Some songs I heard via podcasts and liked:

Plastic World by Colony 5, Genozide by Funker Vogt, Just Like Me by Combichrist (NSFW), Panic Rev by Iris, Super Crush by Distorted Reality and Gothic Pussy by EXT!ZE (NSFW).

After work on Friday, I walked to Tokyo Midtown to have a look at their illuminations. They were far better than I expected and I'll probably have a blog post about them sooner or later. Today, I walked to Goutokuji. The kami there are famous for lieking teh kitties, so I went to pray at the big giant cat.

Oh wow, I'm really excited about the Showa Monogatari anime! I love the Showa era.

I think the picture they have on their splash page is 'natsukashii', but I can't explain why. It makes me feel strange looking at it.

It's very natsukashii despite me not having grown up in Showa 39. I guess in a way the Showa Era, particularly the end of it, is to us like what the "Good Ol' Fifties" was for the baby boomers of America?

It must be something like that. I guess that the Showa Era doesn't look too different from the same time in my own country.

Nah, I don't know. Something about Showa triggers off a "wow, what an amazing long-lost time... THAT YOU WEREN'T EVEN THERE FOR" feeling.
