Apparently your denunciation worked, because the video has been pulled.

"And finally, I denounce the cultural appropriation." This video has been removed by the user.

crap ... I'm always late to the party...

TimT

Yep. What was it?

TimT

The Chap magazine a while back had a feature on vintage wooden cars - Morgans. This isn't the article in question but it does show you one of the cars.

Darleen

Isn't it just human nature ... I enjoyed many of the links (utterly love the Sammy Davis and Swing/Street dancing ones) but I/we am/are just utterly intrigued by the One That Got Away.

DensityDuck

I really appreciate these Friday Emphemera posts. Thank you!

Ray

Potato toys: alright for you lucky bastards that have matches.

"I think it's broken",

Quick, get the coastguard, there's a humpbacked whale stuck in the lift.

Somewhere.

Barman

I made a wooden car once! It had a wood body, wood wheels and wood engine...

...it wooden go... :(

TimT

Barman. Did you do your block?

Hal

And finally, I denounce the cultural appropriation.

According to a basic bit of googlemancy, it's a video of Michael Jackson - Smooth Criminal - “Traditional Japanese Version” by Yoshimi Tsujimoto

David

Well caught, Hal. Link fixed.

Morning, all.

jones

"Morning, all."

Bah!....I suppose we have to go and do our homework now.......

Potato toys.

I used to make these with horse chestnuts when I was a kid. Assembly instructions not included.

It may be that I'm an old fart.

svh

At least it's free.

Spector. Very, very yes.

David

Very, very yes.

It does rather linger in the mind. I think I’d be willing to pay money to see that.

Failing that, I should be off to see the real thing next Friday.

Darleen

Thanks, Hal! Ichiban!

JuliaM

Those aquaria are just awesome...

Hal

Well caught, Hal. Link fixed.

Thanks, Hal! Ichiban!

Yer welcome . . . . Now if I could just nail down one of those massively lucrative jobs that some commentatees seem to have for doing such bits of tapping on a keyboard . . . on an other hand I also have a work history of getting work done rather than focusing on the posing and the politics, with posers and other hipsters finding that to be extremely annoying . . . .

R. Sherman

Sumo wrestlers of note.

David

Via Franklin.

Henry

Have a look at the In the Night Garden wiki page before someone sensible realises what's happened

> Screw the fish, admire the plants.

They had a, much smaller, contest for similar plants at the last Ekka (Queensland State Show). They're better in person.

> And finally, I denounce the cultural appropriation.

Just more evidence of the troublesome Occidentalism that's rampant in Japanese culture.

TimP

For more troublesome Occidentalism check out Kawaii Metal (Western heavy metal and Japanese girl bands):
