Japan-Ify Your Flash Drives

As the mascot for Japan's NHK television station, Domo Kun has turned into a celebrity all his own.  His fame grew so much that his popularity crossed over into the United States.

Today, Domo can be found on virtually any product including notebooks, T-shirts, mugs, pens, and even flash drives.

I'm a total computer geek, so when I learned that I could buy a flash drive that looked like one of my favorite Japanese characters...I TOTALLY FREAKED!

The flash drive is limited edition and holds one gig of memory.  It's pre-loaded with icons, animated shorts, a sound application and wallpapers.  You can find the drives at your local hot topic.

JapanLA aka The Best Online Store Ever

One day while i was online stalking one of my favorite Internet celebrities, Hanna Beth, I saw a link to JapanLA in one of her blogs. Like myself, Hanna is very into the Japanese urban counter culture.  I linked myself to JapanLA and was utterly amazed.

This is an online site where you can buy anything your Japanese loving heart desires.  They have everything from Gloomy Bear to Super Mario Bros. phone charms.  

Some of the items are really cheap, while the site also specializes in some of the more expensive imports, like the Tokidoki Sanrio collaboration.

The site is constantly being updated (I would know since I'm on it like, every day) and the amount of shipping is a small price to pay for the super cute things i get in the mail.

Charmmy Kitty, Not To Be Confused with Hello Kitty

Ok, so it really peeves me when people confuse Hello Kitty with Charmmy Kitty.  Charmmy is a white persian cat that Hello Kitty's papa gave to her as a gift.  

Charmmy is a really obedient pet and always listens to what Hello Kitty has to say.  Charmmy is most often seen wearing a lace ribbon and a necklace that holds the key to Hello Kitty's jewelry box.

C.K. loves anything that's bright and sparkly (just like me).  She's just precious!
