The Devil IS Prada: Retribution

Posted in Blog by gaijinsmashnet on May 6, 2009

So I got dragged to a fashion show.
You may be thinking, for someone who hates shopping such as myself, a fashion show must be like walking straight into the lowermost depths of hell itself. And you would be absolutely right. It was like everything I hate about shopping, gathered into one place, super-sized, and then extra-concentrated for good measure. Being forced to watch Japanese TV for a week while Kathy Bates takes a sledgehammer to my feet would have been a far more enjoyable experience. Even if Ms. Bates were naked.
So then, why would I go to a fashion show? I’m married, and sometimes that means doing things you just don’t want to do. …A lot of the time, actually.
Some of you may be thinking “C’mon, it couldn’t have been that bad? A venue with dozens of hot models and you couldn’t get at least a little enjoyment out of that?” My brother-in-law asked me the same thing. I’ll tell you what I told him – yeah, there are hot models there. So what? Its not like any of them are going to jump off the stage and say “Oh Az, I can’t control myself in your incredibly sexy presence…I need you to take me backstage and ravage me right now!” And even in the extremely unlikely event that that actually happened, I was going with my wife, so there’d be nothing I could do about it anyway. If I want to ogle hot women, I may as well just stay at home and surf some internet porn, which would be far more productive.
The bro-in-law was a bit surprised by my answer. “So you’re telling me,” he continues, “if Ebi-chan was there, and she took off her bra and threw it at you and you caught it, you wouldn’t be excited about that?” Why would I be? My wife has a million bras laying around at home. What am I going to do with Ebi-chan’s bra? Its probably only an A-cup anyway. He was surprised at this answer as well, saying, “Well, if I was there I’d be excited.” I then offered my ticket to him, which he quickly refused. Hypocrite! Charlatan!


Honestly though, I’m a bit worried myself. I can remember a time when I used to get excited about looking at even moderately-attractive women. Now, unless I can actually do something about it, I just don’t care. Am I becoming a grumpy old man? I’m not even in my 30’s yet! What the hell?!
I would like to tell you more about the venue, but the honest to goodness truth is that I wasn’t paying attention for 99% of it. The wife understood my predicament and allowed me to bring along anything that would help ease my suffering. So I brought my PSP. While Japan’s top models strutted their stuff on the runaway, I staged an epic battle between Cloud Strife and Squall Leonhart to determine who is the most whiny emo bastard of the decade. For those keeping count, Squall won by a longshot.
I did notice a few interesting things though. As one might expect, 95% of the attendees were young girls. The 5% male population, much like me, seemed to be a captive audience. I scanned the seats and saw guys asleep, reading magazines, or with their eyes in the rafters daydreaming (probably about sports, sex, or anything that wasn’t a fashion show). For you young single guys, this could potentially be a paradise, although I have no idea how you would go about explaining how you ended up at a fashion show on your own free will.
I met a former student of mine from the Ghetto School. She recognized me, and was happy that I remembered her. She had also dragged her boyfriend along. The poor guy looked at me, and in an instant I knew what he was thinking – “Do you mean I still have to do this kind of crap ten years from now?!” Yes, yes you do. That’s why you don’t do it now, young gentleman. But he did get dragged along, so I hope she put out later or something. …I do not officially condone underage sex, just…I hope he was properly compensated for his sacrifice, is all.
And although not a rigid rule, Japanese crowds are sort of infamous for not getting buck-wild. They cheer, sure, but there isn’t a whole lot of screaming and going crazy as you might find at an American venue. The fashion show, for the most part, was no exception. There were some pretty big musical names there (AI, Juju for those who follow J-music), but the crowd never mustered more than a “barely-alive” cheer, something that both musicians commented on.
…That, however, changed drastically when one of the “cute” boys came out. Me and the missus were still on our way to our seats when one performer, a rock musician called Daigo, came out by surprise. The crowd went batshit insane. An entire horde of girls zerg-rushed their way to any point that could give them a decent view of the stage, screaming like banshees in the process. My wife doesn’t even particularly like Daigo, but she got caught up in the pandemonium. For fear of death (not kidding), I retreated to the back of the hall, safe in that it was the furthest point away from Daigo and as such there were no screaming psycho girls here. I was joined by two old Japanese ladies, who much like me, had no idea WTF was going on anymore.
I usually consider Japanese obasan to be an enemy of mine. Mostly because they’re unnaturally strong and do not fear death. Much like Klingons. However, as the three of us retreated from the stampede, our eyes met and we shared that Male Bonding Moment of Mutual Understanding. To see bitter enemies become friends in an instant – that should give you an idea just how ridiculous the stampede got. Meanwhile backstage, AI and Juju must be PISSED that for all their songwriting and vocal talents, in the end they lose out in hype factor to a guy who crosses his hands and makes “uiiiish!” noises.
So ultimately I survived the fashion show, but thanks in no small part to my PSP, and my ability to run the fuck away in the face of an incoming stampede of Japanese girls (I feel like my teacher days trained me for that exact moment). In the unfortunate event that I get dragged again next year, I’m bringing my laptop, a good DVD, and riot gear.

