Quartersnacks has a really great travelog entry on their visit to Yume Farm in Japan.
"Japanese culture is well known for its attention to detail. They seem to master everything they pursue, sometimes even surpassing original versions of things indigenous to other places. Why else do Americans fly to Japan, convert dollars to yen, and spend money on superior Japanese versions of traditionally American products? So in hindsight, it shouldn’t have come as a surprise to learn that the most impressive D.I.Y. spot I’ve ever seen — save Burnside, FDR and places that have been around for twenty-plus years — was in Japan."
Heard "Cab Fare" on this youtube and started to try to remember who skated to this song in an actual video. It's probably one of the best possible songs to skate to, ever. When I die, I definitely want this on the soundtrack to my funeral. So google gave me this youtube. "H Street 1990-1991 Carroll" lines at EMB, not mad at this at all.
