having three small kids of near age is like having three broken alarm clocks, that go off randomly all throughout the day and night. It’s loud and chaotic. Still it’s fun, rewarding and always an adventure. I can’t take for granted how fortunate we were to be able to have 3 healthy kids born almost 2 years apart each time. The hard part is ahead, but for now, the kids love each other and continue to grow together. Couldn’t ask for much more than that. #長男 #Dくん #長女 #Aちゃん #次女 #Mちゃん #MyBabies

応援してくださる皆様へ 9月25日に、第三子となる女の子が誕生いたしました。 3人の中で一番大きく生まれ、胸板厚めのたくましい元気なベイビーです。 それでも、腕の中で抱いた時のあのか細い泣き声を聞くと、懐かしさと共に愛おしさが込み上げてきます。 歳の近い子どもたちが、成長のスピードや個性は様々ながら、これまで健康に育ってくれていることに、改めて感謝の思いでいっぱいになりました。 娘には、兄姉ほどのわんぱくさは求めないので… 家族からの愛をしっかりと受け止めて、自由に朗らかに、そして愛される人に成長してくれることを願っています。 更に賑やかさを増した我が家を、今後とも、どうかよろしくお願いいたします! With love & gratitude, クリス・ハート 令和元年9月25日 #BabyGirl #誕生 #beautiful #ThirdChild #感謝 #trilogy #ありがとう

[continued: part 2] There is a beautiful silver lining to this problem of overwhelming input of information and increased sensitivity. If you still have the ability of empathy and can feel for others. We now also have the ability to see the greatest joys play out before us. A miracle birth, special graduations, or a simple moment of happiness that was shared with the world. We have the ability to see a problem, act on it, and see, in real-time, the lives it changes. We have the power to care and the power to change. So no we’re not too sensitive. Not too easily triggered. We’re just people who still have the capacity to feel, and the capacity to help others so that we all end up a bit happier in the end. #GettingBetter

Is society too sensitive? [part 1] Are we too triggered? Too easily offended? I have spent so much of this last year or two pondering this and consuming countless instances of pain and suffering from around the world. Even throughout my career, I have heard the stories of so many people who are hurting, and struggling and just trying to get by. It penetrates so deeply and makes you so immensely aware of how many people there are in the world and how much hurt we experience. So the original question...are we too sensitive? I think the answer is no. We are not too sensitive. If anything, we may be leaning toward the more disturbing alternative that we are not sensitive enough. What we are, is far more aware than any other time in history. We are always aware of the billions of people alive on this planet. We are aware of our singular presence amongst that massive number. With widespread access to news and information 24/7, not only do we know what happens halfway across the world, we can see it in realtime. The suffering of someone is not some rumor. It’s not an urban legend or joke. We see it as if it happened right in front of us. It unfolds right in front of us in real-time. So we are not hearing about trauma and pain, we are feeling it. It can be overwhelming, and for some that overwhelming reality causes them to feel desensitized and detached. They step back and wonder why everyone is so emotional and so invested. They recall simpler times when people could “take a joke” or “weren’t so easily triggered”. The rest of the world is consumed by the massive task of caring. Caring not just about the people in their immediate circle, but caring for the people they don't know, who remind them of someone. Caring for the present, and the future. Caring for victims, and caring for people who could potentially suffer the same pain if we don’t act. #Triggered #Empathy

#Repost @rolaofficial ・・・ 昨日はとてもショックをうけました。今ブラジルでは大規模な山火事が3週間続いています。なのにこの件はほとんどのメディアが取り上げていません。今ブラジルではもう80パーセント近くの森林が消えています。アマゾンの森林は地球の20パーセントの酸素を生み10パーセント近くの生き物が生息しています。毎日ニューヨークシティの大きさの森が地球から無くなっています。森が無くなることで地球温暖化はさらに加速し、これから様々な問題が発生します。私たちが何を食べるか、買うかで私たちの未来が決まります。みんなでこの事をリポストをしてシェアしましょう😢🙏 #PrayForAmazonia I am very shocked that the Brazilian forest has been burning for 3 weeks now and there has been very little media coverage on this devastation. Brazil’s forest, the largest forest in the world, provides 20% of the earth’s breathing capacity. Research shows that the Brazilian forest is home to 10% of the world’s species and it contains 4,000 different plants. Everyday a forest area, the size of New York City, is lost. The land is then used to produce items to meet human demands, such as livestock farms, Palm oil, etc . What we eat, buy or do is vital to our future environment. Please share with others about what is happening to our planet and what is happening to the Amazon Forest🙏

