Jaguar XJ220

The Jaguar XJ220 is a mid-engined sports car produced by Jaguar in collaboration with Tom Walkinshaw Racing as Jaguar Sport between 1992 and 1994. It held the record for the highest top speed of a production car (350 km/h, 217 mph) until the arrival of the McLaren F1 in 1994.

This is the third post of this post is supposed to be posted not only to the posterous, but also forwarded to my other sites I owned which are connected to my posterous blog.

The article above is a fragment of wikipedia article [] about the jaguar XJ220, which also featured on the need for speed II game for the Sony PlayStation back in the nineties.

The picture shown within this post is from the footage in the need for speed II game.

Hachiko: A Dog's Story

This is a movie about a dog, a loyal dog

Hachi was found by a professor on a train station, where he took him home and finally keep em, despite his wife disapproval. But this is not the part where Hachi shows loyalty. At one point Hachi started to wait the professor at the front of the train station at the designated hour, every day, then go home together with the professor.

As the plot thickens, Hachi and the professor's relationship grew into a very strong bond, one which an Akita breed's trait. Hachi, doesn't want to play fetch with the professor, nor with any other person Hachi encounter. Later described by the professor's friend that Hachi one day will, and that is the moment where Hachi will be truly loyal with the professor. And one day Hachi did, just before the professor goes to work.

Unfortunate event then occur, the professor got a heart attack in the middle of his lecture and never made it home. Hachi still wait in the front of the train station, later picked up by the professor's daughter, and go home. The next day, Hachi waits for the professor at the very moment where he would arrive before. This goes everyday, for the next ten years. Hachi was taken care of by the hot dog seller and those who are around the train station, until one day, Hachi's eyes closed and then reunited with the professor, in heaven.


Richard Gere as Parker Wilson, the professor
Joan Allen as Cate Wilson, the professor's wife
Sarah Roemer as Andy Wilson, the professor's daughter
Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa as Ken
Eric Avari as Jess
Jason Alexander as Carl
Davenia McFadden as Mary Anne
Kevin DeCoste as Ronnie
Tora Hallstrom as Heather
Robbie Sublett as Michael
The adult Hachiko is played by three Akitas named Chico, Layla and Forrest - each playing a different period in Hachiko's life

This film is a remake from a Japanese Movie, Hachiko Monogatari, havent seen it, but soon will.

But the story itself is a true story. It happened in 1924 to 1935, in Tokyo Japan, the station is Shibuya Station, and where Hachiko used to wait the professor has become a famous meeting place in Tokyo.

A bronze statue of Hachiko can be found here, while Hachiko's stuffed and mounted remains are kept in National Science Museum of Japan at Ueno.


And this is a picture of Hachiko, taken the moment when he waited for the professor

Last Words
You must see this movie, it will make a grown man cry. The flow of this movie is slow, and it really sets the mood of how daily life is, while still gets the viewers' emotion. Also music of the movie is just perfect. A dog person will certainly loves this movie, a sad yet beautiful movie of a dog's loyalty.

I dare you to watch this movie and not shed a single tear ^^

His signature stuttering sounds [stutter edit] is back, of course ^^

This album in my opinion can't be classified as a trance album, this is an electronic music album in general, although it has a trance genre feeling in the album.

Every Other Way, the #3 track of the album can be enjoyed before the release date, it's on Armin Van Buuren's Live Album, The Universal Religion Chapter 4, you can hear it from my link on the right side pane or stream it from the embedded media below ^^ and it has been one of my favorite since.

When I listened to the original on this album, it really has a different sound, but it's all good, even better, you can also find it from the links or stream it from the embedded media below so that you can compare it with Armin's remix.

BT - Every Other Way

BT - Every Other Way (Armin Van Buuren Remix)

Overall, this album has a refreshing sounds in the electronic music I've been hearing, nice is not the word, you must hear it to feel that it is better than good

Ferry Corsten - Twice In a Blue Moon

Ferry Corsten.. how many of you know that name? dont bother answering, maybe you dont know this man by this name, but as a trance music fans you might know this man in his other aliases, Moon Man, Gouryella, System F etc. Yes, this man is System F, and in the last few weeks I've been listening to his album, Twice In a Blue Moon. here's the cover of the album:

and the track listing:

Ferry Corsten - Twice In a Blue Moon

1."Shelter Me"   5:59
2."Black Velvet (feat. Julia Messenger)"   5:45
3."We Belong (feat. Maria Nayler)"   5:45
4."Gabriella's Sky"   7:10
5."Made Of Love (feat. Betsie Larkin)"   6:41
6."Radio Crash"   6:37
7."Twice In A Blue Moon"   5:52
8."Feel You (feat. Betsie Larkin)"   5:24
9."Life (feat. Ben Cullum)"   6:15
10."Brain Box"   6:05
11."Shanti"   7:09
12."Visions Of Blue"  2:08

My favorites are, Black Velvet and Gabriella's Sky

Ferry Corsten - Black Velvet

Ferry Corsten - Gabriella's Sky

Black Velvet is a trance vocal track, and the sound is one of the best I've ever heard, it has the element of surprise that will make you crave for more, and as for Gabriella's Sky, it reminds me of Andromeda by DJ Quicksilver, it has a soothing feel of a ambient trance, just love it!

