Kamenashi Kazuya's cameo appearance in MR. BRAIN - Ratings drop!

Kamenashi Kazuya (23), was given a guest role in popular drama show MR. BRAIN episode 3 as a doctor who is responsible for killing his superior and injuring another doctor, who also happens to be his fiance. However, the viewership ratings for that episode of the drama dropped drastically as compared to the previous episodes.

As you can see...
Episode 01: 24.8%
Episode 02: 22.0%
Episode 03: 16.3%
Episode 04: 21.0%

It is also the only episode up to episode 5 that did not achieve over 20% in viewership ratings. This is rather bad news for Kazuya. Personally, i feel that this is none of his fault. I've watched the entire drama myself and that episode just happens to be more boring than the others. In fact, I thought he acted really well. (DramaWiki)

Mr Brain NG

I found this on youtube and it's really funny! Even if you don't understand Japanese, you can get the gist of it. Basically they show the OK scene first, then the NG.

My favourite part is the one where Mizushima Hiro trips and falls, it must really hurt to fall flat like that! Can see that even the camermen are laughing so hard. And Kimura Takuya didn't get any NG scenes at all! Which shows that he's either a true professional or they didn't show any... I wonder which one it is?

You can watch the video on youtube here.

Mizushima Hiro going on long-term leave to take care of wife Ayaka Iida

It has been announced that Mizushima Hiro (25) will be going on long-term leave to take care of his wife Ayaka Iida (22). Ayaka Iida is suffering from Grave's disease, and has previously said that she will put her career on hold after 2009. Mizushima Hiro, who has been married to Ayaka since February 22nd this year, says that he wants to take care of Ayaka during this difficult period.

This alays previous fears that their marriage will not last because of their young age. The couple dated for only 8months before getting engaged. Mizushima Hiro's mother said that she was worried as to how long their marriage could last but has since come to respect their relationship and is now helping to care for Ayaka. (Entame)

I feel so dull and wasted.
It's time to wipe away the dust on my schoolbooks,
stand up,
shut down (the computer),
and get some ass-kicking.

give me a symbol of your peace

It's not chains and locks that keep people shut in, it's the looks and glares that others give you. Why can't we just, for once, treat one another the same way? Why do we have to ostracise certain individuals? Nowadays, people don't talk to you for all sorts of reasons, it's no longer because you're nerdy or have bad breath, it's because you don't follow a certain "formulas" to become cool, well-liked and popular.

I'm so tired of trying to change myself, upgrade my image and improve my attitude when none of it seem to work. Rattling this out might make me seem berserk. I don't understand why people can't accept others, simply because they weren't hanging out with the coolest gang to start with. Everyone deserves a chance, don't they?

I'm scared to go out of my house. Scared to go out alone because others will see me as a loser for hanging out alone; scared to go out with my parents because others will think they're the only people in my life. My skin has been bleached white by my long stay indoors. It's only been about two weeks, but every day I can feel the pent-up fustration building up inside me as I waste my life away. I don't have the drive to do anyting, be it exercise or study. I sit in front of the television, my eyes wide open but not taking in anything that's happening around me. On the internet, I track everyone's daily activites, wondering why I'm excluded, why no one called me to ask me along

I wonder if I should take solace in books, just like the many stories you hear, the ostracised genius studying hard to get back at everyone else. But it's not so easy. Thinking of how school will have to reopen next year, how I'll have to face everyone again, it's a pain. Imagine going home alone, having no partner durng gym, staying in class alone under the pretence of wanting to lose weight, the thought alone is enough for me to wonder if I should just give up and quit.

Yes, I am angry. But the anger I have cannot compare to the grief, despain and confusion, all mixed together in an inexplicable tangle inside my chest. It's been one year since we've been in the same class and I can safely say I have no close friends. Sure, there are decent people that I talk to, but they have their own closer friends who want nothing to do with me.

I don't want to have to go through another year.

Letter to self

Dear xxx,

Honey, you know your exam is tomorrow, don't you. Then why aren't you taking yourself seriously? Don't tell me you're demoralised because from today's paper because I know you don't feel any of that crap. There's a whole tonne of revision for you to do ecause I know you haven't started. You can do well if you want to. Remember in the first test, you scored an A1 when half the cohort failed? And then in the second test, you scored an F9 when everyone proclaimed that it was the easiest Maths test they had ever sat for. You really need to pull up your socks. Yes, I'm nagging and I've said this a few million times before, but it's true. You're just letting your talent go to waste like this. You think I've said enough? Well, I can tell you I jolly well haven't. Stop letting your life drift by. You have the brains to go to the top junior college in the country but if you continue like this, you'll probably go to a technical institution. You entered your secondary school as one of the top students (and you thought you underperformed then!), and now you're hanging out with the hooligans in the worst class, the class that the teachers can't control and dread to teach, the class where the students sleep in front of the teacher or cuss loudly at them, the class that has double the L1R5 as the other classes. The class that makes up the 10% or so of the school cohort that doesn't make it to any junior college. Think about it. If you choose to get your act together, I'm behind you all the way. If you choose to continue like this, good luck. You'll need it.

Yours sincerely,
kick me.