#Repost @wildlifeplanet ・・・ The lungs of the Earth are in flames. 🔥 The Brazilian Amazon (home to 1 million Indigenous people and 3 million species) has been burning for more than two weeks straight. There have been 74,000 fires in the Brazilian Amazon since the beginning of this year - a staggering 84% increase over the same period last year (National Institute for Space Research, Brazil). Scientists and conservationists attribute the accelerating deforestation to President Jair Bolsonaro, who issued an open invitation to loggers and farmers to clear the land after taking office in January.⁣ The largest rainforest in the world is a critical piece of the global climate solution. Without the Amazon, we cannot keep the Earth’s warming in check. The Amazon needs more than our prayers. So what can YOU do?⁣. 1. As an emergency response, donate to frontline Amazon groups working to defend the forest. Donate to one or all of these: @amazonfrontlines @rainforestalliance @amazonaid @amazonwatch @savingtheamazon @amazonconservationteam @wwf @rainforesttrust @rainforestactionnetwork - please comment with more! 2. Consider becoming a regular supporter of the Rainforest Alliance’s community forestry initiatives across the world’s most vulnerable tropical forests, including the Amazon; this approach is by far the most effective defense against deforestation and natural forest fires, but it requires deep, long-term collaboration between the communities and the public and private sectors. Link in bio.⁣ 3. Stay on top of this story and keep sharing posts, tagging news agencies and influencers. 4. Be a conscious consumer, taking care to support companies committed to responsible supply chains.⁣ Eliminate or reduce consumption of beef; cattle ranching is one of the primary drivers of Amazon deforestation. 5. When election time comes, VOTE for leaders who understand the urgency of our climate crisis and are willing to take bold action—including strong governance and forward-thinki

I don’t know why so many celebrities keep sharing this but seriously..it needs to stop. Not to mention these types of fake posts come up often, the biggest problem is people not acknowledging how terms of use work. If the terms (that long list of rules and guidelines no one ever reads) stipulate something you don’t agree with unless there is an option to opt-out within the app or service, then your only other realistic option is to STOP USING THE SERVICE. Making some public display of disagreement will not allow you to just use a service any way you want. Regarding the claims of this little message itself, if you’re worried about what any service is doing with your information, click on the “terms” link and read it for yourself. They tell you exactly what information they take and how they use it. If you disagree with it, delete your account and go to another service. #StopTheMadness

I’ve spent a year trying to better understand the world. I had hoped I would find new truths and clarity. In that aim, I failed. I understand this world far less than ever before. While the violence and cruelty of our time are not unprecedented, it is unique to our time. Despite all our resources, information, historical references, and assumed better knowledge, we continue to see a world that is filled with violence, hate, and cruelty. We should know better. We should do better. We know what the outcome of hideous violence is. We have seen the results of it. Today is marked by one of the worst incidents of unusually cruel, and unforgivable violence. Decades ago, there was the use of a weapon so inhumane, so damaging, and so lingering in its impact on the world, and yet we continue on, finding new ways to continue the cycle of senseless and unforgivable violence. Today it is not just about bombs. Not any more. Now we must look at all of the lives lost to senseless violence around the world and make a choice. Will we do better, or will we take another spin around the wheel? I hope we will choose peace, love, and understanding. I hope no more lives will be lost. No more tears shed, no more families torn apart. Our time is short, and I hope everyone gets to spend that time living it, instead of just suffering through it. #NoWar #NoViolence #NoMoreExcuses

The internet is a fast place. Seems news of the change came a few hours ago. @kimkardashian thank you for reconsidering. I still think everyone should come to Japan. There is so much to experience and so much to learn. There is beauty here that I hope the rest of the world will truly see, and fall in love with. #Japan #ExperienceJapan #ItGotInMe #ItWillGetIntoYouToo

