Hooray! I did it.

current mood: hot

However, it's already tomorrow......

Our recording has officially begun. Something is weird, I'm so excited.....what the heck?! (laugh)

Every time I start out with a frown so I have to wonder, is this me??

Anyway, all the members are unanimously going all out!! Surely we'll have to, in order to get down this road without everything at the end being full of mistakes. (laugh)

take 1, take 2, take 3, take4, take5, Oh Yeah!

I want to mention that today, ( the 27th ) Tokyo had it's first snow of the season come down!!!!

I know for sure because HPP guitar player Mar e-mailed me an amazing shot of it falling outside. ( laugh )

Wow~ it's beautiful to see~ ( heart )

Of course, having a white world outside while you're inside the studio is a fine thing. Cold outside, but hot inside.....Yeah. (laugh)

Well, the main vocal tracks will be recorded in April. And yet, it turns out that that will be when the tour really heats up. I'll be doing both at the same time. So, I'll have to watch my health and keep my mind focused or I'll be shedding tears before it's over!

For some time now, I've been in love with my Szechuan noodles, but should I start using some self control?.......since it's so spicy. ( laugh )

In regard to my throat and singing voice, maybe I should exclude it from my menu.

The news~

Tomorrow we'll finish working on our pre-professional recording. And, on the 28th, driven by my strong feelings, the recording starts!

As it begins.....I still fear that everyday life. (laugh)

As the recording pattern progresses, I want to post photo's throughout. From start to finish!

I want to show such things as the members being cute and how difficult it can be in the recording studio, right?! (laugh)

But, you'll have to wait!!

The tour is ahead and we're quickly trying to arrange it so that the new song will be ready when the schedule begins. To tell the truth, I'm wanting to do a live show very soon.....really.

After this, the live concerts will increase a lot.

Before long, it appears I have an announcement to publish. (laugh)

At any rate, let's get the HPP members fired up for the recording! Okay!

Bone chilling cold.

current mood: crunk

Last week, construction work started out in front of my house. All the noise they made as they started tearing things up contributed to my lack of sleep. I have to get my sleep and going out makes me nervous.

I think it's colder than usual for this time of year. It makes my head feel dazed and my body feel sluggish. I wonder if I'll burn up the rest of my reserve strength soon?.....

Next week we're scheduled to start recording. I have to submit for the second round, so the tension's likely to go up.........

I guess things will get heated up, if the past is any indication of what lies ahead.

Sometimes there's an unexpected fit of anger and you cry and shout. That's because there are so many things working against you when you're trying to record.

But, if I recall correctly, a person has to be ready because fine things also unexpectedly happen. Lately, I've toughened up. (laugh)

I think it kind of helps me to stay more positive. I don't want to be praising myself, so I'm sorry for the low tone this conversation has taken. I beg your pardon. (laugh)

The other day I went snowboarding.

There was fine weather in the white world and in my ignorance I slipped at breakneck speed in the dry conditions. Have you ever had an experience where you think you've hit the limit?.....

On such occasions does life come to an end?...... (?)

It's easy to be forgetful, but it's wonderful if you remember to smile daily. Tomorrow, I'll also try to do my best.

Everyone also, don't forget your smile, OK? (heart)

What have I been doing?

The weather has been cold. But, I was able to do something hot to be refreshed and restore my peace of mind.

Mu ha ha ha.......Do you know what it was? I got to go snowboarding which is my favorite pastime!

On top of that, the weather there was great. Warm and sunny. It was awesome! Oh yeah.

However, the next day my body was really sore. (laugh)

It couldn't come at a worse time, because next week I have to give in and start recording.

This time will there be some sort of miracle?.....

Personally, it's my true nature to dislike grow accustomed to it, but it's such an empty feeling.

Although, I do fight to win in the recording booth. (laugh)

Once that is finished, we're still not touring~~!!

I'm looking forward to eating delicious foods and going to the hot spring.

