2014 me is way happier at seeing Miyake Ken, and possibly Mabo, laughing at Maru being a dumb ass.
How times change~
2009 me just peed herself at Maru/MatsuJun here. 2014 me doesn’t care so much anymore. XD
Harrison Ford practicing with a whip on the backlot for Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Be still, beating heart ;^;
And the second of Tey's requests for the palette meme: a velociraptor dressed as an old lady, complete with messily applied makeup.
These are my friends; I love them so.
…but the fact that this is the second thing I came up with probably says more. XD
SHE’S GLORIOUS 8D
;^; I love her.
Her name is Babs.
She is fabulous. <3
More palette meme! First of two for my dear Tey, who wanted female Nightwing in #1. (It seems #1 is popular for DC ladies this go!)
Just straight knee-dropping thugs left and right.
:D Fantastico! Zo-chan did a meme and opened for requests and female Nightwing is literally the first thing that popped into my head which probably says all sorts of things about me. 8|a
*0* She’s beautiful~
…I might need copious amounts of beer to get through the Drama SP. I may have to “live blog” it too for my own sanity.
Because cancer is not funny.
But Hina’s dramatic acting is and I think I may have already ruptured my spleen.
Hour 3: Conclusion and Recap
And that’s actually it for Hour 3! Once all the intros are done and things are set in motion, there are only 3 or 4 tasks to an hour. Hour 3 ends with an introduction of what comes with Hour 4: The Drama SP.
…help me, I don’t think I’ll survive rewatching that.
But recap: Maya Miki’s task, Hatori’s Darts, Ishikawa Ryo’s task.
Deeply Saddened Count: 3. There were actual tears during the two tasks.
Hour 3: Check in with Tokumitsu-san
I don’t intend to cap every instance of this, since it usually happens twice an hour during 24 - but I did want to post this for one reason:
As mentioned before, you can fax in drawings and words of support during 24 (this particular break was showing him some of the drawings that had come in).
…so. Tokio fans? Get to working on your fax skills.
Hour 3: Ishikawa Ryo’s Task
Pro Golfer Ishikawa Ryo also had a task - I managed not to take a single cap of him. But basically he was in Miami at a tournament when the earthquake/tsunami hit Japan that year. He went to a school in the Miyagi prefecture and you’ll forgive me, again, for being light on details. He went and spoke with a class and seemed super nervous before hand, but played with them and gave them quick golf lessons.
Including to a young boy who had lost his father (hence that first cap). They filmed him at home eating with his mom and sibling and the mom started crying a bit. He was wrapped in a jacket and was fighting the urge but ended up crying too.
It may not be obvious in the caps, but Baru was sniffling in the wrap up segment.
Obligatory YokoHina for spurious. X3
Hour 3: Hatori’s Darts
Or, Emotional Whiplash. It’s now 24 Host Hatori Shinichi’s turn to go around finding people who embody that year’s theme (essentially, the power of one). Mostly though he finds adorable old people, like a 90 year old woman picking cucumbers, some 70 year old women learning hula dance, and a group of workers who give him giant shrimp and beer.
Hour 3: Maya Miki’s Task
And here’s where it starts to get truly hard.
In the first two hours there were moments that were hard to sit through - the family losing their father during the introduction of Tokumitsu-san as the runner, the scenes of whole towns flattened and wiped out, etc. But for the most part the stories have been of a more lighter nature - festival, overcoming adversity, darts.
You may have noticed the intro to this task showed a small stand amongst a flattened block. The family there sells flowers and continue to do so after the tsunami so that people in the area can get flowers to take to where their loved ones died. Maya Miki meets the florists and then meets the families that stop by: including a woman who had lost her mother, a mother who had lost her 6 year old daughter, and an old man who had lost his wife. She goes with these individuals as they place the flowers and pay respects.
