And each comes with an object of mid-century tech to remind us that seeing, hearing, and speaking evil has never been harder to avoid
See no fake news…
…or let your eyeballs get sucked into the black hole of YouTube cat videos
Hear no dubious pitches from crypto hucksters…
…or scamsters claiming you should send them your life savings because, “Hey, it’s me!”

Speak no spoilers to those who have not yet watched

  1. Will you ever do a home tour…?? I imagine a room full of display shelves with all your gacha-gacha toys and a picture of you holding a cute feather dust brush.

    1. The only place I’ve seen them is outside a little shop on the Yanaka Ginza shopping street (near Sendagi Station) which is also quite a fun place to walk around. Happy hunting!^^;;

      1. Thanks Jonelle 🙂 xx I will check it out. We have been having a great time here yes it’s a paradise of weirdness (in the best kind of way) hehe
