Today in AP Bio we were talking about how some animals have anti-freeze compounds in their blood to keep them warm, and this kid just leaned over to me and whispered,
Mommy teaching babby easier water drinking way because drinking water is hard experience u get it in your nose. Jesus how she puts her paw on his head in the second one. Such concern and love.
A piece of manga history is soon to be replaced.
Shogakukan’s HQ Building, which has been “home” to many of Japan’s most popular manga titles (which in turn have been made into classic anime) for 46 years, is set to be demolished & rebuilt into a shiny new HQ building soon. And to celebrate this, some of Shogakukan’s manga artists were given permission to go nuts and draw ANYWHERE and EVERYWHERE all over Shogakukan’s 1st Floor Lobby. They held an event for only 2 days called “Graffiti Tournament! Thank you Shogakukan building!”, where fans could buy tickets and come see these drawings before the building gets torn down.
It’s an amazing display, featuring art by Naoki Urusawa (Yawara!, 20th Century Boys, Monster, Pluto), Fujiko Fujio A (Ninja Hattori-Kun, Manga Michi) Masami Yuki (Birdy the Mighty, Patlabor), Mine Yoshizaki (Versus Knight Lamune & 40 Fire, Sgt. Frog), Kazuhiko Shimamoto (Kamen Rider ZO, SkullMan), Rumiko Takahashi (Urusei Yatsura, Maison Ikkoku, Ranma 1/2), Riyoko Ikeda (The Rose of Versailles, Oniisama E), Shinohara Chie (Red River), Shigeru Mizuki (Gegege no Kitaro) and many others. See if you can spot their art and messages! You can see even more photos of art here.
I. Uh. Well thanks to this Japanese twitter user, we’ve now got a look at what shiny Sylveon looks like! One of the game demos today at PGS generated one.
It’s blue and purple and oh man do I want one.
Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch – Tikka Mahala
I think it would be safe to assume that the Tikka Mahala is the Dong Dong Dell soul-mate of our world’s Tikka Masala. While both dishes enjoy the title of “The King of Curries”, only one is made with seeds from a volcano as part of the Sheikh’s special spices. These special spices are comprised of “ turmeric root” and “three pinches of spicy seeds” which thankfully are readily available most likely at your local supermarket, so there’s no need to make a trek to Old Smoky - ideal should you find yourself lacking in enthusiasm. Make this curry for you and a friend, and get yourself some merit stamps.
