Ah, another day, another rumbling that things aren’t really going very well. Many prayers for those in Southern California in the hopes that you and yours get through this horrible fire. Many prayers that the Turks and Kurds can find some way not to flare into full scale war. Many hopes and prayers that we can find a way to remove the warmongers Dick and W from office.
That said, here’s some music! Let’s start with Kinki Kids!
BTW: Kinki is a region of Japan. Get your minds out the gutters, although I can understand them being there!
Here’s Kinki Kids with Brand New Song!
The Kinki Kids are the Domoto Brothers (no relation), and they hold the record for the number of consecutive songs to go #1 on the Japanese charts.
Next: Hello! It’s by Hyde! (drool)
Hyde’s the front for L’Arc~en~Ciel, one of the great Japanese Rock bands. Here’s Evergreen (in English!).

That was Redemption, this is Last Song…
And finally, some SMAP! This is Orange:
This is A Song for Your Love:
Ah…I love Japan!
