If you have been good this year, tonight Santa will climb down your chimney and leave presents under your Christmas tree. (If you don’t have a chimney, don’t worry – Santa uses magic to change your air-conditioner into a fireplace. If you don’t believe me, check out Disney's The Santa Clause.)
Santa gives you presents. Did you know that you are supposed to give Santa something? In North America, most children leave some milk and cookies for Santa on a table near the Christmas tree…
Santa has milk & cookies at every house he visits – that’s why he’s so fat!
In Australia, Christmas is celebrated in the middle of summer. Instead of milk & cookies, Australian children usually leave Santa some beer and fruitcake. It’s true!
Also, in Australia it’s too hot for Santa to use reindeer. Instead, he uses 6 white kangaroos known as…
The 6 White Boomers
Of course, there’s no such thing as a white kangaroo...
Our friend Simon is the music man! I first met him when he was playing for Tripod Jimmy, one of the best bands to ever come out of Osaka…or anywhere! Since then, he has been in so many different bands, I can’t begin to list them.
His latest band is called Goodman Bad. It features Simon on guitar & vocals, Glenn on bass, and Spleen on drums.
Every month, Simon organises Inner Sky, a concert at Covent Garden, a friendly bar in Kita Horie.
This month, Goodman Bad are going to be joined by special guest Deron "The Geminiac" on keyboard.
In Japanese: 今月の「インナー・スカイ」ライブは1２月1２日(金)に行われます。Goodman Badというベース、ドラム、ギターの三人組が80年代のポップスや90年代のGrungeをAcoustic風に再現します。今回のライブにKeyboardの達人Deron"TheGeminiac"もゲストとして参加してくれるので、さらにレベルの高いパフォーマンスを期待しています。予定のない方は是非おいでください。忘年会があっても居酒屋を出る場合、カラオケではなくて、ライブを見に来て盛り上がりましょう。
Unfortunately, I have to work until late. I'll get there around 10:00 pm. Hope to see you there!
