Aaaah! I just did my first correlations… The results are not that significant… Anyway, the work is progressing little by little…

I also saw the entry with the translation about Maru’s j-web entry. He only mentions KT at the last line. Oh no! And what are we going to do now? Jin will not be back and even Maru is no longer interested? In order not to mention that there was no Akame evidence for months. No member ai! The world is crumbling down! I am so tired of the fandom… Why don’t they focus on something else? At least I bought No More Pain album. It shipped today! That's all that counts for me.

And the other day the bus drivers went on strike because they didn’t get paid. Today I heard about nurses who were complaining because they weren’t paid their extra and duty hours. But who gets paid in this country? What is functioning properly? TV? Yes, it's been since last month we have digital signal. Glad for the luxury, but hey... Is TV is going to do something about the economy and pessimism? And the various bank ads... Yes banks are trying to solve our problems apparenty. They are responsible and think of the people... Just like those proud politicians.

Bah… I am so glad I am doing what I have to do, but everything else is so… blah… But at least next Thursday I am going to Kalamata. Vacations! Yey!

From Cracked: 19 pills that would be awesome to have.

Check the list and then pay attention to this: proof that Jin isn't a douche. He doesn't match the description.

Love you Jinnie! Welcome back in Japan!

How many people must get killed completely uselessly in this country?
Brainless terrorists, bullies of syndicalists, narcissistic policemen and anarchists should all go to another planet.

Aaah, I just read manonpikamishi's report about You and Jιn in Los Angeles.

What stroke me ws that... "Jin hid everything that made him Jin. He hid his beautiful voice by auto-tuning every song except Lovejuice, Wonder, and maybe one other one, he hid his face under sunglasses, a hat, and his long hair, and he didn't bother to sing a Japanese song".
I wonder if this what people who love him think... because I am sure the people who just want him to be hot don't care. Everyone said he's a great dancer though and as American dancers (or stuff as well?) seem more willing to talk to the fans after the show is over, they said that he's a nice guy. Everyone seems to like him! XD And now it has been announced that his American tour is going to continue till Sepetember - October, a little before he goes back in Japan that is.

Personally I know many people say that he shouldn't be in KT but that's why I want him there. This is where he shows what he can be. His american dream is... just masking what he is... It's like him avoiding work on his true potential. I don't think he is lazy. He has shown that he can be very meticulous and perfectionist if he wants. It's just like... it's easier for him to appear cool? Does he prefer dancing than doing all the other things KAT-TUN do? Of course he loves having fun with them. Maybe he just hates to get bored and he gets bored easily. I wish I knew. The only thing I am sure is that he is talented and that I love him. And it seems he is a nice and friendly guy. Jin show what you've got! I miss you in KAT-TUN but be happy and get back soon!

I feel like shit… I am the kind of student that can write almost perfectly, I learn quickly and I have many kinds of skills. But hell… everything seems useless. I am trapped in a nightmare. A life I don’t want, doing things that seem pointless. How the hell I am supposed to learn how to do a research of a higher level with minimal direction? Hell… I DON’T KNOW HOW TO DO THINGS. I don’t know about getting a permit, I don’t know that many people, especially not with children of a specific age, I don’t know what exactly the university asks from me. The prof can’t even answer a simple question with a yes or no and then asks me to meet with another prof for the methodology when he expects me to talk about RESULTS and analysis. Which I don’t have. I seem like an idiot to my profs and I feel useless. No self-esteem to go on. I stay inside and keep writing, keep thinking and keep analyzing and no results and no satisfaction. Just many – many papers of text that seem vain to me. I have never missed a deadline in my life. I have always tried my best. And now I feel disappointed with everything and scared. I don't even feed properly... mostly with unhealthy snacks and even this makes me feel guilty. And finally I can cry… I don’t know why I write this. I just do…

Arg! Who dared to rate Rabbit or Wolf and Rockin’ all nite with 3/10?!!! Two of my 3 favorite songs of the album! I am going to write my own review as well! Just for my friends. I got over the shock, took a can of beer and listened to the album last night. It’s ok! I still love KAT-TUN, the happiness came back and I still need them. Can’t toss them away.
So, let’s begin! (Lol when I created the audio CD the songs got in totally in random. WTH?)

