mayor

Kristin Chenowith performs “Popular” as advice to Anthony ‘Carlos Danger’ Weiner

A tribute version of the Broadway musical Wicked’s “Popular Song.” Lyrics include:

“You will be popular, the right kind of popular”

“I’ll teach you to zip your fly / You won’t be that guy with a camera down his pants.”

Can this tool still become the next mayor of New York City?

The latest image of Weiner’s junk makes the old one, covered in cotton underwear, seem positively modest. Carlos Danger has every right to continue to enjoy himself online, but enough with the politics, ok? Thanks to both the Daily Show and Colbert Report for sharing this image that can no longer be unseen. And thanks, Dirty!

Stay classy, New York City

My favorite Twitter politician, Anthony Weiner, is back, and considering a run for mayor of New York City. Former US congressman Weiner used Twitter to get inappropriately close to new digital, female friends. It’s unclear to me whether he loved himself or his fans too much. As another great politican would say, you be the decider.

Remember the video with super-hot Jane Lynch and Bill Maher reading the Weiner testimony?!

Too cool for school

The mayor of Aso City stuns 20 year olds at Coming of Age Day (Seiji no Hi) by singing and pantomiming a hit from AKB48, the 4 dozen popular faux school girls who are Japan’s most popular band and advertising monster. The mayor’s singing and emoting strike a stern warning to the young things to never become adults. Poor 20 year olds of Aso City! (Source: Neojapanisme)

I had a much better time greeting and mingling with the 20 year olds celebrating today outside Nakano Sun Plaza. The girls were a riot of faux rabbit and pink/orange/red kimonos and complicated updoes. Many of the boys fried their hair and en-bigg-ed it, paired with shiny suits evocative of men’s host clubs and mid-tier salary men and occasionally traditional men’s kimonos, one in shocking pink. More pix soon. Here’s last years’ photos!

I also met a very handsome Korean photographer, and realized I wasn’t the only one who came to gawk!

Matsui is a champ

Matsui Hideki is champ

Anyone who knows me knows that I do not like baseball or most spectator sports. However, I do like good-looking athletes. I am crushing a bit on Matsui Hideki whose Yankees team just won the World Series.

Somehow I never liked Suzuki Ichiro, another famous Japanese baseball player in the US. Not because of his talents, or lack thereof. He’s just too skinny and, well, ugly looking. Yes, I am shallow.

松井様、おめでとう!Which athletes do you think are hot?!

(ps: Major yucks. I think in the background on the left is the rich dude who just bought himself a 3rd term as mayor. Stay away from the good-looking athletes, ok?).
