Posted in: Takahashi becomes 1st Japanese man to win figure skating gold See in context

Too bad this article doesn't mention that the Vancouver gold and silver medallists didn't compete.

I was waiting for someone to mention this in an attempt to diminish Takahashi's accomplishment.

I feel sorry for al the crap Mao will have to face when she gets back to Japan. At least she won a medal, because "that is what the Olympics are all about."

Asada looks uncomfortable, Kim looks happy, Rochette looks like "whatever", and I hate the design of these medals.

I remember one year my division received permission from our chain of command to take the day off and go to Tagata. Good times.

They intend to try Major Hassan for the unfortunate outburst of violence at Ft. Hood

What do you think they should do with him? He killed twelve soldiers and wounded dozens of others.

I like Becky. Sato, however, I could do without. Rookies was bad enough, but he made it worse.

Sadly this wont be the last time we read something like this happening.

No. It will not be the last time, but considering the numbers I am surprised at events like this one not happening more often.

timorborder.

Please excuse me if I don't shed a tear for this hardcore druggie.

You have really become predictable with your comments on Sakai. We get it. You don't approve of recreational drug use. Stop it with the hardcore druggie remarks.

Posted in: Erika Sawajiri loses comeback movie role as contract termination looms See in context

I feel kind-of-sort-of bad for Sawajiri, but then again she has been a bit of a beech. However, A Space Battleship Yamato movie is something to be really excited about.

Posted in: Tokyo backers increase push to host 2016 Olympics See in context

I really want to support Tokyo as the choice for the 2016 Summer Olympics, but . . . .

.... I want to see them lose it just to take the winds out Ishihara's sails.

Oh stop with the bitter-interwebs-all-Japan-music sucks attitude. Cute no-talent acts existed long before Komuro came around. Not of his stuff was crap. trf, back in the day, was damn good stuff.

I might support the Olympic movement if Kamen Rider Den-O was involved, but they only managed to get Kabuto and Faiz.

I saw a clip of this on Mezamashi TV. Fujiwara does not have the best voice in the world, but she had the attitude of Sally Bowles down pat.

In a semi-related thought... I had a dream the a live-action movie of Ghost in the Shell was made starring Norika as Motoko Kusanagi.

In fourteen years of being in Japan I have never felt at danger in Kabukicho. Annoyed and irritated by the touts? Sure, but never threatened by them.

No kidding. Why couldn't Marie turn out to be as hot as Maia Ozawa (another French Canadian hafu).

Every time I see a kid on a leash I always think of the Simpsons episode where Homer's brother, Herb, invented the baby talk translator. "This leash demeans us both."
