Japan doesn't have a noise ordinance law so there are often big vans with huge speakers announcing new record releases, political campaigns, communism and all sorts of things.   It is pretty amazing that people are allow to be this annoying legally.

This group was protesting these vans.

Good thing.

They were doing it using a loud speaker to do it.

Bad thing.

Maybe they are missing the point of their own protest...

The Polariod SX-70...  it's very cool.  I am thinking of ordering one in black.   The film is a bit expensive and I think Kai will just want to keep shooting off pictures.    I will add this to wish list along with the Fuji Film x100.

I stopped off to buy some cakes for another 'Cake Date' with Mayumi...  I really don't want to get fat so I will off set this with a pre-date 10K run.    It should keep the world in balance.
