The pleasure we obtain from music comes from counting, but counting unconsciously. Music is nothing but unconscious arithmetic


I think the Ben Fold's song was originally only written in English, then translated into a Japanese version (for Japanese concerts?). That's interesting...I once heard a Japanese translation and performance of Sixpence None the Richer's "Kiss Me" and at the time, I was surprised that they decided to do that.


Hi Eric Thank you for your nice words to my blog. I am very glad to know you like my blog.

Hello there. I just found your blog all the way from Paris. I am loving it! What a great way to discover another culture. We see many Japanese in Paris and now I can't understand why. You have so many beautiful things and are really trend setters these days. Merci!


Hi There
Thank you for everybody, so many mistakes ne!
I changed PV part now. Thank you taro and Jenn.


Ha, ha. Yes, that "Don't drink the water" lyric is way off tune since nowhere in Japan is public water a problem.

Just a little suggestion Mari:
The abbreviation "PV" is way, wa-a-a-ay too obscure jargon for regular English speaking folks to understand. "PV" had me scratching my head to figure out what you wanted to say. It's like the other Japanese favorites "CM" and "BGM" which are very common Japanese "words" that are hardly normal in everyday English and used only within the media industry.


Maybe the "Love Missile F1-11" line is a translation of "the food is delicious, but don't drink the water"?

This is kind of an English kimarimonku about traveling to foreign countries... don't drink the water! (You'll get sick.)
