デンマンさん。。。 “黒い行田市長”なんてぇタイトルを掲(かか)げたら誹謗・中傷で訴えられかも知れませんわよォ~。。。


(kato3.gif)

もし、そのくらいでムカついて僕を訴えるようなら、行田市長は人間的に見てうすっぺらな人物ですよ。。。

“黒い行田市長”とタイトルを書いて記事を書くデンマンさんこそ、薄っぺらな人間だと思われてしまいますわァ~。。。

あのねぇ~、僕は別に行田市の工藤正司市長が“黒い市長”だとは思ってないのですよ。。。

それなのに、どういうわけで“黒い行田市長”とタイトルを書いたのですか?

ちょっと次のリストを見てください。。。

これはライブドアの僕の『徒然ブログ』の日本時間で1月30日の午後9時39分から31日の午前3時42分までの約6時間の「生ログ」の一部ですよ。。。 赤枠で囲んだ箇所を見て欲しい。。。

あらっ。。。 1月30日の午後9時54分にアメブロのテーマのページからやって来て『行田の黒い霧と工藤市長』を読んだネット市民がいたのですわねぇ~。。。

そうです。。。

『行田市長@夢の対談』

工藤正司・行田市長批判のテーマのページのトップに出てきた『行田市長@夢の対談』を読み、その記事の中に出てきた「徒然ブログ」の『行田の黒い霧と工藤市長』を読んだわけですよ。。。

それで“行田の黒い霧と工藤市長”を簡潔に短くしようと思って“黒い行田市長”というタイトルにしたのですか?

そうです。。。 いけませんか?

でも。。。、行田市長の工藤さんが“黒い行田市長”というタイトルを見たら、いい気持ちはしないと思いますわ。。。

しないでしょうねぇ~。。。

デンマンさんもそう思うのだったら、“明るい行田市長”というタイトルにすればよかったじゃありませんか!

でもねぇ~、新宿に住んでいる浅岡夢雄君がアメブロのテーマのページから わざわざライブドアの「徒然ブログ」までやって来て『行田の黒い霧と工藤市長』を読んだのですよ。。。 だから、“行田の黒い霧と工藤市長”を短くして“黒い行田市長”というタイトルにしたわけですよ。。。

でも。。。、でも。。。、どのようにして新宿に住んでいる浅岡夢雄君が読んだと突き止めたのですか?

IPアドレスを調べたのです。。。

何度も言うようですけれど、IPアドレスを調べてもプライバシーを保護するためにアクセスしたネット市民の名前まではゲットできないようになっているのですわァ~。

僕も、その程度のことならば常識として知っていますよ。。。 実は、浅岡君は、工藤正司・行田市長のことが書いてある記事をたくさん読んだのですよ。。。 それで、どうも横田市長の自殺と関係あるのではないか? そう思って僕にメールを書いて寄こしたのです。。。

それでIPアドレスを確認したのですか?

そういうことです。。。

でも。。。、でも。。。、どうして1月30日の記録を持ち出したのですか? もっと新しい記録があるでしょう?

もちろんですよ。。。 次のリストも見てください。

これはライブドアの僕の『徒然ブログ』の日本時間で5月29日の午前5時4分から午後3時46分までの約10時間半の「生ログ」の一部ですよ。。。 赤枠で囲んだ箇所に注目して欲しいのですよ。。。

あらっ。。。 5月29日の朝ご飯を食べる前の午前6時59分にビッグロブの検索エンジンの検索結果からやって来て『行田の黒い霧と工藤市長』を読んだのですわねぇ~。。。

そうです。。。 埼玉県の草加市に住んでいる黒田 霧男(くろだ きりお)君が読んだのです。。。

デンマンさんは、またIPアドレスを調べたのですか?

そうです。。。 いけませんか?


(ip2285b.png)

『拡大する』

上の赤枠の中には“さいたま市”と書いてありますね。。。

でもねぇ~、ホスト名を見てください。。。 souka.saitama と書いてあるのですよ。。。 つまり、黒田君は草加市からアクセスしているのです。。。

。。。で、黒田君も、工藤正司・行田市長のことが書いてある記事をたくさん読んだのですか?

その通りです。。。 それで、やっぱり横田市長の自殺と工藤市長が関係していたのではないか? そう思って僕にメールを書いて寄こしたのですよ。。。

マジで。。。?

小百合さんは僕の言葉を信用しないのですか?

分かりました。。。 議論すると、この記事が長くなりますから、一応デンマンさんの言うことを素直に受け取りますわァ。。。 要するに、浅岡夢雄君と黒田霧男君が『行田の黒い霧と工藤市長』を読んで デンマンさんにメールを書いたので、今日の記事に工藤市長を取り上げたわけですか?

その通りですよ。。。 記事を読んで、僕にわざわざメールを書いてくれたのですからね。。。 無視するわけにはゆかないでしょう。。。 

でも、横田市長はもう亡くなってしまったのですから、いつまでも重箱の隅を突っつくようにして工藤市長を取り上げるのは建設的な議論とは言えないのではありませんかァ~?

もちろん、僕は横田市長の自殺に拘(こだわ)っているわけではありません。。。 でもねぇ~、僕以外のネット市民が、けっこう拘っているようなのです。。。 だから、『行田の黒い霧と工藤市長』が読まれているわけですよ。。。

でも、横田市長が自殺した後の2007(平成19)年4月22日の市長選挙で工藤正司さんが市長に初当選して、その後2011(平成23)年の選挙でも、2015(平成27)年の選挙でも無投票で当選しているのでしょう?!

