Glee — “Vitamin D”

AH… How I love Glee… It’s one of the shows that I look forward to every Thursday (and sometimes Friday or even later on a busy week). Last week’s episode titled “Vitamin D” sees the teacher in-charge Will dividing the club into boys against girls for a mashup competition. And it was Entertainment with a capital letter E.

First, the guys, which happens to be my favourite of the two… It’s a mashup of “It’s My Life” by Bon Jovi and “Confessions Part II” by Usher.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

And next, the girls: “Halo” by Beyoncé and “Walking on Sunshine” by Katrina and the Waves. The “I can see your halo” action at 1:40 and 1:45 is super amusing… Hur hur~

Can’t wait for the next episode~! 😀

Videos

Am locked out of my office right now (because I didn’t make a copy of the key when I had the chance)… So here’s a compilation of videos that attracted my attention over the week.

CCTV Commercial

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Very nice advertisement for CCTV produced by Troublemakers.tv. Love the 水墨画 effect; it reminds me of the how Harry viewed captured memories in this year’s Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Favorite moments goes to all the animation of the human figures.

Single Ladies

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Great cover for Beyonce’s Single Ladies by Pomplamoose. Heh~ This apparently is known as a VideoSong, a new medium with 2 rules:

  1. What you see is what you hear (no lip-syncing for instruments or voice).
  2. If you hear it, at some point you see it (no hidden sounds).

Interesting~ But I was hoping that there were more variations in the VideoSong. Then again, it’s something that I could never accomplish and I am extremely impressed with what they achieved.

Courier

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Next is an update to the Microsoft Courier tablet. The user interface has become less futuristic (and more realistic?). For example, the URL bar now uses a GO button instead of a pen gesture to initiate loading of a webpage. Am quite curious to see how well the handwriting recognition works and how the user interface is going to present multiple search results when one searches through all his journal for a rather common keyword. Interesting to note that the pie-shaped menu design is once again used for the color palette.

This is still something that I look forward to its actual product launch.

蔡健雅 —《若你碰到他》

地球上住着很多人,
有些人我们认识,有些人我们不认识,
『有几个共同朋友』 『要不要加为好友』
熟悉了,亲密了,
然後,等到爱情终结了,
双方又将回到… 陌生的初始状态。
如果就像六度分隔理论说的,
『我与世界上任何一个陌生人的中间距离不会超过六个人!』
真的是这样吗?
穿梭在人群中的你 我 他
没有人能预知,我们明天 还会遇见 谁。

蔡健雅又出新专辑咯~!主打歌之一也是专辑的名称 —《若你碰到他》。

《若你碰到他》

词曲 演唱 制作:蔡健雅

我的脆弱坚强 互相作战
理性与感性失 去平衡感
不想让自己活在过去的遗憾
问宇宙 他是否还爱我吗
这问题 早就有答案

×
若你碰到了 替我问候他
告诉他 我过得很美满
已忘记他 已把泪水全部擦干

若你碰到了 替我问候他
祝福他和他的另一半
不在乎他 不再爱也不再等待

就这样吧 若你碰到他
×

我的自私慷慨 互相挑战
黑夜白天颠倒 造成困扰
常在最乐观时突然跌进沮丧
为何失恋后想恢复那么困难
只好找些催眠的话

爱 没有绝对
虽曾经以为  我终於体会
爱 不能倒退
该让它颓废 收起心碎

张惠妹 — 《彩虹》

Another nice song on my replay list these few days. Would usually avoid recommending two songs from the same album but this song caught my attention recently.

词:陈镇川  曲:阿弟仔

你整齐洁白的床
是我倾诉的地方
抱你哭著到天亮

你等待幸福的厨房
那次情人节晚餐
却是我陪你尝

衣柜不算太宽
藏著你的天堂
依然欢迎我分享

我们的爱很像
都因男人而受伤
却又继续碰撞

*
当天空昏暗 当气温失常
你用巨大的坚强总能抵挡
当尖锐眼光 当刺耳声响
你用彩虹的浪漫温柔包装
*

看我丢掉他的西装 比我先红了眼眶 笑我傻 陪我慌
当我找到幸福去向 帮我快乐的化妆 陪我傻 笑我慌

曹格 — 《借我一辈子》

心情不佳,借用好歌调试心情。欸,这次喜欢的歌还好不是太悲哀的。

所有有好嗓子的男生都应用这首歌和女友求婚。(能有一群好友做 background singers 就最好不过了。)条条词句都好有意思,非常喜欢~!

