TRANFORMERS THURSDAY with JuSTIN Dingdongpotatomouth

August 10th, 2011 by justin

I remember the days of playing guitar with the OTTOMEN in 2006. I got to feel the full phallic satisfaction of playing lead guitar. THis was my favorite tune to rock on the stratocasterblaster. This video is not good audio/video but it is rare, so eat it !

John on Drums
Misung on guitar singing
Justin on Lead phallic machine

Justday Thur. IT’S MY TIME HERE

June 9th, 2011 by justin

********WARNING! ************

******** Sad song ************

This song came out of living in Los Angeles, but really started to take meaning when I found myself in Tokyo everyday, surrounded by masses of people who never greet one another, speak a formal language to ensure boundaries are established between strangers and live alone in apartments too small to have friends over for a movie or drinks.

I shot this video with my phone.

I played two trombones on this song.

The location is mostly Isetan (the neiman marcus of Tokyo), the streets of Shinjuku and the back hall of the school where I teach.
