IKIMASHO!

Two wheels good, four wheels bad.

Sorry, couldn’t resist the predictable Orwellian pun. Anyway, payday has come and gone which means I can finally afford to buy lots of crap I essentially don’t need but will buy anyway. First on the list is a BMX and I’m a wee bit in love with it. Actually, along with my netbook I reckon this will be one of the best buys I’ve made in a long time. I’ve only had it a few days but I’ve already been out on it loads getting sunburnt and just cruising about. Jumping off stuff is obviously fun too. As this video clearly demonstrates.

On Saturday I decided to ride down to Shibuya and back, and on the way I discovered a shitload of cool stuff I would never have even known existed. The route down to Shibuya basically follows a little river the whole way, and my whole afternoon was warmly bathed in shades of pink. My god, can my language get any more flowery? Boke. On that note, I’ll let the pictures do the talking.

When you don’t have a garden, improvise.

Even my lunch seemed to embrace the pastel colours of the day

Find of the day has to go to this amazing temple not far from my house. The grounds are so peaceful and immaculate. Definitely be going back here to just chill and read.

Saturday night involved drinking beer in Yoyogi Park with my housemate; playing drums at some impromptu rave; having street beers with my mate Tim in Shibuya; going to an Izakaya with the crew of experimental band The Boredoms; and eating ramen at 4am. Not a bad start to my three-day weekend 🙂
