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

The attacks on anime are ridiculous · 6:32pm Oct 1st, 2023

I am sorry about this blog, but anime as in japanese cartoons made in japan are under attack by western moral puritans, because it doesn't adhere to their moral standards. This strikes me as a very imperialistic mindset, not everyone has to adhere to our values.

My Travels · 3:52am Mar 18th, 2021

I've been thinking on these thoughts for quite a long while now (almost a full decade, by this point:twilightsheepish:) and I've put it off many times, so, I'm putting it out to all of you.

as several of you know, along with being here on Fimfiction, I also have a Youtube channel that also is called Autum Breeze, where most of my content is just small vlogs and several reviews of movies/TV shows.

McDonald's Japan menu item with a provocative name · 5:56am Apr 19th, 2020

They call it the Adult Cream Pie and it was available from January to February 2020 in two flavours: Belgian chocolate and sweet fromage. While the product is aimed towards an adult audience, the name came off as "rude" and "salacious".

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.

Excellent English · 7:21am January 19th

Did you eat crabs?

I did too.

So, living in Japan, English is seen as 'very cool' because everyone studies it, most people can't fathom how people learn this shit, and being fluent in it is very highly regarded by just about everyone. This has led to a lot of clothing being produced that has written english on it, which of course, is cool. Now, if you'd kindly view the following Dogen video, you can see how this goes pretty quickly.

Re: Happy Thanksgiving Y'all! Circa 2017 - Stream of Conciousness · 4:31pm Sep 1st, 2021

Ah... hahaha. Oh the naivety. Little did you know, Rego, that after 3 months of writer's block, your life would be thrown into chaos by forces plaguing your roommate that would cause you to have to switch jobs to a career you hate which would kill your desire to write AND, when you started thinking about getting back into it, you see a problematic headlines and the state of the world causing you to spiral into a creative slump that made you abandon horsewords altogether.

Review: The Boy and the Heron, by Miyazaki · 4:05am July 1st

I don't really want to write this review. I'm a Miyazaki fanboy. I've seen every movie he directed except for his 2 "Conan the Future Boy" movies. Now, lots of people like Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle, or Princess Mononoke. Literary types rave about The Wind Rises. But a real Miyazaki fan likes even those movies where Miyazaki as writer just kind of forgets that he's writing a movie, and gets sucked into the everyday lives of characters. Like how

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.

The little things · 6:31am Dec 8th, 2023

It is a very special feeling when small children want your attention. Not in the, 'do you have games on your phone' or 'can you buy this for me' ways, but the 'will you play with me?' kind. Nothing makes your heart melt faster.
