Song of the Week for Sep. 30th, 2012

The last song of September: SWEET RAIN SWEET HOME by Fuzzy Control There’s something simple about this song that makes it likable. It’s not terribly fast nor involving, but it keeps the same tone throughout the song. This is actually the first song I have heard from this band. I don’t know if this style …

Star Fox Adventures is a good game, IGN

The fact that I am mentioning IGN in the title of this blog post is amazing, considering I wouldn’t consider the site worthy of being mentioned. It’s not that it’s a terrible website. It’s that they sometimes bring up meaningless debates, let alone the times they post articles or reviews that are simply poorly written. They recently …

Song of the Week for Sep. 23rd, 2012

Here’s an interesting one: ダンデライオン by Bump of Chicken I really like Bump of Chicken. I think they do a fantastic job lyrically, and it helps that they know how to make a song sound good, too. This song is interesting because the pace and tone don’t exactly fit the lyrics. The lyrics start with talking …

Song of the Week for Sep. 16th, 2012

Here’s a good one: 17才 by Base Ball Bear This song is so good that I sang it at karaoke twice in the same day. It was the first time I had ever sung it at karaoke, and it was so good I just had to sing it again. This really could be a perfect …

The Wii U Price(s)

Finally, we have information on Nintendo’s pricing of the Wii U in North America: $299-Basic 8GB Bundle (white only) $349-Deluxe 32GB Bundle with Nintendo Land (black only) It’s funny how everyone who predicted $299 says they were right and everyone who said $349 says they were right. The bundle that I predicted would be $319 …

Song of the Week for Sep. 9th, 2012

I may be doing all JPop songs this month. Here’s another Japanese song: MirrorDance by androp The music video alone is an achievement. The first time you hear this song, you’ll likely like the chorus more than the rest of the song. All good songs have good choruses of course. I think this song does …

What was Facebook

Facebook was a way to connect with people. I could contact people I hadn’t heard from in a long time. It was somewhat invaluable in this aspect. One of my friends changed his cell phone number, and respective e-mail address, and I was able to contact him again only because we were Facebook friends. That …

Song of the Week for Sep. 2nd, 2012

Welcome to September. Sonic Fireworks by avengers in sci-fi Here is a song (and a music video) that is almost too good. The song is so intricate with its techno-inspired beats that never feel too heavy or forced. The techno sound is to be expected by avengers in sci-fi, and they use many techniques well …
