Baby Milo Versus Kubrick

I had lunch with Nadine of Tokyo Shoes earlier this week at the very cool Cube Zen in Aoyama, and she gave me this little horse from the Kubrick and Baby Milo collaboration. Gotta get me a soldier or a general to ride him.

Update (16/08/13): The photo is unfortunately no longer available, and I sure wish I still had that figure.

Douche Magazine

I’m waiting for my copy of the first issue of Douche Magazine. I can’t say much about the magazine before reading it but since teefactory.com is featured it’s gotta be good. Except in North America you will only find the magazine at me jolly favourite store in Paris; Colette.

TIFF

A couple of articles appeared in yesterday’s Daily Yomiuri covering the Tokyo International Film Festival, one covering the festival in general, and one taking a look at the Fantastic Film Festival part of it.

By the way, this is the first time I’ve actually read articles from that paper online. As of yesterday I’ve cancelled my subscription, which I’ve had for my whole time in Japan. I just started feeling like I wasn’t reading most it anymore, and that what I wanted to read I could get online (at their own website, as well as those of other papers, like The Japan Times and the Mainichi Daily News). The only thing I’m really going to miss is the English TV schedule. Now I need to train myself to read the Japanese schedule in TOKYO WALKER.

Boingboing.net Down

For those wondering what’s up with boingboing.net (one of my fave blogs on the net), the following message by Cory Doctorow was posted at Joi Ito’s site:

Boing Boing has been down for a couple of days. We’re having server problems and working on them — I hope to be up in a day or so again, but it’s exacerbated by my crazy travel schedule.

Please direct your friends to this note, and ask for their forebearance in sending email asking what’s up with Boing Boing. I’m getting several hundred of these a day, and it’s gotten so that answering those messages is actively interfering with my efforts to reestablish service.

In the meantime, we’re still blogging, and the mailblog still works:

Movies on GB Advance

Dunno if this is old news, but still news to me. “AM3 Adapter Allows Viewing of Movies on Game Boy Advance. AM3 (Japan) announced that it will release an adapter and movie card set to allow viewing of movies on the Game Boy Advance. Both Anime and standard movies can be viewed with the adapter and movie card combination. Several movies and anime will be available in November and December, including episodes of Conan (a popular Japanese anime/manga). The adapter and movie cards will be available in November for around 3,800 Yen.” from Akibalive.com

California is burning!

A different, more beautiful perspective on the fires in California. Totally terminating the state. Check out a bigger picture here

Speaking about beauty. Check out the semi-new video by White Stripe; Hardest button to button. I like conceptual videos following the beat of the music. Cornelius seems to succeed with this quite often.
