Hi everyone! Just wanted to say that i think it SUCKS that Japan gets all the cool stuff! Like remote control Gundams (with hi-res camera and bb-gun built in) and that Smash Bros. orchestral concert? It sucks!

yeah, sucks don't it? Just do what my brother did, move there... currently he's tutoring three college guys in english staying in the college dorm, and he was scouted by a Japanese modeling company, which means if he gets a good contract he can get a working visa, make quite a lot of money, and stay there indefinately...

There is a lot of cool stuff here, but there are drawbacks as well. For example, the part of Tokyo where I live didn't get cable TV (let alone cable internet) until a couple years ago, and we didn't get ADSL until a half year after that. Yes, this is Tokyo!

So you may want to think twice before taking neotatsu's advice and packing your bags...

But while we're on the subject of cool stuff: you should see the junk shops around Akihabara. Hardware and software you thought you'd never find, in bins on the streets! [I really need a Homer drool emoticon here...]
