[ALEXANDROS] Sleepless in Kuala Lumpur 2019

Successful conclusion of [ALEXANDROS]’s second live in Kuala Lumpur from their concert tour entitled [Sleepless in Kuala Lumpur 2019]. As one of the most popular Japanese rock bands, [ALEXANDROS] held their live on 19th of July at Bentley Music Auditorium. When tickets for the live went on sale on 19th of April, VIP tickets had sold out within a day, with requests for more pouring in daily; a testament to the fervor and passion of the local fans. While [ALEXANDROS] is best known as a band that plays a mixture of alternative and hard rock, they also include elements of pop punk and emo, lending them a contemporary sound that carries a wide appeal. Other than gracing a variety of magazine covers and appearing in commercials, they are also notably known as fashion icons, due to their personal style which has an air of otherworldly aesthetic that also conveys an iconic street rock atmosphere.The English-speaking Japanese band not only wowed the audience with their energetic performances but have also impressed them with their fluency in the English language. With their native English-speaking skill level, they are able to easily engage and converse with the crowd, enabling them to create a comfortable and fun environment with their audience, which no doubt had helped them win over some new fans too.This time, we saw an increase in the number of audiencecomparedto last year, with it being more evident as morefans are seen singing along and rockingout to theband’sstellarperformances. Many of our invited guests had ecstatically shared they now consider themselves as fans too, just after watching [ALEXANDROS] live in action, despite not being familiar with their songs initially.As soon as the show started, asexpected,[ALEXANDROS]’s distinctly ephemeral yet powerful voice resonated well, as they melded to evoke atmospheric and unforgettable music. [ALEXANDROS] treated the audience to some of their best known tracks such as ‘Wataridori’and ‘Ashita,Mata’, but also drew from their larger repertoire as they incorporated their new songs ‘Pray’ and ‘Tsukiiro Horizon’ into the set-list. Particularly noteworthy was the moment when the audience joined in to sing-along to ‘Mosquito Bite’ on que, proving that the local audience did consist of fans who had anticipated for the band’s return to Kuala Lumpur.[ALEXANDROS]also managed to playfully impress the audience with Yoohei’s pepperings of Bahasa Malaysia, as during the emcees he threw in quite a few utterances of ‘Seronok Tak?!’, to the delight of many local fans that were present.As the 2-hour long concert came to an end,it was then followed up by an exclusive meet and greet session. [ALEXANDROS] took the time to hold a ‘hand shake’ session with the fans, a special experience that was limited to VIP ticket holders. Around 100fans shook hands with [ALEXANDROS] and took pictures in groups of ten with the artist. This event proved to be rare opportunity that the fans appeared to truly enjoy, judging from their smiles, overwhelmed expressions and even quite a few excited shrieks!As the band begins to get more recognition overseas, further commended with their growing engagement in movies and dramas, there is no doubt we can now expect an increase again in the number of audience and fans, once the band decides to return in future for their third concert in Kuala Lumpur. [ALEXANDROS] Sleepless in Kuala Lumpur 2019 is organized by Toybox Projects; UKPM (Artist Management); RX-Records (Music Label); Creativeman Productions (Tour Agent); Livemasters Inc. (Tour Producer); Sponsored by KidZania Kuala Lumpur (Venue Partner), EPOP (Official Magazine), M-Town (Official Japanese Paper), Rentak Sejuta (Official Online Media), Selebriti Online (Official Online Media), Aforadio (Official Radio), MTV Asia (Official Music Channel), Oyoshi (Official Tea), Royale Chulan The Curve (Official Hotel), and our F&B partners Mighty Monster(Official Restaurant)andTheCoffee Bean& Tea Leaf(Official Restaurant).In Case you guys miss out the interview Mag had conducted with the boys.