あれっ。。。 小百合さんは、そんな事までよく知ってますねぇ~。。。

デンマンさんの記事を読みましたから。。。

僕は、そんな事まで書いていたかなあああァ~。。。?

とにかく、無投票で3選を果たしたということは、それだけ行田市民の支持を受けているという証拠ではありませんかァ~?

でもねぇ~、初当選した時の工藤さんの投票獲得率は36.6%なのですよ。。。 有権者にして 16,608人が工藤さんに投票しただけです。。。 2011年現在で 行田市の有権者集は  70,094人なのです。。。 つまり、 有権者 70,094人の内、工藤さんを支持したのは 16,608人だけです。。。 要するに、有権者の たったの 24%なのです。。。 工藤さんを支持していない行田市の有権者が 76%も居るということです。

でも、無投票で3選を果たしたということは工藤さんを支持している人が多いということですわ。。。 もし、悪政を布(し)いていたら、当然 行田市民が立ち上がって、より良い人物を次の市長に担ぎ上げて選挙運動をすると思いますわァ。。。

僕は、行田市民が半ばが諦めていると思うのですよ。。。

どういうことですか?

あのねぇ~、行田市の中心地、本町通りは、かつての賑わいから比べると、シャッター通りになりつつある。。。 少なくとも、僕が行田に帰省すると、寂れてゆく印象を受けるのですよ。。。 でもねぇ~、行田市だけじゃなくて、地方の町の多くが、かつて賑わっていた商店街がシャッター通りになることが珍しくないから、行田市民も特に不満を感じなくなったのですよ。。。 さらに、日本全国的に言えることだけれど、政治に関心のある人が少なくなっている!。。。 それに、夢を持ってルンルン気分で生きようと思う人も少なくなっている。。。 僕は、行田市の市民に夢を持ってもらおうと次のような記事を書いたことがある。。。

人口急減社会への警鐘


(kudo99.jpg)

日本は2008年をピークに人口減少に転じ、これから本格的な人口減少社会に突入する。

このまま何も手を打たなければ、2010年に1億2806万人であった日本の総人口は、2050年には9708万人となり、今世紀末の2100年には4959万人と、わずか100年足らずで現在の約40%、明治時代の水準まで急減すると推計されている。

(1-2ページ)

日本全国で若年女性人口が減少していることが、将来にわたる人口減少の原因となっている。

そのようななか、全体の流れと反対に若年女性が増える、もしくは減少がゆるやかな市区町村がある。 (略)

これを見ると、次の6つのモデルに分類することができる。

(125-126ページ)

 

地域が活きる6モデル

産業誘致型

工場や大規模商業施設などを誘致することにより、財政基盤の安定化を図り、住環境整備を進め、人口流入を実現させているモデルを産業誘致型と呼ぶ。

ベッドタウン型

大都市や中核都市の近郊に位置することを活かして、住環境整備を重点的に進め、定住人口を増加させているのがベッドタウン型である。

学園都市型

大学や高等専門学校、公設・私設研究機関を集積させることにより、若年人口の継続的な流入を実現し、ローカル経済を持続させているモデルが学園都市型である。

コンパクトシティ型

将来の人口減少を見据えて、従来の街の機能を中心地に集約することで、ローカル経済圏としての効率化を目指しているモデルをコンパクトシティ型と呼ぶ。

公共財主導型

国家プロジェクト規模の大規模施設の立地を契機として、地域のあり方を作り変え、財政基盤を安定させることで、人口減少を防ぐモデルが公共財主導型である。

産業開発型

地域の特徴ある資源を活かした産業振興を実現し、雇用の拡大や住民の定着を実現しているモデルが産業開発型である。

発行所: 中央公論新社

 

つまり、上の本の著者と、その研究者仲間の調査に従うと、工藤さんの行田市政では、行田市の未来はないという結論なのですよ。

それで未来のある行田市にするために、デンマンさんはどのようなビジョンを持って臨まれるのですか?

ちょっと次のバンクーバー市立図書館のカタログページを見てください。

『実際のカタログページ』

僕は2016年の1月6日に、たまたまバンクーバー市立図書館で“Extreme Engineering”というDVDを借りてドキュメンタリーを見たのですよ。。。 感動してコメントも書き込みました。。。 赤枠が僕が書いたコメントです。。。 ドキュメンタリーの中で“スカイシティー1000”が紹介されていたのです。

スカイシティー1000


(skycity1.gif)

スカイシティー1000とは、竹中工務店によって1989年に構想されたハイパービルディング。

居住施設や商業施設、娯楽施設、公園などを建物内に集約し、建物内だけで生活できるような空中都市の実現をめざす。

高さ1,000m、床面積 800haで、36,000人が居住し、100,000人が就業できる。

計画内容

高さ56mの正六角形型の凹型の段層(空中台地)を14段に重ね、下の段層を大きく、上の段層を小さくすることで全体として側面が緩やかなカーブを描くようにし、また各段層の間に隙間を設けることで、強風の影響を受けにくくする。

段層の凹んだ部分には広場を作り、それを取り囲むようなスペースを居住用などに使う。

このスペースには何箇所か隙間(スーパーカラム)を設け、火事が起きた際に被害を受ける部分を最小限にする。

高速のエレベーターやモノレールを走らせ、建物内の移動手段とする。

フリー百科事典『ウィキペディア(Wikipedia)』

つまり、行田市の中心のシャッター商店街を “行田スカイシティー2040”に甦(よみがえ)らせるのですよ。

デンマンさん。。。 そのような夢みたいな事を言わないでください。。。 市政は デンマンさんが思っているように簡単にゆくわけではないのですよ。

あのねぇ~、工藤さん。。。、 あなたには、そのようなビジョンも、国際的な視野も、本心から行田市の未来に向かって再生を図ろうという意欲も、残念ながらないのですよ。。。 それが上のリストの -57.8% (人口減少) に表れているのです。。。 つまり、行田市を背負ってたつ若者が行田から離れている!。。。 未来に向けてのビジョンを持たない工藤さんのような人が行田市長として長くとどまっているから、こういうことになるのですよ。

つまり、デンマンさんが行田市長になった暁(あかつき)には マジで“行田スカイシティー2040”が行田市に聳(そび)えるのですか?

