~ 「TGIF!」 Idol♡s unzipped on way back Fridays~ (volume 117) < A Friday the 13th edition (゜Д゜;)!!!>


A very HAPPY Friday the 13th to you!~! ー(* ̄O ̄)ノ!

May sound like an oddity on this particular calendar date to say…. but how many of you out there actually believe in bad luck being sprung from this particular number?? I mean on this calendar date, as long as you’re not slutt~ing around while there’s a weapon wielding mad-man wearing a hockey mask on the loose nearby, I’d say you’ll be pretty much safe right (・_・)。

As written in RULE #1 of surviving a Friday the 13th: Never sleep w/ anyone no matter how horny* or cute the guy/girl may be!

And isn’t this the final Friday the 13th we’ll be getting this side of 2016? So we gotta make it count right! So let’s consider this to be our personal auspicious day ^^ and w/ that I’ve cooked up just a tad bit of Johnny’s x idol fun for tonight =).

Hana yori dango final DVD (digipak scan)

Now this all goes waaaaay back to my “Hana yori dango♥” lovin’ days when I first came across, became “slightly” obsessed of my then new favorite actress in Inoue Mao (above;center) not to mention that HYD was beyond addictive and plain and simple just one of the very finest drama series EVER created on planet earth (take that aliens!!! xD!)

~Inoue Mao vs. “bad luck”~

However I’m getting a bit ahead of myself here as our 147 second clip begins actually elsewhere when it comes to “bad luck” that is. Oh and this mini video clip is @ the very ending of this post ^^.



So this short little 147 second clip begins with one of SmapXSmap’s most endearing and hilarious moments as one of Japan’s most enduring and endeared groups is challenged to knock down caricatures of themselves ala baseball style with an actual star in attendance!

Seems simple?

Perhaps but I’m guessing it’s much easier imagined than done as all members of SMAP + special guest! must knock down their caricature sign in a single try in a pre-determined order consecutively or it’s a failed attempt and they must begin all over again …..(me + baseball = not such good accuracy I’m afraid (>_<; ) But the real gem behind this challenge is exactly how the members of SMAP are set into an order to pitch in their attempts to knock down their personal caricatures, and while this clip only highlights a single run at the challenge, what ensued up to this point has been numerous attempts where each member got their fair chance at “practicing” time and time again as the order restarted time and time again each time a member missed their caricature board as the rules state. However, the only problem being that if you “just happen” to be last in the order (that being poor Goro-kun here, not the most athletic in the group! ….xD) you just don’t get the same amount of opportunities to “practice” as the chain of attempts …rarely if ever reaches you! ・゜・(ノД`)・゜・。!!And if/when it finally does, OH~BOY (;゜□゜)。


….Kyaaaaa~!   (ノロ≦。)!!!!the anguish of going last with so much pressure on you as everyone else has FINALLY completed the task at hand and is depending on you for the WIN!

It doesn’t end….. um well.

bitter melon


Hm.. but what of the batsu (penalty) factor or perhaps this brand of melon misfortune, I mean can you even imagine be made to drink bitter melon (one of the most disturbing “vegetables” on the face of the earth, gomen melons everywhere~! xD_) in smoothie form???!! YIKES ……..(゜Д゜;)!!!! Of course it’s GOOD for you =D Darn you melon (*>ω<)!

Dear Bitter Melon: Why oh why were you deemed edible??? Someone had to eat the first egg too I guess, albeit with much better results!! Or maybe it’s just me? O_o??? My mom ♥’z bitter melon~!!!! Me not so much, actually that’s an understatement of epic proportions!!!!! Bitter melon, OMG! (゜Д゜;)!!!!! Why do we choose to consume such a thing???? It’s “bitter!” and its name says so! Hmm, it gives poor melons everywhere a bad name~! =P

Mix Juice Pinball

So with bitter melon fresh~* on the brain!

It’s time for Mix Juice Pinball!!  ………(゜∀゜)………。

Mix Juice Pinball2

Once again it seems “simple” enough, just get the oversized ball into one of the delicious holes!! (that sounded kinda dirty in an odd way didn’t it =P…) However with so many available delicious fruits which would make an ideal smoothie, how can one miss and let the ball fall into the dreaded chamber of bitter melon??? aka losing at pinball you when the ball falls into the bottom gutter abyss of shame xD. It’s cute how Kimutaku aka: his legendary skit character “P-Chan” asks Maochan what fruit she desires before they begin play, only to have it not available on the board at all! “Bad luck” anyone or perhaps a premonition of sorts?

Mix Juice Pinball3

A~h! the adorabe Maochan of HYD fame and beyond is up for the challenge alongside the ever pink and cutely fuzzy~P-Chan  o(*´∀`)o゛♥. And now..

Mix juice pinball4

…for the pinball launch~! \(^o^)/☆ It’s amazing how large this pinball game is!! I mean who built this crazy contraption?? =O It’s absolutely gigantic! =O And awesome! =D

Mix juice pinball5

This shot really puts things into perspective, just how oversized this pinball game truly is!! Note the delicious possibilities, as surely they’ll get one as there are so many holes for the ball to fall into which would guarantee a sweet & delicious♪♪ smoothie prize!~! ^^*

    I watched guys wearing hockey masks today, because my Pens played Tampa tonight, and it was pretty brutal, but this Pens fan was not harmed at all, except for the mental anguish of seeing the Pens lose the first game of the Eastern Conference Finals. Meh.
    This cheered me up though. Way too awesome. Gotta Love those Smap boys!

    • Well it’s just begun so there’s lots of more games to go =D …also btw I saw that dirty hit and that guy should have gotten waaaaay more than just five minutes, more like a game suspension I think would be most warranted xD. Oh good! I crack up every time I watch Goro-kun throw that baseball so poorly and miss so so badly!! And well bitter melon speaks for itself and to have to consume it as a drink would be unimaginable!! =O Noni has still gotta be the worst!!!!!! Huh i once actually wrote about noni right here ..and here it is only if you’re curious:



      • djv124 says:

        Ah, we won tonight! Yeah! So happy we did it in OT as well, since that is always a huge momentum provider. Lots more to go, as you said, though technically speaking, we are only 7 wins away from holding up the cup! I can’t even believe we made it this far!
        And Noni must really be terrifying to try! I heard it can damage the liver it’s so evil lol. Your post about it was funny, but what kind of overshadowed it was the fact that AKB really has advertised everything, haven’t they? I mean, just the pics you had posted reminded me of why they are so popular…because you can’t get away from them!
        The only way I would drink Noni, if it’s as wretched as everyone says it is, would be if Tani told me I could kiss her if I drank it. But that could probably backfire, since I’m not sure I would be able to do anything with my lips other than open them wide for the inevitable puke that would be coming out of them after drinking the Noni! Or who knows? I might just love it, especially if it was my oshi handing it to me with the promise of the impossible. Yep…I would probably drink a lot worse than Noni for her too!
