This was Sunday's "Season" column in the Asahi Newspaper. A poem by Kamo no Mabuchi (賀茂真淵).

橘のもとに道ふみゆきかへりもとつひとにもあひにけるかも

真淵は江戸時代半ば、今の静岡県浜松の人。四十歳にして郷里を出て江戸の人になった。この歌は久しぶりに帰郷したおりの歌のようだ。橘の花咲く道を行って帰り、また君と再会できた。香り高い橘の花は遠い昔から追憶を誘う花だった。

I thought the explanation was beautiful. I'm going to be going home (briefly) soon, where I will proceed to buy up all the Cadbury's Flakes and mead. That's where my flowering road leads.




I went to the butcher near our house for the first time today. I should have gone sooner, since the meat was really cheap and high quality. I just have a fear of smaller shops/restaurants just because I've had so many experiences of being thrown out of them in the past.




Kuroshitsuji news

In other news, Velvet Network radio looks like it's going on hiatus for a bit from the next episode.




Went to Machine Magic (monthly gothic-industrial event) and was surprised to see a clip from it up later at JGoth. I imagine the guy recording it was one of the people I was speaking to. Anyway, I saw Psydoll, Neurotic Doll and Custom Mummy.

Darkest Fest - June 13th
Club Walpurgis - June 19th
Goth Bar Heaven - June 25th
Midnight Mess - June 26th

I'm sure I won't be going to all of these though... Definitely Walpurgis though and one of either Midnight Mess or Goth Bar Heaven. Anyone else want to come?




I talked about the auditions earlier... looks like I made it! I was surprised so I didn't really hear the casting director's description of my character (I think he said the character was Phillip(s), so either a new character or I misheard). Pretty sure it's minor and non-speaking though and I guess more-or-less everyone got in. But still, I'm very excited about this!

Thank you very much to umbrellaofdoom for posting the audition details.
