How NOT to treat an infant: Pt. 1

Sita-Ji, Apunbindaas and I have all commented on certain fight scenes that involve small children, and how NOT to treat them.  Here is another example taken during the Telugu film “Bunny”:

We start off well enough. This is a good example.

American Movie Review: Resident Evil Afterlife

Where do I begin?  I had so many thoughts about this film on my way home and when I signed on to twitter I almost blurt them all out, but reserved myself, only to forget most of it now. First off, I was interested in seeing Mika Nakashima. I’d heard that she’s the first of the infected shown in the film, therefore, she obviously dies quickly in story line.  She may have only been in the movie for 1 minute or so, but OH, what a minute!  Since I saw it in 3D, the SUPER long pan of her in the rainy Shibuya crossing was beautiful and then:

Did you know?

That EDC is back, bitches?  Oh, man, this made my week. I found out his blog has been re-instated and he’s been posting since November.  I’m so happy.  I’ve always loved and supported Edison, even when other condemned him, or I’ve had people look down on me for being a fan, I never cared.  He’s funny and charismatic, not to mention highly talented in creating great clothing and fun toys.  One day, I’ll be able to afford something of his.  For now, I’ll be satisfied checking his blog each day and being quietly entertained.  Hopefully, there is a cd in the works.  Did you know he was in The Dark Knight?  That was the biggest surprise to me, since it wasn’t reported or put out there at all.  I was watching it and did a double take thinking “Was that EDC?” Rewind. Pause. Yes, yes it was!  That was pretty much all I saw or heard about him in the last three years which really made me sad. Things that happened weren’t his fault and it wasn’t something he asked for, but he had the guts to face people and take the blame.  But, I just think having to leave for so long was too tough of a punishment. I just hope he took the time “off” to regroup and that he comes back stronger than ever.  From the looks of the product coming out of CLOT these days, he might just be starting to do that.  Stay tuned, and I’ll keep you updated! Or you can check him out for yourself: Here!

EDC is back!


I feel like I’ve been neglecting my child here on Daydreaming Lotus. But, alas, I still have no internet at home.  I am planning to change that before September when Rains’ new drama is due out, so I can watch him in the comfort of my own home.  I also plan on purchasing a new computer that will make things a lot easier as my current one is dying.  Until then folks – hang in there!  I have plans of starting a podcast, regular reviews with optional downloads and more fun goodies (I have a pile of things that are growing for good give-aways) Until then, hopefully the few people who read my blog stand-by!

Random promotion: Asian Pop Addict

Ok, so little while back, I stumbled across this random podcast.  It’s from three girls in Miami doing their thing and just loving (or hating) Asian pop culture.  Sweet.  Not only are they well informed (do they really get to live with all the current news they keep up with, or do they have the internet streaming in front of their eyes all the time?), they have great personalities and are open minded.  I’ve only been able to catch a few episodes, but I plan on starting from the beginning.  I kind of feel like they’re my friends even though we haven’t met (yet.)  The basics of the show are pretty simple, the three of them get together and talk K-Pop and J-Pop news (a few bits from China are thrown in and this last week there was a little Bollywood love thrown in there ((Yay)), teach you a few phrases in Korean and jam down to some music.  If you’re looking for a way to stay connected to the Asian pop scene and don’t have the time to always be searching for news, this might be the way for you.  The shows are a little on the long side, about 3-4 hours or so, but it’s great fun.  I listen while I’m at work, and since I can have my iPod on all day they help the days go by a lot faster.  Check them out!

DBSK – is this the end?

In light of their recent lawsuits, the great Dong Ban Shin Ki (DBSK/TVSQ/Whatever you like to call them) have halted ALL their group activities.  I think this is sad.  While, I can only point out and name one of the members, I do have all of their albums and am a fan of theirs.  They have amazing voices and can harmonize like nobodies business.  I find it disappointing that the contract with their producers/managers are causing the group to suffer and their fans along with them.  I love Korea and all their amazing musicians, what I don’t like are the horrible contracts they are forced to work under and the conditions that they have to put up with.  The word is that it’s just temporary, but the break that N’Sync took years ago turned into an un-official break-up.  I just hope that this doesn’t have to DBSK.   For more info check out this.
