I just saw it in Europe too. LUFFED it. But hrm, is anyone still interested in talking about it? Anyway. I'm actually kind of glad I missed #1 in the theatre. Or maybe 'torn' is more accurate. I ended up missing out on the whole Crazy 88s scene in full cinematic glory... but I would have been pissed...

Whoa, I had NO idea the Streets were back in action. Better look into that before geezers decide to beat me down. I actually went and saw Calexico on wednesday night; that was pretty sweet. Something interesting about my music situation right now is that the Majestic Seagull (my 100-euro computer) o...

That's a traced photo of me sleeping on the ground from a year or two ago. TRACED WITH A MOUSE.

I lived in a vegetarian cooperative dorm for 2 semesters at my college, which taught me a lot in terms of nutrition and cooking chops. I'm no pro (I am SO impressed that there are actual <i>chefs</i> hanging out on this board - how cool is that?), but I got pretty good at adapting recipes, improvisi...

Whisper of the Heart is like Ghibli's best-kept secret or something. I'll second or third the recommendation. I think I was falling in love with the boy (forgot his name) by the time the movie was over - that scene where he's playing the violin is killer. Plus he's probably the hottest male protagon...

I gots no clue, man. All I know is that they're vile. Stuff might also depend on the type of squatter. Some of them grab names with the hope of reselling them at an above-market price; some others use them to sling porn (Sylvan Midgal's old godcomic.com URL recently got snagged by the latter group)....

Just a couple things I forgot to mention in my first post. 1. Phil, I never heard the original Castle of Cagliostro dub, but the new one (Manga Video did it) is pretty freakin' stellar. Everyone's voice is top-notch or above in terms of natural flow, fitting their character, and emoting appropriatel...

Kiki's is so brilliant. So few kids' films manage to get across big messages without being cloying, so it gets big kudos for that. And then, of course, the visual design and senses of place and mass are simply out of this world. Kazu nailed it with the coffee-and-cake comparison; the movie doesn't f...

No sex, but some naked cyborgs. And not really naked in a sexual way - I thought the whole building-the-bod thing in the opening credits was pretty icky. Plus, there's all the scenes where they emphasize that all the cyborgs weigh like 700 pounds or whatever and are thus a Hazzard to Navigation. Wh...

I LUFT IT!!! Bwa-ha, get it? Anyway, peeps are right, light colors look a lot more modern and feel a lot more comfy. Black backgrounds'll probably be cutting edge again in 3-5 years, but for now the wide-open feel jives a lot better with the palate (palette? OMG someone stop me) du jour. I think I ...

I saw the veins too. More near the brow, though; it's like it's leaves at the brow fading to paper at the top.

I get it, but like a lot of the people here, I. AM. Not a good test case. But anyway, there is one thing that occured to me re: giving an extra handle to people whose comics-eyes aren't so agile. You might add some spot color to highlight the thought bubble that surrounds the group of panels. I thin...

When I first saw it, I thought the hair looked kind of like leaves, or crumpled paper. Interesting subtext.

Ah, the great American label dispute. I should have guessed.

That's cool that they're willing to just defy and supply CDRs, though. Shows that they care.

I actually don't have any of their albums, but I found some mp3s on their site at one point after reading said Pitchfork piece. Like 'em a lot.

I first heard of them when I bought a split 7" they put out with Melt Banana that had a crying penis on the front. 5 songs on 1 side of a 7" running at 45 RPM = 8xWTF. 100% insane, I luff it.
