[Fanvid] Turn Back the Clock (Uchi Tribute)

Hi Hi!

I felt inspired again to make another fanvideo (yeah, finally!). When I heard this old late 80's song by Johnny Hates Jazz, Turn Back the Clock, I immediately thought of Uchi and just had to do this one for him. I think it's a perfect match, with all the fallout of "the incident".

It's my 2nd tribute to Uchi-kun! Comments aren't necessary but will inspire me to do more (hint hint, wink wink)

Daisuke Takahashi Fandom

Long time no post! I'm sorry I haven't posted in eons (seriously), but life is an ever eternal struggle for sanity ^_^. The good news is that after I got laid off in March 2008 (right before my birthday too!), I managed to find another job starting in January 2009 so life is good. Thanks so much to everyone who has sent thank-you notes for what little I've put up on my LJ and for padding my Youtube video comments as well. Makes me happy that people are enjoying them.

Taking a little detour from my Kanjani8 fandom to pimp another awesome guy who just happens to attend Kansai University in Osaka, so that can't be too far off from the boys, ne? If you haven't heard of Daisuke Takahashi, he just happens to be the first Japanese male figure skater to win an Olympic Medal (Bronze) in 2010, Vancouver and in the World's Championship (Gold) earlier in March. (His short program in Vancouver was sizzling! )

What is so amazing was that he overcame a potentially career ending torn ACL injury on his landing leg towards the end of 2008 and managed to fight his way back to the top. His skating programs are full of passion, charisma, and charm and he is also very strong on his jumps and footwork. I mean, how can you not like a guy who loves to shop? Daisuke Takahashi is too cute for his own good.

                                Seriously, it should be a crime for a man to have such long eyelashes like this!


I made some animated gifs of some of his memorable skating moves as well as some cute moments. I'm off to work on a fanvideo just for him! Enjoy!

1. Skating to Hip Hop (2007-08 season)


2. Short Program "Eye" (2009-2010 season) Many many thanks to moon_kaka for the vid! ^_^


3. Waiting for his scores


4. Being his goofy fun-loving self

Music time: Soundclick Widget

Hi again,

If you've ever visited me on Soundclick, you may also know me as "Zefiris". I've been experimenting lately with embedding video/audio links so here's the widget to the songs I've sung and uploaded on my Soundclick account. They are mostly from anime with a few j-pop songs. Douzo!

Hello out there! Yeah, it's been like forever, but in between getting laid off and finding a new job, I haven't had time to update my Soundclick page in almost 1.5 years (gasp!). Gomen,ne? Anywho, I had to remove my karaoke songs that I sang from Soundclick as it is not allowed, apparently. Oh well. Thanks to everyone who stopped by and listened to me! If I have time, maybe I'll post it here in my LJ instead. I'm just keeping the widget here as a reminder.

Ohkura Loves His Food

Just had to share this clip of the recent Janiben episode where the boys are eating some sort of roasted meat and poor poor Ohkura, how he wants to eat! (LOL!) If anyone can translate this clip, would be most grateful to know what they are saying. Thankies!

(Just click on the pic and enjoy Ohkura's frustration)

Still in One Piece

If anyone reads this journal, I am happy to report that I am still in one piece. We had a pretty sizeable earthquake (~5-5.6 magnitude) in California last night. It felt like a big jolt and the the ground rolled back and forth for about 10 seconds. Nothing fell and all my family is ok, thank goodness.

First the fires in Southern California and then an earthquake. Hmmm, I hope the name of my journal doesn't have anything to do with that...
