BrewDog Punk IPA

When I see a bright blue can of beer with a logo design using a font that could as well be from VTKS lineup, furthermore called “punk”, I just feel this urge to give it a try.

Craft beer in Ikebukuro

Saturday night. The party town of Ikebukuro. The craft beer and sake bar called 万事快調 (“all’s well”). Of course I forgot to take any pictures, so I just used the one from Tabelog.

Into the Maelstrom

Bigelf’s new release, while not a concept album, focuses on the central element of sci-fi, with space and time travel showing up at every corner.

Tessai

Going to exhibitions is nice, and it makes me feel like I might even count as slightly cultured in the eyes of ignorant people. “Classical” art (eg up to the 20th century and the collapse of all classical concepts of beauty and art in general) is definitely worth seeing every time, but I felt that I was ignoring something important. After all I’m living in Japan, and while it’s natural that western art exhibitions would be advertised much more, there should be plenty of great local stuff too. That’s how I found the exhibition in memory of Tessai’s death’s 90th anniversary.

Tokió belvárosa

Mondanám, hogy rég nem jártam már a díszes belvárosi részen a Yamanote kör túloldalán, de még csak igaz se lenne. Pont múlt héten voltam Akihabarában egy barátommal, és bár az teljesen más világ, mint a Ginza-környék, ugyanúgy a kör túloldala (és csak egy köpésre vannak egymástól).
