Weekly revue: 2012 week #50 (December 8 to 14)
Outing: Last Sunday we spent the day with a friend's friend's girlfriend who was visiting Japan for the first time. We mainly walked around Harajuku/Omotesando, and also went up the gov't building in Shinjuku. Once in a while it's refreshing to see your city through a visitor's eyes!
Food: Last weekend we went to curry izakaya Yaruki, of which the friendly Indian chef was featured on Tamori Club tonight! All what we had was very good! We'll be going back, hoping that it won't get too crowded after being on TV. :)
New music: - hitomitoi "YOUR TIME Route #1": A cover album of 80's city pops songs, arranged by Cunimondo Takiguchi and sung by hitomitoi. Very enjoyable and refreshing album! It might also hopefully add to my karaoke repertory. :)
- Various Artists "The Beat Goes On ~Salsoul Classics Mixed By Towa Tei~": Doesn't really have much of a Towa Tei feel, though I like to imagine he must have enjoyed and played some of this in NY clubs back in his Deee-Lite days. This is his first ever mix CD, and he chose to do no stretching or manipulation, and just play these dance classics straight. Good stuff!

Music release news: Fujisawa Shiho (Christmas 7"!), Polysics, Sekitova
