Welcome to my cyber~scape (*´∀`)ー♥♥♥、

Lover and free spirit who’s interests in Japanese culture and the like are insatiable. I am of pure Japanese/Okinawan descent, love my cats, sleep and am a bit naughty at times🙂. Here I share my personal impressions and encounters with my heritage in Japanese culture and my interests in idols, music, television, movies, food, sports, my lil’ cat (…(^q^)!) and just about anything which my random mind conjures up including but not confined to the cute, adorable, seXy or fun🙂. This isn’t a news or new release site but rather just a day to day experience sharing sort of place of all things which interest me, make me happy or turn me on. Well enough about boring me and onward with my awkward adventures in writing ….._〆(・∀・@)...

    So glad you got most of your stuff here MB. In fact it looks rather amazingly like VoX!!🙂 I was thinking maybe you could take up a collection? I know you don’t like this idea, but maybe one person you trust can collect it and send it to you for your expenses. You are the main reason I kept coming back to Vox and I learned so much to the Princesses benefit. There must be a way to pay you back and show our support!

    And thanks very much to your friend that got you through this!!❤

    And now I can type on this blog from my iPad!! ^^

    • A~h I think that’s me trying to re~create Vox’s appearance here :P! Oh no no no that’s so sweet~♥ of you but I’m truly fine and happy, just your thought is enough (*´∀`)♥。That’s really wonderful that iPad works with WP and I remember hearing that people couldn’t type into the comment box on Vox while on a mobile device so that’s definitely a positive =). Yes~ Harimakenji’s been so helpful and wonderful and he’s just so knowledgeable with everything imaginable….I would have never made the move here okay without his help every step of the way ^ ^。

    Sorry about the multiple posting (sorry sorry T-T)
    I was just wondering, since i followed JPOP since around the same time and started with mo-musu Morning Coffee…
    Were you a fan as well of the Hello Morning show ?
    when i was in japan, this show was soooo funny and it made me so hungry with their food-based games🙂
    I wonder if it still exists in some form.

    By the way, i was at the AKB48 french little concert last year ^^ and got the tour DVDs just after that

    • Hi MikeNeko~*, you’re name is cute! I’m thinking kitties♥…eh ‘france hito?’ sugoi~*! Other than my audio and video from Vox everything else made it here safely….so happy and relieved about that! I think if I wasn’t able to move all of my posts here I would’ve not wanted to blog from here, would have been too depressing I think (;´□`)。A~h that’s so awesome!!!…we both have been fans of Momusu from their debut \(^o^)/☆!

      A~hhhh Hello! Morning~♥, this was so much the best variety idol program ne~! It went from being like a short 20~25 minute show all the way to a 45 minute show…but before the transition I only have seen a few episodes but after the show’s extended time I think I have almost every episode on disc =). I loved all of the skits and wild batsu games that the staff could come up with!!! Utaban was also most wonderful with Momusu as they sort of coincided with each other as they grew together at the same time back then and with the wonderfully funny chemistry of Taka~san (love him!!!) and Nakai~kun (love him too!!!) so many things were born! The origins of “Johnson”😄 but then the baka tests on H!M academy were the best too!!! Those cracked me up so much…(^q^)! I think they only released the H!M skits on DVD? Then there are other fun programs like “Futarigoto” and “Hello Pro Hour”…also thought the karaoke shows were great too…I collected those on DVD too. I would write about individual episodes of H!M for awhile a few years ago here…..

      and when HM@ didn’t quite live up to H!M…..

        Ieeeeeeeeeeei another Hello Morning fan (=^ェ^)ノヾ(^^ ), It was soooooo crazy, i envy you if you have them on disk (こちらこそ羨ましいにゃん)
        They had a great imagination and that totally shows the chemistry of the group.
        I am glad i knew the jpop at that time (it was really not common in france, we never had pink ladies here and all anime openings were completely redone in french), i even brought home a recording of the kouhaku uta gassen, that s a very nice souvenir (with a mo-musu medley off course) .
        Anyway, the H!M show was a great deal of fun and gave me a smile for the rest of the day, as if i ate Cha-shu Ramens ^^ (you know what i mean).

