Same here, so I'll see you there.

Haha, love it how you've gone from not knowing anything about Union House to semi-regularly attending the weekly concerts now!

Oh by the way, Skipping Girl Vinegar's album is coming out in September, if you're interested, so there'll be something to listen to before NLOTH or whatever it's called comes out.

In Chinese it's mai-dan-u or something. Not that I'd willingly eat McDonald's in China...

I just wish the movie WEREN'T in english. Jackie Chan's english ftl. I can't believe they gave him a role in Kung Fu Panda. Isn't the goal to give him as FEW speaking lines as possible? Voice acting should be the LAST thing you find him doing.

Awesome. Yeah, I'll probably hit each concert this semester. What the fuck else am I going to do in that two hour gap? It's just a little too short for me to pop home.

Ah, cool, may just have to check that out.

McDonalds in Japan had ONE amazing thing. You know what that was? While my friend and I were studying the menu in Japanese, the cashier noticed, picked it up off the counter, flipped it over, and the entire thing was in english

In fact, almost all the Japanese I know comes from martial arts terms... Words like Zan (cut/slice), Ken (hit/strike), Ryu (dragon?) and so on.
