Air Gear… sigh…

•July 13, 2010 • Leave a Comment

I’ve been meaning to watch this anime for quite a while. Honestly, the game Jet Set Radio had some influence on my decision to watch it initially and again when I finally got around to it.  I didn’t like it at first, but then it started getting more interesting. The characters were pretty standard compared to super hero-like anime characters.

Girl’s Generation? My dream job

•May 6, 2010 • Leave a Comment

I’ve never really been much for Asian pop, mostly because I’ve only been exposed to Japanese groups like Morning Musume, and them make me feel kind of like a pedophile. This band is different, because they’re all of legal age (I checked). Just kidding. :p

I was surprised to log back in, after quite a long time, to see that I actually get page views from somewhere.

If you guys are out there, leave me a comment to let me know you’re alive.

I’ll start posting more!

What’s better, movie or the band?

•May 29, 2009 • 1 Comment

While I’m sure many of you know of this masterpiece of a movie, and if you’re not I suggest you make yourself aware of it, but many of us don’t know about the band of the same name. Well, let me clear things up. One of them is good, and the other just makes me laugh for 102 minutes.

Please enjoy this small clip of a boy punching a dog in the face, an angry old man with a shotgun, a crazy young man that can’t speak any language, bad lighting techniques, and a labyrinth inside a house.

I hope you enjoyed that as much as I did. Although, I hope I didn’t scare you away..

Takin’ a break

Fuck it

Don’t worry all of my five viewers, I’m not dead. I’m taking a break.

Got lots of crap to do, so don’t expect anything new for a few weeks or so.

Some sort of newspaper or something?

The GazettE

If you were to really think that, you would probably know me personally. The GazettE 「ガゼット is a Japanese group that are classified as rock/metal. Granted, most of their songs probably sound as such, but there are some that have a smooth/easy going feel to it. Hell, some of them fuse easy listening to rock, if you can imagine that. Heavy listening?

Their appearance is quite strange because they follow a movement called “Visual Kei” (V-kei for short). For those of you with prior knowledge to Japanese bands, this should not be news to you. For those of you who haven’t, run while you can! Just kidding. Basically a Visual Kei band is a group who dresses up eccentrically. Makeup us usually worn. Sometimes cross-dressing is involved, so don’t be to quick to ogle over those hot ‘chicks’ because chances are they are dudes.

Wii Would Like To Play [The Shamisen]

•April 14, 2009 • 3 Comments

They're amazing

If you’re a fan of not-so-usual bands, then you’re in for a treat! The Yoshida Brothers are a musical group in Japan that play a Japanese classical musical instrument called the Shamisen. Although their style of music is not classical Japanese, it does take much of it and creates a fusion of sorts. Their Shamisen playing is often times accompanied by a typical rock band backing (Drums, bass, piano, etc…).
