At last...the quartet meets up to record together!
 
Episode #14 blog


kissfromthedarkness - Radio Program - 『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Page 4 ZnlDDFd




HARUNA: It's been so longー!

TOMOMI: I'm so happy!!

HARUNA: Yayー!!

RINA: Has it been about two and a half months?

HARUNA: Yeahー

RINA: We've never gone this long without seeing each otherー

HARUNA: This was the first time!

RINA: I'm so happy!!

HARUNA: Since the emergency declaration has been lifted for the time being, we have decided to record Catch up in a new format. The four members got together for the first time in forever. Now we don't have to worry about slight lag...

TOMOMI: When we were recording remotely, if someone talked over another person who was talking, one of them would be muted. There were a lot of times when we'd go, "What? What did you just say?" so I'm glad we were able to meet back up...

HARUNA: We only recently discovered that we knew we could of course do it.

RINA: I'm glad we got to use remote software.

HARUNA: Yeah. Well then, we've gotten together for the first time in forever and will be delivering a noisy episode.

(*Following a song)

MAMI: I'm glad HARU-chan looked so happy introducing that song today.

RINA: She's filled with happiness.

HARUNA: This really is great. I'm happy that the four of us got together to record.

HARUNA: Now, onto this segment... 「Living in the home de... Aenai, Tsumori ni Tsumott...Genki datta? (Living in the homeで… 会えない、つもりにつもった…元気だった?)」 [Note: This doesn't really make sense, which the other members also comment on. If I had to try translating it, it might be something like, "Living in the home and...I thought we couldn't see each other...Have you been well?" but that's also not really close lol. It's supposed to be a play on the song titles "Living in the city" and "Awanai Tsumori no, Genki de ne")

TOMOMI: I don't understand that...

RINA: It's really jumbled.

MAMI: What's mixed with what?

TOMOMI: I could understand it if I saw it in writing, but I have no idea what that means just by hearing it.

MAMI: There are too many elements to it...

HARUNA: In one of the previous episodes we used the title 「STAY HOME HOME-TE」 to describe how the four of us spend our time during quarantine...and we've somehow been given names.

「Home cook HARUNA」
「Ukulelist TOMO」
「Shredder MAMI」
「YouTuber RINA」

MAMI: There are no changes to the latter half...

HARUNA: I talked about how I now cook for myself more.

TOMOMI: I learned to play the main theme of "Animal Crossing" on the ukulele...

MAMI: (I bought a paper shredder) and am getting rid of a lot of documents that I couldn't dispose of easily.

RINA: I started a YouTube channel.

HARUNA: Since we finally got together, I wonder if we should do a briefing session on the little things.

『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Episode 14

•The episode begins with what is talked about here. After HARU says that they should do a recap on the little things that happened during the two-and-a-half-month quarantine, she then says, "By the way, this is news from our [program] director Yoshioka-san: Sega announced on its 60th anniversary that they are releasing a handheld Game Gear Micro to mark its 30th anniversary. I don't really know what this is all about, though (laughs)." MAMI asks if that means that it's a game, and TOMO says that it's more like a Game Boy. They're also surprised that Sega has been around for 60 years.

•Getting back to news about the band: RINA says that, like a lot of people, she started cleaning up around the house when quarantine first started. When she started tidying up her closets, she found matching t-shirts that the band bought at a supermarket and that they had worn back when they played street shows on Shiroten Street [in Osaka]. TOMO and MAMI go, "The one with the skull on it?" (it's this one ). TOMO describes it and says how there's lots of threads coming out of it. RINA goes, "We really had no money at all and it was cheap, cool, and kind of flashy." They also recall that they cut them up with scissors to give them a damaged look (RINA: "We were playing street shows in worn-out clothes!"). RINA also recalls how they washed them so much that they shrank a bit, and when that happened they pinned rabbit pins on them. She says that she didn't want to throw these shirts away so she's taken them with her whenever she's moved. When she took them out this time they were still all clean and she was getting all emotional by herself at home (MAMI: "That's quite emotional"). TOMO says that she can clearly remember that time in their lives, and also says, "I remember it now, but I had forgotten all about it until now."

•MAMI also talks about nostalgic things, and how she found some old lyrics while shredding papers. These lyrics (from unreleased songs) were from around the time when they started writing their own music. When she looked at them, she started feeling embarrassed (also, she filed these away rather than shred them). She also mentions how she found lyrics to a song called "Don't Stop" that they wrote right around when the band first formed. This whole experience for her was pretty emotional.

