have i gushed about gurren lagann yet?

everyone should watch it! it's a funky fresh adventure that everyone should watch! did i mention that you guys should watch it? even if youre not into mecha anime, the story is pretty far out, so get ready to be entertained. i think that's all i'll say tho hehe... so watch it.

on a totally different note, my dude that i coached last year for the speech contest got 2nd prize this year! needless to say, i was beyond proud. i still remember the look on his face when he clutched his dinky participation certificate and told me, "i will... win next year... for sure!" and this year he got himself the fatty certificate and shiny plaque ^^ him and the number one kid get to go to the prefectural semi-finals in a month or so. then if they do well there, they go to nationals.

total excitement.

playing the jeanne d'arc psp game at the moment and it's actually quite captivating... gonna get back to it now, lol.

curses. forgot to make a post about the "Storm" event at my base school while i had all this energy to talk about it lol. anyway, to put it in a nutshell, imagine martial arts cinema from the 80s, with rows and rows of topless dudes wearing thin white cotton drawstring pants (kinda like judo pants) and a streaming white hachimaki (like epic in length - went down to their ass).these are the freshman boys of the school. oh yeah, theyre barefoot too, but some of them have epic white tape on their feet! then they start bellowing and hooting and hollering in the most masculine manner they can. for the next hour they prance around a huge bonfire singing folk songs in unison. you get this frat boy kinda vibe from the whole thing, except it feels much more structured and really militaristic. then you got the higher-ups (upperclassmen) who are dressed in the same style as the freshmen, except theyre wearing red hachimaki that go all the way down to the floor. theyre the ones who stand on a platform and beat the huge drum. you also got higher ups walking up and down the ranks as the freshman sing and prance around, bullying them (verbally) into order.

remember the matix reloaded? was that the 3rd one? anyway i was immediately reminded of the scene where theyre all underground dancing in slow motion all orgy-porgy-like... minus the heterosexual grining and techno music.

the freshman were in constant motion around that blazing fire. i think the point was to work up a good sweat while losing your voice as your feet bleed beneath you and fire embers singe your skin and all that... cause thats good manly fun!

the event ended with a rather impressive fireworks display. afterwards i trolled around for a few minutes to see this famed 'girls giving out refreshing drinks to their favorite guy' custom, and i gotta say, if you werent looking for it, it would have been almost impossible to catch haha. those kids were super covert ops about it. like hiding pet bottles up their sleeves and dealing them out shuriken style! crazy kids.

yay for cultural festival. my kids are so on the button it's scary. got to get some good eats, watch exciting shows, and our english club movie was a success! meaning more outside people than english club members came to see the film haha.

advertising (posters etc.) was very exhilarating too. behold!

did i come to see what this class had to offer? heck yea.

tomorrow is supposed to be sports day, but since it'll prolly rain and regular lessons will be carried on, im going to do a 'words of encouragement' kind of theme for my classes.

it's cultural festival season, and the english club movie is done and done! subtitles and all hehe. i hope people come watch it ;_; there are like 3 showings so im hoping thatll give folks enough time to do what they want and then come burn up a whole half hour with us haha.

anyway, im excited cause Tokyo Game Show 2008 is officially less than a month away now! oh baby oh baby.

oh a totally different note, i heard it through the grapevine that theres gonna be this devastating earthquake in japan tomorrow morning, saturday Sept. 13th. as a matter of fact mr big and cool prophet dude? also predicted more earthquakes and pinpointed all the big ones around the world...

so just in case i totally get owned by this crazy earthquake, i just wanna say these 23 years, almost 24 years, of life have been grand. i have no regrets, and i just wanna thank everyone who i can call my family and friends. if my life gets claimed, my corpse will probably still be clutching my psp or ds or something lol. i would have gamed on it til the very end to ease my pain lol. im turning off all the gas etc before i go to sleep tonight... i'll put the 2liter bottle of water + rope and shoes at the side of my bed...

anyway i tried out the Valor brand cup noodles and theyre not bad... theyre not as good as nissin curry noodles, but the regular flavor and seafood flavor are almost identical in taste and quality. the curry one just doesnt have that thick, curry-like texture of the nissin brand! i got another mosquito bite today. it was while i was riding my bike... i totally felt it happening too but there were too many people behind me and in front of me (and it was in the dark next to the river) to stop and grind ms mosquito into a paste. that meant this mosquito had to have been flying like the same speed as me like in Speed, park on my foot and stay latched on as i was pedaling. why me? i think thats a lot of useless effort. the bug should have just gotten some junior high girl idling on her phone or something... but no, it goes for me... i really want to know what is it about my smell + taste and other chemical stuffs about me that makes the mosquitoes so crazy... i dont know my blood type... maybe its super cool and rare! ... which would kinda suck for me if i ever needed a transfusion or something...
