The Doggy Daddy is guarding the homefront, along with the Two Bows, while I’m on my way to the opposite side of the country for an academic conference on Asian popular music.

To commemorate this most auspicious occasion, here’s a clip you can add to your YouTube jukebox queue. The song is “Doggy Dog,” by Japanese composer Yoko Kanno (菅野 よう子) and performed by the Seatbelts. It appears on the Vitaminless EP (Victor Entertainment, 1998) soundtrack to the anime Cowboy Bebop.
