spotted in – where else – Shibuya:
Below, the order of bands in the lineup makes for unintentional poetry on a punk flyer:
Mustang Pai-pai Rapes Pimp!
Worst headline ever.
I should point out that pai-pai is breasts.
If you haven't envisioned that scenario, now you have.
Below: SO FUCKING JAPANESE:
We don't want to make seats because you guys shouldn't sit for free. Everyone needs to be either going to work or shopping to spend their money.
But we don't want you scum leaning on the walls because that's what juvenile delinquents do. Solution?
Passive-aggressive WALL-PROXIMATE LEANING DEVICES.
Fuck i love this country *pauses while everyone sings Kimi Ga Yo*
Speaking of traditions:
Below: BLUBERRY-ONLY vending machine (tachikawa)
Ah, Don Quixote, you scoundrel. Where would we be without your enigmatic yet oddly vehement Engrish?
The beauty leg trencker (goblin version).
Also the NEW sleeping beauty-leg spats (also goblin version).
The ominously-named FOOT PEEL PACK EASY AND SURPRISE. What happens when you peel it off? Wait and find out!
it's not foot peel.
it's FOOT PEE!
Below: possibly the most low-self-esteem product slogan ever:
It's funny because it's name what it looks like!
below, the kokuminshinto (new peoples' party) delivers a speech in Shibuya.
The flag reads, "No voting rights for foreigners"
Well, duh, you say! No country on earth lets tourists vote in national elections. What a sensible lady!
But. The Japanese definition of "foreigner" is so broad it applies to people born here, whose parents were born here, and whose grandparents were brought here as slaves.
So basically "No voting rights for foreigners" means "no voting for descendants of slaves."

Lots of right-wing sucklords like to speechify here in Shibuya because it's a big tourist spot and hence they can insult lots of passing-by foreigners without the foreigners knowing.
below: if the name of the salon is phrased as a command, don't count on getting the haircut you asked for!
You can almost picture the stylist shaking her fist as she mutters, "Mull itttt. . . !"4 comments
