J-Rock Fridays Vol. 82

October 19, 2012

Everybody’s looking forward to the weekend.

J-Rock Fridays Vol. 31

October 15, 2010

Another posted-after-work edition of J-Rock Fridays.  I’m sorry I spent my afternoon at the new Salvation Army by my house.  Is anyone else creeped out by the black men in red suits?  They were ALL OVER THE PLACE.  Except they couldn’t be nicer.  They literally ran to open the door for me and my mom.  Hm.  Looks like the next J-Rock Fridays column falls just in time for Halloween Super Fun Time.  Post your favorite “masked” bands/videos in the comments and I will probably add them.  I promise not to post too many Beat Crusaders videos!

Good Morning America- 空ばかり見ていた

Ohohohohooh your “ohohohohoohs” sound so good.  But if you’re going to name yourselves after a popular western catchphrase I recommend not spelling your name out in Japanese, thanks!
