Ponyo, Ponyo, Ponyo...

Ponyo, Ponyo, Ponyo, fishy in the sea,

Tiny little fishy, who could you really be?

Ponyo, Ponyo, Ponyo, magic set you free,

Oh she's a little girl with a round tummy.

  I guess it's pretty obvious which song is stuck in my head at this point...^^ All because I went on a Google search for Ghibli films. I am looking for the next film that my "Ghibli group" will watch next. Requests include, "PONYO! PONYO! Pick Ponyo this time!" I pardoned the request because I decided that we will save the "Lovey-touchy-feel-y" movies for last. We have seen Ponyo before. After it was released on DVD, we got it on Netflix. It was really good, so don’t get me wrong.

(BTW, Fujimoto was total AWESOMESAUCE! Fun fact, the English voice of Fujimoto was Liam Neeson. He was Qui-Gon-Jinn in the new/first Star Wars. AND I JUST READ ON IMDB THAT HE WAS THE VOICE OF ASLAN ON NARNIA! Now I know why Fujimoto and Aslan and Qui-Gon are all amazing. Yes.)

 I had a discussion with one of the members. This is how it went:

Me: Hey, what film do you want to see next?

(Let’s assume her name is Hyuga. I call her that anyway 'cuz she likes Hinata Hyuga from Naruto.) I don't know, what's there?

Me: Well, I want to see Princess Mononoke...What do you think?

Hyuga: Is it nice, or EPIC?

Me: Well, it's rated PG-13...

Hyuga: ~Smiles~ Sure! ~Walks away~

 I am kinda in an Anime mood tonight. I watched bits and pieces of Naruto episodes 30, and 31.  Only because I wanted to know what Orochimaru's voice sounded like. He is a very...interesting?...character. Little did I know that I already knew what he sounded like. The guy who does his voice also does Amon's voice, from The Legend of Korra. (Steve Blum) Amazing how you figure out things in a crazed Anime mood. I think to finish that; I will do a Manga-marathon. I need to start Volume 10 of Naruto. A Splendid Ninja. Rock Lee VS Gaara. I know for a fact the Lee gets basically destroyed. Totally crushed when I figured that out...

  5 more things tonight:
The Cosby Show is on TVland now, I hadn't known that and now I am excited. ^^
My favorite song--at this point--by The Script is The End Where I Begin.
The Saga Begins is the greatest song ever. :D Almost as good as Weird Al's play on "My Sharona." MY BOLOGNA! Teehee.
PS: I am a pixie. And yes, they do express emotion. Despite what "some people I know" think. ♥
I am addicted to "Lights" by Ellie Goulding. Adele and Ellie are both British, I believe. Love. :)

  This day whopped my rear. Exhausted.

  1. I must applaud you for blowing my mind not once, but twice in this post. I had totally not made the connection between Liam Neeson and Aslan. Same with the Orochimaru/Amon voice actor (ok, so I don't watch Naruto, so I've only seen/heard Orochimaru once. Probably. Blew my mind anyway.)

    As a proper response to that, did you know that Mark Hamill (aka Luke Skywalker) voiced The Joker in Batman the Animated Series?

    1. Thanks! It blew my mind as well!

      In response to your question, no, I didn't know that Mark Hamill voiced The Joker. I knew that he did voices in a bunch of different animated TV shows, i.e Regular Show. But now that you mentioned it, I looked it up. Seems he was in a bunch of Super Hero shows. Thanks for the knowledge!! :)

      I now realize that I didn't mention who the voice actor for Amon was...Huh. Well, anyway, it was Steve Blum.
