I'm too lazy to make proper titles, besides, this is just random!

I was so surprised that the IME Pad thing was useful to so many (let's form the "we're less dumb today" club or seomthing \o/) that I told myself it would be good if I made another little tutorial, because this thing became really handy!

Aren't you tired of Clubbox/PDBox being non-unicode friendly? Meaning seeing your files downloading like this?

Yeah, I'm talking about all the <<ï-<<ëE etc...
Well it would be good if you could properly read your file names, especially if you're like me, you download thousand of files at once in the same folder and forget about them, and only decide to classify them 3 months later and you don't what the heck they're about anymore XD

Well all you've got to do is install Microsoft AppLocale Utility. The *.msi extention is totally normal.
Once it's installed on your computer, run it, and follow those steps (note: clubbox.exe is located in C:\(or whatever the letter your harddrive is set on)WINDOWS\System32\, for PDBox, it's the same except it's named pdbox28.exe):

Then on your start up program list, a new folder will have appear, and you'll see your new Clubbox link (sorry, my Window XP is in French obviously, but you don't need to be a genious to guess where it's located XD)

Then, when you will lauch it, everytime, this little popup will appear, just click OK everytime (I know this might be annoying, but usually when you're running CB/PDB, it's for a while (sometimes several days) so it's not like you're going to see it often):

And then, ô THE PRETINESS! The much clearer to my eyes *.*

Note that you have to run the program BEFORE loading the links from IE. If you choose to let IE run the program automatically, it will load Clubbox the regular way, which is, non-unicode friendly.

Hope it was helpful ^0^y

So as I fell of my chair when anthalie9 told me, I was wondering "Was I alone in this thing too???"!
I mean, did you guys EVER UNDERSTOOD what Sho was saying at the beginning of "A.RA.SHI"??? Because it's never subbed during lives, it's not written in the booklet lyrics, so I always thought... he's just saying "teki so sow" or some random words!
Like.... you know.... "Ramen" in "All or Nothing" (which is "You know what I mean" instead)

Well it's dumb, but it's most likely "Take your soul soul", which is... obvious now that I think about it m(_ _)m
engRish rules

Edit: According to lovablemaachan, it's
Take it so so.
Take it so so.
Take it, take it so so.
Take it so, wow.
Let's get on!

I'll still stick to "Take your soul soul" anyway because "OMG YES SHO-CHAN TAKE MY SOUL SOUL PLEASE" XDDDDDD As much as I stay with the "RAMEN <3" too XDDDDD

*no transition* So, today I've finally received the unexpected single... THE single XDDDD

And did you listened to the last Sho Beat? I even more failed because Sho-chan, instead of playing an Arashi song, HE PLAYED ULTRA MUSIC POWER!!!




BOY YOU JUST RAPPED MY BRAIN!!!!! TAT (from anthalie9: He's great this Sho-kun, he has the power to transmit his craziness to his fans, cool power! It's a brand new kind of Pokemon!)

This is the cut part:

Original file thanks to tenshi_angels87

And it has been so much time since I lost spent some time on youtube (brings back to the days of trying to catch up 7 years of Arashi XD... still working on it anyway XD)
And I've discovered something I had totally no clue about it, though it seems it has been around the communities (sometimes I'm blind XD), it's that "We can make it!" is actually a cover, originally by Agnes Carlsson and recently covered by Ricki-Lee (no bashing please, the two songs are really different in the end, besides, the idea to put the song on the PV is total crack XDDDDDD ZLOLOLOL @ Arashi singing English the whole time X3 and Nino's solo looks like he really is singing it @_@).
Besides it's not the first time a Swedish song is covered into JPop, mostly all of Ayumi Hamasaki songs in her album "(miss)understood" are covers of the Swedish band "Sweetbox" for example.
And what I'm the most happy about is that, as I can't put Japanese music at McD when there are customers (or my boss is going to kick me out XDDDDDD), I have a compilation of English songs related to JPop (like Utada Hikaru English album and stuff like this), so "Love is all around" will definitely end up on it!!! X333333333

Download here

I really like the oringial song, though it can't pwn "We can make it!" (SAKURAP MALKJDFLMKASDJF MLAJF MLDKSAJF LMKJ <3<3<3<3<3<3)

And as we're at it, Arashi + Dragostea din Tei = TOTAL ABSOLUTE CRACK BECAUSE IT'S SO WRONG XDDDDDDD(Ohno looks like he's totally singing it at the beginning XD)

And to finish, this is the most fabulous and most terrificly crack Arashi fanvid! GENIUS!!! Credit to arasickX2

I'm on crack, oyasumi minna!!

