The essay is written. I’m procrastinating on typing it. I’m not sure why, but I needed to make that observation official so that I can more properly kick my ass for it.

Bad Saxifrage! Bad! No cookie.

BitTorrent is loverly. I downloaded a fansub of Kaze no tani no Nausicaä, aka Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, aka Not The Heinous Editing Butchery That Is Called Warriors of the Wind. It’s impossible to get a DVD of the original movie except in Japan, despite the fact that Disney has bought the distribution license for North America. According to Amazon.com, it’s not slated for release until 2010 (but you can still order it and have it shipped “when it gets here!” Fuckers). When it is finally out, I will get a copy for my self, oh yes I will. But not from Amazon.

greenstorm, you have to see this version some time. The rest of you, too, but Green’s seen the butchered 1986 US version and I know she’ll appreciate the original all the more for it. I’m going to try putting it on SVCDs later when I’m not so busy with school work. Mmm, Miyazaki goodness.

Wanna burn me a copy?

Also, um, does it have any way for me to understand it? Subbing, etc?

Yep, it's a "fansub," so it's been translated and captioned by friendly internet otaku.

I'll see about getting them into SVCD format. If not, they will fit as avi files on a couple CDs.