•HARU says that she too was cleaning up and found pictures of her when she was little. She also found a picture of them taken when they played the ESAKA MUSE venue in Osaka while wearing those skull shirts that RINA found (pretty sure it was this show). She too says that this was pretty emotional, and that she doesn't know why that picture was among her childhood pictures. She also mentions how their makeup back then was completely different. "That, our skull-print shirts that we thought was so rock-like, and mini skirts...that was pretty crazy." They then recall other things they wore like pink and black armwarmers, thick belts with studs, knee-high lace-up shoes. MAMI says that they were in a dance school so their outfits were reflective of that--a kind of a hybrid style. TOMO goes, "That was probably a fashion no one else was doing. They never thought of doing something like that. It was so tacky."

•TOMO also talks about finding old things like music scores such as when they performed with Chisato Moritaka . She found a lot of scores for songs they performed for TV shows, which felt very nostalgic for her. RINA says that it's hard to throw away things like that, and that you have the same feelings for it when you find it years later. HARU then talks about how they've all hard to start spending more time on the computer after quarantine began and her computer got a little too full, so she's also been trying to tidy up her pictures on there as well. The band laughs and says that sounds awful. She further says that the pictures have just continue to increase so she recently realized that she has around 10 years' worth of them to go through, like pictures from their first ever tour in 2008 when they went to the US (MAMI: "No way!") and pictures from her old flip phone. She too says that is pretty emotional. She also says, "I say I'm tidying them up, but I've only gone through and looked back on them." RINA mentions that they all wore the same outfits every day when they did that US tour. TOMO goes, "Well, thinking back on it now, our casual clothes were way too lame."

•HARU sums it up by saying how all of them discovered the same kind of things at home during quarantine (RINA: "It really gives you the sense that we've been together for 14 years"). She also says that they can easily throw away recent stuff but not this older stuff. RINA says that that was a special period of time. HARU also says, "No matter how much time passes, our formation days will always have the most impact on us. Like, we musn't get rid of these memories. We'll always feel that way." MAMI says, "We were super serious back then, but now we think of it being an amusing time."

•After "Living in the city" plays, the band reads a message from a soon-to-be 36-year-old female listener. She says that hearing about how TOMO said that she wants to take a solo trip after turning 30 made her remember that she too wanted to do that. She wasn't able to, but has traveled solo to see SCANDAL play in many places. She also says that SCANDAL is their favorite first musical artist that they discovered on their own, they started playing the guitar because of SCANDAL and is in a cover band, and that they now have a lot more fun things in their life after entering their 30s and discovering SCANDAL for the first time five years ago. They also ask HARU, who was the first person in the band to hit their 30s, if there's anything new she's started doing [since hitting her 30s]. HARU says that her 30s have been fun, and she's had more time to spare compared to her 20s. She also mentions that she took a solo trip to New York when she turned 30, got a dog, and started studying English pronunciation. She sums it up by saying that she started doing a lot of new things in her 30s--she wants to take in all kinds of things. TOMO says that she's become proactive, and HARU agrees and also says so many things that were right in front her in her 20s, but she didn't understand herself that well back then. "It's not about having a mindset to learn about things--it's about enjoying these things. Like, when I went to New York, I wished I had been able to speak a little more English. And this year, since we had planned to go overseas, I thought I'd try a little harder with my pronunciation. I want to learn what I can give back to the band--my job--and that's what I want my life to be. That's how I've been living my life lately. Your 30s is a great time." TOMO says she's looking forward to it. HARU also asks TOMO where she'd want to take a solo trip to; she says Morocco. She likes Moroccan interior designs and would like to see them in person. HARU also realizes that this day they're recording this episode is the first time they've all seen each other since both MAMI and TOMO turned 30 back in May (TOMO: "Nice to meet you! It's the 30-year-old me"). MAMI says that she'd like to challenge herself a lot. She also says that in her 20s she wished that she studied more when she was a student, but in her 30s she does want to study/learn more.

What it ended up being was a Battery Killer  LOL (the colors were AMAZING for a handheld in the time it came out, though)

I know that feel. My 2TB SSD that I intend to use as my game drive is still on backorder  Tears of Joy

How do SCANDAL songs come into being? Talking about how they each write songs!
 
Episode #15 blog


kissfromthedarkness - Radio Program - 『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Page 4 LZS4Mbn




For this episode we had each of the members talk about how they make songs and their secrets of music production.

MAMI: I write music, but I also like making clothes using a sewing machine. So, during quarantine I tried making a satin shirt.

