reverse imports.

so of course getting imported japanese games or music or whatever is pretty expensive. it didn't really occur to me that the reverse could be true. Are imported CDs from the US really around the realm of 100 US dollars?

this came about this way.

relatively recently, i youtubed [my Piano Phase Remixed 8-finger chart]. someone commented on it, and when i looked at it, i noticed that there was one "link" to my video. When i followed the link, i found that it was embedded in the [blog of some bloke in japan].

i don't read kanji, so i grabbed one of my coworkers who hasn't read japanese in a while, but told me that the page basically said, "check out this remix of Steve Reich's stuff! I like it a great deal and i might buy the CD even though it's like $100."

is that accurate? she admitted that her translation skills are a little shoddy.

on another note, a nearby coworker's cell phone is going off, and the ringtone she has is in mixolydian. Maybe i should write ringtones. I wonder how much money i could make in creating standard ringtones for phones and be all innovative using different sorts of scales. i bet i'd get fired because i'd eventually want to involve microtonality, and i'd be stubborn about it when given rebuffs like "TARGET AUDIENCE". c'mon. everyone needs a little microtonality in their life.
