Case of the Real Folk Blues

The rain can always have a love/hate relationship depending on the type of person you are. Living in Seattle you’ll eventually become to grow into that person. When I think of the soothing pitter patter of the rain as it softly hits the roof of my house I can’t help but be reminded of the ending theme to “Cowboy Bebop”, The Real Folk Blues by The Seatbelts.

The real folk blues
I only want to know true happiness is
All that glitters is not gold

The Seatbelts ft. Mai Yamane – The Real Folk Blues

Listening to this songs brings back a ton of memories for me. Saturday nights I would stay up late at night watching the anime block of Adult Swim and Cowboy Bebop was the anime out of the bunch that I really liked a ton.

But I won’t take too much of your time, so sit back and relax to the sounds of “The Real Folk Blues”.

Come to think about it, I would choose just about any other genre before any kind of space related anime. But the opening intro looked good so I thought to myself “lets just go with it”.

Lifestyle sunday: Darrot Bun

Hi folks! Sorry for the lack of content this week, I’ve been quite busy lately since the weather is finally starting to warm up. This week has been a very pleasant one for me. I’ve been able to catch up with old friends, help a friend out with starting his manga out that he’s been planning for quite some time now, and now I’m just waiting for some food to be done cooking. Hope all of you have had a good weekend as well. For Lifestyle Sunday today I wanted to give you guys some background info about myself. Perhaps I should have done this as one of the first posts, but I wasn’t thinking in the beginning. Continue reading