But it was difficult to handle and you can only get rid of wrinkles by putting a cloth over it and ironing it at a low temperature, so I sprayed it completely with water. For songs, I use my head/concentrate more than I do when making clothes, and my ability to concentrate breaks in about two hours...

I'll be like, "Ah, I can't do this anymore." So if I want to take a break, I need to be able to slack off for at least double the time I spent focusing. If not, I no longer feel motivated.

RINA: I see. Like, if you feel really motivated, start making music on the computer, and concentrate on it for two hours, you'd then take a break for four hours?

MAMI: That's right.

RINA: So you're the type to make music by flipping on a switch?

MAMI: I think switching it on is important, but I can make clothes all in one go.

RINA: As for me, I'll have the mentality like, "Okay, I'll be able to make this on this day"--or rather, I'll feel like I'll be able to make it. I haven't been able to analyze this cycle myself, but there times when words will just come flowing to me.

I'll aim for that time and keep switching myself on when I get into a groove.

It's not tiring at all--it's actually fun. But on the other hand, there are also times when I'm not able to write anything for a month. I might be the type that concentrates on finishing something when it seems that I'm able to do it.

HARUNA: When you're fast, you're fast. We're like, "You did this amount (of lyrics) in a day?"

MAMI: I can't catch up. Like, RINA will write the lyrics to a one-chorus demo, but she'll also write them for the second chorus so I'll be like, "I'm not able to write [the music for] the second chorus right now..."

TOMOMI: I save up lyrics when they come to me, but for music I can't do it unless I want to do it, and sometimes I can't even do it when both the lyrics and music come to me at the same time.

RINA: What about "Living in the city"?

TOMOMI: The lyrics came a little earlier, but the melody also came around the same time as well as the chorus. I can do things I like, like making dried flower swag and candles endlessly, and I can also play "Animal Crossing" without sleeping. I went to fans' islands and got a lot of materials for DIYs. My island was made with the help of the fans.

MAMI: You're grateful, aren't you? (*All laugh)

TOMOMI: I am grateful. Thank you so much.

HARUNA: I'm also the type to do things suddenly. I'm not one to normally save things up. I'm more likely to focus on it all at once when I think, "I need to do this now." That applies to songs, but also for the period of time I was making earrings. I suddenly had a moment when I was like, "I'll make earrings," and started doing so.

I've read that a lot of famous scientists got a sudden insight to a problem while taking a walk in the park. Leaving your thoughts on the back burner, so to speak, while changing your surroundings seems to be the key. Also, walking or jogging sort of resets your internal metronome. Any melody that suddenly comes to mind will rest more gently on a natural rhythm. Of course, once I finish this coffee, this might really sound stupid, so I better hurry up and hit the send button.



Friendship. Effort. Victory.

In "her" magazine vol 2, Haruna said that she told herself "I'll write one song this year" and that's how "NEON TOWN ESCAPE" came about in 2019  kissfromthedarkness - Radio Program - 『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Page 4 1f602 That song is pretty dope so hopefully she'll write more than one song this year in 2020!

『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Episode 15


kissfromthedarkness - Radio Program - 『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Page 4 Z30ClpL
kissfromthedarkness - Radio Program - 『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Page 4 Boo4y8k





•The episode opens with the band saying they're again recording all together + eating Meiji snacks. This reminds HARU of something and she mentions how their fans seem to now associate Catch up with Meiji Apollo chocolates (i.e. they hear the words "Catch up" and they immediately think of the chocolates).

•After "Living in the city" plays, they start their "STAY HOME HOME-TE" segment. RINA reads a message from a listener who likes to make bracelets and necklaces as a hobby. They had only been able to make simple ones, but they improved so much during quarantine that they're now able to make them at a level where they could sell their stuff. They've been using RINA's YouTube videos and SCANDAL's live DVDs as inspiration and encouragement as they're making their jewelry. They ask the band if they have to psych themselves up when it comes to making songs, or if they just relax and let songs come about naturally. What follows is what is talked about here. RINA also mentions that the lyrics for "Platform Syndrome" and "OVER" were pretty much both completed in one day.

•Next, they mention their livestream to be held on August 21st, their 14th anniversary. To anyone who needs reassurance: RINA mentions they're setting up a way that fans overseas can also watch it--it's a livestream that anyone around the world can watch.

•TOMO reads the next message from a listener who is, not surprisingly, a teacher. One of their "HOME-TE"'s is a paper shredder (MAMI: "This is basically me!"), and they hold "shredding parties" occasionally (MAMI: "It's a one-person party").

