Shots #128 Tokyo Cityscape

Tokyo from above

Taken from the Observation deck at the Tokyo Metropolitan government building.
Sometimes you need raise yourself above the masses scurrying about their petty consumer nonsense and just gaze upon the city from afar. It helps put things in perspective.

REVIEW: Casio Selfie-Cam (AkihabaraNews.com)

My latest review. Check it out:



The Casio EX-TR35 is a peculiar beast... 
Were you to look at the specs, you’d see a 12 megapixel 1/23 inch backlit CMOS sensor mated to a 3.8mm (Full frame equivalent of 21mm) lens in a small, but not particularly impressive, plastic body.
Nothing to write home about. And definitely nothing to explain why Casio is selling them hand over fist in China and Southeast Asia, from between ¥70,000 and ¥120,000 ($700 - $1,200) each, depending on where you get it.

Why Did The Idols Run Across Shibuya Crossing? (Random Japan)



To make the dirty old man who owns them rich!

Because I don't want to help with that, I'm not going to link to anything from this idol group, if you care, google the name on their flag... a word of warning though... if you listen to their music your ears will bleed.

I suppose for a talentless, not spectacularly beautiful looking young woman of below average intellect this is a better job than working at the convenience store or prostitution... And even though Idol wages are notoriously low, they probably made more this month than I did, for a lot less mental work.

Damn I just realised Idols get exploited less than I do... That's a depressing thought.

EPIC Japanese High School Girl Ninja Chase Commercial.



Japanese commercials usually sway between WTF and RANDOM, but this one managed to infuse a healthy dose of EPIC into the mix. Props to the agency that Suntory hired. It's really clever, really funny, well put together and pretty damn effective. Almost makes me wanna buy a CC Lemon... Almost. Sadly no amount of amazing advertising can change the taste :p

Random Japan Phone Snaps #02

Sometimes I snap things with my phone that I only ever use once or intend to use in the future but never do. They gradually build up till I drag them all off my phone into a dump folder, where would usually spend the rest of their digital eternities...

Until now.


Enjoy these random images of random times in random Japan.

BMW M4 - Love at First Sight





Spotted my first BMW M4 in Shinjuku 3-chome yesterday.

~Very Very Want~ 

All the reviewers whine, moan and complain about the lack of sound...
It sounded phenomenal to me. 
Their ears must be broken.