    I’m surprised Az must always be so flabbergasted at having his expectations adjusted.
    No, it’s not weird that you don’t find bras exciting. It’s a sign of sanity and maturity.
    Stil, you’re not thinking about the problem correctly. Scoring Ebi-chan’s bra means that you can *sell* it.
    You don’t want it. Some other Japanese guy does. I say let market forces take care of the rest.

    W00t! Thought we’d lost you for a bit there. Glad to see you back 🙂 No, you’re not grumpy, or just married. You’re turning into an obasan

  15. Chief said, on May 7, 2009 at 10:56 am

    Phew, thought we had lost you for a sec there Az. Glad to hear you’re still alive.
    I agree with what other people are saying. You’re not grumpy, you’re just married. While I can’t say it from personal experience, I have seen the same pattern among other people and they too worry that they’re turning into crotchety old men.
    I’ve seem to have noticed myself that Japanese people don’t seem to get excited (or allow themselves to get excited) at events. I saw a video of a Journey concert (one of the greatest bands ever) and noticed that almost everyone was just sitting down and watching even as Steve Perry was on the edge of the stage hitting those high-notes. I guess now that what he should have done was say “uiiiish” and end the show like that.

    Y’know when you said Daigo, a completely different person came to my mind (one of the Street Fighter variety). That and the Az/Obasan Mutual Defense Pact being signed make for another great post.
    It’s good to see you out and about having fun. It seems you and I share sentiments towards bras. Doesn’t matter who it’s coming off of, a bra is a bra.
    うぃっしゅ!
    I bet you had to endure hailstorms of that shit at the fashion show.
    Witnessing an all girl scream-fest is still a cool experience to have though.

    Oh, btw, getting enough Jeezy, Weezy, and Yeezy? Aren’t you going into hip hop withdrawal over there? How do you get your fix of fat beats?

  28. Vidgmchtr said, on May 8, 2009 at 1:22 am

    Ahh, yet another reason I’m glad I’m gay.
    For the uneducated straight guy, one would think that gay guys would absolutely LOVE to go to fashion shows.
    HEEEEEYELL NO. Maybe the gay guys you see on the Bravo network, but not in real life, where gay guys DON’T have lisps and fashion sense. We don’t care. We don’t care one bit.
    We don’t care about how women are dressed on a day-to-day basis, what makes a fashion show so special?
    So, if some how some woman dragged me to one of these snooze-fests (probably through hypnosis or something, clearly the man I’m with wouldn’t do such a horrible thing), I’d probably do the same thing as you Az, and bring my Nintendo DS and play some Rhythm Tengoku Gold. *thumbs up*

  29. Jon said, on May 8, 2009 at 5:08 am

    I recently had to spend a few hours in the evening sitting through a comedy “special” with Daigo as the guest of honour in the company of my future parents in-law (I couldn`t escape).
    At least I think it was Daigo, it was hard to tell as I kept smashing my head against the kotatsu in an attempt to make it all go away!

    (Az’s Note: 2,400 isn’t a bad price for it. Its okay.)

