R.I.P. - Iijima Ai, porn start, talento, and all around cool peep

Yes, have you seen the news yet? Iijima Ai, who's most famous as a Japanese porn star, was found dead today.

She started out as a porn star famous for her long legs and wearing thong underwear. She then moved to TV variety shows, and last year she released a book that was pretty popular.

Farewell, Ai-chan! Thanks for the memories...

Fry's VP arrested!!

Ridiculous. Conspiracy? Could be why sales at Fry's haven't been as good as the old days...

VP stole $65M to pay gambling debts. As corrupt as they come.

Travel Lust - Kabukicho

If you get out to Tokyo, and it's your first time, you definitely have to visit Kabukicho. If at all possible, go with a friend, or try Tokyo Realtime.

I haven't tried em, but great photos, and an audio tour seem to give good direction to travelers. JapanProbe seems to have enjoyed it. Have you tried this? How was it?

Any other opinions? Me? I can be the travel guide. ;p

Charity Lust - own Scarlett Johansson's virus-laden tissue

Get your bid in on ebay for Scarlett Johansson's used tissue. This auction is not by me, but The Tonight Show and will benefit a charity. Honestly!

If that's not your thing, you can always buy her Anywhere I Lay My Head album.

Lust rating: Need you ask?!

Food Lust to food idiocy - KFC girls

Alright, here are the pics of the KFC girls who got in trouble recently. Not as sexy as Ashley Dupre, and in fact, not sexy at all.

It makes what the guys at Yoshinoya in Japan did (vid at end of post), look not so bad...well, maybe not.

Christmas gift for Techie - LiveScribe pen

Check this out. A digitizing pen that includes its own applications! It's called Livescribe Smartpen. It includes a calculator and piano application, as well as translator! Only negative side, is that like the Logitech io2 Digital Writing System, it requires special dot paper. Although, there is an option to print your own dot paper.

The Dane Electric Zpen 1GB Wireless Pen is supposed to be better as you can write on any paper. Only thing is, it seems that it's a bit finicky, and requires it's own software which uses a proprietary file format.

Lust rating: meh, I'll keep writing, or save money for a Tablet PC

You can check out a marketing website, or read review of the piece of magic.

Lust rating: yes! Want it!

Bratz no more!

Uh oh. Have a small one who's been wanting a Bratz Doll from Santa for Christmas? Well, make sure you telephone Santa quickly!!

A federal judge has barred MGA from selling Bratz dolls going forward. Make sure you get those dolls NOW!

Apple? blah, who needs em when there's Psystar?!

Always wanted a Mac computer, but couldn't think of paying the outrageously exorbitant and monopolistic prices for one? Head on over to Psystar, and get an "Open with Mac OS X" computer. At prices that Dell could learn from these days, the computers are just right, and run Mac OS X on an Intel processor.

Check out this review for details. Better get one fast, as it looks like Psystar is in Apple's litigation crosshairs.

Now, what about an "open iPod"???

Lust rating: yeah, I could go for one

Are you sure you can play the trumpet?? - Star Wars

Just wrong. This person tried to play the trumpet for the theme of Star Wars. She is Stacy Hedger and her video is on YouTube. You can even find an interview of her from more recent times.

Wow...I'm at a loss for words

Cool gadgets, that we can't buy here in the U.S. :(

Here are some really cool gadgets that we unfortunately cannot purchase here in the U.S.

Miutech hybrid phone which is basically a cell phone, netbook, camcorder, and GPS all in one device. Only sold in Korea.

Next up is a GPS unit from Jaty that includes a breathalyzer to make sure you aren't drunk before driving! Of course, it also works as a MP3 player, DMB TV viewer, and of course, a GPS unit. Again, only available in Korea.

Last, but not least, is the new Nintendo DSi available only in Japan. New features? It includes a camera and microphone.
