Month: August 2012


Saturday I went to a rakugo theater in Asakusa. I was in Tokyo anyway for an “internship” (in the japanese sense of the word), so it was a chance i didn’t want to miss. Too bad there were hardly any real rakugo performances… I got the impression that the actual rakugo storytellers only just finished with the introduction by their time was over.

Maybe one or two of the zenza (lowest of the three rakugo performer ranks) actually told a whole rakugo story, the rest (even the shin’uchi) only did the smalltalk introduction. I don’t know if this is what’s to be expected from an afternoon session (it was full house by the way), but i’d’ve (hell yeah double penetration contraction) loved to hear one of the few rakugo stories i know. It was fun anyway, and although i was dying from the aftermath of last night’s party, i still laughed my ass off at a few jokes.


I’ve read a few tweets just now that made me think. America’s war on terror? Don’t make me laugh. English is supposed to be the USA’s official language, right? Then how can you mess up such an elementary preposition?

It’s not a war on terror, it’s a war of terror.


I’m really looking forward to an age when shutting down the computer wouldn’t require me to close everything and then reopen them at boot time. Or more like, an age where the concept of “booting” itself gets outdated.

With a dozen programs and a lot more windows open on six desktops, I really don’t feel like reopening and repositioning them again when I boot up next time. (This is the main reason why I haven’t shut down for days now.)

Just now I was going to insert a screenshot here of those six desktops, but with the current blog engine that would require manually uploading the image to the server, and that’s more of an effort than I’m willing to take.
