pop + manga + music = Asobi Seksu

27 11 2007

So I’ve been rather busy in the past many days since Black Friday twiddling around with an old 1GHz Intel Pentium III 256MB RAM laptop. Formatted the hard drive on it to the EXT3 format and loaded the most popular Debian Linux-based operating system – Ubuntu 7.10 aka Gutsy Gibbon. The process was long and lengthy and may not be for the faint hearted but it was definitely worth the trouble. FYI, Ubuntu is completely FREE which brings me now to a something else.

Randomly bumped into ASOBE SEKU ASOBI SEKSU on YouTube while following the exploits of Zadi Diaz on JetSetShow’s EPIC-FU. Asobi Seksu (according to Wikipedia) is a New York City band featuring Yuki Chikudate (vocals, keyboards), James Hanna (guitar, vocals), and Ben Shapiro (drums). I thought I was listening to some Rilo Kiley or some kinda Euro indie pop group but whadya kno. If you’re into that, you might like Asobi Seksu (Nihongo for “playful sex”). Part pop, part manga, all music, the song featured below is titled “Goodbye” and is from their latest album Citrus.

PS: WTF is “eponymous” and WTF is that word doing out on Asobe Seksu’s wiki page???
