what a great week! disney just released three more studio ghibli movies--the cat returns, porco rosso and naussica and i love them all!

i have to say that of the three my favorite is porco rosso just because it's so funny. but i love the other two as well!

and while i'm talking about great and wonderful things, i'd like to add that my back just pinged back into place while i was writing this after being super painful for three days! (i damaged it and my left knee in some stupid accident when i was 18. as a result of youthful indiscretion (i.e.--stupidity) my back goes out about twice a year. but it's all better now! hooray!!)

I love studio Ghibli, too. My favourites movies are Grave of the fireflies and Laputa, a castle in the sky, and Mononoke hime, and Chihiro...and, I love all of them...

oh, azusa! i love all of those movies that you've mentioned too!

my absoulte favorite though is totoro!

(porco rosso is my favorite of the three new ghibli movies just released in the states.)

I got my wife "Nausicaa" for her birthday, and now, of course, she wants the other two. I actually don't know what they're about yet, but Ghibli seldom disappoints.

you're so cool, kurt!

the other two are really great! (and you can get either "kiki's delivery service", "spirited away" or "castle in the sky" free when you buy all three. (save your proof of purchase!))

"porco rosso" is about a flying pig who's kind of a bounty hunter. only, he's not really. um, you'd really just have to see it. it's great!

and "the cat returns" is about a girl who is taken to the kingdom of cats after she saves the prince. the king of cats wants her to marry his son.

that's an oversimplification, of course. it's pretty great too, but it's my least favorite of the three.
