That video has actually been played on the several Dutch music channels. Remarkable, since the song didn't do anything in the charts.

Seems like a fun profession, directing musicvideo's. :)

Heh, you don't know how painfully close to the truth that statement is... 😲

Have you ever thought of making a living through internet? Just think of combining your interests (net, Jpop, Japan) in order to bring home some beacon. There are ideas aplenty...

;)

Hmm, i reccon most ideas would require a large financial investment.

Cyberbegging seems to be a popular these days. :D

Hm, not that large actually. You need a few reliable partners, an infrastructure and a lot confidence - and an idea.

Cyber-begging: I once thought of adding a "Please donate" button to our site, but that might have created an impression of dire need and despair, lolol, so I gave it up.

I'm actually thinking of doing just that. If only to be able to afford a proper domainname.

It's just 14€ a year to register a domain. Btw, I'm holding japanpop.net, need it? :)

Peter, I am very sorry to hear that! Have you been notified before? Here in Austria they have to notify you at least 6 weeks prior to contract termination.

Do you have any job alternatives?

Well, i got the notification today. It will take about 6 weeks before they get the permit to actually fire me.

It had to happen sometime. There hasn't been any proper amount of work in months. I had the bad luck to be the last one that started on that department. Last one in is the first one out. I wasn't the only one though.

I'm currently looking for alternatives. I've had my first job-interview already today, but i really want to check out all my options. If there's any chance for a carreerchange, then now is the time to take it.

Hmm, now i wish i didn't make fun of my friends in the IT business when they got fired. I never expected it could actually happen to me.

Career change... welp, nowadays you have to be flexible. I haven't worked in "my field" since two years, and the current job situation looks rather dim.

Perhaps it's time to take the plunge and try something completely new. Internet.....?

Well, there's one way to make money off the internet...
We could start a website with naughty bits. :devilish:
