KISS The WORLD

WOW DIE-san

I feel so filled with life after seeing him and MADさん on stage!
Brain must surely have produced tons of good stuff tonight,
because I’m convinced I must be in a musical paradise of fun times.

To do what I do, and I do a lot of it lately, makes me sometimes drag
my feet out the door… It’s not that I think it will be yet another loud night,
or yet another band to hear..
Tonight I knew it was going to be great to hear KISS the WORLD.
but I sure didn’t know a thing about the other bands… so… yeah…

I must admit I wasn’t really keen on leaving my house today at all.
What pushed me over was the fact that I didn’t want to miss KTW,
and second I had no good excuse to give to Phoe-Lo, friendship
commitments are important!
And lastly the Venue “Zher the Zoo” is within walking distance from my
apartment….so….
I went!
Not really thinking a lot or expecting much.

Also biggest surprise, that Ru-chan must have sensed, because
she said to me:
Anna, you never know…
and guess what, I ‘found’ another band that was a real WOW tonight.
HOLICS
I want to check them out as soon as I can….
It was like seeing Kiyoharu performing with BUCK-TICK with a
Hizaki guitarist and a bassist as eye candy.

Their sound was awesome! I really liked it, and they had a slow ballad in
the end.. that was world class!

PINK SPIDER you work in mysterious ways
You can find DIE-san on twitter as @Pukapyu

 

First morning of 2012

Walking back home from Meiji shrine….
both me a Phoe-Lo were at this point rather drained after partying the whole
night, and no food since about 11 hours ago  …
and as I said my brains weren’t connected, I was all wired after meeting all
these wonderful people in Shimokitazawa ,
that I was just laughing and acting really wired… or weird… ha ha
I was just not able to be a good guide this morning <(^,^)>
Hence I totally screwed up the time with walking 1,5 rounds in Yoyogi koen
ha ha ha
and of course same thing on our way OUT from Meiji shrine area,
I just couldn’t focus, so instead of coming out on “my side” of the shrin,e
we got out on the totally opposite end ha ha
But…. we got some nice walking done this first morning of the first year
in Tokyo!

 

 

6:30 am at the Shrine 01.01.2012

 

Since I live not far from the Meiji shrine and Yoyogi Koen, we went
straight there from the party in Shimokitazawa, or well almost,
Luckily I still had my brains somewhat connected, so I went up and
changed to a warmer jacket, because the alcohol would most certainly
soon wear off…
Problem was that upon leaving my place, I was still too wired to be able
to think, so we totally took the wrong path and in the park ended up
walking around the whole thing… 1,5 rounds because ….
because I was still wired and happy and needed to calm down
before we came to the shrine I think, and yes maybe also sober up a bit.
Poor Phoe-Lo, I admire her for her patience with me!
I do know she had a fun night too though…
it WAS a super, amazing, wonderful,
New Year’s Eve it really was…
and here we are at the shrine around 6.30 am

 

 

A Pink Web on our way to the Meiji Shrine


a Pink Spider Web…
on our way to Meiji Shrine just after we left the party
A…. spider web…. they are always there on occasions like these….
We had talked about hide the whole night,
we had his photo in between us when we were drinking at the bar,
so there I am walking, more than a little bit tipsy, around and around in Yoyogi koen to sober up a bit before going in to the shrine….
when I look up and saw this.
The wee hours of 2012, just before the sunrise…
