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

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

60 Bacon Sliced Whopper

First God created Bacon. Bacon needed somewhere to live so he made Earth. But Bacon needed consumption, so he made people. But then stupid people shunned God and to punish them he put Bacon into pigs so that it was harder to get at it (before it was just walking around everywhere). People defied God and found the Bacon, locked away.

Once the secret was unearthed, it was sold to Burger King so that someone could go in and order a Whopper with 15 servings of Bacon on top, 4 slices per serving. And the man rejoiced, in his mouth was Bacon, in his heart was vindication, and in his soul he felt he had killed God.

I am tired of having change all around. I hate pennies and wish I could do something useful like play a game when I have a pocket full of nickels and dimes. Now with BankQuest you can take those slivers of metal and turn them into weapons and armor for your adventurer as you play through this RPG quest.

Made by Takara, famous for their Walkie Bits and other toys, the BankQuest will hold yup to 50,000 yen which is $500 American although I assume less since we don’t have $1 & $5 coins in our country and NO that stupid Sacajawea didn’t pan out into real currency so it doesn’t count. Goes on sale August 7th.

That sword, I’ll pay a fine price.

Daft Punk Coffee Table

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.

Fancy Up The Wine Party

Wine is a great beast to try and conquer. Complex, various, elegant, uptight, snobby. Well when you have friends over you need to make sure you can accommodate everyone. For the snot nosed douche bag who thinks Santa Margherita is the pinnacle of pinot grigios (come on, it is an $18 bottle) you can laugh in his face while sipping some fine Oberon ’94 cab from these fine, hand blown glass solo cups.

These glasses are actually very nice and fancy despite their shape. Sure you can drink from some Reidell stemless red wine goblets (barf) or some Waterford Crystal glasses (they sure are nice) but when you got the beer pong cup on a stem, it is definitely the way to go.

Wino.
