Hot October





Hi Diane,

How are you doing?

Did you enjoy VIFF movies?

I left for Tokyo on October 4.

So I missed some interesting movies in Vancouver.




However, I enjoyed the inflight movies while I was up in the air.

I watched the following movies:



As you know, there is a global warming, and it was terribly hot in the last summer in Japan.




When I left for Tokyo on October 4, it was 7 ℃ at Vancouver Airport.

But it was 32 ℃ on Octover 7 in my hometown in Japan.

It was exceptionally hot!




Unfortunately, my mother is in the other world,

but I met her at the cemetry in my home town.

Talking about Halloween 2018 in Japan, it was wild, weird and dangerous.



Diane, did you enjoy Haloween in Vancouver?

I’ll be in Vancouver in a week.

I hope I’ll meet you some day,

and wish the democrats will occupy as many seats as possible in the congress after the midterm election.




In any case, I hope your heart remains sunny the rest of the day.

Have a nice evening!

bye now.

Your smiling Bohemian, Kato
with a lot of love as always

Do you think that there are so many unsatisfied and anti-Establishment workers in the States?

Well… even so, I hope Trump would never become another Hitler.

By the way, if Hitler had won the war, what kind of world do you think we could see?

Here’s one such possibility.




In any road, I expect Kato will write another interesting article soon.

So please come back to see me.

Have a nice day!

Bye bye …

Hi, I’m June Adams.

Kato is a real movie lover, who tries to watch 1001 movies.

As a matter of fact, he has already accomplished his goal.


『Actual List』


Kato watched “The Arabian Nights” or “One Thousand and One Nights” as his 1001th movie.

You might just as well want to view it.



The stories in “the Arabian Nights” were collected over many centuries by various authors, translators, and scholars across West, Central, and South Asia and North Africa.

The tales themselves trace their roots back to ancient and medieval Arabic, Persian, Indian, Egyptian and Mesopotamian folklore and literature.

In particular, many tales were originally folk stories from the Caliphate era, while others, especially the frame story, are most probably drawn from the Pahlavi Persian work Hazār Afsān which in turn relied partly on Indian elements.

What is common throughout all the editions of the Nights is the initial frame story of the ruler Shahryār and his wife Scheherazade and the framing device incorporated throughout the tales themselves.

The stories proceed from this original tale.

Some are framed within other tales, while others begin and end of their own accord.

Some editions contain only a few hundred nights, while others include 1,001 or more.
