The Tokyo Light Saber Techno Ballet

This was from a monthly dance event in Tokyo called Tokyo Decadance where people dress in wild outfits and such.

This guy wore a combination of Predator and Optimus Prime which he called Preda-Prime. He had two light sabers which he swung around the dance floor.

The music is by Koko T.:

Tokyo Youtube Gathering at a Tokyo Bar

Tokyo Youtube Gathering at a Hub Pub in Shibuya courtesy of Tokyo Cooney. We talk about Tokyo, Youtube, and our lives which are often intertwined.

This is the second half of the Tokyo Youtube Hanami Gathering on March 30, 2008. I missed the first part with the hanami at Yoyogi Park and the last part at Karaoke. I’m bummed about missing the first part but thankful for missing the last part.

I decided to resurrect my old intro – The Roving Ronin Report – which I haven’t used in half-a-year. I always change up the scenes in the middle which different clips of a variety of things.

The following Japan Youtubers gave commentary in the video:

There might be a few more Youtubers in the background that I don’t know about so scan closely.
