  1. I’m reading this at the moment coincidentally, and it’s worth knowing that Huysman’s A Rebours that the central character always bangs on about is available as a free translation in the Kindle store. It’s some sort of group effort that is occasionally clunky and sometimes just plain wrong (high ricks instead of hayricks, etc) but nevertheless captures the wonderful lyricism of the writing.
  2. No - I find it almost impossible not to picture Dorothy when he’s speaking!
  3. If you like David Sedaris, he regularly does excellent shows on Radio Four. He’s got a great voice, he sounds like one of the Golden Girls.
  4. I saw Akira at that ICA event...a mind blowing experience.
  5. I love Ponyo! Not as much as I love these guys though...
  6. Managed to catch the first ep of this today and I loved it, nothing more to add really! That soundtrack though...superb stuff.
  7. Watch it again in with the subtitles if you can, those kids have a completely different nature because their voices jar against their old faces.
  8. Except it was written in Japanese, for Japanese people to act, and often with specific Japanese voices in mind. If you can’t read subtitles it’s acceptable, but otherwise no. You make your own choices naturally, but I will never listen to a dub our of choice. What’s the point? EDIT: Unless there is only a dub I guess, but does that even happen these days?
  9. There are some people who have only ever seen Akira as an English dub, so they think the experiment kids all have stupid voices.
  10. The problem with all of your ideas for this is that they would be interesting possibly once, and then just get in the way of excellent racing every other time. I don’t think you’ve really got any idea why people love Mario Kart. Also, you don’t seem to be aware you are supposed to hit the bumpers, not dodge them.
  11. I gave this a pos for the Yamadas comment, but I should also add that I firmly believe anyone who watches any Ghibli film dubbed into English should be facing a very long prison term, and that includes children.
  12. Eight votes now! But the real crime is how The Wind Rises has zero votes...it’s a film of rare and delightful beauty however you look at it.
