haha, i was telling my fren tat i could buy 4-D with the last 4 digits - tat, or i'll specify the number plate of my hypothetical future car to be this number :p 

YES. YES. YESYESYES. I DID IT.  i whacked 10 km!!!!  86 min!!!!  not the best of times, but definitely better than i expected, considering my previous maximum was 5.3 km at 50 min.  lolz!   my fren and colleague and i all finished within a minute of each other, but it was SO PACKED WITH PPL 49,997 other nutty ppl also participated as well we couldn't find each other.  the padang needs to change its name to like the 'lumpur' cuz it was jus OOZING with MUD and on a hilarious side note, i jus realised tat my country's capital city is actually called the 'city of mud' THIS IS SO TYPICAL

i definitely couldn't have done it without heaps of help and support tho :)  for one thing, if my fren nat hadn't suggested it, i wouldn't even have attempted, and subsequently realised i COULD run tat far a distance.  and all the physio colleagues who helped me pick my running shoes and gave me tips on properly wearing them, taught me stretches and corrected my posture, and helped to mobilise and crack my back and neck to relieve my aches and pains :p 

and lastly, but still equally importantly, it's really thanks to エイト ^___^  to 関ジャニ∞ for kickstarting the run with me, to yasu and 'わたし鏡’ for re-galvanising me after the 1st hour, to ryo and his 'heavenly psycho' for sustaining me and to subaru and 'ONE' for bringing me across the finishing line :)

went to sing k with my colleagues yesterdae and it was lotsa fun! the OT section is really 卧虎藏龙, everyone sings so well! :) and the greatest achievement of the day was finally getting to sing '珊瑚海' properly! for once, i have met a guy who can sing jay's part without getting pulled along by me when i'm singing lara's *v-sign*

and when i got home, i came across this on youtube. THE VID of the song i almost always sing, only cuz i always want to see his amazing charisma on stage :)


and then of course, being me, i get carried away. so i found more of his stuff, as well as his supposed final performance on a concert stage - the absolutely incredible, AWESOME, INCOMPARABLE collaboration with 梅艳芳. it's sad, really. it always feels like the best ones are the 1st to go.

the subbed version of 「流星の絆」 is STILL downloading, and doesn't look to be ready till tml, so in the meantime, i entertained myself with 「 ブラッディ・マンデイ 」, starring miura haruma, which i have great affection for ever since gokusen 3 ^___^ flailing over nino+ryo aside, i was VERY EXCITED to learn tat haruma got his own drama as well, and also, i seriously love hacker plotlines.

since the drama is supposedly based on something very similar to '24', i guess ppl who've watched '24' might not find it so novel, but since i've never watched a single episode of '24' in my life, i was very impressed with the way it was filmed and the urgency permeating it - when they said the pace of the show would be 1.5 times tat of a normal drama, they so definitely meant it. i am still reeling from its effects. and also from getting to see haruma's pretty face for the past 1 hr and 35 min :p

i like, i LIKE very much :) also, the theme song, the band singing it, and their new single are pretty awesome ♥

back in the halcyon days of my j-rock craze, enka was something for old ppl, something totally out of my realm of experience.  it wasn't tat it was bad, jus something i completely din't relate to.  even until recently, my definition of enka was something from the time of my parents.  then kanjani8 came along with their modern enka, and i was hooked.  a website i came across defined enka as 'songs of sweet resignation - resignation has to be sweet for it to be endurable', and it suddenly made a lot of sense.

cuz as one gets older, one ends up against various inexorable truths of life.  when one leaves home, leaves school, enters society, starts work, many of the illusions one has bt life and what it has to offer get gradually stripped away.  it doesn't mean u lose ur dreams, jus tat they become more shaped by the harsh realities of adulthood.  yet, in spite of all these disappointments, despite all those days when all u wanna do is curl up in a ball and never leave ur room, u still have to put on ur game face and brave the world out there.  and altho at the beginning of the day, u think it's impossible, tat u'll never make it - somehow, somehow, u always make it to the end of the day.  and so many of my fav eito's songs are all about tat, about not giving up in the face of uncertainty and adversity, about how it's alrite to break down at times, about the importance of the loved ones around u and how u support each other, about jus moving forward, about having faith tat u'll find a way, somehow.

