Excellent post! (-if you'll still accept a compliment from me) Personal, conversational, optomistic, interesting and uniquely yours.
I've been a big Takako Minekawa fan for years, and was a Cornelius fan as well, up to a "Point", but I had no idea that they were a couple, nor that they had a child, nor that Keigo-san had a new record out. And it's unlikely that I ever would've discovered Qoogle Clippers if you hadn't referenced it here (what's with the Japanese and the word "clipper"--as in Capsule's new CD? It's not like it's an easy word for them to say!).
Yes, I noticed some subtle textural references in your post, and even perhaps a political subtext here or there--all of which I happily accept in the name of learning new things from your experiences and observations that _don't_ necessarily involve polemics. And so, I can now go to sleep a happy man.
