will be a hard act to follow, but already 2009 is off to a great start!
- NEWS Winter Party Diamond
(1/1): Celeb Party!!
Notes: Great show even though our seats were way in the back on the 1st stands. Teggo is adorable!
- thebeck's visit
(12/25-1/4): What crazy adventures this time?
Notes: Concerts, good food, loads of fun. We went on the pilgrimage from Heikei Chichi-ue sama. A lot of walking... Good times.
- Tackey's Ai Kakumei Event
(1/5): Special Event in Odaiba. Yup, first train out as the sun rises...
Notes: I'm getting way too old for this... I hate waking up before sunrise. I got to shake hands with my aniki at least.
- Gackt Live Tour 2008-2009
(1/6): Requiem et Reminiscence II! I've been wanting to see him live forever.
Notes: Gackt fans are not what I thought they would be. I was in line with 2 70-year old obaa-sans!! Overall, it was great people watching. The concert left me feeling confused...
- Takizawa Kakumei
(1/18): I get to see Tackey on my mom's birthday... Happy Birthday!!
Notes: Whale ballerinas, the stargate, no plot. Ahhhh definitely a show put on by Tackey. It was nice, but confusing...
(2/8-2/12): Never thought I'd say this... I'm going to Korea for my birthday.
Notes: Did a lot of shopping and eating. I miss Chae Chae already T-T I can say that I didn't have a bad time.
- Koyama's Butai
(2/15): A stage play based on the movie, Phone Booth. That must mean Koyama in a suit again.
Notes: Good seats and they did their best turning this into a play. There were parts that were lagging, but overall I liked it. I loved it when that "Chinese" tourist said that he looked like NEWS's Koyama-kun.
- Amuro Namie's Best Fiction
(2/22): Fumika got FC tickets! I've dreamed of going to one of her concerts!
Notes: This was probably the most normal concert I went to where there were guys and girls. The guys were kinda weird though. No one danced. I wonder why I was surprised. I didn't care :P
- Tsubasa's Dance & Rock '09
(3/1): First time I've gone out of my way for a weekend for a concert. Nagoya's nice.
Notes: Amazing as usual. Seriously Tsubasa has super strong pheromones. I haven't had that much fun in a while. And then the surprise at Nagoya castle...
- Endless Shock 2009
(3/6): Curse you flumpool! I was forced to go to this show last minute because I took the day off and didn't want to waste the day.
Notes: Endless bore...
- Romeo & Juliet
(3/16): Decided to go at the last minute. How many times have I seen Shakespeare in Japan?
Notes: Best show I've ever seen at the Globe, hands down. Ueda and that girl made me cry. I never cry! Loved what they did by extending the set out into the audience.
- Takizawa Enbujou '09
(4/6): Almost a year to the day from the first time I went!
Notes: 4th row, right next to the hanamichi! Also happens to be the row right by the trap door... Got hit in the face with paper butterflies and really enjoyed Tackey's kabuki.
- Kansai Adventure 2009
(4/29-5/6): Hanshin Tiger's game! SHIGA! Fun times to be had! It's good to go home once in a while.

(5/25): Sex addicted university student? Bring it on!

(7/13): Tsubasa's butai about the life of Gabriel Channel.
Notes: The costumes were gorgeous, but if you were there to see Tsubasa... you'll be disappointed. HIGASHIYAMA-sama showed up...
- BECK Special Supporter
: I applied to be an extra in the BECK movie. It will be an all night affair.
Notes: What an amazing experience. Luck was on my side and I was able to see all the main actors up close. I didn't catch a cold either!
- KAT-TUN @Sendai
(8/2): I can't even tell you why I'm going to see them a 3rd time...

Notes: I wouldn't mind living out there. This town is so full of character!

(8/16): I really don't know what this event is about actually...
