^_^;; thanks. i've been working here only since late november of 2002. but 
i'm really liking it... before that, i worked for (and freelanced for) a 
variety of other publications.

yeah. i  do like hartman's performance, and i really like phil hartman as 
well, but in two ways i don't think it works. (a) it's got too many 
oneliners, which seem to grow old after a few viewings, and (b) it's very, 
very different than the character in the japanese version. i am not so much 
into radical reimaginings as part of a localization attempt. still, i think 
kirsten dunst is wonderful. i don't tend to watch anime dubbed (for a 
variety of reasons i won't go into just now) but it's one of my favorites 
all the same.

>_Castle in the Sky_ on DVD as well as _Spirited Away_, neither of which 

spirited away is great. i saw it once in the theatre, and i need to see it 
more to drink it all in.. i barely have a more coherent opinion of it than 
that. i've never seen castle, and i'm really looking forward to it.
