♫ yamashita tatsuro - your eyes (acapella)

I can't wait for daylight savings time to be over. I love night time and nothing feels like a better reward after a long day at work than a beautiful night sky and bathing in the city lights. it's been raining all week and there's no sign of it stopping until sunday. it's almost halloween, so maybe soon we can trade in our rain for snow. that would be pretty nice.

definitely having a code slump recently. I feel bad for not putting any real work behind any of my personal projects like I had hoped to do this month. :( at least work is going pretty well compared to the first half of the year.

I miss a show on japanese tv called _snack kissa eden_. it was a musical variety show on fuji tv that had six episodes from fall 2012 to spring 2013 (one a month). the pitch for the show was that lily franky was the owner of a café/bar near tokyo sky tree, and komuro tetsuya and the members of the akb48 subgroup no3b were regulars there. everything that happened on the show was improvised, and musical guests would dress up as a character, walk into the place, and spin a wacky tale. between guests, there would be a musical interlude where the guest artist would perform a cover version of a song fitting their character, and some of them are my favorite versions of those songs.

it was just this real cool show to just hang out with, and I've never seen anything else like it on television. I loved it to bits.

four out of the six episodes of the show were uploaded to dailymotion.

if you can understand japanese, definitely give it a shot.