and now for something totally sappy.  for an english speaker, they have one of the weirdest names, but they've been entertaining me in one way or another for 10 years, and this is the song marking their 10th anniversary.  they performed it live at a music special, and tho this may be shortchanging their abilities, i was SO impressed - for a boy band, they sing really really well :p  (and they have some of the slashiest songs evah, lolz)

words needn't be flowery or overly bombastic to be beautiful.  it doesn't have to be too abstract or 'deep'.  sometimes, when dealing with the complex mess tat is life, the simplest phrases make the most impact.  i used to be really into his old album years and years ago, and now, almost a decade later, his work still touches me :)

i've jus finished reading vanity fair's green issue for this year and... after some reflection, i reckon i'm still one of those remarkably apathetic and incorrigibly economics-driven sheep who are eating up the amazon.  i waste water, i waste electricity, and at work, my iso-14000-certified workplace refuses to let me print on both sides of the paper due to confidentiality issues.

but at least for now, i'll switch off my air conditioning, gargle from a cup instead of the tap, and though i still dun really understand how they work - aim to save enuff $$ to afford a hybrid car in the future.

周杰倫, <青花瓷>
作詞:方文山  作曲:周杰倫


素胚勾勒出青花筆鋒濃轉淡
瓶身描繪的牡丹一如你初妝
冉冉檀香透過窗心事我了然
宣紙上 走筆至此擱一半

釉色渲染仕女圖韻味被私藏
而你嫣然的一笑如含苞待放
你的美一縷飄散 去到我去不了的地方

天青色等煙雨 而我在等你
炊煙裊裊昇起 隔江千萬里
在瓶底書漢隸仿前朝的飄逸
就當我為遇見你伏筆

天青色等煙雨 而我在等你
月色被打撈起 暈開了結局
如傳世的青花瓷自顧自美麗
你眼帶笑意

色白花青的錦鯉躍然於碗底
臨摹宋體落款時卻惦記著你
你隱藏在窯燒裡千年的秘密
極細膩 猶如繡花針落地

簾外芭蕉惹驟雨 門環惹銅綠
而我路過那江南小鎮惹了你
在潑墨山水畫裡 你從墨色深處被隱去

天青色等煙雨 而我在等你
炊煙裊裊昇起 隔江千萬里
在瓶底書漢隸仿前朝的飄逸
就當我為遇見你伏筆

天青色等煙雨 而我在等你
月色被打撈起 暈開了結局
如傳世的青花瓷自顧自美麗
你眼帶笑意

天青色等煙雨 而我在等你
炊煙裊裊昇起 隔江千萬里
在瓶底書漢隸仿前朝的飄逸
就當我為遇見你伏筆

天青色等煙雨 而我在等你
月色被打撈起 暈開了結局
如傳世的青花瓷自顧自美麗

eta: jay has outdid himself. i can't remember being so instantly in love with every song in an album for a goddamn long time.  fuck why can't i see him in concert?????  argh!!!!
ununoriginal: (Default)
going to watch linkin park in concert next week, and so have been 'revising' their songs so as to participate better in the atmosphere of a live performance.  'minutes to midnite' is my fav album of theirs yet, they've grown up a bit and moved away from some of their self-indulgence.  now for a song tat has fast made its way up my hit list :)


turn my mike up louder i got to say something
light-weights step to the side when we come in

feel it in your chest the syllables get pumping
people on the street they panic and start running

words on loose leaf sheet complete coming
i jump in my mind and summon the rhyme, i'm dumping

healing the blind i promise to let the sun in
sick of the dark ways we march to the drum and

jump when they tell us that they wanna see jumping
fuck that i wanna see some fists pumping

risk something, take back what's yours
say something that you know they might attack you for

cause i'm sick of being treated like i have before
like it's stupid standing for what i'm standing for

like this war's really just a different brand of war
like it doesn't cater the rich and abandon poor

like they understand you in the back of the jet
when you can't put gas in your tank

these fuckers are laughing their way to the bank and cashing the check
asking you to have compassion and have some respect

for a leader so nervous in an obvious way
stuttering and mumbling for nightly news to replay

and the rest of the world watching at the end of the day
In their living room laughing like "what did he say?"

