Back to the future the musical

A friend of mine in England went to see this musical last week. I’m not really a big fan of musicals, but I think this one looks really good. I love the movie and I hope I get the chance to see how it works as a musical.

Are there any classic movies that you would like to see turned into musicals?

Tagboat Art Awards

On Sunday I went to the Tagboat art prize awards at the Hikarie Building in Shibuya. Tagboat is an online art gallery and shop which focuses on young and new artists.
Here is the internet link. http://www.tagboat.com/
Some of the artwork was very interesting, including this woman`s face which was made from shopping receipts. However, to be honest, I am not such a big art fan, and I enjoyed the free beer more than the art itself.

The Witcher (this isn’t about beer)

Most recently I’ve been into a TV show and PS 4 game called The Witcher. They are both based on a series of books.  The Witcher is about man on adventures monster hunting. Witchers are made from a young age and modified genetically to hunt various creatures such as vampires, ghosts and trolls. They are usually paid to hunt these creatures. In the PS 4 game you have to research the creatures you are hunting and learn their weaknesses.  The TV show was pretty entertaining and the game isn’t bad.

Rainbow in the sky

I saw this cool rainbow in Chiba the other day. I’d never seen one like this before. It was only a partial rainbow and it was directly overhead. It looked like the sky was smiling 😊 at me.
Have you ever seen an unusual rainbow?

Japan’s Mini Beers ミニビール

Has anyone ever seen these at your local supermarket? These things crack me up. I mean, who buys the little cans? It’s definitely not me. 

On second thought, it might be funny to do an entire night of just drinking the tiny ones. Then again, I might have to buy more than 30 of them. Ha ha.

Beer walking with a stranger back in Japan 飲み歩き

Long time no post folks, so I thought I’d share this one.

Back in May, over the Golden Week holiday, a very special person from Jabble’s past was in town for a few days.

Anyone remember this beautiful big man’s face? That’s right…Ryan!

So how to celebrate such an occasion? Well, why not do what we so often did when he was still in Japan: walk around Tokyo drinking beer!

Oh, and our lunch time (beautiful) mistake: a bowl of fatty miso ramen.

ごっつ ラーメン (Gottsu Ramen)

Oddly, after lunch I didn’t feel nearly as bad as I thought I would. (I followed Dave’s advice and tried to limit the amount of soup I ate. Ha ha!)

Thank you ごっつ ラーメン (Gottsu Ramen)! You were worth every minute of the food coma.

Welcome back to Japan, Ryan! You’ve been missed!

Wrestling at Kameido Tenjin Festival 亀戸天神祭りのプロレス

Jabble 英会話 Wrestling at Kameido Tenjin Festival 亀戸天神祭りのプロレス

A couple weeks ago we headed to Kameido’s Tenjin Festival. On the way to the festival it was pretty quiet so I was wondering if there was actually a festival going on.

But when we arrived, we were not disappointed! Pro wrestling baby! I’m not a huge fan of wrestling (I was when I was a kid), but I have to admit, seeing it live was pretty awesome! Seeing the wrestlers doing flips off of the ropes was amazing. The wrestlers were really nice as well. After it was all finished, they stayed around to take pictures and sign autographs.

Events like this always remind me how incredible Japan is. Where else in the world can you see pro wrestling set against the backdrop of a shrine and Sky Tree?! Methinks not too many places.

Well, another great day off in Japan!

Halong Bay, Vietnam ハロン湾 ベトナム

For Golden Week I got the chance to spend five days in Hanoi, Vietnam. It was a great country with really nice people and excellent food. Here is a picture of me with the guys at Halong Bay.

And here is a bowl of pho that was only about ¥150!

Oh!…and the beer was about ¥70!

I can see Vietnam in my future. Ha ha!
