      生命は宝島~ + ♫ MUSIC ♫ ~ double post!

      生命は宝島 means "life is a treasure island"

      I created this new motto of mine myself. It's so true.. Life is a treasure island, and the treasure is destiny. I believe in destiny you see. I'm kind of superstitious too. (burn the witch!!! hahaha)

      あら、おーい mr。仙女
      atm I have a horrible headache and I was going to go play this game called Space Alert to my friend's place... But since instead of chilling out in my head, this headache keeps pounding like a madman so I'm going to write a new post. ABOUT MUSIC! you know, last post was about inspiration in pictures. Well, this time, let's focuse on music ♪♫♪

      I listen to all kinds of music but I'm going to tell you about fav genres, my favorite artists and bands and random songs too. At the end of each section, there's a song or two from one of the mentioned artist. THESE THINGS ARE NOT IN ANY ORDER since my favorites change all the time. And posting Youtube links mean that they might not always work since Youtube is deleting videos all the time.. But well, I'll write the title too so if the link doesn't work, you can try finding it yourself...  ^^'

      THIS FIRST POST WILL MAINLY BE ABOUT JAPANESE MUSIC AND KOREAN MUSIC! Why "only" these? Well, because I listen to the music of these countries a lot! :D second post will be about Western music mostly.

                            LAST THING: WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT: J-POP VS. K-POP?

                            I love/hate this subject. I LOVE BOTH OF THESE GENRES! But what about that thing about K-pop groups being better in dancing and on the other hand J-pop groups rocking the vocals? I guess it's sometimes true.


                            OKAY! Next post is about all the other music I listen! So be prepared for another gigantic post... 

                            * オーホッホッホー。。。*

                            Monday, April 18, 2011

                            ♔ inspiration post ♔

                            MAJOR PICTURE SPAM!

                            What inspires me?

                            I shall answer to my own question with some pictures. Of course there are many, many other things (like music) that inspire me so this is only a little peek of inspiration. Maybe you'll become inspired too. So...

                            位置について、用意、ドン
                            character00272 Free Emoticons   Characters

                            1. Stands: candy stands, refreshment stands, food stands, COLORFUL STANDS!
                             - Remember when I told about that British candy stand in Tampere's Keskustori? It's so weird but when the stands are so colorful and the stuff they sell is colorful and pretty, I just want to buy everything! Okay this was an odd start, ahaha.





                            2. Vivienne Westwood
                            - Many pics! ^^ Dame Vivienne Westwood, the lady in the second last pic. This British lady is 70 and still a punk queen! I don't follow fashion that much but she's probably my favorite designer. I mean c'mon, she is wild! She's beyond normal and that is why I love her designs! For those of you who don't know Vivienne Westwood, check this (and Wikipedia ofc)

                            3. Stars & planets
                            - I have adored stars since I was the size of a foam extinguisher. Planets came along later. We have a telescope at my folks' but I haven't got to use it.. yet! 
                             
                            4. Surrealism - Salvador Dalí
                            - My favorite art style is surrealism, I love all the phantasmagoric, visional style in this art style. And Salvador Dalí is maybe my favorite artist. This picture is his painting "Swans Reflecting Elephants" from year 1937. It gives me different images. One conception is: wrong body image. Of course Dalí's most famous painting must be "The Persistence of Memory". You know, melting clocks."The Face of War" is awesome too!
                            By the way, did you know that the logo of Chupa Chups is designed by Salvador Dalí?

                            5. Hello Kitty & Lady Gaga
                            - Well d'oh, of course! Who wouldn't adore lovely Hello Kitty and on the other hand Lady Gaga's crazy style? People who hate these two are just too cowards to admit it XP No but seriously, invincible pair.

                            6. Dolls!
                            - Rozen Maiden is one of my favorite animes, I a lolita dress, have two huge boxes of Barbies and their stuff, I sometimes dress up as a doll... I must hate dolls, hahaha. 
                            CHECK OUT EVANGELINE GHASTLY!
                            I wish one day I could get one of those dolls..


                            "Japanese forest city". Painting of an unknown artist. One of my Top 10 favorite pictures.
                            7. Japan and Japanese nature
                            - No surprise either, right? But the pictures speak for themselves. I'm reeeeeaaally hoping to get to Japan next year since can't probably go this summer for the lack of money and well because of the situation in Japan which is no reason actually because I really want to help people there!

                            Mizuuuuuuu~
                            Asami Hikaru (Lucifer)
                            Someone tell me: WHO IS THIS??
                            8. Takarazuka Revue
                            愛、それはあまく。。。 Mizu Natsuki ♥ Ayaki Nao ♥

                            Recently started to like Asami Hikaru too!
                            I want Takarazuka dvds but they're soooo expensive... -__-' I want to watch ベルサイユのばら 2001 but can't find it anywhere...


                            AND NOW SOME RANDOM INSPIRATION PICTURES:

                            Cotton candy martini X3

                            LAST POST:                                Facebook smileys

                            THIS POST:Skype Emoticons



                            THE WEATHER IS SO LOVELY! ♥ Dear butler, could you bring my tea to the balcony please?




                            Ah, I'm simply just loving the weather and that's why feeling so happy too. A bit wistful though due to the fact that my friend Emmi left for Helsinki and then to Crete today. I'm going to miss her soooo much! But we had fun until the very last minute today. I'm hoping to get to Crete on July with my folks so I could get abroad (I haven't been abroad for many years, it sucks sucks sucks) and also meet my friend there.


                            OLD MEEEMORIEEEEES ♥ That's me second from right. This picture is so cute!
                            Me on the right. Not so old meeemorieeees ♥ Lylle and me have some lovely sense of humor.. = really horrible sense of humor.

                            Haha, those pics sure tell that my style has been changing A BIT! (‐^▽^‐)オーホッホ

                            Like a stereotypical Finn, I usually don't tell my friends that they are important to me but they really are. And I still think my friends know it. Geez I've been so emotional and oh-so-caring-and-tearface-lately it makes me a bit sick, niahahaha. But anyways...
                            My friend Lylle took this ancient pic of me. I knew all this space was going to be useful somehow.

                            友達と一緒に無敵だよー!!! ちゅー 

                            ( ゚ヮ゚)!!!

                            Okay I'm running with too much sugar again. I gotta clam down...

                            Spring's first duckface!!!

                            But what else? Oh somewhat a weeeeek ago I ordered my first CIRCLE LENCES from Pinky Paradise!!! They are shipping the lences now.. I really hope they don't get stuck in customs... *m* if not, I'll do a post about them :)


                            And now I got to say that I did NOT order the lences because I want to become a gal. I'm not a gal. I have been wearing fake lashes for few years now, I like to dress up girly and so on but I have my own style and I really don't define it as gal. It's gyaru-ish but also other stuff. I take inspiration from everywhere ^^


                            THAT OCCURED TO ME - NEXT POST WILL (FINALLY) BE AN ISPIRATION POST! So see ya next time~

                            WAIT WAIT! Let's post two videos too! 1st one is abosolutely hilarious video about two dogs dining and the 2nd one is SNSD's Baby Baby ^^



                            Sooyoung (수영) is my favorite Girls' Generation member! She's so tall and pretty! Too bad she isn't given so much spotlight... (´;ω;`)
