Beck: Yuki Sakurai

10 04 2007

Greetings everyone! I am back with the Beck Series.. and today, I will introduce Yuki Sakurai and his dubber, Yael Yuzon of Spongecola..

Yuki Sakurai

Yuki Sakurai
Koyuki’s best (and the first true) friend. He’s the first one to talk about music with Yukio, even when he was targeted by some nasty bullies. They meet after Koyuki played a DyBre song in the school’s radio….. (just like in the “Shawshank Redemption”). He joins after the old drummer (Togo-san) quits because he had to help his parents with their family business. His brother (who’s now a baseball player) interested him in playing drums whem Saku was 7.The fourth member to join, he is the drummer, inspired by his brother, and replaces the original drummer of BECK who followed Ryusuke from his original band, Serial Mama.

For those of you who don’t know, Ysmael Yuzon, Yael for short, is the guitarist and vocalist of local Filipino band from Ateneo: Sponge Cola. He wrote most of the English songs from their album Palabas, which show his talent at tapping into the emotions of those who would listen. Fans scream for him and long to hear his voice, but in the end, despite all the fame, he remains a humble and down-to-earth person, which is evident with all the thank yous that pour out from his mouth.For more info about Yael Yuzon, Visit spongecola.com or their wikipedia page.You could also browse around his fanlisting here.

And now for a Beck Song..

Here is Follow Me.. I am sure that you guys will enjoy the beat of the song as much as I did.. ^_^

Follow Me By Maho and Koyuki of Beck
Follow me, Baby, I won’t let you leave if you belive in me.

And I allways set you free from all those yesteryears.

But you don’t know how much I got belive in you.

Verse 1:

I was starring at your sholder shivering,

in such a colder summer breeze.

Meanwile, I wonder why we’re here.

Look for the line between love and friends.

We’ll be twisting ourselfs again.

Verse 2:

I was standing at the the corner on the street,

watching the wheels are turning free,

Waiting to bach up on my feet.
Reading the line between night and day.

I’ll be twisting myself again.





Track Someone by using his/her Mobile Phone!

It only works on GSM cellphone networks, meaning it works here in the Philippines.

Uhm. Remember not to abuse it much. It’s currently on a free service. 🙂

While exploring the net, I accidentally ran to this website.. I found out that it can track someone by using only the mobile number of the person! Although I can notice that it gave a little error,I do believe that its quite accurate.Now, You can continually spy on people. The perfect map system shows it in 2d graphics or normal satellite view. It says that it can only work with GSM cellphone networks making it work here in the Philippines too! .. Remember: We shouldn’t abuse its capabilities ok? Its actually free of service and quite handy. I tried tracking my cellphone with my mobile number and it worked. The picture shown is really clear but it isn’t very detailed ok?.. so..

Beck: Chiba Tsunemi and Taira Yoshiyuki

4 04 2007

Great day to everyone! Today is a good day to give everyone not only one, but two band members of the much awaited Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad! Today, We will meet Chiba and Taira and their voice actors,

Chiba Tsunemi is the main vocalist of the band.He is the key member that Ryusuke needed to put Taira into the band. Compared to Koyuki(voiced by Sam Concepcion), this guy has more punk and rock motivated voice, like most of the band’s songs. He is notable for naming the band after Ryusuke’s dog,Beck.

Taira Yoshiyuki -The first recruited member of BECK, Taira is the bassist, and the most talented band member next to Ryusuke. Little is known about him, and his attitude may sometimes come off as uncaring. He has been seen working as a traffic officer.

The voice actors for Chiba and Taira in the Beck here in the Philippines will be Teddy Corpus of RockSteddy and Raimund Marasigan of The Sandwich.. These two voice actors are trully members of very well known band here in our country. I expect something that will show their potentials and I also hope that these two will give something that makes them pretty deserving for the characters.

Well, Here are pictures of Chiba and Taira:

For the Video or song rather for the day, this is Face

Face by Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad

Large lips in the motion
Trying to keep blaming on
As I say reason I’m late on
Find you turning
Laughing and smiling

Running over sometimes
Feel like you leave me behind
Now you don’t have to mind it
Find you shining
Everyday by day

Sing it up, my sister
In this world which everyone is lonely
Everything will be fine someday

Remember
Playing in a backyard
Hiding myself in garage
Since you never could catch me
Find you crying
Weeping in darkness

Sing it up, my sister
In this world which everyone is lonely
Everything will be fine someday
Some other day

Large lips in the motion
Trying to keep blaming on
As I say reason I’m late on
Find you turning
Laughing and smiling

Sing it up, my sister
In this world which everyone is lonely
Everything will be fine
Some other day

Sing it up, my sister
In this world which everyone is lonely
Everything will be fine someday
Some other day
Some other day

Beck: Ryusuke (Ray) Minami

3 04 2007

beck1.jpg

Yesterday, I introduced Miho Minami and now its time to introduce her big brother, Ray Minami.

