My Neighbor Totoro: Really cute but somehow not a whole lot of substance. The She's Got a Thing for a Spring of movies. But I would watch it again (and I would probably play She's Got a Thing for a Spring again). Some of the more bizarre qualities I exhibit (the stomping around and roaring) I used to think were Godzillan or T-rex-esque, but now I think they might be totoroid.

The DVD we borrowed from the library, which is apparently the only edition available in the US, was dubbed (who knows how well etc.) but supposedly Disney is going to release a subtitled version soon... Hold on, I've just been handed a late-breaking bulletin. It seems Disney won't have enough incentive to release the subtitled version unless copyright is extended another twenty years! Hey, why is this "bulletin" written with letters cut out from magazine headlines?

The Man in the White Suit: We just finished watching this movie and I checked my mail and there was spam Business Cooperation in Textile Products. So he's still at it.

Oh yeah, the movie. Not as funny as The Ladykillers, but a more interesting plot, with several good dramatic moments. The Lavender Hill Mob is now waiting at the library, so our Film Festival of the Long Now proceeds apace, in which we will eventually see all the Ealing comedies starring Alec Guinness.
