More Batsu Games with DownTown

This is a double post. The original is here. Go meet the new TV in Japan.

This is why you must learn to control your emotions. Yet again. Lest you get beat for laughing. On TV. In Japan. is live!

Okay everyone, I'm officially declaring open for business.

I'm going to keep double posting here for a while just to make sure that everyone knows what's happening (and I'm not convinced that the Yahoo servers are doing exactly what I need).

Why am I moving you might ask? And what am I (that's you) going to get out of the deal?

Well, mostly I'm moving because I was sick of not having any sort of category system for people to dip into my archives. After all, I've posted over 350 different videos on this site and most of them get buried real deep real fast just because I like to post so much.

Blogger's been great (especially for a noob like me) but new digs are needed.

Many of you may never have seen some of my best stuff so I hope you can dip deeper into the amazing amount of Japanese TV now available at your fingertips.

Check out the categories (down below, on the right sidebar) on the new site and you'll be able to see all of the posts nicely sorted. Once in a certain category, click on the post to take you to the video.

As of right now, I can't figure out how to have the categories open up to just have the embedded videos. Hopefully some WP genius out there can help me with that.

As far as design goes, I've used the 3k2 template with some help from the Swachuk theme. Oh and big props again to Luis Hurtado for the logo. Cafe Press store (and shirts) to come if you're interested.

Oh, one small, kinda crappy thing. Actually two crappy things.

1. I imported most of the blogger posts/comments about three weeks ago. And since then I've been double posting here. Unfortunately, that means there's no comments on the new site for the past three weeks. Kinda crappy.

2. See how there's 170 Uncategorized posts on the site? That's because I've only been able to go back about 200 posts so far to add categories and the YouTube/Google Video code which mysteriously doesn't come over with the import tool. I'll be updating these over the next month or so and should at some point have an entire library of these clips.

Well, that's about it. Hope you enjoy the new site and that you keep reading/watching TV in Japan.

Homemade Gundam Toy Animation Matches Anime Credits Perfectly

This is amazing.

This is for any person who ever fooled around with stop motion as a youngster. Your memories of pushing stop and start on that stupid, giagantic VHS camcorder will come flooding back to you.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about, then go look at the boob dudes.

WARNING: Extreme amateur video here. Also, only partly on TV in Japan. Half in some dudes bedroom.

The Geniuses at Soramimi Hour Interpret Sean Paul

These are the lyrics to a Sean Paul song. That somehow translates to shoot me in the eye with shampoo. On TV. In Japan.

WARNING: This video contains a wet t-shirt.

Konami Videos: Salaryman Tests Classic Famicom Games

I'm not really sure what's happening in the following videos but as a gamer I find it inherently compelling.

It's some sort of competition and it looks like the Salaryman has to pass all of these games until he gets let out of the room. But that's just a guess.

If anyone can help me understand, I'd love them forever.

Johnny Depp Gets Interviewed By Japanese Female Willy Wonka

While the funny happens near the very end of this clip, what's interesting to me is how Depp does such a great job of listening to the Japanese questions like he understands them.

This always happens to me when I'm interviewing people from other cultures, whether they're Japanese or not. It's amazing how good you can get at just smiling and nodding and encouraging people to keep talking.
