Monday, October 25, 2004 (and Ultraman)

From quality web content to ... well, this. Madman LokiSpeak sent me the link to via IM. Apparently, a Japander is "a western star who uses his or her fame to make large sums of money in a short time by advertising products in Japan that they would probably never use." And there are many, many stars selling out like this. Just check out Ah-nold's clips. He has some strange, kinetic, Ultraman thing going on -- using a bottle of that beverage to become ... something else ... in much the same way that Hayata uses the Beta Capsule to become Ultraman. It's ... disturbing ... yet entertaining. --------------------------- NOTE: It looks like this post is just as much about Ultraman as it is and their Ah-nold collection. But that is fitting because Ultraman is a Japanese icon. So ... if you did not have the opportunity to enjoy the televised adventures of Ultraman when you were a kid (I never missed them!), here are a few resources to clue you in:

I think I have go to find an Ultraman DVD now ... I feel a fit of nostalgia coming on ...
