Daiso and the Wonderful Things They've Got

Hello there and welcome to a quick look at Daiso. For those of you who don't know what Daiso is, here is a quick summary. It is a dollar store in the japan town mall of San Francisco, where most things are $1.50. If you walk around the store as I did, you might see some weird stuff like these products, some useful, some not so useful. Here we go... Some of the labels are blurry so I will type them out.

Shoulder Tapping (Strawberry Type)

Point Pressing Stick

Health Tool

Disco Man Party Wig

Emo Rainbow Fauxhawk Party Wig

Parts Case

Ass & Coin Case

There might be a "p" behind the "a" but, I'm not super sure.

Charming Girl Drawing Pad

Scum Absorbent Sheet

Container Bear Pet Large

Hair Water for MEN

This is the weirdest one yet. Duck faces are coming out of their private region. Is this some kind of duck head codpiece? No idea.

And last but not least, for a measly $1.50 you can purchase an EAR PICK.

Thanks for reading. If you have seen any of these products or thing I should send them into engrish funny comment telling me to do so.

The Dark Night Rises: A Review

Hello there, welcome to The Dark Night Rises: A Review. Let me start of by saying this movie compared to other superhero movies was not incredibly shallow. Yes, there were lot's of guns and explosions and eye candy, but there was actually a story with character development and other things that are key to a story unlike some other superhero movies I've seen. Previously being a fan of Adam West's performance and not seeing any of the newer stuff, the way they made the Batman franchise go was somewhat of a shock. I knew the endless jokes about batman, but I didn't know they were that true. Anyone who has seen the older Tim Burton movies tell me if it was such a sudden jump. This time around the villain is not the joker or Catwoman, played by Anne Hathaway (in fact Catwoman helps batman) it is Bane played by Tom Hardy. Ending the trilogy that started with batman begins ends with a bang. Sorry to leave you hanging but something kind of important happens at the end and I don't want to spoil it for you. Overall this movie gets a

Waiting for Superman: A Review

Hello, and welcome to my review of the documentary Waiting for Superman. I'm going to start out by saying that almost everything a documentary is supposed to do was ditched to go after this one point–schools and teachers suck. The whole movie is, in one way or another somebody saying teachers suck or schools suck. As a student, I know some teachers and some schools, do suck but that isn't the only factor– Neighborhood, Wealth, etc. Going back to my first statement that this documentary ditched everything a documentary is supposed to do. What I mean by that is, it supplies few or no reasons why the schools suck even though I know there are many and they talk about bad teachers without saying how to classify one. No one cares about a documentary where one point is repeated to exhaustion with no explanation. Also the families they followed in this documentary are supposed to represent the children in high risk of dropping out or failing, but their parents are very supportive as you notice at the intese lottery scene to get into a prestigious charter school at the end. When you have low income children there is a higher chance of dropping out but with such supportive parents that chance is severely lowered. So my overall thought on this movie was: it's a one sided documentary that's villain-izing teachers and schools and not proving enough about the subject.
