Kato, what do you mean by “Middle Sexes”?


(kato3.gif)

… good question, Diane… Actually, I watched a documentary titled “Middle Sexes” at the Vancouver Public Library.

 



(lib70621a.png+lib70621a2)

“Actual List”

 

This is the list of movies I’ve recently viewed at the library… Look at the red-rectangled title in the above list!

I see… You watched “Middle Sexes” on May 25, huh?

That’s right.

 


(lib70621b.png)

“Actual Page”

 

I see… so you jotted down the following comment, huh?

This is a 75-minute American television documentary directed by Antony Thomas in 2005.

This film explores the issue of gender and sex, beginning with transgender women dancing at a nightclub.

Then it introduces you to the murder of Gwen Araujo, a teenage transwoman is described in detail by the narrator.


(gwen001.jpg)

 

Several acquaintances killed her after finding out that Gwen was born male because two of them had sexual relations with her.

The film then looks at different treatment of gender-variant and people of different sexualities across cultures and history.

Quite interesting is a story of heterosexual college men who were shown gay pornography.

Their physical response was measured.

Men who were considered homophobes were more aroused, but claimed they had no reaction.

This then goes back to Gwen Araujo, who was killed by two men who were insecure about their sexualities because they had sexual relations with her.

All of this supports the theory that people are more likely to get angry at sex, gender, and sexuality differences because they are insecure about their own sexuality or gender identity.

It is one of the profoundly thought-provoking documentaries I’ve ever watched.

I see… Because some people are insecure about their own sexuality or gender identity, they’re more likely to get angry at sex, gender, and sexuality differences, huh?

I think so.

So, Kato, what impressed you most in the above documentary?

In the film I see a tansgender woman called Calpernia Addams.

Calpernia Addams

 


(calpurnia2.jpg)

 

Calpernia Sarah Addams (born February 20, 1971) is an American author, actress, musician and spokesperson and activist for transgender rights and issues.

Addams grew up in Nashville, Tennessee.
She served as a Hospital Corpsman with the Navy and United States Marine Corps.

During her last year in the military, she came out as a transgender woman.
Addams chose the name “Calpernia” from the William Shakespeare play Julius Caesar (a variant spelling of Caesar’s wife Calpurnia) and its appearance on a tombstone in the film The Addams Family.

Career

In 2002, she formed Deep Stealth Productions in Hollywood with Andrea James.

 


(msexes03.jpg)

 

Deep Stealth creates educational and entertainment material around gender-identification issues and the experiences of differently-gendered people.

Addams and James coached Felicity Huffman for her Academy Award-nominated performance as a transgender woman in the film Transamerica.

At the Sundance debut of “Soldier’s Girl“, Addams met Jane Fonda, whose son Troy Garity had played Winchell.

 


(solgal02.jpg)

 

Fonda suggested Addams mount an all-transgender production of The Vagina Monologues.
The production was to contribute funds and help raise awareness of violence against women;
it became the subject of the 2006 documentary film Beautiful Daughters.

A reality television series entitled Transamerican Love Story, featuring Addams choosing among eight suitors, debuted February 11, 2008 on Logo TV.

In April 2008, Addams performed alongside Fonda, Glenn Close, Salma Hayek, Alicia Keys, and others in a tenth-anniversary production
of The Vagina Monologues at the Louisiana Superdome.

In May 2008, PFLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) chose Addams as PFLAG’s spokesperson for
their educational campaign, This Is Our Love Story.

Addams said, “I hope This Is Our Love Story will help young transgender people as they come out.
By seeing the happy, confident woman I’ve become,
I hope I can act as a role model for these young people at a critical moment in their development.”

Addams writes a blog on gender issues for Psychology Today.

Addams has released a single entitled “Stunning”, available on iTunes.
Addams co-produced the song “The Vagina Song” by Willam Belli, from his debut album The Wreckoning, and made a cameo in the song’s music video.

In 2015, Addams appeared in the international premiere of “Trans Scripts” a new play by Paul Lucas at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in Scotland.
The production received 24 four and five star reviews, a Fringe First Award, a High Commendation from Amnesty International
and was shortlisted for the Feminist Fest Award, the Best of Edinburgh Award, and the Holden Street Theater Award.

