Fire!

A shocking action update from second generation member Twissie. At approximately 1am tonight I took a look out of my apartment window because I thought I smelled something burning. And, what do you know. A huge dumpster fire was taking place right down the road!

The music in the video is Veteranens klage by Kaizers Orchestra (for those wondering).

Monday Five

Monday Five is a weekly segment in the Ongaku!Project WordPress where we present five random O!P members with a question. Their answers to that question will be posted here each Monday. It’s a unique chance to get to know the O!P members a bit better! We were only able to grab 4 members to answer this week’s question. Everyone seems to be keeping pretty busy this summer~

 

Q: Who do you look up to or consider to be your hero?

 

Miyoki: I would say that currently I look up to Kitade Nana as kind of my idol and such. In terms of fashion and lifestyle she represents a lot of what I aspire to be like. I unfortunatly just gotta get a little richer to be able to look as good as her..^^;

 

 

 

Nono: Hmm.. Well a lot of people say their family is, so it’s obvious mine is too. But besides my parents I would have to say my bestfriend Valen is. =] She is always there for me no matter what! I trust her with everything and she’s always looking out for me. She’s like a “mother-figure” to me. She’s always trying to find what’s best for me and she’s very supportive of a lot that I do and things like that. That’s why I say she is my hero =]. <333

 

Chococat: There are a couple of people that I really admire, but the number one is definitely Trent Reznor, frontman of Nine Inch Nails. I’m always inspired by the way that he’s been through a lot in his life, and battled with a lot of demons, but he’s always not only managed to get through it, but keep pushing forward, musically and artistically. He can make an astonishing range of music, from full-on screeching noise down to beautiful, melancholy, quiet and subdued piano tracks. He takes his music so seriously and, best of all, he truly appreciates his fans and their support.

 

Twissie: For me it would have to be Janove Ottesen and the rest of the members in Kaizers Orchestra, my favourite band. They’ve really opened up my eyes to what it’s like to try and make it as a band in my own country. Celebrating international success, but still not making that much money out of it. Their passion for what they do, their commitment to what they started… it’s an inspiration for me to do my best and never give up my dreams. It’s also made me more down to earth and has made me think more realistically about some aspects of myself and my future. On top of that they seem like genuinely nice people. They know how to take care of their fans and they definitely know how to put on a good show~

4th of July in Ohio

Well, the 4th of July ended and I’ve been celebrating it for the past two days! It’s working against my attempt at getting skinny! Haha, anyway! On the 3rd Columbus, Ohio does an annual fireworks show called ‘Red White & Boom’ I went there with 3 of my friends and we had a lot of fun, mostly before the fireworks. I’m not sure why they do it on the third. We were at the post office a bit away, so the firework view from there wasn’t so great.

However, on the 4th we went to Hilliard’s fireworks, which is my city’s annual firework event. We were on a hill right across the pond they were being set off from. It was okay until my friend Jim’s mom had us move from flat land to actually sitting on the hill. I kept sliding, and it was muddy because of the rain earlier (yay for blankets and trash bags to stop it from getting on us so much) and it was the worst part of the hill. I really didn’t want to move, but whatever haha~ I got some great pictures of the fireworks and I took some videos of them and the grand finale.

The video I put together is of Red White & Boom stuff at the beginning and pretty fireworks towards the end!

Monday Five

Monday Five is a weekly segment in the Ongaku!Project WordPress where we present five random O!P members with a question. Their answers to that question will be posted here each Monday. It’s a unique chance to get to know the O!P members a bit better!

Q: What is something you do everyday?

Suki: There are actually a number of things which I do everyday. The routine is to check if any new episodes of J-dorama is out for grabs, then I will spend about a half hour checking out geino news before checking on my Neopets! Neopets dropped out of my daily routine for a bit (coz I got too lazy to log in and play games), but lately coz of the Altador Cup, I’ve been back at it on a daily basis. So… Woohoo!! Go Shenkuu~!! ^o^

Tenkei:Everyday?! Man, there are so many things I do everyday… brush my teeth, shower, eat, sleep (usually >.>), use interwebs, and listen to music. Until just recently, I watched movie everyday, and also read everyday, but those have slowly fallen out of routine, lol

Rei-chan: Everyday… I guess it’d be my routine of checking updates on the net XD Every day I take a moment to check e-mail, Facebook, the O!P Forum, JPH!P, Neopets (yeah… XD), and the dorama streaming sites. That way I stay up to date on everything ^o^

Bleebluu: Lets see…something I do everyday would be to check the weather online~ I check it when I wake up, before I sleep, and at least 3~5 times during the day. Think its partly because I live in Vancouver, and the weather people are never right! (or the weather is just unpredictable) It can rain, snow, hail, thunder, lighting, and be sunny all in one day =] But I still ❤ Vancouver

Odango: PANGYA!!! Lately I’ve fallen back into loving the game XDDD But besides that, I tend to sing everyday~ Even if it’s not for a karaoke, I like to practice and try different songs so I can work on range and things XD I’m singing obsessed I guess ^^;; Lately I’ve also been working on mixing every day as well. But I love music so it’s always fun for me 😀
