Atelier Muji


I was in Ginza this past Friday (recorded a new episode of TOKYO BOY, which will be up later today) and of course stopped by Muji Yurakucho. The current exhibition at Atelier Muji had to do with stitching, and you had all these children-sized t-shirts mounted on a wall. Here’s another shot from inside the gallery.

Lapnet Ship


While the Foret building is closed for renovations, the Lapnet Ship gallery has moved down the street (coming from Omotesando, turn left before you get to Foret). The current show covers the Nintendo DS game ANIMAL CROSSING, but I didn’t have time to go in have a look (you had to register or something at the entrance before going in). I imagine there must be some sort of downloadable content, as there was a girl crouched down just outside, DS in hand.

Radio OK Fred 08

Back from the dead — episode 08 of RADIO OK FRED is now up! If you subscribe to the feed, then you should already have it, if not, here’s a direct link (and you can get previous episodes here).

The biggest change is that this is the first time we record directly to Garageband (previously, it was done through a mixer live), and as you’ll notice, we’re still experimenting with the levels — the voices are too low (which we only realized later when editing everything down). We can’t record them again since my co-hosts have left for France and we won’t be able to record another show for a month, but I thought best to put it up now, and then hopefully we should have the recording volume settled by the time we do another episode.

Remote-Controlled Robot


What you see here is by far the most fun I’ve ever had at the KDDI Designing Studio. I wrote a post about it on Gridskipper yesterday, and here’s a Flickr photoset I put up (and I talk about playing with the robot in my most recent TOKYO BOY podcast).

Swedish Style 2006

There’s finally some info out there regarding this year’s edition of Swedish Style. It’s a bit longer this time, happening November 1-15 (the opening party is November 3), and the theme this year is “paradise.”

Me and Jesper have already started planning for another event this year, again to take place at Cafe Pause.
