The World Through Your Eyes


#306

So I came across this lovely item whilst browsing:

I hope it comes with a miniature excavator.
SX466


#307

Well that sucks.


#308

Oh no! :frowning_face: I hope you have a back up…


#309

I’ve got 6 other pillows but I generally use two at a time. That was a newer one though. Then again, it was also 4 dollars.

So even though it’s not quite as cold as it had been in previous months, spring is taking its sweet time getting here. To get to see most flowers, we still have to go to some indoor gardens. Here are a couple of pictures of our visit today:

Paige NO!


#313

These arrived today.


#314

Are these $2 US bills in demand? I still have one somewhere.


#315

They are not too common, and some people collect them. I think I have one somewhere too…


#316

I bought them off ebay. Approx $4 each including shipping.

Reason I got them is I still remember what happened to the $2 bill my parents gave me as a kid and I feel bad about it still.


#317

And now this arrived!

This is

BEAUTIFUL


I recently finally watched Miyazaki's Lupin The Third and I absolutely loved it! I've now watched all his featured films. One of my life goals is to go to the Ghibli museum* one day and watch his shorts.

Which movie of his is your favorite? Mine is Porco Rosso :pig:, for the beautiful flight scenes, Porco’s sense of righteousness and the overall message against extremism – and other things that would spoil it for everyone else.


#319

That is a really hard question actually. I would probably have to say Nausicaä and the Valley of the Wind.

Kiki’s Delivery Service was the movie that got me started with Studio Ghibli.

I’ve also yet to watch The Secret World of Arrietty, From Up on Poppy Hill, My Neighbor Totoro, The Wind Rises, and Lupin the Third.

Also need to rewatch Porco Rosso and The Cat Returns.


#320

Oh Nausicaä is so cool! I really like the universe there.

The movie that got me into Ghibli was Spirited Away. My mom took me to see it when I was REALLY young and I loved it! All the other kids were traumatized :joy:

I recently had a talk with some childhood friends that admitted to being afraid of it to this day! The Miyazaki power knows no bounds.

You’ve got plenty of amazing movies ahead of you. Totoro of corse is a classic, but I think all of them are great. I watched The Wind Rises on the first public screening in Brazil and cried my eyes out with my mom and one of my closest friends. Make sure to read the story surrounding the creation of the movie and its personal relationship to Miya-san at some point!

I hope you enjoy watching and rewatching his brilliance with that wonderful book as your guide. :blush:


#321

Yeah, I’ve been looking to buy the collection since I saw it released on Amazon. Glad I found it for less than the $400 it’s going for on Amazon.


#322

It’s my b-day today and one of my closest friends had my favorite flowers delivered to my doorstep.

Some of you know I’ve been going through a rough patch lately, so it really brightened my day to open the door and see them there.

I thought I’d share it here. Sorry it’s not the best pic, I was rushing to get to college.

My name’s in there so Im going to reupload. :blush:

That should do it.


#323

Happy birthday! :hugs:


#324

Not my photo, but I was passing nearby the Stone of Bismantova and it’s always pretty intimidating.
A few million years ago, was the only land above water, and more recently has inspired Dante for his vision of the purgatory.
Lots of scary stories around this place…

And another similar place that some may also like is Civita di Bagnoregio, also known as the dying place, a medieval town built on top of a steep mountain, connected to the world by a bridge… named devil’s bridge, of course.

Only read this now! Thanks, dusty! :poop:
