I watched this amine, and it was OK. Not great, or very original, but I did like the theme song, so here it is:

The name of the song is otome domo yo

Do any Japanese guys drool over pics of Japanese looking sweet thangs?

Or is that not done?

Well, yeah sure. I assume you mean that metaphorically. Or literally?

Not literally.

But in terms of popular culture.

Ran across this on YouTube just now as a recommendation. It's kinda chill. They call it "Sovietwave".

I'm seldom interested by modern music, but I'll make an exception:




Another piece written by Koshkin:




The right mix of order & surprise, consonance & dissonance. :)

Mongkol is a 61-year-old former logging elephant. His captive-held life was spent hauling trees in the Thai forest. His body shape is deformed through hard labor, he lost his right eye and tusk in this brutal logging practice. Mongkol was rescued and brought to Elephants World to spend the rest of his days relaxing peacefully in freedom by the River Kwai. I discovered Mongkol is an extremely gentle, sensitive elephant who enjoys music, especially this slow movement by Beethoven which I play to him occasionally in the day and night.
Playing music for elephants is this guy's thing. He's pretty good though.
