Merry Christmas! おべでとクリスマス!

Merry Christmas my Magicians! Here's a little present for you - a playlist of some of my favorite songs to listen to during the holidays. Some songs are not necessarily Christmas music but they still have the flavor of the season. Enjoy the cheer and peace and goodwill to all! :)

DJ MK's Throwback - Puffy AmiYumi

While on the way back from last minute Christmas shopping, the chorus from a Puffy AmiYumi song played in my head. I wanted to play it while in the car but I couldn't remember the name of the song and my phone was being used as a GPS so I couldn't look it up right away.
I knew that the song had a Christmas feel despite it not being a Christmas song. All I remembered was that the song ended on the word shiawase de.
So I looked up Shiawase and the song didn't sound quite right. But in the relevant searches, I saw the song December. While it was a leap of faith, considering the sound I gave it a shot.

Sure enough, it was the right one. :)
Puffy has enchanted my childhood and musical experiences. I'm surprised that I haven't played any of their songs on the MK Show but that's gonna change Season 3.

So as a little throwback to childhood and great music, here is December for everybody to enjoy. No matter what faith you have or even if you consider this time a celebratory time, I hope 2014 was sweet to you and here's to 2015.

Fun Friday - DJ MK's special announcement!

A little magician's apprentice flew into my life yesterday. My nephew was born while I was in transit from Orlando to Gainesville. I'm looking forward to spending some quality time with him this holiday.
If you weren't able to listen last week, the Mahou Kunoichi Show will be on hiatus on The Basement until February. There will be a new timeslot as well and it'll be announced here on my blog. However, I will still be blogging here as well as setting up a platform on Mixlr so that you can get good music and nerdy talks anytime and anywhere.
I hope everybody's having a good holiday season so far. Peace and goodwill to all!

Training Wednesday - Version Français

Bonjour mes chers sorciers!
I've got a little announcement for you. I just got done with my French 107 course and I really want to improve my skills with you. I've noticed that a lot of my readers (and most hardcore otaku, gamers, and even gaming itself!) have come from France and Canada. So I've decided to start up Mahou Kunoichi Version Français.

My French language is still rather elementary so rather than do the full fledged reviews and discussions right away, VF is going to have completely original content and it'll start off with a more letter-like format. Once I get more comfortable with the language, it'll follow more along the lines of VO's format. I may even do some translation work of my past posts!

VF will be updated once a week. If you also want to help me out with my French adventure, comment below and we can work together!

I'm looking forward to exploring this new horizon with you. I hope you have fun and enjoy the new page coming soon on Mahou Kunoichi!

Interest Monday - Karaoke

Hi my Fellow Magicians!
Hope your holiday weekend was stellar! I'm in the middle of a really stressful but fun sci-fi history paper for school. Sorry for missing out on writing three times a week. But I'm back on schedule and I'll make sure to keep it that way!

Before I got my second and third loves - video gaming and movies, there was my first love: music. I always imagined that I'd be a singer someday and that dream doesn't feel too distant whenever I have a few shots to go to an open-mic karaoke event. My first solo was Unbreak My Heart by Toni Braxton, I've performed in choirs since I was 4 and I am very picky when it comes to my karaoke tracks because I want them to sound as close to the original track as possible and it's frustrating to try to and find one that comes with backing vocals!
