It might not be just a coincidence they're released on the same day. They're both great and I guess they make the best pop album for this year in JP and US. 6Aers can enjoy Perfume's one on my iTunes share if you're on the wireless network :)
This videoclip by Perfume is so awesome. Can't wait for their new album next Wednesday.
Now I actually ordered the CD (the first compact disc I buy in this 5 years or so ...) from Amazon.co.jp! It comes with a live DVD for $45 including $20 shipping fee. Paid by my Amazon gift card so there was no payment at all though.
Thinking of going to Paris the weekend after the next (April 24-28). And here's the first candidate flight from Kayak.com. It's freaking cheap $670 deal so I'd love to take it, but it's 37 minute layover in ORD, switching aircrafts. Is that really possible? There are other flights connecting in Dulles and they have 1.5-2 hours layover, and will arrive at 7am in Paris (ugh).
Casio EX-F1 does 1200fps slow motion movie as you can see on this movie. It's a digital camera (not DSLR) but can also do 1080p/60fps or 720p/30fps HD video recording as well. Available with $999 in US stores. Hmm, i want it.
Code Geass is one of my favoite Anime series currently on the air. This Sunday the 2nd season started and I was impressed by the astonishing HD video quality of it (though the anti-piracy message embedded in the opening was quite annoying and spoiled the episode). There was also an announcement of making the series available in Blu-ray.
Since Blu-ray region code is shared in USA/JPN it's a good movement, but the pricing is, as always, problematic. The Blu-ray version costs $70 per 3 episodes, so it's eventually $700 for a whole season. That's just simply ridiculous. Most of us can't afford that price. It's a mistake.
Bandai, I'd love you to make H264 720p DRM-free movie files available for downloads, and I'll pay $3/episodes or $70 for the season. You can do that with almost no cost, because P2P can solve the bandwidth problem, and you don't need to care about DRM because we can always pirate DRM-free version, and uploading copyrighted materials is illegal per Japanese law anyway, regardless of the files are DRMed or not.
Went to The Starting Line show last night at Slim's. I really love their songs "Up and Go", "Leaving", "Greg's Last Day" and "Best of Me" and they played them all! The club was really crowded and full of youngsters. Last.fm tells me that I was probably the oldest there :)
