Second day in Tokyo. Started off the day picking up an Amp for DSK to use at Tower Records, then called Hiroshi Fujiwara. He was in his office so I stopped by to chat. We made some rough plans for filming this coming winter. Sounds like HF will be coming up to Hokkaido for a winter fashion shoot very early in the season. Also check out the new Honyee MAG that is out in Stores now! Magazine looked great, Ue is featured in the mag as well!
Here HF shows me the new Rolly speaker from Sony. This thing is crazy it moves and dances perfectly to the music as it rolls around the floor! Great little speaker for traveling, and you won’t get lonely with it dancing around the room.
Tower Records event went even better than I expected! A good crowd was there for us and DSK impressed everybody with his live guitar playing while the movie was showing on the screen. It was nice to know that UE_snowboarder was the first Snowboard related DVD to ever be played live in Tower Records Shibuya. The DVD is selling well there the staff told me, so I hope they do even better as winter starts!
Please check out DSKs new album MODEST and also the just released Aurora live album. DSK and Inoue Kaoru make up “AURORA“. Last year we did a Yoga event at a temple outside of Tokyo called Monshu-in. Aurora performed at that event and that very performance is included in the album! Great mellow instrumental stuff to chill out!
Here DSK signs my copy of MODEST!
Had dinner and chatted with UE after the event. As usual we talked about plans for the future and the hopelessness of the Snowboard industry in Japan….. Always good to chat with Ue.
After dinner went straight to Club Asia in Shibuya just before midnight. Goma and the Jungle Rhythm section were playing live! I wanted to film their performance so I took my video camera and recorded the show. Packed with people everybody dancing to the good rhythms of Goma’s music! here is the band after the show!
