Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

Posts tagged ‘Popular Culture’

I (HEART) Junko

Silly me, I thought Ms. Junko Akimoto was an “Enka” singer. Music experts say that she is actually a “Kayōkyoku” singer. Enka is based on a pre-war Japanese traditional singing style called “Ryukoka”, while Kayokyoku is a much more modern pop music by instrumentation and singing style. Enka has been likened to tango, Kayokyoku is likened to jazz.  I’m not sure I could explain the distinction. I can remember back in 1979 when I could tell you the difference between Punk and New Wave music. But I digress … 

Call it what you will, I think that Junko-san is grand. She’s beautiful.

junko-51zaikqorzl-_sy355_

I’ve grown to appreciate these genres — mostly because I can’t stand what is popular in America. These songs are all about secret longings, broken hearts, guilt and atonement. It is a lot like country music actually.

I first found out about Ms. Akimoto-san from an Iwasa Misaki music video.

You will hurt my feelings if you do not watch this. You all know that I am a big fan of Iwasa Misaki, and that Wasamin has launched a successful Enka singing career. It was mostly through Misaki-san that I have grown to appreciate the traditional Enka Japanese singing style.

In Miss Iwasa’s video cover of “Ai no Mama de (The Way Love Was?) it was widely quoted that Wasamin is “tutored by Japanese Enka singer Junko Akimoto”. This particular song, lyrics linked here — was Ms. Akimoto-san’s most famous single. “Ai no Mama de ..” reached the top of the Oricon weekly single charts in January 2009. She became the oldest singer (at age 61) to top the charts in Japan. Well … this still makes her a spring chicken in comparison to any of The Rolling Stones.

Starlight: Oh what time is it? I think that Hee-Haw is on.

Pokémon Nicknames: Togedemaru

ok_pokemon__togedemaru_in_alola_cosplay_by_krazykari-daov155

All credit goes to the original cosplayer … and  Hey – you electric type — GET AWAY FROM THE POOL when I am in here!

ALOLA COUSINS!!! — wooh! —  whatzit?1? — (Denny reacts to scurrying underfoot, nearly spilling his Pokébeer). What is it with Pokémon and electric mice? First there was Pikachu – along with its pre-evolved and evolved forms, Pichu and Raichu respectively. Then in Pokemon XY, there was Dedenne. Techinically, the little surfing mouse and regional variant “Alolan Raichu” is yet another mouse. (I’m not sure if the water mice — like Marill could inherit an electric move)

Now for the Alola region, there is another little electric ball mouse. Togedemaru!

tog-tumblr_o9lppepjel1ufy5xqo3_250

From Bulbapedia: Togedemaru (same as the Japanese word: トゲデマル  “Togedemaru”) is an Electric and STEEL type Pokémon. There are no known evolutionary forms.

alolaelectricballmouse

I actually think that “Togedemaru” is already a pretty cool name, so I was resistant to nicknaming it. However, when there are sooo many of them – yah — (Denny whirls suddenly, as more mice dart underfoot) … you need to be able to sort them out.

I have named them the same name as my mouse or electric Pokémon – names such as “Eek!-A-Mouse” (after the punk-rock band) or “Voltaire” (after the French philosopher).  Cutesy names like “Sparky”, “Cheeky” or “Mookie” are always applicable.

toge-img_0323

Other suggestions:

Rotund” because it is a fat, spherical little mouse. Other names based on spheres, circles or balls might work. “Circle Shock” base on the famous LA punk band “Circle Jerks

Zig Zag” after the tail.

Plug-N-Play” for various electronic devices. “Plug-Ins” after the room deodorizer.

Topo Gigio” after the famous mouse who used to appear on the Ed Sullivan Show. This led me to think of “Gigli” after one of the worst movies of all time, staring one of the most arrogant and idiotic actors of our time.

You might name Togedemaru based on which moves you teach it. It can learn the move “Rollout” early on, so you might use the name “Rollerball” after the classic sci-fi movie.  “Topspin” or “Holy Roller” are other examples. The Pokémon may have the “Iron Barbs” ability, which will make your opponent think twice before hitting you with a physical move. You could name females “Barb” or “Barbs” , “Rhubarb” and the like.