•They then announce a new segment: "A.D.A.N.A. Corner" (Nickname Corner, which they first talked about doing during episode 12). It's stylized after, of course, their "A.M.D.K.J." song. The segment is about listeners' nicknames and how they got them. HARU reads a message from a male listener who got the nickname "Kinoko" (mushroom) in their first year of high school. "It's not because I loved mushrooms; it's because I had a mushroom-shaped hairstyle...actually, that's not it either." The band is surprised by the latter sentence (TOMO & RINA: "I thought that was the reason..."). The real reason was because he and his friends were asking each other if they were "Team Kinoko no Yama" or "Team Takenoko no Sato." The listener said Kinoko, and his friends were like, "Eh, you're Kinoko?" To this day he's still called that by a few people. RINA says that she could totally imagine that naming process happening between guys. MAMI says that she thought it could have come from a mushroom-style haircut, and TOMO and RINA say so too. They also say that "Kinoko" is a cute nickname.

•MAMI reads the next message from a listener who got the nickname "Anpanman " in elementary school because they were told their face looked like the character. Since then, and even now as a graduate student they're still told that their face looks like Anpanman's, and have been convinced that it does. While wondering "What does it mean to have a face that looks like Anpanman's?!", it has now completely become part of their identity. HARU says she's interested to know what they do look like. RINA says that it sounds like they're a good sport about it.

•TOMO reads the next message from a listener who got the nickname "Hiromi" from a male classmate in elementary school after letting her classmates know she loves cats. She asked the classmate why, and he said, "You like cats, don't you?" She said she still didn't get it, and he said, "It's like the female version of Neko Hiroshi ." The listener also wrote in her message, "Well, it's fine to be called any name by the boy you like." The band laughs and goes, "That's so cute!" RINA says that it has a lovey-dovey feel to it. RINA then starts talking about something that happened in elementary school that this message reminded her of. In the first or second grade she used to use the pronoun "uchinaa" to refer to herself, which she says is common in the Kansai area where she grew up in (but in standard Japanese, "uchi" means "[your own] home"). During a field trip she was talking to the boy she liked and used that pronoun, and the boy was like, "What? Then just go home." That really hurt her and she stopped referring to herself in that pronoun. RINA then laughs and says, "That's what this story reminded me of!" She was shocked that that happened, but also glad because he--her crush--talked to her.

•The band closes out the episode after "A.M.D.K.J." plays and goes over the segments covered today as well as asks listeners to keep sending in their messages for their many different segments.

A special project for TOMOMI: "Quiz time! TOMOrocco!" Who will shine as champion!?
 
Episode #16 blog


kissfromthedarkness - Radio Program - 『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Page 4 UkqIRAB




The band held a special project for TOMOMI, who said that she'd like to take a solo trip to Morocco during her 30th year if possible, called, "Quiz time! TOMOrocco!"

HARUNA: Let's try a new project this week.

All: What is it?

HARUNA: Here it is..."Quiz time! TOMOrocco!"

TOMOMI: What is that...I don't understand. What does that mean?

HARUNA: Let's get to it today!

MAMI & RINA: ...eh? Is this okay?

TOMOMI: I'm really worried.

HARUNA: TOMO recently turned 30, and she said that she wants to take a solo trip. She wants to go to Morocco, so the special project for TOMO-chan is called "Quiz time! TOMOrocco!"

TOMOMI: Hold on a sec! I never thought it'd be taken this far.

MAMI: ...this will be a good episode just with TOMO-chan.

RINA: Good work.

MAMI: Thanks so much.

TOMOMI: Wait a second; I don't know what to do.

HARUNA: Only TOMO's going to do it? MAMI and RINA, you guys have to participate too.

RINA: Ehー?

MAMI: Ehー? Us too!?

RINA: I don't know anything about Morocco.

TOMOMI: Do you mean that this is quiz about Morocco?

HARUNA: That's right. After you answer this quiz about Morocco and deepen your knowledge of it, we'll have you go on a solo trip to Morocco.

TOMOMI: Well, I'm grateful, but I have no prior knowledge of it.

HARUNA: You three will participate, and the person who's crowned the champ will be given a prize.

TOMOMI: Is it related to Morocco??

MAMI: A prize related to Morocco...? I wonder.

HARUNA: The three of you will compete for first place, but perhaps MAMI and RINA won't need the prize...at any rate, it says [on the program script], "Please fight fair and square."

MAMI: This is way too mysterious.

RINA: Well, let's go ahead and try it.

HARUNA: There are quite a few questions.

TOMOMI: Can we get through them in this one episode?

HARUNA: Yes.

RINA: That was very firm.

