Instead, Gaiman thinks that everything that went wrong with Princess Mononoke, “came down to Harvey Weinstein being petty.” He tells a story of how, after the film’s first official screening at the New York Film Festival, Weinstein informed Gaiman that he planned to renege on Disney’s deal not to cut the film.

Not only a rapist of people but of films too.

Okay three two one let’s jam

A lot of that specialness came from the crew involved. Cowboy Bebop’s director, Shinichirō Watanabe, delegated work. He gave the staffers at the Sunrise studio enough room to put themselves into the show. “As a director, there are times when I don’t feel like dealing with details,” he said.1

Each person in the team is a master of their own craft and they were given the freedom to put themselves into the characters they created.

movie vs book (i adore them both) 

How could you leave this in the notes, excellent addition

Actually, this makes the childification of Michael in the movie when he’s 15 in the book really funny:

Sophie, a 20-ish year old woman from a fantasy land where getting married at 16 or 17 does not seem to be unusual: Yes, this is a young man who is almost an adult.

Another reason why AMTRAK sucks and it even isn’t their fault

As BLET forcefully put it in a May release, “The time has come for our Nation’s railroads to be held accountable for their actions, and reconcile the long-term effects of their greed.”

Source: Corporate billionaires are wrecking the supply chain. Just look at the railroads.

Then, the train companies will fail hard as they no longer have employees in operations, only in corporate. And then the government (state, federal) will have to intervene after deciding the train companies are Too Big To Fail™.

The people who railroaded the system into oblivion will walk away with billions, while the workers lose everything, and the taxpayers foot the bill.

“The whole episode has been strange for his three children, especially his 14-year-old son, who is big into TikTok. “‘Why is my dad, the most cringe guy in the universe, everywhere on TikTok?’” Mr. Theroux said, giving voice to his son’s reaction.”

Biking home to/from work takes me at least 25 minutes at a hard ride. I had to make that trip in the middle of the night at a much harder pace.

a friend of mine tried to sell his soul on ebay and the starter price was $10 and people were bidding on it but before anything happened ebay took it down and sent him an email explaining that if he was selling a soul that didn’t actually exist then it was against their policy and if he was selling a real soul then that is a human body part and it is also against their policy
