There was a power outage awhile ago. Expectedly so, everyone lost their one-hour worth of work. At the event that these sort of things happen (or when the computer fluctuates) you can hear a collective cry of banshees in this office. Me including. I very much sympathize although I only had to bewail the interruption of my Bonnie Pink Bit Torrent download.
This is one of the moments I am proud of having streaks of laziness.
Or else I would be a very mean banshee.
Bonnie Pink is my new addiction, thanks to marathon listening from osmalic
These days I'm more into Japanese pop than Rock. It's been a working therapy of some sorts. I can't seem to work with any highs or louds. I can't even work with Phantom of the Opera because the music is demanding too much attention enough to push work concentration.
Before Yahoo Launchcast failed on me, I had been occupied by "Hits of the 90s" (songs of them highschool days and what some people would scowl saying "the years before the Japanese invasion"), Motown Classics, Love Songs, and some Dance music. But if you are on Launchcast you'd realize that switching back forth stations eats 1/8 of your every 5 minutes (Do the math) and consequently those little 1/8s lead to 1 minute, 2 minutes...15 minutes...The songs will eventually be on ceaseless repeat until there's none.
Then again there's www.radioblogclub.com A genius invention. Used to be the sun in my day until the Internet speed here has deteriorated (and had been repeatedly sputtering) making the song loading time vewy vewy slow. Before you would sing the tunes of Garbage, you would already be listening to Star Wars (according to my playlist anyway). It's been a pain trying to make sure you're not going to be left singing in the air.
Ever since, I've been ransacking music from officemates' list and am just beginning to grow my own playlist through Winmx and Torrents.
Thus, Bonnie Pink. I uploaded one of her songs while precious DSL is still around to make us all happy. I snagged this one from osmalic
. It's called "Thinking of You" and it's like Bubblegum.
Plus two more. These are all happy perky songs it's hard not to like them or even turn them off in your head. These tunes had been stuck in my head as soon as the first time I listened to them.
As these are Yousendit stuff, they have a 7-day expiration.

(2) Kou Shibasaki - Glitter (Kou Shibasaki is Mitsuko from Battle Royale. She would have been in Kill Bill as Gogo Yubari's sister if she didn't have schedule conflicts. I don't dig celebrities-turned-singers, but there must be a reason why I can't get her songs out of my head.

(3) Tokyo Jihen - Bokoku Jyoshou (This is Shiina Ringo's new band. Shiina is one of Japan's biggest music icons. She was on a Time Asia cover once.)
