Picture of the Day

I removed the number from the title. Made it less stressful. Because, as I predicted, I was not able to keep it daily.


This is my Japanese cell phone.  On which I am watching Harry Potter 3.  As the TV tuner is built in and not run from the cell phone service, it’s completely free. and Harry Potter was on TV today. The thing on the left is the antenna. The music note is the subtitle function that I have on my phone.  Other functions of the TV tuner include that If I wanted to, I could watching two different television channels at once on the same screen.  Also, if I were to hold my phone normally and not in screen-view mode, that information would be streamed under the television.  For example, if I were watching the news weather would be streamed underneath or if there’s a commercial it might stream a link right underneath and thus I could go right to the website, with the television still streaming on the upper half of the screen. I can also hit a button and take picture or videos of what I’m watching, or even set up a schedule and my phone automatically records what I want to watch. like TiVo. It’s absolutely amazing.

This is what my phone looks like normally, by the way

Tokyo by Cell Phone Camera

Here’s a collection of photos I took of Tokyo today with my cell phone from a car.  None of them were edited, it’s just that my cell phone camera acts funky sometimes and adds it’s own slight affects to pictures.


This was, amazingly, the best picture i managed to get of Tokyo Tower.  All the other ones had either a building or a sign blocking the entire tower.  Here you can at least see some of it.

My lens was smudged which gave this picture a nice glowing look

Amazingly Amazing Japanese Computer Cell phone Thing

Today, I found out my host family’s computer can do really nifty things.  For example, it can do the following: You can scan your cell phone directly onto your computer and buy things with it.


Here’s a cellphone. And the computer. In case you didn’t get that from the captions that are directly on the picture.


  The computer goes “BEEP”.

I sound like I’m reading a book for children. “The duck goes Quack!  The cow goes Mooooo!…

And yup. There you go. It’s like swiping a credit card through that little credit card slide-y thingy.  I’ve been working on my descriptive words.

If you’ve commented on a past blog post only for no comment to appear, I’m sorry, and the comments have now been accepted.  Unless your the dude who wrote all sorts of hateful stuff in his post replies.  If you’re that dude, expect your comments to continue to go right to the spam queue. Because they just weren’t very nice
