Marginalia on Japanese politics and society
JAPANESE COMEDY IS NOT FUNNYI can't get behind Japanese comedy. God, I can hardly stand to be in front of it.
What starts off looking like a rant about Japan actually contains some perceptive comments:"Japanese television is mostly something people put on in the background; it's wallpaper for conversations."I've noticed that too. I actually think it is more healthy than the way the lives of people elsewhere are centered around TV. For God's sake, it's like people actually care about characters in sitcoms as though they are real people, and believe that what you get on news channels is actually news.
It had it's moments, but waaaay too long for a summaizer like Our Man. Could be summed up as: "Welcome to middle age."
Or, "I need a vacation."
Its not it's. Bloody sub-editors.
