Carnival

Purple hair
Death becomes them
I know Kung Fu
Frolicking around
Playing petunias
Flowers need to see too
Silence is golden

In style
Pulling
Verse vis!
And that's just a singer!

Samba, three times
Cat walk
Almost in sync
Floppy hat and shiny balls
Ready to punch
Put your hands up for Pierre
Awfully hedonistic
A hairdresser, I'm sure

Unbalancing the blue
Shaking that ass
One dollar please

Red sunglasses
The future so bright...

Thanking the crowd
One more time and I'll put this elbow in your eye
Who wants a beer?
And the crowd goes wild
It -is- getting hot in here
Hard to get
Playing with fire
Mr. cigarette butt and Mr. ashtray are here to get you
Spanish?
In hiding
Dancing queen
Homegrown

I was lucky enough to be in Tokyo during one of the three major summer festivals. The Asakusa Samba festival, right next door from my hotel, draws some 4000 participants from all over the world. Lots of pretty chicks in pretty costumes doing pretty moves. And the Japanese contingent showing that, indeed, east Asians can have hot booty too.
Unlucky for the participants, there were three major showers during the parade. In my hotel, in my pod, I’ve got my own TV, with an earpiece to not disturb my fellow podizens, and the news has been fawning over the many floodings in the Tokyo area over the last few days. It’s been raining for most of the week, but today, it really was like the sky opened up. Noah would have felt at home.

Though a few participants were of international origin, most were Japanese. And they loved the elaborate dress ups. I have a feeling that’s because the Japanese see carnival simply as another type of cosplay. Only, one accompanied by loud Latin music.
