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.

Jetfire was the greatest thing in that entire movie. And the giant robot balls came in second. I was laughing straight through that scene. At first, I could have swore he was voiced by one of the Monty Python guys, and was expecting him go to "HELP, HELP, I'M BEING REPRESSED!" at some scene. But really, the fact that he transformed and came with a CANE? That pretty much made the ENTIRE MOVIE.

...Okay, and the fact that Devastator was there also made the movie. The guy sitting next to me seemed amazed that this white girl was fangirling over robots more than he was.
But it's a totally justified response. It was made out of, like, ten million trucks. 8DDD

I really liked it overall, although I've heard really bad reviews since. I guess that's why they gave it to Japan and the UK.

It would have got really bad reviews no matter what. It was a big movie about robots. It generally doesn't appeal to the people who studied film for years and years. But even with bad reviews, people will go and love it, because summer blockbusters are for fun, not for good reviews.

Yeah, they come out with something new every summer. Last time (?) it was cucumber Pepsi, but I never liked it.

Your haircut looks great! (And I do see the slight resemblance to Crawfoo. Maybe try his patented sneer or buy glinty glasses?)Dress shirts are <3

Never mind the green Pepsi... is that KitKat blue??? 0_o

That's right... it's ramune flavour, which is new, like the Pepsi.

I just can't imagine combining "shiso" and "sweet."

The haircut looks good /o/
Williamgenkischuldich on 27th June 2009 04:11 (UTC)
It works surprisingly well.

Pepsi looks refreshing green!

Great haircut! (--And it is VERY Brad Crawford! Awesome!)
Williamgenkischuldich on 27th June 2009 04:11 (UTC)
Okay, I'm going to now assume I DO like Crawford, after three people have told me so. Except without the height. :P
菖蒲eye_ame on 24th June 2009 02:34 (UTC)
You still look cool ;)
What do you think about VUW news?
Williamgenkischuldich on 27th June 2009 04:12 (UTC)
Well, they updated the website and there are sections of Pawn's bio scrubbed out, which is interesting and amusing. Aside from out, the CD release schedule got pushed back to next month, so we'll have to wait and see.
菖蒲eye_ame on 27th June 2009 08:37 (UTC)
Thank you ;)
So no CDs out still? Argh :(
