Hope you enjoyed the extra week of Jrock Christmas tunes. Now that Spring semester has officially started, I’ll now have access to internet that doesn’t freeze up on me after every word I type.

I wasn’t aware Nick Jr. promoted such great Japanese rock bands!

Cornelius on Darfur Benefit CD

November 28, 2007

Now you can support a good cause and J-rock at the same time!

“Causes 1 is a limited edition charity CD to benefit Darfur, which includes exclusive and rare tracks donated by Animal Collective, The Black Keys, Bloc Party, Bright Eyes, Cornelius, The Cure, David Sylvian, Death Cab for Cutie, The (International) Noise Conspiracy, The Shins remixed by Clint Mansell, Spoon, Teargas & Plateglass, Thievery Corporation and Travis.

100% of the proceeds from the sale of this CD will go to three non-profit organizations: Doctors Without Borders, Human Rights Watch, and Oxfam America.

We urge you to help those working in Darfur by picking up your copy of the album.

Although estimates of the number of people killed by the conflict in Darfur vary widely from 200,000 to 400,000, what is certain is that more than 2 million people have fled their homes because of the fighting, and 4 million are now in need of humanitarian assistance—making this one of the worst crises in the world today.”

so it’s been a while

May 21, 2007

So today is the start of my 2nd week off from school.  As such I’ve done absolutely nothing since -.-  I went to Anime Central (ACEN) last Saturday where Spiral Spiders and High and Mighty Color performed.  Unfortunately, I was unaware that you needed a ticket and they were sold out by the time I got to the booth.  Maybe next year!  I was going to do an ACEN report on my *comic* blog but as it turns out there’s not much to talk about.

In any case, I went to Best Buy yesterday and they had the new Cornelius cd in stock.  I didn’t expect to find it there but I snatched it up with my 10% off coupon.

Also if anyone’s interested DRUM:KAN‘s cd is available for preorder on interpunk.

Now that school’s out, hopefully I can find out more to do with this blog.


New Releases April 24th

April 24, 2007

It’s not that often that 2 Japanese artists release cds in America on the same day, it’s even less often that I remember. Funny how I was at Best Buy today and totally forgot to check. I doubt most would have them anyway, especially OOIOO.

Cornelius- Sensuous (US edition)

It has come to my attention that Cornelius’s 2006 album, Sensuous, is coming to record stores in the United States! Yes! This was one of my favorite releases from last year. A wonderful album of ambient and techno beats. It will be released through Everloving Records on April 24, 2007.
