This is just going to make you mad at me

Because it's so quiet around the blogs these days, I give you [this:][1]Love-starved Japanese men are gathering in Tokyo's theater district to mime their best bedroom moves in a performance they're calling "Air Sex," the Mainichi Daily News reported recently."Air sex was originally invented by guys who couldn't get girlfriends but desperately want to have sex," said the creator of the genre, J-Taro Sugisaku.The men compete in much the same manner as air guitar, crowning the champions who best mimic those actions that usually appear under cover of darkness.And it's dangerous, said last year's champ, a guy named Cobra."You can't care about what women watching your performance are thinking about you," he said. "When you get down to air sex, you've got to immerse yourself in the air sex world."Air sex can't be performed in half-measures," he continued. "If it is, you're only asking for trouble."Joel adds: Nothing, actually. Nothing left to say. Blogging can't be performed in half-measures. If it is, you're only asking for trouble.

I will immerse myself in the heed the warning next time world.

Dam you, Mathis, dam you.

I should note, however, that "J-Taro Sugisaku" is Japanese for "Joel Mathis."

You chose this over Hugh Grant being arrested for throwing baked beans?

Chris, man, ALWAYS give the Not Safe For Work warning on something like that. I'm cleaning out my desk right now.

Althea: I'm avoiding celebrity news, remember? This, however, enhances cross-cultural understanding....

Sorry, forgot about that. How about the dean of admissions at MIT being fired for lying on her resume?

sorry, Joel. i couldn't believe this was real, so i had to see it w/ my own eyes. though, now that i've seen it, it's pretty much exactly what you'd imagine, just a lot worse and a lot funnier. that clip has some great quotes, though.

i'll let you mow my yard if you're needing work.

I saw an actual CLIP of this stuff... the champion is actually a virgin. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

"'ve got to immerse yourself in the air sex world." That statement more than any other part of the story boggles my mind. It must be quite a world.

I'm going to go watch "Dead Alive" now, to get some more palatable images stuck in my head.

What. The. Hell.

I couldn't get past about 45 seconds of that clip.

Someone pass the brain bleach please.
