ok, Babymetal is still jpop.. but if this open the ears of the american listeners to japanese metal and the minds of japanese metal studios to sell in america, then is a win-win

And then I could suppose that if Coldplay had a better halftime show and no Beyonce and Bruno were in the show the show will be anyway panned due to be racist... right?

The only one who really had a chance this year was Will Smith or the actors from Straight Outta Compton, but being sincere, this year was not so good for afroamerican actors and films, one thing is racism, another is the lack of good afroamerican films. If the next year no latinos are nominated, should have Gael Garcia or Sofia Vergara right to boycott the Oscar event?

I think the pachinko players are mutating to boring grandpas and grandmas that only went to spent their extra time and money to a bunch of morons that are putting the pachinko situation even worse. I think in a future Pachinko will have problems to get public, by one side those bored grandpas and grandmas will die and the younger people will not want to spend money on Pachinko but on other kind of entertainment instead, like videogames, at least the sense of pertenence that implies to buy a console, a screen and some games allows the player to think that losing money on games is better than screwing everything on pachinko..

Japan is having a way to see that old phrase of millionaire grandpas... rich parents and disgraced kids. The way the japanese people are treating their parents shows the sequels of those spoiled kids that only wanted to work to get their stuff (furitas) and not for making a future, now we are seeing the second part of this problem, that, in a future, will be very hard to sustain.

One thing the traveller will never miss is the Kanazawa Station Dori.. is one of the most beautiful entrances I ever see in a train station emulating the trees of Kenrokuen in winter (while Kanazawa is really freeze, Kenrokuen Garden has the branches of the trees protected by nets in order to keep the form and avoid the snow to breaking them down, another good reason to head to Ibaraki in winter)...

Good for them, hope they can be happy, while the theme of having children is a little hard, while both of them can have them, so there could not be much problem to build a family.
In this case of the homosexual marriage, the hardest point is for the men, they can not have children the natural way, so they can declare they are a marriage to adopt child, so this is where goverment say no-no... but slowly they are winning that right... while the children have the liberty to choose who to love, I think there should not be problem about it...

Uber has not much possibilities against Japan bureaucracy... I think Uber had become the "Napster" of public transportation and soon someone will be smart enough to make a official taxi-friendly service that could demolish Uber and keep the taxi drivers happy...
