Things I Love Thursday

★ Something extremely strange happened to me this week. My bike was stolen on Monday... but then I went to meet Ian at the Tobu station today... and someone had miraculously returned it. Only in Japan would someone return a bike after stealing it. I found the bike just sitting there outside the station while I was waiting... the light was broken and there were chu-hi cans in the basket, but I got my bike back!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I think if I hadn't watched them as a child I wouldn't have even known that Japan existed. I'm serious. I don't think I would have appreciated Art History as much as I do now, either. Thanks TMNT.

★ Seeing a Square Watermelon in real life for the first time ever. Does anyone remember the commercial we made for Mr. Manear's class? I still have it. On VHS.
Image180Tokyo at 6 in the morning is the most surreal place you will ever see in your life. Tokyo in general is an unreal city, but when there is no one around... it is absolutely amazing and eerily beautiful in a post-modern apocolyptic sort of way.

Hanging out with the teachers from school. They are just cool people in general, and I was lucky enough to get to go to Yokohama with them last weekend. I will have a post up about it tomorrow, hopefully.

★ This year's UT collection from Uniqlo. They are absolutely amazing. Taryn and I both bought this shirt with epic wolves eating pianos on it. I don't know where else I can buy such original designs without paying an arm and a leg for them. At least now I can be absolutely sure that nobody at home will have the same shirts as me!!

Jake and Amir....make me laugh so much. Straight up.

Rainbows over Shinjuku. Enough said.

How about you?! What do you love?!
BTWs.. I know it says Friday... but it's still Thursday somewhere. Apologies for my lateness.


  1. Hello! I was reading John Milito's blog and found a link to yours. I've really enjoyed reading it.

    15,000 Yen for a watermelon!? For that kind of money, I expect blue colored flesh and star shaped seeds inside!

    One more thing. What is that THING behind you in the group photo?


  2. Square watermelons man... FTW.

    I'll post more about the thing in the group photo later on today ;D

  3. Wolves eating pianos? Weird!!