Personal life

In 1999, while working as a performer, Addams began dating PFC Barry Winchell.
Word of the relationship spread at Winchell’s Army base where he was harassed by fellow soldiers and ultimately murdered.
Winchell’s murder and the subsequent trial resulted in widespread press and a formal review of the U.S. “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (DADT) military policy, ordered by President Bill Clinton.

The case became a prominent example used to illustrate the failure of DADT to protect LGBT service members.
Addams’ and Winchell’s romance and the crimes of their abusers are depicted in the film: “Soldier’s Girl“, released in 2003.

Addams was portrayed by Lee Pace.
A subsequent New York Times article, “An Inconvenient Woman”, documented the marginalization and misrepresentation of transgender sexuality even by gay rights activists.


SOURCES: “Calpernia Addams”
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I see… So, Kato, you are quite attracted to the above transwoman, huh?

Yes, I am.

How come?

Well… she looks more feminine and prettier than an ordinary woman.

Do you really think so?

How about you, Diane?

Maybe so, but I think she is more like Pandora’s box.

Pandora’s box?  What do you mean by that?

You see, Kato,… Pandora opened the box and all the evils flew out, leaving only “Hope” inside once she had closed it again.

Yes, I know the episode, but what do you really mean by that?

As you jotted down in the above comment, because some people are insecure about their own sexuality or gender identity, they’re more likely to get angry at sex, gender, and sexuality differences.  While working as a performer, Calpernia Addams began dating PFC Barry Winchell.


(calpernia4.jpg)

Then word of the relationship spread at Winchell’s Army base where he was harassed by fellow soldiers and ultimately murdered, because those soldiers are insecure about their own sexuality.

I see… So you’re saying that Calpernia Addams made those soldiers awake their insecure gender identity, aren’t you?

Yes, I am… In due course, those soldiers got angry at Winchell and killed him.

By opening Pandora’s box, Calpernia Addams performed an action that might’ve seemed small or innocent, but that turned out to have severely detrimental and far-reaching negative consequences, eh?

You’re telling me, Kato… By the way, you also watched “Call me Malcolm.”  Tell me about it.

 


(lib70621c.png)

“Actual Page”

This is a 90-minute documentary about Malcolm—a transgender male.

He shares his reflections with candor, eloquence and compassion.

As his travels end in New York after meeting many transgender people, his future seems to hold greater opportunities than he ever could have dreamed.

It is an inspiring, informative and heartwarming documentary.


(malcolm01.jpg)

   Trailer

   Full movie

 

Malcolm used to be a girl.  And now in the final year of seminary after transgender surgery, he struggles with faith, love, and gender identity. In due course, he also met Calpernia Addams.


(malcolm02.jpg)

So Malcolm will eventually become a minister, huh?

Yes, actually, he’s already been ordained as minister.


(malcolm04.jpg)


(malcolm03.jpg)

Calpernia congratulates him.

Malcolm is a devoted Christian, huh?

Yes, he is as devoted as you are.

I’m NOT that devoted.

Don’t be so modest, Diane.  At least, you’ve been a regular churchgoer.

【Himiko’s Monologue】


(himiko22.gif)

Well…, what do you think about transgender people?

Transgender people are persons who have a gender identity or gender expression that differs from their assigned sex.

They are sometimes called transsexual if they desire medical assistance to transition from one sex to another.

Transgender is also an umbrella term: in addition to including people whose gender identity is the opposite of their assigned sex (trans men and trans women), it may include people who are not exclusively masculine or feminine.

Other definitions of transgender also include people who belong to a third gender, or conceptualize transgender people as a third gender.

Infrequently, the term transgender is defined very broadly to include cross-dressers, regardless of their gender identity.

Interestingly, transgender people may identify as heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, asexual, etc., or may consider conventional sexual orientation labels inadequate or inapplicable.

It is so complicated, huh?

Therefore, most transgender people might face discrimination at and in accessing work, public accommodations, and healthcare.

