Brother

When we were young
We were the ones
The kings and queens
Oh yeah, we ruled the world
We smoked cigarettes
Man no regrets
Wish I could relive
Every single word

We've taken different paths
And travelled different roads
I know we'll always end up on the same one when we're old
And when you're in the trenches
And you're under fire I will cover you

[Chorus]
If I was dying on my knees
You would be the one to rescue me
And if you were drowned at sea
I'd give you my lungs so you could breathe

I've got you brother-er-er-er
I've got you brother-er-er-er
I've got you brother-er-er-er
I've got you brother-er-er-er

[Verse 2]
Oh brother, we'll go deeper than the ink
Beneath the skin of our tattoos
Though we don't share the same blood
You're my brother and I love you
That's the truth

We're living different lives
Heaven only knows
If we'll make it back
With all our fingers and our toes
5 years, 20 years, come back
It will always be the same

[Chorus]
If I was dying on my knees
You would be the one to rescue me
And if you were drowned at sea
I would give you my lungs so you could breathe

I've got you brother-er-er-er
I've got you brother-er-er-er


[Post Chorus]
And if we hit on troubled water
I'll be the one to keep you warm and safe
And we'll be carrying each other
Until we say goodbye on our dying day

Because I've got you brother-er-er-er
I've got you brother-er-er-er
I've got you brother-er-er-er
I've got you brother-er-er-er

If I was dying on my knees
You would be the one to rescue me
And if you were drowned at sea
I would give you my lungs so you could breathe

[Outro]
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
I've got you brother-er-er-er
I've got you brother-er-er-er

I love Ben Shapiro!

I have zero interest in watching this show. Read the first book and was turned off. (Not to mention confused.) But this music is gorgeous. And the graphics are hilarious!  I didn't know he still played. I've just seen that video of him as a young boy.

Ben Shapiro: Political commentator, public speaker, writer and violin player. Not to mention a mind like a steel trap and a Faster!Talker than Lorelai and Rory put together. Those pesky Jews! Why do they always have all the talent?

Since I've been needing a break since forever, my stance this summer is NOT to sub any current weekly drama, but only some SP or two (I was planning to sub some movie also but I saw that English subs will be available in its upcoming dvd/bluray release so nvm). However, seeing that there are many interesting dramas this summer, I cannot say I am fully committed to my promise. So my stance right now is... "it-depends-so-just-wait-and-see-but-if-possible-take-a-break-and-no-drama-subbing-this-summer-please".

One SP so far in my list...

Gokumontou. An NHK two hour SP shown November of last year, that slipped past the jdrama radar. It's a Kindaichi Kosuke masterpiece mystery, and quite challenging to translate. I've been working on this for some time now but seldom got the time to focus on it. Now that KodoGuru6 is done, I'll finally get to finish it. Special thanks to VampireXxX who helped me scour the internet for a good raw. While waiting, you can read about the plot/adaptations, HERE and HERE. Please look forward to it~.

That is all for now~.

Ep. 12 Finale: "Deep Fried Corn and Beef Rice of Gotanda, Shinagawa Ward, Tokyo"


Episode Synopsis. Inogashira Goro (Matsushige Yutake) arrived at Gotanda Station, to meet with his last client for the day, Watanabe Masayoshi (Hasegawa Tomoharu), the president of a certain packing company. However, as soon as Watanabe saw him, he pulled Goro behind some crates to hide him from his mother. Goro was confused and bewildered... After the meeting, Goro stopped for a moment to watch the flow of Meguro River. He suddenly felt hungry and looked for a shop. He saw a signboard that said, "Fureai Eat and Drink Shop Area". It was located inside a building full of snack bars and pubs. Being a non-drinker, Goro at first, hesitated but when he saw the sign, "Shokudou Todaka", he decided to give it a shot. Inside, the master of the shop (Tsuyoshi Muro) asked him to choose a drink which comes with a side nibble. Disappointed, Goro felt uneasy since it seemed it was mainly a pub. But he looked at the menu, and realized that there were Beef Rice and miso soup available, too. Besides, many of the side items like Octopus and Cucumber with Salted Kelp, Deep-Fried Corn, Rockfish-Eggplant Roll, Deep-Fried Sesame Tofu-Tomato Dashi, and Uni On The Nitamago etc. sound curiously tantalizing and promising...

How beautiful is this little girl?

Like many people, I happened to see a clip of her on America's Got Talent. I wanted to find a more "natural" performance, so I hit the YouTubes. She's got that gorgeous, powerful, belting voice that I've always wanted. 

As always when I see talented kids, I hope that they get good training, have a strong family support system, and that they are not corrupted by the entertainment industry.

When I come across people like this (kids or adults, but especially the kids) I actually don't end up following them much. It breaks my heart to see them go from awkward beginnings to so over-polished, and then either self-destruct, or are destroyed by the industry itself. They start off looking like the kids they are, and then next thing you know they are half naked and/or airbrushed on the cover of magazine, and soon into drugs or just crazy Hollywood life.  Or if they manage to survive that, they hit an older age and are no longer wanted by the market for whatever reason. We've seen this tragic tale over and over again.

This gorgeous, innocent looking young girl is so gifted. I hope she doesn't end up that way.

 Okay, am I crazy? Or do YouTube vids now animate when you mouse over them, when they never did so before?

Or did they always do that and I never noticed until yesterday?!

Ep. 11: "Chilled Dandan Noodles and Twice Cooked Pork of Myogadani, Bunkyo Ward, Tokyo"


Episode Synopsis. Inogashira Goro (Matsushige Yutake) was reluctant at first to take on a request from a client to accept a magazine interview on European interior design trends. In the end, he agreed and went to Myogadani in Bunkyo Ward to meet with editor Kawashima Hideki. The interview began right away at a cafe. However, he did not expect them to take his picture as well, so an awkward and stiff Goro had a difficult time posing for the camera... Afterwards, apart from feeling hot on a humid day, Goro also felt suddenly tired and hungry. He searched around downtown until he found "Houei" which serves Chinese cuisine. After he was greeted by clerk Hamada (Mizusawa Erena), Goro immediately ordered chilled dandan noodles which was perfect for the early summer heat. He also scanned the menu, and saw a number of unusual, unheard of items. After much pondering, he decided on twice cooked pork, chawanmushi, and steamed avocado to make up his one-man Chinese midday banquet...
