The Gachi Boy pose

On Smelly and my long flight from Seattle to Tokyo, we watched several on-demand movies. The first movie that we both watched was “Gachi Boy: Wresting with a memory“. It was an uplifting and yet somewhat sad movie. Part of the movie was so touching that Smelly and i both got teary eyes. We both enjoyed this movie so much so that we decided to perform the Gachi Boy victory pose whenever we could on this trip.

I love your poses! I haven’t seen this film yet – but it was playing (one day only) at a film festival here in Los Angeles. I couldn’t make it that day – but the write ups on it have been very good.

Thanks! I am pretty sure the movie will make it here as a DVD some day. If not, i may ask my friends in Asia to get me the DVD, which was released in Asia back in September.

I just purchased it on eBay for $10.95. Will check on the quality of the DVD when it arrives.
