As I look through some images from several years ago I realize that the one-week weather forecast from December 12, 2007, 06:58 JST did not mention the earthquakes that would intermittently punctuate yesterday, December 17, 2009. However, looking back it seems clear that the distorted reception of the program was predicting it all the same. As well, the last fuzzy frame of the broadcast bears the slightest resemblance to Africa, foreshadowing the connection between Egypt and Japan on the back of black sesame cracker snack packaging. I am curious what would be revealed if I saw the reflection of my erased cassette tape in a news brief on the television after the weather report. Would mysteries be revealed that could not be coaxed out of the cassette by the diminutive Shinjuku psychic?
