Conveyor Belt Sushi

I wasn’t going to put this one out because the battery died before I could finish it, but what the heck. It’s not like this is Neilson ratings week or anything.

Tony provides the Japanese Phrase of the Day:

Hayaku-shite kure nai?
“Would you please hurry the #$%! up?”

The “#$%!” part isn’t actually expressed in a specific word. It’s in the tone. He certainly didn’t learn that attitude from me.

Were you hoping for a podcast instead of a video? Actually, I’ve been practicing, but I haven’t recorded anything I feel like releasing. But if you really want to hear something and you don’t care if it’s not that great, you can download the file “EXMIC057.MP3” from this directory:

I haven’t listened to it. If you don’t like it, trash it and listen to something else. On the plus side, it has lots of subway noises because I didn’t hit the stop button while I was on the subway.

And about the contest: I’m not about to ask anyone to vote for me every day for two weeks. That’s plain absurd. I’m just happy I was nomiated.

  1. Haha! Once again my 10 year old and I were tuning in together. We listened to your aborted podcast and watched your vidcast. We were laughing when you read one of my posts during your podcast (one odd thing, it sounded like someone else’s message about 7-11s got tacked onto it), and you mentioned not dropping the “F-bomb” in front of kids. Sure enough at the end you fired off 2 F-bombs! Fortunately or unfortunately my son puts up with my slips all the time, and so far he’s been able to maintain his excellent manners. We got another chuckle out of it. Now we’re left craving conveyor belt sushi! Thanks again for sharing.

  2. I’ve been using this expression on my Japanese girlfriend(oops – now wife) and she insistes it doesn’t make any sense… ?
