You better get yours, 'cuz I got mine!

Takes place on Feb. 5, 2009. I shall be there early!


Dragonette♥ came to Boston ([technically Allston])




This was one of the best concerts I’ve ever seen. I liked them a lot before going to see them live but I did not have expectations for them to be so wonderful live. They’re all so energetic. The lead singer is also one of those women that is so much more beautiful in person. Pictures online and elsewhere do not do her justice, I swear! The lights were well done and they were very professional. Before they started playing everyone was so awkward and barely moving but as soon as Dragonette strumed the first girl and the first lyric was sung, everyone was jump off the floor. I had a great time minus an awkward boob touch, these raunchy gay guys that continued to dance all skankily and off beat to everything, and this awkward like 50-something year old that had earplugs in but kept shaking his head from side to side off beat as well. Note to all that went: Please learn where the beat of the songs are…




Ad Status






I managed to also get a little clip of some of the show. Very short but very memorable for me because ‘Liar’ is most definitely my favorite song!

Another fly and jive music video by the lovely Ting Tings.

I love the song. I love the video.

My Soul Exploration.

Since earlier this month, I have stopped myself from listening to any Asian music since I had grown far to comfortable to it. I began ignoring the majority of things that are going on in the English-speaking world. Although many people think that ignoring something is a bad thing, I am finding a lot of good from it. It’s forcing me to explore in other areas and also re-evaluate myself. I have found a great deal of great things. In music specifically, I’ve found two very interesting female singers: Florence + The Machine and Bat for Lashes. Both of which I have grown very fond of. Their music is quiet intriguing and definitely beautiful, deep and soulful. Two things that make this exploration forth it.

Florence + The Machine: Drumming Song ♥

Bat For Lashes: Daniel ♥


明日への賛歌 (Ashita e no Sanka)

I found out recently about the artist alan. She is a quite an interesting artist. The song “Ashita e no Sanka” is in Japanese, however she’s not Japanese! In fact, she’s a Tibetan! Which is a rare find at all. She also sings in Mandarin Chinese. She’s the first Chinese singer to make it as high as #3 on the Japanese Oricon charts! One thing I love about the song is how she makes her voice imitate the sounds of a traditional Chinese instrument. It’s a beautiful song. Worth listening.

{Return to Boston: Anime Convention 2009 #1 (Anime Boston ’09)


So Anime Boston came up with a very sudden suprise although in a sense I was expecting it. However it was at such an inconvenient time. I had just come back from Boston earlier in the week and I had almost no money. So I asked to borrow 100 bucks from my sister which was an awful idea. She gave me so much crap and kind of ruined the con for me a bit. However the entrance fee was 50 bucks so that’s half of my money. I had to pay back 30 bucks for the bus ticket brough to me by my love, Raphael♥.  I ended up not even getting 100 bucks, only 70. The convention for the most part was a lot of fun. I’m starting to see myself growing up because the conventions don’t have the same effect they used to have. Or prehaps it was because I didn’t have money to splurge like usual. Next time I’ll have money. We also plan to get a hotel room booked for the upcoming ConnectiCon ’09. Sunday of the convention was prehaps and always the saddest day of the convention but it was my favorite this time. We got to play ParaParaParadise, which I missed a lot. No Pop’n though which was a little sad. I had a great weekend. We also got to see the Japanese group called Kalafina live. They put on a great performance. I’ve heard their music before but didn’t know who they were. Beautiful women with beautiful voices. From here on out as well, things will be different. Starting over.
