  1. Anyone going to this? I won't be able to make it to any of these shows but it would be lovely if someone could capture this for posterity.

    Das me. Sorry. Sometimes... I forget this isn't the old WATMM i.e. an open air drug market. I was only half serious about non-legal activities having fun. If it means anything now I have zero interest in getting my face melted off while I'm there. Added to the list. I want to feel like I'm in a William Gibson novel. Ghibli is on the list though we may not get in because gaijin-only tickets sold out online a month ago. Hopefully we can get some in a Lawsons. I really wish we could go outside of Tokyo too, but this is our short money trip. Those JR passes out of the city cost a grip. The furturest south we're going is Kawasaki to see some arcade that's supposed to look like Kowloon Walled City. I've looked into bath houses but have read they don't let in people with tattoos, to keep out Yakuza. Thanks for the tips everyone. If anyone has any more knowledge, it would be greatly appreciated.

    So I'm the asshole that booked a trip to Tokyo a few months before all this N. Korean escalation. If it's still standing I'll be there in November. Can anyone here recommend things to do in the area? Just know that I'm a very cheap man and the thrills don't necessarily have to be legal.

  12. Could you expound on this? As far as I know these aren't characters we've seen before. So, no one can claim the characters original ethnicities or genders have been changed. This question is for Joyrex, too. Sorry, I can't quote twice for some reason. I can't answer for Rubin, but if it is true they changed Phasma's gender just to satisfy the people complaining Star Wars doesn't have enough diversity, then I think they made a mistake. Ironically, I don't think we even find out Phasma is female in the movie (unless she sounds female), so it smacks even more of pandering to be politically correct. Personally, I couldn't care less - as others have said, as long as the actor (gender-neutral preferred term) is go at what they are hired to do, it does not matter if they are male or female - IF the character they are playing is supposed to be a particular gender. For instance, despite Steven Moffat's best efforts, I really don't think we'll see a female Doctor Who. The character has always been male, and regardless of Moffat's attempts to change canon by making it so Time Lords can change gender, I don't think the main character should. I don't think anyone knows for sure that they've changed anything to appease any crowd or group. So without proof it just sounds like you're annoyed because the character is now female or black or whatever. With a character that hasn't existed til this film! Is it the idea of an artist changing something to appeal to a larger audience? Because if so Star Wars might not be for you. We do know that Lucas cast Billy Dee because of complaints. I'm actually glad he did. I think the movie was better for it.
