Art Food Music Weekly revue: 2012 week #08 (February 18 to 24)

Exhibition: "Baby Alone", Jane Birkin by Kajino Shoichi (L'appareil-photo bis). Kajino-san is even more involved with the French scene than I thought! At Pola Museum Annex in Ginza until March 11.

Shopping: On Friday I went to Pass The Baton in Omotesando where personal items of Nomiya Maki are currently being displayed and sold. I got 2 books. One is called "Flashback Shibuya" (from around 1994), it's packaged like a record so I wasn't too sure what I was buying, but I was sure I wouldn't see it anywhere else. The only photo of Maki is the one of the cover, but the book itself is quite nicely done. The other is a free magazine called Bento from around 2003 with a few photos of Maki. Many of her stage outfits are also being sold. The display is on until March 25.

Flashback Shibuya & Bento

- Last weekend I had Czech food for the first time (I think), at a restaurant called Sedmikrasky in Yoyogi-Uehara. It was very good!
- Bought cute cat and lion cookies at efuca, haven't eaten them yet. :)
- In Shibuya, I tried coffee from Gooz, which a colleague told me about. It's self-service but it's as cheap as 136yen and you get to choose from about 8 flavors!

Playlist: Kinbara Chieko early albums, and the latest by Nomiya Maki, Takanami K-taro and capsule. Also heard the news of a new Portable Rock album (live + 2 new songs) coming next month, which prompted me to revisit "QT+1". Can't wait for the new capsule being released on March 7!
