Big Bang wants to hear your voice

big bang koe wo kiksasete

Big Bang is back with their third single, “Koe wo kisasete” (Let me hear your voice). The song will be the theme song to new drama “Ohitorisama” that stars Alisa Mizuki and Teppei Koike.

There will be three different versions, of course with different goodies.

This song is very J-Pop; very Christmas-like theme, literally. I do like this song though. TaeYang just has one of those voices that is so ‘easy listening’. Daesung and SeungRi also sound good, but TaeYang sounds the best in this song. GD and TOP sound like themselves. Really can’t say anything because they’re rapping is the i-sound-the-same-not-so-changing rap melody. And according to CDJ, Teddy is one of the composers of this song. Teddy is an awesome producer, no wonder I like this song.

I just wish they would come up with better covers to their albums and singles. Really, are we on a creativity block?

I’m excited are you?

Just a note… this hasn’t even been released and the Limited Edition with goods is sold out at CDJ. I’m sad I really wanted that one.

Yuu Shirota & D-Boys on their 1st nation-wide tour

The ‘ikemen’ of D-Boys will make their first nation-wide tour this coming winter, December 28. Shirota Yuu and D-Boys had an event together for the CD release of “Natsu doko 2009”. Junji Igarashi and 19 other members are alumni’s of this group including Shirota Yuu, where they all interacted with fans in various places.

During a summer event in Akihabara, about 10,000 fans came to the recording of “Natsu doko 2009”. They held a “Thank you show” called “Winter doko 2009”. It was an overwhelming power of midwinter ‘ikemen’.

With members of D-Boys in various dramas and having original radio shows, the tour is expected to draw out many fans.

Finally an update. I know we’ve been slow, but some of us have gotten wind of the nasty virus going around.

Some good news though or not, people will get to see Igarashi and Shirota get their groove on as they will dance on stage during the tour.

Get free flights for life!

Just be pregnant, and deliver on airplane 2,000 feet in the air. Oh and make sure your on an airline that will give a rats arse about you too.

KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) – A baby boy who made a surprise arrival on board an AirAsia flight this week will be given free flights for life with the budget carrier, as will his mother, the airline said Friday.
AirAsia said 31-year-old passenger Liew Siaw Hsia went into labour on Wednesday’s flight from the northern island of Penang to Kuching on Borneo island.

The aircraft made an emergency diversion to the Malaysian capital but the baby arrived just before landing, delivered by a doctor who was on board and who was assisted by the airline’s flight attendants.
“The baby was safely delivered when flight AK 6506 was approaching Kuala Lumpur for landing at 2,000 feet,” the airline said in a statement, adding that mother and baby were taken to a nearby hospital following touchdown.

“To celebrate this momentous occasion, we decided to present both mother and child with free flights for life,” said AirAsia’s director of operations Moses Devanayagam after visiting them in hospital.

That’s pretty cool if you ask me. Lucky they had a doctor on board too. Can you imagine someone delivering your baby and has only see what’s on TV (if their lucky).

Congratulations to mommy and child.