        Ho and for AKB, my friend filmed part of the event, i have the video (ieeei) ☆★

        • They’re mostly in avi though, I wish I could somehow convert some of the episodes to DVD but still the video and audio is really clear. Oh no I’m most envious of you!!!…that photo gosh~*! you were sooooo close to AKB~♥ ^ ^!!It was too bad that H!P was never able to recapture that H!M magic as those years when the show was 45 minutes were so awesome and I totally agree as they just had so much variety each and every week with such original games…(the batsu games have always been my most favorite~♥), quizzes, skits and just random zaniness that was just the best back then!! But certainly as you’ve pointed out it’s the food themed episodes which always shined so much and you really saw so much of how their personalities really were from week to week…..so much that often times when I re~did my favorite member rankings for Momusu I would be really affected by what was going on in H!M at those times~. A~h I love watching the Kouhaku!!…it’s been a tradition in my family ever since I was little and our family would go to our Grandmother’s home for a New Year’s get together and while everyone had dinner together the Kouhaku would be playing =). We have a station here, (KIKU) which airs the Kouhaku every year although we do see it on a one day delay on New Year’s day here (Hawaii time) but as long as I avoid seeing any online news about it I’m able to keep the winning side yet a secret~* so as not to blemish the suspense and….well everyone always tries to guess whom they think will win. Oh love love ramen♥♥♥!!!! Miso and shoyu are my favorites but I’ll eat just about any type of ramen ー(*≧∀≦)ノ~♥!

            Hum… If you’re interested, there are a lot of DVD players that can read .avi so you wouldn’t even have that trouble (of converting)… you’ll usually find them as supporting “divx”. Considering the age of the Hello! Morning files, I imagine they’d play in any one with support, but still I haven’t tested.

            • This will sound really random and most likely stupid (ノロ≦。)!。。but in the past few days I’ve received PMs through Vox but I’m reading them late as I’m not signed into Vox anymore and some were sort of odd so I wouldn’t respond to those……but anyway a few of the PMs have been asking if I’m moving to a new blog site anytime soon…? I’m sincerely beginning to wonder if there’s something amiss with the last post I wrote there where I linked this WP site? I mean it’s like it’s invisible somehow?…but maybe visible on some days….I don’t know as I think some visitors have seen it? I go there and it’s there atop but I don’t think it’s visible all the time….also as evidence I think as of today about 117 visitors are here at WP and yet the other 400+ are still visiting my old Vox blog……I’m really worried and confused by all of this.

              I’m planning to delete every post @ TypePad prior to Vox closing as I just think that visitors whom are directed to that site will think it’s my new site and will never find WP =(. Even if I post something like I did @ Vox @ Typepad saying that I’m here @ WP….I don’t think it’ll work as it’s not working right now with Vox still being seen as my active blog:/. I must sound freakishly strange having these thoughts I know but from everything that I’m seeing now I somehow think it’s all true.

                Well… Since it’s almost over anyway, another option you have is to delete everything in the Vox blog and leave only the post saying that you’ve moved. That’d sure make people notice something’s wrong. There’s no problem with the post there, it’s just people being blind.

                • I notice too in Blogpatrol that a lot of visitors arrive from photos alone and not posts…maybe from Google images? I wonder where they would arrive if everything is deleted @ Vox? Would that be okay?

  5. HarimaKenji says:

    I guess they’d get to Vox’s “page not found” error page, which will at least give them a link to your blog’s home where the only message would be the “I’ve moved”. There’s no saying if they’d follow it, but… Oh, and there’s no telling how long Google would take to find out the images are down; it should remove them from search results after it detects that. I wonder where they will arrive when Vox really goes down? We don’t know if Vox will redirect every link to the right post in Typepad, or if they’ll just send everyone to the front page there; if they redirect every link and you then delete them from Typepad, you could break all the redirections. But Typepad would surely have an error page similar to the one on Vox, and if you do leave stuff on Typepad some people will stay there, so I guess it’s not much of a choice.