I feel when I take care of myself my spirit is lifted up. The tension rises!


It looks like Anza got my Valentine present. (laugh)

Happy Valentine!!!

It's chocolate Day. (heart)

Did everyone receive some chocolate? Or, did you give some to someone?

The HPP members get some every year without fail!! From me and our manager. (laugh)

By the way, I also received some chocolate from the members. (laugh) That made me happy.

I'm hoping some day to do a live Show on Valentine's Day so I can hand out some chocolate as a present. That would be nice, don't you think?

Anyway, we're recording a tune for a soon to be released record and I want to put my love into the singing. (double heart)

I'm doing my best~!!

The pic is the HPP mascot and a present of chocolate. (laugh)

Happy Valentine's (heart)

current mood: loved

Hey there, today is chocolate day. (laugh)

This is the one day of the year that chocolate sells extremely well. (laugh)

Every year my Dad and I give some to the HPP members and the staff.

Now days, it's the girl who attempts to exchange with her friend. Of course, the boy getting the chocolate is a happy person, right? (laugh)

Furthermore, a band member and the manager are both parents, that makes it an extra special day for them, right? (laugh)

I've yet to get some chocolate to share with everyone at a live show, I think it would be a nice thing to give to someone, a live concert.......I may try it.

Well, right now I have some chocolate to eat. (laugh)


The pic is from Hitomi Aizawa's Blog. I'm sure it's the ski slope that Anza wants to go to to do some snowboarding. I think it's a good pic, so I'm posting it for Anza for Valentine's Day. Hopefully, she'll get to go there at least one more time before spring gets here.

Also, I knew the manager of HPP was a momma, but I didn't know one of the guys was a dad. Now I'm wondering which one it is. (laugh)

No go~

Here's the latest thing I've gotten into........Nothing. (laugh)

What do I need to break free from?!!! Me!!! (laugh)

I still want to go snowboarding among other things. Like a trip to Guam or Sunlight Edo Village. It seems my hopes are dashed everyday. Is it useless to wish?

You would think that going to the Gym would be easy, but the time slips away from me......I haven't been able to go for an aroma massage therapy either.

The only enjoyment I get is staying up late at night and that's it. (laugh)

When I finish work, I stick my feet into the foot warmer, watch the TV, eat a bunch of sweets, then go to bed. That's the pattern for now, but it's still pleasant, right?

When you're working on a tune, you try to get into it and make it worthy to be listened to, and at the same time, you turn into one dull person, don't you think? (laugh)

That's why my foot warmer has become my guilty pleasure!!

Say~ we'll start recording very soon.

We're headed down the home stretch!!


I think Anza needs a hug!

Here's the new HPP image photo from Myspace. Hopefully, this is just a taste of what's to come.

Make over~

current mood: artistic

Yesterday was the artist photograph shoot for HPP. Because our drummer Batch has become an official member of the band, we took NEW photo's with all 5 musicians.

From the morning, we had we had photo shoots at 2 different locations and then we took some shots in the studio.

It was great that the weather was excellent, however there was a strong wind that made our attempts to get good pics difficult.

My dress had a see-through blouse similar to a camisole and I had to constantly change poses because of the conditions. (laugh)

It was those conditions that made the outside photo shooting difficult. (laugh)

The other members also did a good job hanging in there! Thanks to all of them, we were able to take some pretty amazing photographs..

Hey! You'll have to wait till they're ready to be released.

And now, we're finally recording. We're still busy with tune arrangements. There are many composition alterations that we're trying and it's keeping us in the studio.

Once in a while, sleepiness attacks. (laugh)

When you spend a long time in the studio, you get to the point where screaming into a machine just makes you numb.

However, it's worth it to make wonderful new tunes..

Well, there's still more to come, but we'll have to fight to the finish.........(laugh)


Anza in a see-through blouse? That works for me. lol

Passing the musical baton!

