sorry leah dizon fans!

According to JapanProbe:

American gravure idol Leah Dizon has announced that she had a shotgun wedding last week:

Dizon’s husband is reportedly a Japanese stylist that she met through work. They met about a year ago when he was involved in a shoot for one of Dizon’s CD jackets. They became friends after Dizon began consulting with him about work, and it developed into a relationship. The man is said to be older than the idol, but still in his twenties.

The couple recently discovered that Dizon is pregnant, and they decided to get married. A press conference with more details is being held on Wednesday.

Thinking about it, I’ve never seen Leah Dizon not wearing a bikini or something skimpilar.

Mikko makes a good point though, she’s now a MILF!


pushing daisies season 2.

My favorite alliterating-alliteration-using show returns!

For me, this was the best show that premiered last year, and it’s only bound to come back stronger, I mean, we could only watch the season 1 DVDs enough times before we’ve picked up any theories of future plot threads.

Plus, Autumn Reeser in the season premiere!  w00t!

[Fansite here.]


happy birthday, autumn reeser!

Everyone (what, just me?) remembers her as quirky girl Taylor Townsend from The OC — and now that that’s over, she’s appeared in numerous tv shows and a movie.  We’re bound to see her in the first episode of the season premiere of Pushing Daisies and in (gasp!) C&C: Red Alert 3.

Happy Birthday, Autumn!


politician turns gravure idol.

From Sankaku Complex:

Politician 藤川優里 / Yuri Fujikawa (27), known for her most comely visage, as well as her youthful political success, has evoked a storm of criticism from her own supporters after it emerged she decided to pursue the release of her own image DVD and even a gravure photo album, adding insult to injury by not bothering to consult her support group, which has disowned her.

Ms Fujikawa holds the seat of a city councillor in Hachinohe, a city of 240,000 in the northern prefecture of Aomori, and is described as an independent conservative, though all her notoriety stems from being known as the 美人市議 / Bijin Gishi, or Belle Councillor. Her appearances frolicking in the snow in a bikini certainly also helped.

She was approached directly by Pony Canyon with a view to publishing the usual DVDs and photo collections of her (it’s not clear if she can sing as well), bypassing her political support infrastructure.

It is claimed when first approached, she initially refused, but soon decided it would be ok, so long as she could publicise the city as a tourist destination by doing so. It seems possible she might take this opportunity to stop wasting her time serving the city and instead take to cavorting in bikinis full time.

Her support group, responsible for getting her elected, is disgusted with what it sees as a complete betrayal of it and the city, with the chair saying the group can no longer support her under these circumstances.

He parts scathingly: “She’s massively betrayed the expectations of the constituents who voted for her, as well as all her supporters locally, nationally, and overseas. Personally, I find it hugely regrettable, but there’s nothing to be done now.”

These support groups are what gets Japanese politicians elected, and in many cases are rather more crucial to the business of being elected than the qualities of the candidates themselves, so it appears she will have to put on her skimpiest bikini if she wishes to make amends, otherwise her political career is finished.

Only in Japan!  Is it wrong?  Probably not — although I’m pretty sure decisions like these are bound to upset a given number of people, while for others, this is a wish fulfillment.  Personally?  I think she’s mindflippingly-hawt.  Like a luther burger for a famished man.

leah culver, yow.

Leah Culver is, of course, the co-founder and lead developer for Pownce — and this unique picture of her was taken from last week’s Open Hack Day, courtesy of my cousin.  (Think of the words “crush” and “vicariously,” that’s where I’m at.)

Here’s the original, from my cousin’s album:

One, how awesome is that? Two, one step closer.

To answer my own question from the last post:

Would you like her because she’s a geek, or because of the resemblance with Veronica Mars?

I definitely go for the ‘geek’ one.  Because (and not everyone knows this) geeks are the nicest, kindest people you will ever meet.

She’s still adorkable.


tina fey as sarah palin on SNL 09132008.

After a week’s worth of speculation … it happened. Further proof that the only likable thing about Sarah Palin is how she sorta reminds us of Tina Fey.
