Thanks to the anonymous comment in my last post, I searched for a picture of these japanese umbrella lockers and found it on Flickr!

Aren't those Japanese people amazing?

Speaking about Japanese people, I read this Wired article dissecting girl nerds. Most of it was pretty lame except for their propensity for Boy's Love comics depecting "romantic, tragic, and hot pretty boy-on-pretty boy action." That's right, some homo-manga! Sounds like the men-loving-lesbians phenomenon has finally evolved and made that cross-over.2

Aren't those Japanse people amazing?

By the way, have you joined my Frappr Map yet? I wonder if I'll get someone from Japan...

1 I think the title means "Amazing!"
2 I also found this interesting article by Marc McLelland.

Hmm, I'm going to have to rent some Japanese lesbian porn. (But seriously, that is interesting.)

As Anne (the Korean lady you met in St. Paul) said, Japanese people-uh....they keep-uh the secret-uh.

I am SO glad you posted this. Why? Because I used to read "Boy Meets Boy" and was sorry to see it stop, but by reading through your links I realized the artist started a new comic. Now I've got a year's worth to catch up on. Thanks!

A Men-loving Lesbian Crossover? Oh crap, I see an nSync/KD Lang collaboration in our future. Break out the earplugs.
