Video - Dupree's Paradise



Well, kids, it was bound to happen sooner or later. I'd have to play something from Frank Zappa. I'm on a bit of a Zappa kick at the moment - fueled by my Sony PS-X75 turntable and a stack of records - so when I found this video at YouTube, obviously, I had to post it.

The hook for the Ghibli blog - hah - is that this musical score, a classical work conducted by Pierre Boulez and released on Zappa's album, "Perfect Stranger," is set to a 1976 clay animation by Bruce Bickford. I wouldn't say the animation is created with Zappa's composition in mind, but it does seem to fit nicely, and it's a great opportunity to enjoy all artists involved.

Is this all just a cheap stunt to delay talking about Goro Miyazaki's crummy movie? Ah, who knows? Whatever. Enjoy debating this one!

A wag of the finger: tisk, tisk . . .

Tsk tsk... Just talk about Goro's movie already! Or, if you dont want to, then... talk about something else! Like the fact that Ponyo is scheduled to be released sometime around June or July, or Hayao Miyazaki's new manga that's coming out, or the lovely new pictures on Ghibliworld of Momose Yoshiyuki's new video.

Or, perhaps, if you don't want to talk about Ghibli, then you can talk about this lovely new movie that's out. Coraline! It's beautiful stop motion animation, its delightfully creepy, and it is truly amazing to watch. If you dont believe me, the trailer is here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Js7wxoqeVK0&feature=related
Have you seen it? ^^

I agree with Anonymous: Please talk about something . . .

I love your blog! Keep up the posting!
Here's another thing you could talk about: Ponyo will be released in August 14, 2009, and the title (fot the US release) has been shortened to 'Ponyo'.

Or you could talk about the Japanese release of the Ponyo DVD on July 3rd.

Hi, I recently saw your blog highlighting the availability of the Jarinko Chie subtitles .srt file.

I thought you might like to know that the Future Boy Conan subtitles .srt file can be found at
