My OCD

08/12/2014 Leave a comment

OCD, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Do I have it? Maybe, I haven’t been diagnosed with it but I am a pedant person. And I feel that I probably have OCD. I don’t suffer a lot from it but I do wish I didn’t have it. In this video I can recognize myself a lot. It’s a music video, about a man being tested on OCD. I like the song!

Axent Wear – Amazing headphone concept

08/11/2014 Leave a comment

Well it seems to be more than a concept. Still, it’s very early in development.

gallery_2-10509688aa3af367cc8176ea1505c1f4As you might already know, I do love cat ears. Nekomimi, in Japanese. I’m not talking about actual cat ears, but the type you put on your head. And seeing a girl wearing cat ears… well, makes me purr.

I made a post a while back about a pair of headphones in the shape of nekomimi. Unfortunately they were only digital, you can get them in the software Second Life. But now I’ve come across something much more interesting. Headphones in the shape of cat ears, and with speakers on top. So that you can share the music, or if you just feel like playing music aloud.

Like I said, they don’t provide much info but they are trying to make this a reality. And damn do I want this. The price they’re aiming at is 115 USD, whic is pretty much my limit. In terms of quality headphones it’s not that high of a price, it’s just expensive to me. But I would probably buy them regardless, it’s a dream come true. They are so beautiful.

What I’d like to see is that they are wireless and have built-in controls. And having memory on there for actual music to carry around would be amazing and make the product so much unique.

Go to the official website for Axent here: http://www.axentwear.com/

And they actually seem to be more active on Facebook, click the link to see a Q&A post.

(Thanks to Denisa Iuliana Costras for letting me know about this)

New Kyary Pamyu Pamyu song!

02/19/2014 Leave a comment

And music video! It seems sad… Almost made me cry… Because it feels as if she’s going to stop making music. But she is not. It’s about becoming an adult and graduating and saying good bye to school and all the teachers.

The music video is also like a trip through her past music videos. I like it. This is a good song to end a concert with or… play and cry to when she one day stops making music. T.T

The song is called something like “The beginning of the dream”, with some Japanese play on words at the end I’m guessing.

Hatsune Miku shop at Haneda airport

01/25/2014 Leave a comment

There’s a new (or two) shop(s) that have opened up at the Haneda airport in Japan. They are Hatsune Miku shops. Hatsune Miku being the popular vacaloid, the digital artist from Japan. It’s called Hatsune Miku Wing Shop, because “hane” means “wing(s)” in Japanese. SO wanna go there! It ought to be very expensive though. I don’t think there is a Miku themed store in Akihabra…

Check out this video below by Alex from SubTokyo giving us a tour of the shop.

I’ll probably be landing at Haneda airport instead of Narita next time!

Sorry~ I’m really sad that I can’t keep this up. What’s wrong with me?! A lot of things are…

Came across some awesome bit-pop music by a Swedish artist called FantomenK. Fantomen means “the phantom”. Have a listen to one of the songs here.

Happy new year!

IGN has done a short video interview with a girl that likes to made videos with cosplay and music made on the violin inspired by video games (among other things). She has done some amazing work. Check out Lindsey Stirling’s Youtube channel here and the interview below.

Also check out this funny and cute video from her second channel where she walks around town disguised as her own number one fan.

Tsukasa and Konata singing karaoke

I don’t know where this is from, but if you like Lucky Star and love Konata like I do, then you’ll enjoy this. It’s Tsukasa (not Kagami like the uploader wrote in the title) and Konata singing Valentine Kiss. Konata is hilarious in the background. XD

I love you Konata Izumi
