Cutie Honey the movie RULES!.
I went to see Cutie Honey today as a friend had recommended it. I went with no expectations and was totally blown away. One of the best Japanese live action comedy movies I’ve ever seen.
Cutie Honey is a very famous Japanese Anime character from quite a while back. I believe a few animated movies based on her have made it to the states but not much of the original series.
Slashdot pointed to a Frontline documentary called “The Way the Music Died“. I went to go watch it but it wasn’t up at the time so I looked over the list of stuff they have online and ended up watching “The Merchants of Cool“, a very good program about how nearly everything kids are into today is manufactured or promoted by big business.

I found this place walking home from clubbing. If I leave the clubs early I have to take a cab and for some reason, I guess to save a little money, I walk over to NHK and catch one over there. This place is in-between and I happened to pass it one day. It looked interesting so I took a picture to remind myself to try it out.