My favorite name is “Lectricshave” after the shaving lotion commercial. Electric shaving comes to mind since Togedemaru is both Electric and Steel type. Ahem … (Denny takes long slug of his Pokébeer). Ladies, use that electric shaver today, and see just how enthusiastic that makes your fellow tonight. I guarantee there will create some electricity.

My other favorite name for Togedemaru is “Toga Toga” or “Toga! Toga!” after a scene in the “Animal House” movie. Clip linked here.

toge-img_0321

(Denny finished Pokébeer) Well, I never say that you have to use my names —  I only want to inspire your own creative names.

Pokémon Nicknames: Stufful and Bewear

partofcorocoro9162

Today on “Pokémon Nicknames”, I consider Stufful and Bewear. (Denny knocks Sapporo beer can over, but picks it up quickly with little spillage): Oops … sorry … I’m a klutz, and sometimes have a hard time holding onto items. No I’m not drunk … Oh .. right (Denny in stilted falsetto): Alola … er …ALOLA COUSINS! Today I will suggest nicknames for two cute, cuddly – but DANGEROUS Pokémon.

Be warned … or “Be Ware” – ha ha, because I have a mind … that wanders …

On the Bulbapedia web site it says that Stufful (in Japanese: ヌイコグマ  “Nuikoguma”) is a Normal + Fighting dual-type Pokémon. Stufful is the “Flailing Pokémon” supposedly because it would flail around its cute stuffed-animal-like arms. Many Pokémon fans like to buy plush dolls of their favorite Pokémon. Maybe it is time for a Pokémon that is already a stuffed animal!

does-stufful-have-a-tag

Stufful even has a tag!

Stufful evolves into Bewear (in Japanese: キテルグマ  “Kiteruguma”) at level 27, where it remains a Normal + Fighting dual-type. Beware is the “Strong Arm” Pokémon. Bulbapedia says: “While Bewear may appear friendly, it is actually a very dangerous Pokémon. It must never be approached carelessly, even if it is merely swinging its arms around in a friendly fashion. It shows affection with a fond embrace, but its hugs have incredible force.” The story goes that many trainers have been severely injured, and some were even killed by Beware’s loving hugs.

Stufful is the perfect Pokémon for those of us who love Japanese Popular Culture! Its ears even look like those “headband ears” which are so popular with cosplayers, maid café goers, Japanese schoolgirls and/or the otaku of the Akihabara district of Tokyo.  Cat (neko) ears are probably the most common headband ears, but mouse, fox, bear or other fuzzy animal ears are also common.

cosplayer-with-white-headband-ears

Her cosplay ears are the biggest giveaway that she would love to meet and date a fellow nerd like you!

You should use Tokyo Pop Culture type names for the Pokémon. Names like “Akihabara”, “Shibuya”, or “Harajuku” would be appropriate. I also named one of these bears “Otaku”. “Yuri” or “Yoai” would also be fun, if you enjoy those genres of anime and/or manga.

 stuffbearimg_0302

Stufful is a plush doll, so maybe you could use “Doll Parts” after the song by the 1990s alt-rock band Hole (linked here). Cutesy names like “I Wuv You” , “Cuddles” or “Fuzzy Wuzzy” should also work when you bear evolves. “Huggie Bear” is based on the archtypical and quintesential “pimp” character from the 1970s TV police series “Starsky and Hutch“.

A good name would be “Gyu” or “Gyu Gyu Gyu” which is loosely translated as “hugs” or “squeezes”. It is one of those Japanese words which do not translate directly into English. When you give someone a hug there is that wonderful moment, when the hug “becomes a hug” and the mutual feeling of love is exchanged — Gyu!

Another Japnese pop culture name might be “Moe” which loosely describes affectionate aspects of otaku culture.

The Pokémon pink color is off course very “kawaii” but the bright pink is juxtaposed with dark brown portions of its body.  This combination put me off at first, but I understand it is popular, and I have learned to love it.

stuffbearimg_0295

This color juxtaposition led me to name one of my party Pokémon “PinkAndStink”.

