"it seems to me now that the plain state of being human is dramatic enough for anyone; you don't need to be a heroin addict or a performance poet to experience extremity. you just have to love someone."
"fairness us a concept that holds only in limited situations. yet we want the concept to extend to everything, in and out of phase. from snails to hardware stores to married life. maybe no one finds it, or even misses it, but fairness is like love. what is given has nothing to do with what we seek." -haruki murakami

itchin' (for tekken). that's what i felt after i saw the trailer for tekken tag tournament 2. so the dust flew off my neglected ps2 (my psp has been indisposed for quite sometime now) and controller for some much needed tekken rounds.
the trailer was a christmas gift from tekken's creator harada. but... TTT 2 won't come til mid 2011. can't wait!
and oh, guess who this guy is. >:) he'll be coming back to TTT 2 with all of the rest of the T6:BR characters along with new (jaycee) and not so new (jinpachi) characters.
