On this day in music history: January 11, 1971 - “Pearl”, the fourth album by Janis Joplin is released. Produced by Paul A. Rothchild, it is recorded at Sunset Sound in Hollywood, CA from September 5 - October 1, 1970. Following the dissolution of her first post Big Brother band, The Kosmic Blues Band, Joplin regroups with a new band of musicians called Full Tilt Boogie for her fourth release. Working with Doors producer Paul A. Rothchild, the production is more polished than her previous efforts. Recording Rothchild’s favored studio Sunset Sound, it is also the first time that a CBS Records artist is permitted to record at a studio other than one owned the record label. Tragically, Joplin dies of a heroin overdose the day before sessions are to conclude on October 4, 1970. Most ironically, the song she is to record that day is titled “Buried Alive In The Blues”. The instrumental track is included on the finished album. “Pearl” (titled after her nickname) yields several songs that become part of her legend including “Move Over”, “Mercedes Benz”, “Get It While You Can” and “Me And Bobby McGee” (#1 Pop), co-written by Joplin’s former boyfriend Kris Kristofferson, posthumously becomes her biggest hit. First remastered and reissued on CD in 1999 with four live bonus tracks. It is also reissued as a 180 gram vinyl LP by Sony Music in 2011. A double CD boxed edition titled “The Pearl Sessions” containing addition and previously unreleased outtakes from the recording sessions is released on Record Store Day in April of 2012. Audiophile label Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab had planned the release of a half-speed mastered LP release in 1984, but is abruptly cancelled, though test pressings do exist. Over thirty years later, MFSL announces that the title is to be released as a 45 RPM mastered double 180 gram vinyl LP set. It is finally released on March 2, 2016, and is also issued as a hybrid SACD. “Pearl” is released ten weeks after Joplin’s death, spending nine weeks at number one on the Billboard Top 200, and is certified 4x Platinum in the US by the RIAA.


colinlanephoto STROKES 8”x10” SALE!!!
$100 (plus S+H) to first person to email me at JUST found these shots from October 5, 2002 when The Strokes were opening for The Rolling Stones. I was there to shoot live shots of The Stones for Q. All the other photographers had to leave the arena after shooting the first three songs! They couldn’t even stay for the show. Luckily for me The Strokes hooked me up with a backstage pass so we all watched the show from the side of the stage passing a bottle of red wine back and forth. Here’s Julian singing. MORE PICTURES COMING! (SOLD!)


This has become a video that has been recorded with Punio gnawing on my thigh.
It’s the first time that it’s publicly unveiled; Punio’s voice, which sounds like [he’s saying] “n, nfyuu”, is also in the video.
The “n, nfyuu” of Punio constantly saying that it tastes bad whilst gnawing on a human’s thigh is also in here.

Video Translation:

Eh, everyone, it’s been a while. Um, finally, it’s become troublesome to even just type letters, so like this, I’m using my voice to write a Tweet. Now, I’m smack in the middle of rehearsals for my front line departure [1], but today, I finished early - That hurts! Punio, that hurts! - and right now, I’m going to a certain place. - That hurts! That hurts! Wait! (LOL) That hurts, that hurts! - Where is this place?


[1] The front line departure that Sato Ryuji is referring to is the “Musical Touken Ranbu Kashuu Kiyomitsu Tanki Shitsujin”, which is Kashuu Kiyomitsu’s solo live that is scheduled to run from October 5, 2017 to October 15, 2017.

He was there. Kogarasumaru was there in my app.
Upon welcoming Kotegiri Gou, I went to bed feeling buoyant. With this, my solo departure to the front lines [1] will definitely be okay too.

Well then, today is the “FIVE” event [2], let’s enjoy it with all our hearts.


[1] His “solo departure to the front lines” refers to the “Musical Touken Ranbu ~Kashuu Kiyomitsu Tanki Shutsujin~” live which is slated to happen from October 5, 2017 to October 15, 2017. For more information about the live, please refer to this post: HERE

[2] The “FIVE” event he is referring to is the Drama “FIVE” The End of Summer Special Event that is happening today. For more information about the event, please refer to this post: HERE

And, Totani Kimito (Yamachika Tooru) responded to Sato Ryuji’s (Shimizu Toshi / Kashuu Kiyomitsu) Tweet in a show of his support,

Totani Kimito @kimitotani0507

I’ll leave the event in your care! Do your best~ 👍

Personal Note:

On the side of Ryuji’s saniwa adventures, he has actually achieved a personal goal xDDDD

In March 2017, he Tweeted about wanting Kogarasumaru: HERE

With this latest update, he has finally welcomed Kogarasumaru to his citadel xD

So, Sato Ryuji posed fans a question in his Tweet: HERE

Well, the answer has been revealed! xDDDD

When his rehearsals for the “Musical Touken Ranbu Kashuu Kiyomitsu Tanki Shutsujin” ended early yesterday, Ryuji attended the “Chou! Datsugoku Kageki Nanbaka” xD

And, he took a photo with Inagaki Seiya (Godai Yamato) and, of course, Kitazono Ryo (Uno)! ♥

(For more photos, please check out this post: HERE )

Kimeru (Mitsuba Kiji) also Tweeted about Ryuji’s attendance despite not being able to take a photo with him xD

Kimeru @Kimeru_

Even though we didn’t take a photo, Ryuji came to our performance. How long has it been!?

I’ve been continuously seeing the Toumyu DVD and the photo book though.

Good luck for your front line departure [1]!

(For the rest of the Tweet, please check out this post: HERE )

On that note, apparently quite a few Touken Danshi attended the same performance xD Other than Ryuji (Kashuu Kiyomitsu), Miura Hiroki (Higekiri), Zaiki Takuma (Ookurikara) and Araki Hirofumi (Nikkari Aoe) were also in attendance ♥

. It is true there is not enough beauty in the world.
It is also true that I am not competent to restore it.
Neither is there candor, and here I may be of some use.

I am
at work, though I am silent.

The bland

misery of the world
bounds us on either side, an alley

lined with trees; we are

companions here, not speaking,
each with his own thoughts;

behind the trees, iron
gates of the private houses,
the shuttered rooms

somehow deserted, abandoned,

as though it were the artist’s
duty to create
hope, but out of what? what?

the word itself
false, a device to refute
perception— At the intersection,

ornamental lights of the season.

I was young here. Riding
the subway with my small book
as though to defend myself against

this same world:

you are not alone,
the poem said,
in the dark tunnel.
