Japan

Shisha, Shisa, Shisa Everywhere 2.0

I used the concept post ideas I had for Cherry Blossoms / Voices and applied it to Shisa, Shisa, Shisa Everywhere. It’s technically a reblog. Same words. Just different post idea, just newer and different pictures, and just a little tweaking.


The Sophomore Slump Recommends

Movie: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind – It’s briliiance and reverence when you put brain and heart complicatedly tied altogether in a screenplay. This film never missed in any of critic’s best-of lists.

Music: Elephant by The White Stripes – Very few artists who were able to pull out an album stretch. From 1999 – 2007 of their entire existence, all The White Stripes albums managed to become critically acclaimed, most especially their earlier works.

Here is The Hardest Button to Button… One of my most favorite videos of all time. A Michel Gondry directed music video, who also directed Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.


Now back to shisa …

    • Japan is still very fresh in my mind. Did you visit LA? I left a comment on your About section to see what’s up. Oh well. Whatever happened, I hope you had a great time.

  1. 🙂 Shisha in our language means mirror or glass…so the title had me confused 😉 good one..Okinawa also brings to memory Mr. Miyagi of “The Karate Kid series” movies ….its a beautiful place.. 🙂

    • Lion and dog in one, oooh I don’t know, that may be hard to tame even with mesmerizing eyes and alluring smiles. 😀 I think I’ll stick with the figurines.

  2. Love your Shisa pics, Rommel. I have a couple of Shisa lion dog bookends which I bought in China. They’re in storage at the moment. I’m looking forward to seeing them again some time next year. 🙂 I really enjoyed the music video.

    • I had a shisa pen holder at work. I left it. But I have two shisa displays at my place. It’s the 2nd and 5th picture.
      Glad to know you watched the video. A fun one, eh.

  3. I like the fact they are not in color. I can’t ever get too much color, Rommel. I must say, this is a FUN share. I really enjoyed strolling down and seeing the different Shisas scrolling down the page. 😉

  4. Excellent lesson on Shisas, Rommel. I’ve seen them around different places but never knew what they were called. I think most of them are pretty neat. Some are fierce; but some you pictured just made me laugh! Very interesting post! 😀

  5. Rommel, thank you for bringing the world of the shisas in such clarity ~ and with the great added benefit of listening to the White Stripes (one of my favorite albums). I’ve seen shisas for such a long time, just didn’t know anything about them! Cheers to a great weekend!

  6. what a culture rich post – and I learned much ’bout shishas – thanks – also – very cool video Rommel – it was nice to hear it while I perused the images – and they sure do have a classic – pure- and raw sound – also the artsy directing is worth a second watch.

    🙂 ❤