梁靜茹 Fish Leong《我好嗎? - 太陽如常升起》馬來西亞唯一 一場新專輯分享會

總是問候別人好不好,多久沒問過自己一句:「我好嗎?」一歌入魂療癒系情歌本格派梁靜茹 Fish Leong2019 年全新大碟【我好嗎?一太陽如常升起】華語樂壇無人能取代的聲音,情歌天后梁靜茹睽違七年出道二十年的回顧與覺醒實X勇敢2019 梁靜茹「我好嗎?-太陽如常升起」10首歌全導聽希臘德爾菲神廟的阿波羅箴言(Delphic maxims):「認論識你自己」(Know Thyself)亞里斯多德也說:「認識自己是所有智慧的開端」。愛情,則是人生照妖鏡,明暗虛實,周而復始,照出你的本象實我。「我好嗎」?一日苦甜結束了,明天又是新的開始。太陽如常升起,一日一生,愛與生皆永不止息。01.【微光】詞:林珺帆/ 曲: PAN浪漫如螢火蟲微光,經不起經營,也等不來。來了就來了,像兩個人,懶洋洋地,看著有人在吵架的節目,然後你問:「餓了,想吃什麼?」(林理帆)專輯首波單曲。這是第一首選入專輯的歌,很早就定位為這次靜茹。用螢火蟲隱喻愛情的脆弱和稍縱即逝,靜茹幽微的聲音,傳達著她音樂裡永恆的命題。編曲裡有噪音和氛圍電子營造獨特氣息,是靜茹的一次音樂突破。前段靜茹的中音妮妮陳述著無奈的愛情故事,中段的強拍刻畫勉強又虛弱的堅強,到後段的歇斯底里帶著難以言喻的詩意,整首歌聽覺上充滿豐富的層次與情緒,一段將近五分鐘的美妙旅程。02. [我好嗎】詞:黃婷/曲:阿超過去總認為問候對方是最難的,後來才明白,有時候問候自己,需要更大的勇氣。靜茹總像一位溫柔的說書人,在我們内心深處輕輕地哼著,陪伴我們走過那些自己面對的小日子。(阿超)專輯同名主打歌曲。靜茹七年未發專輯 這七年,她在人生裡細緻地用音樂體驗每個一時刻自我反芻。人生有很多疑問,我們總在問候別人好不好,每日為了人生奔忙往前,卻忘記停下來,問問自己:我好嗎?是不是該對自己好一點?這首歌從DEMO 開始,靜茹就非常喜歡旋律,常常帶著它在耳機裡播放,散步於河堤,融入思結緒。歌詞經過多版揀選,最後是與靜茹長期合作的作詞人黃婷、同時也是這張專輯的 A&R(製作企劃),整理出歌者心境,用「我好嗎」這個反問,帶出整張專輯的概念與情緒。情歌總是唱給被愛的、被傷的人聽,但這首《我好嗎〉是要唱給自己聽德,送給每個在感情中受傷的靈魂,情感的風雨飄搖之後,更要珍惜自己。歌詞定案後,靜茹一進配唱間錄音,就悄悄便咽。歌手錄音最怕哭,但靜茹已練就又哽咽又 hold 住情緒把唱完的功力,製作人鍾成虎也巧妙地留下了靜茹真情流露的片段,待聽者自己去發掘。編曲由情歌聖手阿滾(于京延)操刀,前段細膩的鋼琴音鋪陳,慢慢延伸到間奏弦樂的堆疊情緒,引領到悲傷的高潮,再緩緩落下,抑揚頓挫,感人深刻。03.【慢冷】詞:姚若龍/曲:蕭煌奇以前聽梁靜茹的聲音他總是帶給我很多愛,幸福,勇氣。時間的蛻變,現在聽梁靜茹的聲音,讓人感受到,人生沒有什麼是過不去的,可以釋懷,可以包容,可以感恩。也許這是梁靜茹在過去的生活找到的體驗和感悟;所以在這張專輯,用這樣的聲很有感觸。有時候不經意的在某些句子裡面,心裡的内心深處,會被觸動。這就是我心裡的梁靜茹。(蕭煌奇)專輯抒情強打。靜茹一直喜歡藏煌奇的旋律,覺得唱他的旋律時,總能和自己的嗓音水乳交融。因此,這次專輯也邀了兩首蕭煌奇的曲。這首《慢冷〉的歌詞由曾為靜茹打造千萬金曲《分手快樂)、〈會呼吸的痛〉的姚若龍操刀,深刻寫出愛情裡的糾結慘痛。熾熱的愛人,變冷了,而自己卻還陷在裡面出不來。慢冷,比慢熱還慘。在專輯初開案聊概念時,製作團隊的共識是,要做一張「很慘」的專輯。人生很苦閱,愛情中更是常常事與願違,在音樂裡,我們不必再假裝什麼都過得去,就是要盡情發洩。而現階段的靜茹,已經有能力處理人生的各種慘況,當她的聲音唱著很修的故事時,那歌聲中將糾結雲淡風清的能力,其實是最紮實的療癒。04. 【如愛所願】詞:林建良/曲:蕭煌奇愛過痛過糾結過後還能像朋友一樣聊聊天的美好和遺感只有靜茹酸中帶甜 甜中帶淚的聲線能將這樣事過境遷雲淡風輕的心情詮釋得淋漓透徹(林建良)專輯中堪稱最療癒的歌曲。蕭煌奇悠然的旋律,配上知名企劃詞人林建良口語而真情的筆調,完成了這首廣受喜愛的歌曲。在一張以「慘」為主軸的專輯裡,一首淡然調和的歌,顯得更加重要。製作人鍾成虎選擇了最簡單的吉他編曲,讓靜茹的聲音能在悠然的情緒中自由開展,將濃厚的惆恨,唱得雲淡風輕。05.【平行時空】詞:梁靜茹/曲:陳子超當初跟梁靜茹幾次的討論後,便根據靜茹分享的一些心情故事和照片為她量身訂造這首關於思念,憂愁卻又充滿希望的歌。(陳子超)靜茹鮮少文字創作,絕大多數都把對歌曲的意念,交由填詞人來完成,她自己專注在歌藝的表現。