Sayaka Yamamoto’s suggestions for gaining 20,000 views on WordPress.

sayaka yamamoto review in detail

I have been on my blogging hiatus, however I checked in today in order to view/return messages and delete my spam.  I was pleasantly surprised to see that I have now accumulated well over 20,000  views on WordPress!!!

Vintage kimonos online shop

Still on hiatus! I am having coffee and checking all my messages today. I am feeling so guilty for not having a “Kimonos on Monday” today, as I am taking a short break from blogging.
Somehow, a great throw of the cosmic dice has saved me! FRAN posted this on Sunday, so I am going to re-blog it while I still have some Monday left in my time zone : )
Coffee. Hiatus. Do you think that coffee causes hiatus the way it causes halitosis? Ever notice how closely related the words HIATUS and HALITOSIS are? Yet, once again I digress …
For those of you who are recent subscribers to my blog, please check out Fran’s blog!!! You will find many interesting posts about of Japanese art and culture. Also, she “writes more gooder” than me …
I suggest reading all of Fran’s posts on her “Sequins and Cherry Blossoms” in my absence.

Sequins and Cherry Blossom

kimono detailThere used to be shop in Neal St, a long time ago, called Neal St East. No, not the same as the East chain of shops that now have a branch near Covent Garden market; Neal St East was something else. It took up four floors of a complex emporium where goods from China, Korea, India and Japan were piled up in chaotic profusion, like an Eastern bazaar that had taken it into its head to migrate to what was then a quiet back street. I used to love it, not least for the racks of vintage kimonos on sale. Now vintage is becoming an increasingly acceptable choice, Neal St East is gone, taken over by a shoe shop. But it’s still possible to get your hands on vintage kimonos if you know where to look.

“Kaette Oide”

Do not worry about me, O Little Great One.

The Little Great One.

My Dear Friends: I will have to take a break from WordPress for a few weeks in order to pay more attention to work related activities.  You see I process requests for agricultural chemicals. The work is very dull … very dreary. I would often break up the mundane workday by listening to my favorite Jpop singers, many of whom have been recommended by my fellow writers here on WP. Unfortunately, my “in” box at the office and at home is so over-stuffed I will have to stop posting new material for a while.

EDIT: My comments deleted here …

Double unfortunately I will also not be able to read your posts as much as I would like, dear hearts.  I may check my messages from time to time, and maybe go in and delete my Spam (… holy Magi-carp … I just now looked … I had no idea how much spam was in there. I hate it … how it is now harder to access your spam folder … what with all the changes to the interface WP has made … Sorry, that I digress… )

I will not be able to make very my usual witty, Oscar Wilde-like comments on your posts. When I can return, I will make sure to review all of my favorite bloggers. My comments on topical issues may be delayed, but never will they be permanently waylaid.

Please enjoy one of my favorite Hanako Oku songs “Kaette Oide” which translates as “Return Home” or “Come Home”. I’m not sure which is the better translation, but I know The Little Great One’s song was used as a commercial jingle for frozen vegetables. No, I’m not making that up, the commercial used to be on YouTube (Record Industry Weasels took it down, but don’t get me blogging about that right now.) During the commercial, a nice lady comes home from work all tired, and she then has to worry about feeding her family. Good thing that she has a pack of (Whatever-Brand) easy-to-prepare food. Vegetable, meat (I think) and sauce all in the same easy-to-heat package.  Kaette Oide.

It is sweet, emotional song. Oh, Ms. Oku is my Raison d’être.  The reason for this blog in the first place.

If I only had a brain … a heart … and some courage …

I will return in mid-March … I have NOT YET said everything I want to say about Japanese Pop Culture. I will still give your posts a read when I am able. Although I will be able to compose little, I do want your latest Jpop, art and fashion news, the Pokemon events, and exactly what happens on that anime about the Lesbian Bears everyone has been talking about.

KIMONOS ON MONDAY (Week #39): What would it be like to go on a date with Mariko Shinoda?

Imagine being on a date with the glamorous Mariko Shinoda!

