Today's photos 471 ~ 484

No. 471: The first part of our stay in L.A.

The photos that I haven't had time to publish during the first part of the journey, I will post them now!

First arrival at the studio. I'm greeted by "Prince".
Then a smile because I'm going to sing again and again! Motivation to the top!

No. 472: Which vocal ...

... approach can I do ? I'm in full reflexion.
But ultimately, we made several attempts, and one time were like, "that's it! this is it! ! ! ! !" But in the end we still couldn't find the right one!
Afterward, we concentrated until we were satisfied with the result.
Don't deviate.

No. 473: "Fashion check"

The military jacket, found at Fred Segal. I wanted to wear a loose-fitting coat, so I took it from a male mannequin.
Also I love the slogan on the back ♪
The scarf is from McQueen.
This isn't the silk one that I often wear these days. It's the one that really helps fight against the cold! lol
I have pink and white.
The dress shirt is from Tsubi ... I think? lol
The shoes are Balenciaga.

No. 474: Next ...

I'm thinking about the direction that to give the arrangements.
This is a moment that I love, but my head doesn't work with the same efficiency as usual.
But I don't give up!

No. 475: The Promise

That is what is up your alley! lol
The days when I succeed to sing like I want, I strike the pose !
This is a studio. We believe that it really hides a sound monster.
That's my impression.

No. 476: No error ...

... it isn't easy to walk with, but without error, they are too cute! ! ! ! !
Huhuhu (*_*)

No. 477: So...

It's the first stay in LA, and the last day of recording.
Today I'm full of energy, too! ♪ cute, right? ♪
Ah, of course, even if the work begins, I'm simply saying that I must not forget to indulge myself ... right?

No. 478: "Fashion Check"

It seems that you like this item so I will try to persevere!
This tweed jacket with some small tape on its sleeves that is too cute is a "Chaneko" (Chanel).
The mid-leg black trousers... it's "Mom" who gave it to me, of course it's a PJ! (*_*)
It's very easy to wear! ! !
The shoe is Balenciaga. Yellow "gladiators"

No. 479: Nobita-kun ...

played on the piano.
It's irresistible !!!
It's beautiful !!

No. 480: Too beautiful

I don't want to lose face at the piano live. I sing with all my depth. I put in all that's in my heart.

No. 481: Regardless ...

There have been off-days. Days when it didn't work.
I was so disappointed, so disappointed.
I returned to the hotel and cried all I could.

No. 482: In my dressing room

as you can see, always discreetly the Record Plant family drops off messages for me, warm messages and chocolate that I love.
Thank you very much.

No. 483: On the plane

That's how I've prepared! ♪
And then through this master plan, you discover during the travel, Chon-chan's room!

No. 484: The egg's shell was broken

From the outside, Chon-chan is in a place that looks like the inside of an egg.
Here, I'm writing my posts.
It's so spacious that my feet don't reach the footrest.
It's also true that I changed my style and hair color.

No. 458 20-02-2009 21h21

to tell you something very important.

The music that accompanies the Panasonic CM is the title of the main song of the album this year.


When you have time, go read the lyrics.

This is a song I wrote, under the skies of Hawaii, thinking very deeply in my heart on all that I shared with you, with certitude, members of the "TA".

This is a song where we can go together to the next stage.
This is a song where you can walk.

That's all ! (*^_^*)

No.459 20/02/2009 21h22

To the next stage, which begins to move,
we continue to walk together.

This only road never ends,
we continue to illuminate it.

How will we take
this fresh start that,
once again, presents itself here?

While looking at the sky, my face was lit by a gentle smile
I heard "Don't be afraid, everything is fine"
While looking at the sky, a small tear flowed
Even the scars left by the past seem sweet today.

The sign tells us that a vibrant future, makes our looks meet each other.

Our hearts are beating so strong,
What will they choose and represent?
What is the map that will take shape?

If you feel the wind, grip our hands strongly
Because we don't need many words to understand each other
If you feel the wind, begin to walk with conviction and with the same speed we will see the same landscape

I can't fly today, either.

In Los Angeles, Stan-chan and Luis await my arrival with the rest of the crew...

The crew is composed of the best technicians in New York or L.A
Such work... it's obvious that I want to do iiiit !

Whatever happens tomorrow, if I don't leave Japan, it's "time out."

Game over.

I'm motivated to go to Narita even if I don't have a ticket yet!

Do you want to join me in waiting for a cancellation? lol

No. 456 20-02-2009 12:48

I almost forgot! On the Panasonic website, as I told you some time ago, you may see the ads that I share with Pecoburi-sama and the dancers!

If there are those among you who have not seen it yet, I urge you to see it!

No. 457 20-02-2009 20h49

...I'll go.

I'll go, but...

... my ticket ...

I got iiiiiiiiiiit ! ! ! ! !

