how can ppl read THAT much...
dang muppet u live on a different planet where a day has 48 hours....?

cool....

anyway, thanx to shirenu, who posted the link i was able to read 'dakara ikiru' from tsunku.
i really liked how he talked about his wife, looking back on the early years of his marriage.
such a brave and strong woman.
And of course Tsunku was brave too!
can you imagine, speaking the last words with your own voice to your wife and children?

and he said, the most important thing in life is to be grateful.
and he wanted, and still wants to make the people say: 'wow! that is something only tsunku can do!'


and when i look back now, nobody can write and compose a ballad like him.
but to be honest in 1000 word i could not say what his work means to me.

Tsunku and H!P, Tsunku and Morning Musume, they just belong together.

there was never a substitute for any of the members.
there is no substitute for tsunku.

An author I had read back when walden books was still in the malls(he is a local writer and the store had signed copies). Recently looked him up and am getting to know his Shepard pen names work.
