"The intel on this wasn't 100%."

I received for my birthday a book I bought this year. Luckily, they gave me a gift receipt. So I returned it and picked up this. Lot's to ponder from this considering our current presidential situation. We'll look back on Obama's presidency fondly. I wish the rapture would happen soon.

We Were Eight Years In Power: An American Tragedy by Ta-Nehisi Coates.

It's been a while. A LONGGGGGG WHILE! Months have gone by but that doesn't mean that I didn't buy stuff at the bookstore. I did. I just didn't bother blogging about it. Seems like my New Year's resolution did not last past the third month of the year.

I kind of fell off with blogging, but now I'm back. At least for the month of October! It's the spooky month. Not as good as NewsRadio Quote Month, but it's kind of fun, too. I want to write a bit more blog posts. Stretch out my typing so that I am actually using a keyboard. I'm not doing that at work. Blah.

Monocle issue 106.
Experience Required: How to become a UX leader regardless of your role. I bought this not because I want to be a UX guy, but because it gots some advice on how to persuade people. I need to stop being passive-aggressive and be assertive. Get me out of this task!!!!

Look it that. You're lucky. It's another Link of the Day to another idol. Enough with Sally. Here's the real cutie: Nishino Nanase!

The Ace of Nogizaka46. The only member who can really make me leave Ikuchan and oshihen to. So in love with her.

Here she starred in a movie released last month. Let's read about her because the more Nishino you get in your life the better.

Nanase is life.

Sally's now available in the US iTunes store. You won't have to get that account on the iTunes store Japan. But if you bought yesterday's music then you already did. Sorry.

Anyhow, please buy in order to support bringing more cute Japanese idols to America. Or at least outside Japan.

It's 天城サリー!

You have to watch this for a bit. She starts as a normal Japanese idol, but as minutes go by she transforms into an American! Just kind of awesome. I'm smitten. The twin tails helps. But that ghetto Sally makes it work.

Welp. Another September has come to an end and so has another NewsRadio Quote Month. I'm hoping some of those blog post titles were funny and brought a smile to your face. If they did (and if they didn't), I hope you seek the show that it's from. One of the best, underrated sitcoms from the '90s.

Link of the Day [9.30.17]

They gave us Sally. #天城サリー 22/7

If you don't know, then you don't know.

It's an idol anime group in which one of the members blew up fandom because she was born in America. Ans she sounds American. But the thing is that on her SHOWROOM you can really talk to her. In fact she answered my question which is the first time in any of the idol SHOWROOMs that I've watched that that happened. Because she understands English. Also, she's cute AF.

Anyway, today's link takes you to the group she's a part of. Get to know them.

I should've posted this when I first started writing it. Now the opening doesn't run right. But so what here we go...

While the world was watching football, I caught In This Corner of the World at The Charles. A second movie in the theatre this weekend? Yo!

The film is an anime set in Japan around the time of the second world war. It's main protagonist gets married and spends her time in Kure, the main naval base. It's around the mountains from Hiroshima. World War 2 and Hiroshima? You know where the story is leading.

The film is slice of life like. Following her travails as she copes with her new family and new life. She also dodges bombs and the war as America bombs her city. Finally, the Bomb is dropped and it really messes up her life.

That's the film.

Not bad. I liked it. But I like all kinds of anime. YMMV.

3 of 5 stars.

Link of the Day [9.22.17]

I had usually let my off Fridays be the days I watch a movie. If I was in Japan, I know what I would be watching... Asuhinagu 「あさひなぐ」。  A film featuring members of Nogizaka46. It's related to a manga of the same name about a naginata club and the girls who practice it.

Nishino plays the lead. Shiraishi is the beautiful senpai. Ikuta is their rival.

They also had it as a stage play this summer. Perhaps a different story, and it had different Nogizaka members.

Anyway I haven't seen it yet. But I'll give it 5 of 5 stars because of Nogi members!
