21'st Century Fable

Starting in April, the special effects jidaigeki (period drama) "Daimajin" that was hugely popular back in 1966 will make its revival as a TV series on TV Tokyo. The late-night dorama will be called "Daimajin Kanon" and had 1 billion yen ($11,000,000) for its creation, an extraordinarily huge budget for a dorama of that time slot. Heroine of the new series will be the female college student Rikuna Yuka (21) who got selected among 1000 other young women who auditioned for that role.

44 years ago Daimajin was the hero of the baby boom generation and today many people still know that giant statue. The originally trilogy was set during the Warring States period of Japan. Daimajin is a giant statue of a god of war that comes to life when singing a prayer for it and punishes all the bad guys. The transformation from the gentle expression of the idol to that of a vengeful feudal warrior was all the craze among children in the 1960s. Nowadays you can still find Daimajin on pachinko machines and stuff like that.

The new series is going to play in a modern era full of bad people. This time the heroine will be a college student called Kanon who keeps on singing prayers that awake the giant god of war. Once again Daimajin will have to deal with a lot of bad guys.

The production for the series ended in December. They spent a total of 7 months filming and consumed over 1 billion yen to recreate Daimajin with state-of-the-art special effects. An ordinary late-night dorama has a small budget of like 7,000,000 yen ($78,000) per episode, but this 26-episode-long epic series had almost fourfold the amount.

In the movies former big actresses like Takada Miwa (63) and Fujimura Shiho (71) played the heroine. This time they held an audition to find the perfect new heroine. More than 1000 young women and girls applied for the role and Rikuna came out as the winner. The series is a real classic, so the expectations and chances for her to follow the footsteps of the former heroines are very high.

"In the dorama Kanon is able to experience personal growth despite the coldhearted and painful life in the city. Just like her I was able to learn a lot during the filming and think that I grew up a bit myself." She looked back at the filming.

The dorama won’t be just another silly daikaiju (giant monster) series for children. It aims for a mature audience and airs only at 1:23 in the morning. The producer about the series, "Just like the original it has the message that righteous life should be rewarded. Many people these days know what it means to love someone with your heart and mind and it’s them who are going to enjoy this series."

The uplifting Housey pianos and crisp, punchy beats of Marius’s

Marius, who made his first waves as a Hot new belgian producer on Prins Thomas’s Full Pupp label, got a fantastic response with his debut EP on Maxi Discs `Disco Drummer’. That release was supported by a wide spectrum of DJ’s such as Ashley Beedle, Prins Thomas, Mark E, The Revenge, and Faze Action. With its nostalgic, yet forward looking blend of classic NY House and disco elements, the Marius sound is very much what Maxi Discs is all about. On this new release, Ray Mang remixes the uplifting Housey pianos and crisp, punchy beats of Marius’s original version of `Jet Set’ and hits the full on Loft Party button to peak this acidic building remix in true Mangled style! Also look out for Marius’s `Jet Set’ LP, which will be dropping later in 2010 and for more fantastic music and top remixes to follow on Maxi Discs..

Just Be good to mee...

producer Graeme Clark aka The Revenge serves up a disco makeover of SOS Band’s Alltime Classic: ‘Just Be Good To Me’. Calling on the vocal talents of Danielle Moore, Graeme maintains his trademark production style, and keeps it slow and sexy with a BPM count that barely sneaks into 3 digits. The Revenge himself delivers an epic dub mix that clocks in at just under 10 minutes. And Ron Basejam aka James Baron delivers a funk-infused remix that ups the tempo a bit..

Karas...Colorful lollipop Anime..

I was watching this anime lately,i just got the dvd..it's produced by tatsunoko for celebrating their 40th anniversary..Tatsunoko was known as a studio that brought classic heroes anime like casshern,gatchaman,Polimar,yatterman and much more..
The Japanese episodes initially broadcasted in pay per view channel from March 25 2005 until August 3,2007.But now u can get it on dvd as six single dvd pack..

The story itself took place in Shinjuku..it's looks like Gotham city in Batman a bit dark and gloomy atmosfear..

In the Shinjuku ward of Tokyo, humans unknowingly live side by side with spirits and other apparitions, who exist in a dimension parallel to our own. But the balance is being upset by the Mikura, demons who have taken physical form and must then kill to survive. Only Karas, the shadowy guardian crow of the city, can stop the Mikura and maintain the balance with the help of the mysterious Yurine. But the Mikura are being led by Eko, a former Karas who has turned his back on humanity and aims to destroy everything. Can Otoha, Yurine's newly recruited Karas, stop the renegade and his forces, without drawing attention from the locals, police and others with their own agenda?

