The VAMPS homepage has an attractive photo of the band...(vampire-mode, still?) But the new single's CD cover is absurdly ugly. The songs are pretty bad, too. Ahead/Replay

I'm fond of watching the kpop boy band, SHINee dance and sing. They are a really busy music group; 2 korean mini-albums and 1 japanese album this year already. Their music is fun and their choreography is energetic.

Also liking 2PM's newer stuff. Their choreography borders on cheesy at times or at least too theatrical. Btw, it's nice that some of the Kpop companies are putting subtitles on their youtube videos.

It'd be nice if Jpop companies would at least put full versions of their artist's videos online...or HD videos or both. They are slower at sharing their music. Looky, Mr. Children just opened their youtube page with full videos...<3 I still like this song.

is at 6pm tomorrow?

The new Hagaren trailer looks mildly interesting. The new characters look like they are coming from another show.

Good Luck My Way would be an ok title if they inserted another word in there somewhere. And it sounds unsurprisingly like their other Hagaren songs. L'Arc En Ciel's 20th Anniversary song...makes me smile anyway. If only it meant that VAMPS was going away. Hyde has some interesting pants in the video. :)

FT Island released their first Japanese album last week. I think it's pretty good. They need to make more PVs. Treasure on youtube. They have a new Korean mini album coming out next week.

And CN Blue is taking a break. Byebye. Time for them to participate in dramas and variety shows.

I think this is the official youtube link to the Banmal song from this week's WGM Goguma couple. Very sweet.

Purple gogumas were on sale this week at the asian groceries. I hope they are tasty.

Went out to half a dozen places this morning and was thankful that the traffic was light. There's still plenty of shopping time...I need a new car.

Togainu no chi 12! finally, the end. The funky chanting music in the beginning of the episode was amusing. Akira realized that Keisuke was his one true love or something equally deep. And escapes Toshima to brood and whine. This show was just terrible; awful production, story and characters. ~4/10 rating~ I think I watched the whole thing because of Akira's resemblance to Squall (FF8).

ETA: Music Japan's holiday show featured Laruku's comeback with winterfall and RSG and feathers! I also enjoyed Yui's song and Arashi's performance with the kids.

Woke up to see that Miyavi's Tokyo concert just started online. Pretty awesome for him to stream all his concerts online live this summer. He's one jp artist who consistently tweets in english, and actively tries to reach a global audience. It's kinda funny since he commented on why people would record his shows (while he as touring overseas earlier this year), want to upload, and have other people watch the mediocre quality on youtube. Ustream's video and sound quality are decent for this. It's still going if you are awake. Over now, lasted about an hour. :)

Bad Guy 9-10! Gun-wook gets promoted...and gets a new haircut--less shaggy, more pimp-like butler? During the mask-themed exhibit opening, Tae-seong and Gun-wook switch places for a little bit. Tae-seong is becoming more like a cute kid when he's learning to do commoner things with Jae-in though he does revert to being a brat when he's uncomfortable. Gun-wook is kind enough to give his rival opportunities to get the girl he himself likes. It's kinda fun to root for both guys, since essentially, they sorta both want the family to get slapped in the face. Since Tae-seong isn't the first-born heir, there's more incentive to cheer for the family's downfall. The women in that family and the older brother aren't given any likable traits, and because of that, Gun-wook's seduction of the two sisters is still amusing. Episode 10 is a good episode, but it makes you want to smack Jae-in for walking out on Gun-wook. That dinner is was so sad. As a side note, I like the style of his apartment and the artsy clutter.

Namie Amuro's music is hit or miss with me; much of it sounds the same, but I like the new song, Get Myself Back. Mellow...like Baby Don't Cry.

Not fond of the supercell songs with the digital voice, but do like when they use a real person's voice. Utakata Hanabi is the newest song..some interesting animation in the pv.

PV dump

Jul. 16th, 2010 07:02 am
Those Laruku members are busy this summer...
Hyde/VAMPS' My First Last PV - didn't they just release a PV a week ago...interesting ballad, too much engrish, I bet it took 5:11 min to shoot that video.

Tetsuya's Looking for Light PV - tons better than his Heroman theme song, and still a happy-sounding pop song.

Ken's solitary stroll PV - moody as always...angsty writer he is.

Yukihiro/acid android's violent parade PV - released a month ago...still a bad singer, but out of the three, the most experimental sound, that is to say, the least Laruku-ish.

VAMPS' Revolution PV is one of Hyde's more interesting PVs in recent years. I did have to look up the yelling...I wasn't sure what he was saying.

I like the new album, Beast. It was pre-released on itunes.jp (Can't say the price ~$24 for LQ 160k is all that fair, but whatever). There's a fair amount of engrish which isn't that great. I do like the increase in variety of types of songs compared to the previous album.
