[D.C. Untied 2.11-12] D.C. United vs Christos FC, June 13, 2017 and Toronto FC vs. D.C. United, June 17, 2017

Last year my brother and I attended the fourth round midweek Open Cup game at the Soccerplex and watched the D.C. United reserves fall to NASL’s troubled Fort Lauderdale Strikers in penalty kicks. Jared Jeffrey walking to the furthest, darkest corner of the field and collapsing after missing the final attempt utterly broke my heart. But that weekend they--and I--picked up and flew to Houston where we drew the Dynamo 0-0 in a hot, humid, rain delayed nail biter of a match. United’s season would veer downwards through July before making a U-turn and going on a tear through late summer into fall.

[D.C. Untied 2.10] D.C. United vs LA Galaxy, June 3, 2017

Writing these game day posts has been difficult for the last six weeks or so because I honestly don’t really need to re-live this string of scoreless games. As Jason from the Filibuster podcast says, it’s best to just adopt a striker’s mindset. Forget the misses and keep focused on the next chance.


[Five Years of A.B.C-Z #1] Za ABC〜5stars〜 (Part 2 of 2)

(CONTINUED FROM PART 1)

A.B.C-Z, as they explain themselves in the Making & Special Interview included on this DVD single, are five very different talents or “stars”, more powerful united than apart. 

And much like the group itself, their debut single is kind of an odd duck.

[Five Years of A.B.C-Z #1] Za ABC〜5stars〜 (Part 1 of 2)

I’ve written about A.B.C-Z before (and their excellent mini-series where they play superheroes who can’t ever have sex or their powers vanish) but in their 5th anniversary year as a “debuted” act I am compelled to do so again. This time I’m hoping to make a complete review of their music catalog to date.

For the first post, I've broken the review into two parts to accommodate a bit of historical discussion but moving forward I should be able to contain myself to one post per item.

Item: 「Za ABC〜5stars〜」
Type: DVD Single
Release Date: 2012.02.01

Contents:
1. 「Za ABC〜5stars〜」 Music Clip
2. 「砂のグラス」 Dance Clip

The story has been told and told again but here’s one more crack at it:

Note from Filmi Girl:

I love Bollywood - and all the ridiculous things that happen in Bollywood - but it doesn't mean that I can't occasionally make fun of various celebrities and films.

If you don't like my sense of humor, please just move on by - Trolls are not appreciated and nasty comments will be deleted.
