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 […]

A 3 foot horror story +

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. […]

A real Hello Kitty +

If you are reading this website right now, I would find it very hard for you to not know what Hello Kitty is. One could argue that it is one of the most well known Japanese brands right up there with Honda and Sony. This video has nothing to do with Hello Kitty other than […]

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 […]

Ichi the Killer Bento +

Gore movies are one of my many favorites from Japan. The last one I watched was Tokyo Gore Police a few months ago. What can I say about that besides it was unbelievably gory… As for the actual story, I think I could of written something better as weekend homework in the 4th grade. But […]

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 […]

Mini Nikon SLR in Japanese candy +

Gilco is one of Japan’s oldest candy companies, and is home to the popular Glico caramel candy as well as the legendary Pocky. 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├é┬ánostalgia├é┬áreflex. 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.

friday five! +

1. What was your first Halloween costume?
i think my first halloween costume… that i remember anyways… was the costume that michael jackson wore in the video thriller… you remember the one.

2. What was your best costume and why?
my best costume… was maybe when i was like in 4th grade, and lived in cuba. i dressed up like michaelangelo from the ninja turtles. i had been wanting that costume for ages because it was a full makeup mask that required you putting on the big cheeks like the ninja turtles, and with makeup, it looked as if it was really part of your skin. my mom went through alot putting all that green stuff on my face, but it was worth it!

3. Did you ever play a trick on someone who didn’t give you a treat?
nope, was never into the trick part of halloween. i was in it for the candy!

4. Do you have any Halloween traditions? (ie: Family pumpkin carving, special dinner before trick or treating, etc.)
my family is never in the holiday spirt. we do nothing special for halloween or christmas (besides gifts). my mom and her bf always go to church that night, but the rest of us stay @ home. for thanksgiving, we do the turkey thing… that is if we’re at home. last thanksgiving, i spent it by myself *sigh*.

5. Share your favorite scary story…real or legend!
hmm, scary store or legend. well in 3rd grade, i had this really old teacher. looking back on it, i think she may have been going into denial. but she used to tell us stories of ghosts living in her home. she used to live in england, and told of this family that became poor, and was without electicity for xmas. previously someone had died in their house. so that christmas, on thier TV, a face of a lady showed up. and it was impossible because they had no electricity. the newspaper came and took photos of the TV, and the published it in a newspaper. she brought in the yellow, faded, dated newspaper article for us to see. and still even today, the memory of that lady brings chills.
