My Widdle Bwain

It takes the smallest things...

It just takes the smallest things to get me to smile some days... Last night a friend of mine pointed me at a webcast that runs J-Pop. So I've been spending the day at work today happily grooving to a bunch of random J-Pop. It seems to be one long ad campaign for Avex artists, so half the stuff I know and like, while some of it is still new to me.

(As an aside, I'm somewhat disturbed by the way things published by Avex have suddenly come to dominate my CD collection. I seem to recall that a year ago I wasn't even really that familiar with the label. Now, it seems to be everywhere. My bank account would like to blame it all on Initial D (my bank account hating Initial D passionately, and mourning the day I ever encountered the series). But really, much of it is completely unrelated. Which makes it all the more odd.)

For the bored, the channel I'm listening to is Vivamusic Jpop. I found it by doing a search for "J-pop" in the Windows Media Player's Radio option.
