So, my wife informed me via IM that GR #34 arrived in the mail today. Sweet! I also received my region-free DVD player in this morning's UPS shipment at my office! It's been a good day so far!
I think the first non-region 1 DVD I will watch is the Korean movie DVD "Chingoo" ("Friend"). My brother gave me a copy of that movie in what I think is a limited ed. version because it came in a nice metal case with lots of extras inside.
Current Music: Jimmy Cliff "Sitting In Limbo" from the album "The Harder They Come (Disc 1)"

I have gotten into some really great Japanese music over the years but just a few weeks ago I discovered this band, Eggplant. Thier music is really rock oriented, and I find thier song "ReMeet" particularly pretty.
Its nice that they have 3 free songs on Cnet downloads, here: http://music.download.com/eggplant_j/3600-8648_32-100311353.html?tag=list
I also have come to love the band Lucifer from the anime series Kaikan Phrase. Some may mock this anime for its dated rock n roll story, but I find the characters so charming and charismatic. My favorite song by Lucifer, (they played the main rockband in the story) is "Datenshi Blue". If anyone hasn't heard them, they should really try them out.
On the downside I may be deleting this account today or tomorrow. Which really bothers me because I love this GR-community. Take care.

|alucards_song||03:44 pm - My Japanese horror fascination|
I have found that a number of Japanese directors have a distinct sense of what truly scares us. Not only was Ringu one of the most frightening films I've seen. I think it was a very cerebral film as well. I think true horror has to trigger the the more subconscious parts of our brain.
I know I'm ranting, but it just fascinates me. I found another cool Japanese movie called "The Eye". I dont even want to explain the movie. Its best to see the trailer yourselves. http://www.mongkolfilm.com/theeye/index_th.html
Hmmm if anyones interested in Japanese horror type films, my sister showed me this one directed by James Wan...his directorial debut is looking really good.
I suggest plenty of Pocky and fruitmilk when watching a film like this.
Current Mood: energetic
