Lord only knows why I was on there.




Well that tv show was - as predicted - fucking insane. It’s quite difficult to know what these Japanese shows are actually supposed to be about, but I'm guessing it was like some kind of version of our very own Top Of The Pops (R.I.P.).


It was all executed with military precision. For example they give you instructions like:


You will exit the dressing room at 8:34


You will enter corridor A at 8:37


You will shake this persons hand at 8:39


You will perform said song at 8:41 etc . . .


And the most amazing thing is it all runs like clockwork!


I was on with a load of Japanese acts one of which was a manufactured girl group called AKB48. I kid you not. There was maybe 30 of them all between the ages of 13-15!!! I suddenly started to feel very old.


The presenter was some old dude who looked at best like a James Bond villain.

It was loud fast and chaotic. Lord only knows why I was on there.


A good laugh all the same though.


Off to Osaka today.


That's all I've got for you I'm afraid. Jet-lagged out of my mind.


ONWARDS (and a little bit sideways!)

That "some old dude (with dark glasses)" is Kazuyoshi Morita (aka Tamori). He's like a long-running godfather of the Japanese entertainment industry, so don't mess with him. (He'd probably appreciate that his name got mentioned by you in a comical way, though)

Well said Noel :-) I'm Japanese and live in Japan, but totally agree with you about the lameness of AKB48. Japan and its recent music market is literally starting to turn into a stupid festival of lolita-loving pedophiles because of AKB48 -- that's why they always wear school girl uniforms and mini-skirts from young ages even though they suck at singing lol. Their latest music video has them all in white swimsuit bikinis dancing around on the beach to lure even more pedophile "loli-con" men to buy their albums and drool away at "hand shaking" sessions with the AKB48 members. Did you also know that they even conduct an "election campaign" each year where the fans vote to see which girl is the most popular? The voting ticket is included in the CD package so right now the media is going crazy over pedophile fans buying multiple CDs just so they could place as many votes on their favorite lolita idol whom they probably dream and "exercise" on quiety at home behind their monitor screens :-P Even the Japanese media is going crazy about AKB48 and posting stupid news articles on them everyday -- for example, one recent Top News article simply explains what one of the AKB girls eat for breakfast everyday... Seriously, nobody CARES about that girls freakin' breakfast menu and that's one of the top news in Japan lol. In any case, we need more globally infamous people like you to slap Japan and it's infestation of lolita pedophiles back to reality! Thanks for the honest blog and opinions Noel :-)