Hello. I've used up all my strength and I've been unsteady on my feet all day. Whew! (laugh)

Yesterday at Shibuya AX the debut Live Show for Vitamin-Q finished safely! Well, I began by trying to somehow grasp what's going on, and when I finally started getting comfortable and into the groove, it ended. (laugh)

Still it was really fun~

The HPP live show doesn't have an MC. So, there was a lot of tension for me as I tried greeting people as the MC. (laugh)

Anyhow, it was terrific to spend such a splendid time with everyone and it made me very happy. (heart) I can't wait for the day we can do it again!!

The band members were truly wonderful, along with the chorus girls Shanti and Aisa. Not to mention everyone on the staff. To everyone who came out to see us, Thank you very much!!

And I like Onishi the girl who did the opening act for us. She did a great job!!

It appears likely that I'll be doing a 20th year Event with wonderful musical performances and lovely songs to entertain the fans. You're looking forward to it, right? (heart)

The photographs are from the rehearsal studio and us girls before the Live performance.!


I couldn't translate the entire name of the girl who did the opening act, so Onishi is all I wrote down.

Do love the pics. Especially the one before the concert with Anza and the "Do-Wop" girls. lol

Hey! it's Anza (star)

OK. Is everyone doing alright? I hope so.

I'm going to surprise you with an announcement. From today on, HEAD PHONES PRESIDENT will consist of 5 members!!!!

For a long time, he was in the role of a support drummer, and now he's a new band mate for HPP.

Batch, as a band member you now get to face HPP's large up hill battle. Everyone, as he takes his place in the new line-up, please treat him well~!!!

Right away, HPP is getting into pre-professional mode.

As a result, a new companion and a 5 man band make it a wonderful and creative team.


Congratulations to Batch!

current mood: exanimate

Buddhism is broken it seems, do you ever think that? In my case, I tend to always be broken, at least that's how the picture looks to me. (laugh)

When your heart breaks, it turns out you're a 0 (zero) I guess, is it?.....

It's a certainty that you'll be exhausted in the end, so for some reason 0=Zero whether you want it to or not. (?)

But still, nothing = what? That's a lot to think about and you just might be walking into a mine field. The situation can become critical, right?

People and their emotions about the things that happen to them are something to think about. They get troubled or their feelings hurt. They're made to suffer, to cry, to laugh, and to get angry.......and then the cycle repeats and never ends.....Hey! Like me. I'm busy, really. (laugh)

The rain has finally stopped, hasn't it? Yesterday and today the cold weather has become severe, don't you think?

Of course, as for Cairo, he has a style that sticks out. (laugh)


I did my best to translate this, although I couldn't quite grasp her meaning in some parts of the entry.

Recently, my physical condition has begun to break down little by little. I had a pain in my neck and head that hurt something fierce.

I was looking forward to doing some snowboarding...... but I couldn't go because of the pain.

With that being said, I have to prepare for HPP's pre-professional recording. There's also Vitamin-Q rehearsals for the Shibuya AX Show on Feb. 3rd. And, photography for both of those projects.........will begin shortly.

It's not a good thing if your memory gives out on you. There are still so many things I have to keep straight, it feels like my head is on the verge of exploding. (laugh)

You want to live every day in some sort of comfort, and I wish it was always easy, right? The likelihood that things will get better for me any time soon is a bit iffy. I'm looking for a sign that things will turning around, sound good?

By the way, on Valentine's Day, it's the girl who buys chocolate for the boy she's sweet on. But, do you think it's also proper for the the boy to get candy for the girl?

Usually, on White Day (March 14th), the boy will return to the girl with candy. Or, marshmallow cookies? But, sometimes chocolate is also good, don't you think? (laugh)

There's a story behind this I haven't told you yet. (laugh)

The Lotte Co's chocolate pie is delicious. Yes!


The "something fierce" remark in the first line is more of a country saying. It sounded about right so I used it here.
