We interrupt your horsey horsings for a potential historic event in the making. · 7:55pm Aug 8th, 2016

There's a very important thing happening in the world right now that you might not have heard about. You might not even be aware of why it's important if you have heard.

Chances are you probably won't care, either, but it's one of those things it's good to be aware of.

No, it has nothing to do with US politics.

Or terrorism.

He's off you know, to a distant land · 11:54am May 25th, 2016

After an insanely early race to the airport and a full day of madness at work, I stayed up most of Monday night anxiously monitoring BlueBook's flight until it landed in Narita.


Paint dries faster than watching a 12 ½ hour flight

Is There Anyone Here Who Knows A Lot About Japan and/or Speaks Japanese? · 2:57am Apr 7th, 2016

I'm what the Japanese would call a "shinnichi": Someone who takes a deep interest in any aspect of Japan—geography, music, food, etc (If I am correct, it literally means "pro-Japanese").

In my case, mine would be the culture and language. Three days ago I decided to take a drive down the long road of learning to speak, read and write Japanese. Unsurprisingly, I'm still working on writing in Hiragana, the traditional Japanese writing form.

Japan Update · 7:49am Jun 30th, 2015

Hey anyone reading this! Just a little hello from Tokyo. Been successful so far! Even found a black vinyl DJ Pon3 at a Mandarake secondhand store for roughly $15 with a range of Star Wars stuff which would have been amazing if it wasn't expensive. Also found an MLP doujin which was not, despite being in Japan, porn. Weird, eh? It's about Dash buying a clockwork pony and finding her a new eye, I think. I can't read Japanese, after all, but I couldn't detect any tentacles or what you'd expect.

Announcement Relating to MLP · 5:27am Dec 10th, 2016

Hey, everyone!

So, here's my announcement: I plan to move to Japan next October. I'll be going to a Japanese language academy so that I can become fluent enough to study manga at a Japanese university.

So Awesome · 9:53am Feb 24th, 2016

A vivid dream has possessed me recently.

The town I work in sits on Japan's biggest lake. I've never been in Japan during cherry blossom season. I really like to run.

When the cherry blossoms fall and the sky is clear, I'm going to go to the coast and run. I'm going to run till my legs give out…

and then I'll figure out how to throw ponies into the mix and write a one-shot about it.

Sorry for the delay · 5:21am Nov 19th, 2015

My sincere apologies for being away for so long. The last few months have been quite crazy between graduating, getting my first real job, and moving to a different country (Japan FTW!) to do said job.

Things have settled down a bit now, so I'll hopefully be putting out stuff again at more regular intervals. Just posted up a new chapter of My Little Pirates and the next chapter of Heavy Crown is currently being editted.

I Like Japan All Healthy-Like But Then Filthy Frank Makes Me Feel Like A Dirty Weeaboo. · 7:52pm Jun 2nd, 2016

I don't even watch anime and this guy still makes me feel like a swine.

On the for real, though, I can't believe I've never watched FF before. He's like comedy nirvana.

The place, not the band.

I'm in heaven. · 12:51pm Jul 23rd, 2016

To recap, I tried one of only twenty pancakes made at a popular restaurant, valiantly fought alongside a bunch of Japanese to capture a Rhydon in Pokemon Go, helped some French tourists order amazing yakitori, and (most importantly of all) saw One Piece: Film Gold and it kicked so much ass! Dear lord, it's been an amazing day and it's only my first full day in Osaka!

Oh and get ready, because I may have just finished up editing a certain chapter of a story.

One of these things is (not?) like the others... · 11:28am Jul 6th, 2016

Three of these girls are supposed to be adults. The fourth just graduated high school.

I think something kinda went caca here...

(You'll find out what new show this is from and my thoughts on it later today, in Summer Anime Premiere Special #3.)

Retelling A Spooky Ghost Story. · 3:08am Jun 14th, 2016

So, as part of my obsession fascination with Japan, I went ahead and decided to look up Japanese horror stories to see what passes in Japan as "scary." I stumbled upon this one short story, titled "Copy Machine," which I thought was pretty creepy. Unfortunately, I lost the original link to the story, so I'm going to do a quick retelling here to try and spook some viewers. All credit goes to the original author.

Shoutout For A Rather Enjoyable Story. · 6:07am Jun 11th, 2016

So, as some of you know, I'm very fascinated with a unique little thing we call "Japan." I take a large amount of interest in this country, from its music, to its language, to its culture. I'm what many Japanese people refer to as 「しんにち」(pronounced shin-nichi, literally means "Pro-Japanese"). I am interested in Japan enough that I am making an effort to learn to speak Japanese.

Away to Japan! · 1:56pm Jun 25th, 2015

As the title says, I'm off to Japan for a week as part of a university thing. Journalism unit, about media pop culture soft power and media, media tourism and all that sort of thing. Which means I get to spend a week with 10 other people going to all the cool places in Tokyo! Flying out tomorrow at midday, then sitting in Sydney for seven hours waiting for an overnight, ten hour flight to Tokyo. Bleh, maybe I'll spend some of that empty time writing...speaking of which...

Crazy Day in Japan · 8:56am Jun 18th, 2018

So I woke up in Kyoto at 8am this morning to a literal earthquake of 5.3 magnitude that had it’s epicenter literally miles from my Airbnb.

We were stranded in Kyoto for most of the day because the public transport system was screwed, but made it safely to Osaka. I have Flitter with me and am taking pictures.

I have lots I want to write, and stuff will start to come out after I get back to the states next week.

Almost at level 99 in Shadow Hearts. · 6:06pm Apr 29th, 2018

17 years ago, a legendary JRPG flew under the radar. I first played my brother's copy in 2004, and eventually got my own just a couple years ago. Today is the first time I will reach level 99.