但當初拿到子超這個旋律時,她就一直說很有畫面,哼著哼著腦中就有了很多想像。等到編曲完成,靜茹聽著編曲中的開闊氣象,想像一個在宇宙飛行、尋找自我與愛情的概念,隨手寫了一些句子,沒想到越寫越多,竟然就完成了一首歌詞。平常靜茹就有習慣寫一些片段的文字,在微博、臉書、IG上,隨處可見她的創作。這首(平行時空〉的歌詞中,可以看出她心中也有個小文藝的世界,也傳達出她的感情觀:溫柔、堅定、不斷地尋找心目中那個烏托邦,就像青鳥一樣。06.[以你的名字呼喊我】詞:小寒/曲:韋禮安寫這首歌時腦海自然浮現靜茹的聲音因為這個旋律像陡峭的山潤需要内斂、細膩又充滿力量的口氣駕馭才能讓音符像水一般自在地流動我想除了她再沒別人更適合了(韋禮安)韋禮安悠然細微的旋律,邀請到高手小寒來填詞,每個字與音的起伏都密不通風,靜茹唱得很過癮。歌名取自2017 年的知名義大利電影《Call Me By Your Name)(以你的名字呼喚我),也是靜茹很喜歡的電影,看完後感動不已,時時提及。歌詞中說到「愛雖短暫,故事尾端,沒遺憾。夢雖走散,依然璀璨,在夜空靜靜閃。」將青春時那種對愛情的執迷與感懷,寫得淋滴盡致。生命中總有一個人,藏在最底層,曾經你與他的名字,彼此不分。07.[類情人】詞:黃婷/曲:光良一直覺得靜茹的聲音有一種可以讓旋律有靈魂的魔力,想像她唱歌的樣子寫了這首曲。這首歌不需要華麗的編曲,凸顯靜茹最純粹的聲音和堅定的語氣,說盡了男男女女「類情人」的内心世界。(光良)同樣是從大馬來台灣奮鬥的歌手,了解彼此的努力與遭遇的困境,從《勇氣》開始,靜茹就與光良很有緣分。做這張專輯時,回顧過往的音樂路,也想到邀請光良再來為靜茹寫一首歌。為了加快速度,就由作詞人黃婷先完成歌詞,再交給光良譜曲。光良行程滿檔,飛來飛去,原先以為會等很久,沒想到他拿到歌詞,兩天就完成了靜茹一聽就很喜歡旋律。「類情人」是一個新創的名詞,「類似情人一樣」,卻並不是真的情人。顧名思義,是講一種單向的感情關係一方像情人一樣不斷的付出 另一方只當作是一種習慣。靜茹說,她自己沒有過這樣的情感關係,但很多朋友都有。唱這首歌時,腦中就會浮現那些在曖昧情感關係中掙扎的朋友們,為他們心疼。光良用簡單的旋律提煉靜茹的聲音,編曲找來金曲獎最佳編曲人溫奕哲,細膩的鋼琴與vocal 互動,呈現出簡單的力量。08.【太陽如常升起 1】詞:李悼雄/ 曲:鍾成虎太陽如常升起,總有不變的事,對吧?陽光所及的地方的聲音。(李焯雄)這首歌詞只有四句的短歌,提供了專輯聆聽間的呼吸點。就像人生忙碌之中,有時需要暫停下來,想一想接下來往哪裡去。由金曲詞人、也是靜茹的好友的李焯雄,為她寫下四句簡單而有力的歌詞,再交由專輯製作人鍾成虎以吉他譜曲、編曲,畫龍點睛地呈現了專輯副標的精神。09.【子非魚】詞:藍小邪/曲:梁思樺我們都太急著判斷別人快不快樂,而忘了自己快不快樂我們都太急著向別人證明快不快樂,而忘了什麼才是真正的快樂能不能,讓我們就活在自己的小小的水塘裡不管海是怎樣,湖是怎樣,別的水塘又是怎樣不管有誰在岸邊欣賞,不管有沒有人在岸邊欣賞只是如魚得水地遊著自管自的方向,自管自的速度,自管自的喜怒哀樂自管自,就好(藍小邪)本張專輯中少數較輕快的歌曲,也是靜茹輕柔聲線中最擅長的類型之一。歌詞邀來文字創意無限的新銳詞人藍小邪,以莊子名篇「子非魚安知魚之樂」為主軸,巧妙應和靜茹的英文名字與暱稱「Fish」(魚),帶出「你不是魚,怎麼知道魚的快樂?」「你不是我,怎麼知道我不知道魚的快樂」這些詰問,更對應專輯關於「我」的存在意義的主題。10. [完整的我】詞:黃婷/曲:木村充利2000年,為了追求夢想而來台灣,當時最喜歡的歌就是梁靜茹的勇氣。之後也被她溫柔的歌聲安慰過無數次。2019 年,竟然有幸能讓她唱我譜的曲。好想告訴那些年的我,你的挫折,你的眼淚,在未來一切都是值得的。謝謝梁靜茹給了我堅持的勇氣,我的人生已經沒有遺憾。(木村充利) 靜茹的歌者人生與感情經歷,在釋然中帶著繼續面對未來的勇氣,這是一個木村充利從 2012 年寫完,就開始等待靜茹的旋律。專輯 A&R 兼作詞人黃婷在聽到這首歌時,覺得非靜茹莫屬,但當時靜茹還沒有開案的打算,這首歌就一直壓箱等待著,直到這張專輯才面世。歌詞的琢磨歷經很長時間。在專輯大部分歌詞都完成之後,確認需要一首與靜茹自身領悟十分貼近的歌曲,於是黃婷在與靜茹無數次深夜聊天之後,抓住了她每次站在舞台上的心境:「不管唱到哪裡,儘管眼前千萬隻手的揮舞,心中都還是留著一個位置,給一個人。」這首歌也成為專輯完美的收尾:我們終其一生在追尋自我,在孤獨與寂寞中掙爭扎,但或許最後我們會發現:其實是另一個靈魂,完整了自己。我們以為是在找自己,其實,也是在找那一個,會完整自己的靈魂。這,就是愛情吧。

