Not Buck-Tick related, but I think some of my readers who are currently students of Japanese might be interested in this article on Japanese word processing.
Also, a quote from the new issue (Issue 69, doncha know) of the Fish Tank newsletter:
Interviewer: "Mr. Sakurai, fans wanted to know what it was you were drinking out of that mug during the scene in the recording studio."
Sakurai: "It was the blood of the village virgins."
Interviewer: "We also received many comments from fans about the scene filmed in your dressing room, Mr. Sakurai. They commented in particular on the fact that your redacted was caught on film. We'd like to hear your feelings about this."
Sakurai: "Just what do they find so interesting about an old man's redacted, anyway?"
If you haven't seen the movie yet, I guess you'll just have to clutch your knickers and find out.
