Pictured: Kota "Tako Method" (loser shirt), Black Cupid (on break) and Tanuki (red glasses)
We at the Cassette Cafe in Bangkok all went to Tokyo in December to take part in the Digital Arts Festival (DAF). Below are some pics from the "Overhead Night Club" project, a collaboration between Wit's "Duck Unit", Jiro and Hajime's "Soi Music/Soi Project" and Momokomotion and Cliquepar:
JAPAN in a nutshell: Momo got drunk, me and Jiro sung Bon Jovi at the top of our lungs at karaoke, I found some money on the street, Black Cupid was born*, we went to the pink floyd bar (post-brothel), me and Ote spoke to a stuffed Tanuki, Hajime taught me to spell in japanese/chinese, I got addicted to Rainbow canned coffee, met a tonne of cute japanese actors and, finally, pestered Kota to take me to a love hotel.
Before and 5 minutes after at the soba shop: Momo passed out, I had an apple and then found 7,000 yen on the floor.
Hanging Out! Me and Momo getting into the japanese spirit of "victory" and "christmas" on the lawn of the Panasonic Centre, some 80 kilometres from the centre of town... (phot and reindeer hat courtesy of Kota Sake)
*A Sketch me and Momo did for "Black Cupid", and an accompanying music vdo.
"Poison Arrow" by Black Cupid: (I'm the one with the arrows, see 02:20, 02:40 and 03:15)
And here are the lyrics so you can sing-a-long:
Who broke my heart?
You did, you did
Bow to the target, Black Cupid, Cupid
You think you're smart Stupid Cupid.
Shoot that poison arrow to my hearrrrrttttttttShoot that poison arrowShoot that poison arrow to my harrr-harr-harrrrttt Shoot that poison arrow!
(man)I thought you loved me but it seems you don't care
(girl) I care enough to know I can never love you
(mimic bow-pulling action)
(man)Shoot that poison arrow to my heartShoot that poison arrowShoot that poison arrow to my heartShoot that poison arrow etc etc etc etc