そういうことです。

でもねぇ~、デンマンさん、それは“言うは易し行うは難し!”ですよ。。。

工藤さんにできないのならば、潔(いさぎよ)く市長を辞めて、僕にその席を譲ったらどうですか?


『行田市長@夢の対談』より
(2016年4月13日)

でもねぇ~、若いミーちゃん、ハーちゃんばかりでなく、40代のおっさんまでが、政治には興味がなくて 10代のアイドルに夢中になっているというニュースがバンクーバーのタウン情報誌にまで載るようになってしまった。

マジで。。。?

ちょっと次の記事を読んでみて下さい。。。

 


(doxaidol01.png)

『40代のおっさんが10代アイドルにハマル』

 

つまり、どういう事かと言うと、国政に対しても、県政に対しても、市政に対しても住民が無気力になっているのですよ。。。

でも。。。、でも。。。、それはデンマンさんの個人的な意見だと思いますわァ~。。。

僕は、そう思いませんねぇ~。。。 これまでに僕が言った事をよくよく考えてみれば、そうとしか考えられないじゃありませんかァ~!


(laugh16.gif)

【卑弥子の独り言】


(himiko22.gif)

ですってぇ~~

あなたは どう思いますかァ~?

行田市の住民が、市政に対して関心がなくなり、それで工藤市長が無投票で3選を果たしたと思いますかァ~?

ええっ。。 あなたも市政だとか、県政だとか、国政だとかには興味がないのでござ~ますかァ?

それってぇ、良くないと思いますわよゥ。。。

市民の一人一人が良識を持って市政、県政、国政を見守るべきですわァ。。。

ええっ。。。 そんな事はどうでもいいから、何か面白い事を話せとおっしゃるのでござ~ますかァ~?

分かりましたわ。。。 あたくしが余計な事を言ったので

あなたは、いやな気分になったのでしょうから、

気分直しに、あなたの気分爽快になるように次の曲を聴いてくださいまし。。。


(whitecliff.jpg)

いかがでしたかァ~。。。?

ところで、小百合さんが「軽井沢タリアセン夫人」と呼ばれているのですわァ。

なぜ。。。?

ご存知でござ~♪~ますか?

実は簡単な事なのですわよう。

小百合さんは軽井沢に別荘を持ったのですわ。

小さな頃から軽井沢に住むことが夢だったのですってぇ~。。。

分からない事ではござ~ませんわ。

そもそも小百合さんが軽井沢に興味を持ったのは、朝吹登水子のエッセーなどを読んだことがきっかけだったとか。。。

現在、朝吹登水子の山荘、睡鳩荘(すいきゅうそう)は軽井沢タリアセンに移築されて公開されています。


(suikyu9.jpg)

それで、小百合さんは軽井沢タリアセンを訪れては睡鳩荘に足を運んで少女の頃の事を思い出すのが楽しみなんですってよ。

そういう訳で、デンマンさんが小百合さんのことを「軽井沢タリアセン夫人」と呼ぶようになったのですわ。

とにかく、明日もデンマンさんが興味深い記事を書くと思いますわ。

こんにちは。ジューンです。

「上を向いて歩こう」がアメリカで人気が出るきっかけは

何だったのでしょうか?

通説によると、1963年の春、

アメリカ西海岸のローカルラジオ局のDJが、

異国情緒を味わってもらおうと、たまたま手元にあった

日本の曲をオンエアーしたところ、

リスナーからリクエストが殺到したために

人気に火がついたと言われています。

果たして、その話はどこまで本当なのでしょうか?

アメリカで「上を向いて歩こう」をシングルとして

最初に発売したレコード会社はキャピトルです。

同じ時期にキャピトルはイギリスの親会社であるEMIが

ビートルズのシングルを出すようにと要請してきたのです。

ところがアメリカでは人気が出ないと断っているのですね。

では、いったい誰が「上を向いて歩こう」をシングルとして

発売したのでしょうか?

その発売を決定した人の名前が

デンマンさんが描いた次のチャートに出ています。


(qchan90.gif)

デイブ・デクスター・ジュニアさんなのです。

「A&Rマン」と言われていた人で、

売れる可能性のあるアーティストを発掘し、契約を結び、

制作を担当する仕事をしていた人です。

ローカルラジオ局のDJからある日電話がかかってきて

「上を向いて歩こう」が人気が出ていると聞いて、

さっそく自分でも聞いてみたそうです。


(qchan03.jpg)

九ちゃんが日本語で歌っているので

詞の内容は理解できなかったけれど、

これならイケそうだと直感して売り出すことに決めたそうです。

つまり、ビートルズの曲はヒットしないと蹴ったけれど、

九ちゃんの「上を向いて歩こう」は直感的に

ヒットすると思ったのだそうです。

ところで、デンマンさんが小百合さんの記事をまとめて

次のサイトを立ち上げました。

時間があったら下のリンクをクリックして覗いてみてくださいね。

小百合さんの物語』

Kato, who is Adele Hugo?


(kato3.gif)

Diane, have you ever heard of Victor Hugo?

