As if He Couldn't Get Any Cooler

Wow, I had no idea that Osamu Tezuka played the accordion, but there it is! Apparently, he liked to surprise people by showing off his musical skills. I guess you could say he's still surprising people, despite the obvious handicap of being deceased!

This picture comes from Harvey Deneroff's Blog, who says that "Astro Boy and Anime Come to the Americas", the book he wrote with Fred Ladd, is now available for sale from publisher MacFarland, as well as other online retail outlets like Amazon. It is set for official publication in March of 2009, so this is a chance to get a hold of this anticipated book a little early. Several more images will be in the book, so it'll be quite interesting to see what other surprises it may hold for us.

And if anyone disagrees with me over whether playing the accordion is cool or not, need I remind you about that other accordion playing God.
