This is correct.
I think one of the primary discriminants between Japanese and, at least, American culture is Japanese people commit to their roles slavishly. You're not going to find any trace of the individual 98% of the time you encounter Jane Yamada at some restaurant working vs Jane Doe you'd find in the US. This can be easily misinterpreted as fakeness, but another way to think of it is 'if it's worth doing, it's worth doing right' taken to an extreme.
Thus most people with normal jobs are in a rigid, soul crushing place all day. This coupled with the aforementioned commitment to roles is why Japanese people drink so fucking hard (we're moving from 'work mode' to 'drinking mode'), why a lot of entertainment looks so bizarre to us, or how you can explain the extremes of World War II (fighting tooth and nail 'til the very end and the 180 the country did after capitulation). Of course maybe I'm just some stupid faggot who bumbled around Japan for 7 months and now I'm talking out of my ass 'cause I think I'm some kind of fucking expert - so take my words as you will and your mileage may vary.

Kinda reminded me of this video.
Only tangentially related, I'll grant you that.
As someone who lived in Japan for 8 years, you're mostly correct. The drinking after work thing is, in fact, part of work. Many young salarymen would prefer to go home and crash but are more or less stuck drinking til they can barely walk because that's what the boss man wants to do.
The weird, zany entertainment is every bit as weird and zany to the Japanese as it is to us. There is also significantly more boring stuff on Japanese TV than there is weird zany shit.
Pic tangentially related; the only pic you will ever see of a pre-hipster hipster garbage.
Same thing in Taiwan if you work a corporate job it's part of the job that you have to go out to drink after work to 1) entertain clients to talk business and closing deals 2) Be a team player and hang out with the boss 3) How well you can hold your alcohol is also factor into your work performance
Last time I went back to visit I was able to out drink my cousin who is twice my size, he ask me how can he learn to drink like that because his co-worker are laughing at him the fact he can't hold his alcohol.
Childhood friend of mine can attest to this. He took over the family business and went overseas for meetings, and was pretty much hung over every single morning he was there.

Leaked footage from Game of Thrones season 5.
Space Truckers was fucking radical.
The girls from Veruca Salt took over Sirius Radio Lithium and played 90's chick rock for an hour. Shit was awesome.
Post chick rock.
Good chick rock.
Best chick rock.
Punk chick rock
Calling the benevolent Bat Guano machine to dump Vietnam war photos.
You're not him. Fuck off.
Anyone have any Starship Troopers comics?
Got the Dominant series but can't seem to find the others.
which ones are you missing?
literally everything except Dominant Species #1-4
heres a start
Don't really torrent things, found that collection somewhere else but part 2 404'd I guess, so I have Blaze of Glory and some other random issues now
My body is ready...
I'm afraid to watch trailers for films. They will generally give away enough of the film to ruin it or so little as to leave me a bit confused and/or angry at my time being wasted.
The new Robocop was actually really good; it just wasn't trying to be the same movie. So they just took a similar concept and ran with it.
You just can't redo Robocop or make a proper sequel. It's too much of its time. It'd be like trying to remake Demolition Man.
Alright. I'm going to watch it in the next couple of days, but I'll be back to yell at you if it sucks as bad as it looks.
>The new Robocop was actually really good
Nope. Better then Robocop 3, sure, but not really good. I'd even argue it was an okay watch, nothing special but nothing blatantly assrapingly terrible, but certainly not really good.
Spoilers ahead so anyone who hasn't seen it shield your eyes lest they be violated by my spoiled word dribble.
Samuel L Jacksons newscaster role was both over-utilized and under-utilized. Over utilized in the fact it was what was trying to paint the stories narrative rather then letting it tell itself. Under-utilized in the fact it was DRONES DRONES DRONES. None of the world expanding extra bits like the commercials or news broadcasts telling us about the Amazon War and Presidents being killed by Star Wars.
Murphy was too human which would have been less of a problem if they hadn't done some stupid reason to robotify his personality.
Micheal Keaton's slightly more moral version of Steve Jobs character went full evil retardly fast.
The tweest about Murphy's murder was incredibly obvious.
Message too long. Click here to view the full text.
I would have liked more humor and commercials, but again: it looks like you wanted a remake of the original (why does changing those two characters matter otherwise?). Again, I think a staight-up remake would be a bad idea. A more human Murphy allows a bit of body horror and a new take on it.
For the record, I say it's really good compared to the usual nostalgia schlock being served up to us lately.
Oh fuck yeah, the Real Mackenzies are great, and I love every version of that song. Try this too.
Eargasm. This prompted me to start digging up all the old soviet sci-fi movies, Solaris, stalker etc, some really out there stuff that I never saw as a kid.
I used to listen to Flosstradamus years ago when he was doing mashups, but I hadn't listened to him in years until the other, when I came across this. I'm not really into EDM music, but it just melted my face.
>this whole album
It's out, finally.
Go see it, it's excellent.
It was extremely predictable, and absolutely nothing about it blew me away. The only thing that I found funny was Quill dancing around like an idiot at the beginning of the movie. The entire rest of the movie I sat there like Mr. Bean on a roller coaster.
But not Quill dancing around like an idiot at the end of the movie?
All these spoilers are getting silly.
Yeah, well that's just, like, your opinion. Man.
Also, I'd do terrible, terrible things to Naomi Ryan, the Nova Corps Millenian assistant to Nova Prime, most notable at the end of the movie, standing at the holo-table when the Novas are thanking the Guardians for a job well done.
I liked the Collector's assistant
Man, it was somewhat difficult finding a SFW pic of her.
So netflix is making two more seasons
