Pokémon Nicknames: Farfetch’d

realistic_pokemanz__farfetch__d_by_jipjive

Farfetch’d (in Japanese: カモネギ  “Kamonegi”) is the “Wild Duck” Pokémon. It is a NORMAL-and-FLYING type, but does not evolve into or from any other Pokémon. I think that Farfetch’d looks somewhat like a mallard, but there is no distinction between male and female coloration among this Pokémon species.

This description is a direct quote from Bulbapedia:

“Farfetch’d resembles a brown duck with a white underbelly. It has a yellow beak and a V-shaped, black marking on its forehead. It has wings as big as its body, which appear to be prehensile enough to substitute for hands. It has yellow legs with webbed feet.

Farfetch’d is always seen carrying a leek stalk or spring onion. It carries it in its wings, and sometimes chooses to hold it in its beak or feet instead. Unable to live without its stick, Farfetch’d will defend the stalk with its life. Known uses for the stick include use as a weapon, nesting material, and emergency food source. It is selective about which sticks it will use, and has been known to fight over good ones. Farfetch’d is found in grasslands.”

One could probably re-cycle names for other duck Pokémon. If you have cute names for Psyduck, Golduck or Ducklett, they might apply here. (e.g. “Quakers” or “Quacker Oats“, or names like “Cold Duck” after the cheap wine popular with alcoholics.*

My favorite name for Farfetch’d is “Funyuns” after the famous onion-rings snack by the Frito-Lay Company. Farfetch’d carries that “stick” I thing, but I think that it looks like an onion stalk.

frito-lay-funyuns-onion-rings

Plus, Farfetch’d is a silly, fun Pokémon, so it fits. This name will also work with male or females.

Of course the stick can be the basis of various names. I have named Farfetch’d “Leeks” because the stick does resemble a leek used for French cooking.

Thus, I have named them “Take-A-Leek”.

Be advised however that the phrase “take a leak” means that you intend to steal a mirror if one is in Bermuda.

I cant really see who you are under that mask sir ... er .. mam?

I can’t really see who you are under that mask sir … er … ‘mam?

How about “Roosevelt” ? … as this duck quacks softly, but carries a big stick. How about “Walking Tall” after that movie sheriff  who carried a stick. Maybe make that “Quackin’Tall” … perhaps. You can make other names based on the stick/onion. “Rhythm Stick” as in the Ian Dury’s song Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick”.

Love-A-Duck” might be cool, this name would be based on the Tuesday Weld movie “Lord Love A Duck”.

I also like to use “Why-A-Duck” after the famous comedy routine in the Marx BrothersCocoanuts” movie. “Duck Soup” is another Marx Brothers reference.

Duck Calls” might be a good name for a duck Yes, I know what you are thinking: “Denny, Why not use the name “Dynasty” or “Duck Dynasty” after that reality TV show?” I will admit, that family made some pretty good looking duck calls. I’m not much of a hunter, but I would not mind having this set.

Blow just right to make the best “Quack-Quack”.

My all time favorite “Duck Call” were the “Miss America Duck Calls” marketed by Penthouse magazine in 1984. The American singer and actress Vanessa Williams is famous because she was the first African-American to win the Miss America pageant. Ms. Williams is arguably in-famous however because she had her title and crown stripped away from her after nude photos of her were published in Penthouse magazine. She had signed a “morals” contract with the pageant, where she stated that she had never had nude photos taken. Thus she was removed. Now these were not just nudes. The photos also include lesbian sexual activity – including the famous “Miss America Duck Calls” shot here. (The other photos are linked here, if you are over 18.)

How many Miss America’s have became famous however? Although she was embarrassed, Ms. Williams’ career was likely stimulated by the publicity. That’s how I remember it …  which might not be accurate …

… as I was drunk much of the mid-1980s : (

Ahem … oh yeah, What is the name for your duck? Please comment!

*Yup, that IS the pot calling the kettle black alright.

First Drink with Iwasa Misaki

Slide10

Iwasa Misaki sings her new single “First Drink”: Do you remember your first drink of sake? I sure don’t. I was in college, and already drunk out of my mind by the time someone asked me if I wanted to try some. I had to go to the liquor store the next week to buy a bottle so I could get my first sake buzz. Um … long story short, I ended up having it the next morning.

What — something wrong with rice for breakfast?

This is the first live performance of “Hatsuzake” (aka “First Drink”), her 4th single, which was released April 29. (Of course I already ordered it.) The song was written by Yasushi Akimoto. Youtube user AKB48SHOW#72(mitukunsp) posted this from AKB48 Show!.  I noticed that the song is slowed down(?) from the studio version. (I am not sure if that is that is the way it was performed, or if the user was doing it for legal purposes, or what..)

Also the green lighting makes her purple kimono look much lighter than on the cover of her new CD. The light show is pretty good. She is lighted by an electric bamboo forest. Only a drunkard would think that the lighting is like absinthe.

I also snagged some images from the YouTube post. Most of them turned out OK.

Indeed, the young Idol and Enka-singer is finally able to legally drink sake, as she just turned 20 earlier this year.

a pointed wasamin point

Miss Misaki said that up to this time, her parents had forbidden her to drink it. You see, Wasamin is a “good girl”… (Denny rolls his eyes dreamily and gets a really goofy smile on his face).

sake and two cups

Two cups? Wish I could have been there for that first drink of sake.

For Fans Only: Sorry, her explanation of the event was entirely in Japanese, and is not subtitled. Still, Wasamin says it all.  See link here. I could watch it over and over again in HD, just because … you know. I could listen to her all day. I would just smile and nod.

wasamin intro the video

OK, I’m not that drunk* so I think I can handle the Karaoke … here goes …

(You have to pretend that I’m singing).

can of wasmin yum

* I only get intoxicated from Wasamin.

Starlight: Still waiting for my new CD-DVD combo from Japan, but I will post some observations when it gets here : )
