It's so weird seeing her so cute and casual like this
but I get it, I guess even if I was a serious person I would be like this when cats are the topic

They may have been a real person before

But her English lyrics nowadays really read like a computer wrote them... It's a bit suspect...

Yeah, there's a lot of choices where any native English speaker who's halfway talented as a writer could do a lot better.

So after seeing the album booklet scans, can confirm that ALL pictures are from that same 20 year old photo shoot (the mole is a giveaway) except 1 more centaur photo.


Retirement after the Olympics for sure.

Gotcha, I'll try to make an effort to get around to it then. I'm not going to do full-blown translations because that would be really time-consuming, Ringo writes in a rather difficult Japanese for a pop musician, and I feel like the translation I would be able to provide would eradicate all the finer points of her language. Reading the lyrics and following them along with the music is a different game though, and I'm hoping that I could extract the most important points and provide you guys with a bigger picture.

This was also one of the stronger points of Sunny and the songs tied well into each other lyrically, so I'm thinking her conceptual shenanigans will be mostly of a textual nature. Unfortunately that makes her project less clear to those here who are not Japanese speakers, but perhaps we'll at least have some justification of the concept which a lot of people are not really seeing. I'm curious myself!

Also thanks for this post, those of us who didn't buy the CD don't have to regret all that much then. I'm still hoping it comes out on vinyl though, but given the recent market trends and Reimport 2 (which was announced months after the release date), there is a good chance for that, right?
