Pacman-san. (Image, worksafe, and I wish the watermark were a little more clear so I could see who did it and where to find more of their stuff.)

10:28 am

cerusee links to roundtable criticism at The Hooded Utilitarian of Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou. Very interesting!

(And I got a link out of it to an article about why the movie Amelie isn't all it's cracked up to be. [short version - whitewashed France, minus immigrants.])

12:13 pm - *dies laughing*

Full of linkblogging today! (It's spring break at work - everybody's moving more slowly.)

wintersweet links to a photo on Flickr titled Letter to the Queen of Chittaur, a spin on a historical event. Go to wintersweet's post for details on that.

02:17 pm - P.S.

Small migraine. Went home from work. Have recently been taking Relpax at work and staying, mostly because low on sick leave, but decided to go home today - not like I was getting anything done at work anyway. :)

Kitten approves, as he thinks he's been low on snuggling time.



Sometimes I really love humanity, especially when it straps LEDs to sheep. Via marith.

09:18 pm - Yokai night!

Three things about yokai make a post, right?

First, I posted some time back about Pandemonium and Parade: Japanese Monsters and the Culture of Yokai, by Michael Dylan Foster, which is a scholarly look at the phenomenon of yokai, or spirits/monsters from Japan.Read more...Collapse )

Second, a couple of weeks ago I was in the bookstore stocking up on later volumes of Naruto for reread_no_jutsu, when I came across a manga I'd never heard of called Yokaiden 1, by Nina Matsumoto. Read more...Collapse )

Thirdly, I have the blog Hot Fictional GUys on my Bloglines blogroll, and I've been saving this show for a rainy day. Back in January, HFG posted a tribute to the guys of Natsume Yuujinchou, a show about yokai currently airing in Japan. Read more...Collapse )

Fourth in my list of three things is a manga I bought a while back and never got around to posting about. Ghost Slayers Ayashi Volume 1 Read more...Collapse )

Fifth in my increasingly-inaccurately-named list of three things is Antique Gift Shop, volume 7. (no spoilers)Collapse )

And now I'm going to go watch episode 2 of Natsume Yuujinchou

* Which has SOLD OUT to THE MAN in order not to get totally sued, which I can't blame them for, and thus brings us cool LEGAL anime now. I shall have to figure out where I left off in watching Bleach and start making googly eyes at my f-list, since I can't get it through Crunchyroll anymore. :)
