As you can tell by the still updated daily pics, yes, I am still alive, but I just haven’t been into spending a lot of time in front of the computer these few days because of my illness. I’m finally better now, and actually went to work today, so things are looking up. I just hate getting sick, and I’m definitely the worst sick person in the world.
The next TOKYO BOY update will be tomorrow, as usual, and will contain some pics that have showed up on this site this week, as well as new ones. I’ll also talk a bit more about the my Resfest experience, which I really did enjoy (and I’m really, really thankful that I only started getting sick the day after).
Also, this week as seen a few good Japanese releases on the music side of things. Thanks to my good friend Patrick, this is what I’m listening to right now:
Fantastic Plastic Machine – “Why Not?”
New single by FPM. Although in general I’m not as big a fan of FPM’s more recent output, I’m enjoying this single (which includes 4 new tracks). Reminds a lot of Towa Tei’s Sweet Robots Against the Machine stuff.
Mansfield – GOLDEN HOUR
A remix album of a lot of stuff from his MANSFIELD POPP album, which was released earlier this year. Includes a nice cover of Beck’s “New Pollution”.
Various Artists – JAMES BROWN ULTIMATE REMIXES
Haven’t listened to this one much yet, but includes remixes by Yasuharu Konishi, FPM, Cornelius and other Japanese artists.
Also listening to:
Katerine – 8e CIEL
New album by Philippe Katerine. Includes a very wacky video of him performing in drag as a young girl.
