“Do You Believe in Destiny?”

This was a bizarre question that this one Japanese lady asked me when I was at the Hard Rock Cafe in Roppongi/Tokyo my first time. I believe it was the winter of 1999, early December and it was my first major vacation away from the US. I stayed at a backpacker’s lodge called the New Koyo Inn in a spot in Minowa, experiencing the adventure of Tokyo life (and hardships). I can’t remember how or why I was in Roppongi that night nor how I even managed to discover the Hard Rock Cafe there since I wasn’t really into site seeing at that point in time.

Megan is Missing Review

Some sadistic jerk in from one of the Twitch streams I subscribe to made a suggestion to check out Megan Is Missing because the streamer enjoys “fuck up things.” Since I haven’t seen a movie in a while (at least a non-repeat), I decided to hang out and give this thing a try. If you don’t want to take a bazooka and blow your head off after seeing this piece of shit, then you must be far more fucked up than everyone involved in this production and the real events.
