|Seo Taiji - remixes
||[29 Nov 2007|12:57pm]
Two new remixes from Seo Taiji's 15th Anniversary box set. The two songs are "‘07 Gyosil Idea (Remix)" (Which is my favorite of the two because, oh, my God, he totally outdid himself with this. *was absolutely blown away*) and "'07 COME BACK HOME (Remix)" ("'07 COME BACK HOME (Remix)" starts out with this freaking awesome heavy industrial sound, and... wow).

Taichi Saotome (早乙女太)
Bio stuff here.
Summary: .... so. :D I would like to introduce you all to Taichi Saotome, who was first introduced to me in such a way:
Kelsey: .... :D?
me: ... she's pretty. :o
Kelsey: It's a guy. >D
me: .................. DUDE LOOKS LIKE A LADY!!!
And thus, my :o-ness with Taichi began. (Mainly because I had been immersed in the Japanese culture for so long, I didn't hit-and-miss of male vs. female anymore. I was intrigued. XD) So upon further investigation and through chatting with Kelsey for more info, I discovered that he plays an 'onnagata,' which in traditional Japanese theatre means that he's a male who takes on the female roles. And... dude. He's really, really, really pretty. XDXD And to make things even better? He makes an adorable boy. :3 ♥
So, as I was saying before I got all link happy... XD Taichi is a performer in a Japanese theatre. There's a lot more detail in the bio link that I gave to you guys, so if you truly are interested in seeing and learning more, definitely check it out! If you still aren't completely convinced, well... I have a couple of YouTube video links for you. :D
(Second video is more like a fanvideo, so... he doesn't necessarily go with the music, but you can still see him in action! :Dv)
Anyway, in regards to the download links--the first download, 15 sai, is actually his DVD. It has some performances on it, some interviews, opens with him performing some dances in his onnagata role. And then there are some backstage clips and he's just generally adorable. (Seriously, people. He's fluffy. Love him~ ♥) The second set of download clips are from his site. Anyone can snag them, and I just upped them to MU so that you guys can hopefully download them a bit quicker than the site's bitrate. They're .wmv files and the quality is a bit lower because it looks like they're from recording that was a bit shoddy, but... hey. Free clips and you get to see him in action! He dances as an onnagata, in kimono, to Metallica. Please at least try that clip out. :D?
And, finally, rules for the download links: Feel free to snag the links to share the Taichi adoration, but give credit back to me and this post. I ripped this DVD specifically for my use and for Kelsey's use. If I find out that you guys are claiming that the rip is yours, I will track you down and there will be hell to pay. >\ Most of you guys know that Japanese hard-to-get DVDs don't come cheap. So don't do it.
Other than that, enjoy the pretty. ♥

I ended up doing this as a favor for my friend. She wanted to have NEWS' Never Ending Wonderful Story converted to iPod format so that she could carry it around with her on her iPod, but... the video was giving her issues, so I converted and uploaded it for her. ^^ Original credits for the subtitled DVD go to newshfan. (If you want to download the non-iPod version of the subtitled concert DVD, check out this tag. Both softsubs and hardsubs are available.) Also, randomly, if anyone is still looking for a really, really nice high quality (raw) version of the DVD, karinberry did one and you can find it here. *pimps* XD
