  1. Halloween came to be well known by the movie 'E.T.' or 'The Nightmare Before Christmas' in Japan. The disguise parade and "trick or treat" have been done since the 1990's. However, in Japan, it has not “religious meaningâ€. Just enjoys it as a "Seasonal event" in the foreign country. I decorated the illumination and articles of the Jack-O lanterns in my house. My daughter invites many friends to the costume party every year. though it doesn't do to our regret this year . I also carve Jack-O lanterns. It is easy to carve when a little warming it with the microwave oven.
  2. Andie Your favor similar my favor very much. The music that I love most is Eric's songs. Moreover, I think the most handsome man is Keanu Reeves, and the most beautiful woman is Angelina Jolie!!!! That’s incredible!
  3. Shelley, Happy Belated Birthday from Japan!!
  4. Well, he was very popular in Japan. His natural worship looks like natural worship of an ancient Japanese. An ancient Japanese found "God" to the mountain, the river, the megalith, the gigantic tree, the plant, the fire, and rain, the winds, and the thunders. This is thought of "Shintoism" of Japan. Moreover, his word is simple and comprehensible. Additionally, I think that a strong message to his anti-war sounded in a Japanese mind, too. 'Take Me Home, Country Roads†and “Sunshine on my shoulders†are published in the textbook of English and music of the junior high school student in Japan so often. James, I heard this song after a long time today. “Follow Me†was one of my favorite songs of John Denver. “This Old Guitar†“'Poems,Prayers and Promisesâ€â€¦.. You remind me of the past. Nostalgic those days that was shining everything, and filled with hope. I do not think be to good when it is possible to return to simple, in those days pure feelings. I want to get back to simple and pure feelings in those days. It is suitable for me today……not John Denver. “Driftingâ€song by Harry Connic Jr. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gIk-84pvGs
  5. Thank you for a lot of information. I had the record of "Annie's Song" with the signature of John Denver. It was elected by the prize of radio programs. I saw John's name on this board before. It brings back memories far things the past.
  6. I think that Eric likes this poetry. "Don't wanna lean" Don't wanna lean no longer On ready-made thoughts Don't wanna lean no longer On ready-made religions Don't wanna lean no longer On ready-made sciences Don't wanna lean no longer On any authorities This is what I've learnt Since I was born My own eyes and ears They are all I can trust My own legs They are all I can stand on Anything bad? Nothing bad! What I really wanna lean on is The back of my chair ....by Noriko Ibaragi
  7. It is an anniversary of the 13th times's death of John Denver today. BTW, I have read here before. The post that there is some relations plots or doubts of John Denver's death. Please tell me what meaning is it????
  8. It became the 12th just now in Japan. Happy Birthday Robyn!!! Wishing you all the fun and excitement that only birthdays can bring.
  9. Yes!!! I saw this game on TV last night. It was so exciting!!! Japan won Argentina!!! It is the first time of Japan soccer in history. Because the soccer team in Argentina is very wonderful. We Japanese felt admiration for Messi's play It was the first game for a Japanese team inviting a new supervisor. I am glad of the game with the highest team. ,and in my friend's country team, At that time
  10. Quote:I don't know about returning (I've always posted only the straight truth of my reality here on EC.Com)..:-) Well, James It might be true. You are always swimming with the dolphin that put on a bikini that wore perfume. You always enjoy the cycling with many young girls. You are always enclosed by the red roses that girls dedicated to you. LOL! Even if I knew that you said to under 18-year-old girl, "Sleep early" or “Do your homework", in your reality .
  11. It is this song that I love in the album "Winter Dreams". Uniting of indescribably attractive sound of guitar and Eric's voice. I read a lot of articles and blogs in Japan. I am convinced that it is this song that evaluated highest among critics, and it was loved by so many fans in Japan. They say that "This is song showed Eric's quite new stage". I also thought exactly. It was a person to have played the guitar in your song who had participated in that Madonna's famous piece. Very it is a brilliant fact! We wish to express our gratitude to Eric. P.S. Eric HMV Shibuya that you had visited by the promotion of "Winter Dreams" closed the store in August. The reason is a decrease in sales of CD. One place of your memories was lost again in Japan.