I love that fanvid but after I watched that, it came on while I was driving my car and my sister said, "...I can't take this song seriously anymore. All is see are Nino's eyebrows moving in the beginning."


Wait - so Arashi covered her music?
And here I was thinking it was the other way around..
Although the Swedish music thing doesn't surprise me. I saw a documentary where the guys who wrote Sayaendou for NEWS went to Japan to see their music in action.
..I almost peed my pants watching two big Swedish guys go to the Johnny Idol Shop and buy CDs XDD
23rd-Nov-2007 09:19 am (UTC)
ROOOFL sorry for that, it's true that i can't help seeing this crack PV now when I hear the song XD

Well yep, JE bought the rights and covered it.
ZOMG!!! It might have been awesome to see that! I think I heard the same thing, or was it an article in a French magazine, like "They write music for Japan".
I want to see the 2 big Swedish blocks entering an Idol shop scaring away all the Japanese fangirls XDDDD
23rd-Nov-2007 03:44 am (UTC)
WOW! I took the Agnes Carlsson mp3. I like :)
..and the fanvids! XDDDDD
thanks for brightening up my day dear ^______^
23rd-Nov-2007 09:20 am (UTC)
hehe, you're welcome ^^y
Just woke up... need to watch those again to brighten my day too XDDDD
23rd-Nov-2007 04:16 am (UTC)
I've given up on using clubbox cuz the downloads never ever start, after all the things I went through to sign up ...well actually it's pretty easy since I followed a guide XD

And OMG really? Sho was saying "take your soul soul"?! they DO own our souls then XD and yeaa... all this time I just thought he was saying "take a soso" or "take it slow slow" or something hahahah

So, HSJ... I thought at first that the song is really stupid, spelling out JUMP and whatever it stands for... but hearing it now, it's actually a really good and catchy song ToT

I've heard the Agnes ver, it's so weird hearing WCMI! sung by a female AND in enligsh ._. No biasness or bashing intended :P But I really like Arashi's version alot more.

LOL @ Cry For You PV XDDD That was hilarious and so creative, kudos to maker. I love when they're all holding their uchiwa and the best friends pose XDDD

FINALLY, okay, I think I commented on just about everything you talked about hahah
23rd-Nov-2007 09:25 am (UTC)
Eeeh? Sometimes it doesn't start but it depends of the clubbox. Did you try dowxnloading regulary from WindJP? It's one of the fastest Clubbox.

Now when i hear a.ra.shi, I'm like "YES SHO-CHAN!!!! TAKE MY SOUL SOUL" XDDDDDD
It's like Johnny warned us since their debut single XD

beware, listening too much to "Ultra Music Power" can damage your brain, you're sure to like it in the end XDDD And one thing I like about it... it's that I'm always thinking "Boys, in 10 years... you'll still be singing this song at your concerts... but Chinen won't have this high pitch voice anymore XD"

It's not called "bashing" if you don't like the song XDDD I think I would I had a heartattack if I first saw it on TV unexpected! ANYWAY WCMI PWNS X333

My favorite scenes are the "Jun + pig = Yabaix3" and Nino's guitar solo XDDDDDDDD

thank you for taking this time, I'm a sucker at long entries XDDDDD
23rd-Nov-2007 05:41 am (UTC)
OMG you are a godsend Winkychan! Now I can actually tell I'm downloading!

I know you said no bashing, but I don't really like Ricki-Lee's version, or rather, I like Arashi's version better. I remember hearing it on the radio (she's an Aussie singer) and going "OMG Arashi???"

And that Cry for you PV is one of the most distrubing things I've ever seen! But in also had me dying of laughter! XD
23rd-Nov-2007 09:28 am (UTC)
I'm glad this helped someone!!! ^0^y I was so relieved when i found this method, like "NO MORE WEIRD CHARACTERS GUESSING ANYMORE YAAAAAAAAAY \oooooooooooooo/"

Expressing your opinion normally is not called bashing XD
i would have died hearing it on the radio like this @__________x

This is quite disturbing indeed!!! But OMG that was such a genius idea XDDDDD
23rd-Nov-2007 10:46 am (UTC)
Thanks, thanks, thaaaaaaaaaaanks for all the infos and usefull links \o/

