EAT-DANCE-BEAUTY-食と動と美と。。。。and 6th sense..第六感





happy holidays everybody!!!!!!
its been cold in nyc!!
what about in where you live???
keep yourself warm!
did yall enjoy the eclipse 2dayz ago? it looked beautiful in the city,there was no clouds in the sky,while the moon was disappearing,it looked orange-ish red,it was sooooo divine...
こんにちはあああ。。今日はヒップホップの昨日からちょっと内容をかえて。。。
月食みなさんみましたあああ??日本でも見れたとききましたが。。。
many people must have experienced that yall felt something which can be called power from nature,mother earth!
i used to feel it all the time,but since i ve been living in the city,living in a regular routine in my life,i totally forgot about this feeling.
use your ears if you have them
use your eyes if you have them
use your fingers if you have them
use your tongue if u have one

use your body....

feel!!!!! let all the sense arise!!! and make it function! i think this is very important.
寒い中、、、そして平日だけど、バーやおうちからたくさん人が外に出てつきがかけていくのを楽しんでました。
つきをこんな長くみたのはどんだけ久しぶりだっただろう。こういうのって大事だなって。。
自然は私たちにちょっとかわった姿を見せてくれる。。。ま、、とくにこんな都会に住んでる私たちには。。。癒しもくれるし、、パワーもくれる!そんな不思議な感覚を覚えた。

とにかく5感、そして第6感をつかいましょう!!


me and my homegirl akina hit up Ktown the other day for some nice korean food!!
i dont know so much about korean food actually...
but korean food are sooooo good!!i love them!
@TOFU HOUSE bcd
i think there s a branch in LA ....yeah..
this is my favorite chap chae!
we had some raw beef too.forgot what its called....

サービスよし!小皿がたくさんでてきておかわりし放題!
韓国料理いいねええ!!



this afternoon i hang out with my other homegirls,one is a dancer,the other ones are into fashion and one is fashion journalist and the other is make-up artist!
momo chan took us to a jewelry designer's house in east village.
the brand is
VERAMEAT

her name was Vera.she was so sweet and very talented.the design and products are soo elaborate and looked so interesting.she uses "dinosaurs" "dragons" "spines" "guns" "soldiers" "dogs and puppies" "deers" "owls" sooo many other animals...
she can put them all together..
like,,,
deer and spines...
dinosaur and woman s head...etc...
anyways you should check it out!
i heard that she had 6th sense..!
i could tell..
午後は友達とハングアウト。一人はファッションジャーナリストで、ももちゃんが私たちを知り合いのジュエリーデザイナーのオタクにつれてってくれました。
彼女はveraといってverameatというブランド名でジュエリーを作ってます。指輪、ブレスレット、イヤリングからネックレスまでそろってます。華奢なものからごついものまで!とてもかわいくていったら最後はまってしまって帰れない。どれもほしくなる!動物や怪物をつかった奇抜なデザインです。でも華奢につくってるかんじが絶妙です。

visit her website.you can buy on line.
she is going to open her store in east village next february.
オンラインでも購入できるそう

after this,,,i headed to the studio in williamsburg in bk for the AERIAL DANCE CLASS for the very first time in my life...
その後は
人生初のaerial danceに挑戦。ブルックリンにスタジオがあって、一時間のレッスンうけてきました。
omg,,,
i feel pain all over my body now..
do you know about aerial dance...they dance and do some routine by using silk and ropes!
that was a lot of fun.
it's different from pole dancing too!pole dancers use knees,on the other hand,they use feet...
サーカスみたいなやつです!みたことありますか??冒頭に写真がのっかってます!日本でもできる人いますよね!ほんとにすごい!ロープや布を使って空中で踊り狂います!!笑
今全身筋肉痛。ポールダンスとは基本一緒だと思いますけど、、微妙に使い方やテクニックはずれます。なぜならロープやシルクはふにょふにょですから。
anyways..that experience was so amazing! new breeze in my life,i feel so refreshing...
today was my first time.the studio was not that big but the ceiling was very high..i saw 3boy &girl dancers practicing their crazy routine back there (it did look like cirque du soleil type of thing!)
so there were 4students including me,,one was beginner and the other 2 were pretty good.even the beginner girl she was soo good.
and you know what,they make everything look easier.. the teacher helped me with the basic climbing and invert! it was way way tougher than i thought.she helped me with pulling up the rope to lift my body but my body was sinking!! lmao!!!!
my head understands what she said but body does different thing!
but it was such a lot of fun,.def i will go back.
先生はとても愉快な人で、簡単そうにロープを操ります。かっこいいわー
生徒は私をいれて4人でした。みんなとても上手で。私は最初なので、基本のクライムとインバート(ひっくりかえるやつ)
いやいやあああそれはそれは大変な姿をお見せしてしまって。なかなか頭を体がついていきません
まさにチアリーディングで勉強した身体意識!!!zeroってかんじでした。笑
自分の中に新しい風がはいってきたかんじですごくinspiring でした。




