Two Months Later…

I’m probably going to end up hearing about what an addict I am, but oh for goodness sake… It’s finally here!

The album is wonderful. Admittedly, Vanessa Mae is still my first pick when it comes to violins, but whoever played the violin for this album, hats off to you sir/ma’m. It’s the first time I ever heard the song in full, and the whole 13 minutes of the Devil’s Trill was quite an experience.

The tracks are mostly classical violin pieces that are all very impressive and difficult. Only the first track is an original solo for the anime, Onegai My Melody.

  1. イントロダクション「夢の幕間~柊のテーマ~」 Introduction: Hiiragi’s Theme
  2. ツィゴイネルワイゼン Zigeunerweisen, Op.20
  3. シャコンヌ ト短調 Chaconne in G Minor
  4. スケルツォ=タランテラ Scherzo-tarantelle, Op. 16
  5. プレリュードとアレグロ Praeludiem and Allegro
  6. 伝説曲 Op.17 Legende, Op.17
  7. 24のキャプリース 作品1 第13番 ト短調 24 Caprices for solo violin, Op.1 No.13 in G minor
  8. 悪魔のトリル The Devil’s Trill Sonata in G Minor
  9. タイスの瞑想曲 Meditation from Thais

If anyone is interested, you can email me and I can share you the mp3s. Only until the link is valid though, so that’s about… a week? ^^

The Royal Mint of England and Hello Kitty

hello kitty limited edition coin by the royal mint of englandI don't like Hello Kitty very much... in fact, I adore Kuromi more than Hello Kitty.

However, I do have a fascination of coins. Limited edition coins are always lovely to look at, and I think out of all the limited edition coins set to be released for Hello Kitty's 35th anniversary celebration, this takes the cake.

I keep thinking it looks as if they've walked into the lang of Kuroshitsuji. And for one, Mimmy's dress looks better that Hello Kitty's (which pretty much reminds me of Baro't Saya, the Philippine's National costume/dress for women).

For people who can't tell who's who, Mimmy on the left, with the bow on her right ear, and Hello Kitty's on the right, with the bow on her left ear.

Why do I have the feeling that I will end up buying these some day? *_*;;;

In other news, flying cockroach at 2 in the morning is no fun and games in the Kho household. =.=;;; I lack sleep thanks to the hovering, disgusting... asjdhasda!!! I'm disinfecting everything in my room again later, pfft.

What's in a Name?

kuroshitsuji / black butler sebastian michaelis icon made by cokho7I'm not one to make or indulge in gossip... In fact, I never follow the local showbiz news. However, this one news can't escape me because of my name.

Yes, I'm talking about the Katrina Halili and Hayden Kho incident. I'm not going to deny that my name is in fact, Columbia Kho. Lots of people have been asking me lately if I'm related to Hayden...

In fact, hearsay suggests he even went to the same school as me.

I suppose my last name is pretty unique, that's why people assume what they want... Honestly though? I've never heard of anyone from my family by the name of Hayden. I had a classmate in my high school who is also a Kho but we never knew each other before. Then again, "Kho" is my father's name, and I'm not very well acquainted with my father's side of the family. And they also say all Kho's (including Co, Ko, Koh or however you spell it), are related in some way or form, but that doesn't mean I know Hayden personally.

So if you really want more information on this scandal, you're really not going to get it from me.

If you want my opinion about the subject though, here is it: I don't like what happened to Katrina... but I also don't like what she did. Based on the first video my officemate so generously shared, she knew she was being video tapped, so then why would you make a sex video? If Hayden was the one who tapped it, what was his purpose? He's married, for goodness sake, and I don't think he'd make that evidence just to kill his marriage with Vicki Belo.

Then again... people are capable of doing the cruelest things.

When my mom, my brother, and I were watching the news about the scandal, I jokingly commented I should change my name to avoid all this gossip. Surprisingly enough, she agreed. She wants me to change my whole name, and not just my last name, HAHA! Anyone have any suggestions?

Four Icon Spams

Before that, let me just say that I hate Play-Asia right now. :/

The CD I ordered from them still has not arrived. It's been a month and a half already, and I still haven't received it. I never had trouble with the local post before, I don't see why this is any different. Argh...

I hope no one stole it. I mean, Onegai My Melody isn't exactly a popular anime here in the Philippines, so there's no reason for anyone to steal it. Sheesh... these are just one of those days when I absolutely despise my country.


Once upon a time, I fell in love with the anime, Vampire Knight.

Now? Well, not so much... I'm currently following the manga though, and I'm looking forward to purchasing the books when they become available. :D

Three Icon Spams

I had forgotten about my Yu Yu Hakusho icons... Probably one of my biggest collections so far, but Onegai My Melody will probably beat this later on.

Dedicated to [info]banditfox who is having a hard time RP-ing right now. I hope these icons will make you feel better. ^^

...and I should really stop spamming my blog, haha. I haven't had anything to write about lately so... Please bear with me for now and enjoy the pretty~ :3

Two Icon Spams

I didn't realize I had so many icons in stock. Might not all be best for RP-ing purposes, but I think some people might find some good uses for them. :3

Oh yeah, and I changed my layout. :D My dearest, Chinese friends, please let me know if some of my labels fail. xD Might change the banner some time later to make it more personalized. :3 *nods nods*

Turnabout Café

Turnabout Cafe by ~kurohiko on deviantART

I think I've finally loosened up a little bit.

I've always been rigid about not altering the original ink work because I use to think it was cheating. However, I did everything I could to make this piece look good on the original and the flipped version. I did a ton of editing on her face and hair to give the finished piece more balance.

Because I'm such a perfectionist though, I want to edit the background again later... And there's the Onegai My Rozen Maiden Melody background to take care of too.

I hadn't noticed how I may have given Uta a new hairdo though. The curls of her pigtails are not like the original... in fact, I think it looks like Sailor Moon's..! Subconscious, maybe?

One Icon Spam

I don't know if people here in blogspot are interested in this sort of thing, but I owe a lot of people when it comes to icons, and I thought it'd be nice to share this with the world. :D

success is about being courteous, thoughtful, and caring as according to st. jude

Huh... I don't think most of the rich folk would agree to this... frankly, after all of the "successful" people I met so far, neither would I.

How did that song go again? Oh yeah...

I believe the struggle for financial freedom is unfair.
I believe the only one to disagree are millionaires.

Then again, I speak of financial success, I suppose there are other ways to interpret this passage.

Onegai My Rozen Maiden Melody

Onegai My Rozen Maiden Melody by ~kurohiko on deviantART

After two weeks, I finally got to finish this... I'm so not going to draw ruffles for a while. Comments are much appreciated, please and thank you!

My wrist is unfortunately killing me thank to a torn ligament. That means not much blogging and drawing for at least a week. If it doesn't get better then I'm in big trouble.

I'm also working on a filler fan-manga "Mote-Mote" for 相信漫畫 since A.illusions is on standstill at the moment. Hopefully, drawing a doujin can get me inspired to draw more.
