As always, I’m ridiciously late to the party (or maybe you could say I’m just barely on time). MorningBerryz has a new contest going on at her blog. Which closes… in just under 6 hours. XD Basically, she’s asking what 5 J-pop songs you would recommend “to turn a friend onto some of your favorite music♪♪”. In my choosing of songs, I have mainly picked older songs which have stuck  [ Read More ]

In the few months that I’ve been listening to Angela, I have slowly started to build my Angela Aki collection. I have her latest album, ANSWER, and the one previous to that, TODAY. I also have her single “Kokoro no Senshi” because one of the b-sides is her version of “Eyes on Me”  [ Read More ]

Well, pengie of unchained did her fifth podcast tonight… And it made me want to do my second one… So here it is! XD I had a few technical difficulties, but meh. It’s done. It’s long, clocking in at around 1:07 ish. I rambled too much, and there isn’t THAT much J-pop talk in here… Some J-pop talk, some wotachat talk… Some responses to topics covered in pengie’s podcast. Ugh…  [ Read More ]

Well, I’m a little bit delayed, but here is my response to misa’s J-music survey. I’ve got a few songs embedded in here, just in case anyone wants to give a listen to some of the artists I talk about. It’s a little bit funny (this feeling inside… err… ahem… sorry wrong language of songs XD) talking about non-H!P, but still Japanese music on here. I don’t think I’ve done  [ Read More ]

I don’t usually cover news pieces in my blog, but I thought that this piece of news deserved a mention. Today, Some Boys! Blog reported that Goto Maki’s official blog has re-opened and that she is currently in Los Angeles California. Now, I personally cannot read Japanese, but I went searching and found someone had already translated Maki’s blog entry to help out Maki fans. This information is courtesy of  [ Read More ]
