Cool Movie News

The latest Miyazaki (Howl's Moving Castle - based on the book by Diane Wynne Jones) has broken Japanese box office records.

Myazaki also produced 2001's gorgeous Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, Kiki's Delivery Service, My Neighbour Totoro and Nausicaa: Valley of the Winds and is generally considered the best director of animation in the world.

Two gorgeous music videos here - one of which is bjork-like and one of which is more techno-like - both very pretty though.

Now at Hugh's, helping him and Roddy put together a new PC. So far I've mostly got thermal-paste all over my fingers.
