Unclear on the concept…

Mecha-musume: you’re doing it wrong.

Dear Hello!Project Costumer Designers,

Does the carpet match the drapes?


Clickbait jailbait

Clickbait spammy ad network Taboola keeps showing this to me (the Mill Valley bit is poor geolocation), and every time I see it, I think the rule they’re referring to is: kidnapped teens must be securely handcuffed while vehicle is in motion.

I thought everyone knew that, but maybe they don’t teach it in Drivers Ed any more?

My Anime Things

With apologies to Rodgers and Hammerstein…

🎶 🎶 🎶 🎶
Mech pilot teams filled with busty young lasses,
Tsundere maids wearing under-rim glasses,
Alien catgirls all tied up with strings,
These are a few of my anime things.

White cotton panties exposed in the sunlight,
Magical girls fighting monsters by moonlight,
Angel and demon girls spreading their wings,
These are a few of my anime things.

Robot girls, wrench wenches, girls-next-door, witches,
Monster girls, pirate girls, stuck-up rich bitches,
Elves, fox girls, goddesses, co-ed hot springs,
These are a few of my anime things.

When real life bites,
Rejection stings,
And I’m feeling sad,
I download a torrent of anime things,
And then I don’t feel so bad.
🎶 🎶 🎶 🎶

Song of the week?

Between the travel ban, the Janus decision, and Justice Kennedy’s retirement, we’ve got a riot on the Left, a party on the Right, and a bunch of Libertarians wandering around in a daze.

In idle moments, I find my brain trying to come up with replacement lyrics for a song that has enough… energy.

I’ll spare you for now…


Ad on just now, suitably modified:

On Context…

Just stumbled across a hilariously-incorrect translation in the Pixiv tags file I’m using: 黒パン (kuro-pan) as “Rye_Bread”.

Google it, and you will in fact find pictures and recipes featuring dark rye and pumpernickel.

Pixiv it, and you’ll find black panties. 😄

Get Swoke!

My parents are on a stuff-eliminating binge as part of their move into a new place, resulting in a number of rather surprising packages arriving at my house. Clearly I come by my packrat ways honestly.

This never-used gem turns a 14-inch wok into a tea smoker. The company still exists and still sells woks, but Google suggests that I may be the only one in the world with an honest-to-gosh Swoke Kit.

I’m pretty sure the included wood chips and tea leaves have lost their flavor since 1983, though. 😜
