I’m not a fan of the humidity, but I don’t mind a hot dry day with a cool breeze, and that’s what we got this morning. Alex and I went out for a walk around the block and found a cute little bun.
We had a nasty storm this afternoon, but as I sit here in my room, writing this post, the moon is huge outside my window. Very low in the sky. I think it was supposed to be full last night, but it looks pretty full to me now.
I’m a fan of the moon.
I love the moon.
Have I mentioned I’m a fan of a Japanese band named Buck-Tick?
I must have.
I’ve gone all the way to Japan just to see them in concert.
It’s been a while since I shared a song of theirs, so here’s one.
It’s a sad song about a little boy who goes to the movies with his brother and while they’re there, the Nazis drop bombs on the city. It’s based on the true story of the bombing of Guernica in 1937, during the Spanish Civil War.
The artwork projected on the back of the stage is amazing. The audience of thousands was, I’m sure, stunned into silence at the end of the song. I’ve seen Buck-Tick do this live–stun the audience into not being able to clap. They’re that good.
You might want to read the lyrics in English if you don’t understand Japanese or Spanish. Here they are, courtesy of the amazing translation skills of Cayce at NotGreatestSite. Check the site for extra notes on the translation and an interview explaining the experience that drove Sakurai to write the lyrics.
