After what seemed like an eternity, been really-relly tied up for the past couple of weeks, continuing my Otakon 2010 redux.
Had been a devoted fan of Lost series, when I had cable in my apartment.
As far as I can remember, hadn’t missed an episode.
It’s been really captivating, indeed.
Digged out a few absolutely and utterly hilarious copy-pastes from iichan.
Detolf itself is certainly a fine piece of Swedish ingenuity. Just think about it, four pieces of tampered glass, few metal rods, chrome hinges and couple of boards made of a wooden scraps! All this for around $60, brilliant!
Wouldn’t you mind having a mirror in your Detolf, so you won’t only stare on the fronts of your figurines, Gundams or pristine Victorian pottery for what so not? I certainly wouldn’t!
Was around lower Brooklyn – Bensonhurst area, snapped several shoots of the aftermath of the yesterdays “epic”, according to weather blokes, snow storm.
Scenery here, drastically differ from the City’s. Sanitation blokes here will just plow the streets and leave snow on the side to wait for the good times to come.
From my recent shopping trip to Mitsuwa brought a pack of frozen “Takoyaki” (jap., romaji) – essentially a baked wheat blob with a piece of octopus inside.
That’s where the name of the dish originates from “tako” (jap., romaji) – octopus and “yaki” (jap., romaji) – process of baking food.
Served with special souse and topped with “bonito” (jap., romaji) – dried tuna shavings.
Already pre-cooked and astonishingly delicious.
Do you have an ability to satisfy “otaku” cravings on your side of the pond?
Everydations – a notion that I came up with to underline, photos of mine that don’t really fall under any feasible categories, random stuff so do speak.
Earlier that week was on Manhattan to get some art supplies in china town around Canal street, back streets around this area drastically differ from what an outsider may think of shiny and sparkling city of glass and concrete.
