吾輩は猫である is also one of my Burnout Syndromes’ song! 🙂 I’m really enjoying your site.
Oh my goodness!!!! I promise I can speak proper English! ? My first comment and it is full of errors. ごめんなさい。Sometimes my brain works faster then my fingers and I don’t notice mistakes until it’s too late. 吾輩は猫である is one of my favorite songs from Burnout Syndromes.
It happens to the best of us.:) I had never heard of that group, but the song is very nice: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=skBbNCx_Irw
Thanks for sharing!
Oh, wow. Since I have access to all previous issues now, thought I’d traverse through and intersperse reading the latest issues with checking out the oldest ones. It’s interesting to see how they have developed but were just as helpful and interesting even from the start. Usually when you get into something and look back at “the old stuff” it’s a disappointment at how not-so-cool they used to be. This is a glorious exception. Hooray for Makoto!! 😀
Thanks! I’m glad it still holds up. A lot has changed and we are including much more now (the first few issues were only in PDF–I later went back and added the other formats), but we really haven’t changed the structure radically. I’ve been thinking of doing a full revision of the format. If you have any ideas for what works or what doesn’t, please let me know.
Personally I loved the oyaji gyagu and can’t wait for the opportunity to make use of them, but do understand that a lot of people might not feel the same about having them included regularly. [There’s one about smashing evil watermelons at the beach just itching to be written. HA!]
I don’t really have any suggestions as to what doesn’t work- the way so much is learned in a digestible way that is easy to remember [and without feeling like “a lesson”] is my favorite thing so as long as that remains, you will have one ureshii saru anata no tenohira naka ni. ^_^
[…..And I must get a kana keyboard setting so I can stop writing in romaji. NOmaji!]
Haha. I have some おやじギャグ here: https://thejapanesepage.com/%e3%81%8a%e3%82%84%e3%81%98%e3%82%ae%e3%83%a3%e3%82%b0-old-mans-flat-jokes-in-japanese/
At some point, I’ll create a Makoto+ page with more.
