The wind has been knocked out of Denny’s sails, so he has not posted in several weeks. I have not even logged in for a couple of weeks (sorry). The weasels in the Japanese music industry have made it extremely hard to be a fan.
I don’t blame the artists, I don’t blame the girls – just the management dickweeds. (Well, that would describe 99% of the music industry in America too).
Thus, this is the dream I had: … as I approach the Japanese islands in my Black Ship … a lone Samurai (who looks a lot like Toshiro Mifune, by the way) is waving his sword on the beach and shouting (in English, oddly).
GET AWAY FROM HERE!!
THERE ARE NO “IDOLS” HERE!!!!
THERE ARE NO IDOLS … ONLY MULES!!!
… THAT’S RIGHT — WE ONLY HAVE MULES … GO AWAY!!!
IF YOU TRY TO LOOK AT ONE OF MY MULES I WILL CUT YOU DOWN!!!!!!
Ahem … needed some coffee after that…
Still, I can’t help but “fanboy” all over the delightful Miss Iwasa Misaki-san. Here she is on that Japanese variety TV show. I don’t know the same of it, all I know is that she is a frequent guest, and often sings “Enka” ballads while she wears an amazingly beautiful kimono.
Well, she is not wearing a kimono here, but she sings this wonderful “traditional” Japanese song.
Note the junior high kids from that popular anime about the junior high school band “Hibike! Euphonium” are there — IN REAL LIFE!
Well, there will probably not be a Christmas song from Miss Iwasa, so this will have to do. I think it has a very “holiday” feel. Please enjoy!
Happy Holidays if I don’t see you …
Starlight: Lots of parenthesis!
