Moe overload, I’ve got a Goodshirt

Moe is a Japanese term for the feeling of overwhelming cute and fluffiness for a person or object which has these properties. Tokyo girls style is another young and invaritably, cute girls pop group. It sounds like so many other bands in Japan, and Korea. At least they did it with less band members than Girls Generation (SNSD) along with a host of other bands. Cashing in on cute is big money in this part of Asia. 25 years old, is, too old as most of the singers on the Jpop/ Kpop music scene are less than 20 years or younger. I can think of a few legalities in being too young. Wouldn’t they come under minimum wage and get paid miniscule amount of money an hour? Can they even enter into a legal contract since they are so young?

Commenting on the video, it was a parade of cute girls on one set only, extolling their love for someone. Boring. Not that love itself is boring, I cite that the way it was put was boring. I remember when music videos actually did something and told a story; was something creative. I am I getting too old?

Aging slappers feat, Politically crazed Evangelists

 

The groupies are back, and it seems, soggier than ever.  The weather hasn’t  dampened any enthusiasm. I did see one bunch of groupies being coached along with a whistle like a marching band or cheerleaders. Though short skirts are the fashion this year. I shudder to think how they would look, if these aging slappers should don their daughters attire ala Girls Generation. 

Harraging on every corner

Also similar to last time, are the trucks with a huge billboard of the candidate on it. The truck comes with a podium and even a TV screen in some cases, so that the encumbent-wannabe can tout his line to the pundits. What on earth do the candidates do on the off-season? My guess would be go back to their hibernation chambers and wait for another year. 

For me it’s just been a time to avoid getting a calling card from the groupies. Honestly it’s like the streets have been hit by politically crazed evangelists. Though I do think that the straight out, evangelical types (church goers) are easier to dodge. What’s more some of the stuff they give out, like mini packs of tissues, lollies and sometimes cups of tea, are more useful. I can’t believe this. I’ve just given my vote of preference to a load of God-fearing twits.
