funny about Paris

Standard

Just read on an US Weekly issue that a study at McGill University in Montreal showed that in a presence of a full-body cardboard cutout of Paris Hilton, male mice that have just received painful injections seemed to have some degree of pain reduction as seen from their licking their wounds less. Researches said it might be something about Paris’ eyes that kill male mice’s pain; whereas the same behavior was not seen in female mice because, joked by the reporter, the female mice might be too focused on Paris’ outfit!

ha!

格里杰夫

Standard

我一般很少注意什么男歌手,因为我觉得男人唱歌大多数唱到高音的时候就会让我受不了。除非他的声线是像女声那样本来就可以唱得很高的。就像Michael Jackson。Michael的声音当然是符合我对男声的所有要求啦。另外,只单纯像女人的声音可不行,一定要带一点阳光气味。这就是为什么我可以接受邰正宵却不太敢恭维张信哲的原因了。因为后者实在太娘娘腔了。(应该说声音,因为我并不知道他本人是否娘娘腔)。

那怎么会注意到格里杰夫的呢?还不是因为他与邰正宵合唱的“天罗地网”。我的天,实在太好听了! (试听到: http://www.haoting.com/musiclist/ht_498a51aad96373a3.htm)。两位歌手的声音形成鲜明的对比。相比之下,格里杰夫的声音更有磁性,唱功更加娴熟。一开始,专辑介绍里根本没提到此人是谁, 看了一些报道,才知道是被邀请来的“蒙古青年”,怪神秘的。再过了一段时间,得知邰正宵跟他已经像师生般要好了,邰还签了杰夫让他发行第一张同名专辑。

让我失望的是,专辑里格里杰夫的声音根本不是那回事了!那个在“天罗地网”里的雄壮,性感的声调到哪里去了?剩下的只有故作甜美,又带点娘娘腔的声音,还让我有努力模仿周杰伦,咬字像台湾腔的感觉。唉,真是不可解呀。为什么他没有变好,而是变得更差呢?他自己可能不知道吧!不过我明白还是有人会欣赏这样的“风格”的,所以我还是把试听的链接放上来吧:

下雪天…

Standard

最讨厌了!
可能今天是科洲今年第一次真正下雪,人人都特别地小心翼翼。不过也实在太小心了,路上车子的速度比人行还要慢。时速只有3英里~~~我的天!害我上班短短的路程开了一个半小时!我气死了!唉,今晚下班后还要继续搏杀,本来还想回家前去买好吃的圣诞巧克力的~~~

科洲什么都好,就是下雪不好!冷,湿,脏不说,开车还要除雪,还要超级小心免得发生事故。很多时候是你好好的停在那,后面的人煞车不了撞上来。真是…… 看来以后老了还是得搬到不下雪的地方去住!嗯!

From and To Jessie…

Standard
Or are you calling yourself Jayez now?

谢谢你介绍我听《甜蜜生活》。“娃娃”魏如萱的声音,特别是唱英文歌的时候让我想起一位歌手 – Sarah McLachlan。听过吗?

说过给你介绍几张我很喜欢,也挺合我们两人口味的CD过你听。第一张叫Blender,是一个由两个女生的组合The Murmurs唱的。对!感觉还真像我们喜欢的“2个女生”。 不过她们的试听不好找啊,事关她们好像是在大学里自己组团的。表演生涯也像“2个女生”般出了几张专辑就不知到哪里去了。你试试看在eMuel里直接搜索,应该可以找到下载。或者可以到这里听每首只有30秒的片断:http://www.artistdirect.com/nad/store/artist/album/0,,361334,00.html 这是专辑的封面:

Blender 是她们(Leisha Hailey and Heather Grody)叫”The Murmurs”的最后一张作品。她们的和声真的蛮好听的!

接下来这张不知道你会不会喜欢呢?Jenny Lewis with the Watson Twins — 《Rabbit Fur Coat》. Jenny Lewis是一个Indie Rock团的女主唱,后来单飞了,出了这张专辑。好像里面所有的歌都是她自己写或是参与创作的。除此以外,我很喜欢她的声音:清楚,细腻。

中间红色衣服的当然就是Jenny Lewis她本人了。后面两个双生姐妹是她找来配唱的。在这里可以试听:http://www.tingcool.com/7/3264/7805/

我也是听了一两次之后才接受的。我建议从第2首听起,因为第1首是intro,没什么特别。

最后,你知道英国的一个年轻歌手,现在在美国也挺红的,Lily Allen。哈,一开始是名字引起我的注意,后来听了她的fun pop style的歌也就觉得她挺可爱,特别的。

在这里可以试听:http://www.tingcool.com/7/3760/8612/ 这是她的处女作,叫”Alright, Still”.

zzzzzzzzzzz…. 我困了,下次再介绍其他在我的personal music collection里的CD给你听。希望你喜欢这次的几张!哦,如果你一早就听过这些的话我就更高兴了!有空告诉我你的感想吧!

Feeling lazy…

Standard

If my blog was going to be like a diary, then I really should stick to writing a day’s event on that day. But lately I haven’t done so, I’ve been feeling lazy. I’ve found myself back-dating a lot of events, well, I guess it’s better late than never! So, my friends, to read my blog, you gotta know the newest posts aren’t always going to be on top! 😉 It’s better than not writing at all, right? At least a year from now I can bring back memories! Good day to you all!

Golden Plate II

Standard

今天早上因为买不到任何降价品一直闷闷不乐,晚上就打算好好慰劳一下自己,于是跟妈去了“金盘II”吃饭(我爸是怪人,这种出外吃饭的活动他从不参与的)。

每次去总要点招牌菜芝麻烧饼!还叫了酸辣汤,上海炒年糕,和芝麻鸡翼。Yum Yum Yum~~ 好吃!以前住在 Downtown 的时候觉得这饭店好远啊。哈!现在居然搬到了离它不到10分钟路程的地方住,好耶! 🙂

2007 Black Friday Sale

Standard

I can’t believe this !@#$%^&! I didn’t get anything this year! By the time I got to the stores at around 8:30 AM, everything I wanted was gone!~! They said the stores were opened as early as 4 AM and people who were crazy enough to be there that early witnessed long lines awaiting the doors to be opened! Unbelievable! In the past years I’ve always been able to go later and get something, I guess if the economy’s bad, everybody’s looking for a bargain. But still! I saw a few guys shopping till they’re dropping, literally! Their arms couldn’t hold onto all the stuff they bought, I almost wanted to go up and kick them so they’d drop a couple of the movies and games I wanted and then I could take them away!

Well, who can blame these crazy shoppers?! Some of the deals were really good, like 50% off. Next year I ain’t gonna be tricked! There were some cheap stuff before Thanksgiving, not everything’s waiting until after Thanksgiving, a.k.a. Black Friday, for a price drop. I will be smarter next year! (heh heh, I remember spending Thanksgiving last year in Las Vegas and even though I was away from home, I didn’t give up on the 2006 Black Friday Sale, how crazy was I?!?~)
