  1. This is why I don’t go for big banks anymore – they’re all jerks!

    Loving Radio Paradise, thanks for the link!

    Disappointed there is no picture of Soseki’s robot!

    Anxiety Magazine should really have more followers.. shouldn’t it?!


    1. In re the robot: This is one of those modern, Internet news articles, which announces that something is GOING to happen, Real Soon Now. So I’m guessing the ‘robot’ is running on a mainframe in Nishogakusha University. According to this article the ‘android’ will be unveiled in time for Soseki’s ‘death-date’ on Dec. 9. Hold your breath!
