  • Picked up iss. #1 of Warren Ellis's "Ignition City" yesterday; loving the setting and characters, eager to read more. #
  • @mcantor A lot of animators are huge Miyazaki fans (see direct Nausicaa reference in Mulan) so it wouldn't surprise me. in reply to mcantor #
  • @mcantor In Mulan, the little doll in the burned-out village is a direct shout-out to the opening scene of Nausicaa. in reply to mcantor #
  • @mcantor Also the bits where the eagle (hawk?) is flying around are inspired by the way Miyazaki animates flight in his films. in reply to mcantor #
  • @mcantor IIRC it's on the Mulan commentary track that the directors talk about how they are huge fans of Miyazaki. in reply to mcantor #
  • @mcantor wait till you're old and decrepit like me... ;-) in reply to mcantor #
  • Extending a giant middle finger of disapproval to Fox for deciding not to show Dollhouse season finale. Boo, hiss! #
  • @csitko And that's why I'm glad my tv has an LED bulb. Good luck! in reply to csitko #
  • Getting royally screwed by lack of AT&T signal, seemingly everywhere the past 2 days. Grr. #
  • Happy to discover that Bell's Oberon pairs nicely with carryout Thai basil beef. Yum. #
  • @jeffpuckett I'm still jealous of my college friends who were at a Moby concert where someone shouted "play Freebird"... and he did. in reply to jeffpuckett #