G-Shock Seven Lucky Gods Fukurokuju (GBD-800SLG-3DR)

The final 7th timepiece in the the seven Lucky Gods series, the Fukurokuju model takes its base inspiration from the GBD-800 model of the G-Shock line, G-Squad. With a basic light green colour and patterns symbolic of pine tress,  bamboo and Japanese plum trees, the Fukurokuju also features the crane tortoise, an animal that herald  good fortune. The EL backlight of each model in the series depicts a stylized kanji-like letter or hyphen that spells out “G-SHOCK”. The Fukurokuju model will feature a “K”, the last letter of “G-SHOCK”, thus completing the Seven Lucky Gods G-SHOCK collection series. The GBD-800SLG-3DR Fukurokuju model is now available at all G-Factory store and is retailing at RM579.Fukurokuju is the God that deified in Taoism of China, Soh. A long head, a long beard and big lobes are characteristics and always with a crane and a tortoise. As the name of “Wealth: 福 (fuku)”, “Allowance:禄 (roku)” and “Long Life: 寿 (ju)” shows, he will bring a happiness, a fortune and a long life. There is a case to identify him with Jurōjin.About the designThe design shows a scene around the time of the lunar New Year in Japan, where a child engaged in freestyle BMX biking is spinning around when Fukurokuju appears from the sky. Evoking the showy atmosphere of the New Year, some children are flying a kite and stones and precious jewels appear to grow from a tortoise’s shell, which also supports pine, bamboo, and plum, altogether creating a celebratory scene. The three marks brought together in the pattern represent the fuku, roku, and ju characters from the god’s name, and these three marks also appear on the watch strap keeper. The clothing worn by the boy riding the BMX bike is fashioned after a tortoise shell, and is inlaid with the letter “G” from “G-SHOCK”.About the Fukurokuju modelThe Fukurokuju model, seventh in the series, takes its base inspiration from the GBD- 800 model from the G-SHOCK sports line, G-SQUAD. The basic color is light green. The pattern on the band brings pine trees, bamboo, and Japanese plum trees together with the crane and tortoise, animals that herald good fortune. The watch strap keeper features three marks that represent the three Chinese characters in the god’s name, “Wealth: 福 (fuku)”, “Allowance: 禄 (roku)” and “Long Life: 寿 (ju)”, to create a vivid design.

