[Music Selection] May 2016: PV Side

My damn timing is completely out of whack. Let's blame no internet, crappy library internet (it's internet, at least), packing / moving and being ill. So, if this isn't as lengthy as usual, I apologise. Is what it is.

This PV Selection post for the month of May is going to be a lot snappier than usual, so don't expect me to drone on with the PV descriptions. I am literally gonna leave what was in my head at the time, and hey, I might keep it that way for the future PV Selection posts! I actually enjoy not giving too much away sometimes, and how quick my thought process is upon my first view of a video. So, yeah, it might stay this way, it might not. We shall seeeeeeee!

Anywhoo... Music Selection is a monthly post, in which I create two separate articles about the Music and Videos I have enjoyed from the month gone by. This is of course all for fun, and if something is not listed here that you have enjoyed yourself, do not fret; this is not a serious release at all, just something made for the heck of it, and to keep on top of Idol releases. Don't read too much into whatever I post. Opinions be different from every which way, y'know.

Okay, PV TIME!!!

Avoiding Spinster-Hood... Niigaki Risa's Gettin' MARRIED!!!

On June 13th 2016, Niigaki Risa made the announcement on her official blog that... dayumn... she's getting hitched, y'all!

To my darling Amanda, thanks for the tip off about this, boo! Love ya <3 <3 <3

Niigaki as Yona from 'Akatsuki no Yona'
My Forever Queen and first ever Kami-Oshi is going to get married. Finally, the day has come where she's revealed the guy she managed to shackle to her for the rest of her life, and finally she has relieved me of that nagging feeling that she'll live the rest of her beautiful life a spinster, because let's face it; I thought that she was never going to get married, not when her one true love Ai-butt had a husband and she was left to wallow in heart break. But nope. She's deceived those odds of mine, and she's got a ring on her finger, and soon she'll walk down an aisle and marry her husband-to-be. It shall be beautiful!!! -sniff-

Seriously though, I did think she'd just become a spinster. That, or she and Ai would run off into the sunset together after claiming their undying love for one another. Heck, that could still potentially happen, so I'm waiting for that day with bated breath.

Niigaki and Yoshikazu for the stage play 'Sin of Sleeping Snow'


The announcement made revealed that, come July, Gaki will marry fellow actor Yoshikzau Kotani, whom she met in 2014 when they acted alongside one another in the Zettai Kareshi (Absolute Boyfriend) stage play. They have since been dating, and after two years the two have decided to get married and become a family.

Gaki has noted her desire to continue working as an actress, and hopes for the fans support as she heads into her future to create a family of her own with Yoshikazu. Likewise, Yoshikazu has expressed his desire to create a family filled with smiles beside Gaki, and that he hopes his friends, family and fans support their decision.

As a fan of Gaki, I truly am happy for her. I'm glad she's found someone she seems to adore, and that she wants to spend the rest of her life with him and share not only love and happiness, but woes and hardships, too. It's a big step in her life as a young woman, and whilst I am a little surprised, I am extremely ecstatic for her, too.

I love Gaki, and I just want her to smile and be happy. I'm glad that she's doing this, and hat she's going to continue working hard as an actress alongside her husband on the stage that she adores so much.

Congratulations, Gaki-san! I'm over the moon for ya!!!

But please, do keep in mind running off with Ai-butt. It's what we all secretly hope for, huhuhu~

Much Love,

[Music Selection] May 2016: Music Side

Howdy there y'all, and welcome back to my Monthly Selection, where I share with you my favourites in Music and Video from the Month(s) gone by! We have just come into June, a month where the sun is high and the evenings warm. Hopefully the summer days will be kind to us all, and heck, I might even get a tan if I'm lucky!

Anyways, as per usual, I am here with my Music Selection for the past month that was May. Will there be anything here that you will enjoy, too, or something you enjoyed just as much as I did?

As per freakin' usual, all songs listed here are subject to my opinion. You don't have to agree with me, you don't need to like what I did, and you sure as heck don't have to have the same tastes as I do! This post is simply here to give a general look into what I personally enjoyed, and for you to check out a few songs yourself to see if ought or nought takes your fancy. We have our own unique tastes, some which may collide and hug it out, however you don't need to like what I do. Just read on, have fun, and check out some music!

Also, if you have your own suggestions and favourites, please leave them here with me, or create your own post about them! It'd be fun to get an idea of what everyone else enjoys!

Suggesting is the game of it all, and Selection's in the name. It's like a mild form of Hunger Games, where the songs battle it out and what not, you know? xD

It's just a series made for fun, and to share music with you guys as well as to help me keep on top of current and past releases. It also makes my list compilation for the end of the year a damn sight easier, let me tell you! It's like my own shared archive, y'know? Yeah, you know! :D

Okay, we good, Chii? We good! Let's look at some music!

Updates in Life: June 2016

Due to both unforeseen and planned circumstances, I am here to give you all a quick update on what is currently happening in life, and why I have yet to post my darned Music and PV Selections for May 2016. Because I don't want to keep y'all out of the loop, I find it best to talk about it here, and to let you know what the heck is going on in life, and all that nonsense.

So, yeah. Let's get to it!

First things first; I have no internet. One of my former house mates thought it wise to cancel the internet (without asking anyone still living there if we were going to need it), and yes, I am sore about that, because whilst it doesn't hinder her in any way, it does stop me from blogging on here, Selective Hearing, as well as any other places I may be a part of. It also means I can't update HouPri news as quickly and efficiently, and it also means uploading videos is not happening any time soon. So, yeah. No internet at all in the house, not until I move out on the 22nd and return to my parents.

And even then, internet time is short there, considering I have a niece and two nephews who rather enjoy attention... not that I mind, because d'aaaaaawwww, BABIES!!!

So, yeah, I am on a bit of borrowed time now in terms of what I can do on the internet, because I will be using the library services at University as much as I can. It is this reason for why my Music Selection post is going to be late. That, and I keep forgetting to make and put the damn logo on my laptop. So that one is all on me, naturally, haha.

So, late posts shall be late, and there is a big chance you won't be seeing any PV reviews this month, unless they're to the point and include zero pictures, which isn't me, so I might just stick to single reviews (which I haven't done since December, so I think it's about damn time).

All that said, no internet actually is a blessing in disguise, somehow; I'm getting some planning done for a story I might use as my final project piece for third year. It's actually going pretty well, and it is filling my time, too!

Oh yeah, by the way, second year is finished! Now I just need some results back!!! :S

In regards to the internet though, I won't be on it so much even when I come home, at least not for June, and for some of July I'll be on only a small amount. This is because on June 25th, I am going to see some friends until the 27th, and from July 13th until the 25th, I will be going to Poland and staying with my friend because, y'know, travel bug and all that. So, yeah, if you see me posting very little for the next two months, keep in mind I'm going to be busy, either with dissertation plans, travel or crying over zero internet.

I'm going to try my darndest to update as much as I can with what little internet I have, however if you don't see me much, I apologise, but really, in this instance, my absence is actually out of my hands.

Until I see all you lovely people next time, please take care, enjoy life and, of course, love yo Idols!!!

Much Love,
