engrish SIGNS


i have been waiting a really long time to finally see this sign.

it’s like you’re not really an ‘engrish collector’ until you have taken this picture.

billboard by my house. what i love about this is that it seems to be a PRO=tobacco ad.

huh??? the sands of time are running out if you smoke. . . so you better smoke faster, fool!!




yes, the Amusement Park Robot IS shooting a roller-coaster out of his crotch. his girlfriend is firing TWO coasters out of. . . where exactly???




moses, parting the red sea. . . of cheese?? does Primus know about this??

fuck, you thought toilets would NOT have their own mascots over here??



an average flyer for a heavy metal band, no?

i saw a t-shirt in a crowded mall, and by the time i got my camera out, homey had disappeared. but i was so amazed by the shirt i re-made the design on my PC:

    Dude! "No People" is an old school punk band that I met when they were touring LA (I think they were staying here for a while too)! When I was a punk singer (oxymoron?), I got to play with them in a backyard show in Watts that we threw to raise money for some cop fine… used to have dude's number, but they went back to Japan. Dude's name was Jin I believe… that was back in 2000/2001! What a small world!

    Garage thrashy old school style punk hardcore (or whatever, stupid sub-genres!).
