The Doulos is in Hong Kong again! I visited the ship during her last visit, and today was my second time.
Ding Dang (丁噹) has a lovely voice and she uses the whistle register well. She just had her first mini concert at a live music pub in Hong Kong. To my surprise, many of her fans are teenage girls around 13-14 (I always have an impression that these girls would love young boy groups like 棒棒堂, nevertheless, I am happy they have good taste.)
Here is one of my favorite songs of Ding Dang. The lyric is really good.
作詞：黃婷 / 作曲：林邁可 / 編曲：林邁可
猜不透 你最近時好時壞 的沈默
讓試探為彼此 的心 上 了鎖
猜不透 相處會比分開 還寂寞
無法感受每次觸摸 是真的 是熱的
如果 忽遠忽近的灑脫 是你要的自由
如果 忽冷忽熱的溫柔 是你的藉口
那我 寧願對你從沒 認真過
到底 這感覺誰對誰錯 我已不想追究
越是 在乎的人越是 猜不透
Amazing man from the Mainland China.
Good movie. Audrey Tautou is great. No one plays the young Coco better than she does. She has this special temperament that is perfect for the a rebellious character like Coco Chanel.
Coco Chanel marked the beginning of the independence movement of women. She didn’t want to attach to any men and wanted to work her own way out. Thanks to Coco and her fashion style, women can wear functional clothes like men, and thus, be a functional part of the society, not decorations anymore.
A song by Mayday. I like the music.
一雙大大耳朵 隨時在 向人打招呼
他是我朋友 陪我笑 陪我哭
尤其是當我 當我最無助 有他 聽著我傾訴
以為我愛著孤獨 卻又 崩潰的無助
一身傷人頑固 傷害我 還要我不哭
孩子練習著 讓悲傷麻木 快樂 也開始麻木
心と能井 (Shin and Noi), my favorite pair in the manga ドロヘドロ (Dorohedoro). I sketched with pencil and processed it with GIMP. Good fun and easy.
Dorohedoro is an underground manga which is running in IKKI (a Japanese monthly manga magazine).
The drawing style of Dorohedoro is completely stunning, messy and dark (unlike the main stream styles which are usually clean and tidy). The illustrator background of the author 林田球 (Q Hayashida) probably influences her drawing style. I don’t know if there is an English translation for this manga. Visit IKKI’s website here for more information of Dorohedoro.
Something more about Shin (right) and Noi (left): they are the most powerful killer pair in En’s mafia family. Unlike their killing skill, they are very childish and immature in daily life. It’s obvious that they like each other, but they are too shy to take action. Before they became partners, they were once enemy because Shin didn’t pay for his meal after eating in En’s restaurant. Here is 鳥太 (a friend) commented on their relationship:
“最初は反目しあっていたなんてロマンチックだね!” (translation: “how romantic for them to hate each other during the first meeting!”)
This is Hong Kong. Traditions and new technology coexist.
