After the excitement of yesterday’s Royal Wedding– the dress, ahhhh!!– nothing is more appropriate than this lovely vacancy sign at a love hotel in Shibuya. Is the marital dog image the right one for lovers looking for “short term rests”? The random owls are a nice touch, plus the intriguing “in/full” that seems to stand in for vacancy/no vacancy.

Kate pegging Prince Will on commemorative plate
Congratulations, Kate & Will on your nuptials. To commemorate you can buy this “loving and humorous” plate. Click through to see the full NSFW (mom, that means “not safe for work”) full image. (Via Dan Savage’s blog).
Husband thinks this skater is hot
The husband pointed me to the website of Patrick Chan, Canadian figure skater. A mix of nerdy and athletic is very sexy.
Hunky Jesus contest in Dolores Park, San Francisco
Hope everyone is having a splendidly happy Good Friday. If you’re in SF, you can take part in the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence‘s Hunky Jesus contest. Compete!
“Would you hold it against me?”
Another video of active duty soldiers, occupying foreign lands and lip-syncing pop. This time it’s US soldiers in Afghanistan lipping and dancing to Britney Spears. I am relieved to know that military service is not just about killing and violence.
(Previously we featured Israeli and US soldiers doing Keisha and Lady Gaga).
Garfunkel & Oates – Weed Card
“Hey Dad, can you help me”
Who knew you could offend the Catholic Church in just 10 seconds? And just in time for Easter Sunday, my favorite Jesus holiday. I also heard that Lady Gaga will be releasing her video single Judas on that special day!
Juvenile delinquent, the lifestyle
The husband derides Shibuya as the playground for “horny teenagers from Saitama,” a place where suburban kids pretend to be urban. I love how this clothing store turns juvenile delinquency into a desirable lifestyle that can be purchased and flaunted.
What? We’re not already married?
Marriage equality is common sense. But, wait a minute, isn’t Chris Meloni already married to me?!
Sakura song provides winsome melancholy
I like this sad cherry blossom ballad, in a video that helpfully includes all the words in Japanese and English. Unfortunately I don’t know the name of the singer. Maybe some reader knows? As someone else pointed out on the interwebs, this ballad seems to suit the unsettled mood of Japan post-quake.
