good spot. Radcliffe took the role because he wanted to spend some time in Japan. Bet he will have a whale of a time.

Not to be flippant, but isn't a "small tsunami wave" just a wave?

Tragic, but surely a symptom of war weariness even in the armed forces.
Bass, i know you genuinely believe that NATO wars and US interventions are a good thing, but not sure that the results bear out the initial good intentions. as for Syria, it is entirely plausible to draw a line of causation for Syria and the Arab spring all the way back to the toppling of Saddam.

Disappointed that none of Leonard Nimoy and william shatner's ouevre made it into this. Some real classics.
also Nimoy's Ballad of Bilbo Baggins which is one of the most fabulous/ludicrous pieces of music ever recorded. would certainly round out a picture of musical life in the 70's.

What a sorry situation. Chilling evidence that even countries not torn apart by war can descend into chaos without proper accountability and rule of law. If Pakistan can't work, what chance Afghanistan?

I know that it is all part of living in acountry like Oz where the outdoor life and all is an integral aprt of life, but the thought of swimming a few k's in open water in areas which are known to have high shark populations just gives me the shivers. Poor woman.

DEA is just another way that the US seeks to be the world policeman. They should stick to trying to win their "war on drugs" at home. Or better yet admit defeat and disband. Then there wouldn't be "trafficking".

The song is fabulous. both tune and lyrics are first class. If there were an "Asiavision" song contest, this could be Japan's entry and win. The website itself is less good. Panders to the Japanese liking of cheesy and emotional rubbish. As for the anti-drugs thing, what do you expect them to say? "Drugs are good"??
I guess as long as a big chunk of their drug sales are to foreigners, they don't feel too bad. apart from the shabu to tired workers, which is anyway a good thing as it promotes productivity and long hours.........
nothing about their mizu shobai business i see, but i guess that would also not really be seen as awful by the hito in the michi.

It’s getting difficult to tell the Marvel movies apart. The fight scenes on a departing aircraft blur together. The reversals of friend and foe refract like an infinity mirror. The characters are spread across so many movies that you’d need a detective’s cork board to keep it straight.
As much as i liked some of the Marvel movies, agree they are getting a bit samey.

Kind of true. I think it is about time NATO gave up on this World Police gig. TheFort Hood stroy shows that itn is not just the electorate who are getting war weary, it is also those who have to do the fighting.
what good has come out of the military activism of the last decade? not much as far as i can see.
