one of my favourite Japanese instrumentalists, Skrew Kid, just came out with a new album (room tapes) which i am so excited about! his first album (speak slowly) is probably one of my top 5 albums of all time. it debuted in 2005, so i waited very patiently for 5 years for a new album and it is finally here!
befriending him on myspace years ago, he actually was kind enough to send me a recent email to tell about his new album (and how he also enjoyed his recent trip to Hawaii! haha). so i ordered the cd right away... i'm actually listening to it right now as i type this post. his music is very soothing and fun at the same time. when i listen to his music, i always imagine myself in the beautiful country side of Japan enjoying the peaceful sun while riding a bike or something. it's very relaxing and always makes me happy :-)
ps: 2 more weeks till this semester is over. . . time for finals!! (boo)
christmas is coming!! (yay)
pps: i've been comfortably reading this book every night before i go to bed. reading about moomins in the winter as i fall asleep is so cozy as christmas sneaks up on us.
