  1. Shit Taro…No wonder AVEX records is bankrupt idea- & money-wise.
    The offices at AVEX’s headquarters look sterile and dead—Not like any RECORDING company I’ve seen in the US where there’s lots of color, bling, and (semi-fake) whimsy.

  2. As a Japanese girl, I react to any robot as a symbol of the kami/gods justifying my existence.
