take it easy, so life will be

Menyadari bahwa saat ini saya hanya ingin membuat hidup saya terasa lebih fun, maka sayalah yang harus membuatnya seperti itu. It's no kidding, you are what you want, you are what you say, you are what you eat, and you are what you be.

the next next next part 1

You've been hurt by an unhealed pain, in sadness
"I can't smile anymore, I don't like people", don't say those words
A future that can't be seen will occur, there's meaning in that
For right now everything is fine as it is now. Certainly you must notice that the time is coming
Just like someone who's rusty

(UVERworld, D-tecnolife)

About their name, “UVERworld”A combination of “UBER”(meaning “over” in German) and “world” with the concept of wanting to always overcome past obstacles, along with future obstacles coming their way. With hopes to share with the world and create a powerful outlook on life, hopes that someday this philosophy can change the world. UBERWORLD became UVERworld adding character and a twist.

Okay... I AM AMAZED! totally! They got best ranks in Oricon Chart like many many many times!!!!! It really shows how great their music and I don't regret to put them as my favorite Japanese band!

I never forget the very first time I heard their song which is D-tecnolife as the OST of Bleach anime (I borrowed the DVD coincidentally from my junior). And first time I heard the song, I fell in love, with the music, and the vocal! Damn it's directly touch my heart! Even though I didn't get the Japanese lyrics at first, but I know from the music and the vocal that the song bring the spirit in the heart !

Like once I ever posted about Monkey Majik , UVERworld is now also be my favorite Japanese music band! So the list is rising, for Japanese music, I love Monkey Majik for sure, UVERworld, DEPAPEPE, and YUI!!! They're the best I ever know! Oh, yeah, don't forget I also admire Kajiura Yuki for her enchanted music composing!

Recently I watched UVERworld concert video at Tokyo Dome as their Last Tour in 2010. And those videos are so... damn... GREAT!!!! Whoa! The stage was also a blast! I wish I could have watch such concert in my lifetime..

Actually, the reason why I put this blog title 'the next next next' is because I refer it to somekind of 'next generation'. I'm telling this because, to see how UVERworld really making many hits and most of their songs are contributed to many anime titles, reminds me a lot with musicians the past which also experienced the same thing: L'arc-en-ciel and TM Revolution :)

Not that I say UVERworld is copying TMR or Laruku's thing (their musics are also different! Even though they're great in different ways), it's because they got similarities:
They contribute songs to many anime titles
They got characteristical vocals
Their musics are great, and they sing emotionally
(but I have to emphasize that their music styles are really different, you'll understand if you watch and compare them)

But... it makes me happy that the era is back again, the era of a really great band, really influential band (you should watch UVERworld Tokyo Dome concert), which contributes songs to many great anime titles! See? As anime lover, I really thing that UVERworld had done really great thing by that! Perfectly famous in perfect way! *LOL

They're the next generation of great influential band with great songs for anime OST, the next Laruku & TM Revolution! You better watch out because they're like replacing your place :D hahaha. They steal attentions! Of course all of these are just my personal opinion, nothing more :p

Oyeah, since nowadays I don't update my blog posts, I have to say it's all because the dead of my internet connection for the past 2 weeks, and finally now the internet is fixed and I can start updating my blog post again. Yay!

And, fyi, because of the internet died last few days, I just doing some doodling on my laptop, and guess what? This is one of my doodling result with paint:

Yeah, it is TAKUYA∞ the vocal of UVERworld. He has characteristical voice which make you think "Ah, I know this is UVERworld from the vocal".

Hahaha, but this picture isn't even close to his appearance, I only draw this based on his look at Tokyo Dome 2010 concert, and for real, he didn't wear vest at that concert *LOL.

Still, I think this drawing is cute, hahahaha.

"Feelings continuously filled with wishes will someday change colors",
that's what I've been taught
To be a person who continues to live with this in the heart
Because Colors are born within anything and everything inevitable
I will paint tomorrow once more with these hands

(UVERworld - Colors of the Heart)
