I believe I’m ready to show you who I really am.

I’ve experienced a lot in the past 3 years since I discovered this talent. I always sang but never wrote music.

All of a sudden, this…what you play here is where I am today.


I don’t know how far this will go, or how long this will last, but I am willing to die for this music.

I have become living proof that anything you BELIEVE is possible. I will never stop creating.

Fox (Marty McFly) wore in the movie Back to the Future 2. This is Nike’s first rechargeable footwear release with a design closely based on the shoes from the filmand they feature an identical silhouette, automatic lacing, and LED panels that glow for 4 hours after a full charge. These high-top shoes will have a limited release with 1,500 pairs set to be auctioned on eBay through, and the auction will run from September 8th to 18th with 150 pairs available every day. All the proceeds will go to the Michael J. Fox Foundation that helps fund Parkinson’s disease cure research. Nike has already pledged to match all donations up to $50 million; currently the bids range from $3,550 to $9,000 for sizes 7-13.

Apartment in Katayama by Mitsutomo Matsunami Architect & Associates (JP)

April 29, 2011

This seven-storey apartment block in Katayama, Osaka Prefecture was realised by the Umeda-based Mitsutomo Matsunami Architect & Associates. The striking façade of the building reflects ‘the lifestyle inside the apartment itself’ while its monochrome colouring is juxtaposed with ‘dull buildings of beige, grey or brick shades’ that dominate the development’s immediate surroundings.
The building is constructed on an exceptionally small 110 square metre site and comprises of 10 apartments whose ‘room arrangement matches that of the window pattern’. Additionally, the legal height restrictions allowed the architects to create a high-ceiling maisonette within the building.
