First… I can’t believe The Voice of China left me with a cliffhanger.

The selection process for The Voice of China is done, and I had already picked my favorites… so it’s time for Liu Huan to sort out his picks and do a deadly — seriously, DEADLY — cut. From the first round of duo battles, my favorite performance was Quan Zhendong (权振东) Vs. Jianing Combination (佳宁组合) singing Winter is Coming (冬天来了).

The show is seriously riddled with major talent — so much that Liu Huan really feels it when he cuts people — but since everyone is so talented, I feel like everyone deserves to be there. Some VERY hard choices were made. Almost by the end of the show, when you thought you’d seen it all, Liu Yue (刘悦) went out there and gave the OMG moment of the episode (after a rather weak duo battle, if I may say).

Having said that, if the competition doesn’t work for Quan Zhendong, I think he should totally get together with Jianing Combination because they had great chemistry, and I think they were the most difficult to pick from.

Now that I’m chronicling my journey through The Voice of China with my opinion on Harlem Yu’s team, I guess I have to tell you my thoughts on Liu Huan’s. Surprisingly enough, I only had two favorite FAVORITES~ The first one was Liu Yue [1] and then Summer (who ended up winning this episode) [1]. But overall I thought Liu Huan’s team had a very good vocal quality.

YouTube captioning is a great idea, but I guess it’s hard to do when taking into consideration sometimes people slur their words and there’s background music~~~ but getting there…

I think it’s time for me to give back to Shirley Holmes fandom.

After years and years of Damon, the webmaster of Shirley Holmes Central, giving to the fandom… and even uploading the episodes (I’m mad excited about this!), I have decided to take on the subtitling cap. I’ve just began testing subtitling software, but I think I’m settling for Easy Subtitles. They seem to be easy enough to use.

I actually would kill to be able to get my Shirley tapes with Spanish Latino dubs and get the audio on Damon’s videos to have dual audio, but I’m apparently technologically impaired to do that.

So I’m settling for subtitles.

I’ve just begun, and I need some time to get used to the software, so I have no idea how long this is going to take.

Oh.Ma.Gosh.

I knew Bibi could do impersonations, but this is too much. Positively good and quite hilarious. I’m not a very huge Bruno Mars fan, I think he’s composition (especially lyrics-wise) and performance in general could improve, but I’m not denying him some merits. His singles are pleasantly catchy.

I’m a huge Bibi fan, but I’ve often talked about what I think her performances are lacking. So as the years have gone by, I think this is the first year that I’ve seen her completely comfortable performing live. Those hints of awkwardness are gone giving way to something in her eyes, something within her that makes her at ease on stage.

Like she’s allowed to be silly on stage without worries.

Dude, she did a little number on Beyonce’s Single Ladies [1], Lady Gaga’s Born this Way [1], and I can’t mention enough how she killed it when she did that Aaron Kwok number [1].

I’m a loving this Bibi.

YouTube version has just made its appearance.

It’s all about money, of course. The International Olympic Committee wants to retain all the control of its brand — who can blame them? — and to retain its control online, it took the social media control from the London Olympic committee, unlike what happened back at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics.

To Olympics lovers’ surprise, the Vancouver Olympic Committee was allowed free social media range, which they put to good use with online apps, tweeting athletes interacting with fans, the whole shebang [1]. I don’t actually care about online apps (nor Vancouver’s nor London’s), and I don’t care if athletes tweet. My only interest in the Olympics is watching the games and finding photographs xD

Cool photo, huh?
