Enroute to Japan

"Bass and vocalist K.O. of Peelander-Z bellows lyrics in front of a crowd at the Otto Bar in Baltimore, Md., Saturday, Dec.20, 2008."

Well the 24-hour return trip to Japan has begun as I sit in the airport in Houston awaiting my connection to Narita-Tokyo.

As some may know, I was in Japan earlier this year and had planned on making a trip back this summer. But due to falling ill and then having an internship, the travel was put on a short hiatus.

But that is past now and travel through the main island and Honshu should be great.

I thought I'd update and share some pictures from Peelander-Z from Baltimore last weekend.

I must warn you though, these were after ingesting a few cocktails and were taken merely because I had camera on me to begin with.

Roth had heard they were in town when his buddy was participating in an art battle at the same venue.

Peelander-Z was a perfect show before heading back to the land of the sun. While they sing in English, they are a Japanese Action Comic Punk Band originally formed in 1998, and came into action when in New York City.

While they weren't the same "Peelander-Z" as some say they normally are (crazy costumes, antics) they still pumped me up and had my ears ringing for a couple days. I even downloaded a couple of their albums for the flight. In addition, I got a kick when I saw their label was called "Eat Rice Records."

Well, another short post as I am about to board the oh-so-exciting 14-hour flight to Japan. I'll try to update as soon as possible when I get there and update every chance I get.

Since I did not have a chance to do a favorite photos of the year be sure to check out the archives on the side bar from 2008 and if you're curious, search for Japan in the top right to see my posts from January 2008.

And if anything, see how much I crammed into my luggage.
