Ha ha ha, nice (I don't know that particular band, but the point is obvious)!

Watching the games themselves is a lot of fun, I'm sure. All the rest around it - the security, the high prices, all the people - is not, I think.

Blog: Not a typhoon in Okinawa or Kansai all season. But now, when we're moving, we suddenly get three all at once. We already know our cargo will get delayed, and we have no idea if our flight on the 24th will even depart.
We have had a very quiet typhoon season this year, with nary a single storm hitting the mainland or Okinawa. But now that our things are loaded on a freighter bound for Okinawa, and our flight to Naha approaches, this suddenly happens: ...

+Ben TN I was kind of hoping for a grace period before we get the full weather experience. Did not expect having our entire household stuck on a ship in Osaka harbour for who knows how long.

Swedish flatbread (tunnbröd) wrap with a thick layer of leftover hummus; lettuce and tomato; sliced Japanese baby eggplant pickles; and a dollop of yoghurt sauce is an excellent combination. The creamy hummus, the crispy vegetables and the slightly acidic pickles go very well together.

Made raita from the rest of the yoghurt, and had the roll for lunch.

A good interview about white poverty in the US. It's about a specific country and with the rise of Trump as the hook, but it's really more generally valid about structural poverty and hopelessness.
 
The first article I've read that gives a reasonable explanation for Trump's appeal.

+GPS Driver Interestingly, the lecture was not about inter-group interacions, but intra-group interactions. It was important that there be someone within your group that you can look down upon. The joke was: no matter how bad things get, you feel good about the way the group is working because it has kept you from being "that guy"

Blog: On our way to Okinawa. That typhoon we worried about has veered off, so our things (and we) will arrive as planned after all.
So, we're finally leaving for Naha. That typhoon I was so worried about? It has been very obliging so far. We feared it would head straight to Okinawa or Osaka, but instead it stopped on Monday morning, turned, and has been o...

At least we have the good fortune to keep the apartment here in Osaka. We don't need to pack everything, and we'll still have some pots and pans, furniture, fridge and washing machine around when the moving company leaves. And a good thing it is, since we don't actually leave for Okinawa ...

When you get out of the shower, and you go directly from dripping with water to dripping with sweat — with no dry moment in between — you know it's time to forget about saving energy and just turn on the damn air conditioner already.

Today's learning moment: If you try to make hummus, and accidentally forget to boil the soaked chickpeas before mixing them, you can not boil the hummus mixture afterwards in the microwave oven.

But the end result is interesting: a lump of soft bean dough, effectively, with agreeable taste and texture. I should try making small steamed patties out of that mixture one day. Should become something like smooth, soft, lemony falafel.

But this time I just started over with canned chickpeas instead.

+Cass Morrison Yes, soak, then grind. They cook as you fry them. The starches in cooked chickpeas have swelled and become less sticky, so the falafel is likely to fall apart. That's why people have to add lots of flour or even an egg to keep them together. Then they have to add baking powder so they don't become so dense.

And they say there's no good music around these days. This I could listen to pretty much all day long.
 
I swear I'm not a hipster, but...
I'm soooo digging this Icelandic prog rock song! It starts out a bit slow, then takes off around the 3:30 mark.

I have been listening to some Icelanders for quite a while now, and being at the SONAR festival in Reykjavik 3 years ago we realized that in Iceland Björk was main stream.
They surely take their music seriously.

Janne. In Osaka. And Okinawa.
Introduction
From Sweden, but I've been living in Japan for many years. I've worked as a researcher in cognitive science, neuroscience and robotics.

Now I work at OIST in Okinawa, as a member of the Scientific Computing and Data Analysis section, where I assist researchers with computer modelling, HPC and using clusters and supercomputers.

Spent a summer in grad school building a trebuchet instead of doing any actual work.

Good Nepal style curry set place. Not spicy, but well balanced and tasty. A set meal is two curries, rice (regular or genmai) and a set of vegetarian side dishes. Atmosphere is somewhat hippy-ish with busy decorations and reggae through the speakers.

Tasty homemade tacos and taco rice. The set meal is not big, and may not be quite enough if you are hungry, so add a taco or two to your order.

My favourite ramen place in Osaka. New-style ramen, with a thick noodle and a variety of heavy soups, though you can get shoyu based soup if you prefer lighter ramen. Try kara-miso ramen with cheddar cheese. The shrimp gyouza are also excellent.

Very good Thai restaurant, less adapted to Japanese taste than most. The seating is not terribly comfortable, though, and the bathroom is Japanese style only.

Pleasant ramen place with traditional decor but a modern take on the food. The soup is very thick with more than a hint of sweetness. The noodles are pleasantly chewy. Japanese-style toilet.