HARUNA: We have no choice.

TOMOMI: I hope it's fun...let's hear it.

HARUNA: Let's do it..."Quiz time! TOMOrocco!" There will be three options per question.

RINA: All right, maybe we can do this.

HARUNA: Question 1. What is the currency in Morocco called?

TOMOMI: I have no idea...

HARUNA: 1) Dirham. 2) Rabat. 3) Fez.

MAMI: They all sound like they could be it...

RINA: We've never been there, after all.

HARUNA: Please choose your answer. Who thinks it's 1?

MAMI: I do.

HARUNA: Who thinks it's 2?

TOMOMI: I do.

HARUNA: Who thinks it's 3?

RINA: I do.

TOMOMI: It's split up.

HARUNA: The correct answer is...1! MAMI-chan got it right.

MAMI: Thanks so much... Is it okay to answer correctly??

HARUNA: The correct answer is 1) Dirham. By the way...2) Rabat is the capital of Morocco. And 3) Fez is a historic town known as a "city of mazes," a center of arts and culture, and is a World Heritage Site.

All: I seeー

RINA: That was very educational.

TOMOMI: This is very educational.

RINA: This might turn out to be fun.

MAMI: Like, we'll learn three pieces of trivia with each question?

TOMOMI: I might be appreciative of this.

HARUNA: Let's keep it up.

...there are eight more questions after this. Who will be crowned champion of "Quiz time! TOMOrocco!"??

 To anyone who needs reassurance: RINA mentions they're setting up a way that fans overseas can also watch it--it's a livestream that anyone around the world can watch.


We knew they would, but it's nice to have official confirmation  Clap

TOMO reads the next message from a listener who is, not surprisingly, a teacher. One of their "HOME-TE"'s is a paper shredder (MAMI: "This is basically me!"), and they hold "shredding parties" occasionally (MAMI: "It's a one-person party").


Begin countown to "SCANDAL paper-shredding ASMR InstaLive"   LOL




"Well, it's fine to be called any name by the boy you like."


How very Glass Menagerie  of you, TOMOMI.  Nerd

•This episode is all about the "Quiz time! TOMOrocco!" quiz as talked about here.

•HARU asks the second question:

Q2. What generation is Mohammed, Morocco's current king?

1) VI (sixth)
2) XII (twelfth)
3) XXIII (twenty-third)

TOMO goes with 1, while both RINA and MAMI go with 2. HARU reveals that the correct answer is 1. She also says that his father is Hassam II. The band laughs and TOMO goes, "Wait a second. What?! What does that mean?" MAMI says she's going to Google this later.

-MAMI = 1 point
-TOMO = 1 point


•The third question is asked:

Q3. The total area of Morocco is how many times larger than Japan?

1) 1.2
2) 1.5
3) 1.8

TOMO says that she didn't think it was that big to begin with, but it really isn't that much larger than Japan. HARU says you just have to go with your gut. All of them go with 1, which is the correct answer. RINA is happy that she got it right.

-MAMI = 2 points
-TOMO = 2 points
-RINA = 1 point


•The fourth question is asked:

Q4. What is the population of Morocco?

1) 36 million
2) 40 million
3) 50 million

HARU says that the population count was taken in 2018. TOMO goes with 1, RINA goes with 2, MAMI goes with 3. The correct answer is 1. TOMO goes, "Yayyyy~" and that she's just going with her gut rather than actually knowing what correct answers are.

-TOMO = 3 points
-MAMI = 2 points
-RINA = 1 point


•The fifth question is asked:

Q5. According to the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the ethnic composition of Morocco is 60% Arab. What makes up 30% of the rest?

1) Berbers
2) Casablancans
3) Othmani

TOMO goes with 1, RINA goes with 2, MAMI goes with 3. HARU asks TOMO if she just has a feeling that that's the correct one. She says that she thinks she's heard of that group before, but she'll be embarrassed if she gets it wrong. The correct answer is 1. TOMO goes, "That's the first piece of knowledge I know about the country!" HARU says that 2, Casablanca, is the biggest city in Morocco. TOMO says that she knew that, though that was the only thing she knew. HARU goes, "You're quite knowledgeable [about Morocco], aren't you?" TOMO says, "That's the only thing I knew!" HARU says that 3, Othmani, is the name of the current prime minister of the country. She then says, "We're now five questions deep. How has it been?" TOMO goes, "I'm fine. I can do this."

HARU reads off the points, with TOMO in the lead with 4 points. RINA goes, "You've basically won already!"