Malaysia International Film Festival And FINAS Malaysia Have Partnered Together To Hold A Series Of Film Symposiums

The discussion topics of this year’s film symposiums are immensely compelling. Among them are ‘How Hindi Movies Resonate With World Audience,’ ‘Cultural Diversity In Films,’ ‘How Asian Movies Resonate With Western Audience,’ ‘Local Flavor, International Tastes,’ and ‘How I Tell Story Through The Lenses.’Through the discussion on ‘How Hindi Movies Resonate With World Audience’, Rajkumar Hirani will share the value of Bollywood films in the international film industry and his approach to directing.

「我的青春都是你」- Love The Way You Are

「我的青春都是你」那你呢?mm2 Malaysia發行,青春搞笑愛情電影《我的青春都是你》約定6約27日全馬上映,由偶像劇教母柴智屏攜手億萬票房導演馮凱一起監製,電影大膽採用兩位新銳90後導演周彤和代夢穎執導,演員陣容有少女代言人宋芸樺、新一代國民校草宋威龍、林妍柔、黃俊捷等高實力、高顏值組合。《我的青春都是你》故事講述青梅竹馬學渣周林林(宋芸樺 飾)一直活在“隔壁家的孩子”學霸方予可(宋威龍 飾)的陰影之下。原本希望高考結束之後可以分道揚鑣,沒想到兩人卻一起考進全國最高學府裡最冷門的科系,周林林始終逃不過與方予可當同窗的命運,一場陽光甜蜜酸酸甜甜的青春戀愛就此上映。畢業就是分手?不,小雙宋CP幫你彌補遺憾!女主的漂亮逆襲見慣不慣,但男主從醜小鴨變成男神的非一般青春荷爾蒙,一定很少見。新一代國民校草宋威龍在電影裡犧牲很大,頂著鍋蓋頭,大鋼牙,黑框眼鏡、格子襯衫搭背帶褲,十分中二的少年,完全顛覆男神形象。當他逆襲成功,顏值爆表的學霸男神外型,一秒虜獲不少迷妹,再加上對宋芸樺的寵溺,更讓宋威龍成為新晉“模範男友”,撩倒一大片少女心。對於電影中的青春暗戀,監製柴智屏傳授自身經驗表示,青春時期很多暗戀過的人都匆錯過,第一是當時太年輕,第二是很多人對自己沒自信,“大家應該主動勇敢去愛,碰到值得珍惜的人不要猶豫,不要怕受傷”。電影主題曲是五月天2011年的那首《我不愿让你一个人》及蘇打綠2009年的《他夏了夏天》;就是那個擦身而過的青春,我的青春都是你,我不願讓你一個人過。此外,配合電影發起的 “我的青春Challenge” ,在網絡上獲得一大票網友響應,紛紛上傳自己的青春對比照;“我的青春Challenge”呼籲大家在社交平台上載一張“自己嚮往的青春照”對比“自己的青春照”,再 hashtag #我的青春challenge 和 #我的青春都是你 ;你上傳了你的青春嗎?6月27日,希望看了《我的青春都是你》後,無論你是不負青春或辜負青春,請你可以勇敢、不負青春、不負所愛、大聲地告訴TA,“我的青春都是你”。欲知更多有關電影的詳情,請留守mm2 Malaysia的官方面子書: https://www.facebook.com/mm2malaysia ,
