Gracias ... just don't think I want to do a big LUNCH ... and drink drink drink ... and wind up wasting my whole day on a meal ... really want to do din din

 

My Ishi email was indeed intercepted by the Omakase Mafia ... as expected ... as if I need this intermediary for anything other than to take a couple lbs of my flesh when it was I who spoke to the resto directly by phone the day prior ... but since I don't have a phone # for them to call me re a waiting list opportunity ... and they are only setup to make calls and not send emails ... and we went back and forth a few times with me trying to explain how I can Skype them but they can't call me (data SIM, data SIM and that I'm not set up properly to receive via Skype) and why I want to give them an email address and I'll respond instantly either by email or I'll call them back and they can hear my beautiful voice ... well let's just say progress is slow and the clock is ticking and I'm not totally convinced the Mafia passed the msg along ... but I'm a skeptic until proved otherwise ... it's often the right way to deal with the commercial world ...

Burst into Takumi Shingo unannounced today ... as is my between meals modus operandi ... and 4 guys are spread out on floor, chairs and counter as if killed by the mafia ... only they were sleeping and didn't stir with my first three Kon'nichiwas ... chef comes out ... nice white T-shirt by the way ... we chat and I decide not to push it cuz I'm going in March ... but now I've seen the 9-seat, semi-bent counter space ... and that's why I flyby ... I want to know and see where I'll be with my very own eyes

 

Similar full court press chez Higuchi just prior to T S ... lots of sleeping and waking there too

 

By the way, I want to report back from the future ... I've been to Kagurazaka Ishikawa already ...  ... and I went in March 2020 ... yes tis true ... the only thing that would prevent it is if I'm no longer physically on the planet ... and in fact that is my ultimate goal ... and I'm getting there ... slowly but surely 

 

How did I like Ishi ? 

 

No way, man ... that's a trick question and the answer is classified ... why ? well it's very complex to explain ... it has to do the structure of our universe and I'm not going to get into all the details right now because few if any would ever come close to understanding ... although Wilf would make valiant try aka air ball ... but let's just say this ... I can report FACTS from the future forever and ever ... the universe is constructed so and can deal with it easily without being stressed ... HOWEVER when feelings and opinions decelerate faster than the speed of light (and that's what it takes) all hell breaks loose ... searing tears in the space-time fabric are ripped open and unfathomable demons and monsters invade our world ... and guess who has to clean it all up, huh ? Take a wild guess ... you know who ...

Gracias ...

Désolé pour ça merci-là en espagnol, I admit that I was hamming it up a bit at the time so that’s why ... so once again, sorry for that Spanish ... I'm serious

Jamon ! Give me a break, will ya ... we can't have any fun around here ... geesh ... what's with you people anyway !

It's not like I'm in Eating in Japan ... I'm out and about in my own little world ... a fabulous place I might add ... Japan ... yep still here

Spock?


Come on, Joe, get a grip. It's totally illogical to be logical around here ... you know that ... so it's much more Mork and Windy, wouldn't you say ?

By the way, what do you forecast I'm going to do next, huh ?

Regarding things that I'd normally say and that I've already written but lack permission* to post, you wanna be a star, Joe ? do I have your blessing to proceed ?

Just say yes and I’ll fire away

Actually it's going to be a joint starring role cuz I'm involved too and yeah it's about joints ... by the way, you're kind of a porn star, but you’re good with that, right ?

I think you come out looking real good :unsure: but stardom is always in the eye of the beholder ... so here's the deal ... you give approval and I'll dig into the archives and I promise a little Supper post to go along with the big one here ... and pornography is pretty much fine here, right ? I read the legal fine print and didn't find anything against it

And Joe, if you say no, I think you're gonna really be blowing it

In other news ... stay tuned ... cuz we have some NFL action ... and Chambo is thick into major warfare on the Yogurt Front and it's a pretty sour affair ...

