My Widdle Bwain

Dang

First off, note to self: About Chichibu's silk history


Second off: dang. I should have skipped being cheap and gotten the GPS. Turns out that I'm going through Shibukawa tomorrow, so I want to find this place. Problem is, the address I have isn't complete enough to find it based just on that. I have the district, but not the exact street address. I do, however, have the exact GPS coordinates. And nothing with me capable of translating that into directions to the location. Dang.

Depending on timing, I may wander around and see what I can come up with. Or I might say screw it, and see if I can't (finally) walk out and confirm if I'm right about the location of Yuuichi's gas station.

I love my hobbies. They make me learn words so that I realize that the cab driver wants to shake my hand (at least he's not taking that handshake back to his home planet as part of his father's legacy), and allow me to pull out directions to very old temples in outback, Japan off the top of my head.

Tomorrow's plans: Hit an old temple on the Bandou pilgrimage that I've been meaning to get out to for years. Probably also grab random shots around Shibukawa, since it turns out that we're going through there anyway.

More Movie News

Meh... Looks like new movie is going very, very alt-verse:

TVの中のウルトラマンに憧れ、宇宙船の船長になることを夢見る少年・ダイゴは、ごく普通の青年として成長し、今では横浜市の観光課に勤務する平凡な公務員となっていた。

彼の周りには、幼いころ一緒に夢を語り合った幼なじみのアスカや我夢、恋人のレナ、そしてハヤタやダン・郷・北斗らがいた。
彼らは皆、家族と幸せに暮らす平凡な人々だ。

この世界には、ウルトラマンも怪獣も実在しないーはずだった。

しかし、突如横浜港にキングゲスラが出現。
これを追うように、ウルトラマンメビウスが現れた!

いないはずのウルトラマンがなぜ?
混乱するダイゴをよそに、やがて時空を超えて、次々と出現する怪獣たちが横浜を蹂躙。メビウスも危機に陥った。

この世界はいったいどうなってしまうのか?
この未曾有の危機を救うというメビウスの言う”7人の勇者”とは?

そして、ダイゴは自分に課せられた大きな使命を知る…

Will translate later.
