Cocco’s YouTube channel recently hit 60,000 subscribers and in typical Cocco fashion she released a fun video to commemorate it. An interesting thing to note about her YouTube channel is that she directs her own music videos. So she’s basically writing her lyrics, writing her music, and directing her music videos! She’s so talented! If you… Continue reading Cocco’s YouTube Channel Hits 60,000 Subs
It would’ve been nice if I did a countdown to 200,000 hits and I was kinda surprised at how fast we reached it. Nifee deebitan (thank you, thank you, thank you) for checking us out!
[…] The parody group consists of the Yajima family, which is a 37-year-old mother named Margaret (played by Tunnels’ Noritake Kinashi), plus her 12-year-old daughter Strawberry (played by Tunnels’ Takaaki Ishibashi) and 18-year-old daughter Naomi (played by DJ OZMA). So far, the only known detail of the group’s history is that they came from Nevada… Continue reading Meisa Kuroki in Yajima Biyoshitsu movie
I quietly saw Karakui.com pass the 150,000 mark and now we’re over 166,000 hits. Yeah, we’re still a small blog covering the margins of the more popular Japanese pop culture scene but we’re not doing that shabby at all. If you’ve ever kept a blog, and you’re a geek, you’re probably into stats as well.… Continue reading On making 160,000+ hits
Veteran utasaa (Okinawan folk musician) Yasuo Yoshida has a new album out today titled “Jakai.” Yasuo-sensei is one of the most I’m-happy-to-be-in-the-background-kind of musicians I’ve ever met so I’m quite eager to listen to the album. Many of you who follow shimauta and O-pop (Okinawan pop music) will probably be familiar with his wife, Yasuko… Continue reading Yasuo Yoshida’s ‘Jakai’ hits stores on March 23rd
And here I was thinking of doing something special when we hit the 10,000 mark back in August ’07. We’re just about to reach 40,000 hits but I think I’ll shoot for 50,000 for the special giveaway(s). (I actually have a bunch of autographed CD albums from Keith Nakaganeku’s wonderful debut CD to give away… Continue reading Less than 50 hits to 40,000!
Perhaps the most anticipated CD debut (for Okinawan minyou) of the year is Tatsuya Shimabukuro’s “Tunugi” which is set to be released on March 12. Tatsuya’s “Tunugi” will contain 12 tracks including two that he composed the music for. The reasonably priced ¥2,500 album, from Campus Records’ Tundami label, will also feature the talents of… Continue reading Tatsuya Shimabukuro’s debut album ‘Tunugi’ hits stores on March 12!
Here’s wishing all of Karakui.com’s visitors a happy and safe holiday season. Nifee (thanks) to all of you for the 30,000 hits (well, we’re actually about 11 shy but what the hey) from December 2006 to December 2007. Not too shabby for an Okinawan pop culture blog. 🙂
We’re heading to the 20,000 hit mark much faster than expected and as much as a happy sign that is, I’m much happier to see that the current Top Click is from my “Show your support” post. (I’ve included it in this post [down below] in its entirety to keep the petition going to reach… Continue reading Less than 500 hits to 20,000!
I kinda skipped over announcing 7,000 and 8,000 and now we’re at 9,000 hits! Whoa. We’ve been reaching about a 1,000 or so hits a month so we’re ahead of schedule. Now I really gotta start thinking of something to do for our 10,000th hit. Nifee (thanks) for visiting! 😀
