Tokyo Big Sight

Tokyo big sight always looks to me like a pilgrimage place in the morning. People flocking in, the design of the building.

“Israel says”

Not stating any political opinion, but find it odd the way news sites reports about Israel.

CNN has world news:

“Iran’s economy dealt massive blow by trump”

“Rockets fired at Israel from Syria, Israel Says”

The “Israel Says” part is surprising. Wasn’t this verified with independent resources? Has Israel ever lied or fabricated such news ?

Just another reminder that news and history are subjective.

 

Radiohead Lift cover – Kettles

Found the Kettles through their “Heart of Glass” Cover and found an interesting band of two members, Drums and Guitar.

Love their most recent cover, “Lift” by Radiohead.  Actually, “Cover” is a not the fitting word here as the music is copied, but the lyrics are different.

When Radiohead Lyrics are about being in a safe place, isolated when it is time to come home, Kettles Lyrics are about a new start. Similar in a way, but different.

もう走れない靴で歩いてた

I walked in shoes that cannot run

ずっと曇ってる空が続いてる

Cloudy days continue

 

ついにさよならを告げる時が来た

何もかも捨ててしまえば

朝は来る

Time to say goodbye, throw away
Morning is coming

もう二度と嘘はつかずに生きていたい

そっと休めてた羽を広げて

この空を飛び回ろう

Want to live a life without lies, spread my wings and fly

朝を迎えて そして

新しい日々が始まる

振り向かずに

Facing a new morning, new days are coming.

Not looking back

Hedda Gabler – ヘッダ ガブラー

Saw yesterday the play Hedda Gabler at Bunkamura Cocoon theater.

It has been a while since I went to see a play, especially in Japanese.

Obviously missed a few words here and there, but luckily (?!) actors speak clearly, so it was not that difficult for me to understand.

Terajima Shinobu was great, but also enjoyed the stage design, the See-Through Mirror which is used twice in the play. First Scene and last Suicide Scene. The colors and light coming from the windows.

It is good to remember how a good play is much better than a movie.

Less important to mention, I was the only foreigner in the theater, many people watched me, none approached.

 

 

A Photo a day

Trying to get back to Photography, so will try to take and post a photo per day.

Not only taking a photo, but also editing it and posting it takes time. So I hope this will “make me” put more effort and though into it.

 

First one:

Hiring requirements at Preferred Networks

Bumped into this Blog post and wanted to share :

 

Researchers must be seitsu (精通, “familiar with” in Japanese) all aspects of computer science.” We have always had this requirement since the times of PFI because we truly believe in the importance of having a deep knowledge of not just one specific branch but various areas when doing research on computer science.

The field of computer science is making rapid progress and we must always pursue its advancement
