Americans are crazy #32

I'm going to France next month, so my wife and I picked up a French conversation CD. To show you how cheap or crazy Americans can be, check out these bizarre conversations that would probably never be in a regular conversation CD.

Lesson 12:

[mad tone of voice]
"Does anyone here speak English??"

Yes, so often I go to a foreign country and I just need to talk to an English lawyer. It happens more than you'd think!

Lesson 14
"Do you have a senior discount?"

Yeah, senior discount... in France. Okay... I'm sure French McDonalds has one.

t.A.T.u. is back??

Yes, t.A.T.u. is back, not with music (although they are rumored to be working with Trevor Horn again), but as an animated movie. Found it by accidentally while looking for information about the new Wong Kar Wai film 2046.

So, there's not much info out yet (comes out November in Japan and UK).
Here's t.A.T.u. Paragate
Part of this film (only the opening credits as rumored on the net) will be directed by the guy who did Cowboy Bebop which is one of the few anime shows worth watching from a few years ago.


invasion of the Fry Guys?

No, it's just the album cover to Rip Slyme's new album, "Masterpiece".

This contains their 3 singles from this year, Dandelion (March), Galaxy (July) and one from last month (October).

Rip Slyme - Masterpiece +1 (Japan: WPCL-10140) Nov 3
-note that this is the version with a bonus track.

Rip Slyme is a pretty decent hip hop group that's been around for over ten years in Japan. The really mix the styles up.
