Hakodate !

Yesterday I made my way up to Hakodate with the whole team, and today
we are going to fight! But if you ever find yourself in Hokkaido then
you gotta try some of this great food. I recommend the Uni Don it is
the second picture one a bowl of rice topped with a whole bunch of sea
urchin, it is like a taste of heaven, the urchin melts in your mouth.
It comes together with a great bowl of crab soup... Finish that off
with a cold glass of Japanese sake, and your day is over!

part two ?




これは実に言うとかなり怖かったです。。。何の説明もないのにどうしたらいいか分からないまま始まったので面白いと思いながらもしもこれは本当なら死んでました!

This was a lot scarier than it looks, I know it looks like we were just having fun, but the real Kusaridama is made of iron and that can actually take your head off...

Samurai Spirit Kobudo



This is another clip from the show about Ko-Budo, we will be shooting on Sumo next month. I love the shows, not because I get to be on them, but because they are so well done. The effort that goes into each show is just incredible, and to be part of something like that just takes my breath away.

これは最近出来あがったサムライスピリットのクリップですが、このシリーズは本当に面白いです。レポーターニコラスにぴったりな番組です。やってて楽しいし、勉強になるし、本当に楽しいです。来月は相撲の分をとるのでまた楽しみです。。。

Great Party !

We ja a great party last night, all my friends rolled up and everyone
ate and drank their hearts out! My face ended up in cake but I guess
after having had my face shoved in cakes for last many years that was
no surprise! Great times with great people is priceless. I even got a
whole bunch of presents, which is extra cool when you really don't
expect anything. And then I just found out that my radio show is rated
no. 1 of all the shows in Japan on that time! And it looks like we
might be making a training video which would be a spin off from the
parody training video I played on a soap opera last year! Things are
moving in the right direction for sure, and I am having a great
feeling about this year.

Happy Birthday Me 37 years!

It's my birthday today ! Not that I very excited about it, but it is a chance to get everyone together and have a good time. We are planning on getting a family picture taken today, but my beard is still n ot the way I like it to be...So Ii might just shave it all off? That would be the first family picture without a beard!!! Could be funny, tonight we are having a party at the Outback and all the boys are coming along! I am sure that is going to be fun!

今日は僕の誕生日です!なんと!もう37歳になりました。今日は家族写真を撮る予定ですけど?ひげまこの前の撮影から延びてなくって?今中途半端に伸びているのでひょうっとしたら全部きれいにぞろうかな~でも、それだったら家族写真ではひげなしは初めてかも?夜はいろんな人を呼んでアウトバックでパーティーをやります!それはそれで楽しくなります。

Happy Birthday !

Tyson turned one year today, and although I have no clue what this is?
He seems quite content about wearing it? Could be because it is nice
and warm?

タイソンは今日で1歳になりました、しかし、この服は誰の趣味でしょうか?子供
かな〜?僕の方が恥ずかしいですけど?タイソンは気持ち良さそう。。。多分
あったかいから気持ち良さそうで我慢しているだけかも?

ハッピーバースディー!

random thoughts

I ended up going out last night and having a good time with some of my friends, and it just made think about the whole concept of going out with friends. It is something everyone does and it is something we like doing, going out with friends is very different from just going out with people you work with. It is a lot more fun that is for sure and it feels like times flies by you, by the time you know it it is already way past midnight and you start to think about how that headacne is going to affect your next day. But you really don't care because it has been all worth it, your friends is like your second family, often better than your family because they are always there for you. I have not been able to make a lot of friends since coming to Japan, and the older you get the harder it gets to make new ones. But I must say that I have been blessed to make some very good friends over the last few years and feel generally warm at heart when I think about that. I am having a party with most of those friends on Saturday to celebrate my birthday and I am sure it is going to be great, it always is when all the boys get together!

Steak Roast !

I made a Steak Roast last night, it has been a while since I made
that. But that is not because I don't like it, it was because they
don't tend to sell blocks of meat like that here in Japan. I used to
go to this meat place that sold it but they closed down and since then
I have not made a roast. But just the other day I went to Costco and
found a nice block!

ひさしぶりに肉のオーブン焼きを作りました、この何年間は売ってるところな
かったです。昔は上野でよく肉のブロックを買ってたけど、最近食べてないな
〜。昨日はひさしぶりに美味しかったです、また自分はつくるのにかなりの自信
がある。。。これはまた買って食べたいですね!

