Despite my love for Japanese doramas, my interest in Japanese music is non-existent. About the only thing I can say is that I like HYD dorama's opening song which is sung by 'Arashi.' That's true generally, as my interest in music from anywhere has been pretty slim.

But I have to say, even with no interest in music, this post is worth checking out. It's a post pimping Kat-Tun, a Japanese pop band, which I think has scarred me for life. And also made me laugh like a crazy maniac. Cross-dressing. RPF fanservice. Hip-thrusting. Outfits that make you weep (whether of joy or horror is up to you).

I don't think I will ever feel like watching any of their music performances, because...Good God! Though I will watch them in doramas.

Go, check it out. You won't regret it.

Behind thecut is one of the funniest things I've ever read. In fact, I first read it years ago but I still remember it. What is it? It's a bona fide torts case, from 1941. However, the Judge must not only have been on the forties' equivalent of speed, but in addition had spent too much time reading Shakespeare while drinking absinthe. The result is the peerless opinion behind the cut, sporting such gems as:

"It appears that a man, whose identity it would be indelicate to divulge was feloniously relieved of his portable goods by two nondescript highwaymen in an alley near 26th Street and Third Avenue, Manhattan; they induced him to relinquish his possessions by a strong argument ad hominem couched in the convincing cant of the criminal and pressed at the point of a most persuasive pistol. Laden with their loot, but not thereby impeded, they took an abrupt departure and he, shuffling off the coil of that discretion which enmeshed him in the alley, quickly gave chase through 26th Street toward 2d Avenue, whither they were resorting 'with expedition swift as thought' for most obvious reasons."

LONOKE, Ark. (AP) - A small-town police chief resigned Wednesday amid a corruption investigation that's also led to accusations against his wife, the mayor and two others.

City council members accepted Chief Jay Campbell's resignation at a meeting two days after he was charged with conspiracy to make methamphetamine and conspiracy to commit residential burglary.

Campbell's wife faces burglary charges and is accused in escape-related charges that say she got prisoners out of jail to have sex with them.

Mayor Thomas Privett has been sticking to his normal duties in the town of 4,300 just east of Little Rock. He faces a misdemeanor count for allegedly using state prisoners to do work for him, including fixing his air conditioner and hanging Christmas lights.

"I've got a city to run, and a business to run, and that's what I intend to concentrate on," Privett told reporters after Wednesday evening's meeting.

The two other men are charged with conspiring with the police chief to make methamphetamine to entrap another man. One also faces charges that he threatened a witness.

Campbell has maintained his innocence and other suspects have said through attorneys that they are innocent.

Council member Richard Bransford said townspeople are angry. "Everybody's upset, everybody that cares, and I think they're totally justified," he said.

If you've been around DC, you must have seen people selling "Stop bitching and start a Revolution" t-shirts. Even if not, this article about who they are (they are into farming, not revolting, and live on a commune) is totally fascinating. And creepy. That would be my personal version of hell.

Snapple’s attempt at popsicle world record turns into gooey fiasco

The 25-foot-tall, 17½-ton treat of frozen Snapple juice melted faster than expected Tuesday, flooding Union Square in downtown Manhattan with kiwi-strawberry-flavored fluid that sent pedestrians scurrying for higher ground.

Firefighters closed off several streets and used hoses to wash away the sugary goo.

Snapple had been trying to promote a new line of frozen treats by setting a record for the world’s largest popsicle, but called off the stunt before it was pulled fully upright by a construction crane. Authorities said they were worried the thing would collapse in the 80-degree, first-day-of-summer heat.

“What was unsettling was that the fluid just kept coming,” Stuart Claxton of the Guinness Book of World Records told the Daily News. “It was quite a lot of fluid. On a hot day like this, you have to move fast.”

Snapple official Lauren Radcliffe said the company was unlikely to make a second attempt to break the record, set by a 21-foot ice pop in Holland in 1997.

The giant ice pop was supposed to have been able to withstand the heat for some time, and organizers weren’t sure why it didn’t. It had been made in Edison, N.J., and hauled to New York by freezer truck in the morning.
