The end of an era has arrived. I can’t believe how something I’ve done for more than a third of my life is over. Yesterday was my final performance as a member of a Marching Band. I’m really going to miss it.

Black Thunder is a Japanese chocolate bar that hopes to debut in the U.S. this October 9th.

Imagine taking an Oreo, milk’s famous lover, and crumbling it into tiny chucks, then bathing those crumbly bits in sweet milk chocolate. BOOM!! This is the legendary Japanese chocolate bar known as Black Thunder! Words fail to describe the epic deliciousness of this hidden Japanese treasure. You may think I’m overreacting, but on October 9th, America will know the power of Black Thunder!

The infamous chocolate bar first struck in Toyohashi city. Created by the Yuraku Confectionery Company in 1994, it originally targeted college students living in the Chubo and Kanto regions of Japan (i.e. Tokyo, Yokohama, Toyohashi). The selling point stemmed from the deliciousness and cheap price of the bar. One bar sold at around 30 yen which is about 30 cents, and continues to sell at this price today.Because of the easy access and low prices, college students flocked to indulge on what would slowly become a nation wide obsession.

This week, Koei Tecmo’s tribute to one of Nintendo’s greatest franchises The Legend of Zelda will finally be released for sale in North America. While Japan enjoyed their chance to hack and slash bokoblins in Hyrule Field for over a month now, soon it will be our turn. But you may be asking yourself “why should I even look at this game let alone play it.” For those questioners and doubters out there, I give you a slap in the face in the form of ten reasons. You’re welcome, North America.

So, welcome to Denvoros. This is, what you might call, a nerdy blog. But, we promise it isn’t your standard nerdy blog. We’re getting things set up here, so please pardon the dust.

It is so great to be here today. It is so great to be back at average altitudes. To get to the new mission of Peru Huancayo, you either fly for 45 minutes in a small plane, or you travel by bus for 8-9 hours up and down windy roads at crazy altitudes. The first time I left Lima for my first area in the jungle was one of the craziest road trips I ever took. At one point in the trip, you go through the Ticlio Pass, as they call it, at over 15,800 feet. Starting my mission made me as white as a ghost, but not from fear. From lack of oxygen. I hope that today its reverse altitude sickness.
