feels good to be back... I think..... August 28 2002 at 5:14 AM
well after 2 years and a few thousand dollars later, I am back in Japan masquerading as a supposed public servant (i.e. a CIR on the JET program). In one way its gratifying to see that my gamble of going back and getting my degree has paid off. In another way I`m not so sure as I`ve been stationed out here in Shimane-ken which proudly declares itself to have the lowest population AND highest concentration of seniors in Japan. I went into Matsue City over the weekend and was unpleasantly surprised by the near complete nonexistance of `live houses` jazz and otherwise.
So I guess its a toss up as of now. Maybe I`ll feel more positive when I get a car and this fucking heat goes away..... oh yeah, and I definately need to get rid of the kindergarteners too..... kodomoyaki anyone?
This is the 2nd or 3rd time I`ve asked but if anybody knows of musical happenings going on in the San-In area, I would be most indebted to you.....
