Sukiyaki

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wSolIumWT0

One of the most popular break-up songs from the 90’s is Sukiyaki, which was sung by 4PM.The song is so filled with emotions, from a lover who contemplates about losing the love of his life and how he wants her back.

Almost everyone who had a failed relationship and break-up in the past can really relate on this song. I myself love this song. And for some reasons even though I have lost the love of my life from years back, somehow, there is still a part of me that misses her and wants her back. My most favorite lines in the song is this:

“If only you were here
You wash away my tears
The sun would shine
And once again you’ll be me mine, oh, mine”

This just makes me reminisce of all the good memories which we shared. It makes me feel melancholic and nostalgic. Just a bitter-sweet memory, makes you smile and just look back. But just like in the end of the song, I have to face the reality that she is gone and that she will never come back.

“But in reality
You and I will never be
‘Cause you took your love away from me”

I have also learned that the song was originally sung by a Japanese artist, which explains the Japanese title. It was originally performed by Kyu Sakamoto. The interesting about this song is that it is the only song, entirely in Japanese, which topped the US Billboard for three weeks on 1963.

Cloud Atlas (A mind-boggling film)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWnAqFyaQ5s&feature=relmfu

At long last, The Wachowskis are back! Their upcoming film, Cloud Atlas, is set to be shown in the big screen late this year. I expect that this will be a good comeback movie for them. Their remake of the “Speed Racer” didn’t really bring them the kind of success that they enjoyed with their previous works “The Matrix Trilogy” and “V for Vendetta”.
The film is adopted from the novel, of the same name, written by David Mitchell. A brief synopsis describes it as “An epic story of humankind in which the actions and consequences of our lives impact one another throughout the past, present, and future as one soul is shaped from a murderer into a savior and a single act of kindness ripples out for centuries to inspire a revolution”.
I think the ideas presented in this film can be simply put as this: “A person’s life is interconnected with another person. No matter what reincarnation or what life time they are born into, they will always cross paths with that same person whom they have previously met in a past life time. Their actions in the past and present will have a significant contribution on the life that they will be reaping in the future.”
This movie is actually one of those mind-fuck films. It makes you think, it makes you question reality and it makes you say “Yeah, what if”. Which I think, is one of the reasons that make it really good. I find films like these very enjoyable. You cannot simply fathom on how this movie will end. And judging by the length of the trailer, this is one of those “3 hour long” types of movies.
The casting is nice, all star as how they refer to it, which features Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugo Weaving and Jim Broadbent. How awesome can it get? As far as I remember, I have never seen a Tom Hanks film that is a flop. Any film which stars him is really good, plus he is really an astounding actor. I am counting on seeing another classic Tom Hanks performance. It is also interesting to see him with Halle Berry. If my memory serves me right I have not seen any film which casts both of them. For sure, you also have to watch out for Jim and Hugo’s performance on this one.
I am eager on how they are going to present the jumps in life times. I just love that they really elaborated on these and I hope that they presented in a very nice manner. It spans from the past “tribal” time to the present “modern day” time and to the “futuristic and robotic” time.
I simply cannot wait for this to be shown. This is definitely one of those films which is really enjoyable to watch on the big screen.

Kobe vs MJ

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v27Hk5OIe-k&feature=share

The video basically shows the moves that Kobe has imitated from MJ. This is just an amazing and jaw dropping video as you can see Kobe has been like MJ 2.0, almost identical or the same but not as good as Michael. Arguments and debates never end when they asked who between these two players is the Greatest Of All Time. As for me, my pick would be Jordan obviously simple because of the following: 6 Finals Appearance, 6 Rings, 6 Finals MVP , 5 Regular Season MVP, 10 Scoring Titles, 2 Olympic Gold Medals

Just Enjoy the video and watch the similarities in their moves.
