Pulsations (12.6.13)

Friday, December 6th, 2013

Here’s a new batch of Pulsations, links to fresh stories and visuals about Japan, shout-outs to fellow bloggers and highly clickable stuff that we think you might enjoy.

In no particular order . . .

Restaurant combines delicious sushi with live performances by J-pop idols (from RocketNews24): “On average, each of [the members of the idol group] works in the restaurant three days a week, and on Mondays and Wednesdays, they’re always here to take care of our guests. One of the girls hates sushi, though.”

IT knit sweaters by Shogo Kishino (from designboom): You know that time you met that guy what’s-his-name and he had some hair and like . . . a face? There’s also what’s-her-face and their hazily remembered animal friends, all in pixel art on sweaters.

Noramoji | Fonts made out of retro Japanese storefronts (from Spoon & Tamago): Buying these unique fonts supports the small business owners whose signs they are adapted from.

Tokyo Disney Sea with a bottle of vodka (from Ikimasho!): Justin goes further than journaling his visit to the theme park by rating all the rides he and his friends went on.

Stop-Motion Animator Spent Four Years Making His Dream Come True (from Kotaku): “I’m putting out [Junk Head 1] and if people are interested in the sequel and are willing to donate the funds necessary to make it, I’ll make it.”
