Here~

Well, I'm here again. Its almost May and schools going by fine, but not fast enough.

Its currently past 1 A.M here and I have my philosophy ISU due today and I still haven't finished. I've become the worst procrastinator ever. Thought I was bad before? Nothing compared to now.

I've been playing a lot of Pathfinder lately with Jul, Mar and her family. Its pretty cussing awesome.

Alright I think I've taken enough of a break.

Well, I could say I'm sorry for not updating my Livejournal, but I'm not.

Life is busy.

Life is boring.

Life is turning into this tedious thing I really want to get over.

Got a tumblr account (Here: guibass.tumblr.com).

School is okay. It's exam month. Woot. I ended up dropping Economics, because well shit I hate the class. As you can tell I'm not in a good mood. I have a spare in that time slot. I've got Science after that and it's fun. Yeah, we just had a Lab Exam on Friday which wasn't fun. Screw Parallax. I have a Law exam tomorrow. After that I just have to worry about Canadian History which shall truly be a breeze.

When I'm not so pissed off and feeling a little nicer towards my LJ account, I'll be back.

school.

It's 1 P.M, on a school day. I had a quest/test/quiz thing today in my Economics class, but I ended-up missing it. I had way too much homework and it doesn't help that Pottermore/Pokemon Script on MSN/people in general were distracting me. I ended up getting to be at roughly 3 A.M once all my homework was finished. Dear lord, never again. School is okay. I'm not too excited about everything. Classes are okay. There less then a handfull of people I talk to in each class. Not awkward at all. I think my new friends in Economics missed me though. We don't talk to anyone else but each other. Not too worried about my Science class, since everyone either knows each other or are friends. Law isn't awkward at all.... except for our teacher. I'm pretty terrified of that class actually. I'm still debating on dropping it. Canadian History, Mary is probably missing me right now.

Speaking about Canadian History, I'm working on our first project. The First Nations Groups of Canada. I took the Beothuk's, since they're probably the most interesting to me (beside's the Haida, they are amazing, but someone had taken that one before I got the chance). I'm just pretty sad that they don't exist anymore. Reading about them makes me want to visit Newfoundland. Maybe I'll add that in with my dream to see P.E.I.

Well, I'm done.

August.... What?

I can't believe it's August already. Let me pull up my list and see what I've done so far this past month.


1. Go to the ROM
2. Go to the Ontario Science Centre
3. Read all Harry Potter books
4. Visit a Used Bookstore downtown
5. Watch all Harry Potter Movies to date

6. Watch all Star Wars Movies
7. Buy Hunger Games and the rest of the series.
       -- Bought Hunger Games on Saturday. Waiting for Paperbacks of the other two books now.
8. Buy something from an antique shop
9. Go on a Picnic with Minaly & Quelythe
10.
See another movie with Mary

11. Watch the Pirates Trilogy
12. See Season 1-4 of Doctor Who
13. Find time to see Season 5
14. Catch-up on Season 6


Alright, watched Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 with Mary, so that's killing 2 birds with one stone. Minal refuses to go on a Picnic, so I'm changing that goal to 'Go on a Picnic'. I'm thinking of going Downtown this weekend, but it depends on when Juliana gets back from her trip (which she did say was soon). I'm going to try and borrow the first and second Harry Potter books, since those are the only ones I haven't read (I'll through Goblet of Fire in there too, since I sort of half-assed read that). I'm going to watch all three Pirates of the Carribean with Rebecca (when I finally know when she's not working). The Doctor Who is one that I'm probably not going to get done until roughly mid-winter, since I don't have the resources nor the time to fit the whole series in. I'm adding the following goals:

15. Have a Lord of the Rings Marathon with Mary... again.
16. Finish all the Bass Theory books Mr. O gave me.
17. Master one of my Grade 8 Piano pieces.
18. Find a new place the bed in my room can go with Mary's help
19. Find out if I'm in the Christmas Parade
20. Re-make my Egyptian Beaded Necklace

Writer's Block: A novel idea

Which book would you want to see turned into a videogame?

I'd love to see Digital Fortress by Dan Brown be turned into a video game. It would probably be a mystery/puzzle game, but it would be fun.

