Month: May 2017

  • T2 Trainspotting

    I was really nervous about watching this, because I was so worried that it could never live up to the original film — which is one of those films that defined the era it came out in, in terms of cultural impact. Did I like it? Yes, I really enjoyed spending time with these characters…

  • Get Out

    As everyone has been saying about this movie, man, it’s great. I won’t go into the details of what makes it so great to avoid spoilers, but I really love where it goes, how it treats the whole situation, and where we end up at the end. Definitely one of the best horror films I’ve…

  • Twin Peaks (2017)

    It’s been less than 24 hours since the airing of the first 2 episodes of the new Twin Peaks series (followed by parts 3 and 4 which are available on streaming services), and I’ve already watched all 4 episodes twice. What to say. Yes, I like it, but it’s definitely very far from what I was expecting…

  • Logan

    I finally watched this yesterday, and as many people were saying, this is indeed quite a good flick, and I’m confident to add it to my list of favorite super-hero movies (that includes Iron Man, The Dark Knight, Deadpool, and Guardians of the Galaxy). Even though I had heard it was good, I still had…

  • A 5th of BitSummit

    And another BitSummit has come and gone in Kyoto. As with last year, I’m quite sad I couldn’t be there, and seeing so many of my friends (through social media) have a blast — during and after hours — was a pain. But I am happy to see that it looks like it’s been the…

  • Ninja Gaiden: The Definitive Soundtrack

    Nice to see Brave Wave getting coverage for their Ninja Gaiden: The Definitive Soundtrack release over at Time Out Tokyo.

  • Duncan’s Pop-up Shop

    I missed posting this in time for Duncan‘s pop-up shop that he did this past weekend at Kanno Coffee, but I still love seeing all of his products in one image like this. Via Canvas.

  • L’appel du vide

    “L’appel du vide” a beautiful photography project by Lukasz Palka that offers up a rooftop view of Tokyo.

  • Kazutoshi Iida

    For its latest episode, Toco Toco TV revisits the gaming space through a profile of Kazutoshi Iida (Doshin the Giant). He produced three games (that was always his plan), before turning into an academic. The episodes features a great look at some of Kyoto’s art spots.

  • Twin Peaks

    Twin Peaks is my all-time favorite TV series. I first watched it when it originally aired, and since then I revisit it on a regular basis. Because we were about to get a new season of episodes (kicking off tonight), I decided to re-watch the series yet again from last month (I think it’s maybe my…
