[Info] BeeTV To Broadcast PVs From AVEX From The Past 20 Years

BeeTV which was launched on 1st May, and whose membership broke 400,000 on 15th June, is a mobile phone TV channel which allows you to enjoy TV dramas, videos and more. From [ROOKIES - Graduate-] to [Getting Married To 40 Women In 90 days], to personal videos with Tohoshinki [Tohoshinki's MOOLOG], there are many options for everyone. However, from 1st July, BeeTV will broadcast more than 2,000 music videos which have been released over the last 20 years.

These will be broadcasted on 1st July in BeeTV’s new segment [AVEX Music Collection]. This segment includes past videos from artistes like TRF, Namie Amuro and EXILE. Latest songs that were released from 2 weeks prior, will also be included. Also, a 140 minute long video of Ayumi Hamasaki and other artistes participating in the annual summer concert [a-nation], will also be included, and on 1st July, you’ll be able to enjoy 2,000 videos from a total of 445 artistes.

Up till today, BeeTV has also previously aired videos from artistes like Ayumi Hamasaki and EXILE, but now others will be included. To be able to watch these music videos through your mobile phones any where you go is not only an enjoyable thing, but also a great service to music lovers.

[News] 「Sunrise / Sunset ~LOVE is ALL~」 both PVs will be filmed together with Team Ayu members on 6th July 2009

How lucky being TA Members, some lucky Team Ayu members will be picked up and film the new single's PVs together with Ayumi Hamasaki on 6th July 2009 (if it's not raining). 

This info is coming from a TA Member in AHS Forum, here what he said:

So since the split of the News section, I don't know where to put this...so I'll put it here:

Ayu's new PV's are going to include TeamAyu members (like my friend predicted awhile back haha)

The Application form was sent today June 30th, but it ends on July 1st. 

It will be filmed on July 6th, and if it's rainy, there's a rain date.
The location will only be announced to the lucky people who get picked.

There are clothing requirements of summer type clothing: bright colors, tanktops, camisoles, bathing suits, shorts (those were specifically listed in the mail)

I think it then says to dress for the weather? If it's cloudy, dress for the cloudy weather? If it's rainy, wear a rain outfit--but not an umbrella (except for when not being filmed) But not sure of that. Plus if it does, I don't understand why there's a rain date...ahaha

But yeah, teamayu members only.

*I, along with some other teamayu members in Japan ask the following of teamayu members NOT IN JAPAN. If you're NOT IN JAPAN, please don't apply and take the oppertunity away from people who are in Japan. Unless you're 100% willing to fly out here for July 6, please don't apply. We know that it would be awesome to get picked and say "oh i got picked! but i can't go." But it's just....

Obviously we can't stop you, but just think about it... They only pick a certain number of people and if you're picked and are not going to come to Japan, it's not very fair...Especially if the video shoot will require a certain amount of people or whatever

but yeah ^_^ That's it~

That wasn't supposed to sound mean if it does haha xD

The application form, get it from here

[News] Sunrise / Sunset ~ LOVE IS ALL ~ will be the official soundtrack for the upcoming summer drama "Dandy Daddy?"

According to this piece of newspaper scan, Ayu's new summer single "Sunrise / Sunset ~ LOVE IS ALL ~" will be the theme song for the new upcoming summer TV Asahi drama called "Dandy Daddy?" which will be aired starting from 9th July (which means we will be able to hear the preview from the drama version first! great!)

More information about the drama, check here

A preview of the chorus[?] was played during a morning news show[s] and the song apparently has a very band-like sound, and is likened to EnergizE or independent.

もっと大きな声で もっと大きな愛を 
もっと大きな声で もっと大きな愛を叫ぶから 

Rough general translation/romaji of the lyrics from an amazing friend:
The love is being carried to the other person through their voice.
And it resounds in their heart.
And that growing love will call out through that voice.

motto ooki na koe de motto ooki na ai wo
kimi ni todoku yo ni itsumo mune ni hibikasetai
motto ooki na koe de motto ooki na ai wo yobu kara

-lyricized translation-
Through this growing voice, this growing love
Will reach you and always resound in your heart
I'll call out this growing love through my growing voice

Translation from TakaSama:
"With a louder voice, a greater love
Will reach you
I always want it to ring in my heart
because a louder voice will bring forth greater love"

I ordered a Green Tea Frappuchino。

This is。

It's the usually look of a Green Tea Frappuchino?

But、the perfect flavour could have been vanilla。

I convinced that this is the color。(Laughs)

Oh、I also ordered one of this。

A Blueberry Muffin。

This is.

Chon-san、the Tea from Starbucks、because it was the first time、was super excited、that I sinked。(Laughs)

[Ayu's Diary] That's a foolish question. 28.06.09

Guess that Ayu's posting a lyric for her new single?
or only her thought about life?

That's a foolish question.
28-06.09 21:58 | ayu

Yeah, that was a foolish question.

We are born alone, and we're going to die alone.

These are facts that will not change.

But, the fact of living alone can not be good

After all, 「I wasn't alone」.

We can not continue in the past moments, present is now,

now to the future.

[Ayu's Diary] I forgot (^_^; ) 28.06.09

Woah seriously..Ayu looks like she has gone back to the year 2000,  the year where she debuted! look at the picture below..her current hairstyle just looks exactly like on her very first concert tour 2000! She's getting younger and younger!

I forgot (^_^; )
 28-06-09 01:58

I posted something awhile ago but i forgot to attach the pictures, so I'm writing it again.

I was sleepy because it was early this morning. (or I'm sleepy because I've been up since early this morning, not sure.)

Let's sleeeeeeep.

Because it was really hot and sweaty today, these things were must haves!!!

Isn't this drink holder cute? (*^_^*)

It prevented slippage and I was able to carry it all day ♪

And, Bancho and I had matching folding fans ♪ (?)

There was a really good smell of insense when I looked up and I felt good (healed?)

I'm doing some stretching with Momi and then going to sleep.

Everyone, please try to stretch before you go to sleep too.

When I have company, the feelings of getting up and down are different (talking about the stretching?)

Good night.
