first post!

Welcome to my blog. This is actually the second blog I've written, the first being aikidointokyo.blogspot.com , which documented my days training Aikido and living in Tokyo in January 2006.

About me:
On monday, I graduated from college. In that former life, I was an East Asian Studies Major at Oberlin College. In that field, I studied Japanese as well as East Asian religion, especially Buddhism, and especially-especially, Zen Buddhism. My interest in East Asian Studies was piqued by Aikido, a modern Japanese martial art, in which attained shodan (first-degree black belt) in at the beginning of last month.

On top of that, I was a sound engineer for my four years at Oberlin. My main experience comes from working as a live sound engineer at Oberlin, mixing concerts and events that came through. Bela Fleck, David Sedaris, Tibetan Gyuto Monks, Peaches, The Rapture, Supersystem, Xiu Xiu, Girl Talk, Nancy Dye, dancerockinfinity, Talib Kweli -- Mixed them all at Oberlin. Man what a sweet gig.

Anyway, this is sounding a little too much like a cover letter. And probably most people reading this already know me, but if you don't here's the rundown:
  • Oberlin College
  • Japan
  • Zen Buddhism
  • Aikido
  • Sound Engineering
  • Music
  • Video Games
  • Friends
  • Life after College
Keep reading, cause I'll keep writing.

Peace,
Tommy

I demand a sacrifice of lulz. And quite possibly a showing of the movie "Bloodsport".
