request re-uploads here!

NOTE: this post is only for people to request re-uploads from the following posts: 1, 2, 3-A, 3-B, 4-A and 4-B.

i feel bad that i took so long making these series of posts, because by the time i finished the last post all the other links were already dead. :[ so i'm offering to re-upload anything people were interested in! to prevent links from dying again, i will try to use mediafire this time for most files.

more specifically, any PV's under 100 mb will be uploaded to mediafire (though i will provide a mirror link from another site if you would like me to, in which case i would appreciate it if you could list the sites you like to download from). anything over 100 mb i will probably upload to sendspace, unless you list other sites that you would prefer me to use.

this is for a limited time, so better ask now rather than later! request away!

my 21st uploads (PART FOUR-B a.k.a. the last part)!

more than a month after i started this series of posts, i am finally completing the project. i apologize for taking so long, guys! but in my defense, i posted 85 videos complete with previews and comments (even though most of the links are dead now ;_;). i probably could have done more if it weren't for the commenting bit, though.

please check out PART FOUR-A for more videos! ^_^ unfortunately, the links of all the other ones (parts ONE though THREE) have expired. this is why i am now using mediafire, as they do not delete your links. i WILL re-up if you ask, see the note at the bottom of this post for details.

without further ado, here is the last of them! ARTISTS 19-21:

19. W (double you) ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
20. YUI ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
21. ZONE ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

(haha, coincidentally all of these artists' names are written in uppercase)

# of ♥ = number of included PV's by that artist

PART FOUR-B: artists 19-21Collapse )

OMG I'M DONE! O_O for a while there it felt like i'd be doing this project forever. not that i won't do anything like it again, i just won't attempt to write comments about this many PV's, post after post...yeah. *dies*

ahem. well, i hope you were all able to find something you liked, or at least tried something new. ^_^ my taste is not exactly indie or unique (and okay, it's a bit predictable sometimes), but i guarantee you'll have fun with a lot of it.

IMPORTANT!!! most of my older sendspace links in the previous parts of this project have finally died. :[ i will re-upload upon request, as long as they're from the 21st uploads series. when you request, do so on this post, NOT on the older posts, because i don't always check older posts. i'll be uploading them to MF unless i can't (MF has a limit of 100mb).

my 21st uploads (PART FOUR-A)

this is it! my 21 favorite artists post is coming to a close. please be sure to check out PART ONE, PART TWO, PART THREE-A and PART THREE-B as i've noticed the links still seem to be active.

this time i've uploaded PV's to either sendspace or mediafire, depending on the size of the file. this part includes ARTISTS 16-21:

16. tommy february6 ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
17. tommy heavenly6 ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥?
18. utada hikaru ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

# of ♥ = number of included PV's by that artist

PART FOUR-A: artists 16-18Collapse )

i profusely, profusely apologize in advance for taking so long to get this out. truthfully, i've long since had all the PV's uploaded...it's the comments about each of the videos that takes me forever to do! ><

in fact, i've been doing comments on and off for about a week and a half. after finishing comments of 1 or 2 videos i'd get like a writers block...and i'm not writing like a friggen essay or anything! how sad. in any case, i realized that i'm leaving tomorrow (i'm going to texas for a conference) and i won't be back until the 18th, so i freaked and thought, "OMG, i'm not gonna finish the stupid post until i get back in mid-march" and something magic happened - i finished the rest of the comments in like 5 minutes.

so they're a bit rushed (starting from tommy's "heavy starry chain"), but it's better than nothing. PART FOUR-B (the official final part) will come after i get back on the 18th of march. i might be able to work on it during my trip, but i won't promise anything because i don't want to disappoint. again, i have all the videos uploaded, i just need to do the comments...which takes 50x longer than uploading does.

alright, enjoy guys! feel free to share the links with anybody, because i ♥ downloads!

my 21st uploads (PART THREE-B)

for those of you that looked through PART THREE already, this part does not contain any new PV's. i simply decided to separate PART THREE into two posts. i noticed that the amount of youtube previews were slowing down loading time, even for me (and i have a fast connection). so i thought it might be better to split it into two posts. the rest can be found at PART THREE-A.

i am still uploading PV's for PART FOUR (the last part, which i may also have to split into two), please hold on a bit longer! ^^; it's just taking a while because i have to be considerate of slowing down my fiancé's connection when i upload. it's coming, though! also, i might use mediafire for the rest of my uploads, hope that's okay! i can upload 10 things at a time there, so that'll make things go faster.

this part contains ARTISTS 13-15:

13. otsuka ai ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
14. sweets ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
15. tamaki nami ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

# of ♥ = number of PV's by that artist
( ♥ ) = currently uploading

there weren't a lot of downloads from these last few artists. :[ please consider downloading more! i highly recommend all of these artists, really! even if you don't want to download anything, try sharing the links with your friends in forums or something. more downloads keep me happy and motivated to upload more (and commenting helps that too)!

