yuki sohma the rat from furuba

Before Puffy Ami Yumi...

...there was Shonen Knife,among the first Japanese bands to hit it big in the states.By accident,I found their second album,Let's Knife at Barnes and Noble yesterday...

Speaking of J-music,I nailed Aya Hisakawa's first full-length album from an eBay Buy It Now listing...

Speaking of seiyuu,happy birthday to Yayoi Takato Nia Yukari Tamura;and since it's almost tomorrow(the 28th)in Japan,happy 21st birthday to Renton Thurston Ami Koshimizu's newlywed Yuuko Sanpei...

Speaking of Japan,my mom happened to have the TV on a Tokyo episode of Globe Trekker during dinner.Couldn't quite catch the whole episode since it was already midway through the episode.Then again,if my dad didn't openly express disgust at her choice of programs(i.e.,crime reality shows including Dateline's To Catch a Predator),I probably would have completely missed one of Globe Trekker's best episodes...

Though I'm not generally into the Oscars,it would have been something if Rinko Kikuchi won her nomination...
