    Morning folks. Traveler, thanks for pointing the correct spelling out. One of my mentors is Filipino, I will be honest and say I was too tired and lazy to google the correct spelling last night...

    So yes, we have an interesting international cast of characters here.

    I'm looking forward to getting back my 925. It sucks I no longer have the option to sell it, but that's OK. It'll be nice to flip flop between both platforms again. I still like using Android but I do miss seeing the tiles.

    So I'm on NJ transit and this hot (body wise at least) tanned middle aged white woman is sitting besides me in her heels with her legs crossed chatting away on her iPhone. It's a short dress she's in and the more the flicks her crossed leg around, the more the two white guys sitting across frombher are drinking her in. They look at me as if to say: "you see that?" I look back to say: "yup, but that's not my taste." I swear, shes making their morning with her leg movements...

    Ah, America, where people still get overly excited about short dresses and skirts (not to mention shorts). :P It's true that men get more excited about a provocatively dressed woman than a nude one. Various reasons behind that too.

    I pick on the US but it's a male thing all over the world... well most of the world I guess. :P There are still places where showing ankles is considered provocative. :P

    Japan is another place. You won't believe how much anime and manga are out there that make the main (teen female) characters wear ridiculously short skirts, or risqu outfits.

    Yep I know. I know they have some rather 'interesting' comics there. You can also think of the old Sailor Moon cartoon that was popular and others from the past that made it main stream.

    Disregarding h-stuff, there's still a lot of content that would make Western audiences uneasy.

    For instance, a lot of characters in those fanservice-y situations are in the range of 15-18 years old. Well, they're in senior high school, as far as I know.

    Many of those things are actually more adult in nature but the people who wanted to make money by mainstreaming it cleaned it up some. People's fashions are interesting. I remember going on a cruise some years ago and a group of four cute Japanese girls were on the ship. We got off on the north coast of Jamaica as the stopover and I remember one of them wearing this short short summer dress that when she walked briskly you could see her white bloomers. I tell you, many a man had their jaws dropped when she walked by; I just laughed and chalked it up to the experience of seeing some of them wear short stuff like that on the regular.

    I will admit that seeing pretty women in NYC, especially while having a crummy day, is a great momentary distraction.

    Well the sea is one of the brightest points of Slovenia :D . That I'm there from home in 1 hour and 30 minus is just a bonus :). It is however probably the last day here this year since weather is bad this year.

    Nice. I'm about 45 minutes away but the Pacific Ocean is always cold. Only a couple of weeks during the year when it is easy to jump in the water.

    Funny.

    That's why I'm downsizing and once I get my 925 back am in no rush to get a 930. The $ has to go into other areas...

    I've not only seen some of the more racey stuff that most American censors would blow a head gasket over I've got a pretty good understanding of it. I'm not deep into anime but I know the concepts. I've seen a few shows on Japan culture and it's always a bit interesting to say the least.

    Majority of comics and cartoons have an adult side. There are some that are specific to children (which bore adults to no end) but even Disney knows they need to have a broad audience. There's always that borderline.

    Indeed. I watched some stuff back in the days that would make people's head spin in the west too. The Japanese culture, like many other places, has some interesting layers...

    Agreed. That's why I used to watch my Anime when I was into that stuff in high school with subtitles, not those atrocious English dubs.

    I just did a search because I couldn't remember but when I started working part time minimum wage was $4.55 for adults. Under $4 for part timers.

    Since we're talking about more adult cartoons, have you ever seen the movie Heavy Metal or Rock and Rule? Heavy Metal was a lot more adult but both were adult in nature.

    I don't think I've every seen that one. Must be worth checking out.

    I will say I do have 2 CDs chock full with Anime in my house from my high school years. One series that killed me with the adult humor was the Excel Saga and the character Menchi...who was the pet that was the emergency food ration to be eaten in the most dire of straits. You just need to watch it to see how sarcastically wicked the humor is in that series. You know it is something different when they label it as "weird Anime".
