"We've kind of got to tell a lie. We'll go back into history and there will be black people where, historically, there wouldn't have been, and we won't dwell on that. We'll say, 'To hell with it, this is the imaginary, better version of the world. By believing in it, we'll summon it forth'." bbc.com/news/amp/entertainment-arts-36442982
Ahh I see. Sort of makes sense. I'm off to nippon land next march and already have a few plans for my hols. Really want to see to sumo wrestling and Mt Fuji. My brother wants to visit Diver City to shop about and see that fucking huge Gundam mech outside.
You're going to Osaka then? for the sumo tournament?
asians probably think brits and poles are the same
is that a hobby of yours?
I wonder if the Victorian image is still present in their minds when they think of the British.
In Tokyo, I passed by an office dedicated to sending Japanese students to British Universities.
perhaps. don't they have an English looking street in Japan with red telephone boxes and the like?
Doubt it, they probably laugh at us these days.
Yeah but everywhere has those, our top universities are like Harvard everyone worldwide wants a place.
The amount of fuckers with Oz accents was just depressing.
I'm staying in Tokyo (akihabara where the Hotel is) for 2 weeks but will be venutring outwards after I get bored of the Vidya and Hentai shops so Osaka would be an idea tbh
If you want to see Sumo wrestling. There's only like 6 tournaments a year tbh. You might want to book ahead for a day of watching. The March one is in Osaka.
Ah yeah, but was full of 'British stuff' in the windows. The Japanese guy inside invited me for a drink and chat when I went inside.
Really maintaining the side chap.
Yeah in my spare time I like to do analogue photography, this naturally led to me buying up cameras and having them given to me by family/friends and even sometimes customers at the pub I worked at. Eventually I got a bit of a collection going and then I started tinkering with the ones that were in a state and this movie camera's really been a focus of mine. Stunning cosmetic condition (like pic related but better) but for some reason it couldn't run for more than a couple of seconds without throwing a gear so I've taken it apart, cleaned all the parts and put it back together and now it seems to run perfectly. Also cleaned up all the glass because it was far too dirty to ever shoot with. Going to put a roll through it later this year I hope because 16mm is getting harder and harder to get, especially the "double perforated" format that this one takes.
Which is why I booked the trip in March. It's only a 3hr train trip to Osaka for the sumo championships and also the apple blossom comes out in the Fuji gardens. March is the perfect time to explore that place tbh.
Cool, if you like Judo as well, go down to the Kodokan in Bunkyo on Tuesday nights (5 to 7pm) I think. free to participate and watch.
I shall be updating Zig Forums on my adventures. Should be fun. Free internet connection in the hotel too.
I have read some comments by the Japanese and Koreans saying that they need to be careful with their migration policies so they "don't end up like the UK".
However people from both countries have also said that they "like England", and I do think they get the same stereotypical picture of England (Tower Bridge, red phone boxes, Beatles) as we get when we think of "Japan" (Samurai, Tori gates, castles, Tokyo neon).
Brilliant strategy when you think about it.
boss whipped me for hours and now finally I am allowed to sleep 3 hours before work. night klads
Lad who stole an APV and went joyriding on the anniversary of killdozer.
Haha, but you have to bring your own judo kit I think. There's a lot of buildup practice as well as far as I could see. Practicing falling on the floor and whatnot.
never been into photography but a lad brought a leica camera into work a few weeks ago and it was beautiful. if i ever have a family id probably buy one of them to take pics of my wife and kids with but i'm just giving myself unnecessary feels at this point.
I've had similar where they make an offer at the starting price and then message me complaining that I didn't accept their offer.
That's the plan
Selling an electric guitar as well, after mandolinkike I've stated explicitly in the description that I won't consider posting it at all but some twat sent me an email asking me to post it to Italy for £35 inc. P&P
Recently sold some wheels with tyres and was offered £50 less than the asking price because they could pick them up the day after.
Eventually sold them to a Hungarian chap from Bath who paid the full price cash on collection.
I was selling a tent at £350 for a few months last year and was getting a £250 offer every single time from the same fucker in Ukraine over and over despite me specifically listing it as collection only and UK only. Posting it to Ukraine would have cost as much as the parcel and they weren't willing to pay that postage so they tried complaining to eBay about me refusing to sell it to them.
