In November 2017, I was able to visit New York with Mari Yokoi.  We stayed at the Ace Hotel in Manhattan.  It was quite nice.

Though we only stayed at the Ace Hotel, we did check out a lot of different hotel lobbies.  Mari took me to my first Broadway Show, ‘Miss Saigon.’  As well, we were able to see my friend Frank Corva and have dinner with him at a great pizza restaurant.

Im November 2017 konnte ich mit Mari Yokoi New York besuchen. Wir waren im Ace Hotel in Manhattan. Es war sehr nett.

Obwohl wir nur im Ace Hotel waren, haben wir viele verschiedene Hotel-Lobbys besucht. Mari nahm mich zu meiner ersten Broadway-Show mit, Miss Saigon. Außerdem konnten wir meinen Freund Frank Corva sehen und mit ihm in einem tollen Pizzarestaurant zu Abend essen.

201711月、横井麻里とニューヨークを訪問することができました。私たちはマンハッタンのエースホテルに泊まりました。それはかなり素晴らしかったです。

私たちはエースホテルに泊まっただけですが、私たちは多くの異なるホテルのロビーをチェックしました。麻里は最初のブロードウェイショー「Miss Saigon」に連れて行った。同様に、私は友人Frank Corvaを見て、素晴らしいピザレストランで彼と夕食を取ることができました。

New York - November 2017 - At Miss Siagon on Broadway with Mari Yokoi 横井麻里
The show is about to start. My first time to see a Broadway show, and my first time to really see Miss Saigon. I remember the images I saw in books when I was a little boy.  People hanging onto the helicopters as they took off from the American embassy.  The actual pictures, not this storybook telling that tries to give many rich people a feeling of “they care” simply because they show up for the musical.  Or maybe they just blatantly don’t care like the person next to me.  I cried when I saw the images as a boy, and I cried again in the theatre thinking of that time – when I started to see what society is – this disgusting society and the disgusting people who support it. This world is madness, mentally deformed.  All captured in the stupidity of caring about the minutiae of one’s appearance without a care of the real physical suffering of so many people/animals in so many places.  The stupidity and ugliness of spending money on one’s fingernails while people die from starvation or massive violence.  Hey!  Maybe set up a foundation to give away free books of a cuddly little feel-good story promoting your name is all a rich piece of shit needs to do to feel good about their self.  Hmm…  No.
