Interesting Japanese bathroom   3 comments

Traveling around Japan, you will find that the interiors of bathrooms are often heavily decorated with artwork, graffiti or stickers. These are a few pictures from a bar in Shimokitazawa.

このトイレは、下北沢駅のちかくです。いっぱい絵があった。

Crazy Mad a Road fan! マダローヅ!   Leave a comment

My customer at the Kanagawa festival was really full of Mad a Road vibes!

あの人は、1枚のマダローヅシャツを買った。面白ろかった!

面白い音楽だ.ヴィブズカーテルより.   Leave a comment

This song is super funny! I worked for Comedy Central in 2008 from a writing internship that had me writing and reviewing skits and parodies all day. I love seeing this developmental style of comedy getting bigger and better in Jamaica.
面白い音楽だな!

Konshens & Delus in Japan!   Leave a comment

I had the great opportunity to meet Konshens, Delus and up and coming artiste Dario here in Tokyo at Ageha. I met up with them again in Kanagawa (about an hour outside Tokyo) , at the first annual Reggae Pride Festival put on by Shiloh Productions. Glasses and watch by Nooka.

Jamaican in Japan featured on Untemplater!   Leave a comment

I wrote an article entitled,” The Siren’s Song: Your Call to Action” for Untemplater.com. I designed the image that accompanied the article, which is a sort of … simple picture depicting a man stranded on an island as the “song” (his dreams, hopes, etc) float away from him. Please read the article and comment!

Nihon Terebi TV Shoot 日本テレビイベント!   3 comments

Junko was the 2002 Dancehall queen winner in Jamaica. This might not sound like much, but Junko is Japanese, and she flew all the way to Jamaica back then and against all the odds (or so people thought) was crowned the first Japanese dancehall queen of Jamaica. Nihon Terebi (Japan TV) was recording a small feature on her and needed some talent to act as Jamaicans in a re-enactment of her first time in Jamaica. Yours truly was the MC and the spot will be aired on October 8th. I had the opportunity to go to her birthday party last year when I was living in Hamamatsu, Shizuoka.  Glasses, Watch and Belt by Nooka. Jeans by Gimme Richie, Mad A Road t-shirt by Marcus Bird.

Me & 2002 Dancehall Queen Junko!
