Are you familiar with the Christmas Kangaroo (FLV)?

Try this track for size - it's "Gaffaman", by Gameboj Hitparade. Imagine power rock, inspired by classic videogames, fronted by an accordian. ^_^

otter3 might like this TF sequence mycroftb found - and check out the suit referred to in the comments! (And related to that is also this image of Project Rukario)

Something Positive takes a walk through a Hell House.

The Japanese Agriculture Ministry is reportedly contemplating a system of certification for Japanese restaurants abroad, to distinguish them as being of a required level of quality and authenticity.

Those within reach of Cardiff might discover a new-found appreciation for panto, with John Barrowman in the lead role of Jack and the Beanstalk. ^_^ (Running from Dec 16 - Jan 27)

Yay! AnimeForever have apparently picked up Sweet Valerian as a project, with eps. 7-9 now out, following on from Death Squad's earlier translations of the first six. Each episode is only about three minutes long, so the storylines are all very simple, usually involving the three girls transforming into superhero rabbits.

Fancy living in Zzyzx?

Oh, gods.. now SL's going to see its own version of Big Brother, with the news of the show's production company setting up a house in SL, the winner to receive an island.
Aack.. every time I come to reply, I see that DJ Rokario image.. oh, so cute, so shiny, so infectious.. =:) (The transformation is initiated simply through touch, unless you happen to be carrying a strong solvent with you at the time)

Mm, you'd think such a facility would be an option for admins to enable where they chose. It's quite a nuisance, as it seems everyone plops their furcon photos into such galleries - but at the end of it all, I'd far sooner just fetch a big stack of full resolution pics, and then go through them at my leisure locally, than have to wait for each one to load in turn. Of course, with some hosts, bandwidth is a concern, so they might prefer people not retrieving 10GB of images - but why put up so many pictures in the first place, if people aren't meant to look at them all? Thumbnails serve their purpose, but they're usually small enough to only give a vague impression of what's going on. (For me, it's sometimes easier, of course - I can just look for what might be long ears =:)

Yes, the "sushi police" tagline was rather misleading, unfortunately, making it sound as if they'd be equally concerned about diners' etiquette as about the food, perhaps with undercover agents waiting to pounce. *grin* Reminds me of that scene in Tampopo, with the slurping.. >giggle< Ah, such a fun film. I've not yet seen Ososhiko ("The Funeral") by the same director, but that also sounds like a worthy production, playing on Japanese tradition and sensibilities.
*noddles* I don't know that movie, unfortunately.

Ah well. :) Yeah, I agree about galleries; expecting people to go through hundreds (or possibly thousands) of unsorted images is pretty delusional. Images should definitely be organised in some way - tagged, grouped, or whatever. :)

And yeah, I'd rather download images in one big file and then go through them locally, too, not just because of faster loading, more options and less braindeadness (browsers make *lousy* image viewers), but also because I may want to preserve them, anyway. Oh well; maybe it's time file a feature request for some of the better-known projects. :)
