As expected, The Cure 40th Anniversary concert, is sold out.
Planned for July 7 in Hyde Park. Had considered going there, but obviously did not do enough to plan and purchase a ticket.
Flew back from SFO to HND on Thursday (PST). About 3 hours into the flight, announcement asking for a doctor or nurse to assist in a medical emergency.
This requested was repeated several times, with Cabin attendants running back and forth.
About half way over the Pacific, the pilot announced we will land in Anchorage due to the medical emergency.
Flew back (1.5hours) to Anchorage, medical team boarded the plane, took the patient and it took several more hours to fuel, get approval for revised flight plans.
Landed in Haneda at about 1AM, 6 hours after the planned schedule. As there are no public transportation at this time, we received a commitment to repay expense up to 10,000 yen.
Now, what I did not write in this post is the emotions and feelings during the flight, medical team boarding the flight and result.
As we were leaving the plan, a foreign (American?) woman, stopped and hugged several of the cabin attendants with tears filling their eyes.
I hope I will not forget this.
Interesting article from Pitchfork.
As it happens, I was 26, and one of the years I invested a lot of my time and money to listening to music.
For me, the Chemical brothers and Radiohead are the top two and still shine after 20 years.
Also interesting is that I just noticed that Mogwai’s cover has “Fuji Bank” (Fuji Ginko) on it. The bank does not longer exist and this blog post tracks the location of the photo.
The movie “Your Name” was on TV during the new year vacation and attracted a lot of attention and sponsors.
As I am not a big fan of Manga and Anime, I will ignore the movie and story.
What was mostly interesting for me are the TV Commercials that were created especially for the time slots.
The CM that shined in my opinion was from Softbank:
Using my Brompton Bicycle very often.
During my vacation, I travel to different locations in Tokyo (by Train), and cycle around there. Besides enjoying the scenery and good food (which of course I plan ahead where to eat), I really enjoy the experience.
Unfortunately, I realized I don’t take enough photos during these trip.
The following are the two only photos I took from my Asakusa (浅草）area tour.
Bought Brompton P6R.
Ordered them last week and got them on Saturday. Was thinking of riding them half way and take the train, but ended up riding all the way home.
Maybe I am stating the obvious, but riding a bicycle is better than riding the train. Found interesting places, parks, beautiful streets.
The only question is, how often will I use them and make sure they are maintained well.
