It's not that I'm a Japan-o-phile.
It's Tokyo I love.
I recognize brilliance when I see it.
It's the greatest city on the planet...
one of our finest and most intricate creations.
Tokyo is Japan's answer to the Atom bomb.
a polite and resounding:
Understand this city, and you might crack the enigmatic Japanese.
A two thousand year old culture that grew fat with hubris, was destroyed and then
again and again and again.
Tokyo is constantly reinventing herself.
And you are a part of it.
She calls you to her.
You are one of her...chosen.
and you make your way to her however you can.
across oceans and land and time
eschewing your own construct
and joining with her
She promises you everything...
"It's all here for you," she says.
Devote yourself to her, she says.
Become part of her.
So I did.
The freedom was overwhelming...
it was too much,
and I broke under the pressure
clinched teeth bit out the promise
"I'll never go back."
But, she said:
"It's not like that. It's not like that at all."
"Let me show you...Let me tell you the true stories of the Tokyo Cowboys."
We have just received into the Tokyo Cowboys account the final round of funding. This will take us up to the July 31st finish line, folks. The funding comes from two existing Tokyo Cowboys investors who wanted to up their shares in the project. Thanks to you both, we are good to go!
