My friend is super excited to be coming [1], so he sent me this video he ran into.

I did take a peek of the pizza in Cuzco I so want to have again. You know, it’s not very often I step on Cuzco.

I’m uncertain of the track, though, Fado by Galinhazz, some people say it’s kind of Spanish… maybe a little bit Flamenco-ish? I thought Arab. Maybe having to do with the Moors in Spain?

What started like a simple post, ended up taking a lot of hours of research and boy band video-watching. I may or not regret it.

Voila! The Ultimate Guide to Boy Bands of the 90s ~

There were boy bands I hadn’t even heard of… and some that I had to dust off my VHS tapes to get their names. Ha!

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. :\

So sue me! I have a Power Rangers tag on my blog.

I wanted to do a quick ranking for the Time Machine Blogathon, so I thought it was fair to rank only the seasons that I followed, which ended after the destruction of Zordon [1] back when Power Rangers in Space was done. Despite my watching of seldom episodes of Lost Galaxy, and even more random episodes of Lightspeed Rescue… maybe Time Force (can’t be 99% sure if I’ve watched that one), and OBVIOUSLY~ Dino Thunder (because Tommy was in it, xD), I feel the proper thing to do is to rank just those first few couple seasons while highlighting my favorite moments, my least favorite ones and stuff.

First things first~

Aquitar Rangers

Though not strictly a season on Power Rangers, I gotta give them a special mention as my least favorite rangers of the ones I’m ranking because I just hated that they had to come in because the others were turned into little kids. I don’t know why I didn’t like the little kids — being a little kid myself — but looking back on it, it feels like a cheap cop-out to have more rangers thrown into the Power Ranger universe.

The only highlight with their inclusion was that the leader was a girl. I haven’t seen that in others (certainly not from the ones I followed), but feel free to correct me.

I’m finally done with the latest version of Anna Karenina, which I’m sorry to say didn’t enjoy much. I generally have a love/hate relationship with Keira, but I just couldn’t stand Aaron Taylor. Mind you, I didn’t like him in Kick-Ass either, and it was meh on Albert Nobbs. During the whole movie, I kept thinking how Olivia Williams would’ve been as Anna Karenina.

Especially considering this photo, and how awesome that last scene could have been.
