I'll be honest here -- the sign-ups for Weiss Day this year are pathetically low and there's only a little time left. There are FIVE people so far! What did I do wrong? Anyone know? There might still be time to change it.

Anyway, even if you're not able to take part, would you post this code in your LJ and help advertise it? It could help us out a great deal.








Links for today, a higher percentage than normal are serious this time around:

Festivals: Tendou Sakura Matsuri Ningen Shougi I want to go this year. Anyone else?
Douchebaggery: Benihana Sucks (Blogger Sued For Poor Review) I can't believe spellcheck is telling me 'douchebaggery' is not a real word. Anyway, what elevates this to an asshole move and beyond is that the restaurant seems to be relying on reduced rights for non-citizens to win their case. As an expat myself that's terrifying.
Gay in Japan: "Mayor of Tokyo is Homophobic!" Shocker You know what would be news? If Ishihara opened his mouth and something offensive didn't come out. Incidentally, while I don't watch TV all that much, I can think of only one openly gay tarento and that's Miwa Akihiro. So I don't know where Ishihara is seeing all teh gay on TV.

Spam From Japan: Photographs From Yokohama

Photophile: One of the Yokohama photographs in LJ_Photophile +1 if you like it. Thanks. :)

I sent out more resumes today and kind of horrified at the stats. The job I'm best suited for had 1170 applicants just on that website alone. Curiously, the best jobs are the ones that not many people are applying for. People aren't taking chances, I guess, but there are some damn nice jobs for which I'm only *just* completely unqualified.

Unfortunate as it is, tirwolf is right. WK is still my favorite fandom to read, but so many authors have moved on. However, perhaps we should think about spamming the various other WK fic communities. wk_fiction and wk_fic_finds in particular are still relatively active.

There was a great response, mainly after pimping from influential fans, not so much my own community posts. :) We're now up to ten.
