Is This How The World Views Us? Part 1: Loco in Cap-Haitien

Is This How The World Views Us? Part 1: Loco in Cap-Haitien

“Short musical movies, starring guns and drugs, blood and guts, sirens and cuffs, tits and ass, dancing and fucking, bling-bling and bang-bang… Like video poems, some so juvenile a child could grasp it, some so complex they’ve yet to be grasped.”

I’m the Only Gaijin in This Mansion!

You can count on a number of things happening during holiday season in Japan, and after all these years here, none of it even budges the needle on my WTFometer anymore. Once Mariah stops screeching about what she wants for Xmas, once those Xmas illumination extravaganzas no longer draw prohibitive numbers, and once all the kampai and bonenkai […]

When Hateful People Hate You!

When Hateful People Hate You!

Just saw a link on my blog stats page. It sent some traffic my way so I followed it and it lead to a white supremacist website. Before I could close the page (my normal response to sick minds) curiosity got the best of me. Somehow I imagined, in almost a decade of having a […]

Playing the Game of Resolutions

Playing the Game of Resolutions

I quit making New Year’s resolutions. I make mine on any day of the year except December 31st because then, technically, it’s not a New Year’s resolution. It’s just a resolution. Right? I prefer to just do shit without making breakable promises to myself. Because every time I broke a New Year’s resolution (and I’ve broken MANY) […]

Americans Might be Baka, But We’re not THAT Baka!

The latest #BlackEye is up! Shared some thoughts on the recent election… Here’s an excerpt: “Are you sure she’s going to win?” my Japanese co-worker seated beside me asked. I leaned over and glanced at her computer screen. I saw what had upset her. Texas’ results had just come in, and Trump had sprinted further ahead […]
