Top 5 Nintendo Franchises that Skipped the Wii and Should Be on Wii U

With the advent of E3, I’d thought I’d make a list of five franchises that I want to see on the Wii U. I am only considering franchises that didn’t make it on the Wii. I am not counting remakes/reboots. Pikmin would make this list, but I am leaving it off because we already know …

Credit Cards in Japan

I could probably do a post about how Japan is in some ways not as technologically advanced as many people think. In some ways it is, but if the lack of credit card usage has to do with being technologically advanced or not, then Japan is lacking. If you’re coming to Japan as a tourist, …

2013 Oscar Bowling

You can see my list of Oscars predictions with some explanation/commentary on each choice here. Now it’s time to go Oscar bowling. I’ll post my score after the Oscars here (though you could do the math yourself, as well). Don’t know what Oscar bowling is? What happens is that for each prediction I get correct, …

2013 Oscars Predictions

It’s that time of the year again, where I reveal my predictions for the Oscars. Here’s hoping for another good year. I didn’t guess last year’s Best Picture correctly, so I hope to at least get that one this year. I think I missed about 5 or 6 last year, and I was happy to …

Top 5 Sakanaction Music Videos

One problem with making Top 5 lists is that you never know when another potential candidate will become available. I wanted to add a little note to the title of this, being “Pre-2013”. I could limit this list to only Sakanaction music videos that were released before 2013. For now, I will just keep the …

Song of the Week for Jan. 20th, 2013

This week is easy because this song is being released in just a few days as a single: “Music” by Sakanaction Not exactly the most original title (the B-side to this single has a name that can be translated as “movie”…), but the song itself feels original enough. It reminds me a lot of “Endless”, …

Top 5 Wong Fu Productions Videos

Wong Fu Productions reminds me of why I love and support independent short films. So, I’d like to appreciate them more by making a Top 5 list of which videos are the best among the seemingly hundred or so they have in their repertoire nowadays. I went through some more Wong Fu videos today just …

So Much To Say

This post really is about a topic about having too much to say. When I read the title of this post to myself, it sounds like the kind of beginning to a super long diary-like entry. This is not intended to be so; I should probably follow through with not making this post too padded, …

Song of the Week for Nov. 25th, 2012

Flyelaf released a new album. There will certainly be some more songs from that album on this list in the future. For now: “Fire Fire” by Flyleaf I really hate to say it, but Flyleaf’s newest album might be their worst album. Now that the bad stuff is out of the way, I would say if you …

Top 5 Movies of Modern Japanese Cinema

I am probably doing this post because I am not happy with the current state of Japanese cinema. It’s not that there aren’t good films, but I think that it is plagued by its own set of problems including way overused cliches. I’ll have a different post on this coming soon. For now, it’s worth noting …
