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! :)

NEW PICTURES + VIDEOS FROM MOMENTUM BENEFIT PERFORMANCE FEB 7 2009!
Like I said in the last "Momentum"-related update, if you'd like to see pictures and videos and read recaps from the show and meet and greet as they are posted, check out the MOMENTUM THREAD ON MK-O FORUMS!, pictures and recaps start coming in officially around Page 10!
Here is the first batch of pictures from the show/meet & greet thanks to Margot (deadbeatclub)!! Marksie performed Bleeding Love :)
Still lots of pictures to come! :) Thanks again for these Margot!!
Now I really wasn't sure if these would be classified as too "personal" to post.... BUT after taking into account that everyone who visits this site has Mark as a friend on Facebook and/or (hopefully) visits the forum, you all have had access to these videos already so I might as well post them and make it nice and official right? :) Plus their really not like the incriminating kind of personal that shouldn't be posted, kind of thing. LOL they're just really cute and funny. And everyone has seen them!! PLUS the PERSONAL VIDEOS section of the site is soo lacking! So that is my defense. lol :)
Mark is starting what I'm sure will be quite the craze -- facebook video wall posts! (I'm just saying he started it but I'm sure other people have done it before, lol)
He sent out these videos to his sisters + his friend Yoori the past few days:
I'm going to be doing today's batch of updates a little differently because I think I have a lot of material so each "type" of update will be it's own different post! I'll also be updating each separate update throughout the day as with the Momentum pictures there will be more coming in later today and so on and so forth. :)
So this post is to announce that..
Dance Dimensions is located in Westfield Promenade Mall in Woodland Hills, California (Los Angeles pretty much). So far no word on the time but head over to the Dance Dimensions website and give them a call if you're in the area, think you'll attend, and would like more information! DANCE DIMENSIONS WEBSITE!
Thank you so much to Mark's Mama for the heads up!!! (and Mark's aunt who had seen a flier advertising this and told Mark's mom :D)
Hi everyone! This is just a quick update to remind everyone that tonight Mark and Chelsie will performing for the "MOMENTUM Los Angeles Youth Ballet benefit ! :) I know there's a few MK-O members going so hopefully videos or images from the performance and maybe meet & greets afterwards will be put up over the weekend!
If you're heading to the Momentum benefit, check this thread on the forums to discuss it with other Markers, maybe get in on their Marker meet up too!
That will also be where all of the goodies filmed or photographed from tonight will be posted by the Markers who attend and they'll certainly have that stuff up way quicker than I can add it to the site so I suggest heading there anyway if you want that material as they are posted :)
I'm also determined to do a massive update on everything in the next coming days because Mark stuff keeps piling up in the 'not-yet-added-to-site' pile and that is kind of silly, because it should be on the site!! :) Haha
Hey everyone!! Here is some updated information about that mystery benefit performance Marksie will be doing this Saturday:
It's at 8:00PM at the Plaza del Sol Performance Hall in L.A. Tickets are ONLY $17.50!!!! ( TICKETS! ) Check out more information / to buy tickets HERE or below!
Mark is in the process of putting up posters about the benefit on his Facebook & MySpace so be sure to check those out for more information too!But since the 7th is coming up fast, hopefully this MK-O post and some updates sent by MK-O on facebook will help spread the word and more people will come to support!! :)
SOURCE: MARK'S MAMA! Thank you so much Nora! :)
Let MK-O know if you are going!!! head over to the FORUMS!
Hey everyone!! Some updates on some upcoming appearances Mark will be making in the next month and some.

No further details about that yet but we'll soon get a name of the benefit. Keep checking back to MK-O for more information!
Also be sure to check out this fabulous thread on the forums MARK'S MAMA'S CORNER! Started by Laurie (angelina), it will be an easy one-stop place to check up on highly reliable confirmation and information about Mark's whereabouts, straight from the words of his mama herself! (Thank you Nora!!)

Thanks to Michelle (ShellBen) for digging up the studio website! :)
Hey everyone!! If you haven't noticed, updates have been occurring less and less lately and I'm really sorry for that! I've been super busy with school and projects and I've had almost no time to work on screencaptures and adding new sections and even visiting the FORUM! :(
This is just a quick post to apologize for the lack of updates and also ask you Markers...
I know a lot of information, speculation, and links to pictures and videos are posted in the MK-O FORUM every day (if you want the latest information and to interact with Markers, sign up for the forum if you haven't done so yet!), but with how my schedule has been these past few weeks and upcoming weeks I feel like I've been missing out on a lot of valuable stuff that could be added to the site!
So to conclude this post, please help MK-O by emailing links to any Mark information, media, etc that you think should/could be added to the site!! :)
Not too much else to say about it really, haha. I hope everyone likes it!! It's definitely a lighter, brighter layout and uses a lot less images than the former. Now that this new layout is up I will DEFINITELY be focusing on updating the different MK-O sections (still have new sections to add!!) as well as continuing to catch the gallery up on S4 screencaptures!
Also, photo credit for the 3 photos used in this layout go to Mitchell Zachs and Kenneth Hoglund!!
Also, today Mark came back from his stint in Las Vegas!
His facebook status update as of a few minutes ago:
Mark Kanemurais baaaaaaaaaaaaack......and finally has internet.......i feel human again!!!!!!!!!!!!! yippe
So commence (hopefully) regular updates from him, new videos? combos? news and more! :-)
Anyway, as I said I hope everyone likes the new layout and I'll be continuing regular updates again (well as best as I can with my schedule)!!
Just a quick update today, Mark's Mama posted an update of what Mark's been up to since moving to L.A!!
- Mark has found an AGENT! - He's been to a bunch of auditions. - ** He was hired for a special event at a Las Vegas hotel with other dancers and that's what he's currently doing! ** - He doesn't have his computer with him, which is why he hasn't been updating his Facebook/Myspace/Youtube. - He will be back in Los Angeles on the 25th, where he'll settle into his new L.A. home and his car will be ready!!
Direct quote from Mark's Mama:
" Your support and continued enthusiasm are so much appreciated and I am sure there will be events in LA and elsewhere that you can be a part of too. His agent has some things lined up for him in the near future, and we are optimistic that more opportunities will be there for Mark to sustain his living in LA. Thanks again Markers for being the great Markers that you are!!! "
So there is the answer to your I wonder what Mark's been doing? question!!
Keep checking MK-O regularly for all of your Mark news, videos, pictures, and more! :)
Some new stuff!! (Well new old but new for me so I assume new for most of everyone who doesn't live in Hawaii) Mark was featured in a magazine called "GMAG" from Hawaii back in Sept/Oct! There's two full images of both the cover and his interview page, as well as smaller cropped images of photos on the two full pages.
The magazine was given to a Marker who went to visit Hawaii recently and she scanned the two Mark pages (the cover and his interview page) for MK-O!!
So thank you to Carol (AnaCortes) for scanning the pages and sending it in!
Thank you again CAROL!!!
I'll also be transcribing the interview page into a separate page in the 'Mark Interviews' section of the site, later today!