They are not legally protected from discrimination in many countries.


(calpurnia3.jpg)

 

 


(calpurnia2.jpg)

 

So, I think Calpernia is quite brave to make a decision to transform her male self into female self.

Well, you can live your life ONLY once.

So, it’s your choice to transform yourself or to stay as you are.

In any case, I expect Kato will write another interesting article soon.

So please come back to see me.

Have a nice day!

Bye bye …

Hi, I’m June Adams.

Kato is a real movie lover, who tries to watch 1001 movies.

As a matter of fact, he has already accomplished his goal.


(lib50909a.png)

『Actual List』


(june001.gif)

Kato watched “The Arabian Nights” or “One Thousand and One Nights” as his 1001th movie.

You might just as well want to view it.


(1001nite.jpg)


(1001nite10.jpg)

The stories in “the Arabian Nights” were collected over many centuries by various authors, translators, and scholars across West, Central, and South Asia and North Africa.

The tales themselves trace their roots back to ancient and medieval Arabic, Persian, Indian, Egyptian and Mesopotamian folklore and literature.

In particular, many tales were originally folk stories from the Caliphate era, while others, especially the frame story, are most probably drawn from the Pahlavi Persian work Hazār Afsān which in turn relied partly on Indian elements.

What is common throughout all the editions of the Nights is the initial frame story of the ruler Shahryār and his wife Scheherazade and the framing device incorporated throughout the tales themselves.

The stories proceed from this original tale.

Some are framed within other tales, while others begin and end of their own accord.

Some editions contain only a few hundred nights, while others include 1,001 or more.

“Enlarge!”

 

From: The Desk of ERIK GUNNAR
email: erikgunnar402@yahoo.com
FAX: 0044-8452992881

15-02-2017

Ms. Akira Kato
1100-2010 Robson Steet
Vancouver, BC V6G4K7
CANADA

 


(bean002.jpg)

 

Dear Akira,

I write to you in good faith and trust that you will take a moment to consider the contents of this letter.
In 2006, a Canadian man by the name of David Kato opened a high interest account with a local bank in UK.
Investments made on his behalf by the Bank saw Mr. Kato’s portfolio (initially valued at 4.8 million USD) increase by 300,000 thousand USD to 5.1 million USD by the end of the financial year.

In 2008 before the world financial crisis, the Bank received instructions to liquidate and transfer by cash, the principle (4.8 million USD) to Canada, where it was understood Mr. Kato intended to invest the money.
Arrangements were made for Mr. Kato to come into the bank and confirm the instruction but unfortunately, he never came, that was the last heard of Mr. Kato.
In 2012 when bank’s investigation revealed that Mr. Kato suffered a calamitous death.

The investigation also revealed that he died intestate.
All attempts to identify any living relatives—however distant—have yielded no results.
Mr. Kato would seem to have had no living relatives.
Having read the letter this far, two questions, no doubt, spring to your mind; firstly, what is my involvement in this and why have I contacted you?
The answer to your first question is quite simple.
My knowledge and involvement in this matter stem from the fact that I am employed by Bank as a Business Relations Manager.
It is on this basis that I decided to contact you.

I propose to make you the beneficiary of Mr. Kato’s estate with a view to you and I splitting the proceeds.
As outlandish as this might seem, I sincerely believe this venture is both plausible and achievable.
I will submit your details to my Bank as Mr. Kato’s relative.
Verifying your identity with information supplied by me then becomes a routine matter and once satisfied that you are who I say you are, the Bank will then instruct the Central Bank to make the funds in Mr. Kato’s account payable to you.
No eyebrows will be raised since you are a Canadian resident and have the same last name with the deceased.

Here in UK, the alternative is a simple one; when the funds remain unclaimed they eventually revert back to the state which will happen by the end of financial year of 2017.
In contacting you, I have explosed myself and I can only hope that by so doing, I have not compromised my livelihood and welfare of my wife and children.

I hope you will consider the facts as contained in this letter and make the decision to contact me in order to take this delicate matter forward.

