Publish in an antelope

I am publishing in Koedoe. It's the journal of Kruger National Park. There is a lot of value in publishing in small, local journals. Basically, they handed me the dataset from a master's student and asked me to make something of it. It's not very good.
Will this enhance or damage my career? Is there value in publishing not very good things, or should you hold out for bigger and better? I don't know.

Japanese Image Inundation

What is the thing which puts your future?

This is what was written on a guy's T-shirt over an electric guitar image as I took the train from new Chitose Airport on Hokkaido to downtown Sapporo. It was a taste of things to come...
Whereas it is true that many things are written in English in Japan, it's a strange breed of English. I find myself speaking in a command style language, brought about by the bizzarre imperative statement use of english in logos and by my incapability to speak even rudimentary Japanese.

Please enjoy some pictures... I will annotate better later.
I swear. If this link doesn't work, well, poo on you.
