Hypnotism

Posted in asian people, film, NYT linking, tubes with tags , on April 7, 2010 by John

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Take a look at this clip without the commentary first. It’s absolutely hypnotic. Fine filmmaking. Mother is the name of the movie and its just now getting a wider release. From what I’ve read, it seems like the film does a good job defying all your expectations. Sadly, I haven’t seen it yet, but come on, just look at that.

This is a handy little app to see where it’s playing by you. Enjoy.

So the new Asobi Seksu album isn’t fantastic or anything, but I still like it a lot.  Then again, you already knew that I liked this kind of music. I also just learned that they live right by my apartment. You can get it here. It is not my link. As for the casual sex tag, it is fitting this time.  Asobi Seksu is colloquial Japanese for “casual sex.”

The Korean Candidate

Two Items:

Many young democrats will try to ‘ride the top of the ticket,’ getting a bounce because they’re on the same ballot as Barack Obama.  This is a hallowed political tradition in the U.S.  In Brazil, the tradition calls for putting whatever name you want to call yourself on the ballot.  Six politicians figured ‘Barack Obama’ was a popular enough name and are running as Barack Obama.

Kim Jong Il has maybe had a stroke and no one outside of North Korea knows who’s maybe running the country/military while Kim is in his coma.

Or he’s been dead since ’03 and they’re just using body doubles.  Toshimitsu Shigemura a professor from Waseda University in Tokyo thinks so.  And look at this side by side…

This ones a bit small I know.  More compelling photos below. Continue reading

OH, and I love India:

A cellphone ringtone that chants “condom, condom!” has been launched in India to promote safe sex and tackle the growing HIV/AIDS epidemic. The “condom a cappella” has been designed to break down Indians’ reluctance to discuss condom use and to make wearing a condom more acceptable. Organisers of the campaign, funded by the foundation set up by Microsoft mogul Bill Gates and his wife Melinda, hope the ringtone will become a craze among young Indians.” Read more here. And catch the tune here.

Thanks again, Buzzfeed.

A couple more photos and his website after the jump. Continue reading
