Not better than me - i've never murdered anyone.

This man took 30 peoples lives for no good reason.

He was a mass murderer. End of.

Well put.

Seasonal traditional local ingredients (imported from China and mislabelled). This is a "tradition" far from dying out. Seems to be quite the boom in fact.

Lots of empty Cup Noodles and Manga, I guarantee it.

I agree also that smoking in a crowded place is a bad idea but I can't get my head around the logic of- it's OK to smoke inside but you can't smoke outside.

well, think about it a little more.

Aaaah yeah, now comes the hard part. After all the flag waving it suddenly dawns that lots of gaijin are coming to make your life inconvenient for a couple of weeks.

I didnt notice this was a Kuchikomi piece until the 2nd paragraph. They are getting better. Still the Mr A and Mr B nonsense was a dead giveaway.

Don't tell me about the sudden adventure spirit of Lollapalooza then say Mumford and Sons and The Cure are headlining. There have been plenty of great female musicians the media and Perry Farrel chose to ignore for the past 2 decades.

Taking an interpreter I hope. His English is truly painful to listen to. 45 minutes of this is a real challenge. Maybe it's a clever ploy because if you actually try to listen to him he is just waffling a load of superlative heavy pledges.

Posted in: NTT showcases technology which can 'correct' Japanese people’s English pronunciation See in context

Japan should get rid of the Katakana syllabary system

That won't help. The moraic nature of the Japanese language makes epenthesis almost unavoidable for the majority of speakers.

Posted in: Miike's action film gets booed at Cannes See in context

Lest we forget, Miike is the same hack that made Battle Royale -- a movie that was solely made for gratuitous violence

I don't usually disagree with you Smith, but you're wrong on 3 counts here. Miike is not a hack, he has made some very highly regarded and extremely diverse films. Battle Royale was not one of them however, not because it was not a good film, but because Miike didn't make it.

There are few titles out there that bring this kind of excitement, brand awareness and built-in audience to the table.

Kubrick didn't need pie charts to plan his next film.

International sensitivity

I'm not sure who he thinks he is but seems he has the wrong idea about himself. He's the Mayor of Osaka, he doesn't need it. No-one outside of Osaka needs to know who he is. 99% of the people in the world couldn't find Osaka on a map.
