Asian Kung-Fu Generation – Mada Minu Ashita Ni

Posted by Sandstorm in Reviews on March 15th, 2009.
Tags: , , , , , , ,

Asian Kung-Fu Generation has had quite a productive year in 2008. They recorded and published a very good album in March and later on released an additional mini-album (or EP) in June and a second concept album in November. I got the last two albums in November and listened to them a lot of times, and now, after nearly 5 months I’ve found the time to write the review for one of them: Mada Minu Ashita Ni

A few months ago I noticed that they’ve changed Azureus into Vuze, so I downloaded it again to test it. I can assure you that the name isn’t the only thing that changed…

Hitman Pro Anti-Spyware Combo

The downside of having a popular OS like Windows is that people make virusses and spyware for it. And because you generally don’t know if you’ve downloaded some spyware on your computer, you’ll need software to detect it, and to remove it. One of the best ways to do this is using “Hijack This”, but it is quite hard to use, so you probably want something more user friendly. The problem of the easier software is that most companies only offer some sort of a demo version for free, so you’ll need different programs to find all spyware. This is exactly what Hitman Pro offers.

The Japanese rock scene is a crowded one. Hundreds of bands make so-called Jrock and most of it is enormous crap. Luckily for us, there are some very good bands out there that really make good music. The best band is Asian Kung-Fu Generation and they’ve released their new album World World World.

While making this site, we felt the need for a favicon. So we needed an .ico file. Since photoshop and paint both can’t produce icon files, I began my search for a useful icon editor. After quick search on sourceforge, I found VariIcons, which looked quite nice, so I gave it a try.
