It’s amazing what you can find browsing people’s forum signatures. I was doing just that a while ago on LYN and found a banner of this Jpop group Hinoi Team. Wondering what their performances were like, I downloaded this torrent called the “Hinoi Team Compilation”, which seems to be videos of their more popular songs.
Yummy. While their vocals aren’t much (think Japanese PCD, but worse), it’s sure fun to watch ’em dance their Para Para tracks. Yup, good enough for me. 😛 Who cares if their Night on Fire song is a ripoff. 😛
One video tho that caught my eye was their revocalisation of Glay x Exile’s Scream, with Yamada Yu. I think that was really well done, such that 5 sexy grrls are much better than 4. 🙂 And Yu is suprrrr hot. Anyways, that led me to the original version of the song, which isn’t bad either. Good for you, Glay. Looks like you won’t be forgotten just yet. 🙂
Manager, or specialist?
Manager: initial grade jump = 1. Higher glass ceiling.
Specialist: initial grade jump = 2. Lower glass ceiling.
Hmmm…. that probably boils back down to my brain. Engineer, or politician?
Our excursions around Klang Valley with the Italians, Valeria and Marco, interns at the Italian embassy, have been very pleasant. First it was desserts/supper at KTZ Jalan Imbi with Merv and nAf, then the start of the Raja Muda Intl Regatta at Port Klang. We definitely have so much more to cover though, especially the makan parts.
In between excursions the gang saw Casino Royale, which I think was pretty good. Straying from the traditional series depicting Bond as a perfect being, this one gives a look at the hero’s humane side, and how behind the coolness he’s still vulnerable to a lot of things that don’t kill.
Next movie: the prestige!
Oh, and I finally met piffles. 😛
