A recipe for a happy night  

LOVE MY LIFE: Because some nights you just need some girls happily kissing each other. Man, a title rarely so accurately tells me what feelings it's going to inspire! IT MADE ME LOVE MY LIFE BECAUSE I WAS CURRENTLY WATCHING THIS MOVIE. I'll be straight with you (lmao word choice), when I first came across this one on rainscene I thought, "Can it really be happy all the way through? Maybe I'll just skip to the parts where the frolic and make-out, that is really why I'm watching this movie." BUT GUESS WHAT: THAT'S THE WHOLE MOVIE. :DDD I love that this isn't a movie focused on issues or These Characters Being Gay (though it deals with both of those handily!) but rather just two people being in love. They have problems, yes but there's also a lot of adorable running around on beaches and lustily making out in the back of taxicabs. As love goes. ♥ Actually, this was one of my very favorite Japanese movies I've watched yet which may say something about my priorities. XD It's so great and if you appreciate girls in love (who happen to be v. v. pretty, one actress reminds me of Ueda who is, as we all know, a fairy prince himself. XD) and the (thankfully moderate) problems they face, you should definitely watch this. (Oh although it involves some slightly risque sexytimes which are welcome in my book but you should probably know that!)

Also, the soundtrack was really good! I downloaded it immediately after watching the movie. :) It's done by the alt rock band Noodles and features a lot of dreamy female vocals paired with lots of guitar and a bass-y, heaviness. Gorgeous stuff. ♥ I uploaded the title song and the ending track but it's all equally good if anyone wants the whole soundtrack! On box.net: Love My Life & Fool Song.

After that, I started watching random Subaru vids from pimp posts which soon turned into me dancing around in my room and performing all the Eito dances I know along with the Countdown DVD. Which is only like Sukiyanen, Osaka, Kyu Ju Show and Zukkoke Otokomichi (which is actually just me shaking my butt in imitation of the PV and not actually a dance XD). (Also I may have been tipsy from the beer that went with the movie beforehand.) (This may have been a contributing factor.) I'm a pretty classy kid, I know. BUT ALSO A RELAXED KID.

Honestly? I hate the fact that Japanese films trick me all the time. Granted, part of it is because I only have the translated summary to go on, but it seems to me like their favorite thing to do is start off in one genre and change into another.

HEAVENLY FOREST made me WEEP like CRAZY and it seemed like a lighthearted film! I don't even want to go into how scarred I was by Koizora.

Is there no such thing as romantic comedy there? No FLUFF for the sake of... FLUFF!

If this film does it, I'm interested. For serious. ♥

Yes, I hate that too. It seems like so many movies like to have a twist and that twist is ending tragically. :/ HEAVENLY FOREST got me too! I think that was part of the time when phrenk and I managed to encounter three TRAGIC SURPRISES in the course of a week. MY HEART CAN'T TAKE THAT SORT OF THING, JAPAN!

I will have to add Koizora to my don't get tricked into watching this, it will only end in tears for you! list. Seriously, we need to have a rec list of things that won't break your heart.

All that said, THIS MOVIE IS THE FLUFFIEST THING TO EVER FLUFF! Okay, some mildly angst happens but it is cushioned on every side by cuddling and shopping montages. And nothing at all tragic happens. I happen to love fluff so this was SO welcome and refreshing! ♥

Um, YEAH! :D I've been stalking rainscene for a while now (and recently incorporating many of your fine suggestions into my watching schedule) but feeling like I didn't want to intrude on your personal journal. Except obvs I did, because you like a lot of awesome things!
