Have you heard her playing an actual song or did you just watch the videos where she shows her technique?
What do you base your musical critics on? have you studied music or is this just your opinion? which would be fine, but when it is your opinion based on your tastes, it is not proper to say “it is mediocre” as if Read more

nothing wrong with a critical opinion per se.

“PS I can’t do most of the technical stuff she does, but as a conservatory trained drummer who’s been in some popular bands, I sure know how to lay down a better groove than she does.” is just smartassery. Bet this guy only saw the first video, where she is showing her hand Read more

yeah, we should just ignore him, since he is so resistant to logic, but I don’t want to give my hopes up in humanity just yet, so I’ll try one more time, with quotations and all.

Maybe you should reread what you write before posting it.

You wrote in your first comment:
“you confuse the hyper-manlyness with queer.”

You are the one that made the assumption dandank was confusing “hyper-manlyness” with “queer” (those are your words right there).

In your second comment:

“jojo is an ode to manlyness. Read more

All he said was that he thought it was a FAN live-action take on Jojo after seeing that gif. He didn’t say that he thought Jojo was gay, or queer or anything of the sort. You my friend are the one that made the connection “he thought of Jojo” = “they look gay” = “he thinks Jojo is gay”. Dandank didn’t say it. You Read more

This is a bit off-topic, but I think it is important:
France is gonna stop referring to this group as “ISIS”. Mainly because most Muslims do not agree with them and they are not really “Islamic” in their actions anyway.
France has started using the word “Daesh” instead, which is how arabs call them. It is a loose Read more

Hahaha, good one. It definitely sounds like something Donald Trump would say.

that sounds really awesome! Is it ok to ask which is your home country and how the humor differs from the Japanese one?
I think that analyzing humor from a cultural perspective is really interesting, so I’m curious.

what? there is going to be a hollywood adaptation of GITS? :S...hope it fails to produce just as that rumored adaptation of Cowboy Bebop back in the day.

That said, I’d love to see this play. Looks promising.

A japanese friend once told me she would also wear this kind of masks when she was too lazy to use make up.
Another one wore them almost every day because she was more of an introvert and it gave her this feeling of security (like what you said about the sunglasses).

I’m all for musical-style commercials, but I’m afraid nothing might ever beat the japanese commercial for the SNES version of Legend of Zelda:

It is pretty disheartening if you really wanted one of the girls (or see yourself as a decent human being). Otherwise I find it a bit of a shame that no Valentine’s is pretty much the only consequence of your cheating. Plus you can always date Marie and another girl with zero consequences.

You are right that the word “fujoshi” isn’t about women specifically liking “sexy things” (really wrong phrasing before, my bad). Neither is the word otaku. But both would fall under the category of “weird”(hen) for japanese, so = not good in terms of what is sociable desirable. So my point with that part was/is “just

It’s not a cel-shaded effect, but the light effects on figures by sculptor PROGRESS are amazing (he mainly works for Medicos Entretainment. They have a lot of poseable figures as well as “statues” from Jojo’s bizarre adventure and Kinnikuman. He has also done some DB ones).
Like this Dio Figure:

uh...why are you laughing? your comment is so racist, it is trying to run for president right now (unless of course, you’ve seen the penises of all these guys and they weren’t big enough for you. In which case it would be nice to know what your standards are, because “tiny” strikes me as a highly subjective term)

I agree that how sexuality is viewed and treated in Japan is simply totally different from how it is in western societies, but saying that “Japan always recognized female sexuality” is not quite right.

Just last year, artist Megumi Igarashi was arrested for making and displaying a Kayak she made based on her genitalia Read more
