CP blogs


My fellow bandmates are fascinating, so to those of you who read Japanese, I thought I'd introduce why we all like following each other's band blogs.

Masamike is Masami's blog. Masami blogs about the creative process, his spring allergies, apologizing for silly jokes, and pictures of himself. He has a lot of followers who know him from Gossip, and since he's only committed to doing support for us, he sort of seems on a similar plane of existence as Tenten, separated from the other three of us. More power to 'em!

Read Words #2 is Tenten's blog. Tenten is a very honest writer, succinct and funky but he will always write exactly what's on his mind. Writes a lot about friends. Tenten is frequently in the top 20 music blogs on Ameba, and occassionally cracks the top 10. Being in a band with him is pretty surreal, to be honest.

Schwarzwald is Schwarz's blog. He decided that he'd be the "big eater" of the band, and sure enough he writes a lot about food. Who doesn't like food? Surely he's not THAT crazy about food! Or so I thought. Then he wrote several poetic odes and laments about his favorite brand of milk tea. Which, incidentally, is delicious. He also answers a lot of fan questions, which sorta makes me wish I got more questions! (EDIT: his recent Pick Play photo series is not to be missed.)

And Everything in its Right Place #2, Joe's blog. Joe is easily the most interesting writer of the bunch. I very frequently, truthfully, laugh out loud at his observations and new perspectives on events at which I was present and concerning which jokes had been made in plenty. His deft quips at Schwarz's expense bowl me over, and Tenten's ribbing at Joe's expense are so Charlie Brown-like you can't help but sympathize. His writing style is so, so unique, and if you check out one blog I highly suggest Joe's.

And mine, Letters from Atlantis, which has been nice writing practice for me, since I'm pretty much obligated to update this thing insanely frequently, and I haven't really written anything important in Japanese since college. How much does it suck that writing, reading, and speaking are completely separate abilities? D:
Mostly though I just write about stuff I'd write about here, so if you don't read Japanese, don't worry; you're not missing out on that much. ^_^;

Last night after work I went to Ueno park for some nighttime cherry blossoms, with Masaki, Keita, Yanagi (Swallowtail), and Kino (ex-beaU). Couldn't stay long, but it's nice to know I still have friends. :) Also Kino is a trip! If you were familiar with him in beaU you will probably be like "duh" but hey.

all i can tell you is that we are gonna play a show in sendai

I guess now that you're writing a blog in Japanese I should comment there too to work on my skills...

Too bad I don't understand Japanese otherwise I would read the writing instead of just seeing the pictures. The pick arrangement series is an epic piece. I love it. It even has Cuddles in it.

My wife reads your Japanese blog, and I read your English one... then we have fun comparing notes. :P
