ASIMO, Devourer of (economic) souls!

Sure, all these people are like “Oh, we love ASIMO”, but no one was shown to step up a say “Dat robot ‘terk ‘ur jerbs!”.


Beautify your Desktop with a shot from Shinjuku

This is a really beautiful shot from some random street in Shinjuku.  While the background is a bit blurry and mostly unrecognizable, I can’t help but wonder if I have been through this area the last time I was in Tokyo.  The downside is that the setup does require a few apps to organize everything, but I still plan on trying it out tonight.

PETA Calls Out Nintendo For Fur-Wearing Mario

Personally, I think this is a little silly since I kinda envision it as Mario magically turning into a Racoon or Tanooki, not skinning one to use for its ‘magical’ powers.  I guess PETA will do whatever they want to get people on their side.  I couldn’t bring myself to beat this game.

PETA Calls Out Nintendo For Fur-Wearing Mario.

Update:  Kotaku is reporting that PETA released a statement yesterday apologizing and saying that this was just a tongue-in-cheek joke in order to bring light to the great problem of the fur industry.  Ha!  That’ll teach them to try discrediting Mario!  lol.

Back on the Shinkansen track to Japan!

Well, not literally… heh (but that would be pretty awesome!).  Anyways, I just got an email from my recruiting company informing me my application is being processed again and they sent me my pre-visa paperwork to fill out and sent in to their Tokyo office.  I want to start filling it out RIGHT now, but I should probably get some sleep…  Tomorrow though!
