Robo-Geisha is one crazy movie +

Bit NSFW. Well, I’ve never been one to shy away from crazy Japanese cult movies. As a matter of fact, I didn’t think I would find one that topped Tokyo Gore Police. Silly me. Leave it to the minds that created Machine Girl and Tokyo Gore Police to team up and create this over the […]

The bathroom in many homes is a very lonely room. You only visit it when you need something, and not for the pleasant atmosphere the room provides. So is it really hard to believe that the lonely bathrooms around the world holds a deep seated grudge for the humans that use it? I think not. […]

Kids vs Zombies +

So, Andrea subliminally tricked me into purchasing Left 4 Dead on Steam, and I have been enjoying playing it for the past few days now. Funnily enough, I have to play Louis everytime I play online because well… my real name is Louis and I’m African-American. You may be wondering what zombies have to do […]

Naoto Fukasawa’s Fruit Juice +

They say that the way food or drinks look plays a major influence on how well we like it. I would have to agree. These are some awesome fruit juice packaging from Industrial designer Naoto Fukasawa. Looking at the strawberry box, it looks as if the packaging may even feel like the specific fruit it […]

For about 80 years now, inside the Glico caramel candy boxes there is a small toy called “Omake of Glico” (Small gift of Glico). It started off as little toys kids would […]

Space Invaders Bank +

Tomy has done it again. If you are old enough to remember space invaders, this functioning bank will trigger your nostalgia reflex. Personally I remember the game, but I’m too young to remember the actual table. We did have a functioning Atari when I was a child though. Ah. Memories.

Creepy crawling Japanese salaryman +

What would you do if you saw this salaryman crawling on the ground, in the middle of downtown?

Actually, this crawling man is a piece of performance art by Momoyo Torimitsu. But what is the message being sent? Torimitsu says the robot represents the Asian economic crash, and the rigid “salaryman” culture in Japan. The crawling motion is synonymous with the crawling a soldier does in a battlefield. So in a sense, salaryman in Japan are like corporate soldiers, willing to put up with whatever hardships that arises for the good of the company.

Thanks for the tip Reynaldo!

    I couldn’t vote because you didn’t include the “I would tie myself to his leg with my necktie and let him drag me home while I slept off the effects of my after-work bender” option.

    But, I’ve seen plenty of salarymen in worse condition here in Tokyo, so I don’t think Ms. Torimitsu is making such a radical statement.
