Favorites song of now... Kuchizuke

In a vain effort to .. well.. ATTEMPT to divert my attention away from Sasuke.. yeah.. lol ehem.. I've been making an effort to learn about new music. Thanks to Mr.Mike's Blog and other blogs from the SasukeFans site I've been seeing new things and expanding my horizons. As a few from the board will know I think a LOT of songs when I see pictures.. so for example I see a picture of...

Uhm.. Damn... Makoto Nagano ©Muscle Park 2007

You've got to be kidding.. Oh come on.. you'd think for a second... okay alright.. sorry.. he's hot.. Which reminds me.. My darling husband has been fighting back.. he decides to.. a couple days ago.. delay playing a game with me by watching TV in the other room. I'm wondering what is taking him so long.. (he did say he was coming to play.. "Soon™") so finally he comes in with a grin on his face... logs into the game I'm playing (an online Role Playing Game) and announces to his male friends that he got his Jeri Ryan fix for the day..

Jeri Ryan as "Seven of Nine" ©Memory Alpha which I decided to remind him I got my Makoto Nagano fix earlier in the afternoon. He sticks out his tongue and we continue to play the game :p

ANYWAY.. where was I .. okay.. I was staring at the Nagano picture.. and immediately thought of a new song I found.

Kuchizuke by L'Arc~En~Ciel

Now this song is hooooooooooooooot. Adore the beat.. especially the middle section of the song. In the link provided above is a link to the song that's embedded in the site (which has the lyrics on the screen) but couldn't figure out how to link it here.. so there you go :p

This particular song I found by complete accident. Earlier in the year I actually found the the song..

Ready Steady Go! by L'Arc~En~Ciel

.. and no... I haven't seen the anime Full Metal Alchemist of which this is the Season Two opening theme... yes yes.. I know.. Sacrilege.. Anyway.. I fell in love with the song and bought the SMILE album since it had both the Full version of the Ready Steady Go! Song and the Karaoke version (which they called "Hyde-less" version). One day I pop in the CD in my player and start it from the beginning and BAM I run into Kuchizuke from the start.. It's the first song on the album. I was very surprised to hear this song. I don't know much at all about the band and frankly hearing the rest of the album was okay.. I got my money's worth by getting 3 songs from one album I like listening to. The others are a bit too JPoppy for me.

Back to Nagano (Sorry Holly and Tricia.. LOL).. One of the rare times you see him GOOD in jeans.. I mean wtf.. does this man not own a good pair of jeans? Apparently in 2007 he did as witnessed in this Muscle Park Blog dated May 4, 2007.

Yeeeeeeeeeehaw.. Nagano doing the arm-bike ©Muscle Park 2007

P.S. This was probably the last time you see Nagano not announce his "visit" since apparently from the pictures.. he was instantly recognized and caused quite a stir.. I think it was the jeans.. Why was I staring at the old picture anyway? Because he's going to be in Muscle Park on Saturday, July 19th! Here's to hoping Monster 9 decides to tape this sucker so I can see it in Sasuke Maniac!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Fine looking man, ain't he? Oh yeah, and the music was good too. Thanks. :)

Arsenette said...

I really do hope a) He wears jeans again.. b) TBS shows it on Sasuke Maniac so I can c) BLOG IT!

tricia said...

Face it, Nagano makes a paper sack look good. Except for the rolled up jeans and white legs (put on your shades everyone!) has he ever looked bad? And actually, he didn't look horrible in those rolled up things. Don't think I've ever or will ever complain about one of his pictures.

Love this pic arsenette! I lost the pic of him sporting jeans while he was at some kind of ship building event that was from bunny's previous site. Thanks for keeping all of us up-to-date with the latest news.

Unknown said...

Hiya - I found your blog because I just got really into Sasuke and I've really been enjoying reading your comments. (and looking at your caps!) Nagano looks great in jeans, I wish he'd wear them more often!!

Also, I just started listening to L'Arc En Ciel recently and Ready Steady Go is one of my favorite songs of theirs - it's so great! I haven't heard Kuchizuke yet, I'll have to check it out.

Anyway, thanks for all the fun Sasuke posts!

Anna said...

Boy, he really does look great in jeans or anything else he wants to wear (even that worn out NM shirt)!

Thanks for helping me get my Makoto Nagano fix for the day! ;)

Rufus said...

I pretty much depend on your blog for Sasuke related goodness, then I come here and am horrified to learn that you are "distracting" yourself from it!

Luckily, that was the worst attempt at not talking about anything Sasuke related I have seen since, well, me! Thanks!

Arsenette said...

aahahahahah thanks guys and gals :) Yeah as SKW and Tricia can attest to I spent a llllllllot of time looking at old pictures.. dissecting them.. critiquing.. (did I spell that right??) and had waaaaaaaaaay too much fun with it. Heck.. I have Takeda and Nagano as the quinticenssial (there goes that spelling again) Bill and Ted from "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventures".. if I'm brave enough (because so many people read this now being part of community.. I might MIGHT share some of those pictures (mostly screencaps of Sasuke/Kunoichi).. I'd be horrified if they ever ran into it and said .. wtf.... LOL

Karen I have the picture but trying to find the actual site (I believe it's best to actually link it so they get credit as well (and I won't be sued LOL)). I'll see what I can come up with this afternoon.

P.S. Thanks Laura! I really did fall in love with that song! I think you might like it too if you liked Ready Steady Go!

Unknown said...

Hi! Thanks for telling me about your blog, it's awesome!
Makoto wearing jeans is just... I don't even have words to describe it!
Now I'm going to read all the older posts and watch all the pics... This will be a Ninja warrior full immersion!

Arsenette said...

Hello Francesca! Oh I hope you enjoy it :) It's the tip of the iceberg though. I started with Sasuke 20 being the 10th anniversary. Maybe I'll do other posts of the older ones.. hmm.. that's a project LOL.

Karen I found your pics but I haven't found the website they are from.. debating doing a post on them alone.... :p

Mr. Mike said...

Thanks for the mention Arsenette! Enjoyed the post.

Arsenette said...

Aww Thank you very much Mr. Mike :) Though I keep thinking of your own blog .. er.. specific one.. where you decided to post YOUR favorite eyecandy.. :D I showed that hubby when I first saw it last year and he as dying!

Some Kinda Wonderful said...

Elsie, you are a wonder! I love love LOVE the new header. It's so groovy and it makes me happy to look at it. You are the "happiness" genie. Thanks. :)

Arsenette said...

Yay! Mission accomplished :) I just smile when I see these photos! Especially the ones that either look mischievious (like snowy's tweetie pic) or the YOU SUCK laughter photo's of Shingo and Bunpei. Soooooooo many to chose from though :)

My thought basically was to create a banner that made people smile. I enjoy the show still and when I ignore the G4 nonsense I still smile when I see the people enjoying themselves either on the show or promoting it. That's what makes it "Sasuke" for me.

tricia said...

It looks great Elsie! You are really talented. I would be doing good to get only one posted.

Is it permanent?

Arsenette said...

The banner you mean? Yeah until I think of something else teheheheh if I misunderstood ya sorry!

tricia said...

You understood perfectly.