#RePost #ExperienceJapan #CultureIsNotATrend @kimkardashian come out to Kyoto. See it’s beauty and love for tradition and you’ll gain some wonderful insights. The Mayor of Kyoto, @kadokawadaisaku seems to be ready to welcome you! “Ms. Kim Kardashian West Kimono Intimates, Inc. I am writing this letter to convey our thoughts on Kimono and ask you to re-consider your decision of using the name Kimono in your trademark. Kimono is a traditional ethnic dress fostered in our rich nature and history with our predecessors’ tireless endeavours and studies, and it is a culture that has been cherished and passed down with care in our living. Also, it is a fruit of craftsmanship and truly symbolizes sense of beauty, spirits and values of Japanese. In recent years, we see not only Japanese but also many foreign tourists wearing Kimono and strolling around in Kyoto and cities in Japan. It is a proof that Kimono, that we are proud of as our traditional culture, is loved by people from around the world. We are currently undertaking initiatives nationally to make “Kimono Culture”, symbol of our culture and spirits, registered to UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage list. We think that the names for “Kimono” are the asset shared with all humanity who love Kimono and its culture therefore they should not be monopolized. I would like you to visit Kyoto, where many Japanese cultures including Kimono have been cherished, to experience the essence of Kimono Culture and understand our thoughts and our strong wish. Yours Sincerely, Daisaku Kadokawa Mayor of Kyoto”

These don’t make sense @aftershokz I always expected a trade off with bone conduction. Most of them are terrible, but it’s convenient to hear music and your surroundings at the same time. As a parent it’s a miracle, but also for working out and regular use. @aftershokz has always been the one to provide quality. I always expected a trade off though. You could only expect so much. Bass would never come through, or it would vibrate too much or always be a bit large in size. So how is it that aftershokz have done it again? How do you make it smaller, provide louder clearer sound with proper bass and barely any distracting vibration?? The Aeropex feel like listening to regular earbuds...but they’re not. I can hear cars passing by and people talking to me, or my kids shouting their heads off lol. I recommended the Aftershokz titanium as standard...then they came out with aftershokz air...so that became the new standard...and well here we are again...Aeropex. The new standard for this technology. Shots fired, the bar is raised again. Color me impressed. #aftershokz #aeropex #boneconductionheadphones

Today I’m also proud to celebrate the release of “Young At Hart”, sung by Corey Hart and Paul Young on Corey’s new album “Dreaming Time Again”. It was an honor to co-write and co-produce this song with Jeff Miyahara and Reiko Yukawa. The song was brought to life by the incredible combined power of Corey Hart and Paul Young’s singing voices. I am grateful to Corey for allowing us the opportunity.

Time passes quickly. It’s been a tough time. Around this time 2 years ago, it was the last half of my 2nd 47 Prefecture Tour. My son had just turned one, and midway through the tour, I found out there was a hole in my eardrum. This would cause ringing in my ears during performances, and pain and discomfort during travel. I still had fun during the tour, but I wasn’t sure if it would heal. During the tour, I gained citizenship and found out my daughter would be born that year. My team gave me time to rest after the tour to take care of my health and family. From there I decided to plan for the future. I started my extended music studies and made difficult decisions. A lot has happened since then and we often don’t consider what’s really happening behind the camera and keyboard with social media. It all looks glamorous and happy, but we all are working hard each day and getting through hard times. It has been a rewarding 2 years and my ear has finally healed well. During this time I’ve returned to do songwriting, producing and film scores. It’s been great to spend time with my family and I look forward to the mystery that is the future. #Thinking #Past #Present #Future

News was out yesterday about @dcappellamusic coming to Japan. Thanks to @jeffmiyahara I was able to help a fantastic project. Working with Jeff, @kuraakihori and @dekesharon to bring new life to some of Japan’s favorite Disney songs was a total honor. You’ve never heard these songs done this way before and I can’t wait for you all to hear the results of talent and hard work from Dcappella! They don’t just sing in Japanese, they *SANG* y’all! Check out their album, their current American Tour and Upcoming Japan Album and Tour! You won’t want to miss it! #dcappella #disney #japan #produce

