See, this would be a mega-talent post if NHK would only let me embed Shiina Ringo’s performance at the latest Kouhaku, but no~~~ they gotta make things difficult.

Anyway, I think I may have died a little and gone to heaven. One of my wishes from last year may be coming true or something. Faye Wong singing new material — for New Year nonetheless — it’s like the creative muses got together and made Shiina Ringo and Faye Wong perform so close to one another, some babies may have been born with no talent at all because the concentration of it might be too much. LOL

as per usual with Faye Wong stuff, I have no idea what this song may be call except for Yuan (愿) which can mean “desire, wish, hope, willing, ready” — take your pick. You can listen to the studio version here.

The live version is… off, apparently Faye — diva and all – recognized she messed up a bit. I’m really blaming her time off stage, but it doesn’t matter… I can just LOOT AT HER. THAT STAGE. That stage is stunning beyond words. I can salivate looking at that stage and love that I can see it in high definition… there are just no proper words to describe it.

Thanks to Cfensi for the heads up.

Happy 2012!

How was the new year celebration?

Most importantly~ did you catch adorable Mana-chan performing? If you didn’t, the Maru Maru Mori Mori performance blended with the Arashi/Disney performance and anything with Disney is full of win for me. I found you this link on Nate.com of the Disney performance.

Mana-chan also had the most graceful fall on stage, that I swear it’s going to last all year and be name Most Graceful On-Stage Fall of 2012~~~ which wasn’t even 2012, but just for the sake of upload times, it was.

You can read my “review” of this years show over in: NHK scouts the web for clips, but we can’t help by talk about the Kouhaku~ blog post.

YAM008 for the Metal Tiger~

Happy Chinese New Year!

Yes, it’s your favorite movie to hate. LOL

We’ve got a very cool issue this month, but I’m not gonna ramble what’s in it.
Just head over here to download it and read it.

Happy Holidays~

Hi, everyone~

I doubt there will be any significant posting today.

how did you spend the holiday? Mine was spent over-eating with the family. I also had to work on some photographs to give away… and I also manage to reduce my list of Best Songs of the Decade to 150. However, I don’t like the number 150… so I’m gonna make myself erase 50 songs from there, or resign myself to accept 150 as a good number… whichever comes first.

I also wanted to watch The Princess and the Frog, and since my mother is a fan of Disney I asked her if she wanted to go, but she said there’ll be too many people… which is kinda true, and we DO hate being in the same place as loads of people… and we tend to hate children. Perhaps on Monday.

I’m also still trying to get through Dan Brown’s The Lost Symbol — his previous books weren’t that difficult to read, why can’t I finish this one??? I just find it kinda boring.

I’ll also try to watch Invictus, and An Education over the weekend.

Happy Earth Ox Year!!!

I tend to say I’m an Oxger, well… because people always used to say “1986 – Tiger” so I always thought I was a tiger until the day I was writing a small write-up on it, and went “wha? WAIT! wait a minute… I’m not a tiger?”

And with the couple of years of reading, I always noticed I’ve got both of their traits. So I decided… Amy’s an Oxger xD

Other cool Oxes? Well, Yu’s an Ox – It’s Yu’s year!!

I know not to trust everything I read online, but Ox year is supposed to be good for Oxes (Yay for Yu, Yay for me) – but then again, if the horoscope I read is right… I rather it NOT be. It’s a pretty horrible year for BOTH my parents who are Monkey and Horse. So I’d rather they have a better year, than me having an extraordinary year. I’m happy with the ordinary, if it means better for other people.
