How’d you like to have the father of innovative video games on a T-shirt?
This article’s title is better than anything I could come up with: Japan’s Middle-Aged Men Start to Preen. I also like this quote: “Mr. Company President is sexy!” (I wonder if that’s “社長さんはセクシー”?)
Speaking of good quotes, here’s a funny one from Global Voices Online: “A Welsh View points to how to buy a pint of Guinness. I’m not sure why a Welsh site points to a Swedish site for instructions on how to order an Irish beer–perhaps we can blame globalization.”
Global Voices Online also links to a comparison of a new Japan-China-Korea history textbook to the recently-approved Japanese history textbook that has Asia up in arms. (At this point, I’d like to link to a few Japundit articles on the subject: one, two, three.) It would be interesting to see this new book compared to China’s own textbooks…
Slashdot links to an article about “a subject often pondered by Star Wars fans: what is it like to watch the six films in order with a fresh perspective?” It’s actually not as thorough as I would have hoped for, but it is interesting!
