On Friday night, my father and I watched the Mariners play the Washington Nationals at Safeco Field. It was awesome, even though the Mariners lost.

Ryo Oyamada, a 24 year old student from Japan, was struck and killed by an NYPD vehicle in a hit & run.  Witnesses say the police car had no lights or sirens on and was going over 70 mph.  The released footage by NYPD was proven to be heavily altered in a cover-up, showing “lights” on the vehicle, when compared to footage from the NY Housing Authority on the same street with the same timestamp. 

On a personal note: I know that this will probably not be shared or reblogged very much, because Asians are not very prominent in American culture.  I understand this, because Asians (like me) are partially at fault for being so passive.  But I am begging you to please consider signing this petition out of human decency.  Ryo was just a student walking home, then struck by a nearly silent police cruiser going at excess speed, and the NYPD covered it up. 

Here is the side-by-side comparison of the released video footage, including updates from the case.  *Edit*  This article contains a link to a graphic video moments after the crash, showing the body of Ryo Oyamada and NY citizens yelling at the police.  Please advise, it is highly disturbing. 

And the following is an excerpt from the petition, which as of now only has 286 signatures.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOST

Here are some pictures of my 3DS XL that I got on Saturday, as well as a comparison between the 3DS game card and the DS game card using a DS game I just bought today.

“Drop the beat, Skrillex!”

But Skrillex doesn’t drop the beat. Instead, he clutches it in his hands, unable to let it go, dooming the fate of the world in his greed.

“Drop the beat, Skrillex,” repeats a desperate Samwise Gamgee, “please.”

Earlier today (yesterday?) I purchased a 3DS XL. I only have Mario Kart 7 so far, but it’s pretty cool.

Camp Bonaparte

It was a fun experience staffing at Camp Bonaparte. I met a lot of really cool people on staff, which helped me through the three weeks of teaching younger boys (around 11- to 13-year-olds) all of the things they needed for their Archery merit badge. (It just occurred to me that I never mentioned what exact position I held at Bonaparte. I was archery director.) I managed to teach ~77 boys the merit badge across all three weeks.

On our spare time, we played games (card and video), watched movies, and talked about various things. On the weekends, we went into town and bought things from the local Walmart. We formed a tight bond, all working together to help Boy Scouts from all over central Washington (and even western Idaho) have a good time. All in all, it was a fun and life-changing experience.
