Korean man Marries Japanese Pillow

So folks, it is a sunny and beautiful day here in Kobe, Japan. Last night I found out some great news. My "unedited/blog style" You Tube channel, JLandKev just got You Tube partnership. that basically means I can make about $2.00 a month from it and can brand it with my own banners and whatnot.

Korean Man Marries Pillow

This isn't new news, but it is so weird that I just have to share it.

I saw this story on Brian in Jeollanam-do's blog. It is by far one of the best blogs about Korea out there!

Lee Jin-gyu fell for his 'dakimakura' - a kind of large, huggable pillow from Japan, often with a picture of a popular anime character printed on the side.

In Lee's case, his beloved pillow has an image of Fate Testarossa, from the 'magical girl' anime series Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha.

Now the 28-year-old otaku (a Japanese term that roughly translates to somewhere between 'obsessive' and 'nerd') has wed the pillow in a special ceremony, after fitting it out with a wedding dress for the service in front of a local priest. Their nuptials were eagerly chronicled by the local media.

Thanks for the kind words, Kevin.

Congratulations on the YouTube deal, though I must say I'm sick of seeing all the ads that have popped onto YouTube lately. The $2 a month will add up, and is money for what you do already. But, as somebody who has a couple ad programs on his site, I'll let you know you don't get a check until you cross a certain level. For Google Ads you get a check when you cross $100, and that can take a while.
