Can’t Get Enough of Hard Gay! Woooo!

Filed in Cult of Pop 1.0


I just found an excellent article about geinou, talento, and Hard Gay in the Japan Times. It’s great reading, and points out the limitation of Hard Gay’s act – that is, he’s funniest when he’s helping people out (the term the article uses is yonaoishi, “social improvement”). The author, Philip Brasor, makes a clear distinction between geino and talento and how the longevity of a comedian’s career (or shtick, as the case may be) depends on how much one develops his gei (talent).

Also, if you can read Japanese, check out Hard Gay’s very own blog!

Woooooo!!!

I can see that Wooo! getting tired real fast without the leather-shorts crotch thrust. I’ll try to keep it at a minimum from now on. (You really don’t want to see me in leather shorts.) But don’t let that stop your comments from Woooo-ing to your heart’s Hard Gay content!
