Comments for Jane 5-4-2010

Sea has been in Tokyo with Mom, Mom’s   handmaiden friend, and Ronnie. Above, Sea and Ronnie visit a Cat Cafe where people pay $10 to hang out with some cats. Don’t even ask.

At first, Sea thought the cat thing was kind of perverted, and she should know; but now she gets it. I’m glad someone does!

What I don’t get is Ronnie. What happened to Amit?!?!? He’s still alive and blogging, so we don’t have to worry about him getting wacked. But what’s the Ronnie deal? Does she collect Asian-looking guys like shoes? Or is Ronnie pretending to be her boyfriend? Was he friends with Amit? Did Mom pay for Ronnie to fly to Tokyo or was he already there? Is Ronnie concerned about being an appendage to Sea?

Here’s the exciting news: Mom reports that they have some “last minute shopping” to do before they come home tomorrow! Yay!

Sea doesn’t want to hear your opinion but you can leave it here anyway. I will go first:

Dear Sea, The cat thing is stupid. No matter how you try, you’ll never be as “weird” as you want to be. Give up! Spending money is your true calling. Can’t wait to see your new crap! Love, xoSW

    Don’t you have an ironic scrunchie or something to give to your friend?

    I still cross my fingers someone subjects you to an Audrey Hepburn marathon you come out of wanting to be a nun. Think about how rebellious and avant-garde asceticism would be. Check out the Chūsonji Temple between toy stores and see if the life of a Buddhist nun makes a lot of sense.

  2. Dear Jane I thought you were going to the toy shops. Do the cats make bug belts?

  3. MJ says:

    Dear Sea,

    That picture of Ronnie mashing his face pensively against a Tokyo window made me wee my pants a bit with laughing. Keep it up!

    Dear Jane

    Why did you go to Tokyo and eat tex mex?

  5. Miggs says:

    Dear Sea,
    why did you think the cat cafe was perverted? People like cats. You’re standards of perversion must be very, very low.

  6. M says:

    Maybe ‘curating’ Asian-looking guys is the new shoes?

  7. Juri says:

    Dear Jane,

    I must say I am a little disappointed. What’s the deal with this $10 café? That sounds like something normal people could afford. Of course normal people do not pay for hanging out with cats, but that’s not the point.

    You should have hung out with $10 000 cats. Or had those $10 kitties made into a hat or a coat. That would have helped you at being “weird.”

    Let me know if you need more lessons. Please keep daddy’s credit card at hand when you call me.

    Next time you’re in Copenhagen you’re welcome to hang out with me. I promise to charge your daddy at least $10 000, plus another $20 000 if you take your Asian pet and Mum with you. This $10 nonsense has got to stop!

    I have no cats but we can fondle your Mum’s fur instead.

    Is Ronnie Sea’s boyfriend?

  9. Trashforce Reaper says:

    The cat cafes are designed for people who, due to lack of space in Tokyo, are unable to keep house-cats, but would like to cuddle a cat sometimes nonetheless. You can “adopt” a specific cat if you wish, I think, and then visit it there.

    I think that’s sort of understandable, but then I’m a total cat nut.

  10. Stuti says:

    Dear Jane,

    Cats are not staff.

    Please don’t refer to them as such.

    Thank you.

  11. Cricket9 says:

    Trashforce Reaper, I’m with you. I’m a cat nut too, and I would probably hang out in that cafe – the cats seem to be nice. Not sure what’s perverted about it, but then we know Jane is trying hard to be perverted. Must try harder I guess…

  12. Heinous says:

    Ronnie is in a pretty famous band (Neon Indian), whom I would assume is either touring Japan now, or he’s just got $$$ to burn.

  13. jemimah says:

    I sincerely doubt it’s any of his own $$$ he’s burning. I wouldn’t if I were him.

    Did anyone else suppress a giggle at the “Ronnie’s throwing his hair back silhouette” picture? Nao, the stuffed cat, can be seen scratching at the window in a frenzy, dying to get out – poor thing.

    Ultimately, Ronnie’s here for the pictures. He’s probably not even real.

  14. Neon Indian is famous? Damn, I am missing so much pop culture working in an office. Conformity sucks, man!

  15. RedHeadFashionista says:

    Jane! You didn’t photograph your own outfit for this post! What happened?
    And you’re right, a place where you go and pet cats for money is a bit weird. Kitty prostitution. Plus don’t you have dogs? I thought all people with dogs subsequently hated cats! Or maybe Jane just likes fluffy things. She can imagine turning them into hideous jackets or clutches.
    Right, I’m off to pet my real pets.

