Happy Halloween!

October 31, 2007

I hope everyone has good plans for Halloween. I have work tomorrow so nothing big will be happening. Also due to the fact that SA is full of stupid bums who party during the week, there was nothing happening this past weekend and thus I essentially did nothing for Halloween this year.

In keeping with the spirit of the day, I present to you two of the nerdiest/coolest pumpkins around, behold:

Cup O’ Nude-les

October 31, 2007

Nude Cup

So it is hump day and what a better way to celebrate than to hump someone. Well not everyone has someone to hump and so Rosy Palm and her 5 Sisters like to come play from time to time. If you are tired of the food at the one hand man buffet, you can now eat cheap for a change with some Cup Nude.

Essentially a sleeve for men, these delightfully styled auto erotica toys are sure to be great stocking stuffers this year for those people you know who stuff their stocking solo. It is designed as a one time use item. Be forewarned that if you order this, it will be Asian sized. It is true that they make their toys and devices a little smaller than their American counter parts. But at least now you can hide your sex toys among your food in the kitchen without being found. The question now is where to hide the 14″ black rubber cock, with the Oreos or the chocolate syrup?

Chopsticks not included.

Yamanote Loop Line Halloween Massacre

October 30, 2007

Yamanote Loop Line Issue Pics

OK, it wasn’t a massacre in that no one died. But lots of people apparently acted like douchebags. Really, this is the kind of thing that makes people hate Americans and having foreigners in their country in general. Reports put it at

about 200 to 250 foreigners, most of them Caucasian. There was also a number of Japanese participants, most of them Japanese women. After getting on the train, the party-goers became drunk and loud, shouting in English and becoming aggressive towards a few Japanese. At some point, an idiot removed or disabled the lighting in the train car, forcing the train to make an emergency stop at Shinagawa station, where police forced everyone out of the train and tried to see what had gone wrong with the lights. It is unclear whether this put an end to the party, or if it continued afterwards.

Nothing ruins fun like retard shenanigans. Hit the jump for a hilarious letter which “details” the happenings of the night.

Chu-Hi: A True Hidden Japan Gem

October 29, 2007

ChuHi

I had mentioned I would elaborate on what the fuck Chu-Hi is, well here you go:

Chuhai (チューハイ or 酎ハイ, Chuhai?), sometimes sold as chuhi, is an alcoholic drink originating from Japan. The name is derived from “shōchū highball” and is usually flavored with fruit or soda.

Think candy soda with alcohol in it. Coming in flavors such as lime, grapefruit, apple, orange, pineapple, grape, kiwi, ume (plum), yuzu (a citrus fruit), peach, and personal favorite, Ramune, the drink usually when served at a bar is low in alcohol. But in the can it can go up to as high as 7% (14 proof). Meaning that while you thought you were a big boy drinking beer, the Chu-Hi dude is getting ripped twice as fast. Many a night were obliterated thanks to the wonder that is Chu-Hi.

Test Your JNews Knowledge With Mainichi Virtual DS

October 29, 2007

Shimbun DS

Do you know whether or not Shinzo Abe resigned? What is the current standing of the Chunichi Dragons in J-Baseball? If you for some reason keep up with all this and actually can read Japanese, then you have some awesome trivia fun in store for you. Mainichi in conjunction with Nintendo has come up with a virtual DS on which you can test your trivia knowledge about current Japanese news events.

Now I am not going to lie, even if you can read Japanese this will be hard. Not everyone is privy to the current social events of Japanese society, politics, and sports on a daily basis. Hence horrible stereotypes. But don’t worry as the paper reported yesterday, the Godzilla attacks of October are finally dying down thanks to Mothra.

Bingo.

2007 Yamanote Loop Line Halloween Party

October 25, 2007

Yamanote Loop Line Halloween Party

It is official and here are the details for this years party on the Loop Line:

The 2007 event is scheduled for Saturday, October 27, 2007. Festival-goers board the JR Yamanote Line at JR Shinjuku station, platform 13 (Yamanote bound for Ikebukuro). Japanese citizens as well as foreigners meet where car 10 stops, in front of the escalator from South exit. Everyone boards the 21:08 northbound train and loops around clockwise. Frequently everyone brings their own alcoholic beverages.

Another interesting item of note is the can the dude is holding, a drink called Chūhai (チューハイ or 酎ハイ), which I will elaborate on more. In the meantime, get your costume together and get ready for some ugly foreigners to be cramped into one train while drunk. Sounds like fun.

“Trick or Treat.”

Mayonnaise Kitchen: My Personal Hell

October 24, 2007

Mayo Drink

There are only a handful of things I truly hate in this world. One of them is mayonnaise. That white, slimy, gooey, oily mess that people think is delicious. No other single foodstuff makes my mouth feel like it is full of dog shit than mayo. And reading that there is a place in Tokyo called Mayonnaise Kitchen causes me to seizure.

In 2006, Japanese consumed 1.65 kg of mayonnaise per person. I think that shows what they think of the crap. The restaurant caters to “mayoraa” [マヨラー], mayo freaks.. It even serves up the “Mayoty Dog”, which tastes like the vodka-based cocktail Salty Dog but is served in a glass with mayonnaise on its rim instead of salt. I rather get sodomized than drink that putrid concoction. OK, maybe not sodomized but definitely groped and violated.

Gag ‘n Punk.
