Here is the new Shiso Pepsi, fully explained if you click through to the photo. I've also heard 'shiso' described as beefsteak plant or perilla.

In other news, I cut my hair. Mostly posting this to reassure aionwatha that although I wish it to be otherwise, I do not look like Brad Crawford. But I do like it. Picture here. (It's filtered to everyone on my flist, but you might have to reload or check your login to view properly.)

On Saturday, I went to the late night showing of Transformers 2 with kuroe and we had beer and popcorn. It was pretty cool, but for bright SFX action, I'll take Speed Racer. The special effects were amazing, although the scriptwriters were pretty keen on discussing and provoking thought about robot genitalia. My favourite scenes were in the museum, with Jetfire though. The lady next to us was cracking up... I don't think I've ever seen a response like that in a Japanese cinema.

Jetfire: My ancestor was a wheel! An' you know what he transformed into?
Everyone: ...
Jetfire: Nothing! But he did it with honour!

So yeah, it was funny. I loved the robots SFX, they seemed really realistic -- particularly the final transformations.
