I'm not campaigning but I have got so many phone calls automated and live to vote for someone. Actually I have never gotten phone calls like this before. I plan to vote with my absentee ballot. This is the most exciting voting season I've ever seen.

"Skip Beat!"

Promising anime currently being subbed about a girl striving to become a pop idol after being dumped by her rising star "boyfriend" who used her like a slave. Just saw episode 3 which was the best one so far!

Utada Hikaru... another jdrama theme song! "Eternally - Drama Mix"

Apparently "Innocent Love" is airing right now in Japan. I think it sounds good. The drama looks promising too (lots of pretty people! that's how shallow I am!).

Great music-based anime that I thoroughly enjoyed watching. I found a new streaming anime website to watch it on:

"The Duchess"

I enjoyed this great looking, well acted movie about the Duchess of Devonshire back in the 1700s whose life mirrored that of her relation Princess Diana. Keira Knightley is, of course, luminous as the fashion-forward and free-thinking wife of the Duke, played by Ralph Fiennes who treads a fine line as "Prince Charles." It seemed like a really expensive Masterpiece Theatre movie which of course is A-OK with me.

"E.T. : the Extra-Terrestrial" still great movie

Spielberg at his sentimental best. Cast is top-notch. Captures what I view as romanticized 80's suburban life with newly built tract houses and wise-cracking, but nice white kids of divorced parents. Remember sobbing at ten years old in the theater with my aunt and soon-to-be uncle. Still makes me sob!

Sherlock Holmes on tv

I really like the British tv series with Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Holmes that was done in the 80s. Seems like everytime I catch the show on PBS or A&E, I see the same show "The Solitary Cyclist" which is playing on channel 6 right now. This must be the third or fourth time.

Addictive snack

Flamin' Hot Funyuns are delicious. Just a little heat with your deep fried onion flavored corn meal snack.

"Vampire Knight"

Good anime with teenage vampires and forbidden love between human and vampire... sounds like "Twilight" which I am also trying to read. The second season is supposed to start showing in Japan in early October!
