    Nice post Danny. It is very much like the one you have written in the past. In other words, if you need to force writing, then it will be crap. Looking forward to your writing on depressing. I wish I could say I didn't fall down that dark hole. Those of us who like you as a person and are interested in what you are doing will continue to be here for the journey. I find that the people who demand a lot of content are the ones creating nothing. They give no thought to the sacrifices given by the creator. It has been and will always be about quality over quantity.

    I would like to go on one of these photo walks. Photography has become like golf, great way to meet people and make contacts.

    Hope you and team have a great time! Photos from the Sony look great.

    Lately I have been coming across people who actually want to fight about how expensive it is in Japan. I know, I meet some strange people. Hey, what do I know about living in Japan. :p When visiting Japan find a local supermarket to buy some of your meals. No need to pay high prices in a conbini for the same food. If you rent a place with a kitchen all the better.

    If you wait until you have a lot of cashflow on hand, waiting is all you will be doing. ^^ Danny what about several banner stands that you could put behind a table or in the center of the display you had at Wonder Festival? If they cost to much to buy, maybe you could make then from PVC pipe.

    If winters continue like the one we are having now, you might need an all season tire. No offense, but four wheel drive will do no good without the right tires. Gotta think about your back too. ^^ Take care Danny.

    Chains like these are a real pain to put on. --#

    Now I feel really guilty for crying in my beer about my current situation. My wallet laughs at me lately when I look at it. >< I will try to do my best to help get you back home. I know the short term sacrifice will pay off big for you. Where did you find the keyboard overlay? Amazon I guess? I have been looking for one myself.

    Happy Chinese New Year to you too Danny and everyone here reading! May this New Year bring good health and success to everyone. It's the year of the Horse! Yatta!

    A very Happy New Year to you and your family Danny! Keep going and never stop! Thank you for all the inspiration. I'm pushing forward on my goals and falling down hard. I refuse to give up because I have too much to lose. Keep pushing forward everyone! Start making those dreams a reality today!

    Nice post Danny. I always enjoy seeing the Christmas lights in Tokyo. Merry Christmas Danny.

    Super cute stuff Danny. Oh yes, watched a lot of Votoms back in the day. ^o^

    Solomon is always living his life according to his own standards and not someone else's. I wish him great success on his new project!

    Arabian and Columbian coffee are my favorites. I like french roast or Italian roast after a good meal or with deserts. Next time you are in the state you should pick up a bag of Eight o'clock Coffee.

    Same here, I've been drinking more coffee as of late. I hope Starbucks will bring the rewards program in the states here to Japan. The wife and I recently purchased a Keurig Machine at Costco. It works similar to a french press which give that rich flavor that we love from a cup at Starbucks. We are both pleased with the results so far and like the fact there is no mess to clean up. It is nice for a quick cup in the morning or for a travel mug when heading out. I haven't tried making tea or ice coffee yet. Right now I'm experimenting with the empty k-cup which allows me to use coffee or tea not sold in k-cups. I'm having mix results so I'm not ready to recommend it yet. You and the wife might want to keep your eyes open for a demonstration in a shop or department store. http://www.keurig.com/ English site and http://www.keurig.co.jp/ here in Japan.

    Coolsome, photo comments now show up in feedly preview mode!


  • commented on 2013/05/24 07:22

    My favorite as well. I recently sent mail some to friends in Japan. Looks like you need a care package. ^o^

    My wife has been hinting at a day trip to Kyoto for shopping and such. It will finally be a good chance to visit Tenshi no Sato as well. You know me, I haven't adopted a DD yet but I do do think they are sweet. ^o^ I'm assuming you have photos of the Volks office to share too? ^^;

    You are missing the point of the comments being made. No one is making light of what Samsung is doing. The point is we should be against ALL companies that abuses the rights of their workers. Pointing the finger at ONE company while ignoring the wrong of other companies is not right. I can tell you as an American and a union member that many workers died at the hands of company thugs to create unions in the US. Just as with the Japanese, Americans did not have these right handed to them, they fought for thoese rights. Worker can always change the system.

    Just discovered this three part article by Andy Ihnatko on Techhive about his switch to Android. In this second part he makes two points about customization which lead to ease of use. Well worth the few minutes read. http://www.techhive.com/article/2030116/customize-and-collaborate-why-i-switched-from-iphone-to-android-part-2.html

    I recommend the iPhone to most people who ask me. Anyone who would need an Android device will not ask which device they should buy. :p In other words, people who need, can and are willing to get their hands dirty will go for the Android device. Right now I want to switch to Android simple because I'm not a fanboy of any manufacturer and I see myself as cross platform person. I want to develope for both Android and iOS devices. What is holding me back? Money is a big issue right now. Yes, a big issue. I have a few applications I can't find counterparts for on Android. Solutions I need to find answers for soon. Off topic, I ordered a new non-retina MBP last month. I took a hard look at the retina machines and decided I didn't need one and it wouldn't give me any benefits over the high-res display. With the new MBP specs out, I have an entry level retina machine. Now I can afford to buy some new apps and gear as well. You know as well as I do Danny that it's all about what you need to get done. At the same time it's about building and living your life and not someone else's life. You don't buy things because they are new or in vogue. You buy them because they are what you need to build your future, your way. ^_^ Hey it worked for Steve Jobs...