Amen
Amen
Amen
Amen
Amen

in my living room watching but i am not laughing
cause when it gets tense i know what might happen

world is cold the bold men take action
have to react or get blown into fractions

ten years old it's something to see
another kid my age drugged under a jeep

taken and bound and found later under a tree
i wonder if he had thought the next one could be me

do you see the soldiers they're out today
they brush the dust from bullet proof vests away

it's ironic at times like this you pray
but a bomb blew the mosque up yesterday

there's bombs in the buses, bikes, roads
inside your market, your shops, your clothes

my dad he's got a lot of fear i know
but enough pride inside not to let that show

my brother had a book he would hold with pride
A little red cover with a broken spine

on the back, he hand-wrote a quote inside
when the rich wage war it's the poor who die

Meanwhile, the leader just talks away
Stuttering and mumbling for nightly news to replay

And the rest of the world watching at the end of the day
both scared and angry like "what did he say?"

Amen...

With hands held high to the sky so blue,
The ocean opens up to swallow you.

我從半路看回去 這秦關漫漫好蜿嶇

夢想穿過了西域 包含了多少的禪意
愛情像是一本遊記 我會找尋她的謎語

看 月牙灣下的淚光 在絲路之上被遺忘

是誰的心阿 孤單的留下 她還好嗎 我多想愛他
那永恆的淚 凝固那一句話 也許可能蒸發

是誰的愛阿 並為誰降下 情聲呼喚 就讓我溶化
用一滴雨水蛹化成我翅膀 向著我愛的人 追吧

if one asked me last week why i'm watching プロポーズ大作戦」, i'd say it was for yamapi's effing good looks, but one episode in and i was completely hooked.  it's romance with a twist, inseparable frenship eroded by time and growing up, regrets and not living in the past.  apart from yamapi, whose iwase ken must be his best role since kusano akira in 野ブタ。をプロデュース, the rest of the cast were also fantastic actors, and their subplots really reinforced the main themes of the drama.  i cried buckets watching it, which was totally cathartic, and the theme song itself is beautiful :)


ah well, wat would life be without pretty pictures and kick-ass stories, hey?  and dun forget, the music, omg the music!!

「明日晴れるかな」
作詞&作曲:桑田佳祐

熱い涙や恋の叫びも
輝ける日はどこへ消えたの?
明日(あす)もあてなき道を彷徨うなら
これ以上もとには戻れない

耳を澄ませば心の声は
僕に何を語り掛けるだろう?
今は汚れた街の片隅にいて
あの頃の空を想うたびに

神より賜えし孤独やトラブル
泣きたい時は泣きなよ
これが運命(さだめ)でしょうか?
あきらめようか?
季節は巡る魔法のように

Oh,Baby. No,maybe.
「愛」失くして「情」も無い?
嘆くようなフリ
世の中のせいににするだけ

Oh,baby. You're maybe.
「哀」失くして「楽」は無い
幸せのFeeling
抱きしめて One more time.

或りし日の己れを愛するために
思い出は美しくあるのさ
遠い過去よりまだ見ぬ人生は
夢ひとつ叶えるためにある

奇跡のドアを開けるのは誰?
微笑みよ もう一度だけ
君は気づくでしょうか?
その鍵はもう
君の手のひらの上に

Why,baby? Oh,tell me.
「愛」失くして「憎」も無い?
見て見ないようなフリ
その身を守るため?

Oh,baby. You're maybe.
もう少しの勝負じゃない!
くじけそうな Feeling
乗り越えて One more chance.

I take to myself

Oh, baby. No,maybe.
「愛」失くして「憎」も無い?
嘆くようなフリ
残るのは後悔だけ!