  16. Cathy says:

    Okay – Is there any chance Sea is just a huge punk?? Can one person be that shallow? Can one person be that conspicuously consumptive?? Really???

  17. Dru says:

    ^Redheadfashionista, I had a dog but I also had a cat when I was young. It’s cats and dogs that can’t coexist in peace, not people who can’t like both species.

    One of my local magazine shops is frequented by a pack of the owners’ very supercilious, very fluffy Persian cats. Hanging out with them is (shocker!) free. Cricket9 and Trashforce, you guys would probably like it.

    Ronald has nice fluffy hair. Though I would find it mildly odd, at any age past 18, to be trotting around a foreign city with a friend and the friend’s mom. Maybe an indie band boy is about as good an accessory as head-to-toe avant garde Japanese designer goodies, who knows.

    I hate to say it, but the Sea family’s amateur Japan obsession (or Japanese consumer goods/pop culture obsession, anyway) has become nothing short of laughable, notwithstanding Mom’s 80s-Tokyo-resident cred.

  18. patni says:

    kitty geishas! I am not sure i approve of prostituting out animals who cannot give informed consent. But I don’t approve of spending thousands of daddy’s dollars on ugly crap either. So i guess I am not “with it”
    Dear mr Poster child for….when you look all angsty out the window, it makes me want to wee a little too.

  19. Dru says:

    ^Juri- don’t give Jane delusions of becoming the next Cruella de Vil! (of cats).

  20. Alicia says:


    Do you mean to tell me that I could be charging people to come and play with my army of cats? And then I could encourage them to write about their experiences?


    People! Come to my house. I have six adorable breeds that you can cuddle, pet, and play with. Please deposit $10 into my Paypal account and come on by! Feel free to write your thoughts and feelings on my steno pad before you leave.

    GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE!!! Sorry for all the caps, but this is just stupid. How do you “get” a place that you have to PAY to play with a cat? I have three in my backyard that need playing with now.

    Is it a relief payment for not having to feed and clean up after one of your own? She totes around a stuffed one, so probably. Gah. That was the most stupid shit I’ve ever read. Ever.

    Cat Cafe…psssssssssssssssssssssssh…

  21. Alicia says:

    Annnnnnnnnd I probably should have read Trashforce’s comment first…the lack of space thing I get…sort of…

    My offer to all of you still stands. $10 gets you all the cuddle time you can bear.

  22. Dru says:

    Speaking of cats and Japan, I HIGHLY recommend the following (read right to left, please):

    Shit. I just outed myself as a manga-reading…person.

    But it’s SO DAMN CUTE. And unlicensed in English, so this is pretty much the best place to read it.

  23. Kapaali says:

    Dear Sea,
    I still hate you so much. You waste so much money on bullshit, when you could be doing so much good with it. You could buy loads of food to donate to soup kitchens or charity organizations that give out food baskets to poverty-stricken families. You could pay one less fortunate person’s bills for a month or two. You could sponsor an artist. You could send someone to college for a year. You could do any of those things with the money you blow from just ONE purchase of fucking ridiculous footwear that YOU. DON’T. NEED. Oh, girl, I GET the whole “omg SHOES” thing. I surely do, but you are dropping THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS of dollars on BULLSHIT. How you can do this with a clean conscience when people are starving in this country (and no, probably not very far from where you are…after all, you DO live in Texas, do you not?) is beyond me. Have fun, darling, but stop being such an asshole.

  24. caitlin says:

    I found this video on bryanboy’s blog- sea, amit, annnnd ronnie!!!!

  25. miss woo says:

    Having been to a cat cafe on my last vist in Tokyo it can be kind of a ‘perveted’ experience imo. You pay by the hour and get to pat cats that’s not terribly interested in you unless your offering them food or toys (but mostly food). It’s like visiting a host or hostess bar, but with coffee instead of Don Perignon. Same principle in buying the illusion of affection.

    my two cents etc.

    ps: though I did cringe when Sea mum describes CdG as in Tokyo as ‘so much cheaper!’, considering even a t shirt cost 8000yen (85 dollars?) there.

