Ayumi Hamasaki DataBank.

Ok so here's an idea I had a few hours ago!....i was bored LoL. So as you can see below there is like a index of all things Ayu -very much incomplete-. I was thinking though that maybe one of mods or someone could make this a sticky in the forum -not sure if Ayu-chat is the right place so feel free to move it-

So basically the idea is that everyone could post all those interesting little tid-bits they know about Ayu and they could be added to the databank or index or whatever... you know what i mean! Just so that anyone new -or old- to the world of Ayu -and jpop- has a run down of little facts about her! A one-stop-shop if you like! So i'm trying to include lingo like 'engrish' and 'kawaii' for those complete newbies. But still keeping it Ayu specific!

There's still alot missing at the moment as this was just thrown together this morning as a draft copy of sorts, so if any of the info is wrong please feel free to post a correction! This should be as accurate as possible! So what do you all think? good idea.. bad idea?? Feel free to say what you think -i'm a toughie- !

Anyways you'll all help right?? I'm sure we could all shock each other with the strange and wonderful facts we know about our idol, so start posting them and they will be added! And dun worry, creds will be given at the bottom of the post for all members that contribute!

AOV - Acoustic Orchestra Version. One of Ayu's many series of remix albums is the AOV remix albums I, II, III, & IV. These albums feature remixed versions of her original albums songs, but instead of being remixed in a trance or upbeat style these are toned down and are played with orchestral instruments to acheive a much more classical and laid back feel. Ayumi's voice is often much more prominent on these albums and her vocal skill shines through strongly.

All night Nippon - Radio show Ayu once hosted on 28th Dec 1998. The theme of the show was "Hamasaki Ayumi is not stupid" and during this show Ayu talked a little about her child hood and accepted calls and faxes from the public. A translation of the tranliteration of the interview can be found at Masa's site.

Ankh - Perfume sold by Ayu through her MTRLG fashion label. It comes in a pink bottle in the shape of the egyptian symbol Ankh, the symbol for eternal life. Which is basically just a cross with a loop at the top.

While not an impressive work it still has a high value to her fans who are interested in listening to ayu rapping and how her voice sounded back then.
The discs were originally released on NIPPON Columbia but have been out of print for a long time and these days sell for outrageous amounts of money on Japanese auction sites. After Ayu rose to fame half a decade later, a small Japanese company re-released the tracks on a disc entitled "The Past of Ayu" (LECL-5501). That brought on a lawsuit from Ayu's current record company, avex trax, and that CD is also gone from the market as a result.

NTV Special 2000/2004 - In this event, Ayu expessed her thoughts and feelings about her career, both past and present, to the public for the first time.

O

Ayu promotes several products for Panasonic including 'Lumix' + 'D-snap' camera's, 'T [tau]' + 'VIErA' TV's 'Dream' DVD players, 'Dockin' style' Mini disc players, and CD players. CM's usually feature Ayu using the product while plugging one of her songs as the background music. Panasonic

Pets - Ayu is most definetley an animal lover and has a variety of pets that has over time included:
-■- 5 Chihuahuas ['Crea', 'Melon', 'Vanilla', 'Pudding' + 'Choko']
-■- A Yorkshire terrier ['Ringo']
-■- A bulldog [Bu-chan]
-■- A miniature Duchshund ['Maron']
-■- A shiba ['Momo'],
-■- Along with puffer fish, octopus, tropical fish and an iguana called Ayu.
-■- She also has an Aibo robot dog, which bears the moniker Ayubo.

Popjam - Music Variety show hosted by Moriguchi Hiroko at the NHK Hall. Airs 10:00 on NHK. Japanese music artists including Ayu frequently apear on this show to promote their latest single/album this includes chatting with the hosts and then performing their latest song in front of a live audience.

Purchasing - want to buy Ayu CDs or DVDs? There are numerous stores online that stock Ayu goods, the most popular of these include YesAsia, HMV Japan and cdjapan. Other options are Ebay and Amazon.

That's pretty cool, but a little correction concerning Boss. Boss isn't a company, rather it's the brand of the coffee Ayu endorsed. The BOSS brand is owned by the company, Suntory.

I put her under H for Hamasaki Ayumi - the japanese order of her name. I'll make a note about Ayumi being her given name though!

PS if more people feel she should be under A please say so.. I'll change it if this is the majority!

Thanks ayumaria all comments apreciated!

Dub Master X
Remixer: Dub Master X
Real name: Izumi Miyazaki
Born: 1963
Nationality: Japanese

Izumi Miyazaki aka Dub Master X is probably Japan's no.1 remixer. After getting a degree as a sound engineer in Tokyo, he got a job as a mixing engineer at the hot spot club "Pithecanthropus". He then joined the dub band MUTE BEAT (other members included Kazufumi "Echo" Kodama, Akihito Masui, Tabayoshi Matsunaga, Hirobumi Asamoto and Gota Yashiki) and they released 5 albums and 5 singles between 1982 and their breakup in 1990, as well as doing live gigs in places like Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York. A personal highlight for Miyazaki came in 1988 when he got to work with the creator of Dub, the late King Tubby.

After MUTE BEAT disbanded, he joined MELON, a project headed by former PLASTICS member Toshio Nakanishi, as an engineer, and toured Italy and England.

Miyazaki also started DJ'ing in 1983, with his base in the club MONK BERRYS in Harajuku, but he was also being hired as a scratcher and engineer for both studio recordings and live events. He was a central figure in the DJ boom in Japan together with Hiroshi Fujiwara, and actually got the reputation of being one of the top artists in the field.

He and Fujiwara then got involved in the remix business, remixing songs for Kyoko Koizumi, a famous singer in Japan. He continued remixing as well as being an engineer and club DJ, and emerged as the leader in his field. In fact, he blazed new trails when he was signed to record label avex trax as a remixer in 1999. He's now viewed as the premier remixer in Japan, having worked with big names like Pizzicato Five, ELT, Namie Amuro, MAX, DA PUMP, DAI, HAL and of course Ayumi Hamasaki. His name-recognition is so wide and his remixes so popular that avex trax released a compilation of his remixes called "Dub's Music Box" (AVCD-11856).

At present, Miyazaki continues to display all his talents as remixer, DJ, musical arranger, producer, recording engineer, P.A. operator & planner, composer, programmer, radio program producer and more. Additionally, Miyazaki's released a few solo albums on Colombia Records under his Dub Master X moniker.

I'm not sure if you'll like this idea but you might want to do this on www.wikipedia.com - it's an online encyclopedia where any one can contribute stuff...there're already some things on Ayu but we could always add more.

Sounds good, but is possible to edit the info after it's been submitted? This index, like I said is very much incomplete, so if it was submitted to this site, someone would need to keep it up to date.
If you would like to upload the 'databank' to this site please feel free to! But, again keep in mind the list will 'hopefully' be much more extensive in the near future so it would need to be updated. In other words, Go for it! But if you do , please keep it up to date ne?