I’ve not had the honor of meeting @jussiesmollett, but nonetheless, the news of the assault against him breaks my heart. This cannot continue. This cannot be allowed. The worst part is this is our fault. We have to take action and stand against hate in all its forms. He did not need to be a victim of a crime like this, but we’ve taken our time and made excuses and put off what should not be put off. Every day we delay, another person is beat, battered or killed because of ignorance and hate. I am sorry that this continues to happen. I stand with you in these hard times and I am committed to change. #endhate #Repost @michaelbjordan ・・・ Stand with my brother @jussiesmollett sending you light and love. Be strong 💪🏾 We got you

@nurasound has made my favorite headphones. Hands down, the best headphones I’ve ever had the pleasure of owning. The cost is up there but it’s worth it. Having the connectivity options you need from USB-A, USB-C, lightning connector and analog cables make it versatile. I use it for songwriting, mixing and just casual listening. What surprised me recently was the noise cancelling. While not advertised as a noise cancelling headphone, my recent 10 hour flight was super quiet because of these headphones. If you want to rediscover your old music and a new world of sound, check them out! #nuraphone #headphones #notsponsoredbutiwishitwas 😂 🎧

Tech thoughts: While there are plenty of tablet/laptop hybrids out there, I’ve been in the apple ecosystem for a decade and it works for me. Recent talks ask, can the iPad be a laptop replacement? It depends on what you use a laptop for. For me, in my needs as technician before my debut and after my debut, my iPad was my laptop. It’s done more than I expected it to, but it takes customization for your needs. My biggest recommendation is pick up the Kingston mobile lite g2, g3 or pro. It’s a wireless hub/SD card reader that allows you to attach USB drives. These can be accessed from your iPad/iphone via a local network created on the device. Next, pick up the app Documents from the developer Readdle. It’s the closest thing to finder on the iPad, and it allows you to access networked drives. This solves the external drive problem most people have. These are my recommendations but there are of course tons of alternatives. #techtalk #ipad #laptopreplacement

People from many different walks of life are honoring the life of a man who helped champion champions. I used to watch old marvel movies and cartoons, and Stan’s voice was the constant energetic narration that introduced you to the world. I would read the collection of comics my dad had, and we went to conventions together. It was a special bond I had with my dad that is due to the work of folks in the comic industry. It’s cherish that and even over the past decade, I’ve watched the marvel cinematic universe alone, here in Japan because the memories mean so much. The world lost Stan Lee, but I hope more of us can be like Marvel’s Stan Lee. The guy who jumped into the stories and encouraged us to be engaged, be inspired and stay tuned for the next adventure. Rest In Peace. #stanlee #excelsior

昨日のZEPP TOKYOライブは楽しかったな!久々のロックライブでMUD FRIENDSというイベントのWaiveさん、ムックさん、Psycho le Cémuさんはね、 昔から僕はよく聴いてたバンドが揃っていた最高なライブでした。 素晴らしかった。ボーカル練習のために僕がよく歌ったWaiveさんの「いつか」、ハードロックバンド時代のライブで歌ったムックさんの「絶望」とギター練習したPsycho le Cémuさんの「聖~excalibur~剣」。思い出の曲沢山あって本当に楽しかった〜 #ミニMyHistory I went to see a packed show last night that reminded me of my days in rock music. We had some great shows back then, but over my time doing music sometimes you don’t have shows go as expected. I remember a time where a poorly promoted event resulted in only 2 people coming to our show. After that I decided to be more careful. Booking shows is hard. The show last night was so great. There is a lot of talk lately about this topic. It’s hard for people to understand. Even if only 2 people show up, an artist wants to do their best. However both the audience and the fan know that only 2 people showed up and it creates an odd tension. It’s like reserving a table at a restaurant. You wouldn’t book a table for 30 people if only 3 people were going to show up. Having such a large table and paying for a large table, when something more suitable for 3 people would have been better, will obviously make for a strange evening. Live shows are like this. When you book the right space for the right number of people, everyone can have a better time. If you don’t, both the artist and the fans suffer. This was a lesson I took with me to help get new shows over the years and to eventually meet new fans. Every artist wants to give their best for their fans. To do so takes a lot of work from a lot of people. When you find that team and everyone works together, great things happen.