* @Orik - yeah yeah, I know I know, Danger Danger, it'll have to post post-Japan because I still got a lot (a bellota) on my plate** ... it's gonna be epic ... I think you'll come out looking really good too ! Trust me ... have a little faith

** and I haven't forgotten about you at all, Eat, but some news in November is fine for Feb ... be chill ... but I'm really more of a public figure ... go figure ... I believe more in private industry than private communications ... anyway you're doing just fine for the moment ... but probably overly ambitious on what you'll actually be able to achieve ... but nothing wrong with stretch goals ... so it's two thumbs up for the moment ... you're in with da Vinci, right ? He's a good buddy of mine too ... yeah I used to hang with him in the good old days ... true story ... we're pretty much from the same nest ... we both have a billion ideas and we never finish any of them ... because once you see the picture perfectly in your mind's eye ... the dreary execution of it all seems like a total waste of time ... but I'm working on that cuz he was severely criticized for that very aspect ... and I don't like off-point criticism ... on point, Bring it On ... I'm always willing to learn .. off point, War ! ... but can't we all get along ? Let's just Make Love all day, non ? Trop francais pour vous ? ... pffffft ... Americans ...

Haven't been to An Di, looks nice.

 

Looks are deceiving ... An Di is of no interest ... first meal in six weeks that was a waste of time ... a joke of a "Vietnamese" resto ... and of course I hold no one other than myself accountable for the situation

Decent dinner chez Chateau Chambo tonight … a tad complicated since it was a bit hectic at first  … but All’s Well that Ends Well, right ?

 

From here on out … I’m going to leave it to the professionals ...

 

TL;DR … Chambo awakes from a coma and rocks the World …

 

From coma to cooking to rocking … crazy stuff … wasted but shuffling … “hands up, Brit … you’re arrested … time to Party … come with me in Shibuya … we're going now …”

 

Chambo, me and myself, a little disoriented meet up with the real world … it happens rarely … but it happens

 

Home Boy … what do you mean … the whole world ? seriously ? fuck the demo … It's real time all the time chez Chambo !

 

Learn to live in REAL TIME … have a good time … lose your mind … Chambo in da hows !

 

Where he goan next ? tis anybody’s guess … and I have absolutely no idea either ...

 

 

PARTY TIME ... LMFAO ...

@ Ev ... I'm fully aware that this thread did not proceed as you might have expected ... or hoped ...

 

but I am NOT one who desires to disappoint ...

 

when do you arrive in the land of the Rising Sun ... what do you need prior ... what might you want know ... your humble servant

 

if I can be of any help ... serve any cause .. please do tell ...

 

for I am Fudō Myōō ... with burning desire in my belly ... standing here, wanting to please ...

 

yes I'm from the Middle Ages but almost a 1000 years has not slowed the spring in my step ...

 

speak to me now Ev ... or forever hold your peace ... and make love not war ...

 

cause things are about to take a MONUMENTAL TURN TOWARDS ETERNITY ... the Age of Chambo is about to begin ...

 

but I can juggle many balls ... and I can take many forms ... for I am Ovidian at my core ... that is my nature ... nuture nature ... nature nuture ... n 'n n and on n on ... ad nauseam ... Escher is your usher in Chambo's cinema ... welcome ! cuz you're never leaving ..,.

 

it's the Apocalypse Now ... I'm swimming in troubled waters .. but I will soon take full military command of the planet ... and my new age will dawn ..

 

doubt Chambo at your peril ...

I’m in at Miyasaka
I’m in at Yamasaki


Superb meal tonight with zen master M

Wise on deck

Then on to the Peninsula

 

 

eta - my work here has succeeded ... I have achieved what I set out to do ... I hope to further explain ... M and Y ... these are just celebratory dinners of today's success ... it was a MONUMENTAL day today in Japan ... so read the news ... but that ain't the half of it ... that ain't the real story ... but this is the reason why I came here ... the real story is how Chambo used THE POWER to be front and center with all those royals ... what did he do there during the enthronement ?   ... stay tuned ... stay tuned, my friends ...

Glad you're having a great first visit to Tokyo! And I appreciate your offer. You definitely have 'the touch' with getting into some of the places that are nearly impossible to get into on short notice (or at all).

 

I am heading over in mid-December. After a lot of visits I start hounding my concierge as soon as I book my stay. I have used them for 6 years, so they know I will ride them like a pony until I get what I am after. That usually makes them proactive about procuring my reservations asap  :ph43r:  :P . So I am pretty much set for this upcoming visit.

 

Who knows, maybe our paths will cross there in the Spring.
