I may also post here some of the hundreds of photos we have from the whole weekend.

That would be great, for those of us who are so far away from San Francisco that it might as well be another planet!  The more pics the better   8)

Also...  if anyone else took HD video and wants to share it on YouTube and then here, we would all be grateful!  Especially showing Marin better   :P   :wub:

Marin is definitely my fave (I was laughing so hard watching the Q/A stuff and seeing how little she seemed to care about it all), but Okamari is right up there too, largely thanks to her blog (thanks again, Estrea!). She is just so goofy and endearing, and I love how she makes little asides to herself in her entries.

But like I said, I like them all. Give us a real album soon, UF!

And one more...  not a performance, but an impromptu interlude...  Did anyone see the English language test at (I think) last year's H!P summer tour?  And you remember where Reina-chan ranked in that??   :P

Well...  here she gets another try at...  Engrish!!   So cute!!

I like it! Certainly more in line with what I was hoping for from the band, rather than a bunch of covers from Up-Front artists. It was also nice to see Marin playing some lead guitar; usually in concerts it seems she generally keeps the rhythm down while Yuki handles most leads.

Hopefully Nee-san can keep practising composition and supply Lovendor with original songs (probably a pipe dream, I know). I mean, I know it's Reina's group and all, but there are other Japanese bands where the "leader" is not always the main songwriter (or singer).

^Just FYI, Nee-san has been writing songs and getting Okamari to sing them for her (since she admits she can't sing well and needed to hear how it sounded, so okamari became her....test singer? Is there a term for it?). It might be some time before the agency approves them for release as Lovendor songs though? But it's a good start :)

Guniea pig? :lol:

Thanks for the info, though! It is definitely a good start; hopefully Up-Front won't just sweep Nee-san's efforts under the rug.

Radio rip of Bukiyo, which I then transcribed the lyrics for by ear (therefore probably not 100% accurate, but I tried):

二十歳を過ぎたって まだ大人としての
自覚とかなかったけど
気が付けば周りの 友達はみんなも
一人前の姿になってた
 
常識ないとか バカだとか
世間知らずは 嫌だし
 
不器用なままだって ただし方探す
現実から目を 逸れしたくなる
でも何も知らない 大人じゃいられない
知ることから始める学ぶこと ないはず
 
二十歳を過ぎてから 当たり前のように
大人として扱いはね
選挙のはがきとか 届くようになっても
塾のままの心じゃ 戸惑う
 
何もわからない 子供だと
思われるのも 癪だし
 
不器用のままずっと もがいてあがいてる
なんだか周りに 惑わされてる
でも何もできない 大人になりたくない
迷いの中ねリアルな思いが 揺れてる
 
不器用なままだって ただし方探す
現実から目を 逸れしたくなる
成長する猶予はどれくらいあるのか
迷い中も大人になって行く
不器用を何に変わろとしてる
I’m growing up
I’m growing up

~*~*~*~*~*~

Translation:

Even after I’ve turned 20
I still don’t feel like an adult
When I finally look around me
My friends have all grown up splendidly
 
Being told that I lack common sense
Or that I’m dumb
I hate being ignorant of the ways of the world
 
I try my hardest to find the right path even though I’m awkward
I really want to turn my eyes away from reality
But I can’t be an adult without knowing anything
You can’t start learning from only what you already know
 
After I turned 20
I get treated as if I’m already an adult
I start receiving voting slips
But I’m still mentally stuck in cram school
And it bewilders me
 
To be thought of as a child who understands nothing
That’s really offensive too
 
I struggle hard while still being awkward
I feel confused by the world around me
But I can’t do anything
And I don’t want to grow up
My true feelings tremble in the midst of my confusion
 
I try my hardest to find the right path even though I’m awkward
I really want to turn my eyes away from reality
How much time do I have left to grow up?
I will grow older even while I’m still confused
What can I turn my awkwardness into?
I’m growing up
I’m growing up

=========================================

How much do I love this song? Probably too much. I've been looping it for days. It's a coming-of-age song written for young adults who are new to this whole adult business. Perfect for Lovendor really, who are all in their early 20s. It spoke to my heart, because I know how it feels to grow older and not really grow up yet but how much time do I have left? Damn. This is really a great song.