Yes, of course I have… He is one of the world-famous French writers, isn’t he?

So, you know about him, don’t you?… Actually, I’ve written an article about him and his famous novel.


(stdenis1d.jpg)


(paris104b.jpg)


(paris102c.jpg)

『パリの日本人』(A Japanese in Paris)

It is written in Japanese… So, unfortunately, you cannot read it… Anyway, in the above article I talked about his famous novel—“The Hunchback of Notre Dame.”  Diane, have you read the novel.

Yes, I read it a long time ago.

By the way, Diane, have you watched the folowing movie?

The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Trailer (1939)


(hunch05.jpg)

No, I haven’t, but I viewed the following musical:


(hunch31.jpg)

So, Diane, you like musicals, eh?

Yes, I do… Talking about Victor Hugo, is he famous even in Japan?

Oh, yes!  When I was a kid, I read a story about the struggles of ex-convict Jean Valjean.


(hugo600.png)

Did you like it?

I didn’t like it too much, but one scene was clearly implanted into my mind.

What kind of scene is that?

Well… Valjean, using the alias Monsieur Madeleine, has become a wealthy factory owner and is appointed mayor of a certain town. Walking down the street, he sees a man named Fauchelevent pinned under the wheels of a cart. When no one volunteers to lift the cart, even for pay, he decides to rescue Fauchelevent himself. He crawls underneath the cart, manages to lift it, and frees him.


(hugo601.jpg)

The town’s police inspector, Inspector Javert, who was an adjutant guard at the Bagne of Toulon during Valjean’s incarceration, becomes suspicious of the mayor after witnessing this remarkable feat of strength. He has known only one other man, a convict named Jean Valjean, who could accomplish it.


(hugo602.jpg)

How old were you when you read it for the first time.

I was ten or eleven years old, I suppose.

So, you were an avid reader, eh?

No, not really… in those days, the story of Jean Valjean was quite popular among the children of my age… so, naturally it interested me to a great extent.

Kato, have you watched the movie lately?

Not recently, but I watched it last year.


(lib70510a.png)

“Actual Page”

So, you watched it on April 8, 2016, huh? … How did you like it?


(hugo92.jpg)

I wasn’t impressed so much as I read the original story.

Talkng about Adele Hugo, is she related to Victor Hugo?

Yes, of course, she is the youndest daughter of Victor Hugo.

Adèle Hugo


(adele803.jpg)

(28 July 1830 – 21 April 1915)

 

Adèle Hugo was the fifth and youngest child of French writer Victor Hugo.
She is remembered for developing schizophrenia as a young woman, which led to a romantic obsession with a British military officer who rejected her.
Her story has been retold in film and books, such as “The Story of Adele H.

Childhood

Adèle Hugo was raised in a cultured, affluent home in Paris, the youngest child of Adèle (née Foucher) and Victor Hugo, France’s most famous writer.


(adele800.jpg)

Adèle Foucher

Adèle enjoyed playing the piano, and was known for her beauty and long dark hair.
She sat for portraits by several well-known Parisian artists.

In 1851, the Hugo family moved to the island of Jersey, after Victor Hugo was forced into political exile.
The family remained on the Channel Islands until 1870.
It was in Jersey that Adèle met Albert Pinson, the object of her obsession.

Illness and pursuit of Albert Pinson

Signs of mental illness became apparent in Adèle in 1856.
Adèle became romantically involved with a British army officer, Albert Pinson.

Pinson proposed marriage to Adèle in 1855, but she rejected the proposal.
Adèle had a change of heart, wanting to reconcile with Pinson, but he refused to be involved any further with Adèle.
Pinson continued his military career, being sent to the Sixteenth Foot Regiment in Bedfordshire in 1856, where he seldom saw Adèle.
Pinson then went to Ireland in 1858, upon promotion to lieutenant, where he was stationed until 1861.

Despite Pinson’s rejection, she continued pursuing him.
Pinson developed a reputation for living a “life of debauchery”.

Adèle followed him when he was stationed to Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada in 1863.
Adèle’s family worried for her well-being, and tried to track her whereabouts by letters.

In 1866, Pinson was stationed to Barbados, the British colonial centre in the Caribbean region.
He completely abandoned Adèle when he left Barbados in 1869.
Adèle did not find her way back to France until 1872, and in the interim, the Hugo family was unable to track her activities.

The mystery of Adèle’s life in Barbados may have been revealed in an anonymous letter to the editor—signed only “P”—published in the New-York Tribune on May 27, 1885.
The head of the Catholic mission in Trinidad, Cathonoy, gave a similar account of Adèle’s wretched situation in Barbados in a letter dated September 8, 1885.
He relates an incident where he met a Barbadian woman of African descent, named Madame Céline Alvarez Baa, who requested that a mass be said for Victor Hugo after news of the author’s death.
Curious to know the reason for Madame Baa’s interest in Victor Hugo, Cathonoy asked questions, and learned that Madame Baa had given Adèle shelter when she was abandoned on Barbados, where she was known as “Madame Pinson”.

Adèle had been found wandering the streets, talking to herself, detached from her surroundings.
Madame Baa took the initiative to take Adèle to her family in Paris.
Adèle was then left in medical care.
A grateful Victor Hugo reimbursed Madame Baa for her expenses.

Erotomania

Adèle’s obsession was a manifestation of erotomania.
Along with her other symptoms of mental illness, including hallucinations, Adèle’s condition indicates schizophrenia.

The illness appeared in other members of the Hugo family.
Victor Hugo’s brother Eugène was also schizophrenic.

She was ultimately sent to live in a mental institution for the affluent outside Paris.
She remained there until her death.
Out of Victor Hugo’s five children, Adele was the only one who outlived him.

