“Children Full Of Life” Documentary on YouTube

Saturday, 25 July, 2009

This documentary, a piece entitled “Children Full Of Life” takes place in a fourth grade class in Kanazawa, Japan.  The teacher of these students, Kanamori Toshiro teaches his students to bond, and encourages them to write “notebook letters”.  These letters are an insight to the mind of a 10 year-old child.

The letters are always very well done, and insightful, something that is telling of Kanamori-sensei’s teachings.  I thought this wonderfully done documentary was far too touching to keep buried in the confines of YouTube!

日々の音色 (hibi no neiro) a music video by Sour

Friday, 3 July, 2009

I ran across this video by the band Sour, while I perused the sites that I normally do in a day’s time.  The song is called 日々の音色 (hibi no neiro–the tone of everyday).  Fans of the band created the various parts of this video by filiming themselves on webcams.  All I can say is that a LOT must have went into making and editing this video.

I am not familiar with the band Sour, but, the video is well made!  The song is great, too (what little I can understand).  But, it has a good beat.  So good beat + great visuals = a pretty damned enjoyable time spent watching and listening!  Enjoy!!
