Indiana Jones and the Mystery of the Golden Scarab

It was real real gold-ie.

Big snail

It was real real big.

More assorted Buddha stuff


I've always enjoyed the endless mirth whoopee cushions produce - the anatomical diagram on this one completely rocks nations. Poot! A real Bronx cheer! Oops! Oh!

Black Paradise Flycatcher mania

I've been dying to see these wacky birds for ages. The male has a massive tail. Hee hee! Took a lot of droning mosquitos, skin-rip thorns, sweat, and close encounters with banjo-playing Korean hilbillies, but I finally ticked this elusive birdie.

Oh man won

Up until about a week ago, the Korean bill of the highest denomination was the man won (10,000w), which is worth about 9$ Canadian. This was annoying if you were going on holiday or had to take out a large amount of cash for any other reason - you were left with massive bank-job bricks of green that you had to lug around in a hyperinflation gunny sack.
Last week Korea issued the oh man won (50,000w) bill, or about 45$. I like half of it. The front features Shin Sa Im Tang, the first woman pictured on Korean currency. Not overly sure who she is, but apparently she was an artist, and she gave birth to the dude on the 1,000w note. The back side is terrible. A dead tree? Boooo.

Fuzzy beach

Bum sand

Been hitting the beach in the mornings lately with the scooter gang boys. Brought the wetsuit and snorkeling stuff, but the waves and rip were too strong today, so we opted for getting wave-nihilated instead. There is sand up in my bum.

Do not make regretful things

No bugles past this point

Gettin' so lazy with my blog entries. Where's the damn beef?

We hope you like clammin' too

The butt pad is pure great.

Creepy peanut fellow

Pong So-li

I think it means 'bread sound'. Love these guys, they remind me of the legendary 'Sof Boy' comics. Plip! Oops! Aaah!

What are the odds?

Of finding a random Korean girl wearing an Expos hat? M 'til I DIE!

Halla hit redux

Last week, Optimus had the sweet idea to climb up the tallest mountain in South Korea at 7am. My legs and knees suffered, but it was hells worth it.

Emptier than Empty Empty Empty

Cobain let his little yellow scoot run out of gas. Gas in a beer bottle, hilarious! Antics!

Blam too

Can't think of a better way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Nope, can't think of one.


Sometimes I feel like I'm in a movie. Today was one of those days, and the movie was Red Dawn. Rock!

Brought some visiting friends to the uber-touristy Cheonjiyon Falls the other day. Right before they got there, I thought 'This is great, it's a quiet Monday morning, we'll actually have this place to ourselves.' Just as those hopeful words came out of my brain-mouth, 17 tour buses rolled up and started crapping out hundreds of high school boys from the mainland. Each class had its own personalized shirts - my favorite class was the screaming Leonidas boys. Any soothing properties this place may have were obliterated by the unsettling experience of surfing a sea of testosterone and fielding endless question fragments.

Roe, a deer

These shiny cuties are Roe Deer that Optimus and I spotted on the steep-ass slopes of Mount Halla the other day.

Stepford Wives-uh

Was startled and creeped out to come across this little piece of gated American suburbia in the middle of forest and farm country. Shiver. Hey Jeju, stop building stupid shit.

Little Bastard

This is what happens when you keep me up all night by whining in my ear and drinking my sweet sweet blood, forcing me to track you down and shoot you with a 300 foot-per-second bb gun. That's my blood by the way.

Chicken overfiend + Neo Forte

This is the 'Neo' Forte, the updated version of my scoot. I think it's crap. Why angularize everything and remove the chrome? The curves and chrome are what make it sexy. Oh, and look who's driving - freaky tux chicken overfiend guy.
