You Are 80% Weird

You're more than quirky, you're downright strange.

But you're also strangely compelling, like a cult leader.

'people are strange' - the doors

OK, so i'm weird. But that's not a bad thing, is it?

But it's not as weird of some of the other things i've seen/heard this week...

England haven't qualified for Euro 2008.

Admittedly, that isn't even that weird. And i have to confess that i am not even that suprised.

But it is disgraceful. To not even qualify? All i can do is just shake my head & wait for the 2010 word cup...

Guess I'll have to support Germany instead...

Brad Pitt + Softbank + Iggy Pop

Tries to find it on the web, but couldn't...so let me explain for those of you who haven't seen it.

For the past few months Brad has joined the ranks of 'I'm a really rich famous person, but i ant to make even MORE hard cash by making hceesy adverts in Japan'.

In all fairness, Brad actually joined this group 5+ years ago when he was advertising canned coffee (Roots, i think it was)

This year, he's upped the stakes & become (along with Cameron Diaz) the foreign face for mobile phone company Softbank (formally known as Vodafone). Now, i really don't mind watching Brad on TV. IN fact, the more Brad the better.

The part i am not so sure about is using Iggy Pop's 'The Passenger' as the music in the commercial. I love that song.

But does it match Brad wandering through foreign streets crowded with lots of pretty foreign children dressed in white while he talks on his mobile phone?

I think not.

But hey, maybe that's why i am not in marketing...

This is my 101st post! I've been blogging for just over 2 years. Wow. Where did the time go?

Meeting Bloggers

Met Sarah of Sigsy in Tokyo last week at Martine's photo exhibition at Araku.

Beautiful photos btw - much better seen in large print than on Flickr or slides. Wonderful colours & emotions. Think they're going to be up for the nest few months, so please make your way over there & have a look...

ANYWAY - finally met Sarah. I have to confess that i had been stalking her blog for a while, but didn't feel it appropriate to comment, seeing as i didn't know her. But now it's all cool. Funny thing though - always thought she was southern. And she is *so *not. But she thought i wasn't even british, so i don't feel too bad about it ;)

And that's enough random-ness for one day.

Off to Shimoda tonight for Martine's suprise b'day bash. She's on the train down as i write...she has NO idea what's in store. It's going to be a great weekend....