    • I’m thinking that maybe I’m over worried? So maybe I’ll let Vox just close itself on the 30th and not touch anything there….but I do think that I’ll delete all of the posts @ TypePad as I wouldn’t want anyone to think that it’s an active blog. I haven’t even checked on how to do that quickly yet….I should do that soon.

    hi there.
    I’m also a fan that lives in Oahu and I was wondering where you get your idol music from? I have been looking around and have only found a couple of places. So if you could help me out I will be very grateful. Thank you

    Like

    • Hi Leah~*, nice to meet you (*´∀`)!、ah you live here too! My favorite places to order from are mostly Cdjapan for most music…Amazon Japan for shashinshuu and they sometimes have discounts too on music and when somethings out of print I usually check here~*…and also HMV Japan is very good =). The cost of shipping is most expensive ne~* so Amazon Japan can be a bit pricey unless you order many items and then the cost evens out a bit and with Cdjapan I’ve been using EMS for it’s quickness but also I think that FedEx may be very reliable and quick~. Here locally if you love Johnny’s artists then Hakubundo on Kapiolani stocks some of the latest magazines like Potato, Myojo, and others and CDs too and you can also special order from them too with subscriptions. Cdjapan also offers magazine subscriptions to the most popular idol publications. Oh wait you’re speaking of music…oh dear I’ve gotten way off track here (._.;). Sadly locally most of the music places have closed =(….like there were stores with CDs and rentals a few years back but I don’t think any of them are around anymore =(. Nippon Shoten near to Don Quijote on Kaheka stocks some magazines but I’m not sure if they keep up with the latest and they only have a few CDs I think….they would sell lots of older CDs and singles in the past though but I haven’t checked there recently. They do sell shashinshuu though but also I think they may be older titles…..but if you’re looking for t.v. programs like SmapXSmap, Music Station, Hey x3 and others as well as lots of dramas you can finds lots of selection there and even the older titles are for sale I think still~? There’s also Shirokiya in Ala Moana and their Book~Off section…but I think it’s changed quite drastically in the past few months?? Again I haven’t been there recently but they sell lots of manga and t.v., drama and music CDs. In the past they would stock recent releases too but I’m not sure if they’re still stocking those now….I’m so sorry that I can’t be of better help:/. I tend to shop online for most everything J~Pop/idol now as it’s just much easier to find everything…although I know that shipping is very much expensive. Again sadly most of our local J~Pop stores have now closed so it’s limited here with the exception of Hakubundo and Shirokiya but still I would suggest shopping~♥ online as it’s so much easier, convenient and you can reserve LE releases so much easier this way so that you don’t miss them…and especially if you love Arashi~♥! omg I’ve rambled on too much…but I hope~* you can find the idol music you’re looking for ^ ^。

I think the most I ever bid on anything on Yahoo Japan Auctions was Arashi’s “5×5” LE which at that point of me wanting it was long out of print and so rare! A~h! found it…..

                    I don’t know the details but sometimes a lot will depend on how you approach us and then a lot of that depends on her personality as some girls like to be pursued in ways that others would find a turn off. But most important is to always be true to yourself and not project a false image of how you are in front of her and if your personality appeals to her I’m sure she’ll respond~♥.

              Maid cafes are mostly an Akihabara thing, but the concept of “maid” they use is European. Just like Lolita fashion is Japanese, but obviously based on European (British) culture.

              Hum, I wonder what would be a really Japanese maid cafe? I guess they’d just use kimonos. Or maybe a geisha cafe😄
              On a side note, I find interesting how maid cafes got so popular with the otaku crowd. I mean, once the idea is established it’s an obvious one, but I’d have put all my money on a “seifuku cafe” concept instead of maids. Joshikousei have a much bigger influence on anime, and much older (just to start, see: Sailor Moon). I don’t know for sure, but I can’t find maids on older anime; I have a guess that they started appearing after the maid cafes themselves.