Ray avatar Ryusuke (Ray) Minami is the character with a long history in America. He speaks fluent English, and frequently uses both Japanese and English in his conversation. He lives alone in a shack by the fishing pond. His skills and taste in music inspire Koyuki to take up the guitar. His talent in playing the guitar and writing songs is unparalled. The band’s creator, Ryusuke is BECK’s lead guitarist and band leader. A once younger Ryusuke and Eddie Lee stole the Lucille (a very famous guitar named after a woman) from the boot of Syke’s vehicle. This begins a deeper backstory of Ryusuke’s character.

My sources tell me that Rico Blanco of River Maya is going to dub for Ray.Rico Rene Blanco is the current vocalist of Filipino rock band Rivermaya. He started in the band as the chief songwriter and keyboardist. Upon the resignation of guitarist, Perf de Castro, Blanco with other session guitarists took over the guitar part of the band’s next albums. He also sang some of his compositions and a couple of times, has done duets with Bamboo Mañalac, the band’s vocalist and original frontman. After Bamboo left for the USA for personal and family reasons, Blanco took over the leadership of the band and has become the vocalist since and even after member changes. (info from Wiki)

With Rico’s amazing background and lots of experiences in this music industry, I am quite sure that he will be great when it comes to dubbing for Ray and singing Ryusuke’s Songs.

Picture time! Now Ray really has long hair. haha.. While Rico doesn’t..

For the song, Here is Slip Out !

Slip Out (Little More Than Before)

I don’t know since when I changed to such a cold-hearted guy
I have to warm this frozen, icy, lonely heart to thaw
I like being wrapped with warmness more than anything else for sure
I’m gonna make my coming days to be filled with laughter and joy

I let myself down that I’m more cruel than I thought I would be
I’m just a loser who ends up by caring for my soul
I don’t give my heart to no one cause I don’t wanna waste my time
I tried to love this loneliness to slip out of this lonesome hole

Sorrow is what I hate but it’s grown my sensations
Regrets taught me how to make any hard decisions
Peace is always by my side but I’ve never felt it once
Love is not the word only for the sweet romance

Well, I’m scared, scared, scared, scared to death
And I’m scared to keep on going on my way
Well, I’m scared, scared, scared, scared to death
And I’ll tell myself I’m special till the end

Recalling my torn, broken, aching heart of these long days
And all the memories I wanted to forget for making leaps
Recalling, breaking, aching, crying, making sure to me
And I take all and grin at my future on the way

That’s a wrap! Ciao for Now!





Beck: THe Characters

2 04 2007

As what I promised, I will be posting these infos I searched around the web about Beck’s Characters and the dubbers!

As for a fresh start, Let’s meet the lady for Koyuki’s heart,Maho Minami!

Sino ba si Maho Minami? She is Ryusuke’s sister and a talented singer with a strange relationship with Koyuki. At times she seems attracted to him, other times she brushes him off with little regard to his often ignored feelings. She also has a great voice and can sing as well.Maho attends an american school and speaks fluent English. She does not plan to stay in Japan her whole life and can’t even read or write many kanji. She is the first person to believe in Koyuki’s talent and she stands by him whatever may happen.

Who is the voice behind the beautiful Miho Minami? She is no other than Stephanie Cuaves. Not so familiar name ,huh? She is the vampire girl in ABS-CBN’s Super Inggo, yes yes.. Ava Abanico’s Cousin. ^_^

Anyway, here are some pictures of Miho and Stephanie.

And here is Koyuki & Miho’s duet song, Moon On The Water

Moon On The Water lyrics
Full moon sways
Gently in the night of one fine day

On my way
Looking for a moment with my dear

Full moon waves
Slowly on the surface of the lake

You were there
Smiling in my arms for all those years

What a fool
I don’t know ’bout tomorrow
What it’s like to be
Ah…

I was fool
Couldn’t let myself to go
Even though i feel
The end

Old love affair
Floating like a bird resting her wings

You were there
Smiling in my arms for all those years
