Ani-Monday on September 10

Last night Ghost in the Shell was on Ani-Monday. I had full intentions upon watching this, and in fact turned of Metroid Prime 3 in order to do so. Unfortunately, by the time I snapped awake at 11:40ish, I realized that I wasn't going to be watching that much television.

Somehow, I got infected with a disease and now my throat is burning, my eyes and neck hurt and I can barely breathe through my nose.

Yeah, me!

And then to top if off, I'm allergic to the medicine that you'd normally take for this (psuedophrine) so I've got to take the other stuff, which IMO doesn't work as good. But if it did, then I'd probably not be able to take it either. That's just the way of things, y'know.

So, with the dual facts of my being sick and not actually watching the movie last night, you don't get some beautiful insights into Ghost today. But hey, if you want, Google it. There are over 1.8 million sites dealing with the philosophy of Ghost in the Shell alone. And let's face it, despite the beautiful animation and the compelling cop-based storyline, it's the philosophy and the questions it asks about what makes us human that is why Ghost is such an awesome movie.

Enough rambling. I'll post the review for Stardust tomorrow morning, but for now, I'm going to curl up and collapse.
