Standard Japanese behaviour.

Depends on the exchange rate, what currency I can buy it in, how long shipping takes / costs, etc.

You really are rubbish at decent conversation angles. I imagine the Shibuya office is a laugh a minute, eh guys.

Nokia, without a shadow of doubt; constantly the most robust units, highly intuitive menu systems, mega long battery life.

paulinusa;

Studying music is as simple as opening a web browser and getting on with it.

And, yeah you are are right, I am sure they have no regrets...

Music school = fail.

Who do you know who makes genuinely ground-breaking original music who went to music school.

They will all be able to do cracking out of tune renditions of Yesterday, when they "graduate" for sure, but apart from that, we will never see these girls again.

Freeway II: Confessions Of A Trick Baby

Not really a twist, but I enjoy watching Trans-Sexual Paedophile Witches getting pistol whipped and baked in an oven.

Call it a fetish.

Standard behaviour for Japan, to be honest.

I did the Akabane half Marathon on the 20th Feb.

The queue for the toilet on-site was insane.

I just walked off site, went to 7-11, came back and ran. Took about 5 minutes.

Nothing will change in Japan, so no need to complain. Let the asians do what they do, and sit back, safe in the knowledge that you come from somewhere better.

'built-in joints'.

Wow, really? Not joints that are completely separate from the assembly?

ahocchau;

"In the world, Japan is like the smart dorky kid. You only want to be his friend because he has rich parents who buy him cool toys and you want to play with them once in a while. So you are nice to him for a day..."

Absolutely spot on.

I imagine the budgets are pretty high in Japan. It is the people that make them that suck here.

A case of 'all the gear and no idea'.

As for my first comment; I might actually make a film to prove this.

My shopping list consists of;

Editing software = 0円 (already got everything I need) Computers = 0円 (already got them) Camera=0円 (already got one) Script=0円 (I have an imagination) Actors=0円 (SOOOO many wannabe actors in Japan desperate for a break. No money required here) Distribution=0円 (everything can be done online, and I already have webspace and an internet connection) Lighting=0円 (Low budget film, so all atmos can be dealt with post-production)

The only thing I can think that would actually cost any money would be train fares to locations, and the odd bit of make up and a prop or two, which could also be ruled out given the right script.

So yeah, 50,000円 for what is essentially peer editing already available on the zillions of forums on the net. Wishful thinking!

Low budget film making seminar which costs 50,000yen.

You could make an entire film for that, if you played your cards right.

Moral of the story (which we have seen 100's of times before); don't marry Japanese.

Use your intuition TeruSensei; she looks like she is trying to make you think she is enjoying herself. Her expression is pure cringe.

Excellent example of how shite they are at dancing over here. This is definitely going to be 'that' dancing style they do. Those who have been to any nightclubs here will know what I am talking about.

Posted in: Namie Amuro's 'PAST < FUTURE' hits No. 1 in 5 countries See in context

OK, in the name of fair play, I decided to sit through some of 'her' music on Youtube...

Impressions;

-It is a direct copy of every American music meme from 3 years ago, and as a result is just American urban pop with Japanese levered in where possible. This includes the videos. -The programming of the drums is sub-par -There is no bassline hook (the MAJOR thing that the Japanese have no idea how to do) -I imagine it would work well with Japanese teenagers who desire a buffer zone between themselves and the genuine western article -She is attractive enough

Conclusion; I have no idea why anybody from the west would choose this over something genuine, as it is just a rip off.

jerseyboy: You are correct. I have a friend who runs a mid-level advertising agency here, who tells me that Dentsu pretty much control the minds of the whole country.

Can't disagree with him either.

News is the communication of information via a medium.

This medium has now had it's day. Like someone else said, "adapt or die".

It's objectively total rubbish. Nothing in Japanese music is better than the western version they are trying to clone.

No idea why anyone would want to invest this much of their life in this place. There are so many other places in the world that these efforts would be appreciated more.

After 5 years here, I know for a fact that these people are never going to change.

All good for the guys doing it, but it is a lost cause.

Lots of unanswered questions;

What was the content of the DVD; photos, video, what was the girl actually doing, was it just a DVD of files or was there a menu etc (which if present, would hint at the influence of others in the production), etc...

Posted in: Man, 33, who posed as schoolboy, arrested for indecent behavior See in context

"What now minors are compared to "game"; like deer are "game" for hunters in deers season?!!

Believe it varies by prefecture; however child protection laws set the age at 18 -unless you got parental permission and were allowed to marry."

Fair game, as in allowed to be amorously pursued with a view to courtship, not hunted like an animal, obviously.

As a British citizen, I legally and morally consider 16 to be an acceptable age for sexual relations, so for a man to be charged for something like this when the girl is 16 seems wrong to me.

Had he kidnapped the girl, then yeah, prosecute, but if she went of her own free will, I see know problem. The age gap is a bit of an issue, and does seem to point at the fact that the guy may be a little on the immature / odd side, but from the perspective of this situation being a crime, I think that is overkill.