Oh, baby. Smile baby.
その生命(いのち)は永遠(とわ)じゃない
誰もがひとりひとり胸の中で
そっと囁いているよ

「明日(あした)晴れるかな・・・」

My friends from high school
Married their high school boyfriends
Moved into houses
In the same ZIP codes where their parents live

But I
I could never follow
No I
I could never follow

I hit the highway
In a pink RV with stars on the ceiling
Lived like a gypsy
Six strong hands on the steering wheel

I’ve been a long time gone now
Maybe someday, someday I’m gonna settle down
But I’ve always found my way somehow

By takin’ the long way
Takin’ the long way around
Takin’ the long way
Takin’ the long way around

I met the queen of whatever
Drank with the Irish and smoked with the hippies
Moved with the shakers
Wouldn’t kiss all the asses that they told me to

No I
I could never follow
No I
I could never follow

It’s been two long years now
Since the top of the world came crashing down
And I’m getting’ it back on the road now

But I’m takin’ the long way
Takin’ the long way around
I’m takin’ the long way
Takin’ the long way around
The long
The long way around

Well I fought with a stranger and I met myself
I opened my mouth and I heard myself
It can get pretty lonely when you show yourself
Guess I could have made it easier on myself

But I
I could never follow
No I
I could never follow

Well I never seem to do it like anybody else
Maybe someday, someday I’m gonna settle down
If you ever want to find me I can still be found

Takin’ the long way
Takin’ the long way around
Takin’ the long way
Takin’ the long way around…..

当你在穿山越岭的另一边
我在孤独的路上没有尽头
一辈子有多少的来不及
发现已经失去
最重要的东西
恍然大悟早已远去
为何总是在犯错之后
才肯相信错的是自己
他们说这就是人生
试著体会试著忍住眼泪
还是躲不开应该有的情绪
我不会奢求世界停止转动
我知道逃避一点都没有用
只是这段时间里尤其在夜里
还是会想起难忘的事情
我想我的思念是一种病
久久不能痊愈
当你在穿山越岭的另一边
我在孤独的路上没有尽头
时常感觉你在耳后的呼吸
却未曾感觉你在心口的鼻息
汲汲营营
忘记身边的人需要爱和关心
藉口总是拉远了距离
不知不觉无声无息
我们总是在抱怨事与愿违
却不愿意回头看看自己
想想自己到底做了甚黱蠢事情
也许是上帝给我一个试炼
只是这伤口需要花点时间
只是会想念过去的一切
那些人事物会离我远去
而我们终究也会远离
变成回忆
oh 思念是一种病
oh 思念是一种病一种病
多久没有说我爱你
多久没有拥抱你所爱的人
当这个世界不在那黱美好
只有爱可以让他更好
我相信一切都来得及
别管那些纷纷扰扰
别让不开心的事停下了脚步
就怕你不说就怕你不做
别让遗憾继续一切都来得及

関ジャニ8の「浪花いろは節」を聞きます。深い意味の歌ですね。渋谷すばるの声もステキ!

さあ、沪江博客-花の言葉から。。。


浪花いろは節

不过歌词有点难度!!!

いろは解释“伊吕波歌”
千年之前,有一位佛门弟子,怀着对泱泱中华文明的向往,怀着探求真谛真解的虔诚之心,渡海而来。他的法号:空海。 
正是这位日本真言宗祖师,后世尊为弘法大师的空海,唐·德宗年间寓居于长安大相国寺,创作出了后世奉为日语元祖的伊吕波歌(いろは歌)。这首歌用到了几乎五十音的每一个字,所以就像英文的字母歌一样。而歌词本身,是一首发人深醒的佛谒。 
「伊吕波歌(いろはうた)」 
色は匂えど散りぬるを  花开溢香,然而不日也会凋谢; 
我が世谁ぞ常ならむ   我世之人生又岂有终此不变? 
有为の奥山今日越えて 如今将超越此生,渡无常之深山, 
浅き梦见し酔ひもせず  速从浅梦中醒来,莫沉迷。 

看出来了么,是Rap部分哦~这就是为什么这首歌很有深度的原因 
至于“节”,虽然也有祭典的含义,但是这里指的是对日本传统民歌中小调的称呼,所以有的字幕组翻译成“浪花依吕波小调”才是比较正确的 

另外歌曲中一直在用的口白“ハア エンヤコラセノ ドッコイセ”也是河内音头的特色,每首曲子里都会有,很像吆喝声,其实是拟声语,比喻白浪滔天、险阻重重的大海。
