Tokyo's Junichi Usui : A thirst for knowledge and noise.
I met Junichi Usui in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. He's from Tokyo. He smiled a lot, told wonderful stories, and was an extremely nice fellow. He seemed endlessly interested in Indonesia, and soaked in all the knowledge he could. We became fast friends, and that has continued since I moved to Harbin, China in October.
Since then, I've been following everything the man has said. He constantly messages me on Facebook about things he's found, things he's currently listening to. He once messaged me about the atrocities of "Unit 731", and told me he wanted to come to Harbin because of it. If you don't know what this is, look it up. The point is that the man has a lust for knowledge that is really inspiring. He's began making lists of things, music, and good things to check out, and posting them on his website.
His current undertaking is a random playlist of music around the world. His lists are always exhaustive, and worth checking out. This particular one includes music from Lebanon, Palestine, the U.K., Italy, France, all around Europe...the U.S.A., Indonesia, Nepal. I don't even know where he finds half of this shit. I'll probably ask him about his methods after I hit the publish button. You should go here and dive into this. Knowing Junichi, you'll find something new that you like.
Be well out there.
