Suddenly I have some interest in the sport of rugby. I had no idea who Gareth Thomas is, but I can’t help but admire his extra set of hands.
Who will you be stalking this summer Olympics? I am excited for the games and media circus to begin!
Jealous and anonymous rumors circulated that Korean rapper Tablo faked his Stanford credentials, leading to much drama for this adorable singer. I love how this video merges rap with emo whining and boy band preening. There’s definitely a young gay undertone, and as one NPR commenter shrewdly observed, it’s amazing that the cars get so close and don’t dirty the outfits or make-up.
I guess that’s called “special effects.” Mostly, I’m surprised that there’s such sexy graduates of that geeky and fashion-challenged university.
I love this mash-up of Ronald McDonald and KISS! The store staff was super friendly, and I found a tie for 105 yen. Koenji is the best!
Sweet Mongolian sumo wrestler Hakuho is having a bad slump at the Emperor’s Cup. Three losses in a row, four in nine matches.
I have terrible news to share from inner west Tokyo. This will be yet another summer of Crocs. You thought this ugly fad would have long passed, no? Recently I spotted Crocs worn by a yanki with gold lame accented sweats, as well as a rather stylish senior gentleman. The horror!
Still, I love the way this yanki is staring down my camera.
It’s nice to see supermodels of the world still looking sharp. These are four images of Linda Evangelista in Manhattan family court seeking child support of $46,000 per month from French luxury brand magnate François-Henri Pinault. I love how she’s projecting Jackie O: tailored, rich, very Upper East Side lady.
Speaking of supermodels of the world, who do you think would win a runway walk-off between Linda and RuPaul? Ru would certainly win the lip sync for your life contest, but I’d love to see the fashion competition. Both ladies are standing tall!
These Taiwanese animators are genius story-tellers.
Mr Putin doesn’t believe in subtlety when it comes to his personal imagery. Bare chest, hunting rifle, and now harpoon! My, what a large gun you have, sir! (Credit: ZJB).
