Weibo Misses You, Shu Qi

September 15, 2012 — Leave a comment

Netizens, you are ruining my fun way too often for my liking. It’s not enough that you’re bullying Tony Leung out of a possible dream project with Kiyoshi Kurosawa~ I’m still super sour that you bullied away Shu Qi from her usual activities on Weibo.

You know, I used to didn’t like Shu Qi. I actually tried using a nice photoshoot photo of her, but I couldn’t pick one that I liked enough. It turns out, though, that I love Shu Qi when she’s acting- like, I can’t get enough of her. I think what made me turn around and start liking her was following her on Weibo, when she used to post things like this.

Now she doesn’t post anything this fun and personal. Her posts are limited (since she’s been back after her Weibo pull out) to Buddha related posts. And she’s no longer receiving comments, except from people she follows.

Okay, fine. I miss you on Weibo, Shu Qi. xD

Welcome to another random edition of Wannabe Distributor!

Today’s pick of film is the Taiwan/China co-production of LOVE (愛LOVE).

Am I starting a series? Nah… I don’t think I can come up with a Jpop list xD

Unlike the Kpop list which it focused 99% of the time on dance pop friendly tracks that went beyond American commercial pop, this “Cpop” list is… not really pop.

Popular music in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Mainland China (but mostly Taiwan) tends to be pop/rockish flare. Sure there are dance pop friendly, but even they have moved or are moving more towards pop/rock. They also love indie flavor, and accept not particularly attractiveness in their idols… even though there are some very good looking people who are immensely popular.

To be completely honest, compared to Korea’s pop music charts, Chinese music charts have a broad variety. But then again, compared to Japan’s pop music charts (which is comprised of AKB48 and Arashi xD), even Kpop charts (mostly 2NE1 and Big Bang now that DBSK is gone) seem to have some variety. xD

So this list of great Chinese music includes varying genres from R&B, pop/rock… more rockish, ballads (regular and of the indie type), etc. once again listed by year of release.

Again, it’s a bit weak on the earlier years… but you are welcome to make suggestions (for any year). A few guidelines would be that they cannot be too indie (I couldn’t fit Cheer Cheen or Mavis Fan in the list because they don’t feel completely pop, if you know what I mean), must include MVs (so songs released as singles), not older than late 90s.

Also… song must work as MV too. So no awesome songs but tacky videos. Sorry.

What do you like about the Cpop industry?

Who are your fave artists?

It feels like FOREVER.
Just like Paris, Je t’Aime.
When did I first blog the trailer??
Nearly a year ago~~~

New York I Love You Poster

How do you feel about the poster? Better than the first image, I think. But Paris, Je t’Aime pawns.

Just like before, the collection of shorts has loads of people. Natalie Portman has two shorts in it, one as an actress on Mira Nair’s short, and one directing (exciting!) – most exciting? Shunji Iwai’s short!! Though it’s with Orlando Bloom, Shunji Iwai makes movie magic oftentimes~ And I’ve been waiting new Shunji Iwai films since… since… since Hana & Alice which was released in 2004.

Not like I waited since 2004, since I just discovered him. LOL

I just saw the new commercial for Chanel N5 featuring Audrey Tautou directed by Amelie fellow-director Jean Pierre Jeunet. I personally think they work great together, visually their work is stunning… and this ad is no exception.

Audrey Tautou - Chanel N5

I think perfume commercials are very pretty to look at, even though I don’t really buy their products hahaha, but I gotta give them props for them. Anyway, the ad made me think of other perfume commercials I have previously enjoyed watching…
