For those of you wondering why things have been kinda quiet here, I’d like to announce a special project I’m working on.
I’ve been making a short film tentatively titled Arcade A-Go-Go, in which I visit a once vibrant arcade that has now fallen to ruin.
Here’s an article I wrote on what gave me the idea to make this film: http://filmfestivaltraveler.com/film-arts/film-arts-previews/2635-the-resurrected-arcade-part-1
Principle photography is complete and I’ll be sure to keep you all updated.

I don’t usually talk about restaurants here, but I have to say that Cafe Hi-Collar in NYC is the best katsu sandwich I have ever had outside of Japan.
Damn fine coffee too.
What’s that? You have a bust of Shakespeare in your personal library? I guess that’s neat.
Now if you excuse me, I am going to take this Dr. Pepper that I poured into a wine glass and read some Dr. Slump while Usagi’s visage gazes at me from the bookshelf.
