Neat shit ahoy!

So, this is a sort of gift to my girlfriend. I'm making this so if she gets stuck on a project and can't get inspired, she'll have this to look at. So uh... yeah. o3o

It was for the first time that I’ve seen this building’s rooms. While I was inside I have to say that I was torn between awe and sadness.

I’m not sure what they want to do with the building, but if they turn it into a Casino, well…it’s safe to say I won’t be able to visit it again! So, I took this opportunity to see for myself what those incompetent, ignorant and selfish people have done to the Cazino.

2.3.11 Setsubun
From wiki:

Setsubun(節分, Bean-Throwing Festival or Bean-Throwing Ceremony) is the day before the beginning of spring in Japan. 

From me:

It’s a holiday where people throw soybeans out the door (or at a person wearing an oni [demon] mask) for good luck.

I went to a temple hoping to see oni, but instead I experienced old men throwing candy and oranges into a crowd of mostly elderly women. It was kinda crazy, like old people’s Mardi Gras.
