Today I came back from work and took a look what is happening on MAL. The biggest group on MAL has made an anime song contest. Rules are very simple. There is eight songs and you have to choose four from them that you like the most. Frankly speaking from today’s voting I’ve known only one song. That’s great! I can discover more nice music ^^ There is a link. I chose songs with numbers 2, 3, 5 & 6. What would be your choice?

Comeback?

My blog is dying. No post for almost two months. I have to do something with that >_<

A lot of thingh happened during that time. I passed high school exams, got to university, started to work and did a lot of other things ^-^. Tomorrow I’m going to work again. I want to earn money for a laptop. It’ll be helpful during studies. I’m very tired… I’m spending free time on reading and finding new music. I don’t know when I’ll be back. Time will tell. So, bye-bye.

My new music discoveries

Yesterday I watched TV. Well, that’s a bit unusual because instead watching TV I prefer computer or just going out somewhere. Anyway, there was a rock list. I like that kinda music so I listened that all. There was two songs I especially paid attention. Those were Felling Good by Muse and Najważniejszy Dzień (English: The Most Important Day) by Muchy (Flies). Below I posted those music videos. I’m going to find out more of their music. Because it’s an awesome music, isn’t it?

I’m starting to hate chemistry >_< For now I’m wondering why I chose that subject as one for my main exams. I have four days to remember all that stuff from three years >_< I hope I won’t die from exhaustion.

Little Wing

•May 11, 2008 • Leave a Comment

Little Wing by Jimi Hendrix is one of my favourite songs. Amazing guitar play and simple but beautiful lyrics. This song was first released on the 1967 at album Axis: Bold as Love and of course there is a lot of artist who made their interpretation of that song. I downloaded and listened some of them.

  1. Little Wing by Andy Timmons
  2. Little Wing by Cássia Eller
  3. Little Wing by Derek And The Dominos
  4. Little Wing by Frank Zappa
  5. Little Wing by G3
  6. Little Wing by Metallica
  7. Little Wing by Pearl Jam
  8. Little Wing by Skid Row
  9. Little Wing by Stevie Ray Vaughan
  10. Little Wing by Sting
  11. Little Wing by The Corrs
  12. Little Wing by The Indigo
  13. Little Wing by 松本孝弘 (Takahiro “Tak” Matsumoto)

Well. In my opinion the best ones are performances of Andy Timmons, Frank Zappa, Metallica, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Tak Matsumoto. But for me the best one is Little Wing by The Indigo. Amazing interpretation done in their own style. The Indigo is a Japanese band so there is a bit hard to understand vocal, but their vocalist has really beautiful voice. I must say that because of The Indigo I started to listen Jimi Hendrix ^^

Perfect Blue

•May 8, 2008 • 1 Comment

I’m after three of five exams. Next one will be on next Friday so I have some free time. I didn’t watch any anime by two days so I decided to watch a film I downloaded a few days ago. It’s called Perfect Blue. Well, I haven’t watched too much anime films, but I must say that almost every a-film I’ve seen is a masterpiece. Arashi no Yoru ni, Tokyo Godfathers, Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo. All those films was great and Perfect Blue is the same. I don’t know if that what I’m writing now is true but I think that Perfect Blue was a first anime thriller I’ve watched. It’s about Mima Kirigoe, a young pop idol who quits her band to became an actress. Not everyone is happy about that. Mima starts to get letters with threats. Soon people around her are being murdered and Mima is starting to lose her mind. You can’t really say what is a reality and what is just a Mima’s imagination. Film keeps in suspense to the very end. And after the end you are still asking yourself “What have really happened?”. For me it’s the best anime thiller I’ve ever seen and I really recommend that film to everyone who like to watch something different than usual from time to time.
