“Anna and Marnie” Austin, 2024

My friend and I went to the theater tonight to watch When Marnie Was There. I remember thinking it was very good, but now I’d rate it as “excellent.” Such an emotional film… it might even be one of my favorite Ghibli movies now!

I’m now practicing the song “Fine On The Outside” which is a strumming song, and something I haven’t really played before. Fun!

“The Marvels” Cedar Park, 2024

I spent my Saturday evening glued to the TV, enjoying a lineup that included The Marvels, Jimmy O. Yang’s comedy specials, and Star Wars: Tales of the Empire. It was a rare treat for me and a lot of fun. While I enjoyed all the shows, Kamala Khan (Ms. Marvel) was particularly entertaining and really stole the show in The Marvels.

“Nausicaa” Austin, 2024

I went to the theater with a friend to watch Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, and it was fantastic! Having only seen this Studio Ghibli classic on a small screen before, experiencing it on a big screen was truly amazing. The visuals and story were captivating, and the soundtrack was incredible. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and now I’m learning the main theme song on the ukulele.

“Silent Parade” Cedar Park, 2024

Tonight I watched the Detective Galileo movie “Silent Parade“. It starred the usual main cast, but this one really focused on Detective Kusanagi and the guilt he felt due to a failed investigation. I love this series of movies adaptations of the Keigo Hoshino novels. The mysteries are very clever, and you’re left guessing until the very end. Highly recommended! (the books too!)

Cowboy Bebop: The Movie

My friend and I went to see Cowboy Bebop: The Movie tonight. It was such a good film! The action was amazing, and the soundtrack was excellent. Highly recommended! I had seen the anime series before, and also the live action series, but had never seen the movie before. I’m glad I got to watch on the big screen. Really great!
