Winery Dogs Unleashed in Japan (2013) [amazon - but $99]

Beauty-beauty-beautyfull concert recording. Graceful motions from the cameras and the band, cut and faded to magical effect, the tight depth of field maintained so elegantly that it may have been done in post, and everything steeped like teas in natural browns and greens.

Stills taken from the track “Regret”, my favorite by far on the disc. [youtube]

Wolf’s fun “Shark Attack” (2014) — if you don’t like it after 48 seconds, you won’t like it ever. (I may be breathing in too many fumes from the battle jacket project.)

so waaaaaaaaay back in ‘96 i took kayo to our first concert, X Japan at the Tokyo Dome, 12/30/96.

or rather, she took me, because i didn’t know how the fuck to buy a ticket or nav the trainage. 

so just now in aug 2014 she’s watching Toshi do “Forever Love” (our wedding song) on some japanese talk show that aired yesterday, and she goes “Are they playing here soon?” and i’m like “…yeeeeeessss… do you want to go? It’s the Garden. It’s not like theyre gonna sell it out.”

So see you there maybes.

Just wiped my Note 3. Mmm, smells fresh!