This OVA (Original Video Animation to you non-otaku), is the 40th anniversary project of Tatsunoko Productions, the folks who gave us Speed Racer and Gatchaman (better known to Americans as "Battle of the Planets"). The show is very reminiscent of the latter, old style Japanese superhero shows from the '70s (think "Power Rangers" and you'll have an idea of what I mean). There's a hero who transforms into his powered-up persona with a special device, a mysterious guide/aide who knows more than she should, a badass villain with a small army of monsters/henchmen... the list goes on and on.
The animation is a mix of 2-D and CGI animation, which really helps bring about some incredible visual effects and Matrix-style camera angles. This really helps the fight scenes, as Karas and the Mikura are done by CGI. Sure, you can tell the difference, but it still looks incredible. It goes to show how far we've come with using CGI in animation production, creating visuals that could never be done before with traditional animation.
if u cant get the dvd u can watch it in here for free

6th Borough Project bunker kicking off with the supa dupa slo mo

it's been a long time that im not write in my blog..now im back..with  6th borough project 

Craigs DJ career has been on the go for fully 20 years, from his own famous night, ‘Audio Deluxe’ to numerous gigs at every major club across the globe. His 10 year residency at The Honeycomb in Edinburgh saw him play, host and gain the respect of all the players on the dance music scene. Guests at his club nights have included: Masters At Work - Kenny “Dope” Gonzalez and Lil’ Louie Vega, Terry Hunter, Phil Asher, John “Jellybean” Benitez, Bugz In The Attic, Domu, Mr V, Paul ‘Trouble’ Anderson, DJ Deep, Osunlade, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Teddy Douglas, Dave Camacho, Ashley Beadle, Kenny Carpenter, Kerri Chandler, Frankie Feliciano, DJ Spinna - all of whom have rated Craig’s parties as one of the best to play in Europe. Always listening to, and collecting music as a kid, Craig started searching out club nights that would quench his musical thirst, and in the early 80’s it was parties like the capital’s Manifesto that really inspired and turned him on to a fresh and exciting scene that none of his school friends were even aware of. A stalwart on the scene from a young age this eventually lead him to make his DJ’ing debut in 1987 at Edinburgh’s legendary club night The Hooch. His initial influences were boogie, jazz funk, soul and the emerging sounds of rap and house and for him it was a natural progression into the modern production techniques and sounds of dance music. He is known for his non-compromising attitude for the music he loves and has always refused to be categorised preferring to be known for playing “quality dance music”. This has lead to an impeccable international reputation with gigs and radio appearances worldwide, and in his own hometown he is notorious as Irvine Welsh’s favourite DJ with a mention in his books. So far all of Craig’s recording work has been met with great critical acclaim. He has had records out on various labels such as EMI, Virgin, Hush Hush, In Demand, Maxi, Five20East and Soul Heaven under his own name and various guises, such as Harden Soul Project, The Wayfarers, The Soul Renegades and The Shaw Height Assembly and more recently 6th Borough Project. He has remixed tracks for the likes of Cevin Fisher, Roland Clark, Afro Medusa, Beverly Knight, Soul Providers, Moloko, and the Hong Kong Micros amongst others. Currently working on new music with production partner Graeme Clark (The Revenge) on their popular 6th Borough Project and Craig Smith & The Revenge guises, recent releases/remixes on Five20east, Soul Heaven and Jimpsters new label Delusions Of Granduer (as Craig Smith & The Revenge) and Jisco, Less Productions, Instruments of Rapture, Soul Heaven (as 6th Borough Project) have been gaining mad props/ radio/club play from such heavy hitters as Kenny Dope, Giles Peterson, Simbad, Karizma, Jimpster, Terry Hunter, Danny Krivit, Chris Duckenfield, Joe Clausell, Quinten Harris, Phil Asher, Todd Terje, Mad Matts and a host of others! Keep your eyes peeled as there are more tracks on the way with forthcoming releases on Soul Heaven, Instruments of Rapture, Freerange, Future Classics and Delusions Of Grandeur Craig has also been busy in the studio with Ricky Reid as they breath new life into the Soul Renegades production moniker. This exciting project has being gaining serious attention from the get go and with their debut release out now on the much respected Phil Ashers Restless Soul Music gaining heavy praise and with futher releases due on UK label Fresh Minute, US deep house don Anthony Nicholson ‘s Circular Motion imprint and a Stephanie Cooke remix for Soulful Beats ready to follow the future looks rosy

so this is their late ep part five Hope u all like it...
