Unsung hero of Morning Musume Greetings! I hope everyone is doing well. It looks like it is going to be another warm and sunny day in SoCal.

I mentioned a couple of times that I became familiar with Morning Musume (MM) thanks to the PV for “Joshi Kashimashi Monogatari” (JKM). It was through this PV that I got to learn who the members were, at least at the time of that single. I al...

Favorite Japanese Words I’d like to switch gears with this post. My aim is to have fun! OK, so, without any further ado, here is my topic . . . MY FAVORITE JAPANESE WORDS! :good:

My #1 favorite would have to be ‘doki doki.’ It means ‘fast beating heart,’ or ‘heart palpitations.’ It seems to come in handy for lyricists, one can hear it frequently in songs. Consider “Night of...

Career updates you probably don't care about Greetings! In this post, I’m going to give some career updates for a couple of people I’ve been thinking about lately.

The first person of interest is Asuka Hinoi :wub: . It seemed like Asuka’s career had hit a low point in 2009. She basically had nothing going on. She stuck with it, though, and her career is starting to come back. Nothing that big...

Duos: groups of two girls that I like What’s happening? I hope everything is going well for you. I made my first visit to Legoland in Carlsbad, California on Sunday. It was fun. I especially liked the boat tour that showed, among other things, the Taj Mahal and Mount Rushmore made out of Lego blocks.

Today, I’d like to address duos, groups of two girls, that I like. As I did previously, the...
