This auto-tune masterpiece is currently my favorite song. I love the desperation of Katie Couric to generate attention, Manti’s childishness, and his dad’s rhyming bass. Pure genius.
The story about cooking expert Yoshiko Tatsumi was certainly not about this, but I couldn’t help noticing how hot her “pre-war construction industry executive” daddy was in the early 1930s. Why don’t today’s men look to that fine example of manhood?
Check out this movie trailer. The movie Beginners, starring Ewan McGregor, explores how an adult son’s relationship with his father improves when dad comes out. Wonder if it will come to Tokyo.
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!
I have a small fetish for young dads. There’s something about watching them care for their toddlers and young children that adds a certain sexiness. (Same for the hot children’s swim instructors at the pool I swim at). Dads in Japan can be very young. Please don’t call me gramps yet, but clearly this festish is inter-generational. I love the infantalizing gesture of this young countryside dad with his chipmunk hat attached to his belt. Sweet!
I couldn’t resist immediately posting this image of film hunk Benjamin Bratt in his new movie La Mission, playing a blue collar San Francisco dad who can’t accept his son being gay. Just seeing this image makes me a little nostalgic for the old neighborhood. なつかしい！
