insomnia

When I can’t sleep, you get more lyric translations. I just put up “Surround”, everyone’s favorite tune. By the way, it doesn’t make any sense. :D
Update: Still couldn’t sleep, so translated “Rainbow” as well.
In other news, I went and plugged this site on clammbon’s official BBS (where Mr. Daisuke himself has been spotted lately); two humans replied, including a clammbon.com staff member! Actual clammbon people agree: dramatickers.com is “subarashii”. :D :D :D

ten, ten, ten…

Well, I guess my local Kinokuniya was lying, because now I can’t get the new album there without special ordering it and waiting for several weeks. Instead I’ve got my old roommate-buddy bringing it to me straight from Japan when he visits next week. Unfortunately, I have to sit tight until then… I went and put up the lyrics for “George” from Dramatic, which I apparently translated a long time ago and never bothered to post.

prettifying

I went and cleaned up a lot of the HTML and CSS that was getting on my nerves. Some things look nicer now.
There’s still a ton to do, concerning both design and content. I want to automate the news and discography/lyrics pages with Python or something. I want to add information about clammbon DVDs. Of course, I want to translate the rest of the lyrics. Most of all, I want to listen to “ten,”!
My local Kinokuniya claims they’ll have “ten,” on or near its release date. I hope to get it as soon as possible, and post my impressions here. The world is incredibly fortunate to have a sixth clammbon album on the way…

“ten,”

Amazon Japan has some more info on “ten,” including the distinctively-clammbon super-simple cover art, while Yes Asia has a track listing. As it turns out, the second disc is just a re-mix of the first disc. Of course, that’s not as cool as two whole discs of original songs, but it’s certainly better than just one disc. This album was produced by clammbon member Mito himself! I have a feeling this is going to be a great one. Mark your calendars for March 2!

“ten,”

Well… only about fourteen months since my last update. The announcement of a brand new two-disc album coming March 2nd was enough to get me to update, though. The new album is called “ten,” and is apparently already finished recording, according to the band in their new year’s greeting at the official site.
One imagination song, “tourist on the mirai’n”, has been translated.

imagination

I was researching some clammbon facts at Amazon Japan and came across an entry for clammbon’s next album! Slated for a November 19 release, its title is imagination. No further details are listed, but whoa, exciting!

Open

Well, this site is somewhat open. I’m simultaneously trying to put together a design that I won’t tear apart later for its failure to meet standards and trying to gather all of the clammbon info I have to actually fill the site. My first priority is getting all of the first album translated into English and set up for easy reading here in the albums section. Until then, welcome to the site.
