I'm Still In Japan
Have started a new site collecting various essays on being an ex-pat in Japan. Am putting a lot of time and creative energy into this one, would like you to check it out at jamieabroad.blogspot.com
Also have a fairly old site with
directions to music in the Kansai area of Japan, and series of
links to some other great music related websites.
Check out the
Frisell section to this site, with my comments on CD's, CD information
and covers, and a few ruminations on Frisell.
