Marty Friedman spoke at the MIDEM last 29 January 2012. He ran a workshop on J-Pop for Music Publisher's Association of... Continue reading

Arashi donate 300 million yen to disaster areas Ever wondered what happened with the proceeds from the Nippon no Arashi book and the Waku Waku Gakkou Charity Event?

I am jealous~ Ohno's drawings should be interesting to see. ^^
So apparently paid apps are not available in my country... yet. If anyone is in the same predicament, can you still get the J-web access by paying the monthly fee? More importantly, are you able to pay the fee in the first place? ^^;; List of countries with paid app availability: I am currently trying. My sister got one of the Samsung Galaxy series Android phone the other day, so I'm testing the app with hers first before buying my own. ;P Downloading and installing the app is fine. Just the paying bit... Will have to spend more time with the app to see if I can actually pay the fee. Trying to work out where to register the credit card stuff. Maybe gonna try on English apps first or something. Yeah, I am a total Android noob. For now, I'm being cautious and pessimistic. If I can't pay the apps, how can I pay for anything else? ^^;; How annoying~ Anyway, unless your iPhone is running Android, I don't think the app would work on regular iPhone? Please correct me if I'm wrong. ^^ Checking the reviews for the app at Android market... Maybe more people should leave suggestions for an English version or something. (Unless the app is intended for Japan only and we might get screwed if it was found that international users have access to it too. Although I don't think this is likely the case.)
