F.I.R. has not released an album nor filmed a MV in 2 years. When they went to Yang Ming Mount to film their [We Are] MV, the weather was quite cold. Faye, who was wearing thin layers, recalled all her memories from past MVs: “Female stars are so unlucky.”
The trio’s new album [Rang Wo Men Yi Qi Wei Xiao Ba/Let’s Smile Together] will be released on Christmas Day, the 25th. Amidst the breakup rumors, F.I.R.’s first title song [We Are] dispels such rumors and states once again that “We are F.I.R.” Their record company invited up-and-coming director Chen Ying Zhi to direct the MV and spent much money to create a exotic environment on Yang Ming Mount. This song is a combination of English rock and a dreamy tone. It is a song to satisfy fans’ relentless wait of 2 years.
Before filming, F.I.R. was very excited. But during filming, they got to the site at 4 am in the morning. The temperature was below 10º Celsius. Faye, who wore a thin long dress, shivered while complaining: “Female stars are quite unlucky. They always have to wear thin layers. Can someone sew on some sleeves for me?”
The director dug a big hole, creating a huge white-colored entrance to the hole. He asked F.I.R. to climb from the hole in order to depict a rebirth. Faye, who wore the long dress and high heels, found it hard to move. She almost fell directly into the hole. But as she looked at the beautiful scenery in front of her, she said: “It feels like I’m in Canada.” As the sun set, the entire crew went to Riverside Park. The director created a snow setting; many people who were exercising in the park were curious. In the short 10 minutes of filming, the fake snow cost about 300,000 TWD. But the results were beyond satisfactory. The trio anticipates the reactions from their fans.

Crowd Lu appeared as special guest on WAHSBBT a few days ago. During one of the segments, Blackie asked Crowd how he managed to reach the high note in “好想要揮霍” (Hao Xiang Yao Hui Huo), Crowd explained that singing high notes is like squeezing the last bit of toothpaste out from the tube. Both Ye Shou and Louis (Xiao Lu) tried their best, but “that last bit of toothpaste just couldn’t be squeezed out,” Blackie joked.
Crowd and Wen Zi performed the dance that Crowd made up himself (which is widely available on the net), and the girls kept shouting, “So cute! So cute!” And Apple even called Crowd, “Xiao Ke Ai (little cutie, which is another nickname for bra),” making Crowd a little embarrassed.

Damn, it sounds like he's losing his voice :(
Veteran Chinese singer Anson Hu is releasing his latest album for an all-Asia release on December 8. In order to promote his latest album, Anson met with the media in Shanghai and approached them with his “resignation letter.” Initially startling the media after the release of his new song directly translated as “Unemployment Love Song”, they soon discovered it was only a cover of his disc printed as a “resignation letter.” The media was not alone in falling victim to the publicity stunt, as the boss of Anson’s music label was also startled by the stunt as well.
In regards to the debut song off his new album, Anson said that he wrote the song in regard to the financial crisis striking Asia. The crisis, which affected his friends and former classmates, with some being unemployed and others losing not just their jobs but also their relationships, drove Anson by impulse to write a song about it. He wanted to share their similar experiences with people through the song so that they can gain the strength to persevere.
In addition to releasing his new track off his new album, Anson also filmed for its MV. Shot mostly in the business district of Neihu, the filming locations overlooks the district’s famed Miramar Entertainment Park shopping mall and carousel, the streets of its various office building locations, as well as sight of the skyscrapers of downtown Taipei off in the distance that can be seen from Neihu.
