  1. Lyrics to Bob Dylan apocalyptic song of nuclear fallout – 1962


    Oh, where have you been, my blue-eyed son ?
    And where have you been my darling young one ?
    I’ve stumbled on the side of twelve misty mountains
    I’ve walked and I’ve crawled on six crooked highways
    I’ve stepped in the middle of seven sad forests
    I’ve been out in front of a dozen dead oceans
    I’ve been ten thousand miles in the mouth of a graveyard
    And it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard, and it’s a hard
    It’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall.

    Oh, what did you see, my blue eyed son ?
    And what did you see, my darling young one ?
    I saw a newborn baby with wild wolves all around it
    I saw a highway of diamonds with nobody on it
    I saw a black branch with blood that kept drippin’
    I saw a room full of men with their hammers a-bleedin’
    I saw a white ladder all covered with water
    I saw ten thousand takers whose tongues were all broken
    I saw guns and sharp swords in the hands of young children
    And it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard, and it’s a hard
    It’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall.

    And what did you hear, my blue-eyed son ?
    And what did you hear, my darling young one ?
    I heard the sound of a thunder, it roared out a warnin’
    I heard the roar of a wave that could drown the whole world
    I heard one hundred drummers whose hands were a-blazin’
    I heard ten thousand whisperin’ and nobody listenin’
    I heard one person starve, I heard many people laughin’
    Heard the song of a poet who died in the gutter
    Heard the sound of a clown who cried in the alley
    And it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard
    And it’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall.

    Oh, who did you meet my blue-eyed son ?
    Who did you meet, my darling young one ?
    I met a young child beside a dead pony
    I met a white man who walked a black dog
    I met a young woman whose body was burning
    I met a young girl, she gave me a rainbow
    I met one man who was wounded in love
    I met another man who was wounded and hatred
    And it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard
    And it’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall.

    And what’ll you do now, my blue-eyed son ?
    And what’ll you do now my darling young one ?
    I’m a-goin’ back out ‘fore the rain starts a-fallin’
    I’ll walk to the deepths of the deepest black forest
    Where the people are a many and their hands are all empty
    Where the pellets of poison are flooding their waters
    Where the home in the valley meets the damp dirty prison
    Where the executioner’s face is always well hidden
    Where hunger is ugly, where souls are forgotten
    Where black is the color, where none is the number
    And I’ll tell and think it and speak it and breathe it
    And reflect it from the mountain so all souls can see it
    Then I’ll stand on the ocean until I start sinkin’
    But I’ll know my songs well before I start singin’
    And it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard, and it’s a hard
    It’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall.

  2. Takasaki is an old post town on the centuries old Nakasendo, an inland walking path/road that has connected Tokyo with Kyoto for centuries. So many other towns along the Nakasendo seem to have fallen on hard times. Takasaki was a survivor into the modern era. Unlike many of the other post towns, it had actually thrived, thanks probably to shinkansen service and the modern highway that runs through it.

    Sad to see that history threatened by nuclear contamination. Illustrates, I believe, that JAPAN (the culture and people) were able to survive for millenia without nuclear power. However just fifty years with nuclear power threaten to destroy the true Japan many of us have come to love.

    These people who push and promote nuclear power are no friends of the true JAPAN. People like Iori are its protectors. I’m sending another 5,000 yen to his friend’s Hawaii address today (sorry, I have no US currency). I hope all of you readers will join in supporting Iori financially both this month and in the new year.

About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
