Watanabe and Kanno together again!

I thought this was exciting! Sakamichi no Apollon television anime was confirmed on Friday, and it will reunite Shinichiro Watanabe and Yoko Kanno. Anime News Network has the full story and even a link to the promotional video. Check it out!

This is going to have a jazz soundtrack,and we all know how well […]

A new year is upon us!

It’s now 2012, another year closer to 2071 and the events depicted in Cowboy Bebop. I’m pretty sure the Earth should have been laid waste by now because of the gate accident, but we won’t let a little thing like THAT stop us now, will we? 🙂

I’ve discovered that I am no longer compelled […]

We ARE our pasts.

I found a link today that made me happy, an article about one of my favorite movies, the John Frankenheimer-directed Seconds.

I provided the link above in case anyone else has seen the movie and is interested in reading a very cool article about it. If you HAVEN’T seen it, I think you want to. […]

Cowboy Bebop Live Action: Investor Lawsuit

Ok, this isn’t making a whole lot of sense to me. Going to have to read it again in the morning. Joshua Long’s production company is being sued by investors, and somehow the Cowboy Bebop live action movie is said to be involved. Read the full article here.

The plaintiffs’ lawsuit alleges that the e-mail, […]

“Corgis, the ‘new cat’ of internet culture?”

Someone tweeted this blog posting I have to share:

Apparently Ein is a popular name for corgis and we’ll no doubt be seeing a lot of corgies on the internet (if we aren’t already).

I’d love a corgi, but I’m up to my armpits in cats (don’t ask) and I doubt a dog would […]

My Swordfish II pics

Pureblood-3 asked for pics. Here ya go, honey. 🙂

Wings folded up (floppy)

Here, the wings are folded up. They don’t stay very well.

Swordfish with the wings deployed

The second one with the wings deployed looks much better I think. You […]

Some interesting casting choices

Some message boards are having fun trying to come up the perfect casting for the live action Cowboy Bebop movie. I’m not into it, personally. I prefer to be surprised by unknown or lesser known actors. Plus I feel quite strongly that Spike is Japanese (seeing as how the character was modeled after Yusaku Matsuda, […]

Interesting piece about Watanabe san

I must say, I’m enormously fond of google alerts. 🙂

There’s an excellent question posted to the most recent Answer Man column on the Anime News Network that I have to share. Answerman answers a question about Shinichiro Watanabe.

I hope what he says is correct about Watanabe san, because if it is, it is […]

Live Action Movie: How to make it happen

Ok, so I’m trying to come up with a story for the new fic I’ve started with little success. I keep thinking about Akahashi Jin as Spike, which got me thinking about the Cowboy Bebop live action movie and I think I have a potential solution.

What do you think about this?

Don’t call the […]
