B is for… Bamboo

B Is For Bob. Thank you, Facebook. Thank you, Ziggy. I'm not sure that I like that idea but I have bought and loved other music released by the dead Bob Marley. "Death is only the beginning," as mummy used to say. 

I got to thinking, Barley Mob or Mob Barley would be a good name for a band. As I (one-mind) should have suspected,  Mob Barley already exists. I haven't found out if they are any good yet, tho. 

That reminded me that I was thinking about "Psycho Farm Ecology" and found that there is --or was-- only one result for that google search. I love your graphic! Wn wiy reform dh inglish speling sistm tu biy mor fnetik wiy'l haf tu remembr tu priysrv dha originl speling uv sum uv dhous homonimz tu avoid knfyuzhn. One thing led to another and I found myself here

and then here:::House of Bamboo trailer (1955) Directed by Sam Fuller. Film-Noir. U.S. Army Investigator infiltrates a Tokyo crime syndicate and discovers fellow Americans running things. Starring Robert Ryan, Robert Stack, Shirley Yamaguchi, Cameron Mitchell, Sessue Hayakawa.

You can't tell much from the trailer, but this scene is so familiarly Japanese yet at the early postwar standard of living that I want to see it regardless of how corny it might be. 

Might as well give away some key plot details here. I think I'd like to get this dvd just to enjoy the widescreen postwar location shots in Japan. Hmmm. The Japanese version of this dvd is available-- at only twice the US price. I'd pay that if it was in 3D.
