“Drinks and Snacks” Austin 2016

こんばんは!How are you doing?

Tonight I went over to my good friend Mikey’s house for “Idol Nite 3”. Idol refers to Japanese 🇯🇵 who are popular for singing, dancing, and/or acting. As two otaku guys, our favorites are pretty much all the girl groups but there are a ton of popular boy bands as well and we did watch and episode of Vs Arashi so it wasn’t all about the girls! Well, actually it was, since Arashi was competing against Momoiro Clover Z!

Most of the other musical groups we watched were from Hello! Project but we also watched some AKB48 shows and also Scandal. With YouTube, it’s so easy to make playlists of videos to watch. We simply picked from a playlist of the most popular videos of the idols/groups we were interested in. It was a ton of fun (as usual), and I enjoyed spending time catching up with my friend.

And we still haven’t answered the question, “What ever happened to Sayumi?”. Hopefully the answer will become clear in the future.

Of course we had to have some refreshments too so I brought over some saké 🍶, beer 🍺, and snacks, and my friend bought some sushi 🍣 and more saké. Add some glow sticks and we were all set! 🎉

There are so many aspects to Japanese culture and I am happy to have the opportunity to get up-to-date with the pop J-idol world. It’s always so interesting and fun. 🎶 It gets me excited to move back to Japan in the future.

I hope you had a great Friday!

おやすみなさい!
