Patterns of sound make music

Although I listen to a variety of music, ranging from The Used to NEWS to Timbaland to Mae. Lately, I prefer listening to softer or poppy music..which is quite the transition from my High School days when all I would listen to was punk/rock etc. What music can’t I stand?… hardcore SCREAMO, most techno and the really thuggish gangSTER rap crap.. -___- ok, perhaps I’m more picky than I thought?

I composed a list of the current music I’ve been listening to. Yay, so if you’re curious at all check out the link below:

And Lastly, because I’m too lazy to list more, I’ll end with this:

Jdorama: Last Friends

I’ve noticed that most my recent blogs have been very “Japan” oriented! Whether it’s about my trip there, music,or now drama.. haha o well, here goess!

I didn’t end up watching any jdoramas that came out in Winter 2008 beyond 1-3 episodes because nothing really kept my attention. This Spring season though, seems full of a bunch of worth-watching jdoramas! I plan to check out Zettai Kareshi, Gokusen 3, Hokaben, ROOKIES, and Last Friends.

I’ve watched episode 1 of Last Friends and I loved it (you can find SOFT SUBS by clicking >HERE<) They’re all amazing actors/actresses and the story seems really well done so far. Everything about this drama has me hooked, just like my love for Tantei Gakuen Q. The opening song “Prisoner of Love” by Utada Hikaru fits PERFECTLY. Even the video for the opening caught my attention, which is rare since I always skip over them (the only exceptions now are this and the opening for Tantei Gakuen Q: check out my past blog for details and the video by clicking >here<).

Spring Break in Japan Theme Song

How could I forget that Em and I had a theme song for our Japan trip! During our first few days in Japan, while we were watching TV and getting ready for the mornings, this singer was on numerous channels and singing. I had no idea what his name was or what the song name was, but it was an easy song to remember and he had a good voice! Throughout the rest of our trip I would hear this song in various stores and restaurants; every time pointing it out to Em =D

Well, thankfully Em found his name! Otherwise I would have been googling “shaved head young Japanese singer hit song” or something along those lines lol ><

Here it is: Shimizu Shota singing “Home”