What would it be like to be on a date with the lovely Mariko Shinoda, or any of the ladies of AKB48? You may want to try the Playstation 3 or Vita game AKB 1/149 dating simulation game. This RPG game gives fans a chance to go on “virtual dates” with their favorite idols – or any of them in AKB SKE or NMB  groups. I have never played one of these dating games, and I do not have a Japanese Playstation, so I guess I never will. However, I am very glad that I found this video which features the lovely Mariko Shinoda in a lovely kimono! She is so elegant, so polite, and so ravishingly beautiful in these gameplay moments!

mariko pours sake 0300-480x320

Yes, I would LOVE some more sake, Mariko!

I always loved Mariko Shinoda when she was with AKB48. She was so stylish, and so graceful. Her dancing was great, and she always made it look so effortless.  (She was notable for being able to learn the dance moves faster than the other members.) I do think it unfortunate that she has decided to forgo a singing career however. She was a good comedian too.

I love this clip. It really captures what a wonderful person she must really be. She is beautiful, but she is also a woman of very strong character.  She is so well spoken and  so well mannered.  (Mariko graduated. That means some lucky bastard guy out there gets to see this for real right now.)

You will need a Japanese Playstation Network account to play the game. So that lets me out, darn it … I have however seen the gameplay for these dating simulation games on YouTube. Your RPG character has options to take on particular interactions. You need to make the proper selection, and choose the right thing to say and do at selected points. You either win the Idol over or you don’t.

If you come on too strong, she will think you are a pervert and reject you … if you are not aggressive enough she will think you are a spineless wimp and reject you. Sound familiar, gentlemen?

akb149datinggameps3

The AKB48 dating games on the PS3 have video in them.  I think I might actually prefer the older PSP handheld games, which did not have video, but which used still photos instead.  The stills — I think were cuter … and probably safer … especially for an old man.  The PS3 videos look so realistic that it would be easy for one to become delusional, and think that the ladies are really there. (I mean even more delusional, than I already am.) With the stills, you remember you are playing a game. I’m also thinking with all the text, it would be a great way to learn the Japanese language.

Here is some “the making of” the video game which shows the outfits that Shinoda-san wears in the game.

What light through yonder breaks?

What light through yonder window breaks?

She is stunning even in the deleted scenes!!!

Unfortunately, the gameplay does not show Mariko’s full kimono, although there is a brief, full view in the “making of” video above.  I Googled these photos for a better look. Enjoy.

Pokémon Nicknames: Pancham and Pangoro

Premiere Of DreamWorks Animation's "Kung Fu Panda 2" - Arrivals

Pancham (in Japanese: ヤンチャムYancham”) is a baby-form Fighting-type Pokémon. The little panda Pokémon evolves into Pangoro (in Japanese: ゴロンダGoronda”) starting at level 32, but the player must have a Dark-type Pokémon in their party. Pangoro is a dual-type Fighting/Dark Pokémon.

X Y wallpaper for your computer!

X Y wallpaper for your computer!

I named my party-member Pancham “Chang Bang”. This is in reference to the Chinese river (and motorcycle brand) the “Chang Jiang”. Pandas are from China, so it fits. A friend of mine said that the names sounds too much like “gang-bang” as in these unruly gang-bangers who commit crimes in urban areas. Remember it is a FIGHTING type, so that is where the BANG comes from.

Speaking of the Chang Jiang, didn’t The Pretenders have a big hit in the 1980s “Back on the Chang Jiang”?  Wow — it sounds great …

My son named his party Pancham “Bam Boom” because Pandas eat bamboo, and the BOOM is for his punches.

Pancham fighting type

I named a female Pancham Lucy Liu after the beautiful actress (she even had a part in the “Kung Fu Panda” movie). I did not let my Lucy Liu evolve from the cute/baby form … well, because Ms. Liu is so cute, and I could not imagine her as a Pangoro.

If you did not want a Chinese sounding name, maybe use “Sprigsteen” as these pandas are always chewing on a sprig of bamboo in the game (and you can use your “Sprig Hat” in Pokemon XY).

I named another one “Manchuria” after the Northeast Region of China. The related name “Manchukuo” may also be good along that same line of reasoning. Perhaps you could use “Kung Fu Cham” or something similar. I suggest any Chinese name which might have a special meaning for your fighter. You may like the name “Ming Gardens” after my favorite local restaurant.

