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.

why would you have been thrown out of the shops? Do they dislike foreigners?

Some of them do, yeah.

You're more than welcome! I'm so glad that I've got another friend getting involved with TIP, because they're some of the coolest people I met outside of the whole myu-universe that I got sucked into in Japan. :D I have a feeling the show is going to be really cool looking, because a few of the regulars with the company have been learning silk aerials (think Cirque De Soleil stuff) and I from the audition call, it sounds like they're wanting it to have that look to it. :D

Congrats again. :)

Wow... I guess that's why they wanted to know if we were scared of heights or claustrophobic on the audition form. I wonder what I'll be doing, since I obviously can't dance or act. I'm calling myself 'stage meat' until I know for sure. :-)

Lol, just be open minded. They obviously thought you could do something, because you got in, right? They won't make you do anything you can't do, but you'll probably be amazed at what they manage to get you doing! :D
