For those of you interested in this sort of thing, I’ve recently taken up twittering — I’m late, I know — and you can follow my feed here.
I just wanted to clear something up, since I’ve gotten some mail about it — following this post, and a post I wrote on Game|Life. The version of Arcade Mania now on sale at Amazon Japan is indeed in English, and is the exact same edition that will be released worldwide in January.
This week is not just about the release of Arcade Mania, it also sees my wife’s first publication in a research journal (not counting university journals). My wife, Yuko, has had an article based on her current research published in the current issue (No. 8) of The Bulletin of China Studies (Chugoku Kenkyu Ronso). The […]
You know all that cool stuff you’re used to seeing on PingMag? Now you’ll actually be able to buy some of it, thanks to the launch of ShopPingMag! The site only launched last week, but already it’s filled with very “ping” products — they even have a “PingPicks” section — and you can expect the […]
Shantell Martin just never seems to stop. Next up, her very own DVD, Koob’s, which covers the artist doing what she does best: creating. It comes out in November, but you can already pre-order it from this page, which also includes a video preview.

My good friend Patrick had his turn as DJ last night in Koenji at the “Tokyo Boys Bravo” event, and he’s posted his set list. Looks like I need to try and get him to do something at Cafe Pause next.
Uniqlo comes out with a new fancy flash-based web promotion, this time called “Dry in Motion.” I don’t really understand it, but it sure looks cool.
