Let’s fuckin’ rage!

Sometimes as a result of drinking at home alone, I get the feeling to step it up a notch. Let’s fuckin’ rage!

Conversation 130105 Far East

We had a somewhat amusing conversation today.

SW: When you’re constipated, think of Bruce Lee. He will scare the shit out of you.


FB: I do need to shit.

I changed the subject at this point since I felt there was no where else to go after his response.  So I followed up asking about the nengajo, or New Year’s Card, I sent him.

SW: No postcard?

FB: Yeah. We got it this morning. We want a picture like that now.

The nengajo had a picture of my wife and I decked out in kimono with an autumn background.

FB: We were thinking of getting a Vietnamese style photo when we go visit my wife’s motherland.

SW: That would be sweet. Like a rice paddy hat and AK47?


Don’t they make a lovely couple?

FB: Yeah, maybe at the bottom of a pit surrounded by hand made wooden death spikes.

SW: Maybe in the background, Rambo running and screaming with a detached mini gun in one hand and a machete in the other?

Some time had passed at this point.  I thought I would let him know about the current situation at my household.  My wife is handy in the kitchen, like all wives should be. She is particularly skillful in the baking of bread, cakes, and other things that normally include flour, butter, etc. Three friends of mine came over to learn how to bake some stuff.

SW: My house is international today. There is a Brit and two Taiwanese here.  Plus myself, American, and my wife, Japanese, I almost have my own UN going on here.  The wife is teaching baking to some of my friends.

FB: Legit. Diplomacy through baking.

SW: Breaking the culture barrier one cake at a time.

McDonald’s Megamac

It’s a Big Mac with 4 patties. I guess it’s about the same as eating two double cheeseburgers – at the same time. For ¥710 (US$8.13), I guess it’s not a bad deal.

24 Hour Endurance Tag

I was introduced to a comedy group called “Downtown” the other day by my australian buddy. One of their more popular skits is called 笑ってはいけない (waratte wa ikenai, No Laughing).  I was able to watch a few hours of this show on New Years Eve before the ball dropped here in Japan. I think even people who don’t understand Japanese at all would still find their show pretty hilarious.

However, I think one of the show’s best “punishment games” as they are called is the 24 Hour Endurance Tag.  This is pure genius.  Four guys holed up in a gymnasium from 8am to 8am the next day.  During that time they are subject to 3 rules:

1. Live in the gymnasium for 24 hours.
2. When the oni (demon or, in this case, tagger) appears, the game of tag starts.
3. If you are caught by the oni, then you must receive punishment.

Pretty Simple. The type of punishment to be received is marked on the oni’s chest. They can appear at anytime, from anywhere, and target any of the four participants.

I won’t talk about what the participant’s are subject to. I don’t like spoilers. So you will just have to watch the show for yourself. Below is the YouTube video. The video here is four hours but the show is only 2 hours long, just repeated twice; the first with sound, the second without sound.

This show would go great with beer and pizza or chicken wings or the like. So make the preparations and sit back and enjoy.


This kind of entertainment can be enjoyed by all I think. If you have some time off and a large group of people (such as a fraternity, sports team, military unit, work shop, office staff, etc.) and some wide open space available for use, why not take the time to do something like this. The rules can be altered if necessary. And alcohol can always be added. Of course, don’t do anything that would get someone hurt or worse.

Social Media: Disconnecting the Connected


Post your problems on FaceBook one more time.
I dare you. I double dare you mother fucker!

I have a theory about social media and the concept of it to connect people. I think it has connected people so much that it has ultimately disconnected people. Through continuous updates of your status, photos, favorite bands, books, and TV shows all it takes is a couple minutes to get updated on somebody. Now there is no need to ask them how everything is going or what has been going on. You already know. You don’t even need to discuss it because you already did in the comments.

Maybe social media is a good thing in allowing people to connect from all over the world and keep in touch but I think many people have really gone overboard with it. Perhaps you can share some of your thoughts on it as well. On FaceBook!

Conversation 121229 At the Spa

The following is a text conversation between Fattbuddha and I the other day. He took his wife to a resort/hotel I guess as a Christmas present or something for her, but pretty much for himself from what I can gather. That is irrelevent. But it was $250 or so for the night for the two of them (correct me if I am wrong) and it seems he had no clue as to what he paid for.

FB: I was just at the spa. I walked around Naked, took a shower, and sat in the sauna. I had no idea what was goin on. Where is the masseuse?

SW: Just scream “onegaishimasu!” Someone will come.*

FB: We are staying the night dawg. I have no idea what I was supposed to do. I wanted a hot babe to rub me.

SW: Oh. Sweet. I don’t know what you’re supposed to do either. Just go with the flow. I am watching Boss Coffee Commercials with Tommy Lee Jones

FB: Yeah. It was kinda liberating walking around, hang out with my wang out.

Not sure what services he was expecting. Perhaps the following?

Tommy Lee Jones and Boss Coffee


     This is not something new that I have stumbled upon.  I have known about Tommy and Boss since he started doing the commercials. But I thought it was something I should post. Perhaps as I come across advertisements that I see I will be sure to upload them as well.

     He has also recently portrayed the same character in Softbank commercials as well. The commercials are in Japanese so if you don’t understand then oh well.


     Weather you understand or not, if you have a small understading of Japanese Culture then some of them should come across as funny. Enjoy.

Movie Quotes

Star Wars

“I find your lack of faith disturbing.”

Darth Vader


I thought it might be worth while to list movie quotes as they come to mind. It’s probably not in the better of interests to rate them in any order as each quote has its own time and place to be used.
However, I think this quote is especially useful. You can use it in practically any situation. Take for instance, your wife says to you, ” I bet you forgot to buy milk and eggs.” You can immediately bust out Darth Vader’s words followed by a Force choke.
Or when your friends challenges you to drink an enormous amount of alcohol. Except you will be using the Force to choke yourself the next day.
What other situations come to mind to use this quote?
