Okay Japan we need to talk

Dear Japan,

I want to start by saying you have given me a lot to be thankful for:

  • Samurai particularly Itto Ogami of  ‘Lone Wolf and Cub’ fame, the greatest father son story in literature.
  • Miyamoto Musashi’s Mushasi’s Book of Five Rings. A book in which I uncover something new each time I read it.
  • The whole Kaiju (translated ‘strange beast’, but meaning giant monster like Gojira) movie industry without which we would never have seen Jack Reno make a joke about American instant coffee.
  • Ninjas of course, is there anyone who doesn’t think Ninjas are cool? Ninjas never go out of style. ANY story can improved with ninjas, they are like zombies in that way……mmmm…..Zombie Ninjas! 
  • Rope work (Kinbaku) which goes so far beyond anything else I think some of the knots use mobius strips and cross over into some weird non-Euclidian geometry dimension on a topological level
  • Also where would my late night TV experience of Deep Cable be without J-Horror, sure Korean-horror may have taken it further  and Spain-horror has been putting out some kick arse stuff recently. But where would scary films be now without the influence of Ringu, Ju-on, Dark Water, One Missed Call & Pulse. We all know the tropes by now :vengeful ghosts; long stringy black hair; impossible physical gymnastics; meowing little ghost boys; cursed videos (or cell phones or computers); old rotted buildings and corpses; moldy books and newspapers; elliptical storylines (or a total abandonment of logic); creepy sound design; and creepy cinematography.
  • Then there is the Anime, so much anime. Enough to say if you don’t know who Deunan Knute or Major Motoko Kusanagi are, or if you don’t know who Astroboy (anyone else looking forward to the new movie), Gigantor or Prince Planet are then your childhood Saturday mornings were probably more active than mine.

 For all this I can even forgive you robotic hubris that will see the rise of our machine overlords

What does Singapore need so many robots for, Shopping?

 But I have to ask WTF?

Why?

Why?

Big shout out to the ZOMBIE DEFENSE LEAGUE who last week tried to raise the awareness of the threat of Zed to drivers around Austin. The story is here.

Zombies are coming

Zombies are coming

 

 

 

While some have speculated this is the work of ‘expert computer hackers’ I have my doubts that this is the sort of level of expertise needed. A few online searchers turned up –

“Apparently, while most road sign control pads are placed in a lock box, that box is rarely actually locked. And while most road signs are under password protection, that password is most generally just the default code “DOTS”—or you can easily reset the password by holding “shift” and “control” while typing “DIPY” (so that it just defaults to “DOTS” again)”.

Of course I would never condone such irresponsible behaviour.

Unless of course there were Zombies about.

Or it was time for zombie drill.

Or I was bored and had some spare time.
