I received the following email from my domain name registrar this morning:

Dear Valued Customer,

Actually, this is incorrect. I killed the slithy@pobox.com address a few months ago because it was my main source of spam. Otherwise, yes, it's accurate and up-to-date.


KAKU
kawa
meaning: leather, reform

少女 革命 ウテナ ==  shoujo kakumei utena == Revolutionary Girl Utena
革新系 == kawashinkei == liberal


Originally a pictograph of flaps of skin coming off a horned creature. It came to mean 'tanned leather', and the concept of 'tanning/processing' became associated with 'reform'. Henshall suggests taking the top portion as a 'horned head', and the bottom as a combination of 'middle' (中) and 'ten' (十), and as a mnemonic: 'Get leather from middle of ten horned creatures.'
