Apply to JET Program - Vlog #7 - Send it in!

My final installment in my most recent series of vlogs about applying for the JET Programme.

I'll be back with more vlogs about JET in the new year with a series about the JET interview process.

Thanks for watching!

Virtual Zeppelin-Black Dog

This is one of my favorite series on YT.

This type of collaborative video seems like it was invented for YouTube. Friends in different places film themselves playing their part of the song, send it to one person in their group and he edits it all together to make a whole song.

really well done. They have lots of other songs, including some excellent Beatles covers, so click the video itself to be taken to their homepage.

SUMO - Fukuoka - Day 6 highlights 11-14-08

Sumo has started again, but unfortunately I have been so busy that I haven't been able to watch everyday.

I caught this highlight show on NHK late Friday/early Saturday at about 2am. So it's all in Japanese, but I throw in plenty of my own commentary.

I'm sad that I can't travel to Fukuoka and watch this tournament live, but I hope to post more bouts as the tournament goes on.

Enjoy some quick highlights of the last 5 matches from Day 6 - Friday the 14th.

RJL Vlog #5 - NaruyoJapan visits IzumoTaisha

A Japanese woman who also posts on YouTube came to my town with her daughter in October to visit my local shrine, IzumoTaisha.

She contacted me thru YT and we decided to meet up so I could show them around for a few hours.

So enjoy this video with more footage of the beautiful IzumoTaisha. I will truly miss this place when I leave next year.
