Brandon Sun (Newspaper) - July 6, 2002, Brandon, Manitoba A8 JULY 2002 THATS LIFE ASSOCIATED PRESS Japanese pop duo Puffy Ami and Yumi Yoshimura After conquering Puffy to invade with eclectic pop BY ERIC TALMADGK Associated Press TOKYO Ami Onuki and Yumi Yoshimura have been at the top of the pop charts in hosted their own TV and inspired enough dolls and even shoes to fill the Tokyo and theyve sung in We had this image of singing behind chicken and people throwing beer bottles at us if they didnt like our Onuki said of their performance at the South by Southwest festival two years their first Instead of being drenched in they got And a bit of a the twentysomething known in Japan as is preparing to begin a 10city North American tour that will start off small on July 6 at the 500seat Roxy in Los include two shows in San Francisco opening for the and conclude at the Horse Shoe Tavern in Toronto on July Its a whole new experience tor Yoshimura We have no idea what to In North they will go by the name Puffy to avoid confusion with Sean Diddy who used to go by the name The pop goddesses also will shed many of the frills that their superstar status affords them in Instead of they will tour on a Instead of playing to they will settle for If you are popular in the United you are known throughout the Yoshimura But we arent going about this with the idea that we have to make a big We dont mind doing it on a kind of small and just having a really good Just having a good time pretty much sums up Puffys Their eclectic style of music emphasizes catchy tunes that are easy to sing along Deep or brooding it is not one of their hits was about how great it would be to eat a crabmeat Their 1996 debut Asia no Junshin True had a Beatles ring to it and was a millionselling success in Several more hits Michael Hill of Bar None which released Puffys An Illustrated History in the United States last They have created a kind of pop art that is fun and on Puffy singles have been used on TV ads for everything from computers to lingerie to soft But the Puffy as they like to be are serious about their We are confident in our Onuki In our popularity involves not just our music but also our and the twists to some of our But in that wont be much of a We will have to make it purely on the merits of our We are really looking forward to Onuki and Yoshimura have a look that for teenagers across Japan and some other parts of Asia is the epitome of For an they appear in Tshirts and torn their dyed hair in their nails painted green and They giggle and fidget like little but somehow manage to exude confidence at the same Onuki said she and Yoshimura will basically perform the same show in North America that they do in They are studying though they still plan to sing in If the performers are having a really good I think the audience can feel Yoshimura Thats what we are hoping to get Puffy AmiYumis tour dates and cities are Los July 6 San July 89 July 12 July 13 July 16 July 17 July 19 New York July 20 July 21 July I dont know much about being a but Ill bet Id be darling at Dorothy Parker LADY of the just east of 18th Park Avenue shop cafe Summers curse ants Summer is a carefree time of when our thoughts turn to the possibility that our flesh will be stripped from our bones by millions of razorsharp At least my thoughts ever since a gang of ants started a colony somewhere in my which is located in my home in South In for tax this office occupies 248 per cent of my homes square Heres the situation Ill be sit ting in my usual work in which I put my feet up on my I leave my legs on the because I have detachable my legs are firm ly attached to my which are propped up on my desk while I ponder the kind of question in my role as a leading opinion I am often called upon to such was Which is a fun nier animal wolverine ANSWER While I am pondering I will sud denly realize that something is crawling along my leg a sixlegged organism that has flourished on the and par ticularly South for millions of years the Bee its an Immediately I leap to my whapping at the ant in a violent Sometimes the ant has penetrated deep into what medical doctors refer to as The Undershorts which means that I am in danger of whapping myself right into the alto section of the if you know what I I am using tiny tweez DAVE BARRY or ers with special rubber to gently cap ture the ant and return to its snug ant Not I kill the But I dont want to say because when I wrote a column about killing a giant flying insect in my I got a LOT of irate mail from wildlife comparing me unfavourably to Then I go back to but within 10 theres ANOTHER ant on and I am once again on my whapping at my This has gone on for several weeks and eventually the obvious question arose in my mind Wouldnt The Groin Whappers be an excellent name for a rock band But also I am wondering Why are these ants so interested in my body I we can assume theyre looking for right right next to my body is one of the worlds most abundant sources of ant nourish ment My My desk has never been and consequently is covered with a thick layer of a substance known to chemists as snack goo a congealed mixture of onion pep peroni General Changs chicken extra and the fine residue of an estimated 14 trillion Cheez My desk could feed a standard ant colony for well into the next so the logical question is Who was General Chang And isnt it kind of a weird honour to associate a military leader with a mem ber of the poultry family not generally known for its courage Would you want to be a soldier following General Chang into battle with the phrase General Changs chicken resonating in your mind But the other logical question is with the National Snack Goo Reserve sit ting right are these ants walking around on ME they intend to eat And while I have been able to hold them off so far via it is only a matter of time before they figure out that they can win if they attack en masse French for in a big bunch of Ants are capable of this kind of behav Back in seventh grade English I read a story called Leiningen versus the about a guy in Brazil who owns a plantation that gets attacked by a gigantic mass of vicious ants that eat everything in their kind of like col lege except the ants leave less of a What I remember vividly about this story is when Leiningen tries to thwart the ants by flooding a moat around the the ants use twigs and leaves to build a thus displaying far more intelligence than any guest I have ever seen on Maury My concern is that if the ants in my office are even half that its only a matter of time before they get The police will find my skeleton in my office stripped feet up on the with no clue as to who perpetrated the crime except for the cryp tic threeletter animal
