Hi Sean . I think it's to do with the traditional style of Japanese theatre called Kabuki. The West has more naturalistic threatre, but the Japanese have this traditional stylised threatre with colourful actors, exaggerated movements and voices. A lot of the Kabuki theatres went into films too.
Have a look
It sure got me!

Thanks Yoda! You don't even know how long that BBUSERNAME trick dumbfounded me for years!

HAha!!! Yoda, it's so funny because at 15 you knew html, and I'm JUST getting used to it now. I remember Linda checking in once in a while to make sure everything was good.

Who am I kidding? Nobody's purifying water with "clean linen".

Seriously, Yoda was like 18---younger---when he first started this site and I came on board. Amazing that I'd be the only troll. Haha!
I have been here the whole time... a very long time...
Where would we go?
