Change Of Plans, Change Of Hotels

So, due to a variety of circumstances (including, amazingly enough, Jan talking me into switching to a hotel with internet access -- yes, you read that right, some of you can pick yourselves off the floor now), I will be With Internet for the next week. (Through Tuesday, April 1 in the States, for anyone trying to keep count.)

Gee, I guess this means I get to follow Rally Argentina after all. (cirdan_havens, that doesn't mean you're off the hook babysitting the recordings, onegaishimasu! Though I'll be checking mail if you run into an issue.)

Uh... Tired, not much coherent to say at the moment. Having a great time, taking lots of pictures, boggling Japanese people everywhere. (At least the older gentleman we talked to today was stunned and amazed that we knew what a maneki neko is... Much better than the folks who trip over themselves that the gaijin can say "konnichiwa".)

TV ads for "Rookies" (Igarashi's new drama) are everywhere. Took me a while to do the math (I'm keeping getting up at o-dark-hundred since it's useful, so I'm pretty trashed in the evenings.) What finally did it was watching one of the other actors in the series go through an obstical course with one of the BGMs from Mebius playing in the background.

(Actually, the show with the obstical course was pretty interesting in a weird kind of way. But that's a story for a different time.)

(Oh... Rookies isn't on until later in April. So I'll be missing it/torrenting it.)

On the same theme, I was just watching some Avex show that had a ton of ads for 20th Century's new CD on. I was a bit startled to realize that I recognize Nagano Hiroshi from his smile.

Zugg? Exile's doing a cover of the Galaxy Express 999 opening?

Off to look up reference pics on the Seibu Chichibu station from IniD (since it's located about 50 meters away from where I'm sitting), and find out if the Kakkaku Dam I saw a sign for today is that Kakkaku Dam. (No, I expect no one will know what I'm talking about with that.)

    If you wrote off this year's Kamen Rider because the fruit theme or because the first several episodes were thoroughly silly, give it another try.…

    For reasons I go into below I decided for the first time in a long time to see what the folks who made Ultraman Moebius have been up to lately. I…

    Let's see if my 11th hour Hail Mary manages to redeem the disaster the last nine months have been. *crosses fingers* In related news, 2014 seems to…