Fighters training!

We got together for the first official team training of the year, but
as you can see the turn up was close to nothing! I like to blame it on
the cold weather but you never know why fighters don't show up for
training?

チームの初稽古なのに、こんなメンバーしかいない?ちょっと寂しいです
けど、来たメンバーは思い切り稽古をして今年のいいスタートを切ったん
ではないか?

sleeping at night!

I am on my second week of working out now, and although it is kind of going slower than what I used to be able to I am getting a little fitter everyday. I don't see the change in my weight yet but I know I working out because I sleep like a baby at night now. And let me just say that is just awesome, to be able to go to bed at night and sleep all night through. There were a couple of years where I couldn't sleep more than an hour or two without waking up from the pain in my hip. I was loosing it slowly but steadily, it simply wears you down. But lately I have been enjoying some real nice sleep, uninterrupted sleep is priceless. I woke up the other day after having slept all night and looked around my bedroom, going in my mind "Wow that was weird? what time is it now? No way! it's morning..." I am loving my new hip!

よく眠れるようになった!本当に最近は毎日走っているので本当に体が動かした後の眠りって気持ちいですね。久しぶりにこの二週間で毎日夜ベッドに入ってからすぐに眠りに入って、何と朝までぐっすりです。いや~、実に言うとこれは本当にプライスレスです。朝まで寝れるって言うだけで幸せです。前は1~2時間しか寝れなかった、足の痛みがひどくって毎晩目が覚めました。それが最近毎日運動するようになったので本当に気持ち良く寝てます。運動って言うのはちゃんと息を上げていっぱい汗をかいて、疲れたな~って言うのは運動です、自分の頭の中ではリハビリと運動は全く別なものです。ある意味の運動ジャンキーかも知れないです、あの体を気持ちよく動かした後の水はどんな酒よりも美味しいです。今年は美味しい水をたくさん飲みたいです!

New Year New Pipe !

I decided that the old muffler on my bike was way too big hiding the
beautiful back wheel, so I found a really small one on the net and
yesterday we installed it at S. P. Works. It totally shows off the
wheel and looks so much better than the old one. Now you can even sit
on the back and not be affraid to burn your shoe!

新しい年、新しいマフラー!
前のマフラーは大きすぎたため後ろのホイルが見えなかったので、もっと
小さいなマフラーを探して昨日S. P. Worksでつけてもらいまし
た。本当に小さくって、後ろのホイルがよく見えるようになったし、ナイ
スサウンドだし。。。なかなか、気持ちいいです。これで今年のレースは
楽しみです!

2010 Happy New Year

So here we are 2010 it came a lot faster than I had first expected! I mean, what happened to the 90's? I was just quitting school and saving up money to go to Japan, and now its 2010? Wow, I must have been very busy to have missed the 90's. Then the year 2000 came and we passed into the next millenium, and that was...Yes, that was already 10 years ago. Sometimes I feel like I have been too busy, I am always trying to move forward and get to the next thing. In Japan during the New Year break everyone gets a chance to hang out with their families and reflect on the year gone and the new year to come. It can mean spending a lot of time in front of the TV because most shops are closed during this time, but it can also mean some time with your kids. I went running in the park yesterday with two of my girls, and that is something awesome. I am able to enjoy some outdoors activities with my girls now. And they can even keep up with me in the run! Next step is to get the wife to come along! :) anyway, I have a great feeling about this year, lots of positive energy and good things to come. I have some more acting jobs in the works and that is something I love to do, so that is going to be a lot of fun. I will be playing a role out of this time era, so that will be a first for me. All in all I feel very exited about this new year 2010. It is the year of the Tiger btw.

あけましておめでとうございます!ようこそ2010年へ。。。いつの間に2010年になったの?僕はつい最近なように学校をやめてバイトしながら日本に行くひようをためていた気がします。って言う事は90年代はどこに消えた?90年代にもうすぐ2000年になるからミレニアムが変わる話で皆興奮していたの覚えていますか?それはもう10年前の話です!早いもんですね?お正月は大体みんなゆっくりしていますけど、今年は元日から公園に行って何と子供たちと走りました。まさかの公園デビューが出来ると思っていなかったですけど、子供から勇気をもらって本当に走れました。そこの公園を一周するのは2年ぶりです!ずっとジム内のマシーンでしか走れなかった。これは言葉だけで表現できない嬉しいスタートになった、このまま今年をずっとキープしたいです。
