I think certain someones -who work for Shiseido- could be out of a job xD

There’s a great (though rather longish) commercial titled The Secret of High School Girls (メーク女子高生のヒミツ) that pretty much shows how good Shiseido makeup can be- or, in this case, I think you have to give props to the makeup artists, no?

Great concept.

Apparently the CM shoot took 7hrs., and it’s a one-shot take, so big props to the makeup and hair team [Tadashi Harada (原田忠), Yoshiko Jinguji (神宮司芳子), Yumiko Kamada (鎌田由美子), Hirofumi Kera (計良宏文), Etsu Nishijima (西島悦), Miyako Okamoto (岡元美也子), Noriko Okubo (大久保紀子), Setsuko Suzuki (鈴木節子)], who had to work on still-shooting mode.

Directed by Show Yanagisawa (柳沢翔) [Portfolio] for WATTS OF TOKYO (ワッツオブトーキョー).

Here’s a short Making Of.

Holy shit!? Is this a thing? I could only find the Frigidaire that changes the freezer into a refrigerator and vice versa [1], but they’re not giving you extra space… just switching one for the other. my kitchen tech is way behind the times, since I still use the same microwave we bought like 25 years ago, and our refrigerator is -at least- 18 years old. LOL

Here’s another CM. Seems to be only available in India, for now.

And this seems super cheap- the most expensive one (480L) is 65,000 Rupees, which at the moment is about a bit over $1k USD. That’s like half or a third of what one of those double-door refrigerators that waste a lot of space because they give you the illusion of giving you loads of compartments is. The 322L one is only a bit more than $650USD. THAT’S FRIGGING CRAZY.

That’s like buying an iPhone, no? FML. Two 64GB iPod Touch, and maybe two 16GB iPad mini 4. For that, you can buy an appliance. Geez~


My limit for sap is through the roof, as I got all warm and fuzzy when I found this song Rene Liu recorded with mah gurls Zhou Xun, Kwai Lun Mei and Tang Wei (whom I’ve just recently warmed up). They’re all super cute and super dork and super sappy together. I love it.

The song is called Wish You Well (我要你好好的), a single of Rene’s latest album of the same name, but it’s one of the last songs to get a video. The song Murmur of the Hearts (念念) [MV] is also on this album. I thought maybe it was for a movie, but doesn’t seem likely.

Happy listening~ DORK AWAY!

I’m enjoying all these liquor short films [1] that are coming up. I don’t even drink. This time around Indian actresses Konkona Sen Sharma and Tillotama Shome are two neighbor friends despite their seemingly different personalities for a short sponsored by Seagram’s Royal Stag.

Directed by Jaydeep Sarkar, the short seems to come as… sort of a clash with the image of a whisky brand. But I’ll take it.

The struggle of concealing one’s self.

Really hard-hitting ending.

Yeh Dil Vole! xD

Anyone who’ve seen both Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s 1996 directorial debut Khamoshi: The Musical (Silence: The Musical) and last year’s Belgian-French La Famille Bélier -by Eric Lartigau- can spot the similarities between the two (as well as the 1996 German film Beyond Silence (Jenseits der Stille) by Caroline Link). You can even spot the similar plot points by either reading the outline or watching the trailer.

In the pivotal emotional punch of the movie, the daughter (played by Manisha Koirala and Louane Emera respectively) auditions to the coveted singing position, when her (deaf) parents -who had been against the idea- show up to see their daughter perform both vocally and in sign language. Koirala (voiced by playback singer Kavita Krishnamurthy) doing Yeh Dil Sun Raha Hain (This Heart Is Listening), and Emera singing Je Vole (I Fly).

Though Lartigau’s more modern take is much more musically accessible (let’s be honest, the film starts out with 2008 staple That’s Not My Name [1]), it’s also lighter. Bhansali’s story focuses a big chunk of his running time to tell the story of Manisha’s parents, also incredibly played by Nana Patekar and Seema Biswas, their struggle to raise a (hearing) child in near poverty levels, to the point that Patekar goes door to door with his daughter to make a living selling things.

Of course, both also have a love interest, and both Salman and Ilian Bergala are the weakest link.

I declare- DRAW!
