So this is going to be a lot shorter than my Yokohama reports, mostly because I spent the second half of the show in a total daze.

far fewer words )

So here's my report. It's taken me forever, partly because I went to the concerts at the beginning of my trip instead of the end like I usually do, I was super busy running around every day, and then when I got back it was straight back to work where everything is horrible, plus jet lag killing me. Basically what I'm telling you is I'm a garbage human being who's really great at starting things but gets overwhelmed and can't finish them without Herculean effort.

Anyway, I've done my best to divide the report so it's easier to read: first with my seats, then the first half of the show, the MCs, then the second half and encores. If any of the girls I went with want to chime in with stuff I missed in comments, please feel free <3 I hope this is sort of helpful for those of you who didn't get to go this year for whatever reason. It's gonna be great on DVD! Don't forget there's gonna be a broadcast of the concert on 12/6 on WOWOW, preceeded by a broadcast of "Hard Luck Hero" and "Hold Up Down"! I'm curious how different the broadcast will be from the DVD (if it will be at all). If nothing else, I hope the DVD comes out quickly, because I'm jonesin hard for it. This is a really, REALLY well-produced show, and I'm just so happy with everything about this whole tour.

Photo posts of goods will come later. For now, enjoy the words!

oh god so many words )

Second round of pictures from Kyoto. I didn't have a chance to go to Entoku-in the past few times I've been in Kyoto, and I'm really glad I got to go this time. It was gorgeous, and virtually devoid of other people (a welcome respite during Silver Week).

oh wrap the ground around your gentle winding mind )

The second this showed up in my inbox, I knew it was going to be dorky and stupid because it's Okada. I was not disappointed.

it's today! )

Took my camera with me back to Japan but only got to take pictures around Kyoto (couldn't in Tokyo since I was basically going to cons every day after sightseeing in the morning and they don't let you take cameras into the venue). It was great to revisit a lot of the places I'd been before but didn't get to spend a lot of time exploring.

no words no talk we'll go dreaming )

I have my con reports halfway written but I just don't feel like finishing writing them, or scanning the many things I bought, so here's a short translation of an interview that popped up on my Twitter feed months and months ago that I wanted to translate. Not much real info about V6 or anything, but it's still a nice little interview.

Our team has a lot of love for V6 )

Work has kept me so busy lately I haven't gotten to translate V6 things and that makes me sad. Since I'm done with most of my prep for Japanese preschool this week, here's a short translation.

I love looking for cookware in Kappabashi. I feel like a kid in a candy store.  )

Since I ended up having to cancel all my plans today, I decided I should be productive and translated the last 3 pages of the V6 interview. Part 1 is here. Now if you'll excuse me, I can feel myself melting into the ground. Soon I will become one with the Earth's core, yet even the molten core of the giant floating ball on which we all live can't match the burning love I feel in my heart for these six weirdos.

part 2 )

I thought about just doing this all in one go, but I would hate for this to get overwhelming and then I never finish it (like so many of my translation projects). So I'm gonna try to do about 100-ish lines at a time and see how far that gets me. This is about 13/4 of the 31/2-4 total pages that this interview takes up, so we're nearing halfway done! The next section will probably be done sometime next week, since the rest of this week and weekend is super busy for me.

THAT HAVING BEEN SAID! Enjoy this lovely interview. V6 start off talking about the colour blue, and then about "Timeless" and "SPOT LIGHT," and then about "24 Hour TV" (bonus talk about HSJ! (not much, though)). I haven't skimmed much of the next section, but it does start with them talking about the tour and !!!

Trying to get out and see as much of the PNW as I can before I move next year. Finally went to Discovery Park and saw the Lighthouse.

the sky broke apart and you appeared )

Also, if you feel like throwing a couple bucks my way per month to help me get by/take more photos/go more places to take more photos, I created at Patreon here. (Seriously, no worries if you can't. It's not like I'm going to stop taking photos or posting them here, but a couple bucks a month would go a long way)

Did a quick day trip up to Van City on Monday. I didn't get as much time to walk by myself with my camera as I wanted but oh well; excuse to go back (again).

if i could fly then i would know what life looks like from up above and down below )

I hate how much I love this song. I'm placing the blame for this squarely on [livejournal.com profile] clipsie AND I HOPE SHE'S REAL HAPPY WITH HERSELF. Excuse me, I need to go put on one of my pretty dresses and dance around a diner and drink milkshakes. It'll be like my own personal "Grease"

a super simple and quick translation. I love this song too much. It's like the soundtrack to my 20's.

Another stupid email from these stupid squishy children. I meant to have this done days ago but kept getting caught up with other shit (mostly getting too hype to this album).

For all the times I've been to Instagram Point Gasworks, I've never actually taken photos there, so I took my camera out on the nicest day of the year (so far).

all these days just pass me by )

It's my favourite time of year here and I finally went out and went to the Arboretum. Hooray, more pictures of flowers! (god knows I don't have enough of those)

let's get this started girl )

It's Spring in Seattle which means only one thing: everyone and their mom at UW taking pictures of the cherry blossoms. And my friends and I doing hanami.

Hey, y'all. In an attempt to get more serious at photography, I decided to set up FotoMoto on my photo portfolio site and added a bunch more photos. If you want to decorate your space or even just your desktop with one of my sometimes not shitty picutres, please consider doing so. Everything is here.

I've also started a tumblr for my photography. I'll still be posting stuff here, but I guess I'm a raging narcissist. So yeah, follow sorezorenosora if you want.

Thanks, y'all. Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.
