And it allowed me closure on the project. The great thing about the social media we have at our finger tips now is that you can create buzz ugh, I hate that word in a lot of different ways. Relentless pimping on your blog, relentless pimping on Facebook, relentless pimping on Twitter, relentless pimping on youtube.
So many different ways! To be completely ignored! Use those ways! My blog, for example. Many many people from all over the world visit my blog randomly to look at pictures of dudes in Speedos. Are all of those people book buyers? Of course not. I got a mention in a Tokyo weekly magazine called Metropolis recently.
I had to give up my classes a couple years ago when the recession hit, but I still sometimes speak Japanese in my dreams, which is free!

But his life desperately needed a shot of adrenaline, and what better way to get one than to leave behind everything he had ever known to move to a tiny, overcrowded island heaving with clever, sensibly proportioned people that make him look fat?
In Tokyo, Tim became a gaijin, an outsider whose stumbling progression through Japanese culture is minutely chronicled in these sixteen howlingly funny stories. Yet despite the steep learning curve and the seemingly constant humiliation, the gaijin from North Carolina gradually begins to find his way.
Whether playing drums on the fly in an otherwise all-Japanese noise band or attempting to keep his English classroom clean when it s invaded by an older female student with a dirty mind, Tim comes to realize that living a meaningful life is about expecting the unexpected.

Tune in Tokyo: The Gaijin Diaries, by Tim Anderson
Seller Inventory Language: English. Brand new Book.
Everyone wants to escape their boring, stagnant lives full of inertia and regret. But so few people actually have the bravery to run, run away from everything and selflessly seek out personal fulfillment in another part of the world where they don't understand anything and won't be expected to.
The world is full of cowards. Tune in Tokyo: The Gaijin Diaries, an irresistible new gay, left-handed, diabetic travel memoir by North Carolina native Tim Anderson, takes a heady ride through the great Japanese megalopolis, bobbing, weaving, and karate kicking its way through the shadowy, dangerous underworld of a Harajuku girl-phobic, viola-playing, kabuki-tastic English conversation instructor on a mission to blast himself out of the creative and professional rut he's in and also do some record shopping.
Tune in Tokyo illuminates the colorful gaijin life of a young-ish American gaywad who, stuck in Ennuiville with no good employment opportunities in his home city of Raleigh, NC, decides to jet across the world and magically make himself more marketable.
He leaves behind his boyfriend, his cat, his CDs, and an increasingly misanthropic existential lifelessness and heads off to a city where the year is and the future is now. Or maybe tomorrow. Tune in Tokyo: The Gaijin Diaries is a collection of fish-out-of-water stories in which the fish flopping around gasping for breath and English-language magazines in the open air of planet Tokyo must slowly but surely learn to breathe, gain his footing, and walk on his own two legs. How else is he going to take himself to the new Uniqlo, use one of those beer vending machines, or buy a Hello Kitty dildo?.
