NOTD: Disco Mint! – After-Halloween Mani November 1, 2009

“I will stone you stone you, wrap my arms around you, I will stone you stone you, my little halo!”

026 025

Do you recognise the song? It’s “Halo” by Soil (totally NOT Beyonce! 😀 ) and it’s what this polish reminds me of. It feels like having a halo around my hands, and I’m completely stoned by the look right now. If it’s sunny tomorrow, I’ll probably run into poles because I’m looking at my tips all the time xD The pictures don’t capture the whole awesomeness, they are too silvery. In real life, it clearly looks green, like strong mint-flavoured chewing gum.

There is a whole little collection of holos at the drugstore near my university, and I’m definitely planning to get some more! *excited!*

See you soon!


Funny Japanese Stuff: Alphabet song October 18, 2009

Here’s the next part of the Funny And/Or Interesting Things That I Found In Japan series! Most of you probably know the song that we used to sing in primary school to memorize the alphabet, right? This is a really nice ska version of it, written and performed by the Japanese band Doberman:

EDIT: Recently, some bloggers from the Netherlands got sued for copyright infringement because they embedded Youtube videos in their blog posts. It’s kinda stupid IMO, punishing people for making free (!) advertising for the music companies by giving new and little known bands and artists the attention they deserve. But it seems to be the law and I don’t want to be drawn to court for it, so here’s how to listen to Doberman’s alphabet song:

Go to youtube.com and search for this: doberman アルファベット  . You can copy and paste the second word. Take the first result. There are lots of other good songs by this band in the similar videos. Most of them are better than this one 😉 For some  of my favourites, insert one of these after “doberman”:  赤い太陽,月,車掌は寝転んだまま,or Leap for Joy.

Have fun!
