Long time no write the blog

Anyway, So long time this blog has been stack, but it's on my feeling like mountain's weather.
I've got so many things to write, and I don't know how I can choose from those stacked memory...
These days, I've been playing percussion at Passing clouds which is music venue in Dalston. The venue is really nice place enjoying music, every night some hot things keep going on this place, and Every Sunday afternoon, we play percussion and eat foods and watching movie and Jamming. so that, when I go there on Sunday, I can enjoy all of day.

Dive into Sunday Jam

And also I'm Djing here every 2 weeks on Thursday.
Tumbaito, the house band of this event, is really cool. They play Latin Jazz original songs and some covers then going to jamming which comes anytime on those songs, that is amazing live performance. I love their sounds.
All musician who come to join jam are very attractive and they love music no doubt. I'm join to them and gonna get some good things for my life. It's enough only feeling but will keep it because it's fun!

Give it until grown up...

It's been 1 year since I came to London. This diary has got stuck in the "big chill" so long time.
Long these days I spend good time and also bad time, when I was in the bad my friends and friend's kindness helped me to find better place.
When I realize my friend's humanity, I feel something as positive power.

There are lots of bad news these days, not only the Earth quake...
Such a feeling knocks me down, but when I see someone's little heart and diving into it with really good music, that makes me realize what Love is.

Sometimes I pray seriously, and hope it's gonna be OK.
I've been sending exactly same thing which save me from depressing,
and I trust what we pray for something could be changing any things.
I don't think it's a silly thing, it's important thing for every people.
Send it in right way and receive it in your heart.
If the pain improves a little, give it to around the people by changing your smile.

When you feel a pain, I feel a pain as well.
My heart and thought goes to Japan.
Much Love!



Traveler

もう何週間も前の事だけど、一人の旅人がロンドンにやって来た。
A traveler who is my partner's one of best friends was coming to London
a few weeks ago.

彼は世界一周一人旅をしていて、アジアを回りインドからヨーロッパへ入る道程で
He is traveling around the world by himself, he trough Asia and coming
first place in Europa is London.

僕の相方を訪ねロンドンへ辿り着いた。
so, he knocked our door and stayed for a week.

彼とは日本でも何度か会った事があり、その時も優しさや人の良さがにじみ出る様な
I had met him in Japan, then I knew his warm character.

ナイスガイだったが、ネパール、チベット、インドという仏教国を現地人の目線で
but, I felt more peaceful atmosphere from him than when I met before,

歩いて来た彼は、前の印象よりも更にピースフルで、一人旅をしているが故の独特な
that why, I guess it might comes from his experience which is adventure of
Buddhist country like India, Nepal, Tibet, and his story was fulled by
view of native.

雰囲気や現地で調達した服のせいもあって、行脚を続ける修行僧の様にも見えた。
and his clothes are chosen at local place of that country, so he looks like
Ascetic monk.

異文化と触れ合い、それを知ろうとする時の最良の方法は、一端すべての主観を
The best way of knowing another culture is to dive with out any stereotypes.

取っ払いまっさらな状態でダイブする事だと思う。

そういう事をずっと続けて来たからか、彼は知り合う人には(お店の人とかにも)
I think he might keep the way, so that he has always open mind, -for example
he has conversation with anyone even shop staff.

オープンで、知らない内に街に少しづつ慣れてしまっていた自分に気づき、ハッと
and I realize that I'm getting used to London life, that is waste way.

させられる事も多かった。
I should keep finding something curious.

平日は彼と一緒にほっぽらかしていたロンドン観光とワールドカップ観戦。
Almost weekday were spent sightseeing of London and watching world cup.

彼のBirthday partyもあり、良くビールを飲んだ様な気がする。
also we had Birthday party of Issei-the name of traveler, we had a lot of
beer in a week.

旅の話を聞くのは好きだ。行った事のある国なら自分も行った様な気になれるし、
I like to listen story of travel, coz I remember the atmosphere of country,

行った事の無い国の話なら自分が行く事を想像して飽きる事がない。
if I hadn't been there, I can imagine I were there.
So I never get tired of hearing.

ヨーロッパの夏はどうやら短いらしい。
Summer in Europe seems short.

夏の間に少し旅をしてみたい気もする。
I have some feeling to enjoy summer traveling in Europe.

About Brighton weekend

しばらく、blog更新してませんでしたが単なるサボリです(笑
I have not updated my blog recently, it's just laziness.

さてさて、書きたい事は実は山程あるんですが、
Well, there are many interesting things, but I write down 1 by 1!

まずは、ショートトリップの事から。。。
At first, about my shot trip...

幸運にもここロンドンには、友人を通して友達になるというパターンで
知り合った武蔵野美術大学や武蔵大学の元留学生が何人か居る。
その友達から更に友達を紹介されて、、、
と言う感じで、みんなで広げよう友達の輪なのだ!
Fortunately in London, there are some nice guys who came to
Musashino art University or MUsashi University as foreign student
introduced by my Japanese friends.
The guys introduce me to their friends, friend's friends are all
friends, so wold was fulled by my friends near future!