But, It's not ramen? .__. I.. i... always listen and scream ramen ._____." *kicks the chair*

23rd-Nov-2007 10:51 am (UTC)
You're welcome ^0^y

NO IT'S NOT RAMEN ROOOOFL XDDDDDDDDDD It's "you know what I mean". But I do remember asking the question to a friend the first time I heard "All or Nothing", like "Ano... is he saying "Ramen" or what???"
Ohno also once mentionned he always hear "Ramen" anyway XDDDD

Besides, I'll stay with the ramen rabu since I saw this Parody of "All or Nothing" XDDDDDDDD
23rd-Nov-2007 01:00 pm (UTC)
Hi! Winkychan!
I just want you to know what Sho is saying at the beginning of A.RA.SHI.
He raps like this:

Take it so so.
Take it so so.
Take it, take it so so.
Take it so, wow.
Let's get on!

It of course doesn't make sense at all, though, Sho has no responsibility of it, coz he didn't write this lyrics. XDD
There so many weird Engrish words in Arashi songs of the early days. But let's try not to take it seriously. You know there are even so many weird Japanese words in the old songs. XDDD
23rd-Nov-2007 01:04 pm (UTC)
Thank you for telling me! But hey, I'll stick with "Take your soul soul" because I'm so biased XDDDDDDDDDD
Besides, there's are much meaning in it, as you said, as the "Super Soul, talking more must, we are go go go go" in "Oretachi no song" XDDD
23rd-Nov-2007 06:28 pm (UTC)
You are being both helpful and funny all in one post! You go girl!
Anyways, I'm surprised that you just found out about We Can Make It being a cover. I always thought you were fan ahead of me in the fandom! I already knew this from around summer I think. Still I like We Can Make It better than Love Is All Around for many reasons (mainly cause WCMI lyrics are better and it has Sakurap).
23rd-Nov-2007 06:50 pm (UTC)
I used to make those kind of posts back when I was using my French blog, veeeeeeery long, some tips and major crack XDDDD

Yep that's weird, because I was around the fandom when WCMI was released but I totally missed this fact *sob* i saw Tess posted about it at the time but she deleted her post. Seirously, I just missed the info DX
At least it's surprises everyday XDDD AND WCMI PWNS MUCH MORE NO MATTER WHAT XDDD
25th-Nov-2007 09:25 am (UTC)
It's strange how people make a big deal out of We Can Make It. Half of JE songs are from Swedish composer.

However, Sakurap is still the best! ♥ xD And he didn't even give me the chance to think about what he rapped. I'll stick with "RAMEN <3" as well xD
25th-Nov-2007 01:32 pm (UTC)
People are overreacting over this << What's the point of "who did it first and what", you liked the song before? So I don't see why you should love it less now.

SAKURAAAAAAAAAAAP <33333333333333333333333333333
Too bad they don't sing "All or Nothing" that much in concert, I'm eager to know if it still sounds like "Ramen <3" XDDD
26th-Nov-2007 05:22 am (UTC)
Omg, I'm so late to comment, sorry~>_< But that fanvid at the end had me laughing so hard, especially when Ohno fell down!!XDD Seriously, please, please tell me there's omewhere I can download this, I need to be able to watch it over and over againX3 Okay, time for another run through...XD T%hanks, that brightened my evening:D
26th-Nov-2007 09:09 am (UTC)
AAHAHAHHA I was litening to it yesterday again and couldn't stop laughing because I was thinking of the PV XDDDD I think it's over thinking about the con performance XD

I just ripped it off in avi, Download it here so you can have some crack whenever you want X3
26th-Nov-2007 12:42 pm (UTC)
haha for your view on Sho saying "ramen" I see that you know it really means "know what I mean" but the pronunciation is not ramen, it's nah-mean (im not sure if you know american slang haha) hahahha it's ok though that sounds cute. and as for the song cover... I really dislike it when asian people take other people's songs or melodies and make it their own.. I don't know if I can forgive arashi for this one rofl, but I cant lie, I love the song rofl
26th-Nov-2007 05:05 pm (UTC)
Ooooooooh so it's american slang AHAHAHAA!!! Anywa, it will always be "Ramen <3" to me XD

I never saw covers as stealing, except at times when it's done on purpose to debute (as it's often the case in Europe) and EVERYBODY knows it's a cover, it's just to make it less risky to sell.
Here it's different to me, they choose it because it was a good song, the end (and I love it to bits <33333)
