Nice to see someone on a national network call these pricks out on their hate-mongering and general small-mindedness. I had begun to get the feeling the American news media had devolved into two antagonistic camps comprising Jon Stewart and everyone else, but now I need there are some other voices of reason out there as [...]
Being here in Japan and disconnected from the US media (due to a lack of CNN or television access to other US news sources) I have seen little video of any of the candidates for President and instead mostly ingest news from print and online sources. So while I often read about Obama’s exceptional oratorical [...]
I’m kind of moved into the new place now, and my body is one big, throbbing ache. I still live among The Boxes and am progressing through them in a methodical, if not breathtakingly fast, fashion. Oh, and now I have WiFi. Yay! I promise to blog the new digs, but for now you can [...]
I searched Google for “microbiologist rod barton” after reading a piece in the Japan Times about him, only to find that the majority of sites carrying the story were outside the US. Little surprise, I suppose. Anyway, the gist of the story is this: An Australian scientist involved in the search for WMD claims US [...]
The latest example of Bush-style diplomacy–bullying and arm-twisting–was published in today’s Washington Post. It seems that the Bush Administration had a problem with IAEA head Mohamed ElBaradei’s reluctance to play ball and support the US by parroting their hardline stance regarding Iran’s recent interest in nuclear energy. (He also didn’t make any friends in Washington [...]

…seems to be a hot topic these days, at least on the many of the Progressive blogs I read. Two recent studies, one statistical analysis from UC Berkely and another report from Steven Freeman, point to clear irregularities in voter turnout in counties where electronic voting machines were used. Hardly surprising is that the use [...]
I stumbled across this excellent post whilst hopping around the Japan Bloggers webring. I though I might simply re-post some of the better links, but decided that it should be read in it’s entirety. Great site design, too, don’t you think?
I’m of the opinion that it’s important to boldly display one’s political colors, particularly in a time of intense political crisis like today. That’s why this blog, typically reserved for mundane fodder like baby photos and noodle shop reviews, is increasingly filled with the kind of acerbic prose you find in recent entries regarding the [...]
Just like that, it’s over. Amazing outcome, eh? Everyone I talk to here can’t believe how braindead Americans have become over the years. People look at me incredulously, asking things like, “Do they have different news there or something?” and “What, are they just incredibly stupid?” Four years of watching George Bush heartily shout FUCK [...]
Congratulations on finding my personal blog. It's been around in various incarnations since 1997, which is before blogs were called "blogs." See if you can top that.
My name is michael, and denbushi (電武士) is the now-dorky-seeming online name I made up back when I thought (ever so presciently) that some kind of unique nickname for the interwebs might be handy. Just for the record, it IS unique (even today!) except for this jujitsu variant/dojo in Puerto Rico which co-opted it without even asking me. If I had to cage-fight them for exclusive use of "denbushi" chances are good they'd win. But I'd still do it.
These days I live in Tokyo and mostly use my real name. A few years ago I founded a design and marketing agency called netwise. We do web and internet stuff. We're pretty good at it.