(Denny turns to drinking buddies): You know guys, “the pink” is about the most wonderful thing that there is in this existence. It also is located in very close proximity to “the stink”.  (Gulps) They are both delightful in their own ways … (Sapporo can drops again, but is quickly put upright) … they both have their own unique charms. You may have directed yourself to the pink. You probably spend most of your time there, and the points north, but don’t tell me you have not also explored the stink. There is also that wonderful, sensitive border area, right in between the pink and the stink. You can tell a lot about a lady by how well she manages that marchland … You don’t have to be a conquering hero, but it is a great way to bond with her. You might even end up surprising yourself.

Oh … right … Pokémon names … (Denny raises hand, orders another Sapporo).

fuzzy-wuzzy-img_0319

A Pokémon with Fluffy takes half damage from moves that make contact. It also takes double damage from Fire-type moves. Fire-type moves that make contact will deal regular damage. (Bulbapedia)

Pokémon Nicknames: Bruxish

Alola cousins! (Denny imitating Professor Kukui): “Have you tried the fish tacos?”

bruxishtumblr_o9l93mvilp1ttdkobo1_400

Bruxish (in Japanese: ハギギシリ “Hagigishiri” is a Water and Psychic dual type. Thus far, there are no known evolutionary forms. It is given “Gnash Teeth” as its Pokémon category. Gnash teeth? I can hear Mrs. Sinnoh’s teeth gnashing whenever I am playing Pokémon and I’m supposed to be doing chores and home repair.

I was excited and very interested to see this new Alola region Pokémon. It looks weird, and maybe a little unnatural, but that is what I like about it. Some Pokémon resemble their real animal counterparts a little too much. Bruxish is based on a real life Hawaiian Reef Triggerfish. Bruxish’s wild psychedelic coloration also remind me of a real-life Parrotfish as well. Bruxish’s body is more “head-shaped” than fish-shaped it seems. Its mouth reminds me of the Kissing Fishand and the sharp teeth remind me of a Piranha.

Bruxish has an odd flower-like protuberance on the top of its head. It is this organ which is the source of its psychic power. Bruxish’s full biology is described at the Bulbapedia site linked here.

My old hippie friend thinks that you should catch this fish, dry-cure the protuberance – then SMOKE IT for a really mellow buzz. I disagree. I am anti-drugs for one thing, plus I think that Poké-animals should be treated a little more kosher. They are spiritual beings, and they should not exist merely to be over-harvested, or in order to make us feel good about ourselves… but I digress.

lady-caught-a-triggerfish

I used my psychic powers to nab this fish.

I nicknamed a female Bruxish with “Outstanding” potential “Kiss-Me-Kate” after the famous musical of the same name. Here is a song from the movie version. My Kiss-Me-Kate is a ladyfish with the “Strong Jaw” ability, which enhances her “biting” moves. “Psychic Fangs” is her signature move.

bruxishimg_0286

I named another “RazzleDazzel” because the fish’s coloration may dazzle opponents. It has the “Dazzling” ability, which surprises the enemy and makes the opponents’ “priority moves” useless.

bruxishimg_0289

You could name these fish after famous impressionist artists – “Picassofish” after the painter. I think that “Matisse” would be a good arty name, and would work for males or females. You can think of your favorite artist. I named one “ColorMeGone” after the alt-rock group. You may like “ColorMeBad” rather.

Haruka suggested the name "Fish Taco" I dont know why.

Haruka also suggested the name “Fish Taco” I don’t know why.

I named one toothy fish “Britishsmiles” after an episode of “The Simpsons”. Ralph Wiggims was wary of going to a dentist, and lied about brushing his teeth regularly. The dentist pulled out a photo book titled “The Big Book of British Smiles”. The joke being this book would scare children into taking care of their teeth, so that they would not end up looking like a Cockney prostitute. That humorous clip is LINKED HERE.

british-smiles3d6d8114947f7bfa0ea60dc1c42c501c

Also along the British theme, I named a Bruxish “Brexit” because I just thought the fit the fish. It will beat you, then exit. Of course, the real Brexit will never happen, as Britain’s central government does not want the U.K. to leave the EU and will delay the process until it can be voted down in another election. … and yes, I do digress again …

bruxishimg_0290

The hippie movement and psychedelia thing could be mined for more “SummerOfLove” and other groovy names.”Love + Peace” for example. If only there were some way to get this HKT48 song piped into the White House and the Kremlin at the same time.

