Living in Japan in a small $550/month apartment

My Tiny Tokyo Apartment for $550/Month: What living in Japan in a 180 sq ft place is like

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

Living in Japan is awesome, and X-Factor finalist Jason Brock is doing just that in a super tiny apartment in Tokyo (near Shinjuku) that is just 180 square feet (16.7 m2). But even though it’s small, it still gives an American foreigner a comfortable place to live in Japan. Jason only pays ¥60000 (~$550) per month for rent, and for him that’s a great deal!

Jason Brock Gets His Glitter Explosion! - THE X FACTOR USA 2012 // Jason Brock REACTS to Himself!

First Live Shows Performance: X-Factor Finalist Jason Brock Reacts to “Glitter Explosion”

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

I decided to do another reaction video to my own performance on the X-Factor USA 2012 (Season 2). This is the one where I did that J-Lo (Jennifer Lopez) and Pitbull song. It was my first performance on the live shows.

This is also the show where I got my “glitter explosion” that I had talked about on my initial audition. It wasn’t as noticeable as I’d hoped.

Simon Cowell, Britney Spears, Demi Lovato and even L.A. Reid give me their feedback on my performance (and it wasn’t as great as I’d hoped). 

On the plus side, I get to stand between Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez and grab Mario’s butt on national television. lol I also get to run my hand down the body of a HOT Japanese dancer. So it wasn’t all bad.

Why did L.A. Reid choose this song for me? The world may never know. But anyway, I hope you enjoy my reaction.

X-Factor Finalist Explains Why He's not "Famous": Why I’m not Famous – by Jason Brock from the X-Factor

Posted Posted in Uncategorized

Hey Everyone!

People often leave me comments that I should have gotten a record deal or gotten more famous after the X-Factor. Well, it would have been nice, but unfortunately that’s not how it worked out for me. I’m very grateful for what I got, though, and what I have now (people like you watching my video, for example!).

Anyway, this video will explain my experience with fame and why I’m not famous “anymore.” lol I hope you enjoy it. Have a great day!!

10 Japanese Hand Gestures compared with America

Some Interesting Differences: Japanese Hand Gestures: 10 hand symbols compared to the US

Japanese Hand Gestures – they are often different from the hand signs used in other countries. Since Jason Brock is an American, he made this video to compare hand gestures between the United States and Japan. You can see Japanese hand signals for things like “OK” and “bad” in Japan (among many more). Then, you will see the US version of that gesture. It’s an interesting comparison!
