Happa-tai Easter

Happy Easter from Sakura Con in Seattle. In honor of the largest anime convention in the Pacific Northwest, here’s one of my favorite weird Japanese pop culture things ever, from Happa-tai (Green Leaf Group), a group of Japanese comedians spoofing boy bands with their wildly popular (in Japan and among anime fans, at least), crazy song Yatta!

Warnring: Once seen, it can never be unseen. You’re welcome.

“For me, the first draft is a really glorious ride, and it’s the next 17 that are like pulling teeth. There’s a great thing that happens after you’ve spent a morning writing, and you think, I haven’t got anything there, not anything, and then you go away and become depressed, and when you come back, you find a good sentence or a good speech buried somewhere in the yards you’ve written. It’s in those hours of writing crap where you find a little thing that’s worth it, that makes you believe in the process of writing.”
~ Emma Thompson On Screenwriting

“The core fear is what can happen to you, personally. Your body. That’s what horror films deal with, precisely. We are a very thin skin wrapped around a pumping heart and guts. At any given moment it can come down to that, be it diseases, or somebody’s assault, or war, or a car wreck. You could be reduced to the simple laws of physics and your body’s vulnerability. The edged weapon is the penultimate weapon to disclose that reality to you.”
~ Wes Craven, 1996, promoting Scream
