Never Forget…

UZA

I’m just finding it funny that everyone is all over Keyakizaka now because they are doing all these cool MVs and I a over here like, where were you when the AKB48 Fall single was the Cool one?

All seem to have forgotten that it was these cool singles that started the Million trend! Well, Yasusu remembers which is why he dedicated those types of songs to Keyakizaka. Everyone is all drooling thinking KKZ is the best thing since sliced bread meanwhile Yasusu is laughing his way to the bank!

Anyway, forever promoting UZA! That is one of the few songs that never left my On the Go playlist. Add in that kick ass choreo and well. And now that I can post these vids, maybe I should do more dance vids of the 48 group. Kazeifu, River, BEGINNER, BwT etc need some more love too. Too bad there is like, only 1 full performance of BwT and no Dance Ver. I want so bad to make a vid about it! I guess I have to wait for the Next PV BD Collection.

Never Forget

Whaaat

Dear Yukirin Fans out there, never forget that one time that Yukirin got to stand in front of the Elite, in front of Yuko-senpai (who was No.1 at the time during the Everyday Kachu period), in front of all the Kami 7 (she wasn’t yet a Kami at the time, man now that I think about it, this should have been such a spoiler for her new title of God Slayer but really, no one was expecting it!), Mayuyu and Sashiko on the last line with Yukirin at the front alone!!!

I shall never forget! Now I am only waiting for that moment to happen again (which I doubt it will because if she is to centre again, I am betting it will be with someone else again but if it is Mayuyu, no complaints whatsoever! If it does happen though there will be tears! Probability of Yukirin centring as single at the time was way higher than it is right now and the wait too long compared to the first time! And if this time it is not a TV performance but a single, then all that much more delicious. Though actually centring on TV is actually also quite powerful in and of itself. But then again, the feeling won’t be the same as say being in front of the likes of Yuko and Acchan.

Ah, the trifles of being a Yukirin fan…

Like, look at her! Who wouldn’t want to follow her seeing her from behind like that! Aaah just looking at that top pic makes me want to cry! So good, so grande, I totally understand why the Kouhai flock to her!

Dear Photographer, thank you so very much! And hats off to you for you managed to capture THE Yukirin in your photos!

Thank you.

Yeah, I am writing just to say that but I couldn’t resist. I just came across these images on Yukirin’s thread from one of the Japanese boards taken during this year’s Request Hour, where NGT took No.1 BTW,  and I just had to share the feelings these images evoked in me.

I am just so proud to be a supporter of hers.

Time to Level Up!

mglits

Did you just notice something different as soon as you got here? Sure it ain’t much but that wasn’t the point. Just like Yukirin had to up her game for ‘Lost in the Supermarket’, I figured it was about time I too stepped my game up!

Using two different blogs just to post one thing was getting really tiresome! You see, and I am sure some of you did notice, for a while now I have been writing posts and putting them up somewhere as drafts, then copying that draft and posting it here. If you click on images I am sure you noticed! Why this though? Why all this hard work? Well, it is because I had ran out of space and WordPress upgrades ain’t cheap!

I have seen many posts about how running your self hosted blog is much cheaper but those are all lies! If you want a true experience then self-hosting is actually going to cost you much more than all that cash (north of 400), it will give you migraines as well because running those things yourself, especially the setup, is no fun task!

But I tried it anyway! the new domain ‘yurigoggles’, previously ‘yuri-goggles’, though they still both belong to me and bring you here, was from that experiment on BlueHost. Needless to say it failed miserably. So I came back but I have used up all my space and thus could not post directly to this blog which is a pain.

And so I leaned on other blogs of mine for space, first it was the black-gekikara-miso one that was supposed to be my R-Rated blog. I used all the 3GB of space up. Next up was Blogspot. There is still plenty of space on it but I had to re-sort the layout and change CSS that resized images automatically before bringing the post here.

It was such a pain!

