Yakuza New Years

I hope I don't get in trouble with them for posting this one, but I spent the turning over of the year surrounded by local gangsters at a bar they own while singing karaoke. Unlike Western shady types, they can be pretty amiable and fun to hang out with. And the boss sings wicked awesome, I kid you not.

I have just enough しぶい (shubui, old-school) chops to hold my own at the mic.



This guy is not the boss, but he has a sweet demon tattoo. If I ever get one, it'll be this style.
