Ah, the Japanese gold glove winners for their repective position. You can tell their positions by the glove shape and size.

The black (I think?) guy looks like a cross between Michael Jackson and Eriq La Salle’s character in “Coming to America” of Darryl Jenks. (The guy with the funky hair)

The Japanese are awesome! But sometimes their pop culture is fucking out there.

Ugh. I hate the Japanese.

I’m probably the only Taiwanese living in Taiwan who hates them.

You hate 127 million people? I don’t know what you being Taiwanese has to do with it but yeah that’s some sort of accomplishment for sure. Maybe someone from your government can get you a badge of honour for that.

I can understand why Taiwanese pop culture would be very similar to the Japanese; Taiwan was the lead manufacturer of Japanese stuff until pretty recently.
A slow bloodless, yet profitable, coup.

The phenomenon of telecommunications connecting us to the most interesting new cultural and artistic innovations has the unfortunate side effect of allowing locally quirky cultural subtleties go unnoticed by the majority. The bulk of these innovations are going to come from the largest concentrations of population (the more people, the greater the chance that one of those people will come up with something interesting), and their relative influence will be based on that population’s access to telecommunications technology. Pop culture knows no borders, so long as the internet allows it to transcend them. Being a Canadian living next door to… Read more »
