Moving to blogger

•March 22, 2010 • Leave a Comment

You know what? Fuck word press. It is a greedy piece of shit. I could barely edit anything, it is too confusing, and they just ask for money to really make MY BLOG like I WANT.

Don’t use wordpress.

Helgen’s Nippon Insight

Here is one of my rant videos about visiting, or living in Japan from my point of view. Not all of it is accurate, and I was a little nervous, so if you have any questions or negativity, you should know how to reply.

Yes, I remember I have a blog!

•March 22, 2010 • Leave a Comment

It took me long enough to make a new blog post. It is because I have stuff to do, and I am usually bullshitting on Facebook (yes, I actually got sucked in by it.)

Well basically, I still been studying Japanese any way my stupid head can, and I been trying to meet more people and do more things, but there isn’t much to do here, so I have to travel a bit.

So far, I have went to Fukuoka, and went to a famous 3rd Strike arcade called “Monkey House.” I played Deshiken over there and a few other players. Everyone was pretty cool.

I also recorded some video blogs, and I will make a separate section for those, or I could simply link to my youtube page. Whatever I feel ;).

I visited a cool street wear store a driving distance away from my house called Bee Hive. I wanted to work there, but I must speak Japanese obviously. And knowing me, I could talk about fashion for a long time, so I would indeed need to speak the language and read more of it.

Well, I might separate my posts from here on end so that I have more things to talk about, because right now everything is mad clumped up. Until then, will post things more in order.

Peace!

Quiet New Years Morning, Nippon.

I didn’t even write words before, I just put all the pictures I took at the time up. But yeah, I was going to make this site like a personal site for myself, but why would I do that? I’m not a celebrity, I’m just as common as the next dude, don’t need to be having mad pages lol. Going for the minimal approach.

Here’s the previous pictures:

New Years resolution… Quit smoking!

•January 7, 2010 • Leave a Comment

So I promised my wife I would quit smoking, and I’ve almost made a week. Going cold turkey. It’s hard to do that when you’re in a country where cigarettes are as comparable as water (in price.)

I had a great new years day, and met with new relatives.

What I like to call “potty ethics.”

It’s amazing how many people back home in New York get sick, and how often. I think it’s due to the fact that the tidy factor there is so far behind of any other country.

It’s as if nobody cares about themselves or anyone else. Are American’s really that spoiled, selfish and lazy? Well I’m not sure, but this is not the case right now.

I’ve noticed that almost every store in Japan has either a sink, or some form of hand sanitizer around. Isn’t that great? I mean, you don’t want to eat a meal with dirty hands, or touch around places where other people may have sneezed in their hand and touched.

Another thing I like is that there’s a bathroom almost anywhere you go, and you don’t need to ask to use it, like you’re some fucking junkie in need of a quick hit or some shit. Although, I know it’s fucked up where I’m from, hopefully one day that’ll all change. But I have always wondered where the hell do they expect you to urinate/defecate if you can’t use any bathrooms in the city? Seriously, you hae to risk your fucking bladder exploding or something.
