It’s been three years since Ma Tianyu 马天宇 has released any new music; his last EP Soliloquize 自言自宇 was in 2010. And as we all know from previousexperiences, Ma Tianyu love surprising us with new concepts in his music video. In this music video for Bystander 世界之外 Ma Tianyu dyed his hair blond.
Ma Tianyu kept himself busy during these past three years filming dramas such as Xuan Yuan Sword 轩辕剑之天之痕, Young Detective Dee 少年神探狄仁杰, Legend of the Ancient Sword 古剑奇谭, a time-traveling wuxia drama The Duet 四手妙弹, and a republic era Shanghai drama by Han Xue Workshop Ladies Home 淑女之家, (Han Xue 韩雪/Chen Xiang 陈翔/Mao Xiaotong 毛晓彤) just to name a few.
Another brand new year is almost upon us… which means a brand new Take Happiness Home (把乐带回家) microfilm, AKA Pepsi Annual Cpop All-Star New Year Commercial.

Below is the theme song for this year’s microfilm, featuring Harlem Yu (庾澄庆), Huang Xiaoming (黄晓明), Ai Fei (艾菲), and Pepsi’s newest spokespersonMomo Wu (吴莫愁).
I just want to take a small poll of Music Monday. I know there aren’t many cpop focused sites out there and Cfensi mostly concentrate on mainland entertainment. But since TW and HK cpop is a huge part of cpop, would you guys like me to cover some TW and HK cpop in next year’s Music Monday? I don’t follow HK music scene at all (mostly because I don’t speak Cantonese), but if you guys want I can look into it once in a while…
Music Monday will probably be a biweekly post in the new year. (15 videos in this post) Continue reading →

I thought I would never get drunk
Falling into this feeble defense
Chewing up those self-righteous dreams
Swallowing up the city’s petty lies
I thought I was flying high
I forgot that I was falling down
I need to shut my troublesome mouth
Hugging my stable legs for support
Let the rain pound against my face
Shaming this sinister mind
Never a follower
I must follow my own route
How can I care about these tiny injuries
I am not afraid of walking alone in the dark
Loneliness allows me to hear my inner voice
I buried my youth on this uneven road
I am willing – I accept
The sin of self-righteousness