 

ERIK GUNNAR


(kato3.gif)

Diane, I’ve received the above letter.


(diane02.gif)

Yes, I realize that, but something is fishy.

What do you mean?

First of all, Erik thinks you’re a woman.

I know… Most people living in North America quite often consider my Japanese first name to be feminine… That’s why I insist that my Canadian name is Kato Akira Kaato.

Kato, do you really think you’ll become a millionaire?

Yes, I do… Once I reply to the above letter, I’ll be able to receive more than one million USD… That’s what it says.

Do you really believe that?

Yes… Why not?

Don’t be an easy prey, Kato.

What do you mean by that?

Have you ever heard of a Nigerian letter scam?

Nigerian letter scam


(scam002.jpg)

 

Nigerian letter scam or an advance-fee scam is a type of fraud and one of the most common types of confidence trick.
The scam typically involves promising the victim a significant share of a large sum of money, in return for a small up-front payment, which the fraudster requires in order to obtain the large sum.
If a victim makes the payment, the fraudster either invents a series of further fees for the victim, or simply disappears.

There are many variations on this type of scam, including the 419 scam, the Spanish Prisoner scam, the black money scam and the Detroit-Buffalo scam.
The scam has been used with fax and traditional mail, and is now prevalent in online communications like emails.

Online versions of the scam originate primarily in the United States, the United Kingdom and Nigeria, with Ivory Coast, Togo, South Africa, Benin, the Netherlands, and Spain also having high incidences of such fraud.
The scam messages often claim to originate in Nigeria, but usually this is not true.

The number “419” refers to the section of the Nigerian Criminal Code dealing with fraud, the charges and penalties for offenders.

 


(scam010.jpg)


SOURCE: “Advance-fee scam”
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

If you reply to the above letter, Erik will ask you for an up-front payment—probably, a couple of thousand dollars—to obtain 5.1 million USD specified in the above letter.

No kidding! How come you’re so sure about that?

That’s the way the fraudster makes some money… Look at the above video clip.

I don’t believe it.

To be on the safe side, I’ll show you another video.


(scam011.jpg)

You see, Kato, there are so many victims out there… If you’re greedy, you’ll become an easy prey for the fraudster.

What if the above letter is a genuine offer?

I’ll tell you, Kato, it is a letter for an advance-fee scam.

How come you’re so sure about it.

Firstly, Erik writes as follows:


(bean002.jpg)

 

I will submit your details to my Bank as Mr. Kato’s relative.

Verifying your identity with information supplied by me then becomes a routine matter and once satisfied that you are who I say you are, the Bank will then instruct the Central Bank to make the funds in Mr. Kato’s account payable to you.

Erik is stupid enough to consider you as a female. The executive of the Central Bank is NOT that stupid and find out that you’re a man. He will never release the fund to you.

What if I disguise myself as a female?


(joso110b.jpg)


(xdress02b.jpg)

Don’t be ridiculous… You’ll never be able to fool the executive of the Central Bank.

Then I’ll ask you to take the money for me.

I don’t want to get involved in this scam… Secondly, how many persons named “Kato” are living in Canada?

Probably, quite a few.

Look at the following search result:


(gog70324a.png)


“Enlarge!”

“Search now!”

Wow! 11,900,000 … I can hardly believe that.

Anyway, Erik must have sent the same contents to many people whose family name is “Kato.”

No kidding!

By now, Erik might have been arrested… I searched the news for you:


(gog70324b.png)


“Enlarge!”

“Search now!”

Gee… There are 196 results.

Erik Gunnar must be dealt in one of the above news.

I’ve cheked the above articles briefy one by one, but Erik Gunnar of UK hasn’t shown up in any article.

Well… Believe me, Kato… He will… He will appear in the near future.


(dianelin3.jpg)

【Himiko’s Monologue】


(himiko22.gif)

Well…, do you want to become a millionaire?

You see, money is only means to achieve your life goal—NOT definitely an end itself.

You believe ot not, some millionaires end up with their miserable death.

Think about it.

By the way, you certainly know about this famous billionaire.

What do you think about the Trump administration?

