GLAY DOME TOUR 1999 PURE SOUL
LIVE IN BIG EGG (V)
superbly packaged in silver foil, this video is among the best glay has to offer. our favorite moments are when jiro danced around with a robot, hisashi performing an electrifying modern rendition of 'canon', takuro bursting into tears, and teru forgetting his lyrics. any fan forgetting to put this video inside her/his collection is just....one serious oddball needing some fan-to-fan counselling.

YAHOO! JAPAN AVATAR
we don't know whether its the latest, but one of the best ways to kill your online time is accessible at Yahoo! Japan with the search engine's AVATAR, a special game-like internet-based dress-up where you can choose anything from face-shape to shoes to hairstyle to accessories. users can monitor their avatar as they add on items. some items are free, others cost a few yen to a couple of hundred. after completing your avatar, check out and store its image in the online album. you'll need a Yahoo! Japan account (and japanese literacy) to play this fun creation. this one's designed by nayumi.
