Archives For yu aoi

Okay, to make up for my badness (I am trying to make time here) I made another simple wallpaper. This time with a photo of Dandelion. Currently made it my wallpaper last night, and since the other became so popular… I decided to share this one too.

Aoi Yu - Dandelion

This is just to make up for the delay, while I find the time to re-watch Gaichu (Harmful Insect), which is the next film I will be adding to the “Yu Aoi Film Discussion” (which right now contain 3 films in watched-order). Since then, I decided to begin doing it on a more chronological order… except for the ones I haven’t watched, or am not so interested in watching, but probably will in the end~ who knows!

Enjoy  the wallpaper which is 1680×1050, but I’ve also got a fullscreen one sized 1280×1024, in case you want one…

HIYAH!

LOL’

Well, in the meantime while I figure out my video ripping…

I’ll leave you with a cute CM with Aoi Miyazaki and Yu Aoi, who… of course! worked together in the… 2000? 2001? Gaichu (Harmful Insect).

I really like both Aoi’s work, and I am actually watching Atsu-Hime on NHK (whenever I catch it on). People seem to want to make them compete? Both are good, but Miyazaki might be a tad more known… I noticed many of her films on DVD do include English and even French subs, while Yu’s are not subtitled at all – is that a cause or a result? Subtitles are EVERYTHING for broad distribution, I think.

Anyway… geez! How cute is this CM? They both know each other for 5, 6 years?

Extra.

So just a few minutes ago, I put on my Hana & Alice DVD, because I felt like watching something silly about nothing at all… meaning it couldn’t be a film, because I would have to pay close attention to it. This is my 2nd time watching the Making Of, and it’s serious but kinda funny. Well, apparently Japanese edition, and Taiwan edition have different Making Of’s – Well, I only could find clips on them on YouTube (JapPart9, JapPart15, TwClip) – the Japanese ones are pretty funny…

I’m trying to rip a clip of my own, but it seems to take forever without SmartRipper. LOL’ Will get back to you with that later on this post… in the meantime – Well, just wait!

6-Month Mark…

October 22, 2008 — 7 Comments

So… I have noticed, I don’t know if you have, but I seem to have a 6-month mark. It’s basically me finding something, obsessing over it for 6 months, and then sort of… there? It’s still there, but not getting mad over it anymore.

At least it’s been like that since Harry Potter… I am almost pretty sure. I pretty much disliked the last two books, for OBVIOUS reasons, some smart people might notice… and friends will pretty much know. So it all sort of crushed something inside of me…

Main thing is, I don’t read as much as I was reading in my 2003-2006 period, but that’s another topic.

Since then, I’ve been jumping fandoms… now, is it because some fandoms are not good? Or is it something about me? Can’t I hold my interest longer than six months??

Okay… I must blog this because I’ve no idea what’s going on. xD

Yu has updated her blog (Oct 2008 Update ) with the strangest message, EVER. Click here for a quick Google translation.

She is apparently in Caracas, Venezuela – for the not so literate… that’s the capital of Venezuela (where President Hugo Chavez is…) – what in the world is she doing there? I’ve no idea, but she’s not having such a good time. Makes you wonder…

It sounds like she’s in the middle of the jungle… but Caracas, as far as I know it’s a city… like any other. I know people from there~~ And… it’s not that close to the Equator. I’m sure of that, I passed my South American geography tests in school…

Also, water pipes or water is not working? I suppose there’s no electricity? How do we get this message? I’m beginning to suspect Google is not translating properly… or what? Could Yu be in the jungle? What for? Saving rain forest one at a time? New PB? Is she suffering like she seems from this translation?

Can someone translate?

Also… nothing good to eat? Sounds dreadful… and not so PB. She’s up to something, what is it?? I’m sure if she wanted to visit Latin America for its food, she would stop by Peru *hint hint nudge nudge* after all, isn’t Peruvian food known for it’s +400 typical dishes? Plenty to eat, and to photograph I tell you… xD Meh, I’m getting hungry just talking about it… geez~

**EDIT** (almost 4am)
Okay, tried my “own” translation, HA! It seems this update begins OK, here it is (please, feel free to correct):
