One of my new favorites is a rock band called Fire TIger! I love their energy, their vocals, and just about everything about this band. This is the kind of music I love to music: electrifying classic/power rock.
I recently had an interview via email with the band singer, Tiff. Check out the interview below the cut as well as my favorite song by the band and their latest release.
I am trying to get back to blogging after two weeks of being here and there. Just needed to catch up on sleep this weekend and had to prepare for the new school year, which starts tomorrow!
I really enjoy participating in the Song Lyrics Sunday challenge two weeks ago. So, I am going to try to continue this every week! This week theme is “Burn/Fire/Flame,” as suggested by the host Jim at A Unique Title For Me, with this post.
It’s finally April! I am done with the play that I was involved with. I also started another year of work this week. And, as they announced on Monday, we are going to welcome the new era of Reiwa (令和) very soon.
I am still catching up on some R&R as my weekend was spent with the play, which was fun but took a lot of energy. I was so tired and sore on Monday. I will try to recover by this weekend. I still have a lot of things to write about. I am soooo behind on my Eurovision series.
For this Battle of the Songs, I decided to do a battle centered around a song that I wanted to see enter the arena for a while. I was thinking about doing a “fools” theme as Monday was April’s Fool. But, it’s kind of too late.
This week’s 4M is a free choice week. Since a local adaptation of James Brock’s rendition of Aesop’s Fables, which I am a part of, will open this weekend only at a local playhouse here in Nagoya, I dedicate this 4M to the fox.
Everyone knows about the “Tortoise and the Hare” from the Aesop’s Fables collection! But have you heard “The Fox and the Sour Grapes”? Or even the “Donkey and the Lion Skin”? Or perhaps, “The Fox and the Crow”?
Why did I choose the fox for this 4M? Well, that is because I am playing the character of the Fox in one of the fables. I also play the role of Betty who is a bit of a snob and wants everything her way, think Gretchen Wieners from Mean Girls or a snobby rich girl from Clueless. (Note: This play features humans transforming into different animals, It’s also an ensemble play.) I can’t reveal the whole story (but you can find parts of the play on Google Books) as you have to come to Nagoya to see it! Of course, I can post the highlight video when it comes out.
I recently conducted an email interview with a rock band named Into•The•Deep from England. They talked about the newest single, how they came together, and answered my question of how music influences them.

My, my, my! 2019 is blazing by too quickly! I can’t believe that spring will be here in less than three weeks!
According to the National Days calendar, tomorrow is Hinamatsuri (or Doll’s Day here in Japan, click to read more about this special day) and March 8 is International Woman’s Day. March is also Woman History Month. So to pay tribute to these special occasions, it’s an all-female band battle in this edition of Battle of the Songs.
For this Valentines, I asked YOU, my lovely readers, to submit your favorite love song and why you like it! I received so many great entries! You can listen to everyone’s choices and read their messages below the cut! Enjoy!
