  1. cool. CreekBoy, Dizz, EBC, Spock's Brain, skidaisuki, Fubuki, kumapix, Markie, l'DaPow, FrankR, AK, SG, TJ, Slow, and Fatty, looks like quite a roll call. . . Lookin' forward to meeting some peepz. Anyone want to set up a party? Or is it a party every night up in the Hak??
  2. Helmets are so steezy these days, you'd have to be unsteezy NOT to wear one. Me, I have to use my head for my job, so if I lose brain function by concussing myself, it'll really put the kaibosh on my career, social life, etc. I've cracked my head on ice enough times to know I wouldn't want to do it without a helmet. Plus the one time I did hit a tree wasn't due to my (lack of skillz), I got cut off by another skier. There are just too many unknown variables out there on the mountain.
  3. Heya, I'm coming to Hakuba in a week and really pretty happy about that. I haven't been on these forums for a whilez but I used to be on all the time and even had a couple of vids and features and stuff. I'll be staying with Fattwins for a month Dec 19th - Jan 15th or so, and so would be cool too meet up with some Naganites, go riding, and shoot some video. Hope to meet up with some of y'allz.
  4. I'll be in Japan Dec 19th to Jan 15th. AND I'm working on getting to Post #1000 - it's about time.
  5. Wooot!! I'm here Fatty. . . and I'm Back, with a vengeance!!
  6. Yakamashi, The kampo book I have mentions plenty about headaches, but nothing specifically about migraines. I can give you the headache info if you email me. If you go to a doctor who specializes in kampo (I know a few now), that`s yer best bet. It should be covered by insurance. Kampo (medicate per diagnosis) is different than the American approach to herbs (medicate per disease), which is what I am used to. Kampo/trad. Chinese diagnosis is and will always be a mystery to me, but you should at least give it a try if nothing else has worked for you. I don`t know enough about ac
  7. I`m here in Tokyo on a pharmacy internship, working in a drugstore in Shibuya, and a traditional chinese-->japanese medicine 漢方 shop in Ginza. It`s cool, but the nights are kinda dull. Holla!
  8. Hi SJ`ers. . . I`m in Tokyo for a few more weeks, and was hoping to hook up with some people on the forum for a night out. I`m here on an internship, but the nights can be dull when you don`t know many people in town. benjaminrok@hotmail.com hollah!!
  9. Hi Sunrise, I`m in town and I`d like to go, but I don`t know where the club is. . . please email me with details! benjaminrok@hotmail.com
  10. Check out the Aquemeni (sp?) album. Last album before they blew up. Super good stuff. . .
  11. Before I know it, I'm less than a week away from leaving for my 2 week long sightseeing trip to Japan, Hooray!!! I will be Arriving in Tokyo July 22, and venturing around as much as possible with my JR pass (I hope I can make it to Niigata). Any of you Tokyo folks want to hang out July 22nd/23rd ? Send me a private if you do. And if anyone can recommend anything cool to check out as far as sightseeing goes, please let me know what I should go see. Sightseeing was never my forte.
  12. gotta disagree with you on both counts, sunrise. . . every woman who I have overheard talking about sex seems to revel getting into the most minute of details, except when talking about their own parts - which leads me to ask, what do women call their piece? - I have never gotten a satisfactory answer when I asked this question. I also believe that no foreskin = reduced sensation. For anyone who wants to test the hypothesis, just walk around retracted for a week, and see if you notice a difference. a little chafing goes a long way. Back on the topic, although I am not Jewish, I c
  13. Someone's gotta explain this whole "Islamic insugency" thing to me, I lack any context at all. My gut feeling these days, is that even when Bushy and his gang lose the November election, they still will have won, as they have made all of their buddys rich while promoting their twisted neocon agenda to the point where it has become the agenda of the vast majority of Republicans. But I guess their is still hope for the Republican party. That guy that everyone thought would fail, Mr. Ahnold Shwarzenegger, is actually kicking ass in California, as he has balanced the budget, is proected
  14. Yer just a hop away from France, which has some of the best riding/riders in the world. Half the Burton team is French. To add: - an emergency bivoac - very cheap, small, and lightweight, so why not - water purification pills - just incase - snow testing kit (about $100 US) - a freakin' camera, so you can take picktchurez. - the fear'a'God