  26. Laurin says:

    Dear Jane,
    I’m glad to know you broke up with your original Asian boyfriend in favor of an Asian best friend in a band. You’re following the rich girl groupie guide perfectly. Soon enough you’ll have acquired a whole collection of minority friends to show off and then you can start sputtering deluded comments about your menagerie of tokens characters. It’ll be enlightening, I’m sure!


  27. dust says:

    I’ve just spontaneously imagined Sea burning her shoes in her backyard, as a sign of revolt or depression, or because cunt Terry told her so, that part of vision was unclear and blurry. First thought that ran through my mind was : go Sea!, and second was : what was her shoe size again?, in order to recalculate the amount of grief over all wasted shoes.
    Now, back in reality, it looks like if Sea would dare to end her bad old life, this is what she should do, among other important things (school). It wouldn’t be a waste, each burning shoe would be well worth it.

    Sweet dreams back to you, Sea

  28. Cricket9 says:

    miss woo, I have to tell you – my own cats are often not terribly interested in me, unless I’m offering them food or toys – but mostly food. Such is life with cats. I’m not sure why we humans put up with this, but we do; maybe for the moments when the cat shows affection and purrs like an engine, or the amusing antics…or dead mice brought to you as a present.
    Dru, I would like a store with bunch of persians; there is a vintage store in Toronto with a resident tabby, who greets the clients and gives them a thorough hands cleaning – with his tongue.
    Kapaali, I think Sea’s (and her Mom) approach is, as someone famous once said, “the poor will always be with us”, so why bother, better buy yet another hideously expensive piece of crap.

  29. This girl makes me ill.

  30. it might be weird, but i would totally pay 10 dollars to pet a shitload of cats.

  31. Ronnie is the new boyfriend. Jane doesn’t want to brand him yet till it’s suuuuper sure for both of them. Maybe Amit is cuter that’s why Jane can’t wait to tell the world about him before and now she’s very cautious which is still very obvious. Ronnie is the new boyfriend.

    so Amit is in Tokyo too and am waiting for him and Jane to reunite but till now, no Amit sighting.

    But here’s the Ex’s blog.

  32. ps, jane next time travel on your own. If you’re a real pervert like what you claim, just go on your own. No daddy and mommy to accompany you around. Maybe with a boyfriend but please this is the perfect age for you to ditch your mom. It’s getting very ew. Ew-er than new shoes every day.

  33. AmandaMichele says:

    Wait, Amit was actually her boyfriend? I thought that was a joke. Straight men do not generally keep fashion blogs or throw dinner parties with homemade pizzas (check out his blog). I can not imagine there was ever a question of Amit’s sexual preference. He is very cute though.

  34. kate says:

    Who cares, but I think Ronnie is actually really cute in a weird way. Too cute for Jane. I doubt they’re a couple. Probably just freakshow friends, which is always a good thing to have. The cat cafe post was the first time I was merely bored by Sea of Shoes and not disgusted or confused. Improvement…yay for cats that way.

  35. HelOnWheels says:

    I’m with Alicia. I will happily prostitute my two cats to anybody for the right price. And I won’t be exploiting those two buttheads as they LOVE humans. I’ll even start one of those frequent pet petting cards for the desperately cat deprived out there.

  36. Alicia says:

    I’ll go in with you @HelonWheels. Seriously. I need to put these cats to work!

  37. Leeleewasashehe says:

    First of all, I’d like to say that I’ve been a fan of you for a while Sister Wolf. You’re like the big sister I’ve always wanted. Second, it must’ve been a sign from God himself when I read this blog post today because while out and about in Baltimore, I discovered that Sea’s new boy toy will be in town in June due to his band booking a gig at the Sonar Club. Do you think God is telling me to go to the show so I can document how horrible and hipster-ish the whole thing is. Do you think Sea will be there? Will she wear god awful shoes? and most importantly, will Mother Sea be there? Can you picture her in an ocean of young, fresh twenty-somethings? She’d look out of place….

  38. Lezzies says:

    I think those cats are fake…which I guess makes the whole thing even more perverted.

  39. mimi says:

    before amit was outed as her boyfriend, you’ll notice on her last tokyo trip she has a photo were she was all “oh i ran into my friend amit” as if by coincidence.

    i really think ronnie is the current bf.

    sea – why do you bring boys with you on your mother-daughter tokyo sojourns and pretend that they aren’t your boyfriend?
