Off Course Bridal

It's a hair salon, apparently specializing in wedding hair styling. Off Course.

One Million Lawyers

I started this blog on July 17, 2008. It's taken a little under 9 years, but some time in the last couple of weeks TSOJ finally cleared the 1 million pageviews mark. Not setting any speed records here, but I'm not too dissatisfied. For a very long time, I'd been running between 240 and 350 views a day. As shown above, I'll occasionally jump up to 1,200 a day now.

I think I'll go eat some cake, and listen to Tom Paxton.

Tedman's T-Shirts

"Tedman's authentic U.S. shirts" seems to be a Japanese company appropriating the artwork of Hot Stuff.

I like the "Vanson Motorcycles Custom Design Death Rock One Eared Devil Rabbit Detached Force" shirt, though.

Yamakataya Cosmetics Ad

Yet another bad ad. It doesn't show up that well in the photo, but the super-enlarging of the make-up around the eyes made the foreground model indistinguishable from a mannequin, or a corpse.

The salon

"In addition, the salon which wants to come home."

But, it may be better if it stays where it is...

Another foam mascot

The Drops toy store in Tenmokan had a photo op with a foamhead mascot a few weeks back. I don't recognize the character, but it was a big hit with the kids that day.

Yamakataya Ad - Hint of Colour

If this is what the cosmetics department thinks is a "hint", I'd hate to see the paint roller they use for regular color applications.
