Weekly revue: 2015 week #10 (February 28 to March 6)
This week I bought a new lens for my good old Panasonic Lumix GF-1 camera. The lens is actually by Olympus (fully compatible), a M.Zuiko 45mm f1.8 which should make me able to take much better photos even in low light, and also some nice street shots! Can't wait to use it more!
Photos: - A little walk at the Imperial Palace, while Prince William was visiting Japan. (This was before getting the new lens.)
- And some fun with the new lens around Tokiwamatsu, Shibuya.
Music event: The Lady Spade held a secret-ish free one-man show at Future Seven in Aoyama, a place I had always been curious about every time I passed in front of it. The show was full of songs from the new album. Those who are uninitiated may want to start with this live collage clip! The album, "Reverse Shaped Black Heart", clocks over 1 hour and it's absolutely great!
- Also caught a nice little exhibit of Denki Groove goods at Tower Records Shibuya! Love those red shirts (and the song "Big Shirts" of course), big hat and the Fuji-san cone!
Music release news: Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, Nomiya Maki
Playlist: CAPSULE, Denki Groove, The Lady Spade, Chiroline ver.2, Buffalo Daughter
This week's video: Kyary Pamyu Pamyu "Mondai Girl"