Much of what is known about Adèle’s life and her pursuit of Pinson comes from her diaries and letters.
Adèle kept a journal while she lived on Jersey and Guernsey, which she titled Journal de l’Exil (Diary of the Exile).
She stopped keeping a diary by the time she landed in Barbados, due to her mental deterioration.


SOURCES: “Adèle Hugo”
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

How come you picked up Adele Hugo all of a sudden?

I’ve recently viewed the film: “The Story of Adele H.



(lib70509a.png+liv70509a2.png)

“Actual List”

So you’ve watched 1,636 movies so far in Vancouver Public Library, haven’t you?

Yes, I have.

So, Kato, you’re a flick maniac, huh?

You’re telling me… Look at Number 1624 in the above list.

So you watched “The Story of Adele H” on May 1, huh?… How did you like it?

I loved viewing it, which is a quite amazing movie.


(lib70507a.png)

“Actual Page”


(adele801.jpg)

Kato’s Comment

 

This is a 1975 French historical docudrama directed by François Truffaut, based on Adèle Hugo’s diaries.

It shows the life of Adèle Hugo, the daughter of world-famous Victor Hugo, whose obsessive unrequited love for a military officer leads to her downfall and insanity.


(adele804.jpg)

Her father places her in an asylum in Saint-Mandé, where she lives for the next forty years.

She gardens, plays the piano and writes in her journal.

Adèle Hugo died in Paris in 1915 at the age of 85.

Although it is an heartbreaking drama, the film almost appears like a dramedy when Adèle views the show of a greedy hypnotizer.

At the time I laughed my head off to death.

Superb is the performance of 20-year-old Isabelle Adjani as Adèle Hugo.

Did you really laugh your head off to death?

Well… of course, I exaggerated a bit, but the scene appeared quite hilarious… You should view the movie.

I think I’m gonna book the DVD.

You’d better hurry… Four people are still waiting…

【Himiko’s Monologue】


(himiko22.gif)

Well…, have you ever watched the movie of the Jean Valjean story?

If you speak Japanese, there is a Japanese version.

Here it is.

The following movie was made in 1950.


(haya01.jpg)

Jean Valjean is played by Sessue Hayakawa (早川 雪洲 1889-1973) who starred in Japanese, American, French, German, and British films.

Hayakawa was one of the biggest stars in Hollywood during the silent era of the 1910s and 1920s.

He was the first actor of Asian descent to find stardom as a leading man in the United States and Europe.

His broodingly handsome good looks and typecasting as a sexually dominant villain made him a heartthrob among American women during a time of racial discrimination, and he became one of the first male sex symbols of Hollywood.

During those years, Hayakawa was as well-known and popular as Charlie Chaplin and Douglas Fairbanks, although today his name is largely unknown to the public.

In any case, I expect Kato will write another interesting article soon.

So please come back to see me.

Have a nice day!

Bye bye …

Hi, I’m June Adams.

Kato is a real movie lover, who tries to watch 1001 movies.

As a matter of fact, he has already accomplished his goal.


(lib50909a.png)

『Actual List』


(june001.gif)

Kato watched “The Arabian Nights” or “One Thousand and One Nights” as his 1001th movie.

You might just as well want to view it.


(1001nite.jpg)


(1001nite10.jpg)

The stories in “the Arabian Nights” were collected over many centuries by various authors, translators, and scholars across West, Central, and South Asia and North Africa.

The tales themselves trace their roots back to ancient and medieval Arabic, Persian, Indian, Egyptian and Mesopotamian folklore and literature.

In particular, many tales were originally folk stories from the Caliphate era, while others, especially the frame story, are most probably drawn from the Pahlavi Persian work Hazār Afsān which in turn relied partly on Indian elements.

What is common throughout all the editions of the Nights is the initial frame story of the ruler Shahryār and his wife Scheherazade and the framing device incorporated throughout the tales themselves.

The stories proceed from this original tale.

Some are framed within other tales, while others begin and end of their own accord.

Some editions contain only a few hundred nights, while others include 1,001 or more.

“Enlarge!”

 

From: The Desk of ERIK GUNNAR
email: erikgunnar402@yahoo.com
FAX: 0044-8452992881

15-02-2017

Ms. Akira Kato
1100-2010 Robson Steet
Vancouver, BC V6G4K7
CANADA

 


(bean002.jpg)

 

Dear Akira,

I write to you in good faith and trust that you will take a moment to consider the contents of this letter.
In 2006, a Canadian man by the name of David Kato opened a high interest account with a local bank in UK.
Investments made on his behalf by the Bank saw Mr. Kato’s portfolio (initially valued at 4.8 million USD) increase by 300,000 thousand USD to 5.1 million USD by the end of the financial year.

In 2008 before the world financial crisis, the Bank received instructions to liquidate and transfer by cash, the principle (4.8 million USD) to Canada, where it was understood Mr. Kato intended to invest the money.
Arrangements were made for Mr. Kato to come into the bank and confirm the instruction but unfortunately, he never came, that was the last heard of Mr. Kato.
In 2012 when bank’s investigation revealed that Mr. Kato suffered a calamitous death.

The investigation also revealed that he died intestate.
All attempts to identify any living relatives—however distant—have yielded no results.
Mr. Kato would seem to have had no living relatives.
Having read the letter this far, two questions, no doubt, spring to your mind; firstly, what is my involvement in this and why have I contacted you?
The answer to your first question is quite simple.
My knowledge and involvement in this matter stem from the fact that I am employed by Bank as a Business Relations Manager.
It is on this basis that I decided to contact you.

