Rest In Peace, Jun Seba / Nujabes

    This really depresses me… I have listened to his music for years now and it hurts for someone so talented to leave at such an early age. I really feel for everyone that has had the wonderful oppertunity to be graced with his great music. may he rest in peace…

    Wow…so sad. Unbelievable. His music took me through some the hardest times of my life. Always dreamed of seeing him live in Concert. But I will continue always to introduce his work to my closest of friends. One of the best artists of all time in my mind.

This is nuts! I wonder how many times they had to shoot this (and how much plane fuel was used). Watch “Upside Down & Inside Out” on Booooooom TV.
