The 88th Academy Awards the 2016 Oscars

The stage is set. The red carpet is out. It is time for the 2016 Academy Awards being hosted by Chris Rock. Here are some images of what Hollywood looks like for the stars to start showing up.  I took different photos from different perspectives to give a good view of what Hollywood and Hollywood Boulevard looks like in preparation for the 88th Academy Awards, the 2016 Oscars.  I really tried to focus on visually letting you know what it is like to walk around and see the pageantry of the Oscars from different angles and different points of view as if you were there.

The Oscars 2016 第88回アカデミー授賞式

今年のホストはクリス・ロックです。
最多ノミネート作品は、レオナルド・ディカプリオ主演の「The Revenant レヴェナント」で、
次に多かったのが日本でも大ヒットした「マッドマックス怒りのデス・ロード」です。
ディカプリオは初オスカーを手にするかが注目されていますね。

長編アニメーション部門で「思い出マーニー」がノミネートされていますね。
受賞すれば千と千尋の神隠し以来の快挙だそうです。

大ファンという訳ではないし詳しくもないのですが、
なぜかアカデミー授賞式前夜に2年連続で訪れてしまったハリウッド。
折角なので写真を撮ってきました。授賞式準備のためにスタッフが働いていました。
去年よりあまり飾り付けされていない印象です。相変わらず人は沢山いました。

2016 Academy Awards Man of the Hour

thekumachan_2016_Oscars-1409Here is the man of the hour.

What Part of Your Body Goes to Heaven First?

The nun teaching Sunday school was speaking to her class one morning and she asked the question, ‘When you die and go to Heaven which part of your body goes first?’

Suzy raised her hand and said, ‘I think it’s your hands.’ ‘Why do you think it’s your hands, Suzy?’ Suzy replied: ‘Because when you pray, you hold your hands together in front of you and God just takes your hands first.’ What a wonderful answer!’, the nun said.

Little Johnny raised his hand and said, ‘Sister, I think it’s your feet.’ The nun looked at him with the strangest look on her face. ‘Now, Johnny , why do you think it would be your feet?’ Johnny said: ‘Well, I walked past Mom and Dad’s bedroom the other night. Mom had her legs up in the air and she was saying: ‘Oh God! I’m coming!’ If Dad hadn’t pinned her down, I reckon we’d have lost
her.

The nun had to leave the room.

Circus Vargas

The circus has officially come to town. Today as I was driving down the road I saw a circus tent setup with semi trucks parked nearby. Here are a couple photos.

A Scouse Tale

A man met a beautiful blonde lady and decided he wanted to marry her right away. She said, ‘But we don’t know anything about each other.’
 
He said, ‘That’s all right, we’ll learn about each other as we go along.’
 
So she agreed, they were soon married, and off they went on a honeymoon at a very nice resort.
 
One morning they were lying by the pool, when he got up off of his towel, climbed up to the 10 meter board and did a two and a half tuck, followed by three rotations in the pike position, at which point he straightened out and cut the water like a knife. After a few more demonstrations, he came back and lay down on the towel.
 
She said, ‘That was incredible!’
 
He said, ‘I used to be an Olympic diving champion. You see, I told you we’d learn more about each other as we went along.’
 
So she got up, jumped in the pool and started doing lengths. After seventy-five lengths she climbed out of the pool, lay down on her towel and was hardly out of breath.
 
He said, ‘That was incredible! Were you an Olympic endurance swimmer?’
 
‘No,’ she said, ‘I was a prostitute in Liverpool but I worked both sides of the Mersey.

There’s Something You Don’t See Everyday

thekumachan_dinosaur-1

Today as I was driving home from work, I was stopped at a red light and I looked over and saw a dinosaur tied up in the back of a pickup truck. I thought to myself, “There’s something you don’t see everyday.” Then I took a quick photo and drove home.