-TOMO = 4 points
-MAMI = 2 points
-RINA = 1 point


•Before HARU reads the sixth question, she says, "You guys have noticed some things, so let's go ahead with the rest of the questions." TOMO goes, "What does that mean?!"

Q6. Known as the gateway to Morocco, what is the name of the international airport in Casablanca?

1) Mohammed V International Airport
2) Muhammed V International Airport
3) Hassam II International Airport

TOMO says that the name "Hassam" popped up before, and HARU says that he's the father of the current king, Mohammed VI. MAMI is wondering how the things they've noticed ties in to what HARU said earlier (TOMO: "I haven't noticed anything!").

TOMO goes with 1, RINA decides to go with 1 too, MAMI goes with 2. TOMO goes, "Mohammed V is the name of a university too?" HARU says yes. RINA goes, "So it's both the name of the college and their airport?" HARU laughs and goes, "You're getting a little too ahead of things!" The correct answer is 1. RINA reasks her question, which HARU says the answer is yes. MAMI goes, "Ah, so that's what you meant earlier about noticing things." RINA also understands, but TOMO doesn't seem to.

-TOMO = 4 points
-MAMI = 2 points
-RINA = 2 points


•The seventh question is read:

Q7. What does "Casablanca," the largest city in Morocco, mean in Spanish?

1) White house
2) White flower
3) White castle

MAMI goes with 1, RINA goes with 2, TOMO goes with 3. MAMI gives her answer right away and with so much conviction that RINA goes, "Why is MAMI so confident in her answer?" The correct answer is 1.

-TOMO = 4 points
-MAMI = 3 points
-RINA = 2 points


•HARU reads the eighth question:

Q8. Morocco is actually the number one country that Japan imports this seafood to. What is it?

1) Octopus (tako)
2) Squid (ika)
3) Shrimp (ebi)

HARU says that Morocco's famous for it. All three of them go with 1, which is the correct answer. TOMO says that she's confident in getting the right answer for the next question and laughs. RINA goes, "So that is what that was after all." (She's referring to the fact that all of the correct answers were 1 lol)

-TOMO = 5 points
-MAMI = 4 points
-RINA = 3 points

•After "Mabataki" plays, HARU says that it seems like all three of them realized what she meant by what she said earlier. She then says that this last question will not be a multiple choice one. The three are surprised and go, "Eh!?" 10,000 points (lol) will also be given.

Q9. What is Morocco's traditional leather footwear called?

HARU asks TOMO go answer first. She wishes she had three options to choose from. HARU gives her a hint as to what it is: she says it starts with "ba" and that TOMO has probably heard the word before. HARU says the next part of the word is "bou." TOMO goes, "Ba?! Babou?! Eh?! Ba, baboushoe?" HARU goes, "You're almost there!" She basically gets it: The correct answer is "babouche." MAMI says she's heard that word before.


•HARU says that they basically don't need to check to see who won (TOMO: "I won 10,000 points after all"), but she announces the results anyway: MAMI with 4 points, RINA with 3 points, and TOMO with 10,007 dirham (RINA: "We knew from the start that we'd lose"), making TOMO the winner. As a present, she is given a guide book for Morocco. TOMO is happy with the prize, but also goes, "I thought I'd be getting babouche," and RINA agrees, given how things were going. TOMO seemingly flips through the book and says that it looks like Turkey, and that there seem to also be a lot of cats there (there were also a lot of cats in Turkey when they went there back in 2015). HARU goes, "With the quiz today, you've become more knowledgeable about Morocco now, haven't you?" TOMO says yes, but she kind of stopped thinking hard about things halfway through it. RINA points out how all of the correct answers were 1. TOMO says that MAMI did well to notice that when neither she nor RINA did. MAMI goes, "The correct answers for questions 1-3 were all 1. There's a law that states that all correct answers after that will also be 1." HARU says she also noticed that as she was going through the questions. RINA says that she wishes she realized that too. HARU then says how this was a quiz intended for TOMO as she wants to take a solo trip there, so she tells MAMI and RINA to let them know if there are any places they're interested in going to and they'll do the same kind of thing. TOMO says that she's happy that they did a quiz for her for something that she expressed interest in only once. HARU wonders if they have any fans in Morocco. RINA says that when they toured in Europe, one of the local staff there told them that they do have fans in Morocco. HARU then says that if they have any listeners in Morocco who listen to this program, they'd like for them to write in to them. They wrap up the episode talking more about the quiz, and how this episode was only about this. TOMO says that the listeners probably fell asleep halfway when they were talking about Muhammed/Mohammed.

