cafe for Sailor Moon Fans

For those who grew up loving Sailor Moon (anime, manga) and her fellow Senshis and have somewhat reluctantly moved on to other things — college, careers, and coffee houses — well, there’s no need to fret. You don’t necessarily have to leave those days behind. You can pursue your other interests and still have time to indulge your childhood fantasies.

Cheer up, because there are several Sailor Moon-themed cafes in Tokyo and in other locations in Japan (see one below).

Sailor Moon cafe

And man, the food they serve in these joints will send you drooling: they’re colorful, creative, and eye-catching – also a bit calorie-heavy, but hey, who’s counting right?

I’m not a big fan of Sailor Moon, but her chibi form is always guaranteed to send me smiling.

The Race vs. Tortoise Race

That much-talked-about race about a tortoise and a rabbit (hare)? This is how it looks, in modern-day terms:

LOL!

So don’t worry about your glacial and plodding pace. You’ll get to where you’re going… eventually (assuming you don’t get distracted along the way).

My favorite Stephen Colbert-Jon Stewart clip

I must have watched this Late Show with Stephen Colbert (CBS) clip about 30 times already but I still can’t get enough of it. LOL!

Jon Stewart is seemingly a teeny bit rusty here, but it just adds to the total impact of the clip. And, of course, nobody does it better with Jon Stewart than his ol’ buddy Stephen Colbert.

And the topic? Take a wild guess. It’s just priceless, with punch lines raining all over the place and the audience reaction is the perfect icing for this particular cake.

Enjoy, folks.

Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens — it’s almost here.

Oh man (*tries to breathe slowly*). I guess it’s about time to dust off those light sabers and Star Wars costumes that have been gathering dust in your closets, people.

Here’s another batch of Star Wars VII trailers featuring Han Solo, Chewbacca, and Han Solo and Princess Leia‘s twin kids, Jacen and Jaina.

and here’s another one…

The seventh episode (yes, it’s officially called Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens — as if you didn’t know) is expected to hit theaters worldwide by Christmas this year (2015).

However, along with the mounting anticipation is a nagging, uncomfortable dread that this could turn out to be another disappointing turn (Star Wars I, II and III, anyone?). Let’s all cross our fingers that this time it will be different.
