Re: yay Kurt Weil

Even with my high-key palette, when I first visited Japan, I felt rather drab compared to all the bright colors natives wore (at least in Shibuya, Omotesando, Nakameguro, etc.). However, in subsequent visits, I've noticed that -- just as Momus points out -- the colors of the young Tokyo-ite's clothing and accessories have become more subdued.

I'll be back in Tokyo this Wednesday, and the clothing I've packed is intentionally a bit more neutral -- perhaps I'll finally fit in! (er, as much as a blond, 6'3" gaijin ever could).

Thanks for the wishes, W!

Please -- no apologizes for mannequinizing me; I'm flattered. And I get mistaken for a fruit all the time (not that I mind).

Re: yay Kurt Weil

I definitely need to check out Philly if it's anything like that. NYC is great for a lot of stuff, but since everything is like this brutal competition, you either compete 100% with everyone around you or you just don't do anything at all. It doesn't foster playfulness or casual, imaginative fun, though there are definitely cool people here and there (who pretty much have the same complaints).
