That freakin' tears it. Now I'm pissed.
I don't know what makes me angrier, the Disney Corporation using its clout to force some asinine computerized fake pop "song" onto Hayao Miyazaki's movie, or the cheerful praise from the comments on the YouTube page. Have all people become mindless cattle?!
Am I wrong to be upset? Should I care? Have we been sold out? Am I over-reacting? My punk rock, '90s grunge instincts tell me one thing, but I'm wise enough to know my limitations.
The funny thing is that I've had the original Ponyo song stuck in my head all day. It's really a wonderful children's song that stays with you forever. But then again, Hayao Miyazaki isn't running some mammoth corporate conglomerate that feeds on our children like vampires.
Feel free to tell me if I'm completely off my rocker on this. What's the consensus among the Ghibli Freaks?
