Now I'm getting worried...

As people have seen in my previous post, I have thrown down the glove to a bunch of the foreign bloggers here in Japan and they didn't hesitate to pick it up and slap me right back with it... After a flurry of e-mail activities (for some reason most intense during working hours...), failed Internet polls and such activities it seems like we actually almost have managed to fix a date. This doesn't worry me, not at all.

However, what worries me is how hungrily everyone has accepted the venue to be "The Lock-Up", this happens to be one of the crappiest horror theme bars in Japan, probably a world-wide contender, but definately up there in Japan. Now, myself, I'm a connoisseur of crappiness. I relish in crappiness, the crappier, the better as far as I'm concerned. There is one condition in there though; it has to be a real attempt at making something good but landing on crappy, if it's made out to be crappy on purpose that delicious flavor of failure gets lost and it doesn't really interest me any more.

What scares me a bit is how everyone quickly accepted and seem genuinely thrilled about going to this place, maybe I've met my match. Maybe I shouldn't have been so quick to throw down the glove... I'm genuinely scared...

You want to talk crappy? I own The Stuff (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0090094/) on DVD. I regularly watch Creepshow on Halloween and *voluntarily* watched the House of the Dead movie.

Fear us...

Yes mr Salaryman.

Your new found friends are probably going to be a great dissapointment. Please feel free to write crappy things about them after your little gathering. I´m sure you will >:-D

You *are* dealing with ThePenguin, someone who has been known to willingly purchase and consume happoshu.

Who is this Martin guy up there? Thank god you're not bringing him to our League of Dorks meeting. His lame-o seriousness might make me want to saw off my arm and hit him across the face with it.

Happoshu?! Sweet Zombie Jesus!

Mr. Salaryman said...

Cowgirl - Don't mind ol' Martin, he's just a big cuddly guy with a beard so large and cozy that you just want to curl up inside it and forget about the world for a while.

Penguin - I will pretend you never mentioned Happoshu, let's leave this behind us and never bring it up again.
