Man, BiBi is even looking cool from behind the scenes…

she’s really grown into her image.

Bibi for Men’s Uno

I guess we got two posts related to Bibi in a row. Let’s just say it’s to celebrate the release of her latest studio album, which I am calling… for the lack of a proper English title, Dark.Select.Clear

I really really LOVE this dirty photoshoot. I dunno about the awkward standing looking at the camera one, but the rest are pretty good. Okay, maybe not the holding the rocks ones either… but the rest exude sex appeal, something I’ve always felt was lacking in the photoshoots or performances she’s been doing…

Which only means one thing. You know that one thing that you notice in someone’s eye. It’s the glitter that suddenly sparks after you do that something. That something’s happened. Bibi’s got that look now.

Bibi for HotSpot

I ran into these kinda high resolution images of Bibi’s turn out over HotSpot, which look positively rocking. I don’t think Bibi’s ever looked as cool promoting an album since I found out about her.

First Elle China, then this… then there’s Men’s Uno, which I should find bigger resolution versions of that photoshoot, because that one is cool too.

This is my favorite shot xD

I gotta admit. I got a little choked up with this music video, and I’m totally pumped for Sodagreen’s upcoming new album… also titled What is Troubling You (你在煩惱什麼) — which, I have to admit~~~ comes at a bad time when Bibi is coming up with her new album and the Brown Eyed Girls are coming up with her nifty-licious repackaged Sixth Sense.

Did I tell you? I pre-ordered Sixth Sense and I ate it up like a sucker.

What makes me even more of a sucker, however, is that I had just pre-ordered the repackaged version too. Alongside Bibi’s new album.

Anyway, this new wonderfully sad and strangely uplifting music video comes from the brilliant mind of Muh Chen Yi Ren, from GrassJelly Studio — who also worked on my favorite Sodagreen MV… Incomparable Beauty [MV]. When these two get together, they make magic.

The lyrics seem… simple. I mean there’s not much lyrics… but I’m having issues with the double negative hahaha. I guess this is going to be my next Chinese class then!

Pinyin will do until then!

Farewell, Weslife

October 23, 2011 — Leave a comment

I find it strange that I got to find out Westlife is splitting up while on Weibo. I don’t know if that says how much I spend time there now, or if that only means I don’t follow the guys on Facebook or how much they matter or Twitter.

Anyway, Westlife going their separate ways after years… and years… feels weird as if I hadn’t been paying attention to this pop side of my life I used to have. My story with the band is a rather interesting one that started with a communication class group assignment where we had to make our very own radio show.

You can say I started my very first podcast back in the late 90s.
