Supplemental Aging

I was trying to find some amino supplements in the drug store for my super active lifestyle. I noticed pretty quickly if you walk down the aisle it goes sports supplements, like protein, vitamins etc, then things for pain and joints, and then the weirder Asian herbal remedies for inactive junk.

They don’t really do boner pills much here, because they still believe that ginseng and seal liver is the solution. I wandered too far to one side and realized I was staring blankly at the morning wood enhancements.

Of course I took a closer look for science.

This name got me with it’s awesomeness.

Not just a sniper, but a sniper and a magnum. Or maybe he’s sniping you with his magnum. I don’t know.

On the back I noticed the fiery fist implying that you’d be fisting someone…with fire? I got uncomfortable, so at that point I put it back down.

Still perusing I noticed the lady who looked very pleased that she was about to be mauled by a very angry gorilla with GLOWING RED EYES.

And the box had not only a banana on it, but a banana that slowly became sparkly…

Clearly Japan still has a very different advertising aesthetic than us.

Pepsi Sakura

It’s pink, like a cherry blossom. It’s also a limited time thing, but not due to global climate change, like the real cherry blossoms. There’s a harsh reality for you to consider while looking at a cute drink.

Somehow the writing makes me think that this version of Pepsi is kind of EXTREME.

It tastes like heavily carbonated pink jolly ranchers and gave me a headache.

Shimajiro Introduction

Here’s a Shimajiro song about socialism and sharing half your food with people who didn’t earn it.

Here’s another one about how to re-use animations to save money.

An interesting thing is that the show will change animation style for each clip.


Originally these clips went along with the podcast about Shimajiro’s dystopian reality.

My wife is a gangster 3

This is one of those movies that manages to hit every genre within 2 hours. They do action, kung-fu, comedy, romance, drama. The only thing left out were zombies and ghosts. The movie is in Korean and Chinese, it has some great moments and the title itself is worth bringing up in a conversation.

The only real reason to watch the movie is Shu Qi. She could be in a movie that was two hours of her walking a dog and I would be pretty into watching it. Much like Azumi you get some great long shots of our heroine standing and looking, which is what she does best.

They should make a movie where Aya Ueto and Shu Qi stand around and stare at each other.

Azumi Movie

Movies where people run around with swords are awesome. Movies with a lot of posing are pretty cool. The only way to really make these movies better is to make the lead person with sword and person who spends the most time posing in front of the camera one of the hottest women in Japan.

Azumi has a pretty simple plot. Especially since they removed a lot of the basic plot elements by having the characters raised on a moutain totally isolated. But, of course, you don’t really watch a movie like this for the plot, although it’s a lot more thought out than, say, American Ninja 1 through 5. I say that despite having not yet watched the last 2. No, the reason you watch a movie like this is for the moment when the camera stays on her face and she looks pensive.

Thankfully, she does that a lot.

A lot. Yeah, oh yeah. She stands looking really thoughtful a lot.

Oh, umm, she has to kill the bad guy after overcoming some stuff. Yeah, that’s the plot right there.

Also, armour with built in nipple clamps.

Someone really needs to explain the purpose of those to me or I might not start to take this movie as seriously as I should.
