Long ago in New York, Mike was a sort of musician-poet of absolutely no acclaim, but he had a very good time. After getting married, he lived in Japan, for a while; then went to Ireland to do a PhD because he wanted to make comprehensible the things that were going on in his head. Now back in Japan, and having generated a happy family (shameless Ramones reference), he wants to enjoy thinking again. He is very interested in non-mainstream cultural activities and prefers being on ice because it is pure and easier than walking.
