It's my 1st and last foray into underwater cams. It's durable and seemed priced right so I'm happy.:D


I've heard that underwater photography can get pretty addictive...kinda like another hobby most of us here are into. :)

I almost got stung by a very very large jellyfish that was behind me while I filmed this one... (beginning of vid....thumbnail is middle of vid so ignore it) big ass jellyfish!!...almost got me.

 

The underwater world is mesmerizing.....

To say I am excited about this is....

Man, I waited all my life for them to get back to the original "Mankind reaps what it sows" dark theme.

Ishiro Honda would be pleased I imagine.

Holy **** I am so ******* excited.

 

GET OFF MY LAWN!!!

WOOOO HOOOO!!!


How did you feel about the new one? I'm a huge Godzilla fan myself and while I expected a much darker movie, I was really happy with what we got. I've seen it at least 6 times already and want to see it once more. There's so many things that they did right and so many of those things are brought about subtly that I can't wait to see what they do for a sequel. They have so many possibilities and directions to go with this.. Who knows, the darker Godzilla is only yet to come? :)

Aside from one good BBQ and a buncha banana boating this summer sucked bad.

Rained a whole bunch. Always on my weekend.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The driver who flipped me around and almost broke my neck is a Jet ski World Cup champion. I had no idea until later. The other guys were staff who had not taken a ride in a while and me...a guy who kept begging for a REAL ride. I hit the water head first and skipped on my back like a stone skipping across the water....good times:D

Time for the revival......

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oh  yeah....this is the entrance to my English School.

Kids had to get past this nightmare.

 

**In a nod to audio......the rumbling sound was a reversed thunderroll on an 8 second loop playing on 2 subs and it shook the ground. folks were ******* terrified.

I am a control freak so opening my own School was the natural way to keep my sanity and it turned out to be far more profitable...about 4x .

 

It takes a lot of work but the pay is good and I make my schedule. 

 

i happened to saw your thread by accident. nice going man!

not all gaijin in japan can hangout with people that are in ninkyo dantai.... you must've done something right along the way!

 

by the way, i gotta ask, how do you manage to open a business in japan?

i thought the law said that you gotta be japanese to have a registered company under your name and have a business?

Not to mention, how does the visa situation went before the english school was set up?

 

Forgive my little curiousity if it's at all intrusive. i hope you have lots of fun there with them yakiniku tabehodai mate!

If you have a lot of money and assets you can be self sponsored or "bonded". My connections with certain folks.....you'd be surprised at what they do before the sun drops......helped me alot.

 

I was on a spouse got separated then sponsored then found a clever loophole but requires a lot of money to clean up any mess i might make. I have a unique history. Money is the true god here in Japan....just like everywhere else.

 

By the way that's my best friend. He's my blood brother.

i was in japan for a long time, so i'm probably not surprised with what 893 are doing on a daily basis but, i do have respect for you because not everybody can hang out with ninkyo dantai so casually. They're good people at heart but it's not really easy to be accepted among them, especially if you're foreigners.

 

and i think from the conversation we had on the ma-900 thread, you don't speak japanese or something?

If that's true, that's double respect brother!

 They actually follow behind me and use wipes on them after i am done on the display sets and behind glass ones. The cheapo isles they don't even enter unless summoned.

The guy who was tailing me told me the Urban Raver IEM were not (something?...alive?..) then after buying the Sony he said nice pair. Then led me to the Denon display and the Urban Raver were suddenly alive:confused: I tried em and was happy to keep the Sony and he seemed pleased and kinda knew I wouldn't take em. I know his boss. This guy is the home theater chief but took an interest in stalking me because I wear Mixed martial arts t shirts and have what looks like a bomb around my neck and talk to myself (the camera) which itself is not cool to do. I scare the **** out of everyone but not on purpose.

I was "A" "B" for hours.  Top 20>>10>4 And went through those 4 again and again and again and unbelievable took a set from Sony Hi-Res stand. That guy has them and the Z5 as well and he says "nice mids"....you ******* right bro!! I wanted to Hi 5 the guy . I spent hours doing what he coulda told me so it was like he was checking if I had anything besides bass on my mind. The mids were stunners when compared to everything I tried. It was a good day. Listened to 2pac All Eyez on Me and then Allman Brothers Eat a Peach and never touched my eq.....good stuff. And there is a TON of **** out there.  But yeah...they do wipe the tips but I think I had a special security detail on me so they did it quick/immediately
