These Doctor Who-themed engagement photos are too cute for words.

TJ Mundell and Timmy Patterson of Dallas constructed a custom TARDIS and hired photographers Shaun and Shannon Menary to shoot in an appropriately gloomy warehouse in Deep Ellum. To complete the scene, Patterson dolled up as the Ninth Doctor (played by Christopher Eccleston) and Mundell went as the Tenth Doctor (David Tennant).

Fittingly, Patterson’s proposal was something right out of a Doctor Who episode: “He proposed while we were hiking on a mountain in Japan last November,” recalled Mundell. “We were surrounded by monkeys and were almost killed by a giant Japanese wasp.”

Patterson and Mundell will tie the knot on November 8 in Saratoga, California. [x]

AAAAAAAAAAAA too adorable.

btw Japanese wasps literally kill people, that’s not hyperbole. Congrats on not being dead and getting married!

"

Yasukuni Shrine officials have reiterated their stance against enshrining war criminals at a separate site.

“Once-enshrined deities can’t be removed,” a representative of the Shinto shrine in Tokyo honors several convicted Class-A war criminals along with millions of Japan’s war dead, said in a written statement.

Yasukuni began honoring wartime Prime Minister Gen. Hideki Tojo and the other Class-A war criminals in 1978, stirring controversy in Japan and abroad.

The shrine officials, responding to written questions, also said that Japan’s engagement in past wars was for “self-existence and self-defense.”

Lest anyone think that world events have caused the officials at the Yasukuni Shrine to reflect on their position at all, rest assured nothing has changed, as this recent story reflects.

Because if they were willing to change, if they were willing to drop or relocate the war criminals, then they could honestly claim to be nothing more than a shrine to Japan’s war dead. But no, they’re digging in. And they’re maintaining their position that Japan’s actions in World War II were not aggressive.

Never go there. Never give them money. And don’t trust any politician who claims to visit as “a private citizen” because the world doesn’t work like that.

  • Question: I am white and am married to a woman from Japan; The other day a coworker told me 'it must be nice having a submissive wife.' What in the serious hell? Stop getting your knowledge of other cultures from Hollywood you racist, sexist fuck. - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    yoisthisracist:

    Also, it’s so fucking depressing that this misogynist piece of shit feels comfortable expressing this longing to own a person. “Must be nice to have a submissive wife” get the fuck out of here you piece of shit.

    no one has ever said this to my face but I hear shit like this a lot. worse are those who assume I went to Japan to find a “submissive” woman. I didn’t move here looking for a wife, and the woman I married is anything but submissive, you jerks.

Flying schoolgirl action from Attack Animal Gakuen, which I wrote about last week.

The single-pixel panty flash is actually kind of heroic in its sadness. Nor rain nor snow nor strict sprite resolution and palette limitations will stop us from showing a school girl’s underwear.

In Japan, character design starts at panties.

I should print this out and frame it so I can look at it at work and remind myself that Japan isn’t all bad.

Today marks seven years since I arrived in Osaka, Japan and started this job of teaching English to children. But that’s not all.
