アントキノイノチ (Life Back Then) Movie Review

I had been waiting for a while to see this movie. I finally saw it last night. What do I think? 8 out of 10 I suppose eight of ten is a pretty good score. I can’t say that this movie met my expectations. Rather, it went a slightly different route than I thought. I’d …

Song of the Week for Aug 26th, 2012

“On and On” by Chasen I find myself going to their MySpace to listen to this song frequently. This is a song I wish I could sing at karaoke. It’s partially because I think it’s good, and partially because I think I can sing it properly. Well, unless they become huge in Japan (or through …

Song of the Week for Aug 5th, 2012

I am temporarily (hopefully permanently?) bringing back the song of the week that I was doing a few years back. There seem to be “plenty” of songs I could do. Today, I will do one of a JPop band. I don’t know if I have done Japanese songs in the past, but I certainly have …

Revitalizing the Song of the Week

Next week, the Song of the Week feature that has been absent for nearly four years on this blog is returning. I have too many new songs under my belt not to be able to share a new song every week…or at least a few times every month. Now, there is a list of all …
