Midnight Diner: Tokyo Stories is the next great show from Netflix Japan via The Verge

April 19th, 2017 Comments off
I enjoyed Midnight Diner immensely and I recommend it to anyone I know who subscribes to Netflix. It’s in Japanese, with English subtitles, so you can’t just have it on in the background, but each 30 minute episode is worth the time focusing on it and immersing yourself in this tiny little Japanese world. I am eagerly awaiting the next season. Check it out! — Douglas
 
Terrace House has become Netflix Japan’s breakout international hit — and with good reason — but for my money it runs second place to another of the streaming service’s Japanese shows. Midnight Diner: Tokyo Stories follows the owner and clientele of a tiny Tokyo restaurant, telling short, touching stories of family, friendship, and humanity in the heart of urban sprawl.

 
PS…Another great Japanese show I enjoyed on Netflix was Atelier.

Superdad and artist Warren King says on his Flickr page that he used mostly Amazon shipping boxes, storage and moving boxes, and packaging for the armor, then gloss spray paint on top. But, what’s even cooler than the finished product is actually seeing the work that’s underneath it. Looking at the steps taken to create this suit of armor, you can truly see the artistry with just the bare cardboard.

On YouTube: Now, Everyone Can Afford 3D Printing (Monoprice Select Mini Review)

The cheapest price is now around $320 on Amazon, but there might be sales that lower it closer to the $200 mentioned in this video. — Douglas

I’m a little late to the 3D printing game, but I finally get it. For $200 , the Monoprice Mini Select is a no brainier for anyone who’s curious about 3D printing. It’s an extremely capable machine with a small footprint. Best of all it comes pre-assembled ready to print, right out of the box.  No this video was not sponsored in any way. I just really like this printer 🙂

I liked this video and think you might find it interesting, too!

Noted: Photos: Los Angeles' Glorious Bunny Museum Reopens In Altadena

MOMA, the Centre Pompidou, the Tate Modern, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art are all trash museums. Only one true museum exists in the world, and it stands above all others with its commitment to True Aesthetic Purpose. If Plato were alive right now, he would only have one example for the ideal of displaying objects:The Bunny Museum.This beacon of finer things has been closed for the past month in order to move from its original Pasadena location to a larger location in Altadena. Now with room to roam, the Bunny Museum can embrace its full status as the only museum worth anyone’s time. The museum originally opened in 1993, and by 1999 it won the Guinness World Record for Most Bunny Items (at the time, that clocked in at 8,437, according to the Pasadena Star-News). The museum now flexes 33,000 items and continues to grow every day. The owners, Candace Frazee and Steven Lubanski, gift each other new items on a daily basis, according to NBC. They are also collectively known as Lubanzee, according to their Facebook: (Lub(anski) + (b)unn(ies) + (Fra)zee).
