Impotence causes

That's a really cool project, and you've got the right balance of logic and emotion that's persuasive. I'm looking forward to seeing what kind of bus you end up with and how it will work for you.


I feel totally out of the loop on the whole Napoleon Dynamite thing. Everyone keeps telling me how funny it is, and quoting these nifty lines that seem better as some sort of subcontext than they were in the actual movie. I have heard that the movie was genius and innovative. To be honest, I watched as advised, and to me it seemed very MTV. Slick, Very Self-Aware, and Full of Itself. It was a movie of stereotypes...and perhaps there-in lies the genius, by making such a movie long after the 80's have ended. But to me it seemed a little vague and directionless. There was alot of the abstract that went into a tantalizing direction and then just vanished into a more obvious premise. Of course I'm writing this cold...since it has been a few months since I watch the DVD..but I only remember chuckling a couple of times. Napoleon Dynamite was the kid's name..that's what I got from the picture..but perhaps the absurdity of that concept doesn't translate well. The idea of a nerdy "bus guy" seems to fit into the Japanese cute cult while taking advantage of the train man craze..plus it offers a more connecting image of mass transit..something many Japanese people can relate to..It is a pointless and somewhat vapid title change..that's my two cents short of a dollar. I'm sure I'm way off..but then what do you expect from 0yaji? ;)


Thanks, Okay there ase Napolen type boy in everywhere. Then such Napoleons talk such conversation seriously or as joke? They are funny because Napolen looks so real or he made good parody?


There are always some Napoleon Dynamite type kids in every school. Every now and then they get abused by the jocks and teachers. Here are some memorable quote from the flick.

Pedro: Do you think people will vote for me?
Napoleon Dynamite: Heck yes! I'd vote for you.
Pedro: Like what are my skills?
Napoleon Dynamite: Well, you have a sweet bike. And you're really good at hooking up with chicks. Plus you're like the only guy at school who has a mustache.