Can you see many happy and bright aspects of his policies?

Thousands gathered near the White house in response to US President Donald Trump’s immigration ban against nationals from seven countries where Muslims make up the majority of the population.

It marked the second consecutive weekend protest organized against Trump’s policies.

Here is five Nostradamus Predictions for 2017, in which you might be interested:


(trumpnos.jpg)

However, I really hope that 2017 will be a happy year.

In any case, I expect Kato will write another interesting article soon.

So please come back to see me.

Have a nice day!

I don’t believe it… Kato, did you actually celebrate the Christian festival?

Well… Actually, I’m an atheist.

Are you really an atheist?  I thought you were a Buddhist.

No, I’m NOT a Buddhist.

So, you don’t believe in the existence of deities nor gods, do you?

To be honest with you, Diane, I believe in my own god.

Your own god? … Who the heck is it?

I think I told you before… It is a traffic cop of this universe.

A traffic cop of this universe?… You gotta be kidding me… Are you really serious?

Yes, of course, I’m darn serious.


(collide01.jpg)

As you see, Diane, our Earth runs through this universe 1,000Km per second… And mind you, there have been no accidents since man appeared on the earth… So there must have been an extroadinary smart traffic cop in our universe.

I see… So, Kato, you consider this smart traffic cop to be your god, huh?

Yes, I do.

Well … then look at the following clip.


(jesus99.jpg)

Science Has Found Evidence Of God!?

Kato, you may just as well call your traffic cop “Jesus Christ.”

hmmmm… Diane, you’re smarter than I thought you were… By the way, how was your silent night?

Oh, it was marvellous and glorious.


(silent80.jpg)

I see… So, Diane, you enjoyed your silent night at your church, eh?

Yes, I did… So, Kato, how could you enjoy this New Year’s day with me?

I’ll dance with you like Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.


(astaire2.jpg)

I didn’t know that you can dance like Fred Astaire.

Oh, yes, I do dance like a magic dancer, and I’m crazy about salsa.


(salsa022b.jpg)

I can hardly believe it.

Believe it, Diane… They say, “One who believes will be saved.”

You’d better say, “One who believes in God will be saved.”

Anyway, I’m also crazy about mambo.

Can you actually dance like that?

You don’t believe it, do you?

‘Cause I’m worried too much. If you dance like hell, you might go to heaven with stroke.

The stories proceed from this original tale.

Some are framed within other tales, while others begin and end of their own accord.

Some editions contain only a few hundred nights, while others include 1,001 or more.

Trump Shock

Trump Shock

 


(trumpshk.jpg)


(trump802.jpg)


(trump803.jpg)


(trump804.jpg)

So most people are worried

whether or not the following

incident will happen.


(trump007.jpg)


(diane02.gif)

Kato, it is amazing to know that Donald Trump has been elected as the next US President.


(kato3.gif)

Yes, you’re telling me… I’m pretty sure that nobody in the world—except the poor unsatisfied Americans—expected Trump to win the race.

But many Americans aren’t happy to have Trump as the next president.

How do you know, Diane?

Well…, if you see the following Youtube clip, it’s obvious.


(trumprat2.jpg)

Manhattan, New York

A great number of New Yorkers were protesting in Manhattan when they got to know that Trump had been elected as their next president.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen such an angry protest in the previous US presidential elections.

As a matter of fact, there were some other protests:


(trumpla2.jpg)

Downtown, Los Angeles



(trumport.jpg)

In Portland, USA



(trumpen2.jpg)

In London, England



(trumpjpn.jpg)

Worldwide Reactions

So many people in the whole world aren’t happy to have Trump as the next US president, are they?

No, they are NOT…

But why not?

Well…, Donald Trump is telling the world in the following manner:


(trumplv2.jpg)

So many people in the world don’t like Trump’s ideas, do they?

No, they do NOT.

But how come so many people in the world don’t like Donald Trump?

…’Cause many people know about Trump’s shortcomings and dark secrets:

10 Shocking Donald Trump Facts


(trumpfct2.jpg)

If so many Americans know about Trump’s shortcomings and dark secrets, why did they choose him as the next president?

