Ages ago

I took a break after my thesis work that it took a while to get back into the swing. I went on a cruise to celebrate my big day and turning an appropriate but slightly large numerical age. I watched a ton of anime and read more Harry Potter. I joined Netflix and finished listening to my entire soundtrack/score collection consisting of over 250 CDs. It's been a big project getting away from my big project. Now I am back into the swing of things. Looking for full time employment and deciding what to do with the next few years of my life. No worries, the hard part has to be over.

For my purposes only a list of anime

Catching up on old Anime

So I finished Neon Genesis:Evangelion and though was disappointed with how the story ended, loved the images that flashed across the screen as it did. That sort of collage always plays well with me. Hopefully the movie will enlighten me a bit more on what exactly happened to Yugi.

Also watched the Truth and Betrayal Rorouni Kenshin Movie and was a flutter with samurais and romantic gestures. It truly was a masterpiece of anime.

Speaking of masterpieces, I watched Nausicaa again this past weekend in Japanese. It is growing on me but I still think Mononoke is better. I had to watch it again just to prove it too myself. I love the door opening scene and the scene where Ashitaka holds his sword in his mouth to shoot an arrow and the impending samuarais. God bless Miyazaki.

Lost in numbers

The repeating numbers

Just when the show, LOST, tends to be about the characters, mysteries abound around a set of numbers which could link everything. After reading numerous message boards about these numbers popping up everywhere from years on a job to rows on a connect four game, this show peaks my spidy skills once again to become my favorite of the season. So enchantingly produced and eerily connected, LOST sneaks its way to a season finale complete with birthing baby.
