What the heck happened to Lamassu anyway?! He never visits anymore... Anyway, so lucky! I feel like I should start dancing ahah. It probably doesn't hurt that he can already speak alot of Japanese.

also, eku how'd you find out about this? I don't imagine you're watching Himitsu no Arashi-chan every week :xd:

That's amazing! I feel so proud... mostly for Lamassu, of course, but also a little for the rest of us. Just by doing dance covers, he was invited to a TV show in Japan. We can spread the word of Perfume where we live and Perfume will realize just how large their international fan base is!

Hm he should contact me to recover the password.
But I'm sure that's not why he is not around here because he actually PMed me replying to my question about that Arashi show.

didn't you guys noticed that they are just laughing at him? for japanese this is such a great comedy. he will be 'famous' as the funny guy who does Perfume dance seriously and tries to do it just like them. it seems awesome that he was 'spotted' but lets get real, were they hunting for talents or for laughs for the variety show? if this is going to advance it will be only taken further and more and more ppl will have a laugh at him. I actually pity him

well alot of japanese also do Perfume dances, and some arent that good compared to him
the thing that stands out is that Perfume reached to another country, a continent even
so people will be amazed over it

I kind of get what ruruke is saying. But even though there doing it for comedy or cause they like what Lamassu does, doesn't main they weren't impressed. ok yea they might have made fun of him a little but. they still found it to be great and were kinda impressed. Also i think they were amazed that perfume and other j-music is hitting outside japan like nitori1134 "the thing that stands out is that Perfume reached another country"

I saw the clip and kind of felt the same way. I'm not sure if thay are laughting at him or with him.
I have to say though that he IS good with all the dance moves.


They did laugh; but only because they didn't expect that a person that size would be able to dance like Perfume or Arashi. They were amused at it, but didn't really think of it as a joke, if you put at it logically. They (the hosts and guests) agreed that Lamassu had great rhythm to catch the dance beats too.

Regarding on contacting him again, I don't have a clue. But his Japanese's quite good too!

I never knew this existed XD

Okaayy UPDATES:

About my password, The reason I was on hiatus for long is because every time I tried to sign in my password wasn't working, and then I tried recovering it and it didn't work --; so I couldn't be bothered with it XD .

It wasn't 'till Eku PM'd me ( notified through email ) that I decided to give it one more go , and it FINALLLYYY worked !~ haha .

okay now about the TV show , Mmm I didn't see it as them making fun of me but more of them being surprised at what I could do as well as laughing with me (as I was joking around when I was talking), if you can understand Japanese or even a little of it, you would've get the drift on what was going on .

I was contacted again by the production and said that they want me to come to Japan , I'll quote the emails .

Arashi TV Program team is having discussion on 17th January 2009 about TV show plan.
In there, director and TV Producer would like to have an idea what is the best plan for you to come to Japan.

For this, I am sending you questionnaire below.
Hope you can send me back with your answer.

1. Which dance is your the most favorite one at the moment?
2. Which artist (Star) is the most favorite now?
3. Which Japanese star you like the most?
4. Do you have any particular place in Japan you would love to visit?
5. How long does it take to film one clip of a song?
6. How long does it take to learn the dance for each songs?

Thanks for your time.

Hey Yuko!~
Thanks for the call last night
I'm fine thank you =D .

1. Which dance is your the most favorite one at the moment?
I have a few that I really like at the moment,
- PERFUME , Dream Fighter .( I'm a big fan of PERFUME !!!!!! haha )
- DBSK , Mirotic

2. Which artist (Star) is the most favorite now?
Do you mean non-Japanese? Hrrmm , I have to say BIG BANG and WONDER GIRLS .

3. Which Japanese star you like the most?
This is such a hard question! I have many favorite Japanese stars !
But besides the obvious, PERFUME . I would have to say Massu! from NewS, Maki Horikita, Haruma Miura, Inoue Mao, Erika Toda , YUI, Ayaka, CAPSULE, AKB48, BRIGHT okay too many sorry T______T; But I can go on and on haha .

4. Do you have any particular place in Japan you would love to visit?
I've always wanted to visit Tokyo and Akihabara ! ( AKB48!!!! ) haha .
I've also always wanted to street perform in Japan as well.
If I could, I'd actually love to see all of Japan, from the country side to the busy Cities. Japan has a rich history and seems like there are many beautiful places to visit!~

5. How long does it take to film one clip of a song?
It usually takes 30mins to an hour, I like to play around with lighting or try new things with my clips.

6. How long does it take to learn the dance for each songs?
It really depends on the dance itself, usually it'll take a couple of days for me to learn a dance. I'm a quick learner, so I can pick up dance moves easily.

7. Who is your favorite member in Arashi?
NINOOOMMIIIYYYYAAAAAAA-KUNNNN !!!!!
He seems like a really cool person! and very nice as well.
I'm the only one out of my friends who likes him the most, My other friends love JUN .

If you have any more questions, I'd be happy to help ,
sorry if I answered some too long --; .

LAMAHdesu .