They dislike Hillary Clinton much more than Donald Trump, I suppose.

Diane, are you saying that the Americans choose the less worse candidate of the two?

I guess so.

I’m a little bit worried about him.

What do you mean by that, Kato?

Well…, if so many people dislike Donald Trump, there might be an out-of-mind fanatic or two.

So what?

You see, Diane, if such a maniac has a gun, he or she will shoot the next president.


(trump007.jpg)

I hope, such a horrible incident will never happen.

I don’t think Donald Trump has a keen desire on gun control… That means, the probability for such an incident will increase.

Kato, don’t be so pessimistic… Look at the bright side of the next Trump administration.

Like what?

I don’t know… Look for it by yourself.

It’s so hard to look at the bright side.

Well…, what do you think about the next Trump administration?

Can you see many happy and bright aspects of his policies?

Hi, I’m June Adams.

Kato is a real movie lover, who tries to watch 1001 movies.

As a matter of fact, he has already accomplished his goal.


(lib50909a.png)

『Actual List』


(june001.gif)

Kato watched “The Arabian Nights” or “One Thousand and One Nights” as his 1001th movie.

You might just as well want to view it.


(1001nite.jpg)


(1001nite10.jpg)

The stories in “the Arabian Nights” were collected over many centuries by various authors, translators, and scholars across West, Central, and South Asia and North Africa.

The tales themselves trace their roots back to ancient and medieval Arabic, Persian, Indian, Egyptian and Mesopotamian folklore and literature.

In particular, many tales were originally folk stories from the Caliphate era, while others, especially the frame story, are most probably drawn from the Pahlavi Persian work Hazār Afsān which in turn relied partly on Indian elements.

What is common throughout all the editions of the Nights is the initial frame story of the ruler Shahryār and his wife Scheherazade and the framing device incorporated throughout the tales themselves.

(sayuri201h.jpg)


(diane02.gif)

Kato, who is the above lady in East Indian costume?


(kato3.gif)

She is Madame Taliesin.

Is she your wife?

Oh, no… She is the queen of Halloween.

No kidding!

I’m dead serious!  She is MY queen of Halloween.

Are you telling the world that she is a queen of Halloween ONLY for you?

Yes, that’s right.  You’re telling the world, Diane.

But why is she wearing an East Indian costume instead of kimono?

Good question! … It is a long story.

Then make it short and tell me the story.

Well … When I arrived in my hometown, Gyoda, on Octover 19, it was so hot that Madame Taliesin welcomed me while bathing in bikini.


(sayuri82.jpg)

Kato, were you dreaming or what?  It was terribly cold in Vancouver on October 19.  No Vancouverites could take a dip in the water.

I know, I know, … I’m sure you were almost frozen to death, but I felt as if I were in Hawaii when I arrived in Japan on October 19.  As a matter of fact, on October 20, it was 28 degree in Gyoda—my hometown.

How come it’s so hot in your homwtown at this time of year?

Good question, Diane!  It is because Gyoda is famous for its fire festival.

(down11.gif)


(shibuya90.jpg)


(diane02.gif)

Kato, are you saying that the fire in the festival makes it hot in Gyoda at this time of year?


(kato3.gif)

Yes, you’re absolutely right.

I think you’re definitely kidding me.  Who could believe you?  By the way, who are the couple in the above video.  They seem to wear old Japanese costumes.

Yes, they do… The festival is about Konohanasakuya-hime and her husband.

Who is Konohanasakuya-hime?

She is a famous character in Japanese mythology.

Konohanasakuya-hime


(firef02.jpg)

Konohanasakuya-hime (木花咲耶姫) is the blossom-princess and symbol of delicate earthly life.

She is the daughter of the mountain god Ohoyamatsumi.

She is often considered an avatar of Japanese life, especially since her symbol is the sakura (cherry blossom).

Kono-hana is also the goddess of Mount Fuji and all volcanoes.

Kono-hana-hime is the wife of the god Ninigi.

She met him on the seashore and they fell in love.

