Shall we begin with some quality ogling?

I take free trips to Japan inside my head.  Would you like to join me?

Let’s watch NHK.

I don't watch much TV, but my husband, Chupa, plays video games and leaves the PS4 on when he's done, in case he feels like playing again (this is why he leaves forty music gear things on at all times too).  After fifteen minutes, the PS4 switches to the TV, which is set to NHK, so I see four seconds of a show here and 1800 seconds of a show there.

I'm too lazy to meditate, but have a high tolerance for slow, soothing narration explaining peaceful and sometimes dull footage of obscure plants emerging from the forest soils of sparsely-populated prefectures.
