Now that I’ve got that out of the way, I might as well have another little stab at this topic. This is what it was about. wu-san wanted me to expand on something I’d asked previously:
I f****** wish he’d explore a line he throws up in more detail.
“Would you really listen to this (music) if it wasn’t Japanese?”
Christ, it’s something I always think about, however menacing or impartial it may be.
Would I be listening to J-music if it wasn’t from Japan? In my original response, the 18-year-old me said it was something I find myself pondering about quite often. Nowadays? I no longer think about it. Firstly, it really is of minimal importance. Secondly, I now have (what I feel is) a better answer.
