After several months of having to put up with the frustration of repeatedly being refused by uptight and obtuse landlords, I finally managed to find a good place for the studio so I can announce now, with certainty, that the move is going to happen after all.
I’ve already rented the new space and, starting tomorrow, we’ll proceed to redecorate the interior. The whole thing is supposed to last only one week so, before the end of this month, I’ll be able to go in and take a few photos and post them here.
Meanwhile, the important details:
150-0013 Shibuya-ku, Ebisu 4-10-8, Ebisu Building 3rd floor, room 302
The new place is really close to the east exit (towards Garden Place) of Ebisu Station (one stop from Shibuya and Nakameguro on Eidan Hibiya Line; one stop from Shibuya and Meguro on JR Yamanote Line). From the east exit, it’s a 7 minute walk along Route 305.
For a landmark, easiest to find —and most popular— is the Zest Cantina, which is right on the other side of Route 305.
The new studio will be open on Saturday, June 21st, 2008.
Until Sunday, June 15th, I’ll be at the current place.
What Will Change?
Except for the location address and the phone/FAX number, nothing will change.
I don’t know the new phone number yet, but I will arrange to have the calls transferred from the old number so, for a few months, the old number will still be OK. In any case, as soon as I have the new number, I’ll update the contact information page and I will post it here too.
What Won’t Change
The website and e-mail addresses will be the same.
For the current year, the working hours and the days off won’t change either. I’m going to separate the workplace from my home, which means I probably won’t reply to e-mails in the middle of the night anymore, but don’t count on this ;)
My attitude toward the filthy governments, the big ass greedy corporations, monarchy, religion and generally, the meat puppets, will not change, I’m pretty sure of that :) I’ll probably grow a beard and click on a shitload of buttons [cheers, Rick!], but this too doesn’t have anything to do with this topic, does it? :D
I guess that’s about it for now. I’ll post updates when I have more details and I’ll definitely post some photos once the studio is redecorated. Soon, I will send out a bunch of e-mails to everybody, with the area map attached and all of the above info; if you’ve changed your e-mail address since the last time we corresponded, please let me know before the end of this month.
Thanks a lot for reading this!
