Domo Chat  

Priceless Information  

This is Ian's piece of web. See it go. Go, weblog, go! Go travel in Asia. Go study in Tokyo. Go home to Portland. Nah, what the hell. Go, study in Beijing.

Stop. I am a student studying Chinese language in Beijing.

I started this weblog in the Summer of 2002. It keeps following me wherever I go. But, I'm glad to have the company.

Thanks to Clifton for hosting Domodomo. If you need a flash or website designer, you can do no better.

Domoblog - My old Tokyo mobile weblog.

Domo Music - Music I done made. Shockingly presented under the artist name of "Domo Domo."

First Rule

Portland transportation is the anti-thesis to Tokyo. Why the hell are latte sippers in Portland so thrilled about public transportation? "We could take the 318i BMW to Bed Bath and Beyond. OR, I know, we could taking the fucking streetcar!!!" What is this shit? All the mass-transit commuters in Portland are amateurs. I'm teaching lessons on my return. First rule of commute school: you must live in a state of constant denial of other peoples existence. Why? The domino effect. Acknowledgement of others leads to cordiality. Cordiality leads to fraternization. Fraternization leads to, here's the important one, a potentially awkward social climate. Be safe, don't risk it. This is the mistake so many "friendly" Portlanders make. An acknowledging nod, a warm smile, these lead to societal imbalance. You'd best learn to look at your feet or feign sleep if you want to maintain cohesivity. Newbie!
