Full Cycle YAM – 007

December 15, 2009 — 1 Comment

Congrats, Amy! You’ve made it a year!
Now please, get to work on that website you’ve been talking about all this time.

Yeah, where is Nate? Yeah, that. Nate and I are working on something else, which is nothing at the moment… just a random gig, which will hopefully fuel our bank accounts a bit and let us work on YAM fully for a month or two…


This is Julz 2nd straight cover. Hooray! Omedetou!!!

In it she covered the Stockholm Film Festival… met Susan Sarandon xD, there’s a Q&A with Sin Nombre director Cary Fukunaga, reviews for Precious, Up in the Air, Koreeda’s Air Doll, Map of the Sounds of Tokyo, The Cove, Thirst, Dexter Season 4, Sasameki Koto, Family Outing, Les Amants Papillons, 2pm, Shinee, Rihanna, The Swell Seasons, Crowd Lu and more! Oh yeah! There’s also a Julz BSB concert review of their Worldwide This Is Us tour, and some Eva Ayllon. Coz we love variety…

check it out over here.

This is a YAM update

We’re beginning official work on YAM007.

I’m pushing for a Crowd Lu review from someone (since I don’t really speak Chinese, it would be beneficial, right?) — Someone will be doing This Is It and even offer himself to review New Moon, which lessens my “I don’t really wanna watch this, but have to” load.

I’m looking for people to review… hopefully, An Education and Precious — cue Julz — and also looking for people interested in reviewing True Blood (the current seasons, or just the latest one), Mad Men Season 3, and if you feel like it Dexter Season 5.

All other current films (that haven’t been rated or reviewed in previous issues), latest music releases from around the world (released on October, November and December have priority over other 2009 releases), other shows that are finishing seasons~~~ and ANY books, since we are not picky with those. Ha!

Down the Idol-hole~~~

On the topic of Julz’ last YAM feature about fans and fandoms and the whole idol deal, I saw Julie & Julia this afternoon. It’s been ages since I’ve been to the cinema. First, let me say~~~ Meryl Streep is LURV as Julia Child. I totally cracked up each time she was on screen. I didn’t really care much for Amy Adam’s character, but Adams was lovable.

In the movie, Julie is sort of a very big fan of Julia Child, which reminded me of Julz’ article. She sets out to make all of Child’s recipes in the period of a year, and by the end of the film you see her confronting the idea of her idolized Julia Child version to the real life Julia Child, when she finally says “I don’t ever wanna meet her.” LOL

Wonder how many fans have reached that idea.

Early YAM006!

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~~~

I want to get over with this issue. If you visit the site, you already knew that I was going to add Yu Aoi to my list of Actors to Watch Until They’re 30, right? The issue here was which position I would place her… well, you’d be surprised to know that I didn’t place her on my #1, but she’s closed to it. She’s in fact #2 on my list based on the fact that not many people know about her outside the J-film watchers… but you (non Japanese film watcher) totally should.
