Namie Amuro "Alive"

Some of my Japanese friends think it is funny that I am a fan of Namie Amuro, but I think she's a good singer, a good dancer, and I think she's gorgeous!  :)  So I will post some links to some of her music videos that I like.

"Alive" was released on July 10, 2013 on the "Feel" album.

Rough Green Snake (Opheodrys aestivus).

Until last week, I never saw one of these in my yard: Rough Green Snake (Opheodrys aestivus). It quickly climbed up into my crepe myrtle. (it's non-venomous). They eat insects and spiders.

Acer palmatum ‘Atrolineare’

I went with some friends to shop for some bushes at some of the local Nurseries.  I ‘ve wanted a linearilobum (thin, narrow, strap-like leaves) Japanese maple for awhile, and I have been looking at these having one of these two:Villa Taranto:

or

However, I found Atrolineare and it was at such a low price, $25.00USD, I decided to get it.

(especially since I haven’t heard back from the place where I purchased my last Japanese maple tree from)

Godzilla vs. Biollante (ゴジラVSビオランテ, Gojira tai Biorante)

Video: http://youtu.be/Qf0gVn29sZI I’m trying to catch up on Heisei era of the Godzilla movies.  I finally watched Godzilla vs. Biollante (ゴジラVSビオランテ, Gojira tai Biorante).  It originally came out in 1989 (Second movie of the Heisei series) and hasn’t had as wide of a release in the USA as some of the earlier Godzilla movies.

Due to complicated interference of some terrorists, a scientist mixes the DNA of his deceased daughter with that of a rose and some Godzilla cells (“so she will live forever”).  Unfortunately, his plans go awry and he ends up creating Biollante.  In this movie, they also introduce two new weapons against Godzilla.  First is the Super X2, a flying machine which not has missiles, but a cluster of man made diamonds which act as a reflector – it takes Godzilla’s atomic breath, amplifies it, and sends it back to Godzilla.  The other weapon is “Anti nuclear bacteria” – I’m not sure why they didn’t try using this in latter movies. Video: http://youtu.be/Ot8q1GIzndI This movie also introduced the character of Miki Saegusa, (played by Megumi Odaka (小高恵美) a psychic girl who would also appear in the later films of the Heisei era.

An interesting movie (for the Godzilla franchise), but I wished that Biollante was a more formidable foe.  She does spear Godzilla’s hand in the movie with one of her tendrils (which have Venus flytrap like “mouths” at the ends).  Supposedly Biollante does not die; she can dissolve into spores and return.

From the 1991 movie, " " ( ゴジラVSキングギドラ).  Megumi Odaka ( 小高恵美) is in the movie. http://tamashii.jp/item/1781/
