Pic Spam: A Group of Creeps

Sayashi Riho, Suzuki Kanon-561158I think it’s time.

I used to pic spam whenever I didn’t have much to post about, but in this case, I just can’t seem to finish posts at the rate that I used to. I blame the humidity. And to a lesser extent, laziness.

Also, there is an alarmingly large back-log of hilarity on the computer and Bro and I constantly caption pictures when we look through them.

His instant follow-up to each one (once we stop laughing) is: “Why don’t you do a pic spam?”

He’s right. Pic spam is happening!

(Very Temporary) Hiatus >_<

I don’t mean to go on about it, but it’s still sinking in.

…I’m going to New York.
To see Morning Musume.


Oh. My. Word.


In the interest of saving money, Bro and I have decided to switch internet providers and this means I will be without the net for a few weeks. I know I haven’t been posting as it is (and I apologize), but I still wanted to explain. I will be back very soon, hopefully with some inspiration. Let me link shamelessly to my last post from the ever awesome Sora to Kujira on Shige’s graduation. Check out the whole site while you’re at it. 😉

Be back as soon as I can. ^_^

PS: Appropriately enough, the previous post, in which I first found out I would see Momusu live, is my 200th post. In typical Isilie fashion, I totally missed that. Just like I miss every single anniversary on this blog.

May as well keep the tradition going, eh?


Giving Tsunku his Due

5564-xzbs1g3z1dBy now everybody in this fandom is aware that Tsunku has cancer and is undergoing treatment. Honestly, other than to use him as an ill-advised scape-goat (a bit of blogging laziness on my part), I don’t really think about Tsunku. And now I am.

When I heard about his illness, it was another one of those moments in my life where I simply couldn’t believe it. I think I’ll always feel about cancer the way I felt about it when it affected my life for the first time: it’s unreal.

So what happens if Tsunku isn’t able to continue H!P? I keep thinking about this and about whether or not he’ll lose his voice.

And the fact that he’s got two young children, who probably have no idea what this means.

*Disclaimer: This is a bit stream-of-consciousness. Don’t know what I was going for here, just wanted to talk about it.

In Which Isilie Returns #3


Pic that has nothing to do with anything: There is just never a bad time for Zukkiri! (from wondermusume@ tumblr)

In these entries, I will write about things that I’m thinking about that don’t require a full post. I will try to make it more interesting with pics, caps, gifs and by limiting myself to 100 words or less for each thought.It’s called a ‘return’ because I frequently seem to go too long without posting, mainly because my thoughts don’t always require a full post. Well – NO MORE!

Seriously. I suck at posting more. I do have an excuse though.
My hours are all over the place right now.
Forgive me? ^_^’

Shameless Plug Post!

I have been accepted…I mean, Abraham is allowing me to…I mean…I asked and he said-

Ok I have no idea how to phrase it, but I’M CONTRIBUTING TO SORA TO KUJIRA NOW!!!!!!!zukkidancetumblr

It’s a site with J-pop news, general Japanese entertainment, reviews, editorials and it’s awesome. Check it out. Unlike here, there are new posts every day.

I am incredibly nervous and happy about this. I’ve only posted one thing so far and I have no idea if it’s any good or not, but I’m still very excited and this will hopefully motivate me to post about more recent things and not so sporadically. I really hate that I don’t post as much as I used to.

I’ve contributed.

I’m a contributer!

I’ll try and be better everybody!


Enjoy the Zukki dance (from tumblr as always)!