  12. Quote:That's how I live my life- with a lot of feeling. But it's genuine and real. I've learned that from the great singers like Eric. Mike,I love your word. Then.....James, shall we return to the world of the imagination?  
  13. I interrupt during love of two young people .....excuse me. Mike,Please add Haruki Murakami to the list for your reading. It is said by him the candidate of the Nobel Prize in Literature for these years.
  14. Andie!!! The writer whom I respect most is Yukio Mishima. I’m glad that you read his work!!! My most favorite work is "Spring Snow "(“Haru no yukiâ€) Prohibited love with woman to whom it is decided to marry royalty. It is a beautiful, grand love story……that the conflict, suffers complicated the distorted pride by the young man. Please read by all means if you have a chance. 'Lafcadio Hearn' is a Greek British writer, and he came to Japan first as a journalist in the United States in 1890. The beauty of Japan advanced by the modernization where it ruined and it went was drawn. Japan that he drew is really beautiful. The TV drama that depicted Lafcadio Hearn's life had been broadcast for a long time before. It was that George Chakiris who act in the TV drama work. I marveled at wonderful of acting of man who knew only by the West Side story. James You had posted a wonderful contribution about the development of the economy of Japan before. I think. When the reason that the Japanese kept developing was strong pride after the war. When having never lost in Japanese original even mental having been completely denied was a pride. Mike I’m glad to read that you loved Yamaha musical instruments. I can never thank you enough to my friends. P.S. And I know. The grand piano of Yamaha was there at Eric's house.
  15. When I try to delete this contribution because it seems to be misunderstood, PC has freezed. At that time, you read this. If so....it's OK. I confess. I like my play in the world of the imagination as well as James.
  16. When you posted the video, I was just talking with my friends. About the ROMANTIC relations between married couples. One of my friend is going to buy a new house. Her worry was "Both bedrooms with her husband". She said that she would think it to be unpleasant. Still, she tries to buy a new house with her husband. Why do you think? Another friend said the reason. They say that "The married couple becomes a joint manager to manage the family, not gradually a man and the woman in Japan". This is not very rare case in Japan. Moreover, such a question came out at the party with middle aged woman the other day. "Please raise your hand if you kissed your husband every day. " It was only two people that raised the hand. There are 20 participants. Romantic???? Woops!!! We have looking only in Eric's song. However, if he marries sweet Ell, the Japanese men will surely become romantic and sweet,Certainly!!!! Is it "x-rated" ???
  17. Woops!!!! I'm sorry. It made a mistake. It was a story in another Japanese music festival that Lionel and Manilow performed. Not Yamaha Festival!!!!
  18. In this music festival, the winner is chosen from among the representative singer in many parts of the world. The spectator enjoys special guest's performance during the conference that decides the winner. (Eric is a special guest!!!)。 I recalled an interesting story because I saw Ira and missm write by other threads about Barry Manilow. The 12th of this music festival (in 1983) special guest singer was Barry Manilow. At this time, Lionel Richie who had been entering it to the competition section said the grumble. "Why I am an entry singer though Bury Manilow is a guest?" Please tell me which to have been evaluated higher, Barry Manilow and Lionel Richie at that time in 1983 in the United States.
  19. OH, James!!!! I’m very impressed. This is what I wanted to say exactly!!!!. Thank you for verbalizing this. I am a writer. Work to tell the person the fact and the idea in the word is done. In Japanese, I can told considerably well(!). However, when telling it in English, I always felt very impatient. Because I can be told just only part of my idea. Still, I am enjoying the communication here very much. I did not have foreigner's friend up to now. It is not only a problem of the language. The Japanese has been made to have "Masochistic historical view". I mean that, "We Japanese is disliked because of all over the world". Therefore, we Japanese might sometimes become unmanly, fear, and react excessively. So I feared making friends with the foreigner. Maybe second moon have similar feelings to me. However, I was led to Eric's music, and came here!!! It became a happy very wonderful meeting. I want to tell the gratitude to Eric who welcomed me yesterday.
