The Simpsons Invade China & Go Global

For decades, Japan's Hello Kitty icon has been the world's leading soft power fictional character seen across the globe and is now the centerpiece of the current worldwide "kawaii" sensation. And since 1974, Sanrio has made everything imaginable with some form of the world's cutest little white Japanese Bobtail cat with a red bow. Recently, Sanrio even made a Hello Chucky doll and it sold out in less than 48 hours.

But that is now about to be challenged by America's most lovable and comical family from the fictional town of Springfield - The Simpsons. On Friday 20th Century Fox announced that the world's first Simpsons store will open in Beijing, China in March with an additional store opening in Shanghai in June. Following that will be a global expansion of up to 100 stores. This announcement comes after The Simpsons were previously banned in 2006 for a controversial episode about Homer visiting China.

Here is a recent CNN News video on this development:

Could this be the proverbial last nail in the communist coffin? Maybe.

New Old Tokyo Roppongi Video on Robpongi.com

Some viewers may be familiar with this one but this is how it all started back in 2000. It was all an ad-lib comic show on the streets of Roppongi, Tokyo. It was pre 9/11, pre-Youtube, pre-financial crisis and just too much fun. Nowadays, doing something like this is absolutely impossible to do. Anyway, here is Stormin' Norman and Mari aka "The Dolly Parton of Japan" having a very entertaining and humorous conversation about her 100 centimeter breasts on the Roppongi Video Happy Hour:

Because Taiwan: The Church of The Glass Slipper

For centuries, Japan has religiously worshiped the steel phallus. And then, partly as a result of all of that hard work, in 2006 Kurara Chibana won the Miss Universe title in her famous Ninja High Heels.

So, not to be outdone by any of that, and in an effort to attract more female members to its congregation, we now have Taiwan's new wtf spectacular development of the church of the glass slipper now completed and about to open next month:

It is tempting to make fun of this, but since it is an actual church of some kind or another I will tread lightly as blasphemy will mean the eternal damnation of my sole. ;)

Mike Garson's Tribute to David Bowie

One of David Bowie's most consistent, most significant and important collaborators has been world renowned pianist and composer Mike Garson. He first started working with Bowie back in 1972 and continued all the way through to his last live performance in 2006. Earlier today he uploaded his new song entitled Tribute to David:

This song was originally written and recorded in 2011 by Mr. Garson for his Bowie Variations album but he has never performed it since then.

From Mike Garson's Facebook page:

"While the whole album was variations on David’s music, this one meant the most to me because I wrote it for him. It’s how I felt about David in musical terms. Though there’s no doubt I have more music for David coming, this is what I have to offer this morning. Please feel free to share this with others and respond with your memories, thoughts and feelings."

See more at Mike Garson's official website.

From DavidBowie.com

"David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18 month battle with cancer. While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief."

In this song "Lazarus" he sings "Look up here, I'm in Heaven"

Quite a fitting stage exit from this world, indeed. RIP.

Note: The sold out off Broadway play Lazarus written By David Bowie & Enda Walsh continues through January 20th. Most likely it will be continued for a much longer run.

Live In Nagoya: "Crunch"

Here is an up and coming Japanese new wave pop group known as Crunch (Noriyo Hotta, vocals/guitar; Reina Kawagoe backing vocals/bass; Yoshiko Jinno drums) performing their short, airy and melancholy song entitled "Blue" live at K.D Japon:

Lyrics

I have been searching something in all my life, with hollow in my mind. I would be swallowed by the deepest blue as soon as looking into it

I always pretend to be not interested in, even if I expected to. apart from touch by anyone.

Are you kidding? Actually you are so wired.

It is so free as lonesome, beacuse I can decide anything. I have nostalgia for inconvenience caused by being with someone together.

In the city of night where many lights are together I used to be tearing at somewhere, it blinked, It's translucent days.

I was stranger there, Nothing left but to go home and sleep. It is same about a future I hope or a future you won't hope.

It is so free as lonesome, beacuse I can decide anything. I have nostalgia for inconvenience caused by being with someone together.

It is so free as lonesome, this feeling with transparency. I was waiting in sun shower, but that guys were in sunlight.

一生かかっても埋まらないから探し続けている  覗きこんだそばから吸い込まれそう どこまでも深い青

期待しててもいつも知らん顔 誰にも触れられないように 実は理不尽なのは君の方 まるで子供みたいに

寂しいくらいに自由に 何もかもを決められるから 誰かが居る不自由さを 今は懐かしく思うよ

無数の光の粒ひしめき合う夜の町の中で どこかで泣いてるあの頃瞬く 半透明な日々

良く知らない子たちと遊んだ あとは帰って眠るだけ 私の望む未来も きっと 君が望まない未来も

寂しいくらいに自由さ 何もかもを決められるなら 誰かが居る不自由さを 今は懐かしく思うよ

寂しいくらいに自由で 透き通るこの気持ち 天気雨の中を待っていた あの人は陽射しの中

Taipei Zoo Pandas Yuan Yuan and Yuanzai Part 2

Taipei Zoo Pandas Yuan Yuan and Yuanzai Part 2

Via Taipei Zoo October 23, 2013

Earlier this year in August, the Taipei Zoo released the cutest Giant Panda videos ever seen in the history of the internets. These starred momma Yuan Yuan and her then one-month-old cub Yuanzai. These highly emotional short clips went mega viral and were broadcast on many international television news stations and are still quite popular all over the world wide web.

Well, just the other day the Taipei Zoo did it again and has now brought us a very cute behind-the-scenes look at baby Yuanzai as she gets lost after an examination and, literally, stumbles into momma's bamboo grazing grounds:

"Fukuppy" Fukushima's New Corporate Character

In an effort to alleviate the fear of Fukushima's ongoing nuclear disaster and food safety, the Fukushima Industries Corporation (a refrigerator/freezer manufacturer) has recently unveiled an all-new corporate character named "Fukuppy":

Fukuppy Fukushima's New Corporate Character

On the introduction page for this character it begins with this question and answer:

Q. Where were you born Fukuppy?

A. I was born in a Fukushima refrigerator.

The character also states that it is not yet a male or female because it is still an egg (with wings). It goes on to explain that it enjoys eating alot of food and is always on patrol and checking out the quality of meat, fish and vegetables in all new refrigerators. Also, to be fair, most likely, the Japanese pronunciation of this new oddity is "FOO-KU-PEA" or 「ふくっぴ」. And perhaps the logic behind this is that by putting a raw egg in one's refrigerator, somehow it will then indicate if any food has become irradiated. Mmmkkaaaayy...
