Watching: a fun but not-Miyazaki Ghibli film, My Neighbors the Yamadas. Computer-graphicked, not the lush Miyazaki style at all, hence theatre was only half-full. The weeknight showing of Mimi wo Sumaseba was put in a small theatre and packed them in. No idea why they showed Yamadas on a Saturday night in a bigger venue, and not the other way round. I went to see it to see Japan, the way Mimi got me with its OMG Tokyo! nostalgia. And yes, Japan; possibly even Tokyo, though Grandma speaks Kansai-ben. But not the epiphany that Mimi wo Sumaseba was.
(Viewing not helped by current mystery malaise that knocks me out if I do too much, such as taking TTC to a film. Am so glad it's not a SARS year because otherwise I'd be sure I have SARS. This does not bode well for tomorrow's sold-out showing of Spirited Away.)
Listening: Kind of wondered what anyone thought Cohen's Boogie St was. Kerblonxed to discover that apparently it's connected to Singapore's Bugis St.