#MyHistory #Part3 It was about this time 10 years ago that I began my preparation for my relocation to Japan. Something I had worked on for 10 years finally came around, and I got the chance to work in Japan. It wasn’t necessarily how I imagined I would get here, but a chance is a chance. I stopped band activities, packed up my equipment, and sold off everything I wasn’t taking with me. I didn’t even consider what I would do if I ever needed to go back to the states because, in my mind, it was absolutely a one-way trip. I closed my bank accounts, sold my car, and went to start a new life. It is hard to describe what it means to start life over in a new country as a young adult. I was 24, and still adjusting to adult life. While navigating adult life, I also now had to adjust to the new culture, language, and situations. I worked for a company that specialized in automated retail. As soon as I got to Japan, I then had to start traveling around Japan to install and tend to various machines. Learning all these technical terms in Japanese, and continuing music at the same time while traveling the country every week was hard. You don’t really notice how lonely things can be until everyone you know is an ocean away, and no one is there to help you figure out the new things that come up. Within a year of moving here, I found opportunities to sing. After appearing on a TV show on Tokyo MX, I met an incredible Vocal Teacher who became an incredible source of support. I knew I wanted to take on whatever came up, so despite my anxiety over being a solo artist in Japan, I practiced music by putting videos up on Youtube and began performing at various live houses each month in between my busy work schedule. There were many days where I’d work for 24 hours, traveling and repairing machines, then come back to Tokyo to do rehearsals and live shows. Plenty of times I pushed myself beyond my limits, and felt like quitting, but the momentum did its thing and more opportunities came.

#RIP Damond “Rei” I don’t even remember how we met, but it was just as I started my first bands some 15 years ago. We stay connected and talked about metal music, Japan and band troubles. You were a friend that opened my eyes to the wrongs in the world. You showed me what it was like to feel a responsibility for a world that often times isn’t kind to people. You were a champion for others no matter what troubles went on in your world. He loved metal music, loved Japan, had dreams goals, and lots of love. He is gone too soon. I still can’t process the loss of someone who in many ways felt like family. I wish the world as a whole got a chance to know him the way I and his other friends and family did. You may not know it world, but we just lost one of the greatest people to bless this planet with their presence and love. Rest easy brother, you’re finally home.

During the hard times leading up to now, when I wasn’t sure where I was going next, it always helped to look back to see how far I’ve come. Over the last few years, I decided to try and get an idea of the greater distance my blood had traveled in order for me to be here, and by extension my son and daughter. Thanks to @africanancestry I have the largest part of my puzzle complete. Africa is no longer a vague mass of land where unknown ancestors came from. In a more clear sense, I know where the origins of my story are. I know better now, how far I’ve come, as I continue to look forward toward where I’m going. #MyHistory #AfricanAncestry #PartOfTheStory #Mali #Ghana

This is an issue that does not care about race, age or borders. We have the power to stop it, but we must recognize that we also have the obligation to stop it. It doesn’t matter if we know victims personally or not, when it happens to anyone it is a serious crime and a danger to everyone. We need to not only believe victims but we also need to stand by them, support them, and help them heal where we can. #Repost @annehathaway ・・・ I wish Dr. Ford so much peace in her bravery. #believesurvivors #wearehere #weareher #ibelievechristinelaseyford #metoo #timesup

The nature of social media and entertainment requires people to be more appealing, entertaining and marketable than ever before. As young people growing in this circumstance, you and others may come to treat yourselves as products to be sold, promoted and exploited. We are people. No matter how much pressure you feel, remember you were always a person long before expectations turned you into a product. The most valuable thing you contribute to this world is “You”. Your individuality, your vision, your voice. Never lose your value as a person. You’re far more valuable as a person than you are as a product. #KnowYourWorth

#myhistory #part2 18 years ago, at age 16 I graduated high school and began my journey to get to japan. Music was one way I thought I might be able to get to japan. It is hard to live in a new country. I did not get a college degree, so I needed nearly 10 years of relevant job experience to qualify for a visa in japan. I had no idea how, I just figured I’d do whatever could get me closer. I worked at a supermarket, electronics store, home improvement store, worked on private jets at San Francisco’s international airport, I worked for DHC USA, worked for SFPD, and finally worked as a technician for vending machines. This work experience eventually allowed me to get a job in Japan and start my new life. It’s impossible to know what life has in store for you. People often said my goals were impossible, but I was too hardheaded to quit. I don’t believe in the cliche saying “just believe in yourself and your dreams will come true.” I didn’t always have confidence in my dream. I didn’t always think I’d make it. I found that faith in the unknown was what got me through. Faith that unknown possibilities could somehow fill in the gaps and I would adjust and get closer to my vision. If you have a dream, just do anything. Keep moving and growing and changing with your circumstances. It may not work out, but your experience will give you new opportunities.