I never thought about that, how it originated and especially in anime….seifuku♥ for sure would work as you say with a seifuku~cafe love the idea! A friend of mine was in Japan during Halloween and he said that there were girls everywhere dressed in seifuku for the night and not all school girl~aged…..a~h I used to watch some Sailor Moon a long time ago but it was subbed in English so I imagine it loses some of it’s appeal that way but still really fun!

        I know ~ it’s pretty easy to recognize them by their writing, almost as much as by speech. Line length, line spacing, use, frequency and choice of emoticons, use of foreign words, conscious or not use of kanji (as in, do they just let the cell substitute kanji in for whatever words it wants, or do they check and choose), how they refer to themselves and to each other… There were a few AKBINGO! episodes where they would write e-mails for some predefined situation (like inviting a love interest to a Christmas party) and then men were surveyed to find which were the most popular, without knowing who wrote which one ~ and obviously with plenty of comments being filmed. But I think if anyone asked me, it wouldn’t be so hard to choose who I wanted to vote for. For example, Takamina has all kinds of weird things she does, like writing some letters in the middle of words in a small size for no good reason (ィ instead of イ) and finishing sentences with katakana characters (でス instead of です)… Acchan uses very small sentences, most lines with only one or two of them, and uses ridiculously long white spacing between lines (so that when viewed on a cellphone, the lines will be “below the window” and it takes a certain amount of time to scroll to them, giving the text a slow “rhythm” of sorts, as if she’s speaking) Miichan has the best vocabulary of them all, so if it’s using a complicated word / 4 kanji compound / it’s poetic, probably her. And so on…

        Like

        • That’s such an interesting and revealing idea for a theme and so true about how sometimes odd or random character usage can so much define the writer and their personality =). I hadn’t taken note of Acchan’s spacing until you now mentioned it and it’s really very much like a pause in speech creating a rhythm between phrases…..curious as to whom the men chose as most popular. I’m sort of an emoticon addict but mostly for it’s purpose of showing when something isn’t to be taken so seriously or just really to represent the text so that it’s taken in the intended context as you can read so much in a person’s face but in text alone much can be misunderstood lol I guess that’s what an emoticon is…me babbling😛.

            Hum, after said that I remembered Yuko has even more space between lines, but in her case it’s just nonsense to me. Too big. I wonder if she’s posting from a computer, or maybe an iPad, and putting enough space to see the same effect in a larger screen.
            Actually, you’re addicted to hearts ♥. You put them everywhere in front of words you want to show that you like, in representative quantities. I find it sad that they’re black though, but there’s not much to do about it… At least they’re displayed as characters and not images, otherwise it’d break the line spacing when the image is bigger than the line height.
            I think there were three e-mail episodes… In any case, Sae won all of them except the last one, when she was second (Yukirin won).

                    Ah, I can never get used to it. Being a vampire in Twilight is GREAT. There are no bad things associated with it. You don’t die if you go into the light. You have to drink blood, but it can be an almost “vegetarian” vampire diet excluding humans. The whole thing of they having to “restrain themselves” and it taking self-control is meaningless; they never die, they can take a few hundred years building up their discipline if that’s the case. And it is possible to do so to the point that a vampire can work as a doctor -_-‘ Considering how the whole story keeps revolving around Bella wanting to turn into a vampire and Edward not letting her, this “tame vampire” thing kills the whole scenario, because there’s no reason Edward wouldn’t want Bella to be a vampire. She wants to, the suffering she’d have from “turning” is nothing when you account for all the stuff that happens to her because she is not a vampire, and it’d make both of their lives a lot easier and better. Oh, but I’m talking too much already considering how I stopped reading in the middle of the second book (I think…) and barely remember the story by now…

Hmm..now becoming a vampire is most comfortable and convenient😛. I wonder how the books end as I’ve only watched the three movies so far…(bad~bad me I know for not reading the series properly xD….and so true that everyone’s life (except for Jacob’s :P) would be much better if he just turned her and the Twilight vampires are so emotional like when did this happen lol?? I remember there being a vampire in one of the Bugs Bunny cartoons and well…even he was more realistic albeit being a cartoon than the new vampires of today.

