Sawajiri Erika- Destination Nowhere PV

November 28, 2007 Leave a comment

This is the music video/promotional video for Mop Girl’s OP.. I am also watching this drama at this time.. and I happened to think the opening sounded good. So I was pretty surprised to see that Sawajiri Erika singing the theme…… I guess I should have guessed it was her. Well I didn’t researched into this drama as much as I did for Galileo.. but still I figure this drama has its good moments. I am not outright quitting this show as I think I did with Joshi Deka.

Black Friday thoughts

November 24, 2007 1 comment

Best Buy Black Friday was a scam… shoot they said 25.. for the 100 pack DVD spindles.. I thought boxes and it was indeed only units.. so they sold out within probably with no product limit or 2 limit spindles within the first 12-13 people or 25 people in the store.. my mom and sister were not aggressive enough. We got there at around 5AM and it took them an hour and a half to get inside.

I did buy a new PSP system, so now I am figuring what to do…. what to do… I don’t really know how to play the PSP…so trying to figure it out is confusing I got the SIMS Castaway and Daxter to play. My sister got herself the pink DS…

Squirrel Infestation at Sage Hall

November 21, 2007 Leave a comment

Something amusing occurred this morning, as I came into work, my supervisor was cleaning the office with pine sol, I believe in preparations of closing up this weekend. He said he had felt better because the office was clean. While he was putting away the cleaning supplies, a squirrel appeared from somewhere, in front of my co-worker and I. It scampered around, perhaps looking for food or was cold.. but then it jumped onto the office chair and we were pushing it out. The funny part was that afterwards when we came to examine the chair, we discovered that the squirrel had peed on it. My supervisor had speculated if the rodent had the devious mind to come in and deliberately dirtied up the office again, but I then learned this was a recurring problem… right now outside on one of the window stills, there’s an active nest. Hmm… I wished I brought my camera though, it was a good candid camera scene.

Ai no Uta

November 21, 2007 2 comments

I was just thinking.. I usually leave dorama reviews to iceblueaya, since we watch some of the same dramas….perhaps we both don’t really share much of the same tastes in dramas. But I do know most of what she speaks about when she speaks about dramas sometimes. She just has a policies of waiting until the entire drama finish airing to watch the entire thing. So we recc each other, or I try to get her to watch the dramas I watched. She would watch the more school drama stuff while I prefer the working dramas.. meaning where the characters are all adults and working in jobs.

Anyhow this review is going to be kinda old since Ai no Uta (Love Song) came out in 2005. It is a ten episode family drama, starring Kanno Miho and Tamaki Koji. I have been a bit more interested in Kanno Miho, since she’s in the new Hataraki Man..which I have previews raws for.. but still is waiting for subs so I can curl up with it.

Back to Ai no Uta, this is a pretty funny, touching and sweet dramas. There are poignent moments where you want to cry and others where you would want to chuckle. It feels like watching Kimi wa Petto all over again.

Kanno Miho’s character is this gloomy girl named Matsuda Yoko – who attempts suicide after rationalizing that her life was a complete waste, after her mother gave birth to her and subsequently neglects her, her entire childhood. Pretty sad stuff.. I wonder if Japan has child service. – She tries to commit suicide, by jumping off a bridge in hopes of drowning and survived. Walking into a small restaurant where Tamaki Koji (Kataoka Yuji) was drinking with his two friends… she faints and is brought to the hospital. Oh one of Tamaki’s friends in this drama is Narimiya Hiroki who is Nobu in Nana 1 and Nana 2.

At the hospital, when she wakes up, she realizes that she can pretend to have amnesia, so that she can forget her past. Because of a desire to help her, Tamaki Koji lets her stay with him and his family. In this drama Tamaki plays a widowed police officer with three kids and a dog. Yokko stays with them and is in the process renamed Ai aka Ai-chan or Ai-san. Ai meaning love in kanji or Chinese.

So to not drag on this post, Ai falls in love with Koji among other things that occur in the drama.. which rounded out the drama making it funny, sad or nostalgic. The ending was kinda a let down, because it is not apparent that Koji and Ai get married or not. You also never got to see what happened with Ai’s abusive mother. Still this drama is really neat because of some moments in the drama, such as the episode where Ai starts to prepare bento boxes for the family.. or when she got her own room among other nice incidents in the drama.
