Jpop: The Girls on the Bus

For the second time, I’ve become a bit enamoured by a jpop music videos for both its songs catchiness as well as (or perhaps moreso) for the cuteness of the singers. This time, it’s the unlikely-I-can-pronounce-correctly Joshi Kashimashi Monogatari by the always-the-cutest, Morning Musume. If you’re wonder what they’re saying (as I was, a few loops later) here is a translation both into Romaji (the japanese kanji translated into roman-alphabet sound clusters) and English meanings. Similarly to the previous fave entry, each member is featured in their own little section, but this time actually going into some detail about them personally. If they continue this trend of individually recognizing/featuring (although I realize these videos are some years old by now) I’ll have to be hooked beyond any reasonable doubt =P

Vidz – Andy McKee YT Compilation

Dear Dear! I hadn’t realized it’s been nearly a month since my last post. Sounds like something I’d write on my reunion site =P Anyhow, I’ve come across an amazing acoustic guitar and harp-guitar musician, named Andy McKee. He performs something called drifting, that, although the term sounds like a cheap attempt on snagging a buzzword, the actual feat is rather more amazing and clever to me than creative steering of foreign automobiles. Submitted for your perusal, I bring you my YouTube link colly of Andy McKee vidz.. including Heather’s Song, Shanghai, Keys to the Hovercar, The Friend I Never Met, For My Father, Into the Ocean, Rylynn, Drifting, Dreamcatcher, Africa, and my favorite, Tight Trite Night. You can check out his personal site at AndyMcKee.com or pop over to his vendor’s site at CandyRat.com. Enjoy!