Some other names I might suggest, but have not used yet include:

Humuhumu” would be a great (shortened) name for the real triggerfish’s Hawaiian name:  “humuhumunukunukuāpuaʻa”. 

humuhumutriggerfish

The song is LINKED HERE.

Trig” as Bruxish resembles a trigger-fish, although that name sounds a little too macho for such a gay-colored fish.

bruxish-lost-in-translation-1467300164179

Um … I think this was a translation error from the original Japanese Sun Moon anime.

Dragqueen” due to its lip coloration, and arguably the fish resembles a guy wearing makeup. Covered with makeup, but you can still tell it is a guy. They are pretty good about not gnashing there their teeth though. Ahem … you should see what types of images dirty-minded people are posting about Bruxish on Tumblr … and yes, I digress again.

bruxishimg_0280

You have to watch how you pet these Snapper-fish.

Headshop” due to its shape, and its psychedelic coloration. “Bad Acid” as in the quote “remember the time you took that bad acid, and you got up on top of the roof, and said that you were Jesus Christ and that you could fly?”

What … wait … Fish tacos? You mean those are really real, Haruka ? … I always thought “Fish Taco” was just a euphemism.

Pokémon Nicknames: Drilbur and Excadrill

excadrill-hoodie

Photo credit goes to the hoodie maker!

Today, let us drill down and mine more nicknames for Pokémon Black and Pokémon White characters. Drilbur (in Japanese: モグリュー  “Mogurew”) is a Ground-type Pokémon. Drillbur’s category is “Mole Pokémon”. Drilbur was a popular baby form.

mole-1-img_0247

Drilbur evolves into Excadrill when raised to level 31. Excadrill (in Japanese: ドリュウズ “Doryuzu”) is a dual-type Ground and STEEL Pokémon. Excradrill’s category is “Subterrene Pokémon”. (“Subterrene” might actually be a good nickname right there!)

mole-2-img_0248

Drilbur is a mole, so as my mind wandered a bit, and I thought of the “mole” concept used in chemistry.

I named a Drilbur  “6.02 x 10~23” (unfortunately you cannot use exponents in the nickname creator). Oh – but I had to use the upper-case letter “O” in place of zero!  I found out that there is a limit to how many numbers you can use in a nickname. I never thought of it before, but someone could otherwise use a phone number as a name, so it makes sense.

mole_postcard_avagadros_number

Chemistry class? … remember that chick you tutored in Chem 101? Sing it Elvis — “Are you ready for the final solution?”

ec-inspired-chemistry-class

E.C.: “Sparks are flying from electrical pylons … snakes and ladders running up and down the nylons …

“The chemical term “mole” is usually abbreviated as “mol” which saves all kinds of space in scientific writing …

gretchen-mol

Wait — that is American actress Gretchen Mol. Sorry my mind wandered in class again.

Right …  forgive my digression … a mol has a value of 6.022140857(74)×1023 mol−1  — also known as Avagadros Constant. Thus, I have named some Drilburs “Avagadro” or “Avagadro’s #”.

Perhaps you could name your mole after famous people with moles. “De Niro” or “De Niro’s Mole” for example. (Denny is NOT making this up – “Robert De Niro’s Mole” has its own Facebook page, I just looked.) The term “mole” can also mean “Double Agent” in various spy thriller novels. Excadril is a dual-type Pokémon, so why not?

Whack-a-Mole” could be a funny name .. or maybe just “Whack“.

whack-a-mole-model

Everyone loves whacking to that arcade game!

Ahem … moles are similar to “shrews” which are another type of burrowing rodent. I named a female Drilbur “Tammy Shrew” after “The Taming of the Shrew” by Shakespeare. Ha. William Shakespeare — come -on Bill, don’t say that. There is no part of a lady that looks like a furry rodent.

tos-stephen-boxer-and-michell

If he was actually trying to tame her shrew, he sure missed way too high.

I sometimes name a female Drilbur “Lovely Rita” after the Beatles song “Lovely Rita Meter Maid“. Drilbur looks like it has a sash across the chest, as in a crossing-guard or meter-maid’s uniform. As Paul sang: “With the bag across her shoulder, it made her look a little like a military man … wank, wank, wonk, wonk”. I used “Edward S.” after the movie Edward Scissorhands, but then realized it was pretty stupid.

