Dizzee Rascal – Dance Wiv Me

July 26, 2008

Take a dude who can rap old school, add some great ragga beats and send them to the UK to chill. You end up with Dizzee Rascal. Having worked with Ecko to design sneakers and Beck to remix a song, he has made a niche which as he says “the biggest conflict I have is with major labels because they still don’t get it.”

Don’t expect to find him just on the shelves here in America but don’t deny, you felt like dancing when you heard this.

Props to Radek911 bringing this to my attention.

MaoChan Wants Lighting Awesomeness

July 1, 2008

I have always wanted to live in a techno color tube of funk. Now that might actually happen. Just watch.

Amazing.

Million Kazoku

June 27, 2008

After seeing the atrocious shit that was the ABC show I Survived A Japanese Gameshow, in all its fake glory (the host is American and the show does not air in Japan), I figured it was time to remind people what real Japanese game shows are like. I have posted before about a personal favorite called Haneru no Tobira many times. But here is one that not many people know about called Million Kazoku.

The premise of the show is that they have famous people, singers and tv actors, come to your house and you have 30 minutes to hide in your house. If someone can stay hidden the full time, you win 1,000,000 Yen ($10,000 US roughly). The cool thing too is that the families are encouraged to cheat a bit. If you hit the jump, there is another episode where the family’s daughter gets shoved somewhere pretty creative, and no it is not in someone’s ass.

Kim Couture Gets Hulk Smashed to The Jaw

June 25, 2008

The other night was a crazy night for MMA that has lots of people milling around wondering what should be done about women in MMA, the current brutality level of the sport, and how injuries should be handled when sustained in the ring. The fight was between Kim Rose and new comer Kim Couture, wife of the The Natural himself, Randy Couture.

Seconds into the fight Kim’s jaw was broken in two places and her nose broken as well. She ended up sticking out all 3 rounds but people are now questioning if such a thing should have even been allowed to happen once such an injury has occurred. Either way gotta give her props for being one tough as fuck mofo to handle that kind of pain while still getting hit in the face for another 13 minutes.

Hit the jump for rounds 2 & 3

Daft Punk Coffee Table

June 23, 2008

This here is one of the few DIY projects I really want to try except I have no idea how to handle the electronics. Carpentry, piece of cake but the circuits and programming, I don’t know shit. These were apparently something you could buy from a store in the UK called Habitat but are no longer sold.

Daft Punk has always had a soft spot in my heart. From the melodic beats to the insanely cool videos, they are always pushing forward music in a direction not many venture into. They are definitely innovators.

Around The World Music Video after the jump for a bit of nostalgia.

Learn to Run Your Own Dirty Convenience Mart

May 12, 2008

Grab a turban and some shitty knick-knacks as you get ready to embark on your training to run a dirty little stop and rob shop in Konbeni DS: Otona no Keiei Ryoku Training (The Konbeni DS: Adult’s Management Power Training). Now you too can pretend to be that old guy behind the counter who wouldn’t sell you cigarettes when you were 17. From stocking hot dogs to Horny Goat Weed Sex-MaXXXX, you will feel what it is like to run a gas station.

I kid, the game actually focuses on running a Konbeni, a Japanese convenience mart a la Lawson CS or Family Mart, in which you will have to stock bento boxes and hopefully have to do an oden minigame. It should teach those kids who play DS during school about their future careers.

Kyu-kyu.

Whatever you do though, don’t call the person behind the counter Grandma as it is liable to get you shot (video after the jump) or as Grandma said “His nuts…… they gone.”

Gyagu Manga Biyori Video Anime Shorts

May 9, 2008

Gyagu Manga Biyori, which translates directly as Good Day for Gag Manga is something I wish I had known about earlier. Just like Azumanga Daioh, these shorts are based on extremely short manga, not full books. They are animated into short clips that are only a few minutes long. And extremely hilarious.

When first viewing them, I initially drew a parallel to The Ping Pong Club which still takes the cake for most fucked up series of anime ever. This was like that except in a work friendly, shortened version. So far Gyagu Manga Biyori seems to be a win and I hope to find more. Hit the jump for the other videos and also take a look over at TV in Japan who posted these.
