The double morale in the media is the problem, if Verhoeven tries to do a remake of Showgirls right now he will find in front of him a lot of activists denouncing him as using the women as object, yes the PG-13 is the biggest market, but because it attracts children and adults together, a R-rated film has limitations but is profitable using the correct publicity, just use Deadpool as example...

Well, for KnowBetter, a lot of tourists means a lot of problems, first, the pics are not so good when the place is crowded and that is one thing the tourism agencies will never show you. Second, some people does not respect the rules of the place and for these fistful of people the rest loses. Finally, there are a lot of guys that only take selfies... they not even try to take the beautiful stage in front of them!!!

As a Mexican I can say that we were very dumb to elect Enrique Peña Nieto as our president, but you know, when a donkey gives some hope to ignorant people, they vote for the donkey. Please, American, think about it, I watched Trump and is even worse than Peña Nieto.. is a Donkey, but with the mouth of a serpent and the brain of a gorilla... save the world... do not elect him!!!

Well, I was reading that for someone, to get a silver medal is more embarrasing against the bronze medal winner, and in wrestling is more notorious, the bronze medal winners do not play a match for bronze, but if they did probably that third place will be proud to pulling that last medal... however silver medal is a pain, when you lost the final match.. the most important.. and for someone that lost the fourth time after winning three... it should be really embarrasing.

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)...