Finally. To be more precise, of course it wasn't me who bought it.

It was in fact our Prince, who showed how imperative it was that I travel tomorrow.

And if I tell you how I'm going to go to L.A ...

First, I go from Narita to San Francisco.

And then from San Francisco to L.A we rented a private jet.

You know, I'm writing this with a nonchalant attitude...

but for many reasons, it's increeeeedible!

So I'll go?

I'll goooo ! ! ! ! !

I took a bath with Cocoa... and I can't remember anything else! lol

The only thing I know is that I have a somewhat limited PV

About that, remember that the director is Shimoko...

Enough to understand why the PV is limited, isn't it? lol

Today I'm busy shooting for covers and magazines.

Hmmm, I think I survive with my will! lol

Aaaah, my computer is still full of photos that could be published in "Today's Photos". I'll try to find time to see to it.

Yea, tomorrow, for me it's the computer...!

Time is short.

Tomorrow may not be the moment to use the computer.

postponed to after tomorrow ....

Byyyye !

So, then,
No. 454 20-02-2009 01h49

For the 10th year... uh no, it's already the 11th...

... I'll confront a crazy schedule that must be the three busiest ones!
I think I'm going to turn into a wax statue...

It was in this atmosphere that we completed the final audition selection of the dancers for this year's tour.

The women's team consists of four people, and they haven't changed: All my "big sisters" are there.

The team of men, though, will be composed of Gomi, Shuchi, Suba-sama, Maro-chan, Zin-san as well as three new members.

Concerning these three, I will present them to you later.

Anyway, of course the first test is to know if the person is able to dance or not, but I decided to choose those who feared nothing in the result, those who gave their all having no regrets, who put aside their pride with a total commitment to the body and soul, and, in short, those who have demonstrated full commitment.

Yes, that's right.

It's "passion."

With a new wind blowing on her, with a new power, Ayu, and her team, will go to meet all of Japan! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

I promise you that the scene this year will be exceptional. No, seriously!

You can really believe me! ! ! ! ! ! !

And you must wonder when I will do "it" with the computer ?

When I make a good break in my schedule.

When? Impossible to say.

Indeed, nothing is sure today.


Well, I do what I....?

At this moment ...
No. 446 14-02-2009 23h17

while I'm on my computer, I'm packing my luggage.

With other things going on, like the casting to do for the dancers for the tour, I have to come back to Japan.

And then I bought gifts in Hawaii, but I was so busy everywhere that I missed! lol

Do something! m(__)m KAZ!

Oh, if I post a today's photo ...
Can I do it?
My departure is in 4 hours ...
Come on, I'll try!

A false history.
No. 447 15-02-2009 05h17

... or rather, a story that I want to be false.

So! To all those who have noticed that something was wrong... here's the answer.

Yes: I shouldn't be able to write you a message right now!
I should be in the aircraft.

We missed the flight...(-_-)
We were stuck in a giant traffic jam .(-_-)

Here I'm back with all my baggage that I had carefully made.

Tell me... seriously... what can we do here?

With this, our planning is garbage!
Seriously, I don't want to laugh ...

A nightmare? A bad nightmare?

Well ...
No. 448 16-02-2009 02h12

Here, the nonsense story continues.

Chon-chan is still stuck in L.A.

This time, we can't find a free seat on any airplanes. They are all occupied ...

If things went normally, today, at this time, I would have been in the middle of a slap-bang shooting for a new PV in Tokyo.

My heart is starting to pain me ...(>_<)

Climb aboard!
No. 449 16-02-2009 17h58

finally I could board!
And there, we just got out of Narita airport.

When at the LAX airport, there were places that opened up. Hashimoto Prince called us with strength: "I have them !!!"

And when I heard that, I didn't know what was the matter. I ordered food through room service.
No comment.

So we can say I returned safely.

For my luggage, I recognized that I put in a hurry what I kept on hand so I don't quite know what's inside! lol

I left 90% of my stuff at the hotel lol
I think it's Stan-chan and Louise who will take care of that.

I'm driving to the film set of the nextPV!
I will do it with the strength of my will!
And to all those who came to greet me in Narita, really thank you very much! (**)

Artikel om Ayu's steg mot digital musik.

Ayu takes digital music to the "Next Level"

Ayumi Hamasaki's tenth original album, "NEXT LEVEL," marks a new stage in the era of digital music. With the industry gradually shifting away from CDs, Hamasaki has decided to make the album available to fans on a USB flash drive.

USB distribution has been tried by indies artists before, but this is a first for a major label in Japan. The USB album will be released in limited quantity on the same day as the regular CD version on March 25. "NEXT LEVEL" will be released in a total of 4 different packages, including a CD+DVD combination. The USB edition will include all 13 tracks from the regular CD, 6 music videos, and a lyric booklet.