「ジュリアンのパイは美味しいよ〜」との噂を聞いたので行ってみた。山側へドライブして雪が見たかったというのもある。勝手にジュリアンというレストランがあるのだと思っていた。着いてみたら多くの観光客が各レストランの前に並んでいた。駐車するのも一苦労だった。ジュリアンは小さな町で、レストラン・ホテル・お土産やさんが連なっており、ちょっとした観光地だった。パイ屋さんも数件あったが、JULIAN PIE COMPANYというベタな名前の長蛇の列に並んでみた。数種類のパイとクッキー、マフィンやドーナッツ等があった。$1.95の追加料金でホイップクリーム、アイスクリーム、シナモンソース、キャラメル等のトッピングも可能。コーヒーとホットココアの飲み物があり、水は無料だった。小さい店内で正面入り口前と裏にちょっとしたテラス席があり、そこで食べられるようになっていた。スライスとホールの購入レジが分かれていたので、スライスの方に並んだ。ホームメイド・アップルパイにした。一切れが大きくてThe American Pieでビックした。$3.50だった。味は甘さ控えめ。りんごの酸っぱさも適度にあり、おばあちゃんの手作り感満載で噂通りに美味しかった。気に入ったのでホールでも購入($14.95)。冷蔵庫で保存して1週間。食べる前にレンジで軽く温めてアイスを載せると美味しさが増した。普段パイを食べない娘も気に入って毎日のおやつになった。ジュリアンのレストランも美味しいと高評価だったので、機会があれば今度は食事をしに行ってみたい。

We heard ” The pie of Julian is delicious!”  We wanted to see snow to mountain side too. so we went to Julian.
I thought that there was a restaurant called Julian. But Julian is a small town and good sight-seeing spot. They have many restaurant and hotel and Souvenir shop. Many tourists lined up in front of each restaurant when we arrived.
We had a hard time parking.
A pie shop was several, we lined up in the long line of the name called JULIAN PIE COMPANY. They have Many kinds of pies and cookie & muffin. Pie topping is whip cream and ice cream and cinnamon sauce and caramel with an additional charge ($1.95).
Drink menu is coffee and hot cocoa, and the water was free. The shop is small. However, there is a terrace seat in front and behind a shop. A purchase cash register of the slice was different from a hall. We lined up toward the slice.

I had a homemade apple pie. One slice was big. It was $3.50. The taste is a sweetness reserve. The sourness of the apple was moderate, too and it was full of the handmade feelings of grandmother and was delicious on a rumor street. I bought it in the hall ($14.95). I save it in the refrigerator one week. When I warmed pie before eating. my daughter usually did not eat pie.but she want to eat it every day for a snack. The restaurant of Julian was a high recommend on Yelp. If there is an opportunity, I want to go to the restaurant too.

Little Larry the Fighter Pilot

A teacher asks the kids in her 3rd grade class: “What do you want to be when you grow up?”

Little Larry says: “I wanna start out as a Fighter Pilot, then be a billionaire, go to the most expensive clubs, find me the finest whore, give her a Ferrari worth over a million bucks, an apartment in Casablanca a mansion in Paris, a jet to travel throughout Europe, an Infinite Visa Card, and all the while banging her like a loose screen door in a hurricane.”

The teacher, shocked and not knowing what to do with this horrible response from little Larry, decides not to acknowledge what he said and simply tries to continue with the lesson.

“And how about you, Sarah?”

“I wanna be Larry’s whore.”

Logical Law Student

A young law student, having failed his Law exam, goes up to his crusty old professor, who is renowned for his razor-sharp legal mind.

Student: “Sir, do you really understand everything about this subject?”

Professor: “Actually, I probably do. Otherwise I wouldn’t be a professor, would I?”

Student: “Okay. So I’d like to ask you a question. If you can give me the correct answer, I will accept my grade as it is. If you can’t give me the correct answer, however, you’ll give me an ‘A’.

Professor: “Hmmmm, all right. So what’s the question?”

Student: “What is legal but not logical, logical but not legal, and neither logical nor legal?”
The professor wracks his famous brain, but just can’t crack the answer. Finally he gives up and changes the student‘s failing mark into an ‘A’ as agreed, and the student goes away, very pleased.

The professor continues to wrack his brain over the question all afternoon, but still can’t get the answer. Finally he calls in a group of his brightest students and tells them he has a really, really tough question to answer . . . “What is legal but not logical, logical but not legal, and neither logical nor legal?”

To the professor’s surprise (and embarrassment), all the students immediately raise their hands.

“All right” says the professor, and asks his favorite student to answer . . .

“It’s quite easy, sir,” says the student. “You see, you are 75 years old and married to a 30-year old woman, which is legal, but not logical. Your wife has a 22-year old lover, which is logical, but not legal. And your wife‘s lover failed his exam, but you’ve just given him an ‘A’, which is neither legal, nor logical.”

