I Wish I Was A 50ft. Tall Dancing Bell Diver

July 16, 2007

I am a huge fan of electronica, having spent now about 15 years listening to the genre. It all started with a mix CD that I got on sale at K-Mart as I was going to go on vacation and thought “eh why not?” and an obsession was borne. From the old school Norman Cook (Fatboy Slim’s early days) to Electric Skychurch. I love the more upbeat stuff like Dance and Break Beat.

The video is for the 2004 #1 Billboard Dance Top 40 hit “Straight Ahead”, featuring Chrissie Hynde from The Pretenders, by Tube & Berger. Tube & Berger is the alias of German producers Arndt Rörig and Marco Vidovic. I am hooked on this song the past 2 days for its up tempo beat and great video of a dude wearing an old fashion bell diving helmet who goes dancing. Take notice of his perfect C-Walk.


Japanese Corn Kitty

July 16, 2007

Here in America, pets are spoiled. In Japan they are either strangely neglected or they are pampered beyond belief. One strange habit of owners is to feed your animal what would be considered non-traditional pet food. One common practice is feeding cats rice aka nekomeshi / 猫飯.

This owner apparently owns a cat who’s favorite food is corn on the cob. Seems pretty strange that one day sitting there they thought, “hey cat, want some corn on the cob?” But then again I can’t really talk, I give fancy cheese and Thai chili sauce to my cat. She is well versed in the realm of the culinary arts.
