a The Transit Lounge: Another One Down

Back in the Day: I had a quarter life crisis, headed to Osaka, Japan for the unknown–only to discover that a passport plane ride are not necessarily a ticket to escape. Some Years Later: Settled back in Oz, the man of my dreams ended up in Tokyo for work–which is how a passport and plane ride showed me home is where the heart is. And Now: Well as luck would have it, we are about to embark on Japan Mark 3, with a baby in tow and another on the way...

Another One Down

The most recent article I wrote for ITM was posted today, on Japanese DJ Yoji Biomehanika, and linked here. He is one extremely interesting persona and his shows really are something else, although I felt the interview itself was not very good for a number of reasons, hence the article rather than the Q&A format (although I tend to think the Q&A format is taking the easy option anyway).
Let me know what you think.

Just for the sake of variety, Nathan, and extending Miss Riz's interview experience! Besides, the emperor may be a bona fide dj himself.

Sorry to miss your other comment.

hmmm - Gitte are you stoned is that why you cant use the computer right?

MRM - I have no intention of getting involved in politics and interviewing the emperor. Thanks anyway.

Nathan - what's not wrong with DJs? I am more and more bceoming extremely bored and tired of their arrogant interview styles. They're not all like that but I would say 75% of my interviews leave me extremely frustrated!! I go to a lot of effort with my questions and research and a lot of them really look at interviews and the process with contempt. It is like get off your bloody high horse, you are only a DJ spinning someone else's music!! Maybe I can interview you one day!

No, I'm not stooo....what day is it? Where am I? Gosh I am hungry. Chips chips where THE HELL ARE THE CHIPS

hehehe... CHIPS YES!

and, Rizz Lizz... hehe you might maybe, but I am not really such a interesting interview object...

Djs must have a HUGE status in Japan to have such a HUGE ego. But I have to say that interviewing them doesn't help to get them off the horse. The most dj I know are Norwegian and maybe a couple have been arrogant.. but none of these plays hard music either.. might it have some connection?

Cheers
