Ghibli-ing! | October 29, 2011

by Joe

The Ghibli Museum was pure magic :D They didn’t let people take pictures inside, but I’m glad that rule is in place because you really do appreciate the place more through your eyes, instead of through your camera’s viewfinder.

I did manage to take a few pictures outside, though!






As a huge fan of Studio Ghibli’s work (Grave of the Fireflies, Princess Mononoke, My Neighbor Totoro, etc.), the whole place was an emotional and goosebump-y experience. Every little detail they put into the exhibits and even the building (which was designed by Miyazaki himself, I read!) is awe-inspiring. If you’re a fan of Ghibli’s work, drop what you’re doing now and go. Just go :D If you’re not as big a fan as I am, you may not get the same feelings of inspiration, but even as an aspiring animator or admirer of animation, the Ghibli Museum is definitely a worthwhile and unforgettable place to visit at least once in your lifetime :D

Thanks for waiting for the scene! Here it is as promised! :D

Enjoy Scene 32 – “The Magister – Part Two”!

If you were the most interesting man in the world, they’d let you touch the exhibits. Unfortunately that honor belongs to the guy here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L-4zfsy6rsM

Vampires are more powerful than Samuel ? Ôo… incredible, since his capacities are amazing. I thought he was like the best of the best when it comes to mind-crafting or moving objects with his mind.

I wonder why Dominik didn’t just ‘marry’ Katherine once they both became elders and Samuel a living mind.

Seeing this update just makes me remeber that Andrius is still out there doing who knows what.
His plan is seems more fearsome than the ‘vampire army’ plan Dominik has.

So, sam is the one who lead to vampires having the power of the mind. It seems to be implied that’s all he has. That does mean inner joe is not samual. Joe has all the powers that vampires have, perhaps more. samual didn’t hide from the sensors, where Joe can. No indication of superspeed or strength. No invulnerability (shy of simply stopping anything from hitting him). It seems, since the vampires learn all their powers, they could use joe, for his. only problem-they cant just force him to teach them, as his makes it so they can’t rip him apart, if he trains his mind, since, unlike samual, he can actually beat vamps at that.

for anyone who doesnt care to read the speal, Joe seems to be more powerful than the vamps when the portion of his mind that controls his power isn’t suppressed. (yes, I mean Joe, not Samual. Joe’s mind is where the power came from, i think, so the body won’t remember them. If it can, with Samuals mental discipline (even with relatively low power), the colony, and a huge area around, could be made safe.

also, the elders. so what happens if samual meets them now?

Katherine is the one Elder that is part of the 3 that keeps messing around with things, and i bet she’s the one that was stopping Dom’s Zompires from attacking Bernie. She probably also has something to do with Samuel being inside of Joe’s body. That just reminded me about Adrius and Cross, I wonder what those 2 are up to? Even though he is kinda evil, I like Andy. and Dom isnt tooo bad… or he wasnt. he’s starting to cause problems now. And now that we’re on the topic of vanishing charecters, WHATS HAPPENING TO Greybane and ScruffleBeck. (and Dr. Nick, though we dont realy care about him.

Great… Joe just made deals with Sams two greatest enemies… He helped Andrius escape AND made a pacting deal with Dominik that could also have implications for Sam since the two are the same person now and a promise from one is a promise from both(three if you count Dark)

This relationship between Katherine and Samuel reminds of the relationship between Leonardo DiCaprio and Marion Cotillard in Inception with the creating of worlds in the dream state that is, also this makes Andrius seem even more devious than he ever was before, I wonder if he carries the same hatred as his father?

Though,Sam gotta search for a new body. There are loads out there. >_>

Well,welcome to this group of posters ‘n’ the author. Your mind will be probably blown.

Wait a minute. Samuel mentioned machines earlier, so he knows of the Pocalypse well enough. And he mentioned a living mind. Since Joe was unconscious from a coma, maybe someone had attempted to put him in Joe’s body, but failed since Joe was still conscious after all. And Inner Joe was created. So What I am saying is: Samuel became the Superego of Joe, and the alien presence brought Inner Joe, who might be the Id.

Does sam mean that his powers in the real world are less than vamps? Because his powers in the dream world seem pretty well formed.

@Happy Vampire
About ‘the slayer’, it’s pretty darned incoherent (and less then clever) but he’s probably reffering to the Gibli pictures.

1st Picture
Joe: “Hehe, they have sign posts”

3rd Picture
Bernie: *Pokes Robot*

4th Picture
Bernie: *Goes to poke the robot again*
Robot: “If you poke me one more time I will kill you robosuit making geek!!”
Bernie: “Hehehe…” :D

So yeah, pretty much tons of unfunny.
