mika-ninagawa-sakuran

I ran into two really cool posts on Mika Ninagawa- one sort of talking about her work — mentioning her style and her work with the likes of Shiina Ringo, Bjork and- of course, Anna Tsuchiya — and the other a quite rare (and insightful) interview in English.

I’ve been kind of dying to see Helter Skelter. I haven’t even checked if there are subtitles available yet.

I guess people can’t stand true stars because they are so different, they’d rather watch some stupid proxies they can sympathize with.

I guess we do live in the era of the dying movie star. :\

The Tokyo Shimbun (東京新聞) has developed an application for children to help them read their newspaper — difficult kanjis and all — by translating kanji into easy to read hiragana and other augmented reality features enhanced with animation and stuff.

I don’t think the Tokyo Shimbun realized that they’ve developed a tool for foreigners to read their newspaper. xD

Writing nonsensical dramatic lines that may or not be grammatically correct? xD

あなたが本当に大好きだから。そして。。。あなたを守るために、家族もを守るために、永遠にエイミ-ちゃんはここにあります。

or

お父さんー
お誕生日おめでとう!
私は元気、あなたも?
毎日いつも日本に楽しいかったです。
毎日も、お父さんと家族を思った。いろいろことが家族みたい。風、桜、鶴も、そのことがうちに思うっている。

How… did I not know about this Ayumi Ito appearance??? Oh yeah, I don’t follow AllKPop and nobody in Kpop knows Ayumi Ito. FML. Ayumi Ito starred alongside Lee Jong Suk (As One ???) in the 2011 music video for Longer (롱거) by CHI CHI (oh, these Korean group names…). In it, Ayumi plays a woman whose boyfriend cheated on her with the woman (???) who is Jong Suk’s girlfriend in the story.