The names Ming Ming (for a female) and Ling Ling (for a male) may also be good names, as these are the names of world famous Giant Panda’s which lived in East Asian zoos. Get this: Zookeepers have a problem breeding Pandas in captivity.  The ones which were born in captivity were especially clueless on how to do the mystery dance with each other.

I am not making this up: Back in the 1980s, American Zookeepers once tried showing a “panda porno” film to a young panda couple, in hopes that it would teach them to learn – what goes where. Sadly, the panda pair were more interested in the projector than the film, so that idea failed. Darn, I wish I could have found that hot panda film to share with you. In lieu of that, please enjoy a photo of the stimulating Lucy Liu I found in GQ magazine.

Inter-racial dating: White guys and Asian girls (age 18+ readers only)

Another blogger requested my perspectives on this issue. I am posting it here. Warning: Denny uses “adult language” here. If you are a minor, or otherwise have a big stick up your butt, please do not read this.

wondersofdatingasainlady

I loved her the moment I met her … is that so wrong?

Denny’s Drunken Logic: Part XXVII

Sit down, and join me young man.  I’m glad to have the company.  What are you drinking … let me get the first one. I’m having a (Brand-name) dark beer.  I love dark beer, especially in the winter.  Also, the darker the beer, the deeper the truths.

When you live as long as I have, eventually one begins to accumulate knowledge.  I’M GLAD YOU ASKED  about this touchy subject of interracial dating – specifically about “White guys dating Asian girls”.  Short answer? I’m all for it.  I am Scotch-Irish, and so white, you can still see me when the lights are turned out.

I know that there really is no one “right” or “wrong” perspective on this, and opinions will vary. Also, how you define “Asian” might make a difference.  Is there a difference between an Asian girl who was born in America — and is fully Americanized in language and culture – versus a recent immigrant? Maybe.  I will try to draw these distinctions whenever possible.

Asians were a very small minority in the Midwestern part of the country where I grew up.  My main contact with East Asian immigrants and Asian-hyphen-Americans had been in Chinese restaurants and Tae Kwon Do classes.  I worked for about a year in a Chinese restaurant during high school.  The waitresses looked so cute and leggy in their silk uniforms! I have always been comfortable around Asian crowds, and have always considered Asian ladies uniquely beautiful. (Spoiler: My wife is Asian — also an immigrant– but that is another story.  Actually, if she were here, she would be counting my beers, so let us carry on.)

Beer #1/Lesson #1. When I was in graduate school, many foreign students were part of the department. The faculty wanted an “international” department, so they recruited from East Asia and other counties. This mix included some Asian ladies.  I always enjoyed talking to them.  I think that because their first language was not English, it made me more honest. I had to be more direct, and mean what I say. We all have our everyday defense mechanisms, but I had to let down my personal barriers in order to talk to (the Chinese students).  I could not use too much slang, euphemisms, or my patented sarcastic, and often abrasive – sense of humor. Looking back, this probably made me a nicer person. I had to become a better listener. Perhaps this “required honesty” is one reason why Asian girls and formerly sarcastic Star Trek fans might be a good match…

My graduate school dorm was where I met a lot of foreign students, including many nice, intelligent women from East and Southeast Asia.  Oh, yeah and God, were they sweet and cute. Sweet innocent fish-out-of-water. They came from interesting cultures. Oh, and so easy to be a gentleman to … because they were so polite, it made it easy for me to be a friendlier person. Oddly, many found ME interesting .. imagine that!  The “cool” American chicks never did. I think one of the reasons I got along so well with the foreign grad students was because they did not know that I was a “nerd”.  They gave me a chance and got to know me.

Beer #2/Lesson #2. There may be some white Americans who would frown on interracial dating, but I certainly never had any doubts about it.  Some old ninnies might stare, or give me the stink-eye, but I did not care. I’m out with a beauty.  When I was young and nerdy, I was often super self-conscious about myself, but when I was out dating my Asian lady – I DIDN’T CARE WHAT THEY THOUGHT.

My graduate school years were pretty lonely in comparison to my wild undergrad days. I had to put in some long, lonely hours on grad school projects. I would sometimes feel lonely about girls I liked, but did who not see me as a potential date or boyfriend.  I once felt down because certain girls were not interested. Now everyday I THANK GOD that they rejected me! … I would find ladies much more to my liking.  Everything happens for a reason. Drink up.

