Misfits – What Heroes Should Have Been

| January 27, 2010

Actually, that’s not possible, because British television is so much more liberal than US network television (as in, allowing swearing and nudity). So it’s more like, what Heroes should have been if it were on cable. Anyway, if you are like me, you thought Heroes sucked ass, and progressively sucked more ass as time went [...]

Badass Surgeon

| January 22, 2010

This guy is the shiznit.  After diagnosing himself with appendicitis, being the only surgeon on the expedition, he operates on himself.  Pictures included. It takes a real man to poke around your own innards, without gloves. Ha, that could be misinterpreted lol. “I did not sleep at all last night. It hurts like the devil! [...]

OKCupid analyzes their data by race

| January 21, 2010

And it just confirms what we already know: Asian and white women prefer white men, and middle eastern women are hot.  OKCupid has access to some very interesting data sets and I’m glad they’re actually doing something with it. Thanks to Eric for the heads up. Black women write back the most. Whether it’s due to [...]

Ugh.

| January 5, 2010

[I take no responsibility if you google anything in this post.] So I was reading a post on reddit about a kid who made a lot of money, when I came across a term that I had gladly forgotten long ago in one of the comments…I haven’t chatted up with any Japanese nationalists lately denying [...]

The Koreans Cometh

Honda Chief: “Hyundai is awesome.” — Autoblog http://www.autoblog.com/2009/10/04/honda-chief-hyundai-is-awesome/ Japan’s automakers know a threat when they see one, and based on their words, it sure isn’t in Michigan. Motown is fleeting image in the Japanese carmakers’ rearview mirrors, which they’re now nervously checking for a budding South Korean juggernaut. … At the moment, I feel like [...]

Rule Britannia

| September 30, 2009

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nMRvZTk7QYE I love Wikipedia. I couldn’t think of this British anthem for awhile, but started reading about Britannia. It’s played quite a bit, especially in American media when showing off something British. You’ll probably recognize it if you fast forward to 3:45. Anyway, Britannia => Rule, Britannia => Youtube. Sweet.

DPJ and Political Capital

| September 30, 2009

Old news, I know. I haven’t been writing here much. Or at all. Anyway, so the DPJ won the last election in Japan, ending decades of rule by their competitor, the Liberal Democratic Party.  I guess the DPJ is the true liberal party of Japan, despite their competitor’s name. Although the DPJ does seem to [...]

Burcu Cetinkaya

| September 8, 2009

Holy hot mangoes! There’s something very attractive about fast, confident, and capable female drivers (not crazy, Bolsa, we’re-gonna-die, fast). And she happens to be pretty damn hot. And she has a female co-driver. Damn. http://www.autoblog.com/2009/09/08/video-another-reason-to-watch-rallying-burcu-cetinkaya/

The Destruction of Chinese Culture in the Mainland, Mainland vs Taiwan

| July 2, 2009

And…more personal musings… I started chatting with my friend regarding Chinese culture on the mainland. I’ve never been, but from what I’ve read and heard, it sounds like the culture as I know it, as I lived it through my parents and family friends, is rapidly disappearing in China. Humility, reservedness, politeness, looking out for [...]

Koreans and Asian Race Relations, USDM K-Rage

| July 1, 2009

OK, I’m going to have to be careful, since I have Korean friends, and I don’t want to offend. Well, even if I didn’t have any, I still wouldn’t want to offend. I should probably play it safe and say nothing, but hey, I’m an honest, blunt SOB, so I’m gonna write this. I’m a [...]
