Tuna Eye for the Gaijin Guy
This just screams “EAT ME!”
“I was at the grocery store and I got the urge to eat something new. I looked around and I didn’t really see much until I found a food that could look back. It was only a hundred yen, which is less than a buck, so I figured I’d give it a whirl. It had a sticker on it that said that it should be cooked, but I didn’t really know how to cook it. I tried to find stuff online, but there aren’t a lot of English webpages devoted to eating fish eyes, so I just decided to boil it.”
Tineye helped track the source of that image of culinary goodness. Jesse hunts for awesome things to eat, eats them and describes the experience.
Update 3 May 2010: This just in from Planet Ross – a matching set!
Now we can watch Avatar in 3D through fish eye lenses! Yay!
The Original Pointer Sisters
Plastic face protection from snowstorms. Canada, Montreal, 1939, and they were apparently available in two sizes, regular and deluxe. For some reason, this comes to mind. G’head. Click it.
Too Many Things Are Wrong Here.
Hmm. Exposed in an unfinished particleboard Kybo with a tile floor, wearing a bikini under her clothes, hiding behind empty beer bottles, surrounded by cases of Lucky Light, and, um, well, I dunno, Babs, but it sure looks like Texas to me. I can’t even guess what’s in the box to her left.
What’s really odd is that I found this image on a Russian website.

This Is Only A Test.
Fellow Netizens, my friend Cbullitt of Soylent Green alerted me to an internet-wide blog protest in response to the Censorship of the cable cartoon show “South Park.” The image above, with permission from the designer Chris Muir, is scheduled to show up throughout the blogosphere at midnight tonight. Cbullitt wrote:
“I’m not an artist or Cartoonist, but Chris Muir is and Trey Parker and Matt Stone are. And Theo Van Gough was. Muir, whose work you see above, obviously does not ascribe to the dictum displayed in the cowardice of Comedy Central, the EU, and the U.S. Government under the last four administrations, namely: Feeding the crocodile in hopes that it will eat you last.”
To be truthful, I’ve never seen an episode of “South Park” although I understand its popularity due to its irreverent humor. The recent imposition of domestic sharia law on the writers of “South Park” for a joke involving the Prophet Muhammed is inexcusable in the Land of the Free and the Home of the First Amendment.
Let’s celebrate our First Amendment Rights before we lose them. Continue reading “This Is Only A Test.”

Saturday Matinee – A Baboon, The Baboons, The Guana Batz, The Aquabats, The Skatalites
How to get a baboon to tell you where the water is in the Kalahari. Amazing. [Found here.]
The logical follow up to that video is The Baboons‘ “Drinkin’ Gasoline.” (Don’t laugh, they were on Walker, Texas Ranger, and if Mr. N says they’re awesome then they ARE awesome.)
The logical follow up to that video is more Rockabilly. Here are the Guana Batz with “Streetwise.” Following the Guana Batz we have:
The Aquabats! Here’s a live version of “Fashion Zombies.” One last one before we go:
The Skatalites‘ rock steady ska with “Lawless Street.” Have a great weekend folks, see y’all tomorrow.

I’d just add a huge rearview mirror so I could jump before the Amtrak nails me. And a cooler.
