Hiroshi Is Here, Safe and Alive!

It was really a big earthquake.
Living in Tokyo for more than a score of years,
it was the biggest earthquake I have ever experienced.

When it struck us, I was a moderator of a telephone conference
with an overseas branch of the company I work for.
I continued the meeting, explaining what was happening
in our Tokyo office to the party on the other end of the line.
Later, one of my colleague in Tokyo made a phone call
to the branch, she was surprised
because they knew the situation in Tokyo very well.
They said to her, "Because Hiroshi was broadcasting live!" lol

It was not until 8:00 pm JST I sent mails to my family
and to my friends after working very busy
on securing the safety of our staff
and coordinating business matters.

I was wondering whether I should stay in the office
which is air-conditioned and full of instant foods
or I should walk home because all the trains in Tokyo stopped.
But the train I take began to run about 11:00 pm,
so I returned home safe.

As I imagined, my favorite CDs stucked high on a shelf
were scattered on the floor.
But there were no trouble with my home.
So I think I can sleep well tonight.

Now please be reassured Hiroshi is safe at home.
And I wish all my friends for their safety.

Signed in Avination

First of all, it was yumix Writer.
She wrote in her diary that she bought another sim.
It was not until I read the detail I found it was not about Second Life
but about Avination, another virtual world based on OpenSim.

Yes, I remember.
Haruki Yifu recently wrote about Avination consecutively.
So the name was recorded in my mind.
I thought yumix's buying a land in Avination
would attract many Japanese residents in Second Life....

Then, it was winds Seiling.
She also wrote in her diary that she made a foot spa
in the land yumix bought.

Yes, I remember.
In 2007 many Japanese people signed in Second Life
and gathered at a foot spa in Ikebukuro.
(The foot spa in Ikebukuro is still one of the most crowded hangaout.
It's called "Ashiyu" in Japanese.)
I thought winds making a foot spa
would attract even more Japanese residents in Second Life.

And finally, yumix uploaded a video about her land in Avination on YouTube.
Seeing the video, I found many people I know well.
They were playing very happily.
Yes, seeing the video, I could not but sign in Avination. lol

But, logging in Avination, I found many beautiful ladies there
and the default avatar of mine was so clunky
I went for shopping to buy my shape, skin, hair and, of course, outfits.
And here's my picture in Avination. lol


Thus my days in Avination have begun.

Tomgirl Live at a Japanese Tea Room

Logging in Second Life today, I found it was time for Tomgirl's rap show.
So I teleported to the venue that was, to my surprise, a Japanese tearoom.
Tomgirl was rapping on a tatami mat, which was a sight of fusion
of japanese culture and the Western culture.
In fact, the audiences came from various countries including Japan and U.S.A.

The music was awesome.
I know some of here repertories but all of them were played
with new arrangements with superb rhythms.
All of us enjoyed the show very much.


If you miss her show today, I do recommend you to go see her show next time. :-)
