Faces of Harajuku

The last few years I developed a fascination for the Asian culture in a visual sense. Not so much the reasons why or if there is a philosophy surrounding it but just the quirky, cartoonisch, approach to things. One might even call it 'New surrealism' or 'Pop surrealism'. Like I've posted before this I stumbled upon and surprised me in a good way.

Look at how they alter there appearance to look more, uhmmm manga? Look at the eyes, the bright colors, I've always been a sucker for bright colors. I've never been tempted to present myself in such a way and still it intrigues me.Just take a look and enjoy! And for another gallery go here!

Tickle me Elmo 2.0


The 'I Read of it' concept

Okay here is a interesting thought about media and the buzz surrounding a hype. At least that's my interpretation. Read it, it's good for you!

Niigata Bust Pudding

Well, in my almost daily search for inspiration, ready to view the world in a different way, I just happen to stumble on something that pleased my naughty mind. I like, well I love everything about the female body, all its curves, somehow I get this intense smile on my face just thinking about them =). Just like Homer Simpson I can't stop and have to giggle.

Today I found some pics on Flickr posted by a person with the Nickname SirPurple, it's a pudding disguised as female breast, please don't take this the wrong way but I just thought this is every mans dream. That's it, this my highlight of the day something that made me smile and made think that those Japanese folk sure now how to enjoy there pudding.

The most fun part is that the print on the packaging says something like "please eat me gently". This is priceless!

A positive note!

I've been posting some sad posting the last few days about my love-sickness and love stinks articles. I would also like to post a positive article, that this little drama hasn't made me bitter. So, just for you, a little dramatic comback as I declare my love for love.

A personal note!

So I have a bad case (is there any other?) of love-sickness and I'm wondering what's purpose it has. Really think about it, you or the other breaks-up the relationship and you feel bad. What's the whole purpose in that mechanism?

I understand that when falling in love, you have the urge to be with the other and make lots of love. That, I'm not a specialist, could be because our nature is to reproduce. Having intercourse with each other a few times a day should take care of that, right?

Now, in that light, why does leaving a person hurt so much. I mean, even when you know its the better thing to do? It's weird, isn't it? So far I've found different kinds of love sicknesses on the web.

  1. People who cannot cope with the intensity of love, have been destabilised by falling in love.
  2. People who suffer on account of their love being unrequited.
I guess I'm in the latter and I chose to be so. The thing is that, I'm a person that goes by his gut feeling, hence the love sickness, but chose because of previous experiences (I'm a veteran) not to relive such drama's again. Still it's feels like crap.

I thought that being 31 would change some things, besides knowing what's coming next it feels just as crappy. I guess by the time I'm 80 I would still the same thing. Did this article change anything for me? It didn't and I didn't expect it would. So I'm off to the pub and try to drink my sorrows away with a friend of mine LOL.


Frikkin hilarious button!

Love Stinks. Yeah, yeah!

To lessen my troubles
I stopped hanging out with vultures
And empty saviours like you
I wish I had a nickel for every miracle
That you easily tricked me into

For the depraved only!

Dirty Sanchez, consists of a group of friends humiliating, hurting, almost killing each other and making the guys from Jackass look like Teletubbies in the process. It 's tasteless what they do, but I still watch it, just as with Jackass. They have a television show on MTV Europe, it's fun to see how lowlifes getting payed while being lowlifes. On the 22nd they will have there self titled movie debut. Look at the trailer an be prepaired to be disgust.

Honeysuckle Rose

I remember listening for the first time to Eva Cassidy and couldn't have imagined before that anyone could sing so beautiful and freely. I've bought a live recording (always live people, I like live), was blown away again. Then I heard her sing this song, so beautiful and meaningful. A small, sweet and vulnerable confession of ones love for the other sang by an angel. Okay, the way I bring this song is really really sweet, but still.

A golden voice

Susan Tedeschi on Austin City Limits. Derek Trucks his wife sure knows the blues, I've seen them both on the 24th of may in London this year and she impressed me with her raw and Bonnie Raitt kind of vocals.

W+K 12 does Good

I've been reading blogs intensively the last few months especially the ones about advertising and such. Just the other day I came across the blog of W+K Amsterdam. They posted this short movie on there blog to show how they work. It's beautiful to see how they love there job and try to get to the essence of things.


I'm not a tech nerd.

Okay, I'm not a tech freak or whatever, but this is pretty cool. Eventhough I don't have any idea yet what you could do with it that would have a huge impact, it is a cool invention.

Ahhhhhh CRAP!!!

So, why this title. Well it seems that the coolest solo guitarist in the world has left most rock 'n roll rock 'n roll band in the world. After the departure of the longtime keyboard player Eddie Harsch, Marc Ford also left the Black Crowes. Now, if the boys (Robinson Bros.) make the same mistake as the last time Marc left/thrown out. Then we can pack our bags and start listening to another band, because he is virtually irreplaceable.

Updated on 2006-07-09
This just in "In a statement released by his publicist, Ford said he left the Crowes due to concerns that his health and all the difficult work he has done to gain his longest period of sobriety ever was in jeopardy while touring." Still crap, but admirable, I mean take care dude, maybe I'll catch you with some other band.

A Simpsons classic, enjoy!


What do you do when you like, lets say, action movies. And what do you do when you have al lot of time to spare. And what if you have a digital video camera and a bunch of friends with the same interests. You make a short movie of course. With invisible guns and a robot. Enjoy this production!

The paradox of choice!

Besides music I haven't written much about the line of work I'm in and all it's mandatory reading, looking, smelling of all things in life as we know it. Here's a video about choices, about the more choices you have, the more it gives you the feeling of freedom. The downside is that all those choices and/or possibilities actually make you choose less.