PART THREE-B: artists 13-15Collapse )

check out PART ONE, PART TWO and PART THREE-A if you haven't already! ^^

my 21st uploads (PART THREE-A)

edit: i've split this part into two!! how can you split a part? simple, the rest can now be found in PART THREE-B! i felt the need to split it to try to help anybody that may have problems loading so many youtube previews on one page.

for previous uploads (and an explanation of what i'm uploading and why), see PART ONE and PART TWO. this part contains ARTISTS 11 & 12:

11. misc. H!P groups ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
12. nakashima mika ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

# of ♥ = number of PV's by that artist
( ♥ ) = currently uploading

the further i go down the list the less i seem to be able to narrow down my favorite PV's. so it took me longer to make this post because (as you can see by the number of hearts above) i uploaded more PV's than usual. ^^;

PART THREE-A: artists 11 & 12Collapse )

p.s. i apologize for some of my files not being named properly (capitalization, decorative symbols such as the arrows in nami's daitan ni PV), i'm working on going through those and fixing them accordingly.

IMPORTANT: on PART ONE i had accidentally messed up the links for the two jiriri kiteru videos. ;-; but they're fixed now! so if you tried to download them before and couldn't, you should be able to now. do it quick before they expire!

links: if you have no idea what i mean by H!P / hello! project, see this. also, i've slightly changed the way i judge quality...i found that just "good" and "okay" were too general for me to categorize things as, so i'm now and - (sort of like school grades). for more details on this, see my FAQ.

my 21st uploads (PART TWO)

for more information about this series of posts, see PART ONE. this part includes ARTISTS 6-10:

6. country musume (ni konno to fujimoto) ♥ ♥
7. ºc-ute ♥ ♥
8. do as infinity ♥ ♥
9. hinoi team ♥ ♥
10. morning musume ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

edit: added 4 more morning musume PV's, have 3 more coming. also, got the .avi version of HINOI TEAM's "now and forever" PV up thanks to scarreddragon!

edit 2: 3 more momusu PV's added!

happy 21st birthday to me~!! (PART ONE)

yes, today is my birthday! yes, it's on the same day as kawase tomoko / tommy february6 / tommy heavenly6, and YES it's the most awesome day in the world. xD

in celebration, i'm going to go out to a restaurant with my fiancé, then go buy liquor and drink lots. but in celebration that interests YOU guys more, i'm going to be uploading my favorite PV's by 21 of my favorite artists! originally, i was going to upload 21 PV's...but it's too hard to narrow it down to that many. i even had trouble narrowing down the 21 artists.

since uploading takes time and i don't want my birthday to be long gone by the time i finish, i'll be uploading in parts. this part includes ARTISTS 1-5:

1. abe natsumi ♥
2. ayaka ♥ ♥
3. berryz koubou ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
4. boa ♥
5. bump of chicken ♥ ♥

# of ♥ = number of PV's by that artist
( ♥ ) = currently uploading

previews using youtube, or links to previews on veoh (because i get errors embedding veoh videos...anyone know how to fix?) if not available on youtube.

PART ONE: artists 1-5Collapse )

edit: added 5 more PV's (from berryz koubou and bump of chicken)!

NANA-related PV's + HINOI TEAM

i've decided my new way to show previews is to use youtube and/or veoh!! for those of you who don't know veoh, it's works just like youtube...except they haven't been sold to a major corporation, so they're not deleting copyrighted material left an right, and not using secret methods to prevent copyrighted material from being uploaded. :p

edit: i'm having problems embedding veoh videos, so youtube it is for now. ^^;

NANA anime-related PV'sCollapse )

my favorites are ANNA's rose and OLIVIA's wish. i like a little pain also, but for what it reminds me of.

NANA movie-related PV'sCollapse )

both of mika's songs here are a must! they're not necessarily the best songs to represent BLACKSTONES, but they're great songs all on their own.

edit: added mika's hitoiro PV! ^_^

2 HINOI TEAM PV's (para para versions)Collapse )

i'll upload everything i have from HINOI TEAM and dream (as per request ;D) next time!

