TV, Random, and Green Coke

Right now I'm watching Predator... on TV Tokyo... in Japan. It's Wednesday Theater at 9, and I'm lucky enough to catch this masterpiece with good ol Schwarzenegger himself.


Actually the occasional movie they show on TV here is always interesting. Never thought I'd be watching Predator or Journey to the Center of the Earth, etc in Japan, on TV for that matter. I can switch the soundtrack to English too, which helps, but the Japanese dub is always worth a good laugh. I guess theres a new Predator remake or somethin comin out? So that must be why this is on right now.

Alright, on to a couple random things I've run across lately...

One Hour From USA!

...your guess is as good as mine. I *think* this place is a dry cleaner, or some kind of cleaner since theres a sign on the building that says "Cleaning". But where does "One Hour From USA" come into the picture? One hour cleaning sure but... USA? Is America well known for high quality dry cleaning or something...?


Found this guy at a shoe store. I'm not sure what it was about this, but this sign that says "Recommend!!" cracks me up for some reason. I guess it kind of sounds like they're saying "Recommend these shoes to others!!" as in the command form of the verb. But if I were asked what would be better they could put "Recommendation!" or "We Recommend!" but... that still seems odd to me... Whatever, I love it. Keep up the good work guys.

And finally, next in my interesting series of drinks from Japan, Green Cola!

When I bought this I was expecting some form of Green Tea flavor Coke. But when I took a sip, it tasted somewhat peculiarly similar to Coke... Actually the Green doesn't stand for 'green tea' but for the 'eco' kind of green. Apparently I'm going to save the environment by drinking environment friendly coca-cola. Well, whatever floats your boat.

But the part I was disappointed about the most - it wasn't even green :(

It looks like a dry cleaners indeed. One Hour Martinizing is a Dry Cleaning brand here. I have no idea why they would make such a big deal about it being from the USA though.

You are correct sir!

So I guess they put the USA in because its an American company and America is cool...?
