気まぐれ春の日
DATE: 2007/04/26(Thu) 11:58 No.63

最近の空模様は本当に気まぐれやんね。
雨と晴れの社交ダンス。
洋服大変。

そういえば、つい最近、あるブランドのサンプルセールに行ったんやけど、
バックを3個も買ってしまった!!
70%OFFやからつい・・・
セールという言葉に弱い私。
水着も2着買ってしまいました・・・いつ着んねん!!
部屋着にもこだわりだしてきて、あまりに気持ちよかったので、
シルクワンピースも3着買ってしまいました。

春のぬるい風なんかが、髪の毛を揺らし始めると、
なんか始まる感満載になるね!
もうツアーまで1ヶ月きってしまって、実感があんまりないのに
せまるツアー。
喉の体力が持つかが本当に心配。
普段しゃべらんようになるかも(笑)
今回のツアーパンフめっちゃ面白くなってしまってん。
すごいボリュームで。
こんなパンフ見たことないよ。
心配はたくさんあるけど、いつもながらに、一期一会と感じる音楽、
祭りなライブをお届けします(^0^)/

P.S. ダシってすごいよね。かつおとこんぶのハーモニー。
   子どもってすごいよね。遺伝子と遺伝子のハーモニー。



A Fickle Spring Day
DATE:2007/04/26(Thu) 11:58 No.63

Lately the weather has been very fickle.
Itís social fun-time between rain and sun.
Even Western-style apparel has its problems.

Which reminds me, I recently went to a brand sample sale
and I bought 3 bags!!
They were 70% off so I guess it happened on accidentÖ
Iím a sucker for the word ďsale.Ē
I even bought 2 bathing suitsÖWhen will I be able to wear them?
I was also very much in the mood for loungewear
so I purchased 3 silk one-pieces.

When my hair starts to shimmer in the lukewarm spring breeze,
I begin to feel an extraordinary sensation!
Itís now a month until the tour--The tour Iím not feeling for at the moment
but it draws near anyway.
Iím worried if Iíll have the voice for it.
I should be prime ready to talk a lot as usual (haha)
The tour pamphlet this time around is really amusing.
Itís got volume.
Iíve never seen anything like it.
Though Iím still anxious Iíll be sure to make this
once-in-a-lifetime chance a festive one (^0^)/

P.S. Broth is amazing. A perfect harmony of fish and seaweed.
Children are amazing. A perfect harmony of gene and gene.

Ooh...thanks a lot Celsius005. Boogie
I like the shopping part. I would like to buy many one-pieces for this summer too. You know, one-piece dresses are HOT in this summer! XD

For some reasons I feel that she's rather anxious about the AI am BEST tour... Maybe Avex and her manager are pressing on her too much? First the promotion for this not-so-understandable compilation album, then the big tour around the country, then a-nation 2007, then her double-a single.... And a new studio album should be released soon too. Poor Ai-chin!

She seems to have some sympathy towards genes, doesn't she? This is reminding me of CHU-LIP ~~~ nazo idenchi? Maybe this is in some degree influenced by her fav horror 'The Ring'? Dunno but when she says smth about genes I suddenly think of 'The Ring'.... Tongue

Thanks for the translation Celsius! How would we do without your dedicated contribution all these while! Nod And thanks for updating the first post as an index too, that definitely make things easier to find. Wink

She said she went to a sale and bought 3 bags? Surprised I really wonder how she could shop just like a normal person without getting a huge amount of attention and stalkers following her as she shops (I would for sure!). Tongue Anyway, I'm not surprised she bought so much seeing she's rich enough to buy whatever she wants and she definitely deserve it for working so hard. Giggle

The tour pamphlet sounds interesting as well, I hope I can somehow get my hand on it. Anyone going to the concert is willing to purchase a copy of the pamphlet for me? Confused

Thanks so much Celsius.
Itīs very funny Smile I canīt imagine buying 3 bags even if itīs 99% discount. I just donīt need it, so why should I have it at home stuffed in the wardrobe? Do girls have plenties of bags just because they take a different one to each of their dresses? Donīt know, but it seems so Tongue

Thank you for the translation.
I guess every shopper will shop a lot if they see the word SALE. Tongue It seems that Ai is quite nervous and pressured about her new tour. I would also like to see that tour pamplet. It sounds exciting.

