    This is a video of sushi chef Hironori Ikeno preparing his special -- tiny slices of fish atop single grains of rice. There is no way I could get one of those in my mouth without losing it first. And if it did make it to my face, I'd probably accidentally vacuum it up my nose... / Continue →

    This is the soon to be released pasta flavored ice cream bar from Japan based Gari-Gari Kun. What's it gonna taste like? ASS. I'm kidding, I already said it's going to taste like pasta -- can't you read? If so, how about a bed time story? One with lots of sex and violence ... / Continue →

    This is a bra designed by Japanese lingerie manufacturer Ravijou that has a front clasp that will only release when "true love" is detected via a special heart-rate monitor and magical algorithms. But what if you're going to bed alone and just don't want to sleep in your bra?!... / Continue →

    Mountain Dew and Cheetos: the stereotypical bane of every gamer's keyboard. But do gamers actually eat Cheetos and Mountain Dew all the time? Yes. Although right now I'm on more of a Andy Capp's Hot Fries and Code Red kick. MY LIPS AND FINGERS ARE SO RED. Mountain Dew fl... / Continue →

    This is a video from the University of Tokyo of scientists using four speakers to levitate and move objects in midair. Unfortunately, those objects are limited Styrofoam balls, water droplets, and other pieces of barely there. I want to see them levitate a human. Or implode ... / Continue →

    Because Japan always gets way cooler stuff than the rest of the world, this is the line of Super Mario toys purveyor of barely-burgers McDonald's will be giving away in the country's Happy Meals. Here in the US? No clue, probably a pamphlet about exercising. All the Mario to... / Continue →

    This is the 'Ark Nova', an inflatable and easily transportable concert hall that can fit 500 patrons and I'm trying really hard not to say looks like Grimace's @$$hole. Dammit, I kind of already did, didn't I? I suck at keeping secrets. It measures 98 feet by 118 feet and fe... / Continue →

    This is Robot Ninja Lager. It has absolutely nothing to do with robots or ninjas except the name and its alleged Japanese influence. Don't get me wrong, I'd still drink it, but only if the bar was out of Mickey's wide-mouth bottles. "Please, GW -- tell me you don't actually ... / Continue →

    This is a line of Hello Kitty beer brewed by the Long Chuan Beer Company near Taiwan. I'm not sure if it's actually beer or just a wine cooler though, because it's only 2.5% alcohol. That's half of even a shitty beer. Plus it comes in passion fruit, lemon, banana and peach f... / Continue →

    Hot on the heels hooves of that insane Japanese horse racing game comes this ski jumping one (actually a Japanese PSP game called Ski Jumping Pairs). From what I gathered from watching, this is how the US team participates: three teammates start down the hill simultaneously on... / Continue →

    This is a video of World Cup 3, a horse racing video game from Japan. A very UNUSUAL horse racing game from Japan. I didn't really understand it, but that doesn't mean I don't really love it. "If you love it so much then why don't you marry it?" I already asked. "And -- what d... / Continue →

    This is a video from (where else?) Japan of a guy in a super-realistic looking raptor costume chasing an unsuspecting victim in an office building. The dude seems genuinely concerned that he's being chased by a dinosaur. And can you blame him? Of course you can, dinosaurs we... / Continue →

    This is the bra vending machine at the Une Nana Cool shop in Shibuya, Tokyo. It dispenses Wacoal brand 'Fun Fun Week' wireless bras for around $30. It's weird though because like, they're selling the exact same bras not out of a vending machine all around it -- and wouldn't y... / Continue →

    Because some people can't stand the company of others, Kyoto University in Japan has installed bocchi ("alone") seating in one of its cafeterias so you don't feel obligated to talk to the people sitting at a larger table. Of course you could always sit at my table, and we don'... / Continue →