Carolina Panthers TopCat Cheerleaders

In preparation for the National Football League Super Bowl 50 where the Carolina Panthers will be taking on the Denver Bronco’s I decided to share the only stuff I have of either team. These videos are of the Carolina Panthers cheerleaders the TopCats when they came to military installations in the Pacific. These videos were taken on February 4th, 2012. It was a real pleasure to meet these lovely ladies and to actually see them in action.

Suicide is Not the Answer

I was in Japan, between July 2008 – November 2014, there was a Captain in the Army that was stationed there during the same time. One year he brought his mother to the Christmas party where I had cooked Kalua pork. He was a nice guy, I never had any problems with him. He rode a little moped around the base and work some whacky shirts. We would communicate, share jokes through e-mail, and sometimes at work I would go over to his desk and talk with him for a while. You know nothing close, but somebody I knew from work and stayed in touch with. He was forced out of the United States Army as he was passed over for promotion a couple of times. I guess he really loved being in the Army because the news hit him pretty hard. After he got out he moved to San Diego and we stayed in touch. He would write to me and tell me how he’s surfing and he bought his mother a house in Las Vegas, he met a girl, etc. January 15th, 2014 I wrote him to let him know that I got my server working again since my server crashed and was down for a short term. I didn’t get a response back. So I just thought maybe he was traveling or busy. Then on January 20th, 2014 I received an e-mail from his mother telling me that Chris had committed suicide on January 18th. It was only 3 days after my last e-mail. In her letter she asked for me to be a conduit to get the word to others in the US Army who knew Chris. When I went into work and shared the news with others it was pretty sad. I couldn’t believe that somebody who was so happy was so devastated by being forced out of the Army that he took his own life.

This is what eats at me to this day. Six months after Chris committed suicide I received an assignment to San Diego, California. I actually arrived in San Diego in November of 2014. I’ve been here for a year and don’t know many people. I don’t really go out much unless it is to work or with my family. If Chris hadn’t committed suicide we would be able to hang out, we could check out the surf locations, or no matter what it was I’m sure we would have good times. It always makes me wonder about what could have been or what he would be doing today. Who knows? He certainly is missed. R.I.P. Captain Christopher Atencio.

Cowboy: “Nah.. She’s purty good lookin’…..”

I was talking to a girl in the bar last night. She said, “If you lost a few pounds, had a shave and got your hair cut, you’d look all right.”
I said, “If I did that, I’d be talking to your friends over there instead of you.”

I was telling a girl in the pub about my ability to guess what day a woman was born just by feeling her boobs.
“Really” she said, “Go on then…try.”
After about thirty seconds of fondling she began to lose patience and said, “Come on, what day was I born?”
I said, “Yesterday.”

I got caught taking a pee in the swimming pool today. The lifeguard shouted at me so loud, I nearly fell in.

I went to the pub last night and saw a FAT chick dancing on a table. I said, “Good legs.”
The girl giggled and said, “Do you really think so.”
I said, “Definitely! Most tables would have collapsed by now.”

Study: Smelling Farts May Be Good For Your Health

The next time someone in your office, room or space lets out a “silent but deadly” emission, maybe you should thank them. A new study at the University of Exeter in England suggests that exposure to hydrogen sulfide — a.k.a. what your body produces as bacteria breaks down food, causing gas — could prevent mitochondria damage. Yep, the implication is what you’re thinking: People are taking the research to mean that smelling farts could prevent disease and even cancer.

The study, published in the Medicinal Chemistry Communications journal, found that hydrogen sulfide gas in rotten eggs and flatulence could be a key factor in treating diseases.

“Although hydrogen sulfide gas is well known as a pungent, foul-smelling gas in rotten eggs and flatulence, it is naturally produced in the body and could in fact be a healthcare hero with significant implications for future therapies for a variety of diseases,” Dr. Mark Wood, a professor at the University of Exeter, said in a statement.

While hydrogen sulfide gas is harmful in large doses, the study suggests that “a whiff here and there has the power to reduce risks of cancer, strokes, heart attacks, arthritis, and dementia by preserving mitochondria,” Time reports.

Dr. Matt Whiteman, a University of Exeter professor who worked on the study, said in a statement that researchers are even replicating the natural gas in a new compound, AP39, to reap its health benefits. The scientists are delivering “very small amounts” of AP39 directly into mitochondrial cells to repair damage, which “could hold the key to future therapies,” the university’s statement reveals.

You’ll have to decide for yourself, though, whether exposure to hydrogen sulfide in flatulence is worth the potential health benefits.
