Intergalactic, radioactive, radioactive, intergalactic.

Yep, so I'm listening to Beastie Boys' Intergalactic and man that song never gets old or tiring. I still remember hearing that song for the first time, I immediately took every dollar I had saved, counted them up and realized I didn't have enough money to buy the album. I then resorted to radio station phone-in games and eventualy won myself an EP or demo CD or something. Eventually after saving up even more, I got the full album and that, my friends, was my first taste of Beastie Boys and some hardcore DJ scratching work.

So helllo, how are things!? I'm currently in Hiroshima having managed to only squeeze in one Japanese meal (killer Japanese curry) before I board the cruise ship and float above the ocean for the next 4 days. Man, after taking a 26,000 yen taxi ride last time from the port to the hotel, I tried my best to figure out how to get to the port from the airport hotel Im at this time but noopppeeee, not only did the cruise decide to dock at another port, I just couldn't figure out how to get there and resorted to a taxi yet again.

So the last few days have been great, I got to experience and announce for IMPI World Series 4, my summer comedy workshop had it's big "end of class performance" which was killer! For these guys who've only been at it for 2 months and 2 open mics later, they did a fantastic job with 7 out of 9 getting an average of 3 - 4 laughs per minute! I was sooooo proud, like a proud parent ahahah...

And for those of you who are curious about my ring announcer side, you can check out a video of the last (And best) fight of the night: https://www.facebook.com/studioone.com.hk/videos/1753657424922558/

Please excuse my mad-man yelling and trust me, the audience was loud that night...you're only hearing the mix from my mic (and you can imagine how loud the audience was if you can hear some of it reach my mic!), but man it happens to me every time, after fight nights, I have a hard time winding down from the adrenaline and I slept at 4am...but the cool thing is it was super smooth.

And speaking of super smooth, I am having some of the smoothest weeks of my life, other than the usual "stresses", things have been going pretty well for me, to the point I'm getting suspicious with the "this is too good to be true" feeling....but oh well, maybe staring at the ocean for an hour will help.
Enjoy land for the next 10 days!

Hope you got to visit all the history in Hiroshima it made me so dumbstruck that Little Boy was dropped there! But I do recall you saying that you like eating, actually I did mention that as a good “perspective" of travel. In my noob travelling days I never used to do my homework and research on food so would end up eating some cheat eat which was shit food. So now I do my homework to make sure that when I eat I don't have a case of 贴钱买难受。 However, experience shows that bad food and Japan doesn't co-exist. Well maybe on the ground and in the air for food catered by a Japanese airport, can't say so for on the cruiseliner haha :p

Ahaha you're right. I have yet to have bad food whenever I've been in Japan! Everything is fantastic, even when it's not Japanese cuisine! I haven't had any fast food chains while I'm here and I think it'll be years before I resort to any of that.

Nonetheless I didn't get a chance to see the history of Hisohima this time either, had to go straight to the cruise, but that's alright, I'm not really in a "vacation" mode yet.. it's still work for me after all, however, I have to eat either way so food is always factored in. I don't do too much home work restaurants, but usually just for food types. Because I find when restaurants get far too many good ratings, they increase their clientele and then end up dropping their standards while raising their prices...so usually the ones next to them try harder and I end up eating better food for fewer $$$ :)

Just the way I like it hoho~