Ninigi asked Oho-Yama, the father of Kono-hana-hime for her hand in marriage.

Oho-Yama proposed his older daughter, Iwa-Naga-hime, instead, but Ninigi had his heart set on Kono-hana because Iwa-Naga-hime was ugly.

Oho-Yama reluctantly agreed and Ninigi and Ko-no-hana married.

Because Ninigi refused Iwa-Naga-hime, the rock-princess, human lives are said to be short and fleeting, like the sakura blossoms, instead of enduring and long lasting, like stones.

Kono-hana became pregnant in just one night, causing suspicion in Ninigi.

He wondered if this was the child of another kami.

Kono-hana was enraged at Ninigi’s accusation and entered a doorless hut, which she then set fire to, declaring that the child would not be hurt if it were truly the offspring of Ninigi.

Inside the hut, Ko-no-hana had three sons, Hoderi, Hosuseri and Hoori.

Shrines have been built on Mount Fuji for Konohanasakuya-hime.


(fuji199.jpg)


(fuji198.jpg)

It is believed that she will keep Mount Fuji from erupting, but shrines to her at Kirishima have been repeatedly destroyed by volcanic eruptions.

She is also known for having tore up the Yatsugatake Mountains, because it was higher than Mount Fuji.


SOURCE: “Konohanasakuya-hime” from Wikipedia

I see… Quite interesting… But, Kato, how come Madame Taliesin wore an East Indian costume, instead of the traditional Japanese costume?

Diane, have you ever heard of an old saying—“Fight fire with fire”?

Yes, I have. But I can hardly understand why the above saying has to do with Madame Taliesin’s East Indian costume.

Well…, Madame Taliesin is crazy about East Indian currey.


(sayuri201.jpg)

Kato, are you saying that I’m crazy about East Indian curry?

Yes, I am. The other day, You ate Indian curry at Kumagaya Station shopping mall!


(binjdi01.jpg)


(binjdi02.jpg)

『Indian Curry@Kumagaya』

Even if you’re not addicted to East Indian curry, you’re still crazy about curry in general.

Do you have any proof?

Yes, of course.  You ate soup curry yesterday (November 4, 2015) at Neco Curry Shop.


(neco002.jpg)


(neco001.png)

『Actual Page』

Did you see me eat the soup curry?

Yes of course I did.  You ate it in front of me.  I couldn’t help but see you enjoying it to the hilt.


(neco003.jpg)


(neco006.png)

So, Kato, you enjoyed seeing my eating, huh?

Actually, I was a bit surprised.

Why is that?

…’Cause you told me that this place was a secret romantic spot.

Did I really say that?

Yes, you did.  You even showed me the following page:


(neco001b.png)

『Actual Page』

Then you even asked the owner to play some romantic music.

Did I?

Yes, you did.  You requested “Black Orfeus”—romantic Bossa Nova.


(orphe800.jpg)


(orphe801.jpg)

You told me, “I wish I could eat with you on the beach in Rio de Janeiro.

Did I really say that?

Yes, you did.  I’m pretty sure that if you hear the following music, you’ll certainly recall it.


(orphe802.jpg)

Now, Madame Taliesin, did you remember what you said at the time?

I’m afraid not.  There are no stages in that curry restaurant in the first place.

Is that right?

I’m quite positive, Kato, that you were probably daydreaming.


SOURCE: 『Soup Curry @ Gyoda』
(November 5, 2015)

You see, Diane, Madame Taliesin is crazy about curry. That is, she fights hot weather with hot East Indian curry.

Are you saying, Kato, that’s the reason Madame Taliesen wore an East Indian costume in the Halloween party?

Yes, that’s right!  You’re telling the world.


(laugh16.gif)

【Himiko’s Monologue】


(himiko22.gif)

Well…, have you enjoyed your Halloween party?

Me?  Of course, I did enjoy my Halloween party.

Actually, I’m always enjoying my Halloween party bacause I wear this classical Japanese costume almost everyday.

(diane02.gif)

Kato, what do you mean by “Trump @ Joke”?


(kato3.gif)

Well, Diane, when I heard the news that Donald Trum would run for the president of the United States, I thought it was a big joke.

