Probably the greatest, comprehensive analysis on one of the most important film makers in animation gone too soon, and my direct influence in storyboard/visual storytelling in animation, the late great Kon Satoshi.

Rest in Power, Kon-san!

Wowwwwww.

OMG I just got the most adorable postcard from my hairstylist <3
(He couldn’t form a single English sentence so we had to speak Japanese the entire 2 hours. I’m guessing it probably took him a long time to compose this message, which makes me love it more!)

See it’s these little things like this that I love about Japan. Where people will do stuff like this to try and connect with you when they totally don’t have to. 
And this note is also so very very cute.

I made an educational video about Kampo! Please excuse my terrible face.

*Appreciates this mostly because I’m an asshole and amused by the level of gross that truly must be*

Don’t trust jisuk (or Koreans in general) when it comes to how spicy things are.

Ha ha ha I think Jisuk would have liked my last roommate. He was from “The South” and liked his spicy everything super hot.

I am a big weenie baby where just looking at a chili makes me cry so Japanese “spicy” is a-ok by me.
