I used to have glasses with photosensitive lenses, back in the days when they used glass. According to my optometrist (about two years ago), though, the plastic photosensitive lenses that are currently available aren't that good, so I figured that I'd stick with plain lenses, and get prescription sunglasses at some point. But the other day, a friend was wearing prescription glasses from Japan with very good (i.e., quite dark in the sunlight) plastic photosensitive lenses, so maybe there are good plastic-lens photosensitive glasses on the market now (at least in Japan

Sometimes I think that YouTube has (almost) taken the challenge out of looking for old videos and music -- things that I never thought I'd see or hear are just a click away. In most ways, it's good, but I'm almost glad to know that there are still a few obscurities left to search for.
My current never-gonna-find-it wish list includes:
- A hypothetical live video (or at least high-res audio) version of ZONE's ultra-obscure "You Can Give Song" (the song itself, and not the Miyu history clip with the same title), which appears to exist only in the thoroughly low-res audio version, which is itself hard to find (here on niconico, and on nicozon.net).
- The full video versions of Runtime's early 2000s Crystal Live shows with ZONE and other Runtimers (some footage of the 2003 Crystal Live is available on a couple of episodes of Potajyu, and there's a low-res bootleg audio version of Tomoka singing "Marble" from that same show, but not much else).
- The full movie that this awesome clip of Josephine Siao FongFong singing "Shakin' All Over" is from (a lot of old HK movies seem to exist only in versions reconstructed from damaged prints, and some have not turned up in any form).
