Do you still keep in touch with Julian Barrett? Any plans to do anything Boosh-related in the future?

Context: I studied Japanese for a year in the UK as part of a degree in Politics and International Relations (big focus on East Asian politics and diplomacy, so did Japanese and Mandarin), lived in Japan for a year after that, so pretty well spoken in the language, and continued studying when I came back to the UK.
Being a bit of a filthy capitalist, I am more interested in the money than the experience, and I know that teaching isn't hugely well paid (unless you are a full-on Masters qualified English teacher).
I also know that you CAN get a job fairly easily as a foreigner with a standard Japanese company, but they will work you to the bone (like every other employee they have...).
However I had a friend who worked for a British company over there, and another who worked for an American company. Fairly basic stuff, headhunting and the like, but they apparently got paid a damn good wage and were on 'Western' working hours, i.e. you get to go home at some point.
Do you know any foreigners over there who have done the same?

Having played a lot of 40K universe games (favourite being Inquisitor in 40K scale, diminishing model range no longer being an issue :D) I wondered if there is ever going to be a first/third person RPG set in the 40K universe?
After playing a lot of games like the newer Fallout series, I always imagined a role playing game with the player character as either an Inquisitor (with a choice of Ordo and a large companion system for retinues) or a rogue trader (travelling between planets getting into all sorts of shenanigans) to be unfairly awesome!
Any chance of anyone ever making this happen?

Favourite Japanese TV show? I do find a lot of them suck quite a bit (and god those advertising laws are just intrusive), but when I first got to Japan I was all about 志村動物園!Simple Japanese for kids!
