So we got to talk to him for about half an hour before, I guess, someone else recognized him.

Apparently Savani's going to be at the Minneapolis convention which is within walking distance from my house.

On a somewhat related note, some friends of mine were in a mall where Bruce Campbell was signing and ended up standing behind him on the elevator.

I disagree with you so much about Nausicca, but overall an interesting list.

I know Miyazaki is 'untouchable', but when I read it I had visions of big budget spectacle. The animated film just didn't fullfill them. Perhaps an animated re-dux? I dunno.

The thing is that by cutting out the extraneous material it allows the film to focus on the two main characters. Turning it into some massively political war film would take away a lot of the great character work Miyazaki created.

But I thought the best character work was between Nausicca and the War God (I believe that's what it was called), and the sadness that came out of that relationship was really the biggest moment in the whole book for me. The ending of the animated film felt like a sprint to the happy ending, when reading the manga I really had the feeling that things weren't going to end up alright.

Ah, the audio commentary. I dunno anything quite like it. The only ones I don't like are commentary tracks with loooooooong pauses. Those drive me nuts.

I'll have to finish that other blog just for you Sam. I didn't think there was any interest.

I always forget to leave comments but count me in as another reader looking forward to the worst of blog. They combine two things I love very much: lists and audio commentaries.

Well okay then. I'll put these other things on the back burner for now.

I culled through my unused riffs and have five I'm ready to use. I figure I need five more (ten songs is probably good). Thanks for the support.

I agree about the Faster Pussycat musical. Get that shit done.

I can see it on the marquee. Faster Pussycat! Sing! Sing!

Wow, extremely lame. But I can picture it working. Sadly, my friend and I were planning on writing a Jonestown comedic musical. But somebody had done so a few years back. Bastards!

It might be lame, but it's still good.

Sucks about the Jonestown thing. It seems like every time I come up with an idea it's already been done like that.

Technically it's an American show, so I'm just a child, which is actually better.

I'm a child, children have too short of an attention span to hold a grudge. I forgave you before I finished writing that sentence.
