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.

helped by the mafia +

exam time! w00t. well that enthusiasm is definatly fake. anyways. this weekend was kinda slow. my offtime i spent getting ready for exams. nicola gets back tomorrow, so im excited about that. oh yea, at work saturday. this guy came in looking for a present for a kid at a party he was going to that night. so he picked out this stereo system that was about $129. and when he went to go pay for it, his credit card was declined. it was a store credit card, so i took him up to customer service so that he could ask what was going on. turns out that he bought something a few days earlier, that he returned, so his credit wouldn’t be back on the card till monday. so he started to get upset because he didn’t have anything to go to the party with. so as we were walking back to put the stereo system up, he was kinda cussing and all that. saying “what am i going to do” etc. you could tell he was starting to panic. so i suggest looking for a gift less than $129, thinking maybe he had enough credit on his card for that. so we did, found a boombox for about $62. and we went to the counter, and his card allowed him to buy it. now heres where it got freaky. i was standing in front of him, and he goes “you dont know how much you helped me. and then he put out his hand as to shake it. i shake it, then he grabs my hand hard so that i couldn’t pull away. then with his other arm, he puts it on my hip. at this point, im like “uhhhhhh” getting kinda uncomfortable. and then he goes, “you dont know how much youve helped me. do you know who i am?” im thinking in my head, “should i know you?” and then he goes into this story as if he’s a member of the mafia. this guy is puerto rican, kinda old (maybe 50s). then he keeps repeating “you helped me today, now im going to help you”. and he kept pausing looking into my eyes. i was really freaked out, but didn’t want to cause a scene so i just sat there listening. the girl behind the counter that was ringing him up was just standing there looking. but if it wasn’t for her help, that guy would of continued giving me this mafia story. she jumpped in asking him to sign the paper when you pay with a credit card. after he left me go. i went back to the warehouse and was back there waiting for him to leave. turns out he got into a conversation with the girl behind the counter. he was asking when she was available, and if she wanted to go out for dinner etc. this girl is my age, and was trying her hardeset to avoid his questions. later we were speaking about it, and she said that she could smell the alcohol on his breath. that explained it all. i bet he was semi-drunk. ah well, guess i should be off to school. got my internet programming exam in a few hours.
