Gunkanjima-text-E: "I was twenty-two when I first visited the island I had dreamed about ever since childhood. Much like a fortress built upon the sea, surrounded by high walls,the island possessed an air of a small kingdom, where its denizens boasted 'There is nothing we don't have here.' They were right. They did have everything within their miniature kingdom - except a cemetery. But, the irony of it was proven by the passag e of time. Already, the island had been doomed to turn into an enormous graveyard."

rush on torture:

"Folks, these torture pictures with the women torturers, I mean Marv Albert looking at those pictures would say, "Hey, that doesn't look so bad." You know, if you really look at these pictures, I mean I don't know if it's just me but it looks like anything you'd see Madonna or Britney Spears do on stage. Maybe you can get an NEA grant for something like this. I mean this is something you can see at Lincoln Center from an NEA grant, maybe on Sex in the City: the Movie."

Raymondo's Dance-O-Rama:

"After World War II, many Japanese performers and recording artists had very successful careers adopting a variety of western styles ranging from Big Band to Cha-cha, but always with a distinctive eastern flavor. One vocal group that achieved tremendous popularity in this area was the duo of Emi and Umi Ito, better known as the Peanuts. Here in the west, we were treated to their vocal stylings in Japanese monster movies, wherein they played the tiny priestesses of Mothra. Here's one of their albums, a charming selection of pop tunes from 1963 (many sung in english)."
