My Death by Laughter

So its been a while peeps, HA! I bet you missed me! …Or us… OR perhaps you didn’t even notice the lack of updates?!  Indeed.  ANYWAY!  I has returned with a video to entertain and hopefully suffocate you from ceaseless laughter!  …I speak from experience (my face still hurts).  I have never hoped for my face muscles to not strain more than I have during the watching of this video!

I bring you Olan Rogers!  One of the funniest storytellers I have had the fortune of finding (on tumblr fyi).  He’s hilarious! I love his stories, his personality, his laugh, his friend/roommate!  Aish, he seems like a great guy and its always fun watching him.

Here’s my personal favourite:

Check out all his videos at OlanRogers Youtube Channel.  Like his vids, subscribe to him, stalk him on twitter!!  Not that I do that. <.<  Also make sure you check out his Dare On Dare series you’ll be ROFLing for sure!


Violin to the Heart

So I finally got my violin a new bow!  And thus I have been sucked and warped into a freaking hole of obsessive violin self-teaching and grueling hours of finger-cises.  Yes its painful but I love (and missed) this instrument waaay more than I had imagined.  Anywho in honor of my latest discovery, I bring you Violin Spam!  Enjoy~

This one is my favourite.

And of course never forget the Zelda spam:
cause Zelda always sounds more beautiful on violin (or stringed instruments in general)


Big Bang 5th Mini-Album

So its official Big Bang’s latest release will indeed be a mini-album.  Though I’m pretty sure many fans are kind of bummed at the lack of full albums, this new installment of BB’s musical careers has been promised to be the best one ever! Or so says YG, right??  Well regardless of what critics, haters, VIPs, and sasaengs will think about it my bias is pretty hardcore so I’m bound to love whatever BB has to offer.  Here’s the track list released by YG as of today (yesterday in Korea?)

Title tracks have been confirmed to be songs 3 and 4 (Love Dust and Bad Boy respectively), and the last song (#7) is a solo by DaeSung called “Wings”.  As you guys can see GD and Teddy and Choice37 (along with others) worked on this album so its bound to be amazing.  Lets look forward to it and welcome it with lots of LURVE!!

PS: Apparently a February comeback equals on the very last day of February (on the virtual day that isn’t suppose to exist)….. YG logic *shuns*


Bendita Tu Luz – Mana feat. Juan Luis Guerra

Troll Post! Ha, since I didn’t feel like surfing the web for something new (and after seeing Ash’s post below) I decided to post a filler post of one of my most favourtie songs!  Its a song about two young people who happen to be sitting at the right place at the right time, they meet and fall in love.  The whole song is pretty much a big thank you to God, destiny/fate for letting them meet. Its such a beautiful song, that I almost cry every time TT_TT  I hope you guys enjoy it.

Mana Official Youtube Channel

For those who don’t speak/understand spanish here’s the translation:

Blessed be the place, and the reason to be there
Blessed be the coincidence
Blessed be the clock, which took us there at the nick of time
Blessed be your presence

Blessed be God for putting us in each other’s way
And for removing this loneliness from my fate

Blessed be the light, blessed be your gaze
Blessed be the light, blessed be your gaze
From your soul

Blessed eyes which avoided me
Faking they were ignoring me
And suddenly, you hold your gaze

Blessed be God for putting us in each other’s way
And for removing this loneliness from my fate

Blessed be the light, blessed be your gaze
Blessed be the light, blessed be your gaze

Divine glory which gave me luck
And I found you just there in the middle of the way
Glory to the heavens for finding you now
For taking away my loneliness and for being part of my fate
The same fate

Blessed be the light, blessed be your gaze
Blessed be the light, blessed be your gaze
Blessed glance
Blessed glance from the soul, your gaze
Blessed, blessed, blessed gaze
Blessed be your soul and blessed be your light

Your glance oh, oh, oh
I say, so blessed is your light, love, love
Blessed be the clock and blessed be the place
Blessed be your kisses near the sea
And your gaze, love, love
So blessed your gaze, your gaze, love

New Boy Band: BAP

TS Entertainment’s new boy!band BAP has made it on to the Kpop scene!  Though I don’t know much about them myself at the moment, I did take the time to watch their recent MV for their single called Warrior.  Its give a really strong impression imo, and I actually really liked it.  Especially their dance style.  They kind of remind me of a more boyish (more hardcore) version of Shinee for some reason.  They have potential, I think.  They seem to be a cut above the recent influx of generic boy!bands, of course only time will tell how well they do.  Best of luck!

Track list for their single:

(Intro) Burn It Up
Warrior
Unbreakable
Secret Love (feat. Song Ji Eun

Here’s their latest MV: Warrior’

 What do you guys think??


Fun Theory and Living in the Fast Lane

Hey peeps! Was looking thru facebook and our dear friend Jae posted a video that I found quite entertaining.  The VolksWagen initiative to get people to live unconventionally (would that be right?).  From actually using stairs, to actually enjoying elevator rides, throwing trash away and skater buggy to stair slides these VolksWagen commercials are changing things a little bit for the better.  Check them out.

According to VW making usually tedious things fun changes people’s behaviour.

If things look fun more people are willing to try them.

Sorry for the video spam, lol, but I think these videos are rather innovative.  Perhaps some of these things should be done in the US to get people more aware of their surroundings, get more people to throw away their trash, or go up the stairs instead of the escalator.  Though I don’t know how well that would go about since people here seem to be lacking more and more in respect for public places.  Things like piano stairs might get vandalized easily.  -.-”  BUT I have faith in the citizens of my country!!  8D  Hope you enjoyed the vids!


Dance@Hero Japan

Well its a new year peeps and we’re back with a whole slew (not really) of new posts and info and things that we can’t wait to share with you!  So to start off the year of (impending doom?) 2012, I made it my resolution (one of many) to learn how to dance, and where do amateur dancers like myself turn to to learn such an art??  YOUTUBE!! Haha, yes YT is full of “how to” videos including dance and so on that fateful search I came upon THIS!

and

aaand no forgetting the ladies

Who says Asians can’t dance? Well, obviously, they can! This series of dance offs(?) are split into three rounds so far and I think it’s uploaded once a month since the newest round isn’t uploaded yet.  You can watch ALL the dance teams and all the rounds at Dance@Hero Japan YT Channel.  I can honestly say that they improve so much over the span of the three rounds.  Keep an eye out for my favourite teams: タイムマシーン and Team Black Starz 龍太郎!

P.S. And in other news I found this one highly amusing and colorful! (honestly, while I was typing this post I got seriously distracted by NicoNicoDouga dance videos; they always entertain *o* LOL)
