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.

5 mins before hell +

i dont remember the last time i was this worn out. i swear i will never go shopping the day after thanksgiving. you think you know how hectic it is… just imagine if you had to work in the store! well it all started at like 4:45 this morning. the alarm went off, and i couldn’t be bothered, so i hit the snooze till 5. then by that time i had 30 mins to take a shower and get ready. so i just flew through all of that. and went outside to start my car. trust it to be frosted over. so by that time i was kinda late, so i got water and threw it over my windows to defrost it faster, jumped into my car, and sped off. just my luck on the way to work, the water that i had threw on all the windows froze. so it was like a hazy semi-transparent film on my windows. luckily my windshield wipers kept the front window clear. so i get to work about 10 mins early. and was shocked to see a line extending about 50 yards out the door. it was a mess outside. people were out there drinking coffee in 40 degree weather. the things people do for sales. so i get in there, and everyone was there, talking, getting ready and hyped up. it was a pleasant atmosphere during the last 5 mins before hell…

when one of the supervisors shouted “the doors are open” everyone stopped talking, and focused on the stream of running people coming towards the sight and sound section. i stepped into one of the isles to avoid being runned over. people were shouting questions so fast that i couldn’t even get a chance to look anyone in the eye. my mind was in overdrive. “the 199 cameras, to your right. ps2’s straight ahead and to your left. dvd / vcr combos, in the back” etc was just flowing out of my mouth. im glad i did a quick walk through of the department before we opened. it was like a reflex, i didn’t have to think, it just came out. the line of people lasted at least 20 mins just coming into the store. it was hard to even turn around at times. after about 30 mins, someone wanted me to get a UPC code for something in another department, so i had to go outside to a tent where they kept the xmas trees and such. i noticed an ambulance outside with no one in it. i just figured they had one just in case since it was such a large number of people in the store. someone was bound to get hurt. as i was going back into the store… i saw the reason why it was out there. in the mad rush to get in, it seems as tho someone pushed an older lady over and she messed up her ankle. i felt so bad for her. it was just the greed of people that caused her to get hurt. the things people do for sales… after around 12, it calmed down considerably, even tho it was busy all day. i got in at 6, which means my normal clockout time would of been at 2. but it was so busy today that they kept me till 6pm. 12 freaking long hours of work. im hurt, hungry, and exhausted. sigh… the things i do for money…

    what sucks is that people go shopping, and then are too tired to cook so they go out to dinner, and they are so rude! they hate waiting! ok just because you get to our restaurant at 7 pm, which is ALWAYS the busiest time of the night, YOU get mad at US because theirs a 1 1/2 hour wait? EXCUSE ME.. the wait is BECAUSE OF YOU BEING HERE! If you don’t want to wait, GO HOME! We don’t want you here ANYWAYS.
