    i:m pretty sure that this thread will piss most of you off with the lack of flics, but i figured i:d start it anyways as flics should be on the way.

    well, i made it to japan...i just up and left everything in the city and fucking left. i quit my job on monday morning, went home, packed up my apartment, and was on a plane at 6:00 am the next morning. everything seemed to be going smoothly until the captain of my plane to tokyo came over the pa saying that someone had left a menacing note in one of the lavatories and we would have to be diverted to seattle. so, somewhere over bumblefuck canada we turn towards seattle to be greeted by the bomb squad, told to evacuate the plane, get searched again...5 hours later we:re on our way. this little delay caused me to miss all of my connections to akita, so i slept outside the train station in tokyo with the business types to catch the first train in the morning.

    after a 4 hour train ride cramped behind a seat because i could only get standing room only, my girl meets me and life is peachy.

    i:ve only been here a couple of day, but already have experienced several traditional japanese festivals for their celebration of obon (similar to mexico:s dia de los muertos).

    alright, i:m getting long without flics...hoping to get a new digi within the next few days. if anybody knows where/what kind of shop i can pick up some mean streaks in japan that would be dope.

    oh, and the reason i use the : in place of apostraphes is because the japanese don:t use apostraphes, so it:s a pain in the ass to hit shift + whatever every time...

    I dunno about way up there, but here there's a store called The Workman that has some streaks. Not sure about the variety of colors, but I know they have some. Also, in the mall type things they have here, there's an art store call Sekaido and they should have some too.

    For Sakura meanstreaks, as well as paint markers and spraycans (they don't lock 'em up in Japan), just go to the "Tokyo Hands" store in Shibuya. It's like a Japanese Home Depot/Wal-Mart. For your digital camera and other electronics go to Akihabara. The green JR Line will take you to either place. Also check out the graffiti wall in Yokohama near the Landmark Tower... good luck.

    you will notice stores in japan open up and close down/go out of business very quickly. prices of food are also ridiculous


    $6.00 cokes