Watching these then could be like a form of study as you’ll recognize and learn more of the meanings and context of the words. I’m so sorry to hear that =(. Maybe though working during your studies may take away from your learning experience?

Oh four years isn’t too long…..Mmm with Chinese they have different dialects too with mainly Cantonese and Mandarin but I think mandarin sounds much more pleasant and attractive and you hear it much more in the movies although I find it amusing that some movies offer both Cantonese and Mandarin…..then one always appears to be a slightly badly edited martial arts film😛.

        You shouldn’t underestimate the positive influence girl~flirt can have in one’s language learning. There’s no better source of motivation for men than women. Although I’ve heard it can have funny (to others =P) side effects in languages like Japanese, where there are differences in vocabulary/expressions used by man/woman. Men who learn by speaking mostly to their girlfriends end up speaking like them =P but I’m sure that can be countered with a healthy dose of Yakuza movies (hum, maybe the easiest path would be to date Yankumi?

But watching t.v. programs early on had given me those tendencies and habits so I still say the "wrong" thing at times😛. It's old fashioned but even with the pronoun "boku" I was taught that it was rather boyish and for younger guys to speak with and it used to puzzle me whenever I'd see it used in girl's J~pop songs which occurs so often……but with male songwriters being so dominant and even more so in the past with J~pop it's almost natural to see it used without gender in mind….lol that confused me for awhile xD. You're so funny!!! I love that….u~n the yakuza style of speech knows no bounds or maybe even gender at times =). Mmm…Yankumi♥.

    Hum… The watermark doesn’t have to be big, it just has to be in the right place. Put it in the center of the scan, or at least distant from the borders, and there’s no way someone could crop it out. If it’s not in the borders, they can’t crop it, at most they can “censor” it with a black square (which is ridiculous) or try editing the watermark out, which is too difficult for anyone to bother with and it doesn’t give good results anyway… There are ways to take out watermarks from TV programs and other videos with somewhat decent results, but not for individual photos. If you do watermark, you should use something that’ll lead people here; don’t use just “mb” or the like, because with that you can prove that it’s your scan, but someone seeing that won’t get to your site (try googling “mb”…). You don’t have to write a full address though… Try using “morningberryz”, put it in the center of the scans, make it semi-transparent, make it as big as you want… like you’re already doing in some of the scans I’ve seen around here. Hum, actually, I know I saw watermarks here at some photos of your collection, but I don’t know if you’ve ever done it in scans. I think it’s a good idea.

Since moving to WP her first post here is by far the most viewed but you’d never know it as the post itself is ignored in other ways….so I may keep her second posting exclusive if that works.

There’s no good reason why you should need to know HTML just to put a link in a comment here. It’s WP’s fault; they are the ones too lazy to put a better text editor here (with a few buttons for these common commands, like they have in the page to add posts). Instead, they do a textbook example of what NOT to do in a user interface: they add a list of HTML tags below the comments box that will be useless to anyone who doesn’t already know what they are (I mean, how are you supposed to know the first one that says <a href= blah blah blah… is the right one to add a link? there's nothing saying that, or how to use it). Also, the list is useless to anyone who can read it, i.e. people who already know HTML, because they already know HTML so there's no point in telling them…

I’m waiting for the moment I can try to link something in comments so I can see if I actually understand what I’m trying to do and it’s funny, like before I usually would link something in comments quite often but then I’d just past the entire url address here and now that I’m wanting to try the html code thingy I have nothing to link.

I think the best part of the game would definitely be all of the auditions and you being able to play AkiP/Tsunku for that day :P!!

