Japanese artist, Kenji Yanobe, has created the toddler of all toddlers. The 24 ft robot goes by the name of Torayan and supposedly, will only respond to the orders of a child’s voice. Yanobe has described him as “the ultimate child’s weapon”. We can only hope that he doesn’t learn to walk, cry or become sentient.
Awww, what a cute little guy!
... completely pissed off...
... fully realized satanbot.
I’m not really sure how or why this happened, but I’m pretty glad it did.
Futomomo Satisfaction (futomomo = thigh) is a Japanese 10-piece band with a wonderful gimmick: 3 bikini-clad girls, front and center, rock’n their trombones. The girls skillfully execute covers from a wide array of genres, from punk to jazz. Even so, would the band be getting this much attention if they were a bunch of hairy dudes? Probably not. But, they’re not. So we will watch and we will be delighted!
This first song sounds a bit like a Man Man song. Actually, I’d be delighted to see Man Man play in bikinis too.. especially that dreamy Honus Honus and his stupendous mustache. In fact, I think the mustache deserves a bikini of its own.
Ahhh, but I digress. Here’s a fun little clip from Futomomo’s SXSW show.
