Slumber Party Cafe in Akihabara

Soineya

Just when you thought Japan coudn’t get any weirder, in comes the Soineya ‘co-sleeping specialty shop’ a cafe in Akihabara (Where else…) where you can fork over $80 for “sleep” with a girl. I assume coffee is extra?

From the website via Google Translate (Because it’s funnier that way):

 Japan’s first! ? Ya “lying” from Akihabara shop of lying. I spend the time that you just feel the skin loose. Provides you with a simple and ultimate healing of lying.

Apparently they are opening another one in Shinjuku soon.

And just in case you were wondering:

The shop is strictly prohibited sexual act and adult services. If you were forced, there is the case you will be leaving the way.

The site has a list of profiles for the girls but it’s all just placeholders, and it looks like there is a Google calendar where you can schedule ahead. My Japanese isn’t good enough to make out much more from this site, but colour me bemused.

Interested? Want to follow then on Twitter? Well you can do that too! @akibasoineya

Their twitter feed is a bit odd, I did find this on it though…

Lumpy Space Princess Sleep Tank

This sleep tank from We Love Fine features my favorite Adventure Time character Lumpy Space Princess. You can also get a Jake one and a Finn one (See below). I didn’t even know what a sleep tank was before I saw this… They also do a while bunch of Adventure Time underwear and over wear for that matter…

 

I’m Not Entirely Sure I Could Sleep With This Above My Head

We bought an aquarium 6 or so months ago and since then we’ve been a little bit fish crazy, but I’m not entirely sure I could sleep with this thing above my head. It’s made by Acrylic Tank Manufacturing and cost a whopping $11,500 (That’s a little over £7k) but it’s still really cool, there are 650 Gallons of water in there, which means you can have a lot of fish…

I’ve been meaning to post some funky Aquariums for quite some time, so this is my excuse to post a few more like this bathroom sink for example by Italbrass it’s only $4,500:

Fish Aquarium Bathroom Sink

You know what in looking I’ve found a blog post by someone else that has 20 unusual aquariums… I’m not going to replicate their effort…

 

 

Possibly The Creepiest Duvet Cover I’ve Ever Seen

I’m not sure i could bring myself to sleep int his bed… It is/was sold by HELLS BLANKETS who appear to no longer have a presence anywhere but MySpace, as their online shop is occupied by domain squatters… In a way i can sleep easier in the knowledge that no one else will have this on their bed.

I do secretly want this, but maybe for a guest room… My guests would never be able to escape the feeling they were being watched. Mwa ha ha ha!

Baby Cult

This scares me, loads of people I went to school or in fact university with are married with kids, I go home once every couple of years and am surrounded by kids, I’m not talking babies actual walking talking children.

For some people once they become breeders they seem to go through a process of metamorphosis which strips them of the ability to converse about anything but their children. I’m not saying this happens to everyone, lots of people manage to maintain a really good balance between their own life and themselves, you can actually carry out a conversation with them that isn’t about their kids, others have no other topic of conversation.

Have they not watched any horror/action movies the person who incessantly talks about their kids is always the first to die!

Never Sleep Alone Bed Set

Etsy user christiemelissa will apparently make these to order, I love the blood splatter effect on the pillows and the fact that it matches up between the two pillows. At least I hope it’s an effect…

Set includes:
- duvet cover (case for duvet/comforter)
- 2 pillowcases

Standard bedding sizes only, white cotton fabric.

Dream Journal/Story Idea: The forgetful slumber

I don’t remember much about my dream last night apart from being in a situation where someone had cast a spell on me and a group of people where we would slowly lose our memories every time we went to sleep. So we had to stay awake at all costs less we forget who we were.

I think it would make an interesting premise for a short story.

Last thought before you go to sleep?

Does anyone ever remember what your last thought is before you go to sleep? I never can, I know it takes me ages to go to sleep, then I dream then I wake up.

It would be interesting if there was one particular thought that everyone had that was the equivelent of a sleep switch on your brain that would just send you to sleep. We could harness this to cure insomnia by just telling insomniacs to think this thought. but you could also cause some major havoc by making people think this thought by say eluding towards it on the radio, or in a newspaper.

Governments would be able to quell social unrest eluding to this thought to people who are rioting. How would you go about making people think a particular thought?

It kinda reminds me of the Brown note… But not really…
