My dear if you are talking about the social network claimed to be moderated by Sho, please do not believe it. And even if he has a personal blog (which I have not heard of any for these 5 years in the fandom, until recently, when Sho is already SUPER BUSY where'd he find the time to manage it anyway), it will be 100% Japanese :-) Due to his packed schedule they even stopped his radioshow Shobeat.

Are you talking about 'Otonoha'?
I wouldn't really call it a blog...or maybe it is. There isn't a direct link- I believe you have to register for it through Johnny's and you get monthly(?) updates from Sho on what he's doing and what not. I've been able to find a couple online.

"Otonoha" is Sho's phone blog (like Nino's "Game Nikki" before this) sent directly to FC members' phones. No official link whatsoever unless fans transcribe it out^^;

awwww....  sho rap beat has been stopped? Well, it can't be helped... He's so busy ne? With all of those projects Arashi's doing. Ja, Ganbatte ne,  sho rap-kun! Ganbatte ne, Arashi!!! :yahoo:

Erm yeah, it was stopped way back in 2008 (the last episode of Shobeat was broadcasted on 30th March 2008). Then only "Otonoha" came along :-)

Okay, digressing a bit.

Interesting Sho facts

■ he talked in his sleep during 2002 Summer Concert. Ohno who was in the same room heard it very clearly at around 6 am saying “let Aiba sleep!”. But he himself didn’t know anything about it.
■ he doesn’t eat between meals
■ when he went Izu hot spring with Myojo for shooting, it so happened that it was the place he went with his family 10 years ago. He called his mom on the spot just because of this.
■ Arashi Car usually comes to fetch Sho after getting Ohno, Sho once saw Ohno’s feet on the manager’s head when he opened the car door... (大野くん, 何あってんのよ....)
■ when he went outdoor shooting with Aiba on ‘Uso! Japan’, they interviewed a pop idol group. Sho said without thinking that he knew their songs, and sang quite awkwardly. But Aiba on the other hand, was singing along rather happily... (やっぱり相葉ちゃんだね~)
■ 「Mayonaka no Arashi」card reading prophesized that he’ll have to retain class (we all know it didn’t come true)
■ his brother calls him ‘Bambi’ after watching ‘Kisarazu Cat’s Eye’
■ his results are good, so his teachers wrote a recommendation letter for him to take the examination to enter Keio U
■ his father was a student from Keio since young, graduated in Todai, now a politition.His mother’s an English Literature teacher. He has a sister younger than him by 5 years, named Mai and a brother younger than him by 13 years named Shuu
■ Aiba and Ohno influenced him to be less calculative about things
■ during the audition part of the Summer Concert, he was super nervous because he can hear fans talking as he sat quite close to them
■ his ‘girlfriend preferences’ are quite similar to Ohno’s... (oooh, 危ない!)
■ seem to like Aiba a lot lately, even ‘ex-love’ Nino complained about this in envy. After the photoshooting session for April’s DUET, he left with Nino. Later, he came back alone to the shooting scene to wait for Aiba instead. (wowzers... but then... 本当二遅いな相葉ちゃん... still not done yet after 翔くんreturned)
■ he joined the Boy’s Brigade before, but he was bullied so he quit after 3 days joining (翔くんbeing bullied?! 信じられない~)
■ in June, he got to know that they’re debuting with Nino
■ he’s building up on his muscles (yeah, it’s pretty obvious)
■ fast-thinker
■ he was considered a senior in Johnny’s Junior before Arashi was formed
■ because he’s the rapper in Arashi, Japanese (who have bad English, really) calls him ‘raper Sho’ (what the?!!! Sho doesn’t go around raping girls!!!)
■ he’s quite close to Imai Tsubasa. And there’s even a reason for it, because their name has the kanji character 井and羽
■ he was called ‘Piano King’ in Music Jump
■ he becomes super monstrous when he’s angry
■ on the first day og entering his university, he asked for Nino’s help because he didn’t know how to fix his tie
■ he likes to sing songs by female singers in KTV, like  songs by Amuro Namie (0.o)
■ the short form initial of every male member in the Sakarai family is written as S. S.
■ he loves ‘Frisk’ peppermint sweets very much, will usually finish up a box a day (まじかよ?!)
■ he will read some comics before he goes to bed

Compiled a little bit more, just to refresh some memories, I'm sure you guys must've watched/read these before ;-)

