Mizca gets me hot (on the dancefloor)

November 25, 2009

Watch out Lady Gaga!  Mizca is on the scene with blue tights and an attractive posterior. This is the new electro project from Masami Mitsuoka (I watched some videos on youtube–not enough A.S.S.).  It remains to be seen if this project meets with success or is another failed attempt at becoming an idol. In any case, I enjoyed watching this PV several times today.

If you didn’t click the above link, here is the single’s cover in all it’s glory: Read the rest of this entry ?

Genki Sudo: From UFC to JPOP

November 20, 2009

Acclaimed mixed martial artist Genki Sudo may have retired in 2006, but now he’s one step closer to his dream of becoming a JPOP legend. If you thought Genki’s flying leg-triangle choke or spinning backfist techniques were impressive, just check out this son of a gun’s dance moves…

Happy Thanksgiving, all

November 24, 2007

A few days late but better than never.  I hope that everyone had a blessed holiday of stuffing their faces full of turkey.  Last week, this blog hit 20,000 views, a milestone perhaps.  Thanks to all the people who visit this site everyday.  You’d be happy to know that I do intend on posting a mixtape here within the next few weeks, depends on how many papers I need to hand in by the end of the semester.  In the meantime, here’s a humorous video I found the other day.  Backstreet Boys vs. SMAP.  It’s from some kind of music show from Japan, I don’t care to figure out which.  The look on Nick Carter’s face when one of the SMAP guys rubs up on him is priceless.

Ami Suzuki- Free Free

August 22, 2007

Another Capsule related post, Ami Suzuki’s new single Free Free/Super Music Maker came out in Japan today.  The single was produced by Capsule member Nakata Yasutaka.  Free Free is an amazingly happy song and is great to drive to.  Not to mention, Ami is hot as hell in this video.

OK enough with the Jpop more rock music next time…

Live Earth: The Concerts for a Climate in Crisis

July 9, 2007

 Al Gore’s Live Earth 2007 project was broadcast live on the internet and TV Friday night thru Saturday.  MSN has the entire concerts available to stream by artist and by song.  Japan was broken up into 2 sections, Tokyo and Kyoto.  Linkin Park and a few American rappers somehow made their way into the Tokyo concert, I would guess that they were touring in the country the same time.  I only got to see parts of the RIZE and Genki Rockets concerts previously when it was broadcasted live but there’s a few other’s I’m interested in.  Hopefully they’ll keep it up long enough for me to do so!

Tokyo

-Abingdon Boys School (rock side project of TM Revolution’s vocalist)

-AI

-Ayaka

-Cocco

-Genki Rockets (dance, jpop)

-Koda Kumi (jpop)

-Otsuka Ai

-RIZE (punk)

Kyoto
