WHAT IT BE This is a Chinese music rotation journal with a bit of a twist. It focuses on offering Mandarin music with English translations. Because that means it is rather labor intensive, only 3 songs or so will be featured per week; the translations will also be posted in chinesesongs. However, I will also frequently offer bonus downloads. These songs might be English, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Cantonese, or anything! WHO DOES IT I'm a white, American, 20-year-old girl. My personal LJ is dustthouart and my Chinese diary is xiaowai. I go by lots of nicknames, but the most common is joye. I have been studying Mandarin for four years, but it is not my native language. I am still learning so mistakes are very possible. HOW TO GET IN ON IT zwmp3v1 was friends only. zwmp3v2 is public. All you need to do is comment to tell me if you're downloading. I also love to hear your impressions of the music. Requests are open, but my playlist is not ready yet. No hotlinking! Have fun and tell all your friends XD
OTHER STUFF I also run a community for people of non-Asian heritage who love Asian STUFF (in general, or some aspect like music, language or whatever). Go have a look at ljeggs!
