Japan’s new salarymen…’WALLMONKEYS’

The new Japanese salaryman (3Yen / 2009-08-07) is now called a Wallmonkey
Wall-Monkey_low-rez

This is a good way for the hordes of restructured (3Yen / 2005-01-25) salarymen to be more at ease at home alone after forced early retirement (3Yen / 2006-11-14)—Amazon’s product description says that you:

can transform your lonely walls…with freshly printed Wallmonkeys vinyl decals

Doll-ing in Japan

Youtuber “millna” has what she calls a DOLL HOUSE where: “I want to serve you people as a doll figure!” (ということでドール姿でみなさんを接客したい!—millna @mi_te_yo)

According to Reuters, this self-proclaimed “virtual doll” has taken it to a new level by creating a body suit that looks like a doll and lets you move like a human″″

While the Reuters is totally off-base by calling this offshoot of “dolling” (3Yen / 2013-08-29) the “latest trend” in fashion modeling in Japan. Kigurumi/”dollers” (3Yen / 2015-03-06) have long been a tiny-but-dank subculture in Japan.

It’s 2018.
Those tiny 5.20 tires with pin-thin whitewalls didn’t become a thing until the 1980s in the Lowrider community. In 1968, a lowrider would have fat whitewalls mounted on five-spoke Cragars or Astro Supreme rims.
