The Mighty Boosh

I'm hooked on this BBC4 show called The Mighty Boosh.
My friend S-ko let me borrow her DVDs and I became an instant convert to the the Church of Boosh.

Check out this scene where the Boosh become hippies.

"Yeti Magic"
Parsley:Follow me.
Forget the world.
Look around at the wonders of nature.
Never fear everything is here,
And you don't need your friends or family...
We're your family.
Come with me and then you will see everything you need within life.
Hey, ho! It's easy letting go,When nothing before was real.
Look into our eyes, you can see the future.
Look into our eyes, we can see your soul.
We will be together...Everything is good here.

Vince: He's gone wrong!
Naboo: I know! He's in a trance! It's all part of the ritual.
It's what they do before they breed with ya.
Vince: What's Bollo doing?
Naboo: Oh, he's gone too!
Listen, Vince. This is yeti magic. Don't listen to the hippie nonsense.
You're a punk. Stay punk. Think of Johnny Thunders. Mick and Keith. Block it out.
Vince: Okay. What about you?
Naboo: Don't worry about me. I'm a shaman. My mind's like a fortress.

Naboo: Listen to your heart. Everything is good here.
Bollo: Nothing before was real.
Parsley: Never fear, everything is here.
Bollo: And you don't need your friends...
Parsley: Or family...
Vince: Parsley:
Listen to your heart. Hey, ho!
Everything is good here. It's easy letting go.
We are family!
Bollo: We are family!
Vince: Look into our eyes, you can see the future.
Parsley: Look into our eyes, we can see your soul.
Everyone: Hey, ho! It's easy letting go,
When nothing before was real.
Listen to your heart. Everything is good here.
Nothing before was real.
Listen to your heart. Everything is good here.
Listen to your heart. Everything is good...

Ahh. Good stuff. Crazy days. Reminds me of the time... Oh that's a different story.

Karate Kid, IF "Similar" and SCBWI Tokyo Art Show

The Karate Kid changed my life. The movie, of course. Not the Legion of Superheroes comic character. I'm watching it right now as I type this blog and I was thinking about how many of my perceptions about karate were shaped by Mr. Miyagi. I was never big on "sports" movies, I never saw Rocky. But I knew what it was like to be the little guy. The new kid on the block. And I knew what it was like going up against an institutionalized system of separating the "winners" from the "losers". Luckily, I had friends in and out of school that liked me for who I was and not for who I desperately thought I wanted to be. It took me a little while and Karate Kid 2 to realize what I did want. The summer that KK2 was the summer where I decided to take control of my life and stopped worrying about what the @$$holes thought. It wasn't even a gradual thing. Once I had made that decision, suddenly things started changing around me. I had confidence and that made it ea

Tokyo Akahon Manga “Gulliver’s Travels” by NAKAMURA Hiroshi

According to a post by akahon manga researcher Yuuzora Retro (pen name), the Tokyo-based publisher Taikōdō ( 泰光堂 ) created their Manga Classics series in response to the PTA backlash against manga contributing to delinquency in Osaka. This is Gulliver’s Travels by NAKAMURA Hiroshi (中村ひろし), a B6-sized 3-color akahon* printed with red ink fills on either blue or green lines costing 85 yen. NAKAMURA seemed to be the main artist for Taikōdō as evinced by the ad pages at the back. There is no publishing date, but it probably wasn't too far from 1951 when "Cinderella" and "Snow White" from the same series were published. Looking at the stamps on the endpapers on the back, we can see that this particular book was rented out at a kashihon-ya (rental comic shop) in Saga, Kyushu called Imazato Neo Shobō. It was lent to me by a Mr. Fujita, a collector heavy into Showa-era items. I will continue to introduce the books I was able to borrow from his

Starry-eyed heroes of Akira 'Leiji' Matsumoto

Hello, friends and manga-philes.      You probably know that my interest in Japan was originally fueled by a combined interest in Japanese animation and martial arts. My interests expanded somewhat over the years, but one big change happened about the age of 15 when I bought my first Japanese collected comic. From that moment on, I became more interested in comics than animation and eventually after moving to Japan, I started to collect the comics of Mr. Leiji Matsumoto .       At first, I was put off by the heavy-lined art and blocky characters, but the more I got into the stories, the less I cared about the style. Eventually, though, I started to appreciate the artistry much in the same way it took me a while to warm to Jack Kirby's art.      Like most Leiji fans, I was heavy into Space Cruiser Yamato , Captain Harlock , Queen Emeraldas , and finally, Galaxy Express 999 . These comics were created in the 70's and are representative of Matsumoto's style of that time. After
