Lust in Hell (2009) is a misleading title. While Hell appears in the movie, and there’s plenty of lust, the lust never actually occurs in Hell. In fact, nothing really takes place in Hell. It kind of pops in and out over the course of the movie, but never really takes center stage. Honestly, such […]

G&G readers (and anyone else who knows me) are aware of my feelings on Ghost in the Shell. Some years ago I remember reading that there was a Stand Alone Complex manga coming out in Japan. But in the years since I’d completely forgotten this exciting fact. Until, a couple weeks ago, my husband called […]
We all know the Japanese love some fried chicken. I’m sure everyone reading this has seen pictures of Japanese KFCs, complete with statues of Colonel Sanders dressed up in charming outfits. It seems that even anime characters have come to love all those secret herbs and spices too, since Dragonball Z‘s Goku is now pitching […]
Masaki Kobayashi‘s Harakiri is my favorite chambara of all time. I don’t say that lightly. In my estimation it ranks above Seven Samurai, Yojimbo, Lone Wolf and Cub, and just about any other samurai film you’re likely to have seen or heard of. I don’t mean that as a slight on those films – rather, […]
For the low, low price of only $125 night (which actually isn’t so bad for a regular hotel), you too can stay in a single hotel room that is one half of a public restroom in a park. Of course, you also have to factor in the cash to travel to Osaka to do it. […]
The Husband and I spent part of Labor Day at the Frazier History Museum in Louisville (formerly the Frazier Historical Arms Museum, I don’t know why they changed the name since it’s still almost completely a weapons museum).
Gundam Wing is NOT my favorite Gundam show but the Epyon is my favorite Gundam for two simple reasons: It has a fucking whip, and… its face looks like an Akira Toriyama character. Do you want your own giant robot? Of course you do; who doesn’t? Well, if you have a mere $1.3 million gathering […]
Just came across this post from a friend on Google +. I have never been a big fan of American pro wrestling (though I’ve seen a couple Wrestlemanias with the husband and one depressing documentary called Beyond the Mat).
Oh look, here is something kind of cool and completely weird. Is it Japanese? Of course it’s Japanese. People in Glass Houses I like the layout of the house. It’s really neat and I like the idea of a house that just sort of flows around you like that (and I like the idea of […]
OhmiGod OhmiGod OhmiGod. I want to fly somewhere RIGHT THE FUCK NOW. What could be better than resting one’s head against a pillow printed with Hello Kitty’s face? Darling Japanese flight attendants (that’s what we call them now, right?) in pink Hello Kitty aprons and airline food that actually looks good, if you can bring […]
Holy shit you guys. If I had a bank this damn adorable, I might actually save some money instead of spending it all on awesome 24-hour t-shirts from the Internet. Teh Cute It Burns! The ‘white’ cat seems to be a calico, while the ‘brown’ one looks like an orange tabby. They need to refine […]
Story the first: Japanese robot cell phone pillows. So you stick your cell phone in this pillow thing (I’m not sure how one is meant to dial through a pillow) so you can hug it in lieu of the person you’re talking to. Which is weird if you’re just called tour dentist’s office for an […]
