|How this all works.|

OK, as embarrassing as it is to have a blog, I figured I needed some way to track all the revisions to the KMZ I have been creating of anime shops in Japan, which you can download from the sidebar on the right. Now I know that I should have had some self respect and created my own CMS, and a page that dynamically updated everything whenever I made changes. However, I'm getting ready for a trip to Tokyo, and was feeling lazy. Thus, a Wordpress blog will have to do. That is also why it is just a stock template. When I get back, if I decide I care, then I might design a real webpage, actually lay it out, and generally pretend I give a damn, but for now, this is what you get.
So here is how this whole thing works. I am just sitting in my apartment putting in addresses I'm finding on the websites of these companies into Google Maps, and putting those results in my KMZ. If you have a friend who just got back from Japan ranting about how I don't know what I'm doing, and one of the shops I have listed is actually across the street from where I have it in my file, he is probably right. I am, at the moment, limited by the accuracy of Google Maps. If I have something in the wrong place, and I will move it. Once I get to Tokyo, I will be checking the location of any of the shops I come across, but unless someone wants to pay for my trip, I am not going to be going all over Japan just to make sure Google got it right.

I am a modeler, animator, designer director, and avid anime freak. I have been working with computer graphics and digital imaging as long as I can remember, and I still love it. I have worked in stage, television, video games, film and even the darkest bowels of corporate America. These days I gravitate to more personal projects, and anything that sounds like fun.
