Sitting Down with Tara (SHEawase)

Tara Muchmore
タラ・ムチュモレ
Sub-leader
SHEawase (SHEあわせ ) seems to be keeping itself busy this year. Working on their album, announcing a graduating member, holding an audition and finally --- presenting their newest member, Maxine Ortner. The group also recently reached a milestone of having more than 3000 likes in Facebook. If that wasn't enough, they are participating in the US Tour of NekoNeko Maid and Host Club!

For those who are new to the net idol fandom, SHEawase is an indie idol group composed of Melissa Shows, Tara Muchmore, Morgan Davis and Maxine Ortner.

If you don't know these girls, you should because these girls have set the bar high for indie idol groups everywhere.

While all the girls have a charm of their own, only Tara holds the title of the group's lovable redhead.

Farewell to the Cutest, Sayumi Michishige (Former Morning Musume'14)

Sayumi Michishige
道重さゆみ
Former Leader of Morning Musume'14
November 26th of 2014. 

I never thought I'd be so affected by a date before. Usually, I am very calm when my favorite idols graduate. For example, when Ai and Reina graduated, I wasn't so broken up about it. Aya Matsuura had already graduated when I became her fan, so I can't say graduations had ever been anything but something sweet to me.. It wasn't until this date that it hit me that this graduation was different.

There are those who admire Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus or Justin Bieber. I admire a girl from a group in Japan who had started at the back of the line.

Sayumi started my love for the female J-idol scene. Before I became a fan of  Perfume, ℃-ute and other J-idol groups, there was Morning Musume and in Morning Musume --- Sayumi caught my attention.

PENGOO Snow Cream: For a Birthday Ice Treat

Pengoo, the Penguin
Pengoo Snow Cream is a small, newly opened ice dessert shop located at the 2nd floor of Divisoria Archade, above Jonie's Chicken.

My friend, Eponine wanted to celebrate her birthday and she had heard about the place from a co-worker. She invited me to celebrate with her. I didn't quite know what to expect except I knew we would be having desserts because that was what she told me.

My first impression was that I found the restaurant itself very endearing with cartoons of their mascot, Pengoo everywhere from walls to tables. Pengoo is an original design made by whom I believe is one of the owner's friends.

The ambiance is fun and cute. It is a great place to go with your friends who want to try something new.

Sitting Down with Jenny (Former Oishii!Ichigo)

Jenny
Main Vocalist
Four of Spades
Jenny, or JenniDi is a former and pioneering member of the Oishii!Project and Oishii!Ichigo, an online collaboration of online performers and personalities making original idol music to fans.

However, earlier this year Jenny and four other members graduated from the project after being together as a group for two years and having participated in  two singles and one cover.

Known for her gorgeous voice, Jenny wasn't about to leave the music scene. Jenny returned to the online music scene in the form of her band, Four of Spades. The siblings collaborated this one time in order participate in a competition by 'the pillows' in honor of their 25th anniversary.

And what do you get when two musically talented siblings work together? In their case, a stroke of masterpiece.

As Oishii!Jenny, she was the cute and endearing redhead. With her new bleached blond bob, the new image she is sporting is much edgier than the Jenny we knew from the project.
