My friend John says to me "I love flashmobs."AA Well, I love THIS flashmob.AA This is even better than the old funiiest-flashmob-ever post.
This is one of those things that you should be able to do, but is still feckin’ awesome to finally see available. Granted, you have to sign up + pay for MobileMe - which isn’t incredibly valuable - but still a cool app.
Enter, stage left: The lowly garden returns.
This is a great time to start growing your own healthy, organic food at home. But if you simply don’t have the time or know-how to plant your own, here are two exciting ways to bring a garden into your yard with the help of others.
Donna Smith and Robyn Streeter farm peoples’ backyards. They started Your Backyard Farmer in the spring of 2006, and they seem to be the pioneers of independent, individual backyard farming services in the U.S. Essentially, they are landscape gardeners with a vegetable twist. Their service is building and maintaining organic garden beds in a family’s yard. They plant what the family wants to eat, nurture the mini-farm weekly, and harvest in season, leaving a basket of fresh produce on the back porch every week. It can be hands-on or hands-off for the families, but once the garden is in, people often become involved.
Smith says, "People love it. They become connected to the garden and their land in a different way a€¦ We often find that people are weeding and keeping the garden beautiful themselves.a€A She also also sees picnic tables and hammocks appear near the beds as people are pulled into their gardens. She adds, a€oeThere’s a synergy that happens."
I will be the first to admit that I spent a little too much time on Matador last week, reading all types of irrelevant BS.AA But, think, my ninjas:AA If I did not do this, you would never know about how freaky the Japanese red light district is - in all its themed sexual glory.AA The picture above is apparently depicting stewardesses from the "flight-themed" club.AA I encourage you to follow the link.
Prostitution is illegal in Japan, which may be one of the reasons for so many creative a€oealternatives.a€A Whatever the reasons, the commercial sex industry in Japan is bold, ubiquitous, and incredibly diverse - a magical hall of mirrors for the die-hard pervert.
Consider this: Japana€™s largest red-light district, Kabukicho, is a convenient two minute walk from Shinjuku, the largest train station in the world, teeming with over 3.64 million daily commuters.
Here is a short list of a few of the more interesting club themes and services available to the paying public. [Link below]
I’m going to go ahead and tell you that this article is well worth it.AA Service offerings include, but are not limited to:
- "Image" Clubs
- "Doll" Clubs
- "Touch" Pubs
- and… the ever elusive "Panty Service"

Who else would go to Iraq to perform for the troops and never break character [at least on camera]? He even went so far as to declare ‘victory’ - based on the fact that the media in the US no longer discuss the war, so we must have won. But the sitting President ordering that a general cut your hair? That’s feckin’ hilarious…
This is the most impressive business car I’ve ever seen - it’s mine. It took me 25 years to design this.
My ninjas, please. Dude needs take a deep breath or something.
