My First MacBook

So I gave in and finally purchased my first MacBook. So far I have no regrets, actually I love it, everything about it. Its design, weight, ergonomic feel, and ease of use. But what I find myself missing most, the only thing really, is Microsoft’s Windows Live Writer! Arguably the greatest blog writer ever made. Unfortunately, for Steve Jobs this amazing software is not available for the MB, and it’s a real pity too because I have so many journal entries backed up on my WLW; I haven’t even posted my summer vacation posts.

I don’t see a work around for this coming down the pike anytime soon so I went ahead and downloaded MacJournal, the next best thing for WLW. So far it’s smooth and operational. I like the typing experience and relative ease of use. I haven’t fully tested it out yet, that’s why I’m writing this post.

I picked up a MacBook Pro at Bic Camera yesterday for 74000 yen after signing a three month OCN contract for home internet service. Retail for this MB is about 114,000 out the door, so I got a $400.00 discount on a 3 month deal. Not too bad. Couple with a wimax wifi internet wireless router set up that fits right in my pocket. I’m running 40mps, which is the fastest in Japan.

Shin-Okubo: Little Korea

So I finally got around to going up there to Shin-Okubo,  the land of Seoul via the Yamanote Line.  Been putting this trip off for years for personal reasons;  I am not a fan of Hanlleyu.      I knew why I came up this way, and for none other reason than the food, and maybe to bask in the nausea of Korean romanticist who steal Japanese Jukujo's souls.    But honestly, I like spicy food and stews and pickled vegetables that challenge my taste buds.    I also love the little funky cafes that line the main thoroughfares and alley ways, each with their own little eclectic menus and interior decor.     This place is Korea.  





Shin-Okuba represents more than just a place to relish in Korean culinary delights and K-pop culture, but a place where Koreans can express themselves through their culture.    You can feel the local vibe in the air as you're walking down narrow walkways and footpaths.    I have personally been to mainland Korea six times, so a lot of the nostalgia was there …

Japanese Girls: A Sex(quisition)

While writing this, I was listening to "Going Through Changes" by Eminem

No, I haven't lost any love for momma, Japanese Jukujo that is, and yes, I do have a special place in my heart for young Japanese women, too. 

But then....then I glance over and there's a momma, a delectable Japanese Jukujo momma.  Fully rounded, and fully figured and fair healthy skinned.  Full fine silky muff fujii mounds. 

From this point I feel I need to qualify my remarks more thoroughly, though, especially when referencing women in general.   Firstly, it cannot be denied that there are beautiful women all over the world and from a variety of different backgrounds.  Women are people. However, in this essay I would like to take it a little further.

For me, living in Japan I have created a world unto myself so to speak.  I believe that some people create reasons for doing things, more so than there actually being a real need for doing said things, while others drift along accepting any an…
