卍LINE
a.k.a. Yosuke Kubozuka

If you just follow the “no” of the law, if it says so, you are like a robot with your brain not working. Well, there must have been a reason for that; if you stop considering “why not?”, you are done.

If you just follow the “no” of the law, if it says so, you are like a robot with your brain not working. Well, there must have been a reason for that; if you stop considering “why not?”, you are done. It’s like you are told to be playing around in a given park, and not to “get outside of the given scope because it should be dangerous”. But that outside might be more wonderful than you’ve thought, or more of fun, yes. Don’t spoil your chances in there. Well, if I love myself, I won’t kill others, either. To be just living, for me, is fun which I am grateful of, which holds true to others, everyone, whom I as a matter of course should not do harm as the same human being.

I can sense very pure and straight loves both in “If you love me” and “Canon” to have told my wife that I am ending up singing it with pure love for my own kids.

The last song of the last album as 卍LINE was “*If you love me”. A song I’ve long known but impressive as the one sung by Koji Tamaki on his music video. Then using “Canon” that makes me sense the same groove as “If you love me” to ask AKIO BEATS to customize it was the beginning. In the stage of pre-production, “If you love me” is mixed into for a violin to join as a glue of sound to “make it very cool”. I can sense very pure and straight loves both in “If you love me” and “Canon” to have told my wife that I am ending up singing it with pure love for my own kids. The very contents of the lyrics may be more in for the love for those existing right in front of you, but also may sound as a song for loves to come to be connected.

In raising your kids, as they say, you are advised not to tell them not to do something, but telling why they shouldn’t would be more effective.

In raising your kids, as they say, you are advised not to tell them not to do something, but telling why they shouldn’t would be more effective. I some of the time talk about “drug issue” with my kids, say thinner or marijuana or even “what is cocaine?” for me to explain what they are and daddy (me) would kill them if they are seriously onto this or that, explanations understandable to them, also, for the reason why I tell them, but not to be so readily uttered in the society outside. But we do talk outright. Though their body and mind might still of a kid’s, their soul, alighting on them, could be older than mine, for us to unconsciously respect each other. Or by respecting each other or admitting that we are the same human beings, I do learn, too. I am, say, responsible for bringing them up at least until they are 20 years old, both at body and mind, as a parent, yes, but it is not that I have to but rather that I want to. I want to be, honestly, with them. Kids are artwork, well, for me, of sort. While, you know, I am not too nervous for educating them. If they overshoot, like in an ice-hockey game, I push them back, a bit to rectify their course they are on, though basically what path they will take is, you know, totally up to them. *Johnny Depp once answered in an interview: when he was asked “what would you do if your kids take on the habit of using drug like you?”, he answered like this: “What I’ve got is cooler than what’ you’ve got; so buy what I am to sell you.”. This is an extreme example, but.. Crooked, or even cool. [Laughs] What are not allowed are not. Hey, I didn’t want to be a grownup for those unconditioned rules, but he’s told me something, well, enlightening. Your kids, over time, drifting away from you is a natural phenomenon, to be more interested in the society to be a man eventually. I have been made a man by my parents, too. Parents taking care of their kids, to that extent. To be a man, right. That’s what I want to be. Mine are not delinquent, if not smart, but simple. I do not tell them to “study” or when the boy said he wanted to attend a prep, I rather told him not to. But simple, or honest, if you know what I mean. We can, like these days, enjoy ourselves better to be better connected. The next one of mine is a girl (proudly). First time. So please, Pinky (my wife, more proudly).
