ps im in japan.

when we first got here we still had some money so we went traveling. first on the list was kyoto. kind of in love with this city. where we live now is very small industrial and suburban. its actually really depressing for anyone raised in a city, or you know loves paved roads. call me selfish i guess. either way kyoto has a large and amazing college campus as well as insane amounts of cultural things. we stuck to the fancy part of town because it was somewhat better labeled, but we got lost a lot. the back streets had some of the cutest cafes and stores. it felt a lot like denver, but quite a bit bigger and more modern. its a city we'll hopefully be checking out a lot.

im really excited for august though because greg's parents will be taking us to tokyo and i am flipping shit about it. they want to do kyoto and nara too. i think ill just peace out and stay in tokyo for the week. oh sweet tokyo ill do anything to see you. ANYTHING!

youtube tuesday

so the xx use to play on repeat at urban. it was one of the few cds we had that didnt make me want to blow my brains out by the end of the day. but i never knew how fucking hot they were. maybe i should pay more attention to the internet.

i mean come on! hot. fucking hot.

this is from the online comic "Lifelines" that i fell in love with recently. i feel like this moment is very true for me.

lucky strikes!

the boss man took us bowling last weekend. apparently bowling isnt all that popular in japan. or at least not in our town. on a friday night this place was dead. but i got some pretty pictures out of it anyways.

i got what the japanese call the "boobie prize" for being the worst player. which was awesome because all thing boob related is awesome. it was a pink kick ball and a box of doughnuts. who knew sucking at all things pysical could pay off so well? i guess ill be continuing my life long losing streak in order for more boobies!

youre slow to letting me go

perhaps its all the gay clubs that made me really like this song, besides well that i know this feeling in my bones. but this has been my jam, and i dont know why i didnt think there was an acoustic version. but here's a side by side comparison of what was march's theme song. man now i just want to post t&s videos.

i loved the mixed version of this song. it would make me dance like a crazy person and apparently very badly. i could still feel the lyrics though, but damn in the acoustic version, its like a sucker punch. its actually a rather heart breaking song.

these ladies are pure loveliness. plus they play and tweet about scrabble so really what's not to like?

a whiskey and soda please

there are very good reasons i miss my friends and my denver. besides the bars and how everyone wore glasses. here are some of my favourite conversations with my friends:

"Wait, wait! What are you wearing?!"
"a skirt..."
"because i felt like being pretty. cant you just love the pretty me?"
"No. Go put some pants on, you're creeping the shit out of me."

"Sex to you is like shaking hands. You put a lot of effort into it but it's not like you're very exclusive."

"youve had one lesbian experience with one girl! it doesnt exactly make you the keynote speaker at the lezzie convention"
"You know you're a real ass sometimes."
"yeah yeah, get back to me once youve finger banged melissa in the library"

"woah! that was intense"
"That eye-fuck that just happened?"
"yeah. i dont think ive ever been eye-fucked!"
"Yes you have! How did we meet?"
"at a bar..."
"Yeah, after I eye-fucked the shit out of you."
"... can we always be friends?"
