100 WW1 Firearms in 100 seconds

By looking at this video, these are the firearms that they’ve used in the First World War. 100 years ago.

From revolvers to handguns, and rifles to machine guns, they’ve used them for sure. And how years later, they were used in those movies that took place in WWI. Such as “Paths of Glory”, “Lawrence of Arabia”, “Hell’s Angels”, and so on and so forth. (Except for some that I do not admire on).

Thanks to a girl on YouTube who has been testing these firearms, I do thank her for this video. And I pray to god that they’ll be an amazing WWI movie, and be an Oscar winner like how “Lawrence of Arabia” did. On one superstition. That it won’t be too much dumb and harsh like how movies and TV shows are today. It has to be as excellent as how ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ did. And be an Oscar winner too mostly.


Studio Ghibli’s “Only Yesterday” on Gheorghe Zamfir

Gheorghe Zamfir, that Romanian pan flute musician, who did “The Lonely Shepard” in “Kill Bill”, did the song “Fluttering Green Leaves Wedding Song”. Or in Romanian, ‘Frunzuliță Lemn Adus Cântec De Nuntă’, was featured in Studio Ghibli’s “Only Yesterday”. I recognized that music when I first watched that anime masterpiece.

It was before the anime film director, Isao Takahata died of lung cancer in April of 2018. By listening to that song, it really fits as country music when Taeko visits his relatives in the countryside.

Also, I was very pleased that Studio Ghibli had chosen his song for that movie.

In this blog post, there is a short version and a long version. The short version is OST, as the original is just the way it is.

And to tell you the truth, I’m just glad that “The Master of the Pan Flute” worked for the support of Studio Ghibli and GKIDS. This would mean everything as country music for Isao Takataha’s masterpieces since he died of lung cancer.

A tribute to Isao Takahata

In April of 2018, by the time Isao Takahata had died at the age of 82, the news had spread all over the Internet. Studio Ghibli fans became shocked and very sad to hear the news. They did tribute videos in dedication to him. This is one of them, thanks to a lucky subscriber on YouTube.

It shows the filmography that he did as an anime director, producer, and everything that he did. Especially when he helped Hayao Miyazaki on his masterpieces, and how Hayao Miyazaki helped Isao Takahata with his masterpieces.

Although it was a shame that only two that he did were left out Oscar nominated. But he definitely needed Oscar awards including his Honorary Oscar award.

With the ending music from “Only Yesterday” by piano, these are his masterpieces….

R.I.P. Isao Takahata. We shall miss you very much indeed…

Sekai No Owari- Rain (Mary and the Witch’s Flower)

Just before GKIDS took a long time to get that anime masterpiece in English, this was the band that became famous in the summer of 2017.

Like my previous blog post that I mentioned, this is their real performance. And how they actually support the work of Hiromasa Yonebayashi and his new anime masterpiece, “Mary and the Witch’s Flower”. Studio Ponoc’s first debut masterpiece got the attention of anime fans.

No interruptions are in this performance. Just scenes and clips of that anime movie, while they perform.

Sekai No Owari- Rain (and behind the scene footage on ‘Mary and the Witch’s Flower’)

This Japanese band seems very beautiful. And like Priscilla Ahn, who volunteered on “When Marnie Was There” from Studio Ghibli, this band volunteered for Studio Ponoc on “Mary and the Witch’s Flower”. A new masterpiece from director Hiromasa Yonebayashi. The director of “When Marnie Was There”. In which he was surprised his movie was Oscar nominated for Best Animated Feature. But unfortunately, that anime masterpiece lost the Oscar award. No thanks to goddamn a-holes in North America who don’t give a shit.

For this one that he did, based on the book, “The Little Broomstick” by Mary Stewart, tells about a little girl named Mary who finds a mysterious flower that gives her the power to become a witch, which can last for one night only.

So rather than those “Harry Potter” movies, and “Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them”, this received $27.4 million in Japan at the box office.

And for this song that they did, this suits very well for this masterpiece. They also performed their song again at a live concert. Also, from that concert, this, and being on the news in Japan, they became stars now. The same for the Japanese cast, who volunteered to be the characters in this new anime masterpiece.

