Archives For interview

I didn’t know Doona spoke English this great, but I’m more delighted to see how expressive she is when she talks. xD

No wonder she placed on #2 on my list three years ago, and I lvoe her even more so than I did then. If I were making that list again, she would be my #1.

I remember when I was in fifth grade I saw my grandfather die. There he was, lying motionless on the bed. I was close to my grandfather. He taught me how to write. I remember thinking, “If this is the end of life, that means we don’t have to take everything too seriously.” Children who grow up without seeing death don’t have that realization.

Zhou Xun on Life, Death, and its Impact on Children

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. :\

Brown Eyed Girls has been very busy this week promoting their upcoming Xmas +19 shows in Seoul. Besides doing SNL Korea, they’ve been doing all sorts of interviews. In the latest one on Guerilla Date, they talked different things like what would Ga-In erase of her past, who’d be the one to get married first…. and they talk about their ideal type (??), which JeA says Josh Hartnett with the following message:

jea-brown-eyed-girls-guerilla-date

… which, of course, it’s hilarious.

I honestly think she did say “I will meet you” (with a really pronounced ‘t’ by the end of ‘meet’). I’m not sure where the “to” in the caption comes from… if it’s either a regular typo happening in Asian varieties, or if it is indeed part of the joke that she said “meet to.”

You can watch it here.

You know when sometimes you watch an interview with who you think is your favorite band or artist, but the interview is so bland that your fanaticism just dies a little bit and your love for the subject is never the same?

SunnyHill passed the test. Even in this short interview.

And you know what’s even cooler? LOEN subtitling their videos, specially with groups that don’t have massive large fandoms like SunnyHill or Brown Eyed Girls. It’s a great feature. So thank you so much, LOEN, for the hard work and the effort.
