The "google fu" is weak with this one. After some google fu-ing, I've found it:

(but seriously, you guys know that there's the google "search by image" option, you just go to the regular image search and than you have a tiny camera icon on the right of the search box, and you click there and the rest is simple.. although in fairness, for some reason, it doesn't work in Opera for me, just Explorer)

Re: All I Got Left is My THREAD BOMBS!

I've tried the Google search by image option on my smartphone a couple dozen times, and it has yet to ever come up with a good match. Most often, it does little more than a weak color match.


ETA: I love this video they did right after the tsunami in Japan, to encourage change in the world:



They have an old-school Pet Shop Boys / Kraftwerk vibe. And their movements are awesome.

Although I still have difficulty telling them apart from rooks and ravens**, the picture tells us that these are two crows meeting together. Given that... what is the collective noun for crows?

Cheers for this, quite a nice find. I'm not really into J-Pop as such (more "roots" when it comes to international), but I was pleased to find this album and both videos in the UK iTunes shop. Rafts cheaper than the CD/DVD advertised on the World Order site.
