wild  sexy  fun  japan Lived on the Inside.  Seen from the Outside.  


You go to work with the sleep you have, not the sleep you might want.

Monday morning. JR Express Train to Osaka.

7:53 a.m.



8:12 a.m.

I was tired, but not bone tired as this. As we both got off at the same station we exchanged pleasantries; by that point she was quite chipper, but flustered, and dashed off to the nearest bus stop via dark forgotten stairs off the far end of the platform.

...an lurn how to fuking sppel. 

You're painting us all with your Pow-R-Spray-R of ignorance.

this little baby got her strut on!

a TV crew of indeterminate importance harangue a girl sitting along the kamogawa, minding her own business.

 Here we go again...

(petty yes, but also titillating.)

everyone loves you when the camera's rolling...

We got the shot...let's beat it.

Yebisu Amber Ale...welcome to Fall!

very good beer...like Anchor Steam, for a limited time only.  Kampai !!


I don’t want to sell anything, buy anything or process anything, as a career...I don’t want to sell anything bought or processed or buy anything sold or processed or...process anything sold, bought or processed.



...and then there's this cat.

with the double-breast, the Louis Vuitton bag and the 10-pin bowling shoes. Style!

I said "Pimps before Chumps," and let him board first.

 deceive, inveigle, obfuscate

(I don't know...works for me)

 this poor sap made a real tactical error, venturing into this rainy a day with a gray linen suit and no umbrella. 

 his jacket was equally soaked. he was nervously cramming a technical manual on experimental protocol of some kind, and appeared to have a long day ahead of him.
