...Kenpo is cool. The only problem is that murdilka
is in the second-level group now, while I still have this last cycle as a level one = I don't have a good partner to work with:/ If my buddy Russell (a 20-something black belt tae-kwon-do-ka who's taking kenpo karate now) is not coming to a class, I feel like there's not much I can do to make a progress. Guess it all will change dramatically as soon as I'll get a purple belt, though - then I will have more than enough, that's for sure...*Muses*
....My samurai Muse Ryo visited me in a dream, and said that he'd behead me (yes, using those exact words) if I won't return to
"the path", so now I am trying to finish an abandoned samurai picture that was started back in April or so. I noticed, that my style had changed a lot since than: on one hand it became much simpler and less detailed (because of the lack of time for drawing) on another one - it became more.... err... expressive? - something like that. Especially it goes to the "realistic" pictures....
I am sure that because of it this samurai picture will turn awful, but I still hope to keep my head on in return - purely for sentimental reasons...*Foxes*
...I don't know how it works with you, guys, but with me it's something like this: time to time a theme is starting to appear in my life pretty often, it looks like I accidentally stumble upon one thing again and again, and that it comes from different sources... kinda, like something is accumulating around me.
One of a few such things now is Foxes. I stumble upon foxes everywhere: online browsing, images, literature sources, etc., even manga characters; mostly not of/about the real animals, but something related to one or another cool lore. The funny thing is that I started to meet real foxes rather often, too. Right in the middle of the city, since I live here. I know now that foxes' eyes in the light of the headlights are glowing red, not green like the eyes of most of the other animals, pretty cool. Yesterday I was watching a fox through my living room window...*...And other interesting things*
...The Birthday's new maxi-single,ピアノ (Piano) should be released in soon. Why single, Chiba-san; I am SO waiting for a new album... But yeah, it's not the point. The point is the single's cover and the PV video of the title song.
The only of The Birthday's guys who's wearing pants there is Kuhara Kazuyuki, the drummer. The rest is wearing skirts! 8( )
Errrr.... Dear The Birthday! Sorry to break it to you like this, but... you, guys, are not [exactly] Monty Python (you need a fifth member, you see), and you, Chiba-san, are not [exactly] Terry Jones (he is wearing dresses much more gracefully, you see)...
Brrrr, I guess I just had a bit of the cultural shock, seeing my rock-n-roll hero, and the masculine idol wearing a lady's outfit:)
But the song is great. The video not on YouTube yet but you can see it HERE
. I also must say that the video has a kinda mesmerizing quality, dunno why....
- Nice knees, Mr. Yusuke! Did you shave your legs for the video, or is it a blurring special effect? ;D*also*
Hmmmm...what else? Oh, the full Moon tonight is exceptionally beautiful...