#MyHistory #Part1 I started my musical journey in 2003. 15 years ago as a clueless kid with a crazy dream to get to japan via music. I taught myself guitar and learned to write my own music. I joined some bands and did shows. I always sang in Japanese, which is difficult to do as regularly as I did in an English speaking country. I put together showcase lives and opened for Japanese bands touring the states. I had no idea where these small efforts would take me.

A person is lucky when they can make a living in the business of entertainment, and very lucky if they can maintain it for their entire lifetime, but that is rare. Entertainment is a passion for many who participate in it and more often than not people give more than they receive. Whether it’s money, or privacy, or freedom, entertainers give so much for the sake of expressing themselves and entertaining people. I have nothing but respect for Geoffrey Owens. I am proud of the jobs I had before becoming a professional artists. There is as much satisfaction in those jobs as I have for my current career. Respect to everyone working to make a living and enjoy their lives. #Repost @malcolmjamalwar ・・・ Repost @angelaegibbs Brother Owens’ response. By the way? OWENS IS A YALE DRAMA grad!!

「It’s my Happiness You’re my Happiness 幸せな気持ちを世界に広げよう It’s my Happiness You’re my Happiness 心を重ねて だってWe are family 泣きたくなる そんな日もある だけど僕らはみんな一緒さ 悲しい時はみんなで泣いて 嬉しい時はみんなで笑おう It’s my Happiness You’re my Happiness 一緒にいればそれだけで楽しいのさ It’s my Happiness You’re my Happiness 手と手をつなごう だってWe are family」 この曲を制作した時、famのみんなに大切なメッセージを伝えたかった。 全国回って、直接famのみんなの前に歌ったり踊ったりして、そのメッセージを伝えられたかなと思いましたが、本当はうまく伝えられなかったかも。 「みんなが大切だよ」 そのメッセージがちゃんとみんなに届けてなかった事って本当に悲しい。 数年前でもSNSを休んだ事もあったけど、それって休業中の間にはまたやりたくないな。 とりあえず相変わらず僕はみんなのメッセージをもちろん読みますが、返事する事ができません。何か勘違いがないように、そして嫌な気持ちにさせたくないから、そのルールをいつも通り守らなきゃいけない。 僕には 本当に! みんなは大切なfamだよ! 今でも僕の事を応援してくれて 本当に感謝しています。 いつかまたfamという家族で仲良く、元気で一緒に歌える日まで頑張ります。 #WeAreFamily #みんなは一緒さ #仲良しでね #SNSを楽しもう

“You listen to me. You say you don't want to tell me how to live my life. So what do you think you've been doing? You tell me what rights I've got or haven't got, and what I owe to you for what you've done for me. Let me tell you something. I owe you nothing! If you carried that bag a million miles, you did what you're supposed to do! Because you brought me into this world. And from that day you owed me everything you could ever do for me like I will owe my son if I ever have another. But you don't own me! You can't tell me when or where I'm out of line, or try to get me to live my life according to your rules. You don't even know what I am, Dad, you don't know who I am. You don't know how I feel, what I think. And if I tried to explain it the rest of your life you will never understand. You are 30 years older than I am. You and your whole lousy generation believes the way it was for you is the way it's got to be. And not until your whole generation has lain down and died will the dead weight of you be off our backs! You understand, you've got to get off my back!” -from Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner- This quote impressed me when I first saw the movie in my 20s. Now at 34 and a father of two, this saying has more significant meaning to me. The biggest flaw we have is that as we age, we become defiant toward change. We come to believe that the world has always been as we have experienced it and that it should forever be the way we remember it. We burden future generations with our selfishness and the weight of our self-importance. I do not want to put that weight on my children. The world has always changed and will continue to change, and it should change. I look forward to the creativity and discoveries that await the next generations of young dreamers. #招かれざる客 #GuessWhosComingToDinner

