This past weekend Koenji hosted a street fair with dozens of performances happening outside the station and along the shopping streets. It’s called Bikkuri Daidogei, or Surprising Street Performance Festival. Since it was a performance, I took the opportunity to admire this sexy acrobat. The neediness of street performers, craving public attention, certainly draws me in. Plus, I love creative makeup.
I have not posted for a week to pay respect to the thousands of dead and displaced by the unimaginable earthquake and tsunami of March 11, 2011. Frankly I wondered whether this blog’s frivolity and frequent lack of taste is appropriate during this stressful period of intense sadness and nuclear meltdown panic.
From today I will resume this blog to show that we are still alive, creative and observant here in Tokyo. I was inspired by my blogging sensei Bangin, who insists he will continue to try to make others happy through his blog. Even in the worst of times, there is plenty of moe to share, plenty of male fashion to ponder, and plenty of hope that Japan will rebuild.
Can you outdance Kylie?
Just slightly older than my mother, Yoko Ono continues being fabulous and creative. Great article profiles her life (school with imperial family members), haiku writer at 4 and a half years old, conceptual musician and then artist. With son Sean Lennon as producer, she’s just released a new album, “Between my head and the sky.”
And, as the photo attests, she’s not shy about revealing some decolletage!
