I'm afraid that that's a trend that's passing me by.. I just don't get it at all. I particularly don't like the combination of graphic violence and cuddly toys.

Probably started by an irate boyfriend whose girl friend brought over one too many plush to his apartment.

Its funny stuff.

I assume this is for adults who've had too much plush exposure and not for any kids?

I hope you liked those belgian beers, I didnt know they were sold in Japan.
Well Belgium isnt big in 3D industry, but we are big in beers.

I'm trying to change the 3D thing but I guess I'm not going to manage that.

More pix of Miki pleeeeaaaze!! Kawaii YO!


Well Belgium isnt big in 3D industry, but we are big in beers.

On my last trip to Belgium I went to one tiny pub in Ghent that had 300 diferent types of beer. I tried the Cherry Beer, yeah yeah I know it sounds bad :) I think it's was for grandmums.

wozzyke
11-25-2003, 04:48 PM
there are much women who drink that, men dont drink those beers that often, but that doesnt mean they are bad.
No reason to feel bad...

Why did I keep thinking of "Gulliver's Travels" while looking at these pics? ;)

Don't be suprised you can get Belgian beer in Japan, good beer can be found in most major metropolitan areas. I'm not a big fan of them, I prefer the beers of the British Isles (Guiness, Sam Smith's, Young's, Murphy's, etc...), but Belgian is definitely world class.
