OK Fred #6
As I am in Japan now, I think it is best for me to get more interested in some Japanese pop culture something. I've always been a reader of OK Fred, so I think that is a good place to start re-developing my interest in Japan and things that Japanese people and people living in Japan find interesting (that was a long sentence!) The newest issue of OK Fred is out on the 6th and I'm going out on a limb here (sarcastic grin), but I have this crazy hunch that it'll be a damn good issue.
I'll have to pick it up in Tokyo where they actually have like, good bookstores and stuff ...
And speaking of OK Fred, I know this is sort of old news, but they have a new-ish radio program out which you can listen to here. You sort of have to be into stupid Japanese music, but I guess the show is well done (sorry -- I don't dig Japanese music much anymore ... people seem to be too into twee crap or hyper-active pop here ... all the good guys left the scene or are leaving it as I write this).