Excadrill names I have used include “Excedrin” after the headache medicine. Yup, an Excedrin and a Gatorade will set you up for a another big lunch after you have had a hard night.

excedrin-meme-baby

Ha Ha. This angry little guy was made into a meme. Ha.

I sometimes use “Roto-Rooter” after the famous plumbing company. Seriously, they can use that burrowing drill to unclog any hairy plumbing mess.

scene-other-woman-plumber

If you have seen the movie, you know that pipes are about to be cleaned.

These moles like to burrow, so I was thinking the more literary spelling “Burroughs” after author Edgar Rice Burroughs. The name “Furrows” or “Good Furrows” is elegant, I think and inspires fantasies about farming.

I have used “Drillbits” for cute little Drilbur, and “Drill Press” for the more intense drilling that the larger Excadrill can do. “BlackNDecker” might be a good name for a drill, as the Black and Decker company makes tools.

Pokémon Nicknames: Blitzle and Zebstrika

Credit goes to the artist.

Credit goes to the artist.

Blitzle (in Japanese: シママ  “Shimama”) is an Electric-type Pokémon. The little electric zebra evolves into Zebstrika (in Japanese: ゼブライカ “Zebraika”) at level 27 where it remains an Electric-only type. There is no Mega-Evolution form as of yet.

zeb blitz

All thanks to the artist : )

Blitzle and Zebstrika were always among my favorite Pokémon. The first Pokémon game which my son taught me to play was Black/White, where I played the White Version. Zebras are colored perfectly for a game called Black and White of course.  I have went back and played all the series now — my son picks one version, then I always get the other.

My female Zebstrika was my favorite Pokémon on my team. I named her “Mary Ellen” which is a name that does not have anything to do with zebras, or lightning. Instead I named her after a very strong, capable, and dependable woman I knew.

Credit goes only to the artist.

Credit goes only to the artist.

Generally, you want to choose “Z” words like “Zenith“. “Ladyland” refers to Jimi Hendrix’s “Electric Ladyland” the name of his studio and one of his greatest records.

zeb IMG_0208

If your Zebstrika has the “Lightning Rod” or “Motor Drive” abilities, perhaps use the name: “Start-Me-Up” after the Rolling Stones song. On that note, “Spark Plug” might be good for a little Blitzle. “Sparky” is cute, especially since the little one can learn “Spark” attack.

zeb IMG_0207

I thought about naming one “Greased Lightning” after the song from the musical “Grease”, but there are too many letters. Maybe just call it “Greased L“. Oy.

zeb IMG_0206

Does anyone remember drinking Zima? It zucked. I thought it tasted like Noxema. Ha Ha (1980s joke., copyright Denny). Actually, Zima is still sold in Japan by the Miller Brewing Company!

I know what you are thinking, you thought I was going to suggest a French-sounding zebra name like “Zee-Bra“, and then show various types of Zebra-patterned underwear.

Oh, how little you must think of me.

You might want to use Electric moves like Thunderbolt, Shockwave or Discharge. Alternatively, if you plan to super-train a higher Attack rather than Special Attack, I suggest the following — but Wild Charge has recoil, and thus should be partially replenished by a held item such as a Shell-Bell or Leftovers.

zeb IMG_0209

I was very happy to catch a SHINY Zebstrika at a Mirage Spot in Pokémon Omega Ruby. It is dark purple in color.

purple shiny zebstrika

I named him “Ultraviolent” as a play on Ultra-Violet (purple).  Later, I changed his name to “Purple Haze” which was the name of a Jimi Hendrix song (and was also the name of the blotter-acid popular with the burn-outs in my old high school).

Credit goes to this lovely cosplayer and her photographer.

Credit goes to this lovely cosplayer and her photographer.

When you hear thunder and see lightning, does that mean that the Gods are bowling? Perhaps use a name like “Striker“!

Lightning related terms like “Dart-Leader”, “Strokes”  or “Thunderclap” might be fun if you are a meteorology geek. Zebstrika can learn  the TM “Flash“, so you could name it “Hot Flash” or some variation. Perhaps use something Thor-related if you are a Marvel geek.

