    Momo Shiina 椎名もも now known as - 岩崎果歩 / IWASAKI Kaho

    I wasn't implying anything in particular but when idols/stars/people change their name, it is often indicative of some kind of change in their professional/personal lives.

    Momo Shiina 椎名もも now known as - 岩崎果歩 / IWASAKI Kaho

    Keiou University. Not just super cute but really intelligent too. I guess that was what she was saying about leaving her office and show business. It was to cut ties with her previous life. I wonder if Kaho is her real name? Still, I prefer her JI name.

    Momo Shiina 椎名もも now known as - 岩崎果歩 / IWASAKI Kaho

    Hi guys, Has anyone looked at Momo's Ameblo recently? I just happened to open it before and it says basically that she is leaving her production office and will no longer be appearing on R no housoku (NHK TV show). She also says that she wants everyone to consider this her retirement from show...

    i have not been here to share for a long time but i was pleasantly surprised with this round of TV so, why not. after visiting RT i picked up: Atlanta(FX). This is really good. Donald Glover is really great in this. Easy(Netflix). Weaves in and out of different stories but basically revolves...

    has anyone been watching cuban chrome? honestly it isnt the kind of show i would usually (usually? ever) watch but i picked it up and it offered an interesting insight into cuba and its auto industry, or lack thereof. apart from being as scripted and phony as every other 'reality tv'show out...

    what are you watching? (tv shows)

    i highly recommend "Deutschland83" from Sundance TV. it tells the story of a east german officer who infiltrates the west german army to spy for east german intelligence. plot holes and implausibilities aside, the cinematography is nice and the story has kept me interested. only 5 episodes are...

    Photos from Japan

    yeah, it does have an oblique oriental feel to it. if the pic was taken in china then it would probably feel chinese. the shape of the hat and the way the shoes are bound to the calves is typical of japanese style. the overall picture was the least interesting part so i didnt take one, but ill...

    some pics of etchings that i saw on the base of small object in a park. nothing special but the range of subjects was somewhat interesting i thought. just played around a little with the blacks, whites, shadows, highlights, clarity, saturation and vibrance

    Should I learn Japanese until high fluency to tackle Japanese girls?

    wasnt there a "winner" emoticon on AO somewhere? i think we need one... never, ever forget; when you have sex with a female, they are letting you inside them. suffice to say there has never been a woman that finished having sex with a man and said, "wow, im so glad that guy fucked me".

    External hard drive

    one advantage to spinrite is that the disk doesnt need to be mountable in your OS. chckdsk etc are pretty poor at actually recovering data or fixing bad sectors.

    External hard drive

    yeah, ive heard that too. but have never tried it as ive yet to have a drive die on me (touch wood) oh yeah, if you do get your disk hooked-up and spinning, clicking is bad.

    External hard drive

    if only someone had mentioned that before. trouble is that the disc still needs to spin in order to spinrite.

    External hard drive

    the good ones have a small exhaust fan at the back, but tend to be too expensive to justify. the only thing external HDs are good for is portable/off site backup. as you say, they dont do disks any favours. HDs, like all components of a computer, like to be cooled and ventilated, the reason that...

    External hard drive

    is the light flashing when you plug it in? is there the whirring sound of the disk spinning up? the enclosure could be bad. or the disk might have slipped inside the case. undo any screws you can see and pull apart/slide the case apart. the internals are just a little converter, board, e-sata...

    Should I learn Japanese until high fluency to tackle Japanese girls?

    sorry to take this riveting discussion off-topic but @penny, you are probably the first interesting person (even just because you arent a cis white dude) that ive come across on this forum. a multilingual minority who is also queer? awesome! sorry to be creepy but i just wanted to say that.

    10 minute Time Difference

    its an interesting concept. i am sure i have never seen kanji used on a clock before. sometimes the original or archaic kanji are used on elevator buttons for example, but i have never seen them on a clock face. possibly something to do with the difference in the way numerals and kanji are...

    The Future of Tomoe Yamanaka

    there cannot be any sane adult that cannot pick up on the overtly implied innuendo, ie she is simulating a handjob. she even breathes heavily at the 'end' implying that you are getting close, and then rubs her 'bubble' soaked hands on her chest. i cannot accept that anyone could actually be in...

    meguIV: The Official Akiba-Online DVD Encoder (v1.0.1.1)

    Someone explain Jr Idols to me?

    uh...youre welcome? i forgot to reply to the survey. i would choose either maybe or yes. i think you are mostly right in your perception that it is pornographic in nature (as opposed to 'porn') and we are taking advantage of that, ergo taking advantage of the models. CP is bad. i dont think...

    Someone explain Jr Idols to me?

    just to chime in (because it seems that you are genuinely interested) i would say: as much as any photo or media that features the human body, u15 is sold for the same purpose; it is aimed at people who want to derive pleasure from looking at the content of that media. whether it is 'porn' or...

    J-Drama - any recommendations?

    japanese dramas are pretty hit and miss, there is heaps of crap (i guess its true of anywhere) but you almost gte the feeling that they are all mimicing each other in terms of cinematography. a few i have enjoyed are (im not going to go through and link to everything sorry) odoru dai sousa sen...

    Should I learn Japanese until high fluency to tackle Japanese girls?

    Should I learn Japanese until high fluency to tackle Japanese girls?

    from my experience foreigners that have little to no japanese skill get treated very well by japanese. and as has been mentioned, if the girl is 'out there' looking for a foreigner then 10 words will likely get you further than 10,000. then again, you are excluded from all the girls who arent...

    just reading that entry (march 22) it sounds as though she is out. but, that is her talking about leaving charm and so she would not mention anything about her future intentions anyway. i guess we can only wait and see for now. she mentions making a new start and making a step up (in her life)...

    7 Things You Should Do In Japan But Not In America

    Tipping in Japan

    unfortunately the US has this kind of institutionalized discrimination in the work place. as you know the minimum (or should it be called the maximum?) wage is different between professions. for waitresses its like 3 dollars? i might be far off. in japan there is no tipping. it is really that...
