My NEWS LIVE album rant

23:39 JST September 14, 2010 1 comment

I couldn’t help but take a detour home via the record store to see if they were selling the new NEWS album a day early…and quite a few fans must have been thinking the same as me because a lot of shelf space where albums should have been were empty!

I bought the limited edition, which comes with the Unplugged DVD of four songs: Sakura Girl, SUMMER TIME, Aki no Sora, and SNOW EXPRESS.

The performances are amazing.  My new favourite song is Aki no Sora 🙂

The limited edition has a foldout newspaper with all of the lyrics and random little advertisements for their album release, upcoming dome tour, and…a NEW SINGLE!?

Does this mean NEWS will release another single within the year?  I hope so!

Still haven’t listened to all of the songs, but so far so good!  I feel like the group have more developed singing voices now, especially Tegoshi.

Right, back to writing up another blog post…just had some news come in.

Have a good night everyone!

Behind the scenes at Nino’s fridge commercial

10:05 JST September 14, 2010 Leave a comment

Playing around on set, wanting to eat food but not being able to eat food, Arashi’s Kazunari Ninomiya (27) was all smiles at his latest commercial shoot for Hitachi’s refrigerator, reports Oricon.

In the third installment of Arashi’s Hitachi home appliance commercials, Ninomiya had been chosen to advertise refrigerators.

In the commercial, Ninomiya comes home to his apartment to find a letter from his mother, who says she had dropped by and had cut up some fresh sashimi for him.  Although delighted to find the sashimi in his fridge, the phone rings, followed by a knock on the door by the courier man.  With so many distractions, will Ninomiya ever be able to eat his sashimi…

During the shoot, Ninomiya had been reported to have said his apartment set was very fashionable.  He could not help but check out the refrigerator, play around with the ornaments, relax on the sofa during breaks, and even played with the kendama toy, putting on a smile and making a peace sign when he had got it right.

Ninomiya’s Hitachi commercial will go on air from September 18.

His group members Sho Sakurai (28) and Masaki Aiba (27) have already released commercials for vacuum cleaners and washing machines respectively.

K-chan NEWS live radio

Tonight’s Kちゃん NEWS is live!  Hooray!

Keiichiro Koyama, Yuya Tegoshi, and Shigeaki Kato talking live, yay 😀

The theme for tonight’s show is “what are you doing right now?”

So…I decided to type up this blog post as it happens! (Momo)

– Koyama has sent a text to Massu to ask him what he is doing right now and hopefully he will reply during the show.  Tegoshi thinks he’s eating yakitori.

– It’s the day before the new NEWS album is released!  The three say that some people might be lucky and be able to buy the album today…

– Kato went fishing with Satoshi Ohno (Arashi) during the weekend.  He says he didn’t put on sunscreen so will look very tanned on TV show 笑っていいとも! today.  Koyama reminds Kato that he’s going on today’s show to promote NEWS, but Kato says his tanned self is really a promotion in itself.  He insists it will catch the viewer’s attention, making them think “oh, there is a dark guy in NEWS”.

– The three reveal that Massu is costume designer for the group’s upcoming concert tour.  No one knows what their costumes look like yet.  In terms of rehearsals, it had been hard for all six of them to get together at the same time because of different commitments so they have not had as many group rehearsals as usual.

– The three talked about emails being sent in from listeners.  One listener said they were studying, another was asking a boy she liked to a movie and was waiting for a reply, one was wondering what to wear to the upcoming NEWS concerts, and one was daydreaming about Tegoshi…to which Tegoshi gave the listeners a kiss on radio (cute!).

– Massu didn’t reply in time (waaah…) and Tegoshi still says he’s out eating yakitori (um, it’s 12:20am Tegoshi…).

– Show is about to finish and Tegoshi says he wants to keep talking live for another two hours.  Koyama says they can, it just won’t be broadcast.

– Songs played tonight: BE FUNKY! and LIVE.
