Like an Edo parade in modern Tokyo Metro.
Month: September 2012
Looking for directions, all dressed up
Metro map is certainly handy.
So this is where they store their pants
There’s something lovely about seeing the “backstage” of the festival, the little things that make the celebration possible. Like somewhere to stash your pants.
Super sized bad boy
Why are ladies attracted to bad boys? I have *no* idea.
Junk shaking at fall festival
What better way to start this small fall festival photo series than some bouncing junk. Sure, there’s tons of male ass on display as the men (and some ladies) huddle together to carry the shrines.

RIP, Tereska Torres
Wartime comraderie never looked more seductive. I like the idea that we think back to World War II and remember the lesbianism. Why can’t East Asia reach this level of reflection and insight 67 years after the war’s end? What did Yoko Ono say about war?
Completely gratuitous shot of bike messenger
What’s not to like?
Sarah Silverman urges oldies to get gun license to protect their right to vote

Above is this year’s censored poster (click to enbiggin). I couldn’t find the au natural version on the interwebs, alas. It’s this Sunday, September 23.
Gangnam Style, by Korean rapper PSY
220 million views on Youtube. I particularly like the sauna scene with the tattoo guy. This PSY guy is styling!