I did not find a lot of names I liked from The Name Rater’s Site (link here). However, I did like the suggestions “Zapidash“, “Haywire“, and “Blitzkrieg“. Zapidash is a cute variation on Rapidash. I would like to see a Rapidash/Zebstrika or a Ponyta/Blitzle on a double-battle team.

Blitzkrieg translates from German as “Lightning War”. The term refers to the German armies which quickly smashed into their neighboring countries during World War II. Along the lines of the WW II German Blitzkrieg reference, perhaps another historic name could be “Sieg Sieg” or some variation. (Note to readers: Please only make Nazi references if you have an academic interest in history.)

doubleboltsdesign

The twin lightning bolts of the Nazi SS. Credit goes to … oh, shit, they can sue me.

The SS Bolts are a hated symbol. The twin bolts have made their way into some stylized calligraphy in pop culture however (ex. The KISS logo, among others). The symbol is derived from the SchutzStaffel (SS) of Nazi Germany. You really have to be careful with your historical references, as there are so many politically-correct jackasses out there (which includes 90% of all college students, and 99% of all college professors).

What electrifying name would you suggest for a zebra? Please comment!

Pokémon Nicknames (REDUX): Mime Jr. and Mr. Mime

Mime Jr. (in Japanese: マネネ  “Manene”) is a dual-type PSYCHIC & FAIRY baby Pokémon. Mime Jr. evolves into Mr. Mime when leveled up while knowing the move Mimic. (Source: Bulbapedia). I don’t mind a male or female Mime Jr. …

mimejr IMG_0226

… but I don’t like FEMALE Mr. Mimes — as that does not make any sense!!!

mimejr IMG_0227

I like to name Mime Jr. something cute, like Floppsy, Floozy, Fapper, etc.

mimejr IMG_0225

Let us see … now if you have a MISTER Mime … what name might you choose?

tablet rdrr

I nicknamed the clown-mime Pokemon “Mr. Mime” R.D.R.R. meaning the way someone might laugh “Har Dee Har Har”.  Mr. Mime is a dual-type PSYCHIC-FAIRY Pokémon (prior to Kalos it was a pure Psychic Pokémon).   Oddly, there are both Male and Female Mr. Mimes. There is no difference in appearance. Gamefreak really should have at least made the hair look different.  It says at the Pokemon Bulbapedia website that Mr. Mime is a “Barrier” Pokemon. The name is “Barrierd” in Japanese — バリヤード   — but I cannot find any Japanese reference for that term.

I guess the joke is on me – HAR DEE HAR HAR !!!

Mr. Mime in his latest (Kalos) animation is a mime-trapped-in-a-box, thus is the barrier? … or are his Psychic moves form a barrier?

Mr_mime_art

I am partly basing the nickname on a line used in the “Bart the Genius” episode of the Simpsons.

bart rdrr

Fourth-grader Bart Simpson cheats in class by switching math aptitude tests with his classmate Martin (the genius). Bart is transferred to a school for gifted children, where he is in way over his head.

Teacher: “So y = r cubed over 3. And if you determine the rate of change in this curve correctly, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised. “

Everyone in the class laughs except for Bart who is confused, and rightly so.

Teacher: “Don’t you get it, Bart? Derivative dy = 3 r squared dr over 3, or r squared dr, or r dr r “

I thought of names like “Bozo” or “Krusty” but those are both way too obvious. I’ve never been good at using a Mr. Mime and all the “tricky moves” it can learn anyway. When I am battling through a Pokemon game-story, I am not usually battling a human opponent.  I tend to use Pokemon that just attack, attack, attack. If I played more linked-battles against another humans, I might learn more of Mr. Mime’s trickster ways.

mr__mime_time

Furthermore, I am a little weird-ed out by “humanoid-type” Pokemon. Pokemon are not people, and I believe that it is wrong for Pokemon to take human form.  They should not appear to us in that manner.

I know what you are going to say:

“Denny, aren’t you just going to show a cute girl in a Mr. Mime Pokemon cosplay?”

Mr Mime pretty girl cosplay

Hmm … maybe it wouldn’t be so bad to be trapped in a pantomime’s box …

Oh, you know me all too well. … what is the name for your clown? Please comment!