-since primary school he'd always love to listen to R&B and Hip Hop, but when he realized that listening and creating rap is a totally different story, he said that being able to create a rap in Japanese is something quite difficult (JUNON Magazine: Jan 2000 issue)
-he is recognized as one of the most H in Arashi by the members (Person Magazine: Dec 2002 issue)
-he went straight to shower after concert since he had to leave earlier, but the members insisted on waiting for him to open the champagne, he didn't know it and left straightaway after showering (Wink Up Magazine: Dec 2007 issue)
-he was supposed to join in a written conversation initially started by Ohmiya on the music stand in the recording studio. The messages went on like this>> Ohno: "Nino, how much do you like me?" Nino: "I like you a lot a lot" Ohno: "So what about Sho-kyun?" ...but Sho didn't reply, and called them both culprits for converting the music stand into Arashi message board. (Zoom In Saturday: 23rd May 2009)
-he complained that if he says his weakness, the TV producers will make him do it even more (Oshaerism: 24th Aug 2008)
-being a man, he admits that he likes miniskirts and fishnets (An An Magazine: Feb 2010 issue)
-he asked Nino marry him cause he thought Nino would make a good husband since Nino's been cooking all the time (MMA Boat Club Saga)
-he was the one who suggested the idea of burying something and plant a tree over it, then dig it out 10 years later, so he had to carry the time capsule to their destination site, but he was complaining all the way (Mayonaka no Arashi, final episode)
-he wrote a letter to thank all the staff of Arashi no Shukudaikun and said that it is all because of the very same staff they had over the years since "C no Arashi" that Arashi are now able to host variety shows (Myojo Magazine: Jan 2007 issue)
-he said he doesn't mind being picked on/made fun at if it makes others happy (Orista Magazine: Mar 2010 issue)
-we're now used to having Sakuraps, but back then Sho really wished that they would use his raps in Arashi songs (Wink Up Magazine: Feb 2002 issue)
-he said that usually when the 5 of them go to Hokkaido for tour concerts they'd only go to the eat&drink-all-you-can restaurants, but since it's their 10th year they went a sushi restaurant and thought "finally we made it this far", but in the end the office footed their bill (Ousama no brunch: 16th Jan 2010)
-he was the one who broke the secret to the public that Ohno couldn't change in time during a concert and ended up with only an underwear (Duet Magazine: Aug 2006 issue)
-so he's been noticing Ohno a lot huh, he said Ohno just starts to buy a t-shirt for himself during a location shooting and actually wore that shirt to the next location shooting (Potato Magazine: Jan 2007 issue)
-he explained to the host when the other members sent flowers individually instead of sharing one and labelling it as "Arashi", he said it's because they're his friends, meaning he meant a lot to them so they would sorta pay more kinda thing (Waratte Iitomo: 10th Jan 2010)
-he has no hobbies, so to keep himself occupied he hunts for good place to dine and plans properly especially when he's going out to eat with the members (Utaban: 2nd Mar 2010)

uwah, one of the best universities at Japan.
I love smart people.  lol

by just thinking about that, he's good at time management.
Acads + Arashi + Shows + etc.
can't imagine how he did that  :cool3:

 sho rap... he's so admirable, I respect him so much, that adorable chipmunk/rapper/newscaster/air-muscles... xD (the list won't stop!)

I have a question though, have he ever mention his parents' occupation in any shows or interviews? How do people know that his dad is a politician and his mom is a professor? Unlike Aiba and Nino who mention their parents' occupatiosn a number of times, I don't ever recall Sho mentioning his family...

I'm just really curious....

isn't Shos dad a politician??  I recall reading this somewhere on the net of course.. like you said, there isn't really any statement from Sho himself. Maybe he's concerned with his fathers reputation, thus, preferred to lay low on family issues... that is so sho-like  :cool3:

would be grateful is someone can confirm this... arigato gozaimas... :x):

Got this from AsianFanatics.net

Its kind of an old news... but I couldn't help posting it in here coz' I'm so proud of our Sho-kun

Quote
Arashi’s Sho Sakurai (28) traveled to Moscow to meet a former head of state and to the Berlin wall as part of his special report for Nippon TV’s 24Hr TV, reports Sports Hochi.

Sakurai’s special, titled “嵐・櫻井翔が緊急リポート! 世界の貧困と格差社会の現実~マンホールで暮らす人々とは~ (Arashi - Sho Sakurai’s Breaking News! The reality of global poverty and social disparity ~people who live in manholes~ )” sent him to Moscow to interview Nobel Peace Prize winning former head of state Mikhail Gorbachev (79).

Mr Gorbachev is widely known as the man whose actions lead to the end of the Cold War around the late 1980s, early 1990s. After Mr Gorbachev heard Sakurai had been interviewing a wide range of people in different places for his “NEWS ZERO” series “世界平和への祈り (Sekai Heiwa heno Inori, A Prayer for World Peace)” over the past year, the nobel prize winner applauded Sakurai for his efforts.

“I am very happy to meet a responsible person like you.

“I hope more and more people will be able to think not only about themselves, but also about the suffering the people around them are going through, and want to help them,” he said.

After Sakurai had introduced himself in Russian, Mr Gorbachev pushed aside Sakurai’s prepared notes.

“I want to hear about your opinions,” he told a confused Sakurai.

