Things I like: Perfume (the J-pop band)

So we're back, after only an absence of three months this time. Progress.

No wait, I got this... Progress?


So, if you have no idea who or what Perfume is, which is probably a lot of the few who still come here, let's start there.

So I could send you to wikipedia, but that's dumb. First, if you're here you probably know how the internet works, find wikipedia your fucking self. Second, if there's a worse way to introduce music to someone than text, I'm hard pressed to imagine what it would be.

Stained glass art, perhaps?

Anyway, here, this is Perfume. It's undeniably happy J-Pop.

If you said to me I'd be a fan of a J-Pop band a couple years ago, I'd have looked at you like you were from space. Of course, it took me several hundred hours of listening to Daft Punk before I realized I was into Techno.

Oh and hey! Perfume is also heavily techno. So there's that.

This is not my favorite Perfume song, although it's top ten. It is however, a perfect way to introduce Perfume to someone who has no idea who they are. This is a quintessential video and great example of their sci-fi Kawaii aesthetic.

This is a non-game thing I am going to talk about on occasion, so I hope you folks liked it, because I am planning on writing more about this band and why I love them so much.

Interesting. I watched a Jpop music video show on SBS once. It was quite fascinating. Here is a thought... the future is Remote Piloted Avatars of J-pop girls in outerspace with instantaneous communications for real time operations.