The USB flash drive itself will have a capacity of 2 GB. The album will take up about 800 MB, while the remaining 1.2 GB of space is free to use. At a price of 6,800 yen, the USB version is said to be a bargain, as typical USB drives reportedly sell for around 4,000 to 5,000 yen.
The USB will be packaged in a case the same size as a normal CD case, making it easy to display in stores. Oricon will apparently include the USB drive version in its sales tracking.

Hamasaki explained, "As the way we listen to music changes from day to day, I looked at things from the listener's perspective and decided to sell it this way."

The whole Ayu-team is always at work.

In fact, just now, there was a break and I went to the supermarket nearby.
We went to buy our snacks!

Stan-chan and Gyo-chan were wisely at the checkout.
I walked around the surrounding area in the meantime.

Then behind me I hear, "'Scuse me please!"

Surely it was hesitant, but it was Japanese that I heard.

So naturally, I turned around.

And then:

"Booooooooooooooooo (0)ノ!!!!"

he said with a huge smile!

My reaction ↓

_ ",,,,,,,,,,,,,,,?????( ○ ○ )?????"

And he added without hesitation:


And then, I understood.

In fact, what he said was "bankeibooo" (my name pronounced in Chinese).

I don't know why he retained my name in Chinese.
But it's true, I thought Chon-chan should get used to the "boooo" or "bouuuu" ...

Ah! ! ! ! Chon-chan, she succeeded!
When necessary, I know how to cling on eh?

I managed to photograph JK-san and Nobita-kun, and they didn't realize!

Currently, there is another arrangement, which I call Nobita-kun, well this Nobita-kun is currently in the main studio and is recording a lot of different instruments.

Sounds that are only born in the air in LA ☆

The sounds of instruments in this song, I should be recording them in this studio in L.A ! ! That's what I thought, and I can't wait to hear the result! ♪

Today too, in the morning, everyone -- Kome, Morimoto-san, JK-san, Nobita-kun, all those of Ayu management staff and also Stan-chan -- is active!

I also took all the photographs without their knowledge, and I'll put in the "Today's Photos," ok? (_-)- ☆

Come on! Attack me, new song!

Today's photos 448-449-450-451-452-453 : Pics of Los Angeles

Photo No. 448: Arrival at Narita

On the far right there's a man talking on the phone jammed between his head and shoulder. On the right is a man who always travels with a lot of baggage using "hands-free."

He's called Boomerangblue.

Photo No 449: Today

It's during extreme cold weather. The smiling faces of all those who gave me lots of things.

Thaaaaanks huh?

Photo No. 450: Computeeeer

With such a blue sky, a violent wind rose suddenly, and he even had a big shower!

We found Stan without problem

Photo No. 451: Stan-chan

We were so hungry that we turned into wax statues.

First it was a lunch with everyone.

Chon-chan stared at the waiter (why?)

Today, it's Cuban cuisine!

We love Cuban cuisineeeee!

Photo No 452: After ...

A kind person who must choose between eating and talking!

Another photo: A kind person who takes too much food into her mouth and gets embarrassed!

What? In fact, the explanation that surfaced is that Chon-chan was the most hungry! lol

Go! Good cheer for registration!

Photo No 453: On Tokyo ...

It was sent by calculating of the time of my return!

A kitty-chan all shiny! (*^_^*)

Too cuuuuuuuuute ! !

But, finally I'll use it lol!

I'm in L.A.!

The moment the plane I took was put in landing mode, I heard one big thud. And wondering what it could be, I realized that it was rain. A ton of it. A real joke! It's as if my power to make rain was strangely globalized.

KAZ took full pictures, even at the airport, I will send "Photos of the day" ☆

TA Message 431 + Today's photo 447 : Dentist's story

Ayu besöker alltså tandläkaren och postar även en bild därifrån.

It's really ...

... tawdry for a new layout, huh?
Not bad, eh?

I'll go! ! ! ! ! ! !

That is what inspires it, right?

Even if my poses are without explanation, they had to be inspired by the universality of the meeting of these basic colors.

I'm changing the subject, but now, between two sessions, I went to the dentist.

And then they put in my mouth a little thing like what you'd give to baby. How would you say it... a kind of pacifier, pretty much.

But it seems that this accessory was too big. I thought it made my jaw drop, and I felt like my mouth was glued to my eyes ... (what does that mean? lol). And the nurse noted, "It's too large, isn't it?" and she had it exchanged with another one.

Then the dentist told the nurse something that worried me.

"You know, let's use the child-sized one."'s like this...??? lol

He's good, the doc. It was exactly the right size... lol

It's true that, for shoes, I do 36**

Well, I'll send the photo of the day !

**No idea what this means.

Hur som, för de som vill beställa från CDJ kommer länkar. ^^

Nu finns de att beställa, som vanligt med ett slumpmässigt urval av alla 7 så dubletter kan hända.
Men vem kan motstå de små raringarna? ^^
Inte jag!

