If I were a top-notch fighter of UFC or something like that...
I'd definitely pick this up for my entrance performance.
I could picture myself making some steps towards the center of the gate from the pitch dark-backstage and slowly walking to the battlefield, which is a squared ring, it might be wired...,
with humming this song...
Damn it, I just can't stop this envison.
And my hand would be raised.
I choke out my opponent, hopefully.

Today, I'm going to cross the Brooklyn Bridge by foot.
Umm, summer breeze from the river makes me so happy.
Street, oh no, bridge vender. I almost bought it...
Hi Brooklyn Bridge, here I come !!
For me, this was so NY-like.
Going to DUMBO !! This is one of hip areas in NY these days.
Let's just hang around !!
Speaking of Brooklyn, most of you guys picture this shot, don't you? I was really happy that I could take the pic with a school bus. Lucky.
Why don't I stop by?!
On the way back, I dropped off at Bleeker's street

Taking photos is strictly prohibited during the worship.
So I don't have any of it.
You might know I sometimes get emotional so easily and this was the time.
I have no idea on how to put the right words for my feelings. but my eyes were watering, listening to sacred songs. And I was humming with them as you could imagine.
I could do that without the lyrics since the same phrase were repeatedly sang.
A piece of cake for me, doing this everyday on my commute, hehehe.
Honestly, and personaly, I don't think being religious is always good, but people here seemed to be proud of what they believes in, what they do every day. That impressed me.
The chorus members were all men.
Speaking of gospel, you picture big mamas singing so vigorously and emotionally.
So I'd like to see a mix or women only next time.
After having a quick stop in front of Apollo theater, we were headed to a famous charch.
I don't recall the name of it. Because my curiosity were put only in Harlem.
Here are some weird pics in the charch, but I love them.
Found a squirrel!! It wouldn't run away even when people get closer and closer.
The tour was finished at Hilton hotel in the Midtown.
No interest for here. Even must-go (maybe...) museums don't attract me.
I crossed the bridge by the subway and got to Williamsburg, where Damian gave me amazing vibes last night.
Looks like you might be able to find an amazing gadget, doesn't it?!

Now you understand why I said everything was equipped.
People seemed to be taking pics and recording as they liked.
Damia~~n, you so cool !! It was worthwhile.

there was one thing to be fixed firmly.
It's where I'm going to stay in Big Apple.
I happened to locate it on the Internet
and now I realize how lucky I was...
This was the best ever in my trips around the world.
Everything that I need was perfectly equipped,
even some that I've never expected to be.
12 hour-flight was OK, but the access to this condo from Newark was more exhausting that I had imagined. Actually I was beat when I got here. But I had something planned that night.
That blew off my tiredness. It's off-broadway musical, " NAKED BOYS Singing!" !!
Don't you get this wrong !! Yes, it's literally "NAKED". They didn't put on anything.
You wanna try? Just come and visit NYC.
This is what you can never see in Japan, but here in the U.S. That's why I've got the ticket.
There was one hot guy among 5 and I gave it a thought all through the show, like, what brought him here? Is it his real job to make a living? Is this truely what he wants to do? and all that. Of couse, gazing at his what-you-know... Hahaha.

It was a scene of a middle-aged woman standing and singing alone in the middle of nowhere.
She looked partly emotionless, absent-minded, sad and scared, but some other part, silently angry.
It's quite natural that I have no idea what it means since this is very beginning, but at least it was too weird and I didn't think at all that I could immerse myself into this film, at first...
Do-Joon (Won Bin) is somewhat mentally challenged young man.
Because of that, he's slow and quiet, like he has some difficulties in expressing himself.
His mother, who is a widow, manages to make their living by selling medical herbs and doing unlicensed acupuncture.
It's impossible, frankly, it's disgusting, even considered Do-joon is a bit handicapped.
Yes, he's mentally disabled, but this is not so serious enough to do such a thing.
It seemed overprotective to me, but as the story goes, I take it as a meaningful scene shows unconditional motherhood. One of metaphorical scenes for the film.
Umm, no, it might not be the right word to describe. The truth is, I no longer feel the way as I first felt.
One day, a high school girl is found dead.
With only circumstantial evidence placing Do-joon near the crime scene, the police jump to the conclusion that he did it.
His defense attorney is unreliable and the police trick him into signing a confession including a long jail sentence, taking advantage of Do-joon being challenged.
Now Mother is convinced that she's the only one who can help him and prove his innocense.
Last several ten miniutes are so impressive !!
In the film, Mother and her neighbor woman say Do-joon's baby deer's eyes are so adoreble.
Yes, Won Bin's eye are just like those. Cute.
After watching the DVD, I desperately like to know more about this film and I bought this magazine. Also I even read a novelized book.
I'm going to watch this again, anyway.
