Dance with the Devil

from the album Synchestra (2006)

Required Halloween viewing, as far as I’m concerned. Yes, this is the actual music video.

[ Song of the Week ] Prince & The New Power Generation – “7”

from the album undefined (1992)

I was listening to this song again recently, and I remembered how much I liked it. This was a fairly popular song back when it was released, but over time, it seems that most people forgot that Prince released anything after 1989, and there was still some good stuff to be found in those years.

Death and Rebirth

Hard to believe my rewatch of Sailor Moon S is already over. It seems like I just started it! I had forgotten lots of the details, but not the overall story arc. It’s still my favorite season of the series, even not having seen Sailor Stars yet. Sailor Moon S is one complete story arc, though split roughly in half, with Hotaru’s introduction marking the changing point.

Sailor Moon S was also very prophetic for me. I didn’t know who Kunihiko Ikuhara was when I watched the series for the very first time all those years ago, but he was the series director for Sailor Moon S. After one more season of Sailor Moon, Ikuhara went on to become part of Be-Papas and create a little series called Revolutionary Girl Utena

[ Song of the Week ] Perfume – “FUSION”

from the album Future Pop (2018)

Kraftwerk meets Nine Inch Nails by way of idol J-Pop? Prepare for aural amazement with the intense electronic sounds of “FUSION”. Your perceptions of J-Pop might be challenged by this song. 🙂

While not a music video per se, this clip featuring the song is a unique presentation by the three members of the group, each on a different continent, yet performing live “together”.
