kawase tomoko

Seen And Heard

Been listening to Tommy Heavenly6 lately. Been enjoying it, especially "Hey My Friend," which more than anything else on the (eponymous) album reminds me of The Brilliant Green.

Saw 下妻物語 (Shimotsuma Monogatari, "Story of Shimotsuma") Sunday night. It's the story of a Loli (? -- not sure, whatever you call the people who dress up in rediculously frilly crap) and a Yanki (a member of one of those juvenile scooter gangs that terrorize -- er, annoy -- people in Japan) who become friends in the middle of BFE Ibaraki (i.e., Shimotsuma) and the insane adventures that ensue. It's completely over-the-top and hilarious, and something that I seriously doubt will ever be released in the U.S. But the thing that most surprised me about it is that the soundtrack is Tommy Heavenly6, "Hey My Friend" being the song most prominent.

I like 川瀬智子 (Kawase Tomoko) bunches.

Oh, and the movie was pretty good, too.

Edit: yes, I added the icon retroactively. New icon seems much more appropriate than the old one.