And so I decided to bite the bullet and go for a WordPress Upgrade.I had two options; Premium or Business. 100 bucks vs 300 per year! All I wanted was more space but WordPress got rid of space upgrades so you had to sign up for a plan. Premium was more reasonable at 100 per year but there was of course a catch. Maximum space was 17GB. Having already used it all up, over 17 (currently at around 17.9), the premium option was no good for me! Only choice left was the Business Plan. At 300 a year that is some decision making challenge right there. Having weighed the pros and cons, I realised that 300 for unlimited space, access to all themes including premium ones that you would pay for otherwise, and all that other stuff that I would never need, seemed like a sweet deal to me.

And so today I decided to cough up 300 bucks for my blog! No more relying on other sites for storage. Ability to change layout any-time I want to anything I want. Option to post videos directly on here, which will come in handy when Youtube gives me the finger, especially with AKB videos! Also I visited my site once as a visitor and saw those ugly ads. Sure they make me money and actually with the Business plan, they would have made me more but I decided to get rid of them! only on this plan can you do that so I did it. Am I stupid? Better stupid than being a beast!

So from now on we are back to normal, even better. No more referrals, no more ads, better experience for everyone, I think. I liked the theme I had before (Yoko), which is free so I kept it. Had a look at some other premium ones but wasn’t so hot on them! Isn’t it weird that when you have the option you don’t see the value in it any more?

Anyway, let’s enjoy the future here together and thank you always for visiting and commenting (to those who do).

Talk about bringing a gun to a knife fight!

akbku

Having already sobered from the high that is the sheer fact that we have the Kagoshimai facing off as the captains of Red and White teams in AKB48’s 6th Kouhaku Utagassen, I finally got the mind to sit down and look through the line-up and man…Talk about unequal ground! Things get even worse when you see the whole listing of the full members! Like, are you even serious Bruh?!

From talent to star-power Red Team has White beat in all regards. Dancers, singers, Kamis, Aces…Jesus Red team, what even?! There is no way that White team is going to win this without some strings being pulled!

Starting from the top, look at those captains!! Red has two of the most experienced ‘organisers’ in the group, one with her own solo tours (Yukirin) and the other with a whole group (Sasshi) and both a super nerds when it comes to Idols so like…I don’t even…. And let’s not forget the instrumentalists in Nao, who is backed-up by Sayanee, Rion and Aoi. Meanwhile don’t get me started on the vocals (Miyu, Erina, Sayanee, Yukirin) and dancing skills (Yokoyama Yui, Tano, Yuria, Jurina, etc, etc…!

Oh man, this is going to be some brutal experience!

Thank the Lord that I am mostly going into this for the Kagoshima combi. Yeah yeah, I know they are supposed to be competing but hey, at least finally AKS is recognising their duel value so this is a cause for flipping out in happiness!!!

What are the odds that instead of singing different songs like the captains that have come before, they instead both sing the same song and battle it out dance floor style? I mean Sakura VS Yukirin in a music performance battle is pure madness but if they were to perform the same song while doing the thing, al else is forgotten!

Alright, that is it. If you want the full listing, go to Stage48. They got you covered…

Dear Santa Y U Always Early?

Please don’t change!

I only wish I could get ‘Lost in the Supermarket’ before Christmas as well but hey, beggars can’t be choosers, am I right!

It has surely been too long since I got anything in the mail. But things are looking up and with Ahgassi starting to hit shelves around the world, Late Winter/Spring are going to be some great months!

First up I got Yukirin’s First tour Blu-ray, Tokyo Girls’ Style 21st Single CD that comes with a kinda PB, a movie that promises some interesting yuri in the form of those unique Japanese movies I have been missing lately and finally we got Aoyama-sensei’s fourth entry into the SCHOOL GIRL COMPLEX series. And of course it is all kinds of gay! TGS’s kinda PB is also kinda gey, everything is gey, except of course ma Goddess. Kind of hard to be gey by thy self you know! Sigh, how I wish the Majisuka Play was on here…

Another time then.

So be on the look out. When I get time I am scanning things and all that.
