Jessica over at Peace Dividend is looking forward to seeing the new Hayao Miyazaki film, the released-under-Disney-rather-than-Miramax Spirited Away. Well, new for most of us. Apparently, former Pixar employees (and, y'know, folks in that one island nation in the Pacific -- Ocean of Death!) already enjoyed it ages ago.
But we will not hold this against people. Much. Publicly.
Scott, whose site Mozilla doesn't care for at all, mentions Ebert & (ugh) Roeper "babbling with glee" on a recent show, but I didn't see the review(s) on the show site. For the best, probably. Seeing/hearing Roeper just makes me miss Gene Siskel and think how Elvis Mitchell should have got the gig instead.
That link takes you to the Treatment, Mr. Mitchell's show on KCRW (which seems odd, as he's on staff at The New York Times, but if Tom Joyner can do it. . .). This week's guest: comics writer and artist Frank Miller.
Tom Joyner used to do the morning drivetime show in Dallas, then the afternoon drivetime in Chicago on WGC-triple-dot-that-I by getting on a plane and flying back and forth. Hence, the nicknames "The Fly Jock" and "The Hardest Working Man in Radio". Which, yes, with satellite feeds and what-not was unnecessary, but some of us like the idea of a local DJ actually being local. We're wacky that way.
Now he's got a nationally syndicated show, the availability of which probably maps pretty well with the Black population of the U.S. Can't hear it in Vermont? And this surprises you?
They're lying about Minnesota, by the way. WRNB/BlackMusicAmerica is cable-only.
Just played - Miss Teena Marie. Hell yeah, I'm listening to TJMS now.
