This Is the One

she’s one of the biggest names in japanese pop.  only reason i know this is because my sister used to follow the whole k-pop scene and found some other names along the way only to realize she was j-pop.  well, she’s hit it mainstream and is producing her first english album and got some big producers to help her out.  her first single is typical urban pop sounding but if you’ve heard other songs before then you’d know her english accent wasn’t that great.  so she’s really worked on her phoenetics when she sings so that was impressive.  she also got rid of this weird vibrato thing she does.

anyway, here’s her vid.

in other crap, this is my golf ramble.

man, don’t got much else content going on except that i fixed my wrist problem on my golf swing.  it helps with relaxing in my followthrough.  my backside of my left hand is now facing my target with my hand loosely gripping the club and i bring my following down into that position therefore keeping my wrist relaxed and not tense.  i win.  i basically saw the potential of the loft i always expected with my 5 and 7 iron.  it was pretty nice.  not to mention borrowing clubs that have a smaller cavity back kinda helped.  what i liked to see was with my irons that i was getting a soft bounce where it landed as opposed to just a ball that keeps rolling.  that means better accuracy and that i’m getting the right push off the ball.  it’s all about where you put the divot as well as your downswing in how much spin you want on the ball.  the more you cut it, the more backspin you’ll put it.  i’m starting to see the relation to tennis is finding the type of spin you want on the ball to get the type of shot you want.

i’m nowhere where i think i am by typing all this but it’s cool to see progress.  i’m sure the next time i go out, i’ll overthink it all and resume hitting like crap.  just remember, you should be making contact with the ball before the iron makes contact with ground to create the divot.  that’s what forces the trajectory that you desire with certain clubs.

i’m so focused on my mid-range irons that i’m neglecting any use of the wedges and practicing those on the short game but i’m just trying to learn a consistent swing then i’ll explore some more.  using the driver just requires a good core so your swing has power in it’s flight without trying to use your arms for power.  it’s all about a strong windup and fast club speed.  i see how it’s a life sport.  you can’t do anything but perfect the craft.