Oddly, some White girls who would never date me, STILL did not like me dating Asian girls. Why should they be judgmental? (Anytime I see a WP article on this subject, it is always a negative one toward the guy. The white guy is always the bad guy for liking the lady on these posts. Many white women bloggers are VERY jealous.) They did not like me … so why should I be lonely?

Forget them (… and I did).

Beer #3/Lesson #3. Bloggers on WordPress can be pretty racist … or “reverse racist” … which in other words, is just plain racist. I search the “Asian” tags about once a week.  Most of the articles are about food, I like the travel photos, but some are about Asian social issues – including racism and dating.

Now, I would not intentionally set out to date an Asian girl specifically.  When I was younger I just wanted to date GIRLS — not necessarily a certain TYPE of girl. There was one Asian lady blogger here on WordPress who stated that she hates “white guys who would not think of dating a white girl, but want an Asian chick instead”.  She said that she thought that white guys hitting on Asian girls was “creepy.”  She sounds like a bitter woman. I might actually agree with her, in that a guy should not go out and try to date a “type” or be looking to put another “notch” in their record (Asian girl? Check.)  But I would ask this blogger: What is wrong with a white guy thinking that Asian women are beautiful?  Denny says sarcastically: Sorry .. for liking your culture. I just wanted to be nice to you.  White guy-Asian girl is a fairly common inter-racial combo — considering all the possible inter-racial permutations.

Apparently there are some WP Asian-American girls who just do not want White guys approaching them at school or in bars.  Apparently these guys with “yellow fever” … as they call it, think that the Asian girl will be easy.  I do apologize about these jerk-guys if they are ever rude.  No one wants unwanted attention, no matter what your ethic background.  Look, it is creepy for a guy to hit on any girl who does not want the attention, but it is NOT creepy for a White guy to love an Asian lady!  Ohh … there it is: the three-beer buzz!

Look, I really, truly, deeply, LOVE my wife. It makes me angry when these bloggers say that I have a “fetish” or I have a “patriarchal” or “colonial” view of Asian women.  (Gulps beer in disgust.)

Beer #4/Lesson #4. For most of my dating years, I thought that my “type” was red-haired Scottish lasses. Really, I did not have a type — and now I’m married so what difference does it make?  Hmmm, maybe I do have a preferred type.  Of course I have been out of the dating pool for decades, but I still have my appreciation for beauty. There are certain singers and actresses that I like, and many of them are Asian.

There was this episode of the “Sons of Anarchy” TV show where the biker gang was on the lookout for another biker who had betrayed them.  They were talking about where the renegade member might be. One member asked “which whorehouse does he usually go to?” Bobby-Elvis replied in a gravely voice: “He likes ‘em young and slanted…”. Of course I was appalled at the use of such racist/sexist language in a TV show, but then I thought for a moment: “… likes them young and slanted?  … Oh, that is SO ME.”

Is that so wrong?  It should not be wrong … my feelings arise from love.

Beer #5/Lesson #5. There is this blogger on WP.  He is an Asian dude, and he writes a lot of articles about how “racist” America is.  He is especially critical about the lack of big-name Asian actors in Hollywood movies. Wanka-wanka-wanka (Denny makes jerking motion.) He claims that there is a lot of racism against Asians in America. (I don’t agree, but that is another article.)  He also hates that “nerdy white guys” are too attracted to Asian girls. He is also jealous because he says that so many Asian girls want to date white guys. He does not like “racists” but he does not want White guys dating Asian girls.  What the problem is I don’t know.  What is wrong with two people who find each other and love each other?

Screw him, he’s the bigot.

Beer #6/Lesson #6.  Alright … let us also be honest with each other.  Who am I kidding? I love all the world’s women, but Asian girls are the best.  Each one is unique. Of course there are many body types in a large population.  One thing … Overall, it is probably true that Asian girls do not have such big boobs in comparison to their Anglo-American counterparts.  That is just in general, and I don’t care.

