this is the welcome sign for us students to the photography and film school here in osaka. I believe it is a college but it behaves more like a high school with classrooms and lockers and a prinicple. the principle really likes how fat my belly is.
here is a little good luck shrine where you ring a huge bell, bow twice, clap twice, pray, then bow again and make a prayer. The principle of the photograph school said I midth nee to pray for a girlfriend. I sort of agree.
here we are at a sushi bar on a conveyor belt. I had a lot of high price fish.

Today I arrived in Japan. Its my first time out of the country and I'm sort of like, ok this is neat. Everyone has been pretty nice so far. We went down town and saw some of the city. There were some pretty hip lookin dudes with GoKu hair. I didn't know it could do that in real life.
I also figured out how to bypass jet lag, that's by sleeping/being awake during the time your destination is while you're on the plane and using one of those neck pillows that look like seat cushions for public restrooms. Subsequently you can use those pillows in the airplane lavatory to ease your situation during "mobile relief". Being in this foreign land makes me want to pick up some of that foreign language (if you know what I mean)(chances are you do because I'm speaking english and most of my readers understand english)(perhaps a hidden metaphor would have sprung if I used another language like spanish, ¿me entiendes?¿eh? ¿eh?) So yeah, I'm bringing out some of my old missionary language learning techniques so I can impress my friends with about 20 or less japanese words.

I'm getting ready to leave for japan this fine morning and as i sat down to eat my rich & creamy edy's Grand ice cream for breakfast, I read a really good webcomic. it has been really hard so far in the web comic sphere to find things that are truly beautiful. And Manmachine is really beautiful. You may want to check it out.
