A Quick Check in...

Hey all,

As you may have noticed, there has been a bit of a lack of postage in the Ramenate department of late. As much as I'd like to be crunching on delicious bamboo shoots in a bowl of ramen, it's crunch time on the next chapter of the big D - dissertation that is. So, the majority of my in front of the computer have been devoted to not noodles, but 1920s avant garde literature, which has meant less time to post. Don't worry, I've still been eating plenty of ramen (I had two bowls yesterday!), so there's a pretty big back log of great stuff that will be coming up in due time.

More 3 AM bowls in Kabukicho, ramen at a rural fire festival, Mexican wrestling masks, non-Mexican wrestling masks, overpowering fish aromas, shark fin ramen, Myanmar ramen, the oldest extant ramen in Tokyo, and plenty of pounds of pork bone soup pounded post-beer. Even peanut butter ramen (I am not making this up). You can look forward to all this and more from Ramenate. So, uh, add me to your RSS feed (I do not know what this means), and be sure and keep checking back, since I'll do my best to sneak in some posts when my brain isn't folding in on itself while reading prewar Dadaist poetry. In the mean time, get your daily noodle fix with the rest of my ramen eating crew and their blogs: Go Ramen, Ramen Adventures, and Rameniac. See y'all soon!

Take your time Nate. Maybe you'll find some ramen references in them old timey books of yours.

Glad you're back online. I was missing the vicarious enjoyment of the authentic Japanese item. Looking forward to your future posts.
