You would have to forgive me as I don’t really follow Ayase Haruka’s career, but she did kinda win me over when she played Saki on that freaking successful jdrama known as JIN [1][2], which got me to give a peak to Ayase’s pop culture oeuvre — Hotaru no Hikari, which okay. No, I couldn’t digest it. So forgive me if I’m late to the party, but- OMG! A WHOLE FREAKING YEAR! 50 episodes of a girl that likes guns? In a period setting. I love it.

Plus it’s got Joe Odagiri at some point in the show.

Yae no Sakura (八重の桜) might be actual must-watch TV (with worthy wait of subtitles) for, at least, ten episodes.

In all honesty, I had a lot of Spice Girls fun when it happened, but the best part of the whole thing will ALWAYS be this animated GIF. Thank you forever and always, Lainey.

The commercials for Nintendo featuring Penelope Cruz and her sister work great. They still make me laugh. This one is still my favorite though;

Though, the other one with Mario Bros still has its charm. It’s also great to see that both versions in Spanish or English are difficult to pin-point which one was the original language. It doesn’t look like it’s been dubbed… or maybe it was shot twice, but it’s hard to tell if both version are slightly different.

Bjork’s Facebook account has just shared a photo of teeny tiny baby Bjork, which is utterly adorable. Also goes to show us that Bjork has hardly changed at all.

The Apocalypse came and went, and we made it through to live one more Christmas. I love Christmas music (so sue me!) — and Americans have the best cheesiest Christmas music that makes you all cheery and bright. The classics are unbeatable by newer songs (except for NSYNC’s Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays [MV]). Some of my favorites are Santa Claus Is Coming to Town (the Rosemary Clooney version she did for the Rosie O’Donnell Xmas special), Here Comes Santa Claus (the Disney parade version), Do You Hear What I Hear, Sleigh Ride (either the Disney version or the Billy Gilman + Charlotte Church duet), Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree, Last Christmas (ok, not so ‘classic’ xD) — DISNEY WAS MY LIFE!

… and of course, Jingle Bell Rock~

So here is SunnyHill performing the song and wishing us Merry Christmas :)

Merry Christmas, everyone!
