Learning to read Japanese is a little like running a marathon: it is a long, drawn out process, and it can get a little boring along the way. What we learners of Japanese need is a little fun now and then, something that brings a smile to our faces. As luck would have it, this book does just that. This magic trick is accomplished by the book's nine curious stories. Taken from the weekly magazine "Shukan Asahi," these stories, while true to life, verge on the hard to believe, and that's what evokes the magic element of fun.

Though Tails was her debut album, Loeb had already hit the stratosphere of the pop charts a year earlier with "Stay", a monster hit from the soundtrack of the film Reality Bites. "Stay" is also included on Tails, but the other 12 tracks demonstrate Loeb had more than one good song in her, even if none of them found similar success on the singles chart. Loeb's knack for infectious, buoyant pop shines through on such instantly catchy tunes as "Snow Day", "Rose-Colored Time" and "Waiting for Wednesday"; quieter, darker numbers such as "Hurricane", "Alone" and "Lisa Listen" reveal a more reflective side; and "Taffy" shows she's occasionally willing to let loose and rock as well.

In 2013, former Canadian Minister of Defense, Paul Hellyer, made a shocking claim–that there is a federation of extraterrestrial beings monitoring and guiding humanity. But why would such an esteemed politician make such a controversial announcement? Ancient Astronaut theorists believe evidence can be found throughout history to prove his claims are true. Stories of emperors, kings and pharaohs consulting a pantheon of nine gods can be found in virtually every culture across the globe. Even channeling sessions conducted by CIA scientists in the 1950s connected with an otherworldly group of entities called "The Nine" extraterrestrials here to influence the events on Earth.

What exactly happened during Sherlock Holmes's “great hiatus” after his supposed death and triumphant return three years later?

The Nine Ages of Nakedness is a 1969 British sex film, directed by Harrison Marks, and also starring Marks as himself and several of his (fictional) ancestors. Originally entitled The Seven Ages of Nakedness, a title inspired by John Gielgud’s one man show “The Seven Ages of Man,” in order to increase the film’s running time two more stories/ages had to be added. The film's publicity materials claimed the film featured “150 topless international lovelies;” however, as several female cast members make repeat performances in several of the film's stories, that number might be an exaggeration. Not long after he completed the film, Marks declared bankruptcy and sold all rights to it. The film is not owned by Marks’s estate, and the current rights owner is unknown. A DVD of the film was released in America in 2006; however, this release was unauthorized. Be warned that the picture quality is far from being crisp clear, see the screenshots and judge for yourself…
