I’m a writer, a teacher and a helluva basketball player (at least I used to be), live from New York (Brooklyn) and doing a bid in Japan- seven years running.
This is not your typical blog about the foreigner’s experience here. I go places where most blogs dare not go or can’t go cuz they simply don’t know the way.
I’m not big on geisha, flower arrangements, tea ceremonies, and penis festivals. I don’t spew over French maid cafes, kimono-clad women nor sailor outfit wearing teens. Anime ain’t my forte. I use Nihongo (Japanese language) but it doesn’t get me off. Nor do I get off on calling Japanese people xenophobic and perpetual whale-hunting dolphin-slaughtering isolationists. This is not a forum for whining and spitting at Japanese. That ain’t my thing, either.
I don’t think Japanese culture (as it stands) is weird and wonderful. I don’t even think it’s that unique.
It is what it is, and I tell it like it is. The good and the bad (At least I try to.)
Loco in Yokohama started back in late 2008, borne out of my desire to share the things I was seeing and experiencing, and the life I was leading. It was simply a reason to write. It’s come a long way (as have I) and the best is yet to come.
***At the risk of overstating the obvious, my goal is to be published and to make a living as a writer! If you are a publisher and dig what you’re reading, (or if you even know a publisher) I can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org ***
Here, at Loco in Yokohama, you can expect to learn about life in Japan (specifically Yokohama) with the emphasis being on content. Your time is valuable and so is mine. I won’t waste, either. Some of my post are long but I endeavor to make them worth the investment. If you agree please let me know.
All comments are welcomed and encouraged.
Go ahead, send some love or tear me a new one. It’s all good. Comments keep me motivated and the juices flowing…
WARNING: Some of the material is explicit (yes I use expletives- sometimes gratuitously-you know, for effect…but this ain’t Penthouse Forum…(I don’t do porn, sorry, wrong site) so you should watch your ears cuz sometimes I don’t watch my mouth.
はじめましてよろしくおね願いいたします (Hajimemashite yoroshiku onegai itashimasu)
