Black Theory: blackitivity

           Theme music for this post:  Sanctuary / Constance Demby / Sanctum Sanctuorum


.....INHALE.....  BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL, BLACK IS POWERFUL, BLACK IS BOLD, BLACK IS AUTHORITATIVE,  BLACK IS CLASSY, BLACK IS THE STRONG ICY COLD DARTH VADOR DEATH GRIP; CLINCHED FIST TELEPATHY.  BLACK WRAPPED TIGHTLY AROUND  CREAMY TOFU COMPLEXIONED TAUT SKIN; SMOOTH COMPLEXITY.   BLACK IS  THE UNIVERSE  SPRINKLED WITH STARDUST IN THE FORM OF PLANETARY BODIES.   PITCH BLACK, EBONY BLACK, JET BLACK, ONYX BLACK, SOOTY BLACK, BLACK.  BLACKNESS.  BLACK IS NOT A COLOR, IT IS BLACK, IT IS INFINITY, IT IS BOUNDLESS, YET BOUNDED BUT ETERNAL....EXHALE......



The allure of black is powerful yet intriguing.  It is that way because it's not a color, yet we identify it as such for practical purposes.    It is the great non-color of all things.   The omni-non-colour.

"Technically black is what your brain perceives when there is a total absence of reflected light.
However when painting, artists often create their own blacks for shadows and such, by mixing a Primary colour and its opposite Secondary colour. (ie. Blue and orange) to create "shades" of black (and grey). This tends to give a painting more "life" as black is uncommon in nature." Science...



Black gives meaning to color, gives color emotion, gives it its power, gives it life.   Black defines the curves, eyelashes, hips, and  silhouettes, it defines the beauty in every single object and being.   It is the all definer.   Black provides contrast.   Black eyes, black hair, black skirts, black pumps.   Black on fair white legginess.   Blaaackkkkkkk.....


Black Messiah


Black is Tokyo, black ties, black tie events, black holes, black president, black oil, black iPhones, black iPads,  Japanese goddesses draped in blackness.



Black makes all colors stand out.   It accentuates the natural muscle tone and beauty of a woman.   Japanese women in black power suits do it for me everyday.   It is pure joy.    Power look looking at me:  Austere.  Commanding.   Intelligent.  Blackfabulous!!  Blacktaculous!!   





Ever since the late Kenzo Tange, the father of Tokyo, put ink to paper he crafted a grand scheme for how he wanted modern Japan to look.   A grand chaotic scene that some how works and blends perfectly with the Japanese and nature.    






I have wondered through the streets of  heavily foreigner populated cities like Roppongi and Azabu, and have been impressed at how well Western elements have blended in with Japanese elements.    I have seen the foreign community ambling about and speaking in Japanese with their airs, and dining in posh restaurants with sophisticates who have fine tuned their spoken English skills.    They even have the Robert Dinero swagger, and Bruce Willis appeal.   It's like they have totally redefined themselves.  Japanese men know how to sell their souls.    And even with all of that, the modern Japanese woman still maintains herself and  her appeal.   She knows how to appeal to and be appealing at the same time.    She carries herself exceptionally well in public - that cannot be denied.     From top to bottom; from the soles of her feet to the top of her head, she is flawless.    Even my staff, when 3-11 hit, they still kept themselves in front of a mirror making sure that not one single hair was out of place and that their rouge was properly applied while still working under duress when security cordoned off  passageways and access to elevators.   Basically forcing them to remain in the office for hours.       








In the morning, the commute to Tokyo is strangely aromatic.   I can smell hints of Tresor perfume, and lion heart cologne for men - mixed in with a little after-shave.   Fresh smell of Biore Shampoo here and there wafting from car to car on the express.    A sea of black suit clad Japanese with rigid faces with eyes that could pierce through the soul like a knife; beautiful, exquisitely beautiful.    A one race society is what it feels like.   That too for some reason is exquisitely beautiful and profound for me.   I am a good subordinate.  




   

I stand behind black, I back black.   One two three, strut, one two three, and strut again.   Sounds of nylons rubbing together between thighs so bobbiliciously and rhythmically, as hips sway from side to side.   Get out of my way you barbarian!   I'm marching with a sense of purpose, can't you see!?   I have a job to do.    Lay down and die, would you please?  Fuck you with a an arigatou gozaimasu and a smile.   You can never understand what it means to be a Japanese.    Makkeee meee. ...understand..... pleassssssszzzze!!




The modern Japanese woman comes in all shapes and sizes, but more often than not tend to be thin, prim, and proper.   The Tokyo woman is office savvy, and surprisingly tech-savvy, too.   They can do anything when they wear black, that is.

Shin-Okubo: Little Korea

So I finally got around to going up there to Shin-Okubo,  the land of Seoul via the Yamanote Line.  Been putting this trip off for years for personal reasons;  I am not a fan of Hanlleyu.      I knew why I came up this way, and for none other reason than the food, and maybe to bask in the nausea of Korean romanticist who steal Japanese Jukujo's souls.    But honestly, I like spicy food and stews and pickled vegetables that challenge my taste buds.    I also love the little funky cafes that line the main thoroughfares and alley ways, each with their own little eclectic menus and interior decor.     This place is Korea.  





Shin-Okuba represents more than just a place to relish in Korean culinary delights and K-pop culture, but a place where Koreans can express themselves through their culture.    You can feel the local vibe in the air as you're walking down narrow walkways and footpaths.    I have personally been to mainland Korea six times, so a lot of the nostalgia was there …

August: The Return of Souls

August is peak summer season in Japan.  We can look forward to some of the most spectacular fireworks displays and festivals in the world, especially  in places like Tohoku and Kanto regions.  August is also  the most contentious month of the year in Japan; with the end of the war and war-related guilt.    Then there's the great exodus back home for millions of Japanese.   Obon season is what it's called in Japan, and it's  where families return to their hometowns to remember their ancestors and to spend time with loved ones.  Gravestones are visited, cleaned, and washed; rice or alcohol is often placed on  miniature altars next to a  headstone.  This is a way for Japanese to reconnect with their roots; a way for them to stay grounded and founded in the ways of tradition and cultural protocol.   

For the foreign tourist, some places will be overcrowded and expensive to reach; for Japanese, this is normal and can't be helped.   Wherever you go there will be lines and h…

Japan Board of Education: Amazing Grace...?

Japan Board of Education Textbook.
Amazing Grace
Shuken Shuppan  Polestar textbook English Communication

Preface:  Japanese / Japan is  one of the leading donors in humanitarian aid around the world.   They have donated billions of yen to charities, developing countries, and startup business to just about every country on the globe.  Some Japanese have even taken matters to the extreme  to the point of poking their noses into hotspot areas like Palestine and Isreal, things the Japanese may want to avoid.  Had Japan shared its borders with an ethnic minority with its own government, the relative peace and calm of this country would be questionable.   No other country can be like nor emulate Japan.   So, where does this spirit of charity and altruism come from exactly?   Why do the Japanese feel they need to save the whole world, while caring very little for its own people?   It's the Board of Education...?  The essay below is one such example of what Japanese kids learn in school,…
