逆光飞翔 Touch of the Light (2012) dir by Rong-ji Chang

The great Sakamoto Yuji is coming back in May with Mosaic Japan!! :DD
This time round, it’s a mini-drama (5 eps, 30 min each) about a recently fired stock broker who returns to his small home town and begins working at an adult video production company. Leading man is confirmed to be Nagayama Kento.
I’m not sure how much you can trust Asianwiki, but apparently the porn will be anywhere and everywhere, and of course, dude falls in love with one of the porn stars. I suppose there will be some sex, since the drama is rated R15+.
Either way, sounds like it’ll be a lot of fun. I just hope it’ll be subbed :(

园丁先生 — 南瓜妮歌迷俱樂部

南瓜妮歌迷俱樂部 PUMPKINey Fan Club - 园丁先生

My favorite pick from this compilation album put together by more than 30 bands/artists from Taiwan last December, titled “No to Nuclear Cooperation” (the title in Chinese smartly uses the word for cooperation “he zuo”, but replaces one of the words with the word meaning nuclear “he” that has the same sound, thus punning on both).There are bigger names such as Chocolate Tiger, Frande, but also loads of artists I’ve never heard of. A great collection!

Listen to the compilation here.

I just watched more English TV in the past 2 weeks than I’ve done in years. I’m not sure how long this phase will last, but here’s an ongoing log of what I have been and may be wasting my life on:

  • Top of the Lake
  • True Detective
  • Orange Is the New Black
  • Game of Thrones (S1, S2, S3)
  • My Mad Fat Diary (S1, S2)
  • Mad Men (S1, S2, S3, S4, S5, S6, S7)
  • Breaking Bad (S1, S2, S3, S4, S5)
  • The Wire (S1, S2, S3, S4, S5)
  • Treme (S1, S2, S3, S4)
  • Rectify

You’re All Surrounded Teaser 1

Count me in.

Frande 法兰戴乐团 - 我多么想成为你的鹿

I’m not sure how much more of Frande I can handle, to be honest. They destroy me.

This is a cover Frande did of the original by another Taiwan band, 南瓜妮歌迷俱乐部 PUMPKINey Fan Club, from their 果陀 EP released last July. Both versions are great, but my heart belongs to Frande.

我多麼想成為你的鹿 Oh how I would like to become your deer (play on ‘dear’)
有寬容的眼神和厚厚的胸膛 With an understanding gaze and a comforting chest for you to rest on
在這個被時間遺忘的地方 In this place abandoned and forgotten by time,
共渡悠長的午後 或者一個夢 Spend long afternoons, or share a dream

當黑夜無聲墜入 When darkness silently enters
你的心變得荒蕪 Your heart becomes barren
忘不掉總是那些最微小的事物 Only those tiniest of things remain unforgettable

我多麼想成為你的鹿 Oh how I would like to become your deer
用堅定的步伐穿越你的悲傷 Traverse your sadness with my confident steps
擔心迷路時我會在你身旁  When you’re scared of getting lost, I’ll be by your side
只要並肩走著 就不再孤單害怕 As long as we keep going, side by side, fear and loneliness will be no longer

當黑夜無聲墜入 When darkness silently enters
你的心變得荒蕪 Your heart becomes barren
忘不掉總是那些最微小的事物 Only those tiniest of things remain unforgettable
當時間停下腳步 When time stops moving
你的世界起了霧 Your world fogs up
願我勾起你的手輕聲地舞 I hope to grasp your hand and twirl you in a dance

當黑夜無聲墜入 When darkness silently enters
你的心變得荒蕪 Your heart becomes barren
忘不掉總是那些最微小的事物 Only those tiniest of things remain unforgettable
當時間停下腳步 When time stops moving
而回憶全是束縛 And all the memories are bound
讓我牽著你的手放聲地哭 直到日出 Let me hold your hand and cry, until the day breaks
