Photo taken during one of the rare times when I’m able to sit down with my corset (which kinda looks like samurai armor, by the way). Doctor said yesterday that I need to be spending pretty much all my time on my back, and only put on the corset when absolutely necessary, and that for […]
Some lovely Néojaponisme badges courtesy of Ian, the site’s creative director.
I was really upset that I had to miss last week’s Néojaponisme joint at the SO+BA gallery — it was to be my first DJ stint, dammit — but I am glad to hear that it turned out to be a great NJ lovefest. And now time to point you to the site today for […]
Amusement has put up a few page layouts from its latest issue (5), and it’s looking like another terrific one. I know that Abdel, the magazine’s editor-in-chief, was in town for a bit, working on pieces for the issue, so I’m sure there’s plenty of excellent Tokyo/Japan-related content to enjoy.

Nice to see some of Josh Lieberman‘s photos appear in last month’s issue (July 2009) of Commercial Photo. Josh is an architectural photographer I met earlier this year when he attended an edition of PauseTalk.
As a follow-up to JJ‘s “Second Life and the Future of the Music Industry” exhibition from earlier this year, he’s put together a site that looks at what was covered in the show. He also wrote a piece on the project in last month’s issue of J@pan Inc.
I am very, very tempted by this: Bandai’s Jibun Damashii, a made-to-order figure that uses a photo you send for the face, at a cost of 13,650 yen. It was shown at last week’s International Tokyo Toy Show. Via Japan Today.
