Her clothes are green, but her heart is black.

A big black spider just ran down the side of my bed, across a few inches of floor, and between the pages of the JASNA newsletter leaning against my bookshelf

which is actually great, because when it was on the side of my bed, it was a couple inches below my shoulder

and I don’t know where it was before that.

Prairie sunset.

Are you watching Utena? I’ve been watching Utena!

I am! I’m about a dozen episodes in and getting more absorbed the darker it gets. It’s excellent to know that you’ve been watching it too!

Good stuff. I’m halfway through the third arc (I’m getting the DVDs from the library so there are pauses while I wait for the next one to come in). It’s so good and so baffling at the same time. I might have been better prepared if I’d ever watched another anime in my life, but I’m enjoying the surreal confusion.

I haven’t watched much anime before either and I totally agree that it was a significant mental jump into Utena’s surrealism. I’ve been watching Sailor Moon just in the past couple months as the episodes are added to Hulu (thanks to themarysue's coverage, the only reason that I even knew about it), and I'm SO GLAD I had even that minimal (and very different) exposure to some of the features of anime styles before starting Utena. I was so thrown by its unusual tones after watching the first episode that I didn't expect to continue, but it really got under my skin. I'm very absorbed by the complexity of the relationships, exaggerated stylization, and emotional storytelling logic. And the colors.

In Colombia we say "frenado de triciclo" to say that sparse and patchy moustache. Frenado is to slow down in a car, but here it refers the spot left in the floor when you slow down violently. Triciclo is a little vehicule of three wheels little kids use to learn to ride a bike.

I know I said I wouldn’t post any more, but the Colombian word for a patchy ‘tache is TRICYCLE SKIDMARK.

TRICYCLE SKIDMARK

[on diversity in media] I think its social responsibility. I think it’s our responsibility to stand up and say what we want. It think if you look at television in the past two years, it’s becoming the decade of the female. Like, all these new shows with female leads. Even if you look at television, as well as cable, as well as films, there’s been a resurgence, as far as the leading woman in Hollywood, which is great. And I think we’re also at the point now…you know, it’s interesting…x
