In honor of my brother’s flight to Tokyo today, let’s take our own little trip to the always-worth-it world of Japanese TV, in this case a game show that features live-action Pac-Man. Thanks to Danielle Kriz for sending along this Laughing Squid find:
Japan: once again, winning the award for most bizarre industrialized culture on the planet.
I’ve been trying to get through to the new John Edwards-created PlantsForHillary.com, which is supposed to be a little microsite that knocks Clinton for the apparently planted question at a citizen forum. Problem is, the site seems to be down — I get a blank screen when I try to view it with both Firefox and IE, and “view source” shows that the page contains only header information, no actual content. The site sounds like a fun idea, and its launch yesterday picked up some media and blog coverage, but it seems to have encountered problems since then. Did it go down for technical or tactical reasons? Enquiring minds want to know.
Update: According to an email from campaign staff, it was only a “a fun little debate day website” and not intended for posterity. I’m jealous; Wired’s Sarah Lai Stirland received a very bad pun in reply when she asked the same question.
