If you go and find MILK at the top of the steps
She told MOTHER GOOSE she better know the LEDGE

She drops another load as ACER sinks ships
Look below the fresh pieces and through the rubbish

Goosey got brave and dropped her gold in a tree

Some old movie from our Christmas overnight smash hit with Lionel Richie. Pay due attention to the sensuous detail on Lionel’s facials by Simon True of Heroin Skateboards.

Jet Set Radio!!!

The Dreamcast console made it’s debut in November 1998 in Japan and was later introduced to the North America and Europe markets.
What sets the Dreamcast apart from other consoles of the time and indeed today is the high concentration of fresh, stylish, innovative and playable games. The Dreamcast console’s lifespan ended prematurely after a few years but in that time so many excellent games became available – Crazy Taxi, House of the Dead II, Samba De Amigo (with maracas controllers). There were some pretty weird, mostly Japanese only releases to boot:

Seaman – a ‘game’ in which you raised your own half fish half man from an egg via communication through a special microphone controller add on.

Tokyo Bus Guide – another ‘game’ simulator in which you learn how to erm, drive a bus accurately around Tokyo picking up and dropping off Tokyoites. Don’t bump the Kerb or it’s game over???

Rez – a fast paced shooting game with unique visuals set to a banging house soundtrack.

Get Bass – you errrr get bass fish by plugging in your fishing controller and ah,, waiting for fish.

Sega Karaoke – here you bought yet another machine add-on which fit at the bottom of the console and allowed you to download the songs of your liking via the Internet and yes, sing them through a microphone controller!

However, there was really only one specific title that caught my eye, a game called Jet Set Radio.


Graffiti, Shibuya, Sega’s arcade freshness and underneath that a really fun game that was and still is very interesting to watch and play. I made it my priority to get hold of this and a Dreamcast as soon as it became affordable and it didn’t disappoint. After a brief challenge to get the hang of the trigger boost system similar to Tony Hawks, you are invited to barge recklessly into rival crew members, rack their paint and get up on the side of a bus in broad daylight in Shibuya bus station! This game is haaawsome!!
Luckily the Dreamcast came with a serious hardware fault in terms of piracy – the laser inside can read normal CD’s burnt on your home PC. If you can find a cheap Dreamcast from Book-Off or ebay and a couple of CD-R audio disks you can burn these games and see for yourself what I’m onnabout. Below there’s a link to De La Jet Set Radio (the limited edition Japan only release) which has extra levels and characters.

You’ll definately have fun playing this game. The soundtrack is radickle, the gameplay is fun and the graphics still fraxilate my cranium over 10 years later. Keep a flying eyeball out for Bristol writer Inkie’s graffiti in there too.

とある写真家の友達

僕の知り合いで写真家として生計を立てている男がいる。僕と同じ年で、数年前にDVDコピーのバイトをしていた時に知り合った男である。写真家として埼玉の鴻巣から上京し、中目黒というリッチなエリアであるが、風呂なしの一間を安家賃で借りて慎ましい生活をしていた。そんな彼とはもう7年の付き合いである。
僕は彼の撮る写真が好きだ。
色味、アングル、構図などセンスを感じる。僕は写真に関しては全くのド素人だが、彼の内から湧き出るエネルギーを写真を通して感じるのだ。
僕は作家に本音で意見を交換する、批評するということはしたことがない。しかし最近、真っ向から本音をぶつけた。正直作家に対して本気でやりあったことはないが、彼とはそれができた。僕の意見がどう思われようと思いを伝えたかったのだ。
「何を写真で表現するのか」「なぜ写真というツールでなければだめなのか」、一から根掘り葉掘り聞くのも失礼なこととは思ったが、彼はいらいらしながらも答えてくれた。
そんなことがあって以来、彼との関係は一生続くだろうと確信した。

そのような関係が作れる作家ともっと出会ってみたいものだ。