Not a problem, dude. I have never been a “breast man” myself.  Great if the “big ‘uns” are there, but it is not the main way I might judge a figure as interesting.  (Keep in mind, I am out of the pool now, so I can be honest with you young guys.)  So big tits are not a big deal for me.  I like a cute face and nice legs.  These are attributes that Asian girls have in abundance.  They look great in mini-skirts. “Pretty in Punk” I would always say in the 1980s.

Beer #7/Lesson #7. You know what really pisses me off? In Southeast Asia, so many beautiful Asian ladies do not like their dark skin.  They even use these harsh chemical to – get this – whiten it.  That’s bullshit man.  Er, I mean that is tragic.  Their society thinks that dark skin means that they are farm laborers, so it is a class distinction —  bull crap. Dark, Indonesian skin is a wonderful thing, and it breaks my heart to see them think otherwise.

This is as bad as the “foot binding” that Chinese women had to endure for centuries.  You know the story … small feet were desired, so the women would have to mutilate their feet for some social-structure-appeasement-bullshit.  Oh, FUCK me .. do you know what a HORROR this was perpetuated on the world? Jesus, … er .. I mean Buddha … Chinese ladies have fantastic natural feet.  I don’t know what it is, or how they do it. Look up “A man’s candy” in the dictionary there kid, and you will see a photo of an Asian chick’s feet.

Do you want to talk about injustice? Look at China’s “one child policy” … it led to about 70 million female abortions or infanticides, because most couples wanted a male child.  Those stupid Communist pricks! Ah-hemm … let me clarify: Those stupid Communist LITTLE pricks. They destroyed the best phenom that this existence has to offer my species.  Chinese girls! — what a wonder. Those stupid fucks … alright I’ll have a water.

Beer #8/Ice water#2/Lesson #8. You’re a big boy, we can talk about grown-up topics. There is one thing you need to know about Asian girls, and it is a pleasant surprise.

Asian girls have the nicest pussies … far superior to that of white women.  (Note: I have to use this word, the medical terms do not suffice in this context.)

Look, don’t roll your eyes. Stop laughing. It’s true.  Let me give you an analogy. Now I know what they say about black guys.  It is true – on average black guys have bigger dicks than white guys do. Ok, they win that one. That’s not racist, it is just an observation to be either proved or not. If black guys are bigger than white guys, then Asian girls are sweeter “down there” than white girls.

I don’t know if it is culture or chemistry – but Asian girls have the sweetest tasting pussies. You are looking embarrassed dear boy … but you should not be.  Have there been times you had to be heroic in order to do the deed? Uh … huh.  Thought so. Some white girls can take care of themselves down there pretty well, some do not.  Maybe it has something to do with oriental diets, or the way they take care of themselves.  It may be biological in that the way an Asian girl sweats (or lack thereof sweat). Don’t ask why, just enjoy it young man.

Black comedian Martin Lawrence was banned from Saturday Night Live because he told jokes about how nasty some black women can be down there.  This is SCIENCE kid.  Don’t flunk Chemistry 101. The chemistry of a White guy and an Asian girl are perfect heaven-made bio-chemical matches for each other.

All girls are different … there are some exceptions …  and I’m basing this observation on a pitifully small sample size, but I have discussed this with my colleagues.  Wendy’s hamburgers taste better than McDonald’s hamburgers. Well … Asian pussy just tastes better. You are in for a real treat my friend when you find this out for yourself.  No more “doing your duty” – you will be a volunteer.

If you are lucky, and the roll of the romantic dice leads you to an Asian lady, you will experience the sweet clouds of heaven. What memories. Who knew? This is quite unexpected. Where has this been all my life? You will lose track of time. Space and Time will have no meaning.  I suggest LEARNING TO WRITE THE ALPHABET!  You will simply exist in a world of exquisite textures and flavors.  Talk about finding a new purpose in life. Words can’t describe it … Asian girls don’t stink.  They are made of pure candy.

—- … probably was the last thing Denny remembers he said.  Rest assured however, that at this point, Denny and his young protégé politely paid their bar tab, called cabs and went their separate ways for the evening.  Denny went home, read the Bible, and got a good night’s sleep.  He awoke early the next day, refreshed, then  cheerfully went to his job of processing agricultural chemical purchase orders.  Really, all went well. —
