从秒速5厘米中得到的感动

看新海诚的第一部作品是<<云之彼端.约定的地方>>.看完后对其故事情节渐模糊,只有影片中那炫丽的色彩和实物般的场景让人印象深刻.接下来就是这部<<秒速5厘米>>

<<秒速5厘米>>是一个三幕式的连续短篇,故事没有一个整体的轮廓,只是个由距离,时间,心灵独白,少年回忆,樱花坠落组成的只言片语.第一话中,贵树与明里因彼此的转学而分开,为了与明里相见,贵树连续坐车,最终两人相见并约定不因彼此的距离而忘记.第二话以贵树的同学花苗为视角,讲述了花苗暗恋贵树,却因猜测到他已有喜欢之人而无法表白.第三话,贵树回到了东京,却发现自己与明里的心灵越来越远.

这就是<<秒速5厘米>>的全部大概,分隔两地的恋人因为距离而疏远,失去联系,直到最后擦肩而过时形同陌人.一个单纯的故事却让人心痛.新海诚在本片中对声画的控制非常精准,片中的许多场景如地铁,车站,教室等,都非常写实,而霓虹,日炽灯,篝火,樱花又衬托出了浪漫的氛围,让时过境迁的你回望那些怅然往事,是否发觉人生错过了什么.

这个分类的意义

其实我想了很久,人说回忆过去美好的事情是变老的表现,但是我还是忍不住想起了那些大院里发生的事情。

从小P孩时代在地上玩灰(play with ash)——这可能是我们的专利,带着竹枪木棍玩打仗,大院里躲咪猫,烧火(不要模仿),打洋画等等有趣的事情,其实这些都是我回忆中的经典片断。我的眼睛就是这些镜头的摄像机,铭刻下来了这些珍贵的胶片,现在我把逐分寻找并且将它冲洗出来,一份份放在眼前怀念。然而和我一起度过这美好童年的朋友们,你们的摄像机拍摄的老胶片呢,把我们的胶片凑齐,那就是我们的美好童年,让我们再现这珍贵的回忆。

其实我觉得可以分几个课题,比——玩灰专业版等等^^

OK take the action my dear friends.Do something!

非主流乐评 Eluveitie – Inis Mona

二话不说先放图吸引注意力,yeah~

Inis Mona是Eluveitie的08新专Slania中的主打曲目,刚从iqgao处下回来新鲜滚烫的mv,才看开头已经热血沸腾,忍不住要唠叨一番了(上次有这个感觉好像是初见Jun Nada,面壁……)。Eluveitie起初是S推荐的,多谢啦,差点错过一个牛团!

此文是边看mv边写下的,忍不住想看啊(又“忍不住”了,看来俺定力奇差,囧)。为什么说“非主流”捏?因为俺一不识谱二不懂乐器,只能从旁分析分析啦,众看官且听俺细细道来。

0.先说重点,Anna Murphy实在是美女一名(图中后排左二),真的,不骗你们。虽然整个mv中她出镜的次数屈指可数,还是被我发现啦。对了,就是那个玩Hurdy Gurdy[*]的女生。然而表现力最好的要算拉小提琴的mm Meri Tadic了(后排右三),其中甚至有她作势要“弹奏”小提琴的镜头哦~

1.好吧,我承认,mm不是重点。在俺看过的为数不多的极金mv中,这个绝对是精品之一。不说其中穿插的旧电影式的片段(其实是因为俺没看明白这些片段的含义……),演奏现场的全黑布景和灯光照明设置非常契合主题,包括侧面造型光、鼓手头顶的补光、前排斜下方的布光(营造阴暗气息那种)、众人身后的轮廓光,灯光师赞一个!而歌词中重点词汇的闪现处理也很有新意,起码你能“看”明白主旨,如果主唱的死吼你实在听不清的话……

2.pv再好也只是歌曲的包装而已,如果没有优美的旋律,我们肯定不会被吸引。精彩的曲目编排穿插着动听的爱尔兰民族乐器演奏,再加上主唱醇厚的死吼和一段Irish Flute独奏,不爱上Eluveitie?我找不到理由。特别是副歌部分,真是百听不厌。遗憾的是我搜遍wikipedia和google也没能找到Inis Mona的涵义,到底文化背景有差呀,可惜。

3.在mv中可以看到很多奇特的民族乐器。比如前面提到的Hurdy Gurdy, Irish Flute,还有Tin and Low Whistles, Uilleann Pipes, Bodhràn等等。作为一支瑞士乐团,竟然可以将爱尔兰民族乐器运用得如此娴熟,真是佩服。

4.有意思的是,虽然乐队的歌词主题是Celtic/Helvetian[**] History,但他们官网上却在显著位置标有这样一句话:Eluveitie consider themselves a neutral band on topics as politics and religion! 不知是不是陷入什么政治宗教问题的纠纷中了。

5.说了半天,最后一定要给出视频的啦

[footnotes]科普时间~

[*]Hurdy Gurdy是一种弦乐器,通过手柄转动一个涂有松香的轮,以轮拨弦再配合键盘来发声,实在是精巧啊。具体可参见wikipedia上的描述:

A hurdy gurdy (also known as a “wheel fiddle”) is a stringed musical instrument in which the strings are sounded by means of a rosined wheel which the strings of the instrument pass over. This wheel, turned with a crank, functions much like a violin bow, making the instrument essentially a mechanical violin. Melodies are played on a keyboard that presses tangents (small wedges, usually made of wood) against one or more of these strings to change their pitch. Like most other acoustic string instruments, it has a soundboard to make the vibration of the strings audible.

