Major yucks. Granddaddy – grandson politicians make me uncomfortable

IMG_1934

I recently complained about the creepy daddy-son politicans running for this year’s elections with their fists in the air. As the election approaches, the political pairs seem to be diverging even further in age. I just want to shout, “Boys, get AWAY from that creepy grandpa.”

On the left is Ishihara, who famously dislikes gays, French, and immigrants.

A supermodel channel Jackie O in family court. She seeks US $46k/month in child support

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!

All hail the Inseminator

Why would Arnold Schwarzenegger and the lion-like Maria Shriver (Kennedy) divorce after 20 years of marriage, and just months after his 8 years as governor of California? They seemed the perfect attention-starved power couple: he had money and an office, she had the name and media savvy. Isn’t that enough?

Christophe provides the Inseminator title and LA Times story exposing the Inseminator’s recently acknowledged ten year old child with a 20 year veteran of the household staff.

As the Japanese say, that’s “no0 guudo” (ノー・グウッド).

I wonder if those French just made this up to distract from the high profile Socialist politician IMF chief arrested for rape in his $3,000 per night suite. I am ready for all female political corps! More cougars, less violence, no?!

Best French Bakery in Tokyo

Boulangerie Le Bois, Best French Bakery in Paris

Japanese love bakeries; unfortunately, most of their breads and pastries are fluffy, over-processed and unsatisfying. My in-laws gave me some bread from a nearby bakery in Nakano called Boulangerie Lebois, and now I am hooked. This is the best French bakery in Tokyo!

The exterior, viewed from Nakano Dori near the Kanda river, is not promising.

However, once you get near, the smell of butter and fresh baking are intoxicating. Inside, it is a treasure of whole wheat bread, butter cookies, quiches, ham sandwiches, bacon twists, creams, custards, and pastries. The only seating are the two benches outside.

The friendly chef and staff made me think immediately of the boys love anime and manga Antique Bakery. (Antique Bakery episode one, fansubbed into English; Antique Bakery cosplayed by Bangin; Antique Bakery, the Korean movie version trailer).
