SpongeBob in 原宿

I'm in the process of changing jobs. I'm still a week away from starting my new job but my new company invited me to a launch party they were having anyway. SpongeBob was at the party, too and lots of people were lining up to have their pictures taken with him.

Nice Shot Scene 2

Video is playing at the Tokyo Helloz Nice Shot Scene 2 event coming up this 8/7 at the Meguro Mod Studio. The first Nice Shot was pretty fun and the line up for this next one is a little better I think so it's probably worth coming.

Haole is a Hawaiian word for a foreigner or a white person. It's also my favorite new word. I really want to start working it in to daily conversations but I'm still not speaking English that often so I have to take advantage of my newly expanded vocabulary.

The word is apparently common on most of the pacific Islands. I learned it from a Filipino guy from Guam. Some example sentences would be like:

  • You just ran over my bike, you stupid haole!
  • This haole guy came in to my shop a puked all over my coconuts.
  • I think that haole girl is traying to talk to you
  • Take your surfboard and get out of here. This is a local spot: no haoles allowed!

For anyone who's been wondering what the Chinese have been reverse engineering lately, it's Flickr. fotolog is pretty interesting and easy for anyone familiar with flickr to figure out, as most of the design and features are direct rip-offs. I made myself an account and plan on using it until the Chinese government shuts me down!