Thanks for the translation, Celsius.
I haven't been here for awhile so I have some catching up to do. I like how, aside from her buying a lot of clothes and accessories, she writes in her diary without a tone of conceitedness or superiority. If she wasn't talking about being on tour you could've mistaken the diary entry with the girl next door. I guess that's just something else appealing about Ai.

Thanks for the translations. It does seem that Avex are pushing her too much. Maybe the single was their decision also. She will be performing ALOT over summer I bet. Well best of luck to her.

7月!!
DATE: 2007/07/04(Wed) 13:16 No.64

やっと大好きな7月到来~!!
連日のツアーの合間にさっそくレコーディングやってます。
ミュージシャンの方は本当に面白いですね。
いいplayを聞くと思わず笑ってしまう癖があって。
音って笑わせることもできるんだねぇ。
最近いろんな楽器を練習して、一人BANDしようとしてる。
一番簡単な「さくらんぼ」をリハでやってみました。
ドラム、ベース、ギター、キーボード。
一応最後までたどり着いたけど、お遊戯みたいやった(笑)
その他、トランペット、ヴァイオリンを練習中。
トランペットはまともに音がでるのがたまーにくらいで、まだドレミファソラシドがやっと。
ヴァイオリンは、「星に願いを」を練習中。まだ一通り弾いただけで、音の美しさが果てしなく遠い。

楽器との出会いも一期一会。
出会うべくして出会い、その楽器を選んだ運命。
それがたとえつらい想いをしても、挫折しかけても、
一緒に過ごし、一緒に努力をして、一緒に微笑んで、音が生まれる。
大事なのは、前を向いて歩くこと。
楽器に背を向けず、向き合って解り合うこと。
逃げないこと。
そうして歴史に深みが増すから。

それに早く気づかなきゃ、人生もったいないっっっ☆



July!!
DATE: 2007/07/04(Wed) 13:16 No.64

Finally my beloved July has arrived!!
When weíre not touring, we get right to recording.
Musicians sure are interesting people.
Theyíve got this habit of laughing when they hear something go right.
Who knew that sounds could also bring about laughter?
Lately Iíve been practicing with a lot of instruments, trying to become one in the band.
We rehearsed with the simplest song, Sakuranbo.
I tried drums, bass, guitar and keyboard.
Well I managed to play through to the end, but it all seemed like more of a game than anything else, hehe.
Anyway Iím in the process of practicing trumpet and violin.
Iím having problems getting a single note to come out of a trumpet, so Iíve yet to accomplish the DoReMi scale.
On violin Iím learning "When you Wish Upon a Star". Itís basic so I still have a long way to go before I can bring out the true potential of its beauty.

Youíre introduced to an instrument only once.
Your acquaintance is the chosen fate of the instrument.
Even if you have a painful experienceóeven if you become discouraged,
Together you make it through, together you give it your all, together you smile. Then sound is born.
Whatís important is that you walk facing forward,
without turning your back to it, and coming to an understanding.
To never run away.
And then the rest is history, forever deepening.

Life is only wasted when this isnít realized early enough☆

Wow, Ai-chin is very profound when it comes to her music. She's trying to play all those instruments? So talented. ^_^ Every day I discover another reason to adore her. Thank you for the translation, it was much appreciated.

Wow, it would be really great if Ai-chin really learns how to play the violin well. I can so imagine how she will incorporate all these new sounds into her music and during the live performances she will be up there playing the violin along with her band! Cool indeed!
