I’m off for the weekend. We have a no laptops rule on road trips. So, won’t be posting. Setting up some open threads for the interim. Peace.

  7. Lisa Bloom’s attack on President Trump has been nullified, she dropped the ball. Not that her attack would have ever succeeded.

  9. Great video, the title should be:Atack of the Happy Japanese Salary Man.

    We have made ‘Guess the plot of the kpop/kpop video’ into a game.

    In this one, three women ride to the top of a tower in iPhone shaped elevators. They discover they are all wearing the same outfit and engage in a dance off while terrified citizens fir lasers at them.

  10. From what little I know about Japanese culture, I had a feeling that the song was more bittersweet than the music and video let on. The smiles just seemed a little too fixed and fake for the song’s content to be 100% genuine. So I looked up a translation and, lo and behold, the video and music form a very ironic juxtaposition with the content of the lyrics.

  11. Their odd-gait has some Edo-period cultural significance, but my sieve-like mind has forgotten it’s context.

    Looking at a few of their other YouTube videos, behind the smiles and forced-happiness everything has a “living hell”-feel; the school-girl-fetish attire, the overall nihilism, the isolation. No-wonder young Japanese men aren’t dating, marrying, or even leaving their apartments or parents’ homes. #Japan is NOT winning.

  12. @ Ted B.: The lyrics are about a guy having to keep up appearances as he goes about his day, watching couples as he deals with his own feelings, which are unrequited. The Japanese have a very keen sense of irony.

  13. I find the theme if keeping up appearances and frustration over losing out on women to men with better appearances is a recurring theme , jpop. In Kpop a recurring theme is crushing on someone who is unaware of you and socially unavailable

  14. We could also call it synchronized individualality (sic) . The Japanese culture had a great deal of conformaty built into it. They have wild fantasy lives ( just look at real anime, hentai and manga) But their day to day existence can be rather regimented.

  15. Culturally, Japan is the ascendancy of the collective over the individual.

    And they say persistent marijuana use has no ill effects.
