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.

Want to host a Japanese game show on MTV? +

Japanese Game Show: Be a host on MTVSeems that MTV is indeed looking for a host for a pilot they are planning. I first saw this on Ningin, which linked Slant eye for the round eye, which linked to Nikkei View. Nikkei View apparently was sent an email from Suzette Brown, a casting producer for MTV’s Series development and animation. I was a bit skeptical because I couldn’t find any other information about it. However, it seems as though Mrs. Brown was a former JET member, and sent a message to the New England JET association that stated,

Hi,

I’m a former JET. I was in Tochigi so many years ago. I’m now a TV producer and MTV is searching for a host for a Japanese game show pilot. We’re looking for someone who appears to be Japanese or of Japanese descent and appears to be between 21-35 years old. I wanted to circulate this among JETs and former JETs ASAP.

I’m looking for Americans, perhaps Canadians, as well… but I didn’t want to rule anyone out. All they have to do is email me a video clip and we’d take it from there.

Thanks!

A few more details were specified in the message sent to Nikkei View,

People that exude a lot of enthusiasm, have wicked personalities, distinct styles and possess a unique charm on tape should apply ASAP. The perfect candidate would have a Johnny Knoxville-like appeal. If this describes you, please email nycastingteam@gmail.com immediately. Television credits are not necessary. Improv / comedy backgrounds are a plus. There will be compensation.

It is an amazing opportunity for the right talent, so please email nycastingteam@gmail.com with a headshot / pic and let them know why you’d be the perfect game show host. Must be well-versed in the English language. Union and non-union okay. Taping will be in New York.

So if you are Asian, have a Johnny Knoxville-like charm, and are dripping with enthusiasm, email nycastingteam@gmail.com . There was an MTV email address also listed in the message sent to NEJET. Good luck!

    This is a nicer way of saying they want someone Japanese. I don’t get why you’re all getting your panties in a bunch about it. This is the way casting works. Hollywood, or in this case MTV, have always casted people based on race, age, gender, appearance. I don’t see why you’re all so offended that htey want someone japanese.. this is Japan after all.

    You know, I almost sent her and email too. It did bother me when I read that too Mario. I really do hate being pessimistic, but sometimes the real world doesn’t work the way it should. I agree with you.

    I guess I should go ahead and submit it anyway just because. Maybe after the pilot is a success, and they need some more people for support roles, I would have a chance! LOL.

    Eh, not that I’m anywhere near close to fitting the description but did it really have to be some one who looks “japanese?”

    I wonder why this is bothering me. Maybe its because whoever is going to be hired will probably less knowledgeable about this culture than some of us non asian guys.

    I found a job for Chris!! Though I don’t know if he “appears Japanese” Why this guy wants American or Canadians who looks Japanese is a bit of a mystery to me. Anyone up for it?…
