Got my ticket!

6 Aug

KISS‘s upcoming Saturday, October 19th (2013) show at the 幕張メッセ (Makuhari Messe) near Tokyo is sold-out.

But my friend got us both excellent seats for this sold-out show. He mailed my ticket and these チラシ (flyers) to me … I received them today!

Because this show is sold-out, KISS added two more shows to their Japan tour … both at the famous 日本武道館 (Budokan) in Tokyo.

Besides these KISS flyers, my friend sent my a flyer for this Thursday’s Aerosmith / Japanese band B’z show.

What type of music do you like to listen to? Do you go to concerts often?

Yamato and Gundam

3 Dec

A live-action movie version of the Japanese anime 「宇宙戦艦ヤマト」 (“Space Battleship Yamato“) has recently hit the movie theaters in Japan.

It stars Japanese sex-symbols Takuya Kimura and Meisa Kuroki (whom I wrote about in this post).

Japanese movies usually have theme songs by Japanese artists but this movie’s theme song is titled “Love Lives” and is performed by Steven Tyler (lead vocalist of the American rock band “Aerosmith“).

Here’s the official trailer which features a bit of the song:

And here’s the entire song:

Last year I wrote a post about “Cup Noodle” in Japan giving away miniature Gundam figures with purchase of their instant ramen.

Well, Nissin Cup Noodle has teamed up with Gundam again.
In Japan you can buy a special, limited-time-only Cup Noodle that comes with a plastic reusable “Gundam” ramen cup.
