Batman Ninja holiday viewing

Batman Ninja

Today is our kids’ first day of their (very) long school Summer vacation. Neither of our kids are going to the summer program we booked them into today, so we finished watching Batman Ninja before I started working this morning. This DC Comics movie is filmed in a Japanese Anime style (or several styles), and it’s really good.

If you’re interested in an authentic experience of the movie, you can watch it in the original Japanese too! We opted for the English. 😁

Thinking back to the 2008 iCommons iSummit

I was sitting in my office yesterday afternoon and I felt the need for some Taiko drumming to get through the last couple hours of the week (I have fairly eclectic taste in music at times). That took me right back to one of my life’s highlights: my trip to Sapporo in Japan for the 2008 iCommons iSummit.

Visiting Japan ticked off a destination I had wanted to travel to for a long time. Another big one was Ireland which I travelled to about a decade ago.

I realised that I hadn’t published a short video I created at the time with a few memories from that trip so I uploaded it and here it is.