Review #20: One in a Million - Yamashita Tomohisa


One in a Million – Yamashita Tomohisa
Tracklist:
1. One in a Million
2. Kuchizuke de Aidos
3. My Dear
4. World is yours
5. One in a Million (Instrumental)

One in a Million comes in 3 editions: Regular, Limited A & Limited B. For this Review I’ll be using the Regular Edition.

One in a Million is Yamashita’s 3rd single, and probably his most electronic/techno one I’ve heard thus far. The title song, One in a Million, starts off pretty generic for a pop/techno song, but the chorus gets me every time, but by the time it passes, the autotune really ruins it. I mean it’s really heavy autotune and it’s really distracting from the song. I wish I could take it out, but I can’t. Otherwise, it’s nice for an absentminded day.

Kuchizuke de Adios reminds me of old J.E music, with its combination of orchestral and techno music and instruments. This song is actually better then One in a Million, in my opinion. Reason? The chorus and minor autotune. It has a very 70s feel.

My Dear is okay to say the least. The piano riff is pretty cute and the pre-chorus has me jumping around. The chorus seems pretty much the same level of emotion and dynamics as the rest of the song, which is actually, for some reason, refreshing to me. The melody during the chorus reminds me of something that would most likely be in a Perfume song. I enjoy the switching between the chorus melody and the piano riff.

World is yours is my favourite song off this single. It’s down-to-earth, with Yamashita only being accompanied by a guitar and piano. Then the addition of violins for the chorus adds to it. Then gentleness in Yamashita voice gives me the impression that he’s singing about something rather close to him and that he really loves it. Over all, the song is very enjoyable.

3.5/5

Review #19: Loveless - Yamashita Tomohisa


Loveless – Yamashita Tomohisa
Tracklist:
1. Loveless
2. Crush on You
3. Dance Jam
4. After the Rain
5. Run from You
6. ME
7. Moon Light
8. Loveless (Instrumental)

Yamashita’s 2nd single, Loveless is an amazing mix of Pop-ballads, a little Rock and some Techno. The title song itself is a lovely track that I have no problem listening to at anytime. That I was expecting. What I wasn’t expecting was how much I would like the other tracks.

Crush on You give Yamashita a nice song to work with. It has a nice rock flavour to it, while remaining true to the pop/techno-feel that the overall single has. Yamashita has improved tremendously. The song has me dancing along by the time the first chorus rolls in. Run from You is by far the best song on this single. The beats funky and the guitar gives it a nice Latin feel, while still making it an edgy song about the thrill of the chase. Once again, Yamashita’s English has improved so much that I can understand everything he says in this song.

ME has its ups and downs. The opening has me jumping all over the room & chanting “ME” along with it. Not much to it after that, but it’s still a nice song to just listen to. Moon Light is another favourite of mine, though it’s pretty sexy. The chorus makes me think of a couple dancing together in a ballroom. It’s got a nice easy, funk feel to it.

Dance Jam is really what the title says. A dance jam, where all you’re just supposed to do is dance. It has a sort of 70s Disco vibe to it. It didn’t make me dance. After the Rain seems like a song I would like, but I didn’t. It’s cute and a typical ballad, but it sort of ruins the flow of the single. Maybe if I listened to it on its own, it’s nice, but after Crush on You and Dance Jam, it really just doesn’t fit. I can’t appreciate it like this.

Overall, Loveless is a great single. Packed with a bunch of great songs, it shows us how much Yamashita has grown from his ‘Daite Senorita’ single.

4/5

Getting back to what I normally do in the summer, taking pictures. The backyard is starting to look more and more interesting these days, with all the new planets and bushes I planted in the spring finally starting to bloom. My Garden is looking like a mess, but my Tomatoes are lookin' fine, so I'm not too worried.

I've been sick the last few days with a horrible summer cold, but I was finally able to finish a lot of piano theory work that I had laid-off because of exams. I still have a bit left, so I think I'll head off and do that now.

My friend Mary lent me a few copies of her Sims 2 collection, and while I like playing video games, lately I've haven't been playing it. When I leave to go and play some video games, I remember that I have piano to practise, bass theory and technical books to finish, theory to complete, pictures to take, paintings that need to be started and finished, ceiling fixtures to complete and so many of things that need to be done. I'm a little mellow today, so I'm writing to take up a little time. Yeah, I believe I'm done for the day.


Cheers to a good summer.
