Marimokkori Dance!


Marimokkori is a character popularized in HokkaidoJapan. Much like the Tamagochi, the name “Marimokkori” is a pun: marimo is the word for the green algae clusters that grow in some of Hokkaido‘s lakes, while mokkori is a Japanese slang term for an erection.

Marimokkori’s fame comes through merchandising, with a number of various souvenirs being sold in Hokkaid? and throughout Japan.

And here’s a Morimokkori boy band:


If you’re interested, you can also buy a Marimokkori CD (a great idea for Xmas ahah!)

Daido Moriyama on compact camera

youtube-daido-moriyama-on-compact-camera-_-e6a3aee5b1b1e5a4a7e98193e8ab96e99aa8e8baabe79bb8e6a99fDo you still think you need a Nikon D300, a Hasselblad or an extremely expensive lens to become a great photographer? Well, think again.

In this video Daido Moriyama explain you how a small compact camera is a lot better than a reflex to take street shots.

Of course, each person has his/her own style, maybe you (and me too) like to have the quality and versatility of a DSLR.. try to think If Ansel Adams have had just a compact camera to take photographs…

But the main points here are:

  • It’s not impossible to take great photos with a compact camera.
  • You can be a great photographer with any camera.
  • It’s all about creativity.

So, next time you have a slow lens, no flash, and you want to take street shots at night.. Don’t say it’s impossible, just bump your iso and use you camera creatively!
