Greetings from Japan! I was born and raised in Michigan where I started studying Japanese in high school. I moved to Japan in 2005 and I have no intention of returning to America except to visit. I love America, but I love Japan.

I'm into photography and Japanese calligraphy when I have the time. I play the bass guitar regularly though I am still a beginner.

comment When can you pluralize uncountable nouns?
I see how the context makes the difference as to whether a noun in countable or not, but "organic matters" still sounds wrong to me... Thanks for the info.

comment What is the term for those cylindrical metal or plastic protrusions?
@Mitch Indeed, they were referred to as "locating pins." But that wasn't what I was looking for. These are probably called pins because of their push pin-like shape, where I was looking for a straight cylinder shape.

Thanks for your answer. I added a picture of my own to clarify what kind of mount I was asking about.

@Roaring Fish How could I not come across that after an hour of searching... If I could accept a comment as an answer, I would. That brought up the images I needed in Google. Thank you

comment Is a lengthy combination of words with hyphens like “the worst not-technically-in-a-recession year in American history” a new fashion of writing?
+1 The New York Times is not suddenly making a major mistake that happened to slip through their proofreading process. This is clearly an example of knowing the rules of writing well enough to know when and how to break them for effect. Yoichi, please see this article about breaking the rules of grammar (though it is not specifically about hyphen usage).