Today I reflect on “Peace”. I’ve spent most of the past few months, studying, working and contemplating. I’ve been trying to make sense of a world that doesn’t make sense. For all the beauty we have in this world, there are such horrible things that manage to linger on as well. I feel like we should already be better, but wanting is not the same as doing. So today, thinking about peace, equality, love, respect, and a better future is not enough for me. We must commit ourselves to the actions that create peace. From the little things like being nice to the people around you to the big things like holding the world to a standard of peace. There is no simple solution or an easy way. If we want peace, we must make it. It’s not just prayer and hope. It’s a shared commitment. Let’s bring peace to the world. #NeverForgotten

#ThrowbackThursday #TBT Budokan concert in between my first and second 47 prefecture hall tours. Crazy number of songs. crazy preparation. My family came to see the show. My 2 month old son was hospitalized a few days prior. So many things happened but it was a long time goal to play budokan. I am grateful for everyone who came to see the show and all my tours. I have spent 9 years traveling this country between two professions. If there is anything I would like to say to people, it’s “come to japan!” It’s a beautiful country with so much to see. There are so many experiences to have. Come before the Olympics! Come for the olympics! Come back after the Olympics! Every time will be a new experience! #cometojapan

I've been on a journey to trace my family roots lately. Through DNA testing and hunting down tons of documentation over the span of 200+ years I've had mixed results. There is a significant European presence in my DNA for obvious reasons, and that side of my history is easy to trace. The African side is much harder to track due to a lack of documentation from before the mid to late 1800s. History paints a difficult reality. One that shows up in documents like this one that was shared online by someone else. A rejection letter from 1959 on the basis of race. Between this letter and the civil rights act of 1964, my parents were born. So in many ways, it reminds me of how recently things have changed, and how much has not changed. I consider myself and my family a very lucky example of growth over the years, but I would never say we are an example of the norm. I grew up in California, not the south. My parents had a college education. I am lucky, and more than anything else grateful for the people who overcame so much for me to be here, and by extension, for my children to be here as well. My goals now are to learn from the past. The good and the bad, and stop our cycle of repeating old mistakes. For my children, I hope we see a world of equality, opportunity, and respect for everyone. #roots #grateful #historyiscomplicated

Parenthood: For about a year now, I have dedicated myself to a much slower work schedule, for the sake of a sort of paternity leave. My son is almost 2 and half years old, and my daughter is 9 months old. When my son was born I was beginning the second half of a full 47 prefecture tour. To speak honestly, my time with my son was limited. When I found out we were going to have a second child, I knew I could not help raise a child nor do my work to the best of my abilities. So I chose to put the well being of my family first. In my situation, my family is an ocean away, and my wife’s family cannot be here 100% of the time to help us. My wife can only realistically do so much on her own. So I am on partial paternity leave while also focusing on other forms of work that allow me to work from home for the time being. It is hard. With two of us at home, it is still hard. With me doing work from home, it’s still hard. My daughter has needs far different from my son’s. Maintaining balance and face time with both children and the dog is hard. Finding time to work and study is hard. Ideally it takes more than 1 parent to raise children, and at the most ideal, it takes an entire family to raise them. I’m lucky that I can choose to take this time off, but I understand that’s not the case with everyone else. Just because it’s not the case does not mean it shouldn’t be. I believe both parents and children benefit from as much time together as possible during the first 6-12 months after a child is born. Particularly in the case of special needs children, and multiple children, the need for both parents to be around is obvious. Children eventually become adults and to best create good and productive adults, it requires cooperation of family, friends and co-workers. The more we can do for children when they are developing, the better chances are we will have better adults and a better society. At some point, I will speak more in depth about my experiences, but I hope nations

