Well troops, here I am sitting on a hospital bed (with no sheets) on the 2nd to last day of 'The Stop Smoking Trial' which is a clinical trial to test a new drug that aims to stop the filthy habit? I'd like to say that I have offered my physical services all in the name of science and of course to kick the habit but the truth of the matter is in the fat check i'll will receive when I return on tuesday to reap the reward.

The Clinic

Don't get me wrong though, I'm all for the stop smoking thing and it's obvious health benefits but at the minute, the funds to edit my current film 'Night Walker' so I can move into post production next month, wins hands down! You see the cash that I get from whoring my body should be significant enough to pay some tax bills (?) and build an editing studio in our (Kaori & I) brand new mansion apartment, which let me just say is one of the best things that's happened to me since my move to Japan (7 years ago).

The apartment is a 2LDK with service room (so more like a 3LDK actually), has a size of 75 metres squared (huge by Tokyo standards) and overlooks the city and train lines in both directions (great view) on the 12th floor of a complex that is a mere 2mins from the train station. If it sounds like I'm bragging, I am, so there; who says crime doesn't pay? Hu hu hu, ha ha ha... wooooh yeh!
For more pics of the abode click on the snap below.

Here is the view overlooking the station complex from new apartment.

So now it's time to accumulate more urine have a bedtime smoke and watch a movie (Memoirs of a Geisha)... Yes, it's a tough life here in the 'clinic of truth'. Over and out...
