I watched Summer Wars
today, and I'm still trying to figure out what I think of it. It always takes me a while -- I take a long time to classify new inputs. Some of my favorite music, for example, I had a very tepid reaction to at first (and I'll obscure the specifics, just because the details embarrass me.)
But no, I liked Summer Wars
a great deal. I know that much already. I was cheering as hard as I could, and I'm not ashamed to admit to crying a little at the appropriate times. It has that quality of making you feel that you're part of something greater, something that really is noble, no matter that its full shape is difficult to apprehend from your normal vantage. It takes you out of yourself -- or at least it does for me. You may react differently. We are very different, after all.
But anyway. I apologize for taking the last month off, I really do (despite my policy of not doing such things.) There were many things I wanted to write, but I spent the last week catching up at work, and prior to that I was very ill, and before that I had other things to work on, which I'll doubtless tell you about someday.
