How about a thread to post links to music, clips, and anything else that you feel is a fun, yet potentially educational, break from general studies? ^_^

IE, an easy one for beginners (but still hilarious for those who know their stuff):

A skit on the joys of using Japan's ATMs. Don't cheat! Put a piece of paper in front of your monitor or something to cover up the subs! If you're at a lower level, see if you can pick out and scribble down some words or expressions as you listen.

<<respond to above post, loved the
劇団ひとり - おやじ狩り video.

one of the words in the vid i guess to help anyone understand it.
挑発 (チョウハツ):
定義~相手を刺激して、事件や紛争などを引き起こすように、また、好奇心や欲情などをかきたてるようにしむけること
Got a sentence from it too:
俺は丸腰だぜ。 殴れよ

I loved him densha otoko but I hate that drama...

I found this hilarious.

what he said here is pretty simple (easy to undestand) yet interesting
I tihnk you can infer the noun if you dont know it.
- I love the dame arashi show too & she's on it and so is matun jun obviously, it's just funny.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6JT6k7ob_nM
i don't about EXILE but this was mad funny.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xWQzwuFJf88&feature=related
i think this arashi no shukudai episode is pretty funny (from like 2nd 3rd part, i always skip the food eating part btw.)whether you know a little japanese or alot but if you know/can understand it's even more funny. there's lots of subs so you can look stuff up.

I've been watching 笑点 (Shouten) lately. It's a weekly televised comedy show that's been running for 40 years in Japan. Some of it can be a bit difficult because of cultural references and wordplay and the like, but I've found it quite entertaining and educational. It's done in a similar aesthetic style to rakugo (落語), though it's called oogiri (大喜利).

chatpad

I don't know if it'll help with your japanese necessarily but it could be fun cause you get to talk to japanese people. the whole point of the site is you get talk with strangers. have fun chatting!

EDIT: there's weirdos on here too. just curse them out in english lolz XD

Holy cow. Wow. Amazing finding :D Its a really good site to just sit and chat casually. Thanks midori-

EDIT: Then I got lucky with the normal ones. Anyways, for better long-term conversation, I think Lang-8 is the best XD

Heh, I tried out chatpad and when it inevitably came up that I'm not Japanese, he said he heard of Colorado from Monopoly. I was kind of surprised, ended up talking about Monopoly for a while, and then he quit randomly after many へーs

Somewhat awkward, I'm not good at talking to random people in any language though. I'll probably stick with lang-8 too, but it's interesting.

Pretty awesome.

But having to read & translate Kanji in real time is hard xD

EDIT: I asked someone to use only Hiragana & they did. They are nice people there! I've been talking to them for 2 hours non-stop =P

Great find!

I found this pretty funny
one of arashi-week-takeover thing.

It's interesting how the mcdonald farm song lyrics' E I E I O sounds like iya iya yo.

another
i don't know most of the people they called out... of course maybe a couple of them by their face rather than their name

feel better if you're still in earlier stages and can't read much kanji - this other girl who's name is suzanne's pretty dumb too. I just find it really funny not to be mean or condesecending... just really shocking and interesting.

i love jarujaru sometimes.

school kakumei ep from a couple weeks back or more don't remembe.r
