Interested in cities, transit and street culture. In Japan, focusing on rail integrated development, shotengai and other public space. Mandarin Chinese and Japanese student. Anime and ramen junkie.
I miss hearing/seeing what you've been up to, even if it was just a big old wall of photos, but completely understand about sacrifices and prioritization. You only have so many hours to budget each day, and often the challenge becomes not deciding what to do, but what NOT to do. I had sciatic nerve compression over the past year, though fortunately the worst symptom was my foot going numb. I came to many of the same conclusions... the most important thing is getting and staying healthy, then limiting time and energy to just a handful of the things that are most fulfilling and/or have a potential business path. Everything else is noise. Especially on the internet!
Reading about your journey over the years helped pull me out of my own slump in the not too distant past. Cheering you on whatever path you take is the least anyone should do.
Took my family to this standup yakitori when we visited in the summer. Very fun when there is a big crowd.
Also, I've been researching anime pop culture tourism (聖地巡礼、舞台探訪) for about 2 and a half years. Have pretty good relationships with the community core.
More CJ TV!? Great! Don't know what direction you plan to take for season 3, but if you think you'll be showcasing more neighborhoods and street culture, I'd love to pitch some ideas.
Welcome back! Have missed reading your regular updates.
Starting around when you got into the CJ television series, you didn't have much time for things like Tokyo neighborhood walks anymore. I ended up making more frequent trips to Japan to do my own, to combat the withdrawal, so maybe not the worst outcome. (^^)
I try lots of things, usually go for single origin beans, not blends.
Sad to see anyone's hobby or interest portrayed in this light, pop culture or otherwise. It's a convenient narrative for mainstream media to tell to an audience. There are undoubtedly many people watching who may not have any burning interests or passions of their own, and seek validation by denigrating those who stand out. We should all be so lucky to find something we love so much that we don't care what others think about it or us.
Very nice ^_^
Get that girl a Mark III!
This is the Toyoko Line terminus. The line will be moved underground and connect to Fukutoshin Line in March. This platform will be a temp event space for a few months before they start construction on a new building.
Love this shot, with the shadows and lens flare. I can never get these shots through the viewfinder, always happens by accident and I see it later in post!
ooh! top of my head, at least.
My head is hiding, but I see my camera ^_^
Won't be around much longer. Go to see this before they close.
I was all over Eureka Seven when it came out. I have no idea what these AVI files are of which you speak ^^;
who knew that such content creating greatness would evolve out of rough diamonds like this ^_^
now I kind of want to know what you wrote in the post ^_^
I've had the high-res version of this photo as my desktop wallpaper for the past 2 years ^_^
"Tokyo Dance Trooper in Shibuya" was how I discovered Danny Choo ^_^
in photos, sodium vapor lights usually look orange, mercury vapor looks green. if you have only one type, you can adjust a bit with white balancing and green-magenta shift, but more difficult with both types.
I still use an old Yurikamome day pass as a bookmark.
Supposed to be a dancing stormtrooper somewhere around here...
Takadanobaba! Every manga/anime fan on the planet should know why this place is important ^_^
