Webmaster:Linda Since: August (8/28/08) Version: 4.0 Layout By:Linda Users Online: online Bookmark: (CTRL or COMMAND + D!) Sibling Site:TW-O.ORG
This fansite is not only dedicated to Mark Kanemura, but to his group of extremely loyal, supportive, super organized, and wonderfully "left-of-center" fans, 'Mark's Markers'. Originally starting on IdolForums.Com, Mark's Markers migrated over to MK-O, joined by Mark fans from other communities on the web, all coming together during the Season 4 SYTYCD tour. This fansite is meant to provide the best source of Mark information, news, pictures, videos and more, for all Markers, all over the world, and all Markers who have joined in on the MK-O community (the forums), which you can join now too! :)
The images used in this layout were taken by: Ben Gibbs, Jon LeGally, Becky (SculptureGarden), Andrea (jkpolk), Misty (mb4mkik), Mayra (pearbucket2000), Discrete Royalty, and from Mark's Facebook. Thank you everyone for you amazing shots! :)
As well, all graphics, page design and other elements involved in the creation of this layout was done by Linda! :)

[MASSIVE UPDATE] PART 1: 19 VIDEOS ADDED TO THE VIDEO SECTION!!
Here are two NEW videos featuring Mark! The first is Mark featured in an old performance from 2000, big thanks to Dawn (ngcskate) for putting it up!!!! The second is Mark from back at a workshop in Hawaii in August, giving a really sweet, inspirational speech after the class ended! :) Big thanks to Laurie (angelina) for filming and putting it up as well!!!
Thanks again Dawn (ngcskate) and Laurie (angelina)!!!!!
And for the rest of the video update, I've added 15 VIDEOS TO THE PERSONAL VIDEOS section of the site, featuring very, very HILARIOUS facebook videos of Mark from the month of March!!!! The links are strictly download links as they are links from facebook and not really linkable like youtube.
Thanks to Vicki (NastyCanasta) for organizing them and getting me download links that I am now distributing to all of you! Thank you, thank you, thank you Vicki!!!
Video topics range from bopping along to Lady Gaga to bopping along to Britney Spears, to laughing maniacally for no reason, to singing with Yoori and more! :)
So this weekend Mark was in Florida with Comfort and Sara (from Season 3) teaching and some Markers went and have provided us with some goodies!!! The ones that I'm featuring in this post are videos, I'll add photos shortly (lol we'll see how long shortly takes..) and if you go to the forums then you can read up on all the going ons of the weekend!!!
Big thanks to Nikkei (nmkmkik) for the following videos!!

Be sure to CALL the dance studio if you're interested in registering or observing!!
There are MK-O Markers attending this Sunday so there should be pictures and videos and stories on MK-O shortly after :) Check the Dance Dimensions thread on the forums to follow the goodies as they are posted: THIS THREAD HERE!
Also, lots of updates still to add, I will get to it!!!!
And I hope everyone's been following Mark's BLOG! He's been updating it quite regularly and it's a greeeeeat read! :)
Hey everyone!!!!! I don't know if you have been following this in the FORUM or not but for months there's been talk and organization for a MARKER AUCTION and it's finally starting to take off!!!
Items included in this auction range from Mark's Party People outfit (yes I said that) to signed posters from all the dancers, photo books, great quality posters and high quality photos, and other fun stuff!!!
The items are being put up one by one and so far two items have been put up and there's already A LOT of interest in one of them... here's a preview and links to the current items up for bidding!!
( CLICK ABOVE TO HEAD TO THE AUCTION PAGE FOR THIS ITEM! This is Mark's actual Party People outfit worn on the show and on stage during tour! Signed by Mark and well, more information on the actual eBay page! )
( CLICK ABOVE TO HEAD TO THE AUCTION PAGE FOR THIS ITEM! This is 24/VII's hoodie!! More information on the actual eBay page! )
Big thanks to Dawn (ngcskate) for spearheading this auction and thanks to all the Markers who helped contribute to the auction list!!! As I said, the items are going to be put up one by one for auctioning and the timeframe is really up to Dawn. Check out the Auction thread on the forums: HERE!!! Questions, concerns, and overall comments about how freaken awesome this is, can be done there. And again..
ALSO, I wasn't sure if I was going to advertise on MK-O or not but now that Mark's changed his facebook status to reflect what I wanted to advertise, I guess this is the perfect time to do so!!!
And if you don't know what the heck that video is, let me briefly explain! I'm trying to get a job in AUSTRALIA and to do so for this particular job I needed to upload a video application. There's like 8000 people all over the world applying but my video has been in the "MOST POPULAR" section everyday since I uploaded the video! I need more new people to watch the video and rate it (5 stars please!!!) in order for it to stay most popular so the judges take notice and choose me!!!
So please do as Mark suggests and watch my video, rate it 5 stars, and then please tell your friends/family/coworkers!!! I would REALLY appreciate it!!! And I promise I will still update MK-O if living in Australia!!! LOL
Hey guys!! Lots of picture updates today as well as more details about that February 22 dance class Mark will be teaching! We'll start with that!
So I wrote before that it was a "master class" but that's technically false. It's part of a SYTYCD Master Class Series and Mark's class is actually both for intermediate and advanced but observers are also welcome!!! If you sign up before Sunday then it's only $25 and I think that's SUCH a great price for class with Mark! :)
Click HERE or the preview below to view the full poster with details!
Be sure to CALL the dance studio if you're interested in registering or observing!! :)
Thanks to Margot (deadbeatclub) for getting the flier for MK-O and MarksMama and Mark's Aunt Joni for the heads up! :)
And that's it for today!! Still lots of stuff to add to the site but I think today will be my last at least semi-big update for the rest of the week. Little bits and pieces here and there for the rest of the week! :)
