  • 02/28/12--15:56: Japan Cat Repellent

  • Nora neko [野良猫[のらねこ]] or "stray cats" can be found here there and everywhere. They tend to leave presents for their counterpart humans in the form of poo which come in a variety of shapes/sizes and smells. While folks who have a delicacy for or collect SCP (Stray Cat Poo) would be over the moon to have a free supply of the feline stool, most humans tend not to like having a steaming pile of cack left on their doorstep.

    There are a variety of traditional methods called Neko Yoke [猫よけ[ねこよけ]] (pronounced "Nehko Yokeh") which are utilized to keep stray cats away - one is in the form of a mat like this with spiky bits on it - the idea is that the spiky bits hurt the cat which would cry like shown in the illustration.

    This product is called "Don't Cat" and can apparently be used for stray birds or dogs too - costs 100 yen for a pack of 3.

    Don't Cat comes in all shapes and sizes. Not sure how effective it is after seeing the following video though ^^;

    When I first visited to Japan, I saw these bottles of water all over the place. They were usually located near a wall or by lamp posts outside houses. I really thought that they were left there for somebody to drink ^^;

    On my second visit to Japan, I bothered to ask my friend and he said that they served the purpose of scaring off cats - introducing another form of Neko Yoke. Apparently, reflections in the water are supposed to generate holograms of fifteen feet tall fire breathing dragons which cats dont like.
    Another theory (which sounds unlikely) is that the sun's reflections in the water scares cats. This Google Image search will show you how folks use them to attempt to scare off cats, although after seeing this photo, I'm not sure how effective they are ^^;

    There is a poll embedded in this article.

    Are there other methods of cat repellant used in your kingdom?

    This is my neighbors line of defense against stray cats ^^;
    Any of you are cat owners?

    OK, These photos are total torture for me! I mean, I already know I will not be able to afford to buy this brand-new HOT TOYS '89 BATMOBILE Toy and I'm already crying myself to sleep over it, ha! This is the HUGE vehicle being made for the large "Michael Keaton BATMAN" Hot Toys Figure. It's gonna be real expensive ( Like hundreds of dollars ) but completely worth every penny as it's a beautiful, and extremely detailed, replica of the Batmobile Car from the 1989 BATMAN Movie.

    It has Rubber Tires with Detailed Tread, a Cockpit that slides open, an Instrument Panel inside that's very detailed, Machine Gun Turrets that pop-out of the hood, a Special Base to display it on, etc... it even comes with a "Cocoon Shield" to cover it. OK, I'm just gonna cry for about an hour or two. I know you are so much braver than I am so please be sure to check out all the wonderful photos.

    lt;img src=quot;; /gt;It is a common occurrence that alternate head molds appear on Hasbro instruction sheets nowadays, and sighted head mold on the Transformers Dark of the Moon Deluxe Soundwave instruction sheet is not any different. According to an image posted on Twitter by Liam W-S (the handle of Blonde_Badass is awesome -ed), we see that the figure has an alternate head that he specu

    You're not at fault for liking this Saeki Ai figure screenshot

    Usually, I'm the first to jump at a chance to make fun of the usual ero figures you see here and there. They're almost always really obnoxiously sleazy, and you wouldn't want to be caught dead with one. Well, I'm not too modest to admit that Alphamax may have proven me wrong with this upcoming figure of Fault!!'s Saeki Ai.

    Granted, this is still no figure you'd want out in polite company, but as far as blatantly NSFW products go, I think you could do a lot worse. She's got a rather average figure as far as anime is concerned, and I'm not going to lie, I really like the work put into her face in particular. At a first glance, it looks like a pretty decent choice for those who might be looking to, er, expand their horizons without going completely overboard.

    Personally I wouldn't mind adding her to my collection a bit, and for those who feel the same pre-orders for her September release are open now. You pay for perviness, though, as she's a little costly at ¥9,800.

    Last night's Oscar Award show was one of the best I've ever seen. The production was practically flawless. The jokes were pretty funny and the fashions were classy and gorgeous. Which were your favorites?

    Angelina and Brad - OMG - she is drop dead gorgeous and sexy. Atelier Versace black velvet.
    He's adorable.

    Glenn Close - fabulously talented but someone needs to force this woman to do something with her hair. It's over-cooked and old-fashioned. The gown, meh. Zac Posen

    Emma Stone needed to lose all that extra fabric at the neckline. It wasn't a detail that warranted so much attention. A gorgeous sparkly brooch would have done a much better job. Giambattista Valli Haute Couture

    Rooney Mara was very interesting to look at. I liked the hair but I would like to see it in another style so I could compare. The gown she's wearing is beautiful but would benefit from larger breasts. Givenchy couture.

    Natalie Portman- Her gown looks ordinary but the diamonds make up for it. Vintage Christian Dior gown.

    Penelope Cruz - glamorous and very Hollywood but not up to her usual drop dead gorgeous look. I think it was the hair and pale palette of her make-up.   Giorgio Armani

    Gwyneth Paltrow dressed as a Bar Mitzvah mom.  Tom Ford.

    Jennifer Lopez - This gown enhances every one of her curves. Although I love Zuhair Murad's work I don't like it on JLo.

    Meryl Streep - Is she too busy to get a styling? I don't care if she's not a skinny little thing, she could have been dressed in a more fashionable, flattering, stylish garment.  Lanvin.

    Sandra Bullock - The top of this Marchesa gown did not flatter and made her look top heavy. 

    Giuliana Rancic - Gorgeous Tony Ward  gown.

    Milla Jovovich  - Gorgeous Elie Saab gown. Makeup and hair all work together. She's a knock-out.

    Nick Nolte looks ill.

    Jane Seymour - WOW! What a gown. I love everything about it except the seam down the front. She's got quite a figure at 61 years old!

    Missi Pyle - I'd cut off the droopy strap. Valentina Delfino. Click here for the dress back story.

    Octavia Spencer - dressed and accessorized to perfection. Tadashi Shoji.

    Michelle Williams - I'm not sure about the gown. There's a lot of stuff going on: multi-layered chiffon fabric, ruching, peplum, train....busy. Louis Vuitton. I love the diamond bow brooch at her waist.
