The culmination of a dream.

Ever since I started watching [and loving] the anime BECK in 2007, I have wished for a CD of the songs from that series. Soundtrack albums were released for the original Japanese cartoon, but not for the English dub, which are the songs I know and love. (The series was never big enough over to here to warrant that sort of treatment.) So I was S.O.L. in that regard.

Last night, I finally managed to cobble together and burn a homemade disc featuring the English songs -- and I tell ya, I love these songs so much that I tear up sometimes when listening to them. (Which I guess goes along with the fact that I sometimes tear up when watching the show.) Anyway, this is a very nice gift to myself.

I was thinkin recently... about how there are some bands that I love the first time I hear one song from them... and others that take time [sometimes years] to grow on me. And I wondered if there is any kind of relationship... similarity among the bands on one list, or distinction between the bands on both lists... any effect on how much I love them or how long I love them.... and TBH, as the list assembles: I don't see it. What puts a band on one list or the other appears completely random to me. Huh.

The birth of Ruriko Kuboh [now Ruriko Miyako], who turns 42 today. I first saw her on TV on New Year's Day 1994, and that was the first time I had ever heard any jpop which truly pleased and excited me. This opened a new musical world for me, and led me to much more music that has joined the ranks of my very favourites. So thank you, Ruriko, and enjoy your day!

PS: she may be 42 but still looks 22!
