RECORD INDUSTRY WEASELS ATTACK! AKB48 and J-Pop YouTube Videos Region Blocked!

weasels zap_zappa21

You think I was kidding? Look at what the RECORD INDUSTRY WEASELS have done.

Civil Disobedience, 101!

(Denny imitating Homer Simpson) Now there are SOME people out there who might react to this and say that you should pirate as much media as you possibly can, and share as many illegal copies of copyrighted material as is possible. (Returns to normal voice) I cannot condone those actions, however — I truly feel the frustration.  There are those, even angrier than I am who may saynever pay for Jpop entertainment ever again — except for bootlegs on eBay and the like.”  Once again, I understand the frustration, although I do not support illegal activity. I don’t want the authorities to wrack their brains trying to figure out which laws to enforce, and which to not enforce.

I advise my readers to just don’t feed the weasels anymore.

Shinsui Itō: Japanese women in kimono. Which is your favorite color?

Shinsui Itō, in Japanese 伊東 深水 (1898-1972), was one of the great Japanese artists of the twentieth century. Arguably, traditional Japanese art entered into a decline after the introduction of photography, and the introduction of western artistic styles.  Under the name of Shinsui Itō, (his real name was Hajime Itō, in Japanese: 伊東 一), he continued to use the “old” style of Japanese woodblock print painting.

I like his work, because he often depicted Japanese women in a peaceful, yet sensuous manner. His depictions of beautiful Japanese women in kimono are the subject of my post today. Ahem … what a peaceful moment …

The Japanese government has declared his artwork to be a “national treasure”.
