My band – We wanted to make sure no one outside of Japan could remember or pronounce our name, so we call ourselves “umegaoka”.
Analogue Haven – For musicians – very cool store selling very cool analog gear.
Rush – Been a huge fan of this band since I was 12.
Garaj Mahal – Ridiculously talented and groovy experimental “jam” band.

Archive.org – One of the best places on the web.
Jeff Bridges.com – Great actor, brilliant website.
Bits and Pieces – For a quick laugh that’s SFW, updated often.
