close-up

another painting for emily.

Hey all you Marimokkori fans! Here are some new hilarious marimokkori I found on my fifth grader's pencil cases. Remember, marimokkori is cute because he always has an erection. Click an image to enlarge.
Afro-mokkori with his buddy, Mameshiba.
Supa-mokkori

Tokyo Yanki Mokkori.


I did it. At the board of education forget-the-year party, I ate pufferfish testicles.
The milt was warm and creamy, (like salty yogurt), surprisingly good. I was tricked into trying it...my colleague told me, after much sake, that it was sea urchin. I new better, i just wanted to believe him. The second one was much harder to swallow. check: craziest thing eaten in japan.
Here we are playing santa at the kindergarden.
Ashley and Daisuke actually made their costumes themselves! Little sleep. Since I was the only white male in our group, I had the privilege of being cast as Santa, of which there was already a costume. I was free. But at the same time I was the only one denied important sewing practice: and the complimentary increase in intelligence.
Back to the Temple. When I first saw the rock garden at the zen monastery in my town I was a little disappointed, to tell you the truth. I mean, I was expecting more large boulders that represent islands or mountaintops, and curvy lines that are the water or clouds. But there are no mossy islands or jagged mountains or curvy lines in this garden. Only a field of clouds seen from above. just waves disappearing into the ocean.
Now I think this is the coolest rock garden in all Japan...It's definitely rebellious. And so spacious..mmm.
A close-up of the new tree painting. Can you see the buddhas? There are five. I'm presenting this to its buyer friday night after we go out for some sushi. I hope she likes it. (Remember, I was the M.C. for her daughter's wedding last summer, a great honor.) "a great honor"