    Reminds me of when I lived in Tokyo I went to a club to see Djs Dragon and Isea (I think they’re called Black Jaxx or something). In the middle of a song the music just stopped and the house lights came up.
    I asked my gf what happened and she said they had to get ready for the fashion show. WTF? So we waited there for 30 minutes to watch some girls and gay looking westerners prance around in denim, ending with a girl in a giant denim ball. Kind of reminded me of an adult Veruca Salt.
    The high-light of the evening was my gf and her friend saw a blond, western model throwing up in the women’s bathroom because she was nervous. That day my gf learned westerners are often faking coolness when they are really scared.

    I don’t know this guy, but somehow, I imagined him as Don Kannoji. (Yes, that’s the “Bwahahahahahaha” spirit medium guy in Bleach who does something vaguely similar and who uses weird English in a vaguely pretentious way.)

    Anyway, my mom and auntie are models, so I have been to a few fashion shows. I don’t get whats supposed to be good about them; the clothes they wear, noone would be caught dead with them, regardless of how fashionable they are. I don’t even think girls really like them, they just want to appear as if they like them…

    Any concert, show, or venue where 90% of them are women is like taking a trip to estrogen beach during a hormone tsunami. I got forcefully dragged by my sack to a backstreet boys concert with my girl once and almost drowned in cleavage when the crowd decided to rush the stage.

    Glad to see you didn’t kick the bucket yet although with things like that it may happen eventually.
    I don’t quite get what Japanese girls find so likable about these faggots. An obasan friend of mine herself said it’s just a phase until they get to the point of liking more mature guys, particularly foreign. I don’t buy it.
    … Now pit Kefka and Sephiroth to determine who is the biggest mentally-unstable badass villain of the decade.

    Idol fangirls scare me too. I just don’t get that whole mentality, not to mention Daigo. I could see if it was Gackt or something, since his fans are almost as weird as he is, but Daigo…
    全然分かんない…
    Good thinking with bringing your psp, though. Btw, how is Dissadia? Maybe next time, you can use it’s video features to watch something good or something?

    This officially allows you to drag your wife to some sporting event or other, though she’ll prolly not follow through. And? Being an old curmudgeon has it’s perks, revel in it… at least she didn’t drag you to the fashion show and then threaten you with death if you even looked at another woman. ‘merican chicks are famous for that. When my ex did, I said: “I’m the photographer, dammit, I HAVE to look, that’s why I’m here.” I was in the doghouse for weeks, and she was constanly asking me about every shot I took…
    Basically, it can always be worse… so. cheer up, ‘ya old curmudgeon, you. 😉

    The “Zerg rush” comment just about killed me. LOL.
    My japanese teacher, even though she is the sweetest thing I have ever have come across, seems to have this dangerous underlying layer. You can barely detect it, but its there, and you know you’d better not cross her. Shes pretty americanized, but you cannot take the obaasan out of her! Scary.

    TGM: I don’t think the NBA, or basketball of any kind for that matter, is particularly big anywhere outside North America. I haven’t researched the matter exhaustively and could be mistaken, but that’s the impression I’ve got.
    > That’s sooo wrong for you wife to drag you to a fashion show
    Depends. Do you get to drag her to a Star Trek convention? I mean, fair’s fair if it flows in both directions.

    *shrug*. You just have to learn what to ignore. (I work in a public library, so obviously my coworkers are all female. Even library-oriented computer-technology conferences and system administrator groups tend to have significantly more women than men, which is fairly impressive considering the overall slant toward male in information technology generally. Also, patrons call me “ma’am” on the phone about five thousand times as often as “sir”; on the one hand, my voice is down in the bass range; on the other hand, I work at a library. Clearly based on these pieces of information it’s obvious I must be female. I knew I’d been working there too long when I realized this doesn’t bother me any more.)

