Gravity Release Me

And don't ever hold me down

Little Round Headed Buffoon

100% of the reason I am writing this post is to justify the beginning of sharing various links and Youtube videos that I enjoy on my Gravity Release Me Facebook Page. So for those who like/follow the GRM FB page, keep your eye’s peeled for the occasional link/video. For those who don’t like/follow me, you should follow me to see if I actually keep to my word. (smooth Jace, smooth.)

The other 100% of the reason I’m writing this post is because I fuckin’ love Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant, and lastly, but by absolutely no means least, Mr. Karl Pilkington. They are hilarious! Allow me to tell you about how I found out about these 3 gentlemen (in chronological order):

Ricky Gervais

I know of Ricky Gervais because I was born and raised on Earth.

Stephen Merchant

I saw a tall, funny, strange-looking guy on Extras once. Then I played Portal 2 and fell in love with Wheatley. Then I looked up the actor who voiced him and finally put a name to that strange-looking face. The face-person was Stephen Merchant.

Karl Pilkington

An Irish friend of mine told me about a TV show called An Idiot Abroad, featuring an elaborate prank organised by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant. The victim of this prank was none other than Karl Pilkington. (more…)

Facebook Page!

Hey all! This next week or so will be extremely busy for me, so it will be hard to write my full length blog posts (although I will look for some time to myself to do so!).

In the mean time, I’ll be updating the Gravity Release Me Facebook Page with various things I’m doing in preparation for my departure to Japan. Once settled, I’ll try put up something a little more comprehensive about my preparations etc. etc.

But for now, if you wanna keep in the loop, head over to the Gravity Release Me Facebook Page.

Mylo Xyloto

So, fun fact about me: I love Coldplay. They are my favourite band on this planet.

Their latest album, Mylo Xyloto, had been released this past week – I had it on pre-order on iTunes and I’ve been listening to it non-stop since I got it.

I love it! It’s brighter, and a tad more electronic that the previous albums but it has Coldplay written all over it; it’s a fresh sound whilst still being exactly what I wanted to hear as a die hard fan. The running favourite songs are Us Against the World, Charlie Brown, Up With the Birds and Hurts Like Heaven.


Gravity Release Me

I used to run, but have since come to the realisation that the person who started that blog in 2008 and the person now running it are 2 very different people – a lot of growing up can be done in 3 years! was also created to focus on my study abroad to Kansai Gaidai University in Osaka, Japan – however my time at Kansai Gaidai has been and gone.  Try as I might to continue blogging at Road2Japan, I can’t help but feel that whatever I do or write is no longer relevant.  There were restrictions/expectations, created by myself and my readers, that at Road2Japan my posts should be about, well, Japan.  There are times where somethings happened, or a thought crosses my mind, or I learn something and think to myself: “I should blog about that! … oh wait, that really doesn’t belong on Road2Japan…”.  (more…)
