Early YAM006!

October 8, 2009 — 5 Comments

So I wanted to make some time to work on those subtitles I was supposed to work on, and today is October 8th! So it’s perfect to release YAMM006, even if we are a little ahead.

Thanks to Julz for working so hard on the cover story, and all those reviews. ^^

On this  issue we review a lot of stuff, including Inglourious Basterds, Honokaa Boy, Mother, Treeless Mountain, Big Bang, G-Dragon, Arashi, BackStreet Boys, Imogen Heap, Olafur Arnalds, Chang Shilei, Juri Ueno and the Five Bags, Mad Men… Cusco Bizarro – and we even talk a bit about Glee, Dexter and House~~~

So head over here~~~

LOL

I know… just to close the month with something not charged.

I woke up this morning with a post by Electro^Plankton~

I don’t care what anybody says. I love them even without Kevin. Secretly I’m holding out for a full reunion with all 5 members, at least for a live performance.

that made me think it sounded like me. But read the post because it’s funny.

Anyway, the guys are releasing a brand new album (This is Us) this coming October (6th, in case you wonder) and apparently they’ll be going back to their old sound of R&B(ish) sounding Pop tunes that was so popular before, which to tell you the truth I’m not that thrill (not overly anyway) because I did enjoy their new sound, guitar driven rock-ish sounding pop ballads… but I did enjoy tracks like “Treat me Right” (produced by Nsync’s JC), so we’ll see…

In any case… BSB is promoting the album with the single Straight Through my Heart with a er… new video, which isn’t anything out of this world, but it has nice colors xD – but it does have cheesy vampire eyes and stuff~~~, and then there’s RollingStones who has a new interview up in their website.

Call them pop’s longest-running, most persistent group. Call them men, not boys. Just don’t call it a comeback.

For some reason it seems like the person who wrote the article was told to do an article on them, and she didn’t want to. It happens… after all Rolling Stones works with record companies to secure promotion and stuff.

I just want to hear what Max Martin can produce now… xD
If You Seek Amy wasn’t a let down xD and I’m pretty sure Bad Influence had his credits also.

I was looking back on music videos this past weekend (which, by the way marked amy-wong.com’s 4th anniversary) because I was watching Michael Jackson music videos and thinking “wow, how come I don’t like watching music videos now” – at least I don’t watch videos of most music I listen to in English, though I’m generally impressed with Asian Pop Music Videos.

When I was little, well… a pre-teen and teenage girl fuzzing about the Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears with my friends at school, I began to notice director’s names. MTV (which I pretty much used to watch almost 24/7) used to show the Name of the Song + Name of the Artist + Name of Album + Name of Director. They did this until the beginning of 2002 or 2003 when the Director’s name suddenly disappeared from the credits. I dunno if it’s back, and I dunno if it was because I just went to Canada. LOL

One of the first names I noticed was, of course, Nigel Dick.

If I could describe Nigel Dick’s style of music-video-making when I was a kid, I would say “simply brilliant” – not because I was naive and didn’t really know much about the business, but because his videos were simple, but yet so full of life. Perhaps, the easiest way to show it is with a simple video such as Oasis’ Wonderwall.
