[Radio] Arashi Discovery of 24Dec14 / Arashi Discovery del 24Dic14


2014.12.24 AD - Live the life you love.

Good morning. This is Arashi’s Ohno Satoshi.
Here’s today’s thought of the day; come on!

"Love the life you live. Live the life you love."[1]

[BGM ‘Futari no Kinenbi’]

(laughs) Wasn’t that a new one? So there’s this included as well. If you rounded them all up and listened to it, it’d be fun, wouldn’t it? That’s might just be me though.

This is a quote by the Jamaican reggae musician, Bob Marley-san. Translated, it means that you should love your own life and you should live a life that you love.

Uwaa, how cool! This was sent in by listener Nozomi-dot-dot-dot-chan. The message reads:
"Thanks to this quote, I’ve been re-examining my own life. As I admire Ohno-san’s way of life, is there anything you’re careful of in life?"

There isn’t. (laughs)

Well, on days off, I can’t oversleep. It’s not particularly being careful about it, though. It’s just that if it were a day off, it’d be a waste. Gotta play with all your might.

But today’s the 24th, right? It’s Christmas Eve! What did I do last Christmas Eve? This year… today, right? I’m working. Yeah.

It’s just that, well, miraculously 2 years ago, I think it was… I remember that 2 years ago, Christmas Eve was a day off. And then I gathered a bunch of fishing enthusiasts and went fishing. KatoShige from NEWS? Shige was there, too. And then we set out in 2 ships and went fishing, I remember.

And then back then, I caught something right at the start. So I was the first one to catch something. And then Shige couldn’t catch anything, I think?(laughs) Shige probably was on the same boat as me. But he didn’t catch anything, did he now, Shige-chan? If I remember correctly…

The other day at Best Artist, I was talking to Shige.

"Have you been fishing?"

"Haven’t really been able to."

Then Shige was like, "I occasionally manage to. I’d like to go fishing together next time."

So since he said that, I figured we should go sometime next year. Previously he said, right? "I’d better be careful not to catch anything before my sempai." I’ve seen that. You don’t have to be careful about that! (laughs)It’s not a competition, after all. I’m the type of person who enjoys it even if I don’t catch anything, after all.

That’s right. Catching fish before anyone else, honestly, at that time, on Christmas Eve 2 years ago, I was happy.

Yeah. It felt like I won. (laughs) It became a competition. Fishing is tricky, isn’t it? Emotionally speaking. Mm. I might say I’m fine even if I don’t catch anything right now, but naturally you want to catch something. Everyone just thinks of who’d be the first to catch something. For people who fish. Generally. That sort of greed just appears.

So when you do that, you become unable to catch anything. Fishing is profound, huh?

That’s all; this was Ohno Satoshi!
