Beck Live-action! Fall 2010

Okay, okay. So I haven't watched the anime. But I did like their opening song Hit in the USA a couple of years ago! I just can't get into anime anymore these days... Watching real people is just more fascinating to me. Anyway back to the topic. Yea, Beck is an anime about a rock band (or something along those lines. Wikipedia tells me that the story focuses on the trials and tribulations of a band called BECK.)

But the reason I'm all excited is because of the HOTerrific cast!

Mizushima Hiro will be someone called Minami Ryusuke (Apparently he's the lead character.) He's a little too skinny for me but he is a decent actor by Jdorama standards (Hana Kimi, Zettai Kareshi, Mei-chan no Shitsuji).

Osamu Mukai will be smiling again as Yoshiyuki Taira. Hmmm, he's playing another white-haired guy... (Not like I'm complaining, I &hearts this guy! :-P) Previous doramas: Nodame Cantabile, Seigi no Mikata, Mei-chan no Shitsuji

Sato Takeru as Koyuki, whoever that is. Sato also acted in Mei-chan no Shitsuji, he's a feisty one there and I have a sneaking suspicion that I might have spied him sporting a tutu in Princess Princess D (only watched an episode because cross-dressing ain't my thing).

You might have already guessed it, but yes! The Beck live-action casting news is awesome because I'm currently watching Mei-chan no Shitsuji! It's a slap-sticky story about butlers and the ladies they serve (a fan-girl's dream) and it's awful when they try to be sentimental but the hilarious bits are worth it. And I wouldn't miss a chance to watch these 3 in action again! :)

Another thing to look forward to in Beck! Kiritani Kenta!&hearts (Crows Zero, Ryusei no Kizuna, Kurosagi) He was hilarious in Ryusei no Kizuna and I liked him in Crows Zero (utterly pointless but it has its cool factor).

Anyway, I'm planning to watch Atashinchi no Danshi after Mei-chan if I can get the episodes from my roommate, Shu, hee hee... (More Osamu Mukai!) But I have to keep in mind that exams are coming, deadlines are looming and there are tests to cram for... The last few weeks before exams are always the most painful.


PS: Blogger is giving me problems with larger pictures. I blame Ketsana. (Click for close-ups.)

Funniest Malaysian Names!

I laughed out loud for 10 straight minutes reading this old post at Mr. Badak's website! If you must know, I was searching for the meaning of mulau (crazy in Kadazan) because I wasn't quite sure of the meaning (I'm a poor excuse for a Kadazan), and I stumbled across this. It's not even the post itself (about an unfortunate man named Mulau bin Burit) that was the absolute funniest, it was the commenters! Teachers and government workers come across the funniest names...

Imagine being named...
Alias bin Mati
Injin A/L Bot (changed his name already...)
Penus (Oh dear.)

Lee Je Hoon to Belt Some Notes for Paparotti!

How cute is this piece of news? Everybody's favorite actor gone for military service, Lee Je Hoon, is acting as a gangster who wants to sing! Jang Ho (Lee Je Hoon) has a talented voice, but because of his poor family background, he became a gang member. Nevertheless, Jang Ho still likes to sing and desperately wants to become a singer. He enlists the help of Sang Jin (Han Suk Kyu) who used to be a well regarded performer in Italy, but is now a music teacher at a local high school in a small city. He's not the most passionate of teachers. Kang So Ra plays Sook Hee, a classmate who has a crush on Jang Ho. 
This movie is based on the true story of Kim Ho Joong, who first appeared on Korean TV Show, Star King, on July 18, 2009. During the program, Kim Ho Joong surprised people with his vocal abilities and also made people cry because of his back ground story. He grew up as a troubled kid who joined gangs, but because of his grandmother he began to sing in earnest. Stills and the …

Gawky Poses People Do Best Forgotten

Ever seen a pose that you thought looked terrible even though the person doing it is a mega hot fiiiiiine piece of...well, you get my drift. I'm sure if I asked a guy, they would have plenty of other suggestions but here are just three that occurred to me while typing out this post.

1. The Angry Chicken Pose

E.g. Sohee from the Wonder Girls (middle girl) - BTW their new album WONDER WORLD is out! Check it out! :)

I have never seen anyone pull this off and still look attractive. (Also known as The Stomach Ache or Pelvic Thrust)

2. Woman Draped on a Car Pose

No offense to auto babe ladies everywhere, but I can never find this not tacky. It must be difficult to twist yourself in a sultry pose on a heap of metal (something I, a mere mortal, can never hope to achieve) and I'm glad that at least you're being paid for it.

3. Cutesy Asian Poses

There's a whole multitude of these but I'm pretty sure you're familiar with the like. E.g. Peace Sign (I'm totally guilty of this…
