Kaldath’s Corner: Review Of “Syncopation” by Babymetal

Well here I am with another Kaldath's Corner about my second favorite band in the world "Babymetal". I have to say these girls and their backing band ( The Kami band ) have been on a roll over the last year, opening up shows for the likes Metallica, Guns n' Roses, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, and Korn as well as selling out a solo concert at the Palladium in Los Angeles California!

Today I am going to be reviewing their newest song ( brand new to me ) Syncopation which they premiered at the end of 2016 at the conclusion of their world tour in Tokyo Japan in the Tokyo Dome! SO let's get started ....

Canadian Music Countdown!

 

As a Canadian, I’ve been celebrating my country’s 150th birthday. To that end, I thought I’d do something different and talk about music again. Specifically, Canadian music. So we’re going to do a quick round-up of Canadian bands/singers you should listen to (if you aren’t already). As many of you already know, I come from a heavily classic rock/metal background and that does tend to inform my choices. I suppose that’s what happens when the first albums you own (on tape!) were Bryan Adams’ Reckless and Def Leppard’s Pyromania. So no Celine Dion, or Justin Bieber (we all apologize for that one), or Nickelback, or anyone like that. Everyone already knows Canadian acts like Leonard Cohen, The Guess Who, and Shania Twain, so I think I’m safe concentrating on others. So let’s see what we’ve got!

The List: Top 10 Pokemon I’m Excited For In Pokemon Sun And Moon

So, the next generation of Pokémon games are to be released a week tomorrow and obviously I was going to do something on them right? I mean, I did for the last 2 pairs of games in the series, so why break a habit. But as this generation isn't introducing too many new mechanics or a new typing, unlike X&Y, (Z-moves are pretty much the only thing), I'm just going to focus on the new Pokémon that are coming with the new games. But obviously I can't cover all of them because that would be too much, so instead I'm just gonna do a list, again why break a habit. So here are the top 10 Pokémon I'm most excited for in Sun and Moon.  NOTE: I'm not including the Ultra-Beasts as it's not confirmed whether they are actually Pokémon or not at time of writing.

Oh and OBVIOUS SPOILER WARNING IS BLATENTLY OBVIOUS!!!!

Kaldath’s Corner: Halloween Specific Candy!

Before I had gotten sick I had started a series I had planned to keep going at least for a year  where I would get a mystery package full of Japanese Candy and snacks once a month and would taste test them for you on video. Well My diabetes getting completely out of control and landing me in the hospital ended that series real quick. Well today on the youtube channel linked to one of the services I use to study Japanese there was a video about Japanese halloween themed candies. Now I can not taste test this stuff for you, but that doesn't mean I can't link you too another video that does, and I have always found Risa ( the host of this video) to be funny and entertaining, so here you go ......................

 

Now that the video is over, I do have a question for you all. What candy ( Currently or in the past ) is your favorite October/Halloween favorite ? Mine has always been candy corn, I love the stuff though with my diabetes I fear I will not be able to partake of it anymore.
