Advice the Japanese give their own countrymen on how to handle the peculiarities of American culture.
Gosh, it’s always so discomfiting to see ourselves as others see us.
How is this discomforting? Most of these are just pointing out cultural differences and are actually saying POSITIVE things about American culture.
I like what a lot of it said. It’s nice to hear something about Americans that doesn’t make us all sound purely fat and lazy. I would also like to point out that they make a point about the vending machines. We need cooler vending machines…
There are more countries than just Japan here, and this is /really/ cool! I’ve spent a lot of time with individuals who were born and raised in Japan, and this contains a lot of things they said about American culture which I didn’t understand at the time. Such a neat read.
'then write one' is such a fucking shitty response to the desire for more representation in media
guess what? i write shit that i want to see in media all of the goddamn time
and eight thousand fucking notes on my post is proof i am not alone in this desire
people create these things all of the time
but they are kept quiet, their voices are taken and modified for the status quo
don’t ask us ‘to write one’
ask about what happened after we did and why you’ve never heard of it
This awesome video features Croatian cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, aka 2Cellos, playing their phenomenal “BaRock style” arrangement of the hard rock classic for a completely bewildered 17th century audience. The concept is wonderful, but the actual performance is astonishing.

ok that was seriously badass. PLAY, CROATIAN BEAUTIES, PLAY WHILE I SHIP YOU.
i love the way the sound changes as the bows gradually disintegrate, too.
that was FUCKING AWESOME.
This is absolutely one of the most amazing things I have ever seen/heard.
Watch with headphones. Give it your full attention. Turn the bass up.
