Reminds me of 's ""

if I remember correctly, Sal Paradiso and Carlo Marx were doing what I'd call "truth exercises"

Although I think they were not covering their eyes

At least, not with a cloth 😆

This is also part of my tracks about "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner". It's called "The Albatross".

It's been recorded by me on a piano -- quality is not very good, sorry...

The fff you hear by the end of the track corresponds to the arrow hitting the albatross.

The picture is the famous illustration by Gustave Doré

The music also available here:

"E allora, io quasi quasi prendo il treno..." (Paolo Conte, "Azzurro")

I don't really know much about the "Japanese Spirit" --

it would be foolish of me to believe that I acquired some understanding regarding such a complex element --

though I have the feeling that a character like Soichiro-sensei in "Fate / Stay Night" captures that same complexity

"Good" and "Bad" are concepts that cannot be applied to a Japanese behavior the same way the are applied, e.g., in Europe

Perhaps "Right" and "Wrong" are the concepts a Japanese would focus their attention on?

"Glede-eyed Ducks of Rotselaar", and the sequel, "The Lair of Lightnings".
