I also found some YT video of Wasamin’s recent “one woman show” performed live last Halloween. She sings “Halloween Night” here (now it IS interesting to hear a solo-version), but she cracks up laughing during it, so you can expect that the real coupling song will be different.
Also, you can view more of Wasamin’s intimate little one-woman show here.
Better watch it today …
(Gulp) … My heart is filled with happiness now …
Starlight: Forget “Star Wars” … I’m standing in line for Misaki-san!!!
The wind has been knocked out of Denny’s sails, so he has not posted in several weeks. I have not even logged in for a couple of weeks (sorry). The weasels in the Japanese music industry have made it extremely hard to be a fan.
I don’t blame the artists, I don’t blame the girls – just the management dickweeds. (Well, that would describe 99% of the music industry in America too).
Thus, this is the dream I had: … as I approach the Japanese islands in my Black Ship … a lone Samurai (who looks a lot like Toshiro Mifune, by the way) is waving his sword on the beach and shouting (in English, oddly).
I know, I saw “Red Lion” too.
GET AWAY FROM HERE!!
THERE ARE NO “IDOLS” HERE!!!!
THERE ARE NO IDOLS … ONLY MULES!!!
… THAT’S RIGHT — WE ONLY HAVE MULES … GO AWAY!!!
IF YOU TRY TO LOOK AT ONE OF MY MULES I WILL CUT YOU DOWN!!!!!!
Ahem … needed some coffee after that…
Still, I can’t help but “fanboy” all over the delightful Miss Iwasa Misaki-san. Here she is on that Japanese variety TV show. I don’t know the same of it, all I know is that she is a frequent guest, and often sings “Enka” ballads while she wears an amazingly beautiful kimono.
Well, she is not wearing a kimono here, but she sings this wonderful “traditional” Japanese song.
Note the junior high kids from that popular anime about the junior high school band “Hibike! Euphonium” are there — IN REAL LIFE!
