Hello again! A bit late on getting these up since I’ve been pretty busy as its day #5 right now as I write this. haha Anywho, on Day 2 I was pretty tired from the trip up to tsukuba, and the jetlag so I just decided to stick close to my friend’s house and do some exploring.
yep, that’s right! I’m currently making my way over to Japan again for another 2 week adventure of awesome-ness over in japan! Stay tuned for updates, and i’ll try to push posts out every couple of days as things happen! ^_^
So do you like to listen to House type music with a great beat to get you into the mood to do stuff? Well I found this playlist on Youtube by MrSuicideSheep, and I love every song in the list haha. Great for background music at parties, driving music, homework/project music, and just all round great beats haha. So I thought I’d share it with you all. HERE
What kind of music really gets you pumped and in the mood to do stuff?
Here’s just a few of the ones I like from the list to give you an idea~
Sometimes I have those kind of conversations with myself. I keep getting these busy periods, and forget to upload stuff here. :p haha hopefully I can start getting stuff up in a more consistent manner.
Anywho, for those that don’t know, once a year during spring there’s a tradition in japan called 花見(Hanami). It basically involves relaxing under sakura trees, hanging out with friends, and enjoying some food and drinks. Also, somewhat a yearly tradition, is people taking pictures of their cars during this time with sakura trees in the background. :p
So there hasn’t been a post in a while, and I personally haven’t posted anything worthwhile in long time due to classes, but as I was sitting down writing my lab report, this came up on my playlist and figured I share it with you all~
Hajimemashite! I’m Darrick (no, not Derek). I currently live in Northern Japan and I’ve been taking photos for about 5 years now. I run my own site (XJGPhoto.com) and I’ve known Terrell since High School! He’s been nice enough to let me do a few guest posts here on Domo Factor. Any questions, just ask! Or hit me up on my site! Thanks and lets get to it! First photo!
Smoking is a part of Japanese culture now-a-days. I mean, I’m sure it was before the west showed up, but if you go to Japan now, you’re more likely to see more people smoking on one street, than you will in a whole day in the states. And even with all that smoking, the streets are cleaner!
This photo is of a Japanese Smoking Room inside one of the malls. Instead of making people go outside and into the cold, wind, or rain, they’ve made little rooms scattered throughout the mall that have built in ventilation to keep the smoke from gathering. As a result, they’re usually very clean and don’t smell like smoke at all. Nifty, right? (Also, not me pictured haha)
Just stumbled onto this video that came out about two months ago, and it’s just about how I feel about my car. I’ve always had the online tag AAV240sx. The AAV stands for all activity vehicle which pretty much harkens to what the video covers. To have a car not dedicated just for going to the track to grip/drift and having fun, but to also be able to comfortably drive around without any muss or fuss and relax. Then maybe pick up some groceries on the way home.
