Fun Humor

Photography and daschunds don’t always mix + plus 1 more

I came across this video on a photography site that I was browsing and as one who has recently started in photography and has always loved dogs, I thought it was too funny not to share!


Also came across this music clip via Stuckincustoms – a violinist (Charles Yang) and a ukulele player (Jake Shimabukuro) duet. From what I understand, they had just met the day before, but they really mesh well together and look like they’re having a ton of fun! (you can see at the end that the violinist has literally shredded his bowstrings!)


Giant robot/ball/snake/man-thing…

I don’t really know what this movie is about, and I have no idea what is happening, but it looks so ridiculously over the top that I’m going to find a way to watch it somehow. 😀



Joe Wong on C-SPAN

Though C-SPAN usually makes me fall asleep, this gave me a few chuckles (don’t take the subtitles too literally – they’re autogenerated by a computer and some of the words just don’t make sense)


Matrix Ping-pong

This had my brother and I in stitches!

Matrix Karate was also quite funny. 🙂


I’m surfing le “toile d’araignée mondiale”!

I can’t believe it’s already been a month since my last post… I think this is the longest I’ve gone without writing anything.

Not much to report on my end, though since I’ve been on early shift for the last few weeks, I’ve been pretty tired – it’s just not that much fun to wake up at 0530.  At least the holidays are coming up!  The office closes from the 31st to January 3rd, and we’re back to work on the 4th.  Not a very lengthy holiday, but it will be nice to have even those 4 days off.

M’brain is a little fuzzy from sleepiness so I think I’ll end this here, but before I go, here’s a link to an article that had me laughing out loud (especially funny for those who speak/read French, but that’s not a prereq)

The French Get Lost in the Clouds Over a New Term in the Internet Age

Podcasting = “diffusion pour baladeur”?

Snowboarding = “saut acrobatique sur tremplin de neige”???

But my favorite was probably “toile d’araignée mondiale” (World wide web)

Make sure you read the side blurbs too! 🙂


Don’t forget to fear the fuzzy!

This was the one post that was lost during the hacking attempt last month – sorry it took so long to restore it! 😛

Yellow Submarine, Purple Submarine…

I know it’s been almost a week since my last post, but honestly, it’s not for lack of material. 🙁

I think the biggest thing that makes me lazy about posting is the fact that I want to include pictures.  I have the pictures, but first I need to copy them over from camera to computer.  Then I need to go through them and weed out the blurry and boring ones.  Next I need to resize them.  After that, I need to create a gallery folder in WordPress, upload the pictures into that gallery and, if I’m really feeling in the mood, caption them all.

I think you’ll notice that my recent posts have been sadly lacking in captions. :p

Yes, I know it’s not a big deal, but… energy lacks when I get home from work, so…hurrmm.  Well, I will post some more soon.

In the meantime, because this video clip has not been viewed enough times and because I’ve somehow woken up this morning with the Beatle’s “Yellow Submarine” song on endless repeat in my head (and I don’t even like the Beatle’s!!!), I give you…

Food & drinks

Eat your hambugers if you want blond hair!

I bought a TV very recently and though I mostly use it to watch US TV shows that I’ve…”obtained” *cough-ahem*, I do occasionally switch it on to see what’s showing on Japanese TV (the 7 or so channels that are broadcast for free).  Most times, the programs consists of sports, news, and extremely bizarre-if-not-downright-ridiculous TV talk shows.  So I don’t watch Japanese TV all that much.

One night though, there was a program in English! 😯 I couldn’t stay up too late (early shift at work the next day) but I did spend a few minutes watching the show, which happened to be a discussion between a Japanese and a Westerner on a new (for me) Japanese word – Y?shoku.

Essentially a “redefining” of Western food by the Japanese, Yoshoku includes such staples as “Omurice“, “Curry Rice“, “Spaghetti Napoletan”, and “Hambagu”.

I could write more on this, but I came across an excellent article available at the NYTimes on this very topic (and also explains the subject of my post). 🙂

I rarely look through and see what Akismet catches, but I noticed today that 16 comments had been flagged as spam and decided out of curiosity to skim through them and see what had gotten caught – the results were definitely good for a chuckle and I thought I’d post them here for posterity. 😛

For some reason, my “Testing” post generated the most comments – 9 to be precise.  For a post only containing 27 words, I get spam along the lines of:

Cheap Viagra Online: Good article, lots of intersting things to digest. Very informative
Ventego: Interesting and informative. But will you write about this one more?
Babafisa: what a lengthy and in depth article but full of useful information

For my “A trip to Izu” post, I got a couple, but my favorite was:

Npoet.ru: Say I freeze meat in January. The package has an expiration date of February. When I thaw it in June, why doesn’t it remember immediately that it should have gone bad four months ago?

And last but not least, for my “Minami-Senju Matsuri” post:

Zashkaser: Wow, must have been a terrifying experience! I’m glad both you and Ashley were ok, and that nothing got stolen.I hoped you gace the superheroes a good tip
