Weekly revue: 2012 week #39 (September 22 to 28)
Event: On September 22 at the Suginami City Office in Asagaya was an event with table-tennis Olympic medalist Fukuhara Ai (aka Ai-chan). Ai-chan was named one-day chief of the Suginami police station, in order to promote road traffic safety. She was there with Tokyo police mascot Pipo-kun, and there was a performance by the Suginami Wind Orchestra. (See the video I took below.)

New music: I dropped by a small thrift shop in Ogikubo, and looking at me was a CD by Maeda Norio & Tin Pan Alley. I had seen the same on vinyl a few weeks before and was curious about it, so this meant I just had to get it. "Soul Samba Holiday In Brazil" is an album of bossa/samba covers with lots of great synths, and also Hosono Haruomi's band!

Tech: Went to YAPC::Asia2012 ("Yet Another Perl Conference") on Friday, and saw several interesting talks, including one by Perl inventor Larry Wall who taught us some Perl code from the future (Perl 6).
