The Kitty Cat Delivery Service Turns 40 in Style!

Yamato Transport has been as much a Japanese institution as UPS is to the US. The company has been in business since 1919, and survived World War II. However, their most popular "Takkyoubin" (Home Delivery Mail) service is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, and they are celebrating with a wild commercial featuring dancing black cats and a traditional melody given a funky danceable twist.

CatConLA: The Sequel!

CatConLA: The Sequel!

CatConLA is a yearly event that was inspired by the rise of a global Internet cat culture. This year, CatConLA took up twice the space in the huge building, occupying not one but two floors. Attendance was up — 15,000 unique visitors, as opposed to 13,000 last year. There was a lot of overlap between the primary audience of the event — cat lovers — and other things our audience enjoys like visual storytelling, Asian art and pop culture, and cosplay.
