Random J-Pop Update


First, about the video above: Urusei Yastura and I go a long way back. (That's right. I've got a 20-year-old cassette of Hirano Fumi singing Lum's song's too.) I was investigating Nana Kitade, and was just about to give up when I heard this little gem.

It's good to know that somebody else loves Bonnie Pink probably more than I do. (That's a lot of high grades!) But it's a promising starting point, and I'll have to see what else Lex recommends.

Bonnie Pink played at this year's Live Earth concert. I'm a sucker for a woman who can sing and play guitar (or bass (lest I neglect Aimee Mann)).

Edit: Removed a reference to a bad experience of mine. The internet can be a very dangerous place. Even YouTube can put you in a place you don't want to be. Tread carefully.

Edit: When I bought that UY music cassette in Japan, Nana Kitade hadn't been born yet. And here she's singing the opening theme...

"... Nana Kitade hadn't been born yet."

Dude, don't say things like that! You make me feel... like Roman Polanski or something.

No, wait. Like Errol Flynn. Yeah! Much cooler. And he could get away with it....

Yeah, that realization was a real wake-up call. I was in Japan during Ladera Travel's Japanimation tour in 1986. Almost a full year before she was born.

Urusei Yatsura is to Nana Kitade as I Love Lucy is to me.

    Good to see you checking in at LJ again, too. No, I'm not online anywhere like we used to be at LJ and Plurk. I really liked having a place where we could share our thoughts in a long-form post that…

    Good to "see" you checking in at LJ... and taking steps to preserve your LJ and Google+ histories!

    I "Searched" some of your archive looking for the fluorescent bulb post, but couldn't find it through 2009-02-06, and before that, LiveJournal no longer offers pages of your feed, just daily access,…

    Ha ha! How coincidental, I was thinking about light bulbs yesterday myself. One of my Instagram contacts mentioned that the EU regulates the types of light bulbs people can use in their homes in…
