Satomi Ishihara Behaving Inappropriately on Japan National TV

Satomi Ishihara is a Japanese actress who is quite famous, she recently guested on a Japanese TV talk show called 5LDK from a very well known Japanese idol group Tokio which is under the management of Johnny & Associates. In a specific part of the show Satomi Ishihara is explaining her naughty habit of sitting in a very unladylike positions, like spreading her legs when she is in the dressing room. So in whatever way you will look at the next situation, the hosts are kind enough to ask her to show one of her unladylike sitting positions, and there you have it, immortalized on the screen cap above. Personally, there's nothing wrong with it, like the perfect position of the glass in the above picture, the facial expressions of the hosts (the face of the guy on the right is just, priceless.) and the fact that the above picture is now spreading like wild fire all over the internet, there is still nothing wrong with it. This is one of Satomi Ishihara's golden moments in Japanese national television in my opinion. Check out the video of it below.

Japan Expo 2010 will be held at Paris-Nord Villepinte Exhibition Center in Paris, France. The expo will run from July 1st until July 4th. What made me exciting about this expo more than itself is that the guest of honor will be JPOP group Morning Musume. Last year they visited the U.S. for the 2009 Anime Expo in Los Angeles.

5 Sakura Songs by Vocaloid

5 Sakura Songs by Vocaloid? First let me explain what a Vocaloid is.Vocaloid is a vocal-synthesizing software developed and released by Yamaha back in 2004. If you still don't get it, it is basically a non-human voice creation software. I hope I made that clear. This brilliant piece of software has been used mainly to give a distinct voice to anything you can image. Including but not limited to an anime character, an action figure, vending machine, vehicles, doors, pillows, alarm clocks, home appliances and unicorns. Scratch that last one, it just popped up in my mind. But seriously, a talking unicorn? that's would be pure awesomeness! That's a lot of uses for the Vocaloid software but of course the Japanese has a much better use for it turn an inanimate figure into a pop star! Well sort of since it can only sing those ballad-ish songs inspired by the sakura tree( that's cherry blossoms in English). Two of this Vocaloid singers are Kaito the first version and Hatsune Miku. Interested? check out the in depth article.

HP EliteBook 8740w Looks So Sweet and Solid

HP EliteBook 8740w is now on the top of my wishlist. On the gadgets category that is. Yes, my wishlist is divided into various categories but of course we are not going to talk about that. Let's go back to the topic, my latest dream machine the HP EliteBook 8740w just looks so sweet and solid. Even the standard configuration is pretty descent. My favorite features you ask? except for the awesome juicy screen, I like the firewire and esata ports. I'm a digital hoard I have gigabytes and gigabytes of data so transferring em using USB ports is not just sad but pathetic. Anyways try to catch this new and awesome piece of hardware on your local stores. Trust me, you'll be drooling.

Japanese high school girl uniform pimping

Japanese high school girl uniform customized up to the smallest detail. Yes it is the most recent fashion trend to pick up its pace in Tokyo. The trend is known as Nanchatte seifuku (なんちゃって制服, lit. “just kidding uniform”) and started back in 2002. The idea is simple, high school girls customizes their uniforms personally or bring it to a shop that does customizations and add whatever bling and glitters they want and make it look unique up to their hearts content. It's like pimping your ride, but instead of cars you do it on school uniforms. That is just awesome!