I think many people thought so.

How about you, Diane?

Well … I consider him as an entertainer rather than a businessman.  So naturally he’s doing what he is supposed to do, I guess.

Trump is entertaining the people of this whole world, huh?

I’m just kidding.  

By the way, Diane, what do you think about the following 2005 story, in which Trump boasted about kissing women and groping their genitals without consent.


(trump808.jpg)

Well… if what he said is all true, then he should go to jail, but I think he bragged about it to show off he is a macho man.

I think he was telling the truth.

But last Sunday, during the second presidential debate, moderator Anderson Cooper asked Trump, “You bragged that you have sexually assaulted women. Do you understandd that?”  Then Trump replied that he had not actually done the things he had bragged about.

Trump lied.

How come you’re so sure, Kato?

…’Cause two women accuse Trump of groping them.

Holy cow! You must be kidding.

No kidding!  I picked up the paper this morning.

Two women accuse Trump of groping them


(leeds01.jpg)

The New York Times broke news late Wednesday that two women (Jesica Leeds, 74; and Rachel Crooks, 22) have come forward with accusations that Donald Trump touched and kissed them without consent.

According to the newspaper, three decadees ago while flying in first class, Leeds accuses Trump of grabbing her breasts and putting his hand up her skirt.

Crooks, meanwhile, claims that in 2005 she ran into the GOP presidential nominee at a Manhattan real estate firm where he began kissing her without consent.

At press time, Trump’s camp has not responded.


SOURCE: Page 4 “24 HOURS Vancouver”
Thursday, October 13, 2016

If their accusations are true, the Americans should not vote Trump for their president.

Anyway, Trump apologizes for the controversial video remarks.


(trump802.jpg)

His apologies were made before the above women’s accusations, I assume.

That’s right.  By the way, Hitler reacts to the news of the “Pussy” scandal.

You gotta be kidding, Kato.  How could Hitler possibly react to Trump’s remarks.

Well… it is a parody.  Just watch the following video clip:


(trump809.jpg)

It is really funny, but I think Donald Trum considers this as an insult.  I’d rather see real people’s reactions.

If you say so, watch Robert De Niro rip into Donald Trump:


(trump810.jpg)

Naturally, Donald Trump reacts to the above comments:


(trump811.jpg)

In any case, there were Donald Trump’s most idiotic moments in the past:


(nuke002.jpg)

What about Trump’s offense against Hillary Clinton?

Watch the following video clip:


(trump812.jpg)

So, Kato, you seem to go against Donald Trump.

That’s right.  Actually I like him, but I don’t want to see him become the president of the United States.

Why is that?

Please read the following article.

Former Trump Writer:

“I put lipstick on a pig”


(trump806.jpg)

Call it the Art of Regret: The ghostwriter who helped create the myth of Donald Trump as an omnipotent business titan admits now he was putting “lipstick on a pig.”

Tony Schwartz helped the GOP presidential candidate craft his 1987 bestseller, “The Art of the Deal,” and now says the title should have been “The Sociopath,” he told the “New Yorker.”

“I contributed to presenting Trump in a way that brought him wider attention and made him more appealing than he is,” Schwartz told the magazine.

Now, Schwartz is remorseful about his role in burnishing the Trump brand.

The writer now fears for the world if Trump is somehow elected in November.

“I genuinely believe that if Trump wins and gets the nuclear codes there is an excellent possibility it will lead to the end of the civilization,” he said.


(trump807.jpg)


(nuke001.jpg)


SOURCE: Page 8 “24 HOURS Vancouver”
Thursday, July 21, 2016

Like you said, Diane, Donald Trump is much of an entertainer—far from a politician.  If Trump becomes the president of the United States, he might press the nuclear button more likely than anybody else.

I see your point.


(laugh16.gif)

【Himiko’s Monologue】


(himiko22.gif)

Well…, we’re living in the free world.

So, even Doland Trump could become the US president.

However, when America sneezes, the whole world catches a cold.

I wish Americans would choose a politically healthy person for the next president.
