LITTLE CURIOUS MAN

He’s not looking for lobsters, he’s looking for a Mogwai.

Unfortunately if he does find a Mogwai it’s obviously going to be wet. If you don’t know why that’s a very bad thing than I hope for your sake that your dad never gives you a Mogwai.

THERE’S A TURTLE ON THE TABLE

Literally every single person at the Kochi fish market looked like a character from the most incredible film ever. Part of me thinks it wasn’t a market at all but rather some sort of movie set and I just never picked up on it.

If I hired a “science guy” to create a device called an “interesting meter” I’m pretty sure the good folks of Kochi would blow up the machine. Comparatively, most folks near where I live in Brooklyn (such as myself) wouldn’t even make the needle move (assuming the “interesting meter” operates via an analog needle as opposed to a more modern digital readout).

Finally, what the hell am I talking about and what is wrong with me? I have a hot wife somewhere in this apartment and I’m sitting at a computer writing about “interesting meters” that probably would never really work seeing as “interestingness” is a rather objective quality. I just can’t see a robot quantifying something like that.

So now I’m stuck with two options…

1. I can go watch Cupcake Wars with my hot wife (speaking of interesting, check out Cupcake Wars on the Food Network, it’s surprisingly awesome)

or

2. Look for a “Science Guy” on Craigslist

Hmmm….

CIGARETTES AND BOOTS

How incredible is this guy’s outfit?

Pop Quiz: When Vicki and I laid eyes on this man we both instantly decided that he was Japan’s version of a famous 80’s comedic actor. Name that actor!!!

Hint: The actor was Canadian and he was once in a film with Steve Martin that Vicki and I consider to be hands down the best “buddy film” of all time (it actually might be my favorite movie ever).

STAR CROSSED SMOKERS

Here we have yet another pair of star crossed smokers who probably will never meet. So close, yet so far away, it makes me sad.

In my head I’d like to see these two get married and open up a grown-up version of Chuck E. Cheese’s.

BOTTLES AND CANS AND JUST CLAP YOUR HANDS

Actually, no cans, just some bottles.

Also, if you don’t get the “clap your hands” reference then you, my friend, just don’t know where it’s at.

TABLE 23

Yes, you can still smoke cigarettes in pretty much any restaurant in Japan. This is great for news for the following three groups of people…

1. Smokers

2. Cigarette Manufacturers

3. Photographers

Unfortunately, this is bad news for everyone else.

What is interesting, at least to me, is that people in Japan live way longer on average that people in America. Some say it’s the raw fish, but I say it’s a combination of miso soup and midnight robot dance parties.

KOCHI FISH MARKET

Get ready for about a billion* pictures of everything and everyone in this place. Photographically speaking it was by far the highlight of my trip, and that’s saying a lot considering I spent an afternoon here.

*By a billion I really mean around fifteen or twenty.
