Okay, universe. I got the message, loud and clear.
I believe in magic again.
Also, in Jpop. I was telling someone how my experience of Japanese pop culture media is something like what I’d expect a group of alien children might make if they were trying to fake their way through American pop culture production.Which, no, is not to call the Japanese children. It’s just that there’s a funny kind of sweetness, even innocence, in some of it that really surprises me. And which I find refreshing, as in this example (though sorry for the audio problems):

The song? That’s how I feel about today. It’s good. Bright spots are to be embraced, celebrated. Luxuriated in.
Must pack. Tomorrow I’m off to Jeju Island for a few days, and haven’t prepared at all. As usual!
