A joker dj started playing clapton's layla and rambling on about the pronunciation. Now I have a serious 'reiwa' earworm. lol

Posted in: The largest problem Japan’s fiscal debt faces is its social security conundrum. See in context

Well I can't seem to dig anything up on that 17% figure. Unless we go into a deep recession(possible!), 10% should be doable.

I thought he advocated a 17% consumption tax in the Koizumi days, but my memory may be failing me.

Posted in: Noda calls for ending ultra-easy monetary policy See in context

The premise here is that we should be concerned about the well being of the regional banks ? Really?

I am not against Noda but...

I haven't met anyone in Japan who knows who he is (yet). Not that anyone should know. It would be like asking a Canadian who Taiho is...

Anyways, interesting choice of articles for japantoday.

Posted in: Japanese lap up new vintage of Beaujolais wine See in context

Well, it certainly isn't worth 2000-3000 yen/botttle, and at that price point I would drink something else. That being said, it's a decent little table wine at 500-800 yen/bottle. It's possible to find it at that price, but usually in January. Gamay ain't bad.

Posted in: Axl Rose joins AC/DC as new singer See in context

Recently, the bass went to Malcolm's relative(nephew), the drummer was prosecuted for dirty deeds, and now BJ 's out. 75%.

Gold standard - Led Zeppelin.

Changes - zero

Posted in: Axl Rose joins AC/DC as new singer See in context

Well, this band seems to rotate people in and out on a continual basis. The ravages of time, I suppose. Axl is a good choice if they really want to continue, but a band name change may be in order.

Or just retire and rest on your laurels.

Abenomics must surely be working based on the photo evidence. Oh well, I prefer to give the Arimakinen a go in any case.

Posted in: Dieting See in context

Gee whiz guys, let's set the record straight.

In Japan, people sometimes DO close their eyes when thinking something over.

If you're in the Diet all day deliberating, you may look bored but it does not mean you are not paying   to what's going on.

Yeah, I don't always agree with what these guys do but I don't think there is a lack of effort. Certainly the political system as we know it is broken, I will give you that.

Given her size (small!), what she is doing to the lpga tour is unbelievable. She is giving up 50-75 yards on every hole, but she still manages to get it done. Nothing but respect for her.

Recently, I'm feeling things are getting underpriced. Grand!!

One liter of Jim Beam at the hardware store for 1480 yen. Unbelievable, I can't get it in Kentucky for that price.
