Hi there
Bryce welcome to Tokyo. You can find mexican food but it's expensive in this country.
Anyway I didn't remember when I watched Mito Komon last time....long long long time ago.


In addition to 60 Minutes and Tonight Show, there's also The Simpsons. I believe it's the longest-running cartoon show at over 18 years. I'm also 18 years old. So, The Simpsons has been on as long as I have been alive!


In the U.S., the longest-running show I can recall is the news magazine "60 Minutes," which has been on since 1968. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/60_Minutes

A late-night talk show, "The Tonight Show," has technically been on longer, since 1954. But its various hosts over the years -- Steve Allen, Jack Paar, Johnny Carson, and Jay Leno -- have each given this show such a different look and feel that it hardly seems like the same program. I haven't watched it much since Carson left in 1992. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Tonight_Show


The "in English" page was interesting...

I liked how 「頭が高い、控えおろう」turns into "Bow your heads, down your knees."

That's so different!

I think a better translation would be to keep the original feel and say something like: "Your heads are held high, bow them now!"

Like always, enjoyed your blog.
