saw her live yesterday.  she has an amazing voice and the performance was wonderful.  but, wow, the audience was dead.  nobody was dancing.  everybody just stood there.  :P

i guess maybe i need to go to concerts that attract a more outrageous crowd.  :D

}LOL

I love her voice too :D

:sing: The fire fades away
Most of everyday
Is full of tired excuses
But it's to hard to say
I wish it were simple
But we give up easily
You're close enough to see that
You're the other side of the world to me

AHH SO SWEET!

Stilll I hope u really enjoyed the concert :D

maybe not, really.

she started that song out by asking who was in a long distance relationship and then advising that either the person come NOW or they break up. i think it's a sad song, about the struggle of long distance. apt for japan. some people have long distance relationships for a decade because of transfers.

my favorite song is "HOLD ON" :D

sigh. I haven't heard kt tunstall, so I don't even know how danceable her music is, but... I'm sure the blame is to be put on the Japanese! not the artist.

I tell you, when I went to a music festival in Okinawa (mostly reggae, with some crazy fun fusion music), now they knew how to dance and have a good time ^__^ I think a big part of it is that Okinawa is the place people escape to to get away from the stress of working life. basically they were "freer" because they were in a different place both physically and mentally.

damn city folk in Tokyo <__< you gotta educate them Aeravi!

:giggle: well, i did dance. but as a crazy gaijin, don't think i have much influence. i'm like a child that can be given allowances. "oh, it's a four-year-old, of course it's wild and running around." "oh, it's a foreigner, of course its dancing strangely." lol, ah well. shou ga nai. :D

i wanna go to okinawa!!! :D

and i wanna stop being sick. been sick now for 6 weeks without a break. waaahhh... :crying:

*shakes head* when will the Japanese learn that gaijin are humans too >_<

oh noes! the little ones have given you a virus again?! I've been clear of any colds for the past 2 or 3 weeks. that's a record for me since about fall -__-; I still have to blow my nose some times, but I'm just going to blame it on spring allergies or something.

we should hang out again soon! quick update: I am indeed moving to Ashikaga (15min closer to Tokyo!), going to Korea for 12days, and I will have a few free days before my next contract begins ^__^

next week, I have this weird schedule where I have Tuesday and Thursday off, and only work for the first half of the day on Friday. It's too bad I just have every other day off, but it's an easy week nonetheless...

I will probably go to Korea from 3/27~4/8. Probably move in the 2 days before Korea. Otherwise, the new contract doesn't start until 4/14!

I could make a day trip to Tokyo on one of the random days off next week, or we could just wait until I get back from Korea. Either is fine with me ^__^

damn it, opposite schedule I see >.< I can't say for sure about Friday. I only have 2 classes, so I think I should be able to leave at 10:45. the school probably thinks I should stay until 1:30 though. hmmm. the other thing is that this is the time of year when all the ALTs change, so there may end up being some parting events here.

...you could come and visit me instead?? and that is of course to spend the night :'D

and I could visit you in April!

have to work on saturday, unfortunately.
maybe after i get back from korea.

i have to say, it's the most fun hanging out when it's just the two of us so we can talk about our nerdy art shit in art nerd language... so maybe we should try to work it out that way. :D

well, i'm in tokyo right now. my japanese friend told me that "nihonjin wa shai desu," which means japanese people are really shy. they are, actually. they're very aware of people watching them, so they're less likely to dance in some situations. maybe more dancing for metal bands? and electronic music, people dance at clubs.

but people around me being shy made me feel really self conscious about dancing, because I WANTED to go crazy, but felt really out of place doing so. sigh.

kt is amazing. she sounds as good live as she does on the cds.