1. No more pain (N.M.P.)
What I like the most about this song… The amazing epic music with the orchestra? The wonderful vocals? The dynamism? Everything. *LOVE*
Ah, someone said - again - after watching the video that they listen to KT for the hotness, not the music. Yes, because orchestral music is one with the least value on Eath. Girl, you just prove *your* priorities.
2. Love yourself ~kimi ga kirai na kimi ga suki~
Perfect beat, nice vocals, dynamism and a happy feeling. This song is great. I don’t mind the small autotune parts and I love Jin’s rap-like vocals. A song to listen with earphones!
3. Faraway
It’s a cute song with a nice feeling. Mid-tempo pop, kinda relaxing with a touch of dynamism. Approved.
4. The D-Motion
This song… I hated. The autotune, the brutal rythm, everything. But it’s joyful. And I like Tat-chan’s vocals. And I got used to it. It’s ok I guess. Acceptable.
5. Right now
I was afraid that this song was totally k-pop. But it begins with Maru’s beatbox. Koreans have no such a good beatboxer as far as I know. And there was some nice electric guitar for a moment. Instant win. The rhythm is rather nice and the vocals good. I only wish the autotune was spared. But acceptable! (With an exclamation mark).
6. Rockin’ all nite
This song is a combination of rock with something fun and a dance tune I can’t identify. I wonder if it could be danced with rock’n’roll steps.... It reminds me of a Kanjani song! The more I listened to it the more I liked. Instant win and *LOVE*
7. Going!
A dynamic song with mid to fast tempo electronic music with a lot of autotune. But I like the vocals and the beat a lot. I listen to it gladly.
8. Sweet
The most indifferent Kame’s solo for me until now. But the rhythm is nice, the music relaxing and his voice always sweet with a touch of aggressivity. He even attempted high notes this time. Oh, Kazu, you always try so hard! Learning the guitar, doing more vocal and dance lessons… <33
9. Love Music
I don’t know why I always like Junno’s solos. This song has a nice feeling and Junno is getting better with high notes. And he even attempts some rapping. In total it has a sweet feeling and a beat that makes you want to move. Approved. Junno and Maru are KT’s silent force!
10. Make U wet –chapter 2–
This is the 4th Koki’s solo in a raw that I like. I like the beat, the vocals… and it even has some melody. It *is* sexy I guess but that’s not the point for me. I think I like the softness of the vocals, both Koki’s and the few female ones at the background.
11. Rabbit or Wolf
Tat-chaaaaaan! <33 He wrote a rock song! With very interesting lyrics! This song is dynamic even though the lyrics are of a fairy tale with a sad moral. Very fast tempo, *amazing* vocals and electric guitar and… even the small autotune parts sound fitting. Thank you Tat-chan! *LOVE*
12. Film
Nakamaru’s solo and a song sweet as him. A touch of autotune, which I have no idea what purpose it serves. I hope it has something to do with the lyrics somehow. Well, the music is electronic anyway. But beatbox would be better.
13. Promise song
A ballad, the only one of the album! Sweet piano, violins and vocals. The summer equivalent of White X’mas? Hahahaha. Why not!
14. Hello
This song is meant to remind us of Six senses. With the mingling of k-pop. Mid to fast nice tempo and nice beat. I might have liked the song if it had better vocals, especially from Kame. It’s not just the k-pop aspect that I don’t like. The ‘nananana’ addition towards the middle of the song is a nice addition. But in general… do not want. I prefer Six senses.

Yes, I’ll definitely buy the album! But please, more rock songs in the future… there were like just one in the album? I love your rock side so much guys!!! Please!

Ok, maybe you won’t believe what you are going to read. Yesterday I was so shocked I got my friends worry. And the reason? KAT-TUN. Yes, you read it right.
I love their music very much. You know that. But after the wonderful Rescue they give us singles like the ok Love yourself, mediocre Going! And they include the bad D-motion. Ok, little by little I got used to the autotune and I have caught myself enjoying D-motion very much once. It’s not just the kind of song for which I’ll say “ah I want to listen to that right now”.
But it was ok. They gave us the amazing Νο more pain, with a seemingly great video and Tat-chan sang Rabbit or Wolf. So I though that the KT I love are always there. I didn’t mind the fact that I wasn’t so excited about Kame’s Sweet and Promise Song. And then I heard 55 seconds from Right Now and HELLO. And it was kpop. Better than usual kpop for my friends but still it was kpop. And I was horrified. Are my fears getting real? Is it the only thing that sells these days? But, if I wanted to listen to kpop I would listen to Korean artists! And they are cheaper! Should I buy 2 Korean albums and say it’s KT?
I listened to HELLO 3 times and I still can’t find one good thing to it. I don’t like the music or the vocals and I can mostly make out Kame’s voice, which does nothing to me what’s more. It’s worse than D-motion. Can you believe that I’d rather listen to RnB than this kind of songs? Yes, I’ve come that far.
And now I feel like I have to take a step back from everything. KAT-TUN is just an idol group. The fact that I loved their music that much was only incidental. I don’t know if I want to listen to their album now, but I guess I will and that I’ll buy it sometime. I said some pretty nasty things about them and Korean music last night. I felt betrayed and I even insulted them. Does that make me a bad fan when it’s all the love I had for them that made me react that way? Yes, past tense. How am I supposed to react to betrayal? Betrayal kills the love in a second. I still hope I will get it back. I will be waiting for Jin to get back. I know he can’t change much and that KT can go on without him. They know how to survive. But I need his touch. I trust his taste in music and I love his haughty character. Maybe he can step up to those who give songs to KT. Or so I wish…
*sigh* I can’t believe that 4 and a half minutes of music can get me in such a shock. And Jin can’t be my psychological rescue boat. What should I do? Listen to HELLO as many times as I need in order to get used to it? Forget KT already? Just wait to hear more songs with the fear of getting even more disappointed? Most of all, I don’t want to change for their sake. I need them to give me strength and hold me still, not take me wherever they want. Heee… with the exception of their home country.
So… yeap. Ok. I think I calmed down. Enough with my fandom stories… But even politics suck these days. At least my studies seem to go fine. Rejoice Marilena! At least you had all those lovely memories with KT and all the lovely songs they sang up until now.

EDIT: the 4th time I listened to Hello was better. But it still left me empty as a song... ah well...

Wow... after reading this I realise that k-pop is more and more into the Japanese show business.
I don't know... the fact that I don't like k-pop doesn't mean that I have something against it. I just want the things I love unaffected -  in this way at least. Am I that scared to lose the things I love?... *sigh* And my nose makes me sick today.

Ah, and for the greeks, my comments for Eurovision are in my greek blog.

The Jin drawing I made the other day. I don't know why I chose the pic with the fedora... but I always find pics with hands interesting. I only put ink on the eyes and the pencil looks faded and the cheeks too round but well... I tried!