Förmodligen kommer vi i Sverige få ta del av denna version i framtiden. ^^ Lite längre än den franska med mer av Ayu's Rule.

No 443:
Här intar hon en pose och säger "Aloha" men det var innan hon insåg att dörren var låst vilket var lite problematiskt.

No 444:
Bilder från studion medan hon sjunger, barfota igen. (Någon som börjar förstå flygplansvaktens förfrågan om alla barnkläder?) ;)

No 445:
En till bild från studion.

Today I woke up at 4 o'clock in the morning.

It was all black, and I had a reasonable fear lol

In fact, if I were in Tokyo, this would be a time when I'm still working... that's what I thought while eating tacos in pajamas. Unknown meaning lol.

Well, of course, today I go to the studio, but even though it's already 8 o'clock, it's still too cold outside. I can't go out lol

I'm wrapped in a bathrobe, barefoot.

The sun has just gone down, and we're in full "magic hour".

And I think it's a real luxury for me to write you a message while I contemplate such great landscape.

We ended up to mixing a song. Tomorrow we will work on a new song.

Really, thank you to all my staff who, day after day, adapt to my pace of life in full jet lag, and accept to work hard even in the very early morning.

For February, the Ayu team has a busy schedule.

But I'm sure that with such team, we can do everything.

Given everything that's happened, I realize this every day from my work as well.

Ah ... it's dark now.

I'll come back later!

Wish strongly, so strongly
And everything will start
To believe, that is,
Nothing but to wish *

Översättningar av Rule och Sparkle

All creds till Maikaru @ AHS som så snällt översatte dessa texter efter bästa förmåga.


*Rules decided for us by someone else,
They aren't necessary,
Because we are the Rules,
And we can't give that part up.

In this era, they ask where the hell is hope?
They ask can we believe in something that we cannot feel or touch?
I am silent, and with a nod silently close my eyes.

Because now, we can feel like we certainly are connected so clearly.

*Rules decided for us by someone else,
They aren't necessary,
Because we are the Rules,
And we can't give that part up.

This world is not yet the thing that we abandoned.
Everything is cloudy.
Even though it's whatever kind of darkness, The confidence only to believe someone is enough,
I give a deep breath, and scream loudly.

Because, I was taught that everything is not by accident, but it's all inevitable by you one day.

The boring Rules that were settled upon,
I don't want to be forced to follow them.
First off, you and I are the rules,
Let's start to crush them.

From the moment that strength turns into kindness,
And kindness turns into strengh,
There won't been any thing to be scared of..
I get that feeling..

*Rules decided for us by someone else,
They aren't necessary,
Because we are the Rules,
And we can't give that part up.

The boring Rules that were settled upon,
I don't want to be forced to follow them.
First off, you and I are the rules,
Let's start to crush them.


It won't start just by staring at it,
And it won't become your's.
Until when do you plan on doing that,
And sucking your thumb?

The thing you started to say one day,
I will always think about it.
I couldn't seriously turn my eyes away from that face.
With something that I will say sometime,
Believe that something will change for me.

It won't start just by staring at it,
And it won't become your's.
Until when do you plan on doing that,
And sucking your thumb?

Even though these are days where I come to not understand if this is a dream or reality,
I must not forget to look forward.
Because the answer is supposed to lie within me.

With just believing it, it's boring.
There's no expectation of being rewarded,
From when are You doing this,
While You're just standing there still?

If you feel boredom in these days that just repeat themselves,
Then try to look forward just once,
And something should change from there.

It won't start just by staring at it,
And it won't become your's.
Until when do you plan on doing that,
And sucking your thumb?

With just believing it, it's boring.
There's no expectation of being rewarded,
From when are You doing this,
While You're just standing there still?

Today's photo 429-430-431

Bilder från inspelnignarna på Hawaii och Ayu ser lika fantastisk ut som vanligt! Luktar vi ny singel eller ett album? Hon ska ju trots allt ut på en tour snart igen. Kanske kanske det är ett album på g igen?! :D
Och vem vill inte ha ehnnes dögulliga nya laptop som finnes i första bilden (429)..?!?!

- NEW!!

Here's a new and small "whim"
Well, it's quite nice, but is too decorated, baybe a little heavy! lol

430 - Here's..

... where I go walking, the recording studio!

At that time, the sun wasn't yet fully lifted, so it's quite dark lol

It's a life completely opposite to Tokio's life!

About the right photo, is the bag that I have! It's made of the same materias of the sweat, is light and very practical.

431 - I'm gonna siiiiiing!

I don't know why, but if I'm with make up.. I am not fine.
It's as if I can't concentrate.

For the same reasons that during the rehearsals for the Tour, I'm without makeup.
