shinpei has his driver’s license.
it seems he currently owns a mini cooper.
in past blogs, he’d often take pictures of poor/strange drivers on the road and tease them. itty bitty bully on our hands.
he’s also had a small history of speeding…
this is purely speculation, but it seems he drives somewhat like a yankee.
he received the plush as a gift from fans on his last birthday with SL. he received a pikachu hat as well. and lots of candy, naturally. one of the members also bought him wine, and accidentally revealed shinpei does drink on occasion. they also bought him a shoulder massager, the wand style… which can VERY EASILY be mistaken for something else. the members’ presents caused him a great deal of blushing.
soooo… shinpei’s kind of a liar. only kind of. he says he doesn’t drink, but acually, he does. he just drinks very very rarely, maybe 2 times a year, if that. he seems to like wine.
the picture above are boxes of wine he bought while at an onsen back in early 2007; and the other time which i heard of him drinking was on his final birthday with Seciliaルナ when wine was given to him as a gift from another member.
even then, it seems he only drinks on special occasions.
Prior to SuG, shinpei lived in a very small apartment. He worried that a drum kit wouldn’t fit comfortably in the room, not to mention that the noise may trouble the neighbors. So when it came time for recording and rehearsals, he’d pack up his futon and Gamecube, as well as loading up his mini fridge, and would live in the studio until recording was complete.
Behold! The Mysterious Creature/Sleeping Buddy~
I’m not sure if he still does this, as I recently haven’t seen any pictures of his buddy. But in his Secilia Luna and early SuG days shinpei slept w/a monkey plush. I don’t remember when he got the plush, but it seems he took it everywhere with him… because he wasn’t cute enough already.
