Since I'm on a jpop roll, here's the slow stuff worth listening to. Maybe I should have just made a TVXQ mix...but hey, they're a great band and I love their music! I thought I should put this list up since my anime mix won't be getting much play unless you're into manga/anime like me. By the way, if you're listening, rate the mix at the bottom of each post, I want to know what I should be putting out for you. Of course, comments are always welcome. Enjoy!

Anime? Yes! As I mentioned to my sister, I am an Otaku. I'm a fan of anime, manga, but mostly I'm a wota otaku! but that's another story. This mix is a collection of theme songs from anime me and my girl watch(or read in manga form). The most recognized song of the list I'm sure is the theme song to Totoro. Here are some of the anime the other songs come from: Ouran High School Host Club, Fruits Basket, Naruto, Kingdom Hearts, Totoro. Right now I'm waiting for the latest issues of Vampire Knight and Skip Beat! to come out in English. Why read manga? A lot of the Asian dramas/movies that are popular are based on manga like Antique Bakery, Absolute Boyfriend, Hana Kimi, Boys Before Flowers, and Deathnote. Enjoy!

Mix 006 - KPop

Super Junior - Sorry Sorry
TVXQ - Are You Good Girl?
Ajoo - 재벌 2세
T-Max -  Blooming
Girls' Generation - Gee
Wheesung - Insomnia
Rain - 더 끌려(Feat. 태완 a.k.a C-Luv)

Had to put up Super Junior's Sorry Sorry right away because it's so catchy! It's the first song on my workout playlist. Their latest album is pretty good, I'm not a fan of them but they have plenty of good tracks. Craig David asked Wheesung to do a Korean version of his song, Insomnia. I love both versions. Do you like the last song? The artist is also an actor, he's the lead in Baby and Me and Doremifasolatido (for you people that were at my house for K movie night!) Enjoy!

Da Mouth - 结果咧
Nana Tanimura - Crazy for You

I'm just beginning to enjoy jpop...mostly due to TVXQ, my fav kpop group, doing jpop lately.. And I find more Japanese hip hop and dance than what I can find in cpop. Did anyone notice that Da Mouth is on this list? Yeah! This is their jpop version of their cpop song of the same name. Sounds like Aisa and DJ Y are the main vocals but still a great song. Just to throw it in, I included the japanese version of their 永远在身边 from Da Mouth's latest album. Can you tell I'm a Da Mouth fan too?

Unknown - (Sorry!)
Judy Chou - So What
Ji Jia Song - 一人樂隊
Jolin Tsai - Agent J
JJ Lin - 街道
Nese - Superman
Danson Tang - 情报
Hey Girl! - OOXX

I've been busy lining up a bunch of mixes for listening and it's always difficult for me to come up with a great list of cpop. Why? Because there just aren't that many artists out there doing hip hop genre. Most of what I find is pop which isn't much my style. Anyone out there wanna give me some names I should look at, drop me a comment. I didn't put up most of the cpop list I made for my friends recently since they're the only ones listening to this anyway!!!

Aaaaah! All is good right now, my IT (thank YOU!!!) figured out what I needed to do to turn this into a podcast so now you don't have to download my file to listen, just plug into your iTunes, sync and you're good to go! Here's a slow mix to change it up, still not all the songs I wanted to include but that's next on my list to figure out.

Mix 002 - KPop Hip Hop

In this episode:

Seo In Young - Elly
TVXQ - Ride On
Big Bang - La La La
Han Heung Gun - Toucholic
Jumper - Yes!

This playlist has some songs that were omitted from what I originally wanted to make. For some reason my joiners don't like certain songs. Thought I should mix it up a little for anyone that doesn't have these songs already on their ipod.
Happy listening! While I'm still trying to figure out how to make this into a podcast you can click the link below to access this playlist which is an .mp3 that you can load onto your ipod.

Movie Review: Antique Bakery

It's finally out! I watched it last night and it was a great movie. The cast is good (looking!) in their roles, the cinematography was excellent and the use of special effects were appropriately done. It was pretty true to the Japanese manga it is based on and covered a lot of it condsidering it is a movie. I definitely will be watching it again, so much eye candy! What more can I ask for in a movie... good looking desserts and good looking men. Be warned there is a slight gay theme to this movie but no real nudity or sex. English subs contain some profanity. This should be the next movie for our Kdrama night!

Mix 001 - KPop Electronica

Artists in this Mix:

Oriental Funk Stew

Hey there,I'm trying to figure out how to attach my url link to this post so I can let others subscribe to the feed. I'm not having much luck with it. I uploaded the file at mediafire and added the enclosure link but it's still not working. I also tried to see if it was easier but it has a problem with my mp3 and can't get it published.... hmmm, what am I doing wrong? I need to call on my trustworthy IT guy when he gets back (you know who that is!). He might be able to guide me the first couple times before I can get this rolling with music. anyway, in the meanwhile you can try the link to access the playlist. It's only about 20 minutes because I found a trial copy of a joiner but only allows up to 5 files to be joined at a time but it's selective on its tracks. Anybody out there that knows a solution to my problems with publishing, please comment!

The first time

Hey there, it's the first time for me and who knows for how long and for how often. I'm here just to share music and talk about movies or drama I'm watching. I want to hear all your comments on anything I'm posting as well as suggestions for future postings. This is a learning process for me so feedback is important.
