Suggested by Dion and supported by all the shoutbox peeps at the time, we're probably going to be running a Studio Ghibli-themed movie night this weekend, probably on Saturday night. HOPEFULLY it will all go smoothly, but we can't be sure until we try.

 

I'll be getting a listing of all the Ghibli films that my family owns tomorrow and so I'll throw up a multi-choice poll sometime tomorrow night to begin voting on which ones we'll watch. Odds are I'll be trying to stream my laptop through my big tv for this (since uh HDMi cables and HDTV = whynot), so I'll be connecting via phone to chat with you grubs for the duration.

 

Unless anybody knows any way I can livestream from my ps3, which would be ideal for the super sexy HD ability of that along with blu-ray quality films (since I think we have a few of them in blu-ray...)

 

 

REGARDLESS. Sound off if you'd be down for this! Bring popcorn, and jump in for one movie, two movies, or all three! We likely won't do more than 3 (MAYYYYBE 4 if totoro is one of them since that one's barely a film) but we also might do another to pick up some other films at a later date if there's enough interest in this.

 

If you have never seen any Studio Ghibli films, or you've only seen one or two, you should definitely come. These are films everyone should see at least once in their lives.

 

 

PS. We'll be watching in English audio (which is really good on these films so stfu for even thinking otherwise; I heard those groans) so don't worry about having to read icky subtitles. :3

Japanese audio for Ghibli films is better because the directors, writers, and producers are in the recording room with the voice actors actually directing them, so they're more true to the original spirit of the story. FLCL english audio benefited from a Japanese VA director working with the translators and English VA directors. Cowboy Bebop and GitS are the only other good English dubs!

 

But okay.

Well I put subtitles up anyway even if English because sometimes I hear people just fine but my mind doesn't translate the noise into words I understand.

Rurouni Kenshin?

Sure, babe. I've never seen more than one episode of it but it's alright. I think all the 90s dubbed anime were pretty good, or maybe it's our childhood memories of them that make them golden. Yu-Yu Hakusho for me, for example. I can't really imagine it sounding good in other than English. But it probably has good Japanese audio if I check.

I don't think we have Howl. I want Howl, but I don't think we have it.

 

Sure, babe. I've never seen more than one episode of it but it's alright.

*dies*

 

yeah, Yu Yu Hakusho is good in english. I've tried to watch Bebop in Japanese. I can't.

I'M SORRY EVERYTHING LOOKED RIGHT ON MY END SO I THOUGHT IT WAS WORKING WHEN I PLAYED THE MOVIE AT THE APPROPRIATE TIME AND DION EVEN SAID HE WAS READY AND EVERYTHING RIGHT BEFORE I PLAYED IT AND THEN THE GREMLIN'S BEEF NEEDED A RIDE HOME SO I WAS GONE FOR A HALF HOUR WHILE IT WAS PLAYING ON MY LAPTOP TO LITERALLY NO ONE AND WHEN I CAME HOME THE STREAM'S TIMER WAS STILL GOING; IT WAS OVER THREE HOURS AND IT WAS ALL HEY DUDE I'M STILL RUNNING NO WORRIES BUT IT WASN'T.

 

In short, we're doing Spirited Away tomorrow sometime. Likely sometime between 7 and 10.
