Rocking duos/ still no Pokemon in Japan

So I am not gonna lie and say with some pride I am a babymetal fan, I remember when I first got here and their album had just come out I was like “what the hell am I looking at” kinda thing with these little girls doing heavy metal in skirts, but now with the world wide fan base these teens got, it’s very hard to not recognize what kind of influence they got on the genre now. Recently at an awards show the girls got to rock the stage with Judas Priest front man Rob Halford. Adding another notch into the growing list of bands these girls are meetings and collaborating with, it would be an understatement to say their fame is still on the up and up, http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/watch-rob-halford-cover-judas-priest-with-babymetal-w429794

 

So as we all know Pokemon Go has been the major thing for the past three weeks or so, however in Japan, many of us are still waiting on it to actually launch, with delay after delay so many people are getting quite disappointed in the fact that theĀ  game is still not out, these past few days we had gotten promises of a launch, but yet once more are we sad with disappointment, http://www.japantoday.com/category/technology/view/another-disappointing-day-for-pokemon-go-fans-in-japan

About the drinking blogger

So for anyone who wants to know a bit about little ol’ me. I currently hold the self proclaimed title of being a Nomad, this is namely of course because I do not stay in any one location for a very long time. For example to begin, I was a military brat for 16 years, then moved on to be a preachers kid for another 6 years, after this point I joined the Navy and came out to Japan for 4 years, and now I’m residing in same country but simply as a college student.

I guess I can say claim most normal tropes of being a Japanese Otaku of sorts. I love anime, love reading manga, and sushi is one of my all time favorite dinners to eat almost on the regular, (minus convenience store food due to money issues).

As an artist I got into drawing about the age of 6 or 7, started drawing stick dudes in scuba gear. My notebooks in class would be filled with them swimming across my notes, or having huge sea battles with giant underwater robots that crossed two whole pages. Did this for some time until middle school when a friend who was good at drawing figure showed me how she was drawing her’s and I basically copied and repeated on my own for some time. It was when I hit highschool that me and one of my best buds started printing out crap tons of pictures from anime like Gundam, or Dragon Ball Z, and we basically copied the master animators with computer paper and mechanical pencils for some time after that.

I sort of consider myself quite the social butterfly, and the curious sort too, trying to meet new people and learning new things as much as I can, and one basically works with the other to almost form a perfect machine. I learn things to interact with different groups of people, and in turn meeting new people allows me to learn about different things.

My current interests reside in Gaming, art, music, and philosophy. With gaming, art and music, I’ve basically been into these for quite some time. However Philosophy has been more a recent interest due to my philosophy classes at my last school.

Finally and of course, I’m a major craft beer fan, I have been enjoying craft beer for a few years now and hope to keep enjoying them for quite some time afterwards. For me it’s mostly the flavor and the different styles of beer that come out is what peaks my interest. Plus the pubs that sell craft beer tend to be a lot more fun then normal bars.