I propose to make you the beneficiary of Mr. Kato’s estate with a view to you and I splitting the proceeds.
As outlandish as this might seem, I sincerely believe this venture is both plausible and achievable.
I will submit your details to my Bank as Mr. Kato’s relative.
Verifying your identity with information supplied by me then becomes a routine matter and once satisfied that you are who I say you are, the Bank will then instruct the Central Bank to make the funds in Mr. Kato’s account payable to you.
No eyebrows will be raised since you are a Canadian resident and have the same last name with the deceased.

Here in UK, the alternative is a simple one; when the funds remain unclaimed they eventually revert back to the state which will happen by the end of financial year of 2017.
In contacting you, I have explosed myself and I can only hope that by so doing, I have not compromised my livelihood and welfare of my wife and children.

I hope you will consider the facts as contained in this letter and make the decision to contact me in order to take this delicate matter forward.

 

ERIK GUNNAR


(kato3.gif)

Diane, I’ve received the above letter.


(diane02.gif)

Yes, I realize that, but something is fishy.

What do you mean?

First of all, Erik thinks you’re a woman.

I know… Most people living in North America quite often consider my Japanese first name to be feminine… That’s why I insist that my Canadian name is Kato Akira Kaato.

Kato, do you really think you’ll become a millionaire?

Yes, I do… Once I reply to the above letter, I’ll be able to receive more than one million USD… That’s what it says.

Do you really believe that?

Yes… Why not?

Don’t be an easy prey, Kato.

What do you mean by that?

Have you ever heard of a Nigerian letter scam?

Nigerian letter scam


(scam002.jpg)

 

Nigerian letter scam or an advance-fee scam is a type of fraud and one of the most common types of confidence trick.
The scam typically involves promising the victim a significant share of a large sum of money, in return for a small up-front payment, which the fraudster requires in order to obtain the large sum.
If a victim makes the payment, the fraudster either invents a series of further fees for the victim, or simply disappears.

There are many variations on this type of scam, including the 419 scam, the Spanish Prisoner scam, the black money scam and the Detroit-Buffalo scam.
The scam has been used with fax and traditional mail, and is now prevalent in online communications like emails.

Online versions of the scam originate primarily in the United States, the United Kingdom and Nigeria, with Ivory Coast, Togo, South Africa, Benin, the Netherlands, and Spain also having high incidences of such fraud.
The scam messages often claim to originate in Nigeria, but usually this is not true.

The number “419” refers to the section of the Nigerian Criminal Code dealing with fraud, the charges and penalties for offenders.

 


(scam010.jpg)


SOURCE: “Advance-fee scam”
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

If you reply to the above letter, Erik will ask you for an up-front payment—probably, a couple of thousand dollars—to obtain 5.1 million USD specified in the above letter.

No kidding! How come you’re so sure about that?

That’s the way the fraudster makes some money… Look at the above video clip.

I don’t believe it.

To be on the safe side, I’ll show you another video.


(scam011.jpg)

You see, Kato, there are so many victims out there… If you’re greedy, you’ll become an easy prey for the fraudster.

What if the above letter is a genuine offer?

I’ll tell you, Kato, it is a letter for an advance-fee scam.

How come you’re so sure about it.

Firstly, Erik writes as follows:


(bean002.jpg)

 

I will submit your details to my Bank as Mr. Kato’s relative.

Verifying your identity with information supplied by me then becomes a routine matter and once satisfied that you are who I say you are, the Bank will then instruct the Central Bank to make the funds in Mr. Kato’s account payable to you.

Erik is stupid enough to consider you as a female. The executive of the Central Bank is NOT that stupid and find out that you’re a man. He will never release the fund to you.

What if I disguise myself as a female?


(joso110b.jpg)


(xdress02b.jpg)

Don’t be ridiculous… You’ll never be able to fool the executive of the Central Bank.

Then I’ll ask you to take the money for me.

I don’t want to get involved in this scam… Secondly, how many persons named “Kato” are living in Canada?

Probably, quite a few.

Look at the following search result:


(gog70324a.png)


“Enlarge!”

“Search now!”

Wow! 11,900,000 … I can hardly believe that.

Anyway, Erik must have sent the same contents to many people whose family name is “Kato.”

No kidding!

By now, Erik might have been arrested… I searched the news for you:


(gog70324b.png)


“Enlarge!”

“Search now!”

Gee… There are 196 results.

Erik Gunnar must be dealt in one of the above news.

I’ve cheked the above articles briefy one by one, but Erik Gunnar of UK hasn’t shown up in any article.

Well… Believe me, Kato… He will… He will appear in the near future.


(dianelin3.jpg)

【Himiko’s Monologue】


(himiko22.gif)

Well…, do you want to become a millionaire?

You see, money is only means to achieve your life goal—NOT definitely an end itself.

You believe ot not, some millionaires end up with their miserable death.

Think about it.

By the way, you certainly know about this famous billionaire.

What do you think about the Trump administration?

Can you see many happy and bright aspects of his policies?

Thousands gathered near the White house in response to US President Donald Trump’s immigration ban against nationals from seven countries where Muslims make up the majority of the population.

It marked the second consecutive weekend protest organized against Trump’s policies.

Here is five Nostradamus Predictions for 2017, in which you might be interested:


(trumpnos.jpg)

However, I really hope that 2017 will be a happy year.

In any case, I expect Kato will write another interesting article soon.

So please come back to see me.

Have a nice day!

Life or Death

(diane02.gif)

Kato, how come you become so serious?  Are you thinking of killing yourself because Donald Trump has become President of the States?


