Inspired by a kumquat (fortunella margarita) plant. Chinese put those in their home at New Year for good fortune (ain't everything in Chinese has something to do with good fortune?)
I'm not a really big fan of the living head, or "Tomak" genre. I feel that there really is not much you can do to the victim when all she has is her head. Ito Ōgure (Oh!Great) once said that a "living head" is the ultimate of body modification/mutilation. However I believe this also means that there's nowhere else to go, once you reach that point. This is also the reason why I'm not "into" the killing/necrophilia type of guro. Because, to me, a dead body is boring.
On a side note, I really, REALLY f**king hate firecrackers. I mean, fireworks are beautiful. But firecrackers are noisy, obnoxious, smelly, dangerous, and leave red crap all over the place.
Nothing pleases me more than a rainy Chinese New Year, which means less miniature explosives to set-off for the occasion.