    Hey MB, I noticed you’ve done a “test” post so you might want to know… I’ve received the usual e-mail saying that you’ve done a [New Post] ~test, but the summary just says “This post is password protected. You must visit the website and enter the password to continue reading.” and visiting the link it gives me “Page not found”.

    Like

    • Oh good you’re here I was doing a test run just to see what it would look like as I’ve never done a password post before. I’m going to be posting with this feature beginning today but it will only be with a few random posts and with posts which there’s a need to keep them from public access….like you’d need to say that you’re 18. A friend scanned the Vivian Hsu nude pbs and there’s also Kanno Miho’s rare pb but I thought this the best way to share them with only those who want to view them with statement of their adult age…I’m going on honesty as I know there’ll truly be no way of knowing but it seems the only way. Others will just be random posts which I may do this with.

      I was thinking you’d need to be subscribed as then I’ll have an e~mail to send passwords to but how to get their requests for access I’m not sure. I don’t remember there being a comments box available with these types of posts or I could be mistaken…I shouldn’t have deleted it so quickly but I guess I could make another test just to see.

      Like

    • Okay no comment box there with a second test. So I think I could add a post just above these password post and there access can be requested. I can’t think of any other way as I won’t send them out without request as not everyone may want to view the post. What do you think?

Can you set the date in the post waaaaaaaaaay back so it’d be like before the Big Bang and won’t get in the way… and then every time you do one of these posts, write two posts: the real one you make password protected and send back on time, and an All Ages one with a proper summary, comments box and a link to the protected.
        In any case, I wonder what WordPress.com’s Terms of Service have to say about this. Can you actually post 18+ content here?

      Sorry to bother but I’m just curious as this appears to happen to others too with Firefox and Abobe Flash.

      On an unrelated note I was flipping through the t.v. a few weeks ago and I came across an international softball game and I couldn’t help but notice that the team from Sao Paulo had so many girls from Japan like at least three quarters of their team it seemed were Japanese….actually I’m not sure if they were technically from Japan as I didn’t hear them speak but they all had traditional Japanese given names and Japanese last names. Just got me thinking wow there must be a lot of Japanese living nearby to you?

        I’m not sure how much counts as “lot of Japanese”, I don’t know how it is in other places =P There’s probably one or two Japanese in any course / workplace you look into. Traditional names are common. Most attend Japanese classes for some time, but I haven’t met any who actually speaks without spending some time in Japan, so I think rumors of them using it at home are largely exaggerated. Of course there are some occasions where you’ll suddenly feel you teleported to Japan, like high school math competitions. And I guess it somehow happens to softball in Sao Paulo. There’s about a million and a half Japanese descendants in Brazil, and half of that are in the state of Sao Paulo, but I don’t know how many of that live in the city of Sao Paulo itself.

        • I’m not sure if you’ll actually get this message as I’m using a comment from last year but I’ll write it here anyway =P.

          A few days ago a referrer on WP stats caught my attention as it was creating a noticeable amount of traffic here but more interesting for me was the comment written by Shoujo Q who posted this on one of their H!P threads:

          ‘I stumbled upon this recently. Maimi released a photobook and no one seems to be talking about it. It’s called My Museum and it’s a photobook that she scrapbooked together herself. This is almost on the level of Sayumingdoll for awesome for me.

          Go see some high quality scans here. (It’s the first post, As much as I love this blog for it’s photos, it’s a pain in the ass to scroll through. She needs to learn to put things behind cuts.)’

          The ‘here’ is actually a link there using my Yajima Maimi tag. What I’m curious about is what does she mean by ‘She needs to learn to put things behind cuts?’ referring to the blog layout. In the past I’ve tried experimenting with different themes as this one is the only one I’ve ever used here but I can’t seem to find one which keeps the individual posts displaying correctly as things seem to get cut off or vanish altogether whenever I’ve previewed other WP themes here. My widgets also become an issue too with other themes I’ve noticed. I see many blogs where they have summary of posts instead of complete ones on their main page but I don’t know if that’d work here. In any case I do have a search bar as well as monthly archives and the tags so I’m hoping this is enough to make this blog okay to navigate. Of course if one were subscribed instead of bookmarking the main page they wouldn’t need to worry about seeing posts which they’re not interested in and it would load much faster too. I don’t think it loads slowly anymore as I have just four posts appearing at a time in addition to the one sticky post atop but I could always reduce that again but then the downfall of that would be that whenever someone searches by archives they would see less summarized posts per page load and it would take that much longer to find what they’re looking for. Sorry this is a stupidly long message.

