I sort of do a very loose version of Bullet Journalling. One thing is lots of lists. This one, called “I want...or do I?” is where I note down things I want to get, and why I want it...or not. In the last column I note whether I actually bought it. It has really helped to cut down on late night impulse buying online and the like. #bulletjournal #journal #lists

In progress. Tiny, difficult thread (Sajou Fil Dentelle au Chinois, a bit thinner than no. 80). Finicky pattern. Self-torture!

Funassyi appeared at a press event yesterday to promote the opening of Little Planet, an interactive science museum/indoor theme park for kids. It is located in the Lalaport Tachikawa Tachihi shopping mall, just off the Tachihi Station on the Tama Monorail in Tachikawa, Tokyo. Here is Funassyi playing with the AR Sand Party!, an augmented reality terraforming sand pit.

Just a quick update....

recently on just hungry - Wed, 2017-10-25 20:25

This update is mainly for people who subscribe to updates by email, but it's also a general notice for everyone.

First and foremost, please do not reply to this email if you are getting this by email. I do not check that address often and your message is likely to get ignored for a very long time. The best way to get in touch with me is via Twitter at makiwi, or to email me at maki at my full name (without any spaces) dot com.

Second, I know that this site has not been updated much for a while! I am working on getting my work schedule in order - I'm still not very well healthwise, which makes things rather difficult, and writing the upcoming book took a lot out of me. But I am still alive and kicking, and I do update my Facebook Page quite frequently. Please check it out!

That's it for the moment! ^_^

Catching new Funassyi videos can be hard work if you don’t live in Japan, and you haven’t sprung for a 274ch membership. There is one place where you can watch Funassyi being his crazy-Pear self for free though. The 360TV site, which broadcasts “360 degree VR” shows, has excerpts from Funassyi’s 274ch Funa’s Kitchen cooking (well, sort of cooking) show. Unlike many other online Japanese video channels (such as Niconico Douga, which has a new Funagoro-Funyassyi channel that is unfortunately restricted to Japan only), 360TV does not have any geo-restrictions, so you should be able to watch with no problems. You can click and grab the screen to rotate your view and see Funassyi from all angles. Watching Funassyi chop vegetables at breakneck speed is quite terrifying.