HARUNA has brought something unbelievable!!
 
Episode #17 blog


kissfromthedarkness - Radio Program - 『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Page 4 HZw0RE6




It seems that HARUNA has brought a slightly crazy, secret item from home...

HARUNA: There's something that I'd to show you guys...

RINA: What is it?

TOMOMI: What is it?

MAMI: What is it?

HARUNA: During the episode three weeks ago...

TOMOMI: Eh?

MAMI: What did you bring?

TOMOMI: ...stop it!!

RINA: So, what is it?

HARUNA: I talked about getting rid of clutter and tidying up stuff, and I said I found something, right?

M, T, R: ...it was a picture.

HARUNA: Yes, I brought it!

M, T, R: ......(*at a loss for words)

RINA: Wow...why did you do that..oh man!

HARUNA: I found it and talked about it, so I thought it should see the light of day at least once.

TOMOMI: It doesn't need to...

MAMI: "See the light of day"; what??

RINA: That should never be posted on the blog, shouldn't it?

HARUNA: I'll leave it up to you to decide if you want to post it there or not.

TOMOMI: Yeah, let's see it.

MAMI: Hold on!

RINA: When was that taken?

MAMI: You're going to post that photo?

HARUNA: It's mostly of our upper halves.

RINA: When was that taken?

HARUNA: Probably before our major label debut.

TOMOMI: When we played street shows on Shiroten?

MAMI: Eh, was that when we wore torn-up outfits?

HARUNA: It's a picture of when we were wearing that skull t-shirt.

RINA: That skull shirt...

HARUNA: For the time being, just the four of us will look at it. Here we go. Ta-da!

All: Ahーーーーーーーーーーーーー! (*screaming)

TOMOMI: That's awesome.

MAMI: This is too much.

RINA: The skull kind of looks like me.

HARUNA: It does kind of look like you.

TOMOMI: That's true.

RINA: I can't believe we did that.

MAMI: Wowーthat's crazyー

TOMOMI: I don't like this.

RINA: It's okay. Everything fine.

MAMI: Yeah, it's okay. Everything fine.

TOMOMI: You say it's okay...but I don't like that either lol

RINA: I remember when we took this.

HARUNA: Where was this?

RINA: It was probably at the live house ESAKA MUSE [in Osaka], right?

MAMI: Who shot this?

RINA: So nostalgic...

MAMI: How did we do our activities wearing this shirt, the first six months? One year?

HARUNA: It wasn't a year yet, right?

RINA: But those were some great memories, truly.

HARUNA: I suddenly felt a sense of fear coming from the inside of my house lol. It surprised me.

RINA: It was so cute how the the four of us were looking so hard for t-shirts at the supermarket, and that the four of us made this our outfit.

TOMOMI: Our makeup looks around then were something.

MAMI: We were still in middle and high school. But they're all good memories.

HARUNA: We'll be bringing you today's episode as we look at this photo, while also staring at our past...

RINA: While remembering our starting days

HARUNA: As we approach the second half of 2020...

I think it's interesting the Haruna mentions the picture is mostly their upper halves. Was that to reassure Mami, who at the time had a build normal for a healthy teenager, but possibly not for a rock star? Was she super self-conscious about having sturdy legs? If so, it adds extra meaning to "Image" and stepping more lightly, and jumping over anything, in that part of her imagined image was that of a super-skinny fashion model.
Or maybe they were wearing embarrassing shoes, I dunno.



Friendship. Effort. Victory.

『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Episode 17


kissfromthedarkness - Radio Program - 『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Page 4 M0LQdWx
kissfromthedarkness - Radio Program - 『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Page 4 CkDjbFI





•The band starts out the episode by talking about what Meiji snacks they're eating, and then this part happens.

•After "Tonight" plays, HARU says that they will be reading messages pertaining to the segments "Life Before SCANDAL" (listeners favorite bands before SCANDAL) and "LOVE SURVIVE 〜SCANDAL's Love Advice〜." The band decides to go with the former segment first. MAMI reads the first message from a listener who was a fan of Brahman before they were a SCANDAL fan. They became a big SCANDAL fan after attending one of their shows and thought that HARU's MC was as passionate as Brahman's vocalist's MCs, and although SCANDAL's domestic tour had to be canceled they are looking forward to hearing HARU's MCs once again in the future. The band wonders what show it was that they went to. TOMO thinks it could have been a festival that both bands appeared at.

