I chanced upon this masked body roaming around the city park one weird afternoon. What seemed like a male anime character, “it” parades its Japanese cloak to the cheers of young onlookers (this must be a park mainstay). I hear them call out his name, and it sounded something like “Hibachi” or “Hitachi”, whatever and they tailed him like a Pied Piper. So “Mr. Hitachi” pauses for a while, shows them some real good eastern martial arts stuff, a jiujitsu here and and a kung fu there, pose for their cams, then walks off like a hero up to charm another set of audience.
Mind boggling. Truth is, Mr. Hibachi is a mystery to me. Freakish and deviant. Doesn’t speak a word or a sound. I followed his trail like a real stalker for a while but lost him in a crowd. Who he is, what’s his name? It feels like I’m the only person around here who’s not introduced to this male geisha. A result of my self-restraint for bumming face-sucked to that thing called TV.
Anyway, here’s the meat. Someday, I hope (and I believe that the possibility of this is big) search engines will break new grounds by playing a different function. Reverse function, that is. For example, I can paste or upload Mr. Hitachi’s image on Google. Then, Google will feed me with the appropriate key word or phrase or info about him. Whiz-bang!
Until that day, Mr. Hibachi remains a mystery to me.
