I saw this commercial and thought “whoa!” He must be on some hard times if he’s the Stanley Steemer guy. Well, I guess if I was him, I’d do it. It’s money and exposure.Read More

Here’s a mashup of the songs Lady Gaga – Bad Romance and Journey – Separate Ways by Danalyn. Awesome stuff. You’re gonna love it! Yes, the first 20 seconds of the video is supposed to be dark.
Perhaps you remember the video where I show people how to eat ramen? I thought I’d revive it again, and plus take a poll on how you eat ramen or somen (cold soba noodles). I just wonder how many of you slurp when you eat your ramen. While so many people might consider this rude, because of cultural differences, it’s not entirely so rude in Japan. I do want to point out that you probably don’t need to be obnoxiously loud, or purposely loud when slurping. There’s a difference in eating the ramen and just plain being rude (i.e. mocking). We don’t need that! Of course, in your own home, you can do anything you want. I just want to point out this is in public. Here’s the video:
Finally, here’s a poll you can vote on whether or not you slurp when eating your ramen.
Recently the Washington State Department of Health started running these commercials about real people who are writing letters to themselves, starting with “Dear Me…” and stating what’s going on in their lives and why smoking is slowing them down. The whole concept is as simple as this:
No one can make me quit but me.
This is so true. I’m one of the lucky ones. As an ex smoker of about 20+ years, at the height of my smoking, I was smoking about 2 packs a day. I quit because I got the flu and every time I tried to smoke a cigarette, I couldn’t stop coughing. So eventually after a week of being sick, I just didn’t smoke anymore. But honestly, I know how hard it is to quit because I tried. I’ve tried so many times I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve tried. I’m so glad I did.
My dad has emphysema and COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). So just watching my dad carry around an oxygen tank everywhere he goes is reminder enough to why it’s bad to smoke. Smoking is bad. But you know, no one can make you quit but you. Maybe you should write a letter to yourself and be objective about it and say what you’ve been wanting to say all this time. Maybe you’ll realize how much you should be quitting.
If you want to see one of the commercials, the video is after the bump. I think this one really hit close to home.
WoW’s greatest fan sings – Oh my this is hilarious. I’m sure he’s getting plenty of anti-celebrity status at this point. LOLRead More

Ok, Meesh and I saw this commercial today and wow, this girl is so damn cute. I had to share it, even though I’m probably shouldn’t be thinking about posting anything. Look for a post in the future at Being Diabetic for an explanation of what went on the past few days.
My friend sent this to me this morning. “I put my apple into my peach”, holy crap that’s funny.
I remember way back when, living in Japan, we’d heard of this thing called MTV. We were astonished they finally made a channel dedicated just to music videos. So we had some friends send a VHS tape of some of the music videos to us in Japan. It was awesome.
The first video I saw, was Pretty Woman by Van Halen. I thought the video was incredibly hilarious and was just awesome. I loved it. I thought this was a wonderful thing that MTV did, and playing music videos all day and night with the occasional music news was great.
Of course, as we all know now, they don’t really play any videos anymore and instead have all those reality shows which just embarrasses a lot of people. But I digress.
I distinctly remember standing in my friend’s living room watching this video with a few friends. I think all of us were pretty impressed. My friend who had the video had just moved to Japan, so he got to see music videos and the real MTV already so he wasn’t too impressed.
Here is the original video, hopefully you enjoy it! Remember, this video was banned at one point in time!
 The youtube video was made so embedding was disabled so you’ll have to watch it.
So I found this video while doing a search for other J-pop stuff, and thought it was pretty damn cool. It’s from 2006 so it’s a tad bit old, but the bands are still some pretty cool J-pop stars, even today, and I thought it was pretty awesome. Here’s the description of the video:
J-POP 101 2006 at Anime Expo: This video was created as an introduction to Japanese pop culture. It was aired on July 1st, 2006, 7:30 P.M. in the Anaheim Convention Center. The panel was hosted by Linzer Dinzer and myself, Kestelia I hope you like it :)
The only thing I didn’t like about this video was they left out a couple of J-pop stars I thought should show up in there, in particular, SMAP and Koda Kumi. You might recall that Koda Kumi sang the original songs for Final Fantasy X-2 (which were unfortunately translated later on to english). But anyways, I still loved her versions, because well, she’s pretty awesome. SMAP is just one of the most popular bands in Japan, I think, and they’ve all been in a variety of Japanese Dorama. I love their stuff. Usually if I see them starring in a dorama, I will watch it. Usually.
So I’ve included a video by both SMAP and Koda Kumi for your enjoyment. You can determine if you like them and possibly become fans too. Video after the bump.
It seems like everyone has to make some kind of video of Beyonce’s Single Ladies. Even the TV show Glee. I have to say some of them are pretty damn entertaining. I’ve put together some of the videos of which I thought were the best. The first one is from Glee, where the cast dances to the song Single Ladies. I thought this was quite the classic here.
The second video is a kind of meshed together version of Beyonce’s video and the Saturday Night Live skit with Justin Timberlake and Beyonce. They can’t put the entire skit up there mainly because of copyright issues. Which to me is kinda lame, but hey, I don’t make the rules. Videos are both after the bump. Enjoy!
