The past week has been challenging to say the least.

今週は苦しかったです。

I made an ill-advised financial deal, got sick, and was stressing pretty much 24/7 about mere survival and life in this rigged economy paradigm.

お金の問題起きた。病気になった。毎日、一日中で、お腹が痛くなるまでに困っていた。この世の茶番経済は本当に人々に苦しいですね。

Finally, I forced myself to run — to this gem of an album:

それでも、やっとランニングした、この素晴らしいアルバムを聴きながら:

All the way through this thing is a winner. From the comedic spoken intro, the blazing guitars and lyrical power of "Nitro," to the the cathartic mid-song screamed expletive release of "Bad Habit," and all the way to the plea for reason and truth of "It'll Be a Long Time."Sadly the band has since — intentionally or otherwise —sold out to the nth degree for the lies and the very people they were singing out against on this album. The irony is impossible to overstate, really. Still. This album is a gem.

最初から最後までこのアルバムは素晴らしいです。面白いイントロと「Nitro」のやばいエネルギーと「Bad Habit」のカタルシスから、「It'll Be a Long Time」の深い歌詞まで、このスマッシュって言うアルバムはパンクのマスターピースですよ。悲しい事けど、このバンドは最近パンクスピリットをやめて、政治的な嘘着く、コロナ茶番に信じてるダサいおじさんたちに変化していた。

In other news, the fabulous French band Phoenix have just released a new single with Beck:

他のニュースでは、僕が好きなPhoenixは、Beckと一緒に新しいシングルリリースをしました!

That was my run from the other day in the humidity and sun. Yesterday, it was typical rainy season weather, beautiful, beautiful greens and slate grays. I ran without music and finally with a little bit less stress.

それは前のランでした。その時太陽が光って蒸し暑いでした。昨日のランはちょうど日本梅雨っぽくて、天気がとても美しいでした。緑と深いグレー景色は素晴らしかった。

またね。

The place is very relaxing and beautiful. We can't really avoid Stress and anxieties. But this will defeat by staying ourselves calm always.

Covering up the sickness, stress, anxiety and hardship of weather by good marathon and time in nature is great remedy. Such excercise works much better then doctor's pills. Stay blessed.
