Narita Airport Video and Travel.

November 7, 2009 Leave a comment

Ahh so I was going on my way reading through my blog, when I saw that Japan Probe actually did an entry that had me say.. Nostalgic.. that’s right a way to navigate through Narita Airport to travel into Tokyo. Ever since I came back from Japan, I have been a fan for their Suica card system, since it travels with Tokyo Metro and JR. Passmo can only travel within the Tokyo Metro, and I for one would say that travel within Japan is not for the faint hearted, it cost money, and definitely this video would be a great reference for those going to Japan for the first time.

Google Reader.. weeding and what not..

October 6, 2009 Leave a comment

Well as I was thinking and thinking some more on what to write about on my blog, I updated my professional blog, and now this. I am probably going to weed through my feeds soon..

1-Because it is not compatible with Google Reader.. do you realize how annoying it is to see this icon every time? As I skim through my Google Readers.. there are so many other blogs to look through. Now this is not meant to be an insult.. but yes will have to cut this type of blog out.


2-This is definitely a mark against Google, and the rampant linking 0r discrediting of people who upload, and then get their images taken, however because time is definitely money, this is not so good.. well as a reader, must try and manage my time. Hm.

Popularity of MJ lives on – with a Moonwalking Contest

September 12, 2009 2 comments

One of Michael Jackson’s legacy I have to commend on, is his Moonwalk Dance Style. While the prince of Pop was still alive, I profess to have never really liked him. But I have on times enjoyed his music, and to see it now being used like this… takes the cake.

Japan Probe does an article on a Moonwalking contest, with contestants moon walking 30 foot backwards, who is the fastest and such.

Lost & Sold Sale for items lost on JR Trains.. how lucky!

September 3, 2009 Leave a comment

Okay this is another story I found pretty interesting. People can lose things on trains right? Well JR Railways actually has rules that regulate how much time, can items be claimed before they are sold in a public auction, at very cheap rockbottom prices. Laptops, ipods, applicants, DS….some new, and very cheap. (sighs)  Wonder if the U.S. would do things like that? The only lost & found of this kinda scale is either the Grand Central Railroad one or the NYC MTA.  Because if no one ever claims them, then what happens? It would be a waste of space to keep it. Hmm..

Here is the Japanese Youtube newsclip.

Sato Ryuta anticipates Hollywood opportunity.

September 3, 2009 Leave a comment

One of the news that I have been interested by is pretty gossipy, but pretty silly. It appears as though Sato Ryuta of dramas such as Rookies, Bambino, Konkatsu!, Kisarazu Cat’s Eye, and Kimi wa Petto was trying his bid to get into a Hollywood film. Recently there was a premiere of the recent X-Men film with Hugh Jackman in attendance. Sato was dressed up pretty nicely, tried to put a bid to be in the next X-Men film. I picked up this news from Japan Zone. So included with this entry is also a picture courtesy of the blog itself. Wonder if his tactics worked? It would be interesting.


On a side note, I use to like X-Men, back when the very first movie came out. Hence my interest.

Tea being passed off as New York Tea in Japan…would that work?

August 20, 2009 2 comments

After a period of checking through my Google reader… found this blurb of information via Japan Probe, but the gist is this, Ito En is marketing Tea’s Tea as an exotic New York drink. I buy enough of their drinks from Kino or from Zaiya, but talk about globalization marketing. Wonder if the scheme works?

Here’s a youtube video.

Response to Koje Oe’s “Giving recognition where it’s due”

August 15, 2009 2 comments

Okay I normally don’t get that annoyed by blogs entry, and I read/skim a lot of them via Google Reader, but this has to be shooting yourself in the foot, and opening up a can of gunpowder. I reminded myself on what is considered blog etiquette before writing something like this.

The blog entry in question is this.

This is where I find issue with… and I decided to write a blog entry, because I figure my comments would be a little too much text for the response box. Plus blogs have a trick called linked back.. so if I referred on my entry, their blog entry, then yes the original writer will be able to access this entry.

I don’t read anime blogs. I don’t read your blog. I don’t like your blog because you might write 1 entry that month that I might actually read. I hate all the blogs on animenano (maybe that’s the problem) because they’re completely boring, and not relevant to my interests.

One – If you don’t read anime blogs, then you must follow some news so that you get updated with Anime news… if you read one entry that month. Then isn’t that reading an anime blog then?
Two -Are you trying to flame someone, because as a reader of anime blogs myself, I have taken the courtesy of time to look through your blog as well. While my commenting habit might be rusty, don’t use strong words as a way to downplay your blog.
Three – I see that you have J-list’s “Friends of J-List” Affiliate Program, so isn’t that then a characteristic of a Japanese lover, or one that blogs anime topics? Because as I read the information page, people actually can earn commission for showing that ad. So you’re earning money off of something that can be considered a hobby.
Four – Anime Nano, is something that can be sifted through, and while yes, there are blogs that may seem redundant, it actually is not your decision to say otherwise. I have discovered blogs that are getting pretty big names out there in the anime blogosphere, and to hear you belittle that makes me feel annoyed.
Five – It is a matter of preference, and some bloggers may need improvement, while I don’t count myself out of this loop. It is a matter of opinion.. and while this make be a statement you make to introduced Canned Dog’s blog, then pretty callous opinionated words. Not everyone can be like Danny Choo or other famed anime blogs… so don’t kid yourself.
Six-Blogging, and writing is an activity that is worked upon, so remember your audience and who you are actually writing to. Writing styles are actually different, and for the reader to have a preference to read various styles of blogs, then that is for their choice to make.

I can’t really write any more than this, and to actually think about this coherently at 5am is wearing. Last perspective to say, pretty much take a grain of salt with every reading experience, but try to keep an opinions to yourself, and if you don’t like a writing style then yes – don’t read it… But don’t contradict yourself.. sheesh…
