Boogie Wonderland

Tonight I have realized how much Earth, Wind, and Fire rock. If you have not done so then your existance is most likely hollow and sullen. You have my pity. If you wonder what this has to do with anything... well, stop now because it has absolutely no connection whatever to anything logical. I just felt like sharing. Sort of like how I am master of the pan flute - Zamphir eat your heart out.

In a lame attempt to make this entry have a point, I'll tell you where I hopped on the boogie train - a little place called Tsutaya. I love Tsutaya - it's like Blockbuster but you can rent cds! It's not quite as cool as it was 4 years ago since you can find basically anything online nowadays if you know where to look, but if you've ever tried to find Japanese stuff online then you know how hard it can be to find the latest and greatest out there - you know what I'm talking about, right? No?!? Oh well... anyway, buying cds is prohibitively expensive ($25-30 for one disk... no thanks), so in lieu of downloading I sometimes choose to contribute what I consider a fair price of 300Y or so for a disk as a rental fee - they do everything but tell you to copy it out here since they have blank cds/mds right there on the shelf by the checkout counter. "When in Rome" and all that.

Oh, and they have a bunch of Japanese movies too, which cost a bunch to buy whether I'm here or back home. I guess the only way to get those on the cheap is to go up to those shady guys in Chinatown up in NY and pick up those $5 VCDs or take a short trip to Hong Kong or something. Oh, and if you ever have the chance to pick up one of those don't pass it up - the subtitles are hysterical! I hear Star Wars: Episode III had an... um, interesting translation, and I remember watching Lord of the Rings with all the "ring ravers" - no wonder they wouldn't give up! Never get between a party kid and their plur!

So yeah, in conclusion: blah. I have no conclusion, this has just been a outlet for my random juxtaposition of Dougisms. Hope you either enjoyed the ride or are thoroughly confused. ;P

Holy hell- I just tried reading through that SWIII Chinese subtitles link, but had to stop after about 10 frames since it was just too funny for me to read at work! I got down to "the front is a lemon avenue flying straightly" and then had to get up and get a drink to gain my composure.

Man I suck... I know you're not supposed to laugh at your own jokes. ;P
