‘Tis The Season

December 5, 2007

Mizuki Horii

It is time to get into the holiday spirit and nothing says the holidays like half nude Asian ladies such as Mizuki Horii. She is a very popular Gravure Idol for obvious reasons such as her large talent and oversized abilities. What is a Gravure Idol?

Gravure Idols (グラビアアイドル, gurabia aidoru), who are models in Japan that are generally more provocative than regular models and aidoru, though not to the point of posing nude.

And in case you were wondering ladies, no I won’t be posting the male equivalent of Gravaure Idols. That would be bucknasty.

Merry Xmas.


Pop’n Music (ポップンミュージック) Madness

November 26, 2007

Now watch this and try telling your friends, “Oh dude, I so rock at games. I am 1337 beyond belief.” Wait, what’s that? What did you say? Did you just cry a little while your penis retreated into the warmth of your torso? That’s ok sonny, girls will still like you despite not having the 10 inch Pop’n Music e-Penis.

If you are wondering still what this game is, it is from Japan and falls into the Bemani category of games. I have tried it and it is fun but not my style. Also as one friend put it, “it looks like you are George Jetson working at Spacely’s Space Sprockets” and that killed it for me. I am not down with looking like a pussy-whipped retard of the future. I prefer to strive for something more manly.