“Immigration is the international movement of people into a destination country of which they are not natives or where they do not possess citizenship in order to settle or reside there, especially as permanent residents or naturalized citizens, or to take up employment as a migrant worker or temporarily as a foreign worker.“ I am no longer a citizen of the US, so I have very little I can say or do about recent events. However, I can relate to the issues, since I am an immigrant. I was born and raised in a wealthy part of California, and never lived in poverty, but I am an immigrant to Japan. Some people ask me if I see myself as Japanese. I was not born and raised in Japan, so I recognize I am not Japanese. I am an immigrant to Japan and a naturalized citizen. With the gift of citizenship, comes the burden and responsibility to respect, honor and protect the country and culture I have come to call my own. I believe many immigrants around the world feel the same for their new countries. I believe we often see immigration as a one-sided issue and tend to divorce it from the human side. I can't speak for all immigrants around the world, but as an immigrant to Japan, I hope that others feel the same way I do. I have a tremendous feeling of love and appreciation for the country that has taken me in, a country that has shown me love and opportunity, a country that is the home of my children. Cruelty is a lousy policy. We have so much to gain from working with each other, and while there are no simple solutions, we must strive to be kind to each other. I hope families are reunited, and better days are ahead. #immigrant #japan #lovejapan #keepfamiliestogether

#PrayersforOsaka #Change #BeTheChange #BeBetter First off, my thoughts and prayers are with Osaka in these difficult times. I have spent a lot of time lately considering generational change. It seems like every generation of young teens and adults have complaints about their parents and grandparents way of life. It seems common to get caught up in the drama of life and become more concerned with your direct bubble, rather than the world as a whole. Some might say past generations spent too much money, or didn’t protect the environment, etc. I began to wonder what would my kids say about my generation. For many of us in our 30s and 40s, we grew up during the transition of a somewhat analog life, to a new digital life. I don’t know if we’ve dealt with that well and feel lost in between the two. If anything, I worry that my kids will say my generation was too apathetic. That we spent our time talking about change, and responsibility, but rarely actually worked to take responsibility and bring about change. I think more of us need to be more active. We need to become leaders in politics and private industry, to correct what we feel is wrong with the world. I don’t quite know where I fit into that yet, but I want to be more active so that my kids can grow up proud of the fight their father put up to make the world better.

Chris Hart’s Quick & easy food prep for babies and toddlers using a food steamer! Buy lots of vegetables. Blanch them and throw them in the freezer. They can be stored for months, and when it’s time to prepare a meal for the kids, throw the veggies in the steamer! Great for the dads who can’t cook. 😉 Side note: a steamer works well for hard boiled eggs, cooking sausages and fish as well. You can make rice and so many other healthy foods for kids. For babies, use a mixer to make a purée with the steamed vegetables, or cut the veggies up small for toddlers. Steaming preserves the flavor and your kids can learn to love veggies! #Dadtip #離乳食 #野菜を冷凍してみよう #フードスチーマー #便利 #パパ達頑張ろう #goodmorning 🥗🥐🍳🥦🥒🥕🌽

#15年間 音楽を頑張ろうと思い始まったのは15年前だったよね。 アメリカでバンド活動して、セルフプロデュース、作曲作詞、日本語だけで歌ったり、日本人アーティストのオープニングアクトとして出たりして楽しい7年間でした。 そこから日本に移住して、ユニット活動、営業、CM活動。メジャーになって、ソロシンガーの活動。。。また楽しい8年間。 あっという間の15年間。これから続く道、まだ音楽の道だけど、また生まれ変わって新しいスタートになった。これからの15年はどうなるんだろう。 楽しみ

Evolution is a good thing. It is difficult, but ultimately for the better. We learn about our weak points and things that threaten our survival, we change and learn new habits and skills to better adapt to the times. Now is another chance for evolution. In the wake of countless reports of sexual harassment involving people of influence and power, it is important that we accept the reality. Times have changed. “I didn’t mean it.” “Those were the times.” Those types of defenses are insufficient. We should see what it is. Almost all of us have contributed to a destructive, counterproductive and traumatic culture of abuse. How do I know most of us contributed? Because “those were the times” and most of us choose to conform to the norms of the times rather than stray from them. The intent is irrelevant. Being oblivious is irrelevant. We should accept that whether we knew or not, or whether we meant it or not, that countless people are hurt and traumatized by sexual harassment and abuse every single day. “I’m sorry.” “How do we change?” “Are you ok?” “What can I do to help?” In my mind, those are the most relevant places for us to start so that we can embrace evolution and move forward as a better society. Stand for change, not against it. #MeToo #WeToo #HowCanIHelp

Sometimes it can be difficult to make sense of your world while you’re living in it. A little distance and time can lead to a new perspective. #LiveYourLife
