( Jamaicans <and friends>In Japan Link Up ... After Olympics Celebration)
( Dark Knight Rises )
( China Hates Japan Even More )
Jamaicans <and friends>In Japan Link Up ( After Olympics Celebration )
Went to an area of Tokyo today name Meguro. The specific area in Meguro I went is called Chouja maru literally translated "Millionaire circle". Only diplomats and big wigs live here. And guess what? A Jamaican actually lives here.
About 17 of us showed up (Not all Jamaicans) but they all had Jamaican spirits .... We chatted ( of course) and ate some reallly great stuff. For the first or second time in Japan, I ate jerk chicken and jerk pork that tasted exactly like what we have in Jamaica. Quite authentic, but prepared by a Japanese at a Jamaican restaurant in Ebisu, Tokyo. I have never been to that restaurant, but I plan to go there soon.

|Please no comments|
We also watched replays of Jamaica's Golden moments at the London 2012 Olympics. And we were still screaming and getting all excited as if it was live. We remembered it wasn't live when someone shouted "replay dat fi mi nuh" ..... "Hit the replay button please"
Dark Knight Rises
Watched the Dark Knight Rises today and honestly I wasn't expecting much of it. That's because of the hype that surrounded the last one (The Dark Knight), then I was a bit disappointed after seeing it. Also, after watching the Avengers, I thought no movie this summer could possibly get me excited until next year. But actually, the Dark Knight Rises was worth it. The plot, the story the acting, the star studded cast all delivered. Still wasn't as good as the Avengers but it was a good watch. The gigantic twist near the end also added to it. I give it a 8.5/10
Chinese stage anti-Japan rallies over Senkakus
I cant give an opinion on this one, because I really have no idea whose land it is. But I think that China is just messing around with Japan, because everybody knows by now that Japan won't do a thing except complain. China knows they can only mess around with certain countries like this.
Day 1615 ( Japanese Reporter Killed In Syria )
Monday, August 20, 2012 ( 4 Years / 5 Months )
Nothing much today... My portable I-phone battery charger made my phone started acting strange. It wasn't dialing, receiving calls or anything at all. It just froze.

Nothing much today either.

Finally made my i-phone work again by repeatedly pressing the home button and the power button and also plugging the portable charger in and out.

Day 1618 ( Home Grown - Japanese Reggae Band )
Thursday, August 23, 2012
Went to the beach with some Jamaicans today again to see a Japanese reggae band known as "Home Grown" perform. The creator of the band is a sound engineer who is quite famous in the "Japanese Reggae" arena. He also was the sound engineer at a reggae sumfest. I think he said back in 2006 when Destiny's Child came. I am considering to professionally record some of my dub poetry stuff at his studio because its not that expensive and he lives about 20 mins away from me. This is his website

He went to Jamaica several times and lived in Seaview Gardens

Maki (on the left) also visited Jamaica before and went to
a few of those "passa passa" type parties
Day 1919 ( Steel Pan On The Beach )
Friday, August 24, 2012
Went to YMCA in the evening to teach one class then to the beach again. My Jamaican friend eventually came along. Some performances were going on, then a Japanese steel band from the area went up. They were really good. To me the best performers of the night. Here is a video of them (ignore the "My movie" caption that comes up between 2:14 - 2:19 .... slight mistake :
Day 1920 ( Porn Book In My Post ... !!!! )
Saturday, August 25, 2012
Checked my mail today and saw a pornographic magazine !!! I was wondering what the hell !!!! Who the hell!!!! I made sure to look in the other mails to see what the heck was going on but it seem as if it was only mine....I am still wondering.... No ... I didn't open it .... Honestly ... I didn't !!!
Didn't go anywhere today ... Just stayed in and played loads of Modern warfare 2 until my head got dizzy. My apartment is too small and my TV is too big.
Hey again Rising Sun,
There is only 1 church in Niimi, it's called the Niimi Christ church. In all honesty it is a bit boring, and they speak only Japanese. There is an American lady there (Jenny) she was (and still is) like a mom to me. Her husband is Japanese and she has been living in Niimi for more than 20 years. She also has Bible study on Mondays. She would more than welcome another English speaker...
