The recent glut of telephony news can mean only one thing: CTIA Wireless 2009 is getting ready to kick off in Vegas baby, Las Vegas. In the runup we have LG upping the hype on its 13.4mm-thick GD900 handset first outed in Barcelona at February’s MWC show. This time, however, the 7.2Mbps HSDPA slider with world’s first transparent glass (not plastic as originally assumed) keypad will be functional, running LG’s new S-Class UIon the 3-inch display.

more smartphones, and a very nice one. Really, really wish it had Android on it. The glass keypad is a bit redundant for me though. 

Kodo Drummers of Japan

Go and see this show, Kodo simply is unbelievable. Traditional music in an theatre setting. Simply mind blowing. They can create landscapes with rythms so vivid you will swear the sea and storms are filling the theater around you.

working my way thru the Desert Punk complete collection. Up to episode 18 – Asagiri Junko tries to convince Sunabozu to help her fight off a sniper who apparently wants to force her into marriage. Of course oversexed Kanta agrees imagining the horror of losing the object of his (lustful) dreams to another man.

Things get really interesting at the end when the troops Kanta and Kosuna assume are government beat Kanta into the sands and leave with Junko after ripping up Sunabozu’s contract. The act of ripping a contract shocks Kanta into disbelief (which allows the thugs to jump him) and freezes Kosuna. The episode ends with a swollen Kanta telling Kosuna simply “Let’s go.” and starts walking home. Kosuna is a bit shocked at Kanta’s sudden quiet and we are left speculating as to what will happen and whether those guys were really Oasis government.

Man, I really really like the change in tone to the darker stuff after episode 12. the political entanglements are right up my alley, love that kind of stuff. Makes me want to get a copy of the manga.

So this is the anime everyone is holding their breath over?

 

It looks,  well a bit odd story wise. I could not get the setting, is it near future or present day or alternate time?  love to see more about those wierd phones they have … animation looks great …

Not since Who Gives a F*CK? have i seen such a misuse of the word … this is “master” from the new bar near my joint.

its like those people who get tattoos in Japanese kanji that they think means “Honor and pride” but really mean “I like sheep” … 

So how many years behind the times am I? I just discovered how much of a perfect tool You Tube is for watching music videos…
