Check in each Friday for more from this once again!…ongoing series =).

Happy Aloha~♥ Friday ^^!~!

But first!!!!!! ….

Peyton Manning

..and what an amazing!!!! game just yesterday ー(* ̄O ̄)ノ!!!…as you probably know my favorite NFL team the Denver Broncos got a huge come from behind victory over the Kansas City Chiefs with their final two touchdowns coming in like 9 seconds of one another nearing the ending of regulation!! The defense is GREAT, offensive line needs more time together to develop a running game and special teams were pretty amazing too on this night! However my football crush~♥ Peyton Manning proved that the news of his demise is premature, sure Father Time is undefeated but this true legend and icon of the game still has game. You know I always get super nervous whenever I watch them play like I go through peaks an valleys of emotions and usually speak to the television asking it questions or demanding that something good happens along with the occasional freak~out =P.

And just one last thought about the season so far:

Seems that last week Peyton Manning had cable, but this week he has DirecTV \(^o^)/ ☆!~!!!

And here’s a hilarious classic SNL skit which is pee in your pants funny!!….starring the football legend himself…(^q^)!  Not that I accidentally peed as ….that was um a long time ago like when I was in kindergarten….no no that never happened (。ーωー。)笑!

BOMB magazine no.226 December 1998 issue

Tonight’s issue takes us back to December of 1998 and as you can see it’s fave idol/actress,j~pop star, CM girl, model Fukakyon♥!!! on the cover!

Back then Bomb magazine used to be published in a really different format as it was digest sized (the reason I could scan two pages at a time today!) and really chock full of a vast array of special features covering just about everything idol related as well as popular culture related, really a one stop magazine for all of your monthly~entertainment needs! =) Today’s format is larger however it’s missing many features which I really liked back then, however that being said whether it be from yesteryear or today Bomb magazine is simply awesome and a must subscribe idol publication for any fan of the genre.

Notable features herein include: Okina Megumi pictorial….whom also had a brief J-pop career, let me know if you wanna hear her album!/ Of course the main Fukakyon♥ feature and what was really great about being the Bomb magazine covergirl back then is that you really received the royal treatment as in addition to your extra lengthy pictorial (her then new shashinshuu titled “Colors” being featured herein…so nostagic ne~..!) there was also a long interview, body check (not always though depending on the idol being featured). bedroom invasion check so you could see exactly where your favorite idols placed each and every item in her room and a really revealing “growing up” feature where not only stories of her past were delved into but also those oh so cute growing up family photo album pics were plentiful!/ Suzuki Sarina interview/ Kawai Chiharu interview/ back issue flashback/ Nakajima Reika pictorial/ Yuuka pictorial, a very popular gravure idol of those days!…and the second you see her you’ll ahem! know why =P/ Niiyama Chiharu pictorial/ Hara Fumina, Kato Ai, Satou Eriko & Sakai Ayana feature!/ music new release feature/ new movies feature/ new games feature/ and Umm….yes as I mentioned long ago when I first began this series there used to actually be an AV movie review article in like every single issue of this magazine back then =O! Like what could possibly be the reasoning for such a review to exist?? “Yes the guy had some very thoughtful dialogue before he took her clothes off…..and the ambiance of the bedroom was fantastic!…” Huh…?? anyway AV reviews don’t worry I won’t be scanning those! =)/ idol news/ A S.E.S feature albeit it’s in black & white but still how’s that for a sign of the times back then!!/ Enomoto Kanako…remember her detective drama series? It actually aired here back then!/ Gotou Risa pictorial..I always thought she was so adorable!/ Endo Kumiko feature/ Honjo Manami pictorial/ and lastly a Hirosue Ryoko (aka: the it girl of the decade!!) closes this issue with an acting feature ^^.

    You like Cleveland in Basketball and Denver in Football? They are still hurting in Clevo from what John Elway did to them in the 1980s.

    • Actually it’s because I’m a LeBron fan, was a Miami fan when he went there and now he’s returned so I’ve followed him….wacky I know but since Hawaii has no pro teams I gravitate towards favorite players instead =). Had to look up the Elway situation, had no idea that had happened although my excuse is that I was a very very very tiny human being when it occurred =P. Loved Elway in the 90’s! !! Didn’t know that history though.

    Another wonderful and colourful blast from the past. Great scanning job. Honjou Manami is a name that’s new to me, although I suspect I may have watched her in some movie or TV show without realising. I’ve looked her up. She’s still active, and has an updated website, too. Sadly Masa has nothing from her musical career in stock at the moment, although some of her photobooks are on eBay… Hopefully I will get to your other posts soon and catch up with the present.

    • U~n! the BOMB magazine issues of yesteryear are quite easy to scan as their entirety fits upon the scanner, today’s issues are much larger and the features inside are so so very different!! Ah Honjou Manami was quite the regular in idol magazines back then!! There was always this gracefulness about her and YES she’s most gorgeous too! I’d not heard her sing though….. funny I never ventured to order her music back then, sounds very unlike myself not to be curious at the very least. I do have a bit of Okina Megumi’s music who’s also featured in this issue, it’s like every idol released music back then albeit some of those musical ventures were most brief!
