Now that the era we live in has been transformed into one as if an empire will be dissolved, I think it would be most fun if we can run through the main stream with its method with the sense of independent label.

For “Asmakina”, the juxtaposition of its wording circles around 5 (Chinese) elements, or wood, fire, clay, gold and water, permanently. If there is wood, fire breaks out. Fire gives birth to clay. Clay does gold. And gold does water, called “interdependence”. Reversely, there is aspect of conflict for them, too (like Japanese coin-tossing equivalent, the game of “rock, paper, scissors”). Fire melts gold. Gold cuts wood. Wood absorbs water. Water puts off fire, then fire again melts gold, which will be repeated permanently likewise, called “conflict”. Asmakina stands for interdependence, all of its alphabets well juxtaposed. If you pronounce it as “Asmakinaa” (by extending the last vowel), it will come back to the first vowel, “a”, at the top of it. A good word with permanent loop as Asmakina, Asmakina… that gives out a good sound wave. It also has the meaning of “sow the seeds for tomorrow” in Japanese by sound. It also sounds like the name of a star for me to love its reverberation very much, a cool naming with such repeating good elements. While Asmakina is a company for actors, Amatorecordz is one for music. Now that the era we live in has been transformed into one as if an empire will be dissolved, I think it would be most fun if we can run through the main stream with its method with the sense of independent label. It’s been not really cool to bluntly say that your job is there to give dreams to everyone since then. But I wonder how many really believe, in this age, in becoming someone to be seen, with his / her scenes to be seen, to be adored and dreamt of to make fans think they want to be like him / her (or someone living bluntly to give dreams, well, not many). Well, you have to stand on your own before giving up on this (dream of giving dreams). Amid everyone saying “he / she has to work to make a living”, honestly I want to stubbornly stick to this style of mine. If I can dream now, the young can dream, or something like that. Well, I know it is not that easy as something no one just won’t give a try to (or something you can simply do if you just try to do), though.

If the energy as “now” is ultimate one and you are satisfied with who you are now, the future and past all will be accordingly perfected, a moment of magic, and if you can believe that state will last forever until you die, it is important to “seize the day”, the truth, or the answer, or simply great phrase.

The reasons why I will stick to independent labels are that I don’t want to be intervened in by anyone else and that, even if I am not Mongol 800, I just want to keep dreaming or win my way by showing off the works our family business creates to the world along with my colleagues. Actually, I have “not” simply aspired, since my childhood, to someone major or with generosity, like a big star in Showa era, with his own family, surrounded by 100 or 200 members all the time, since I have seen more stimulating and glittering things which I rather have sought after, which is my merkmal right now. The reason why I will stick to that is that I want to say “I do what I ‘want to’ do” and “there is nothing I ‘should’ do”. I would be happy if I could live the entire day of mine from when I wake up to when I go to bed in the world of “want-to”, and if I can live that happily, I will be for sure able to share my happiness with everyone else and I have a sense if that world shared is further expanded, the whole world will also change, a sense to go fill “with love” while ever perfecting things within my view or own reach, which I do not know really are concerned about love, yet. Then you will stop saying that your life is just like that blaming things on the constitution or president to be changed but can start to live on your own. If the energy as “now” is ultimate one and you are satisfied with who you are now, the future and past all will be accordingly perfected, a moment of magic, and if you can believe that state will last forever until you die, it is important to “seize the day”, the truth, or the answer, or simply great phrase.

Even if the young who somehow look after me wear round glasses or beard, I do not give a damn, or even if they wear hoop pierces at both of their ears to further look after me, what I truly want them to imitate is what I have got inside.

I think that all of what I have done and said are connected to that. Even if the young who somehow look after me wear round glasses or beard, I do not give a damn, or even if they wear hoop pierces at both of their ears to further look after me, what I truly want them to imitate is what I have got inside. If one comes out knowing my such feeling, and then does all those, starting with imitating my appearances or atmosphere would be frankly welcome. I feel now there are such kind of types, which I am at once glad of and a bit concerned about. Say suppose I let one play a song a bit, which may end up leading to his / her self-proclaiming that “he / she is at once an artist and actor”. What I want to tell them is “Perform 80 lives yearly on the frontline all the time for 10 or 11 years!” or something like that. I am not saying that is a great thing, but if you proclaim that you are an artist, and feel well the meaning, what it takes, joy or all those by that, you are ok. But often times they are being coaxed by their manager or office into doing so and somehow rebuilding the old defunct Showa empire, which I am looking at crumble and whose demise I do not want to be hampered, with me feeling that they are not fitted to the new era by that. Asmakina and Amatorecordz are the device to strike a fine balance between the main stream and the underground I have seen.
