Coincidentally I was looking into this recently too, Andrew. It is fascinating! I think the film “Gravity” portrayed this well (although it was a bit crap qua film). The bodies absolutely did look mummified.

Not gonna touch this one with a ten-foot pole, Morgana But I do thank you for bringing it to my attention! On the same topic, did you know that Jesus is buried in Aomori?
Seriously though, I think Japan is […]
Hey Isaac, glad you liked it! Let us know when you’ve got something new coming out!
I am more price sensitive than ever. $10.99 now seems like too much to pay for an e-book. I’ll take a gamble on $1.99 but not on $5.99 anymore. This is all the fault of indie authors who publish good stuff in the […]
Felicity Savage commented on the post, Why “I Don’t Like Anime” Doesn’t Really Make Sense 1 year, 6 months ago
I get your point, Morgana, and this post needed to be written! But as someone who has, yes, uttered the dread words “I don’t like anime” more than once in the past, I have to offer another explanation:

Isn’t it fascinating how readers can come away with such diametrically opposed opinions of the same story? That one pushed all the wrong buttons for me. What was the stand-out story of the anthology for you? (A […]
The food thing is yet another way in which Japan is / was 10-15 years ahead of the West IMO. Some years back I was puzzled (and frankly bored) by my Japanese friends’ tireless enthusiasm for discussing food. Flash […]
I wish I knew! I felt bad about using her without accreditation. Her photo comes from a list of “Worst Celebrity Selfies” or something like that.
Exactly, Will! I could have titled this piece “Against Identitarianism” if I had thought that useful word would be widely enough understood As you probably realize, my argument comes from the core belief that […]
Applause! “Any person, regardless of race, must be seen and appreciated as a complex human being who has arrived at any place and point in time via a unique history and journey and not for his/her […]
Hi Momato! Thanks for engaging. I appreciate your comment.
I do want to point out that nowhere in my piece do I state or imply that “the norm should be white.” In repudiating the “selfie-seeking” type of […]
The Oxford English Dictionary’s word of the year is “selfie.” If you’ve been living, er, in Tokyo with not a lot of time spent on social media, you may be surprised to learn that this is a current slang term for […]
I’m watching this trend carefully, too, Michael. One interesting thing I have noted is that my own behavior as a book buyer has changed. I expect lower prices now and will hesitate to buy an ebook at standard list […]
One’s Aspect to the Sun, by Sherry D. Ramsey, isn’t a good book. It isn’t even an interestingly bad book I might enjoy in a “hated it but it made me think” way. It’s just a semi-pro effort that doesn’t repay the […]
