There’s a decades long tradition of mostly male rockers dancing at the entrance to Yoyogi Park. They are sporting nearly identical 1950s greaser big hair and outfit. Maybe they were young when they started, but now they’re getting a bit older and drunker. I’ve heard warnings that they do not like it when non-members join the dance. On the plus side, are the tattoos and the sheer love of dance.
The husband thinks his hair is 80s gangster. I think he’s dreamy.
Enough arts & crafts. I am certain that most of my readers are more interested in moe. No?
I was waiting patiently at the lobby of a large multinational, and couldn’t help notice this young salaryman also waiting. He stood in the center of the lobby, holding the visitor badges for his guests, rocking on one foot.
There was something sublime about this mix of attention and boredom, formality and fashion, hard surfaces and human activity, security and hospitality. I should have taken a short movie ;-(
Is this for real? Apparently it was introduced on the Ellen show and then Jon Stewart’s Daily Show.
Here’s a hilarious online description: Shake Weight: The masturbating-style workout device for men
Three men, standing around–wielding, long, hard vibrating devices. It’s like any normal day in the locker room of a David Barton Gym. (You NYC folks know what I mean *WINK*)
Meet the Shake Weight: A revolutionary Terminator dildo (possibly sent from the future–or the gods) . . .
A crew of ten has been methodically hard pruning the ginkos on the main street in front of our apartment complex. I am amazed at the skills and resources devoted in Tokyo to public trees.
In San Francisco, the city is content with a 20 minute training session and a couple of chain saws. In Tokyo, trained arborists climb the trees, use hand saws and prune the trees into perfect shapes.