    Don’t worry AZ, first wife is the practice wife, a necessary brutal beating along the path to enlightenment. You go through all that garbage for about 10 years, and when the barred doors swing open, and you take that walk down the green mile to freedom, the sunlight will never feel so good. On J-wife #2, and I can’t even figure out how I lasted 8 years with the first one anymore. W2 is so kind and nice, I sort of forgot that women had any capacity beyond a tendency for random acts of rage and disdain. Must be the Japanese mind control – but like any good disease, after you’ve recovered from your affliction, you can’t ever fall for it again. Then again, forget everything I wrote. I’m sure you made the right choice the first time around. Muhuhwhahahaha! Cheers dog, and good luck!

  66. AutumnFire said, on May 12, 2009 at 11:00 am

    What you need to do, Az is market a game in which Squall and Cloud can beat up guys like Daigo! And just to keep it legal you can always name his character Dayglo–which apparently his fingernails do anyway. Then rotate in new boytoys as crazes develop.
    Bonus points in the game if one of the boytoys like Dayglo can emo Sephiroth into a coma.

  67. Raj said, on May 12, 2009 at 11:00 am

    Daigo? I clicked on the YouTube link you provided and had the best laugh I have had for a week. Dude is wearing cutoff driving gloves and glittery nail polish while flashing some iteration of a “hang loose”sign, WTF is he thinking? Do all Japanese people think that you need to look ridiculous to rock? Thanks, man. I needed a good laugh today, and you delivered.
    BTW, fashion shows suck in general. I have never seen the need to sit in an audience and watch people wear clothes. The most absurd part of it though, is that people are cheering for shirts and pants.

    I can’t stand Daigo and he’s on TV everywhere you look, like this morning. He always wears some shittacular gloves.
    Fuck I got persuaded into seeing X Japan live during GW and there was a damn fashion show in the middle wtf.

    Wow…
    Daigo…isn’t my type of guy. What do you do when a guy looks prettier than you?
    You should have your own Gaijin Smash Logo on your Riot Gear.

    Hey, no one out-emos Cloud!
    BTW, recently discovered this blog as part of my never-ending quest to learn about all things Japanese (though my sister could have done without learning of the kancho), and I love it! Thank you for sharing all your wacky adventures.

    I actually think Daigo’s pretty hot, but that’s just me…

    You know, when you mentioned Daigo, the first thing that came to my mind was the legendary Streetfighter player. What a letdown.

    She took you to the fashion show instead of taking a friend? Fashion shows are a prissy “girls’ night out” type of thing. You don’t bring a guy to one, unless he’s very effeminite & into fashion on a very strange level. Glad you were able to survive, Az. I hope you never have to endure that again (and I love watching those things).
    I hadn’t been here in a while, then thought about coming back here this past week to see what I’d missed. I’m glad it wasn’t much; I’d have been here all night reading!

    Daigo can die in a fucking couch fire.
    and, props to Mrs. Az for letting you bring your PSP

    So I just came across this and figured you’d like it. Since I’m too lazy to bother opening my e-mail and I know you always check the comments I decided to put it here.

    Enjoy, Az.

    Lots of credit to you. I’m a female and I hate shopping. If one of my friend dragged me to a fashion show, I would have brought my PSP too.
    Don’t know who Daigo is so I had to google up the guy. Seriously who would date a guy who puts on more make up and takes longer with fixing his hair than a girl? They’re just good to look at and maybe for a one night stand.

    Man, I looked up Daigo, saw a headshot on google images and thought “hey, he’s not bad” (and I’m not really one for asian guys)… then I saw the video, and laughed until I cried.

    Why do you Americans always have such a big problem with underage sex? Why shouldn’t people just fuck when they feel ready, no matter how old they are? As long as they remember to use condoms, everything’s cool.

    Actually, I’d agree with the poster above. Daigo is hot. I happen to be a girl who likes Asian guys (and girls, but that’s another story), and a couple of my friends (in their 20’s) do, too. ^^ Hiroki Aiba, Kamenashi Kazuya, Daniel Henney, and Bou are my favourites. Pics:

    Bou http://i275.photobucket.com/albums/jj281/emoheartbrake_2008/bou.jpg
    (Yes, Bou’s a guy. Bite me.)
    I don’t know what exactly it is about “pretty boys” that girls like, but it’s definitely something. ^^
