Back to the big city...

Firstly, I must admit that I'm really proud that we elected a president like Barack. I couldn't help feeling joyful watching his inauguration speech. He had so many positive messages and a confidence in the American people that I haven't really seen in my lifetime. The best part is that he's realistic about all of the challenges, and is trying to motivate the country to really buckle down and work for not only what's best for the country, but what's ultimately best for the entire world. Here's my favorite quote from the speech:

"As the world grows smaller, let our human commonalities spread." Well put Barack, well put.

Tomorrow I head out for Osaka with Joe to get another taste of big city life in Japan. For being the country's second largest city, the people here don't think Osaka has too much to offer. I guess that could be expected since a lot of our students are middle aged housewives. There's a booming night life and the food there is supposed to be really good so I'm pumped to do some shopping, dancing, and eating. It'll definitely be a nice break. I'll take a few more pictures than Tokyo, that last upload was almost embarrassing.

And lastly, another update on the 11 second club. I still haven't touched some areas, but let me know what you think.

OBAMA! The inauguration speech was excellent. What an exciting day.

Osaka is an incredible city, much like Tokyo with a more laid-back attitude.

Definitely try Okanomiyaki if you haven't already, as it comes from Osaka.

You are making me jealous, that is exactly where I would like to be right now.

Ok the Jungle Book might be dece but what really takes the cake is "It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown." This classic piece of animation can be found on youtube in it's entirety. Secondly I know that this contest is supposed to be about the animation and not the filler, but i don't care how objective these guys are, they notice the extras. I'd suggest that you try to create strong characters, yours are all a bit generic, and also develop their environment. Dress that bad boy up in a little black dress and they will cum all over it, if you know what i mean. peace out son!
