    Sumo, playing the tin-whistle, cooking, listening to folk-music from around the world, reading books, visiting museums, attempted bonsai growing, watching other people play football and opening my brother's letters. I also enjoy doodling.

    A few books that left their mark on me: Moby Dick, Don Quijote, The Lord of the Rings, Phillip K. Dick's short stories and The Little World of Don Camillo.

    The end?

    As you say in the video Kinta, there should be common sense, but there are some corporations that would copywrite the patterns that leaves fall on the ground, if they could. There needs to be a balance between fair use and greed. I've been watching Sumo on and off (in a very amateur and irregular fashion) since 2011, i'm still a greenhorn compared to most here, but this taking down of these channels is one of the most destructive blows i've seen Sumo as a sport/institution take, and for no good reason at all, it's self-defeating and will certainly harm Sumo's future. I'm sorry you are sad but it's with good reason, i'm sad as well. I'll be keeping an eye out for any new channel of yours because you're always amusing and entertaining, but more importantly, very obviously a great person to go with it. Sometimes we just have to keep the faith, no matter how dark times are. I wish you the best.

    TV shows and movies musical themes

    There used to be (not sure if there still is), a BBC documentary series called 'Arena', and it used a song by Brian Eno called 'Another Green World'. I always looked forward to hearing it: I'm also a huge fan of Vangelis' Bladerunner, but it's already been mentioned.

    I heard this on Scala radio just now :)
  7. Ah, i apologise, i wish i had known or i wouldn't have mentoned it. Unfortunately my memory is not great, and my friends are always teasing me for having recommended the same film or anime series to them. Edit* Oh actually it seems i was responding to someone who mentioned him in that 2021 post, but called him 'Rambla'.
  8. Ooh awesome, i'll be watching this tonight, thanks a lot
  9. I'm not fully aware of the rules on the forum, so if promoting a channel is wrong i give my apologies and fully expect this to be deleted. The main reason i make a thread is because i recently came across it and found it to be so awesome, and Japan-related, that i wanted to share. My health hasn't been the best in the past few days, and so confined to my bed i was looking to see any videos i could find about walking in Japan, and this dude does just that, walks around Japan with a really good camera, and not saying a word, so you feel like you're doing the walking. It might be a bit tame for some, but it's high-action for me right now Every little backstreet, park and destination is fascinating and very relaxing. Anyway that's what i had on my mind, i hope this finds you all well.

    Pardon this Haiku, Winter, Spring, Summer, Autumn, Just a shameless bump. (but now a serious one) For one man's dark will, Those who once loved, laughed and breathed, Stare sightless, upwards. --------------------------------------- I've enjoyed reading your haikus, i hope you are all well and safe in these sad times.

    Happy Birthday, Fujisan!

    If you've watched and enjoyed a TV series called the Sopranos as i have, you'd know that at 55, in the Mafia they'd still say you were just a kid I'm heading toward my mid 40's myself, and to be honest with you i sort of stopped worrying about becoming old, i've accepted i'm no longer young and suddenly it's not so bad, as with many things in life, worry magnifies and amplifies, when in truth we could often do without it. You're a spring-chicken mate, and don't you forget it

  14. I hadn't see that one Jakusotsu, very good There is one last UK comedy i had forgotten to mention but it's so obscure i honestly don't think anyone will have heard of it, it was called 'Garth Marenghi's Darkplace hospital', just six episodes but i loved each one, it was a parody of those 1980's detective shows that were ten a penny and all over the place back then.
  15. Well i feel compelled to do this now, it's your fault Swami The two Ronnies at their best: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CNTM9iM1eVw
