- Virtual Hanami: a timelapse (?) video of a day's worth of cherry-blossom viewing in Kyoto, ending with that famous weeping cherry tree, all lit up at night, that I unwittingly took a photo of during our honeymoon because I thought it looked cool (but it had bare branches with crows perched on them at the time!). Can't be embedded. HD is a plus for viewing (took a while to load, though). Cheesy music likely a minus (is that a MIDI file?).

- I may not post this on Facebook as I think it's a repost from either here or there, but "This is Japan" photo-montage-video (...that's not really a time-lapse!) with the really repetitive piano music is still pretty cool (brief nudity warning, as photos of walls of porn videos are included). But, dear photographers, can you tell me how to get this kind of color in my photos? Is it something I can do? I've been crushing on this kind of look lately. I don't know why. I have some theories about how it's done but I would love some pointers. There are a few shots where I think it might be a bit too yellow, but anyway.

- remanence: variance - -an ACTUAL time-lapse video of several days in Tokyo. Click on the HD button to switch to the normal view if this takes too long to load, but for full effect, you should really just double-click on the video to watch it at Youtube, and view it on HD and full-screen, because it's very pretty despite the watermark.

I like the tones of some of the photos in this, too, but they're harder to pick up on. (And these photos I posted previously. I don't have the visual vocabulary to describe what's going on with the colors or the processing. HELP.)

- Stereographics/Small Planets/Ultra Fisheye photos of places in Japan; a Flickr set that I love unduly.

- World Sand Sculpture Festival in the Tottori Dunes, Japan's own mini-sandy-desert. The theme was "fairy tales and legends" this year. I'd rather see the Hokkaido snow festival, but this is kinda neat.

大きな箱とねこ: Big Box and Cat. It's a cat, trying to and eventually succeeding at jumping in, and out of, a box. That's pretty much it. Does what it says on the tin.

(Unrelatedly, I had always wondered how a Japanese restaurant could call itself something like Wagamama and be any good, but if Maki says it isn't, I'll take her word for it. (Even for Asian fusion it's no good, she says.)

Her recipes at justhungry.com and justbento.com are excellent, by the way.)
