jeansnow.net

The big news today is that my new domain, jeansnow.net, is finally up and running. If you had the site bookmarked, please change the address to the new one.

Also, I unfortunately was not able to put a new pic yesterday on the site because of lack of time (and energy). My good friend Torahito, in town from Hong Kong for business, gave me a visit and we spent most of the evening at an izakaya (Japanese style bar where you can eat an enormous selection of small dishes while drinking) nearby. It was really good to see him, and I’m already looking forward to returning to Hong Kong to repay the visit.

A Quiet Week

It’s been a quiet week. Money is low, so I’m not going out much. I’m also not taking a lot of pictures, which I must remedy quickly. I’m just getting a bit tired of shooting random things, so I think I’m going to start thinking up themes to shoot. Whatever I end up doing, the result will end up here, as well as in my TOKYO BOY picture log at The OPi8 Forum. I also think that it’s about time I get work done on a second issue of my GEISHA e-zine. I took the first issue offline, and I’ll be changing the interface a bit before putting it back up, probably sometime this week. In the meantime, please check out my good friend Jesper Larssen’s TEEZINE, which can be found on his Teefactory website. Go in the Swedish section and you should find it quickly. You can also download a bigger PDF version. You could also try creating a t-shirt for the Teefactory and LOUNGE.72.COM contest.

The following are the records that are on heavy rotation on my iPod:

DJ Shadow – PRIVATE PRESS
The White Stripes – WHITE BLOOD CELLS
Mansfield – MANSFIELD POPP
Sweet Robots Against the Machine – TOWA TEI
Mari Natsuki – LA PAROLE

LOGO

I just watched a great program on BBC World called LOGO. It takes a look at commercial culture in all its extremes. The show I saw at segments covering subjects such as demonstrator training camps, the Hello Kitty obsession, the way to sell soap, and France versus McDonald’s. Reminds me that I’ve been wanting to read Naomi Klein’s NO LOGO for a while now, and I really should get around to it sometime soon.

Momus

Momus, who is presently based in Tokyo, is hard at work on a new album, tentively titled OSKAR TENNIS CHAMPION, and he’s writing a log of the creation process, which should be updated weekly. It definitely makes for interesting reading.
