textless versions of the covers from the postcard sets—please don’t reupload these, i took the time to scan and clean them and would appreciate if they don’t end up elsewhere.
Sometimes, just for a second, out of the corner of his eye or in the morning when his vision is still blurry or if he’s had too much wine, she looks just the tiniest bit like his sister. Her eyes, soft and sad. Her hair, in golden ripples around her face.
one of the funniest stories about Utena i can remember is actually from the original CPM localization dubbing project, related by Crispin Freeman (who voiced Touga) at a con once
basically he was involved somewhat in production and they were going through the episodes and talking about how to handle this and that—the Utena dub is famous for having really poor directing, though, so they ended up having a rather strange conversation about episode 7, “Unfulfilled Juri” where they all just sat around were like “man we dont really know what this Juri girl’s deal is, this is really confusing”
and Crispin Freeman just sat there staring at them for a minute before saying “she’s…a closeted lesbian???? did you not get that???”
and they were like “WHAT NO WAY WHAT that cant be it” and he was like “uh. yes. yes that was it WATCH IT AGAIN COME ON” and they did watch it again and they were like “OH WOW SHE REALLY IS, HUH”
The dub really is miserable. Poor Crispin.
Reblog this if you remember The Great Strikethrough of 2007
we’re old, guys.
What about those of us who remember the great Blackout of 2005?
You know, the time someone literally pressed the big red DO NOT PRESS button and turned LJ off.
… We are so old =(
I think I met 50% of the people I follow on LJ!
I’d say I miss LJ, but it’s technically still there.
I miss how LJ used to be prior to it getting fucked over by Russian hackers causing massive extensive DNS disruptions.
Oh man. I DO remember the Great Blackout…
#I miss lj mostly because interacting with people on here sucks #reblogging is no way to have a conversation
Patty and I met on LJ! 7 years together later this month.
On LJ since ‘02. Still there.
THE GREAT BLACKOUT WAS A HORRIBLE TIME
I would use my LJ more if more people were on it, but there’s honestly no point. I just miss LJ culture a lot :B
