I’ll write more about this in a depressing, angsty, emo-rambling poast sometime next week, which I’m sure must just make you want to run back and check this blog! *laughs* So to counteract what will inevitably be a depressing indulgence in moaning self-pity and righteous indignation at blatant government-sponsored racial profiling, I have decided to devote today’s entry to super cute and cuddly kitty kats!.
I went with the lovely Kazumi to Nekobukuro in Tokyo a few weeks ago and took lots of pictures of cuddly spoiled furry felines. Now I am a panda person, of course, and I never used to get why people love taking pictures of cats so much, but after a few shots I realised that it’s because cats are incredibly photogenic. Lucky bastards. I never come out well in pictures. And these cats just lay there half asleep and still look a thousand times better and cuter on film than I do on my best day. *laughs* Awww! Here kittah kittah kittah!
More photos of kitty kats after the jump.
A busy intersection in Ikebukuro…
This guy was not the most photogenic, but he was my favourite…
….he was so grumpy! I love it!!
As a final aside, if you enjoyed these pictures, then head over to Tien Mao’s blog to see how kitty kat photography is really done, with loving ultra-sharp shots of his beloved Mortimer, who might give the denizens of Nekobukuro a run for the award of “World’s Most Pampered Cat.”
That’s it for today. Hope you’re all enjoying beautiful autumn weather wherever you are, except for my kiwi and aussie readers, for whom it is currently late spring, early summer. Oh, and Sabine, if you want, we can go to Nekobukuro when you come visit Tokyo next month!
Now listening to: RSP – Lifetime Respect (女偏)” [female version]
I don’t know much about this group “RSP”, but I do know that this is a female remake of the original song “Lifetime Respect” by the Japanese reggae artist (don’t ask) Miki Dozan. Dozan’s version is a lot more “reggae” sounding, while this remake kind of devolves into a more j-pop-py sound. Not that that’s bad or anything, but it’s interesting to see the two approaches to it.
If you want to see the original version, you can check it out over on youtube.