其它乐器就不细说了,有兴趣的同志自己查吧。

[**]Celtic大家都知道是凯尔特人,那么Helvetian呢?说到Helvetian我们必须先了解Helvetia。Helvetia是中欧地区的一个古地名,大约处在阿尔卑斯山脉和汝拉山脉之间的高原地带,相当于今天瑞士的西部地区。那么根据英文派生词的规律,Helvetian就是指该地区的人啦(众人:废话!)。其实呢,Helvetia跟古罗马皇帝凯撒有重大关系哦,大家自己看吧,来自wikipedia:

Helvetia is the Roman name for an ancient region of central Europe occupying a plateau between the Alps and the Jura Mountains. Helvetia corresponded roughly to the western part of modern Switzerland, and the name is still used poetically.

In the first century BC, a Celtic group known as the Helvetii migrated from Southern Germany to Switzerland. Eventually, they came up against the Romans. They were pushed back into Switzerland by Caesar’s army in 58 BC. The Roman Empire founded its province of Helvetia in current Switzerland in 15 BC.

金属王国、slides、炼奶红茶及其它

metal-666竟然恢复了,多少有些意外。本以为会成为又一个feirock,尽管并不清楚当年feirock那档子事儿。iqgao同学一如既往地勤奋,于是又开始收货。可惜namimpan和fs2you仍然是老样子,不同服务器的传输速度差好多,还是教育网的问题吧,无解。收到了Eluveitie03,听过06和08后毫不犹豫地下了,Su你要的话msg我。对悠扬类的folk基本免疫了,果然black/viking/folk还是要走极端的才好,这个择日详谈。

做了一下午论文的slides,beamer就是好,更何况有模板。配置基本完成,明天开始主攻内容了,越来越喜欢latex。向Donald Knuth老爷爷致敬,您是最棒的!

炼奶是好东西,红茶也是好东西,加起来呢? $1+1 \not= 2$ ? 生涩感久久不去。

S出差了,也不知回家没有;W不见人影,可能还在烦工作的事吧;L只是稍微露了下脸就消失不见,冷漠的家伙,喂,说的就是你!

S曾叮嘱说不能记流水账,抱歉啦,俺这儿明知故犯。冷冷清清的,我不做点什么的话,恐怕这里要在沉默中消亡的。其实并没有抱怨的意思,毕竟长大了,各有各忙,只是希望兄弟们能抽空来看看,看看就好。

重聚,我们在这里

首先要感谢freehoxt提供的免费空间,虽然顶部有banner,但俺用firefox的abp屏蔽鸟~眼不见为净。我是不是感谢有偿的、不知哪天会挂掉或者GFW的免费空间的第一人呢?佩服自己一个先~

接下来要感谢WordPress的开发人员和中文团队,WordPress的确是一个十分优秀的博客平台,而本地化始终是一项很有意义的工作。

真正要感谢的在这里,W. Liu(尽管你个鸟人还没来),J. Su,L. Wu,是你们的积极响应和支持让我有了建立这个博客的动力。

最后要小小感谢偶自己一把,在完全没有建站经验的情况下,终于完成了。虽说WordPress平台是现成的,调试还是用了不少时间,呼呼~

以上大部分属于瞎掰,哥儿几个别扁我……正经的在下面,不多,就两句,好吧,我加了个句号,三句。

是的,我们在慢慢长大,但我们不应渐行渐远。因此,今天,我们在这里重聚。一片乐土,几个梦想,不尽的友情。

What’s wrong with Megashares.com?

here’s the problem. when the uploading process is finished, there’s no link generated for me. i’ve been waiting all the way. see the snapshot below for detail.

similar situation occurs at Gigasize.com sometimes.

but i’m working fine with other online storage sites, such as snapdrive, megaupload, filefactory.

can anybody tell me what the hell is going on? or i’m the only unlucky guy that encounters the problem?

!HERE I AM AGAIN?

it’s been a year, dude, a whole damn year. and finally, i’m here again. i misssss you guys, every one of you, really, including those who called me leecher (this is sth. i’d like to explain later). may f*cking metal be with you every bloody day!

here’s the situation,

1. under the influence of my own country’s policy of ban on wordpress.com and the poor network on my campus, i was not able to access this site. but with the help of our holy god (^^), i’m here again. i hope it’s not temporary, and i really do. may the mighty lord be here for me all the time.

2. since i had no access to my lovely site, i didn’t read many of your comments. i’ll do it ASAP and try to respond. would anybody do me a favor? tell me, am i a bad english writer? correct me if i’ve done anything wrong with the spelling or gramma. thanx a lot. ^^

3. okay, here’s how i’m gonna explain the “leecher” thing. originally, i just wanna share what i’ve got from internet about extreme metal. and then i found the great site www.metalunion.org. but this website seems to have everything in foreign language, so i suppose maybe it’s a good idea to turn the information there into english, which is more convenient for the world wide reader. the worst part is, i didn’t get their permission to do so, nor did i ask for it. i’m really sorry for that and i apologize, sincerely.

4. from now on, there won’t any link from metalunion.org until i’m permitted to get them here. i’ll try to upload files myself and also collect some from the forum that i visit frequently.

best of luck, fellas. you’re the most precious “resource” i’ve ever got over net, all of you. thanx!
