Well,Yesterday,I Had this talk with katie,a good friend of mine about music & stuff.But somehow,The talk had concluded with me saying this to myself…

I Think I may not be that into H!P Anymore.

Well,I’m still into h!p & Love them to death But,I Don’t know,I’m just not that into them like I was last year.And also I’ve really started to adore & favor Other groups & solo artists over them.Well,last year,I didn’t listen to their music that often and thought this.

Hello! Project >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Other Artists

But That’s slowly changing and Freakin adore more artists other than ones under Hello! project.And just To think that last year,I couldn’t listen to AKB48 or Girls’ Generation because,I was a purely H!P Purist.

I started listening to AKB48 around June of 2007 after I read an article on Team B’s major debut on “Totally Hello! Project” & The lineup included an auditionee from the 8th gen Auditions,Kashiwagi Yuki(Yukirin).I decided to check the group out and thought that the group was a 7 member group & not that big of a group.But when I saw the Video for “BINGO!”.I Was really shocked with the member count & At first I thought that there weren’t that many girls & that was just a computer effect.I suddenly got hooked on their music & Often listened to their new singles.

But somehow,I realized that they were so called “Inferior” to h!p & stopped listening.

Then A few months later,I missed out on a lot of akb48 & Suddenly,I got hooked to the group again,Now I adore them again.

Not Long after I Discovered AKB48,I found out about So Nyeo Shi Dae(A.K.A:Girls’ Generation)

In Late 2007,I didn’t really get into the group until Mid 2008,I stopped listening to the group for a few months.But then,after I heard Gee,I Must say,I Freakin adore the group again.

And after that,I got Into KAT-TUN & NewS

I Discovered both groups back in 2007,I Seriously adore the both of them.:)

Then It was TVXQ & Idoling!!!!’s Turn.I really adore TVXQ & Idoling!!!!

Thanks Silverbolt & Forever Idoling!!! for regaining my hope in the group.even If rumi/Saya/Maria left.

And finally,just recently,I got into PARADISE GO!! GO!!

But I must say,They do not have bad songs & I adore this group.btw,I couldn’t find a picture so enjoy this video of faraway,My fave Paradise go go song.

___________________________________________________

So,In conclusion,This post teaches me that I don’t just adore h!p but I still adore other groups too.And I can juggle bunches of fandoms at a time.This post does NOT translate to I WILL BE STOPPING ACTIVITIES ON THIS BLOG PERIOD.This blog will still be active.
