So, the other day I was craving vagina and a visit to Innsmouth. A few minutes ago, reading issue # 1 of Caitlin R. Kiernan's Sirienia Digest
, I just about got all I wanted. Beautiful words conjuring sex, surgery, and strange sea things. That's what I call an evening well spent. If you're looking to have good evenings, I recommend subscribing.
Actually, I suppose it's morning for most people, now isn't it? I suppose I ought to make some attempt at sleeping earlier since I have about four Christmas presents left to buy.
In the real evening of . . . what day was it?--Sunday! On Sunday night I read this interview with Richard Taylor
of Weta workshop--those of you who've watched the special features on the Lord of the Rings
disks may remember him as the New Zealander with the peculiarly monotonous voice and Harry Potter glasses. Sounds like he's really
eager to make an Evangelion
movie, and he's eager to get the right
director *cough*Peter Jackson*cough*.
I do believe it's possible for the Evangelion
story to be made into a great live-action movie. But I think it'd be extremely easy to screw up, too, so I hope Taylor's earnestness has sufficient influence over ADV. Yes, I advocate influence, hahahahaha!
You may've noticed that Adult Swim's been showing Evangelion
lately. Part of me's happy that the show might be getting a bigger audience, but another part of me resents that so many people'll be seeing the show for the first time in its English dubbed format. Like all anime series I've ever seen, Evangelion
is horribly dubbed. I don't know what the hell the problem is, except every show seems to be dubbed by the same four or five reekingly incompetent actors. My guess is some translation studio executive is pocketing money that could be spent on a better dubbing budget.
On another subject; what do Mulholland Drive
, King Kong
(2005), and Ellie Parker
all have in common? They all star Naomi Watts as a struggling actress. Think about it, won't you?
