Pardon the Delay

I'm currently in-between computers and homes and beds and states and minds right now, so expect updates in about a week or such and so forth...

Love Only.

The Vicious Guide to Japan


Today is my last day in Tokyo, and also my 24th birthday. We’re shooting the campaign for a new clothing brand called Arnold Palmer (think Marc Jacobs, but with a splash of lemonade) The timing couldn’t have been better! 


As with any photo shoot, there is plenty of downtime to write this final Asian Edition entry:


The Vicious Guide to Japan


Capital: Tokyo

Symbol: a dead whale under a rising sun (they are lobbying to change it to that awesome robot-toilet)

Population: 127 million, approx density of 2million-jillion per square kilometer

Languages: Japanese, hand signs

Food: sushi (anything from fish to horse to chicken is fair game... and delicious), katsu, soybean everything

Religions: Dragonball Z, Pok√©mon, Hello Kitty and One Piece. There is also a small contingent that ritually prays to the Shinkansen high-speed train system (of which I am a devout member). 

Infrastructure: best roads and public transit in the world, although there are only four public trash cans in the entire city of Tokyo... and they’re all ‘recyclables-only’

National Pastimes: waiting in line, crossing the street, smoking (everywhere), taking too many photos, video game bars, video game arcades, video-game theme-parks, video game conventions, video game themed cosplay, molesting women in the subway, bukkake, sumo wrestling and baseball... all while being completely adorable!

Natural resources: anime, giant lizard-monsters, way too many alphabets

Exports: funny looking cars, disposable fashion, over-valued collectibles for nerds, tsunami-relief concerts, three-eyed fishes

Well known fact: Japan has the world’s lowest homicide rate, but the highest suicide rate.


Little known fact: nobody here is actually a ninja. Except KFM and me.