こないだは、simonと一緒に南の海沿いの街Brightonに行って来た。
A few weeks ago, I went to Brighton where is seaside town in
south side of Uk with siomon.

brigton
Brighton station

彼の親友のedeはフリーランスのイラストレイターでその街の教会の中で
展示会があったんで、日帰りのつもりで小一時間の電車旅行。
途中の田園地帯を抜けると、丘の上に立つbrightonの駅に到着。
駅を降りると、規模は小さいがキラリとセンスの光るお店が多かった。
何となく海が近い開放的な雰囲気もある。(天気良かったからかも)
丘が在って、街が在って、海がある。
きっと探せば景色の良い所が沢山あるんだろうな。。。良い街だ。
His close friend Ede is illustrator freelance, he has an Exhibition
at church in the town. He invite me & simon there, so I went to
short trip from London first time.
through the country side, there is the Brighton station on top of
hill. We get off, there are many small shop which has good original
sense and an open feel somehow close to sea!(It might from good
weather)
There is hill, town, sea...good place!
It might be so good location around top of hill!

Exhibitionは23時までで、仕事終わりのsimonと一緒だった為まずは会場へ。
坂を下った先に立派な教会があり、外には人だかり。
The Exhibition "Freak show" is until 23PM, we didn't have enough
time to see the sea, so at first go to the reception.
There is a good church down the hill ahead, the crowd outside.

そしてゴリラがお出迎え。
And a gorilla's welcome!

charch
中は大盛況!
Inside is a great success!

Ede's picture.

日本では、あまりこう言う場所に足を伸ばさなかったがビールがドネーション
(まあ、払うけど良心的)なのと、何人か友達が居た為、予想以上に楽しめた。
I didn't attend to such a reception, but it's good!!
Beer are free and I knew some friends,and good pictures.
that's enough reason to enjoy!

終わった後はアフターでpubへ行き、結局友達の輪に肖り寝床を確保。
しこたま飲んで、ビーチ沿いのクラブへ行くもエントランスチャージを
払いたくないと言う理由で家飲み。この晩に2人の酔っぱらいが財布を無くす。
(内一人は路上で発見、もうひとりはede)
At end, we went to some pub, Everyone said that there is friends
friend's house don't worry about my bed.
We got drunk, going to club in beach, but not enter coz it's not free.
after all 2 guys lost wallets.(one guy find out on street,another is Ede)

次の日はビーチまで行って、のんびり日光浴ながら酒を抜き帰る。
ちゃんと地元のレコ屋もチェックしましたよ(笑
Next day, I went to beach, take my time in sunshine & take off alcohol.
Off cause I checked records at that town's!

Mobile amusement park is coming to town

Londonに来てからチャリで移動したり、公園をジョギングしたりとヤケに
健康的な生活をしている。こないだはジムにいって泳いだ。
Ever since I came to London, I have healthy life. I moved by bicycle,
jog in park, also I went to gym to swim.


公道での交通ルールは日本と少し違うようで、未だに交差点のすべてが
赤信号になる意味が不明。とは言え、歩行者の殆どは信号を無視している。
Road traffic rules are slightly different in Japan, I don't understand
why every signal turn red in crossroad. but almost people ignore that.

移動中やジョギングしている時は友達のmixを聞きながらがベスト。
みんなドンドンWebにUPして下さいまし〜笑
When I'm having exercise, I always listen to my friend's DJ mix.
It's best way for having fun exercise.
My dear DJs! Let me get your mix on web♪ I need your good vibes!

今週はジョギングコースの公園に移動式遊園地が登場した。
Mobile amusement park is coming to my jogging park in this week.

設営は腕にタトゥーを入れたハードロックなおじさん達が手際よくやってました。
なんかこういうの良いな〜。Wild mouseだってさ〜笑、和む♨
Many macho men who has tattoo every each arms constructed the amusement park very smoothly.
They has smiles with their job. That's good ! very warming :)
and nice humor like this.

Centerの方へ行くと、East end film festivalという、movie fesに出くわし
商店街の一角で無料上映を楽しむ。
When I went to center city, there is movie fes"East end film festival".
so enjoying free movie at space of shopping street.

良いね良いね〜、和む♨
Good good ! nice event!

day3_1.jpg

一週間くらいやっているfesみたいで、新旧200本くらいの映画を上映している
との事。僕が見た時は、ヒッチコックの(The Lodger)という無声映画に生バンド
が入っていて二時間近く演奏しっ放し。
The fes was running on about 1week more or less, showing that about 200 old and new movie.
When I watched, they showed Hitchcock's silent movie"The Lodger" with live accompaniment.
It was playing from start of film to the end.

nosferatu.jpg

インプロっぽい感じだけど、場面ごとに曲調やタイミングがリンクしていて素晴
らしかったのですが、前に陣取ったお客さんが邪魔すぎて100%楽しめず。
まあ、無料上映だし文句も言えないっすね。
The band played like improvisation, but music matched each sine each timing!
It was so cool and excellent. Unfortunately audience interfere to watch that.
I couldn't have enjoy full, well it's free movie and movie fes, unavoidable...
but I could have good time♪

春が来たからなのか、各地でこういうイベントがある事はとても素晴らしい!
Whether from the spring has come, it is all over these events is great!
Nogh respect!!!
