How fucking gorgeous is Diablo Cody!
That's all... back to twiddling my thumbs I think.
DiCaprio Kickstarts Akira
Leonardo DiCaprio will put a big screen spin on anime classic Akira. With backing from Warner Bros he'll produce what could turn out to be a two part epic. In the original film by Katsuhiro Otomo the action unfolds in 'New Tokyo' shortly after a nuclear holocaust. It centres on a teen biker who is subjected to a government experiment that unleashes his latent powers. Oh, and he has to, like, save the world and stuff.
The Hollywood version will relocate the story to New Manhattan, a city kindly rebuilt from the rubble with Japanese money. It's the stuff of fantasy.
General Jack D. Ripper: Were you ever a prisoner of war?
Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake: Well, yes I was, matter of fact, Jack, I was.
General Jack D. Ripper: Did they torture you?
Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake: Uh, yes they did. I was tortured by the Japanese, Jack, if you must know; not a pretty story.
General Jack D. Ripper: Well, what happened?
Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake: Oh, well, I don't know, Jack, difficult to think of under these conditions; but, well, what happened was they got me on the old Rangoon-Ichinawa railway. I was laying train lines for the bloody Japanese puff-puff's.
General Jack D. Ripper: No, I mean when they tortured you did you talk?
Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake: Ah, oh, no... well, I don't think they wanted me to talk really. I don't think they wanted me to say anything. It was just their way of having a bit of fun, the swines. Strange thing is they make such bloody good cameras.
There are no words running through my mind
They were there (Now they’re not)
As if the thought of speaking them made me numb
I thought them
But can’t say them because the thought struck me dumb
I still know these thoughts (they’re in the core of me)
They’re my hearts desire (they’re my whole being)
Yet still, I can’t quite seem
To say the words, which my soul means
Just three little words (not words enough)
I bandied those words around before
The words I want now must mean much more
They can’t be little, of that my mind is sure
For if they were little, what would I hesitate for?
Perhaps my soul isn’t sure
My heart, my being, my core
My mental block is doubt
Always seem to be governed by this love we have
Our new technology
Oh now there is no sound
For we all live underground
one of us was crying in a comedy club and the other was rolling their eyes and making very audible and exasperated sighs
I felt angry... unfairly treated, unjustly rejected, I felt that I deserved a second chance...
I learnt to never pretend that something is something it is not on the basis of what it once was
Japan has four seasons, count them! FOUR! Stick that in your pipe and smoke it Mr. Rest Of The World, because we don't care how many seasons you have,we are better because we have, not one, not two, not three but FOUR, yep... go knock your head on the corner of a block of tofu and die!
