Product Description

75% off for 1 week only!

What happens when you send an innocent young gaijin into a Japanese hot spring for his first terrifying experience of public nudity?

What happens when you send an Australian DJ on a tour of South America?

Join Kriece as he encounters every potential mishap you could imagine. See him -

- Visit Japan's oldest hot spring in a state of pure terror as he is forced to go publicly nude for the first time in his eventful life

- Luxuriate in a USD$5 per night hotel in Bolivia

- DJ at the Creamfields festival in Argentina

- Have to negotiate his way out of a sticky situation in Bangkok

- Snowboard in Whistler then ski in Switzerland - all in the same week, without ever having tried either before and with only his naturally low centre of gravity to assist him.

Kriece is perhaps best known for his album collaboration with noted spiritual guru Ram Dass ("Cosmix") and his remix of Aphex Twin's "Windowlicker". However, as well as his time spent travelling the world as a touring DJ, he has also lived in Japan and worked in international commodity trade. As a fiction author, Kriece recently released "The Munchies" under his "Richard Carnegie" alias.

HASH(0x9a535600) out of 5 stars Awesome stories Jan. 9 2013
By NMoore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This whole book is pretty funny, however the Japanese Hot Spring story had me with tears streaming down my face in hysterics. One of the funniest stories I have read full stop. The book ended suddenly however so would love to see the author add some more stories. Here's hoping for the second edition...

HASH(0x98e4d3a8) out of 5 stars Naked men, raves, high finance. What else could you ask for? April 26 2014
By Whistlers Mom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Although this book is uneven, I HAVE to give it 5 stars because the opening story is some of the best humor writing I've had the pleasure to read. The author is an Aussie whose careers in marketing, as a DJ, and in the finance industry have taken him all over the world. He's a keen observer, and (typical of his countrymen) loves the absurd and the outlandish.

The book opens with his experiences in a "dogo onsen" (public bath) while an exchange student in Japan in 1995. This particular establishment has been open since 1894 and some of the customers appear to have been there the whole time. DOOOOOOOOOOON'T LOOK!!!!

The remaining chapters deal with his travels in Asia, Europe, and North and South America as a rave and club DJ and then as a commodities trader. His success in two wildly different fields is an indication that he's enough off-center to be a very entertaining guy. And so he is. This book is worth your time.

HASH(0x98e52168) out of 5 stars Titillating title, but a travel guide at heart April 28 2013
By Phoenix59 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is a memoir by the well known Australian DJ and producer Kriece, and includes stories of his experiences that he wrote as he traveled all over the planet to DJ at some of the world's most prestigious dance clubs. As such, you might imagine that it would be filled with wild tales of sex, drugs, and techno.

I might have known that the tale referenced in the title wouldn't be as lurid as one might think; after all, Japan is famous for its hot baths which have nothing to do with geishas, wild partying or a happy ending. However, when he continues to describe his world travels and the most interesting thing he describes is how the room service was in a particular hotel in Paris, or the disposition of the breakfast attendant at his hotel in La Paz, it shows that you can't always judge a book by its cover.

Essentially, what DJ Kriece has written is a travel guide along the lines of what one might expect from the likes of Frommer's or Lonely Planet. He even includes an appendix with lists of pros and cons about all the different hotels he mentions, most of which are in Europe, South America, and other locales that I will never have the chance to see,

On the upside, it is generally well written, without many of the pitfalls that are often found in CreateSpace/Kindle self-published books such as severe spelling and punctuation errors. It's not free of issues, but what errors there were were violations of Strunk & White rules rather than the often-seen their/there/they're, its/it's and your/you're errors that are like a knife in the gut of this proud Grammar Nazi.

So long as one does not approach the book expecting the club DJ's version of Steven Tyler's "Does The Noise In My Head Bother You?" it should prove an enjoyable, if rather short (a mere 96 pages!) read.

HASH(0x98cefd38) out of 5 stars Kriece is a pretty funny bloke June 27 2013
By J. K. Kelley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
While in theory we ought not to let cultural preconceived notions inform our reading, in reality, they always do. Thus if I am told there's a book by an Australian DJ about being naked in a Japanese bath, I'm expecting some fairly wacky and self-deprecating stories based on the reputations of DJs and Australians for travel extroversion and lack of inhibition. Kriece lives up well to those expectations.

The strongest point of the book is that most of his jokes are hilarious. I was reading it while my physical therapist iced down my knees after an hour of interrogation, and I had to try to stuff back the laughter so as not to be the idiot on the corner bed laughing at humor shared with no one else. Not only are the adventures and misadventures good stuff, the basic insight into his lines of work has appeal.

I wish it were longer; I think there's a full-size book in here. However, the author has also kept the price well within reason, so in terms of value it's a winner. There isn't enough good comic travel writing available to buy; Tim Cahill has scaled back, and Tony Horwitz and that Dutch guy who traveled around the Pacific Rim can't put out books often enough to satisfy the jones. If you like humorous and goofy travel adventures delivered in Australian style, you're going to like Kriece.

HASH(0x989dc234) out of 5 stars Hilarious Dec 24 2014

The way this is written is very unexpectedly humorous. The youthful adventures are a glimpse into a teenage boy's thoughts.
