If you read this blog serially or from top down and not just follow a link, you might notice a Japanese theme recently. yes, I was impacted by my work with Akira Tana. But there was also a movie festival with Kurosawa films at Stanford Theatre.
I just saw a cite of a Japanese folk song, Terubozu and now comparing a couple versions I notice a reference to a gold bell, carried by a Monk. (Not Thelonious, obviously). But in other versions, it is a ball. Bell, ball, what’s the difference.
Oh, that this too solid flesh would melt, because it is too sullied.
Also, by Terry, formerly known as TMT and now TMW, maybe I should call her Terry Terry Boozoo.
Terry bought be a Japanese referencing t-shirt from uniqlo and it took me a while just now to guess its Sharaku. Bub sent me something about Robert Whiting You Gotta Have Wa and I noticed on the cover — paperback 2006 not original 1989 that i recall excerpted page 76 on Sports Illustrated — what looks like a fake Sharaku. Not sure.
I also have a pocket tee with Hokusai, which she just last night thought was a Hiroshige. (If i got that wrong uniqlo had a correction that accepted that and corrected and directed).
The thing about 36 Views of Mt Fuji is the mountain, even though the wave is what people notice. (which is wa I was going for when I slyly posted a photo of local musician from Ana and The MRI but she’s not in focus and you can read the marquee from same Stanford 27 Uni Top Hat The Thin Man.).
There is Method Man in my Madness. (that could be a band name or mash up)
There’s also, back to where I came in, Edgar Allen Poe “The Gold Bug”.this guy: https://www.amazon.com/You-Gotta-Have-Robert-Whiting/dp/0307455971