(kato3.gif)

Oh no, I’m NOT… I definitely want to live at least four more years to see the demise of the Trump administration.

What if he goes for the second term?

Then I’ll live on for another four years.

Anyway, Kato, what makes you jot down the above title?

Good question!  Well…, I’ve recently watched the following movies at Vancouver Public Library.



(lib70122a.png+lib70122a2.png)

“Actual List”

On January 5, I watched “the Book Thief.”


(lib70125b.png)

“Actual Page”


(thief21.jpg)

This is a 2013 American-German war-time drama directed by Brian Percival, based on the 2005 novel of the same name by Markus Zusak.


(thief20.jpg)

A young girl living with her adoptive German family goes through hard times during the Nazi era.

Taught to read by her kind-hearted foster father, the girl begins “borrowing” books and sharing them with the Jewish refugee being sheltered by her foster parents in their home.


(thief23.jpg)


(thief24.jpg)

It is a well-crafted story that focuses on the consistent thread of humanity.

Superb is the performance of Sophie Nélisse as Liesel Meminger, the titular “book thief.”

With incredible acting and a gripping, heart-warming yet chilling story, this is one of the best war-time movies.

A warmth of humanity will probably nestle in your mind long after the end of the film.


(thief22.jpg)


(thiefanm.gif)

Another Holocaust story?

No, not really… Although a Jewish man is sheltered by the girl’s foster parents, the film focuses on the ordinary German girl and her friend as well as the war-time situation under the Nazi.

What impressed you most of all?

Well…, you see, nobody wanted to die even under the Nazi resume, but some people had no other choice even if they desperately wanted to survive.

I see…

Hitler was elected under the so-called democratic system as Doland Trump was elected in the States.

How come Hitler was elected in the first place?

…’Cause German factory workers were unhappy and unsatisfied with the on-going goverment because of the high unemployment rate.  And Hitler took advantage of the situation and blamed the Jews just like Donald Trump blamed the Mexicans and illegal immigrants.

So unhappy German factory workers supported Hitler as unsatisfied US factory workers voted for Trump, huh?

You’ve got it, Diane… Besides, Trump seems to mimick Hitler.

Why is that?

Trump is thretening Mexicans as well as illegal immigrants.  And now comes Trump’s immigration ban against nationals from seven countries where Muslims make up the majority of the population.

Another day, another anti-Trump protest, huh?

You’re telling me, Diane.  Trump might just as well order a Muslim registration.  It’s a good time to remember German Chancellor Adolf Hitler began his reign of terror by first registering Jews.

So the United States is no longer democracy’s leader, huh?

You’re right on, Diane… A corrupt political system by corporate interests and money, a militarized police force, increasing racial tensions, and an ever-increasing track record of human and civil rights violation don’t sound like pillars of a nation built on democratic ideals and personal liberty.  Anyway, after the above movie, I happened to watch the following documentary.


(lib70125a.png)

“Actual Page”


(bridge83c.jpg)


(bridge81.jpg)

This is a 94-minute documentary about suicide at the Golden Gate Bridge produced in 2007.

In 2004 alone, 24 people jumped to their deaths from the bridge.

Three bodies have never been recovered.


(bridge83b.jpg)

Other people tried to jump but, fortunately or unfortunetely, intervened by somebody else who happended to walk by.

Miraculously, one of those jumpers has survived the fall and talks to you about his feelings before and after.

We all experience moments of despair.

For most of us, the sun comes out, and then tomorrow is another day, and our days continue as usual.


(realize02.jpg)

Some people, however, chose the bridge.

More people have chosen to end their lives at the Golden Gate Bridge than anywhere else in the world.

This is a profoundly thought-provoking documentary.

Diane, listen to this!  More people have chosen to end their lives at the Golden Gate Bridge than anywhere else in the world.

Amazing, isn’t it?

Diane, have you recently heard that some Vancouverites jumped to their death from the Lions Gate Bridge?


(seawall3.jpg)

No, not that I know of.

You see, Diane, so many Americans feel lost.

Why is that?

…’Cause many Americans don’t trust the US government and establishment any longer as the following clip shows:


(lehman90.jpg)

Are you saying that some Americans lost their hopes and got so depressed that they jumped from the Golden Gate Bridge?

Yes, I think so because no Vancouverites have tried from the Lions Gate Bridge in these days.  Apparently, Vancouverites and Canadians in general are happier here than in the States.

Canadians appear happy enought to live on as usual, I suppose.

I believe so, too.  That’s the reason Donald Trump won the election.  You see, the major media predicted Hillary Clinto would be the next president, but most media ignored so many unhappy and unsatisfied American factory workers, who chose Trump rather than Hillary.

Kato, are you saying that some of the unhappy, unsatisfied Americans jumped to their death before the election?

Yes, I believe so.  That’s another reason so many young Americans applied for Canadian universities and many Americans decided to move to Canada after the election.

I know… Some Americans and even poeple overseas protested against Trump presidency.


(trumprat2.jpg)

Manhattan, New York

A great number of New Yorkers were protesting in Manhattan when they got to know that Trump had been elected as their next president.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen such an angry protest in the previous US presidential elections.

As a matter of fact, there were some other protests:


(trumpla2.jpg)


Downtown, Los Angeles



(trumport.jpg)

In Portland, USA



(trumpen2.jpg)

In London, England



(trumpjpn.jpg)

Worldwide Reactions

So many people in the whole world aren’t happy to have Trump as US president, are they?

No, they are NOT…

But why not?

Well…, if anything goes wrong, Donald Trump is likely going to press the nuclear button.  That’s the reason, I suppose, many people protest Trump’s presidency.

Many people in the world don’t like Trump’s ideas at all, do they?

