    Trivia bits

    The geek in me is unaccountably happy that the authors consider 2000 to still be in 20th century.

    Basho Talk - Aki Basho 2016 +++ Spoiler Alert! +++

    When talking about small skillful rikishi, there really should be more mention of Mainoumi. He never was considered to be an ozeki potential though (AFAIK). Anyways, I'd be more than happy for Ura to reach Mainoumi's success...

    Historical photos ppt

    I'm usually not one to forward powerpoints with interesting or inspiring photos, but the history buff in me couldn't resist this one. Some Japan-related photos, some WW2, some US... Some are simply excellent photos. Link to the thing. If I had to choose a favorite, it's a surreal group (family?) photo of 9 European kings in 1910. I can ID poor Nicolas II (sitting in the middle) and I guess Edward VII who was the host (standing second from the left). Since I'm too lazy to do the research for the others, that's all you get. ;-)

    Japanese Scientists name element 113 "nihonium"

    Polonium wasn't named after the country where it was discovered, tho'... but after the homeland of the woman who discovered it (while working in France, I guess). /nitpick

    Any recommendation on individual songs from musicals?

    Maybe we should open a Sailor Moon songs suggestion topic, I'd have a ton (including La soldier). (Punk rocker...)

    Any recommendation on individual songs from musicals?

    And since I'm on a roll - my favorite Sailor Moon musical number: And have some Takarazuka performances: I actually prefer this version to the original musical: I just love Todoroki's voice:

    How could I have fogotten... it must be because they are in folder on their own in my music collection. :-D

    Any recommendation on individual songs from musicals?

    My recommendations for whole musicals are (in no particular order) Jesus Christ Superstar, Scarlet Pimpernel, Notre Dame de Paris and, of course, Hair.
