Christmas comes early!

In the form of a ‘Goodies’ page, new banner and Tatsuro Yamashita (山下達郎)! I’ve now added an organised page in which all of the stuff I upload in various posts will also be listed, so feel free to head over there from time to time and see what you can find!

Tatsuro YamashitaAlso, I spent some time and designed a new header banner. Have you seen it yet? Keep refreshing until you see some fluffy little owls. They are from a postcard design by an artist named Makoto Ambo. I can’t seem to find any information on him/her right now, but if I do, I’ll be sure to post it.

Apologies to anyone who actually takes the time to follow my updates and lack of them for so long, but I’ve been horrendously busy with a Philosophy essay on ‘Realism and Anti-Realism’. Basically the question: ‘Do colours exist?’ Sounds fun? Maybe I’ll write a bit about it in the future.

Still no new Denshi Jisho, but hopefully soon I’ll have a replacement. In the meantime I’ve been making do with Jim Breen’s JDIC. I tell you, I miss my electronic dictionary! I didn’t appreciate how useful it was to be able to just hammer out words so easily. Perhaps I’m a little too dependent on it though…

Just a short post today, but I thought I’d share this great little tune I found over on Dannychoo.com. It’s *the* Japanese Christmas song, played every year over the festive period by a guy named Tatsuro Yamashita. A little early, but why not get in the mood?

Christmas Eve by Yamashita Tatsuro

Past the deepening of night
The rain will surely turn to snow
Silent Night, Holy Night

I’m sure you won’t come
A Christmas Eve spent all alone
Silent Night, Holy Night

Doesn’t even seem as though
The feelings hidden deep in my heart
Can ever be fulfilled

I felt so sure that if it was tonight
I could tell you
Silent Night, Holy Night

Still lingering with hardly a trace,
my feelings for you
continue to rain into the night

The Christmas tree on the street corner
The glitter of silver
Silent Night, Holy Night

**********

雨は夜更け過ぎに
雪へと変わるだろう
Silent night, Holy night

きっと君は来ない
一人きりのクリスマス・イブ
Silent Night, Holy night

心深く
秘めた想い
叶えられそうもない

必ず今夜なら
言えそうな気がした
Silent night, Holy night

まだ消え残る
君への想い
夜へと降りつづく

街角にはクリスマスツリー
銀色のきらめき
Silent night, Holy night

**********
