    This is a video of two Japanese artists who have had their faces projection mapped and tracked so they can have different animal and robot faces projected on them while they move around (previously seen before with a lady HERE). Pretty neat. I especially like the speakers-for... / Continue →

    Fukuro no Mise is a cafe in Tsukishima, Japan, with a bunch of domesticated owls that patrons can interact with (have sit on own hand/shoulder, take pictures with). It's extremely popular though, so you have to get in line before they open, pay 2,000 (~$17), then come back at ... / Continue →

    This is the Oppai Taisou Hand, a $28 piece of plastic that's supposed to make your breasts look and feel better. From what I can tell from the pictures, it it works by dragging back fat around and adding it to your tits. That, of course, makes no sense. Thankfully, there's a... / Continue →

    PROTIP: Ramp up the volume and prepare to thrash. This is a video of two women cooking shrimp in less than a second with some sort of shrimp-shooting air cannon, breading/egg wash blasters, and a fireball. I don't even know what they're selling, but you better believe I'm on ... / Continue →

    This is a video of 16-year old Japanese drumming sensation Senri Kawaguchi tearing up her drum set to a background tape track. It gets even more intense towards the end. Now I'll be the first to admit I'm not very good at telling if a musician is particularly good or not, but... / Continue →

    This is a video of two Japanese thrill-seekers playing a game of Crocodile Dentist in which they've attached a bunch of razor blades to the top of the croc's mouth. Looks like fun. I'm kidding, it looks terrifying. I sliced my thumb open to the bone on a broken glass a coupl... / Continue →

    This is a video of the new Guinness World Record for largest firework (previously: these ones). The behemoth at 3:25 in the video measures 4-feet in diameter and weighs 465kg (~1,024-lbs). That's over half a ton, and definitely powerful enough to support the weight of a grown... / Continue →

    Note: Video is entirely NSFW unless you work somewhere really cool. Seen here being waxed on by Mr. Miyagi, this is a video of the $5,000 realistic naked lady dolls from Japan that squirt drink out one breast when you squeeze the other. Several of the people in the video don'... / Continue →

    As proof that you can never get a burger that looks even remotely like the one in the ads, these are several pictures of Burger King Japan's all-black burgers spotted in the wild. As you can see, they look like shit. Which is a shame too, because of all the countries I'd beli... / Continue →

    This is the Kentucky Fried Chicken keyboard and mouse (technically a chicken) created by KFC in Japan as part of some sort of social media promotion. Apparently somebody is going to win all these peripherals by tweeting a special hashtag or something. Then they will immediate... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Mad Hatter hat juggler in Japan. He juggles hats. Plus rolls them down his arms and across his back, puts them on, takes them off, stuff like that. It looks like he'd make the perfect addition to my traveling sideshow. Just a heads up though, bro -- y... / Continue →

    Because pretty much everything you've ever thought you've known is a filthy lie, Sanrio recently mentioned that Hello Kitty isn't a cat, she's a little girl. Wait -- so like, a furry? Because she looks an awful lot like a cat. If she's not playing dress-up all the time then ... / Continue →

    These are a couple shots and a video of Batman cruising a highway in Japan on his custom trike. What's he doing in Japan? No clue. Maybe he cleaned up all the crime in Gotham already. Or maybe Gotham is such a shithole he just gave up and decided fighting crime in Japan wou... / Continue →

    Be honest, how do I look? "Dead." Because you only get one chance to make a last impression, a company in Japan allows people who are still alive to try on the outfit and makeup they want to be wear during their open-casket funeral (plus choose a custom coffin). Me? I don't... / Continue →

    This is a short video from Japan of an army of Pikachus preparing for battle in Akarenga Park, Yokohama. You think they're going to battle one of those Kaiju from Pacific Rim? Because I'd suggest recruiting some Charizards and Blastoises while you're at it. You gotta diversi... / Continue →

    Meet Mr. Knocky. He's a battery-free drum toy controlled by swinging two hand-held triggers. Not digging the sound of his plastic drums? No worries, you can swap them out for other percussion surfaces like a soup can or Pringles can. He is not recommended for use drumming o... / Continue →

    What the -- are you blowing a seagull?! This is the $135 Facial Fitness Pao from Japan. It allegedly firms and tightens your face. I've got the feeling it doesn't work that well. Plus for some reason famed Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo is the spokesperson. Pfft, ... / Continue →
