In Japanese culture idol (aidoru) refers to mostly female media personalities in their teens and early twenty twenties who are considered particularly cute and pretty and who will, for a period ranging from several months to a few years, regularly appear in the mass media, e. g. as singers for J-pop groups, bit-part actors, TV personalities (tarento), models in photo spreads published in magazines, advertisements, etc.

In the early 1990’s, on one of the first real long form videos that showed you it wasn’t all fun being in a rock n roll band, Jon Bon Jovi discusses Bon Jovi’s lack of critical acclaim. “The way I look at it,” he says, “is that I am so far out of fashion I am in fashion….” Then on their classic “Heartbreak Station” record, Cinderella offered the thought that “The More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same” as a first track, while in 1991 long forgotten (by everyone except MV) glam Herbert’s Tuff, made their major label debut. The title of the record kept coming into our head when listening to “Bad Blood Rising.” What Comes Around Goes Around.
Masato Suzuki, Masaaki Suzuki, Bach Collegium Japan - J.S. Bach: Concertos for Two Harpsichords (2014)

Genre: Classical | Label: BIS | Catalog: 2051

This is an enjoyable, somehow spontaneous recording of several of Bach's works for a pair of harpsichords, with the great Japanese Bach conductor Masaaki Suzuki joined by his son Masato. The high spirits of the elder Suzuki here could be chalked up to any combination of several factors. One might be freedom from the rigors of his complete Bach cantata cycle, just recently completed when this album appeared in 2014.

Genre: Classical | Label: BIS | Catalog: 1721/22

Listening to this irresistibly joyful and magnificently musical set of Bach's Brandenburg Concertos and Orchestral Suites, one is immediately struck by two thoughts. First, Masaaki Suzuki and the Bach Collegium Japan have been wasting their time concentrating on Bach's dour cantatas, and second, Bach himself was wasting his time writing his melancholy church music when he could have been composing infinitely more cheerful secular music. While Suzuki and his crew have turned in superlatively performed, if spectacularly severe recording of the cantatas, they sound just as virtuosic and vastly more comfortable here.

This book examines how Asianism became a key concept in mainstream political discourse between China and Japan and how it was used both domestically and internationally in the contest for political hegemony. It argues that, from the early 1910s to the early 1930s,
