Dai-Cast 068 - What's a Hygrometer?
Hygrometers! Yes, this week is all about the measurement of airborn humidity!
This week we bring you as usual, our cornucopia of pop culture topics of and about Japan! Included, but not limited to new marketing techniques for bands, ripped off from Japan. Then we look at the Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi dubs’ perversion of that particular marketing technique. Also, it’s time for a public service announcement; smell like a flaming monkey or dirty little boy with Crayon Shin-Chan and Pokemon cologne, and warn you of upcoming high priced Katamari downloads. And we give yet more warnings, vending machines may not be what they seem in Japan.
Plus, now you see it, now you don’t; magic teleportation lockers leave your goods secure, and shipped straight from your vacation spot to your door. And of course, Beej’s patented web-comic of the week.