借你一辈子
借你我剩下的日子
答应过你的那些事
请你让我去证实
用你左手的无名指

借你我肩膀 借你温暖
借你美好的时光
借你胸膛 借你疯狂
借你放肆的飞翔

想不想永远留着这些不用问
永远到底有多长
我知道生命太短
所以不要有遗憾

如果你和我一样

时间像个陀螺般旋转
差点把我们的爱打乱
我不要再这样
我(真的)不要再流浪
我真的这么想

这一次我看见了生命的答案
就藏在你身上
让我完整的一半
最甜蜜的负担

*
借你一辈子
借你我剩下的日子

答应过你的那些事
请你(让我)去证实 对天使发誓

借我一辈子
借我你所有的日子

写下两个人的故事
用你左手的无名指
*

我们都曾经在爱里迷失方向
以为独自生活就不会受伤
不受伤 no no no no

我曾经把你错过
我不要把你错过
我认定你
一定会是我最美的结果

给你一辈子
给你我剩下的日子

答应过你的那些事
请你(让我)去证实 对天使发誓

给我一辈子
给我你所有的日子

写下两个人的故事

张惠妹 ─ 《掉了》

Favorite song from Zhang Hui Mei/A-Mit’s latest album A-Mit~

http://hpgqww.blu.livefilestore.com/y1pxJ7vWdt63S1Sl2ZWC0GU2QgleOk2cRIte5tsbnTz3z84vw2gLY6Xx2Eh7yBnP806RvdlqKL8Tg1GdJKxp_1tqINNEd663AoB/04%20Diao%20Le%20%E6%8E%89%E4%BA%86.mp3?download

作词∶吴青峰 作曲∶吴青峰

心疼的玫瑰半夜还开著
找不到匆匆掉落的花蕊
回到现场却已来不及
等待任何回音都不可得

微弱的风筝冬天里飘著
回不去手中缠线的那个
没有蓝天又何必去飞怎么适合

*
黑色笑靥掉了雪白眼泪掉了
该出现的所有表情瞬间掉了
瞳孔没有颜色 结了冰的长河
回忆是最可怕的敌人

故事情节掉了 主角对白掉了
该属于剧中的对脚戏也掉了
胸口没有快乐 断了翅的白鸽
不枯萎的藉口全掉了
*

曾经唱过的歌 分享过的笑声
在心中不断拉扯
想念不能承认 偷偷擦去泪痕
冬天过了还是会很冷

Glee

Glee

This has officially become my most anticipated TV show this Fall. Glee has the youthfulness and perk-you-up music of High School Musical, minus the childish story plot. Synopsis from the official website:

From Ryan Murphy, the creator of “Nip/Tuck” and “Popular,” comes GLEE, a one-hour musical comedy that follows an optimistic high school teacher as he tries to transform the school’s Glee Club and inspire a group of ragtag performers to make it to the biggest competition of them all: Nationals.

McKinley High School’s Glee Club used to be at the top of the show choir world, but years later, a series of scandals have turned it into a haven for misfits and social outcasts. WILL SCHUESTER (Matthew Morrison, Broadway’s “Hairspray”), a young optimistic teacher, has offered to take on the Herculean task of restoring McKinley’s Glee Club to its former glory with the help of fellow teacher EMMA PILLSBURY (Jayma Mays, “Ugly Betty”). It’s a tall order when the brightest stars of the pitch-imperfect club include KURT (Chris Colfer), a nerdy soprano with a flair for the dramatic; MERCEDES (Amber Riley), a dynamic diva-in-training who refuses to sing back-up; ARTY (Kevin McHale, “Zoey 101”), a geeky guitarist who spends more time avoiding bullies than chasing girls; and TINA (Jenna Ushkowitz, “Spring Awakening”), an awkward girl who needs to suppress her stutter before she can take center stage.

Will’s only hope lies with two true talents: RACHEL BERRY (Lea Michele, “Spring Awakening”), a perfectionist firecracker who is convinced that show choir is her ticket to stardom; and FINN HUDSON (Cory Monteith, “Kyle XY”), the popular high school quarterback with movie star looks and a Motown voice who must protect his reputation with his holier-than-thou girlfriend, QUINN (Dianna Agron), and his arrogant teammate, PUCK (Mark Salling).

Ah~! Too much text right… Here’s a snippet shown in the pre-pilot. Powerful and inspiring song. Makes me wish I could sing like them too.

Beyonce — “Single Ladies”

Distractions galore~! Look at this guerilla publicity stunt by some 100 Beyonce lookalikes at central London. A combination of professionals and Beyonce devotees answered the bootylicious singer’s audition call for the event which was to publicise her exclusive gig in the O2 arena on November 25. Coooool~ And distracting~

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Found the caption for the picture above at Hello! amusing. Emphasis by me.

A bevy of dancers, not all of whom were ladies in the strictest sense of the word, entertained commuters when they delivered a synchronised performance to the diva’s tune Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It). Photo: © Trident
