I have started grad school and quit both of the jobs that I have been working for the past 9 months. It has been a while since I have been in school, and it feels great to be learning about content that I am passionate about. However, it is tough to transition into the routine of writing papers, reading academic resources, and sitting through class.
Besides all that boring stuff, the big news is I have also started a new band!!!
For the past couple of months we have been recording our new EP and performing at little open mics around Boston with these guys. I haven’t spoke about this new band too much because we want to give the birth of the group proper pomp and circumstance! It is something very different from any other music project I have been a part of.
Hopefully by the end of the month we will be able to release material online to showcase the new group, but until then get excited! Cause I am!
Summer is here guys…

Hey yall! sorry for the lack updates! Times have been crazy. It has been hot! wowzers- its becoming that time of year that I sit around and sweat a lot. Besides the heat, Boston has been fun. The Celtics have been killing it and the Boston Marathon was today and I cannot believe how many people pushed through the heat. Craziness! I was able to hit a bar down by the waterfront yesterday and I cannot say how amazing it was. Hanging with friends on a rooftop right by the water with perfect temperature! It does not get any better than that!
Anyway- more videos coming soon. Until then, life has been good my friends!

NEW MUSIC VIDEO!
Almost at 400 views!
Whats cooking? Sorry for the lack of updates, life has been rolling and rolling these days. I finally have my flights and classes all set for the summer and things are feeling under control again. I also know that I will be back in Japan this summer and will be hitting north and south California for a couple short trips as well! Now that the flights are set and my wallet is lighter than it was before, I am in the early stages of planning a summer show back in Tokyo! I am also talking to my California buddies about a possible camping trip!
Otherwise, I have been writing more music- the ideas are beginning to flow as time goes on. However, I have still been searching for more musicians to play with out here in Boston (currently following some leads). I am still pushing my new music video as well! Remember to please pass around “Where are you from” as much as possible!
In other news, I have been studying a for the teaching exam that is coming up in May and hanging with friends. I went to see the Hunger Games the other day, and although I had not read the book- I thought it was pretty good. The world that the author built was a cool one to dive into, but I could not help but think about the similarity of the story line to the Japanese Film “Battle Royale.” If you haven’t seen it I would recommend it! It is a lot more gruesome than the Hunger Games though, I think it is far from PG-13. The film makers of the Hunger Games did a great job of keeping it edgy and serious without showing so much gore. I don’t know if I would take my kids to see it though hahah, it was intense!
OK that is all for now. New video coming out soon too!

So the snow is finally falling in Boston! It must only be third or fourth time this winter, we are all hoping for a snow day tomorrow- but we will see. Doing taxes, filling out financial aid forms, and watching Jeremy Lin has been my thing these days. The taxes and financial aid forms a huge headache but watching Jeremy Lin throw down with the Knicks has been awesome. Besides killing it on the floor for all of us Asian Americans, the fact that Jeremy Lin is bringing to light the amount of subtle racism there is against Asian Americans is great. The SNL skit the other day put it perfectly.
Otherwise the song writing is finally coming along. I’ve recorded my first demo in a long time. The song isn’t done but it is the first piece of music since Baby Steps that I have recorded into the computer. I am really excited about it, fresh and new. I am thinking about shooting a video for that soon to release in the summer, just something fun to get out and spice things up a bit.
I am also in the middle of figuring out my summer plans. Depending on how school goes I am hoping to be throwing another event back in Japan! I am thinking about merchandise as well. Shirts… wristbands…? Any ideas?
OK guys- thats all for now, I am planning to upload a video soon so bare with me! Also, my editor Brian is in the beginning stages of fixing up the new music video for a hopeful March 12 release!
Please help me get my Sheep Chase Video to 4000 it is super close! And remember to subscribe!
