Hihihi… I’m a-changing my main handle to
(not to be confused with the Veoh user by the name of kirarinsnow … my handle has a STAR, or alternatively a space/dash/exclamation point if you’re not Unicode-compliant)
I’ll respond to Kawaiirrhea, but that name’s getting kind of old, and everyone (including me) keeps misspelling that pesky double i double r (which is now separated into nonconsecutive i‘s and r‘s). So I am now
Konnichi pa! コンニチパ！！！！ Konnichi pa pa kon nichi pa!!
I’ve gone by various names over the last couple of months, including the following (you can trace the etymology of Kirarin☆Snow ☃ accordingly):
⁂ Kirarin☆Snow ⁂ ☃
I’ll respond to any of the above, as well as these alternate transliterations in various writing systems (I’m not an expert at most of these, so please correct me if I mangle the orthography of your language…):
Gah! My eyes! I can’t take any more of this! Sorry if I didn’t get to your writing system.
As I’ve mentioned elsewhere, while I love compiling rankings of works released by Hello! Project, I refuse to give a subjective ranking of individual people, for various reasons. But Paul Thomas’s new poll is just so shiny I couldn’t resist…
So here is my objective ranking of Morning Musume, Berryz Koubou, and ºC-ute, using criteria that (I assume) no fan actually uses, consciously or not, to determine their favorites, though the near-perfect (except Kamei) spectral order of MoMusu is rather interesting and makes me suspect someone on the inside might be using a similar criterion to assign costume colors…
Sure, it might be a coincidence, but really, the probability of at least n – 1 out of n elements randomly appearing in a specified order is .* In MoMusu’s case, n = 9, so the odds are about 1 in 5582.77. Hmm…
* I leave the proof of this formula as an exercise for the reader.
My last post has apparently sparked a “laugh riot” of a debate that’s now more than three times as long as my original post. If you haven’t seen it yet, you may find it worth reading. Or maybe not.
As always, I appreciate your feedback, positive or negative. It’s always good to know how effective my communication is.
And now, on to the next batch:
