Jason Mraz

Again, a week passed by from the last posting. I'm just so amazed by the fact that how fast time goes by. I only have 2 weeks before my new semester starts. It's gonna be an interesting semester for sure. But again, my philosophy is " work hard, study hard, and play harder!" so I'll be still checking out more shows and new bands in this fall. I'm planning to see the Sounds in the Sep and V-fest on this weekend. I can't wait to see The Rural Alberta Advantage again as well as Franz Ferdinand.

Anyhow, I went to see the Jason Mraz's show on last Saturday. umm, oh wait 2 weeks ago from now ( Geez, again told you how fast time goes by..) I went there with a bunch of my friends. I think I was the biggest fan of Jason Mraz among us. I just love him so much. A lot of people told me that when it comes to his songs, it all sounds like cheesy love songs. I guess it is because his newest songs, including " I'm your" and "Lucky". they are indeed beautiful songs. But i love him not only these songs, but also other songs like "Life is beautiful" "Details in a fabric" which has more deeper themes and very dark.

Anyways, I don't remember anything about the opening bands. All I remember is the bassist from the second band was Amazing! omg! he was pretty good despite the fact that the singer wasn't anything new and all the songs sounded the same. During one song, he was playing the bass at first and switched to different instrument and did his solo. it was amazing.

Jason mraz's show was amazing. What I love about him during the show was the arrange of songs. Even though I know most of his songs from the CDs, I can't tell which song he was gonna play because he changed the arrange of the songs so much. once my friend asked me which song it was at the beginning of the song, and i was like,,, shit! lol I couldn't tell. but it was " the Remedy" He changed it to something totally different. the famous pop song got transformed to a Casa nova song.

he is very good in live too. his voice is so splendid and strong. his back band was amazing.

I found a video from the show which my friend has posted on his facebook. Enjoy.

oh, one more thing, somehow, I think Jason thought we as in Toronto speak French, he was staying " Merci" to the audience lol

(500) days of summer

No postings for 2 weeks… or 3 weeks.. Yes, I do have lots of excuses… My work was busy, the summer school is over and I just had a final exam last night. I went out too much. My PC broke down and got a new one, but it had been acting weird and had to bring back it to the store and fix it.
Anyhow, I went to see the live show 2 weeks ago and I saw The Rural Alberta Advantage. I was gonna write about it. But I guess ill not write about it for now. I think I have a chance to see them again in the end of this month for the V-fest, so I’ll write about it later. But I gotta say it was such an amazing show. The legendry Horse Shoes was PACKED. One of my friends told me that he was gonna be there, yet, the tickets was all sold out and he couldn’t even get in. I love the drummer the best. He is so talented.
What I wanna talk this time is the movie that I watched 2 weeks ago. It is called (500) days of summer. I went to watch the movie because the show that I was about to go was cancelled. I was gonna see Bad Veins. Yet, I was so excited to see the movie.

What I really liked about the movie was the music. Of course, they used lots of good songs from the Smiths, Feist, and so forth. The movie is funny and cute, yet, it is more realistic. I loved the concept of the movie. (500) days.. Umm, I’m not gonna write all the details because I know some of my friends still wanna see it. I had to buy the soundtrack right after the movie. That’s how much I enjoyed the movie and the music.
I posted a couple of videos, I hope you guys are interested and see it
