Algorithm Taiso is a segment on morning kids TV over here, courtesy of NHK, the Japanese equivalent of the BBC, which produces some fantastic programming. It’s 2 guys doing a routine where they synchronize their movements as they do a kind of “march”. Oftentimes they include others in the march. Sometimes cooks, sometimes pro-wrestlers or in the example below, ninja’s.
Miyuki found these folks through one of her communities on mixi, which is a kind of Japanese friendster. It’s a huge community (just the Algorithm Taiso one), well over a thousand people. But for the “off” meeting only about 12 people showed. A real eclectic bunch too (including us as well, of course).
We weren’t very good (well I wasn’t at any rate), but it was an awful lot of fun. Too see us in action, watch the clip below.

We ate her....
But the computer breaking thing is the relevant point. I retired my busted out old g4 (well, IT really decided to retire) and got one of them new Intel-on-the-inside iMac's. She's a beauty. She also came with some free blogging software to go along with my .mac account. So.... I've decided to give it a go.
So to follow all things Nico, please head over to the new blog.
but damn that were some tasty baby.

For rants and the occasional collected oddity, I set up another blog called "Not Nico". If sufficiently bored, please go check it out. Also, I've started a new blog just for my illustration related posts; that's over at Drawger. If you're at all interested in illustration you should check Drawger out as it's home to allot of really talented folk, fellow illustrators whose work I have admired for years.
OK, now back to Nico.