          Oh and the thread is here:
          http://mm-bbs.org/index.php?showtopic=5198&page=61

          This is such a good thing too as I know that I can always learn to do things better as I’ve always been pretty much a blog experiment in the making as i still will say that I’ve no idea of what I’m doing.

          • SagSousuke says:

            “here” is a link to the Yajima Maimi tag? Not a direct link to the post? That’s weird for someone who is complaining about having to scroll.

            I think “putting things behind cuts” means showing only summaries in the front page. The problem probably isn’t that it takes forever to load, it’s just that if you’re going through the front page and find out you’re not interested in a given post, you have to keep scrolling down a long while until you get to the next one. There’s no shortcut, since if you go too fast or start jumping around in the scrollbar, you might miss a post or land in the middle of the next one, just to have to scroll up to its beginning.

            There’s also the added fun of having to “race” the images that are loading. You might not notice this, depending on how fast your connection is, but if you’re scrolling down fast enough through the front page, and your connection is slow enough to load all the images there (for varying degrees of “fast” and “slow”), sometimes when an image that is somewhere “above” the position you are in the page gets loaded, you’re pushed back “up” a little bit. It’s a bit hard to explain… Imagine you’re not scrolling at all, just stopped and looking at a certain height in the page. Then a image gets loaded above you in the page. The browser keeps you in the same height you were before, but everything in the page is “pushed down” to make space for the image that has just loaded above you, so it looks like to you that you went up a little bit. And the cool thing is, if you now imagine the same situation happening while you’re going down, well, to you it looks like you’re not going anywhere! Because you keep going down, but the images keep loading and pushing everything down with you. Or, to put it another way…

            Damn, I wish I knew how to make a screencast to explain this thing better…

            • Oh that’s so brilliant!!! When that began playing I just lost it…cracked up…(^q^)! One of my favorite lines from the Godfather by Pacino!!!!!! You’ve explained it perfectly, whenever a larger post is loading here if I scroll down too fast there are blanks and if I stop the page scrolls by itself with each additional image appearing =).

              Okay so I’m thinking there’s nothing really wrong with the way the site is? I’ve tried to do the summary thing with the main page but from the themes I’ve explored they don’t seem to work with everything else that is her unfortunately. But in any case just as long as this site isn’t your worst nightmare to navigate then I’ll just leave it as is.

                Oh no, it’s a pleasure to navigate. Really, the only thing to do now is wait for Firefox for Android to step up to your blog’s standards. It crashes every time with all the images, even in individual posts. Nothing you can or should do about that though. It works fine in Chrome (remember, talking about Android versions…), so I keep it around for now. I hope I’ll be able to delete it one day, don’t like Chrome. But the blog is fine. Also, I don’t see what the big deal is about making blogs easier to navigate to specific posts. That’s kind of a solved problem by now, haven’t these people heard of Google? Try adding “site:morningberryz48.wordpress.com” (all together like this, but without the quotes) and some other keywords in Google. Problem solved.

            • And to add to your analogy, WP has this endless scrolling option for your site where if you reach the end of the ‘last’ post appearing on your main page it just keeps opening the next set of posts and goes on and on…..and on and on. I turned that off though as it did feel like the site was ‘pulling me back in’ =O…where you couldn’t make it stop lol. As of today the site has reached 88 GB in size so I guess finding anything here can be sort of a challenge xD. I do think with the search box, archives and tags though that it should be okay, it was just worrisome that I read that comment on that thread and was thinking….maybe there’s a better way.
