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 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.

I miss the old internet. +

My 3 year sabbatical from blogging has ended… To tell the truth, I’m not sure why I quit blogging. I really did enjoy it when I had the time. My blog was around before the current surge in social networks, web 2.0, even Facebook (hard to imagine I know). With my departure from the blogging scene, I also neglected my graphics and web design skills. So much has changed since 2003. Everyone has a blog of some sort which was unheard of back then. We were the vocal minority. I was looking back through my old links to friends who owned blogs, and only 1 or 2 were still up. We had sites like Survivorcam and InternetGossip to make celebrities out of people with webcams. I honestly had more closer friends online than I did in real life. I think it was after realizing that, it made me less interested in everything that I was doing on the internet. The time between my posts slowly started getting longer. And I only kept in contact with a few select people, some of which I still talk to today. My old site was more about my webcam. Just the other day, I was doing a search on “xorsyst” to see what came up, and the usual people taking my name for thier usernames came up, but I even found someone who had stolen my picture and made a profile on Yahoo! using it. You may think it would bother me, but it really doesn’t. I used to get that plus more when I had my site. People leaving racist remarks was the norm. But with all of the bad that was around then, the friends I made then was worth it.

So that brings me to my new site. Same name that I have been using for the past 7+ years (im the original xorsyst!) The graphic/webdesign bug has hit me again, and with Web 2.0, everything seems so new to me. Its really exciting. I have yet to decide whether I am going to put my cam back up. The only time my webcam gets moved is when I need to dust it. However I still do take lots of pictures, and I think thats going to be what I display the most. I am also really hooked on learning Japanese right now. 私は日本語が少し話せます。Im also addicted to Japanese TV shows. If you are too, you may have noticed Densha Otoko 『電車男』 up on the top. Densha Otoko was a very popular TV show in 2005. You will see alot of posts from me regarding Japan due to my interests. This site is going to be my playground graphically as well as the technology behind the designs. I have also left Pensacola, FL and moved to Clearwater, FL (9 hours south). There isn’t much opportunity in Pensacola for younger people, so I decided to move further south in search of a web design job. I’m confident that I will find something when I really start perusing jobs. I also have a few businesses I have always wanted to try starting up. So 2008 is going to be a busy year, and a lot of activity here. Bookmark me and hang on for the ride!
