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 […]

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 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.

Friday Five +

Feels good to still have one of my old habits… Time for the Friday Five! I have been participating for years (when I remember to do it). Lets get to it.

1. Pick one label that you think does describe you (race, religion, hobby, etc.).

Opinionated – Yea, I have a bad habit of having an opinion of everything. Luckily I know when and when not to speak my opinion.

2. Pick one label that is often put on you, that you really think is inaccurate.

Unorganized – Sometimes I can come off as unorganized, however I always have a backup plan, or a reason for doing everything. Come on, im a Virgo. We are just that anal about things!

3. Pick one label you wish could be put on you.

Positive – I like to look at things logically. Theres always a good side, and a bad side… a positive and a negative. When I do identify both sides, I tend to go with the self protecting negative view. I feel if you are prepared for the negative, then if the positive does happen, its a more welcomed outcome than the negative one happening. So I spend more of my time and effort concentrating on the negative sometimes. Identifying your problem is the first step to recovery isnt it?

4. What is one kind of label that you think is universally wrong to use (race, gender, height)?

That is a hard one to answer, because we all use generalities as human beings in order to tackle problems. The question is a bit vague though because labeling someone by race or gender could be considered racist and sexist, but it would depend on why you were actually labeling them to begin with. Lets look at advertising. The point of advertising is to make money. It exists for no other reason. If I had a popular hip hop artist, or country singer, and I only knew the race of the body I was advertising to, would I use race as a label? To make money, yes. Would I consider that wrong? Of course not. However, if I was a CEO of a company, and I was looking at the sex of my employees for advancement, that would be wrong. So it really depends on what your use of that label is to whether its wrong or not.

5. Labels, used intelligently, can be a convenient rhetorical shorthand for identifying how a given person will fit into (or react to) a given situation. Labels, used incorrectly, can be an excuse for dismissing the differences still inherent in the people to whom the label is applied. Discuss.

I think I may have answered that in the last question, lol. Yep see. I can be very opinionated.

If you have never heard of the Friday Five, its a blog that posts questions every Friday for you to answer. They have been around for YEARS. So head over to Friday Five, get the questions, and post them to your blog! If you don’t have a blog, feel free to use my comments for your answers!
