Cartoon Network starts showing Rurouni Kenshin today at 6:30pm. Yay! This is my second-favorite anime series ever, right behind Cowboy Bebop.
Saw Spirited Away today. Really great movie. Very imaginative. Check here for more information on Hayao Miyazaki.
Cowboy Bebop panel
Cowboy Bebop Panel from AXNY.
I picked up the first 3 Cowboy Bebop DVDs over the weekend, and I’ve really been enjoying them. I just finished watching the second disc. I’ve been looking at the episode notes at Jazz Messengers after watching each episode. There’s some neat stuff in the “references” section for each ep. In particular, I’ve been following up on the musical references by searching EMusic for whatever artists/songs are mentioned. I’ve found a lot of great stuff this way.
Got back from BAAF/AXNY this morning. I saw two great movies: Cowboy Bebop and Millennium Actress. The dealer’s room was way too crowded, though. I didn’t buy a thing, mostly just because I couldn’t get near any of the tables. Oh well.
Okay, things are just about back to normal now. No more big trips coming up. Just one little trip: BAAF, Labor Day weekend. I’m a little confused about the relationship between BAAF and AXNY. I guess I’ll have to read the web pages a little more carefully. Also, I’m trying to decide if I should stay in NYC on Friday or Saturday night. (I think I can still get a hotel room…)
Escaflowne and Metropolis
Saw Escaflowne and Metropolis today! Both good, Metropolis better than Escaflowne. Amazing soundtrack on Metropolis, too.
Off to San Jose Monday for PalmSource.
