I’ve been meaning to posting about the lovely Fumika Hideshima (秀島 史香) a number of times before, but I just never got around to it. She is my absolute favorite radio DJ in Japan right now. You can hear her daily on J WAVE 81.3, she has a show called GROOVE LINE which is on every weekday from 4 PM to 8 PM.
Just listen to the show once and you’ll understand why I adore her so much! That husky voice is just out of this world! When I first heard her, I imagined her to be much older and not so cute; so I was quite shocked when I saw her photo:
Well, apparently she just had her birthday (9th of October…sorry I missed it!) so I would like to wish her a very Happy Birthday!! I shall always remain your loyal fan!
Oh, she keeps an online diary too, but it’s only in Japanese.
[EDIT] I had to double-post this, and delete the original entry because some double-byte characters ended up in the permalink, causing all sorts of trouble!
Well, after digging a bit more on the Internet about this phenomena which mostly goes under the name “The Shining, Redux”, i.e. the recutting of a Shining trailer to make it look like a romantic comedy or a coming-of-age drama (see my earlier post, below) I found out a little bit more.
The competition is AICE’s (Association of Independent Commercial Editors) annual “Trailer Park” contest.
I don’t know for sure if these entries from Moondog Design are for the same competitionor if theybecause they have separate competitions for different AICE offices.
Anyway, go to the Moondog link above, click Paul Lacalandra and click the image which says “ordinary girls…” – that is his remade trailer for Parent Trap (remade to ‘Apparent Trap’). Further, there is another one if you click on Vincent Garguilo and then click on the image with the hand – that is his version of Titanic (not the same Titanic as shown below).
I’d love to see more of these entries, as well as past competitions’ entries as well!!
[EDIT] I guess the whole world knows this already, but I just wanted to add to my statement above, that, “The Apparent Trap” in fact was the runner-up in the same competition as The Shining, i.e. The AICE New York office.
Well, this is simply brilliant. This is the trailer for “The Shining, Redux” so to speak. A post-production house arranged an in-house competition where the challenge was to create a trailer for a famous movie and make it seem like a *totally* different movie. The winner is the trailer posted below.
So what was originally something along the lines of this:
Becomes a happy coming-of-age story like this:

[EDIT] After some searching I found two more entries into this competition; West Side Story and Titanic. I haven’t watched them yet, though – but the “Scary Titanic” description sounds interesting! Click here for more info.
After soom googling I found out that she is lipsyncing (or karaokeing, or making a fool of herself; whatever you want to call it) to Go To Prom Anyways! by Jesse Buy Nothing. The best bit is when what I think is her grandmother comes in and dances in the background! Hilarious!
You go girl! Way to make “fool of the year 2005” !
