Should I get excited?
Release is expected March 2nd, with only two songs released. I like “Wait in the Car” better than “All Nerve”, but I definitely missed Kim Deal’s voice and Bass.
Hope I don’t get disappointed.
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.
While I enjoyed most of “The Sinner”, and definitely liked the atmosphere and acting, the last two chapters left me really frustrated.
Totally agree with the comments in “What Started our Strong ended All Wrong” .
While in 5 or 6 chapters we are dragged into a dark world of uncertainty. Of mystery, we are left with a simple story with huge holes in the plot.
Want to add some more frustrations:
My Nakaya Fountain pen has disappeared.
Have no idea how and when, but could not find it in my bag this morning.
Either I lost it while taking out something else in my bag, or stolen.
A strong feeling of loss and disbelief.
If stolen, how possible and where. In a Cafe where I was working ? Is it possible ?
If lost, how did it happen?
Anyway, it is gone.
As much I enjoyed it, the loss is strong, so I don’t think I will buy a replacement.
