Happy new year, everyone!

Sorry for the lack of posts last month. To make up for it, here are five posts so you can catch up to my 2013 and to get you going this 2014.

My purty iTunes Library~

April 22, 2011 — 4 Comments

I’m a dork, you can’t deny it.

I’m a dork, and I’m proud of my -mostly- tidied up iTunes library.

As with my CDs, and my DVDs… a little bit of books, and mostly with computer files, I like to know where my things are. Of course, iTunes makes it way easy to keep things organized with their “copy to folder” and “keep things organized” options, but then we’ve got album covers, song names, artists names… and music can get a little messy.

Top-Rated Songs of 2010

April 7, 2011 — 2 Comments

I know it’s pretty late, but I guess that I always put the list off because there was always that “haven’t listened to that yet” issue. I will be probably adding 2010 stuff later on, but it won’t hurt to put my top rated songs — according to iTunes and iPod numbers.

Surprisingly, or not surprisingly… the majority of top-rated songs that are equal or greater than 5 stars are Asian artists with their Asian songs and albums. LOL As you know, I’m trying to mix everything up with languages, so I’m also trying to pick one song per artist xD

I hope you like this compilation, there are links to preview the tracks… and also links to buy the albums via affiliate programs, so if you like anything – please support this blog (or YAM)

LivingSocial Albums~

Divided on whether or not buy the Monkey Majik Best collection because the album doesn’t have the oh-so-sweet Forever version with the kiddos and the old people. As if I could hate rainbows and puppies!

Then there’s Mavis Fan 1999 album, I Want Us to Be Together – so SO freaking-tastic. Frak! This type of albums is what makes me wish I could understand Mandarin, and makes Chinese music all sorts of awesome.

I am considering purchasing the newest release by Monkey Majik for their 10th anniversary. There’s the Japan Normal edition at $32 USD, and the Japanese First Press Edition which comes with a DVD for $43 USD.

Of course, if you don’t know – Monkey Majik has just gotten their Guiness World Record for longest On Air commercial, for the CM they did for this Best of Album… which lasts 30min — the commercial, not the album. But trust me, it’s so worth watching it, when you get the time. They’re pretty awesome, even with their funny Japanese.

Anyway, this Best Of album contains 3 new songs, titled Forever, Fast Forward, and Daijoubu. Forever is such a great song, the video totally plays to the little heart. I think it even works better than Canada’s attempt to help Haiti with Waivin’ Flag (though that was a pretty good song by K’naan, it got overplayed for this and the World Cup), and it totally beats the remake of We Are the World.

So here we go, Goran kudasai! Douzo~