i came back from the dance class.sorry about the outfit..:( and my face...
おつかれええ。。。
check it out! this is what i got @the jewelry place! i love this design.this is vampire teeth!

PESU's birthday event with DJ premier @Soiree



last night,SOIREE was packed even though it was wednesday!
u know the venue,,CRASH MANSION in bowery st,,? and somehow the venue SOIREE is connected,,its kinda confusing,,,is it separated or connected,,,i thought the upstairs was BLVD or some,,,mane might have been changed! anyways
everybody
SOIREE!!!! its huuuge party place!!! nice.
last night was a great live painting artist PESU s birthday party and we had DJ PREMIER as a guest and there were soooo many japanese people out there! i really liked that it was some kind of mix cultural event and all kind of race was there,having a good time together!!!
music,,,dance,,,live paint! another great time after mari koda s step up 3D party @CIELO the other day...

we need this type of events where people can exchange culture,music,art,network and everything...
i felt so many things yesterday,good things and bad things.in order to make the event successful,everything has to be very organized! artist booking,,,sound checking,,,time table(performance schedule)..im not going to say much,i couldve been better honestly.
however,,,i met so many nice people,they are very exciting talented people.i liked the vibes and had a good time...its sooo funny,
i menitoned before,,,even though im japanese since ive moved here in nyc i havent met so many japanese.so it was fun and inspiring,and make me feel hustle and also help each other,not only japanese,,,net working is a lot of fun.
and music is fun.
and i love my friends.

昨日はSOIREEでPESUさんというすばらしいアーティストのバースデーイベントに遊びに行ってきました。友達がいっぱいあつまるときき、パフォーマンスもするということで。。SOIREEってなんとCRASH MANSIONと同じ入り口なの!え。どういうこと??私ちょっと困りました。昔BLVDってゆう名前で1階がクラブで下がCRASH MANSIONだったような。。とにかく、、IDチェックで早くいれてくれえええッテ感じで!だって昨日はほんとに極寒でして!!!もう風ぴゅーぴゅー死ぬ寸前でした!!

koda mariさん(ダンサー)がstep UP 3Dのパーティをcieloでやった以来の大量の日本人を見ました!!笑
テンションあがる。ほんとに日本人の知り合いが最近増えてほんとにうれしい。そしてこういうミックスカルチャーのイベントがもっともっと増えるといいと思う。たくさんあるけど、クオリティのいいものをね。。昨日は日本人だけでなく、アジア、ブラック、ホワイトすべてが混ざっていてとても楽しい感じでした。こうやって音楽やダンス、アートを通じて交流できるのって素晴らしと思うのです。
ただ、ちょっとオーガナイズの質がそこまでよくなかったと正直思いました。かなり押して押してスタートしたしね。
そういえば昨日はゲストでDJ PREMIERがきてて、わおってかんじだったけど、、友達のパフォーマンスのほうがぜんぜん楽しみにしてた私だった。笑
とにかく課題はたくさんあるけど、きのうは久々にお酒飲んでいろんな人としゃべってとても楽しい夜になりました!
すべての友達に感謝!いっしょにがんばろーぜい

DJ TOMOKO & UCCA laugh i enjoyed their performance.
いいコンビだね。


テキーラですがなにか。

アジアと西洋のカルチャーがミックスされた彼らから生み出されるサウンドとリリックがいい!
アジア人としてなんか誇りに思うし刺激されます
