Thanks for doing a timeline. I can't wait to see it. Here is some of my input. I don't know all of the places but based on my internet research and Tokyo travel books, here is what I know: 1. Hospital - nothing to add 2. Sputnick Pad/ IDEE: This might be office space and/or furniture. The website ha...

More evidence I'm watching LIT too much.....

I noticed last night that the scene/setting in which Charlotte and John are in their room talking about "lock and loll", her scarf, and smoking is the same scene where he is getting ready to go to Fukawaka and he shows her the champagne wrapped in yellow celophane. I believe it is scene 5 and 10. Jo...

Whose voice is used for Lauren?

Charlotte is talking to "Lauren" and complaining that she doesn't know who she married anymore. Whose voice is Lauren? I know Nancy Steiner (costumer for LIT) was Lydia Harris on the phone. I also read somewhere that Lance Accord's wife provided Lydia's handwriting in the letters/faxes. I'm now curi...

"Lost" on Location question

On the DVD, there is a short feature on the making of LIT called "Lost on Location". At one point in it, Ross Katz, the producer, is talking with Sofia about getting the plug pulled from them in the shabu shabu scene. Evidently the restaurant owners wanted the crew out of the restaurant by a certain...

I think this was addressed somewhere else, but I can't find it now. I'm trying to find out what the song is that is playing in the background during the photo shoot scene with Naka. I just need to find that song and Rick James' "Love Gun", and I can finish my personal soundtrack album ! I've been d...

Text beneath Avatar

I've been noticing some posters are "Traveler", some have "Awake" and some have "Wide Awake". Is this based on how long you've been a member? How many posts you've posted?

I'm just curious. :D

I did this over the long weekend. It was weird hearing "French Bob" singing in English. :o I also played it, with and without English subtitles, when Bob was speaking French to the Japanese surfer at the bar, just before the BB gun scene. I wanted to know what those 2 were talking about but nothing ...

Well, anyone knows what the old man(?) is saying? :) He is asking Bob how long he has been in Japan (Nippon). He tries to use his hands to verbalize by making a round clock and stopping his finger at a certain point. I've gotten this information from a post either here or IMDB. I wish someone would...

Japanese Story

This is another movie about falling for someone you'd never expect simply because you are alone in a foreign land. It was released around the same time as LIT and stars Toni Collette, a fabulous Australian actress. It is also directed and written by a female, although 2 different females. Toni's cha...

Bring your tape of Insomniac, I'll bring LIT and we can meet at the Park Hyatt. We'll watch them again then try to find the sights in real life, OK? :D You're right about the side street. I doubt it was the same one that Bob and Charlotte ran down but it reminded me of it. Actually some of the stree...

[quote Using the scene would have necessitated Bob and Charlotte making up during the very lunch they were fighting at. Charlotte is wearing Bob's sunglasses, so it would have to be assumed they were getting along again, which would have rendered the "fire alarm" scene that happens later pointless....

The anorexic father story caught my attention as well, but for a different reason. As she tells it, Kelly's father was told that the food he was given was poisoned. He then threw it up. I thought anorexia was the medical condition that occurs when people, usually young women, have a distorted view o...

I totally agree with you! The water aerobics scene is so funny. I had to download Rick James' "Love Gun", which is the background music, just to play in my car. It makes me smile. I also liked Kelly's press conference outtakes. Her facial expressions and reactions are so silly and superficial. In th...

Dave Attell's Insomniac: Sloshed in Translation

If any of you get the Comedy channel, check out Dave Attell's show this week, Insomniac. He visits Tokyo and samples numerous delicacies such as blowfish sushi, cod sperm and lots of "biru". He goes to many bars, restaurants and festivals in Tokyo and interviews Japanese people as well as ex pats. I...

Is it true about there being no violence in Japan. The travel books I've read about Tokyo all mention the fact that Tokyo is relatively crime-free for such a large, metropolitan city. It is also a "cash society" meaning that most restaurants, bars, hotels, accept only cash. Therefore, travelers mus...
