I'll leave the serious post for tomorrow when I've had more time to think about it.
I had a dream last night (always an ominous start to an LJ entry...)
I dreamt that I'd woken up and was going about my morning routine while listening to the radio. I never listen to the radio, it's always my iPod, but this morning I had a news report on.
The news report was talking about some murder that had happened and had exclusive live audio of the police raiding the home of the suspected murderer.
There were lots of noises of doors being broken down, police officers shouting and just full pandemonium breaking out as they secured the building and searched for the suspect.
Eventually things quietened down and all that could be heard was the voice of the chief police officer addressing the suspect, detailing the crime he was being accused of (all I know is that it was a murder) and reading the suspect his rights.
The suspect was GACKT.
The police chief was Chief Wiggum from the Simpsons.
I don't remember the rest of the dream in detail, but I do remember that GACKT hired Lionel Hutz as his lawyer, lost (of course) and ended up sharing a cell with Sideshow Bob.
WTF? The only episodes of the Simpsons I've seen since coming to Japan were the few I saw in England during Christmas and February. Where the hell did all of that come from?
The suspected murderer bit I can understand....
