Just Another マニアック Monday

February 2, 2009

I made my monthly visit to Nakano Broadway this afternoon. For those of you who aren’t familiar, Broadway is the coolest place in all of Tokyo. It’s a shopping center filled with nothing but ‘maniac’ shops. Among the many things found there are: 1940s-present monster toys, anime cells, extremely rare pornographic phone cards, hyper-grotesque artwork, 1000+ different types of yo-yos, 1980s American toys (including Madballs!) used manga, etc etc etc. Anyhow, today I found a new vintage movie store tucked away in a corner on the top floor that I hadn’t noticed before and got these posters! The Creepshow one was a little pricey but worth it, the Nightmare on Elm Street 2 poster I almost passed on because it was my least favorite of the films but I really liked the graphic at the top, and I can’t even believe I found a Nightbreed poster there! It was cheap too! I also got a cell phone strap made by the same dude that makes THESE. There were a few other things that I really, really wanted but didn’t need. Maybe next month.

Only 1000 Yen!!!!

    I saw Nightbreed for the first time the other day. It was better than I thought it was going to be! Jeremy’s movie picks have been very hit or miss in the past, so I was geared up for another bust haha. We also watched Fire and Ice, which was sweet. He’s basically filling me in on things I’ve missed.
    Have you seen REPO! The Genetic Opera, yet? Definitely a must see.

    Whaaaat! That Nighbreed poster looks like a highschool scrapbook collage. I love it! Wait until I come there next month for your next run.