  20. I read an interesting newspaper article. It is a story of the Zappu family in Argentina that travels with the car aiming at tour around the world from 2000. They took the car of the Graham-paige of U.S.-made in 1928, left Argentina over the United States, New Zealand, and Australia, and arrived at Japan. Four children were born while traveling. It is said that the travel capital is Contribution and the price of the photograph of traveling and the book. Mr. Zappu said, "I want to learn to seeing many countries, touching person's geniality, and without prejudice". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYvfXg8X_Cw Argentina is the country Andie lives in! And they ran through the United States(it's your country!!!) by driving the car named “Graham†Paige. Next, they traveled around the country where the kiwi lived and the country of new member Hihosilver, and now arrived at Japan!!! Then, they will go to Tony's wife's country next to Japan. I felt a wonderful connection from this article. Isn't it Romantic????
  21. Boopell, Happy birthday to you from Japan!!!
  22. Maybe you know that Eric was invited to Yamaha World Popular Song Festival held in Japan as a guest star in 1979. I want to inform them of the meaning of this music festival. First of all, Japan has done the seclusion policy for 200 years from the 1600's. When the country was opened to the international society in the 1800's, the main country that had learnt the basis of the country making was Germany. Many were learnt from the culture of Germany including music. Moreover, the Japanese was intercepted from the culture of the enemy country to the World War II inside by the government. Enemy country means that….United States, Britain, and a lot of other countries. It was limited to Germany and Italy, etc. that were the allies that the culture had been permitted to be enjoyed. The music of the foreign country that was able to hear it in intercepted various music and inside and Japan was only an opera and a classical music. Germany and Italy. After the war, the Japanese feels special familiarity in classics and the opera by the great remainder. Yamaha Co., Ltd. that holds the music festival is producing companys of musical instruments established in 1887. However, it was changed by the factory that manufactured weapons by the government while fighting. It is how much painful for the factory that is sure to manufacture musical instruments that play love peacefully or it is easy to imagine it. Yamaha Co., Ltd. held the music festival through time. Eric was invited to Yamaha World Popular Song Festival as a guest star. That music festival is the one having aspired both enjoyments of the excess of the national anthem, politics, and the religion, and the exchanges of people all over the world by music. It is a music festival that expressed sincere pleasure to no obstruction of my favorite music to what, and becoming the age that can be freely enjoyed. Having been invited to the music festival as a guest is Eric Carmen. It was held aspiring both enjoyments of the excess of the national anthem, politics, and the religion, and the exchanges of people all over the world by music of that music festival. It is that music festival to have expressed sincere pleasure to no obstruction of my favorite music to what, and becoming the age that can be freely enjoyed. Having been invited to the music festival as a guest is Eric Carmen!!!! I understand the reason why Eric keeps being loved in Japan now well. Attainments of classics on back ground of your music. I thought that it is one of the reasons why it attracts the Japanese. And, great feelings of Eric put in the music !!!!!! For Eric praised in that music festival, I think that there is a mission. I think the pleasure with freedom to have been chosen as a messenger who tells it to the world through music. Therefore, I am requesting it to make you the song. It's my earnest longing.
  23. I want to spend like this on Saturday. I want to plant the flower in the garden with my family. I want to talk over tea peacefully with my family. I want to cook with my family. I am good at cooking!!! However, the reality is different. It’s Sunday daytime in Japan now. I am all alone in the house. My husband took the daughter and visited "his mother's" grave. He might pray over a tomb to defend me. However, why “ his†mother's grave? I don’t understand!!! Well, She was a beautiful, gentle person. However, She was a mother-in-law for me. I talked with my husband yesterday. My sickness was found as a small tumor. However, it was not a too good type. Nevertheless, he went to “his†mother's grave. I wanted to go picnic with my family. Because my daughter getting nervous. . I don’t want to visit a grave. I wanted to go to my father's grave if going to the grave. I said to my husband so. But he is not here now. I wanted to go on a family picnic insted visiting a grave. If going to the grave, I want to go to “my father's†grave. I said to my husband so. Nevertheless, he is not here now. He made his feelings give priority more than my feelings. My word doesn't have any meaning. Therefore, it is very sad now. Such Sunday afternoon. So I hear the song “I’ll Hold Out My Hand†again and again and again……. I'm sorry for not happy story today.
  24. Wishing a speedy recovery. Prayers for little Ryan from Japan.
