Remember that time five minutes ago when I said I had never see a Miyazaki film before? Turns out, I had!
See, I'm watching the opening ad of My Neighbor Totoro, and there's an ad about Disney releasing all the Studio Ghibli films. I'm like, ho-hum, good for you. Then, I seethe title of Kiki's Delivery Service, and again, whatevs, I'm too cool to care. But then clips of said film start playing, and I realize, that is a movie from my fucking CHILDHOOD, yo! I had owned it when I was but a wee lass, back when I obsessively watched the Sailor Moon prequels on VHS. In fact, I had seen twice before the tape/DVD (can't remember) went and disappeared, either lost or sold or given away, never to be seen by me again. What a world! Oh, how I toiled away, trying to remember the name of that broom-riding young witch and her cat, whose name I still can't rember.
Carry on with your lives.
