When my family first got cable, I remember watching NHK. Now, as a person who doesn’t speak Japanese at all, and being a Japanese wannabe… the only programs I could actually follow sans subtitles were kid shows. One of them is the long-lasting Okaasan to Issho, which apparently began showing on October 5h, 1959. I think the first time I saw the show was in 1999… or I could be wrong and be 1998. Anyway, if you don’t know about it… it’s like hmm, Menudo meets Sesame Street, but for really really small kids. I’m guessing 2-3 years old. The show has been inventing and re-inventing itself throughout the years. Changing life-size-puppets, and hosts in their many years. Continue Reading…

Hey, guys! *woot woot* Post 200
I’ve been thinking of getting rid of the Deezer player because I haven’t been able to find or upload the music to share… and I haven’t logged into my account in FOREVER. LOL’ So I might be changing my music player in the coming days… maybe going back to my old player, or beginning using the audio library on this new WordPress (Yes! Amy updated her WordPress).
Anyway, I have been Asian-ized once again…. like my 2003 period. I’ve been updating my Korean, Japanese and Chinese music… haven’t really found any new artist, but I have expanded my library of the artist I used to listen to so often… – I have also expanded my discography is some artists on my iPod.
Here is the list of albums I’ve been listening to:
Well, I was listening to some new music on my iPod, when I realized I haven’t talked about new music in a while. In fact, I haven’t changed my Deezer music player since Christmas, ha!
So this is some info on what I’ve been listening to:
- LAST ALLIANCE (which I haven’t found the lyrics yet!)
- Ingrid Michaelson – Girls and Boys
- SoKo – No Sokute
- Reel Big Fish (this really gets you going)
- The Moldy Peaches (thank you, Juno… lol)
- Kimya Dawson
- Freddie Mercury & Montserrat Caballé
- Feist (more songs of her)
- The Mamas and the Papas, alongside with some Cass Elliot
- The Eagles – Long Road Out of Eden
- Freezepop – Swimming Pool is pretty awesome.
- Kate Nash – Made of Bricks
- Vampire Weekend – it’s pretty fun, but not as fun as Los Campesinos! xD
- The Kooks – Konk
- Melanie C… her music is not bad, but I’m feeling it’s missing an umph!
- Au Revoir Simone – The Bird of Music… The Lucky One, oh the Sholly fan in me!
And some few more soundtracks~~
- Enchanted – Gotta love Amy Adams singing The Happy Working Song.
- August Rush – Raise it Up was pretty cool too.
- Atonement – that damn typewriter! lol’
- Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street – Pretty Women~~~~ I will have VENGEANCE!!!
- Rent – The Motion Picture… though the version of La Vie Boheme sounds cooler in the Broadway version.
- Selma Songs – The soudntrack for Dancer in the Dark
- Les Chansons d’Amour soundtrack – the French film Love Songs. Pretty awesome stuff.
Happy music hunt!
So, I was trying to get lyrics by LAST ALLIANCE, but it seems almost impossible… so as with the Kobukuro lyrics, I’ll try to find them and post them up. Thanks to Unexpected Fate, and once again Mognet.net.
