CD Signing & On TV Tonight!

On Sunday I had another CD signing as part of my Japan Bookstore Tour to celebrate the launch of CD9.

Fukuoka’s always a good crowd with lots of people I know. In the beginning they were a little “errmmm, we’re not sure” but after the hour everyone was “genki ga demashita” – saying how it got them genki again!

Content wise was mainly CD9 as well as talking about development, India, Cambodia & China. The Slumdog Millionaire story is pretty cool isn’t it!

It was also good in the intro to play some of the member’s exclusive tracks such as Baby Monkey it’s Summer, Times Tables Songs, CD10 songs, Try again song, Genki Rules of Life and Genki Relax.

I also did a piece for tonight’s “Mentai Wide” TV show. We recorded a ton of stuff so I’ve no idea how it’s going to turn out edited up, but if you’re watching TV this evening, check it out!

P.S. the winner of June’s caption competition, chosen at random, was Val! Keep commenting to see if you win this month, and Val, which CD would you like?

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. And when I was a kid I found school to be sooooo boring... So I transformed my way of teaching. I listened to what the kids were really wanting to say and taught it in ways they really wanted to learn. The results were magical. So I'm sharing it all with you now...

    It’s just in Fukuoka!

    Speaking of which, is anyone in town (Fukuoka) and going out to see the MJ memorial tonight?

    Hey Richard, I would love to go see the MJ memorial. Do you know where about in Fukuoka it will be held and from what time? I work in Saga so can be in Fukuoka in around an hour or so.

    Hi Dexter,
    Time is from 2AM Japan time. I’m sure some of the bars must be showing it, but I haven’t been able to find out, none of the girls here know, that’s why I figured I’d give a shout out here! 🙂

    Do you have any ideas of places with big TVs that might be showing it?

    Does anyone know if it will be available on the web?

  6. richard

    CNN are running it, but usually they block web access from Japan. Ustream looks like it will be available everywhere. I dare say some of the Japan TV channels will also cover it.

    It would be much better to see it in a bar or club with other people, a couple of drinks and some dancing though!

    Thanks Richard,

    Unfortuntely I am new to Saga and it is sadly a rather quiet city with very little in the way of bars (apart from Izakaya)

    Hopefully as you say some of the Japanese TV channels will cover it. I am tempted to head to Tenjin as I am sure plenty of bars there will be showing it. Have to arrange a late arrival to work tomorrow though!

    On a side note, it is so hard to find MJ`s CD`s here at the moment! Everywhere is sold out.

    @Dexter: I’m going to try and find a place in Tenjin if I can. Email me if you make it into Fukuoka, or if you find somewhere cool in Tenjin to see it!