•They then switch to questions for their love advice segment. HARU reads the next message a listener who's a rehab worker and has never made any good memories with the people they've dated so far. She'd buy birthday presents [for their significant other?], but when her own birthday came around she would only get back half cost-wise of what she put in (I think lol). It's also now common for her to only communicate once a week with an SO (again, I think lol; the words they chose are kind of vague). She's currently enjoying being single, but she wants to boost their ladylikeness just in case. She asks the band what "ladylikeness" is. TOMO goes, "They've lost their ladylikeness?" RINA brings up the "communicate once a week" thing and wonders what happened. TOMO goes, "They're the bad guy, aren't they?" The band laughs and agrees. HARU thinks that the listener is too loving to their SOs (RINA: "They're a rehab worker after all"). They're happy to receive birthday presents but they don't get back the same amount they spent on giving presents. HARU also thinks the communicating-once-per-week thing isn't very good. Since the listener wants to be happy in their next relationship, she wants to boost her ladylikeness. TOMO goes, "They got a lot of things wrong!" RINA says that they should stop being so nice and also overdoing things, and that it's probably not a matter of ladylikeness. HARU says that "ladylikeness" is a word she's never liked, and RINA agrees and says that feels out of place. There's also "masculinity," but being able to cook or do laundry shouldn't be one of a woman's high points. She also says that it's better not to try to change yourself for the person you're dating, but to be with someone who says that they like the way you live your life. The band kind of goes on for a while about this, but ultimately says at the end that the listener should learn to love themselves first.

•After "Kinenbi" plays, the band jokes that they have too many segments now. TOMO reads the next message from a listener who currently works at a bakery but has a teaching license. They love how MAMI says "te" and how it sounds like her voice is cracking in the clips of the band saying "Supported by Meiji" during each Catch up episode, enough that they can listen to it over and over again. They also really like how MAMI's blood vessels can be seen in live photos of her (like this ). The listener also asks the band if there are things like that they like and notice in other people. TOMO says that fans bring up MAMI's blood vessels a lot. MAMI says that hearing that someone likes how she says "te" so much makes her feel bashful. They then play MAMI's clip of her saying the "Supported by Meiji" line and they all go, "Ahhh!" and get what the listener was saying. They then answer the listener's question. MAMI likes hands, and since her hands are big, she likes smaller and rounder hands on girls and bigger hands + rugged-looking joints on guys. HARU says that something she's only been liking recently is facial hair on guys. When she was younger she thought that having no facial hair was better, but recently she's been thinking that it's sexy when a guy has facial hair. MAMI gets it and TOMO says she also like facial hair. RINA says that everyone in the audience will have facial hair at their next show, which the band laughs at. TOMO says that she likes that the day-off kind of look, and HARU mentions that during quarantine there were quite a lot of celebrities that grew their facial hair out, which may have led to her starting to like it. MAMI says that it immediately gives off a sense of maturity. RINA says that she likes to look at legs regardless of gender, and likes ones that have a good shape to them. TOMO says that she likes guys with long eyelashes, long enough that they cast a shadow. RINA says that she's envious of guys like that.

•RINA reads the next message from a listener who works at a movie theater but also has a teaching license for elementary school. Theaters are taking many precautions against the virus, and they feel that movies, which provide things such as excitement and emotions, are important to the world. RINA says that it certainly is a trying time for movie theaters right now, and that movies and music provides power mentally. Like what precautions movie theaters are taking right now, TOMO talks about how if a 150-person-capacity live house were to hold a show right now and took social distancing measures into effect, only about seven people could be allowed to enter. RINA says that deciding that if it's right or not to play a show, or to respond to everyone's feelings is something they're unsure of. TOMO says that guidelines to play a show right now have been released, but the issue of whether or not people will enjoy it/be satisfied with it, or if the band's feelings will be conveyed is a completely different, difficult issue. They also talk about how they wouldn't be able to go all out, and the audience wouldn't be allowed to sing. TOMO also brings up how people on roller coasters aren't allowed to scream right now . She was surprised to read that and wonders who would actually go on them. The band agrees that something like this is the right thing to do, though.

•The band talks a little about the future. TOMO says how they're really considering what kind of life they'll be living from this point forward, and that they know no one will be able to go back to how their lives used to be. It's a challenge as to how to live a positive and fun life. HARU says they're thinking about ways to have fun while also protecting themselves. They'll probably be spending more time at home still, but they hope that everyone can still enjoy this radio program weekly. They ask for people to keep sending in messages, and they'll keep doing things like that Morocco quiz during the previous episode. The band laughs and MAMI goes "We didn't talk about anything else then, did we?" HARU says there's quite a difference between last week's episode and this week's, but it's very radio program-like.
