JAPANESE GAME SHOWS


I seriously could youtube Japanese game shows all day long. 
There's just something about them that crack me up!
Us Americans are not good at copying their game shows. 
Take Wipeout for example.
No way. :/ Not even close.
I wish I was on "I Survived A Japanese Game Show"!

Watch this to make you laugh...

I've added some pics to FLICKR!
Some new.

Havin Fun



MMMM!!! CHURRRROSSS!!


I LOVE DANCING STORM TROOPERS

I'm sure you know of Jimmy Choo, right? Well, I think his son, Danny Choo, is so much cooler than a pair of high heels.

Ask me... why do I have such a current obsession with Storm Troopers?! I DON'T KNOW! But a DANCING Storm Trooper in JAPAN is so entertaining to me!

Go here and see what i'm talking about...



Can someone buy this backpack? Of course Disney is so smart to lead you into stores after attractions... and I saw this lil beauty... and fell in love... and let me tell ya... love doesn't come cheap.



Also, I just today discovered this jacket that I really wanna get my hands on.
The Marc Echo Storm Trooper hoodie. Santa?? Are you reading this?? No? Darn!

JOHNNY CUPCAKES JUMPS FOR CUPCAKES


On April 20th, 2008, I met up with the KING of cupcakes...
JOHNNY CUPCAKES!

Probably one of the most influential people i've met. He did things differently than most to get where he is today.

I randomly wrote him on myspace asking if the next time he was in California I could meet up with him and take jumping pictures of him. He wrote me back right away and said FOR SURE and gave me his number.

Just a couple weeks later I met up with him outside of Fred Segal in Santa Monica. He was out in California getting his Melrose store plans worked out. We sat down and ate after taking pictures. We shared a love for Pee Wee. We traded. My Pee Wee Herman cupcake painting for 2 Johnny Cupcake shirts. Fair trade I must say.

PEE WEE'S BIG ADVENTURES

Time to time I like to take Pee Wee out on adventures...
I notice people like to do the same thing I do...
Take pictures everywhere with some sort of object... whether it be Domo-Kun, Mickey Mouse, or Darth Vader.

Mine used to be my Hulk Hogan thumb wrestler.
For the last year it's been good ol' Pee Wee.

Here's just 3 of the DOZENS of pictures I have of Pee Wee...

Photo 1:
You jumping as HIGH as you can, preferably no cheating, but I understand some of you need help from a bed, a bench, a trampoline, your brothers back.

Photo 2:
You with a cupcake. Eating a cupcake. Holding a cupcake. Squishing the cupcake all over your face. Whatever pleases you.

Here's an example that I did with a stranger at Venice Beach:

Hey everyone!!!

My name is Jenny Rae! For as long as I can remember... i've LOVED cupcakes... and i've LOVED jumping pictures. 

Here's me at age 5.

I still love taking jumping pictures! There's just something about them that are so fun! 

I started a really cool idea a while back called, "WILL JUMP FOR CUPCAKES". Basically, what I do is take pictures of people jumping for cupcakes. Easy as that! I make cupcakes... and then I say... "HEY!! YOU!! WANNA JUMP FOR A CUPCAKE??" Usually I don't get turned down, because who would say no to jumping for a cupcake... really...

I'm new to this whole blogger thing so for now i'd like you to draw your attention to my cupcake myspace, which can be found at myspace.com/willjumpforcupcakes.
