I'll take a tall light caramel latte with an extra shot and a little bit of honey, please. And a cookie.

Also, doesn't contribute more money to the artist/label.

I just wish there were a bigger "world music" market here (in the US). I used to live in Orlando, and they had one of those HUGE Virgin Mega stores before it went out of business a year or two ago...I mean, it was enormous. And they had a "world" section. But it was mainly Latin music and reggae (which is great, but not much of a "world" variety). Then, they had some traditional world music compilations--also cool, but where's the modern pop/rock music?

I'd find, like, a Puffy CD, a Shonen Knife b-side collection, and a couple of random, old JPop/Rock compilations. And then just traditional Japanese music. Chinese music was 100% traditional (unless you count Twelve Girls Band because they've been "mainstreamed"), and there was NOTHING Korean.

Once in a while, I'd find an Asian Kung Fu Generation, L'Arc~en~ciel, TM Revolution, or Thee Michelle Gun Elephant CD in the store's main pop/rock section, because those bands have (or had) American distributors. No Ayu whatsoever. No Gackt, back when he was such a huge name. Nothing else, no matter how famous the artist/group might be throughout all of Asia.

/rant

I know there's not much of a market for Asian music in the US (even though the fanbase has grown so damn much in the past 10 years, compared to before), but I always thought it was ridiculous that an absurdly large, international chain like Virgin Mega has such a weak international music selection...
The Virgin Megastore that I used to go to had some Ayu cds like Duty, Evolution, etc when I used to go there around the early 2000s. I remember my brother even got me an Ayu remix single from there. They didn't have that much Ayu stuff, but it was still cool to see Ayu cds there.

I'd be soooo happy if the cd leaked soon.

The one that used to be in downtown Chicago. They seemed to have a pretty good import section I thought. I miss going there and browsing/listening to new cds.

It leaked it full *i think* the Sunday before release, but before that a few songs here and there had been leaked from the CD by ayuchina.

So I'm using that as when to expect a leak. This weekend! Anytime before that and we're lucky.

And for the first time, I haven't heard any of the new songs off the album besides for the previews on ayu's official website. So excited because everything is going to be new for me. I refuse to watch those short version PVs which just ruin the experience.

***And come to Melbourne guys, in our main shopping street we have an asian import store that has a HUGE selection of Japanese CDs. Its almost like walking into a tower records, but they also stock a cheaper fakes. I haven't found a shop like it anywhere else I've been in the world. Even has a better selection than Victoria Music in Kuala Lumpur (only asian city i've been to). I never buy anything from there though, cos all they do is import and add $10 or something to the price they paid to make profit.

So since someone threw money at her in the do it again PV, I feel like my earlier speculation about the song is correct.

Maybe not so strongly in the lyrics, but definitely the interpretation of the PV. Kinda sad.

Wait, that she's blind? Didn't she look in the mirror at one point though? And she looked at the clothes she was picking out.

LOL when did I say I thought she was blind?! No.
That the song kind of represents how she feels about Avex/fans always wanting more, more, more from her. The pressure and whatever else.

dance, dance, dance, do it again
sing, sing, sing, do it again

Muh, at least you have the option. I have an 8-hour graveyard shift tonight, at a boring desk, so I'm probably gonna be sitting all night, waiting to see if it leaks.
