Courting Eccentricity

THis guy is a riot!

For all the criticism, Seidlin has come under for his off-the-cuff style. His wife said it's a character trait that has served him well as a judge and a human being.

"One day you'll see him walking down the street with a judge," she said, "and another day you'll see him walking down the street with a guy with a bird on his shoulder."

The Power of Cheese

Tired of the usual fare of sitcoms, talks shows, and music television? Here's the answer:

Watch cheddar cheese age in REALTIME!

I know a lot of people call Reality TV cheesy, but this is ridiculous!

Ancient Japanese

Two uniquely and thought long extinct shark species have been captured off the coast of Japan within the last three weeks.
I'm wondering if that second shark, the more lithe, graceful one, compared with the sea serpent variety found earlier didn't die because some chef wanted to taste it. The video does show a fin being presented. (gulp)

Am I disturbing you?

Silly Disturbances

Have you ever been in a restaurant or some other public place and been disturbed by someone? Well, watch this, and you'll never feel disturbed again!! Haha.

My favorite is the plates.

This is hilarious. Classic Monty Python.

Japanese Miscellany

Good reading for a morning breakfast at Denny's.

Photos missing

Apologies to all visitors who search back to old posts. The images are not displaying. This is because earlier I used Flikr as an image hosting service for my photos. That was a mistake. They delete images after a certain time, and after you exceed a certain amount.

This is a new policy after they were joined with Yahoo. As time permits, I'll be adding the images back in (of course I have the originals), until they are all displaying correctly.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Demons Out! Good Fortune In!

It's Setsubun here in Japan, and most families will practice the custom of driving out bad luck and welcoming good fortune by throwing roasted soy beans out their door or at someone in the household, usually Papa, who is dressed up as a demon.

As the family members throw the beans, they will shout, "Oni wa soto! Fuku wa uchi!", which means, demons out, good fortune in. Also, it's not uncommon for the family members to pick up the amount of beans equal to their year and eat them.

Boy, am I full! ;)
