Have any of you seen Match Point? I have to admit I’m not that much of a Woody Allen fan and I mostly went to see it because of Mr Rhys-Meyers and Miss Johansson but who cares what made me want to watch it in the first place? All that matters is I saw it. And loved it. Every minute of it. It was so intense, so complex, so absolutely convincing ♥
I’m also trying to watch a bit of anime. The new season features so many good series, it’s really hard to keep up with all of them. Mushishi has to be one of my favourites of the season; it’s neo-japanesque (ha!), atmospheric, almost melancholic and natsukashii; and the sceneries are so beautiful, absolutely amazing.
I’m also watching Monster, Garasu no kamen, Eureka seveN, Noein and ParaKisu.
On the manga front, I’ve been reading lots of shoujo classics and newer works by older artists (Kuramochi Fusako, Ikuemi Ryou). I still have subscriptions for Betsuma and Hana to yume so that makes for a nice stack of low quality paper in my apartment and hours of fun for an avid manga reader.

Forgive me for the random anonymous person comment.
Not sure how I ran accross your blog, but I just wanted to give you props for the lovely green layout a la Bloc Party and to say that the words “coin”, “locker” and “baby” put together are nice sounding.
Coffee + Bloc Party + Rhys-Meyers + Johansson = awesome
Oh thanks, liz!