The interview went on for more than 30 minutes, during which the two talked about poverty, economic instability, and peace operations.

It has been reported Sakurai was still shaking after his interview.

“It was an incredible priviledge to have met a person I watched on the news as a young boy,” he said.

His latest adventure had sent him reporting from Moscow to the Berlin wall, and to Romania.

“It’s been 20 years since the Cold War ended. How has the world changed. I hope I can make people in Japan think about how one person’s situation can affect others,” he said.

“嵐・櫻井翔が緊急リポート! 世界の貧困と格差社会の現実~マンホールで暮らす人々とは~ (Arashi - Sho Sakurai’s Breaking News! The reality of global poverty and social disparity ~people who live in manholes~ )” will air on “24時間テレビ33「愛は地球を救う」(24Hr TV 33 ‘Love Saves the Earth’)” on August 29 in Japan.

Wow, that's new to me! Coming from such a scholarly family, it's no wonder Sho is such a high flyer!

I wish I have all the songs he produced and aired during his time on Sho Beat. At least a list of the songs. I forgot what they are. >_<

I want the lyrics too - raw and translated, if available.

"Pen no sasu houkou" is probably the most well-known in the fandom. There are several versions of this song. Sho produced and wrote the First Chapter to commemorate his graduation from Keio University. He gave out the CDs as graduation gifts to his fellow graduating friends. ^^

I can find the transcripted and translated lyrics of the First Chapter and Second Chapter at Lyrics subforum done by the lovely Denise_Dinc. ^^ Chapter 3 can be found at the livejournal community tsutaete.
(Denise_Dinc, if you're reading this, I thought you had the lyrics to the other chapters as well... But I can't find them anymore...? ^^;;)

I never thought much why the title is "Pen no sasu houkou" - "The direction the pen is pointing at" until today. It just dawned on me that he is probably referring to the Keio Uni logo - two pens forming a cross pointing upwards, the top. Yes, slow is slow. ^^;; I wonder if the titled ought to be translated as "The direction the pens are pointing at". Plural. Although opposing, always to the top. ^^

Sho, Johnny's resident rebel, managed to get away with a line like, "I know what a f*cking Johnny's is, bast*rd!". Yes, the English f-word managed to slip through the censorship net and went on air like that (...right?). Ahh... He definitely didn't back away from people who looked down on Johnny's idols. Just like Keio's motto, 'the pen is mightier than the sword', he attacked those people with prejudice through his lyrics.

Which is probably why I look forward to his rap and solo songs the most. 'Anti Anti' (probably anti-'the anti-fans') and 'Hip Hop Boogie' seem to carry his challenge to those who only took idol at face value.

Anyway, if you know the names of the songs, versions and where I could get them, please feel free to leave a comment. Thank you in advance. ^^

I figured since it's Sho Month, perhaps his songs would surface once again... ^^

Edit:
Edit:

So sumoboy suggested going over to Wiki for the list. Why didn't I think of that?! ^^;;

 It wasnt love at first sight... took me long to realise that despite i was jun baited , Sho would become my ichiban a whole year after i discovered arashi.. I admire Sho cause he seems to have his dream full filled.. Studied, became famous, he has natural beauty.. Love his hands, long, white n delicate, his full lips , full like mine and those big eyes that can look at you innocently and make you melt. I like men in suits and Sho every Monday fullfills my needs in this too. I like men with earrings and he has already.. I like men that laugh from their heart and got an honest smile like child and he has that too.. He has a unique way to fail to win to tease to speak to run to do anything. for first time in my life i cared for someone more than i care for myself..discovered fangirlism with arashi, but discovered myself in his eyes.. thank you for that Sho-kun, appreciate it.  in love in love in love :ah:

- Sho's not my ichiban but sometimes I find myself flailing over him instead of Ohno (lol).
- I knew about Shobeat but didn't know why it stopped.
Due to his packed schedule they even stopped his radioshow Shobeat.
-->It's quite sad that he's that busy, but I admire this man SO much!
- Thanks Denise_Dinc for the interesting facts about Sho! It's my first time reading his trivias and there's only one word to sum it up" <3. (Not a word really.)
- Again, I keep on hearing that Sho came from a good/high family, but now knowing that his father is a politician, that just makes me all the more grateful his parents didn't stop him from becoming an idol.
-

-->the best way to sum up why I adore SHO! He's such a silly/serious man! And the conflicts in his character! Belly and ear piercings and a rapper to boot but he's a graduated idol (started the boom in johnny's too). He looks SO NICE in suits! And his smile...

* Anyway, it's the 24th here so probally almost or early 25th in Japan.
Happy Birthday Sakurai Sho! 29 already! May he keep supporting their silly Riida and do the best he can.
(i have this image of him and jun being the parents. Ohno is the son. Aiba and Nino are the uncles who spoils and plays with their nephew :x):)
