The teenage days.

07 /02 2017
When I think of it now that I was powerful and there was nothing scary to me at that time.
And I wanted to leave my parents as soon as possible and live alone in the city.
Of course I didn't have the money and the experience, but, I thought I would be able to become the world champion of professional boxing because I had the physical strength, the faith and a few good friends. That's why I came up alone to Tokyo from Hokkaido, so I practiced in a boxing gym while working as a dishwasher at a restaurant.
It was painful that I could not enjoy it like ordinary young people because of boxing practice and work for living and physical condition management, but I think that was also a valuable experience.
At that time, Yoyogi Park in Harajuku was overflowing with dancers, rock 'n rollers, roller skaters and youngsters playing wall tennis. On Sundays when the practice was off, I would go to see them after work alone. Things around me seemed too vivid and I thought I was so boring and envied them very much. And time I felt was very long for me. So I never imagined myself after several years later.


What will come?

I think that the social media is one of the necessary things these days. Probably Facebook will occupy a large proportion among various social media, especially in Japan. Compared to media type like newspapers, the social media are only providing a platform for people voicing out their opinions, and they have different roles to newspapers in the press therefore the Guardian’s article seems to make just sarcastic about Facebook.Guardian
As they imply Facebook seems to be doing commercialism and palliative things, but the root they most respect is the freedom of speech but though Facebook seems to be an incarnation of commercialism. Maybe they won’t concern no matter what about Holocaust denial is or where refugees go or what immigrating Muslims will be. It's good for Facebook that everyone does something like singing a song, dance, cry, laugh and fight on their own each other and business to let Facebook make money. Surely Facebook extremely might make sense because they never send out anything and they only let someone speak to something freely. So then they never add.
They are trying to grow with full power for surviving. As radio stations and television stations are dying by emerging new media, then newspapers and even Facebook will change to something new.
The actual influence of language exchange within social media will be greater than I personally think. It certainly makes me terrified when I think that Facebook is accepted and available in China. It is also conceivable that tens of millions of users maybe drag up the Japanese slaughter in the Nanjing incident and condemn it endlessly. In that case, will the Japanese government block Facebook? And will moderators be instructed to delete them in order not to do so?
The Guardian would be sneering to mock it. It maybe goes on forever.
Well, let me predict that the Facebook’s moderator will be over ten thousand people.
Does Mark Zuckerberg notice before doing that, or is he already aware of it? Maybe so.
I do not want to leave the media to the incarnation of commercialism, they invented though, because the existence of media that anytime, anywhere, anyway, anyone can be used for anything is the proof of freedom, but now I may leave it to Facebook right.
Will those various problems, including human rights issues, go on forever, as long as there are humans, or end up some day? Will humans eventually become one and those be in the process of understanding?

“Careless Whisper” by Wham in 1984.

Hi there.
How have you been? What is your favorite song?
What I rarely listen to music these days might be that I don’t need them anymore.
Why? Is it to be old? No. I don’t know.
Therefore, my favorite song is the most frequently ever heard the song “Careless Whisper” by Wham in 1984 anyway.
I had lived in Los Angeles alone from February to September 1985. I was young.
I was staying in a shared house that a Japanese elderly couple had been running and the first thing I bought was a yellow radio cassette recorder. I loved to listen to the radio.
Probably the song might be the most popular music at that time.
Whenever I turned on the radio, somewhere in the radio station would be broadcasting Wham’s one like crazy.
Anyway, I had been hearing it over and over again so I memorized the song though I could not understand the meaning of its lyric.
But of course, now I know it.

It is a story like that a man is regretting cheating. Poetically it’s not so cool I think.
Whatsoever, Wham’s Careless Whisper was a great success, maybe, around the world.
Of course, it was a big hit in Japan too, and two Japanese singers, Hiromi Go and Hideki Saijo each other, covered the song and released it too.
Then time went by, George Michael of Wham passed away 25 December 2016.
So just Last Christmas.

Have A Nice G.W.!!

A Great Morning!

04 /22 2017
This photograph is the sunrise of the Umezawa Coast of Ninomiya-
machi, Naka-gun, Kanagawa Prefecture at the morning in April 16.
Because the sunrise was at 5:08 I woke up at 3:00 a.m. and went out
at 3:30. I ordinarily would see the first sunrise of the year here, but
I did not come this new year.
There are those who enjoy a barbecue and swim in the sea and fish here. Of course, it is in summer that they swim.
To tell you the truth, this is a well-kept secret probably I think.
Do you like fishing?
There is the wharf which, sticking out from the shore, called
“Umetei” where you might catch sardines or girellas or black porgies
or mackerels or various kinds of fishes.
Whatever I may say, parking is free there.
And within about 300M at the wharf there is National Route 1 that
runners run up for “A New Year Ekiden”.
So I watch the Tokyo-Hakone collegiate ekiden race almost every year.
It is an annual event for me.
But what the heck! Our University could not entry it only for this time.
That’s why I did not go to see it.
Except at the moment of the first sunrise of the new year there are not
many people who come here.
As I can go by car from my home within an hour, it is very convenient for me.
I'll be there tomorrow morning.