Ferry released Brain Box as his first single, then Radio Crash few weeks before the album itself, after that Made of Love and We Belong were chosen as the following single. I wouldnt give more yadda yadda these singles though.

Overall, the album  gives a strong impression of how trance was supposed to be, a hard hit to the now-more-mellow-trance-tracks, Ferry reminds me how trance is supposed to be.

This one's a gem, listen, and you'll know what I mean.

Kaleidoscope by Tiesto

Today, we'll talk about Tiesto's Kaleidoscope, his newest album.


Before its release date, Tiesto unleashed one single, a collaboration with Sneaky Sound System, a song called I Will Be Here. From the sound of the single, it's kinda different from any previous Tiesto's sound, but hey the guy's just out from Black Hole and start his own label when he produced this, so new sounds is tolerable.

Then come October 6th 2009, a date that marked the day when Kaleidoscope is unleashed to this world. Take a listen at the songs, track number 1,2,3 up to the last, just like when i listened to the I Will Be Here song, it was official, Tiesto is experimenting in this album. He took a whole lot different level for this album, way so many "Tiesto featuring ", not that I don't like it, but judging from his previous sounds, you will not found Traffic like sounds, or if you compare this to the Parades of Athletes, this is the very opposite, full of vocals.

Here's the track list

1. Tiesto - Kaleidoscope (Feat. Jonsi) (7:35)
2. Tiesto - Escape Me (Feat. C.C. Sheffield) (4:17)
3. Tiesto - You Are My Diamond (Feat. Kianna) (4:09)
4. Tiesto - I Will Be Here (Feat. Sneaky Sound System) (3:25)
5. Tiesto - I Am Strong (Feat. Priscilla Ahn) (5:37)
6. Tiesto - Here On Earth (Feat. Cary Brothers) (4:55)
7. Tiesto - Always Near (1:33)
8. Tiesto - It's Not The Things You Say (Feat. Kele Okereke) (3:13)
9. Tiesto - Fresh Fruit (5:23)
10. Tiesto - Century (Feat. Calvin Harris) (4:41)
11. Tiesto - Feel It In My Bones (Feat. Tegan & Sara) (4:51)
12. Tiesto - Who Wants To Be Alone (Feat. Nelly Furtado) (4:35)
13. Tiesto - La Ride (4:13)
14. Tiesto - Bend It Like You Don't Care (3:21)
15. Tiesto - Knock You Out (Feat Emily Haines) (5:05)
16. Tiesto - Louder Than Boom (4:09)
17. Tiesto - Surrounded By Light (2:39)

The first track, Kaleidoscope is by far a nice intro for the album, with a calm sound which will take u like a breeze then came the mild storm of trance music, in Escape Me (this is supposed to be the second single from the album) Tiesto goes energetic, reminds me of aikawa nanase's sound in the past, but that's another story, third! You Are My Diamond, this is Pop, yeah, it's a pop music sounds in a trance music album, but the tunes kinda catchy :) four, I Will Be Here, sounded like a progressive trance or pop punk on extacy, fifth, I Am Strong, the tunes kinda reminds me of the hit, In My Memory, but down 2 levels for the "oooh" feel, sixth, Here On Earth, featuring an indie rock artist from US, Cary Brothers, and felt like an indie rock with an electro sounds.

Seventh, Always Near, the first no vocal song in the album, i think here Tiesto tried to create his newsounds of trance, but I think it's not happening, not as a new found Tiesto sounds, eighth, It's Not The Things You Say, featuring one of my favorite band's lead Singer Kele Okereke of Bloc Party, but somehow in this song, Tiesto doesn't make an impression, it's just like any other Bloc Party's song, then came the Ninth, Fresh Fruit, another non vocal song in the album, it's the electro sounds that will remind you of this song, but it will not like when you hear Lethal Industry, Tenth, Century, this one's felt fast and that's it.

Eleventh, Feel It In My Bones Feat. Tegan & Sara, this is one of my favorite sounds in the album, it felt pop but it has the feel of progressive trance, twelfth, Who Wants To Be Alone, this one features Nelly Furtado, a quite familiar name in the music industry, like her previous Loose album when she collaborates with many musicians, this collaboration with Tiesto is a better version of it, number thirteen, La Ride, this will sound nice listened when you driving a car, moving in 100mph, fourteenth, Bend It Like You Don't Care, an electro sounded songs, definitely Tiesto.

Fifteenth, Knock You Out, the last vocal song in the album, a fast pop sound, then sixteenth, Louder Than Boom, sounds like traffic but it's not, although this one's one of the best sound in the album, and seventeenth, the last song, Surrounded By Light, a nice outro for the album, an ambient sounds that will take you to the outside.

An avid Tiesto fans would say, this is not Tiesto, but for me, also a fan, would say that this album just a new sounds of Tiesto way to cope with his own original sounds and in my own opinion, it is where trance music would go at this time, I mean, do listen to Armin Van Buuren, and Paul Van Dyk, also Ferry Corsten, amongst those four DJs, their sounds was quite similar (trance filled with vocals).

So people, enjoy Tiesto's Kaleidoscope, I know I do...