No, they do NOT.

Yes, of course, I enjoyed it to the hilt.

(xmastree2.gif)

I don’t believe it… Kato, did you actually celebrate the Christian festival?

Well… Actually, I’m an atheist.

Are you really an atheist?  I thought you were a Buddhist.

No, I’m NOT a Buddhist.

So, you don’t believe in the existence of deities nor gods, do you?

To be honest with you, Diane, I believe in my own god.

Your own god? … Who the heck is it?

I think I told you before… It is a traffic cop of this universe.

A traffic cop of this universe?… You gotta be kidding me… Are you really serious?

Yes, of course, I’m darn serious.


(collide01.jpg)

As you see, Diane, our Earth runs through this universe 1,000Km per second… And mind you, there have been no accidents since man appeared on the earth… So there must have been an extroadinary smart traffic cop in our universe.

I see… So, Kato, you consider this smart traffic cop to be your god, huh?

Yes, I do.

Well … then look at the following clip.


(jesus99.jpg)

Science Has Found Evidence Of God!?

Kato, you may just as well call your traffic cop “Jesus Christ.”

hmmmm… Diane, you’re smarter than I thought you were… By the way, how was your silent night?

Oh, it was marvellous and glorious.


(silent80.jpg)

I see… So, Diane, you enjoyed your silent night at your church, eh?

Yes, I did… So, Kato, how could you enjoy this New Year’s day with me?

I’ll dance with you like Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.


(astaire2.jpg)

I didn’t know that you can dance like Fred Astaire.

Oh, yes, I do dance like a magic dancer, and I’m crazy about salsa.


(salsa022b.jpg)

I can hardly believe it.

Believe it, Diane… They say, “One who believes will be saved.”

You’d better say, “One who believes in God will be saved.”

Anyway, I’m also crazy about mambo.


(mambo1.jpg)

Can you actually dance like that?

You don’t believe it, do you?

‘Cause I’m worried too much. If you dance like hell, you might go to heaven with stroke.

Hi, I’m June Adams.

Kato is a real movie lover, who tries to watch 1001 movies.

As a matter of fact, he has already accomplished his goal.


(lib50909a.png)

『Actual List』


(june001.gif)

Kato watched “The Arabian Nights” or “One Thousand and One Nights” as his 1001th movie.

You might just as well want to view it.

(1001nite10.jpg)

The stories in “the Arabian Nights” were collected over many centuries by various authors, translators, and scholars across West, Central, and South Asia and North Africa.

The tales themselves trace their roots back to ancient and medieval Arabic, Persian, Indian, Egyptian and Mesopotamian folklore and literature.

In particular, many tales were originally folk stories from the Caliphate era, while others, especially the frame story, are most probably drawn from the Pahlavi Persian work Hazār Afsān which in turn relied partly on Indian elements.

What is common throughout all the editions of the Nights is the initial frame story of the ruler Shahryār and his wife Scheherazade and the framing device incorporated throughout the tales themselves.

The stories proceed from this original tale.

Some are framed within other tales, while others begin and end of their own accord.

Some editions contain only a few hundred nights, while others include 1,001 or more.

Trump Shock

(trump802.jpg)


(trump803.jpg)


(trump804.jpg)

So most people are worried

whether or not the following

incident will happen.


(trump007.jpg)


(diane02.gif)

Kato, it is amazing to know that Donald Trump has been elected as the next US President.


(kato3.gif)

Yes, you’re telling me… I’m pretty sure that nobody in the world—except the poor unsatisfied Americans—expected Trump to win the race.

But many Americans aren’t happy to have Trump as the next president.

How do you know, Diane?

Well…, if you see the following Youtube clip, it’s obvious.


(trumprat2.jpg)

Manhattan, New York

A great number of New Yorkers were protesting in Manhattan when they got to know that Trump had been elected as their next president.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen such an angry protest in the previous US presidential elections.

As a matter of fact, there were some other protests:

Downtown, Los Angeles



(trumport.jpg)

In Portland, USA



(trumpen2.jpg)

In London, England



(trumpjpn.jpg)

Worldwide Reactions

So many people in the whole world aren’t happy to have Trump as the next US president, are they?

No, they are NOT…

But why not?

Well…, Donald Trump is telling the world in the following manner:


(trumplv2.jpg)

So many people in the world don’t like Trump’s ideas, do they?

No, they do NOT.

But how come so many people in the world don’t like Donald Trump?

…’Cause many people know about Trump’s shortcomings and dark secrets:

10 Shocking Donald Trump Facts


(trumpfct2.jpg)

If so many Americans know about Trump’s shortcomings and dark secrets, why did they choose him as the next president?

They dislike Hillary Clinton much more than Donald Trump, I suppose.

Diane, are you saying that the Americans choose the less worse candidate of the two?

I guess so.

I’m a little bit worried about him.

What do you mean by that, Kato?

Well…, if so many people dislike Donald Trump, there might be an out-of-mind fanatic or two.

So what?

You see, Diane, if such a maniac has a gun, he or she will shoot the next president.


(trump007.jpg)

I hope, such a horrible incident will never happen.

I don’t think Donald Trump has a keen desire on gun control… That means, the probability for such an incident will increase.

Kato, don’t be so pessimistic… Look at the bright side of the next Trump administration.

Like what?

I don’t know… Look for it by yourself.

It’s so hard to look at the bright side.

Well…, what do you think about the next Trump administration?

Can you see many happy and bright aspects of his policies?

I really hope that 2017 will be a happy year.

In any case, I expect Kato will write another interesting article soon.

So please come back to see me.

Have a nice day!

Bye bye …
