a shady past, and Dianna Agron is a tight ass prude. It’s AMAZING. And so is Jane Lynch. Who has no patience for silly high school games and will cut a motherf-cker for wasting her time. As for the heartbreaking Chris Colfer, well, he may have the attitude, but he has to follow a locker room code too.
As for me? I was a little amused by Monteith’s story… kinda worrying all his past. Agron seemed normal… a little pompous (the story about the guy who can’t say “I love you”?), Lea… seemed annoying and pretentious. If you’re calling someone a whore, make it funny.
And well, Chris Colfer was endearing, but he did need to stop talking about the grudge. The interviewer WAS annoying though, but I guess most interviewers should have their annoying shades to actually ask people about their private lives.
I mean… reall~~~ “Entertain us????” *rolls eyes*
Sue Sylvester meangirls the best. =D
I wasn’t gonna post these — like I said, not a calendar person — , but ran into some okay scans,
so now I’m looking for all of them. If you have them, resolution of 560px wide or more
leave a link on the comments!
I can totally see Dutch Milk Maid… or Hansel & Gretel. Ja?
I finally found big scans of that So-En photoshoot Yu did for this month’s issue.
Did Yu really cut her hair? Because her hair is really tucked away otherwise~~~ I love Yu wearing glasses, and I love Yu with that hat. Love her hair on the cover, and that puffy hair is hilarious. xD
I had to make a wallpaper of that photo with the hat. xD
In case you haven’t gotten the hi-res,
check it out over at Yurikofans.cn from Hudie.com
Now, if only there were non-watermarked scans…
Since I liked working on the BOUND magazine post, I decided to do one on the Revista Integracion issue, which I saw this past weekend. I’ve always been a little pissed at this magazine ever since that cover with Zhang Ziyi with the info “cover: Gong Li” or was is it the other way around? Can’t even remember now, it was so long ago. The thing was it felt like “all Chinese are the same, even for the Chinese working on this magazine.” LOL Plus, who the FUCK confuses Zhang Ziyi with Gong Li????
Integración is the local magazine, formerly known as Revista Oriental, done by the Peruvian/Chinese association… obviously to integrate the Asian community.
Only, there couldn’t be more ass-licking in a magazine like there is on this one. Trust me, the magazine is 98% photos of them and their events, than actual articles talking about Asian issues in economics, cultural or even entertainment. I’m sure as hell I haven’t ever read a review of The Curse of the Golden Flower when it opened in the city. I’m sure as hell that they didn’t mentioned that the Lima Film Festival was showing Wong Kar-Wai films in some of their events.
The bigger your stake in the magazine, the bigger the ass-lick you’ll get. Meaning, the bigger your photo will be. Trust me.
And maybe one or two pages on Korean and Japanese? Integration, my yellow ass.
Well, now that I’ve rant about content quality of the magazine, let’s talk design, shall we?
This is a pretty old photoshoot, February 2007 in fact~
but I care about photographers, and I wanted to know
who shot it, for who and when xD so I took my time to post.
Shot by Keiichi Nitta, who has photographed Lady Gaga x Koda Kumi, Kylee, Aoi Miyazaki, Justice, Chiaki Kuriyama, M.I.A., Beck, Madonna, Beyonce, The Chemical Brothers, Fergie and even La LiLo xD
His photographs, more often than not exude sexiness, sex oftentimes with a mix of innocence, playfulness and edgy. So it is no wonder that this is perhaps Yu’s more “Fierce” photoshoot to date. LOL To quote on Tyra xD In here, she plays a little with the Lolita-esque style looking oh-so-innocent… NOT. One of the photos, one of the very first photos I saw online, has that just-got-out-of-bed quality to it. Only I saw it in black and white and cropped on the face, which makes it look so good.
I think Kawaii Joyuu will explain it better,
Do you know the latest buzzword “Mori Girl”? It’s a term that got created in the mixi community, a huge social networking system and one of the most visited Japanese sites in the Internet. The general definition would be a “a girl who seems to be/live in a forest”, describing a girl who would fit more into a forest rather than into a city.
“She has to like fashion that’s natural, but also a bit quirky” or “She wears a lot of dresses that have a loose or comfortable feeling to them”, to name a few of the opinions. The difficulty is that the girl should like “natural clothes”
They did a ranking, in which Yu had nearly 50% of all the votes, pulling a head (for the first time?) of Aoi Miyazaki and Juri Ueno. Also on the list, Mikako Ichikawa – who I think looks amazing with hair pulled up *points to Atsu-hime* And YAY! for the Top 3~~~ xD
Anyway, spoon magazine did a whole issue on it on March. =D
I should use the cover, but this is my favorite shot. xD
This post is dedicated to Julz, who always mentions that Yu-chan looks like a very cute boy. Now, the newest issue of So-En magazine has given me the chance to search online for photos of Yu in drag. Why? Well, as the title on the magazine suggests… “Aoi Yu no BO~IZU SUTAIRU!” or “Yu Aoi’s Boy Style!”
I haven’t found great big scans of this, just a photo of a photo. But the rest of “Boyish Yu” from other shoots make up for it, I think…
Yu just updated her site with a whole magazine batch, which seems the only thing she updates now… which is kinda boring. BUT… they also announce she’ll be on Vogue Japan on December (dunno if on the cover, or just a feature article…) – which leads me to post a great scan of her cover on Vogue Taiwan from last Oct.
There weren’t good scans that I’m aware of, so I was surprised to find these.
