J-pop's next big thing (or, dunno, maybe she already is)
It's Friday night/Saturday morning here in downtown Abiko and Our Man don't have no patience to come up with nothing very political, not just this minute, no. He's actually getting snowed under with work, so what posts there will be for the coming week will probably be skimpier (but just as colourful as ever). Anyway, here's a popular Okinawan shinga-song-rita, Kaori Futenma, whom Our Man has it on good authority is all set for the mega-big-time if this song is adopted by a SUPER BIG CORPORATION for its forthcoming May advertizing blitz. She can sing, looks good, writes her own songs and has all her own teeth (this last point rules her out of contention for high political office). If Our Man told you any more than that, he'd be forced to silence you with the utmost prejudice. Mainly because that's all Our Man knows.
