Amazing. That dad is one in a million.
Rough translation on some entries below because these are too hilarious.
I’m upset by how great this is
I have to watch this movie. Art style is amazing.
I was so excited to read this. Way back when I was working at Best Buy as a young man (2000-2002? I guess) I had a bunch of extra income. (No kids. Good pay) I would buy dvds every paycheck. When I came across Ha-Nabi, I was in in love. Then, a few weeks later, I saw Mishima. George Lucas, Coppola, and Schrader made…
Wow, Brian! This was a stellar write up. I honestly can’t believe that I’ve never even heard of this film, considering 1) how many movies I’ve seen in my life, 2) I have lived in Japan for over a decade now, and 3) it has such high-profile names attached to it.
...aaaaand Sega is getting my money. Again.
Japan’s Most Delicious Bread Is Melon Pan
I LOVE melon pan, but lately the ones I’ve bought online didn’t taste good, or have the same flavor/texture they used to have. Anyone have a good source?
Heh, weird. Was there just a few weeks ago. Must have got there very early to get the photos without people! There’s only a handful of places you can legitimately get to the bamboo as most is fenced off.
My accidental hoarding of Hibiki (I keep buying it and forgetting that I already bought it and buying more) is looking pretty smart right now.
I’m going to cry at how adorable all of this is please, The Shu, the drawings, the little kid handwriting, THE SLEEPING AT THE INTERVIEW.
Thanks for sharing this, Brian; my wife and I aren’t having children, but I still occasionally wonder what it would be like to raise a little person—and reading accounts like this provides both a glimpse of that life path, and a little reassurance that there are a lot of good parents in the world, doing good work in…
*stores the remnants of my Hibiki 17 in cryogenic stasis*
Guess I’ll go buy that bottle of Hibiki I saw last weekend at my local wine dealer then.
I just had it this morning. The milk taste was good, but I wish the coffee flavor was a tad stronger. It was also way too sweet for my taste. I’m lactose intolerant, so this is the better option than a real cafe latte. Oh and the yogurt one is soooooo gooood when you mix it with unflavored protein powder.
I think Chris Kohler wrote an article about VR Mario-kart or somthing to that extent. I was pretty interested then and am even more so now.
My favorite Mike Fahey story is second hand. He was at Comic-Con, sometime before 2011. He and McWhertor were down there together. Mike had saved up his dough to buy a bunch of toys from the floor and I guess he went there after the panels were done on Saturday. McWhertor came back to the room and found Mike laying on…
Saw this coming. You can’t have productive cardboard without your lovely cat taking advantage of it by making use of the basic concept that is...cardboard boxes.
