Conversations 2013 #11: As Real As It Gets

Conversations 2013 #11: As Real As It Gets

About an hour ago, the principal spied my new book cover on my iPad on my desk, and the following convo took place: Principal: What’s that? Me: My new book’s cover. P: Eeee? Your book? You wrote a book? Me: Yes. It’s my second actually. P: I didn’t know you were a writer. That’s great. […]

When They Reminisce Over You…

When They Reminisce Over You…

I thought this was long gone… When I changed banners and my web address back in 201o, I had all the old links forwarded to the new self-hosted blog. After that, I realized that I could no longer see the old manifestation of LIY.

Google Loco? WTF?

Google Loco? WTF?

        I woke up this morning and there was traffic coming to Loco in Yokohama from this site called Google Loco. I still don’t know if it’s a joke or not. They have a “we are not affiliated with Google” disclaimer at the bottom of the page so they appear to be […]

On a personal note…

On a personal note…

Dear Loco Readers: I feel like I’ve arrived at a junction. A crossroads. At least as far as Loco in Yokohama is concerned. Writing is a pursuit which fills me with adrenalin. Sitting at a keyboard, looking at my words, my thoughts, my feelings filling in the empty field of white does it for me. This […]

Go Loco, Go Loco, it’s your birthday, it’s your birthday!

Loco in Yokohama is turning two on Friday! Listen to this- one of Loco’s faves- while you read: Two years! Wow, right? It just hit me the other day… I was reading a story about Barack Obama’s meteoric rise to power (and his plummet from favor.)  It reminded me of my first blog, Ain’t no stopping us […]

500 Tweeps and counting…Thanks!

All

Yep, I’m at 500 followers on Twitter, and I haven’t bought a single follower…yet. (-: I don’t even auto-follow anyone who follows me. I don’t know what that says about me or about Loco in Yokohama, if anything, but I wanted to pause and thank all my followers for…well…following Loco. And to re-itterate that I’m […]

Rainy Days

It’s raining in Yokohama today (see pic). And, this morning’s commute reminded me of a post I wrote 2 years ago. Here it is (with a few minor edits): Many Japanese, when walking towards me, have a tendency to (upon noticing me and while at the same time noticing that there is little room or little time to make […]