Finally in conclusion, this had been released in Japan on July 8th, 2017. Until later, GKIDS volunteered to distribute this movie in North America. With the voice talents of Kate Winslet and more, the release date for this, is winter of 2017.

So when you listen to this music video, look at the footage of that anime movie, and some behind the scenes from Studio Ponoc. With a live appearance of Hiromasa Yonebayashi himself! And you gotta see this really!! Anime is the best such as this as always! 🙂

Studio Ghibli AMV- Country Roads V2

Like the previous AMV post that I did on Studio Ghibli with this song, this music video is different. Same song, but with scenes from other Studio Ghibli movies that they didn’t added, they did this.

So, dedicated for the Japanese people and the masterpieces of Studio Ghibli, including Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata, here’s ‘Country Roads’. Sang by Olivia Newton-John.

Eurythmics- Would I Lie To You?

This happened in the Jim Carrey movie trailer of “Liar Liar”. Really good, as this was sung by the Eurthymics. The same band that did ‘Sweet Dreams Are Made of This’, ‘Winter Wonderland’ at Christmas, and ‘Sex Crime (1984)’ from the movie based on the novel by George Orwell.

Not only this occurred in that movie trailer, but was played in a Warner Bros. movie that suits their animation very well. Live action also mostly. “One Crazy Summer” with John Cusack.

Whenever I listen to this song, no one would ever lie to anybody. Or end up like how Jim Carrey did. Cause for what happened to him, made me think he is possessed by the devil. And you would need an exorcist like Leslie Jones to give him lots of holy water, and slapping himself hard in the face by saying these words…

“The power of Leslie compels you!”





Vivian Kubrick interview

During an anniversary of the JFK assassination, a legend showed up. And everyone were surprised of her. Composer, dog lover, cameo actress, and daughter of Stanley Kubrick, Vivian Kubrick showed up. She stated that she lives in Dallas, and has saw for what America had done. Especially when that fat pig Trump became the next U.S. President.

Ever since she made a cameo appearance in “The Shining” and “2001: A Space Odyssey”, she changed her hair from brown to ruby red. My mom’s hair is grey-ish like if she’s Mrs. Bates from “Psycho”. But I like hers regular brown when she was younger.

Like me and how everyone else is facing America today, gone insane and not the way it is, we do not appreciate changes in this future.

She still remembers for how Stanley Kubrick was before his death in 1999. For he was extraordinary in film making. And like her father, rescuing animals is a very good deed for her. However if Stanley Kubrick was alive and saw everything, he and Vivian will not appreciate for what movies, TV shows and how America had gotten into. Such as Edward Snowden, threats for the environment and everything. And if Al Gore saw more of this, he would fear the whole Earth would collapse.

That’s why we need to change, and never get into anything that can change lives on this Earth very badly. And for Vivian Kubrick that I was surprised to see, I believed for what she said on everything in this interview.

Studio Ghibli AMV- Country Roads

Studio Ghibli. Best anime studio in the entire world. And thanks to a lucky YouTube subscriber, he/she made this AMV on the hit song we all know of. “Country Roads”.

Not the John Denver version, but a new version. And as for those Studio Ghibli fans out there, you’ll love this on how Studio Ghibli is, how they deserve many Oscar awards, and how we should really thank them a lot. Anime is the best as I always say.

Froggy Mix- Razzmatazz

From Froggy Mix, that did the song ‘No Nagging Anymore’ for the anime TV series of “Cardcaptors”, that was once popular on Teletoon, this is another one of their music videos to “Cardcaptors” that I’ve never seen before in my life.

In fact, they never even showed this on Teletoon. Which is very interesting. Cause mostly they were more into ‘No Nagging Anymore’ by that girl singer and her friends.

For what showed me here, are the later days in ‘Cardcaptors’ that went from Season 1 or Season 2, to Season 3. On how Sakura and her friends were still dealing with the cards, as well as facing new threats that they might face.

‘Cardcaptors’ was still glory on Teletoon long ago. And how I appreciate this English version much better than a new English version that some people are making today. Cause for what they showed me here, everything in anime is beautiful. And that will never let you go in your entire life and memories. As long as you still hold onto it.

Teletoon and YTV still suck today mostly, but for the anime TV shows and anime movies including this that showed us, glory and beautiful. That I appreciate a lot really.
