Juicy Panic/Philistines

Juicy Panic
Found this whilst reading Running the Voodoo Down.
Sometimes you randomly encounter something that reminds you that people you've never met have a totally different conception of what constitutes "music" than you.
Listen/watch the linked tune. These are some people who seem incredibly happy to be who they are and create what they have. My knowledge of electronica and Asian-precious cuteness* is strictly on the casual level, but darned if I didn’t fall in love with this – especially the slightly maniacal dancing/spinning cat. (Kinda makes you want to look if you haven’t followed the link yet, huh?)

Showing this to my significant other then resulted in my introduction to Cibo Matto and a trip to the record [sic] store.

* Not meant as a slur of any kind. There is something cute-quirky about Asian pop culture that lends itself to commodification (i.e., Hello Kitty) and becomes one of the primary elements in Asian fetishes.

[unfinished, coming soon]

Wow! That is quite simply one of the trippiest things I've seen in a loooong time.
