This radio programme. ARASHI DISCOVERY.

decided to come to an end this month.
Well it’s quite a sudden.
Well, Kurihara’s programme, Morning Step, will also come to an end. At the same
time. Well until the 31st this month, then come to an end.
Well, but, really. It started from 1st October 2002.
It’s been 14.5 years. I’ve been doing it for 14.5 years.
Well, really everyone. Well… everyone who’s
been listening to this programme all along. Really everyone, thanks a lot,
Well. 14.5 years. How many episodes have there
been? So, five days a week, this programme. Then, one year, there are around 52
weeks. So, one year there are 260 episodes. And then for 14.5 years, there are
3,770 episodes. Still, well, there were also
days with no broadcast, though.
During these 3750 days I kept speaking. At the beginning it was
like, three choices to a question.
Next week. Well there will be bit a Special. Well there are still two weeks to
go, next week, since long time, with Kurihara-san, I’ll directly do the radio
programme with him. Probably
it’s the first time since the 10th annual anniversary of this radio programme
Let’s do it. Um. Since long time. The two of us
speak. We would like to
broadcast this special version. Please look forward to it!
“Dag” - a goofy person or nerd. “Doof warrior” - doof is the noise used to describe bass in music (like the “uhn” in “uhn-tss”)…it’s the name of the guitar guy, appropriately. “Fang it!” - floor it / pedal to the metal. “He’s a crazy smeg who eats schlanger.” - basically, he’s a jerk who eats dick. “Snagger” - usually means sausage, but in context of the film, likely meant as an insult akin to stupid or idiot.
Anyone else pick up on more slang sprinkled in Mad Max: Fury Road? Also, if you haven’t seen it…seriously. Do it!