5 jpop PV's; 4 h!p PV's + 1 making of

these are five PV's that i've never seen uploaded on any other jpop communities. hopefully someone will be glad i upped them. :] also, i did screen caps today!! mostly because i feel guilty for dropping them somewhere along the way. ^^; it's just faster to do links-only. maybe i should look for someone to share this community with, to help me take screen captures and also to share their own PV collection. O_O

that's if anybody would be interested. probably not. oh well.

[PV] boa - rock with you
type: mpg size: 152.1 mb quality: good!
comments: i'm not really a fan of boa or her singing style (then why do i keep downloading her? maybe to try to figure it is other people see in her), but this is the first song of hers i've come across that i really loved. it's got an edge to it i didn't expect from her. and i love that she's all over the place! rock it, boa! if you had sticked to this style, i would like you more. also, the set where the dance takes place reminds me of a set from jet li's unleashed movie. i looked it up and there doesn't seem to be any relation. but there's random martial arts at the end of this video, so i'm note entirely convinced it's just a coincidence.

[PV] folder 5 - magical eyes
type: avi size: 40.9 mb quality: iffy
comments: i don't know if it's the quality of the video or if things went wrong starting from production, but as you can see from the screen captures, the lighting coupled with the white outfits doesn't work very well. i uploaded these two videos (see next video) because folder 5 rarely gets shared around in communities. and it's even more rare to find PV's. although i admit i don't really like this PV at all, when i closed my eyes i realized that it actually is a nice song. worth a download? that's up to you!

[PV] folder 5 - stay...
type: mpg size: 42.4 mb quality: so-so / okay
comments: i like this PV of theirs much better! mostly because it's easier on the eyes. hey, if i wasn't all about the visuals i wouldn't be addicted to PV's! it's a cute song, has some nice moves and pretty close-ups. it's a tad bit simplistic for my taste (and i wish the video quality was a bit better), but considering they're not very popular, i think it's acceptable. :] if you've been curious about these girls (like i'd been, this and the PV above are my first sample of folder 5), then give it a click!

[PV] otsuka ai - kingyo hanabi
type: mpg size: 35.1 mb quality: so-so / okay
comments: i might have wrote that the quality was "okay," except that this is an otsuka ai PV. she's extremely popular, i'm certain there's a better quality version out there somewhere. unfortunately, i don't have it. ><; and that makes me sad, because this is a very pretty song with very pretty PV, and i'm certain it would be one of my favorites if i could only fight a higher quality version! don't like my i-love-this-PV-so-much-i-want-it-in-perfect-quality behavior fool you though, it's definitely worth downloading if you like otsuka ai and you haven't seen this PV before. get it now!

[PV] ueto aya - afuresou na ai daite
type: avi size: 34.3 mb quality: good
comments: i'm surprised how infrequently people upload ueto aya PV's. she has a good voice and an interesting style. unfortunately, this isn't my favorite song by her, but all the pretty things to look at make it up to me! this PV is filled with pretty, refreshing visuals. and i have the feeling that it's the type of song that will grow on me, too. anyway, there isn't enough ueto going around, so you should take it while you can!

since the h!p PV's i uploaded were from answering requests, i don't have any screen shots, sorry. ^^; but if you want recommendations, definitely go for ambitious! if you haven't heard it before. it's a must!

[PV] country musume (ni konno to fujimoto) - shining itoshiki anata
type: avi size: 49.9 mb quality: good!
comments: okay, i lied! xD i did have screen captures for this one, but only because i had taken them as a quality check for the person i uploaded it for. if i had known i'd be making this post, i would have chosen better shots. :[ sorry! anyway, my hello! project tastes have recently started expanding into country musume (how could i have resisted another group featuring konkon and mikitty for so long?) and biyuuden. this song is not uwaki-caliber, but it certainly is very sweet and the PV is a big step up from the cg-background! they're wearing very cute outfits, i approve. if you're just wanting to sample country musume first, you should definitely look up uwaki na honey pie first (for the song more than the PV...though i think it's cute too)! this is a mellow american 50's type song, and i don't want you to get the idea that they're always like this. but if you're open to what i described, try it! :]

[PV] morning musume - ambitious! yashinteki de iijan
[PV] morning musume - ambitious! yashinteki de iijan (dance shot ver.)
[PV] morning musume - osaka koi no uta (dance shot ver.)
[MAKING] morning musume - namida tomaranai houkago

also, NEW AND IMPROVED PV LIST!! not really new and improved, just thought that would catch your attention. xD;; i added about 45 PV's that weren't there before! take a look, and feel free to request (as long as you don't go over-board)!
